Too many of us who know too little about the causes of crime or their elimination have prejudices thai prevent acceptance of the recommendations of even the best qualified students of the subject. The Laio and the Public Momentous as appears the decision of Federal Judge William Clark of New Jersey holding the Eighteenth amendment invalid, its chief interest seems to be to lawyers, who no doubt will enjoy many a pleasant evening debating the "questions wfilch the judge has raised. So far as concerns the vank and die of citizens, thirsty or otherwise, the opinion of one judge, however learned, is of little consequence. Various •phases of the prohibition law have been tested in the courts so many times that the ordinary man has ceased to take much interest in legal controversies affecting it. He accepts the law as something that is here now and likely to stay for quite a while, and takes his liquor or leaves it alone as his individual taste or conscience dictates. ' It is not an ideal st-ite of affairs, by any means, but it is nothing new in America. The constitution, since its adoption, has had more lip service than active support. It has'been tinned and twisted, nullified or dodged on a good many matters of more import than the taking of a drink of whisky, and it is therefore not surprising that the average citizen, if thirsty, is more concerned with satisfying that thirst than •tfith getting the law changed to make that satisfaction legal. It is a little more surprising, and a good deal more shocking, that a good ninny others actually profess support of a law to the nullification of which they Contribute more or less regularly. The disrespect into which law has fallen in America is probably the most serious problem facing the nation, even in these times of economic stress. The president has recogni/ed this ;nul has sought to find a solution. IIo has had a committee of eminent men studying the cause an;! cure of the condition for many months. Preliminary reports on certain phases of the problem are due before long. But it seems almost too much to hope that even such a distinguished group as that chosen by the president will be permitted to submit a completely honest and non-political appraisal of the situation. Still loss likely is it that, should the commission meet the prob- SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Let,s Hope It's Final It is gratifying to read that the Belgian courts have finally ruled against the American architect, Whitney Warren, in his suit to compel the University of Louvain to restore lo the facade of its library the inscription: "Destroyed by Teutonic fury; restored by American generosity." Mr. Warren has fought a • desperate battle to have that inscription put on the building, although most civilized people would prefer to have it deleted. To try to keep alive old hatreds is an extremely harmful kind of folly, and one is moved to hope sincerely that this check to Mr. Warren's plans will prove final. Porto Rican Diplomats Theodore Hoosevelt, governor of Porto Kico, urges that the U. S. government train young Porto Jticnns for diplomatic, and consular service in South America. Governor Roosevelt points out that Porto Kico is u place where North and South American cultures meet and blend. The Porto Kican is of Spanish culture, i)lood and tradition; but he h, also, proud of his American citizenship. He should make an ideal rcpre- seiilntivc for us below tho equator. Most of our troubles in South America have been due to lack of understanding. As Governor Roosevelt says, the policy he suggests would go far to create a bond of sympathy and comprehension. - -: •• •'Vv w < !i; -r^ Wi# ;£Wf ^gM.^i&mtm? ,,^Jtt* I.^ft!«J'!i H * I ^ f. *.-i>x»<ftJt» V M * "* '- 1 I - IB »..
