SIDE GLANCES By George Clark A Third Party Senator Morris refused to km! his support to a third party movement, and thereby doubtless shows his ]»lii- ical wi-'dom. N'eveilhck's:', ono is forced to wonder if .sooner or hitler some such movement, will not m;ikc itself manifest, with « good deal of force. It is a truism loilay that there is very little fiimhimenlal difference between the two major parlies. The divisions within the parties—Senator Norris and Senator Mo=c.s, for instance, are technically members of the sainu party, as are Senators I led in and Vi'ajj- ncr—are far more striking than the contrast between the two parlies as a whole. . This is hardly a healthy situation. Eventually there must be some sort of realignment, lu the past, such realignments have usually, been touched off by the appearance 6f new parties. Will thnt bt; tlie case in this situation? And if so, how far ahead of us is the realignment? Savings \Ve have at hand some interesting figure's on savings bank deposits in the state of New York. Of course everyone knows that there is a lot of money in New York, but we arc not talking about the money that belongs lo the big stock and bond men, but of that credited lo the bank accounts of some 5,000,GCO of the plain everyday farmers and working people that make up the rank and file of Me,\v,,Yoj'k .state's IKfphlAtion,' just- as thoy'do^ of every American slate. These 5,000,000 folks, nearly one- half the total population of the -state, • had on deposit in savings accounts last November 1 the impressive sum of 54,598,433,741, which is plenty of money and something over ?liOO,000,- 000 more than they had on deposit a year before. With over 5,000,000 savings accounts, averaging $900, hard time i. do not mean starvation fare to many residents of New York state. That cash reserve, belonging to the common people of Ihe state, is a mighty bulwark against the more painful consequences of crop failures, price depression, or unemployment.

Under regulation such as these an agent Is authorized lo commit an ollensc which Is at least as great an evil its the one that he Is seeking to punWi. and what Is worse, ;t great government approves this practice of deceit. If there Is anything belter calculated to brlnu prohibition Into dlbrejiutc I am not aware of what 11 could be.

This Is not the correct Idea of prohibition or prohibition enforcement, and It can not win as n public policy.

Cornwallis. British commander, lad left part of his force at Prince- j on, N. J., in order to hurry south' o catch Washington. He found lim between Trenton and a bend of the Delaware. Thinking that Washington cou!ct not hope to escape, with tlie British army in front of him and Ihe ice-choked river behind, Coruwallis expected'.—" to "bag the old fox" in the'morn-"' ing. ' At night, however, Washington crept stealthily around the British and reached Princeton just at a tune when the American force was being driven back. TOen Washing- ion, riding at the head of his roops, advanced lo within 30 yards of the enemy and directed tlie battle. When the smoke of battle had : cleared the British were found to j have lost heavily. ! Soon after.

The Office of Education docs not give figures to demonstrate thnt, beyond pointing to the fact that in an average group of Americans in 1915, five children were being born each year, whereas,. in. the same average group in 1928 less than lour were being born. Troviile More Playgrounds Thirty-six siatcs. in 1830' made provisions for adequate school playgrounds and move than 60 cities adopted five acres as a minimum standard for elementary school playgrouhds. Many colleges nnd universities developed summer camps \\\ connection with, courses in engineering, geology, biology, botany, zoology, physical education, recreation and forestry. Education of subnormal nnd ab- noimal children has been receiving Cfpeclnl attention, and a federa survey disclosed 736 cities with : population of more than 10,00f which now have special classes and i schools to handle children "deviat- I Ing from average capacity."
