After (he Depression The existing business depression will pas's, in the course of time, like all other disasters. Indeed, signs arc beginning to appfcir which indicate that it is already leaving us, slowly but surely. Rut so far no one .seems to have thought very much about the problems we shall have when the depression is at last ova-. In that connection, n recent report from, Russell Sage Foundation presents some suggestions of considerable importance. It points out, in Hie first place, that the end of the depression will find us in a reconstruction period which will present a number of difficult problems. As John M. Glenn, general director of the Russell Sage Foundation, writes: " one can tell how long the present depression will continue, we know from rather i v fnil records of previous unemployment periods that the ill effects of the present situation on individuals mid families will be felt long after the business situation is improved. The sooner a community begins to organize ! to counteract these'ill effects, the more speedy will be its recovery." And Joanna C. Cokovd, who wrote the Foundation's report, adds: "Long"after factory whsels are again turning, and to the average citizen it seems that things are back to normal, the social agencies will be trying to put together the pieces of human livos which have been shattered by the disaster. People with health of body and mind impaired, ueopla whose cour- age'*an3"iiKlepenrience have been undermined, people at odds with society, broken and scattered family groups, will lie long as a heavy burden resulting from the period of unemployment.. The need of the social agencies for increased public support will be prolonged far past the period of acute distress. An emergency committee should make i'ts plans with this fact w:U in mind." The^ Foundation then recommends that employment committees continue their studies of unemployment after the depression ends. For we have a good deal of unemployment in this country even in prosperous times—seasonal, technological and otherwise—and we have never y-it made any attempt to learn its causes or devise a cure for it. That, indeed, is the crux of the mat- tcr.. We have Imd in any iieriodic bust- juss depressions in America, cadi one bringing an enormous amount of suffering in its train. But we have never learned anything from them. In good times we refuse lo gel ready for them —ami they catch us, as this lasl one did, utterly unprepared. SIDE GLANCES % George Clark bel \vecn tore, he Is. likely to No Clemency During the past two years Governor William 11. Adnnis of Colorado has not once utilized his prerogative of executive clemency, according to the governor's own statement to the Colorado general assembly. Governor Adams fays that 'many cases were brought before him during those two years, but that he carefully investigated each case and concluded that he had no reason to set aside the sentence of the courts. This is a curious record—possibly unique in all America, it ticctns to indicate that Governor Adams is a conscientious governor, anxious to do his duty as he H'CS it. Hut is it not a bil strange to think that not one case reached him in two years' time in which an injustice had been done? The Colorado courts must be operating on a higher _ standard than UIOSB in most other states. Fighting For Nothing Jack Dempscy's 'action in knocking down one of the participants in a wrestling bout which he recently rcf- creul in Texas reminds one that few pugilists, in this day and age, ever use their fists except when they arc in a ring getting paid for it—which is something of a contrast with the old days. On this occasion Dempsey seems to have been quite justified; and it goes without Jsaying that his action drew roars of approval from the audience. But the point we are trying to make is that neither he nor any other boxing champion or near-champion has indulged in any fist fighting, except for pay, for a Jong time. The old-time champions were different. They were rough-and-tumble chaps who fought because they liked it. They'were like John L. Sullivan, who loved to swagger into a saloon, take a few drinks and then announce that he could lick any so-and-so in the house. Hut that sort of thing doesn't seem to happen now. Professional boxing may be in the hands of a fearful bunch of high-binders and chiselers; but the boxers themselves arc more polished and gentlemanly than their predecessors evci< dreamed of being. • tics due to heredity. On the other ' hand, bow-legs may b; the result l of an Insufficient amount of vi:a- jmlu 13 or sunlight. i Most diseases from which human I beings suffer are greatly lnfiuaiicaJ ! by conditions in which they !iv;. j For Instance, cue cannot . have tu"- ' bcrculosls unless cne is infected by the eerra of tuberculosis.

Fox. first attracted attention as a youth of 25 when he avcsc during; a sermon in a prominent Nottin^- hr.rr, church end rebuked the preacher for declaring the authorship of the Scriptures to be tho source of divine truth. "It, is not the Scriptures." cried out Fox, is the Spirit of Goct." For this he was imprisoned. He was subsequently jailed several times as a disturber of the tfeace. His leading doctrines or convictions were: 1. The futility of learning for the v.ork oi the ministry. 2.
