Caught But Not Punished The Chicago and Cook County Bunkers' 'Association has issucti a protest— net, evidently, without some justification—against the unusual delay thai lins marked fir;; disposal of the wises of three convicted bandits. In January of 1929 six men invaded a Chicago bank, killed, ;t watchman and got away with $800. Two days later they were captured and they confessed, also implicating themselves in GO other robberies. In April they were tried and convicted; three were sentenced lo life imprisonmnit and three were sentenced to death. Then the law's delay began to operate for the condemned men. A score of stays of execution were issiud. The supreme court heard the case two times. Intercessions were made tu the governor. And now, 17 months after their conviction, the three condemned men have been granted a second hearing by the Board of Pardons and Paroles on their pha of cle-mcncy. This chain of events speaks for itself. Hani as it is to catch a hoodlum in Chicago, it seems to be even harder to do anything effective to him you have caught him. .f.' Mr. Diamond's Jack "If.ys" Diamond^,. N( » w York seems to havo come lo/ thc tnn) ,„ tho road that wtuts m-^f nc paUl O r cvcry J^'^BNJJ^fr. Life in the under- "woriuevidenlly follows n clearly, defined path; years of .struggle, n brief pc- riotl of mastery, an even briefer time of discord nnd rivalry, mid finally a fusillade from the. guns of the niomy. Some such program seems to be Ihc lot of gang leaders everywhere—which might provoke ':ome cloistenxl philosopher to the conclusion that a life of crime does not pay. And perhaps, in the long run, considered judicially, it does not. 1'ut it is worth 1 remembering that tho underworld docs not look at it that way. Tn tho eyes of the underworld, crime does pay, and it pays • exceedingly well; which is why there is such ir pi riled, lethal competition for the positions held by such men as Diamond. OUT OUR WAY The Danger of Delqy The fact that oiw person in every seven over the ago of M now dies of cancel 1 makes it^ extremely imiwrtnnt thftl the gc'ncial public liikc tulvantage of every facility thai medical ,-;clcn,ce offers for the checking of this disease. In tins connection the current bulletin of the American Society for the Control of Cancer prints an article that ia. worth quotintr here. "If there is one fact of which we have clear jjuid certain knowledge," writes Dr. David Arthur Welsh, "it is that early cancer is often curable, Yet in this enlightened age on;i it; astounded ul the extent lo which patients will allow cancers to grow before they seek advice. They iKsitntc until they are in- dee:! lost. Whereas, if they had consulted their doctor al an earlier stage, and the doctor had known what to do, a tragedy might have been avrrtcd. The experience of all who had dealings with cancer is darkened by those tragedies of Too late.' I do not liMilatc to say thai many of llio deaths now credited 10 cancer should more properly be ascribed to neglect." This is worth remembering, If you ova- fimj any growth on your body that might, conceivably, be cancerous—sec your doctor at once. In that way only can you hope to reach safety.

WASHINGTON LETTER By KODNEV DUTCHEK NEA Service Wrllcr WASHINGTON, Oct. 1C.—One ol ic most embarrassing hlcli has arisen In ndtlonal af- Irs for many years concerns '.lie edlcatlon ol the Harding Mcaio- iil (it Marlon; Ohio. There, within great, stone columns i a tomb of white massive sp'.t'n- or, lie the bodies of Presided niiil Irs. Warren Gamaliel Harding. The American people contributed 800,000 to creel, the huge structure f marble, and hundreds of lliou- ands hiivc visilcu u since its co:u- lellon three years ago. No one has even contested the lieory that Ihis memorial to a ead president ought lo be for- lally dedicated by n living n'r'csl- cnt—that U was up to Mr. 'C'oo!- ilge, who didn't, or Mr. Hoover, who he.sii't Nor can anyone be found to de- iy that'the reason the Hanjing Memorial still remains umledl- cnlcd is lu be found in the disclosures which followed Harding'- death. Time proved lhal genial, rusting Mr. Harding liau ^ rascals in his cabinet mid In oth er high positions . of trust. There vcre the books by Nan Urklon "and laston B. Means. Opinions Differ Opinions* dlrTer as to wliethci Coolldfe or Hcover should have gone nhcad vad dedicated the me norlal in any event, but In Washington and In Ohio everyone realized that there would have been a dedication long since It H had not been for the so-called Harding scandals and the political exigencies. Out In Ohio many persons are vocally bitter about the avoidance o[ the job by Coolidge and Hcover. The Harding Memorial Association has just announced suspension of its long efforts to arrange a dedication and Harry M. Dangherty, Hnrriing's close friend rind former attorney-general, explained that a "dedication grudgingly extended Is a compliment neither to the dead nor those who participate in the ceremonies." Editors and others have critl-< and to the American people.. cl?ed Hoover on the ground that' Bui (litre is still reason to be- pointcd out that neither Hoover nor Secretary of the Treasury Mellon nor Chief Justice Hughes, who was Harding's secretary 'of stale, have ever said anything <iu defense of their former chief. Meanwhile such men as-Coolidge, Chas. O. Dnwes, John Barton Payne and Charles M. Schwab have quietly dropped oil the executive committee of the memorial association. At the recent Republican stato convention in Ohio a resolution w.i sintroduced to invite President ,vas Introduced to invite President on a specific date, out the resolution was hastily and effectively shunted off and 'buried, "nslead, the G. 0. P. state- committee named a committee to participate in llie dedication—whenever that might be. White House Siltnt ,., Several informal atlcrripts ,,.have been made to get Coolidge and Hoover to the scene; they met no encouragement. Republican leaders agree that Coolidge showed good political judgment In declining to dedicate the memorial during the presidential campaign-year of 1928, but some think he should have acted just before leaving ollice. The White House has had absolutely nothing to say about the ded t - ication, but friends of the administration point out that Hoover was too busy learning the business ol being president and trying to handle a hard special session of Con- KlItST KTHKK .Ol'ERATION On October 10, 13W, Ur. Willlaiii T. G. Morton, a dentist of Boston, alter experimenting upon himselt' administered ether lor the first- lime as an anestebllc In an operation at Ihe Massachusetts General Hospital at Uoston. A number of spectators who had gathered to witness the operation snowed skepticism at Morton's apparatus to put, the patient, a young man, to sleep. Morton proceeded to administer the ether. In a few minutes he looked up and said: "Your, ijatlcnt is ready." The audience incredulous', watched in silence ns tne incision was made through the skin. The payout neither struggled nor cried out. The operation was continued and a tumor removed, When tho operation was over. Dr. Warren, the surgeon, tmned Lo Ihe audience and declared, 'Gentlemen, thU is no humbug." Inhaling a vapor to produce insensibility to pain was a process so new at that time that the word anesthesia was nol in use in the language when Morton gave his demonstration. Soon after this operation, however, Oliver Wendell Holmes, noted writer and physician, was asked to suggest a nains. He replied with the word anesthetic, from the Greek, meaning "not feeling."
