Obvibnsly a person, who because of religious convictions or for any other reason regards it a isin .to attend a place of amusement on Sunday, ought to stay away. It ought not lo require a law to keep him away. And just as obviously it is no more wrong for another person, whose religious convictions establish no such bar, to visit a place of amusement on Sunday than on any oilier day. A decent regard for the rights of all people demands that we permit no activities on Sunday or on any other day in interference with religious observances or with the peace and <iuicl of tlve community. The presentation of moving pictures on Sunday involves no such interference, and because it, cloc.s not and because a very substantial number of our people welcome the opportunity of such diversion on Sunday we believe the city council acted with wisdom in declining to -place any obstacle in the way. Of course it remains against the law to operate a theatre on Sunday. But it would be highly inconsistent to condemn the theatre operator for such a violation as long as we not only permit, but 'seemingly welcorro, [similar violations by others.

Modern scientific medicine provides methods of treatment for tuberculosis, Including surgical removal of the ribs and collapse of the lung, and Including also the injection of air into the thorax so as to collapse the lung and rest it In this manner. These methods a»e obviously 'available only where there are competent men to perform the operations and to take care of the Injections.

The victory not only gave England a memorable naval victory . but prestige on the seas, which it has since maintained. The day before the battle the .allied fleet of 33 ships ventured to put to sea. but they were met by Nelson with'21 ships. The British admiral had previously watched their maneuvers and sensed their movements Immediately. Before tlw light started, Nelson gave his famous signal, "England expects that every man will dr> his duty." After a desperate fight, is of the ,?nemy ships wcte captured and .the rest dispersed. Nelson was mortally wounded and his last words were. "Thank God, I have done my duly."
