ItOJO per JMT jetahlr IB vlTenec Cou rt-Sa net i oned Whippings A circuit judge in' Fort Smith has been asked by a Little Rock father lo order his son whipped in public in lieu of serving a. sentence imposed following conviction on a criminal charge. The idea for this reversion to barbaric method stems from an incident in Little Rock last week when Circuit Judge Autcn sanctioned the applying of the lash in the cases of three defendants guilty of felonies and under the law subject to imprisonment for their wrong-doing. . ; '• •,' The laws of the .state, prescribe the punishment for violations and: .to substitute any other form .of punishment is usurping of legislative 'power by the judiciary — one of the , practiced 'which brought criticism in recent years of one of the nation's highest .executives. The whipping idea jh Littl6 Rock- was suggested by the cUIprits themselves. It is patent that it -was less severe as a form of punt&hmciit than a prisqn term would have been. Since when have crimina|s gained such standing it: court that they can proscribe their form of punishment? A judge who even -,so much as listens to such picas for clemency is - cheapening his court and weakening the courts of the land— ^li'nd weakening them at a time when 'every precaution ( should be taken to rotkih for the courts the respect which is so vital 'to the life of a democracy wherein the legislators FRIDAY, JUNK 7, 19-10 make (he laws, the proper officials execute the duties set up by the lawmakers, and the courts JUH! their altacln-s see to it that (he laws are enforced to the letter. No executive should possess the right to make laws, or directives which take the place of'law. NO semblance of justice would permit the lawmaker to trp those who sirn accused of violating his laws, and no judge should write, or uudcrialce to write laws to fit his whims. It is such stuff that leads to dictatorships.

She doesn't pull the wool over my eyes. I can see through her. 'Oh yes, Doctor! 1 'Certainly, Miss Sunderlin! 1 'I'm only too happy lo help where 1 can.' La- dc-da—blah-blah-blah. Phoocy!"
