Emeu oy the umiea Vreit and if we did know \ve should probably act too late.

Useful Human Energy Is Wasted in Crime This modern world abhors waste. When it finds any source of energy going tinuscd—Ji waterfall, a factory, a coal mine, or whatnot—it exerts every effort to put that energy to work. But there is one kind of energy which is wasted every day, sometimes in the most extravagant and tragic manner, about which we seldom bother to think twice. That is human energy—the energy, (o Oe cxacl, of bad men mid bud women, the outlaws, the people who rebel violently against any and all restraints. Think, for instance, of Clyde Harrow and Bonnie 1'arker, those precious Tcxans who* were finally sliol to death in Louisiana after compiling a criminal record about as vicious as any in western history. » • » Within the liist two years no fewer than 12 murders were definitely ascribed to these two. ^ .Nine of their victims were policemen. Hank robberies, highway holdups, filling station stickups, kidnapings—the crimes of this nature on their record are almost beyond counting. They roved from Texas to Iowa, irresponsible and dangerous, cutting :i swath that made Dillinger look like ti lad on his way home from Sunday school. _ ••'[ : - ' /Finally', of course, the law caught up with them. Deputy sheriffs ambushed them along a lonely country road and ' filled them full of lead, ending forever that particular chapter in criminal history. • • * But one is forced to wonder, thinking about this pair—what was it that set them off on the wrong path, anyway? How could society have prevented that costly waste of potentially useful energy? For it was n waste—make no doubt of that. Two youngsters who can do all these did have abounding energy, ono|rau>if# vitality). 'l\hc force that makes a man a dangerous outlaw is, at bottom, the same kind of force that enables a man to do the great, hard, and useful jobs that keep the world turning; it just gets directed down the wrong channel. How could society have prevented it? Not Ijeing very wise, we don't know, Sidelight on Business Thy assertion of a federal trade commission investigator that Henry I-. Doherty obtained control of the billion- dollar Cities Service Co. with an investment of only ? 1,000,000 brings into light one of the strangest iiuirk.s of modern society—the divorce that can exist between ownership and management. Control of a great property, that is to say, can rest in the hands of a man who actually owns only a very small fraction of the properly. On the other hand, thousands of people can l>e owners without ever having anything conseiiuential to say about what shall be done with their pro|x:rly. This, of course, is not to say that any criticism attaches to men who buy control of a corporation without buying majority ownership. It simply illustrates the strange eour.-e that corporate development has tiikeii in modern times. Up to the Women The girls and women nf Hillings, Mont., havu won a victory over the censors. The city park hoard originally announced that "shorts, scanfies, and abbreviated attire" in general would not be allowed on city tennis courts; then, when the women protested, tho board said that shorts could be worn, but that they must reach at least to the knee and must not be too snug. SHU UK: women prote.slM. So, finally, tlie hoard .surrendered, ruling thai women could wear in public, "any costume based on common sense and decency." And this seems like a very sensible ruling, which other park commissioners might well copy. These elaborate rules (hat anxious people set up for women's costumes, on bathing beaches or in parks, are invariably i|iiite absurd. The. "common sense and decency" regulation is all any such regulations need to contain. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Stti/W!
