P. Scott, editor of the Manchester Guardian, berause during 57 years he showed the heights to which Journalism based on idealism and humanltnrlanlsm can attain. Mr. Scott was 85 years old. He took the Guardian, then a little provincial newspaper and made It into a great editorial medium whose voice reached daily around the world. From Scott and his paper the saying grew up: "What Manchester does today, England will think tomorrow." He was never a popular figure like Lord Northchlffe was, nor like Lord Beaverbrook is today. A Journalist, politlran and classical scholar, a stern but quiet fighter, he still remained a simple man, the embodiment of faith in mankind. At root he was a Puritan, with his whole being consecrated to public service, and then to Journalism, IIF.ItO MEDAL I OK BOY HOOSICK FALLS, N. Y.

SELFISH INTERESTS BACKING MOVE FOR REPEAL, DRYS CLAIM Christian Temperance Organization Leader Explains Opposition to Plan. WASHINGTON UP) The Woman's Christian Temperance Union explained its opposition to resubmission of tho Eighteenth amendment today by contending it is no move for political Justice but "an attempt by the same old selfish interests to restore the liquor traffic." "The drive for resubmission," said Ella A. Boole, president of the union in a letter to members of congress "will be accompanied by that type of wet propaganda which has already advocated violation of the law and parades dlsobendience as a virtue. It is a vastly different thing to submit to the people a constrictive measure for bettering conditions, than to submit a subversive idea fraught with selective anarchy." Another vote on prohibi tion, the letter said, would not take the Issue out of politics, but would assure it a place there for many years. Better enforcement, larger observance, were called for.

Baldwin Works on New Year's; Finds 20 Jobs With the possibility that there might be work for some unemployed man Supt. Robert W. M. Baldwin of the Green Eay Free Employment bureau discovered that "New Year's Day" could be and was Just another Friday. The arrival of snow might mean the arrival of opportunities, the superintendent reasoned and he went down to work as usual. Soon th? telephone was ringing. Persons had to have men to shovel their snow. The employment bureau, engaged in public service, was expected to treat holidays Just as policemen and firemen, telephone folks, railroads and other public service employees do. By noon about twenty men had been engaged, located and put to work on snow shovelling Jobs. None of the Jobs lasted long or brought much In wages. Saturday an additional few were sent out. . The snow storm provided work for the men-ln-tns-blocks, for very many city men and city charges and for thess few additional mtn. The first page In the 1932 employment record for Green Bay showed 759 registered unemployed. This Is an Increase due to the return to the lists of men who had been put on special "week before Christmas" Jobs and at the post-office and the result.1; of the sustained publicity unemploy. ment relief has obtained. There are still more than 200 cards sent out in the recent survey-by-mail conducted by the bureau, which have not been reported on. These men now will not be registered for 1932. They may restore their registration at any time but the bureau Is not carrying cards on men who have not been heard from, do not answer mall, and whose whereabouts are not even known for certain. The city's Relief commission is scheduled to meet some day next week and next week also will see the revived activity of the American legion In its "Man-to-a-B'.ock" campaign. The veterans hope by another Intensive solicitation of homes in th" city to create enough hours of work weekly to put another considerable number of men on these Jobs. hickoryIaa'n'sTeg broken by stone boat (Soeoisl to Press-Gazette) HICKORY Peter Hanson had his leg broken In two places below the knee, when the stone boat, which he was using on road work, overturned on him.

"Therein lies one of the reasons why Canada has experienced less dislocation than some others and is in a better pos.tlon to register a rapid return to normal," he said.

Thursday morning the Arcade Smokery, managed by Ferdinand Cls-ar, was burglarized and about $100 in merchandise conrlstlng mostly of cigars nnd cigarettes was tiken. Because there was no evidence of any door or window b"lng forced, It is believed the burglars must have hidden in the pool hall before it was locked up for tho night Wednesday. They left by unlocking the rear door. Farcing a staple on the front door of the Srurlcr nnd O'Nell tinshnp, Huron-ave. early Wednesday morning, burglars took away a $25 check end nothing else. Tools in the shop were undisturbed. Early Thursday morning a lone bur glar had entered the Breakstone department store and was attempting to make his get-away with two suit-cmcs of stolen merchandise throug'l an opening in the rear window. Finding the hole too small he proceeded to enlarge It by breaking out mors glass. The tinkle of the falling glass was heard by special policeman Joseph Kampo, but the burglar escaped, leaving the loot behind. The Alphonsc Eclleau home, 1001 McDonald-st was burglarized durlnT the past week, whila no one was at home.
