Parental Rights, Dittias That the "sncral rights of parenthood" ;irc at'compiiniecl by equally .s;t- cral duties is graphically illustrated by tile recoil litigation concerning custody of -FrwWie Bartholomew, child movie star, Freddie's parents sought to have sut aside the previous court order by .which his aunt. Miss Myllicent Bartholomew, had adopted him. Offhand, one inisjlit suppose that (heir plea was no more than right; after all, do not a boy's mother and ' father have first claim on his affections, and are they not the p.eo.plp who can best be trusted to look after his interests? But it developed that Freddie was : given into the care of his aunt when he was 3 years oid, and that he had remained with her since. He testified that his parents "are strangers to me." He had grown to give his aunt the trust and affection that a boy ordinarily gives to his mother. This being the case, it is hard to ((iiflrrel with the court decision that hjs (Hint's custody of him is to remain undisturbed. Whm lo Stop Driving Six years ago a Cleveland business man went to the stale penitentiary for automobile manslaughter, his auto having killed a young eydisl. The business man tied after the accident, but was caught by police, hi addition (p goinp to"prison, he paid out .?£!,000 in damages in civil ".suits, two other bqya having been injured in the same accident. He served 14 months and came out of prison, one would suppose, a sadder and' wiser man- Rut just the other day he was arrested again, charged with having driven away with his lights turned out after his car hit and critically injured a pedestrian. Wouldn't you think that such a man would give up driving for life? On the evidence, it seems fairly clear that he has precious little business behind a steering wheel.

A Dangerous '1 rend A Tribune reader, Mr. E. J. Mason, directs our nllcnlioii to reporls out of Little Rock tlinl the iljite penal board ha's recommended commutation of life term sentences given two prison:re convicted of criminal assault. 'Hie conunuliilioii.s recommended, according to'the .stories, would make Ih: prisoners immediately clli:il:!e (or piusle. It is clear from :•(•-• IKuls Unit two men, if the penal board's recommendation:; «re followed, will lie free aenlu wilhin » few months. Perhaps the state penal hoard has made a srarchhu; iim'Klieation of all the circumstances Mirroimdini: the crimes of which the two men 1 wire convicted. I'crhnps they luwc reached the ccnclmion that the' juries which convicted (hem were moved by prejudice ami emotional stress (3 sentence the men lo imprisonment for the remainder of their lives. Perhaps Ihe penal board did nil these cssen- li;.l things; but, on HIP basis of the undisputed lads iirrsc'itcd, it doesn't .seem likely. The clislllutiicnrd observer sees In the ricommen- dalior.s of the board ample reason for suspi- cicri that forces other (him these of justice, luKi'ty, and protection of the public vvellare were brcushl into play to obtain the suggestion for clemency.

In the whole picture ot crime and punishment lu Arkansas mid Hie nation, these two cnscs arc of small importance. Their real gravity lies in -the fact that the the action "of the Arkansas penal board in this case is a typical example of a dangerous trend back lov.'tml the Caspar Milquetoast altitud: in dealing with incorrigible criminals.
