That LiJt~Saving Comma Nearly four years ago, Uirci; oll'dals Of it tlcfuncl mortgage company in Cleveland were convicted of fraud charges in connection with tlicir company's sale of partial payment gold trust bonds. The conviction didn't end lli<; nuttier. It went to tlie state supreme court, which ordered a new trial on Hie , (ji'otiml that the judge erred in his charge to Hie jury. The other day the retrial 1'mnlly began. . Then the defense attorneys nrgueil .Dial the indictment in'the case was faulty—because of'a misplaced comma. They artjuetl H(]. wdl that the trial •.judge was obliged to agree with Ihem and. -ilia men were freed. -Addrcssiut' (he jury, the judge re- 'inarked that "this should illustrate tile fallacy ut' making a' criminal caso a t'liniu instead of a method of iiiTiving at justice." That's putting it mildly. Here we hayd: n crimiiml case that had dragged out for four years—and it "is finally disposed of because Home, lypjs.l, p.ut a comma in the wrong place!"

COUHLEK NEWS Leveling War and Peace. • Tlie iMcSwaiji bill to elitiihiafe war profits will probably cpme to a vole during this session of Congress. It would authorize the president to freeze prices at levels as of a dale prior to the;declaration oi' war, mid in that way—according to its .sponsors—would prevent profiteering. : Congressman Frank 1>. Kloeb of Ohio poinled out. the other day that such measure would also make the transition from war to peace less of a strain o;i the country' seeonomie fabric. The close of u war, he remarks, lias always heretofore brought a period of falling prices, with a resultant depression. Under the JMcSsvain bill, he argues, "the nation will move from peace to war and from war to peace without serious disjointmcnt of the economic structure." Anything that, would cut the traditional post-war crashes would certainly be a step in the right direction. Dcmpscj- is my. pal, but I cwiW iiitvc licked him. —J,tax Bacr. OUT OUR WAY Gangster's Strange Deathl Chicago's gangsters luivc ilone n jrreiit rntiny sii|-pi1sing things in Urn last (lec'itdc; but none of them ever did anything 1 very much more surprising than did Frankie Rio, former body- (ftiiivd to Al Capuiic, who confounded (ho 'expectations of everybody the other day by 'dying jienccl'iilly in bed from nnluntl cmises. Tlie removal from tile current .scents of any uaiufslor is yood news, of course, and ordinary heart disease may be a civic instrument just as is the electric chair, Hut it is worth noticing that Rio \wis one of lite very few Clii- fiico hoodlums lo depart from this life without co-operation of a machine t'tin or a revolver. Things must bu gelling strangely peaceful in Chicago, when a Caponu gangster can die in bed like any ordinary citizen!

Pricts Keep Going Up Whatever may be happening to the recovery program as a whole, the cost of living seems to be making an extremely KUcce.ssfid come back. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace himself predicts that meat prices will be up 32, per. cent by 1 !);>(>. Beef mid pork will be up 22 per cent by July 1, Porterhouse- steak and bacon are apt to be classed as "company dishes" before. the year is over. All of whieli lends some poinl lo the complaint of tlie I'euple's Lobby I hat the consumer is getting a pretty poor sort of protection in the campaign to put the farmer in better shape. There may be exaggeration in Uie lobby's assertion that the recent "purge", in AAA means that "exploiting and profiteering interesls have got control of that agency," but it is pretty obvious that the consumer is carrying more than his share of the load.
