Chicago's Unique Legal Rattle Chicago continues lo be Ihe setting for unique legal buttles. Last summer there were the widely discussed suits and connUr-suits over two babies whose parents, believed hospital authorities had erred, giving Baby A lo Family B ami vice versa. Now a new controversy wages, buttressed by-lengthy srmilitie testimony, to prove that four-year-old Jlaxine Hall, who has blue eye-, is or is not the (laughter of Edward Entringer, • South ', Dakota farmer. Entringer's eyes ars brown. Maxine's blue-eyed mother maintains the child was born before marriage to Entringer from whom she is now separated. Mrs. Entringer has testified that her first husband had blue eyes. The court is faced with deciding whether paternity may be proven by the color of the eyes. . Another case pending decision in Chicago is that of George Adair Longley, claiming the estate of George \V. Longley, wealthy manufacturer. The fact that Ihc young man's eyes are brown and the manufacturer's were blue was stressed in court proceedings. The rest of the country watches de- vclopnnnts in these legal-scientific controversies with mingled curiosity and amusement. Let Chicago go ahead. Apparently no problem is too great for lawyers and scientists of the second metropolis.

Hi is quite a different type, of films: tlum that rellectcd when George licrnanl Shaw declared him thq one individual alive who is assured of a pluce among immortals. Einstein's name has Income synonymous with relativity—that revolutionary scientific theory which it has been snid only 12 men in llic world itre learned enough lo inulcrstniul. After tlia professor lias returned lo Germany, after the tumult and shouting lins died away, will he retire lo a quiet study mid there with thai dynamic brain ponder a .new problem in relativity? Will he seek to discover the relativity between senseless demonstrations by celebrity-crazed crowds and the essential soundness and sanity 1 of the world's most prosperous nation? Being Einstein lis should be able lo make this discovorv. 'clflc cases, there has been such tre- ; mentions mixture of human beings I In breeding that It !s practically impossible to find human bjings • with eyes of absolutely pure color. In other words, eyes may be blu? to ordinary appearances, but. pure blue eyes arc so rare as to be almost absent. Hence, it, Is not possible to say because the eyes of both parents arc blue that the child will Imve blue eyes, the reason b2- ing that the parents have probably not pure blue eyes, and, according to the Mendelian law, It would require pure blue eyes to produce in every Instance a blue-eyed child. If somewhere in the ancestry, a pure blue-eyed person man-led a brown-eyed person, and four children resulted Irom the marriage, one would be blue-eyed, one brown- eyed, and two might te blue-eyed with traces of brown. Thus, brown- eyed parents produce brown-eyed children but also blue-eyed children. Short people have tall children and tall people have short children. But a famfiy In which most of the members have been tall for lonj periods of time will produce far more tall children than short ones. The operations of heredity therefore result on the whole In a certain degree of likeness or correlation between the characteristics ol the parents and the children but the results arc averages which have to be applied on a larg 1 : scale and which have to be Interpreted with intelligence.

WEDNESDAY, J\1AKCJI 18,_l93l| NATURE'S CURIO SMOR Our National Anthem One of Ihc last acts of Ihs 71sl Congress was to make Hie Slur-Spangled Banner our official. anthem. Perhaps it was Ihe tune congressmen wished Ihe nalion to remember Hi em by. At any rate, their action in thus creating ;i national nnlhcin by law invites objections. In the hearings on the bill made before Die House judiciary committee', Iwo sopranos were specially brought in to show Ihc cominitlec lhat lhe anthem could be sung. The conclusion of the committee apparently was that it' l\vo sopranos could sing it, everybody can.

CALROUN'S 1SIRTH On March 18, 1782, John C. Cal- noun. distinguished American statesman, was born in Abbeville District, South Carolina. Entering yale college in 180' Cailioun was graduated two years later with high honors. He resumed the study of law, which he t?- ean at the ngc of 18, and was admitted to the bar in 1807.
