Sacrifice of Politics to Lasting Honors Probably the most significant single thins about Mayor l.aGuardia's inaugural in New York was his blunt |)veWiction: "I never shall be re-elected." That brief lemark, taken in conjunction with the new mayor's policies, contains a whole volume of commentary on municipal politic.-; as it is practiced in America. The reasons for the new mayor's pessimistic prediction are simple. He aims to give New York a clean and efficient administration He is going to reduce Ihe niimlwr of city employes by approximately 10,000. He is going to cut salaries, abolish useless boards and commis.Mcns, consolidate cily departments, end the reign of graft in the letting of contracts and the buying of supplies, remove politics ''frpm'thc police department. v ?' He K going, in short, to-do those ! simple things which obviously and indisputably arc proper for n mayor to ' do. i .' ..,, . _.. _, ..'•-••—'•"••* •*' • •' • - ' But we have btiill up the kind of system in our municipal politics which makes it very unlikely that any administration can do those very proper and necessary things and win re-election. To succeed in American municipal politics, as' a general tiling, a mayor must consent to a certain amount of inefficiency, a certain amount, of favoritism, and a certain amount of outright corruption in his government. The extent to which ho nuts up with those things varies from city to city, naturally; but the man w!i<\ like La- Guardia, boldly proposes lo abolish them entirely is a great rarity, and be takes it for granted at the slarl that he cannot be re-elected. We have hut! a Ki'^l ticiti of Uilk in tlie last year iiljonl a "new deal," sihotil a new spirit that is cnlerin^ our conduct of national affairs. Nowhere do we need ;i public opinion thi'l will sup- in ouv system ot local government. We need not only politician. 1 ;, wiio are courageous enough to put principlt! above the SUCCCSB of their OUT. careers; we nee da public opinion that will .support such men when they do appear, and give them the backing ihey must have. The piping times in which money was so plentiful that wo could afford lo support wasteful and grafting city governments have gone, now, and there is not much chance that they will return soon. It is up to us to cut our clolh to suit our pursi; to html for and support politicians willing to lake office with the prediction, "1 never shall be reelected." —Bruce Cation. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark To Check Blackmailing Senator Millnnl Tyiliiitfs of Maryland plans to seek a mocliltailion of iliu famous Mann acl in llio ii'.'oscnt .sus- sion of Congress. This law was passed to strike a folnw at the white slave tnill'ic. Unfortunately, it also lias lieen a lioon to blackmailers. It is perfectly possible to prosecute under it a man who never has dreamed of having Ihe shadow of a connect ion "with llw: organized vice trall'ic; and unscrupulous folk have used this fact as a lover to extort money from men guilty of nothing more than indiscretions. It goes without sii.vint', of course, that iu revising the law c;ire must be taken to leave it a n cIVeclive club against commercialized vice rings. Senator Tydings believes it is possible to amend the law so as to destroy its usefulness for blackmailers without weakening its usefulness in Din Meld for which it was designed. It is to be hoped that lin succeeds in Ins plan. m siissj fW life! itpr %i til nVs^yuFa'jti y:c_ ff_u o y */r r fv. _ "Well, what are YOU starim CHURCH EXCUSE Jiiil a short time aya our minds were centered around the o:ie word, "BifU."

Death for Reckless Driving Sonic Niirl of nitonl fur severity in dealing with rctkless driving seems to have been 'sut by the Russian court -in Moscow, which recently imposed the death penally on n nintorict who let his car i;et nut of control, caromed into a nini'cliini; column of troops, and caused the dentil of four men. This .sentence is ;tll the more astoiind- injf when one considers (he f;ict thai, except in cases of counti'i'-reviilulioniiry activity, lUtssiait courts arc reluctant tu impose the death penally at all, even for cold-blooded murder. It isn't likely that very many Americans would favor the adoption of such stringent measures ii! tins country. Nevertheless, there is something to be said for the adoption uf extreme severity toward the man \v!io handles bis car so poorly thai he destroys the lives of his fellow men. We have a lot of public nieitiiccs of that variety in America, antl .so far we do not seem to hive Sound any very effective way of dealing with then). Yugoslavia Finds New Inspiration in Rabbits liEI-GRADE tUPi—A buck rabbit by the name of "Magnus" has proved the inspiration of n new Industry for Yugoslavia. Two years ago his owner.
