Back t° the, Indians l'>.-r a good ninny yi'itr.s the yag rfbont giving the (country buck to the ImHitns has heen a good joke—except that it liad a .certain grim overtone, in the depression, which made it a tiiflo shivery. Now, however, it develops that In- <listii Commissioner John Collier is in favor of exactly .such n program. He points out that much siibmarginal land in the west is to be retired from agriculture. "Why, he asks, should such laud not be given to the Indians? They are (experts at using land in .such a way as to-conserve forest and grass. Any reforestation or erosion-control plan would lit their way of living. Land that cannot support American Liniiers properly-would be ideally designed for Indian use. The idea sound* attraclivi'. r l'ln> Indian would jjain, for in (lie end he would be-able to support himself and work out his own salvation; mean- whflc, the while man's land-control piogram would be helped. Why not, on a modest scale, give a little of the country back to the red men ? Insanity Should Be Redefined One of the tragic things about thu dreadful kidnaping and murder of 10- year-old Grace Budil, in New York, is the fact that her slayer, Albert Fish, OUT OUR WAY actually fell into the hands of the police several times after the crime had been" commuted—and was discharged each Ijnic, Fish suffered from n warped emotional mitkeup vv'hi'ch drove him to this atrocious crime, This defect was evident to the authorities when he was arrested; yet because he was "able lo distinguish right from wrong," ho was not legally insane and (hey hnd to turn him loose'—although his confession in the Budd case clearly stamps him as a monster \ylio should not be ftl liberty for a single day. The lesson of this would seem to be that our legal definition of insanity is badly out of date. Horrible crimes of this kind are committed by men who know what is wrong as well as anyone does, but who are driven by an emotional urge they cannot or will not master. . Obviously, we need a new and more sensible legal definition of mental unbalance. (ARK.) COUiUKR NEWS Behind Croo^s---Croof^d Lawyers The indictment of two lawyers who defended the Urschel kidnapers on the charge that (hey participated in the division of the Urschel ransom money, is hailed as a lirst .step in the federal government's new campaign against unscrupulous criminal attorneys; and it is to be hoped that flic campaign is prosecuted with vigor and intelligence. Kvery man accused of crime has, of course, the right to hire counsel, lint what are we ,tb say of lawyers who lend their advice, month after month, to men they know to be crooked, and accept fees which they know come from illegal enterprises? Where is the dividing line between the services a 'fnvyer .may legally rentier a client, and tho kind of work which iii effect makes the lawyer a member of the gang? In too many cases that line is altogether lost sight of. The government's campaign should lie a salutary reform.
