German's Responsibility Anton J. Cermnk will tuke office as mayor of Chicago under a heavy weight of responsibility, not only to the city hj mil serve qml to his own local and state organizations, but to the Democratic party of the entire nation. Democratic victories in the largd cilios of the country arc not unusual; New York and Boston have Democratic administrations more often than not, and Chicago hag had them occasionally. These 'local successes, however, have not always been unmixed blessings to the! party. Democratic votes in metropolitan municipal contests have often turned into Republican votes in national campaigns, and the none-too- •Bavory records of some Democratic city administrations have probably made a good many. Republican votes out in the country. Al Smith's association with Tammany Hall not only failed to carry New York state for tliu "party in 1928, but undoubtedly cost the _ party a number} of other states. — In Chicago, where the 'Republican !'machine has usually been dominant, '.and. thus has attracted most of those ' elements seeking graft or protection , through activity in city polilic-s, the ' Democratic organization has n relatively clean record, and.has won the ; support of large numbers of normally I Republican voters'to .whom Thompson .'rule was. anathema. Mr. Cermak has • the opportunity of justifying the confi- ., dericc placed ifi him by his fellow citi- t zens x>f •bottKflwtMis, and"of affdrding .his own stale and the country at large an _examplo of honest and efficient ' Democratic administration. To do this ' he must resist the advances of the spoilsmen and corruptionists of his own city who, being essentially non-partisan, . will be quick to desert the defeated Republican machine and seek places on the victorious Democratic band wagon. wives," lie says, "really should be considered sufficient grounds for divorce. Many American women have rasping, nasal voices that would wear down any man's nerves., Lei women realize there is as much sex appeal in the timbre of a lovely voice us there is in a beautiful face or form." Of course metropolitan lift; in the United States abounds in disturbing sounds, There is the clangor of traffic, the screech of riveting machines. At home there is the neighbor's radio or a temperamental display of static by your own. There is the perpetually ringing telephone, But to charge breaches in the domestic harmoncy entirely to the account of American wives seems a harsh indictment. Husbands do occasionally talk hack and not always? in dulcet tones. There is little likelihood that the French doctor's remarks will have any appreciable influence upon the divorce rate. But what about the women's clubs, sewing circlo.s and bridge groups when they hear that their voices arc "raspinff, nasal and lacking in sex appeal"? Instead of helping to solve the nation's noise problem it looks as though Dr. Morche may have done a good deal to augment it. JLYTHEVILLE. (AKK.) COURIER NEWS. I SIDE GLANCESBy George Clark OUT OUR WAY What Do the Ladies Say A shrill and raucous voice on the part of a wife should be grounds for a divorce according to Dr. Robert Jlorche, French government expert on 'deafness, who is visiting the United States to study noise conditions. : "Constant high pitched speech by Looking at Both Sides of "Stabilization "Mad clear through" former Chiilrman Let-Be of the Farm Board rUes to remark that he dM not desert a slh'klnu ship whcii he resigned Ills post.
