Crooked Politics Organized Crime. Sonic of the most intereilinK rciul- ing matter of'the, ycur is likely to come out of tin; New York (jrand jury heariiiK at which U. S. IliHlrid Attorney Gcui'jie '/. Slcdalie recently Gliiljfjnilert his cliwKos that tliciv exists :>n intiuialc ullianre beiween New York politics and New York crime. A charue of this kind is not new, and—to people at all familiar.with the ways of iminh'iiwl politics, in Miui- luitlan or elsewhere—it is nol e-pec- • ially suvprisintf. Yet it is an ucnism- tion over which we have never, as a people, shown any capacity to become indignant. If a detailed list of names, places and dates can bo uivcn us, we might be able to get stirred up about it. T * * The inability of I ho average bin city government to suppress organized crime is one oi! 'the most shocking symptoms our society displays. Gang murders, racketeering, hidnap- ings, rum running, a conglomeration of lawless outbursts such us no other civili/ed 'land 1 tolerates—these tilings arc commonplaces in our municipal affairs. Yet we seldom have the sense to reflect. on their causes. When Mr. .Mcdiilic declare A lhal New York has these things because her gaiigslera are allied with her politicians, he states nothing more than ii perfectly obvious truth. It is true, not only in New York but in every other city where organized, crime is troublesome. A moment's reflection ought to ."how us that there caimnl possili'y l-e any other explanation. Inefficient our law enforcement agencies may be, hut they cannot be so stupidly incompetent as to remain ignorant of the activities of gangsters wiio'se names and deed.-; are known lo the very school children. * ' * Yet wb continue to miss the- point. We go to the polls, year afler year, and vote.for "Iho same old crowd of machine politician.;.' We accept the spoils system without protest. \\'c are complacent in the face of re|>calud revelations lhal most city irovcnimcnts grant favors to the rich and the puw- And we ciinnot understand wliy crime is so well entrenched.

Journal of thr S*U, the Health Habit spasms often appear in lilldren, both boys and girls, be- wecn six years of .age and ado- escence.

CBURCH EXCUSES By Gn. W. Barbara likely to hRVe worse movrmcnts when being watched by adults, whereas the child with hubit spasms Is likely to discontinue the movements. The child with lh!s bad habit Is HVely lo have also excitability and obstinacy, lo sleep badly nnd to suffer with headaches. Because of the imitative nature of children, such habit spasms sometimes develop almost like an epidemic in schools. As such conditions are largcl; mental, treatment must be to the menial side. It Is innx)rtant to ^rind out the difficulties in the home that arc nssccluted with the Irmiblc and to regulate these. All sources of distress, such ns fenr of punishment, J must be stopped. Such children do well with encouragement and pleasantness, it is not well lo find fault constantly v.ith Ihc child because thi-s keeps his attention fixed on his habit.
