PIN BALL MACHINE HEARING MAY BE TEST CASE TRIAL CONTINUES ON DISPOSITION OF 2 MACHINES Stanley Comfort Maintains Officers Should Have Had Warrants. What may be regarded as a test case on whether officers can seize pin ball or slot machines seen in operation without search warrants was continuing on trial in the district court before Judge T. A. Beardmore Thursday. Stanley Comfort, representing H.-Z. Smith, owner of two pin ball machines on which condemnation proceedings had been brought by the county attorney's office, presented the defense Thursday, not in the form of testimony, but in arguments to the court. Comforl argued the property, taken from Park Inn hotel and the Mulligan and Sons tire shop and service station, 113 West Stale street, had been wrongfully seized tor the reason that officers taking possession o£ the machines did not have search warrants. County Attorney M. L. Mason, who with his assistant, M. C. Coughlon, launched the condemnation proceedings, presented testimony lo show that the policemen seized the machines after seeing them in operation. The county attorney argued lhat an officer seeing a person placing a gallon of alcohol in an automobile wouldn't n e e d a search warrant to search the car. He argued the local police would be in an analogous position in the matter of seizing (he pin ball machines. This was particularly true with reference to the machine seized at the Park Inn hotel by Leo Risacher, police captain. Judge Henry Graven, the twelfth judicial district's newest member on the bench, was ill with influenza in his room at the Ead- mar hotel Thursday.

FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Dally Lenten Devotional Prepared by Dr. \Villard L. Speery for the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. First Week--"Christianity As a Way." WINS CONTEST Two National Guard Units Stage Event at Local Armory. THE WAY UP Thursday, Feb. 11.--"They were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went before them." Head Mark 10:32-34. Sitting beside me in the room where I am writing, a college boy has been planning a bicycle lour of England. He had been poring over the road maps to see how he can avoid the hills. If he stays on' the level he will miss the best of England--Devon and Cornwall, the lake district, the down- 1 a n d and the m o o r s. W It y should we pity him or smile at DR. SPEURY h i m ? Do we not study the map of life in advance lo see how wo can avoid its hills? The French painter Tissot has illustrated the text. Jesus is seen striding resolutely over the brow of a Palestinian hillside; the disciples straggle wearily behind. A friend once said to me that no in- lerpretalion of Christianity could ever satisfy him which did not capture and communicate the energetic spirit which Tissot put into his figure of Jesus. A Christian might as well make his peace with the fact that he cannot travel on the level. Prayer: Teach us, O Lord, at all limes to lift up our eyes unto the hills from whench comelh our help, to set our eyes upon the end of our high calling, and with steady purpose to strive upward in our pilgrimage: through Jesus our Lord. Amen.
