Because courts admit all relevant evidence which relates to the issue of a case on trial and do this without the need of legislation, a law legalizing the scientific tesls would not be necessary to warrant the admission in evidence of the tests, he reasons. "Legislation might, however," he adds in = letter to the director of this page, "help in a ver Foreign Affairs By Mark Byers No Shift Made in Position of Church QVERSHADOWING all else in the international ^s picture is the welcome election of Cardinal Pacelh, papal secretary of state under Pius XI as pope. His choice on the third ballot of the college of cardinals is evidence that in this period of crisis and tension in international affairs there will be no shift of the church's position. And that the new pope meant that meaning not to be overlooked was indicated by his first act following his election--the i choice of the name Pius XII. It ' was undoubtedly chosen by ihe new pontiff to make plain the fact that there is to be no interruption and no change of direction in Vatican policy from that of his predecessor. 'That would naturally have been expected, of course, since the cardinal secretary of state is the chief diplomatic officer of the Vatican, and as such Cardinal Pacelli undoubtedly had RVE-RC mu , ch to do with formulating BlfciCS and carrying out 'ilie policies o£ his predecessor. They have been in a sense his policies. But choosing the same name as that o£ Itie late pope gives emphasis and assurance of continuation. Thus the new inmate of the Vatican has an- no_unced his hostility to naziism and fascism to racial hate and persecution, for these were the basis of the policy of Pope Pius XI in his nu- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DAILY SCRAP BOOK MONDAY, MARCH 6, 1939 By Scott EYE / the election is not popular either in Italy or m Germany. The Italian discontent with the result is ihe more restrained. In Germany the oificial displeasure is openly stated. Apparentlv Germany had hoped to bring influence upon the cardmalate which would result in the choice of a pope who would be less outspoken, if not favorable to totalitarian ideas. England and France are naturally jubilant seeing in the prospective policies of the new regime assistance against fascist control of Spain --a country strongly influenced by church policy --and general resistance to the Home-Berlin axis ideas and aggression. And if Pius XII stands" lirmly upon the German concordat, which Hitler is already accused of having violated in some real way to cause the courts to see this need and morous courageous protests and objections to "he to have legislative authority codifying what would TM n£t of affairs in Europe during his later years be the common law authority without the legis- Watllra1tv th » oia/.*:TM, ,-~ --4 1._ _,,. lation. Many of the rules of evidence set out in the code are but codification of what ihe law would be without the legislation. A statute on the subject would settle the matter with a doubtful or fearful judge." Recently the Globe-Gazette commented at some length about a survey of the scientific tests done by Professor Ladd and a fellow educator Professor Gibson, bio-chemist at the University of Iowa. The correspondence here quoted grew out of our observations in that editorial. Professor Ladd calls attention interestingly to the fact that the blood test protects the innocent along with providing evidence " the guilty. Reference is t which would cause a defenda: pearance of drunkenness," including an alcohol breath. ^ "From all objective tests," says Professor Ladd, such a defendant would be found guilty, and a jury might regard his testimony that he had not been drinking as false. The' blood test would be his greatest protection against a wrongful conviction." Another point commented on by the law authority is that "drunk driving cases have been i ° ur o£ the United States for consultation with and are going to continue to be tried in our Ame "can cardinals and prelates. And he was courts." The question then arises, "What evi- E ap n « n f° m Germany, the first diplomat to ""^^^^^^.TF k II ^"T^FteSs *£ ££ ground to express his opinion that the man w^ JntimlS'» «-fi?H^°"?

We also let doctors irom objective manifestations express their opinion on the subject "All of these methods of proof from laymen oUicers and doctors come in and properly so with- out.objection by the courts. They would continue to be admissible even with the blood test. The blood test would not eliminate other relevant evU dence but would supplement it with the aid of science.

"Mrs. Grumble forgets that it. was only last week that she had asked to have her bridge party kept out of the paper because there were two or three other people whom she should have invited; and that the family didn't want it mentioned when they bought a new automobile because they still owed the local doctor for Junior, and two or three grocers had been waiting for them to settle up for some time. "The editor left the account of the daughter's careless driving spree out of the paner because he was sorry for the old man, and he also neglected to mention the fact that Mrs. Grumble's father died in the penitentiary and that it was rumored around that Mr. Grumble had been fishing without a license. "But still Mrs. Grumble thinks the editor could print more news. He probably could--but what if lie should?" --o-Bar on Mongoose , wonder if congress some ; day will have to repeal the law prohibiting the bringing of mongooses into this country? Quite often one sees complaints of rats becoming so plentiful that stringent measures are necessary to control them. Many of the tropical islands imported the fierce little mongoose to war upon rodents. The objection to the killer is that he multiplies rapidly and isn't particular what his game is, attacking domestic fowl and small animals as well as pests. Despite this lact the mongoose is a common household pet in India where he constitutes a watchdog against the deadly cobra and other snakes their bite by his extreme agility 8 And, in common fairness and candor, I think I should admit I had to go to the dictionaiy to find out how to spell the plural of mongoose." Real Jesse James admired the acting, the color effects and just about . everything else about the movie version of "Jesse James." One particular, however, I did not admire. I have reference to the treatments of the story which tended to make a hero out of a thief According to the best information available about him, he had no more to commend him in his day than Dillinger had at a later date .there may have been an instance or two--maybe several in which James stole from the rich w)!LP£ e t lo «! Iie poor ' a la Robin Hood. But these, represented his whims, nor ms true character Usually--as has been the case with his successors down through the years, he sought only those battles in which he would have an unfair advantage over those with whom he fought. In this he was no different from Dillinger and all the rest of his kind By playing him up as a hero and a martyr, Hollywood was guilty of a distinctly unsocial course. I here was no more reason in historical truth for heroizing Jesse James than there would be to heroize John Dillinger and his various "gun molls."
