NOVEMBER t», "Defend Democracy Moscow's nest of tyrants has deluded millions of Its subjects into believing that capitalism and free enterprise offer nothing to the masses—that only under communism is there security and happiness. Men of the Kremlin are determined their subjects shall never learn the truth, hence the Iron curtain. Millions of human beings, In dire need of all those things which make for decent and happy living, are being denied simple necessities to promote the selfish ambitions of a set of modern Ivan the Terrlblcs. It is communism, not democracy—to use a term disdainfully applied to the American system by the reds — that is decadent. Democracy Is the only living, thriving form today In the world of government. Democracy has the key to the future of mankind. Democracy offers the only opportunity for scientific and cultural development, without which civilization will perish and man return to the primitive. Under democracy there is social progress because there Is material progress. In other countries at this mo- -nent millions arc hoping, praying, for the freedom which is the S-.erltage of Americans, and the benefits which can come only v.-ith freedom. Americans should ever be proud t!:at this is a capitalistic nation. T!iey should become more active in defending it against commun- I:-m. because when democracy has brcn supplanted by a bureaucratic, communistic or welfare state there can be no freedom. Judicial Firmness Sentences of 25 to 50 years and 27 1-2 to 55 years were Imposed by Judge Samuel Joseph In Nsw Yirk City to two 16-year-old yi uths who pleaded guilty to a three-count indictment charging r.-pe. robbery and assault against a girl, 16, and her male escort. To make certain that at least the minimum terms will be served ar.d not be cut short by over- Jpnient parole boards, the judge 0 dered the sentences on each c-;unt to run consecutively. Per- he was impatient with the e-.tremes to which some advocates of modern methods of han- juvenile delinquency have g^ne. The FBI reports that the na- 1 ion's worst wave of BOX crimes : i under way. It puts part of tho l.lame on courts and parole boards. More pointed is the '•ommcnt of Professor Stearns of Tufis College, who insists that the United States is "too •osy" on sex offenders. Dr. Stearns insists the sex offender "is not a mental patient, but a dangerous criminal and should be treated as a criminal." A psychiatrist supports Dr. Stearns, saying that hospital records show that the" sex offender who kills usually has been a third or fourth offender in a minor crime, but has been paroled. He agrees that the place for the sex offender is in jail, that "he is a criminal, not a patient.'' In reverting to the policy of stern retribution, Judge Joseph may be setting a new judicial trend, and one that appears to have the approval of a growing body of scientific thought. Discontinued Coins Six coins have been discontinued by United States mints at various times. These are the trade dollar, half sent, two-cent piece, three-cent nickel, three-cent silver and 20-cent piece. These are exclusive of gold, not made into coins until 1933, and of the three to 00-cent denomination paper money of 1862-1878, The silver dollar has not been minted since 1935, because of lack of demand, but Its manufacture can be resumed at any time. A silver five-cent piece was issued prior to 1874, but was replaced by the five-cent nickel. Many collectors and others believe the 20-cent piece should have been retained and the quarter discontinued. The quarter did not fit in so well with America's decimal coinage system. The M- cent piece was first issued in 1875. It was almost as larg'j as the 25-cent piece ana the designs were similar.. As a result, there was confusion- among cashiers, merchants and others who frequently mistook one coin for the other. This is understandable when one recalls the confusion be- tween the zinc coated 1943 cent nnd the dime. Complaints growing out of the confusion resulted in discontinuance of the 20-cent piece in 1878. At that time all bronze coins were alike In design, silver coins were alike and gold coins a« well. Today, with a distinct design for each coin, there might be lees confusion. Recent discoveries dlHclowo tho earth is 500,000,000 years older than formerly believed. There goes its trade-In value.

Shot fo Death A RUECTID SUITOR shot blonde Muriel Beal (above), 25, to death before a crowd reading news bulletins In front of a Brockton, Mnss., newspaper building where she worked as a bookkeeper. The suitor, Robert S, Lundin 33, then wounded himself. He Is reported to be in a tritlcal condition, (International) H»imer YORK—It has been hours since I saw the girl, but she remains there In my mind and shows no signs of leaving. 1 had to come out of 53rd street, past the Museum of Modern Art,.and had started down Fifth avenue toward the middle of the city, when she came swinging up Fifth in the opposite direction. She was with another girl about whom I remember nothing- at all, but this one had a sweet and kind face. She' was the kind of girl you would call pretty, which is a mild sort of rarity, and if you thought you were any kind of judge of human nature you looked swiftly Into her eyes as slie passed and you £»ld to yourself, there Is honewty there, and trust, and the clearness of youth and Bluff like that there. You know, maybe, one or two people like that, but they are spaced pretty far apart and II alwayn is a pleasure to ace another one. So I slowed down a little as she passed and I beamed to myself and kind of thought, well what do you know, another nice person ln tnc W0 rlcl—and then I heard her speak. She turned to tho other girl as they came walking briskly along Firth and she just said something pedestrian about the weather or the new pair of shoes she'd just bought . . . and it came out, her voice, flat and hard ami with the ring of bitterness to It. It was the voice of someone who spat in the world's eye. I listened to It for two, three seconds and then she was gone, the •pike heels clicking along fainter and fainter and the crowd enveloping her before she had cone a block. They didn't go together, the voice and the face. It wasn't exactly new to me, because this Is something you see every day In this •trangcst of cities, but it always is upsetting, and the face slays With you as you try to blow the hard voice out of your thoughts What fa ft the city has clone to them' All right, you may say I am dramatizing, but I say to you that I know a gentle face with the sign of truth on it when I see one, and this was one The poison had not worked up to her face yet. but it was in her speech and as I listened for just a moment in the warm autumn sunlight, I knew it held her heart in a vise It has been hours since I saw the girl, but she remains there in my mind and, for a liltl« while, I look on my city with anger and sadness. * * » » IN THESE DAYS OF DRAWN LINES between the church am' the medical world on the subject of psychiatry, it is a little startling to come across the Marble Collegiate church's rcllgio-psychialric clinic. To me, news of the clinic is red-hot and fresh from the press, but actually it has been in existence for a dozen years, or ever since Dr. Norman Vincent Peule, one of New York's most widely-known clerics, established it at the church, Fifth avenue and 29th street ' It is staffed by three psychiatrists and three psychologists and they each give a day a week—at least—as a volunteer. It doesn't cost the "patients" anything, and Dr. Pcalc believes firmly that religion and the psycho-sciences can go hand in hand. Last year, the Marble church's clinic helped 261 persons, Including both members and non-members of the congregation. In a rundown of the thousands who have come to it for help since its organization, director Smiley Blanton says that the greatest number of clients—that would be about 26 per cent—are suffering from neurotic depression. Next in line, a group of 20 per cent are thos« who want to know how to save their marriages from brcakintr un" * * « » b 1 • ANOTHER ODDITY COMING TO OUR ATTENTION this week was the city's shortest bus line. It quite naturally Ls in Brooklyn and is known simply but with dignity as Route 42. Actually it is just a little more than a half-year old, having been set up when the Rockaway Parkway shuttle trolley was closed down It lasts just four-tenths of a mile, which breaks down to two blocks, and the most appealing foiiluro about it, all in all is that it doesn't cost anything. _ Mostly, the passengers are fishermen, heading for the happy hunting grounds at Canarsie Pier. The bus. run by gray-haired Charlie Broslau, takes two minutes to make its run.
