THE PAKOI/B SYSTEM. Some people havo criticised tl"» parclc system rathor severely. Whon a dotendant in court is convicted of som oflowsc, and he Is admitted to parolo, persona aro apt U regard such a dispositioa of the- ease as amounting almost to an aciuitnal. It seems difficult for them to reconcile what seems to bo at moat ,\ very light pott- a l t j with an adequate 'iorm of Tun- lahiaent, for the offf^nso for Which a verdict of guilty ba-s been roudered. These impressions avo mainly tbe reffitlt of luck of information as to the operation of the parole systam. It is not. as may appear, granting rni- rcstralnwl liborty to convicted pcr- soi!3. It is placing them under t;ie care- of the probation officer, to \vhom t h e y must report nc.o each month u n t i l all the conditions of their parole havo been tullv discliargcd. Violation of a parole immediately makes tho c u - p r l t subject to action by the court. A. isenteuce oc impr sonment may follow that will deprive tho offender ot all the privileges hi was permitted to exercise tinder his parole. The chief advantage of tho oystem to tho county iri t a a t no expense Is I n c u r r e d in tho roaintonance in the c o u n t y jail or other ponal institution f l r r i n i r tho oxiatenro of the parole. The persons u n l e r parolo are free to w c u r e etniloyit.cnt and t h u s sustain UemsclvoH and fatxilies. Probation Officer T. Watt Hencler- Mf.n esilmutL-a tliat the saving to the county d u r i u s 1H2!', on an average of ·li.O persons on parolo during the year, was approximately $100,000, is'hioh t h e county woulc have had to pay in ovejit that all th-C'se persons had boon c iinmittod to jail or the work house. It there were pssurances that tho parolo system is effective as a cor- r f c t i v e , or as a preventive of crime, tic-re might ln more #meral acceptance of tiio mcilnd. Somo persons violate their pare-to and escape the jurisdiction of t.u-.i court leavln?; unpaid fines and costs, resulting in a ioss to the countj. But incarceration in jail or workhouse in no greater as litirahco that tho «vil tendencies ot tho Inmates avo corrected by this iorm of puni.shn-cnt. Often tho reverse IH the case, especially with rouugeT persons, whoso aasociatlon with criminals i i jails starts them more definitely on careers of crime. 1C tho probation ofllc«r Is held strictly accountable to the court for his wards, and ho is diligent In chock- Ins up on them, so that violations may be promptlr noted and reported to court, ovon inoro satisfactory re- Kwltii would seem possible of attainment. Fewer revocations would very likely bo necessary when those on paroJo realize tlio certainty and swiftness ot being cf.lled Into court when they failed to comply with all the requirements imposed upon them wfren they wore granted restricted liberty STUDENT TItAFFIC OFFICEKS. The experiment oC having students of the high «c2i'Kls act as traffic officers has advanc-xl so far that 11 young men of tho Immaculate Conception Parochial Higli Scbool iiavo already placed themselves undor the instruction ot Chief M: Police Wail. A lew days' training will equip them to assume the duties of the office for which they havo'been selected. Knowledge of tho trafic ordinance and rules of tho highway will bo acquired as essential to projwr safeguarding th«. school children at the street Intersections near the High School building. Tho t»porierce will be valuable to t-hoso young mon. Tho alortnews required to koop a cloe watch on the school children, and to aeo tha,t the streets aro clear before they attempt to cross, will c^ill lor considerable oelE control on par, of tho »tud«nt oflJcers. They w i l l Itnd they liavo more to do t h a n sraply i^t-ind at the street intersections and give signals to the drtv-- «rs of autoiiK^bllo:), Th«y will find, during tho biuy hours preceding the opening and tallowing the clo*e of Mfhool, that regulating the movoments (· r rovoral hurdrod school valld;r«n is .ml to nlmplo a task as may appear.

Municipalities are beginning to realize that the coet Jn clogged streets and congested traffic is greater than any advantage derived from routing through traffic through them. "While a few years ago the business interests in municipalities of all sizos appeared to t h i n k it da«irab1« to have major highway route« pas« through t h e i r principal atreetK," euya tlio dopartrneut, "they havo in recent years come to believe that it Is preferable to route this through traffio around tho congested business lis- trlct/j, with Blgim indicating clearly to passing motorists the way to get to "Ac bualnese oentvra ]f they desire.

Do You Believe In Astrology? .Astrological history can actually lia traced back to about 3000 B. C. and it i« presumed that it began even earlier. At that f f m « it WAS at? undisputed fact that man'fl life depended largely upon celestial phenomena- rain, wind, etc. It )s a short stop from sun and moon worship to A theory ii perfect accord between occiirrertcoB on earth and phenomena seen in ttij heavens. A cult was evolved which was developed and enlarged by succeeding civiliaatioiiB. Greece, Egypt, India, China, Rome, Arabia and Europe respected their aetroiogiste. From astrology coinen the belief in heaven- appointed mien. Napoleon, Walien- stein, and the Kaieor believed in thole stare. The fallacy, from the layman's point of view, eeeme to be that the planets, which cxfceted before the development ot the human mind, havo been named for mythological gods whoso characteristics havo, in turn, been attributed, to tbo plants.
