Racketeers And Farmers It-has been quite generally believed that the racketeer Is a phenomenon developed only in large cities, but the recent activities of Jack (Legs) Dia- mom, in the Catskills indicate even the farm communities are goini; to suffer along with the rest. If Diamond hud not been liberally punctured ..with shot it would liaVc been interesting to lind out how a rural .s.ection can handle a yangstei;. problem. • : Diamond was charged with having his gang burn the feet of a farmer to force him to tell thq destination of a load of cider. The significant thing about that was: the farmer dared to complain to officials despite the fear of being killed. Justice iui't so involved in the country sections. The machinery isn't so complex. : There is less of corruption.. Farmers have a 'habit of meting it out without dallying over technicalities. If that had happened in this particular case it. might hivvc set a precedent winch would have started the downfall of gangster terrorism. Generosity In Dollars When a generous .gesture is made with dollars, instead of words, it deserves to be listed with noble impulses. There are entirely (too many cases of sticky sentimentalism for which laurel wreaths^re^jilaited and press nortecs are given. .But when you get,'a greenback version of unsellishncsis it is fairly reliable. Last year ia bank in Vineland, N. J., failed. School children lost $37,000. The, money which (hey had earned in mowing lawns njul shoveling snow and wiping dishes vanished. The round silver dollars that were special birthday gifts, and the quarters that had been saved when they wanted to- see a movie and didn't were completely gone. \ Colonel Evan 0. Kimble, the head of another financial institution in the Same city, knew what the reaction of those youngsters would be. They would decide that yon couldn't trust savings accounts. They would buy caramels and gumdrops and go to movies and ball games whenever they had any NEWS OUT OUR WAY money. They would come to the de- cisiou thai thu wisest tiling to do is to spend your money Ijefore something happens to it. Colonel Kimblc realized thai hoys and girls who held this attitude couldn't train for the citizenship. Therefore, (roni the cofl'eivs of his own bank, he dragged out the money bags and restored to each child the sum thai he had lost. Certainly the children who had preferred another bank to his didn't expect such largesse. Hut they arc going to remember it. They are going to realize that fair play and generosity still rnakq up u big part in life, or else a benefactor would not have / made such a gift. There are those who will say that the bank acted as a benefactor because iHs counting on the profits which will accrue from, the new accounts that will be ojxjned. But such accounts will be small, at best. It will he a long time until the boys and girls will be making noticeable sums of money. The money which the bank- could have loaned would have done more for it financially Hum the new accounts can do. Colonel Kimble is representative of tlte type of business men who are putting a conscience in their work. He realized that ilj is just as important to teach future citizens that the financial backing will-, which they deal is secure as it is to encourage them to send their coin to India's starving millions. Colonel Kimblc made a sulid contribution to citizenship. lie deserves to be mentioned. —Helen Welshimer.

Now, one time I heard o! a congrcsalion that was having trouble nnd no one seemed to know just how to find out and s=t a correction, so I iiudo ssverii! trips to that church and finally I located their trouble.
