No Juries In Italy Gradually all liberal institutions, p;ii'"" ticularly those BO tiikcn for granted in •-'• the .United States and Great Britain, are being totully eliminated from tlic :;; " .daily life of Italy. The latest edict is.•;'.';. sued by Signer Rotco, minislei' of jus- ,.,.„;„„ tice, lias abolished the jury system. In criminal cases, Signer Hoceo has "U; invented a new 1 form of court. He nays - he does not want to rely entirely upon '*„.'. ..'regular judges, because it is necessary ,."'.-" that ithe sentence inflicted .shall reflect the sentiments aroused by the crime in the public mind. Henceforth >'•""'-in such cases there will be a mixed '••' -bench, composed of seven judges. M.*™."... Two of these will-'be regular magistrates. The other live'will be "iisscs- • ,,.sors." They will be selected from the "•;'". body of the citizenry. Besides possess- ;„"..„,,ing the qualifications of education and -"-•'•-property, they must be of good -moral '^i^.' and political behavior—which, of course, ''•-'• >"' means, they must be good Fascists.

Cheap Transportation From Gallipolis, 0., to Baltimore, by land, is roughly 300 miles. By water —down the Ohio and Mississippi riv- __ ers, through the Gull' of Mexico and ' up the Atlantic to Cliesapcake Hay-it is about 3000 miles. Hut :t Gallipolis business firm has just dispatched a cargo of pickles to Baltimore by water, believing that this will l>i: cheaper then sending it by land. A more graphic iilliirflraUon of the cheapness of water-borne transportation could hardly be found anywhere. It explains, perfectly why the inland waterways arc beginning to be popular with shippers once more. It explains why the Alahoning Valley steel district wants a,canal to tho Ohio river; why Chicago wants a deep waterway to the Mississippi; why tlic whole middle west wants a deep water channel down the St. Lawrence. A nation :IM fond of economy as the United States will eventually utili'/.u tin's cheap means of transportation tu , the fullest extent. • : DoWn'at the Bottom '•' Leonard P.

Furthermore, he points out ". that recovery depends on so many in;;' volved factors that there is ^10 way of ;;; telling when prosperity will return. However, his announcement is at ;;•< .'east slightly soothing. If \\\-c can't "•- tcr, it is something to learn that they "•• aren't going to get any worse. ",,,..
