Not Infallible With those who deplore what they term the modern luck of respect for tlio institutions and the personalities of government we would Uko i-suc. Americans have not yet come ;is l';\r as is desirable from the undent subject-lo-king attitude in their puint of view-toward certain ol'. our higher judicial and executive officers. Cioveni- ment and Die otl'icers of government, oVen. unto justices of the supreme court and presidents of these United States, should receive the respect the.ii' actions merit und no more. Certainly sight should not be lost of the fact that judges and officers ale not dcmi-gods, but liuniiin beings, subject to the same influences that govern the 'thoughts and actions of men who wear no black/robes'or high' silk hats. '(Addressing 'the graduating class of . tho'Northwestern University school of law at''Evanston, ,111., ,the other day, . James "M. Beck, former solicitor general, of the United States, 'urged his fearers ,. to. ,av(jlid "the subserviency -with which' lawyers Kuve for genera- tjons approached, its .'(the supreme court's) portals and reviewed its decisions • as though they were incapable of error." Tho common sense of the matter is that with, all its learning and all ils . wisdom the supreme: cbuvt has • no more of inherent infallibility than a rural magistrate. friendliness which those who know him feel toward Judge Driver. After all the only really important consideration is that the man we send lo Washington be the one who can best serve the district and the stale. In character, ability and experience, with particular emphasis upon his intimate acquaintance with our all-important river control and drainage problems, Mr. Driver has the qualifications which this dhtrict needs at the national capital.

Dricer ; Announcement at Fort Smith by Waiter Uaney of McCrory that lie would probably bo a candidate for the congressional seat now held by Judyo W.'. J. Driver of Osceola prompts us lo • remark that in our opinion the number of men in public life who have met the resnoiiiibilitics of. public service as-consistently as has Judge Driver is small, and that as long as he is able and willing to serve the First Arkansas District can do no better than to keep him where he is. This is said without disparagement of Mr. Rauey or of any others who may desire the honor of representing this district at.Washington.

Thanks lo the varying versions whispered by persons who are supposed to know the administration's mind, tlie complete silentc of Uharlie himself and Ihe hot- wenth- [nics:'?3 ot the journalists in our nation's capital, the Uunls issue has produced most of such mystery and much of such humor as has been injected inlo the nrc- camij:tign situation.

What lie JliRht Do TODAY IS THE-/ THIS CURIOUS WORLD BfGGKST A1H «A1I> On June 13, 1917, the worst German air raid over England was carried onl In the broad daylishl of noon, when a squadron of German airplanes bombed the East End an:! the business sections ot London, killing 97 Arsons and injuring -137. Many of the victims wer2 women and children, 120 ot tlie latter being either killed or injured. The laryc number of casualties was due to th2 fact, that the eating places in the East End were crowded at the hour of the raid, schools were still in session and large numbers of persons were on the streets. No dam- use ol a military or naval nature was clone. Only oi:c of HID attacking planes was brought clown. A suppltmenlary official rejx>rt stated in part: ''The air raid over London lasted about 1C minutes.
