Not Infaliittt With those who deplore what they term the modern lack of respect for the institutions and the personalities of government we would take i.-:sue. Americans have not yet come as far as is desirable from the ancient sub- jcct-to-king altitude in their point of view .toward certain of. our higher judicial and executive officers. Government and the officers of government, even, unto justices of the supreme court and presidents of these United States, should receive the respect their: actions merit and no more. Certainly sight should not be lost of Hie fact that judges and officers are not dcmi-gods, but human being*, subject to the same influences that govern the 'thoughts and actions of men who wear no black,- robes 'or high' silk hals. '(Addressing the graduating class of tiio-Northwestern University school, of liiw at Evanslon, ,111., .the other day, James M. Beck, former solicitor gen- erjal of the United States, urged his liearers ,to.,av<j5d "the subserviency with which' lawyers have for generations . approached, its (the supreme court's) portals and reviewed its decisions as though they were incapable of error." The common sense of the matter is that with all its learning and all its wisdom the supremp court has no more of inherent infallibility rural magistrate. fn<;ii<llmtt.-:s which those who know him fool towiird Judge Driver. After all the only really important consideration is that the man we send to Washington be the one who can best serve Hie district and the slale. In character, ability and experience, with particular emphasis upon his intimate i'.ajiiiiintance with our all-important river control and drainage problems, Mr. Driver has the qualifications which this district needs at the national capitol. Reparations and War Debts If the British foreign office is really preparing to do what il can to help Cjurinuny gain a reduction in reparations payments, the chances fov Ku- rope's recovery from its economic and social sickness are measurably better than they were before. Every discussion of the industrial depression in Knrope gels buck, .sooner or later, lo (Jcnniiii reparations. There is abundant evidence to indicate that a scaling down in the reparations payments must be the first step on the road back to health. Tile British government, apparently, is ready to recognize that fact publicly. This, of course, will involve reopening of the whole question of the war debts; and it might pay tile United •Slates to re-examine its attitude on the subject very closely. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark than W. ]. Driver • Announcement, nl Forl Smith by Walter Riiney of McCrory that lie would probnbly bo H cumlkl:ilc for tliu conjjicsaional scat now held by Judge W. J. Driver of Osccola prompts us to remark that in our opinion the number of men in. public life who have met Ihe responabilities oi public service as-con- sialcnlly as has Judge Driver is small, and thai as long as he is ablu niul willing to serve the First Arkansas District can do no better than to keep him where he is. This is said without disparagement of Sir. Raney or of any others who may desire the honor of representing this district at Washington. Nor is it merely or chiefly an expression of the The Revel Goes Merrily On Nothing: will end It; nothing v.lll slop It, but "a tea party of the Boston kind," .is the Saturday Evening Post 1ms wisely suggested." 'You and your neighbor have cut your living' expense.'; trying lo make belli ends meet- You are dolnj without the many tittle things you.would like to have, indnstiics are chopping the heads olf of employes, but Ihe politician • goes merrily on lite way, on an abandoned, reckless spending spree.

Many of the victims wcr:: women and children, 120 of the latter being either killed or Injured. The larse number of casualties was due to th3 fact that the catiiis places in the East End were crowded at the hour of tin; raid, schools \ver? still in session and large numbers of persons were on the streets. No damage of a military or naval nature was done. Only one of the attacking planes was brought down. A supplementary official report stated In part: "The air raid over London lasted about 1C minutes.
