The City Election We )i;u;e noted (hat (juilc n. number of residents or 1 Wylhcville ' liaVc rallier decide;! views as to which of the three camlklatcs ought (o !,e elected municipal judge at the city election next Tuesday. It is; of course, highly desirable that the man bosL qualified by (raining, experience and lempcrmnL-nt be elected to the ofliTO, just, as it is highly de,-irable that the boH qualified candidate be elected to any posit ion of public service and responsibility. It occurs to us, however, thai more imiwriant than the election of the best man, in this 'or any other political contest, is the election of the mini who is actually ij U : choice of the legally qualified voters. . We often mffcr from the election to public of lice of incompetent or otherwise poorly (nullified men. Kni as long as our elections ; ,re conducted as pre- scrilwUy law the people have in their hands flic power lo remedy such evils. When elections arc not hclil according to law power is taken from the Immls of the people, and I hoy have no certain recourse against official incompetence or corruption. The municipal election last spring was followed by a contest which, while it pwliitnl Jillli; il' ,'uiy evidence of fraudulent intent, did bring to light rather widespread laxity in the enforcement of the poll tux anil other requirements Tor voting. It js to lie hoped that as a result of last year's experience election officers will adhere .strictly to Hie letter ol 1 tlic l.'iiv in check ing Ihe qualifications of those siwkiujr tn vote. We hnvn heard a mfmber of those ap[K>iiited to serve us election judges and clerks assert that none,but persons whose legal right to vote bus been definitely established will cast ballots .it their boxes, and we believe that attitude promise-, an election strictly in keeping with the in- lent of (he law. l''or the information of citizens il is worth reviewing |, L 're thai, in addition to the citi/cnship and residence requirements, the principal qiifdilication of a lepd voter i« Lhat he possess it receipt showing j«ay'im:iil of pull lax between January I, 1031, and .July 5, lfl;il. Payment of poll tax I'.wcpl between those (lull's does nol qualify the holder of (he receipt lo vole. Strange Justice The strange way in which tile machinery iif justice occasionally works was never better exemplified than in the recent trial of Dan Nevins for murder in a New York court. While (lie jury was dolibeivitinff, Nevins decided _ that the shadow of the electric chair was rather chilling. So he arranged to plead gnilly to a charge of manslaughter an;t to accept a .sentence of live to ten years in prison. Meanwhile the jury, ail unknowing, reached its verdict—and found him not guilty! The verdid, Iwcause of his «c\v plea, was not accepted. Among other things, one would like to know Nevins' reaction when lie found this out. H would also be in- lerei-linjf to know hoM-" llm jo/ors fell when they learned thai the man they had acquitted had confessed his guilt.

'.;. 14) The Advertisements .... printed for your convenience Suppose all the advertisers in your favorite newspaper should stop advertising for a week. .What inconvenience would result! How much telephoning and shopping around to get the answers to such questions as: "What's playing at the downtown theaters? When will that new vacuum cleaner be on sale? Who is offering the bargains? Wnere can I buy that dry shampoo Emily told me about? The answers to these questions, and to hundreds of similar ones that people ask every day, are news. Vital news. You're interested to learn who won yesterday s ball game. But you're really interested to learn that a certain store is selling a product you need for a price you can afford to pay. Furthermore, the advertisements save your time, for you can read them at home, away from the pushing: crowds, and plan just what to buy and where to buy. And they save your money, by enabling you to adjust your needs to the limitations of your budget. in snort, they are pocketbook editorials, condensing and interpreting for you the merchandise news n t the day.
