!0.0 11 CCIE Reg. G. & Pet. oet.. Lir England Hangs Them. A Mother of Five. on British Scaffold. - Addis Ababa in 3 Days. The U. S. A. Holds Back. Business on the Mend. - By Arthur Brisbane TWO thousand English men and 1 women paraded around Winson Green Prison yesterday, protesting, while British 'just.ce hanged Dorothy Waddingliam, thirty-four-yearold mother of five children, one of them only six months Old She had committed murder; and In England when you commit murder they hang you, protest or no protest. The crowd, led by Mrs. Violet Van Der Els who objects to any capital punishment, was orderly. Some knelt and prayed. only the new King Edward could have saved the woman's life, and English Kings are too wise to meddle with law. The woman had murdered with poison a patient in her nursing home and the patient's daughter to get an $8,000 legacy, willed to her by the victim. The trap was sprung, a black flag was run up on the prison flag-staff, women knelt, praying and weeping, England had hanged the ninth woman in this century. They hang them in England, and they have few murderers. We parole them, or pardon them, or let them almost die of old age in prison, and have thousands of murders. - Rome reports, "Addis Ababa In three days," meaning that Ethiopia's capital is to be taken next week. That might remind some. Italians unpleasantly of the big' war, when Germans marching through Bel-glum, held up five fingers, saying In German: "Paris in five days." It WELS a long "five days," but Germany was fighting Prance, England, Russia and some other countries. Mussolini is fighting Ethiopia. - He says, by the way, that if Haile Selassie wants peace now, he must go direct to Marshal Pietro Badogli0 and get it from him. The League of Nations has waited and wavered too long to have anything to say about it. Victory makes us independent. - You read with mild surprise that throughout the world, generally. industrial activity would have been ahead recently, except that the United States held down the average. Leaving out the United States, world production increased. You wonder when this "richest country on earth" will catch up, and start ahead. The "Annalist" shows that in spite of floods, business here improved last month; the important increase was in automobile production, Men want to move, above whatever else they do. , Seeing the inside of things began long ago, when primitive woman learned to know what her husband was thinking. It began, physically, with the Roentgen and X-rays, bones photographed, bullets located. A remarkable new device for "seeing inside of things" is reported to Alfred P. Sloan Jr., by one of his laboratories. To learn what happens inside of an automobile cylinder when the gas explodes, a camera that, takes 5000 pictures a second, is geared to the crankshaft. Explosion in the cylinder from "flame to ashes" lasts only one 250th part of a second, but during that flash the camera takes 20 separate photographs. Old Daguerre, when he took his first Daguerre-types, and Ruskin who praised them, never dreamed of that. The speed of light, 186,000 miles a second, makes it possible. A wonderful thing is "microchemistry." It tells scientists that off the coast of Greenland sea water contains more gold than in New York Harbor; that one Tine in Switzerland has less goitre than another, because in the first the dewdrops contain i;aore iodine. - Dr. Bendetti Pichler of New York University, expects great things of microchemistry. developed originally by two Austrian scientists. - Besides being "the soul of wit," brevity is also a sign of youth. Senator Borah proved that he possesses brevity and youth after the Illinois primary election in which Colonel Knox carried Chicago, and he, Serlator Borah, carried the farming regions: "Knox," said he, "carried Chicago. I carried Illinois."
