Knr a hliml, noiirly tlonf woman of ilO-otlil was ilyinK in :i C/ccliosloviikiiin village 1 near FniKiii', and tin; (fliosl of tlio \:\<l I'Xiirs could lit; imnlonud if it found soiwilhiny grimly amusintj in tltu circumstances. This woman was Katliiirina Hresch- ko-Hre.schl<owskayfi; and since thai nanit! is prelly long and unpronounceable, it is simpler to refer to her by the tille she used lo wear so proudly —"grandmother of the Russian revolution." She was already an old woman when the last Uonuinoir was shot to deiilh in a cellar at Ekaterinburg; and before that finie she had spent no less than 50 years of her life in'out 1 , or another of the czar's prisons Tor revolutionary activities. She hail been one 'of 'that • devoted bund (if Knssimi dreamer.'; who haled autocracy and oppression and risked the worst that the czar could do to \m\\K them to an end. Well, these dreamers finally had their way. The czars government fell, the Siberian prisons were emptied, and the great era of democracy and freedom seemed it I last ready to dinvn across Russia. And • then tlic revolution rai| out from under its little grandmother. Jnsload of freedom and democracy. Russia got Communism. Tlic czar was •" dead, an dhis nobles were either dead or in exile; but there was no place in the new order for those who had given their lives to the light against czarism, unless they happened lo believe in the particular kind nf revolution that Russia's new rulers were haiKliviK out. * * * So I his atfinn veteran of the czar's .prisons had to flee from Russia, jusl like any purse-proud nobleman. She went to foreign lands, remarking that she had wailed half a century for the downfall of the czars and was willing to wait equally long, if need he, fur Ihe downfall of the Bolsheviks. And when she came to her deathbed, at last, one of the friends who How Romantic! Then: is an odd human touch to thai case of thV Chicago ex-sailor who found that he could win his girl's favor only by [Kising as a hold, bad gun- man—anil who, because of thai fact, got himself into a jam with th epolice. This man found that his girl admired hoodlums. So, although he was a perfectly law-abiding citizen, he told her that he was one of the country's leading unde.-'irahles. jle had'shol several cops, he snid, had broken onl ol' Uvo prisons ami one jail; all in all, he added, he was a regular little Dillinger. Impressed, she accepted him, and they were happy. Then they i|ii!UTelcd. .Sho called the pulice and they took him in tow, and lie had to confess that his wickedness was all imagination. Even then, however., he begged them not to tell his girl. It' he was to regain her favor, he would have to retain the glamour of the bail man. It's idl i|iiite amusing, this little tale —until you rellcct that a lot of energetic young men have actually turned to crime because of just such altitude on the part of some empty-headed girl. . - -••-''•• .;-••• "•-•'.•• SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Extremes in Motoring \Villiam Collins, head of Ihe Cu»k anmty highway police in Illinois, believes that ncckers and naggers cause more traffic accidents than do drunken drivers. Kngaged cuiiples, he said, indulge in Ihe traditional hy-play of engaged couples as they drive along the road. Heing thus occupied, they fail to watch their driving closely. I'resenlly—bang! and there's another smash-up. With married couples it often works the other way. They i|iinvrcl, as married folk occasionally tio, get all wrap- jwd up in their quarrel, forget about the lurzards of traffic—and, again, there's another smash-up on (he highways. The moral seems lo be that any activity which diverts any part of a motorist's attention from the joli of driving is likely lo have serious consequences. TfceEittr 1 .
