10A SATURDAY BROOKLYN TIMES UNION OCTOBER 28, 1933 ANOTHER LETTER FROM A BALD-HEADED DAD TO HIS RED-HEADED DAUGHTER By ROBERT QUILLES My dear Louise: For the first time in your life you are on your own. You have been away from home on short visits, and you have been without guidance here at home while we were away; but leaving home to attend school gives you a degree of responsibility that is new in your experience. As the old-timers used to say, life is holding your feet to the fire for the first time and now I shall learn what stuff you are made of. The two greatest tests of character are prosperity and liberty, and we never know how we shall survive either until we try it. Of course you haven't complete liberty. Perhaps you think the rules give you very little. But those rules are a part of the game and your reaction to them is the test. You can't get away from rules ever. They are necessary restrictions, suggested by experience, and every game you play will have them. They are so necessary, in fact, that it becomes a point of honor to obey them and a violation of good sportsmanship to break them. Anybody could win by breaking the rules of honesty or the rules of tennis or bridge, but breaking rules is cheating and the cheat is the lowest form oj animal life. I don't mean that your character will be ruined if you break one of the rules in school. Many a fine youngster does it. But there are different ways to break rules and the method determines the harm. To break a rule openly and boldly, with your chin up and your conscience clear, is merely a mild adventure. It leaves your self-respect still clicking. But if you sneak oh, my dear, there is nothing more shameful under heaven. It makes you an inferior, cringing from a master. Pride and honor and a clear conscience never sneak. Why should they? Sneaking is the role of the fearful, the guilty, 'the low. It does something to your soul. You simply can't sneak and keep your self-respect unscarred. There are innumerable thousands who sneak to break the rules of society, and not one in the lot can look the world in the face with the calm assurance that rewards a clear conscience and the pride of decency. I have no great awe of rules. Some of them are silly. But if you must break a rule, bust it wide open in broad daylight. Don't let a foolish little rule make a sneak of you. Love, DAD.

One of his suggestions was to replace court attendants with retired policemen and to stop paying judges for drawing juries. A firm believer In the need of proper transit facilities in Brooklyn, he wrote in 1924 that the "rapid transit situation has a direct reflection on the business of the borough" and stated that were the "'much nee-led subways In operation, property values would repay the city for their construction."

"Having been a Democrat since 1876, 1 desire to remain regular, but at the same time be fair. "Mr. Qua vie and Mr. Jacoby hao both repudiated the Democratic or ganization of Kings County. They are, nevertheless, on the Demo cratic ticket. "Two men, Mr. Moran and Mr. Frank, were candidates in the pri maries (Democratic) tw opposition to the two now named. "Of course the organization pre vailed. "Now these two men. Moran and Frank, are running on a separate ticket under the emblem of the Statue of Liberty. "I desire as a Democrat to cast my vote for Moran and Frank. "1 cannot stipiort two grasshop pers as I admire persistency. Will you advise me If I am right Thanks a lot." It Is not my business In tills column to advice readers how to vote. I am Interested only In telling the readers what I glean from day to day, how the wind is blowing and what tho wiseacres are saying about the outcome. You have been a Democrat, you say, since 1878. Probably you voted for Samuel J. Tilden. My father used to tell me there was great excitement In those days over what the boys called "the great theft of the Presidency." Any man who has been voting as many years as you certainly will know how, to cast his ballot this time. I respect you as one of the sages of the party. Anything you do will be from a sense of duty and will be right ST. MARY'S BAZAAR V. lilgby. writing from St. Mary's rectory, 85th st. and 23d ave., informs me that the congregation Is continuing its bazaar tonight and tomorrow. "Under the keen and able guidance of the pastor," he writes, "aided" by the chairman, William Mnrtha, the united societies of the parish are pushing this bazaar to success. It is one or tne most attractive ever held In the Benson- hurst section." The pastor, the Rev. P. Brady, Is hoping tnat many ot tne oin parishioners of St. Mary's will call before tne rtazaar is oer ami recall old times. ' Father Brady has built up a great parish in that section. The annual bazaars always draw big crowds and not the least Interest lnr feature Is the enthusiasm shown by old parishioners, who usually come in from other parts to see Father Brady and recall oia times. LOOKS LIKE SET-UP Joseph Cox, welfare director or the ijong i.-iana mitomonue Clubs and a member of its board of directors, calls my attention to the fact that "no matter wno is elected Mayor this year we will have a Democratic boss. "Did it Btrlke you as funny," he asks, "to think that, no matter who Is elected Mayor, we will still be ruled bv a Democratic boss? "McKee's political mentor Is Edward J. Flynn of the Bronx, a Democrat: Mayor O'Brien's polit ical chieftain is John F. Curry, also a Democrat, while Florello H. L,a Guardia's principal advisor is Samuel Seabury, undoubtedly Democratic. "Our friends the Republicans were asleep at the Bwltch." That's right, Joe. whether Tammany, Flynn or Fusion wins we will have a Democrat behind the scenes, pulling the strings. We will know which after Nov. 7. MEMORIES OF BILL Harold Posner of 329 Wilson ave. Bends me a letter he received from former Gov, William Sulzer. The ex-Governor, It seems, reads O'Loughlln's column regularly and Is keenly Interested as an onlooker of course In the passing political show. Time was, and not so lonjt ago, when Sulwr waa "the bin noise'' In Tammany campaigns. He was tire organization's most xipulur Iteprc-nciitatlve. He had the run of things In Washington. He was Charles l .Murphy's most dceiidahle man. When Oscar Ktraus, brother of Nathan was nominated for Governor by the Bull Moose party In 1912, the year of the Republican split, Tammany thought It saw a chance to slide a man Into the governshlps. Klre-eatlng Bill was slipped out of the deck and under tho guidance of Murphy camo through a winner. landing In the Executive mansion on January 1, 1911. To the amazement of everyone a row developed between the Tammany boss and his Governor. The latter defied the chieftain and threatened to wipo out bosslsm the State. It became a natlonsl sensation. Murphy prepared for war. "Kulaer must ko," Murphy' dictum. The Governor appealed to the people of the State and the nntlon. It looked like a fight in which tho Governor might become a pop ular Idol and emerge a national figure. Hut the climax came when the organization dug Into Kuliser's cam paign contribution and found some Hem that had not been reported. Senator Frawley brougnt action I for Impeachment, and before anyone realized what was taking place the Governor was on trial before the house and to the amazement of the nation was ejected from office. It was unbelievable, but never theless so, Sillier had been tripped un on a simple thing. Uut U waa enough to Ao what Should Vote for Register to Puzzle Some. T. O'LOUGBLiti Charley Murphy wanted done oust Sulwr from Uie governorship. Sulzc-r at first could not realize he was out. He tried several times to come buck. At the first of the year he had tuken ofricc, being sworn in amid pomp and festive rejoicing. A few months afterward, politically speaking, he wus walking the streets. Those who had hung around Sul-zer slipped away TIiono who had fawned upon him, hoping for advancement from a man known to be closo to the big boss, shunned him. He found himself a political outcast. Tammany put the Indian sign on him and the braves or the Wigwam avoided lilin. 1 always liked Bill. He was blustery, but big-hearted. He always carried a plug of chewing tobacco and never started a task without biting off a good-sized "chaw." He was almost like a sailor in that respect. It was the biggest surprise In the world when he fell out with the boss. It spelled political doom for him. O RKIEX IN SIXTH A. D. I see that the Democratic candidate for Mayor Is to visit the Sixth A. D. next Wednesday night and it will lie the first time In 30 years that anyone so high on the ticket has visited that section. Mayor O'Brien is to be welcomed to the clubhouse at 116 Tompkins ave., over which rules Deputy Com-mlssoner of Hospitals John H. Ger-ken. He will meet many friends there and, I have no doubt, get a big reception. This district Is now heavily Jewish and the voters will turn out to cheer the man who defied the Hitler leader a few days ago, when he refused to let him speak at the 69th Regiment Armory in Manhattan. Eire Commissioner John J. Dor-mnn, who hailed originally from that section, will preside. NHERITS ESTATE Mrs. Elizabeth E. Comey Leaves Over $5,000; A. W. White Gets Wife's $9,000.
