Some Memories Jor Mr. Hughes If Charles Evans Hughes cares to do a bil'of soliloquizing as he reUirns lo . the supremq judicial bench, ht will find "plenty of material in the thing.-, that have happened during his H-yciu retirement from that high court. \Vlicn lie-resigned his justiccshfpriii • 1016, Europe wns at war and this na.. tion was at peace—and expected to "remain so. Herbert Hoover was feeding .Belgians, Al Smith was a New' York politician and Calvin Cooliilge was climbing the ladder in Maastiehiisells. Prohibition looked like an impractical dream, ownership of an automobile meant that a man was fairly well-to- do and the British navy was as large as any two others combined. It was, in short, an utterly different world when Hughes last sat in the supreme court—a world that seems as far . removed, now, as the eni of the Civil War. But it was only 14 years ago. If Jlr. Hughes' return (o (lie bench - sets his memory working, he will have plenty to think about. Aviation Sets a New Record Despite acci;!nnU, commercial nvin- tion continue.? to gain.
