Ethical Codes The ethical codes of Ihc so-calturt learned professions serve ;i valuable' purpose in protecting legitimate practitioners and (lie general public iVoin charlatans, quacks and sliyslurs. But they have their ridiculous aspects and their ineotisisleiieies, which sometimes have the effect of defeating the ends they are intended to achieve. Take, for example, the ban upon advertising ;whicli applies In physicians and lawyers. The and competent lawyer, the"skillful physician, if he adheres to the ethics of his profession, is barred by- rulo from soliciting pntron- ajje in an open and above board manner and by his own conscience sense of personal dignity from adopting such subterfuges, na often serve the ends of his less honorable but superficially equally ethical colleagues. lie must sit in his office and look wise until by some miraculous means the HEWS'that he is a man of ability gets spread abroad nnrl by gradual stages his reputation becomes established. The chief beneficiaries of this conspiracy of silence ore the very tjiucks and shysters at whom codes of ethics • arc aimed. Obedient to no codes, they , thrive by exploitation of Ihe means that are denied honest practitioners and obtain numerous victims who would bu denied them were honorable professional men permitted to l statc their wises. There is a need for ethical standards • '"i^DLJinc of businosK ibut they should be based on the .ordinary canons of decency and morality; There is no need for artificial regulation^ that in extreme cases are nolhing short of conspiracies in restraint of trade.

Fur many yuars the assessments were kept sGcivl; and so, though (buy w, : rc ama/.- i)if,')y »m'f|iiitl and uiijusl, nu one knew it, and those who wore being fleeced never protested. A couple of years ago, however, Hie State Tax Commi:vion ordered UK- assessment published. And then the trouble came. Chicago citi/cns rose in wrath, and while the present period of bankruptcy is mighty unplea.smil it will end in a much faiivr, more efficient assessment and Chicago will be much better off. » Shady political exploits are always pulled off in (he dark. If the liglil of. publicity is kept shining all the time graft and incompetence can't get very far. SIDE OUNCES By George Clark Bcncs of a prehistoric sloth-have been discovered.

' • A Lover of ilit Se a One hears 1'Yeclilie Hals has a line old model ol a clipper-ship on his mantel piece nnd that ills favorite form ol menial exercise !s to sit and contemplate it. Everyone says that he passionately loves the sea. In fact, he Is often fondly tailed "Kcwbuat JIulc," nllbogui'i that may be only because former (Senator Jim Hccrt of Missouri during the littt cruiser bill debute described him as "a row-boat setting up as Ihe flagship nl ihc navy."

Mrs. Eugene Hale, the mother, was once Hie social arbiter of Washington and Is distinguished as the woman who had a father, husband and son in the Senate. For Eugene Hale, Freddie's father, was a senator from Maine and he married the (laugiilcr of Zaclwrian Chantiier, lamo'uS senator from Michigan. I'crhaps Ihe outstanding ihiu» about Senator Freddie Hale is ttiu fact that he was worlli 550,000 to Ills father and mother when lie was bom. Old Znchariah Chandler promised his daughter and son-in-law .thai lie would 'pay (hem $50,000 lor every child of (lie union and thus ' Fred Hale helped his parents pile up $150,000. Hulc, like his mother, hntes publicity. He is wL'll educated and l many friends 'u'ho are nltvays willing to rush to his defense,' but his shyness causes him olien to become brusque and so 'he is some- limes accused ol being arrogant.

He Wiis Slow Once Some of the Big Navy folks complained that Freddie Hnle was a litllc slow in getting to work on the 10-cmiscr bill and had let the pacilisls get in all their best licks against it before their own 'side got started, but if so the delay was not traceable lo Halc's lack o; good intentions. When Ihc William B.
