The Mailer of Service The fact thai Connie M;uk, manager nf the Phil:ulclphi;i Lc:iguc baseball club, has belli the ?10,000 Kthvanl w . llok iiwnnl for "having rendered the most oulsltmd- inij sf-rvice to I'liilndclpliiii" during; .1929 opens the way for a bit of medi- talion. Rendering a service to your horn:' town can be done in lots of ways, and probably there is no reason why a baseball pilot isn't jiu-t as eligible as anyone else. Yet one cannot help wondering; just whal-sort of service did Philadelphia's people give their city during 1020 if, nt the close of tho year, a com- miUce of. serious, iiilbllijjenl men found that the victory of a professional baseball club was the most noteworthy 01' the lot? There is just a HUle bit more to this than you might think. We get a little confused in our so/isc of valuer, every so often, and this Pbiladelpliia incidtnt illustrates it psrfc:tly. Philadelpliia, of course, is very nuicli like every oilier American city. H is a •little bigger than most of them, and some of the doings of its politicians and its underworld arc perhaps a bit beluw standard; but, on the whole, it is probably a typical American city in every way. Think over the situation of tlic average big city and .see if you can spot a few of the opportunities for improvement. They arc rather miiirrnus. A citizen looking for Hie chalice lo serve his town could find plenty to do, in Philadelphia or anywhere else. A judge could find plenty of ways to make the law more respected and honored. A politician could find plenty of ways to make the city government more responsive lo the people's .will. A police official could, quite easily, rnnke llio city s;|fer for honest men and women. A school official could help to give the city's rhildron a i;rwd preparation for the adult life that lies' ahead of them. A business man could do his part toward promoting happiness by making industry stable and efficient. An artist could make liis citv pleasant,r (ihu'e by Jiddii:;.:, a little bit, to the beauty and colnr available in it. You could li-nsthen that list indefinitely. H'.s long cii''iigh, though, to make one suspect, cither that Philadelphia's citizens miss'd a Sot of chances hist, year, or that Ui.' prize committee might have looked a little bit farther. Whtn nil American city names a professional athleto as ilm man who has served it brst :iirmi; ; -h an entire year, it is (juitt 1 obvious that either perform- unco or judgment lias gone slightly askew. SIDE GLANCES By George Claik Not the Wisest Course Somelimc:; ii. does :-.e:m as if our prison system could, ju.-t jio.-sibly, be rearranged so that it M'oiild do its work 'a little bit belter. A weekly magazine tells of the release t'nim iSinj: iSim,' prison of oui 1 Krank .Singer, who went in in 1001) for sloalii.g '••"'!• fiinjvr came out "unable to tie hi.s own lie o: 1 I'a.-'leii his collar." The state gave him $10, be had ?45 of his own. and lie. luwl earned, during bis term, nearly !?;>l). With this equipment he wa.- turned loose in a world which he had last seen mofe than 20 years age—lo sink or swim by his own de- Vices, with the aid of some $91. It is hard to escape a feeling thai there is something wrong with this picture. In theory, this Frank Singer should be chastened and repentrnt ready to take his place in society and earn his living in "an honest manner; but is he? Do thesa brief hints about him sound like it'.' Don't they .suggest that his 21-year prison sentence might not have been the wisest way of dealing with his case, back in 1009?

Hughes is confirmed for the supreme court, which is probably as it .should be. Despite the charges against, him, the man's reputation for learning, fair-mindedness and integrity is too great to cause many Americans to feel any dissatisfaction with his appointment. Nevertheless, no one need say that Ihe iiltack which certain senalor.s opened should not have been made. In a democracy such as ours Ihe Senate ought lo scrutinize such appointments very carefully.
