The Need Oj Preoention Everybody is pretty well up on the fact that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. One of these days we may have sjnse enough lo take that into account in every day life. Two stories in the daily pa|>crs recently give especial point to this. One of them concerns lltith St. (.'lair, the 29-year-old New York woman who got a life term when she was convicted of shoplifting for the fourth time. The other has to do with Charhs Hannah, (he 61-year-old misfit who confessed to the murder of four-year- old. Melvin Horsl al Arrville, 0. If there were two cases that pointed to the need for preventive measures these are the two. Take the St. Glair case first. Ruth St. Clair Ijas been up for shoplifting four times. All in all, .she lias stolen less than $1000 worth of merchandise. For thoic offenses she has been sentenced lo life imprisonment. There was a good deal of protest al this sentence. Then Ruth's, record was reveahd. II is discouraging. Repealed attempts have been made to help her. Various people have tried to "give her a chance." Every time she has been a back-slider. She is by no means subnormal mentally; yd some queer, unexplained quirk- in her make-up has ;pullud Jier back, each time, into a life of petty crime. Today, with all the good will. in Ihn world, New York officials aru/ forced to adnritithat she is about incorrigible. Life imprisonment seems to be almost the only answer. Then there is Hannah. Ho quit school as a boy and wont 'to work in the coal mines. Then he look up railroading, was fired for drinking, did odd jobs for years, drifted into bool- 'cgging, got into trouble—and finally wound up as the central figure in a peculiarly atrocious, revolting murder. Now neither of these people is what we call a half-wit. Bui each one has always been lacking, m .some, psychological sense—an "incomplete personal- * ity," as the psychologists pul it. lOach one, given a fair degree of bad luck, was almost certain, from earliest childhood, to wind up as an enemy of society. It's too late to do anything about it now, of course. The prison and the OUT OUR WAY electric chair mx 1 iiljont all that roninin.

We suitpo.-e il was generally understood that we had reference to the inirchasj of Cutely Chain Store .stock. We feel uow that we were rtniiss in our duty lo this commnnily in not sounding this warning sooner. Our only apology is lhal we have never held ourselves out a.-; advisers to the public, and that our motives would have bcui misinterpreted. We realize now lhal these reasons should nol have controlled us. By means of conspicuous example and high prcsiiiri salesmanship many thousands of dollars were secured from people of this community. The savings of women and lalwrinj' people were not overlooked. This monev was sadly needed in the community. We sincerely regret the probabilily of its loss. -But it caii- not now be helped. • If those having savings or inheritances to invest must seek investments awav from here, here are always listed bonds and'securities to be had which will be safe and which will vicld VinMT? m atu l Km "' e retllnl - An >' C;ON - bElUATIVE and miormcd bank manajfcmont can IK flepcndcil on to advise its patrons, when r:nuestcd to do so, of the soundness of stocks lining offered for sale.
