Thus, when a terrific dull boom came from the direction of Lakehurst at 7:23 one evening last week, everyone at the hospital knew Instantly what had happened, and the air base operator's horrified call was unnecessary.

H. £.. PRAYER"— BROCKVILLE, Ontario— When Lou Pelleticr was arrested near Brockville for driving Humorist- Economist Stephen Butler Leacock's truck without proper flares and clearance light. Dr. Leacock, a former resident of Montreal, pleaded guilty by mail, sent $19 to cover fine and costs, addressed "a humble prayer (uncopyrlght- ed>" to the magistrate:— "It Is not possible for me to read over the Ontario statutes regulating traffic and the various cases and precedents that interpet them. I am wel aware of the legal principle that •Ignorantla legis neminem excusat 1 but I claim that it belongs with a great deal of our law . . . whlcl the comlpexity of our industria life has rendered obsolete . . . My truck is painted green. Is that le gal or is it too Irish? I have no Idea. I am a member of the Church of England. Does that disqualify me from using a truck in Ontario? In what direction can I look for light. What remedy have I except to move back to the Province of Quebec, where they temper the administration of the law with the saving grace of common sense, and where a penitent tear blots out a fine." — o — PEE-WEE JOKE- SACRAMENTO, California: Famed in California Senate for introducing bills for the excl'iMvc 'ben- fit of his own county, San Diego's Senator Ed Fletcher was made the butt of a legislative joke in Sacramento last week when a Senate reading clerk uprose and, in hit most serious monotone, droned off the text of the bill which Senator Fletcher's colleagues had drawn up in familiar Fletcher style: "The sum of $8.635,000.03 is hereby appropriated from the unappropriated moneys of the general fund of this state for the purpose of dredgins Pee-Wee River in the county o Ban Diego, which rifer flows 2U inches of water during three days of each year, if and when it rains. Apparently fearing that the bil might be passed, the Senate joke sters had the Finance Committee attach an official amendment reducing the appropriation to three cents.
