R., but a lively conscience still wins admiration now and then. Newspapers recently reported with satisfaction the case of a jeweler who stumped into a police station, removed his wooden leg and poured from its hollow interior a flood of diamonds and other gems, appropriated many years ago while he was working as an appraiser. "I couldn't bear the shame of hiding treasure stolen from the Soviet Government," he explained. LOOK 'EM OVER BOYS!! Each man to his own taste. '^ The fact is ... they are ALL winners.

Lawson of consiracy in the operation of a brokerage concern, looked forward today to freedom, granted by Governor Herbert R. O'Conor. The men, Frank Mueller, Frederick A. Mueller and Vincent L. Clisham, had served all but about three months of one-year terms. Lawson 1 was sentenced to three years. The Governor's statement made no mention of clemency for him. In announcing the paroles, along with four others, O'Conor said the sentencing judge and a majority of the jury convicting them had recommended paroles. At the time of their sentencing, the Governor recalled, Lawson "accepted full responsibility for the acts which were the basis of the indictment. "All three of them liave made good prisoners," O'Conor continued. "None has. been in difficulty before, and employment has been provided for them from responsible individuals or firms if they are released." "In recommending that these three men be released now, the di- rector of the division of parole and probation states that there was no doubt in the mind of the court that the three men were obeying instructions from their superior * * * I have cai*efully reviewed all of the facts in the several cases and realize the serious effect upon many persons who were victimized thru bogus stock transactions figuring in the case. However, I am not called upon to do more than to mete out justice to the three individuals whose release at this time is urgently recommended." E. F. Russel of Sweet Home, Ore., owns a wagon said to have been in continuous use from 1852 to 1925.

GREECE SQUELCHES RUMOR OF DEAL ON CORRIDOR ATHENS, Greece (£>).—Greece has no intention of giving Bulgaria a corridor along the Greco-Turkish frontier as a commercial outlet to the Aegean Sea. Reports that Greece had agreed to such a concession under pressure from "a great power"—presumably Germany—were spiked by General Metaxes, "dictatora" premier, in a recent speech here. Metaxas said Greece- was strongly opposed to such a policy, which would drive a wedge between Turkey and Greece, now linked by the Balkan Entente.
