Because of people leaving town, deaths, marriages, divorces and "unpleasant publicity'," 700 names were taken out, The biggest changes., however, were wrought by the doffing of service ranks when the "brass" of the army and navy became again the "Call Me Mister" boys. Numerous other changes came about when young couples who had lived with their parents somehow found a nest of their own and thus a new address. More than 800 new names were put into the register, which is gol- len out by Mrs. Carolyn Hagner 1U1U1 lllclLJUIl l>l lt.-l.Ulll. 1U13. AX. *~.

Tilt-;Ray'-V'ehetian 'Blind?.C6^ 1123 County Avenue, Phone 4520-W. New York, Dec. 23 — Lewis J. Valentine, the retired police commissioner, who died last week, was put away with a modest decorum in contrast to the mawkish farewell to Jimmy Walker only a little while before. They were opposites in character and when the good cop died, few were the tributes, and restrained, to a man who had done his duty and served the people better than they knew. None of the self-important and mock-modest trash of the middle- world of Broadway and Hollywood, a twilight world which lies between habitual decency and the great badlands of corruption, always disparaging the one and patronizing the other, elbowed for white paper and radio time to eulogize a man who had properly despised thier whole kind and would have been dishonored by their tributes. But good men and women, who might properly have raised a sigh over the sad end of a faithful servant just didn't know Valentine or what they owed him. And so, he went to his grave without public mourning, honored only by his i family and friends and with only ' the formal respects of the police department and the city. Of course Mr. Vaien.ine would not have had it other wise. He always regarded himself as a person when he could h:ive been a "celebrity" and he .stuck to his duty worked.much harder than he need and wore himself out, whereas Walker quit cold to temptation, shirked his responsibilities, betraj- ed the people's trust and, by the underworld's own code, dogged it under pressure. Jimmy cams to the mayoralty with the confidence and, actually, the love, of a majoi- ity of the people of the city of New York. He had his chance. So .did Valentine. Walker threw 'tham down. He was a crook in office he ran with rascals by preference who were delighted to run with him because their only hope of equality lies in degrading hiPh position to their own level, and" there is no way to measure the actu.il harm that he wrought in return for the affection of the people. To what degree he imoaired the people's confidence in their own ability to govern themselves by electing then pfficials; to what degree he planted cynicism in the hearts of a generation of children and young adults in New York and elsewhere, substituting slickness, flippancy, and dishonor for the teachings of -his own, church, God will judge.
