The law is mighty; let it take its ' course for punishment is sure and certain. Another order is anarchy.” This is the popular acclaim. And yet the court moves slowly, the patience of the people until ¡t reaches the breaking point. Northern writers who hate the South likely will r and give vitriolic denunciation to the lynching of Marsha Ratliff yesterday. They will froth at the mouth and score, censure, excoriate and pound out diatribes against us for taking the law in our own hands. Speedy justice! Where is it? Not in the courts, fo the citizens had to punish Ratliff. Two years had passe:' The murdere v as condemned, but he lay on his cot in Has 1 nd feigning ,iralys:s. Then he leaped into action wi a, e c ' O' .-a jailer. \ 5 i a lou.i v(d e many say: Let the law takes course' e* the wounded jailer says from what may I deathbed: “I arn glad they did it.”. Speedy justice! That took many months to han Hickman, world’s most brutal assaulter and butcherer 0 12 -year-old Marian Parker! Speed justice! That keeps Aldredge and Merriman still in jail a year after one of the most heinous criminal assaultings in Texas history! Speedy justice! It’s all right for the other fellow t< plead for this, but when his own family is concerned he cares not whether a lynching be anarchy or not. When one’s daughter or womanfolks are victims of a fiendish black or licentious white, he is afraid to risk the courts— he wants SPEEDY JUSTICE right now, pronto! Speedy justice in this day and time is a misnomer— and yet we are to blame. Every one of us is indirectly concerned. We can rectify it.- Marshall Ratliff may have got what he deserved but we must work to make speedy justice a reality—the bringing of a murderer to the electric chair in a few weeks’ time instead of years. --------000Q000-------- What Think Ye of Birth Control? TAO YOU believe in birth control? Most folks do—they practice it anyway whether they believe in it or not. The Rev. Mr. McGrath, Catholic priest, brought the matter to the fore last week ai^d seldom has a subject beei so discussed locally as this onie. The priest^&eclared tba folks should literally praetice-$he!,Biblical admonition tv ‘ Be ye iruitful and multiply”—that folks who used ati\ contraceptive measures were “committing a mortal sin.: Strong words from any minister whose church forbic him to marry and to practice what he preaches. While it is necessary for the majority of people win marry to bring forth children to perpetuate the race, we believe it is just as big a “crime” to have too many as tc have none. Not all people should have children. The diseased, the frail, the ill probably come in this class. But for a couple to bring into the world twice as many children as they can care for is a mistake, in our opinion. It can easily be seen that folk reared in squalor, shuntec. into the world on their own hook early in life, living ii the wrong environment might readily become tools of criminals—hating society. The trouble is—poor folks usually have more children than they can properly care for; the rich who are able have less than they should. Complete birth control and unrestrained multiplication of the race are both bad and fallacious doctrines. One means race suicide; the other means a tendency to producing a weak race of serfs 01 ¿eons, cl persons of wrong inclinations- There is an exception to this rule as all others, how ever. Caruso was about the seventeenth child of a family of nineteen. Yet while Caruso gained world fame the otheA eighteen are unknown and unheard-of. The church, say.; Brother McGrath, takes the attitude that the Lord will provide a way for those who love Him and have many children. Probably true; but most folks are unwilling to risk it. 000O000-------- Some Suggestions to Deer Hunters TT has about gotten so in this country that a fellow can’t go deer hunting without getting either fatally shot 01 seriously wounded. Nine fatalities have taken place thus far this year and the season has just begun. Two men were killed yesterday, one of them being Doc Stewart, former Texas University coach. It all results from carelessness. A party goes to the mountainous region to hunt the elusive deer. As soon a. someone sees a figure moving he blazes away. Sometimes it happens to be a man who is killed. Folks must become unusually nervous at the prospects, and the itching trigger finger gets out of control. State officials say that folks who go deer hunting Should wear a red coat and red hat to complete the disguise. Added to this a feather should be stuck in the cap and then carrying an alpenstock, said nimrod would be a perfect replica of a Swiss Alps climber getting ready to ascend the dizzy heights of the Matterhorn. Things have come to a pretty pass, though, in Texas or anywhere else when a man has to disguise himself to keep from being shot for a deer. Each year several are killed duck hunting but most time fatalities are avoided because the hunter fires into the air- It’s a good thing. Most nimrods go to Kerrville district to bag the deer. They are armed with high-powered rifles that are extremely deadly. \Ve would not be facetious about so serious a matter but we have been studying the problem of preservation 0? human life. Since every time a man separates himself from •the hunting group he is danger of being shot some other means must be used. Many go after the deer but few are brought back. Tliis means the average feljow gets so excited when a deer jumps * out of the brush tjiat the ¿iRimal is practically impossible to hit. Thus if every man would get himself some antlers And gambol through the brush saying, “I’m a deer, I’m a deer,” the hunters could pump away to their hearts’ content without fear of danger to the one disguised.
