MOVIE ON DOPE EVIL HERE FOR MIDNIGHT SHOW Heroin has three times the strength of morphine, and its users are the most advanced and difficult of all addicts to restore to normalcy. According to government authorities, mature heroin addicts frequently take sufficient quantities of this powerful drug at a single shot, which, if applied to a norma man or woman would cause instant death. It is too, the most difficult of all cases to eradicate and consequently cures among the heroin addicts are practically unknown. It is generally conceded that even after the most prolonged and thorough scientific treatments that the effects of this relentless drug may be eradicated from tSIe body, but that it Is almost Impossible to rid the victim's mind from its over- metropolitan centers are notoriously pro-Roosevelt, and why not.

France* B«r«n« crack for our little third baseman, because two hypocritcal men. gossipers, he was thrown out of the game, and the sub third baseman deliberately put in, not even investigating the case. These two men were at Buffalo Center's celebration, and came home and reported that Kohnke was celebrating very highly with a lady friend, at a very late hour. Believing this like they usually do all other gossip, never a word was said to Kohnke, but he was taken out, and you saw the results. They took this lady friend's boy friend for Kohnke, as there is a slight resemblance, by mistaken identity, and Kohnke has a jack of $25 for anyone that can prove he was out after 11 o'clock any ot the three nights of the tournament. MRS. KOHNKE To Editors U. D. M.: In a recent editorial you propound an inquiry and pursue it at such length and •taming concern that if there be any partial answer even, it should be made. You wonder why all the giant daily papers refuse to support Roosevelt. You concede a reason for Col. Knox's Chicago News not doing so. It would be interesting to have the list not only to complete the picture, but to explain your curiosity. It Is impressive: The morning dailies of Chicago, New York, Boston, Baltimore, Washington, D. C.. St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis, and St. Paul, as also Collier's, Liberty and Saturday Evening Post. The latter three have a circulation of 5,000,000 and are not supporting F. D. R. This is the picture that should cause any concern, for I maintain that the wise men for whom you are making a search are In, their editorial chairs. I did not name the New York Times, nor the Register, for not having read it today, I am unable to state whom it supports. Surely these men are of sound mind and you say they ought to support F. D. R. You cite one reason, "increased receipts," money. Even if true, this is a poor reason, a low reason, but conceding it true, wonjd it not be strange, if having billions of money spent, largely .unwisely; yes thrown about like chicken feed, some of it did not fall into baskets. You would, I think, very properly resent my saying that the U. D. M. wan operating from a like cause. No, let us concede the big publishers and brilliant editors to be honest men, and actuated by the highest motives. But, I think these giant editors, perhaps, have some loftier, more patriotic urge for their conduct than merely an increase in receipts, if that Increase is due to ill-spent public money and staggering taxes. I wish to maintain that the wise men, for whom you are conducting a search, will be found in the editorial sanctums, and because they are wise, they have no time to spare for F. D. R. or his New Deal. They recall he carried out one of his pledges—opening the saloons, but none other. They remember he promised to cut out useless bureaus, to reduce taxes, to make employment for idle millions, to respect the civil service, to uphold the nation's charter of liberty and not one of these has he done. Hy stealth he has sought to remove some of the pillars of the constitution he pledged to defend. These editors recall with sadness and with pain that they have lived to s«e their president illegally acquire power, and then appoint Satraps like Wallace to plow under corn, that his seven dollar seed might fill up the deficiency. So, I think if you contact these editors, they will be found like Poor Hich- urd, speaking their own convictions in the home thut their own plants, u purveyor of newa, will be kept free from executive order or dictation. Having hud one tryst with that gentleman, which was broken, they ure loathe to extend him another date. WILL F. WALKER. Editor's Note—We welcome contributions from readers. Controversy is good for the soul, if not allowed to bring about actual enmity. We atill contend, however, tbat editorial writer* seldom speak their hearts, especially in political matters, and take orders a* to what to say and whom to support.
