Hntered at the Postofflce at Mason City Iowa as Seconil Class Matter Nature has always had more force than educa JUDGES AND JURIES T HE country will shed no tears over the decision of the United States supreme court which holds that Harry F Sinclair oil magnate must spend three months in jail for contempt of a committee of the lUntted States senate which he had defied by refusing answer certain questions propounded to him in re llation to the oil scandals It is good to know that Ithere Is in the United States a place In which extreme 1 wealth does not make men immune to law Sinclair was acquitted by juries in two cases grow I ing out of the oil free bootery One may not aay he was guilty for juries have said he is not guilty but I it Is perfectly proper to point out that in opinions re I lating to civil suits based upon thesame set of facts the supreme court asserted that the whole transaction I was shot thru with fraud One of the habits of radical minded politicians is to impugn the supreme court of the United States I Efforts have been made to curtail its powers such as Jthc recent proposal that a bare majority of congress I could by merely repassing a bill declared unconstitu Itlonal by the court veto a supreme court decision But I many instances and among them one after another the cvil litigations growing out of the oil frauds have shown the supreme court of the United States to rep resent the citadel of justice It is Juries who have turned these men loose Many there are who feel that our jury system 19 doubtful value in the actual attainment of justice Awhile it rests upon a logical theory the actual record certainly pay no compliment to the ends of justice On the tie supreme court is strengthening itself acts recorded in the pages of current history Frequently the supreme court of the United States ues a decision which In the minds of the common of people seems unfair or appears to favor litigants or rich subjects of prosecution Bu fese cases almost invariably disclose the fact that the nrt followed the law And unless the law be uncon Jutional the supreme court must follow it even tho Disapproves For it is the function of the court to rpret law it is legislatures and the congress that 1ke it THE RAGGED EDGE MERICAN workers owning their homes automo biles and radios sometimes talk about living on the ragged edge Comparison

Children as a rule dont like April h c question as to the federal reserve boards right to restrict gambling a scale large enough to be des cribed as specu if the term g a m b 1 i n g grates on the ear be an im portant issue at the special ses sion of congress It happens that the speculation most talked about just now is of the class known as a p e c u 1 atlon in UNCOLNMfMCflWL stocks However it might equally well be speculation in real estate or any thing else In fact Vice Gov Ed mund Platt of the federal reserve board recently told me that he con sidered real estate speculation rather worse than the stock market kind in that fairly good stocks are still worth something even if they slump whereas the bottom sometimes drops so completely out of real estate that it cannot be sold at all The principle Is the thing in volved If the federal reserve board is en titled to put the brakes on one kind of speculation it would seem to fol low that it is entitled to do likewise with other kinds Mr Platt intimat ed that he thinks it would have been better for all concerned if such a policy had been pursued during the corn belt farm land boom directly after the war and at the time of loridas period of inflation a little ater on a special session of congress iwhich originally was expected to confine itself mainly to agricultural relief and a mere trifle of tariff fix ng this springs special session seems destined to have an extraordi nary number of additional problems to struggle with too Late developments have made it clearly possible to dodge the fed oral reserve board puzzle at any rate Moreover It promises to be a corker to solve The experts beat acquainted with it appear to find it as hard to agree on as the foremost authorities on the subject of prohibition find it to agree on that spokesman for these stock gam lers Representative Sol Bloom ikewise in the Manhattan multi millionaire class maintains that or dinary business loans and stock mar ket loans are wholly different propo sitions and should not be confused Representative James G Strong of Kansas ranking majority member of the lower house of congress bank ng and currency committee lays the trouble to the laws failure clear y to define the reserve boards func tions All of these are only a few of the conflicting judgments shows how the ablest financial doc tors opinions clash THERE is another almost unan 1 swerable How much stock market activity is legitimate o k and how much of it is gambling perhaps ought to bo sup pressed The man who buys a stock to keep and draw dividends on is an investor as much as If ho were put ting his savings at interest In a bank The man who plays margins is S gambler But there is a broad intermediate man who buya outright but expects to sell at the first good

child get its vitamins from the cream My mother is suffering from cancer of the upper p and the doctor I consulted about two months ago old me that owing to her advanced is about can do nothing to relieve her He said that this form of cancer Is the least painful but I know my mother suffers very much and she says the lumps in her lip are very sore Some friends suggested home remedies to dry them up but they do not seem to work Is cancer listed among the communicable diseases T There ig no home remedy that will dry up or have any effect on cancer in any way T except perhaps to make it worse We disagree with your doctor who says that your mother is too old to have any treatment Radium or Xray but especially the radium is very successfully used on skin cancer and there is no age limit to its use You live quite near to New York City and I ad vise you to take your mother to the New York Skin and Cancer hospital at 301 East Nineteenth street No cancer is not communicable Skin cancer Is very successfully treated now so I still have hopes for your mother unless her condition has gone on too long If you want more information on cancer write to Sous flapping of wings Was
