Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - March 22, 1936, Racine, Wisconsin What our readers have to say. Isi win be paid for l any comment lied i to this column j i sunday journal times bulletin vol. 5-\o. 49. Racine wis., sunday March 22, 1936. Circulation Over 21,000 j pleads for drive against speeders dear editor i believe its about time that our local City officials take real drastic measures to curb the great number of automobile fatalities that w e be had Here the past 14 months whose fault is it Well some it it is the fault of human nature no doubt. No Law can keep a silly fool or incompetent ass from feeling like a big shot behind a steering wheel. May be a Mug in business a dub at Golf and a worm when his wife cracks the whip let Home but put him behind the wheel of his car and he feels like a Man and so he drives j like he just to show off. forgets i that it Isnit himself who really i the big shot but rather the engineers who designed the perfect working piece of machinery he is using. The average up to Date automobile can travel almost a Hundred Miles an hour but How Many Ordinary Drivers of today have brains enough to think that fast nine times out of ten these speeders Are to no parti ular hurry to get where they Are going but they Are just infected with a vicious blood lust for Speed. They might kill themselves or somebody else to save three minutes but usually they have nothing to do with them when they do save them. And then Don t forget it usually takes two or More to make an Accident. The worlds Best Driver does t know what Lunatic May be deciding to beat a traffic Light Back out of a driveway at 50 Miles an hour or try to pass you at the top of a Hill or curve and then meet a car coming the other Way. And when he realizes it there s in t much of anything to do except Call for the ambulance and the wrecking car. Again i say i believe ifs High time to Hammer Home Aud enforce the lesson of safety to cure this lust for Speed. It can be done i believe. By sending reckless Drivers to jail. By punishing hit and run murderers to the limit of the Law by forbidding the use of the roads to drunks by taking licenses away from Young fools until they Are old enough to be trusted with machinery. And last but not least i would also suggest that these dumb pedestrians who a Jay walk Quot across some of our busiest intersections be prosecuted too. To the fullest extent of the Law. J. B. P., main St Cults word rites persist Racine county jail Kitchen among Best in Wisconsin Praise for abolition of a jumped Quot stories dear editor your newly adopted idea of presenting articles in the Dally a Jour Nal times in a Complete form on one Page rather than having them continued or concluded on certain other pages of the edition is an excellent one it makes for improved Reader interest and is a great step towards family peace As Well. Continued articles always i believe detract from ones interest to some extent and often times results in an article not being read through to completion sometimes leaving an erroneous impression with the Reader. It is particularly disturbing when one member of the family begins Reading an article say on the front Page Only to find that it is concluded in a Section of the paper which another member of the family happens at the moment to be steeped in. Readers in general i am sure will Welcome your presentation of the news in this new manner. C. F., Olive St ranked second for 1935 by state Board of control.

Balthazor of the Central fire station who helps Man the switchboard Over which come the Calls which Send apparatus to fires is thinking of starting a class in elocution. Not by Way of making better politicians he explains but so that residents can give the department the location of fires. Much confusion is caused by an excited person who rushes to a phone and shouts to the operator to Send the fire engine quickly. In his hurry he May forget to give the location. Others Are so unnerved by the danger of loss through fire that they can scarcely talk while others stutter and mumble. Confusion is caused also by similarity of names of Many streets. Time element important. A thirty seconds taken at the outset of a fire to give the fire department operator the exact location will save hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars in ultimate loss a explained Lieut. Balthazor. A this Call which just came in was sent by a woman who took her time and there will be no confusion. A a few Days ago a Man living on Hagerer Street called for the department and was so excited we sent the apparatus to an address on Frederick Street. Neighbors telephoned to ask what the trouble was. In doing so they gave us the required information As to location and we got there As quickly As possible. Delays Are costly and they Are bound to occur if we do not know exactly where to go in the Case of an names cause confusion. Lieut. Balthazor says there Are so Many streets Here with similar names that the Chance of making a mistake is increased. There Are the North and South streets which should be plainly designated then there Are Frank Avenue and Franklin Street Blake and Lake avenues Grange and grand avenues Hamilton Avenue and Hamilton Street just to cite a few of them.

By Hubert Johnson through the recent reappearance of the a Leopard men in Africa and through the recent murder in the Southwest which falsely was attributed to the Penitente cult attention has been called to the fact that barbarous forms of religion Are still practice. Any Man who seeks to learn the secrets of the penitents takes his life in his hands according to a belief popular in the area. The recent murder of Carl Taylor 33, Magazine writer seems to substantiate this belief a manuscript telling of the terrible rites of self torturers was found on the desk of the victim. However this theory was exploded when a 16-year-old boy who had been working for the slain Man admitted he shot and killed the writer with robbery As his motive. Imported into Mexico by Flage Lant Cults of seventeenth Century Spain tile cult has practice its strange religious ceremonies for centuries in the mountains of new Mexico Colorado Utah and Arizona. The cult it is said sprung into being shortly after the spaniards first came to the Southwest. In Spanish it is known As a los Hermanos de Penitente a a the penitent rites still severe. Some of the Early penitents were cantle thieves who had a lot on their consciences and thought joining such a strenuous cult would insure their future lives. The penitents practice whipping in the most brutal form time has not made the rites less severe. The rites reach their height during holy week each year when the cultists re enact the crucifixion of Christ with such realism that at times it is believed participants have died. On Good Friday night the cult assembles at the a Smorada a or Temple. Guards Are posted to keep non members away. Certain prayers Are said and confessions Are made. The members prostrate themselves before a crude altar. They cry that Christ suffered and was crucified for them that he Rose to heaven and that they will follow his example that they May do likewise. Bloody whipping. Then they form a procession with one member chosen to enact the part of Christ. The penitent who is to be placed on the Cross takes his place at the head of the procession and bears a heavy Cross on his shoulder. All those doing penance Are stripped to the Waist and All carry whips made from Cactus fiber. As the column moves toward the spot where the ceremony is to take place the whippers beat themselves with the Cactus fiber. The skin is broken and blood Marks the course of the procession. When the self torturer becomes weak another penitent beats him. As they reach the Cross the penitents reach a High pitch of frenzy. Some will Roll naked in Cactus calling upon the saints to witness the Devotion of the Saviour. Others will Gash their foreheads and shoulders against Sharp rocks. Some will tie clumps of thorny Cactus upon their shoulders. Claim nails used. At the crucifixion the chosen Man is lashed to the Cross with ropes some persons declare that the Cults in the Mountain retreats still use nails. When a a Christ is fastened to the Cross the penitents form a Circle around the base of the Cross and beat themselves with lashes. To the tune of a weird chant the chief places a Cactus Crown upon the head of the crucified person. The self punishment lasts until Dawn when the Man is Cut Down from the Cross sometimes near death. Only men Are admitted to the strange group but women often follow the processions and subject themselves to self tortures which exceed those of the men for brutality. Most of the penitents Are marijuana smokers it is declared. Priests fight cult.
