r Harvard college, now setting a
foolish example in race prejudice,
once took great pride in its devo-
tion to the Hebrew language.
Marian Storm tells you that for-
merly commencement orations
were made in that tongue. Our
ancient friends of the Cotton
Mather type considered Hebrew
the tongue of tongues. Centuries
back our Christian ancestors all
took it for granted that Hebrew
was the first language, original*
and only language, used by Je-
hovah, speaking to Adam and by
the snake, luring Eve.
England is the land of conservat-
ism. A while ago Northcllffe was
telling his friends how long he had
worked to add the Times to his pos-
sessions and what he intended to do |
He is in his grave, the Times goes
back to its former owners, and will
"support the government with in-
dependence," which is like saying,
"I will carry your valise, but com-
plain, if I find it heavy."

George Harvey, ambassador and
a wag, says that according to the
Bible, Koran and Talmud, women
have no souls and the Ten Com-
mandments were written for men
only. He thinks that one or more
commandments are needed especi-
ally for women.
Some of theiu, judging by recent
shootings, might suggest "thou
shalt not covet thy neightbor's hus-
Harvey should realize that the
Ten Commandments apply almost
exclusively to men, not because
women have no souls, but because
men are naturally inclined to break
the commandments and need them.
If there were no men, no Ten Com-
mandments would be necessary.

lleiny claiming that they were
qualified voters and claiming that
they had been denied the right to
register. When lleiny refused fed-
eral prohibition officers attempted
to force the registration. This re-
sulted in the arrest of one of the
prohibition officers for interfering
I with the duty of another officer. He
was released on bond.
I Every precinct had a registrar
land was kept in supplies Heiny
said. The Constitutional Democrat-
ic < lub sent men around to attempt
to get men registered and to "col*
I lect evidence of the disfranchise-
ment of qualified voters."
! lleiny issued a statement laying
the blame for a lot of the confu-
sion at the feet of Cue republican
deputy sheriffs and Constitutional
| Democrats, lleiny said, "There is
a : ood reason for there not being
a number of people w ho are willing
to erve i > istrars. if they do
and carry out their duty, they will
l>e Indicted and if they don't they
ire liable to be indicted. They are
| in a hole any way they go.
"The registrars are forced to sub-
11nit to the humiliation of having a
bulldozing deputy sheriff around
j and to being harassed by men who
I have no business around the regis-
tration booth. They also have the
newspapers giving them a lot of un-
pleasant publicity because they aro
appointed by me. There is no won-
der that no one wants to serve as
registrar and there is no wonder
i hut there j a lot of confusion dut*
m; 'he registration period. It
would not be if people who have no
business in the registration booths
were kept away and if the payers
would give us a square deal.
