Every death of this kind is a senseless, useless waste of life fei* no good purpose. It is not enough to s.ay that fatal acci dents are the fault of careless drivers; the situation calls for some way of insur ing against carelessnes.s in driving. The best insurance of this i.s requiring 'every one who drives a car to be licensed, after a rigid examination into his or her ability jto drive carefully, and then to enforce HOW DID-YOU FIGHT? *V ' The Cabinet - Early announcement of the cabinet of Mr-Utrictly the laws forbidding any unlicen.s- Roosevelt, necessitated by the exigencies of g^j driver to sit behind a steering wheel copy of this ol^ whose author is unknown, was ,,, fufiiished by Mr. Dudley^ Hill, assistant cashier of the DepoiUt & Bavings Bank.

Mr. Roose velt has surrounded himself with a cabinet which compares favorably v\dth the best in recent times. Mr. Roosevelt has chosen men who will work with and co-operate with him and whose views are closely in line with those he holds. It is interesting to note that at least two members of the cabinet have long been af filiated with the Republican party. Both are of the liberal tjT)e who supported Mr. Roose velt in his campaign for the Pi’esidency. Pi-esident Hoover had one Democrat in his cabinet—Attorney General Mitchell. What The Church Expects Of Its Pastor Twenty-six suggestion? were offered when the congregation of the First Bap tist church here was asked to mention some of the things which a church ex pects of its pastoi The list is interesting. It furnishes a basis upon which a minister might well conduct his activities. None of the suggestions was more wise ly made than, “One who practices what he preaches.” A minister should always hold up the Great Teacher of Gallilee as an example. It then becomes his duty to live as closely as possible to the Master and emulate His teachings in every walk of life. The church expects its members to life what they profess. That is the need of the church today. Members of th(- church pro fess a faith in Christ, a hope of Life Etern al. To be a good member, it is thus neces sary to reflect in one’s conduct the teachings of the Messiah. We are always walking on firm ground when we follow in the footsteps of the Man of Gallilee. The pastor and the con gregation of any church will develop spiritually when the love of the Master is paramount in their hearts and when they resolve to practice the Golden Rule. and punishing the licensed driver for any accident which causes injury to persons or property. In the half dozen states in which such laws and regulations exist the proportion of automobile accidents is low er than anywhere else. Automobile drivers are not always at fault. While 44 percent of the persons killed by automobiles last year were pe destrians who were struck by car.s. nearly half of those were killed by their own carelessness, either in crossing. streets against signals, crossing diagonally be tween street intersections, or stepping out into traffic from behind parked cars. No sane person would thi’ik of letting a boy or a girl handle firearms without making sure that they thoroughly under stood the danger inherent in their use and knew perfectly wmll how to handle them. But people who shudder at the idea of giving children firearms to play with them run automobiles without any evi dence that they have the necessary skill and presence of mind and intelligence to handle them safely. Ten times as many people are killed every year by automo bile accidents as are killed by the acci dental discharge of firearms. We have not yet learned how to control the motor car. And though you be done to the death, what then? If you battled the best you could, " ' And played your part in the world of men, Why the critic will call it good. » • Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce, But whether he’s slow or spry. It isn’t the fact that you’re dead that counts, But only—how did you die? IN LITTLE OLD NEW YORK BANKERS FIX DATES FOR ANNUAL SESSION In the offices of the Radio City i Music Hall are included the llv- ] ing quarters of its director. They represent a n expenditure o f $250,000. Among the furnish ings are three solid silver table services.

New Judge Flay* Liquor In his charge to the jury at Asheville last week, Judge Felix K Alley, recently ^point ed to the Superior court bench, took no cog nizance of the rising tide of -eentiment to ward repeal of the prohibition laws. Instead he uttered a severe castigation of the evil* of liquor and denounced it in no uncertatin terms. Said he: “Liquor is the great withering curse of the human race. It is an everpresent evil and is perhaps more far reaching in its conse quences, to those v.’ho become its slaves, than .any other evil. Boxing bouts with women as contestants may be seen in New York in certain dance halls. The life of a dollar bill in most cities is about nine months. In New York It Is said to be about seven months.

It is logical that the policy adopted by the Hudson coun ty physicians offers a protection to the pub lic. The editorial follows: “As a means of combatting irregular prac titioners, the Hudson County Medical So ciety of New Jersey is conducting a news paper advertising campaign* It has an en rollment of 450 physicians of good reputa tion who are fully qualified to practice, all of whom are listed in the advertisement. “The organization has adopted a sensible' method of protecting the profession and the public from quacks and imposters. Persons in need of a physician'know through this advertising who, in Hudson county, are qualified, recognized doctors. As readers of the newspapers become familiar with the list, fewer costly and disastrous errors in the selection of medical advisors will be made. “No ethical objection to this character of advertising can be made. It follows the rule which the Illinois Supreme court outlined for the legal profession of tnis state. The Evidently in tinea of depres sion New Yorkers go to the zoo.
