HOW LONG WILL WE HOLD THE COASTAL?
We are in receipt of a blue print showing the
Atlantic Coastal Highway as it will appear on the
new maps being published by the Association thi
While the State has taken Route 40 and the
Federal Highway from us, it was too late to do
anything about the Coastal Highway this year.
The road will show on the new maps a straight
shoot from Pleasant Hill to Roanoke Rapids,
which is what the State maps should have shown
in the past.
Our enemies in Raleigh saw to it that a great
curve, all oul of proportion with the scale of the
map, designated what was formerly Route 40
The Coastal Highway Association says it
will stick by us and continue to route traffic this
way. Time will tell. Markers will be put up for
the Coastal Highway this year, but as we know
from past experience, markers can be changed
OUR FAILING JUDICIARY
One of the leading lawyers of the State, who
has given much thought and study to the evident
break-down in the judicial system of the coun
try, comes forth with two plans which he feels
would aid in elevating our courts to the high
plane once held by them and to the level of res
pect and efficiency now shown by English courts.
In a conversation with the editor along these
lines this attorney stated that the present laws
of our land are all in favor of the defendant. He
believes our iaw fundamentally correct in assum
ing the defendant innocent until proven guilty,
hut he feels the State is not given a fair chance
to prove that guilt.
His suggestions are: 1. The defendant should
he made to testify. 2. The past criminal record
of the defendant shouuld be held competent evi
The two propositions are interlocking to a
certain extent. As is well known, a defendant is
not compelled to testify. Should he have a past re
cord, the chances are a thousand to one he won’t
testify, and if he does go on the stand, the State
is helpless to show the jury and judge what man
ner of man is being tried.
In short, the most hardened criminal with a
court and prison record a mile long, goes on the
stand with the same status and protection as the
man who has erred only once or who may be in
nocent of any wrong doing.
The above were only two of several sugges
tions made both for and against the defendant
The important fact is that lawyers and judges the
country over realise the inadequacy of our pres
ent court s'"stem and are in favor of adjusting
and simplifying our penal codes. Disregard and
contempt of the law is increasing every day.

I; appears that the Senate committee ap
pointed to investigate campaign expenses of sena
torial candidates has plenty of work to do this
year, with Illinois and Pennsylvania holding the
limelight as in recent former years.
In her campaign for the Republican nomina
tion in Illinois Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCormick has
reported expenses amounting to $252,527. The
Pennsylvania contest between Joseph Grundy
and James J. Davis, was even more so attend
ed by large expenditures. All this in the face of
the fact that Smith of Ilinois and Vare of Penn
svvania were denied seats because of what the
Senate considered a too free use of money in their
Smith spent $458,7S2 and Vare spent $780,
000 but neither approached the primary expen
diture of $1,804,979 by Pepper of Pennsylvania,
who failed to even get the nomination. It will be
recalled that Newberry of Michigan resigned from
the Senate some years ago after being censured
for spending $195,000 to gain his seat.
But Mrs. McCormicks outlay is by no means
finished. She must now make her campaign for
election in November, her Democratic opponent
being former Senator James Hamilton Lewis.
It has r.ot been charged, so far, that Mrs.
McCormick made any really improper use of mon
ey during her campaign. The action of the inves
tigating committeee will probably hinge upon the
size and reasonableness of the expenditure, rather
than upon the method of making it. That there
will be plenty of criticism there is no doubt.
ANOTHER NOBLE EXPERIMENT
The problem of how best to treat criminals i.
yet a problem Years ago, criminals were treated
worse than animals. History is filled with hor
rible tales of terrible punishments meted out tr
those in prison. The reaction came and in recent
years, there has been much concerted effort tf
treat criminals more humanely.
Otto Wood is a notorious criminal who hac
thrice escaped from State prison. He gave hit
word that he would be good, was taken from soli
tary confinement by Governor Gardner, made :
trusty. Last week he broke his word and escape:
again. The noble experiment had failed.
There is no criticism of the Governor, lit
was simply experimenting with dangerous 'iivio
dients. There has been much babying and cod
dling of crminals during the past decade. T:,ore
