Tight against the discomforts of that

Warner actress, Dolores Costello,
whose hair is arranged in the style
that was popalar from a bout-,1000 to
1012. It was getting perceptibly
shorter, had lout the severe dignity of
the earlier coiffeur and was frizzled
and curled unmercifully.
Patsy Ruth Miller shows still a
further advance. Her hair is piled
higher on her head, closer to the ears
and altogether gives the head a small
er. trimmer look. This style of hair
dress was worn, in variations, between
1912 and 1018.

Dorothy Devore, a Warner Bros, play
er, shows how extreme this l.rjo
mode is. The hair is brushed off the
ears and combed straight-back, with
nary a tiny curl or a wayward wave.
That is what 1920 brings in hair
fashions for women, and leaves many
in a double mind as to their choice
between the bob that Miss Prevost
wears and the way that Miss Devore
wears her hair.
Apropos of the simple, charming
bob that Miss Prevost years in pri
vate life, that very same bob also fur
nishes the ipvot theme of her latest
vehicle, “Bobbed Hair.” which War

question that stares Marie Prevost in
the face and pursues her with night
mares. because that fascinating little
minx realizes —remember this takes
place in “Bobbed Hair” and is not a
secret of the film star’s life—that on
the click of the shears rests her decis
ion between two suitors.
One suitor. John Roche, wishes Miss
Prevost’s hair to remain long, while
the other. Reed Howes, is determined
that his future wife will be bobbed.
One can easily imagine the grave
nature of such a problem. To bob or
not to bob! It made all their lives
miserable, untill Miss Prevost gets
caught in a series of irresistibly funny
adventures and finds that the question
One can only conclude, observing
the different steps in the evolution of

A. L. Brooks, of Greensboro and
also of counsel for the defendant ob
jects to newspaper criticism of the
verdict in the Cole ease which he
says., was correct. Air. Brooks could
hardly say anything else, without stul
tifying h'mself. He says that the edi
tors themselves would be the first to
howl if it were proposed to abolish
the jury system.
Admitted, Mr.. Brooks. The jury
system is the best means the present
civilization has bit upon for admin
istering justice. The peojile and their
press would much prefer a jury to
leaving all questions to the ’awyers
and judges. But few expect perfec
tion from a jury. Perfection cannot
be obtained even from those versed in
the law and sworn to thei service of
the blind goddess.
Mr. Brooks acquitted himself in the
Cole case so as to add to his reputa
tion and earn his wages. The jury ac
cepted his view of case rather than
that of the press. AVe think he ought
to let the matter.rest where it is. Any
how, he should not object to the ex
pression of unpaid-for opinion by
those whose duty it is occasionally to
analyze the argument of counsel or
even the verdicts of the jury.

North Carolina Methodism, like the

Methodism is doing pretty well as it

It is Methodist business, and yet
■ there is widespread interest in the re
sult outside of the fold. It will be
hailed by Americans who are strong
on unity, if more or less weak on
church ties, as a victory for Ameri
canism. It is possible, even probable,
that it will do away with some over

especially in sections where it is dif

“When Everybody Goes a-Prayin’.”
Germany, when she began the
World War said “Gott itiit uns.”
She got licked.
The Allies fought the Huns for
God and '.nimanity.
They believe they won.
W. B. Cole asked God if he should
kill W. W. Ormond.
Ormond was killed.
Ormond’s family prayed that his
slayer might be punished.
Their prayer was unanswered.
The jury prayed for divine guidance
in their decision.
The slayer goes unpunished.
It has been my observation tfiat
when everybody goes a-praying and
dealing in mushy sentimentality the
defendant always goes scott free.
Yes, Air. Cole had a lot of smart
lawyers—and a praying jury.
But let’s see. Is Mr. Cole free?
AVilll he not be haunted by the
ghost of the mail he has slain ever
by his side?
And that presence nearer and more
obiquitously persistent as the years
come and go?
Will Mr. Cole not see Bill Ormond
at every turn?
Will his sleep be\undisturbed even
if he did kill the young man?
If not, then W. B. Cole did not
murder Bill Ormond.

This ease presents all the intriea-
I eies of the most subtile and oblique
emotions which lie deep in the

Feminine emotions have run to
' the conclusion that Elizabeth Cole
had gone beyond the dead line in
' her relations with Ormond. Their
1 feeling in the case arises entirely
out of this. They think she deceived
her father and they feel, though they
may not feel it consciously, that she
must be branded. But there is x no
way to reach her. Therefore they

Had there been no alleged in

against him, for then they would
have seen a man suffering and a

with Cole? Because they see him,
not as a man who shot from the

' down a Judas Iscariot. There rums a
little rhyme about the man who

- as a man who egregiously lied about
a young woman or one who accepted
• the deeiiest confidences of her life
and betrayed them. And to man
nature, the latter is wdrse than the
first. Therefore, the attitude of the
■ men arises out of the fact that they
: are passing sentence upon Ormond,
i uot Cole. They are as unconscious,

Os course, in this ahalysi-% there

woman, and othing derogatory to
either sex. It is just a statement of
the way our feelings seem to control

Income Tax Sidelights.
President Coolidge has not taken ad
vantage of the provision in the present
tax law which entitles him to collect
frera the government most of the $14,-
000 income tax which he paid on last
year’s salary. His $75,000 a year is
now exempt from assessment. The
supreme court several months ago held
that the constitution prevented the
salary of the executive and federal
judges from being diminished in any
manner while they are in office. The
presidents, vice-presidents and the fed
eral judges had been paying income
taxes since 1919. Therefore, tech
nically, Mr. Coolidge can recover mon
ey paid out in past income taxes.

a Cleveland real estate operator, was

Bootleggers, knowing that their in

government as private and cannot be
used against them, are claiming some
strange exemptions. A certain New
York man asked for deduction of
losses met through the activities of
“hijackers,” thieves who prey on boot

gers” paid $1,000,000 to the govern
ment in taxes.
The board of tax appeals support
a previous ruling by the internal rev
