SUNDAY, JULY 20, 1930
All the prejudices and absurdities
of politics seem to have been
brought to the fore in the recall
election campaign in Detroit. Ad-
herents of both parties are gradu-
ally becoming less sane and more
bitter and irrational as the contest
continues. In all the welter of
charges and counter-charges, at-
tacks and defenses there seems to
be no clear issue for decision. The
voters are being influenced not by
calm reasoning and explanation
but by sentiment and emotion. In
other words, the election activities
represent the worst of machine pol-
itics in a large metropolis.
Upon what in all this affair can
the voter rely as legitimate and
trustworthy? What are the true
facts of the case? Neither question
can be answered properly. There
are too many barricades of secrecy,
too many entanglements with the
underworld, too much ponderous
governmental machinery for any
truth to leak through to the aver-
age citizen. All that is possible is to
view the contentions of the recall
party, for it is naturally on its
members that the burden of argu-
ment falls, and to attempt without
bias to discover wherein and to
what extent the mayor has failed
in the performance of his duties.
The major contention of the op-
position to the present administra-
tion seems to be that Mr. Bowles
is incompetent. This incompetency
is said to be shown in his handling
of the Emmons matter, of the D. S.
R. question, and of the Gillespie
affair. For first consideration, does
it seem likely that the mayor would
have fired from office one of his
own personal friends and a man of
recognized integrity and business
ability, unless he felt that his lack
of experience and knowledge in po-
lice work outweighed the other con-
siderations? Emmons' prolonged
trip to the coast would certainly
seem as much a neglect of his du-
ties as the much advertised "Derby
vacation" which the mayor took.
The D. S. R. question was a more
serious matter. Undoubtedly the ac-
tions taken there were hasty and
unfortunate for the most part. The
insurance coverage was too hand-
somely paid for, and Mr. Drexiliust
should not have been discharged on1
so little provocation. The elimina-1
tion of Frank Couzens, however,
may very logically and properly
have been founded in a desire toc
effect a smooth-working organiza-
tion in the street railway office.
The matter of hiring Gillespie ast
commissioner of public works was
a false move only to the extent thatt
it meant the making of a greatt
many enemies. Essentially it can bec
considered an act of courage rather1
than of bravado. Despite the posi-c
tive character of the commissioner,t
which has naturally made for himt
many enemies, he has always beenI
recognized as a man of ability and
knowledge of city affairs. He has a
better record, even considering itsa
doubtful spots, than a great many
of those attacking him in such holyr
righteousness. f
The Detroit newspapers and the
rather loud-mouthed advocates of ,
the recall, have seemingly failed to d
realize that the treading of new s

We .wonder if the citizens who

Would Ex-mayor Smith bring it to

lead them to vote for the novelty
of recall. Care should be taken that
the novelty, seasoned with emo-

is for their ballots.

Well, possibly. We'd be willing to

Chapter Three.
The midnight sun was just dip-
ping below the horizon of the vast
Antarctic wastes one afternoon
when a slow procession of ab-
original seal-spearers might have
been seen trudging through the
precarious ice floes carrying on
their backs a precious supply of
whale blubber to last through the
long, cold night which was clos-
ing down upon them with its my-
riad stars, prowling polar-bears,
and arctic foxes.
Suddenly the leader of this fan-
tastic horde raised his head, low-
ered his burden to the snowy
ground and muttered brokenly,
"Ip gk plk gezg gtzg"
Instantly the entire band drop-
ped their packs and gazed into the
north (Shouldn't this be the
south?-EDITOR. This is the ANT-
arctic, you ham.) from whence
came the low unmistakable roar
of a giant Ford trimotor.
Soon the great plane had land-
ed in a crumpled heap not five
yards from them. A door opened
from its bent side and out stepped
a radiantly beautiful lady in even-
ing gown on the elbow of a macu-
lately dressed gentleman. The na-
tives prostrated themselves before
the pair.
"Well," said Lewdia, for it was
none other than our heroine, "so
this is where you take me when you
ask if I'd care to leave the ball a
moment for a breath of fresh air.
Tell me, Mr. Glutz, what does this
"It means," said Glutz grimly,
his face a mask, "that we are lost
somewhere in the antarctic wastes
with no petrol, no food, and half
a canteen of ice-water. I wonder
if these natives can speak English."
"Well, I am famished for one,"
said Lewdia, her practical nature
reasserting itself in spite of the
dangers about her. "Ask these
men for some food."
A moment later Glutz shook his
head dispairingly. It's no use," he
despaired. "I've tried everything-
Portugese, Chinese provincial, It-
alian, French, and hottentot clicks.
I guess we starve."
Suddenly Lewdia was inspired.
Taking the leader of the band by
the hand, she placed her hand on
her stomach and said, "Yum, yum,
"Lewdia," gasped Glutz; "do you
realize what this may mean."
"Never mind," she answered

fearlessly without shifting her
gaze from the stupid face of the
native. Slowly across the dull fea-
tures, a light of comprehension
broke. Stooping to the pack of
blubber at his feet, he broke off a
chunk of the frozen fat and hand-
ed it to the girl. Lewdia took it
and smiled a remercie. Then she
glanced at the food in her hand
and her face blanched white.
"My God," she cried, "Fat! and
me on a diet!"

A challenge
to the imagination

To provide telephone service of na-
tional scope, to manage and develop
properties valued at more than three and
three-quarter billion dollars, to maintain an
organization of more than 400,000 people
at highest efficiency - such work spurs
the creative thought of men of the high-
est calibre.
Within the Bell System many have
achieved outstanding success. Their work

is not only in pure science and engineering,
but in organization and management, in
salesmanship, financial administration, eco-
nomics and the many other fields vital to
the growth of so great an enterprise.
Because of these men the Bell System is
able to furnish the best all-around telephone
service in the world. A progressive policy
puts at their disposal every aid that a great
organization can give.

And so, as the two of them
crawled into their sleeping bags
that night in the little canvas
tent with the arctic owls scudding
,overhead in the great Darkn*ss,
far away around the globe 5000
miles or so, Maraschino Glamp was
just tucking herself under silken

ta nation-wide system of inter-conhnecting telephons
