tion. They will have little or no con-
nection with the play itself except in
creating an atmosphere of jollity and
good will.
There will even be a street parade




reception that America ever gave to
a single man, and to the &erage
American there is little in the line of
heroism that can even approach the
feat of Charles A. Lindbergh for years
to come. Scarcely has 4he enthusiasm
cooled, however, when the nation has
uncovered another hero, no less cour-
ageous and no less able to the per-
formance of hisduties: the new hero
is Charles Duke.
Perhaps the name is unfamiliar to
the larger number of our citizens, and
probably it will remain so perma-
nently, but to those of the citizenry
who appreciate heroic and worthwhile
deeds, and for those who do not look
for the sheer spectacular nature of the
event, Duke must rank at least on a
par, and perhaps somewhat above,
any of our current heroes.
It would take a brave man even to
say he was a prohibitionist or to join
the coast guard forces in New York
and vicinity, but when that bravery
exteids to capturing single handed a
steamer with $500,000 ,worth of liquor
on board, manned with more than
twenty men, and with only three car-
tridges in a gun, then it becomes even
more than bravery - it becomes
sublime inspiration. To hold, in ad-
dition, this entire crew below the
decks of the steamer for three hours
while help arrived (a notably long
time for a coast guard cutter to cross
the New York harbor) ranks in sheer
courage with any of our stpreme na-
val achievements which embellish the
pages of history.
The reward which Duke will receive
will not be great. There will be no
banquet at which the mayor of New
York can give another speech, and it
is quite possible that the mayor will7
extend his official censure for iger-
ference with the city's leading indus-
try. Judging from the management of
the New York enforcement area, where
directors are removed for their effici-
ency, we may soon find an appeal sent]
to President Coolidge to remove the
youth, and President Coolidge will not
doubt reply as he did when it came tof
removing the director of the district.
Duke need not worry, however, for1
when he is dismissed from the coast
guard service there will be dozens of
reputable bootlegging concerns bid-i
ding for his services, and they appre-t
