Mr. Wilcox in a telegram to
Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen Wednes-
day, asked that their proposed
joint debate on the prohibition
question be carried out. Wilcox
opposes Mrs. Owen for re-election I
to congress in the fourth district.

George F". McCall, clerk of the
Criminal court is a candidate for
re-election, subject to the Demo-
cratic primary in June. Mr. Mc-
Call will complete a short term in
this office in January and, if re-
elected, his term this time will be
ifor four years. He was appoint-
ed to the office to fill an unex-
pired teremee by aoero e r~n

ity two years ago.
Mr. McCall's office is charged
with keeping the dockets and rec-
ods of f sr curts, andouwhdn h

there was no adequate and infor-
mative record of cases pending in
these courts. He established a
system which has proved to be en-
tirely satisfactory to the legal1
profession and to litigants.
Mr. McCall has the distinction
of being the only clerk of the
Criminal court to turn back to the
county any money during his term
of office. The office is on a fee
basis, and collects a smaller
amount than any other fee office
in the county. The law requires
that the office, shall be self-sus-
taining, and that any monies re-
maining after expenses have been
paid, must be turned over to the
)county's general fund. Mr. Mc-
Call in two and a half years has
turned over to the county commis-
sioners $7,649.43 In the last six
months of 1929 he paid the county
$2,196.53. In 1930 the amount

With the slogan "Two Good

for re-election to the Florida leg-
elature on the basis of his past
record. Educated in Lake Forest,

UJniversity of Freiburg, Baden,
Germany, and at the Sorbonne,
France, and his legal training st
Harvard University, he was ad-
mitted to practice in Massachu-

1915; since which time he has been
practicing here. During the World
Wi~ar he served in the French army
and was demobilized because of his
wounds. He re-enlisted in the

wTch erinople and think how he
hd ro med away his own life.
Still, he was not so very old-
nt quite in the prime, and a
noeatq but sad part of life lay
rtl before him.
"Often he would go to he Jyna-

soh hlieaspeciae e, wthh he le d
paying, the picturesque re I g
about him, he wou Id sit and dreamn
about his past life. A feeling o
sadness would come over him, as
he thought of thehigreat Synago-
igue at Vienna, whc he h a-
tended as a child, and where his
father had been looked upon as a
great man, a prmece in Israel. One
Sabbath eve he came into the
Synagogue, and without being
aware of it, sat down in a pew that
belonged to another. In just a
few minutes the bench was crowd-
ed with people. He wanted to get
up and go to the back of the Syna-
gogue, but somehow he didn't, be-
cause his attention was caught by
the person who sat next to him
-a young lady in a blue dress.
But it wasn't her face that held
his attention. It was a rent in
the sleeve of her garment. A
torn dress in the Synagogue on
the Sabbath Eve! Somehow it
struck him as amusing. He looked
at the other occupants of the
bench---one family, he thought.
They looked prosperous. Mother
and father; three other men and
two young ladies--a typical, av-
erage Yiddish family, he thought
again. How contented they looked; /
how happy!
"The next Friday he came again
to the Synagogue, taking his place
in the pew. This time the fam-
ily came again, and now he knew
that it was their bench, but he
made no effort to move. The mem-
bers of the family recognized him
as the man they had seen the pre-
vious week. The head of the fam-
ily, the father, introduced himself
with typical Jewish friendliness.
In the House of God no one must
be a stranger. They invited him
to their house. And on Sunday he
went. The whole family seemed
to take an instant liking to him
--on account of the daughter, he
told himself; but he was not im-
pervious to her charms. And
when he looked into the mirror he '
would see a face that was still '
handsome, still striking in its de-
clining years. He was still tall
and broad of shoulder, and he

maybe not that many. The bitter-
ness and the despair against the
world was gone from him. He
had something to live for--some-
thing that gave him a thrill of joy.
"One night he proposed to her,

past, of the great disappoint-
ment. She listened quietly and
then raised her lips to his and
confessed that she loved him.
Neither of them was so very

(sincere or otherwise)) has the

Co ne ab was talking wte s n
ple in the newspapers.
He said: "When a man gets to
be about 45 years old he discovers
the obituary page."
I certainly am not a gloomy
minded person, but I have always
thought more or less about death.
The attitude of a large portion of
the human race toward it seems
to me infantile and silly.
It isn't a pleasant subject but
certainly it is an inevitable one.
Why dodge and pretend and act
like children ? said Caesar:
"Of all the wonders that I yet
have heard,
It seems to me most strange that
men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary
Will come when it will come."
All of which leads me to remark
that there is a certain advantage
in discovering the obituary page
comparatively early in life. The
tragedy is that some men never
discover it.
I have seen a doddering old mil-
lionaire, with one foot in the
grave, fighting with a taxi-man
over a nickel, or trying to beat
down the price of a neck tie.
I once sought a contribution tol
charity from a millionaire who was
w~ell over 60 and notoriously tight.
He told all the reasons why he a
wouldn't give up a cent, and as he lI
warmed up to the subject he be. e
gan to act as if my call were an
nsult. s
Finally I said: "Why are you
;o mean? WVhy do you deny your- i
;elf pleasures and squeeze every
ickiel ? It isn't your money; it's c
,our children's money, or will be T:
n a few years. Why let them b
iave all the pleasures ? Why not p
~ave the fun of giving some of It je
way ?"
This rude remark shocked him. w
think it started a line of thought tl
hat made quite a change in his
fe. tl
Mloses prayed: "So teach us to "
umber our days that we may ap- fG
ly our hearts unto wisdom."
I assume that to mean that, st
hen we get along toward middle b'
fe and note by the papers that
en of our o age, or a fewa
ears older, are dropping off, we o'
ught to stop and take stock.
We ought to say: "As life goes s
have maybel0, 15 or at the most br
years. Therefore, I ought to di'

g-How can I be sure to do all
e things Iwant to do, see all the ti~
aces I want to see, and leave be- in"
nd me a reputation for having

r individual?"
It would help if the papers th'
,uld print at the top of the obit- NSi
ry page every day this quotation os
