What Has The Constitution
To Say, Is Our Appeal
America celebrates this week the
150th anniversary of the Constitution and
should bring out some clarifying thoughts
on the relation that document bears to the
people to whom it is supposed to bring
their rights, duties and privileges.
Recent controversy should tend to
show the difference between the people
giving their devotions over to a person or
persons, rather than loyalty to a body of
truth, as the Constitution is.
The one may lead to overthrow of
popular government, while the other
holds its subjects to the doctrine of "what
says the Constitution?"
In the days of inspired writings, the
cry was "to the law and the testimony"
rather than to men. Followers of men ra-'
ther than following those documents creat-
ed for the people, when sudi leadership
would take his election as a mandate from
the people to scrap the fundamental doc-
trines on which the Nation has been run,
has been the ruination of some countries
now in existence. Liberties vouchsafed in
this country are all discarded by such mad
leaders. They have their emissaries in thi3
country and are spreading their doctrines
with all avidity in the hope that some day
they shall get a strangle hold here.
It is well we have this periodical call
back to the constitution of the United
Personalties are intermixed with our
documents—there is no escaping that. But
we must not come to the point where we
are blind followers of men who would
scrap the precious document or mutilate it.
America is not a nation of hero wor-
shippers and must never bie. They should
worship at only one shrine, and that is the
shrine of truth that makes men free and
equal. We do not worship the constitu-
tion, nor is it a document inspired by the
divine hand, but loyalty to its body of
truth is better for all of us than blind fol-
lowing of any man.

INTERESTING BITS ABOUT
Down in a certain junior church
school in North Texas they tell of the pres-
ident of the school taking perfectly good
doors from the college building, or re-
moving ceiling from school buildings and
making a cow shed for his own private
property. Which explains why the school
is declared to be so badly in debt.
More bull has been added to the
show down at Dallas. This time a real
live one. Talking about bull and Dallas,
it seems to get things done. They stay to-
gether and get things over and that is
what it takes in any town. A Denison
man remarked the other day, he thought
they ought to put a uniform on some of the
chief bullers for Dallas, so much and so
well they did their job.
Over at Iloney Grove the oth-
er day we ran across an old Deni-
son boy who worked in the print-
ing business here back in the ad
alley of a daily, paper back in
1911, Harry Thompson. Harry,
who is one of the best men in the
mechanical department in this sec-
tion has been in Honey Grove
for several years and is anchored
in the Sunday school and church
work, being superintendent of
the school for the First Christian
church and sings in the choir.
Harry, who asked about Denison,
was particularly interested in,
what Fred Bulloch was doing. He
■knew Fred so well that he call-
ed his wife by, her first name
"Dixie"' Learning that Fred
was broadcasting here, he said he
was going to write Dixie to pull
the stunt on him that Judy Ca-j
nova did on Ed Bergan over his
Charily McCarthy. Fred uses a j
dummy in his ventriloquist work
and has christened him Chester
Oaks. Mr. Thompson while living
in Denison was a member of a
quartet of which Fred was also
a member. He s' ated that he has
sung for many occasions while liv-
ing in Denison and always had a
tender spot in his heart for the
city and its folks.

| garner for president
Senator Burke of Nebraska
thinks Vice President John Garn-
er of Texas would be a good
choice for the Democratci party
to make as it goes to nominate
a candidate for the presidency
Well, why not?
Garner was the choice of mil-
lions in 1932 for that same post
and he was still deemed, after
being defeated for the chief po-
sition, of such stature as to mer
being viec-president, a post he
has filled efficiently and states-
manlike, reflecting greater credit
upon himself and Texas.
Burke particularly likes Garn-
er's "qualities of hard common
sense." That's what it takes
nowadays to combat the economic
hocus pocus boys of the millen ■
I It is also true that Garner has
inherited some of the Roosevelt-
ian philosophy, although he al-
ready had a great deal of it,
and wouM be better equipped in
1940 than he was in 1932 to
achieve "the greatest good for
the greatest number."
I Garner would be a happy
choice, as a successor to the cur-
rent benefactor.—Greenville Ban-
right you are, brother
John Garner is being favorably
mentioned as the next Democrat-
ic nominee for president. We
doubt if John has any intention
of pushing the movement, and we
doubt more that he would have
any chance to win were lie to do
so. The Southern Democrats are
going to have a slim chance for
'any favors from the next Demo-
cratic convention. They surren-
dered their advantage when they
submitted to Roosevelt's plan to
change the two-thirds rule to ma-
jority rule. The Eastern and
Northern members to the party
l(who are strictly Eastern and
Northern interest supporters)
will control the next convention.
They are not at all likely to select j
a Southern man for standarl •

Gerard Montieth, a man of great
Wealth, about 50, is found dead in
the hammock on a porch off his li-
brary. Harlan Stevenson, a for-
mer detective and now author of
poany crime mystery novels, well
acquainted with Montieth and his
niece, Mary, knows that Mary was
threatened to be left penniless un-
less she married David Forrest, a
eighbor who is a brother-in-law of
tevenson. It is discovered that a
silver rood hanging on the wall of
Montieth's library contains a hid-
den blade and that it is freshly
What I had heard and seen, al-
ready, made me terribly depressed.
When I got to the library Fox-
fcroft was talking with Sergeant
'.Harper. The fingerprint man was
working on the silver rood.
Coroner Evarts and Doctor Sut-
iton were out on the porch talking
David drove up soon after this.

"What does she say—what does
she think? I mean, has she any
ideas about it?"
"How could she?" I asked, eva-
' "That's right, of course."
, Dave's rather grim and worried
expression left him. He seemed to
)>e greatly relieved. He asked about
the details. I told him everything
except about the silver.rood. I for-
got that his father might tell him
about that. I evaded that by say-
ing, "There was no weapon on the

and wash it, than to leave it for
Identification—I read that in one of
your mystery stories, Harley."
"Well, it's true enough."
My father-in-law came out to us
"We will be going back. Nothing
f can do. The women will be
anxious," he said. Dave turned to-
ward the car.
"Not a word about the silver rood
to a soul," I whispered.
My father-in-law nodded. He was,
I knew, a man of his word.
"Tell Sally that I don't know
when I will be back, they have asked
pie to work on this casp," I said.
"Even if you get the makings of
pne of your crime mysteries out of

I didn't commit myself. They
tdrove down the '/inding driveway
and I went back to the library.
• "How about fingerprints ?" I
"Not a sign," the man said, gath-
ering up his dusting powder, micro-
scope and what-not.

that I had been asked to work on the
