Published every Thursday. :  THURSDAY, MARCH 20, 1941 i i i Sunday in Theodore Roosevelt had a theory that the way o get a bad law re- Delaware pealed was to enforce it. James Morford, Attorney General of Delaware, has been acting on that assumption against the so- called Sunday Blue Laws in that State. Wholesale arrests of SO0 persons, from milk- men and taxi drivers to candy shop proprietors and radio station executives, for 'breaking the Sabbath" present the issue in sharp form. How- ever, the matter may not be as simple as some * proponents of the ,repeal would have it appear. , . A bill to return the subject of Sunday regu- lations entirely to the cities, towns, and incorpor- ated villages has passed the upper house of the islature and failed narrowly in the Iowe house. ents are not so solicitous about keeping the laws" intact as they are about assuring that provision will remain for reasonable Sundoy strlctions in areas outside incorporated cities or ghs. It may readily be agreed fhaf laws adopted ago aqalnst the doing of any "worldly Sunday were mpre suited to the rustic llcity of living in colonial times than they are minute division of labor and the varied ac- tivities of living in present-day cities. Certain nec- essary services, such as water, transportation, and a limited amount of merchandisinq have to be elvailble at all times. Hence, while bringing statutes up to date with customs it is yet wise for State laws to pre- serve a level of minimum standards below which local requlation shoud not fall. . \\; =1[ 11 &t Neighbors With continents in the flames of Visiting the wr either to east or west, the two Americas are finding each other's company increasingly congenial. There have been various factors contributing to this con- geniality within recent days--recognitions of its natural basis, and indications that it will survive.

Ileal sure it will touch a certain spot in the heart of every mother, old or young, who reads it: THE MOTHER Since the black winter night when John was born I never knew a night's unbroken sleep. When John was two and less a care at night, Mary was born. Then Paul and Ernest came nd there were four. I often thought, those years, If I could get but one night's sleep, just one, Without a break, I might not be so tired, Always so tired. Iut that night never came. I heard their cal the second it began And breathless, shivering With cold, i eached Their bed before the cry was still. Or, if I heard no cry, I rose to see :That thingswere welt, and covers tight and warm. The house was small those years: four rooms far all The six of us. I thought I never could Find place for half fh efhings we needed there. Our house is larger now, with seven rooms, And there are two of us to live in them: Nothing remains to break my sleep at night, But now, I find 1 can no longer sleep. A sound, a cry, awakens me, and in my mind, Breathless and shivering with cold, I stand Inside their doo. And then, remembering, t stop, and look on empty beds.
