PRESIDENTS of the United States,
so far. have not sprung from that
class of our population known In, po
lice circles as chair-warmers, accord
ing to Judge Rossman's statement to
Carl Whiting and Richard Cross.
youths, before him yesterday mornenff
Neither Is the art of chair-warming
recognized as a necessary occupation
during war times, at least, the court
pointed out to the boys, both of whom
were arrested In Rrickson'a resort by
policemen, who told the Judge that the
boys appeared to be ambitious only to
assist in keeping the space filled there
and in helping to keep the chairs warm.
Judge Rossman's statements relative
to our Presidents seemed not to awaken
much of an ambition within their
breasts to try for that honorable posi
tion. As a matter of fact. Whiting Is
not eligible, anyway, having been born
In a foreign country Sweden. With
him out of the running. Cross was the
only one left and he seemed indiffer
ent. "I guess you prefer to hang around
a cheap place and to associate with
cheap fellows, rather than to make
something of yourself." commented the
Judge in the case of Cro.
This thrust did not appear to bother
Cross In the least. The Judge sent him
bark to the Jail until tomorrow.
Whiting, who never can be Presi
dent, was told he must remain aloof
from his favorite resort in the North
End district and must separate himself
from idle glasses, supposedly meaning
those without funds.
"Otherwise." concluded the Judge, "I
shall lodge you in Jail and provide you
with employment in furnishing crushed
rock for the Skyline- boulevard. Kindly
remember these things."
