Editor, The Qhronicle: The writ
er certainly appreciated the force of
your remarks, as set forth in an edi
torial entitled, "Parents to Blame," in
your issue of the sixteenth, inst.
We consider this a splendid analysis
of the situation and hope that fath
ers and mothers reading the editorial
will take it unto themselves and prof
it thereby. We so often hear the re
mark, "Tljat youngster has absolutely
no respect for himself or anyone else,
violates every law of decency and
yet appears to think he is some class."
On reflection, this brings us to an
other of your editorials, found in the
'issue of the eighteenth, entitled,
"Hard to Convict." This refers to two
parties' arrested for violation of tho
prohibition law, and where both are
alleged to be equally guilty; the one
pleading guilty as charged, the other
demanding a jury trial and comin?-
clear. You affirm that this verdict,
as rendered, is an expression of public
opinion. The writer agrees with you,
but only so far as that it applies to
but a part of the public, and we are
convinced it does not include that por
tion of our citizenry that is law-abiding.
The question you raise is no long

matter of law and personal liberty, as
such, must not be above the law. All
laws interfere with personal liberty,
so why shall an exception be made of
