OVER THE PANAMA CANAL
Balboa, Canal Zone, Dec. 29.—A
smoke screen will be thrown over the
Panama Canal today for the first time
in the history of the canal, to test out
an experimental scheme to produce
dense white smoke by using the ca

be perfected by the chemical warfare
service, commanded by Maj. Owen R.

into little tanks placed along the ca
nal route, creating a screen follow

This is part of the defense program,
and, it is anticipated, will be success
ful, according to high army author
A dozen field observation plains
from France field, protographers and
radio men will report the effectiveness
of the screen. Col. Arthur G. Fisher, |
commander at France field, will com- j
mand the surveying and will report
his findings, via Maj. Gen. Graves, to

THE INSANITY I'LEA.
(Kansas City Times.)
Has it come to this that the more
revolting the crime the better the
chance of the criminal to escape pun
ishment? If so, then we shall have
more revolting crimes. The country
has been shocked by the acquittal of
the murdered Remus and the conduct
,r,i the jurj that freed him on an in
sanity plea. It is now indicated that
insanity will be the defense of Ed
Irrespective of individual opinion
on this subject, the public would not
be concerned' if it could look forward
with confidence to a verdict in con
formity with authoritative opinion on |
this question of sanity. What causes i
natural concern it the prospect that
the judgment of sanity probably will
be left wholly to a jury influenced, not
by knowledge of mental disorders, but
by conflicting testimony of available
experts, by biased testimony and by
the sentimental harangues of counsel.
There long has been a conviction in
the minds of many of those identified
with crime problems that each state
should have, subject to call, the most
authoritative board of sanity experts
available; that it should be the duty
of such a board to pass upon the
question of a defendant’s sanity, if
raised, at the time the crime was com
mitted and at the time of trial; that
the decision of such a board should
have such weight, by virtue of the
learning and standing of its members,
that no honest jury could consistently
question its findings. With such
diagnosticians available, there would
be only the remotest chance that one
mentally irresponsible would be put
to death or unjustly imprisoned. On
the other hand, it should be corres- A
poindingly difficult to make out a case 9
of insanity for a responsible person.
In England, when the question of i
sanity is raised at the criminal bar,
the court has available the highest
authority on mental disorders. In
almost every instance the testimony
of such authority is final. There is
no such thing as a prolonged trial, in
which alienists of more or less stand
ing consume hours on hours in giving
testimony that only confuses the
jurors. Nor does the court need to
tolerate the bringing in of irrelevant
matter or the resort of counsel to
elaborate sentimentality. The result
is that England scarcely knows of
such cases of insanity defense as so
often scandalized our courts and
shock the American public.
