About the most indelicate set of

Not to Lave done so, one gathers,

The weakness of this questionnaire
consists in the fact that "improper"
may mean different things to differ
ent people. To an elder of Zion, for
instance, any dancing is "improper,"
and any dress cut above the wrist
or below the collar, is wicked. To a
girl who has been accustomed to see
claret on the dinner table ery day
of her life until prohibition came
in. the occasional use of a mild glass
of wine seem3 a perfectly innocent
thing, whereas the ardent pussyfoot
would consider such sinful indul
gence a shame and a disgrace. "Tell
ing a lie."
In some uncouth guide circles in
cludes such polite fictions as "not at
home," and "sorry to find ycu out."
Petting parties and kissing without
good and sufficient cause, (such as
an engagement which is inoant to be
kept) would seem to come within
the curse. These amusements can-
not. with any probability at all. be
considered ladylike.
But one little angel declared her
self innocent of all the misdemean
ors except one. .That sounds like a
pretty good record, doesn't it? She
hadn't done anything improper,
smoked, danced, lied or kissed. She
was almost wholly innocent, but
she had cheated.
Now, to some reasonable uud 'ion
orable minds, cheating would seem
worse than all the other ciimes ex
cept perhaps the illicit kissing, put
On the whole, nobody has any
right to ask such questions. Human

yet. They are too painful.

Excitement was keyed up to a high
pitch when it came time for the con

the ring. Lamson was first in, fol

received a nearly even ovation.
At- the opening of the first rovnd,
Andy was out and quickly landed a
number of hard blows about the In

pain or for other reasons the yellow,
skin took to- his hands and knees on

The end came In the third round,
shortly afier the Indian had crowded
him to the ropes, struck a low blow,
and then followed with a stiff punch
to the jaw that sent the Cass county
boy through the ropes. A little later
when Lamson camped on the canvas,
Schmader dove in with a fusilade of
blows to the head, and the referee
awarded the decision to Lamson.
Charges and counter-charges were
heard pro and con of the affair, but
.the facts remain that to date Andy
and Bud Lamson have had thpfr H-
s censes suspended indefinitely, while
the state hoard is said to he consid
