I A charge of vagrancy lodged This Changing Town By Constance C. Nichols Tee a. sal—. eapt-va.es* ta this caluota.ra UseM el la. srritas ane ea ee. tmsosoJBg refteet tne tspssmiss) •• TTk. SeattaeL—EDITOR. ft ac hols Iff about time some of the laws around this growing town were changed. One in particular I have in mind at the present concerns the operation of taxicabs en the city streets. Admittedly there are not enough cabs to service.the town adequately, yet the laws are such.that any man who attempts to alleviate the situation by filling in the gaps an® at the same time making an .xtra' dollar or so for himself is a lawbreaker. The state laws concerning fishing have been changed, to go into effect in March of this year. Th.* new laws will make the pastime oifishing much less hazardous^ legally, than it has been for-some years. No more pleasuring that bass to see if it has to be thrown back, no tnore watching the calendar for specific dates, no more counting the catch. What a pleasure to enjoy one's hobbv .Uninhibited by outmoded regulations. Are the city fathers so blind or so stubborn that they refuse to change a law that is hampering the speedy movement of a certain portion, of its citizens to and fro about the city? Any person who has had an important engagement and had to rely upon the services of one of the existing .... sab companies for transportation knows what I mean. Time ia no factor to the operators, because,* if you cannot -wait for the cab, there is ol ways another demand Or maybe a dozen for the same vehicle, at the same moment. The fellows around town, known aa bootleg cabbies, are not doing anything immoral. „ • ♦ • Without legal sanction, however, they and their passengers ore in for every danger. These fellows, with a change in the law, could bring respectability to tr*,e business of transporting people in privately owned cars and at the same time do a service for the community—a ser- yice well overdue. „ Aa it is now, they must slip around the city, lawbreakers, wary of any strange fare. ~ • * * \ In Washington, D. C, where many, many young men, both colored and white, operate their own cabs, there is no taxi shortage. These men must pass a. very Stiff examination to receive their licenses and any infringement of tbe rule*, once the license has been obtained, bars them from ever operating a cab again. While I was visiting there last fall I met several a fellows who owned their own cabs. - One was a school teacher by day and operated his cab at night. Another was studying the upholstering trade under the GI bill and running his own taxi in his spare time. ! Each cab is periodically inspected and must be kept in good condition- at all times. t » • ♦ • *V The fellows also use their cabs for their own private driving by merely inserting a card in the window—"Off Duty." As a result of this system of recruiting cabbie?, taxi fare iu Washington is very cheap and one can be hailed within any block, day or night. Perhaps no one *ab company or no one cab driver accumulates a fortune by this system but what of that, if a community is proper- 1/ serviced ? Is Columbus never going to be able to cure its growing pains? Are monopolies going to have such power tbat they hold back the progress of the town? Let's get an ordinance through to license individual citizen*, to become taxi driver-owners and put an end to all this hounding of men who have been pursuing the occupation of . bootleg cabbing. The driver and the occupant* are e/uitled to c.ie pro- l*cu'on of thc law. \ against Berry snd Ira Pegram. 36, 419 E. Main st.. was dismissed by Judge Rodney W. Ross in municipal court Friday. Police reported they spotted Berry and Pegram Dec. 6 lurking around the Friendly Grill. _0th st and Gibbard av.. and when they saw a cruiser coming they jumped in a car and drova awav with their lights out. The officers testified that both men told them they were coming from a Mt. Vernon av. gambling establishment where thev had been gambling all afternoon, and were enroute to gamble at a Cor- win at. place. Police also stated that Berry told them he had not worked for two and a half years, while Pegram stated* that he hadn't worked for two or three months. In court Berry admitted he had hot worked lately. He said he received a 167.50 monthly disability check from the government. When asked by the Judge how much his monthly payments were on his car. Berry replied IBS. ■ "Then you live on le»s than S13.50 per month?" Judge Rosa faked. Judge Ross inauircd if either Berry or Pegram had paid any income tax. Thej* both said they had not. He then observed that "It's unusual that you fellovrs tan live on such short income." He dismissed the chances but advised the police to investigate and determine whether they owed anv federal or city income taxes.

Combs Talks POLITICS la. epuslaaa ajter.e.eo' an lists cot -- sr*. laos. el tk. aacsarily reflect tke eetnlea. ef Tke -.rntieel.—EDITOR. *ir. Comb* • The announcement last Saturday by Gov. Frank J. Laausche that he would be a candidate for ths Democratic gubernatorial nomination at the May b primary literally shattered this writer's crystal ball, for we had predicted that he would not seek a fourth term as governor of Ohioi So as we prepare to eat the proverbial crow dinner, let us attempt to analyze the basic reason which led the governor to seek the unprecedented fourth term, ~ First, lb some political Quarters it is believed that Lausche felt that his chances of being reelected as governor are much better than th'ey are of being elected to any other prominent office to be filled in Ohio trfls year. It is also argued that he doesn t think any prospective Democratic gubernatorial candidates can beat Charles P. Taft of Cincinnati, who is expected to be tbe GOP gubernatorial nominee. IN SUPPORT OF THEORY In support of this theory, it is pointed out that a recent news- paper report stated that Lausche would run against John VV. Bricker, for a seat in the U. S. Senate, providing his close friend, Mayor Thomas Burke of Cleveland, wquad run for the governorship. The report farther said that Burke refused to consider the proposition, preferring to scrv-i out his fifth term as Cleveland's mayor. Burke i. al.o reported to have told Lauache tbat ha (Burke) could not win against a Republican candidate who be expected to ba C. P. Taft CHANCES OF WINNING BETTER So it seems thst Gov. Lausche's decision to seek reelection is baaed on the importance he places in holding the governorship under control by the Democratic party, and that his chances of winning are far better against C. P. Taft, Roscoe Waicutt and Thomas J. Herbert than they would be against John Bricker in a senatorial contest And, too, In the way of patronage the governor's office is a great deal more important to his followers than tho Senate poet. II has been said the governor of Ohio controls over 30,000 jobs, where- _ as a senator's assistants are limited to a handful of clerical workers. So, before making hi. announcement, it is my goes, that all ef tbe above question, war* given careful and serious consideration by Mr. Lausche before he made hi. moment ou. decision tn ran far a fourth term. With Lausche out of the senatorial picture, and Mayor Burks deciding it beat to remain in his office, tbe way has been cleared for Michael DiSalle, Office of Price Stabilization chief, to become a can- aidate against Sen. Bricker. J DiSalle is reported to have been awaiting Lausche's move before entering the senatorial contest, so his announcement might be made before this article is published. When Gov. Lausche and Mayor Burke decided not to enter the senatorial contest, it is my guess tnat John Bricker breather a deep sigh of relief. They were considered to be the only potential candidates who would give him a serious fight for ths seat he now holds. DiSalle is still classed in the mediocre category and as such hi-i chances oi winning against "Champion" Bricker are indeed slim. It appears to me that when Lausche and Burke refused to enter tke contest against Bricker, the Democrats forfeited the seat in the U. S. Senate to the Republicans. DiSalle's connection with the Truman administration will render a shining target to be fired at by John W. 'Bricker in the four corners of this state.

Has 8 Reversals Ohio's Dept of Liquor Control on the average was reversed eight times and sustained once in 1951 by the Board of Liquor Control, it was disclosed in a report by Frank M. Krebs, chairman ot tbe board. The liquor control act provides that persons dissatisfied with the decisions of the department regarding permits and other matters, may appeal to the board. Figures released, by the hoard disclosed that with reference to 10 types of permits where the department had rejected applications tor renewal, the department was sustained by the board ISO times and reversed 1225 times during 1951.
