Women Better Lawyers
Than Men Says Former
Winder Girl Graduate.
By Majorie Mathis.
When Miss Odessa Moore, recent
graduate of the Atlanta law school,
officially hangs out her shingle and
takes up the practice of the law she
has been studying, she will assume the
profession because she is a woman
rather than in spite of her sex.
"For women are better lawyers by
nature than men” the young student of
jurisprudence explained, expressing her
hope that in using her feminine quali
ties of mind and nature she would be
able to succeed eminently in a profes
sion long monopolized by masculinity.
"Men predicted failure for women
when the first feminine teacher was
named,” said Miss Moore. "Now, you
see. women have usurped the profes
sion. So will it be with the practice
The charming young attorney pre
senting the case of women before the
bar of Georgia citizenry, asserted that
women are more diplomatic than men,
and therefore more capable of the in
tricate diplomacies of the law.
"And the practice of law depends
much on a knowledge of human nature,
a thing in which women have always
•evcelk'd,’’ exclaimed the young defender.
Women have studied human nature
just as it grows and develops in the
child and they know how to handle
Miss Moore, who was one of the first
women to become interested in the stale
and National League of "Women Voters,
believe women take citizenship —good
■cDtizenshipi at; least —more seriously
than do men.
“Citizenship as a science” is the nat
ural study of women who practice law,
according to Miss Moore, and the care
with which women meet the citizenship
problems illustrates her fitness for the
While Miss Moore, who was one
of the four women students recently
graduated from the school, is assert
ing the fitness of herself and of wom
en in general for the- practice of law,
her classmates, one of them at least,
is differing. Mrs. Susan Wimberly Ev
erett thinks women can be good law
yers, but doesn’t think they'd like it if
“Not to a woman’s taste,” explained
this student, who is to use her legal
knowledge to further her business ca
In the meantime, Mrs. Aileen Rob
inson. another of the students, agrees
\with Miss Moore and is preparing her
self for the practice of law through
work in an attorney’s office; while Mrs.
M. G. G. Nil-oil. the fourth, makes the
argument break even by going oil with
her work in the Veteran's Bureau
without any announcement of her ad
mission to the bar or her to
practice the rule's she..has just labo

gotten out Dv the Kiwanis club of Mon

appear that the distance from Attlanta
to Athens by way of Monroe is much
nearer than by the Bankhead High
way which comes by Winder. Every
body knows the Winder route is near
er. Also the printing on this may has
a tendency to mislead travelers. The
Bankhead Highway is put down in
plain style to Athens from the Caro
linas. and from Athens to Atlanta the
appearance of the highway is changed
in such a way as to leave the impres

We are surprised that our neighbors
should resort to such tactics to secure
travel l>y Monroe. We always bring
ourselves into disrepute when we do
things that have a tendency to mislead
The route from Athens to Atlanta is
shorter by Winder than it is by Mon
roe. The Bankhead Highway goes by

to be better situated than Monroe

to the publication of such maps as the

SEVERAL NAMES FOR WINDER.
Winder iias had four different names
during its brief existence. It was first
called Jug Tavern, but after the rail
way was built Wiley Bush changed the:
name to Laura City for his wife Then
the name was changed to Brandon, but'
the citizens would not stand Ibat and
so it was called Winder.—T. L. Gantt,
in Athens Banner-Herald.
NO town can he permanently
prosperous in which the eit
zens and tradesmen depend
ent on each other do not patron
ize each other The fact is. hut
little is ever made by going away
to trade, if it can be secured at
home, and oftener there is u loss.
Show us a town in which the
people make it a rule not to
send away for anything they can
get at home and we will show
you a town in which business is
lively, and everybody buys, and
trade is centered from abroad.
I*i ices are low and the tradesmen
patronize each other, having no
suspicion that confidence will lie
abused. lad it be .understood
that when business men of any
town get in the habit of sending
abroad for purchases their busi
ness will languish. Having no
confidence in each othe: how can
they expect others to have confi
dence in them? No, that’s not
the way to build a town. Patron

Southern negroes has overflowed into

And, the police say, the razor of Nic
southern negro is not half so effective
as the stilletto of the Italian and the
'other European nationalities. The
stilletto is a long, slender and very
sharp pointed instrument in the use of
which the low class Italian is very ex
pert, and against which tin* razor is of
little value. The clash if the foreigner

Brawls between the two races occur al
most every night, and in numerous in
stances many negroes have been killed
or severely wounded in the lights.
Similar conditions prevail in De

Thousands of southern negroes who

streets hungry and jobless.
Southern negroes who have migrated
to Cincinnati, are being gouged to the
limit by the landlords in the negro dis
tricts of these cities. Some of them ate

a week for one room, and three and
four families are living In houses built
for one, because of the extreme conges

The negro quarters in Cincinnati arc
largely located down along the Ohio

‘‘Bottoms” in which, according to the
police, as many us 365 persons have

IT IS THE 1923 CROP OF WEEVILS
TH AT WILL RUIN YOUR COT
AN3) THAT YOU MUST KILL
(By ,1. T. PITTMAN, County Agent)
Hibernated boll weevils live four to
six months, but they live an average of
only 7 to 15 days after emergence. Sum
mer weevils live an average of 70 days.
Weevils do not feed much on any thing
but cotton mid they do not lay eggs
anywhere except in squares and hulls
Many farmers stated to me last week
that they were not finding weevils now
ns they did a few weeks ngo.The facts
given here will help you to understand
why. You can also see the need of a
united and concerted tight on the wee
vil at this time.
At this writing the cotton has not
yet put on squares, therefore, the wee
vils can not raise anew crop of weevils
until the cotton puts on the'squares
and bolls. It is the 1023 crop of wee
vils that will damage your cotton. The
hibernated weevils, now living, cannot
do you much damage unless you let
him live to deposit eggs in the square*.
If the farmers will take advantage
of these facts and poison the cotton in
the buds before the squares are formed,
the greater number of the remaining
weevils can be destroyed before they
have a chance to lav the eggs. The
opportunity for a decisive battle is
with you right now
The importance of making the fight
in every cotton field should not be ever
looked. We urge the farmers to do
this —DO IT NOW. Farmers who be
lieve in making the tight should Tteip
their neighbors to see the advantage of
making the fight they will thank you
for it after the cotton is made.
The outlook for a cotton crop is
blight. It lias been very dark during
the rainy days. But, farmers, you are
at the tint now, strike while you have
the opportunity. Eight to ten thous
and bales of cotton can be made if

THE BEAN BEETLE

ing their beans. \lr. 8. G. Potts brought
to tills office a bean leaf shich had
five of these weevils clinging to it. Mr.
W .Vi. Marlow brought in several this
w-’ek and says they are playing havoc
with the bean crop. When they first
appear they look somewhat like a green
ex klehurr. A preparation known as
“Cal Sulphur” will thoroughly destroy
these beetles. j

a way of escape, and that he was

then Bill assumed a serious at
