Would hang Mr. Ray, a ‘muddled reactionary’

3 Sep

This second letter is the one my father refers to in his column on Sept. 15, 1934. The same arguments on capital punishment are still being argued today. As for me, I would have to agree with Mr. Streator, though not on the hanging part :). My dad wrote the original column on Sept. 1, 1934.

Hanging Mr. Ray ‘with his own suspenders’

11 Aug

I found the letter to the editor published  Sept. 8. 1934, from George Streator that this column refers to. I still agree with Streator. Sorry, Dad! This debate on capital punishment started with a column Ebenezer published Sept. 1, 1934.
