LENIENCY AND CRIME
In the treatment of convicted criminals, the cen-
ry anda half since Beccaria has witnessed a gen-
al abandonment of brutality and neglect, in favor,
milder punshment and greater consderation.
[is general tendency has met with universal ap-
-oval, and it was in ine therewith that Michigan
id several other progressive states elected to ex-
ude the death sentence from their perial codes.
odern theorists in criminology have ventured to
stulate a general principle of leniency as the most
fective stimulus to reform, and humane adminis-
aators have consented to the inauguration 'of
ison systems based thereon, with varying results.
I view of the extraordinary prevalence of criminal
tivity at the present time, both outside and inside
prisons, the question is being asked whether ab-
ice of the death penalty for capital offenses, and
ro ready leniency to lesser criminals, may not be
:trimnental to the eradication of crime, rather than
nducive to it.
Reliable authorities, whose judgment is based on
ng experience and study, assert that the principle
leniency cannot be justified without qualification,
uply on the grounds of the popular trend toward
imane treatment, which is the natural corollary
the advancement of civilization. The gruesome
fects of misguided leniency to convicted crim-
als are cited to show that the leniency theory
s serious defects in practice, just as had the
Ier policy of severity, when injudiciously ap-
ed. In the present crime wave, which is a re-
uidescence of earlier-day lawlessness growing out'
the recent war, the existence of the death pen-
:y is believed to act as an important check upon
e more reckless or desperate, and its universal
option, for the time at least, is believed- to rec-
amend itself as the lesser of evils.
Authorities point out that neither severity nor
liency can be regarded as a uniformly applicable
medy for crime. Circumstances and mo)tives
ist be weighed in every case, and the careful,
mpetent prescriptioh of justice, with its compe-
it administration by prison and probation of-
ials, alone can prove effective. Any other course
11 not inculcate in the criminal a real respect for.
ht, which is regarded as the primary requisite
r any stimulation to permanent reform. More-
er, it is pointed out that reform of the criminal
not the primary concern of criminal law and
ial institutions, and that much miscarriage of
tice results from the mistaken emphasis laid
:n this feature, highly desirable though it is,
>ealing to men's highest sentiments.
Law and its administration have three distinct
ects: firstly, the protection of law-abiding peo-
tfrom the criminally disposed; secondly, the
Atection of innocent persons from unjust con-
nnation; thirdly, the impositon of just punish-
!nt in those guilty of crime, supplemented by
lcation and assistance, to the end that the erst-
while criminal may bevcorrected and retrieved, for
his own and society's good. Let severity or len-
iency be justly and competently applied, with
these stern objects kept in mind in the obvious
order of their relative importance.
WE HEREBY RESOLVE
Church bells chimed, fire bells clanged, automo-
bile horns tooted and shrieked and howled, fac-
tory sirens added their discordant notes, and all
about men and women laughed and shouted and
chered. It was the modern way of ushering in
the New Year, and as the fast moving sands of
time reached midnight, men resolved that they
would be better this year, better mentally, morally,
physically -- just as they might do in Utopia. But
was there ever a New Year's celebration without
its resolutions, its vows made by mortals who kept
to their oaths only as long as the novelty and
newness lasted and then -? So, with this some-
what cynical realization to guide us, we propose
the following resolutions:
To study only for blue books or finals, or, if
the situation is serous enough, for both; to buy
no more cigarettes, because the other fellow ought
to carry them about with him; to schedule no
more eight o'clocks; to read the other fellow's
Daily, it's cheaper; to see more of the boulevard
this spring; to attend the J-Hop, even if your
roommate must stay at home because his formal
outfit fits you; to - and - and so forth.
"And that's about all one man can do."
"The deeds of our lives are as grass; the wind
passes over them and they are gone." Such is the
destiny of the acts of most of us - fadng mem-
ory, occasional recollection, and then oblivion. Not
even the evil that men do lives after them for
Thus the sad alumnus, returning to his alma ma-
ter after a decade of enforced exile, may muse
to himself. There is no memory of the campus
great of ten years gone by in the minds of the
present generation of students. Football player,
editor of The Daily, President of the Union, Mich-
igamua - their fame is dim no matter what
they were. It may seem a strange thing that those
who walk the campus now and judge all men by
what they do on that same campus, ordinarily
judge the graduate not by what he has done here
but by what he is doing in the world of affairs.
But it is ludricrous to ask that what a man does
during his college career should make him immor-
tal, or even cause his memory to be revered for
long. He works for temporary reputation, for
the value of meeting his fellows, for the experi-
ence which comes from doing the work of the
campus, for the good of a campus which must
have that work done.
Taken by and large, the experience the activi-
ties man gets is of far more use to him than any
puny fame would be even though it should be
lasting. College is an anteroom to life. If he can
prepare himself ,in this anteroom, to succeed in
the actual work of the outside world, what more
should he ask? It is a right and proper thing that
college reputations face and die.
Judging from the value of German money and
the rate at which it is being issued, printing prices
must be very reasonable in the Fatherland.
When I to eight o'clocks daily trot
With thoughts of breakfast eaten niot,
Who lies there sleeping on her cot?
When I am cramming Latin prose,
Having lent out all my party clothes,
Who is it that a-dancing goes?
And when on Sunday church begins
While cussing I hunt those doggone pins,
Who is it prays for all my sins?

A pistol shot put Jerry Gupp
Wherever he has gone to;
A thug commenced to hold him up
And Jerry tried to argue.

Here rests a famed sculptor
Unmarked by a stone,
He carved many a tomb
But forgot his own.
