College students are particularly
qualified to cast an intelligent bal-
lot. They should be better equipped
to understand the fundamental na-
ture of the questions at stake and
circumstances surrounding an elec-
tion. If people who understand the
true nature of political questions do
not vote the decision of those ques-
tions is left in the hands of unintelli-
gent voters, and an unintelligent vote
is many times worse than none. There-
fore it behooves every student who
has the interests of his home com-
munity at heart and who realizes the
nation's dire need of true citizenship
to take advantage of the absent bal-
lot, and to cast a studied, intelligent
To accuse the newspapers of in-
creasing crime by giving so much'
space and prominence to murders and
robberies is nothing new. Newspa-
pers do this to appease the curiosity
of a public which demands excite-
ment, according to certain journalj
ists. But a suggestion made at the'
recent convention of the University
Press club which included editors
from throughout the state of Michi-
gan, offers an alternate method for
the newspapers, by which they may
still have absorbing stories, and yet
do their share in abating crime rather
than encouraging it.
The suggestion is that newspapers
should advertise the punishment in-
stead of the crime. If an individual
reads constantly streamer headlines
concerning some new theft, and later
on the sentence imposed upon the
thief is crowded into a small corner
of the paper where he is apt to over,
look it entirely, the most natural im-
pression is that criminals can "get
away with" most anything they
Were the speedy punishment of of-
fenders given as much or preferably
even more publicity in the newspa-
pers than the original offense, poten-
tial offenders would begin to see that
crimes do not go unpunished, and
that lawbreaking is hardly worth
while. News stories would be none
the less interesting, "while journalism
would be devoting itself to- a really
commendable service instead of help-
ing to increase the scope of crime
through yellow sensationalism.

THE FASCISTI "REVOLUTION"
(Detroit Free Press)
The resignation of Premier Facta
of Italy and his cabinet under press-
ure of duress from the Fascisti looks
a good deal like a revolutionary over-
turn. The government certainly quit
in the face of an armed threat. At
the close of its recent convention in
Naples, the leader of the Fascisti, Be-
nito Mussolini, declared he had taken
a solemn oath that either the govern-
ment of the country must be given
peacefully to his organization, or that
the Fascisti would take it by force, as
the society has an army of about 350,-
000 men in the field, and as this army
has the backing of about a million
and a half of non-combatants, there is
no doubt that for the moment it con-
trols the country, and the next ad-
ministration must be agreeable to the
But if we look into the situation a
little, it is not quite what it appears
to be on the surface. The Fascisti
are patriots; they support the king
and the kingship; they are, in fact, the
party of protest against socialism.
They do not want to overturn the
present system of running the country;
they simply want the abolition of what
they consider abuse.
Mussolini declines to assume the
premiership to which sympathetic ob-
servers say he is entitled until the
country has expressed itself in a gen-
eral election. But he also refuses to
countenance a general eletion until
the existing electoral system, adopted
by Premier Nitti to please the social-
ists, and introducing proportional
election, is cast into outer darkness
by the chamber of deputies. To con-
cede this will be a bitter pill for the
deputies because a good many of them
will be legislating themselves out of
office. But a still more painful medi-
cine for them to swallow is held to
their lips by the Fascisti leaders. This
is a demand that the government quit
its neutral attitude as between the
Fascisti and Socialists andi take se-
vere measures against the bolshev-
ists, to fight whom the Fascisti were
originally brought into existence. The
organization is, in fact a true Nation-
alist party, a party of conservatives,
if you like, organized to save Italy
from the Reds. Though it seems to be
using revolutionary measures, its fun-
damental aim is to preserve the coun-
try from a devastating revolution, de-
structive of its constitution and its
institutions. How wise the Fascisti
may be in their methods is perhaps
a separate question, but we must re-
member in trying to judge them that
what would amount to outrage in
America may be necessary and justi-
fiaple in Italy.
MARING LANGUAGES HUMAN
Foreign languages, as they are
taught at present in junior schools,
universities, and colleges throughout
this country, yield to the student, from
a practical standpoint, a very small
actual benefit, if any. The average
student of today taking a three year
course in some foreign language
finds, upon completion of his study,
that he can neither understand the
strange gibberish, mastery of which
he has been so long striving for, when
it is spoken, nor speak the language
fluently, whether it be French, Span-
ish, Scandinavian, German or what
not. He can pick out the grammati-
cal errors in another's speech or
writing to a fair degree of accuracy
and rgularity; but to understand the
strange tongue with ease, or to con-
verse in it fluently, is far beyond his
sphere of accomplishments.
From a practical standpoint, ac-
quaintance with a foreign language is
an asset only in so far as it is useful
in post-graduation days-in later life.
Few men, or women, ever have occa-
sion to read French literature exten-
sively. Few men, on a relative scale,
choose for an avocation the teaching of
French-and, verily, those who do,
must be able to speak it, as well as
teach it. The majority find French
useful solely from the standpoint of
business, conversation, travel, nation-
al diplomacy, politics, and teaching.
To this class, the ability to speak
Frenh fluently and, in turn, to under-
stand readily when French is spoken
to them is essential-the first need!
This is true not only of French, but
of every foreign language being
taught. Fluency in speaking is the
prime requisite-the first need!
The universities throughout the coun-
try-not particularly Minnesota
should meet this need. More stress
should be laid on the proper speak-
ing of the language being taught and;
less on the particularities of gram-
matical structure. Instead of talking
English in the classroom talk the
language be ng taught. When the
'boys" returned from "overseas,"
eevry man of them could both speak
and understand the French tongue
with ease, although most of them had

THE TIME TO FlGHT
Yesterday afternoon Michigan won
her second Conference game of the
football season from Illinois;' by a
large score. The team displayed a
driving- power and organization of
such a calibre that even Michigan
alunni found it difficult to seek com-
parison in the past. Nevertheless,
Michigan is only half way to the goal
of championship, and two of the hard-
est battles still remain to be won.
This is io time to become over-
confident. Yesterday afternoon Mich-
igan played splendid football, but the
score was not gained on that alone.
