One of the earliest forms of punish
ment instituted in American colonia
adays was the old whipping post an
the public stocks. With the avanc
in prison reforms and sociologica
theories as to the effect of vario
forms of penalty, both of these prac
tices were abandoned as useless bru
tality many years ago in -practicall
all of the states.
The passing of the Wood whippin
post bill, providing for the whippin
of male criminals convicted of robber
armed or of murder while attemptin
robbery armed with a maximum o
50 lashes, by the Michigan Senat
Tuesday afternoon may bring about
return to the long discredited prac
tice. In the words of one of its op
ponents, the bill would take Michiga
back to the dark ages.
Supporters of the measure argu
that it has become almost impossibl
to get anyone to take charge of
branch bank in any of the cities of th
state and Detroit in particular on ac
count of the great number of rob
beries. Senator Wood states: "All o
us have been young and we know tha
nothing subdues like a whipping. Th
thugs would rather have five years i
jdil than, one flogging."
The idea might be a good one fo
punishment in juvenile cases but it i
more or less absurd to believe tha
flogging will cause any great humilia
tion of hardened adult criminals. Th
experience of college fraternities i
the application of the traditiona
"paddle" has indicated that grow
men are but little affected by this soi
of thing. Largely because of this
rough initiations are being frowne
upon by fraternal leaders throughou
the country as undignified and useles
for disciplinary purposes.
A similar reaction will result if th
whipping post is reinstated as a form
of punishment. A few of those wh
would be subjugated to this penalt
might be humbled into obedience bu

would be all the more obstinate an
Fortunately, the bill cannot be pass

legislature unless the House rules ar

To the Editor:
I wish to take exception to your
editorial of April 28th, entitled "Paul
in Power."
To anyone acquainted with the po-
litical and social troubles, of post-
war Germany Hindenburgs election
would-not be surprising. There are
at least a dozen essentially different
political factions in Germany. The
wranglings of these discordant ele-
ments are ever preventing a sane and
stable government. The Germans are
frankly disgusted with the ineffectual
squabbles occuring within the Reich-
stag. So surely the appointment of
the staid Hindenburg-or any other
representative of stability-is com-
patible with logical expectation.
Further than that, the Hindebgurg
administration should prove a relief
rather than an alarm to the allied
nations. In the first place, order will
result, and the establishment of unity
will not be followed , by absolute
monarchism, unless outside interefer-

ence incenses the Germans to rash
extremes. The fact is that the Ger-
mans hate the Kaiser and his kind as
much as we do. And don't think that
Hindenburg will cast aside the Dawes
plan and start another European con-
flict. He is a hard-boiled soldier,
brought up-as it were-on cold fact;
he realizes the asininity of pitting his

Night Editor-GEORGE W. DAVIS
The resolution of the Michigan
alumni of the fourth district of the
general alumni association to enlarge
the scope of their activities to include
the fostering of the ideals of higher
education in their commonwealths and,
an assumption of an active interest1
in the progress of local state and
private institutions as well as in that
of their alma mater is a significant
contribution to what is generally de-
signed as "college loyalty." It is
wider and better interpretation of the
duty of the college or university grad-
uate to the system which gave him his
As a general thing alumni of our
various educational institutions are
prone to miss the real significance of
their position as men and women who
have had the advantages of so-called
high learning. They confine their la-
bors and thought for education to a
somewhat clannish loyalty to the
school from which they have been
graduated and display it by attending
numerous banquets and football
games, by doing much yelling and
singing and hurrahing about the old
times when they were young-and stu-
All of this rather perfunctory dem-
onstration is likely to submerge the
better sensibilities of college men. If
the individual happens to be an east-
ern college man in the West he is in-
clined to discount the value of anyl
educational institutions of his local-
ity-even to scorn them. If he is the
product of a western state or private
institution living in the East he more{
than likely will confine his activities to'
proving to his compatriots the relative!
superiority of the new educational
systems over the old. In either case,
most alumni are inclined to overlook
their real responsibility-the encour-,
agement of the means of education
wherever they may be.
It is, this which the Michigan
alumniof the fourth district 'propose1
to emphasize. In the words of the!
resolution: "-one of the prime pur-
poses of the members of the associa-
tion shall always be an interest in the
educational problems and institutions
of their~ respective communities and
states, as well as those of the Uni- I(
