The Michigan legislature of 1921
passed a law which gave the governor
of the state complete control over
the ssuian("e of paroles to inmates of
the ichigan state prisons at Jack-
son, Marquette, lona,. and Detroit.

sion, which in the opinion of many
of the people of the states was func-
tioning efficiently, and presented the
entire burden to the governor, w10

Amid an inundation of verbiage,
British communists received a smash
ing rebuke at the opening session of
the Liverpool conference of the
Island's Labor party. The defeat is
taken as an indication that the radi-
cals have prematurely hit a snag in
their much-heralded campaign to rule
organized British labor.
The vote carries a double signifi-
cance. Besides cutting short the at-
tempt to readmit the extreme wing
of the party, it automatically con-
firms last year's vote which excluded
the reds from political office.
The sharp-edged attitude of thi
moderates is easily apparent. The
communists do not appear to have a
chance, and it certainly seems that it
will take more than three years-
the exclusion period-for them to re-
gain the little favor they had, if
they had any at all.
The conference vote was almost
100 to 1 against a mere reconsidera-
tion of the question as to whether o
not the reds should be readmitted.
Surely if the British communists
have not received a rout, their cause
has been given quite a damper.
From India has come the latest
proposal for the prohibition of intoxi-
cating liquor, indicating that slowly
the principle, despite numerous at.
tacks made upon it in America, is
winning favor in the world. It marks
one more step forward in the fight
started years ago to place alcohol
beyond the reach of man; and it in-
dicates new belief in another quarter
of the globe that it is one of the
duties of government to protect pos-
terity by acts ,regulating the morals
of its citizens.J
The act of the Indian Assembly,
representing a population of 217,000,-
000 Hindus and 69,000,000 Moslems,
is me'rely an expression of the opinion
of that representative body and will
not have legal force unless counter-
signed by the King and ratified by
the English Parliament. Moslems,
according to teachings of the Koran,
should be total abstainers, while
among the Hindus most sects believe.
in and practice a wise indulgence in
good things"-temperance. . t
According to press dispatches, the t
assembly adopted the motion of a
Moslem representative recommend-
ing that the government accept a
polic of eventual prohibition of the
liquor traffic save for medicinal and
scientific purposes, against the com-
bined forces of the Government and
a strong lobby of "European inter-
ests." It calls for the rigid control
of the importation of spirituous
f liquors, placing in the hands of the
Provincial government its enforce-

It seems football is become too
much of a spectacle. Angell says so,
every five minutes, but even so, it's
true. And the worst of it is that the
players are beginning to realize this,

third quarter of yesterday's combat,
was heardtto yell fericously "Hurry

A review, by Sir Toby Tiffin.
The title is very suggestive. In fact
it tells about all there is to the play
in three syllables. But Barry Con-
ners knows how to spread his sauce.
He does it very adroitly and very
naively. In certain places it is per-
haps, too thick, and in others, too
thin; but there really is enough to
cover three acts.
A notice on the program brands
this as another one of those comedies
of American life that Mr. Pulitzer
liked so. Don't let this deceive you.
It takes place in an American town
and the characters, are American, bt
it is wise enough not to take such
things seriously. Hence it is highly
The entire company seems terribly
conscious of the fact that they are
acting a play; furthermore, they are
terribly conscious that it is a funny
play. They take few pains to hide'
these facts from the audience. When-
ever a humorous line comes along,
which is quite often indeed, they look
right out at the onlookers and all but
wink, in order to prepare them foe
the line. This is too bad, becauso
Mr. Conners' lines don't need this
introduction. Almost anyone could
tell they were funny the first time
he heard them.
At one time we became very wor.-
ried for fear that Mr. Conners was
about to preach, which would have
been very sad indeed, inasmuch as no
one would have taken him very seri-
ously. But fortunately he took a
brace and kept on spreading his ap-
There is, of course, a plot to the
piece, but that also is not to be taken
seriously. In fact there is nothing
about the play which you should take
very seriously. If you do you won't
enjoy it, but if you want to spend an
evening in which there is nothing to
take seriously, which is, after all
what you should do at theatre, you'll
like Mr. Conners' "Applesauce very
