more powerful argument for the ob-
servance of the law than a theoretical
sermon on the subject.
In addition to this influence, there
is the fear of publicity that hangs
over the head of those contemplating
overstepping the law. With the possi-
ble exception of the hardened crimi-{
nal, there is no type of person who,
will not go to considerable trouble to
avoid unfavorable publicity. The
knowledge that the press will broad-
cast their names and the nature of
their offenses is an influence that
younger criminals, especially, cannot
overlook. To remove this influence
by removing all mention of crime
would help to defeat the very end
which the Treformers seek.
Perhaps the treatment of crime
stories by the modern press is tend-
ing to increase the offenses, but the
remedy lies not in complete abolition,j
but in a change in viewpoint. The'
newspaper is capable of curbing
crime to an extent that other organi-
zations would find impossible.
In order to apprehend the early
morning criminal, the New Lork po-
lice commissioner has ordered the
detective force to be on duty at 6
o'clock. This seems to be a practical

Despite the unfortunate break that
lost to the squad four out of, at that
tine, the seven first men, Michigan
has added another distinction to her
list of athletic achievements. For the
secOnid time in the history of inter-
colhe iate basketball at the Univer-
SiPy, a period running over approxi-
rnately nine years, it has tied for thej
chaimpionship of the Western Con-
ference; never has the coveted prize
rested solely and indisputably here.
Whether or not we are in accord
with the present athletic system here
and throughout the country-if we
think this matter of competition to{
have been overstressed, that the over-
enthusiasm of the student body hasj
ultimately left intercollegiate ath-
lctics commercialized to the extreme,
or what not-the beauty of attainment
over and against heavy odds must be
a ppreciated.
