Loosing the most heated bombard-
ment heard in Washington since Col.
William Mitchell retired to the corn-
parative obscurity of private life and!
lecture tours, Senator Reed, the Dem-1
ocratic orator from Missouri, has
been nobly upholding the cause of
the wets against the united opposition
of four dry senators on the committee
investigating prohibition. Being con-
tinually outvoted there, despite his
oratory, the new "fiery petrol" took
his troubles, via the underground
tube, to the floor of the Senate, and
promptly precipitated a small riot
there. However little sympathy one
may have with Senator Reed's plat-
form, he is to be admired for his
steadfast devotion to his cause. He is
most certainly not "on the fence.'
As for the investigating committee,
except for the interesting exchange;
of words between the two forces, I
nothing/ seems to have been proved.
Edwin A. Olson, district attorney of
Chicago, unleashed a new flock of
charges against the law enforcement
officials of that city. All that he said
had long been suspected by law-abid-
inz residents of the city and has been

For decades it has been the prac-
thie, ahmest 'a tradition, that students
at the University should register for
the next semester's courses during
the week preceding the opening of the
term. The result is unbelievable con-
fusion. Classification committees and
registration officials, faced with the
task of classifying some 10,000 stu-
dents within a week's time, are over-
whelmed, and consequegtly, neither
faculty advisors nor students are able
to give to the task of making out pro-
grams of studies the attention which
it deserves.
At several prominent institutions,
notably Minnesota and Washington, a i
practice has been adopted whereby
students make their elections of
courses and classify for the following.
renester before the preceding term is
fver. AttJhe first named institution,
elections are being received this week
for next semester's courses. In order
to relieve the burden of classification,
it has been provided further that stu-
dents shall classify by groups, the
seniors being assigned one week, the
juniors another, and underclassmen
s till other periods.
Indeed, a step in the direction of
allowing early elections and thus
lesseninu the burden upon students,1
their advisors, and classification offi I
vials was taken at the University last
semester when, contrary to customary
practice, elections for the second se-
mester of the present school year
'ere received before the close of the
fall term. It was a commendable
step, but hardly sufficient to afford
distinct relief.
The plan might well be carried for-
ward still another step this spring byl
providing for election of next semes-1
ter's courses- sometime before thel
June examinations. Students thus'
would be given an opportunity to planI
early for next semester's work; it1
would allow them considerable time
to consult with the faculty members,
about matters pertaining to elections; i
and it would eliminate the need for
the early return to the University in
the fall which is now almost neces-
sary to give the student time to ar-<

mediate and vital question, rather
than cross-examining the worried
witnesses appearing before the Sen-
ate's prohibition committee.,

(The Philadelphia Public Ledger)
Is there a "crime wave"? Or do
we only think there is one because
the facilities of news-gathering make
it seem so? This is a moot point,
upon which penologists and statisti-
ciapns will dispute until the millenni-
um. But there is no escape from thej
fact that crime is widely prevalent in
the United States and that in this re-
spect the comparison with conditions
across the border in Canada and in
England is by no means creditable to
this country.
Dr. Bagley, of Columbia University,
speaking to the schooolmen at the
University last week, assumed the ex-
istence of a crime wave and discussed
the causes. These he summarized as
follows: "A legal system that pro-I
tects the criminal, laxity and leniencyf
of law enforcement, material prosper-
ity and the mobility of, population."
We cannot hope, ought not to hope,
to do away with material prosperity;
and the mobility of population is a
permanent factor which cannot be
changed. But the other two causes
are subject to remedial action, and it
ought to be the first duty of the
courts, the lawmakers and the people
to find and apply them.
There is nothing new, of course, in
this definition of causes. But the
serious thing about it is the apparent
unwillingness to change a legal sys-1
tem that protects the criminal or to
insist upon more rigid law enforce-
ment. It will not do to seek to put
the blame for -laxity and leniency
upon the passing phase of liquor-law
enforcement problems. The real trou-
ble lies with the inefficiency of the
legal machinery for the punishment of'
crime. Lawyers and Judges recognize
the evils, but nothing is done to era-
dicate them. The truth, probably, isi
that nothing short of a thoroughgoing
and radical reorganization of our en-
tire processes for the application and
enforcement of criminal law will meet
the difficulty.
Such a reorganization would of

Dear Sir:
We have been absent from your class
in -- this week. We feel that
an explanation of some sort is due
you. It follows. We spent our vaca-
tion in New York City. As anyone
knows who has been there recently*
there is a great deal of building going
on at present. Contractors and build-
ers of every sort are completing one
job after another. It amounts, in fact,
to sort of a mania. This form of in-
sanity extends even to dentists. This
was the cause of our absence.
It is our habit to visit the gentle-
man, if we may call him that, regular-
ly every six months, because, as every
one knows, dentists too must live. It
was this visit which made us late.
Across the street from the office they
are building a thirty-five story apart-
ment house. Our dentist caught the
mania from that. He too felt the
urge to drill and hammer, put in re-
enforcements and bridges and what
not. We unfortunately became a vic-
tim. The first few hours were spent
in drilling foundations, the second
and third day sessions to riveting and
When we had recovered from this
he proceeded to do the interior dec-
orating. Gold and silver work. This
obviously took considerable time.
Finally when all was completed the
final cleaning up took place, in fact,
when all the work was done we came

of tihe great Houssac Tunnel during
Haring read all this you will no
doubt wonder that we were not more
than one day late in returning, in fact
that we returned at all, and we feel
that further discussion is unneces-
s ary, and it was perfectly all-right
for you to mark us absent because
how could you tell what happened to

Having already admitted where we
spent the none too long vacation, it
may be of interest to some of our
readers to learn something of the
current season in Drama, since such
a vast amount of interest on the part
of the student body has already been
exhibited in their loyal support of
campus dramatics.
Well then let it be knewn that the
chief type of drama which flourishes
in the great metropolis this season is
the mystery play. Not the old type
so beautifully typified by "The Bat"
and "The Cat and the Canary" but a
brand new form. At present this form
is known as "Symbolism" for want of
a better name.
The "Symbolistic" plays are much
more subtle in their mystery than the
earlier forms. There is no problem
as simple as merely finding out who
killed Cock Robin. The mystery in

The tour of Bernard Shaw's "Great
Catherine" throughout the state dur-
ing the spring vacation closed Mon-
cay, April 19, with a matinee and
evening performance in the Central
High School, Grand Rapids. The play
received large houses for all of its
engagements, including an audience
of over fifteen hundred people in the SPECIAL
Pease auditorium, Ypsilanti, over 'S
nine hundred school children at the Each Tuesday and Wed-
matinee in Grand Rapids, and a sold- nesday

ways be to the taste of the petty audi-
