Despite the much-discussed ineffi-
ciency of government institutions, the
establishment of any particular de-
pa'rtment carries with it the tendency
to accomplish results sufficient to
prove its existence and activity. In
the case of such an organization as a
pardoning board, however, this action
may easily lead to disastrous results.
At the present time, ample proof of
this charge is being displayed in the
investigation of two Illinois grand
juries into allegations that the parole
and pardon board of that state has
grossly misused its powers. In the
testimony offered at the hearings, it
was revealed that money and political
influence have become the sole means
of getting prisoners out of the peni-
tentiary at Joliet. Realization of this
situation by the convicts has led to
a virtual breakdown in prison disci-
pline, according to Warden Whitman,
its effect being responsible for the
murder of Deputy-Warden Klein by
seven men who had neither money nor
In its entirety, this situation is an
argument for a huge curtailment of
the powers and activities of pardon
boards. In the great majority of cases,
the judge who pronounces the sen-
tence is better qualified and is in a
better position to determine the value
of extenuating circumstances than is
anyone who may review the case sev-
eral years after its disposal. While
the latter hears little more than the
testimony of those who desire the re-
lease of the convict, the presiding
judge has all the evidence of the act-
ual trial clearly before him.
Unless definite restrictions are
placed on the activities of pardon
boards, crime will continue to be pre-
valent, and the criminal judicial sys-
tem of the country will remain in a
state of low efficiency.
Slowly, but surely, the old and pic-
turesque makes way for the new and
practical. Now it is the Turkish fez
which has gone the way of its near
relation, the Ottoman veil, under the
vigorous hand of Mustapha Kemal, re-
juvenator of the Turkish state.
The abolition of the fez is but an
example of the rapid changes now
taking place in Turkey. The Angora
government, with its stated policy of
founding a westernized republic, has
trampled roughshod over the long
standing customs and practices of the
Turks to bring order out of the old
regime. And although the picture of
a muezzin singing out his prayer in a
brown fedora is a bit incongruous,
the doing away with the fez has been
justified on the grounds of political
necessity. Kemal figured that he
could gain several ends: it is a direct
blow at the much feared Moslem re-
ligion; he may now place a visored
cap on his soldiers, in place of the
brimless and shadeless fez; and the
wearing of a hat places the Turk on
an equal footing, psychologically, with
other Europeans.
In spite of the fact that many
orthodox Turks refuse to leave their
homes without the symbolic head cov-
ering, and that fifty-five have been
executed for wearing them in viola-
tion of the ruling, the abolishment of
the fez seems a reality. And when one
considers that, in less than three
r years Kemal has set up a new army,
a new state, a new code of laws, has
separated church and state, has
closed all religious seminaries, and
has confiscated the stupendous re-

ligious endowments, it is remarkable
that further inroads have not beenE
made upon the customs of the old
order, symbolized in the wearing of,
the tasseled fez.

This special edition of ROLLS is in
honor of the Senior Ball, held last
night in the Union. We feel that we
must do everything we can to honor
these seniors of ours. Especially in
a humor column.
(See any Grand March picture
you have around the house.)
Following out a unique scheme of
decoration, the ballroom of the Union
last night was transformed into a
seething mass of dancers and charles-
toners. The decorations represented
a senior's dream, on the night before
~the idea was carried out even to
having a sleepy orchestra.
Included in the images on the walls
was a collection of blue books, of
course. As a background there were
four figures with only one thing in
common-they all held blue pencils.
One was a monstrous glowering be-
The next was a little kindlier look-
ing, although no smaller in size.
Then, on his right was a smiling giant,
looking down from the heights.
Way down in the corner was a wee
little man, looking with humble gaze
at a big tall senior.
Another scene showed students
standing in front of a mirror-one
with a frosh ;pot, another with a
tuxedo, others exhibiting: an "M"
sweater, a pipe, cigarette holder,
green-orange-purple-violet tie, "M"
hat, cane, and cap and gown.

Granger 9s Musical
Beginning next Fall, a new organization for
the booking of organized and rehearsed or-
chestras in Ann Arbor and vicinity, with
offices and rehearsing quarters at Granger's
Academy, East Huron street.
Granger's Musical Enterprises will fill a
long felt need on the campus in providing a
centralized and responsible booking agency,
thus alleviating many of the evils heretofore
incident to the engaging of local dance music.
These enterprises will be under the joint
supervision and direction of Mr. B. F.
Granger ;and Mr. H. Boxer.
Contracts now being accepted for next
Fall's rushing parties and house parties.

Among the many chronic ailments
that have been brought upon the
world by the great War, the most
serious and the most periodic of all
is the tendency to revolt. It is only
natural, of course, that a great up-
heaval such as the World War should
upset society and the institutions ofj
government to some degree, but to!
prolong this needless disturbance far
into the decade following the sign-
ing of the peace treaty is overdoing
the thing, to say the least.
Poland has given us the last exam-
ple of these petty European outbreaks
that disturb society and threaten the
existence of modern civilization; and
here, as in many of the preceding
cases, the revolt has accomplished
nothing, as is usually the case. Gen-
eral Pilsudski, the leader of the revo-
lutionists, has retired exhausted. Thej
socialists criticise him for failing to
establish a dictatorship; his friends
criticise him for not seeking the
presidency; his enemies criticise him
for ever starting the revolt; and thet
result must be either a peaceful re-
turn~to the old regime or another
revolution, there can be no half-way
measures. Poland, as a nation, is not
one step further advanced today than
it was before the outbreak, and the
price'she has paid has been fearful.
The story of Poland. is but a repeti-
tion of the story of nearly every other
revolt since the War. All of them
have been failures in some sense, and
it is doubtful if any of them have ac-
complished anything that would not
have come just as surely, and more
effectively, by a gradual evolution.
England today has the most advanced
government on the face of the earth,
and England has not had a revolution
in more than two hundred years. The
remarkable governmental machine that
has been constructed at Westminster
has not cost the shedding of a single
drop of blood nor the sacrifice of a
single principle of humanity. Why
can not continental Europe learn the
lesson that is so effectively borne out,
in England?
Civilhzation should have reached the
point where revolt is unnecessary.
Parliamentary government and the
ballot should be the only weapons

More important than the British
strike news, the outbreak of war in
Poland or Peggy Joyce's latest martial
catch, is the news from Washington
that President Coolidge, in a happy
mood, congratulates senators on Con-
gressional speed.
No doubt the eleven senators who
breakfasted with Cal at the Whitel
House received the shock of their
lives when the "spokesman" congrat-
ulated Congress for the "speed and
diligence" with which legislation has
been considered during the current
session. The President was reported
