Law Professor Says Certainty Is More
Important Than Severity Of Punishment


Irwin Predicts No More Universal War;
Holds International Hatreds Declining





Editor's note: This is the fifth of a
series rii interviews with University authori-
ties on1th crimec situation in thc United
States. Copyright 1926 by -The Michigan
Pointing out that certainty of pun-
ishment is much more important than
severity of punishment, Prof. Burke
Shartell, of the Law school in an in-
terview with a representative of The
Daily, explained that the one prime
aim of all criminal law should be to
deter people from committing crimes.
He remarked that it is a common mis-
conception that the best way to at-
tain this end is to make the punish-
ment for crime 'as severe as possible.
"The 'good American people,' when
sitting in the legislature, work on the
principle that the more severe the
penalty the fewer will be the viola-'
tions," he stated, "but, on the other(
hand, the 'good American people,'
when sitting on a jury, are tremend-
ously impressed with the hardships
of the individual being tried before
them. and see in everv fact used inf

in its first prohibition law, made the
penalty for violation five years im-
prisonment, and found that under that
statute it was impossible to obtain
convictions. The ordinary jury flatly
refused to return a verdict of "guilty"
except in the most flagrant cases.
After a few years the state changed
the minimum sentence to six months'
imprisonment. Convictions at once
became more numerous while the
number of violations diminished.
The percentage of men that areI
hanged or imprisoned for life, as con-
trasted with the number of homicides
committed, must produce a relatively
small deterent effect, in the opinion
of the professor. A ten-year iaxi-
mum penalty, if enforced, would do
much more to check the crime, than
any futile threats of death or life im-
prisonment,! he believes. .
In England, he pointed out, crim-
inal laws are much more effectively
enforced than in this country. The
ratio of sentences to crimes commit-
ted is a great deal higher there than
here, and yet the punishment for first
offenders, except in the case of homi-
cide for which the penalty is hanging,
is usually very light.

"There may be more minor conflicts
but the World war was the last uni-
versal struggle that will ever occur,"I
declared Will H. Irwin, writer and}
war correspondent, in an interview
yesterday before he left Ann Arbor.
Public opinion and the opposing forces
have reached such proportions, in the
opinion of Mr. Irwin, that they would
check any gathering momentum in the
direction of another great war before
it got well under way. The struggles
that will occur will be small and com-
paratively insignificant ones between
smaller powers, but will be very cruel;
and deadly, he believes.j
"Any war that would start now
would not be just because it would be
caused by economic motives. Wars
can be just, however, in certain in-
stances," Mr. Irwin declared.
In regard to the situation on the
continent of Europe the writer be-
lieves that there is far less hatred
there now between the nations than at
any other time in recent history. The
French have gotten over the idea, he
pointed out, that all Germans are
great bloodthirsty brutes and the Ger-
mans have gotten over the notion that
the French are a group of murderous

and selfish persons. Mr. Irwin men-
tioned that this was the first war
in which the participants ever actual-
ly criticised the conflict, after it was
over, as severely as it is being criti-
cised, and mentioned such works as
"What Price Glory" and "Behind the
Front' 'as illustrating this tendency,
which he believes to be a very whole-
some one.
Speaking of the League of Nations,
the famous correspondent said that an
international military police force was
unnecessary in view of the fact that
the league held the powerful weapon,
of commercial boycott. In two cases
already the mere threat of this means
has brought terms and there is no
reason to believe that it cannot be
used with similar success in the fu-
ture. "Disarmament is also a very
sound policy," he stated, "As well as1
these other methods and it is encour-
aging to see great nations actually
laying down their arms by mutual
In concluding Mr. Irwin declared
that there is no use laying down
rules for the governing of wars be-
cause in every major conflict the rules
are broken and treaties are nothing
but tissue paper.,

Final selection of men comprising
the complete cast of "Front Page
Stuff," the 21st annual production of
! Mimes and the Union, was announced
yesterday by E. Mortimer Shuter,
Opera director. The cast, 10 in num-
ber, is now rehearsing daily.
William M. Lewis, Jr., '29, will play
the role of 'June,' the feminine lead,
and will be featured both in numerous
dance numbers, and as a pianist, ap-
pearing in a toe dance feature and
iii a piano solo number on the order
of the Edith Baker specialty. Al-
though this will be Lewis' first ap-
pearance in a Union opera, he has
written the music for several lyrics
composed by Dorothy Stone for "Front
Page Stuff," and, according to Mr.
I Shuter, he has already proved to be
the most valuable assistant in dance
coaching that the Opera director has
ever had. Lewis is' an experienced
dancer, a promising actor, and in
feminine attire is possessed of a fig-
ure and facial beauty that recalls
"Cotton Stockings" and Lionel (Mike)

Future Attempts Against Life Of Duce,
Or Member Of Royal Family, Will
Be Punished By Death
(By Associated Press)
ROME, Nov. 9.-Attempts against
the life of Mussolini or any member
of the royal family will be punishable
by death hereafter. The chamber of
deputies this evening approved this
law to which Mussolini himself con-
sented after the insistent demands ofl
the Fascist party.
The new measure also provides
heavy penalties of imprisonment for
antagonism to his regime. Simul-
taneously the assembly, which is com-
posed of 'black shirts," almost to a
man, unseated the Communists and
120 Oppositionists of various parties,
who have refused to participate in
Parliament since the Matteotei murder
in the summer of 1924.
The death penalty law was carried
by a vote of 295 to 8; the resolution
expelling the recalcitrant members
passed 293 to 10.
It was a remarkable demonstration
of loyalty to Il Duce. Throughout the
session Mussolini sat with arms cross-
ed, staring straight ahead in a line
above masses of roses heaped on his
From the beginning to the end of
the session, the chamber's sole pur-
pose seemed to be to show its admira-
tion for the set-jawed silent man
about whom every eddy and current of
Fascism moved.
