To the Editor:
Recently in "Campus Opinion" a
writer appeared to disagree with an
editorial which The Daily ran fa-
voring Secretary Doak's plan for
deporting our gangsters and racke-
teers in our larger cities. He wishes
to be counted among those advo-
cating "sincere, determined and in-
telligent schemes to get rid of
them." So do millions of other pub-
lic-spirited citizens of our country!
But they have no plan to offer but
simply complain that nothing is
being done, and when a sensible
plan is suggested disagree for the
reason that "we wouldn't deport a
case of diphtheria just because the
patient happened to be foreign
He states the answer to this ques-
tion himself when he says that
crime is a social ailment. As diph-
theria is a physical disease that has
a known cure, it cannot be com-
pared to crime. For crime brings
up the question of morals of the
individual which are seldom
changed by "treatment" as the
writer suggests; and he has no kind
of treatment to offer. Certainly we
would like to deport all cases of
diphtheria if it were possible. It
would be getting at the cause and
not looking for a cure. The same
holds true for criminal instincts
Deportation would be the surest.
safest, easiest, and most practical
method for getting at the cause of
the trouble, since we have not yet
found a cure.
If the writer would look over any
of the newspapers of our large
cities such as Chicago, New York.
San Francisco, St. Louis, and other
c;ities bothered with crime, he will
Lnd that the names mentioned in
connection with the crime reports
are invariably suffixed with a for-
sign combination, the whole being
quite unpronounceable. A s h o r I
time ago the Tribune in Chicagc
published a photograph gallery of
he gang leaders who had been
killed during 1930, and except for
Jhe negroes, the names were all ex-
"remely foreign. The same paper
isted the twenty-five most impor-
tant leaders of crime in that cit3
,hat they wished deported and
they were all of foreign birth.
It would seem therefore that the

Longmans, Green have recently
announced the fourth annual play-
writing contest. It is conducted by
the Drama League of America inl
conjunction with the publishing
house. The National judges for the
full length plays will be Waiter
Prichard Eaton, critic and author;
Stuart Walker, producer and play-
wright; and Arthur Edwin Krows,
author of "Playwriting for Profit."
The Judges of the religious plays
will be Dr. Norman L. Richardson,
Prof. Harold A. Ehrensperger and
Mrs. A. Starr Best. The National
Judges for the one-act plays will
be Kenyon Nicholas. dramatist, the
American Academy of Dramatic
Arts, Alexander Dean of Yale Uni-
versity Theatre. The State Judges
will be announced later. The pur-
pose of the contests is the discovery
of new authors and the develop-
ment of native American drama.
As has already been indicated,
there will be three divisions of the
contest. The one is the full length
play which may be on any subject,
(although an additional cash award
will be given for a play meeting
satisfactorily the specifications of
good, clean, high class comedy). The
one act play must be appropriate
for presentation on the George
Washington bi-centennial in 1932.
It is suggested that these plays be
on some subject which actually re-
lates to Washington. The religious
play (which is something of ar in-
novation to meet what is called a
great need for plays on ethical
subjects) must be full length and
