STUDENT GOVERNMENT
(The Daily Illini)
Students are constantly reminded by their fellows
and by their elders that they do not need govern-I
ment, have few problems worthy of their serious
consideration, and are in a deep coma. The criti-
cisms are not without basis, for students have not
shown themselves politically minded even in the
management of their own affairs.
Two factors, however, figure prominently in this
dearth of interest, and if they were removed, student j
participation in the management of their affairs

has been given to the actual mechanics and processes
of student government. Nearly all students are ignor-
ant of the procedure of their campus elections and,
of course, manifest not the slightest interest in the'
results. Campus political parties have never ac-
tempted to issue anything more than the sketchiest
policy. They have been too afraid that they mightj
compromise themselves.
Secondly, the student legislative body-the student
council-has a membership which is not truly repre-
sentative. While members of the student council
have proved themselves willing and capable of hand-'
ling student affairs, they have not had much to do
because they were not in close touch with student
problems other than those which appeared in their

Capone cnd '
Chicago
A L CAPONE has gone to prison. In refusing
to review his case, the Supreme court has put
an end, temporarily it is sure, and permanently it
is hoped, to the career of the most colorful crrn-
inal America has known since the days of Jesse
James.
But in order that this highly gratifying result
may be perpetuated it will be necessary for the
city of Chicago to adopt a drastically different';
attitude toward law enforcement than she has held
in the past. It is a matter of everlasting disgrace
to Chicago that she allowed herself to become so
involved in foul leaguery with a power which
could never be aught but her enemy that outside
fortes had to come in to break the spell. It is
fortunate that the federal authorities proved them-
selves equal to the occasion; but the very fact that
their conviction was secured on the technicality of
an income-tax evasion--the only score on which
they could touch him-while thousands of out-
rages to good government and law and order and
decency from the-same source remain unpunished
because Chicago's self-tied hands cannot be lifted,
is irony of the grimmest sort.
The closing of Atlanta's doors upon Capone
will not end the problem. As long as there are
laws there will be criminals, and as long as there
are laws which are profitable to violate there will
be organized violation of them. Utopian condi-
tions are unattainable in our society. Even the
blase and similarly-contaminated neighbors, how-
ever, have been shocked by the Faust-like abandon
with which Chicago sold herself to the devil. It is
hard to assemble a greater list of political racket-
eers and infamous characters than the names
which have figured most prominently in Chicago
politics during the past five years.
If Chicago will rid herself of the octopus which
is now entwined throughout her commercial and
civic body she must resolutely expel every office-
holder in league with the underworld, establish a
non-partisan police force which shall have for its
objective the suppression.of crime rather than the
serving of political interests, and prove to crim-
inals and citizens alike that she intends to be
master of the situation from now on. If not, Al
Capone m:ght well have been left free, for he had
a few good points which his successor might lack.
SCREEN ]EWLECONS
AT THE MICHIGAN
If you have any kind of a memory at all you will
recall a picture of a month ago called "Lady With a
Past" in which Constance Bennett is an innocent
sweet young thing who goes to Paris to acquire a
spicy reputation in order to impress the boys back
home. For no good reason at all the Michigan Thea-
tre has imported a new picture for Wednesday instead
of Thursday, and for no good reason at all the pic-
ture is entitled "The Careless Lady." It might be
called anything from "One Hour With You" to
"Lovers Courageous," with equal appropriateness.
Strangely enough, Joan Bennett, who features in the

THE SPANISH PLAYS
A Review
by Prof. Nelson W. Eddy
The enthusiastic reception accorded two Spanish
one-act plays presented in Mimes Theatre the eve-
ning of May 3, is distinctly an encouragement for
the presentation of similar plays in that language in,
years to come. Spanish societies desiring to produce
plays are particularly fortunate in having such sure-
fire contemporary dramatists as Martinez Sierra and
the Quintero brothers to draw upon. The former is
best known in this country through the New York
production of Cradle Song a few years ago, and its
inclusion, in English translation, by Burns Mantle in
his annual selection of the ten best plays of the
current Broadway season. The Quintero brothers
are less famous on this side of the ocean, although in
the recent past Otis Skinner went on tour in a play
of theirs, Papa Juan, and a couple of their plays have
been given a performance by Eva LeGallienne
The present Quintero play, Sin Palabras, is typ-
ically buoyant and mellow. Alfred Gold, '34, as the
romantic lover of facile tongue and quick wit, assured
the success of the play from the moment of his
first appearance. Prior to his arrival, things had
been wabbling unsteadily, due largely to poor manip-
ulation of the part of Don Jesus. The latter is created.
as an old doddering family servant, blundering, un-
imaginative, habitually a half block behind the
procession of which he is nominally a figure. The
role is one which the Quintero brothers are past
masters in creating, and the gaucheries of such inept
zanies account for a great part of the high popularity
of the' playwrights in their own country. The rich
juices of humor which are implicit in every line of
the part fizzed into nothingness, instead of seasoning
the play with that quaint drollery which is part and
oarcel of the Quintero armamentarium, because the
actor spoke his lines with machine-gun rapidity,
instead of with the baffled, wondering, plodding
slowness which is obviously intended. The part was
fundamentaly mistimed and misinterpreted, and
:onstituted the only serious blemish of an otherwise
enjoyable occasion. The housekeeper was vividly
played by Muriel Easley, '32. Vivien Caplin, '32, the
heroine, looked the part of a Spanish senorita, and
acted with great animation and an evident liking
for the part. Nervousness was no doubt responsible
for a certain tenseness, and for frequent lapses in
the handling of the Spanish language due to an
attempt at a rapidity clearly beyond the speaker's
powers. By far her best work was in the scene con-
ducted in pantomime, in which the actress was for
the nonce miming the part of one bereft of speech.
The Martinez Sierra play, Rosiina es Fragil, car-
ried across to the audience in excellent sty;. The
brunt of the burden was carried on the slim should
ers of Marion Schmidt, '33, as Rosna, whose perfect
memorization of the foreign-language script and
Expressive reading of her lines kept the play together
and in motion at all times. Alfred Gold was again
a pillar of strength in a part very similar to the
one he took in the first play. Hi excellent poise
pleasing stage presence and authentic Spanish pro-
nunciation, gave stability to both of the plays. The
outstanding characterization of the evening wa
offered by Louise Karpinski, grad., in the role of
Rosina's mother. The easy, nonchalant easualness
witt which she conveyed to the audience the exac
weight of each element of her too-infrequent speeches,
and her perfect comprehension of the overtones of
her lines, made the part a joy to the ear. John
Rishell, '33, supported her nicely in the part of the
father. He had a fat comedy role, and would have
been very funny even without the drooping mous-
taches. Jane Robinson, '35, made five minutes pass
rapidly in her one appearance, when she was out to
do no good to the flirt who had stolen away her
sweetheart. She received the heartiest and mos
spontaneous round of applause of the evening for her
spirited work. Incidentally, she is the first Spanish
II student in the history of Spanish plays here, ever
to be entrusted with any activity greater than man-
aging a tray of beer-glasses, or donging a cowbell in
the meadows off-stage. Frederick Smoot, '35, apeared
