get down to business say authorities "on the hill."
Taxes and big banker ways of escaping them are
not the business of the banking committee. That
field is pre-empted by Senator Pat Harrison's
finance committee under senate rules.
' K .
THAT PROJECTED MOVE
HOUSE-HUNTING activities of the New York
stock exchange in New Jersey were of part-
icular interest in Washington for this reason.
The banking committee is bound to investigate
that effort to escape impending new municipal
taxes. It has implications in connections with
any plan for direct Federal regulation of the ex-
change to prevent speculative orgies.
If the exchange could escape New York City
taxation emergencies by moving to New Jersey,
could it get from under heavy-handed Federal
regulation by moving to Canada? Fletcher's com-
mittee will want to explore that point.

Of Rushing Rules...
URING the past few days it has
been made clear that rushing rules
cannot be enforced if violations are not reported.
", ince non-enforcement would work untold had-
ship on the fraternities who comply, it is obvious
that the general interest of all fraternities will
be best served through prompt disclosure of all
To report a violation is unpleasant. No house
relishes the thought of turning in the name of a
competing house which it feels has broken the
rules. No rushee desires to report a guilty group.
Yet it is only through such information that un-
fair competition can be stamped out.
This being the case, it is highly reassuring to
discover that accounts of transgressions are being
laid before the proper authorities, Guilt has been
proved in one case, and a penalty pronounced.
The ice has been broken. Every house on campus
is now aware that it will be dangerous not to act
according to Hoyle. The most immediate result
of what has been done is the virtual guarantee
that the most important rule of rushing -no
contact between freshmen and fraternities during
the silence period - will not be broken.
There are many who believe the penalty meted
Monday night by the judiciary committee was not
nearly as severe as it should have been. To give
a rushee av pledge pin is a plain infringement of
the central rule of the present system. Whether
or not a stronger punishment should have been
decided upon, it is safe to assume that the com-
mittee viewed the matter as an initial offense,
and is prepared to act more harshly with future
When the present rules were adopted, campus
honor societies were unanimous in agreeing to
support them in every way, including the encour-
agement of reports of violations. It is to be ex-
pected that these groups will come to the fore in
the attempt to insure compliance.
One does not have to believe that the present
rules are the best ones possible in order to agree
that they must be enforced. The point is that
the fraternities themselves adopted them, and
promised to abide by them. A house that refuses
to live up to its promise is given a decided ad-
vantage in lining up a good freshman class-
would be given an advantage, that is, if the rules
were not enforced. After the rushing period is
over, the fraternities may amend the regulations.
The time to change the rules is not in the middle
of the time to which they apply.
ANOTHER TEXAS LEADER?
THERE are suggestions already that Texas will
reach out to regain its dominant position in
house leadership enjoyed before Jack Garner
regretfully bade the house goodbye and became
The state has a veteran to offer for high house
honors in the person of Sam Rayburn with 11
consecutive terms to his credit. And Sam is des-
cribed as looking longingly toward a speakership
of his own at no distant date.
IT IS intimated that the so-called Democratic-in
surgent coalition in the house which put Speak-
er Rainey and Majority Leader Joe Byrns of Ten-
nessee into power is in process of disintegration.
There is also the question of whom the White
House will turn to as chief house lieutenant in
the next session, certain to be less of a Roosevelt
love feast than was the special session. Rayburn
has attracted the attention of a number of influ-
ential House advisers.
Assuming that Garner Intends to retire perma-
nently to the private joys of Uvalde, Texas, at the
end of his present presidential term-and that
looms not as an assumption, but a fact - Rayburn
could seek the speakership without any very
serious reaction against too-much-Texas among
his house colleagues.
Four stars means extraordinary; three stars edfinitely
recommended; two stars, average; one star, inferior;
no stars, stay away from it.
AT THE MAJESTIC
A DOUBLE FEATURE
***"THE MAYOR OF HELL"
Patsy. . . . . .................. James Cagney
Dorothy ....................Madge Evans
Jim............. ...........Frankie Darro
Thompson ....................Dudley Digges
You will find "The Mayor of Hell" to your
Cagney as a tough ward-heeler and Frankie
Darro as a juvenile incorrigible are the nucleus
of a cast well chosen to present this first of what
will probably prove to be another Hollywood cycle
with the delinquency of adolescents as the theme.
In "The Mayor of Hell" the evidence gainst the
old style penal institution for youths o Jim's type
is presented in a forceful manner, with emphasis
on the contrast which is possible when humane
methods are introduced.
Before a political boss gives Cagney his job as
deputyrcommissioner of a certain reform school,
the school is in the corrupt and tyrannical hands
of a bloated overseer (Dudley Digges) who fol-
lows the old adage of "spare the rod and spoil the
(delinquent) child" to a T. It is a role made to
order for the fine abilities of Mr. Digges, who adds
his success in the role of Thompson to scores of
others gained in movies that sometimes could
boast of no other redeeming feature than his
presence. The downfall of Thompson after he
causes the death of a consumptive inmate of the
school is accomplished under kerosene-soaked
torches carried by the boys he has beaten down -
the boys this time sitting as a "supreme court"
trying the case of "The People vs. Thompson."
Cagney and Madge Evans are almost totally
submerged in the wake of the fine portrayals of
the reform schoolers by Frankie Darro, the boy
who is "Butch," Farina, and many others.
Best scenes: Digges registering outraged in-
nocence, wrath, suspicion, or slyness.
Added attraction: Hearst Metrotone News.
Gigolo........ ..............Jack LaRue
Here is a mystery drama with the high seas
as a setting. One Mr. Kreig, lately of New York
City and Wall Street, finds it expedient to board
his yacht with sundry guests when he learns that
the police, via the grand jury route, are hot on
his trail. With Kreig are a very beautiful blonde
(Shirley Grey), her lover, a financier and his un-
faithful wife, a dark-haired piano-player, and a
steward (Charlie Ruggles) who finds everything
to his liking except the cross-eyed sailor, a black
cat, a Friday the 13th embarking, broken mir-
rors, 26 murders, and a suicide.
It's slow at times, but scary.

If his case follows a normal course, Van Lan-
deghem will go to prison for about 15 years. There
he will live in security, wifh no domestic or family
problems to solve. He will be housed in warm,
sanitary quarters, fed in first-rate style, clothed
and given medical attention at state expense. He
will have light, simple work to do, and his oppor-
tunities for recreation will be extensive. There
will be books, magazines and newspapers to read,
games such as baseball to play if he chooses, and
opportunities to engage in choral singing, attend
vaudeville and musical performances, motion pic-
ture shows and similar entertainments. Van Lan-
deghem will lead a healthful, fairly comfortable
and a safe existence, with little to worry about
unless he succumbs to remorse. The chief thing
he will be deprived of will be his liberty, but to
some types of men liberty is a burden rather than
This prospect falls far short of the kind of pun-
ishment necessary if a prison term is to be an ef-
fective deterrent to crime. To many men there is
little that is appalling about such a life. It may
even seem preferable, to some, than life outside.
