Accomiplishrnents Of
The Naval Conference...
T HE NAVAL CONFERENCE and the
meeting of the Council of the
League of'Nations were both concluded last week
in London. The results of the latter were admit-
edly negligible, but the members of the Naval Con-
ference claimed to have accomplished something
of value. The American delegation returned "sat-
isfied," and Secretary of State Hull was "pleased"
with their work. Now that the rejoicing is ended,
it is of interest to see just what has been accomp-
lished.
The pact drawn up at the Conference creates, in
brief, qualitative limitations of navies. What it
limits is the size of ships which may be built,
and the size of guns which may be used on these
ships. In this it differs greatly from the Wash-
ington treaty of 1922 and the London pact of 1930,
both of which limited the numerical size of navies,
or at least attempted to do so. This lack of limi-
tation is one of the great weaknesses in the new
pact, for it puts the construction of larger navies
at the discretion of governmental leaders and the
financial resources of the various powers.
Still another important weakness in the treaty
is the end of the prohibition of fortification of the
Pacific Islands. This fault carries a particular
significance for the United States, for it shows the
lack of a clear-cut policy in regard to Far Eastern
problems, while the terms of the pact itself make
necessary such a policy. If the present General
Board policy of the Navy to protect commmercial
interests by force is to be continued-and there
is now nothing to restrain it - the new pact con-i
tains a very dangerous solution for our Far East-
ern dilemma. If, on the other hand, the policy
of defense against invasion were to be the founda-
tion of our policy, a peaceable solution for our
relations with Japan can be accomplished.
Japan and Italy have refused to subscribe to
the pact, creating a double menace to world peace.
The fact that they have refused to sign the pact
has drawn the United States and Great Britain
close together in what amounts almost to an un-
official alliance, with France forming the third
corner of the powerful triangle. Japan and Italy,
observing this unity, which is of itself dangerous,
will naturally feel that they must build larger
navies for their own defense, thus creating more
international enmity.
In spite of the fact that Secretary Hull found
the pact satisfactory, and in spite of the fact
that the agreement will very likely be ratified
by the Senate, it can accomplish very little good
and a great deal of harm. It is not difficult
to sympathize with Chancellor Hitler when he

begged the peoples of the world in a speech last
week to "Make peace. Do not talk of gestures."
Causes
OROF. HOWARD Y. McCLUSKY of
f the School of Education, speaking
before the Law Enforcement Institute Tuesday,
advanced the generally accepted and well-substan-
tiated belief that "criminals are made, not born,"
and that inadequate recreational facilities, broken
homes, and "the gang influence" all contribute to
increase crime by youth.
As a remedial measure Professor McClusky urges
the adoption of the methods used in New Jersey.
In that state, he reports, arrest of young persons
is avoided in favor of a plan of crime preven-
tion whereby officers live in crime-breeding areas,
become friends of the youth of the district, know
its activities, and are thus able effectively to fore-

ing the forces which breed it, will do more than
a little to improve conditions.
The procedure is similar, if an analogy will be
permitted, to the frantic housewife's effort to swat
all the flies in mid-summer after having left a
back-yard garbage pile unmolested in June.
Crimes are committed for the greatest variety
of reasons, and yet it is safe to say that most
of them find their origin in economic conditions.
As Professor McClusky points out, the areas from
which potential law-breakers come are not dif-
ficult to define. They are the areas of poverty.
It is ridiculous to say that man, or some men,
commit crime instinctively. The causes may
be scientifically traced, and the investigator is
sure to find poverty and the corollaries of poverty
at the end of his trail. The New Jersey plan is an
excellent forwardhstep in crime control, but one
must not lose sight of the fact that more than a
change in law enforcement methods is needed
- a fundamental change in the economic condi-
tion of a great proportion of the population must
be the goal, however distant it may appear.
As Others See It
The Beauty Of War
(The following article is from ,an Italian
newspaper, "L Stampa," published at Turin.
--M. Levi.)
RISING against the traditional traducers of mod-
ern war who declare it to be an antiesthetic,
we futurist poets and artist, who have recognized
it for twenty-seven years as the "only world hy-
giene," proclaim that:
1. War is beautiful because it fuses in harmony
Strength and Kindness.
2. War is beautiful because it realizes the per-
ifet mechanized man - thanks to the gas-mask,
the terrifying megaphone, flame throwers and the
litile tank, and completes the domination of man
over his slave, the machine.
3. War is beautiful because it realizes the long-
dreamed of "metalization" of the human body.
4. War is beautiful because it "symphonizes"
fusillades, cannonades, pauses choked by silence,
and the perfumes and odors of putrefaction.
5. War is beautiful because it completes the
beauty of a flowery meadow with the passionate
orchids of machine-gun fire.
6. War is beautiful because it genially remoulds
the terrestrial and marine landscapes with its
inspired artillery.
7. War is beautiful because it creates new ar-
chitectures, as the heavy tanks. It creates the
flying geometries of the aeroplane, the spiral smoke
of burning villages, etc.
8. War is beautiful because it sometimes sur-
passes in violence, enthusiasm and lyrical grandeur
the terrestrial cataclysms and combats of the
demons and angels.
9. War is beautiful because it definitely cures
men of individual fear and collective panic through
its refinement and stylization of heroism.
Future poets and artists . . . about to enter the
fray, remember the principles of the esthetics of
war. They should enlighten you in your efforts
and enable you to extract new poetry and new
plastic works from the heroism you offer to the
Future.

The Conning Tower
HOW TO HAVE A FLOOD
You scoff the day after a heavy rain, when folks
tell you excitedly the river has risen four feet
again. You remind them that after every hur-
ricane, every snow storm, every flood, there are
predictions of worse disasters to follow.
You notice in the evening the water really is
rising, but ascertain the rise is only four inches an
hour, and that it will require twelve feet to cause
damage. You just know the river will not rise
more than three or four.
Two hours later you take another look at the
river. It comes within a foot of the road. You
reflect that were it not for last week's flood, the
present stage might be worth thinking about.
You get home at midnight, and see the water
licking across the road, reaching out tentative
fingers to caress heel marks in the soft mud. You
look out at the stream and see it rushing by, sil-
ently, massively, with express train speed and ma-
lign intensity.
You ascertain the rise still is four inches an
hour. You call Wilkes-Barre, fifty miles upstream,
and learn it will continue to rise there until the
next day.
You look at Mahoning Creek and Sechler's Run,
and discover, with something like horror, they are
higher than last week, but unlike last week, when
they poured into an empty river, are rushing head-
long toward a river bank-full, through country so
saturated it cannot absorb another drop of rain.
Suddenly you know you are in for Trouble.
You decide to remain up all night. Gentle
small waves are coming in steadily from midstream,
rolling softly across the road, and you jump sud-
denly as you feel water above your rubbers, which
a moment before stood on dry ground.
The water is creeping across your lawn, filling
in hollows around the shrubbery, making the sod
squashy. You walk around the house and dis-
cover there is a constantly narrowing width of
ground. A level sweep of water stretches away
on every hand. You are owner of an island, mon-
arch of all you survey.
You go into the cellar and find water bubbling
up through the cement floor, squirting through
the solid concrete wall because of the pressure be-
hind it. When you come outside again you make
a mental note that when the water rises another
half inch it will pour through the cellar windows,
make a Niagara of the cellar stairs, and even as
you think of it, it happens.
Frenziedly, you rake the fire into the ash pit of
the furnace, and hear it hiss and snap in the water.
The flood is creeping up the outside walls, an inch
every ten minutes. You rush upstairs and start
to carry furniture toward the second floor. Within
a few minutes a half dozen neighbors from adja-
cent high ground are assisting you in your frantic
efforts.
The water only a short time ago was assailing
the bottom front porch step. You open the door
and the familiar gentle wave slaps across the sill.
Panic-stricken, you close the door and walk
through the hall, your feet splashing in a half
inch of water by the time you have reached the
back door. A neighbor is there with a boat. You
step off the porch into the boat, leaving the house
which was a home a few hours ago, which is now
a. landmark in a wilderness of water. You dis-
embark a block away and take one last look be-
hind. Your house stands, forlorn and reproachful,
in a raging sea of muddy water and wildly tossing
driftwood. REED McCARTY.

A Washington
BYSTANDE R
By KIRKE SIMPSON
WASHINGTON, April 1. - If the
gloomy forebodings of Secretary
Wallace should be realized and a new
flood of crop surpluses inundate the
farm markets before election time, a
factor of unguessable force would be
thrown into the political pot.
What would be the reaction at the
polls in the farm belt to $5 hogs,
which Wallace says is a certainty in
1938 anyhow; or to wheat and corn
prices tumbling under the weight of
piling carryovers?
The Wallace '38 hog prediction
compares with a five year average of
$7.22 and a $9.34 price in February
this year, or 24 cents above parity
for the month. The corresponding
figures for wheat were 88.4 cents for
the five year average and a February
price of 91.9 against a 111.4 parity;
for corn, a 64.2 cent five year average
and a February price of 55.5 against
89.00 parity.
'TALLACE declines to even guess
where prices may go in case
farmer cooperation in the soil con-
servation substitute for the fallen
AAA crop control system is not very
complete.
It is understandable that the sec-
retary and his aides are doing every-
thing in their power to induce co-
operation in the AAA substitute pro-
gram. Painting the alternative pros-
pects in darkest colors is a well rec-
ognized device to such an end.
Yet Wallace is blunt in saying that
the new act came too late to affect
the hog-corn situation he foresees
for next year or to restrict winter
wheat planting. For the wheat sit-
uation the only hope he sees is the
cumulative effect of storm damage
to winter wheat and intensive co-
operation in spring planting with the
soil conservation program.
Q UITE clearly the farm voters bid
fair to be in a position of look-
ing back yearningly to AAA days at
about the time they are also weigh-
ing the proposals in their behalf of
the two major party platforms and
the words of the presidential nomi-
nees.
If the Wallace outlook as to. what
may happen is confirmed by the 1936
party conventions, it could make a
great difference in the nature of the
election battle to follow. If the ef-
fort to induce cooperation in the soil
conservation 'indirect method of crop
control fails of substantial support
it would seem even possible that a
farmer demand for a constitutional
amendment approach to the problen
might take shape at Philadelphia.
It certainly is hardly to be expected
at the Republican show in Cleveland.
Yet at this moment there is no sign
of a specific constitutional change
issue, much as will be said on the
subject by new deal foes.

Apparatus Exchange: The Regents
at their meeting in March, 1927, au-
thorized an arrangement for the sale
of scientific apparatus by one depart-
ment to another, the proceeds of the
sale to be credited to the budget ac-
count of the department from which
the apparatus is transferred.
Departments having apparatus
which is not in active use are advised
to send descriptions thereof to the
University Chemistry Store, of which
Prof. R. J. Carney is director. The
Chemistry Store headquarters are in
Room 223, Chemistry Building. An
effort will be made to sell the appara-
tus to other departments which are
likely to be able to use it. In some
instances the apparatus may be sent
to the University Chemistry Store on
consignment, and, if it is not sold
within a reasonable time, it will be
returned to the department from
which it was received.
The object of this arrangement is
to promote economy by reducing the
amount of unused apparatus. It is
hoped that departments having such
apparatus will realize the advantage
to themselves and to the University
in availing themselves of this oppor-
tunity. Shirley W. Smith.

Speech Of Senator Abel Chermont
In The Permanent Sessio n Of The Brazilian Senate

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following excerpts from the
speech of Abel Chermont, Senator from the State
of Para, are from the "News You Don't Get" bulle-
tins of the Natloanal Committee for the Defense of
Political Prisoners, of New York. They were trans-
lated from the March 4, 1936 edition of the newspaper
The Impartial" published in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The entire edition of the newspaper was confiscated
by the police when it was discovered that Sr. Cher-
mont's speech had been printed.
Sr. Abel Chermont: Senor President: For 100
days the Brazilian people have suffered the ef-
fects of the State of Siege which will go down in
history as a deplorable action by those responsible
fort the horrors now being committed. Never
have the people been so deliberately misled. Never
have so many crimes and so much violence been
committed in the shadow of the suspension of con-
stitutional guarantees.
These are days of absolute insecurity! A simple
telephone denunciation, and the unhappy victim,
even without questioning, must expiate a crime
he did not commit. The faintest suspicion is
enough for a citizen to be pitilessly beaten to
force him to confess "secrets" which the police
attribute to his knowledge.
Your Excellency knows, as every Senator knows,
that the person of the prisoner is inviolate, even
in wars, To torture a helpless prisoner is illegal,
criminal, an inhumanity committed only by people
who have a deformed morality.
However, to the shame of our country, Your
Excellency, the police have savagely beaten a
great number of people who have fallen into their
hands, persons accused of political crimes.
And the barbarity used does not end with tor-
tures and beatings. The preventive repression of
the police exceeds this. Captain Jose de Medeiros,
after being arrested by the police, was found dead
in the Vista Chineza (a section in the heart of
Rio de Janeiro -- Trans.). His hands and feet
were broken and crushed. Twenty-three wounds
from bullets of different calibers were found in
his body. He lay in the same place where, some

of Parana, Octavio da Salveira, sent the following
telegram to the President of the Republic: (Ge-
tulio Vargas - Trans.):
"Senor President of the Republic: As a federal
deputy and one of the first who took up arms in
1930 with Captain Joao Alberto for the establish-
ment of a Free Brazil, I wish to inform you that
the Brazilian citizens, Adalberto Fernandes and
Clovis Araujo Liba, arrested more than 30 days
ago as extremists, are being barbarously tortured,
the latter so severely that he has been placed in a
hospital. I have reliable information about these
two, and also about the soldier, Abesguardo Mar-
tins, who was beaten to death by the Special Police.
I bring these facts to your knowledge feeling sure
that you do not support these deeds and will not
permit such crimes to occur under your government
and with your knowledge, and I feel sure that
you will act in time so that the above-mentioned
prisoners will not be found dead tomorrow in the
Vista Chineza, as happened with Captain Augusto
Madeiros, whose unpunished murder demands jus-
tice. Signed: Octavio da Salveira, Rio De Janerio,
Feb. 11, 1935."
It is precisely to expunge these crimes and to
prevent their continuation that I am using this
tribune in the name of my moral and political
responsibility, and as a member of a Government
Institution to whom the Brazilian Constitution
charges in Article 88 with the duty of "defending
the Constitution."
I am certain that the senate will not refuse my
petition (for a Commission of Investigation -
Trans.). The most interested in the clarification
of these crimes of the authorities is the Govern-
ment itself, which is responsible for them and
against whom accusations are made. These accu-
sations are not only found in the newspapers -
in spite of the censorship - but they are now
placed before the eyes of the President of the Re-
public as in the telegram sent him by Deputy
