Prof. Vedder said.
If such a system of punishment
were put in effect a man, after
his first conviction, would be on
probation, during which time he
would have to report to authori-
ties regarding his activities every
month, Prof. Vedder continued.
The man would also be required
to make restitution to the vic-
During this period of probation,
the convicted man could keep on
at his job, remain with his fam-
ily and in touch with the reality
of life, Prof. Vedder said.
This approach would save the
taxpayers a large amount of
money, and would have no detri-
mental effect on the character
of the convicted law-breaker,
Prof. Vedder declaiied. Blocking
the way of adherents to this rela-
tively recent theory of criminol-
ogy, are the mores of our culture
which stress punishment.

Invited To Smoker
The Michigan Union, ridiculous
as it may sound, needs men.
The Union has issued a call to
all eligible freshmen and sopho-
mores interested in becoming
spokes in the "Hub of the Michi-
gan Campus" to attend a smoker
at 8:30 p.m. today in Rm. 316.
There they will hear of the ad-
vantages of participating in the
various Union committees.
According to Richard Hitt, pub-
licity chairman, there are open-
ings for men on all five commit-
tees: social, campus affairs, pub-
licity, administration, and house.
"By offering their services to the
committees, men can gain valu-
able experience and receive many
benefits at the same time," he
Hitt* listed typical functions of
the different committees. The
social committee organizes and
conducts many important campus
activities, such as dances, among
which the Union Formal is prom-
inent. Fishing trips, skiing jaunts,
and coffee hours are sponsored by
the campus affairs committee.
Experience in poster design and
other publicity procedures may
be obtained while serving on the
publicity committee. Students
working on the administration
committee can gain valuable of-
fice experience. "Campus Quart-
er," conducted by the house com-
mittee, gives students experience
in radio work.
Participants in all committees
will have the opportunity of work-
ing on Michigras, the aninual cam-
pus carnival sponsored by the Un-
ion in conjunction with WAA.
The smoker will feature infor-
mal discussions of Union activi-
ties and give tryouts a chance to
get acquainted. Cokes and dough-
nuts will be served.
