The Passing Show “CIVIC DEATH” IN NAZIDOM ■^TAZl Germany, the first nation to legalize wholesale sterilization, has decided to try another new experiment with curbing' and punish ment of crime to be known a “civic death." The Peace Built House ! -—— P.v Howard KpkmW I SHALL never forgive the League of Nations. 4 Well, maybe later on; they say time heals all things. It appears to be with wilfully mischievous intent to deceive that they should have their crisis a week after I leave Geneva. Of course, the League has romped or staggered through any number of so-called "crises” in the past but they do not suffer comparison with this, the crisis since Woodrow Wilson (may his soul rest in peace!) opened the first Council meeting in Paris January 16, 1920. This is a truly number one, knock-down-drag-out, plus ultra, deluxe crisis which will probably mark the success or failure of the League as an instrument of world peace. Three great issues head the agenda as the Coun cil goes into a huddle the second week in April. Will the Versailles treaty be torn up? a ques tion brough to a head by German rearmament. What about the Italian-Abysinnian “affair”? And the Gran Chaco war between Boliva and Paraguay which appears to be one of those end less things, like a string of spaghetti ? Well, all this I’ve got to miss. Just now the League is in a state of suspended animation awaiting the big guns of April. As you read this they will be sounding off at Stressa, later at Geneva, and all eyes will be upon the old Swiss hotel that hos housed the League these several years. So keep your eyes glued on the papers, for what the Council does may decide whether Europe will settle itself for peace and prosperity or for a frantic armament race that will recognize no equal and will inevitably end with a "boom”! Casting about for other material, I was not long in discovering that the new Palais des Na tions, under construction since 1929, offered a good story. Here we have an edifice unique in the annals of architecture and construction. Unlike any other building in appearance, the future home of the League has based its effect on mass rather than height. It occupied four acres comparable in dimensions to the Palace of Versailles, on a low hill in Ariena park, overlooking the blue-as blue waters of Lake Geneva with the rugged, rugged mountains of the Alps and Jura ranges for a background. Varying from five to six stories in heighth, it looks more like a hospital than any other type of public building, and analogists may be quick to suggest that a sick League will move in this summer. Quite fitting that this home of international ism should be an international work. When the need for new quarters was first realized in 1927, an international architectural competition was inaugurated, with the ultimate result that the jury awarded nine equal prizes and chose five architects, a Swiss, Italian, Hungarian and two Frenchmen, to act as a committee in conceiving the Palace, so the thing as it stands can be at tributed to five men, complete strangers in 1927, working together and conversing, no doubt, with their hands. But that was not all. After the first stone was laid in 1929, construction was under taken by companies from Switzerland, Italy and France, and workmen were employed from Eng land, Germany and several other countries, so the result will in truth be international. Throughout the period of economic depression work went steadily forward on the $6,000,000 undertaking, in 1933 the roof tree was according to ancient custom, crowned with flowers to com memorate the structural completion; the Swiss government spent. $3,000,000 on fine new roads to the park, and in July of this year the Secretariat will occupy its new offices and the library will be transferred to the new building provided by John D’s $2,000,000 grant. The Assembly hopes to inauguarate its section by the regular session in September. You can, by obtaining a permit from the sec retary of construction, enter the Palace and wan der through the great halls that soon will reecho to the foosteps and voices of representatives from great earthly powers, joined together in solemn conference. Now there is only the rythmic beat of workmen's hammers and a strangely assorted lot of workmen at that. (Continued tomorrow.) According to Judiciary Commissar Hans Frank, who is now drafting the new German Penal code for Reichfuhrer Adolf Hitler at Leip zig, the new category of punishment will reduce the status of the condemned to that of a perma nent outcast. "We are in fact reviving an oil German cus tom, Dr. Frank declared, in pointing out that the ancient Huns had a somewhat similar custom of driving an offender out of the tride to starve or be eaten by wild beasts. From other sections of Nazidom have come suggesions of a like nature. German Justice, the official organ of Dr. Franz Gurtner, minister of justice, recently called for a punishment to be even narsher than the medieval headsman's ax, introduced again in Germany by the Hitler regime. ' Living death," as it is caleld by Judge Gertz in the publication would "entail the impossibility of making wills, exercising of paternal of civil rights, deprivation of nationality, impossibility of engaging in any commercial activity and com plete ostracism, the sentence to be read publicly." The Nazi ax. according to Judge Gertz, has disadvantages "because it may establish a con tinued relationship between the condemned man and the public" martyrdom. There will be many criticisms of the "civic death" clause in the new German Penal code, but it offers to the world a substitute for capital punishment, long the subject of a great deal of 1 discussion in the civilized world. Tn the United States, "civic death" would probably be a failure because of the size of the country and because so many Americans always hasten tit the aid of the underdog. Even John j Dillinger, as Public Enemy No. 1. was able to evade capture for nearly a year after every man. 1 woman, and child in the nation who had access to | a newspaper had been warned against him and shown his picture innumerable times. The United States is large and its people are free from practically all interference of police or ; government authorities. Germany is under Hit ler's thumb and his word is law. "Civic death," if accepted by Nazidom, will be an interesting experiment --The Daily Troian.

Dunn —— r — Latin Prepositions In Meter ‘‘It's your turn this time.” “Naw, I did it day before yester day.” ‘‘You gotta kick this time.” “Not on your life. Let Herm do it.” You would not believe it, but two of those gangsters are Minis ters now, and the third the son of a Minister, who thus framed up complaint against Professor Straub’s lengthy Greek assign ments. They were Jas. A. Laurie, '94, and Frank B. Matthews and Herman A. Kobe, ’95. Writes Jim from his Presbyte rian Church in Cedar Falls, Iowa: —‘‘It didn’t do much good but it was deemed necessary and so some one went through the motions most every day . . . I remember how I would shake when I got up to recite to Straub and Johnson. usea 10 mane me maa, our l couldn’t help it. The Faculty of those days were not such an awe inspiring bunch, but somehow they did the inspiring all right.” Oid grads, however, have told me of one occasion when this in spiration in John Straub’s room was dissipated by a sudden bomb, —the flank attack came so unex pectedly. It was another Minis ter at that. Royal F. Reasoner. '85, was one of the soberest, most unimpas sioned, expressionless students that ever came to the Uhiversity. To day, he would be mill-raced or ducked under the pool, in order to break that imperturbability. But, ,in the smaller student body of those days, since he interfered with no one else, nobody in turn cared to tease him. But Royal was certain ly somber and very introspective. Blasphemers among his fellow stu dents called him ‘‘The second J. ^ C.” which would certainly have wounded him greatly if he had known it. Tutor Straub was then reliev ing President Johnson of the First Year Latin class, when he was as tounded out of all equilibrium to have the Sphinx reak loose with, “Professor, those prepositions rhyme. I can make poetry out of them. I can sing them.” “Why, —• how’s — that?” stut tered John Straub. And Royal began. In order to appreciate the mechanism, you lat er Latinists must forget the Ro man pronunciation, and pronounce “e” as we do double “e’,, and the '.diphthong “ae” also in the same way. I have italicised the accent ed syllables. “A, ab, abs,—absque, de, Coram, palam. cum ex, e Sine, tonus, pro and prae”. Trochaic, catalectic, or whatever it was, it was a hit. Tutor StVaub mumbled something in his beard but it was lost in the applause. Next in the series: HOW TO HOODWINK A PROF.
