The Passing Show

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
' 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.
Anything Goes

many favorable comments from

sprung together only recently, with
a bit more practice, it has good
possibilities . . . their 4-sax section
is quite an innovation in this neck
of the woods, and Don Edwards

practically completed, it will not be
shown till autumn, in line with
Hollywood’s traditional policy of
never releasing a real big film job
during the dull summer months
. . . among other changes Rein

the total elimination of all color
sequences, for he believes it should
be all or nothing, and spotting it
with color tends to jolt the au

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.
