Prisons and Prisoners
“Book" Lawton, writer and philo.
. sopher, of Clay Center, Kansas, has
* written such a strong editorial on,
“Capitol Punishment, Like Capitol
Cr..-net is Wrong.’ that I am repro_
ducing it herewith ia full,
“Owr civilization hangs in thi
j balance! Our ideals are dreams that
can never be realized through de_
crees, hanging scaffolds, nor electric
chairs. The restraint, lies deeper than
law, or any contemplated law. The
hand of the law, however severe, does
not reach deep into one’s conscience
and remove the cause of any natural
or habitual desire It rather intensi_
fies the craving by its restraint Af_
ter centuries of dungeons, prisons,
guillotines, firing squads, hanging
scaffolds, and electric chairs, we still
have “the master criminal ” More
base, more cunning, more intelligent
Outwitting the law; because he is
born to the end of beating it. How
few are persons born, if any, with the
inherent desire to respect purely leg_
islative laws; in the face of penalties
for their transgression.
“First, crimes are conceived in
thought; stamped indellibly on one’s
conscience, transmitted to the off_
spring that develops the negative
restrained in the parent, and the
brutal criminal, preconceived in I
vengeful thought; is a reality Re_
spect for law, rests not on the sev_
erity of its punishment, which is vio_
latable; but on the institution of
ideals, which if perfected are inviol.
able; because virtue begets virtue,
which cannot transgress nor consume
its (own) perfect state; for they are
(one) inseparable How then, can the
pre-uniption that capitol punishment
is right; countermand the violation of |
human life, with a second act; that
compounds the first.
“The false patriotism instilled in
millions during the world war; that
it was noble to die for one’s country,
or the desire to kill; which was drill.

is also, tn? truth of too many need,
less laws, city, county and state. Peo.
pie are being hemmed in too closely.
Liberally speaki/ig. .Like Japan,-they
want some personal latitude that
they may draw their breath, without
being stiffled or regulated.
“Law is to blame in many cases for
the quantity of criminals that are
foisted upon the public. It guapaotees ■
Life, Liberty and^ the pursuit of
Happiness — and adds, “by the due
process of law.” Then, what is due

life, will be as inherent in the off.

conscience that we suffer the ills of
folly; know transgression by its con.

for retribution. It is through con.
science, that we climb toward the
perfection of an ideal; not through
prisons and scaffolds. They are only
splints that we try to bind broken
hearts, and broken character with.
“The application of criminal law is
founded on forae. It is something
without a conscience to be merciful.

morally they are wrong. Through
right living, we can overcome the

(For Th eLiterary Service Bureau)
Under th** old code impudence was
Znot confined to “talking back”, “dis.
puting my word” and “contradicting
me”; but it was impudence to “roll
your eves”, “raise your voice”, “drop
j your lip”. You were not allowed to
i “crook your finger.” A mother
I whipped her little girl then stormed
1 “If you just crook your finger, I’ll
whip you again.” The child taking
it literally, hid behind the house and
vigorously “crooked her finger,” mut.
. tering,” I’ll crook my finger just as
much as I please.” But she was out
• of sight and out of hearing.
Perhaps these were extreme views
and extreme measures, but they in.
-rilled respect for parents and exert,
ed helpful influence. Call it “repres.
, sion” if you choose, but it beat the
j impudent, unmannered “expression”
I of this age. Then a child who deals
thus with its own parents will be dis.
1 respectful to others and will lose
emuch, thereby.

Washington, Aug.— Vigorous ob_

interests in that country, to its pres_

an American financial adviser to the ,
sending of an American white South,

and to the allege!! American dictation
of a Liberian budget which makes no
allowance for public education, was
voiced here Monday at the State de_
partmnt by a delegation of white and
colored citizens for which Dr. W. E.
B. DuBois, editor of The Crisis, was
The delegation charged that the
Firestone loan of $2,500,000 to Lib_
eria was fraudulent and was based
upon the use of slave labor. It
charged also that the United States!
is trying to negotiate a new agree.1
ment between Liberia and Firestone
which will put the small nation fur. |
ther in debt. The delegation also
urged that Liberia be given time to |
consider the whole matter and not be 1
subjected to the ultimatum already
sent (which the State department de_ 1
nies) demanding acquiescence by
September 1, 1933.
The sending of General Blanton;
Winship, a white Southerner, to ob_
serve in Liberia caused some sharp l
exchanges between Dr. DuBois and
William Phillips, assistant secretary
..of state, who received the delegation,
and between Mr. Phillips and Dr.
Mordecai Johnson and Miss Dorothy
Detzer. Finally, just before the dele,
gation left, Dr. DuBois suggested it
would have been much wiser to have
1 sent a colored American instead of
I General Winship. Mr. Phillips re.
“Yes, it might have been wiser.” i
The conference lasted an hour and
fifteen minutes. The delegation: Dr.
DuBois, Dr. Johnson, Miss Dorothy

You can’t have prejudice, without, at the same time,
having hate and fear and selfishness.
We only rise above and out of prejudice when we rise
above and out of the thoughts and suggestions which
cause prejudice. We then clear our minds of the belief
in prejudice, hate and fear. Moral: Destroy the cause
of prejudice and you destroy the effect of that cause.
Jim Crow must go, sometime, somehow, why not, today?
Let’s you and I make America,just a little better by daily
preaching and practicing it. Prejudice is built on fear
selfishness and ignorance.
Be it resolved, for this year and all other years,
that I will face unpopularity for the sake of truth; I
will declare boldly my convictions though they make me
despised; I will cleanse my heart from all selfishness to
the end that the will of mankind’s common Father may be
more fully expressed through my life.” Let this be a lesson
to you.
