The Philanthropic Literary So

aight as being "diametrically op
posed to any law or statute in
'oking capital punishment for any
crime." ' .
With a vote of 20 to 15 the Ph)
voted in favor of a bill stating
'That a program of rehabilita
tion and of punishment by means
ther than death be instituted to
eplace capital punishment."
The topic was introduced by
Harold D. Downing, chairman of
the Ways- and Means Committee.
There were many visitors pres

Stribling, speaking in opposition
to capital punishment, had this to
say about the subject:
"There is no reason for basics

Historically speaking, the tend

of capital punishment does not

Rep. Harold Downing summed
up the arguments for the affirma
tive when he said '"There is a
jreat historical evidence of constantly-increasing
leniency in the
field of criminal punishment and
rehabilitation. Since it is beyond
human reason for one to condemn
another to death, then a system
of rehabilitation, which would in
sure justice, prevent crime to ev

offender, should be instituted."
