FOSTER IMPLICATED
Lansing, Mich., Dec. lo.-(By A.P.
.-Charles E. Ruthenberg, secreta r
+pvf the workers party and prominen
member of the communist party -o
America was held guilty of violatio
of the Michigan syndicalism act b
the state supreme court today. lR
was originally convicted1 in the lBer
ribn county court, following his ar
i'st in the famous raid of the federa
andl local officers on the secret con
vention of the communists at Bridge
man, Berrien county in August 1922
Ti Ee promptly appealed from the de-
cision of the circuit court, and has
S been at liberty since under bond. Ad
visedl that the supreme court had a-
ffirmed his conviction, Ruthenberg
who is in Chicago, indicatedl that h(e
will carry the case on to the sprene
y, court of the Unitedl States.
W. L. Foster, who was the presi-
(ential canidate of the workers
p iarty in the last election red Ben
V Giplow, his running mate, were others
-tmong those arraigned in the Berrien
rd. ;poster was tried b)ut the jury
to~lisagreed. lie probably will be re-
tried and Giplow, Rose Pastor Stokes,
Sand~ many o~hr communists who
* were indicted following the raid, but
P;%ver tried, may be brought into court
as a rsult of today's decision.
The opinion upholding the circuit
court conviction was written by .us-
tiie Howard Wiest, and concurredl in
unanimously by the entire bench. It
heldl that the state had the right to
enact such laws as the syndicalsmi
act to defend itself; that the act is
constitutional and that Ruthenerg's
blea that he was arrested andl his
documients seized illegally, was incor-
rect. The court ruled that the ofic-
er's who raidled the Bridgeman mieet -
iug were within their rights in sez-
ing the portfolios and barrels of (1ocu-
rnents offered in evidence, because
/1 ey were directly related to the com-
mission of crimes by uthnberg.
Trhe d(ecision took a biting flin; at
Ruthenberg and the communist party,
describing theme as the "redl thread of
Russian communism," aud acc i'sig
there of trying to hide behind t he
laws of the governmlent they seek to
overthrow. It related that delegates
from the third inrtern atonal hiead-
quarters front Moscow, from the Ris-
sian redI tradle internationatl,. tend
front the Hungarian federation ,It-
teride(I the sand(dne con vent ion.
z lie 'efdat voluntarily ssenti-
bled with the other delegates at the
I sridgenian convention is tbcon ur-
1t leader, fpctor and paid oficial.
''Thle (defendant would have us en-
tertain the opinion that he attended
the convention to turn the communist
party from its illegal activities and
constitute it, through a merger wFith
the workers party, and open a legal
]arty. We entertain no such opinion.
Resolutions were adopted t the
B ridgeman mecting thmat the under-
ground, illegal party which is known
asnumber one andl which is the con-
muirist party, must cotinue.
The (defendant was acting under or-
(ters fr'omi Moscow. lie was pledged
*to obey such orders. It taxes credut-
lity too far to believe he was endeav-
oring to bring communist dlotie
.nit tactics within the law Such do-
tr ines, ana(l practice for mulated in

ion of officials of the Building and
Grounds department after two weeks
' of campaigning by that department to
rid the campus of two evils.
Many (logs have been taken by the
department in tihe past two weeks, and
yesterday five were addled to the nuni-
ber. Owners are required1 to pay fifty
cents a dlay to cover feeding costs for
every (lay a log is held by the depart-
metin its "pound.'' UTsetually owners
are prompt in calling, officials say.
A bicycle was taken yesterday from
a boy charged with violation of the
rule prohibiting riding on the walks.'
~'Before inaugurating the policy of
Stemporarily holding bicycles of of-
'~fenders, the department mailed letters
of warning to parents of those charged
with infractions of the rule.
