Runs Amuck of Red;
Nearly Starts Fight
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 17. - Sixteen
persons were under arrest today as
the result of a series of Coimunist 1
I riots which came to a climax when
a party of Reds invaded city hall
and one of them called Mayor
James J. Walker "a grafting Tam-
many politician and a crook."
An attempt by a group of Com-
munists to present an unemploy-
ment petition at a meeting of the
Board of Estimate over which the
mayor was presiding precipitated
the disturbalice in the city hall.
The fighting in the city hall was
precipitated when Sam Nessin, who
assumed charge of the petitioners
shouted to Mayor Wlker:
"You are a lot of grafting Tam-
many politicians. I would rather
be a member of my working class
than one of your gyafting officials.
You are a grafting Tammany poli-
tician and a crook."
The mayor rose from his seat and
replied, "That little remark prompts
me to come down and thrash the
life out of you."
