Of Student Right
New York Educators Call
Convention To War On
Mayor-Elect's Threats
Sedition Condemned
Many Leading Professors
Sign Call; Ex-Editors Of
College Papers Included
NEW YORK, Nov. 28.-As a result
of controversies between New York
students and college administrations,
a call for a city wide conference on
students' rights to be held in Horace
Mann Auditorium of Teachers' Col-
lege was issued yesterday by a group
of forty professors, educators, pub-
licists, and students. Declaring that
students' rights have been restricted
and that Mayor-elect O'Brien's
"threats against teachers and stu-
dents in municipal institutions who
do not accept his political dogmas
open the way to an intolerable situa-
tion," the signers urge immediate ac-
tion to safeguard freedom of student
speech, assembly, press and political
activity on and off the Campuses.
List Signers
Among the signers of the call are
......Prof. George S. Counts of 'Teachers
College; Principal Jesse H. Newlon of
the Lincoln School, and Dr. Frederick
L. Redefer, Executive Secretary of the
Progressive Education Assn., and Dr.
John Dewey of Columbia. Comment-
ing on the need for the conference,
Dr. Redefer said yesterday:
"If American education is to avoid
sterility and academic mustiness,
students must be given freedom to
think on social-economic questions
and to participate in public and po-
litical activities. Without freedom of
assembly, speech and action, college
students cannot receive an education
in the true sense of the word.
Change and improvement are hin-
dered by the separation of education
and life. I condemn any effort to
limit the freedom of speech of stu-
dents and I heartily approve attempts
to secure that freedom."
College Editors Take Part
In addition to these leading educa-
tors, the call has been signed by Mr.
Roger Baldwin of the American Civil
Liberties Union; Prof. Crane Brinton
of Harvard; Mr. Waldo Frank, novel-
ist and critic and a member of the
.National Committee for the Defense
of Political Prisoners; Rev. John
Haynes Holmes; Prof. Horace M.
Kallen of the New School of Social
Research; Prof. Robert Morss Lovett
of the University of Chicago; Prof.
Arthur W. Macinahon of Columbia
University; Mr. Herbert Solow of the
Encyclopeia of the Social Sciences;
Prof. Harry F. Ward of Union Theo-
logical Seminary, and others. The
student signers are from Columbia,
Barnard, N. Y. U., Hunter, C. C. N. Y.,
Brooklyn, Long Island University and
Cooper Union. Among them are the
editors of the student newspapers of
Barnard, N. Y. U., Huntef and Coo-
per Union, leaders of student organi-
zations and student ex-editors.
Holds Rights Inherent
The call declares that faculty
rights are "truisms" and that stu-
dents' rights "are or should be tru-
isms." It affirms that to hamper
student "expression of opinion on
economic, political or social matters
or to prevent activities properly im-
plied by those opinions is to strike at
civil rights, at the basis of scientific
pedagogy and at the right to a sound
and adequate education."
In a statement released simultane-

ously with the call, Mr. Solow, who is
acting as secretary, said that the
conference was projected as a result
of requests for help in their difficul-
ties by students to the National Com-
mittee for the Defense of Political

Garner Seeks
Repeal; House
To Speed Vote
Outright Stand On Ques-
tion Speaker's Promise
In Beer Resolution
WASHINGTON, Nov. 28.--O)-A
week from today the latest expression
on national prohibition may be writ-
ten in one branch of Congress on a
proposal to repeal the eighteenth
amendment.
Determined to seek a vote on re-
peal in the House next Monday, the
opening day of the short session,
Speaker Garner is drafting a resolu-
tion for outright repeal which in
final form may take a stand against
return of the saloon.
Garner who hopes the Senate also
will act speedily on the question, is
moving with other Democratic lead-
ers for a House vote on legalization
of beer as well before the Christmas
holidays.
A repeal resolution requires a two-
thirds vote in both houses before sub-
mission to the states for ratification
by 26 of their number. Garner has
expressed the hope that the senate
would vote repeal in time for action
by state legislatures in 1933, when
44 of the 48' state assemblies meet.
With Senator McNary of Oregon,
assistant Republican leader, favor-
ing it, sentiment for speedy senate
consideration or repeal is growing.

Presto! Your Nickel Returns;
We're Back To Pre-TWar Values

NEW YORK, Nov. 28.-U)-A man
stands on the corner at Broadway
and 42nd selling a 5-cent "magic
box."
"Step right up,' he shouts, "and
see this amazing bargain. You put
a nickel in this slot, give the box a
shake and presto! Your nickel's gone.
Then another shake and presto! It's
back again."
The man is right. The nickel is
back-and this time you can buy
almost anything in the line of food;
much in amusement; considerable in
clothing and incidentals, and miles
of travel.
Old Purchasing Power
In New York City and in almostt
any American city the nickel willf
purchase pre-war values today, and
it has more appeal because the
ranges of articles obtainable is wider.
In food you may obtain carrots
sufficient to feed six persons; you
may satisfy the potato appetites of
a dozen, and you may select almost
any variety of preserved vegetables
and relishes in 5-cent containers. In
some restaurants an entire meal may
be had for a lone alloy. On Fifth
avenue, in stores whose fronts are
landmarks, a sandwich may be had
for five cents, and a half pound of
chocolates is the same price. The
nickel cup of coffee has become an
institution,
Pressing Cheap
As for amusement, many motion
picture houses are showing for a
nickel the same attraction your
neighbor may have paid $1.50 to see
when it opened a few months ago.
In some "10-cents-a-dance" places
the price of a spin around the floor

has been halved, and in an occa-
sional shooting gallery you can bring*
the butt of the best gun in the house
to your shoulder for five cents.
. Uncle Sam himself will provide
hundreds of pamphlets of an instruc-
tive nature for the same price.
In clothing and incidentals there
are these to be considered.
On Broadway a cravat may be had.
On Fifth avenue a woman's handker-
chief-guaranteed to be pure linen-
is obtainable, and socks and garters
are plentiful.
You may purchase 30 yards of
darning wool.
The nickel cigar a vice-president
day-dreamed about years ago also is
on the market. You even may get
two of them.
Movies Reduce
In the suburbs you can contract
by the week to have a suit :pressed
and delivered for five cents a day,
and you may park your automobile
all day for the same price.
Not least, there threatens a full-
fledged controversy over the nickel
when beer comes back. Some brewers
say the schooner should bring 10
cents but the old-time politician ex-
presses doubt. He argues that the
public thinks only of five-cent beers.
Many cities have the five-cent fare
for surface, elevated and subway
travel. In New York, administration
after administration has fought for
the retention of such a system.
You may board a train in the very
upper reaches of the city, speed 50
and 60 miles an hour through the,
Bronx, under Manhattan and the
East river to Brooklyn and Coney
Island-for five cents.

Seven Believed
Lost As Gales
Lash Tug Boats
Superior And Michigan
Each Claim One Vessel;
Coast Guards Baffled
SAULT STE. MARIE, Nov. 28.-(P)
-The upper great lakes, storm-
tossed for days but now calm, today
hit the fate of seven men believed
to have perished in the sinking of two
tugs, one, in Lake Michigan and the
other in Lake Superior.
Lake Michigan yielded the first
clew to the fate of the tug South
Shore and her crew of two, when the
top of her pilot house and some sack-
ed potatoes, believed to have been
part of her cargo, were found float-
ing near Frankfort.
Coast guards still searched the
shoreline of Lake Superior for bodies
of the five men believed to have
drowned when the fishing tug Lydia
floundered outside the Grand Marias
harbor Friday night.
Discovery of the South Shore's
wreckage was reported by radio to
the coast guard station here. The
61-foot tug had been unreported
since it put out from Garden with a
cargo of potatoes for Milwaukee, a
30-hour run, on Nov. 19. She was
owned by W. J. Lawrie of Milwaukee,
was registered at Manitowoc, Wis.,
and was manned by Capt. Erwin
Tonokin and Engineer Ole Ahlstrom.
A coast guard search for two com-
panion fishing tugs of the Lydia'end-
ed when the vessels, the Josephine
and Isabella, of Grand Marias, re-
turned safely to port. They had rid-
den out the blow in the shelter of an
island.
The Lydia was owned in Racine,
Wis., but had operated during the
fishing season out of Grand Marais.

"Students came to the committee,"
Mr. Solow said, "because they knew
it to be interested in political freedom
in general and because among its
leading members are Professors Lo-
vett, Counts, Newton Arvin of Smith
College, Franz Boas of Columbia and
other eminent academicans. The
committee felt that they deserved aid.
