Raps Press In
N oS. L. Speech.
'Distortion Of News' Cited
By 'New Masses' Editor
In Slide Talk
"Class bias is implicit in the press,"
said Sender Garlin, member of the
editorial staff of "New Masses" maga-
zine, in his speech last night in the
Union sponsored by the National Stu-
dent. League. He showed slides of
newspaper headlines and articles to
prove that the press "is the conscious
agency for discrediting labor and pro-
tecting the owning class."
Through the slides he endeavored1
to sl .th.ae iistotianef the account
of the communist convention. Others
of Sacco and Vanzetti, May Day
demonstrations, and mob riots, in
which labor was always rapped, were
used to illustrate his point.
The handling of the account of the
May Day parade by the press was one

commented on the use of numerous
editorials against the working class
which the paraders purported to re-

Nothing was sai officially at the
treasury regarding the case,\but pres-
idential acceptance of the resignation

One of the charges involved the
sale. of postmas~ter hips in Michigan.
When asked about this, Postmaster-
General Farley sad the mtteg was
under investigatioii
"We'll take care Of that in due time.
We certainly would never approve the
appointment of a postmaster who paid
for his job."
Abbott's resign tion climaxed a
hurried trip to Waington with Ste-
phen B, Gibbon, assistant secretary
of the treasury, and Wright Mat-
thews, deputy com issioner of inter-
nal revenue. Gibbon and Matthews'
