Attacks Teachers'

Red Cross Leader
Also Raps System
To Ask Lifting Of Ban On
Teaching Communism
In District of Columbia
PORTLAND, Ore., June 29.--(P)-
Resentment at the congressional
"Red River" limiting teachers of gov-
ernmental science in the District of
Columbia was expressed tonight at
the 74th annual convention of the
National Education Association.
John W. Studebaker, United States
commissioner of education, and Tho-
mas W. Gosling, national director
of the American Junior Red Cross, in
addresses, flayed "dictatorship" in
Not Advocating Communism
"I am certainly not contending
for the esta'blishment of or advo-
cacy of communism," Studebaker
said. "But I do wish to point out
that the implications of the situation
in the District of Columbia are of
great significance to all citizens who
conscientiously try to bring a defi-
nition of education into harmony
with our traditional concept of Amer-
ican democracy.
"If democracy meanspfreedom to
inquire, to learn, to express oneself,
then we can tolerate no dictatorial
censorship of thinking and learning."
:Gosling, who said teachers of the
District of Columbia are required
each month to state under oath they
have not taught communism to their
pupils, declared:
Until we remove dictatorships
from the schools, we cannot with
good grace attack it elsewhere. Com-
pulsory oaths of allegiance and com-
pulsory salutes to the flag are flag-
rant examples of dictatorship."
Teachers Must Feel Free
The Association's committee on
academic freedom meanwhile re-
leased a report declaring "teachers
must feel free in their teaching" and
declaring "it is futile to expect in-
dependent, judicious and courageous
minds to be developed in students
by timid and submissive teachers."
The report; issued by Dr. Henry
L. Smith, Education School dean at
Indiana University, will be presented
to the Association.
The keynote address was delivered
by Dr. Frederick M. Hunter, Chan-
cellor of Oregon's higher education
system, shortly after the Association's
legislative commission voted to ask
repeal of the Congressional ban on
teaching of Communism in the Dis-
trict of Columbia public schools.

General Strike Is
Predicted By Reed
PITTSBURGH, June 29.-(i')-At-
torney Earl F. Reed, a key figure in
the steel operators' battle against
New Deal legislation, predicted to-
night labor's unionization drive may
lead to a general strike of American
labor unions.
His statement came while a struggle
impends between capital and labor
over organization of the steel in-
dustry's half million workers.
Reed is counsel for the Wheeling
Steel Company, whose New Boston
plant at Portsmouth, O., has been
closed a month by a strike.
The attorney asserted:
"A group of radicals has taken
complete charge of the community,
without interference from either state
or local officials.
"Trained agitators are being sent to
scores of now peaceful communities
and will create the same situation
and a general sympathetic walkout

Besekirsky And Brinkman
To Be Heard In Opening
Program July 7
A series of summer concerts will be
given every Tuesday during the Sum-
mer Session by members of the fac-
ulty of the School of Music.
The first concert to be held at 8:15
p.m. July 7 in Hill Auditorium, will
be given by Prof. Wassily Besekirsky,
violinist and Prof. Joseph Brink-
man, pianist.
The program for the first concert
will open with Mozart's Sonata in B
flat major. Other selections are
Chausson Poeme, Beethoven Kreutzer
Sonata and the Pzigane of Ravel.
The second concert will be a mis-
cellaneous one for which the program
has not been definitely decided, due
to the absence of Prof. Earl V. Moore
who has not returned yet from Eng-
land where he is testing the tone of
the bells for the Carillon.
Prof. Palmer Christian will give an
organ recital for the third concert.
The program will be entirely com-
posed of selections from Bach.
A miscellaneous program to be ar-
ranged at a later date, will form the
fourth concert and Professor Brink-
man will give a program of piano
music for the fifth concert. The
sixth program will also be a miscel-
laneous one.
Plans for the last summer concert
are not definite as yet. According to
Professor Brinkman, it is hoped that
as in former years, Prof. Hanns Pick
will give the program with the as-
sistance of members of his classes.
All concerts will be given at 8:15
p.m. in Hill Auditorium and admis-
sion will be free. Miscellaneous pro-
grams will include selections on the
piano, organ, violin and ensemble se-
Australia Banned
From Trade List
WASHINGTON, June 29. -- UP) -
President Roosevelt today ordered
Australia removed from the list of
nations receiving tariff concessions.
The reason given was that the
Australian government was at pres-
ent according discriminatory treat-
ment to American commerce.
The decision of the President, con-
veyed in a letter to Secretary Mor-
genthau places Australia along with
Germany as the only nations at pres-
ent on the "discriminatory" list.
The President's order is effective
August 1.
On May 22, the Australian prime
minister, Joseph Lyons, presented to
the Australian parliament a plan

NEW YORK, June 29.-W)-The
American Student Union today
threatened a."nation-wide" campaign
for the reinstatement in Columbia
University of Robert Burke, junior
class president-elect who has been
toldhnot to come back in the fall.
The college and the union were in
sharp disagreement as to just why
Burke was dismissed, although both
agreed the action came after the
student's participation in a demon-
stration in front of the home of Dr.
Nicholas Murray Butler, Columbia's
Dean Herbert E. Hawkes of Co-
lumbia College said the students had
a right to conduct the demonstration
-which was in protest against send-
ing a delegate to a Heidelberg Uni-
versity celebration. But the demon-
stration itself, he said, was of a
"disgraceful" character.
Labor Leaders
Storm Baldwin
Charges Premier's Stand
'Endangers Peace And
SecurityOf World'
LONDON, June 29. - UP)- Prime
Minister Stanley Baldwin's govern-
ment was attacked as "a danger to
our country and the peace and se-
curity of the world," tonight, but it
won a vote of confidence in House of
Commons debate.
After the Premier and his War
Minister, Alfred Duff Cooper, were
subjected to a bitter tongue-lashing
by Labor leaders, a technical Labor
motion for adjournment of the de-
bate based on Duff Cooper's speech
recently in Paris, was rejected 284
to 136 in the balloting, which in ef-
fect was a vote of confidence.
The debate was called to discuss
declarations made by cabinet minis-
ters outside parliament which the
labor faction contended were in con-
flict with Britain's declared policies.
Baldwin was absent during the
wrangling, and Clement R. Attlee,;
Labor leader, sarcastically referred
to him as "Little Boy Blue who is
sound asleep."
Herbert Morrison, closing the case
for the Laborites, charged the gov-
ernment was "at sixes and sevens."
"The truth is," he said, "the gov-
ernment has got into a state of utter
irresponsibility in the conduct of for-
eign affairs."
A loud cheer from opposition mem-
bers went up when Morrison declared
ministers like Duff Cooper "ought to
be kept under control; it is bad for
the country and bad for the peace
of the world."
Dug Cooper did not participate in
the debate, but he heard Sir John Si-
mon, home secretary, and Winston
Churchill, Conservative, come to his
defense after Morrison joined other
Laborites in charging he had prom-
ised an unrestricted alliance with
France in case of war "pre-supposing
it will be against Germany."
Wallace To Make
Tour Of Dry Area
WASHINGTON, June 29. - UP) -
After conferring with the adminis-
tration's special drought committee,
Secretary Wallace decided today to
make a personal inspection survey
of the north central drought area.
Paul Appleby, Wallace's assistant,
said no definite itinerary would be
announced and that for the most part
Wallace would travel alone. He

planned to leave Washington tomor-
row, Appleby said, adding that he
might be accompanied during the
first days of the trip by other agri-
culture department officials.
Wallace has a speaking engage-
ment at Duluth, Minn., on July 2,
after which it was indicated he would
proceed into the Dakotas, Montana
and Wyoming where the drought is
causing' the worst damage,

29.- (P) --Postmaster General
James A. Farley, denied tonight
that he had resigned as Post-
master General.
WASHINGTON, June 29.--()-_
Advanced as an alternative to re-
ports that James A. Farley proposed
to resign as postmaster general,
some Capital quarters tonight sug-
gested that he might take a leave of
absence until conclusion of the pres-
idential campaign.
Under this plan, usually well-in-
formed sources said, Farley could be
in a position to devote complete at-
tention to directing-as Democratic
national chairman-the reelection
campaign of President Roosevelt.
This would leave William W.
Howes, first assistant postmaster
general, as acting chief of the de-
partment during the Farley absence,
it was suggested.
Farley was renamed chairman of
the national organization at the clos-
ing session of the Philadelphia con-
vention. In addition to his national
chairmanship, he also retains the
chairmanship of the state organiza-
tion, a position which he held prior
to the campaign of Mr. Roosevelt in

New York Times in a Washington
dispatch says that James A. Farley

he can devote more time to his duties
as chairman of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee.
It was said that the resignation.
will be accepted soon and that Wil-
liam W. Howes, first assistant post-
master general, will be designated
acting postmaster general.
Some Democrats were said to be-
lieve that Howes would perform
postmaster general duties during the
campaign, and that Farley would be
reappointed if President Roosevelt is
The newspaper reported opposition
had developed to the plan, however,
and that the president might later
appoint a new man to the post.
"Friends of Mr. Farley," the dis-
patch continued, "are hopeful that
he can return as postmaster general
after the November election. It is
known that he desires to remain in
the cabinet, believing that thus his
prospects of success in his plans to
run for governor of New York in
1938 would be enhanced."

GENEVA, June 29,-(P)-Italy,
seeking to calm fears of Great Brit-
ain and France, promised the League
of Nations tonight that she would notI
create a huge Ethiopian Army.
This pledge was contained in a
note delivered on the eve of a ses-
sion of the League Assembly before
which Emperor Haile Selassie will
make a personal plea for "justice."
The Italian note blamed Ethio-
pians for the war and sketched plans
for the development of the country,
promising to keep the League in
touch. It announced Italy's inten-
tion to "collaborate in every way"
with the Geneva body,
Haile Selassie wrote officials: "It
is our intention personally to take
part in one of several meetings of the
Assembly at the head of the Ethi-
opian delegation."
The Negus, stripped of his Em-
pire by Italy, remained in seclusion
in his hotel today working on his
appeal, to be delivered in French.
Creation of an "International Col-
lege of Elder Statesmen" to help the7
League keep worldpeace was sug-
gested tonight by the Greek jurist,
Nicolas Politis.
Behind Politis' proposal was the
idea that the United States, Germany+
and Japan might join the League if
members were freed of general sanc-
tions responsibility.I
Politis proposed to limit the par-t
ticipation of nations in economic anda
financial sanctions to those directly
interested in any conflict and to re-'
strict military sanctions to a re-1
gional group of states of which the
victim of aggression would be a mem-
ber. .
He also proposed a new interpre-
tation of Article 10 whereby nations
would respect, but not undertake to
guarantee, the territorial indepen-
dence of other nations.
The suggested College of States-
men would advise the Council on the1
best means of maintaining peace
during any menace of war.
Delegates were agreed that the As-
sembly would lift sanctions from'

reported from Djibouti today. The
newspaper said that Italian air-
planes bombed several thousand Eth-
iopian warriors massed near Harar,
second city of Emperor Haile Selas-
sic's lost kingdom.
Dispatches from Rome, however,
said that Premier Mussolini has or-
dered several contingents of the
Italian Army in Ethiopia to come
home, apparently as a gesture to
show the "pacification" of Ethiopia

under Italian rule prior to tomorrow's
session of the League Assembly.
