About 30 members of the Faculty, including President Lowell, Dean L. B. R. Briggs '75 and Dean C. N. Greenough '98, have signed copies of the telegram to be sent to Senator Henry Cabot Lodge '71, which is given below, relative to the Mason resolution now before Congress.
"To Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Washington, D. C.
"In eighteen-sixty, Queen Victoria and Abraham Lincoln joined to prevent war between England and America over Trent affair. Two countries look to you to do the same today by preventing passage of Mason Resolution. Preservation of Anglo-American peace best security for liberties of Ireland and peace of world."
Undergraduates Requested to Sign
Copies of the above telegram may be found during the day in blue books placed in Memorial Hall, the Crimson Building, the Union and Leavitt & Peirce's. Members of the University and Faculty are asked to sign this telegram. At the Crimson Building, in addition, will be found extra copies of the telegram, which may be taken out by individuals to procure other signatures. These copies must be returned to the Crimson by 6 o'clock this evening.
This movement to assist in the defeat of the Mason Bill in Congress is fostered by a group of Faculty members and undergraduates of the University. The Mason Resolution may be construed as an endorsement by the United States Congress of the Sinn Fein effort to create an Irish Republic in the British Empire, and it makes imminent a rupture between Great Britain and the United States.
