Lowell Wires Garner, Urges Sit-Down Strikes Be Stopped

Declares Sit-Down Weapon "Mockery" and Illegal


President-emeritus Abbott Lawrence Lowell '77 joined seven business men in a telegram yesterday to Vice-President John N. Garner urging that sit-down strikes be declared illegal by Congress. He demanded that Congress enact and enforce legislation preventing the new labor weapon.

In his wire Lowell referred to the sit-down strikes as "making a monkey out of constitutional government." The wire was sent to Vice-President Garner, it was determined, in the vacation absence of President Roosevelt.

President Lowell's telegram follows closely President Conant's letters denouncing the Supreme Court change into the national arena.
