PEACE COUNCIL TO SUMMON ANTI-WAR STRIKE AT 11 TODAY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Celebrating national student Peace Day, the United Peace Council will stage the third annual anti-war strike and walkout from classes at 11 o'clock today is the New Lecture Hall.

Introduced by Dean Hanford, Professor Frederick L. Schumann, of Williams, will give the main address.

According to the Council's strike call, "The strike (and walkout) is in no way directed against the University, but is rather a militant and orderly expression of the determination of students to oppose all plans which would lead us into another world slaughter." The Cambridge meeting is being followed by a second anti-war gathering of all greater Boston colleges on the Common at 12 o'clock.

After Schumann's address, A. Jerome Himelhoch '38 will announce the five-fold purpose of the strike: to demand the demilitarization of colleges, to oppose the war budget, to recognize the Oxford pledge, to defend civil liberties, and to resolve to keep America out of war. Himelhoch will stress the importance of supporting the Nye-Kvale amendment to eliminate compulsory military training.
