LOUDSPEAKER IMPERSONATES ORATORS FOR LOWELL HOUSE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"I hate war!", uttered by a titanic voice last night in the small courtyard of Lowell House brought dozens of Bellboys scurrying to listen. The curious were well rewarded for they heard successively the voices of Roger Bigelow Merriman (demanding quiet in a falsetto), J. J. Toomey, of the Cambridge City Council (telling how he stood on Larz Anderson Bridge and saw nothing but disappointed spectators returning from the Stadium) and Franklin Delane Roosevelt '04 (revealing that he hates war).

A loudspeaker in a darkened fourth-floor window was discovered to be the source of the propaganda. Rumored to be operated by Walter W. Webster '39, last evening was its second night of operation. Apparently it will continue tonight, in its self-appointed role of Station WLOW, as ardent campaigner for James Michael Curley, the American Legion, and the Cambridge Council. Thus far, nothing but enthusiasm has greeted the voice of reaction. Tune in at 7:30 o'clock.
