Six students of
Brooklyn College are represented on a solutions committee elected last
Friday by the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Association, which held a
conference against war of the N. Y. U. School of Education. These
students are Beatrice Gomberg, Pearl Greenberg, and Sara Pitchersky of
the Womens' division; Henry Aron, Joseph Cohen, and Daniel Wolfert of
the Mens' division.
The conference, at
which nine New York colleges were represented, recognized the necessity
for student action and the importance of a city-wide convention to
represent the anti-war sentiment of the major collegiate institutions.
Max Cutler, president of the M. I. A. was chairman of the first cession
of the conference.
Rev. Herbert Evans
representing the religious viewpoint, stated that hate is the cause of
war, and that war begins with racial discrimination. This opinion was
strongly criticised by Theodore Draper, Communist student.
