          The blatant blare of trumpets too often change [sic], when war levies its toll, to the somber muted tone of the trombone. The Brooklyn College Anti-War Conference, supported by faculty and students alike is rapidly gaining momentum. We have been faced by problems of pacifism before. Whether our noble resolutions will disappear like chaff before the wind at the first martial air is another matter. Many people prominent in various fields have regretfully come to that pessimistic conclusion.

          The students of Brooklyn in holding this conference, are establishing for their college a commendable precedent. We sincerely believe that in appealing to the youth of the city, by means of education and propaganda the sponsors of the convention will aid in the averting of another international catastrophe.
