          Professor Jesse Dunmore Clarkson of the History department addressed the Social Science Club at an anti-war rally yesterday. Professor Clarkson began by saying that he knew nothing about the economic roots of war, the topic he had been asked to discuss, but that he was willing to answer questions.

          In the course of the ensuing discussion, Professor Clarkson stated that wars were nurtured in an economic soil, but that their direct causes were of a political nature. He said that an anti-war movement had great chances of success at the present time, and urged students to join such a movement.

          Dorothy Sapan, president of the Social Science Club, read a letter from Professor Thomas E. Coulton, who urged peace and brotherly love as the means of fighting war.
