College Anti -War League To Hold Protest Mass Meeting
More than one thousand
students met at the flagpole on the City College campus yesterday at
twelve o'clock and voted to hold a two hour strike on Tuesday from
eleven to one to protest the expulsions and suspensions which resulted
from the anti-Fascist demonstration on October 9.
Gottschall recommended that five students be indefinitely suspended and
that thirty-two be placed on probation for the rest of their college
careers. The Faculty Committee on Student Affairs, however, did not
accept his recommendation. They expelled twenty-one, suspended four and
put twenty on probation.
Dr. Daniel W.
Redmond died from a heart attack a few minutes after the meeting.

which student and faculty speakers will protest on behalf of the
expelled students will be held Monday, from one to two o'clock.

the Student Councils of both divisions to discontinue the collection of
Red Cross funds until an answer to the charges appearing in the
