United Action Against
An appeal to the
students of New York to support and participate in a Peoples' March for
Peace to be held tomorrow was issued by the initiating committee for

labor, religious, and educational organizations.
"Only the united
will of all peoples opposed to war will slop Mussolini. Only unity of
action by all friends of peace will prevent world war." declares the
call, appealing to all organizations opposed to war to forget their
differences of affiliations in an action which expresses the peoples'
desire for the preservation of peace. Among the signers of the appeal
are Waldo McNutt, national chairman of the American Youth Congress, for
People's March for Peace Committee; The Committee for Ethiopian
Independence; Dorothy McConnell, daughter of Bishop Francis J.
McConnell; and Dr. Harry F. Ward. professor of Ethics at Union
Plans for this
demonstration against Mussolini's invasion of Ethiopia and the threat
of world war call for a march on Fifth Avenue to end in a mass outdoor
rally at Columbus Circle where persons prominent in the fight against
war are expected to speak. There will be two assembly points, one at
23rd Street and Fifth Avenue and the other at 110th Street at Fifth
Avenue. The two contingents will meet at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue
and march together across 59th Street to Columbus Circle.
A "Proclamation of
Labor" condemning Italy's invasion of Ethiopia, signed by over
thirty-five officials of the American Federation of labor, was. issued
by the Committee for Ethiopian Independence, one of the organizations
which is sponsoring the March for Peace.
