A report on the Second United
States Congress Against War, which met in Chicago last week was
delivered by David Schreiber at the first meetingof the Anti-War League
Over 3,000 delegates
from trade unions, unemployed groups, tin-war groups, student and youth
organizations were present, he said. The outstanding factor was the
complete united front achieved. The delegates , agreed on a common
program against war and fascism and pledged themselves to fulfill the
promises they had made.
organizations from California to New York and from Texas to Canada were
represented, Schreiber reported. He told of plans of a nation-wide
student anti-war demonstration on November 9 "to counteract the effect
of Armistice Day." A proposal was made that every student group choose
one topic connected with the working class and study it exhaustively.
The club went on
record as endorsing the demonstration called by the Olympic League on
Friday, October 8, at 8:30 p.m. at the German Consulate. Belle Gartner
and Rhona November were elected to re-present the Anti-War League.
