Many Organizations To Join
In Mass Demonstration
At German Consulate

            Student Council has endorsed the activities of the League for Boycott of the 1936 Olympics in Germany by sending two delegates to a demonstration it is sponsoring today. Beatrice Turetsky and Sylvia Wener are the delegates appointed by Sylvia Wener at Wednesday's Council meeting.

            The Jewish Examiner, a newspaper published by Rabbi Louis D. Gross of the College Administration Committee of the Board of Higher Education and "devoted to the interests of the Jewish people," has initiated this campaign. Due to its efforts the Anti-Olympic League was formed. This organization, which is sponsoring the demonstration, has called upon all sympathetic groups: athletic clubs, Menorah, Newman clubs, student councils, and YM.C.A.'s to send delegates to the mass meeting. Thirty-seven organizations, including the Labor Sports Union, a revolutionary sports organization composed of workers, professionaland non-professional, have already responded. The student groups have been asked to accompany a delegation to Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia, asking him to keep all city colleges from participating in preliminary tryouts for the Olympic games. Student Council, the Current Problems Club, the Social Science Club, and the Anti-War League of this college have already endorsed the move.

            The demonstration will take place today at 3:30 p.m. outside the German Consulate Building at Battery Park.
