Dean of University Issues

: !'It , seems .that rumors to the
effect ;. . that the - administration

rumors be true I question in !many

however, no , 'stool pigeons' have

or by Jthe request, of this admin

Attack on Assembly Preced-
ents Announced by Vice
President at Celebration
of Revolution
Denunciation of Senatorial
Vote is Thundered Amid
x Applause
BOSTON. April 18. Vice Pres
ident Charles O.-Dawes, in Boston,
for the celebration of the 150th
anniversary of the" battle ot Con
cord and Lexington, in a speech
at c luncheon ot 1000 Boston bus
iness men today renewed his! at
tack on , "j enate rule" which ! he
launched in his Inaugural address
March 4. Denouncing the present
rules of the senate ; he said; he
would continue the battle fori re
form throughout his four years
of office. He was greeted with
cheers when he called on those
present including Senator William
M. Butler, to show their desire for
a change by rising. . -
Tonight in the Old North church
in ' the belfry of which lanterns
wera .hung on the eve of the first
battle of the revolution as a warn
ing that the British troops were on
the march, the vice president in- I
augurated the formal program of
the Concord-Lexington celebration
by an address in which he termed
the constitution a guiding light
for the nation.
. Called on for a speech at the
luncheon at which Owen D. Young
and Jeremiah H. Smith, commis
sioner general of the league of na
tions, to Hungary, also were guests
MrJDawea entered-at 'once..1 upon
his denunciation of the senatorial
vote, thumping the' table vigorous
ly as he thundered his disapproval.
"I ani, going- around' this' coun
try before I get through this' four
years, then I'm going out of of
fice," he said, in conclusion amid
laughter and applause;, "I am sat
isfied that this reform! can be ac
complished." f
The vice president had said pre
viously that he would reserve the
d!scuB6ion of the senate rules for
hig New York speech on Tuesday.
It was the presence at the lunch
eon of Senator Butler, be i said,
that led him to change his mind.
Alluding to himself as "thelbest
smokerout in the - country, he
continued: c ..- - j
"It was the way I said, not
what I said, that gave rise to irri
tation in Washington. My grief
over that irritation is somewhat
tempered by a remark of George
Bernard Shaw that no offensive
truth is properly presented, unless
it causes irritation.
"And now I am going to say a
few things. And I am going to
say them because Senator William
M. Butler is here to listen. As t
see it, unless in my humble. way I
can act as. a conduit to transmit
to the senate and its members the
individual reactions of the con
stituency I , do not see . what I am
doing in office. - So I ara going
to appeal to you as part of ; Sen
ator Butler's constituency to ex
press your" opinion on this subject
of senate rule. Here is a princi
ple at stake that our forefathers
fought for.

the people here will appreciate
rpODAY is the; hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the
Jr . battle of Concord" and Lexinsrtdn. The histy "of the
events leading up to the grim struggle" for American indep
endence is the progressive development bf a willingness to
sacrifice and to fight if need be for liberty of corisciehcV
and social, economic and political freedom. With firm de-1
termination to establish for themselvei a commonwealth
free from civic and religious oppression; of others. Bands
of Enriishrrien left their native land over three centuries
ago: They had protested in" vain against political and reli-j
gious domination. However, through these protests and j
Uisappuiutuiviiis vney. wcib tiiiiuevi iii nuciauj u
pared for future battles of life. The struggle of these first
American-colonists is history. j . . I
As early as 1639 there, was union of certain of the New,
England colonies for mutual protection andvto effect this
union the first constitution made in America was adapted.
The spirit bf union and' independence goes apace among
these ancestors of the leaders of the Revolution'. j
The French and Indian war was waged ; minor revolu
tions embroiled both the colonies and the mother country ;
dissension prevailed over . separation of church and . state,
all of which evehts and conditions stimulated still further
the colonists with the hope of independence, until sentiment
favoring separation from authority of king and parlia4
ment took active form under the leadership of such indep
endents aa Adams, Otis, Henry, Franklin, Lee and other
"Sons of Liberty." Appeal after appeal addressed to the
British throne opposing the government of the colonists
without the consent, of the governed were of little or no
avail. After the Treaty of Paris, demands of the king were
river with strri' refusals.
At last the war lords which had been gathering so long
burst into the fury of battle at Concord and Lexington',
April 19, 1775. The story of the canaie gieams in tne oiu
belfry towers, the midnight ride of Paul Revere, the brav
ery of the Minute Men and the "surprise" retreat of the
British "redcoats'! is familar tale. f . ; .
1 The battle of Lexington and Concord is stul signifi
cant on-this anhiversarj', not because of the kind of mili
tary tactics employed; not from its surprising results, but,
because of the great principles involved; It was a blow not
at king or dominion even but at a system: The courage of
those undiscipHned and poorly equipped patriot soldiers and
the sacrifice of , those revolutionary leaders who risked life
also in their efforts to obtain American independence gave
impetus to the struggle for representative government and
liberty throughout the world. And the spirit shown by
those patriots on that April morning so long ago stilly ex
