"free speech" for students and teachers
of academla freedom for teachers
took definite form today, when the action
1 ( a committee of students was an
nounced. Tho lines upon which the "fall cam
e&lsn" will be conducted were made evl-
,dent by a, resolution adopted by the com-
If inlrtec. The students will press for "Tree
I speech"; they will "let the trustees
alone," well content to let Dr. Llghtner
Wltmer. professor of psychology, and
I' ether members of the faculty thresh out
this complex saue. The resolution Is as
"The Executive Committee of tho Whar
ton School Association of tho University
of Pennsylvania has recognized the Im
portance of the free speech Issue In our
j university and has decided to call a meet
; lng at which the students may discuss
V tho matter formally. At this meeting
,. the sentiment and action of tho students
will be finally determined."
The members of the committee are
i John Scott Lanstl, chairman; Addison
Woll, Samuel McClure and William Gor
don. They wero appointed Inst spring
by fjardon llardwlck, president of the
' OPPOSE A "REVOLUTION."
The meeting will be held Thursday or
Friday. On Friday the University's fall
term opens officially, registration and
other preliminaries being required on
Thursday. The purpose of the Wharton
School student committee In calling a
meeting before college has gotten a fair
start Is to forestall the action of the
"revolutionary" element In tho student
body, which admittedly exists.
Students returning from their vacations,
spent in all parts of the country, said It
was beyond argument that something
must be done to restore the confidence
of the public in the University In this
respect; that H.b teachers are premltted
to teach what they consider tho truth
about their subjects without Interference.
The conservative element among tho
students feels that no good would come
of a "straight fight to bring back Near
lng." They feel that It would be enough
to present a petition for his reinstate
ment, and that tho mere assertion of the
right of free speech for both students
and teachers, and the determination to
Bxevlao- that right at any coat, would do
sioroHo restore the prestige of the Uni
versity than a student "strike."
"Wo are absolutely opposed to a so
called strike," said Mr. Lansll, the chair
man of the committee.
PROCESSORS MORE RADICA'L.
An amusing phase In the situation Is
that the members of the faculty vl ho have
registered their protests against tho
action of the Board of Trustees In refus
ing to renew Nearlng's contract, are
much more radical In their attitude than
tho students. The letters of Doctor
Wltmer to the newspapers have struck
directly at tho question whether or not
certain of the trustees took their action
against Nearlng because of their affilia
tions with corporations such as, the
United Oas Improvement Company. t"
It was Doctor Witmer who nna.ryzed
tha membership of the Alumni Committee
of S3, which, engineered hY.flsaac A.
Pennypackcr, nephew pA' the former
Governor, took up tbfe cause of the
trustees. He trljoVw 'show' the political
and financial ttanlngs of these men as
possibly rpflected tn their attitude toward
NeniotBTV especially In view of the fact
Wet tho most Important alumni publication
ana usea it to spread propaganda acalnst
radicalism In the faculty.
An, Issue which will play a largo part in
th faculty protest Is that concerning
the "trials" of teachers for "heresy."
Professors have the right of a fair hear
ing and cannot be summarily dismissed
by tho trustees. But assistant professors
and Instructors may be dismissed with
out cause by the trustees, according to
the manner in which the trustees Inter
pret the charter and the law. The pro
testing members of the faculty have de
manded and will demand the same rights
fr assistants and Instructors as those
tuoyea ny proressors.
Three national organizations have taken
action on the "Nearlng case." Investiga
tions of the situation at tho University
f Pennsylvania have been planned by
the American Academy of Social and
Political Science, the American Econnmin
Association and the American Aocla-
an or university i-roreesori.
nnsrs part In the "Nearlng case" Is
t jm prominent as It was. The oDlnlon
le even expressed that there would be a
Jo pt dignity for the Institution If tho
trustees backed down and reinstated
Wearing. What the protesting element In
the faculty wants to Insure Is that there
will be no more arbitrary dismissals.

BUILDERS OF NEW "L"
FIND REMAINS OF OLD,
STARTED BY BELMONT
Frail Foundations, Which En
gineers Would Reject Now,
Removed to Permit Frank
ford Line Work
OF BRICK AND STONE
Brick foundations built on Front street
24 years ago by August Belmont, when
that New York financier started to con
struct an elevntcd line to Frankford, nro
being demolished today by workmen who
are laying tho foundations for the more
modern Frankford elevated railway. More
than a dozen of these relics of Phila
delphia's early high-speed dream were
uncovered last week In tho course of the
excavations for the new elevated founda
Hundreds of Phtladelphlans from alt
parts of tho city flocked to Front Btreet
nnd Girard nvenuo to see the curious
foundation structures. James D. Dorney,
the contractor on the Frankford elevated,
allowed the old relics to remain until to
day, when the progress of the work de
manded that they be demolished.
The first foundation to be demolished
today was that nt tho northwest corner
of Front street and Girard avenue. While
one group of laborers were engaged re
moving this another group began pour
ing concrete In n pit about BO feet farther
north on Front street. This was the first
construction work on the concrete foun
dation bases for the elevated.
While the work has been under way for
two wcek, the workmen up until today
hnvo been engaged glddlng the pits for
tho foundation bases north of Girard
avenue nnd digging the pits where tho
steel-concrete piles will be driven south
of Girard avenue.
Tho piles which will be used arrived
yesterday and tho work of driving may
be begun late today. The piles are hollow
Iron pipes with an Inside diameter of IS
Inches, varying In length from 20 to 40
feet. A wgoden coro fills tho hollow por
tion of tho piles. This wooden coro will
be drawn out when the piles have been
driven Into tho ground and concrete will
be poured In. Later the hollow shell of
the pipe will be withdrawn leaving only
the concrete pile.
The old foundations nro built entirely of
brick, with a largo stono slab laid across
the top. They are nbout five feet square
and vary In depth according to the nature
of the soil whero they nre located. Tho
engineers today marvel that such a frail
looking foundation structure should ever
havo been considered safe to support tho
elevated structure as planned.
GERMANY ADVISES U. S.
SHIPS TO PAINT FLAGS
Neutral Craft Should Carry Identifi
cation on Large Scale
WASHINGTON, Sept 21.-Oermany to
day advised American ship owners to
paint bigger American flags on ships that
traverse the war lone. The advice was
communicated by Ambassador Bernstorft
to tho State Department, which today
Issued this statement:
"The Department Is In receipt of a
communication from tho German Am
bassador to the effect that he has been
advised by his Government that merchant
vessels which desire to show their neu
tral allegiance by painting their national
colors on the side often make the mis
take of having these distinctive signs so
small that they cannot be made out from
"The German Government suggests,
therefore, that the foregoing be brought
to tho attention of American ship owners
In their own Interest."
Steamship Dominion Docks Here
The American Line steamship Dominion
docked today at Washington avenue pier.
She carried a miscellaneous cargo of 1C00
tons. Captain Ingham reported that tho
voyage from Liverpool had been unevent
ful. It Is said that the Dominion will
take on a cargo containing munitions of
war for tho Allies before departing from
this port. This, however, was denied by
officials of the American Line,

KUHN, LOEB & CO.,
MAY NOT AID IN LOAN
Powerful Financial House Re
ported to Have Refused to
Participate in Allies'
INTEREST RATE VEXING
Allied Governments Will Insist on
Right to Uso Money for Pur-
chaso of Munitions
NEW TORK, Sept. 21. Three Important
developments within the past 24 hours
may have an Important effect In changing
the status of tho billion dollar war loan
which the allies aro seeking In this coun
try. They are:
1. Banks placing the loan may hold
out for a commission In excess of one
half of one per cent, which has been
2. Kuhn, Loeb & Co., the greatest
banking firm In the United States with
German connections, Is reported to have
refused to participate In the loan.
3. The Allied Governments will prob
ably Insist upon their right to use money
obtained In the United States for muni
tions of war Instead of such necessities
as food and clothing alone.
Pro-German opposition to the placing of
tho loan has not lessend tho evident pro
gress which tho Anglo-French commis
sion has made In Its negotiations.
This opposition Is believed to have been
largely responslblo for a demand on tho
part of the banks placing the loan for
a commission In excess of one half of
one per cent. The commission may allow
one half of one per cent, per annum
during five years.
Whether the report that Kuhn, Loeb &
Co., will have no part In the underwriting
of the loan will militate against Its
ultimate success remains to be seen. The
officers of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. nre Jacob
H. Schlff. Mortimer L. Schiff, Felix M.
Warburg, Otto H. Kahn and Jerome J.
Hanobur. In addition to the bank hold
ings of the officers of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.
tho banking- house Is a vast holder of
If the allied Governments put Into ef
fect their determination to use part of
the loan for tho purchase of ammunition
and other war supplies, J, P. Morgan &
Co. will profit doubly.
The house of Morgan will not only got
Its commission for placing the loan, but
will make a big profit out of the sup
plies purchased here with the money, as
the banking firm is the fiscal agent for
the British Government In the United
States. It Is now suggested that the first
loan of tho allied Governments be taken
In Instalments, the aggregate total of
which Is to be J7C0.000.O00 Instead of $1,
000,000,000, and that the money bo re
tained In American banks to be drawn
against. Such an action would keep the
money market steady and at the same
time would ease the exchange rate.
The proposition to keep the money here
Is favorably received by virtually all
of the American bankers, but no definite
agreement has been reached yet on this
point. Another Important suggestion Is
that the first instalment of the loan be
secured by five-year 5 per cent, notes, to
net the borrowers 97V4. and that these
notes hold a conversion clause by which
the holders may convert them to long
term Government bonds at a lower rate
of Interest later.

GOOD AFTER OPERATION
University Associates Expect
Dr. Edgar Fahs Smith to Re
Provost Edgar F. Smith, despite his
Weakened condition following an opera
tion by Dr. John B. Deaver for an ab
scess on the-chest, is expected to return
today to his desk as head of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania.
Physicians at the University Hospital,
where Doctor Smith was operated on,
continued tho mysterious reticence In re
gard to the Provost's condition, which
has given rise among his friends to a,
fear that the effects of the operation had
been serious. At his office In the Har
rison Laboratory of Chemistry, on the
campus, however. It was said that the
educator would be In his accustomed
place during the day.
An official of the University, who begged
that his name be withheld, said Doctor
Smith had been In good health until the
latter part of last week and that tho
opcratton, which was performed on Sat
urday, was a minor one. Shortly after
Doctor Deaver operated on him, the Pro
vost was taken from tho hospital In tho
automobile of his brother, Dr. Allen J.
Smith, to his home In the Avondale. 39tn
and Locust streets. There Mrs. Smith
nursed him until It became necessary yes
terday to remove him to the hospital.
Doctor Smith personally will bo in
charge of the chapel services which on
Friday morning will mark the opening of
tho new scholastic year at the university.
It was said at nis office. He also will
attend the reception to freshmen on Fri
day evening, It was expected.
Doctor Kern, of the resident staff of
the hospltat, yesterday admitted that
Do6tor Deaver had operated on the Pro
vost. Later the surgeon said:
"Tho hospital physicians had no right
to say I performed the operation. I
shall call them up and tell them so."
Today Doctor Kern declined to make
any statement as to the patient's condi
tion. The provost's health had been excel
lent throughout the summer, and he was
In his office almost every day. ,

the head with a hatchet. Those who do
not understand the situation might call
this cruelty, but Elizabeth declares It's
simply the result of pept-up feeling.
But It appears that even her husband,
Andrew, whom she regards as a "go-
long-easy nigger," didn't understand this
form of lovo making. The fact that Eliza

loaded milk bottle convinced him, he said,

Andrew was so puzzled regarding his
wife s gvatem of love making that he had
her taken from her home, at 72d street
nnd Woodland avenue, and arraigned be
fore Magistrate Harris, at the 32d street
and Woodland avenue police station.
Elizabeth reminded the Judge that the
Bible requires all to suffer burdens. She
said that Andrew made her rafter and

days will be necessary for tho State De
partment to decide whether It can take
steps to secure tho relief demanded by
the Western meat packers whose goods
to the value of J15.000.O0O havo been or
dered confiscated by the British prize
courts was Indicated by Acting Secre
tary of State Polk today.
The Secretary said that he could not
determine whether the department can
act until after the packers have ex
hausted nil of their means of appeal be
fore tho British courts until after he
has examined all the evidence that the
packers havo promised to submit to tho
The secretary had planned to go over
the entire matter with the representatives
of the packers, Charles J. Faulkner and
Henry Vecder of Chicago, today, but
they were delayed en route and he was
able only to briefly touch on the caso
with their local representative. Colonel
Livingston. Ho assured Mr. Livingston,
however, that ho will do everything pos
sible to protect tho Interests of the pack
ers. He then arranged to confer with
Messrs. Faulkner and Veeder ns soon as
they reach this city, possibly tomorrow.
"The British prize court rules violate
ovcry accepted provision of International
law. Under them the rights that are
guaranteed the private litigant nre ruth

chance of obtaining Justice. Unless the
United States Interferes nnd secures to
Us citizens their constitution rights many
additional millions of dollars will be lost
to American merchants and a trado that
has taken years to build up will bo sacri

These nre the arguments which will bo
presented to Acting Secretary Polk by
tho packers' representatives.
