Governor Brumbaugh agrees with them
In this, but the opposition of tho farm

UNIVERSITY PAPER RAISES
QUESTION OF FREE SPEECH
Editorials in Red nnd Blue Stir Stu
Free speech at tho University of Penn
sylvania becamo an open Issue as tho
result of one of two editorial articles In
the January Issue of tho Red and Blue,
tho student publication. One artlclo
criticises the action of the university
authorities in Inviting "Billy" Sunday to
speak at the institution.
Tho other editorial Is entitled Re
grets." No university publication has
criticised tho administration in years, nnd
students aro interested In tho possible out
come. Some think It will mean a now era
for college Journalism; others that it will
mark the end of tho Red and Bluo unless
it returns to Its former policy. The "Re
grets" editorial follows:
"We had hoped to present In this Issue
a critical analysis of Pennsylvania undor
grnduate life. It was to havo been
written by a very nblo member of tho;
faculty whoso views upon tho subject
nre Just the sort wo ought to hear. But
It would hnvo displeased the authorities,
ho said, and the article was not written.
We regret tho loss of tho article, but
more deeply do wo regret that a member
of our faculty should think that he la
not at liberty to express his views."
The editorial referring to Sunday Is a
" 'Th.j man (ho was speaking of Dr.
Charles D. Eliot, of Harvard) who denies
tho power and justice of God Is n liar.
He Is so low down he'd need an airship
to get to hell.' Tho Rev. William A.
Sunday, in his sermon on Sunday even
ing, January 4, 1915.
"It Is generally held "that the purpose
and aim of this University Is to mnke
every student a scholar and a gentleman,
that Is, as like Doctor EI(ot ns possible.
Is thero not, then, a slight Inconsistency
in the University's Invitation to this
man who holds scholars and scholarship
In such contempt and who so flagrantly
violates the rules of common courtesy
to como uplift the students?"
