STUDENTS TO HAVE THEIR OWN
INSTITUTE NIX ON LOEB
Jacob Loeb can go jump in the lake
bo far as Chicago Hebrew Institute
students are concerned. They are not
going to stand for Loeb running the
institute the way he has.
The 400 students who struck at
Hebrew Institute because Loeb, its
president, would not permit free
speech are going to start an institute
of their own. They met last night to
talk things over denounce Loeb and
lay plans for the new institute.
The building for the new institute
has been decided upon, but its loca
tion will not be made known until the
lease is signed. It is understood to
be in the vicinity of Ashland and Tay
A ball will be given at West Side
Auditorium Saturday night for the
benefit of the new institute.

we want just by touching a button."
"It will never pay here," growled

"Because nothing on earth would
ever make you touch a button. Look
