Symptom of Illness Found in Tendency
Of Student Affairs Committee to
Suppress Free Speech and Discussion
Professor Clark's Arbitrary Action in-Suspending
A Newspaper Correspondent Savors Strongly
Gf the Methods of the Elmira Reform School
STANFORD UNIVERSITY; Dec. 14— A symptom of the ill
ness of Stanford university, already evident to some extent, is
found in the tendency of the student affairs committee to sup
press free speech and discussion. An active censorship by this com
mittee hangs over every student who dares to criticise. It is par
licularly vigilant when the criticism is directed at a member of the
faculty, or »at any faculty policy oi student control.
Editors of the student publications have keenly felt this censor
ship. Some of them have been suspended or deposed, or punished
by loss of scholarship credits for the crime of speaking their minds
frankly. The case of one student .editor already has been referred
to in some detail, but it has not been the editors alone who have been
brought under this restraint. Correspondents for the metropolitan
newspapers also have felt the power of the student affairs' committee.
Briefly, now, I want to present the facts concerning a student
correspondent of a San Francisco "newspaper, and I do so with some
hesitation because of two things. In the first place, I have been told
that this student still hopes for a decree allowing- him to return to'finish His
college course, which was interrupted by suspension, and I would not will
ingly injure any chance he may have for reinstatement.. In the second place,
at the time of his' suspension this student was the Stanford correspondent
of The Call, and it was because of news' articles appearing in this paper that
he was suspended. \u25a0 \u25a0..'."•'.
Since the publication of this series of Stanford articles was begun, the
charge has been made by some opposed to uncovering existing conditions at
Stanford that my personal attitude has been inspired by some sort of malice
or animus, and that The Call, in publishing these articles, is merely voicing
a spite against the university. I realize that reference to this particular
case may be seized upon as. evidence to support such charges'. Knowing,
however, that these accusations are ridiculous and utterly untrue, I trust that
a fair statement of the facts in this case may serve to show the sincerity that
really exists and that reference to it will be accepted for just what it is
intended to be — as merely illustrative of conditions and as particularly timely
because of its recent occurrence.
The case in question is that of James W. Henderson, a junior in the pre
legal department, registered from Eureka. Henderson, at that time the cor
respondent of The Call, was suspended from the university October 28. He
was suspended under a rule, then laid down by the student affairs committee
for the first time, that a student correspondent would be held responsible
for anything appearing under a Stanford date line in. the paper which he
represented, regardless of whether or not he had written the article.
Henderson, in fact, was "fired" for two articles, neither of which he had
written, and one of which had appeared five months previously and had been
passed over without comment at that time. The order suspending him gave
the grounds' for dismissal as being "an accessory to the publication of articles
which were false and derogatory to the university."
The article which led directly to the suspension was published in The
Call of October 16. It related to a slight fire in Roble hall, one of the
women's dormitories on the campus. Henderson had telephoned the facts'
of the fire to the San Francisco office on. the night it occurred, and the
account, written in a light, entertaining style, was prepared in the San
Francisco office. The day following its publication, Henderson received a
summons to call at the office of Prof. A. B. Clark/chairman of s the student
affairs committee. He was' asked to explain his part in sending the story.
He told of having telephoned it after calling up the two matrons of Roble
hall and after having been asked by them to suppress it. Professor Clark
took the position that, because the article was written in a light, humorous
vein, it tended to present the women students of the university as frivolous
creatures, and, as such, to hold them up to ridicule.
Regarding what took place at this interview, I quote portions of Henderr
son's own statement. I have since discussed the matter with Professor
Clark, and believe there is no contradiction as to any essential fact. Hen
derson's report regarding these details was" as follows:
Professor Clark asked me. If I considered the story as It was run a
. good news story. I replied that I did think it was a good news story.
In that it would be widely read, that it injured no one and that It was
written up in an entertaining manner.,.
He said, "Mr. Henderson, I am to think, then, that had you been
writing the story you would have written it in the same manner?"
I said that had I been writing it in the city I should have done so.
He then said, "'Then had you waited until' the next day and written
the story yourself, would you have written it in the same way?"
To that I said, "No, I probably would not have. written it in that
way. lam in Rome and try to do as the Romans do. I want to get an
education at Stanford, if possible, and on that account, knowing the.
attitude of the committee on student affairs In regard to correspondents
I probably would not have run a story of that' kind."
To that Professor Clark replied, "Well, I can not say that I like that
attitude In the least. I can not say that'l consider a manw.no holds that
-attitude a, safe man to have as a student correspondent."
Henderson was also questioned about an article which had appeared five
months- earlier, during the spring semester of the college year. It related
to the expulsion of a student for an affair of an entirety different nature, and
contained this-paragraph: '
The Intrusion of the student affairs committee of Stanford* univer->
sity into the field of romance has caused consternation on the campus
Heretofore the committee has contented itself with regulating the sleep- 1
ing and waking hours of the students, the amount of studies they could -\u25a0-.
take or leave, the number of steins that they could consume— off the •
campus — and such trivial' regulations which merely disturb the tradi
tions of the college. No effort had been made to control adventurous'
roma'nee or penalize a recreant lover.
Clark's particular objection to the article was to this paragraph, which
he viewed as acriticism of his committee. - As. a matter of fact, Henderson,
had not reported this story. He had told it to. a personal friend, who had
given it to The Call several days 1 later. A special man. was sent frorh the
office of The Call to Stanford to. investigate the matter,and it^was he who
collected the facts and wrote the article. .\u25a0
Following* Clark's interview with Henderson, .'nothing developed -for
about 10 days. 'Then Henderson was summoned before: ftie'entire committee
and the ;rnatter.was gone over once more Stress was laid on the article con"
ceming the Roble fire, the stand being taken that it was offensive* in the way
in which it ..was written. Henderson was suspended. The policy then
announced by the committee was that student correspondents would there
after be held responsible for anything appearing in the 'papers; they-repre
sented in any manner derogatory to the university, on the ground that* the
committee, having no control over the papers in question, must find some
other means of exercising its censorship. :•- * ' ; \u25a0
Such was the last measure taken toward the; adoption; of an absolute
censorship at Stanford. Henderson was- merely chosen as an The

Justices Interpret Falling Wall
Clause in Santa Rosa In
surance/Case <
The '•falling wall" clause, which has
caused a great amount of legal dispute
since the disaster of 1906,. was inter
preted for the first time by the supreme
court yesterday. The decision holds
the insurance companies liable .for
damages caused by V flre wljere it can
be shown that the flre was. under way
before any of the walls fell in. The
falling: of a wall before* .the starting
of a flre nullified the Insurance policy.
In cases, however, where damage was
done by fire before one of the walls
caved in,, the.- accident did not nullify
the policy, and' the -company is liable
for the full amount'of damage done be
fore and after the falling of the wall.
The decision, written by Justice
Shaw, was handed down in the suit of
Naomi Davis, "executrix "of the estate
of Henry, Davis, against the Connecti
cut insurance company for $1,000 on a
policy covering the contents of. a drug
store in Santa Rosa. " The court de
cided that the first shiver of the quake
severed the electric wires and set the
building, on fire, and that the second
shiver sent the .front wall tearing down
into the building and the street. Al
though the damage 'by fire between
these two shivers, less than half a min
ute 1 Apart, must have been small, the
court decided that in principle the fact
that the fire started before the wall
fell made the company, liable for the
full amount of the "policy. Justice
Melvin.v while not dissenting from the
reasoning of this decision, filed a dis
senting yew, holding that the task of
deciding whether a^- wall can fall faster
than a piece. of wood can take fire was
too delicate for a jury and that the
verdict was not strongly enough sup
ported by the evidence.
In a similar decision handed down
yesterday the court reversed a verdict
giving C- Fountain »of Santa Rosa a
Judgment of $1,000 against the Con
necticut insurance company. In this,
it. was shown, the front wall of the
Shea building in Santa Rosa fell before
the . flr^ev started, thus invalidating the
insurance policy.
