Chicago Press Club Has No Use For Haywood. A special dispatch from Chicago to the Denver Republican of August 12. reads; William D.

An emphatic protest adressed to the prepared at Ix.ard of directors, was A once and circulated for signatures, vote of censure is asked for the members who brought Haywood into the club. This will be considered at the board's meeting Friday night. Considerable commotion was caused iduring the noon lunch hour, when Hay ( wood appeared at the club in company with Seymour Stedman and F. Roderus. He was introduced to a number and was greeted in various ways. . Stedman and Roderous then took their guest to a table in the corner, where they had , l unc h.

The fact ; of the acquittal of Haywood does not vindicate him in the public opinion, nor ! render him a fit person to be allowed inside our club house. We would ask that a vote of censure be passed against the men who were responsible for bring- ! ing him into the club. In making this | request we would disclaim any intention j of criticising a member for political opinions or socialistic views." Mr. Baker said tonight that the pro test had been signed by 12 members and would be placed liefere as many of the i club members as possible.
