Messrs. Aladdin and Tschlakowsky
i Address Big Crowd at Convocation
t on the' RUssian 8truggle.
Friday, May 17, 2 P. M..
Convocation yesterday morning
took on an especial significance as an
event in University history when two
Russian patriots, presented their
cause of freodom and liberty to the
sympathy of an audience that filled
Memorial Hall to its capacity.
The younger of the two statesmen,
Mr. Aladdin, spoko of the privileges
enjoyed by American students under
the Stars and Stripes. Russian stu
dents . are, not. so fortunate . nor so
learned nor so well trained, yet they
have undergone many sacrifices and
aro our equals because they have done
their duty. The Russians, when strug
gling on a foreign soil under a foreign
flag, fought as bravely and as grimly
as now is a struggle for honor,
freedom and liberty. .They love peace
but the transformation "necessary to
the attainment of free press, free
speech .and .assembly can not be
brought about peaceably.
In one year 14,000 men, women and
children are killed; 30,000 die in exile;
and, sinco the police- department re
fuses. Co say how many die in prison,
the lowest estimate of deaths is
50,000. This sort of peace the people
do not like, and they "believe it is far
better to havo'a battle royal once for
all and lose once for all than to be
drained and bled year after year-,. Yet
iifttie Dumabvery effort is being made
to 'save this h great country from the
horrors of civil war, for if civil war
does come to Russia,' the horrors of
the French, Revolution will fade away

Mr. TschiaUowsky, a loader among
the people, tno not of the Duma,
spjoke of reforms as related to the
czar. It has 'been the Imperial forces
which have pushed the masses to tho
wall and persecuted them relentlessly,
declaring, the villagers must obey;the
nobles. Themassos of people cannot

W(( can't live under this longer."
Their , other motto is ''Liberty ' and
land.," The people have had no
arms; their only force has been
courage of thought and they have be
'll'evod and preached it Thus they
undertook to shake the foundations of
tho great empire founded by the Tar
tars seven centuries ago and kept up
by the Greek church and German bu
reaucracy.' The Russian people have
not been to 'blame in rising thus, for
over1 six hundred massacres "have been
organized against people who, like
the Finns, have been most faithful
and law-abiding citizens.

Junior Jollification to Include an Elab
orate Feed.
The committee in charge of the Jun
ior Picnio felt at its last meeting that
it had achieved a decided victory, in
successfully arranging two important
details of tho Jollification which will
come off Saturday afternoon, at Ep
worth Park. First, It was definitely
reported that A. H. Miller, manager of
scheduled a game with tho Lincoln Y.
M. C. A. Juniors, for 4 o'clock Saturday
afternoon at Epworth Park. It was
further reported that cortaln price con
cessions had been secured in the pic
nic arrangements, which would give
the refreshment committeo 3 cents per
person more, to devoto to the menu.
Only, a committee that has planned a
menu for a hundred people can realize
just how much an oxtra three cents
per capita may mean, In the way of
ice-cream, oranges, and other dainties,
But suffice to say, that every picnicker
who comes will be well fed; there will
be plenty of fun for everybody; and
altogether it will be perhaps the pleas
antest event of the Junior college year.
Tho picnickers will go on special
street cars, which will leave Eleventh
and R streets promptly at 1:20 Satur
day p. m. All Juniors aro urged to
buy their tickets at once. The commit
tee wlli .take care of everybody that
comes, to tho picnic; but In order to
cut down expenses, it is important
that the committeo know the day be
fore about how many wjll attend. Tic
kets, may be had of Mary E. Brown,
