CHICAGO. June 13. Present day news

delegates attending the annual Conven

of the World hero today.
Mr. Finn spoke of the "newspaper, the
advertiser and the advertising agent."
He declared that advertising Is the news
about merchandising and that there was
nothing oloser to the hearts of the read

University of Colorado Professor
Says Not Reappointed Because
of Activity in Labor War.
AMMONS DEMANDED HIS HEAD
BOULDER, Colo., June 2 2. Prof.
James H. Brewster of the law faculty
of the University of Colorado, who
failed to bo reappointed to his posi

In the spring of 191.
Authorities Dear It Is So.
Dr. Livingstone Farrand, president of
the university, wa out of town today
and could not be reached. aTflcally,
however, the university authorities de
nied that the removal of Brewster was
a result of his labor activity.
Brewster' statement was sddressed to
his former associates on the Taw faculty
of the University of Michigan. In It he
declared that his attitude regarding the
strike has so undermined him with the
regents that his reappointment became
Impossible. On May 7, th statement ad
ded, he received a telegram from Frank
P. Walsh, chairman of th United States
commission on Industrial relations, asking-
him to testify before the commis
sion at Washington. He showed the
message to President Farrand. The
statement went on:
Mast Take Choice.
"President Farrand told me that my
going to Washington was a matter- f
me to decide; but It I went my connec-
tton with the university must end. I
stated that I saw what I ought to do. as
as It would be difficult to obtain a sub
stitute for my work I would not go. II
said, 'That is much more comfortable,'
adding that 'he also must say that If I
did not go, I must not regard my re
maining as entitling me to reappoint

A state of preparedness was maintained
today, however, both by th polio and
military autliorltlea. There appeared no
further evidence of the gathering of a
crowd In the vicinity of Governor ba
ton's suburban home.
The Frank case still was discussed on I
the streets, but the groups were those
ordinarily seen on the busier corners. '
Today's calm apparently was welcoming
by a majority of Atlanta residents. Local

th oapltol yestir.. jy, whn resolutions
were passed condemning- Governor Bla

those Immediately concerned. Th rush
on Governor Slaton's horn last night
was th result of an Impulsive sugges

th crowd "pay th governor a call."
At three point along th rout to th

main body reached tha estate shortly bo

martial law within a son of one-half

companies of militia.
Crowd la Leaderless.
No effort was mad by any on to
enter the governor's grounds. Barbed
wir entanglements had been stretched
across mo driveways and along the
grounds just within th enclosing walls
The crowd appeared to be entirely lead

parent anger to good humor. Missiles
were hurled at th soldier until soma

was dispersed by th soldiers and left
