TWO MALIGN OLD GLORY
SOCIALIST SPELLBINDERS JAILED AFTER MAKING SPEECHES IN CITY HALL PARK.
New York. April 23.—Reba Edelson and Samuel Hartman, Socialist spellbinders, are in a cell wondering whether it is worthwhile to malign the United States flag. They told a crowd in City Hall park that Old Glory was not worth fighting for, and just as the audience started to prove otherwise the police arrested the orators.
