Dr. A. W. Harris, president of Northwestern university, was one of the speakers at the big mass meeting in Orchestra hall, Chicago, Sunday, called for the purpose of determining whether or not the people were in favor of the action the police are taking in closing the segregated districts. All the speakers praised the work of the police and stated that they believed the districts should be closed and kept closed. Dr. Harris said segregation was dangerous because it was likely to be taken as a remedy. He asserted that dispersion could not be called a cure, but that it was preferable, because it incited the public to action, while segregation favored neglect.
