AuthorSays Kennedy Urged Not To Go to


AP Special Correspondent
NEW YORK UP-Five promi-
nent Democrats strongly urged
President John F. Kennedy to
omit Dallas from the itinerary of
his fateful tour of Texas in No-
vember, 1963, because they feared
the highly charged atmosphere of
antagonism to him in the city.
"Dallas is a very dangerous
place," Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D.-
.Ark., was quoted as -telling the
President. "I wouldn't go there.
Don't you go."
Four other men expressed grave
anxieties about Kennedy's inten-
tion to visit Dallas, William Man-
chester reports in his controversial
book, "The Death of a President "

LSA Faculty
To Continue
Draft Debate
Questions of Ranking,
Deferment on Agenda
For Regular Meeting
At their regular monthly meet-
ing tonorrow, the literary college
faculty wil continue their discus-
sion on the questions of student
deferments and class ranking and
possibly prepare a formal state-
ment of their position on these is-
On the table from last month's
meeting are two separate resolu-
tions on ranking presented by
Prof. Daniel Katz of the psycho-
logy department and Prof. Rich-
ard Beardsley of the anthropology
In the interim between meet-
ings, however, Prof. E. Lowell
Kelly of the psychology depart-
ment prepared substitute state-
ments on both the student defer-
ment and class ranking issues.
The portion of Kelly's statement
concerned with student deferment
was asubstitute resolution for an
earlier proposal presented by Prof.
Edward S. Bordin and Prof. John
French of the psychology depart-
ment. Kelly's resolution, "A Sub-
stitute Resolution on Student De-
ferment," clarified Bordin and
French's resolution and was signed
by Kelly and Bordin and five other
literary college professors: Donald
R. Brown and Daniel Katz of
psychology and Frank Grace, Nor-
man Thomas, and Robert Ward of
the political science department.
The portion of Kelly's statement
concerned with class ranking sug-
gests that perhaps a "straw poll
of the literary college faculty
would be better and more instruc-
tive than a formal resolution on
the ranking issue. The poll would
ask essentially what form aca-
demic information on a student
should take (transcript, rank, etc.)
and to whom the information
should be sent (local draft board
or other).
In his 11 page statement, Kelly
rejects the possibility that the
compilation and submission of
class rank is a separate issue for
the literary college faculty to take
a stand on.
Beardsley said yesterday that
his resolution on ranking will
probably remain tabled since Kel-
ly's statement (resolution and
poll) cover the issue more tho-
roughly. Neither Katz nor Beards-
ley, however, are planning to for-
mally withdrawn their resolutions
in view of the Kelly statement.

To Our Readers
The first issue of the "Midwest Literary Review" appears
as a supplement in today's Daily. In this Inter-collegiate pub-
lication, the Daily joins the University of Chicago and such
scattered institutions as Loyola, Valparaiso, and Lake Vorest.
The review will be published cooperatively each month and
distributed to colleges and universities throughout the Mid-West.
All types of contemporary writing will be investigated by
the Review, along with the many-horned dilemmas of modernj
publishing. The Review will function as a relevant voice on the
published fiction and fact which engulfs every college student.
Also, the "syndication" of the Review will provide a channel
for the wider exchange of student thought. Persons interested
