YD's Support Peace Corps
By BUEL TRAPNELL f -,.^. vnt-vu +H

The college division of. the Mich-
igan Young Democrats Sunday
passed a resolution endorsing and
actively supporting the peace
corps movement in the United
However, the delegates to the
state convention, held at the
Michigan Union, warned of "a
real danger that loyalty oaths may
be required of all the peace corps
members" and the corps "may
become another cold war weapon"
because the administration has set
the corps up under the State De-
Further noting the individuals

State Department policy, the res-
olution suggested "private volun-
tary associations and the United
Nations as sponsoring agents,"
should these threats become real-
The peace corps resolution in
effect supported the suggestions
that Alan Guskin, Grad., spokes-
man for the Americans Committed
to World Responsibility, gave in
the keynote speech.
Important Purpose
"The first and most important
purpose of the peace corps," Gus-
kin said, "is to assist in accelerat-
ing the process of economic and
social development in the develop-
ing areas of the world."
He set certain criteria for the
selection of peace corps workers.
"They cannot feel that they are
carrying a burden," he said.
They must be qualified, speak
the native language and work for
the people of the country to which
they are assigned, have a thorough
knowledge of the culture of that
country and be able to work well
in groups.
General Notions
Although admitting these are
general notions, Guskin stressed
that loyalty oaths and disclaimer
affadavits should not be a, part
of the entrance requirements..
He said a loyalty oath require-
ment would mean that "this is
an American governmental pro-
ject, rather than a project of the
world," Guskin said he wanted no
activists-Communist, capitalist or
religious-in the corps.
