City Ramblers concerts at Ly-
dia Mendelssohn seemed to ap-
peal more to the society's mem-
bers because the performers
played more "genuine" country
folk music in a smaller, more
personal atmosphere.
In addition to concerts, the
society has arranged a number
of workshops at the Ark cof-
feehouse with the Ark's per-
formers. Although the Ark has
given the society use of its fa-
cilities, the organizations re-
main separate.
This summer the society has
already run one "mini-concert"
with Bobby Clancy of the Irish
Clancy Brothers. A folk ar-

The society also offers its
members a record club. Through
volume purchase, members
bought Gordon Bok's recent al-
bum at a 45 per cent discount.
The group is also trying to
reinstate the American Folk-
lore course in the engineering
college humanities department.
"I'd say we've come a long
way," says Lois Klafter, an of-
ficer ,of the society. "Our inter-
est is in traditional folk. We'd
like to get more people to per-
form for us who have grown
up with the music."

House votes to expand
subversive board's role

WASHINGTON (P) - The House
shouted down an attempt to
scrap the Subversive Activities
Control Board yesterday. Then
it voted 226 to 145 to empower
the President to revitalize the
panel with new work under a
new name.
Oponents headed by Rep. Don
Edwards (D-Calif.) claimed the
revisions recommended by the
Internal Security" Committee
could prompt "a new era of
McCarthyism" by excluding peo-
ple from federal jobs through
guilt by association.
But sponsors of the change,
led by Rep. John Ashbrook (R-
Ohio), maintained the legisla-
tion endorsed by the Nixon ad-

ministration is necesary to pro-
tect the government from mo-
dern sources of subversion.
By voice vote, the H o u s e
turned down a proposal by Rep.
Richardson Preyer (D-N.C.) that
would have abolished SACB and
created a Federal Employe Se-
curity and Appeals Commission.
The Preyer bill would h a v e
set up a "constitutional o a t h
support" law containing machin-
ery for screening federal job
applicants on loyalty and secur-
ity grounds.
The Ashbrook bill, which was
sent to the Senate where it is
expected to encounter f r e s h
dificulty, would rename SACB
the Federal Internal Security
Board. This board would be as-
signed news tasks of helping spot
subversives and of keeping taem
out of federal jobs.
President Nixon sought to do
this by executive order last year
by making the board the agency
to determine who should go on
the attorney general's list of
subversive organizations.
But the oroer was challen-ed
in federal court. Ajudge, while
dismissing the suit, indicated he
would set the order aside for
vagueness and overbreadth if
enforcement is attempted.
The five-member. board is 22
years old. Those on it, eAch
drawing $36,000 a. year, did vir-
tually nothing for months fefter
the Supreme Court overruled
their power to hunt, register and
publicize Communist groups.
The Ashbrook bill gives t he
new board subpoena power and
the authority to go to court to
enforce its orders.
