its initial victory today in the Legis-
Sen. Miller Dunckel (Rep., Three
Rivers), one of the sponsors of anti-

plans to kill a measure designed to

which would make it a felony to ad-
vocate the overthrow of the govern-
ment. The hearing will be held at 10
o'clock next Thursday morning be-
fore the judiciary committee. It will
not be an open inquiry.
Senator Dunckel said he will have
his bill returned to Senate state af-
fairs committee where it will remain.
"We are definitely killing the bill,"
the senator said.
"The bill, after a thorough study,
has been found to be without merit.
Our purpose this season in anti-com-
munism bills has been to obtain new
weapons against those who advocate
the overthrow of the government.
"This bill would deny the ballot to
a particular party. It is not in lineC
with the general purpose of our other
measures. I believe it would pass the
Senate but I am having the bill killed."
Labor delegates were denied a hear-
ing on the punitive bill before it
passed the Senate. Spokesmen said
today they may attempt a public hear-
ing after the one before the judiciary
committee next week.

Statement o f I
Lecture Policy
Five Questions Answered
By Group Of Prominent
University Men
Answers to five questions were sub-
mitted to Prof. Carl Brandt, secretary;
of the University Committee on Lec-
ture Policy, last night by a group
of 20 prominent students, who were
asked to submit a basis for a defini-
tive statement of policy following
their protest against the University's
withholding of permission for John
Strachey to speak in Hill Auditorium.
The questions, together with sug-
gestions of the committee, were sub-
mitted by Wilbert L. Hindman, Grad.,;
and Edward H. Litchfield, '36, win-
ner of the National Public Discus-
sions Contest, member of the Varsity
debating team, and chairman of this
year's Spring Parley.x
First, was asked, "What constitutes
a responsible organization?"
Secondly, the nature of the proced-
ure by which such an organization
may go about to obtain the use of a
University building was asked.
"What must be the personal quali-
fications of a lecturer?" was the third
The fourth question asked what
limitations are placed on the subject
matter of a lecture to be given in aj
University building.
Lastly, the student group asks,
"What definite provisions relating to
lecture policy exist in the By-Laws
of the Board of Regents and in deeds
of gift of University buildings?"
"We believe," the group concludes,
"that the use of University grounds
(that is, walks, steps, and other out-
of-door parts of the campus) for lec-
tures, assemblages, demonstrations,
parades, etc., should be subject to no
restriction whatsoever, so long as it.

Anderson Quits As Move
To Establish Custom Of
Although having one more year to
serve, Russell F. Anderson, '36, re-
signed as president of the Student
Christian Association yesterday, the 1
resignation to take effect at the end
of the current semester.
Anderson stated that the reasons
for his handing in his resignation
were twofold. "First," he said, "the,
plan of electing a junior to the presi-
dency should be established as a regu-
lar procedure in order to unify the
work of Lane Hall. As matters are
now, the building is entirely student-
managed, and thus with the gradu-
ation of each senior president the I
experience gained is lost."
Anderson will remain on the S.C.A.
cabinet and serve in an advisory ca-
pacity. The retaining of the past
president as an advisor will thus give
the staff of the S.C.A. "continuity
and stableness."
"The second reason for my resign-
ing," Anderson continued, "is to fin-
ish up a book I am writing which
will deal with contemporary college
life." Anderson has already had one
book published.
At the present time there are sixI
sophomores on the S.C.A. cabinet
and from this group the next S.C.A.
president will be selected. Petitions
for the position must be submitted
to Anderson by May 5, and the elec-
tion will be held in the next three or
four weeks.
