Willkie Backers
In Law School
Organize 300
)c~ae Challenge Is IsstIl
To Head Of Roosevelt
Clb; Date Not Yet Set
Determined to dispel any notion
that the Law School "is a Roosevelt
stronghold" a committee of Willkie
backers in the Law School have ob-,
tained the pledges of 300 law students
to support the GOP candidate and
have issued a challenge to the Young
Lawyers For Roosevelt Club to debate
the issues of the campaign.
The Willkie Committee is composed
of James Teahan, jr., '41L, chairman,
Wendell Miles, '42L, James French.
'41L, Harold Streator, '41L, Charles
Johnson, A41L, Phillip W. Buchen,
'41L, Stark Ritchie, '41L, Robert
Clark, '41L, and Joseph Bartley, '41L.
The group declared that the chal-
lenge to debate had been delivered to
Fred Niketh, '41L, as leader of the
Roosevelt Club. The place and time
for the debate have not been ar-y
The committee issued the follow-"
ing statement: "Any misapprehen-d
;ion that the Law School is a Roose-
velt stronghold is strikingly dispelled
by the large number of students who
have signed pledges to support the
candidacy of Wendell Willkie. A
challenge for a debate upon the issues
of the campaign has been delivered
to Fred Niketh as leader of the Roose-
velt club. It is trusted that they
will not show the same relucance tot
face the issues so important to theV
American people that President Roo-F
sevelt has. Contrary to the views ofb
Niketh and other New Dealers, we be-n
lieve that the third term and thet
dangerous tendencies of perpetuatingS
one man in office are issues, and im-t
portant ones, in this campaign. We
also believe that Roosevelt's record
in the administration of his domestic
program raises a serious issue, which
cannot be obscured by 'defense in-
spection tours'."

Atty. George J Burke declared, "Our
principle in penal administration
should be to re-examine present

Dramatists To Do
'3 Men On Horse'
Here Wednesday
Irwin, the amateur race track dope-
ster with the infallible system, is the
hero of "Three Men On a Horse,"
which Play Production will perform
Wednesday through Saturday nights
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Thaetre.
The farce, by John Cecil Holm and
George Abbot, deals with the troubles
of a meek little poet who writes greet-
ing-card verses for a living. He does
this in spite of the fact that he has
an uncanny faculty for picking the
horses, and could make more money
by betting on his choices.
Irwin is afraid to give up the drud-
gery of turning out 60 Mother's Day
greetings a week, and make his living
as a professional better because he
thinks it might break his luck at
picking winners if he actually played
the races.
This will be the initial offering of
the year for Play Production, and will
be directed by Prof. Valentine B.
Windt, of the speech department.
