According to Miss Campbell and
Norris, who were interviewed sep-
arately by the Committee, they were
questioned in part as to assertions
made in a Letter to the Editor pub-
lished in The Daily on Nov. 26, and
signed by Norris.
A statement prepared by Miss
Campbell and Norris said that the
faculty committee inquired into a
party sponsored by the ASU in the
League on Oct. 8. The committee,
Miss Campbell stated, insisted that
minor violations ofthe rules for
obtaining rooms for use by any stu-
dent organization had been made.
Norris said questions were levied
concerning the debate between Prof.
Preston W. Slosson of the history de-
partment and Mr. Bert Witt, national
executive secretary of the ASU on
Nov. 11, in the Union Ballroom.
The Committee charged, he said,
that following the granting of the
use of the Ballroom by the ASU, the
nature of the meeting had been
changed from a forum in which four
approved speakers were to discuss
"Can Armistice Day Mark A Re-
newed Fight for Peace" to a debate
between Witt and Professor Slosson
