and help organize a student defense
committee on this campus.
Included in this committee's funcr-
tions, the resolution read, should be
the encouragement of blood dona-

dents in the defense courses of the

ing the suggestion to the University

posal by appointing a committee of

formation of the new- group. The.
Senate's new committee, headed by
Margaret Campbell as chairman, is
further composed of William Ellman,
'43, and Robert Alpern, '43Bld.
Also included in the resolution were
the proposals that the student's de-
fense committee on campus should

mittee chairman in charge of the
