Loyalty Oath
Acceptable to
Vi'NROTC
Protests Flood
Harvard Chapter
The Naval Reserve Officer
,raining Corps "loyalty oath"
which has met a flood of protests
and petitions at Harvard Univer-
;ity has been accepted here with-
but complaint, according to Capt.
RIomer Wheeler, of the University
branch of the NROTC.
The oath which was first used
lere last semester requires NROTC
Applicants to signify if they have
een members of, or had sympa-
hetic association with, any of the
ubversive organizations listed by
he Attorney General in 1947.
* * *
IN ADDITION, THE trainees
nust notify authorities if . they
know any persons in the employ
f the government who are mem-
bers of the subversive organiza-
,lons.
The two clauses have stirred
considerable controversy at Har-
vard. Labeling these parts of the
loyalty oath the "sympathetic
association" and "stool pigeon"
clauses, nine campus groups
have asked President Conant to
press for removal of the ques-
tions.
T hey feared that an NROTC
nan might have to report any one
who had had any association with
i subversive group, such as those
-ttending a dance sponsored by
ne of the listed organizations, the
chool newspaper reported.
THE OATH is administered to
nen joining the Navy or applying
or promotions, in line with an
fficial order from the Secretary
)f the Navy, Capt. Wheeler said.
"The theory is that an individ-
al who joins the service swears
,o defend and support the Con-
titution against all enemies who
vould seek to overthrow the gov-
rnment," he said.
The captain said that the loyal-
y certificate does not have a
'stool pigeon" clause but that
(ROTC members must report gov-
rnment employees who are mem-
bers of subversive groups.
The "sympathetic association"
:lause means that a person who
8as attended a meeting or infor-
nal gathering of a listed group
nust so indicate in signing the
)ath. His association with that
group is then investigated, the
aptain said.

STOP, LOOK, READ:
Browsers Receive Warm Welcome
*~ * * *
By PAUL BRENTLINGER
"Come in and browse" is the
motto of the campus community's
newest academic hangout.
And people really do browse, ac-
cording to Bob Marshall, propri-
etor of the unique book store fo-
cated in the basement of a State
St. building.

"ABOUT 50 people come in each
day and look around without buy-
ing a book," Marshall reported.
He has encouraged such activity
by installing several old kitchen
stools throughout the store, enab-
ling customers to browse in com-
fort.
"Several people have come in,
sat down, and read through an
entire book in an afternoon,"
Marshall said. "But the most
enthusiastic browser I ever saw
here was the man who came in
one day and read an entire
book while standing up."
The local store is not Marshall's
first experience in running a base-
ment book store near a large uni-
versity campus.He ran a similar
establishment near the Univer-
sity of Chicago campus while a
student in the Chicago Theologi-
cal Seminary.
* * *
"THAT STORE was more com-
plete than this one, it had a big
fireplace which gave it more at-
mosphere," he remarked.
Though Marshall prepared
himself for the ministry, and
actually did some preaching
while in Chicago, his diverse in-
terests carried him to work out-
side the church. From Chicago
he went to Detroit to manage a
large union book store-the one
operated by the United Auto-
mobile Workers.
"I found this work very inter-
esting, but I wanted to run a per-
sonal book store all my own, so
I began searching for an ideal
small town in which I could open
such a shop," Marshall said. His
search finally led him to Ann Ar-
bor, and he opened his local base-
ment emporium last October.

f campus-wide mobilizations tos

ig houses will also be given per-
)nal coverage, Bisdee said.
"Our overall plan is to con-
front every student in the Uni-
versity and get him to sign the
petition. Person to person con-
tact is the key to reaching the
students," he declared.
Bisdee indicated that three out
f every four students approached

NO MODERN "best-sellers" are
to be found in Marshall's shop.
"I try to carry good, solid
stuff in fields I know something
about," he explained. "I want
to learn the personal tastes of
a comparatively small clientele,
and then give personal service
to each of my customers," he
continued.
Marshall emphasizes the sale of
new and second hand books about
equally. To get the "good, solid
stuff" which he likes, he visits
junk yards, public auction sales,
other booksellers and any other

likely looking spot that might
contain worthwhile books.
GRADUATE STUDENTS and
faculty members make up the bulk
of Marshall's customers. They of-
ten come up with unique requests
for books, but Marshall attempts
to fill any request, no matter how
strange it may be.
His customers often conduct
bull sessions among themselves
and with Marshall about the
merits of certain books, or even
on political points of view.
Always interested in political
a f f a i r s, Marshall occasionally
posts an open letter on his shop's
bulletin boards which shows how
he stands on certain political is-
sues.

Shakespeare's "King Lear," the
Speech department's latest pro-
duction, is scheduled to go on the
boards of the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre for a four-night stand
March 29 through April 1.
The story, dealing with the in-
gratitude of child to father and
father to child, is considered the
most calamitous of Shakespeare's
tragedies. Based on Holinshed's
"Chronicle" of the life and death
of King Lear and his three daugh-
ters Goneril, Regan and Cordelia,
the play was written in 1606 and
first produced before the Court at
Whitehall the same year.
The production of "King
Lear" will be under the direc-
