TYDA's Role as Red Front Revealed
Young Stabbing Victim
Still In Critical Condition

Shaffer, in those days an
avowed Party member, soon be-
came influential in local MYDA
affairs, and when MYDA was
banned from campus by Presid-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven in
1947, Shaffer took over the
chairmanship of the group.
At the time, Daily City Editor
Dick Maloy called Shaffer "an ac-
tive member of the Ralph Naefus
Club," Communist cell still oper-
ative in Ann Arbor.
The seven-year-old son of a
University faculty member re-
mained on the "very critical" list
late last night, a day and a half
after his six-year-old playmate
"took a dare" and stabbed him in
A doctor at St. Joseph Mercy
Hospital,, where the boy is being
treated, "said that chances for his
survival "are not good."

The Campus League of Women
Voters is getting under way again
now that they have become affili-
ated v'ith the Ann Arbor League.
The group,-open to all interest-
ed University women, met last
night to discuss tax organization
and uses. Leading the informal
discussion, Sue Riggs,''54, newly
elected temporary president was
assisted by Mrs. A. Preston of the
Ann Arbor League.
Plans are being made by the
League for local taxation reforms
in the near future.
Although the campus group is. a'
part of the Ann Arbor League it
does not take a definite stand on
any issue since its main objective
is. to inform University women of
the workings of their government.

Ruthven turned down the gather-

hottest incidents in recent Univer-
After an abortive open-air,
meeting in Felch Park, where Eis-
ler was snowballed by a huge mob,
Shaffer adjourned to his room at
530 Hill Street. There, Eisler and
Carl Marzani, another Party
wheel, held a press conference and
addressed a crowd of about 150
students from the porch.
More recently, Shaffer figured
prominently in the McPhaul
Dinner investigations last year.
The idea of bringing McPhau,.
to the Union "was mine," Shaf-
fer told The Daily later.
Now working on a Ph.D. in eco-
nomics, Shaffer is a close adviser
of the present Communist youth
front, the Labor Youth League,
attending their meetings and at
least once last year distributing

The current front, LYL, enjoyed
locally only a brief above-ground
existence. It disappeared tempo-
rarily with passage of Michigan's
famous Trucks Act, which would
in effect have required all members
of groups on the attorney general's
list to register with state authori-
ties. With the Act still snarled in
the process of judicial interpreta-
tion, however, the League sur-
prised local branches of federal
and state authorities by emerging
into public view once more.
In a letter published in The
Daily on Oct. 15, 1952, four stu-
dents registered an official

sons' refusal to rent their Tem-

geologists to find out depth and
composition of the crust on the
