Look to Increased Unity
By MURRY FRYMER
"We're stereotyped," Seymour
Greenstone, '55, explained as one
of the difficulties of the Young Re-
publican Club here.
The YR's won't expand too much
on that short expresion, but most
of the executives, at least, feel that
the club and perhaps campus po-
litical groups in general are not
understood by the students.
THE YOUNG Republican Club
has been the victim of too much
dissension in the past two years.
Not that a difference of opinion
is not a healthy state of affairs,
but the YR's have not been able
to absorb this difference and the
result has been loss to the group
of many previously interested per-
Mal Schlusberg, President of
the YR's, says that the group has
less dissension now than it has
for a long time. "The extremists
have quit," he says.
Yet even- now, there are evi-
dences of a somewhat larger than
necessary split between its so-
called "liberal" and "conservative"
"We're the most liberal group on
campus," says Greenstone. "We
believe in the republic as it was
founded. Those who want changes

THE RANGLE over the affirma-
tion of the 1954 club platform
brought hot debate as members
formed into two steady groups to
vote on free trade, compulsory
unionism, minimum wage laws,
and certain questions of civil
rights. Free trade was dropped by
a majority of one vote, and com-
pulsory unionism by a somewhat

TIM RICHARD, '57, a member
of the YR executive board sees
it another way. "Those who yell
loudest, don't know what McCar-

Again, concerning the cam-

commenter thought it was "a
smear campaign to end all
smear campaigns," while an-
other called it "unnecessary and
negative, inciting hate." Only

THE YR'S say their purpose on
campus is to serve as a source for
future leaders of the Republican
Party. Acting in much closer
agreement with the Republican
party than the YD's do with the
Democratic Party, the YR's say
they accept all the views of the
national GOP as stated in the
"We are primarily a political
organization, not educational,"
says Greenstone. "We want to
provide a sounding board to give
voice to a Republican campus."
Many members of the YR take
membership most interest lies in
tion work, yet because of a diverse
an active part in Ann Arbor elec-
national affairs. As a rule, the
Club avoids taking stands on cam-
pus issues and problems.
Current difficulties include the
common complaint of student apa-
thy, which according to old mem-
bers, is most evident in non-elec-
tion semesters. The YR's complain
also of inadequacy of funds, and
