Davis said that he had been
asked to answer questions on sev-

At the present time, Davis' legal

another reason for the necessity
to restrict the discussion to con-
tract, tenure, appointment, and
severance pay.
The SL motion, which will be
made by Paul Dormont, '55, and

Held in New York City, this is

which he will conduct.
Today, Dean Stason will act as
chairman of a round table session
entitled "Significance of the Pa-

According to Mrs. Doris Mc-
Laughlin, secretary to the Secre-
tary of the, law school, "It is an
organization of industries with an
educational rather than a propa-
gandist function-a clearing house
for new ideas."
Approximately 3,000 industrial-
