(Continued from Page 1)
Here at the University, there
is currently an attempt to orga-
nize a Socialist Club, although
there has been no evidence so
far that this group has any con-
nection with either the LYL or
The two kinds of people who!

ter they get here-will continue
to gain as much influence in res-
pectable student groups as they
can. They will continue to attempt
bringing Communist speakers to
campus under the banner of free
speech, while the Lectures Com-
mittee will continue to disappoint
them, if they ever get as far asI
the Lecture Committee again.
Yet they will probably never
gain any sizeable following. Even
at .the University of Wisconsin,
where the LYL was a recognized
student organization, Leroy Lu-
berg, assistant to the president at
U-W, has said, "None of us felt
the LYL had any notable follow-
ing on this campus."
Limits To Freedoms
Probably the most convincing
explanation for this is that, de-
spite the abuses of Congressional
investigating committees, even
liberals are now accepting the
proposition that there are limits
to every freedom. including that
of speech, arid that a democracy
is not obliged to fan the fires of
its own destruction.
Neither the Communist Party
nor the LYL has ever shown much
real concern for any civil liber-
ties other than their own. But
there has been a preponderence
of evidence indicating that, if
they ever gained power here, they
would still be concerned only with
Still, the LYL has served a
worthwhile purpose on the cam-
pus. For one thing, it gave stu-
dents an opportunity to witness
their activity, to get an idea of
how it operates and what it is
attempting to accomplish.
At the same time, it has faced
students with . the problem of
finding the right balance be-3
tween freedom and security on a
local tangible basis. And students
are probably better off for it.
Many who were avid defenders of
the Party's freedom when Con-f
gressional committees made it a
national issue, needed only to
watch the LYL operate on the
campus in order to cool down aI
Also, the LYL, despite whatf
can and has been said against,
it, has been instrumental in bi'ing-
ing, continuing and exaggerating
some local issues before the stu-
dent body. Its excitability on the
racial discrimination problem, for
instance, has probably made some
contribution to the present'con-
cern of some student organiza-
tions for it, even if only to avoid
letting the LYL dominate the
field. Radical groups have always
been constructive in that they
spur otherwise apathetic people to
improvement in order to eliminate
the dissatisfaction on which the
radical groups feed,
In retrospect, the LYL has not
been a bad thing for the Uni-
versity, although troublesome from
time to time, and certainly inter-
esting until last year. Its biggest
fault was that it remained a sec-
ret group, which captured every-
one's suspicion, especially mine.
