Offered By Lances
Some time ago the faculty had indirectly turned down the group's
request for recognition by passing
a resolution saying no political group
would be recognized here.
Monday's action was only to approve the Democrat club and not to
give blanket recognition to all political clubs. A spokeman for the faculty
said each petition for recognition
.would be considered individually.
Campus Republican ieaaers have
sponsored a GOP club and spokesmen said steps soon would be taken
to make it legal on campus.
The Democratic Club is headed by
Thomas C. Carroll of the Law College.
He issued a statement saying:
"Students here are gratified at the
action of the faculty in recognizing
the organization of the club. It is
felt that such organizations will be
of real value to the University and
the state through the stimulation of
interest in practical political activities."
Carroll said the purpose of the
club will be to encourage registration
among the students for voting, to
encourage absentee voting and student discussions of political questions.
