Download PDF for this date

A student organization at Hunter College, one of the components of the University of the City of New York, announced today it has invited as speakers both George Lincoln Rockwell, head of the American Nazi Party, and Gus Hall, general secretary of the Communist Party of the United States.

The announcement was made by Harlan P. Kleiman, a founder of a new Hunter College campus organization, the Competency Party. Kleiman is also president of the student government. He said Rockwell will address the students April 11, while Hall will speak on the campus two weeks later. The campus newspaper, The Uptowner, criticized the invitation to Rockwell.
