By sponsoring tonight's meeting in the Union, at which Governor Allen of Kansas is to speak, the Student Liberal Club continues to carry out its expressed purpose--the encouragement of a fair and open-minded undergraduate attitude toward national problems. Those who have accused the club of fostering radicalism cannot deny that tonight's lecturer is an upholder of the conservative tradition. Governor Allen's firm stand in Kansas labor disputes, his system of strike settlement by legal procedure, and his opposition to the "closed shop", leave no doubt as to his stand on industrial questions.
Together with the recent lecture by Mr. Gompers, under the same auspices, the speech tonight provides a discussion from both sides of the present issue between Capital and Labor. The Liberal Club by bringing two such opposing authorities before the University has refuted the arguments of those who have attempted to brand the organization as partisan.
