Outlaw Star Chamber, Ask Leading Citizens
Angered over the treatment that Harlow Shapely received at the hands of a Congressional committee in star chamber proceedings, 69 Massachusetts lawyers, judges, businessmen, educators, and political luminaries have drafted a letter calling for "Congress to put its won house in order."
President Conant, Mildred McAfee Horton of Wellesley, and Karl T. Compton of M.I.T. were among those denouncing the "flagrant flouting of the rights of citizens."
Other College personages protesting were Roscoe Pound, Richard H. Field and Louis M. Lyons.
