AVC Chapter Passes Anti-UMT Resolution

One more college organization lined up against Universal Military Training last night when the University chapter of the American Veterans Committee adopted a 23-19 resolution against a UMT program in a forum meeting at Phillips Brooks House.

Before voting on the resolution, the veterans heard Roger Cutler, Jr., assistant attorney general of Massachusetts, debate Thomas Mahony, Chairman of the New England Committee Against Conscription, on the benefits of UMT.

The resolution, binding on the chapter's delegates to next summer's AVC convention, asserted that UMT would be "irritant in international relations."
