Harold J. Laski, high ranking British Labor party member, has been invited to speak at the Harvard Law Forum on April 26, Roland Brown 3L, president of the Forum, announced yesterday.
Commenting on the action of the University of California, which recently harred Laski from making two scheduled speeches, Brown said that the Law Forum was "fundamentally opposed" to the western college's policy if that policy was based on purely political grounds.
"Whether Laski is a Communist or a Socialist or not, he is still an outstanding figure," said Brown yesterday. "Many people want to hear Laski," Brown continued, "and we owe it to them to bring him here if we can."
Laski's lecture tour of American college campuses is being sponsored by the Sidney Hillman Foundation.
