Winchell Raps Schlesinger Jr. For 'Red Professors' Position

Columinist Walter Winchell last night rapped Arthur D. Schlestuger Jr. '37, associate professor of History, for his conviction that Communists should be allowed to teach in universities, so long as they do not disqualify themselves by intellectual distortions in the classroom.

Said Winchell, "His naivete is frightening."

Winchell's column carried the Schlesinger paragraph in conjunction with a castigation of the Hariford Board of Education, which had voted to allow singer Paul Robeson to use Hartford's Weaver high School auditorium for a contest in behalf of the Progressive Party.
