Lewis A. Douglas to Give First Godkin Lecture Today on "Liberal Tradition"

Former Budget Director Delivers Talk in New Lecture Hall At 4.30 O'Clock

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Subjecting "The Liberal Tradition--A Free People and a Free Economy" to a rigid examination, Lewis W. Douglas, former director of the Budget, will deliver his first Godkin Lecture at 4.30 o'clock, this afternoon in the New Lecture Hall.

These annual lectures, the most important given each year at Harvard, are open to the public. Because of Mr. Douglas' disagreement with President Roosevelt on financial policies, resulting in his resignation, even larger audiences are expected than those which filled the New Lecture Hall last May to hear Walter Lippmann '10 on "The Method of Freedom."

Mr. Douglas will arrive in Cambridge this morning to be the guest of President and Mrs. Conant. While he plans to return to New York tonight for business, he will return on Wednesday for his last three lectures.

His one other engagement in Cambridge is the CRIMSON dinner Wednesday evening at which he, Felix Frankfurter; Byrne Professor of Administrative Law, and Arthur A. Ballantine '04, former Under Secretary of the Treasury, will be the chief speakers.

In the few speeches which Mr. Douglas has given since he left office last summer, he has stressed the importance of formulating a program of legislation which does not strain the credit of the government. He has also been critical of the increasing role which the New Deal has taken in private industry.

A limited supply of free tickets may be had by applying at the information desk, University Hall.
