Proposed amendments that would radically alter the Wagner Labor Relations Act will be contested in open session of the Harvard Congress at 7:45 tonight in the Winthrop Common Room.
The meeting modeled on the Oxford Union and the Yale Political Union, aims to give practice in extemporaneous discussion on matters of current interest.
Amendments to the proposed bill may be offered from the floor, and all attending are eligible to participate in the debate. Those favoring the bill will sit apart from opponents of the measure in parliamentary fashion.
Delivering the majority report of the committee to draw up the bill, Brain-bridge Crist '39 and David W. Childs '39 will favor compulsory incorporation of labor unions, outlawing of sitdown strikes, and the granting of coercive powers to the National Labor Relations Board. Lawrence F. Ebb '39, will present the minority report.
