One hundred and nineteen participants in the third annual Yale-Harvard-Princeton Conference on Public Affairs, including 29 prominent guests, will be welcomed at 1:00 o'clock today by Provost Edgar S. Furnise of Yale, replacing President Seymour, who has a sprained ankle.
After the luncheon the Conference will get to work, separating into five tables, each devoted to a single subject of current interest. The discussions will be led by students.
