SULLIVAN SILENT ON LAMPOON CHARGE THAT HE'S COMMUNIST

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

City Councilman Michael A. Sullivan last night refused to say whether he would ask Police Chief Timothy Leahy to ban copies of the new issue of the Harvard Lampoon, which "exposes" him as the "brains" of American Communism.

In an issue almost completely devoted to Sullivan, the magazine claimed that while masquerading as an "Irish petty politician" the Ward 6 representative was really carrying out the commands of his old leader, Lenin. Sullivan's real name is given as Mikail Akim Seratov, and a picture of "Seratov" sitting on the arm of the Communist leader's chair is printed. His attempt to get the words "Lenin and Leningrad" banned from all books in Cambridge is called a scheme to discredit anti-Reds through ridicule.

The Lampoon editorially attacks Sullivan and the people who think like him.
