An estimated 300 students, teachers, and trade union representatives will tramp the narrow safety island running up Huntington Avenue tonight bearing placards decrying the America First Committee's rally in Mechanics Hall.
Harvard pickets are coming from most of the College's politically minded organizations, but they will be unofficial delegates, assembled tonight under the aegis of Fight for Freedom. They will parade "in a peaceful manner feeling that that is a good way of expressing ear position to what the America First Committee stands for."
The Harvard Committee, headed by W. Milbank Pillsbury '42, president of the Student Defense League, "is prepared for demonstrations but intend to provoke none." The pickets will be organized into "disciplined groups of 20 each, bolsteral by experienced picketers from trade unions."
