FOOD RELIEF PLANS FORUM

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

After two months of preparation, including several small meetings, distribution of pamphlets, petitions, and a network program, the Harvard Committee to Feed the Small Democracies is ready to put on a full-dress plea for support at 8 o'clock tonight in the Lowell House Common Room, where four prominent men will discuss all possible sides of the question.

First on the list of speakers is Bart J. Bok, associate professor of Astronomy, and ardent Faculty supporter of the food plan, who will tell why the problem of food relief is of immediate and pressing importance. Following him is Lucien Brouha, physiologist to the Grant Study, who plans to cover the physiological aspects of hunger. Third speaker is William Y. Elliott, professor of Government, who opposes the plan unless it is done through the auspices of the United States Government. Finally, Henry J. Cadbury, Hollis Professor of Divinity, who has recently returned from Europe, will discuss the relation of the British blockade to food relief. Following these introductory speeches there will be a cross-examination among the speakers, and a discussion from the floor.

Meeting to Be Broadcast

For further publicity, the committee has arranged to have its meeting broadcast over the Crimson Network, in what network officials call their first broadcast from one of the common rooms, and the experimental inauguration of a new service. Also, pamphlets describing the meeting and outlining the plan have been distributed throughout the college

in the last few days.

Advocates of the plan have felt so strongly that something should be done that they have aroused an unusual amount of activity around Harvard, and are planning to continue their work. Their goal, of course, is to stimulate all the interest in this country that they can, and by so doing, bring about action either through the direct sanction of the British government, or by persuading our own government to sell the idea to Britain
