JOHN REED SOCIETY SETS REVIVAL DATE

Organization Will Welcome Marxists or Conservatives

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

No red flag waving, no parades or riots, but only study and meditation on Marxist philosophy are the aims of the rejuvenated John Reed Society, Sam Stuart 2D, former member of the pre-war group, declared yesterday. Dedicated to John Reed '11, who died in Russia during the Bolshevik revolution, the society--the only Communist organization in the University--plans to hold its initial meeting early next week.

The Name John Reed

The name John Reed, which should be familiar to all English Aa Students through his "Almost Thirty" is that of the foreign correspondent, who took a roving commission through Europe in the 1910 to 1920 period. As a newspaperman, Reed covered the Russian revolution and the Mexican revolt, becoming a close friend of Pancho Villa.

Founded in 1930, nine years after Reed's death, the society has hopes of an active membership drawn not only from the radically red, but also from die-hard conservatives. How they propose to lure the conservatives Stuart did not reveal.
