Three Crimson delegates shipped off to a facsimile model of the United Nations at Chicago University yesterday, and are currently embroiled in political bandying of the pros and cons of issues ranging from national sovereignty to world-wide culture programs.
Edwin C. Jordan '50, Christopher Wright '49, and Paul L. Wright '49 are representing Harvard and the United States at the Chicago-sponsored model world-government meeting which will feature talks by Warren Austin, U. S. delegate to the U. N., Oscar Lange, Polish Ambassador to the U S., and Senator Claude Pepper.
The parley will continue through tomorrow, with each of the nation's major colleges representing the opinion of one member of the U. N. The purpose of the gathering is to promote understanding of the internal functions of world government and its aims by affording students an opportunity to work within its structure.
Also, according to the United Nations Council of Harvard, the three day gathering on the Chicago campus may be instrumental in the formation of a permanent nation-wide forum of students to study international issues in close contact with men cognizant of these issues through their work in the U. N.
Jordan is upholding the United States' end on the Committee of Security and Politics and in discussions of the Veto Power. Meanwhile the two Wrights take to the rostrum over social, cultural, and humanitarian problems and over the present government of Spain and its international significance.
