New Lecture Hall will assume an almost military appearance tonight due to the large number of cops expected for HYD's Civil Rights Meeting, scheduled to start at 7:45 o'clock. Speakers include Gerhart Eisler, Carl Marsani, and Professor Lyman R. Bradley of N.Y.U.
Eisler, an avowed Communist, has recently been convicted of passport violations and contempt of the Un-American Committee. He is now out on ball pending the outcome of his appeal.
Marzani, a former OSS and State Department agent who chose the targets for Doolittle's Tokyo raid, has been found guilty of making false statements on government applications.
Bradley was found guilty of contempt of the Un-American Committee for refusing to reveal certain names, and, soon after, was ousted from his chairmanship of N.Y.U.'s German Department.
