HYRC Group Hits McCarran Bill; Club Will Debate Law Democrats

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two members each from the Law School Democratic Club and the Young Republican Club will debate the merits of the present state administration over radio station WMEX to 10 p.m. Friday night. Paul A. Freund, professor of Law, will moderate.

Law School Democrats David H. Vernon 2L and N. Ronald Silberstein 2L will take the negative against young Republican Roger A. Moore '53 and Bernard h. Sacher 3L on "Resolved, That Massachusetts needs a Republican administration."

This is the second of three radio debates between the clubs. The first was held last Friday on the subject, "Resolved, That the registration provision of the McCarran Bill should be repealed."

The clubs will give a ten dollar prize for the best letter commenting on the three debates.

The Young Republican club's Civil Liberties Committee called the McCarran Bill "un-American, unworkable, and unworthy of the name of law" in a statement made last night by Herbert C. G. Feinstein 3L, committee chairman.

Robert E. Doane 3L, Bernard B. Pollak 3L, and Feinstein have been studying the provisions of the bill and maintain that the detention camp, restrictive immigration, and alien deportation provisions are the "worst parts of the act."

The group also asserted that the quick vote by Truman was "a camouflage. He could have pocked vetoed the act since Congress was anxious to adjourn to go home for election campaigning."

The Young Republican club will discuss the problems presented by the new law at a general business meeting on October 31 at 8 p.m. in Phillips Brooks House.
