Two other faculty sponsors of the C.L.A., Zechariah Chafee, Jr., University Professor, and Archibald MacLeish, Boylston Professor of Rhetoric and Oratory, will attend.

Others invited are: Jerome S. Bruner, associate professor of Social Psychology, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. '38, associate professor of History, Louis M. Lyons, Curator of Nieman Fellows, Robert G.
