Lynch Thought Discussion 'Hoax,' But Will Still Debate Schlesinger


City councillor John D. Lynch said yesterday that he thought the scheduled debate with Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. '38, associate professor of History, on "How to Combat Communism in the United States" was a "big hoax."

But the sponsors of the debate, the democratic Club, assured Lynch that the debate is no hoax and will come of as announced; 8 p.m. tomorrow at Emerson D.

Lynch said that he received a telephone call Friday asking him to debat with Schlesinger on "the bad effects of communism." The man on the phone said Schlesinger would point out the assets of communism while Lynch would illustrate the bad parts.

"Reducator' List

In the City Council this fall, Lynch introduced a bill to give the police the "Reducator" list, naming 68 faculty members, including Schlesinger, as "Communists, communist sympathizers, or fellow travelers."
