Winkler Opposes Loyalty Oath at Berkeley Meeting

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harold Winker, former Professor of Political Science at the University of California who resigned last year rather than sign the loyalty oath, attacked the oath on October 9 at Berkeley before a meeting of the Students for Democratic Action. Winkler, who was at Harvard last spring as a Visiting Lecturer in Government and who will fill that post again this spring, stated that the declaration is destroying the traditions that are the basis for our civilization.

Claiming that there were over two hundred non-signers when the proposed oath was first announced, Winkler said that the number was narrowed to 20.

Winkler will lecture in Government 103 this spring, while Professor Holcome, who usually teaches the course, will be on leave. Winkler will also conduct the Government 208 seminar.
