HYRC Members Plan to Sponsor Speech by Wang

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Harvard Young Republican Club voted unanimously yesterday to co-sponsor a speech by segregationist David Wang.

At a general meeting open to all members, the HYRC decided to offer its assistance to the Harvard Liberal Union, which previously announced it would sponsor Wang in a debate.

HYRC operations director Alec B. Dawson '59, who is in charge of contacting the HLU, stated, "In no way should our action be construed as an endorsement of Wang. We merely feel that every opinion has a right to be expressed. We would like to cooperate with the Liberal Union in providing a vehicle for Wang in his attempt to express his opinions."

The Harvard Society for Minority Rights recently revoked its decision to sponsor Wang when it could find no member of the NAACP willing to debate Wang. The NAACP explained that its function does not include debating.
