GOP Committee Awaits HYRC Action by Deans

Founder of HYRC Will Arrive Today

By Bryce E. Nelson

Massachusetts State Republican Chairman Charles Gibbon, Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in last fall's election, said yesterday that any action the State Committee would take concerning the present HYRC election controversy would come after action by the University. He said he had released no further comment on the matter.

Gibbon stated that he had been misrepresented in the 11:30 p.m. WHRB newscast of Feb. 27. He denied having told WHRB the following things which were broadcast over the station: that he was disturbed by the HYRC dispute, that the State Committee was planning to look into the matter further, and that action would come only after a report of the special HYRC investigating committee. Gibbon said that he had not even heard of the special committee.

Investigating Committee Meets

The HYRC Committee met yesterday, examining evidence refuting charges brought against the Stalker faction. Student Council President Larry R. Johnson '58 urged any student having pertinent information or charges concerning the HYRC Presidential campaign to the attention of the committee. This can be done either at the regular meetings from noon to 5 p.m. today and from 2 to 4 p.m. tomorrow in Wigglesworth D, or by contacting a member of the committee. The members are: Richard P. Houlihan, Jr. 3L, Daniel M. Hall 2L, and Gary L. Schwendiman 2L.

Rusher Arrives Today

The CRIMSON learned yesterday that William Rusher, founder and first president of the HYRC and present chief administrative counsel of Senator East-land's judiciary Committee, would arrive in Boston this afternoon from Washington.

In a telephone conversation yesterday, Rusher told the CRIMSON that he was not coming specially for the HYRC election. He said that he was going to talk to Norman William Smith '58, HYRC presidential hopeful, but that he had made no plans to see club president Donald Hodel '57 or any other HYRC member. Rusher plans to leave Sunday.

In other HYRC activity, Thomas Stalker '58 handed out a sheet reminding members that he "maintains the ability organization to settle any intra-club disputes."
