Young Democratic Club to Sponsor Wallace's Harvard Visit Nov. 4

When Governor George C. Wallace of Alabama speaks alone at Harvard Nov. 4, it will be under the unequivocal and sole sponsorship of the Young Democratic Club, Burt L. Ross, club second vicepresident announced last night.

Although the most recent invitation that Wallace has accepted came from the Harvard-Radcliffe International Relations Council, this group has agreed to let the Young Democrats sponsor the governor's appearance, Ross said.

Danny J. Boggs '65, president of the HRIRC, said that his group is concerned primarily with international affairs and invited Wallace only because "he was being denied a forum at Harvard." But now that the Young Democrats have rescinded their demand that Wallace debate a member of the Faculty, it should be their club that sponsors his appearance, Boggs said.

Ross said the University has given the club permission, to use Sanders Theatre for Wallace's speech. He will speak for 40 minutes and will then be open to questions from the audience, according to Ross.

"I think the governor's speech will focus largely on the growth of centrilized government, but I don't think he'll try to duck questions on any subject from anyone, including Mark DeWolf Howe," Ross said.
