Selma Delegation Restricted to 30

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A scarcity of charter flights to Montgomery, Ala., has limited Harvard's civil rights delegation to 30 students and Faculty members, the Reverend Richard E. Mumma announced last night.

"Because we couldn't accommodate everyone, we've given preference to Faculty members," Mumma said. Very few of the United Ministry affiliates will accompany the group."

Faculty Members

Faculty members in the Boston delegation include John M. Bullitt '43, professor of English; Henry C. Matfield '33, professor of German; George H. Williams, Hollis Professor of Divinity; Samuel D. Bell, associate professor of microbiology; John P. Richardson, instructor in theology; and Garland E. Allen, teaching fellow in biology and newly-appointed Allston Burr Senior Tutor of Quincy House.

More than 900 people from the Boston area responded to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference's invitation to join the last peg of the march, Mumma added, but only 313 spaces aboard charter planes are available.
