In essence the pln is this: to rid our Univer

entire plan purpose and strength.
The last section of the letter says that the
proposal will go into effect Jan. 1, 1953. And
how might this sort of proposal be pat into

signing the letter shall not pot up candidates

the basis of ticket-balloting.
The letter is being submitted to the Council
for approval. Regardless of the decision of the
Council, those organized houses that vote tonight
in favor of the proposal, shall, in a word, boycott

The letter gives two objections to ticket-balloting:
