that time, speaker procurement

The CPU became a discussion
group exclusively after the For

ture. It is currently .inactive.
Speakers contacted to address
the campus by the two agencies,
whose files are among the most
complete and valu&fcle of any
similar organization artvwhere in
the country, include such notable
Leon Trotsky, Sant Rayburn,
George C. Marshall, Charles A.
