Columbia Students Win Right To Choose Speakers on Campus

The Student Council at Columbia University will have the authority to determine whether any controversial figure will be permitted to speak at the school, according to a report of a faculty committee.
The committee was set up as the result of the controversy which was aroused when the authorities at Columbia and other colleges here had refused to permit Howard Fast to speak on their campuses last December.
Professor of Public Law Joseph Chamberlain was committee chairman and John Scott, representative of the Student Council, served on it.
