A.Y.D. Gives
Dance; Plans
The American Youth for Democ­
racy, an organization with an inter­
racial basis, gave a dance at the
Women’s Club, 1220 S. W. Taylor
St., on Saturday evening. A large
number attended this inter-racial
dance and everybody seemed to be
having one swell time. Though the
membership rules place members in
the 18 to 30 years old bracket/there
were quite a few present well over
the limit. But one and all alike,
young and old, trapped the light fan­
tastic and other things to the music
of Bob Becker’s Orchestra.
The next dance of this organiza­
tion is scheduled for August 12. Be­
fore the next dance, the A.Y.D. has
scheduled a discussion to be held at
their next meeting on Wednesday,
July 19, in Room 210 of the Studio
Building, 10th and Taylor. The sub-
