Orange Peel Business Manager Norwood Gay will go before the

the topics of a new, provocative
poster distributed on campus by
Jay Maurice Thai.
Thai is the author of the pro protest
test protest posters that have been seen

during the present school year.
His philosophy behind them is to
stii ulate intellectual thought.
In the new poster he lashes out
at infringements upon the press
by legislative and executive
branches of the federal govern government

freedom of speech and the press
is in danger.
Other subjects for his posters

Hungarian revolution. Complacen Complacency,

Gay will also seek a 20 cent
raise in the magazines allotment
from each student activity fee.

raise the allotment, I will suggest
they do away with the Orange

fees was slashed to 20 cents in
1956. However, this worked out

It isnt right to put out the
magazine only once a year. Most
other college humor magazines
come out at least twice yearly,
The $2,000 is needed for this

be printed, Gay said. He said he
realized the Executive Council
might not grant that full amount.
