League members are especially invited to a series of lectures on civil rights and individual liberty, sponsored jointly by the Public Affairs Committee of the "MCA and the Honolulu Bar Association. The series will be presented on the second Wednesday of each month from October through February. Dinner ($1.25) will be served at 6:30 at the YWCA. You may plan to attend the program only at 7:15 p.m. Dinner reservations should be made with Mrs. Suyama at the YWCA not later than the day before the meeting. (Phone 6001)

The following topics will be discussed:

October 13 Civil Rights and Liberty in the U.S.

November 10 Communism and the Constitution

December 8 Lawmakers and Civil Rights

January 12 Supreme Court as a Protector of Civil Rights

February 9 Panel Discussion

The moderator and first speaker is J. Edward Collins, Honolulu attorney and a former member of the law faculty of Catholic University in Washington, D. C. participants in other programs will be C. Nils Tavares, former Attorney-General of the Territory; J. Garner Anthony, also former Attorney General, and Judge McLaughlin of the federal court.

League members are urged to try to attend at least part of this series since it ties in so well with our national agenda item on individual liberties. You will remember that on this item we are to try to work with other interested community groups. Here's our chance to start.
