The Yale Political union is one of America's fore- most political forums, providing its members with the opportunity to exchange ideas with each other and with nationally known figures on current issues. This Spring, we'will be holding a symposium in Washington, DC to allow about forty of our members to meet face-to-face with pro- minent persons in government, journalism, and other areas which deal with politics.' We will be in Washington from March 7-10, and would be very grateful if you could spare some time from your schedule to lend your viewpoints and experiences to the group. We would especially like to hear your views on the necessity of a strong CIA. We will be glad to meet with you in your office if you can accomodate the entire group; if not, we can make other arrangements. Even if you can spare only a few minutes, we would enjoy speaking with you.
