I could find tb explanation in the files.
other questions, not mentioned in tbe files, but presumably pertinent to
a congress ol* this type would include the following*
a; How is HaSHTEiiJ going to maintain undisputed control overay proceedings of the congress? Ittulos of procea*dure? secret caucus of inner circle of his intimates? "hat else?)
how will the congreashe-fcl be guarded against disorders and undesirable intruders, such as communist agents, hecklers, other "lunatic fringes" always likely to gatheruch publicized convention? (Arrangements with the polioe* HwSHIf-ui'e own strong-ana squads? "embersof ZKAFRAID, militant students?)

Undersigned therefore recommends that we ought to limit our efforts in this matter to the rBtfJuCESS interest in the congress, without attempting to bring about whatever changes might appear desirable in the over-all plana and conduct of the congress.
