ABSTRACT
The article reports that the University of Wisconsin has reaffirmed its basic faith in the methods of free inquiry. In a report made public November 12, 1953, Wisconsin's Student Life and Interest Committee reaffirmed the right of any student group, whether on the Attorney General's "subversive list" or not, to exist on the campus. They further refused to act as censors when student organizations bring speakers from outside the University to address them. The report does more than simply restate an old policy; it gives vital and valid reasons for allowing the status quo to continue.
