Free Forum

Cover 1967?

Free Forum was a club "to provide the student with an outlet for his beliefs and abilities no matter what they are! Our policy is that of no discrimination of any kind, shape or form...At the present time the clubs main organ of expression is a free press magazine which will be published whenever the quality and quantity of material make it possible. This issue is open to any form of topical material, (political, poetry, art, essays, photography or drawings). The material may be from on or off campus sources and the paper can hopefully be published weekly if the volume of material and enthusiasm of students permit it. This publication is an experiment and whether it succeed or fails will judge the maturity and social consciousness of the study body of CSM."
