Senator Paul H. Douglas (D-Illinois) arrives this morning to deliver a three-day set of lectures, meetings, and informal talks centering on the three Godkin lectures, the first of which. "The General Problem of Ethics in Government," will be given at 8 p.m. tonight in the New Lecture Hall. President Conant will preside and introduce the speaker.
Douglas will deliver the other two Godkin lectures: "The Ethical Problems of the Administrative Branch" and "The Ethical Problems of the Legislative Branch" tomorrow and Friday nights at the same time and place. All three are open and free.
Douglas will also give the first in a series of five talks on the problem of "Lawyers' Problems of Conscience" sponsored by the Harvard Student Bar Association. The Senator will deliver this talk, "Canons of Ethics for the Lawyer in Government and Politics" at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow in Langdell Hall Courtroom.
Meanwhile Walter C. Carrington '52, president of the Harvard Liberal Union, said last night that he personally favored Douglas as Democratic Presidential candidate. Despite the fact that Douglas has stated categorically that he will not run, Carrington plans to talk to him on this matter.
