More than 200 students turned out on this day in 1963 to hear a lecture by the chair of the local branch of the Canadian Communist Party.

The meeting, originally slated for Rm. 16 in Middlesex College, had to be moved to Rm. 310 to accommodate the unexpected number of students.

Students were arrayed in everything from beards, dark glasses, black turtle neck sweaters, black gloves and University of Moscow sweat shirts, to conservative suits and appropriate Kennedy accents, The Gazette reported.
