The administration dithered, unsure how to react to the DuBois Club application, and the uncertainty dragged on for months. Various left-liberal campus groups coalesced around the issue, seeing a link between the DuBois question and the Clabaugh Act and an opportunity to test the law. FBI Director Hoover and Attorney General Katzenbach opined on the situation. Meetings and discussions proceeded among students, protesters, faculty, and administrators; they consulted lawyers and examined federal laws yet decided nothing.

Keywords:   Clabaugh Act, DuBois Club, Young Socialists, Americans for Democratic Action, J. Edgar Hoover, Nicholas Katzenbach
