The purpose and function of this organization are to help develop a social and political
consciousness in the St. Ambrose student body.
Its activities have been in numerous fields.
During the past year, members of the organization's Labor Study Group conducted a survey
of labor centiment among the student body,
and with their findings initiated a petition for
better labor legislation which they forwarded
to both State and National Legislatures.
The Inter-Recial and Economic Survey
Groups conducted inquiries into the living conditions of minority groups in the community.
These are but a few of the functions carried
on by this active and informative organization.
