     In his chapter on student protest, Jerome Skolnick,
     author of The Politics of Protest (Clarion, 1969)
     writes that SDS became "the most widely publicized
     and perhaps the most influential of student political
     groups [on the left] formed in the early 1960's."
     He also said that SDS vastly overshadowed in size
     and reputation the other left-wing groups, such
     as the DuBois Clubs, the Young Socialist Alliance,
     and Progressive Labor.
     Although it did infiltrate (and some would  say disrupt) 
     SDS, Progressive Labor was not a Communist Party 
     group. It was Marxist-Leninist-Maoist.
