The 30-year-old Stephens, now studying for a doctorate at the University of California at Los Angeles, drew attention there for his founding of the Thomas Jefferson Club, which he said was done because "{.Je believe the U.S. stand in Vietnam is justified and we seek to rally student-faculty support for it."

Stephens said he had founded the Thomas Jefferson Club on the UCLA campus to begin inviting speakers to discuss totalitarianism and democracy. "He all share an aversion to totalitarianism t-7hich we believe represents a danger to our liberal, pluralistic society and to mankind.
