The "Harvard's" Gun, Colors and Cup.
The Committee on Naval Affairs in the United States Senate has officially approved of the bill authorizing the Secretary of the Navy to give to Harvard University the Nordenfeldt gun, the set of colors and the silver loving cup presented to the cruiser "Harvard" at the beginning of the war with Spain by graduates and undergraduates of the University. The bill has also met the approval of Secretary Long and will probably be acted upon within a few days.
It has not been decided what will be done with the gifts if returned to the University. The original plan was to leave the loving cup with the ship as a permanent memorial of the "United States Auxiliary Cruiser Harvard," and to have the gun and colors placed in the Trophy Room.
