Use of the Union by Non-Members

[We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.]

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

There is a far too prevalent idea among the undergraduates that the Union can be used by non-members as well as members. This shows either deplorable thoughtlessness or a sad lack of principle. In a smaller club, where all the members know each other would a non-member attempt to usurp the privileges of the club? Is the use of the Union by non-members defensible simply because you may not be caught? It is a contemptible disregard of very necessary rules, and should be discountenanced by everyone who has the welfare of the University at heart simply because it is something for which we do not stand--dishonesty.

If you who use the Union and do not belong, whether you do so through thoughtlessness or through lack of principle, will think twice before doing so, there would not be so much woeful disregard of other people's privileges. L. K. LUNT '09.
