The True Sense of the Word
To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
Those of us who have been planning the convention to be held here next Saturday and Sunday and who have been looking forward to the establishment of an intercollegiate liberal organization, appreciate the editorial which appeared in the CRIMSON on Saturday. The warning which it sounded is not inapt; the advice which it offered is welcome. It would be easy for such an organization to slip into some of the evil ways of liberalism, to become "bigoted and impassioned", to "exhibit its own particular little idiosyncrasies". But it is our hope that the organization which is seen to be created will remain liberal in the true sense of the word. We could adopt no better platform than that suggested by the CRIMSON--to be "free from bias and prejudice: broad and open-minded; free, above all, from extremes of every kind."
It is not at all certain that the new organization, when it is formed, will choose the name "Liberal". Mr. Walter G. Fuller of "The Freeman" has offered a free subscription to the first college student who suggests the name adopted by the convention. The organizing committee would be grateful for any suggestions from the CRIMSON and its readers. Names should be sent to the Cranford Club, Brattle square. ROBERT WORMSER '22. March 26, 1921.
