"BROWN OF HARVARD" AT UNION INCITES NEAR RIOT
While a large crowd of undergraduates filled the Union last night, the much spoken of film version of "Brown of Harvard" was flashed on the screen.
The picture was not received with much approval; on the contrary some of the scenes were greeted by sentiments indicative of an embryo riot. The picture given of Harvard undergraduate life is a thoroughly untrue one, and gives a very false impression of University events.
"Brown of Harvard" has been shown in Boston once before. This was in April 1907, and was the occasion of the famous riot which occurred at the opening performance of the Majestic Theatre and which caused so much disturbance and comment both in the University and around Boston.
The film will be given during the coming week at Loew's State Theatre, and judging by the reception given the film last night, there is great possibility of an incident similar to that in 1907.
