Suggestion of Alumnus Will Be Given To Corporation For Consideration

Action on the proposal made yesterday that Herbert Hoover should be named president of Harvard will not be taken until after the Christmas vacation, University officials declared last evening. In a letter of reply to C. D. Pugsley '09, of Peekskill, New York, who made the suggestion, H. L. Shattuck '01, treasurer of the University, stated that the proposal would be submitted to the Corporation as soon as that body met for the purpose of selecting a president.

Although the Corporation will convene Thursday for a special meeting, the matter will definitely not be discussed at this time. Since President Lowell said in his recent statement that he would prefer the change in presidency to take place at the end of the current academic year, no immediate action is expected in choosing his successor.
