GREENE DENIES UNIVERSITY DISCRIMINATION ON Y. C. L.

In a letter printed in the New York Times yesterday, Jerome D. Greene, Secretary to the Corporation, denied that the University had taken any discriminatory action against Communism when the University stopped the distribution of the Young Communist League pamphlets against the "imperialist war" on Monday.

Greene objected to the Times' story on Tuesday which stated that "Harvard descends on student Communism; burns 5,000 Soviet-Hitler pamphlets." The Secretary to the Corporation stated that the dispatch was a "gross misrepresentation of the facts."

In his letter Greene said that any such action "is utterly incompatible with the well-known traditions of academic freedom in Harvard University."
