To the Editor of the Crimson:
May I take this opportunity to voice my genuine admiration of the policy consistently taken by the Crimson on the war and on the views expressed around the Yard tending to direct student thought towards a policy of intervention. You are doing a magnificent job.
It is not more than five years ago that many members of the Government and History departments were having a gay time dissecting the period from 1914 to 1917 to show how this country was bamboozled into fighting to make the world safe for democracy. There is now, I believe, some dissatisfaction among those very same teachers that students are not sensitive to the great moral issues involved in the present conflict. Isn't it possible that undergraduates have a better memory than professors? that these same professors are suffering from having taught too well?
Perhaps you might suggest a reading list. . . .
Keep us the good work. Raymond Dennett '36.
