Europe: Study in Relationships


To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Your editorial stand on the Junior Year Abroad presents a most forceful argument for the extension of the new plan to include other fields of concentration, and points the way to an intelligent broadening of the current system. It seems highly desirable and logical that concentrators in fields other than Romance Languages to be given full opportunities to pursue European interests, and that appropriate or suitable courses can be found in European universities.

Perhaps the most genuinely important aspect of the entire plan lies in the field of human relationships, or the simple sending of Harvard students to meet with the peoples of the world. With this in mind, Mr. Rogers' excellent plan takes on a new scope and significance, and should be given serious consideration in its request for extension. Henry S. Williams '49
