To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
May I correct a substantial misrepresentation of my position concerning the Atlantic Pact, as reported in the CRIMSON, last Saturday. On previous occasions, I have suffered similar misrepresentations by CRIMSON reporters in silence. This time the issue is of such magnitude that I am forced to enter a disclaimer.
I did not, as your reporter alleges, "put some small measure of approval on the signing of the Atlantic Pact." On the contrary, I approved of it, with certain misgivings to be sure, as the only viable means of insuring peace between the United States and Russia in our time. My support of the Pact is not joyous, but it is, in the present world situation, quite unequivocal. Houry D. Aiken Associate Professor of Philosophy
