FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS . . .
To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
Several weeks ago I read with great interest Mr. Brown's editorial page feature on the Lowell House bells. At that time I thought the bells were a good thing. Though hardly melodious, they capably fill the bell tower, which is one of the more pleasant sights Cambridge has to offer. Thus, they have a raison d'etre.
Yet last Sunday, 1 changed my mind about the bells. While many undergraduates lay in their beds and others, indecently awake before noon, anxiously studied for their exams, the bells rang. The sound was deafening. There is no excuse for such raucous noise. At least during reading and exam periods, the bells should be silent. Christopher A. Smith '55
