To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
There has been considerable discussion lately of the nation's growing college population, notably by Professor Bush, President Pusey, and the CRIMSON. By this time, the urgency of the problem and the costs of new dormitories are well known.
In my opinion, there has been very little discussion of the specific educational after-effects which might arise from an increase in Harvard's undergraduate body. I believe that an exchange of views focused on the following two questions would be enlightening:
1) How will the House system be affected by the increased enrollment, and will there be a change in the relation of the Houses to the College as a whole?
2) How will an increase in the undergraduate enrollment affect the size, composition, activity, and effectiveness of the faculty? John F. Merrifield '55
