BIRTH CONTROL

The Mail

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

In his letter to the CRIMSON, Professor Karl Sax is quite justified in condemning restriction of information about birth control and of birth control propaganda. However, the statement in the CRIMSON'S article of December 2, that Widener is guilty of such restriction, was in error. I am currently engaged in research for an honors thesis on the subject of the Massachusetts birth control law. I have found that information about birth control, and birth control propaganda, are readily available in Widener, and are listed in the card catalogue. In all likelihood it is only instructional manuals and descriptions of method that are in the "Cage," and these are clearly illegal in Massachusetts. The faulty interpretation of the law, which Professor Sax so rightly protests, is the CRIMSON writer's, and not Widener's. Stephen D. Howard '59.
