To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

The North Harvard community appreciates the sympathy extended by David Friedman '65 in his letter to the CRIMSON (Dec. 9). We must however disappoint his expectations about our language. An inquiry among the residents indicates that no one has ever, unthinkingly or otherwise, used the phrase "Property rights or human rights."

Phrases that individuals have used in the past include: "One man-one vote," "Part of the way with LBJ," "All the way with LBJ," and "Let's go Mets."

We hope that the struggle of poor people to save their homes from the urban renewal bulldozer will not be confused with a view of property rights that justifies economic piracy and racial discrimination. Stevan B. Goldin '64-3
