Thirty pickets from the Divinity School marched outside the State Street Investment Corporation offices in Boston yesterday, while seven of their representatives met for early two hours with George F. Bennett '33, president of the Investment Corporation and Treasurer of Harvard College.
The picketers, both Faculty and students, were protesting the Corporation's role in helping determine Harvard's investment policy. They passed out leaflets condemning the University's expansion policies.
The picketers called the Harvard University Strike Group, released a statement after the meeting saying that they had "made no headway." "Bennett maintained the neutrality and innocence of Harvard investment procedures; the picket delegation maintained the immorality and bankruptcy of those procedures," the statement said.
"I think we made headway," Bennett said last night. "there was a better understanding of our respective views," he added. Bennett said that he would be glad to meet with the Strike Group again for further discussion.
Stephen Hornberger, president of the Divinity School student body and one of the seven who spoke with Bennett, said last night that although the Divinity School voted to go off strike on Tuesday, students and Faculty are still very involved with the issues of the strike. "There are very few, if any, classes being run on a normal basis in the Divinity School," he added.
Hornberger said that the decision on what action to take will be made at a meeting of the Harvard Divinity School Community, scheduled for 10 a.m. today in the Braun Room at Andover Hall. Proposals for reorganizing the Divinity School will also be discussed at the meeting.
