To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce wishes to commend the student body of Harvard University for its peaceful involvement during the rally on Wednesday, April 15, and for its efforts to maintain an effective demonstration of ideas and an open platform for discussion.

Speaking for the business community, the Cambridge Chamber also commends the large majority of the students for their non-involvement in the destructive actions following the rally. The actions of a few who encouraged or participated in the injury of others of the destruction of property, hopefully will not hinder permanently the opportunity for students and residents alike to openly gather to express their views.
