The following is an extract from an editorial which appears in the Cambridge Tribune, published today:-
"All of Cambridge is not given up to study, but there is no part of our town that does not feel the influence of the body of scholars that have for so many years given Cambridge its fair fame in the land and the world. It is a fallacy to think that there is but one sort of learning to be honored. The learning of the book and the college, the learning of the forum and the exchange, are all to be prized, and we who live in a university town have a share in each. The atmosphere that surrounds the university is something of which we are all proud; it raises the grade of every school in the town; it increases the intelligence of every man, woman and child; and it adds to the money value of our real estate, to descend from the higher standard of worth to the lower."
