To the Editors of the Crimson:
I wish to call attention through your columns to the repeated discourtesies shown to the instructor in the twelve o'clock section of English C. Scraping of feet, rattling of papers, useless and insulting laughter are participated in at each lecture, much to the discredit of all the men in the course. Cat calls are bad enough, but when it comes to putting cats themselves in the instructor's chair, the affair becomes very childish indeed. The constant disrespect shown by the members of this section is a reflection upon the class of ninety-seven and upon the University as a whole. Strangers visiting this course would receive a very low impression of Harvard and Harvard men in general. It is the place of every self-respecting man in the course to lend a hand in suppressing these very puerile practices of annoying the instructor.
Signed, A MEMBER OF THE SECTION.
