To the Editors of the Crimson:
DEAR SIRS: - In the editorial pages of one of our College publications I find a repetition of the statement that at the recent annual dinner of the Harvard Club of New York City President Eliot was hissed "for his enmity to football." The statement is false. Not only was President Eliot's name not hissed, but it was greeted each time with applause. The announcement of the Faculty's vote against football did evoke hissing when first made, but then only, and before the reasons which led to the vote had been stated to the alumni present.
F. C. DE SUMICHRAST.
