PRES. LOWELL'S VISIT ABROAD

Exchanges Between Universities of Sorbonne and Harvard Discussed.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

President Lowell visited in Paris, France, early in July to discuss with the authorities of the Sorbonne and the Ministry of Education, questions of cultural exchanges between America and France. The University Corporation appointed President Lowell, Robert Bacon, formerly ambassador to France, and Professor A. C. Coolidge of the department of History as a committee for the maintenance of relations with French Universities, and this committee empowered President Lowell to act in its behalf during his stay in France.

President and Mrs. Lowell were the guests of Myron T. Herrick, the United States ambassador. They also visited the home of Fernald Baldensterger, the newly appointed French exchange professor to Harvard. A series of dinners were given in President Lowell's honor by James H. Hyde, director of the University of Paris, the Harvard Club, and the Franco-American Committee, at which Premier Barthou and other members of the cabinet and distinguished scholars of France were present.
