Communications

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The CRIMSON wishes to acknowledge the receipt of a number of communications on the current issue of the Lampoon, all expressing the same sentiments. Owing to the fact that space does not permit the publication of all these contributions, four of them, which represent the general trend of the others, have been selected and are printed below. Those not published are signed by Arthur W. Marget-1G., H. F. Gibbs, Jr., '20, A. Green '20, A. Palmer '20, O. C. Seager, Jr., '20, Josiah Segal '21, and J. G. Donovan '22.

Further communications on this subject would seem inappropriate, inasmuch as one side of the controversy has been expounded in the Lampoon itself and the other is given below.

The CRIMSON holds in general the views expressed by its contributors in these communications. It believes that to enter the lists further against the Lampoon would simply tend to place both sides on a similar footing. to place both sides on a similar footing. The "Hydrostatic paradox of controversy" expounded by Oliver Wendell Holmes seems peculiarly applicable to the present controversy. If you had a sent tube one arm of which was the size of a pipe-stem, and the other big enough to hold the ocean, water would stand at the same height in one as in the other. Controversy equalizes fools and wise men in the same way--and the looks know it."
