A Reply to Mr. Gleason.



(The Crimson invites all men in the University to submit signed communications of timely interest. It assumes no responsibility, however, for sentiments expressed under this head and reserves the right to exclude any whose publication would be palpably inappropriate.)

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

In Mr. Gleason's communication of March 10 there occurred a "glaring, if not deliberate" ambiguity, regarding the compensation received by members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra who participate in the Sunday evening musical services at the Epworth Methodist Church. The total sum of sixty dollars which they receive has to be shard by sometimes as many as five and never less than two musicians, besides the musical director.

If the Boston musical public was not willing to consider voluntarily the inadequacy of a snow shoveller's wage to satisfy a cultured musician, despite the fact that they were gradually losing many of their most accomplished artists, and in consequence their claim to having the best orchestra in the country, the facts needed to be brought to their attention in a more definite manner.

May I ask Mr. Gleason in what manner the principles of the Constitution or indeed any legislative measures successfully passed render the right to strike illegitimate or even defiant? H. M. FLINN '21.
