Harvard Students Receive Literary Digest Poll Ballots

Peace Poll to Crystallize Anti-War Sentiment Among Colleges

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Contained in the ballot are five questions dealing with three fields of military participation, America and another great war, Government control of munitions and war resources, and United States entry into the League of Nations.

In commenting on the ballot Charles L.
