Authority on Harvard Will Lecture Tonight in the Union

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Anecdotes of past collegiate pranks will be mixed with historical facts in the talk to be delivered this evening in the Union by Samuel E. Morison '08, professor of History.

This talk marks the third year in which Morison has opened the Freshman entertainment program with his almost traditional "Story of Harvard Yard." It is considered most appropriate as the initial Union extra-curricular meeting, since it outlines the history of the area in which the Yardlings will spend their first collegiate year.

Lantern slides will be employed to show the development of the Yard from the cow pastures and farm yards which were located there during Harvard's early years. The meeting will be sponsored by the Harvard Memorial Society.
