Despite the elaborate precautions which have been taken about every aspect of the Roosevelt visit tonight, Julian L. Coolidge '95, Master of Lowell House, is still wrestling with the problem of how to maintain cordial relations between his former pupil and discordant Lowell House bells.
Mr. Coolidge has no authority over the grinding clangor which issues from his tower one Sunday every month; the Corporation has wisely kept for itself the power to decree the playing of the bells. So far it has not invited A. Tilman Merritt, instructor in Music, to play extemporaneously. The chances are that the scheme will die a Harvard death, buffeted from official to official.
Friends of the President were considerably relieved to learn that the gold-colored bells would not din a wistful message to presidential ears. Mr. Coolidge, however, was reported disconsolate that he was unable to grant the President's wish.
