To the Editor of the CRIMSON:

The CRIMSON gave no publicity to the anti-Hearst meeting which was hold Monday in Phillips Brooks House, at which Kendric Marshall, instructor in Government and Secretary to the Freshmen Union, spoke.

Last week CRIMSON publicity of the fullest sort was given the anti-Hearst petition which drove Metrotone News out of the University Theatre; even editorial support was granted it. This repetition was sponsored by the Liberal Club. The Monday night meeting was under the auspices of the Harvard Student League for Industrial Democracy.

As long as the N.S.L.'s name didn't appear in an anti-Hearst move the CRIMSON was glad to show its "liberalism" and capitalize on the widespread anti-Hearst feeling. But when the N.S.L. undertook a public meeting exposing Hearst the CRIMSON revealed the sincerity of its opposition to Dirty Willy by refusing even to mention the meeting.
