Use of Harvard Seal May Be Criminal Offense in Future

Only Official Stationary May Carry an Undeleted Inscription

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Promiscuous display of the Harvard seal may be a criminal offense in the near future. After investigation, the Corporation, according to reports yesterday, has concluded that part of the sigillum must be deleted if it is to be used by any persons other than officials of the University.

The part which must be removed if it is used on banners or stationery is the inscription which surrounds the coat of arms, "Sigillum Academia Harvardiana in Nov Ang." In the future, if merchants wish to make banners or stationary bearing the seal, they will be allowed to use only the coat of arms representing three open books and the word "Veritas."

Persons infringing upon the status of the seal will be as liable to prosecution as those who use the state or national insignia.
