Crimson 5--Harlow 2

THE MAIL

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

To the Editor of the CRIMSON:

I have always disliked the "smug" aura in which the editors of the CRIMSON cloak themselves and their policies. That the CRIMSON should set itself up as the final court of judgment over University Hall, the Faculty, and the undergraduates, causes me grave gastric disturbance.

Thus I was especially irritated to read your story the other morning telling how the modification of the language requirements will help Coach Harlow to produce a winning football team. The change in regulations only affects two members of the team. What is more, I have learned from reliable sources that five CRIMSON editors reap the benefits of this change for which they have campaigned so belligerently all year. Is your intellectual snobdom going to continue its restraining influence on accurate facts which we as your subscribers deserve to know?) (Name Withheld by Request)

Ed, note--Since few people write the CRIMSON at this time of year, I wanted to show you the type of letter that I think would liven up our column. If this letter had not been written us, modesty would have restrained me from pointing out the fact that in the first Harlow skirmish the score is: CRIMSON 5, Harlow 2.
