Inconsistency seems to be the breath of life for fair Harvard.

At the tercentenary celebration last year, President Conant spoke eloquently for the promulgation of scholarship and the free and unbiased search for truth. In the old yard, under the rain-drenched elms, where the statue of John Harvard contemplates the Cambridge scene, thousands of alumni rose and cheered as the three-hundred-year-old banner of Harvard, bearing the motto, "Veritas", was raised.

After the great show was over Harvard settled down to its scholarly routine. The Dr. Walsh and Healy affair was dismissed on the grounds that it was "ordinary routine procedure."

A few days ago Harvard added to its illustrious faculty Henrich Bruning, former Chancellor of Germany, whose liberal ideas have forced him to live elsewhere than in Berlin.

The latest press report tells us that Harvard will accept the Nazi invitation of Goettingen, which Yale and Columbia and the great universities of England have all refused.

We cannot way that either the president of Harvard or the faculty is deciding these policies. In the Walsh-Healy affair, the faculty of the economics department recommended that the men he retained. From the President's remarks at the tercentenary we can say only that his ideas of a university are of the noblest order.

Members of the Harvard Corporation remain. They are the last outpost of any decision affecting Harvard. it would seem that it is they who might put into practice what they cheered at Harvard's tercentenary. --The Minnesota Daily
