To the Editor of the Crimson:
While reading the review of the current "Advocate" in this morning's Crimson I was impressed by: (1) the name of Mr. Laughlin (recurring no less than eight times in the comparatively brief review); (2) the clever word-melanges (so characteristic of Mr. Laughlin's "Looking Across at the Silveratta,"); the note of self-satisfaction, brought jarringly to the fore in the paragraph captioned "Laughlin-Wolfe-Saroyan" (in order of importance)?
Could it be that the anonymous reviewer, who so plainly admires Mr. Laughlin, is none other than Mr. Laughlin? And that the clever and capable Mr. Laughlin has found in Crimson columns an overt means of patting his own ego? For Mr. Laughlin's benefit I suggest that the Crimson run a special series on Mr. Laughlin, entitled "Looking Across at Laughlin" and written, of course, by Mr. Laughlin.
