‘The Architect of the Whole Plan’: Harvard Law Graduate Ken Chesebro’s Path to Jan. 6
Led by the vigor of the well worn pens of Harvard CRIMSON editors, undergraduates are launching a bitter tirade against the building of a new chapel to replace the vine-covered and consecrated Appleton Chapel which has stood in the Yard for long decades. More than ten days ago University officials announced the sage idea of erecting a new church as a memorial to Harvard's war heroes.
And since then CRIMSON editors have been adamant in their writings. Petitions have been circulated, hand bills have been distributed, bull sessions have been had. Harvard must not have a new chapel. In the first place, our journalistic friends tell us, Appleton, built years ago for a far smaller school, is too large itself to take care of the religiously inclined Harvard boys. And the CRIMSON believes that the University can find something far more up and coming if she is desirous of honoring her heroes. The latest reports show that officials have not broken down under the strain of the opposition, and plans for the edifice are being rushed along.
All this is strange music in our ears. Harvard, the home of so many great and godly gentlemen--the Mathers, Longfellow, Emerson, and many more,--refuses the chance to have a fine new chapel. Why? Because there is not enough religious interest in Harvard to warrant the erection of anything larger. Cornell would not want a new chapel--Sage is beautiful and inspiring. But even in this school where the word religion borders very closely to the realm of obsolescence attendance at churches on the hill and down town is not discouraging. --Cornell Sun.
