SEYMOUR, NEW PRESIDENT OF YALE, IS LAUDED BY CONANT

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Election, on Saturday, of Dr. Charles Seymour, former provost of Yale and professor of History, as President of Yale University drew praise from all sources. Officially President Conant spoke for Harvard, but unofficially, President Seymour was hailed as "a wise choice", "an able administrator", and a "distinguished scholar" here.

President Conant's statement read "Yale is to be congratulated on the election to the presidency of a man whose experience in educational administration and whose distinction as a historian and teacher enable him to bring to the task unusual capacities. Professor Seymour's background of experience in the world of affairs equips him admirably to continue Yale's great tradition of leadership."
