CONSULATE SAYS CROWN PRINCE TO GET DEGREE

BUT SWEDISH PRINCE NOT COMING UNTIL AFTER COMMENCEMENT

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

According to the officials of the Swedish consulate, Crown Prince Gustave Adolph will be awarded an honorary degree by Harvard when he and Princess Louise visit this country next spring.

By releasing this information at this time, the Swedes unwittingly committed a major diplomatic offence of their own. It has been traditional Harvard policy never to announce the winners of degrees before the Commencement festivity. This is the most carefully guarded information of all that emanates from the Harvard News Office, college publicity bureau, and caused a flurry in University circles yesterday.

The royal couple will arrive in the United States on June 27, according to the report. If the consular officials expect him to get his degree at Commencement, they will be surprised, more than somewhat, since Commencement is on June 23.

President Roosevelt will be the best of the Prince and Princess when they arrive in Washington.
