CONANT IS CALLED "NON-ORIGINAL" BY B.U.'S PRESIDENT

Conant Not Named, but Speaker Leaves No Doubt in Minds of Hearers That He Refers to Harvardian

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"There is a style in educational jargon to which certain non-original souls adhere as slavishly as some women follow the changing style of hats," Marsh declared at the 75th anniversary celebration of Massachusetts State College.

"The style is to effect an institutional superiority inveighing against the education of the masses. It is a passing vogue. It cannot live long because it is fundamentally wrong."

Though he did not name Conant, Marsh left no doubt in his hearers' minds that he was referring to the Harvard president, who urged elimination of perhaps one-half of those enrolled in Universities and the substitution of those more talented.
