To the Editor of the Crimson:
Recently there occurred on the Harvard campus an incident so objectionable that we feel the student body should have an opportunity to express its revulsion. A poster appeared on the bulletin boards Tuesday, which made a vicious attack on outstanding Harvard professors and implied crude anti-semitism, with attempted similarity to the cheap vaudeville of DER STUERMER. Those who have seen the reproductions in a recent issue of LIFE magazine will recognize in this placard a poor exhibition of intolerance and bigotry which is characteristic of all fascist literature in this country. By making illegal use of the bulletin boards for an unsigned poster, the authors themselves acknowledge that Harvard rejects such ill-mannered action.
We urge the administration to take appropriate action against the responsible persons to insure that incidents like this will not recur. Richard Sullivan, Chairman, Lowell House Committee. Henry E.
