Elephants Petition Shattuck For Pettee Reappointment

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Following an important address by Housemaster Roger B. Merriman '96 at the Eliot House dinner on March 20, the Elephants yesterday completed a petition for the reappointment of George S. Pettee '26, as instructor in Government.

Addressed to Henry Lee Shattuck '01, Senior Fellow and presiding officer of the Corporation, the petition refers to the Eliot House tutor's "capacities as an original and provocative thinker in the field of Government" and to his "helpfulness as a tutor."

Merriman Speaks

Originators of the statement said that Professor Merriman had voiced the sentiments of most House members at the dinner, when he made reference "with regret" to the terminating appointments of Pettee and John M. Potter '26, assistant professor of History and Literature and Eliot House senior tutor. A petition in behalf of Potter has already been circulated.

Additional petitions for a reconsideration of the Pettee appointment are expected to be circulated in Leverett and Dunster Houses today, where Government concentrators are numerous.
