To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
In a humorously written letter Mr. Leonard stated that it had been his endeavor to impress proctors at examinations to be unobtrusive.
In a "pep-talk" to proctors before last semester's finals, Mr. Leonard did tell us to keep ourselves in the background. However, what effect that might have had was more than counter-balanced by his general attitude which was more that of a tamer of leopards and wildcats than of a supervisor of examinations to be taken by Harvard students. The assumption seemed to be that students cheat, and proctors are there to catch the criminal delinquents who are serving at this institution. Mr. Leonard's tone and attitude was insulting to me as I listened and realized that after all I am also one of those not-to-be-trusted Harvard students he talked about, even if in Grad School.
Please don't print my name, because I hope to make more money by serving at Exams, for the money, not the fun; and Mr. Leonard might not be inclined to use me much if he saw my name. A Proctor (Name withheld by request.)
