To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

We note with pleasure and heartily endorse the position of the CRIMSON on both the content and spelling of "skepticism" adopted in your lead editorial of December 12 last. It will be remembered that our Society fought this same issue-the productivity of skepticism-with Father Leonard Feeney late S.J. in the debating arena last fall.

The Collegiate Montaigne Society, devoted to the memory of that Greatest Skeptic of Them All, Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, warmly agrees that scratching one's head is good for more in the modern world than the dandruff fingernail test.

The man who asks questions may not get all the answers. But the man who refuses to ask questions only is deluding himself that he has all the answers. And the classic definition of a fool has always been, "a man who knows not that he knows not."

This viewpoint is epitomized in the motto of the Collegiate Montaigne Society: "Dubitare est Cogitare." Richard W. Wallach '49, 2L   Chairman, New England Division,   Collegiate Montaigne Society.
