To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

As a former resident of Tennessee, a stanch Harvard man, and a devoted follower of the CRIMSON, I feel obliged to point out that Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was never inhabited by "mountain music and residents," as your article on Oak Ridge, Massachusetts, of March 20 declares. Until the Manhattan Project suddenly appeared in the middle of World War II, the area now known as Oak Ridge was a pleasant and sparsely inhabited valley. On a nearby ridge there grew a mighty oak. Thus, when the Army had time to pause amid its mighty atomic labors, it decided to name the Project construction town "Oak Ridge." This is the one instance in the last 150 years in which the Army did something the simple way. Dombe Bastide '49, St. Louis
