After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
The Summer School administration, proprietors of entertainment facilities in Boston and Cambridge, and Harvard semanticists all joined yesterday in a common plea to Summer School students: keep the entries to Yard dormitories clear. In other words, don't sit on the steps.
Semanticists were worried about the social congregations on dormitory steps because, as one of them put it, "the function of entries is to allow people to go in and out--see Webster's International Dictionary, 1946 edition, page 855."
Theatre and restaurant owners expressed concern that Summer School students were "sitting home" and missing out on all that Boston has to offer.
The Summer School Administration merely observed that "use of entries for social purposes violates the parietal rules."
