(The CRIMSON has been asked to print the following letter, which is addressed to all students at Harvard and Radcliffe. --Ed.)

We as teaching members of the Harvard community are united with one another and with students in feeling the urgency of the need for co-operative action to improve Harvard--its instruction, its student life, its governance, its relation with the wider community. We feel that terrible mistake have been made, and that all of us have a responsibility to deal with their consequences.

We pledge to work so that the committee to be established in accordance with the vote of last Friday will be democratically elected, and that it will include faculty and students as full voting members. We further pledge that it will begin its work at once, not only to study, but also to recommend action upon the substantive issues raised by various members of the University community. Among these issues are: the status of ROTC, the expansion of Harvard University, Afro-American Studies, the occupation of University Hall on April 9, the police action on April 10, and the suspension of scholarships.

We as teachers strongly believe that our students must be heard. We as teachers also have a demand: it is that we work together in a rational atmosphere and compassionate spirit.
