To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

For some years now, I have been smliing smugly every time some university president reacts to student unrest by calling in the police, and the police deal with the situation no-holds-barred. I have assured myself complacently that Harvard is too sensible, too enlightened to react like that. But yesterday I discovered that the spirit of Josiah Quincy is not dead by any means. Even a history-conscious institution like Harvard, with so much history to learn from, ends up behaving as vindictively as the most callow, raw land-grant college in the country.

Under the circumstances, I intend to oppose with considerable ferocity any proposal to merge Radcliffe with a university which treats its students so foolishly and barbarically. It is sad to find myself wishing I had graduated from Radcliffe a year earlier, and received a Radcliffe diploma. I had never thought I would be ashamed of a Harvard diploma.
