SOC. SCI. 15 SPEAKS

The Mail

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

To the Editors of the Crimson:

We, the undersigned students of Soc. Sci. 15, object to the way certain students have taken issue with Professor Herrnstein's views--regardless of our opinions about his Atlantic article or about his action against said students. In publishing the article, Professor Herrnstein has exposed himself in his professional capacity to public criticism. But when this criticism exceeds the bounds of rational debate and takes the form of harassment and emotional attacks on his person, then we believe that the dissidents have misused their right to speak out. We oppose this form of dissent-and suggest that those students who have taken this approach consider alternative means for furthering their cause. This statement does not endorse the contents of the article of Professor Herrnstein's CRR complaint. Deborah Heartland   Sam Anderson   and 95 students in Soc. Sci. 15
