To the Editors of the Crimson:

On the morning of June 2, 1972, the following letter was slipped under my door: Cambridge, June 2   (62nd anniversary)

Dear Professor Starr,

We spent the evening on Anderson Bridge, reverently observing the 62nd anniversary of Quentin Compson's final resignation to chaos. It was a truly religious experience. We missed you.   Signed,

PPinting in the cold air of the Iron New England dark, I don't hate it, I don't hate it...

I would like to thank my anonymous correspondents for sharing with me such a precious moment. I too have felt the chill of the cold air of the iron New England dark. What we must do, we from more gracious climes, is to try to preserve our passion amidst what often seems an all-compelling frigidity. Again, how flattering to be thought of during such an important moment.   Kevin Starr   Assistant Prof. of English   Aliston Burr Senior Tutor, Eliot House
