Making Headlines



To the Editors of The Crimson:

Your choice of the headline "Freshmen Will Break CRR Boycott" in yesterday's Crimson was misleading. After the meeting of the panel of 15 freshmen representatives, I was not left with the impression that the boycott was over. Furthermore, an end to the boycott does not appear imminent, as was implied in your headline.

A more accurate headline would have read "Freshmen Now Deadlocked on CRR Boycott." Seven of the 15 committee members voted in favor of continuing the boycott. Five committee members voted for a motion to end the boycott. Three committee members voted against both proposals, expressing their willingness to put people on the committee provided that a reform proposal is passed. Presumably, this gives CHUL some time to draw up a proposal and submit it for passage through accepted channels.

It appears likely that the passage of such a proposal will end the boycott; without passage of such a proposal, it appears the votes to continue the boycott do indeed exist. It is now crucial that CHUL move quickly to draw up a proposal if they wish to gain the confidence of the freshman committee.

There is already confusion among students and faculty over the CRR. Your headline did not serve to clarify the situation. Doug Kohl '80
