To the Editors of The Crimson:

As a former Cornell student, I must protest the reference in Sanford R. Cardin's article of February 14 to the Cornell swimming team as "hapless agriculture majors." I am not attempting here to defend the talents or lack thereof of the Cornell swimming team, but rather to clarify the status of Cornellians. First of all, there are many different colleges at Cornell University only one of which is agricultural. Secondly, while one can major in various aspects of agriculture in the New York State College of Agriculture, one can also major in biology, microbiology, statistics, botany or any one of a number of different areas other than agriculture. Such references as the aforementioned, evidence a complete lack of class in an erstwhile respectable newspaper. Ann Rosovsky Beaton
