Short Takes

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In 1962. Harvard fired two controversial young psychologists from their Faculty posts following a year of tumult about the pair's research on LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs.

Tomorrow both men will return to Harvard Timothy Leary whose "turn on tune in and drop out" became the rallying cry for a generation of drugs-users, and Richard Alpert who now goes by the name Ram Dass. The two will speak at Sanders Theater at 10:30 a.m. in an event being billed as a "psychadelic reunion".

The forum will be moderated by Professor of Psychology David C. McCelland, who chaired the now-defanct Social Relations Department at the time of the controversy.
