To approve Scott's letter to Edison gets offi- cial action tangled up with private correspondence. If Edison did- notiwantcScott's opinion, lie could-easily have avoided gettig it. -He solicited it; he secured it. .Now, that he has it, he does not. like it, anld, as we see it-, this is-all the private -business of Edison andScott.

You can depend -thatsuch information coming from your own alumni organization will be answered with accu- racy and reliability.- If you have some od~d jobs of service that you would like the General Alumni Headquarters to do, we want to do it for you, of course, but if it is all the same to you, and if it can wait until after June 14, Odd Jobs "have a heart," for - Coimmencement makes ever growing demands upon the small force at the General Alumni Head- quarters. We are already too busy for comfort, and the rush will continue until after the middle of June. If the particular thing you want us to do can wait until after Commencement we- bespeak your co-operation in holding such requests for service in abeyance -until after June 14. So much for helping- us with acts offnegation.
