Editor a Communist?

Editor a Communist?

Dear Sir.—On the front page of your issue dated May 22 you strike at the very foundations of our university. I refer, of course, to your article on our holy and sacred Extravaganza —Allah —Allah.

You are obviously a Communist and an anarchist and what is more you are trying to terrorize the cast. I say that the Party dictated this article to you in order to make up for the crushing defeat our great democratic institution gave them when last year they sent their envoys to destroy our earnest end humble efforts.

Do you realize that you would deny some people their only chance to attend university, which is to take units in Extravaganza (Stages I-XXI). I see that we will once more have to announce to our audiences that you have nothing to do with Extravaganza or with the university for that matter.

What is more we will continue, (in our democratic belief in the divine right of Extrav.) to place on the stage-our clever interpretation of Rodgers and Hammerstein for the enjoyment of the people, who would rather pay too much for a show than revert to the old type show which was only a revue anyway. These patrons really give their money to the Students' Association and would much rather see it in the form of elaborate stages and costumes than see the money spent where it was meant to go. They don't really enjoy student-type revues, anyway. I am, etc.,
