HARVARD IS 'BREEDER 1 OF GOVERNMENTAL OFFICIALS Monday, J«nu«ry 30, 1961 CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP)-No matter what you may have heard, Harvard University is still located in Cambridge, three miles from Boston, on a big bend' o£ the Charles River. Its graceful Georgian steeples and bell towers, glistening like a modern Camelot against the drab winter sky, offer proof that this ancient seat of learning hasn't moved to the banks of the Po- lomac. The jumble of bicycles in the yard, the litter of sports cars outside the Faculty Club, the bookstores crowded with intense young men in button-down collars, pencil-slim ties and chino Air Conditioning EXPERTS • Automotive • Residential • Commercial Any Mak« or Model 24 Mr. Service 7 Days Per Week 10 Years Experience JOHN'S AIR CONDITIONING Authorized Mark IV Dealer 202 W, Honun JU 3-2020 trousers, further testify that not all of John Harvard's sons have gone off to Washington (o help old grad John Fitzgerald Kennedy —A.B. 1940—man the ramparts of his new frontier. The college still survives. It always has. After all. Kennedy is not the first president to come from Harvard. He is the sixth, counting John Adams, A.B. 1775, John Quincy Adams, A.B. 1787, Rutherford B. Hayes, LL.B. 1845, Theodore Roosevelt, A.B. 1880, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, A.B. 1903. William and Mary, Harvard's closest competitor as a presidential incubator, has turned out three—Jefferson, Monroe and Tyler—and arch rival Yale only one —Talt. Four of Kennedy's Cabinet members are Harvard bred: his brother. Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, A.B. 1948, Secretary of the Treasury Douglas Dillon, A.B. Force Secretary Eugene Zuckerl, Undersecretary of Defense Paul Nitze, Undersecretary of Treasury Robert Roosa. Housing Administrator Robert Weaver, disarmament coordinator John McCloy, defense comptroller Charles Hitch, economic advisor James Tobin, security chief McGeorge Bundy, and White House aides James M. Landis, P. Kenneth O'Donnell and Timothy Reardon. In addition, U. N. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson put in three years at the Law School, Undersecretary of State Chester Bowles lectured here and Walter Heller of the Council on Economic Affairs served as a Law School consultant. At Harvard, the old school tie can be knotted into a lasting bond of affection. From sophomore year on, all the Kennedy brothers lived in Winthrop House, one of the nine residence houses strung out so picturesquely along the river. Benjamin Smith, the new 1931, Secretary'of Defense Robert'senator from Massachusetts, McNamara, M.B.A. 1939, and roomed with Jack Kennedy; so Postmaster General J. Edward Day, L.B. 1338.

Aside from complimenting him on his "good taste," Harvard President Nathan Pusey has scarcely lifted an official eyebrow at the Kennedy raids on his academic larder. Tradition is on the side of acquiescence. The nation's oldest and richest college, proud possessor of the biggest university library — six million volumes, fattest endowment—currently a half billion dollars, highest paid faculty—professors average 517,000 a year, and one of the brainiest student bodies —more than half graduate cum laude—anywhere in the world, has grown used to serving as stockpile for government brain power. Although Franklin Roosevelt, like Kennedy, dipped deep into the pile, the phenomenon is not limited to alumni presidents, nor even to Democrats. West Pointer Dwight D. Eisenhower chose the then" president of the university, James Bryant Conant. as his ambassador to Germany, and surrounded himself with such Har- ! vard products as Henry Cabot Lodge, Christian A. Herter, Charles Bohlen, Douglas Dillon, i Winthrop Aldrich, among many i others. No matter which party is in power, the Boston to Washington >arlor cari have always done a jrisk business with Harvard pro- essors trundling down to the cap- tal with crammed briefcases to confer on a variety of problems. Harvard's attitude toward iU academic commuter problem was ong ago summed up by a secretary in President Charles Eliot's office who archly informed caller that "tha president is in Washington, conferring with Mr. Roosevelt," The Roosevelt being conferred with happened to be Theodore Roosevelt, president of the United States. Being a Harvard man. he would have understood. Other elements in the country, however, have had difficulty understanding why so many Harvard men get into government. A Midwest weekly, chagrined at (he number of Kennedy appointees from Harvard, was moved to "wonder why always, or almost always, we must apply to Harvard when the really important posts need filling. Is Harvard the only school that turns out experts?" The question amused the editors of The Crimson, Harvard's outspoken undergraduate daily, ust as it might have amused John Kennedy and Franklin Roosevelt in their days on the :rimson board. Still, it seems valid enough. What is there about this school that makes it a stepping stone to greatness or, as William James called it, "a nursery for independent and lonely thinkers?" What, beyond the fact that it is old, rich and serves beer at its commencements, makes it different from any other college? In short, whaf s so'hot about Harvard? Around the Yard, as the campus is called because it once shielded the cows of Cambridge from ravage by local wolves, the o^iestion stirred considerable comment. "A large proportion of the nation's ability tends to come to Harvard," answered Law School Ike Plans To Return To Gettysburg Home ALBANY. Ga. (AP) — Former President Dwight D.

The former president and his wife, who did not accompany him here, are planning a trip to California next month. Dean Erwin Griswold, a Republican hit hard by the Kennedy faculty raids. "Twenty-five per cent of all the law schools teachers in the country today went to Harvard. It's perfectly natural that if you (tart picking able people, the chances are pretty high that they came here. If someone wanted to make a list of the Harvard men appointed by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, it would be just as impressive." Arthur Holcombe, retired government professor who taught Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. and all the Kennedy boys, says "Harvard's policy is to give the public service first call on its faculty. It's a good policy. The professors learn something, and it brings the school to the attention of bright young men." Holcombe is a pretty good example of the policy.

(AP) —More than $150,000 of the estate of actor Barry Fitzgerald will go to relatives and friends. The bequests include J15.000 to Sean O'Casey. the Irish playwright. Una Slott of Hollywood, a niqce of Fitzgerald, was left J35.000, Marie Mortished of Hollywood, i sister, will get $25,000.' The will, filed for probate Thursday, provides the remainder of the estate will be made into a trust fund. Two-thirds of the fund is to be used for the primary benefit of actor Arthur Shields, Fitzgerald's brother, and one-third for the benefit of John Joseph O'Leary, a friend in Dublin.

"The boy's whole background was Boston and Democratic," recalls Holcombe. "I figured it wouldn't hurt him to know how the other side thinks. He got interested and did a fine job." Similarly, a Harvard professor talked Theodore Roosevelt out of becoming a naturalist and steered him to politics. Another aroused the social conscience of Franklin D. Roosevelt and got in return a theme paper urging Southern colleges to admit Negroes. Harvard has a way of drawing people out. Was it something in his Harvard background that inspired 1 John Quincy Adams to back old foe Thomas Jefferson on an unpopular issue and thereby win a place in John Kennedy's "Profiles in Courage"? Almost from its founding in 1636, just six years after the start of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Harvard has been in the thick of things, politically and religiously, and subject to such taunts as "godless," "snobby," "radical," "high brow."
