I am also enclosing a copy of a note just sent to a boy who left a feeveeks ago to help his family wind, up its affairs, which is self. explanatory. I em afraid that the popular outcry in the neighborhood of a good many eastern colleges which ...,, rose when the news got abroad that Japanese students might bs received* is hav. tag its. effect* I gathered in a note from Conard that a committee of eastern college presidents is working. on the problem of got. tine an agreement to accept them, bit I haven't heard anything more from it. • I had a note this morning from one of the boys now at the University of Utah, saying that, h0 is getting along all rievt,_ fiat Watitiftetielisfér elsailiere because that institution doesn't have the advanced eoursee he needs. 4e: said: that there are only half a dozen Japanese students there now * Qt Course* more may be in the process of being admitted.
