“Hoover worked his way through Stanford by waiting on table at the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house.” So wrote Editor Chester W. Cleveland of the Magazine of Sigma Chi in an article published last fortnight (TIME, May 14). Editor Cleveland did not conceal the fact that he disapproved of Candidate Hoover because the latter was non-fraternity and anti-fraternity while in college.

Candidate Hoover last week denied that he ever waited on table in any sorority house. Editor Cleveland’s article also said: “There he met and courted Lou Henry, now Mrs. Hoover. It is alleged that her sorority sisters were considerably embarrassed in a social way.” Candidate Hoover last week confirmed the general impression that he met Mrs. Hoover in a geology laboratory.
