Dear Mr. Olmsted:
Your article in The Washington Herald of May 9th is inaccurate in that it places the Princeton freshmen enrollment at 2200. That is the total enrollment. The freshmen are limited to about 600 less than at Yale and Harvard: and Princeton is still the hardest institution to get in to and stay in (and leave!) in America.
