Harvard Victim of Another Hack, Observes MIT Appreciation Week

By Jesse Kornblum

The MIT tradition of hacking the Harvard-Yale game took on a new twist at last Friday's intercollegiate dance competition when the Harvard Crimson officially recognized three MIT students as distinguished guests as part of "Harvard's MIT Appreciation Week."

During halftime, as the Harvard Dance team took the floor, the stadium announcer read a statement prepared by several MIT students. "The Harvard Crimson would like to recognize our distinguished guests from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology," the statement read, "who are here tonight as part of our continuing support of Harvard's MIT Appreciation Week."

At this point three MIT students sitting in the front row of the bleachers stood and waved to the crowd. Members of the Dance Team began applauding and the rest of the crowd followed. Soon the entire arena was saluting the honored guests.
