Text

Bethany Nebraska, April 23 1918
Acting Chancellor State University,
Lincoln, Neb.
Dear Sir:
In view of the fact that there seems to be a feeling that Dean Luckey is not quite up to the required standard in loyalty to this country, I herby wish to state that I am taking six hours work in his classes and that I have never detected anything that seemed to tend toward disloyalty in any sense. Indeed I have felt that his outspoken commendation of President Wilson and his management of the war, indicates that the Dean is above criticism and is a decided patriot.
Please note that this is written wholly upon my own initiation, because of a sense of justice and not from any suggestions from the individual most concerned.
Very truly
Edith Burgins
