Van der Weydie, W. M.
Reports that Thomas Paine was not elected to the Hall of Fame of New York University. Gives information about the election of Mark Twain and the nominating process. Mentions Paine's rating as "more justly famous" and emphasizes that he may be elected in the future. A note on the paper, presumably written by James M. Boddy, says that Paine was not an infidel as Du Bois has taught and identifies the author's article as a minister.
