To The Editor:<</b>

Regarding [the Associated Press] article on the decision by Yale Law School to now permit military recruiters access to its students (“Yale Opens Campus To Military,” Sept. 24, page 13) and Karen Lee Torre’s commentary (“Yale Elite Meet Military Defeat,” page 27), I would add this paraphrase of an observation by Gen. William Butler, often, but apparently not accurately, attributed to Thucydides: “The society that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools.”
