By Mark Edward Lender Our country just marked the 240th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence with the customary parades, fireworks, and family gatherings that have become American traditions.

ISSUE | PRINCETON Wilson's legacy Princeton University exercised good sense in retaining President Woodrow Wilson's name on its school of public and international affairs and an undergraduate residential college ("Princeton will retain Wilson's name," April 5).

A controversy was brewing Thursday at Princeton High School, after students played a "Jews vs. Nazis" drinking game and documented the experience on social media. The students recorded the game, which they called "Holocaust Pong" or "Alcoholocaust," on the messaging app Snapchat, where it was seen by other students. Jamaica Ponder, a 17-year-old sophomore who runs a personal blog, captured a screenshot of the students pouring beer into plastic cups on a ping-pong table.

Princeton University will keep Woodrow Wilson's name on its school of public and international affairs and its undergraduate residential college despite the former president's racist past, the university announced Monday. The university had been under pressure from student protesters to remove the name of its former president because of Wilson's racist views and policies, including keeping black students from enrolling at Princeton when he headed it. But a board of trustees committee at Princeton decided to maintain Wilson's name, while committing to work on diversity and inclusion issues, and more fully educate people about Wilson's legacy.
