On April 1 the Harvard House in East Cambridge, which was founded last year and called the Harvard Free Library, became in reality a settlement. The library of the organization still remains the chief feature, but all of the branches together have taken the nature of a regular college settlement. The funds needed for carrying on the work have come from undergraduates and alumni.
Tomorrow afternoon at 4.30 o'clock the activities of the year will close with a tea given at the Harvard House by several of the wives of the Faculty to the ladies of the district.
