Mr. C. W. Birtwell '81, secretary of the Children's Aid Society of Boston, has been engaged to come to Cambridge two afternoons a week to give students who wish to do volunteer philanthropic work expert information and advice as to the charitable institutions of Boston and vicinity, and the best places for students to work. Beginning tomorrow, Mr. Birtwell will be in the Randall Room, first floor of Phillips Brooks House, on Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 1.30 to 3 o'clock, at the service of any men who may wish to consult him.
A number of applications for volunteer workers have already been received by the Social Service Committee from settlements and other institutions in Boston. The opportunities include the management of boys clubs, children's home libraries, and friendly visiting among the poor. It is requested that men who at the time of registration indicated their willingness to do philanthropic work consult Mr. Birtwell this week if possible, so that the needs of the settlements may be filled without delay.
