The five committees appointed annually for the management of activities in the Freshman class, have just been announced for the class of 1924 by the officers elected last week. They are grouped as the Finance Committee, the Smoker Committee, the Jubilee Committee, the Entertainment Committee, and the Red Book Committee.
The Finance Committee, headed for the present by Corliss Lamont of Englewood, N. J., as chairman ex-officio, will be the first to start work, meeting, tonight at 8 o'clock in Standish Hall Common Room. At that time Lamont will explain the duties of the committee and will explain the details of the competitions for permanent chairman which will start immediately thereafter. The competition will be a week in length, consisting of collecting subscriptions to the treasury of the class, and is intended to net enough money to last for all the class activities during the four years it is in College. That men collecting the largest amount of money will become permanent chairman of the Committee and automatically a member of the Freshman Executive Committee. The four men who collect the next largest sums will receive sub-chairmanships on the Finance Committee.
Lee Leads Smoker Committee
It was decided by the Executive Committee that, inasmuch as Freshman Smokers have in the past few years been substituted for Dinners, the name of the Dinner Committee should be changed to that of Smoker Committee, headed by James Jackson Lee of Westwood. It will take charge of the smokers of the class of 1924 held this year.
The work of the Entertainment Committee, of which Richard Stewart Bowers of Brookline has been appointed chairman, will be enlarged somewhat this year. It plans to run and will be incharge of several Freshman "get, together" meetings, at which there will be music and refreshments. In this manner it hopes to foster class unity and promote acquaintance between men from different schools. Definite plans will be announced later.
It has been decided to appoint this year an Assistant Chairman of the Jubilee Committee and only two Sub-Chairmen instead of three as formerly. The Assistant Chairman will automatically become a member of the Freshman Ex- ecutive Committee. The Jubilee Committee will be headed by Robert Paul Bullard of Melrose Highlands.
Competitions for the editorial, business, photographic, and arts and cuts departments of the Red Book will start shortly, and will be conducted by the Chairman and Sub-Chairman already appointed. Guido Rinaldo Perera of Boston will act as Editor-in-Chief.
