More than 600 of the estimated 20,000 Harvard men in the armed services in every state of the Union and abroad are being kept in touch with follow alumni through the Contact Committee of Phillips Brooks House, the University Social Service Center. This number has been mounting steadily.
As students leave the University for the armed forces, they are invited to send to the committee their camp address. Each registrant is sent the names of fellow Harvard men stationed in his camp and of Harvard alumni in nearby cities who are willing to act as hosts.
It has been recently reported that some of the men who have turned in their names to Brooks House have been entertained by Harvard alumni residing near the camps of the servicemen.
