The first Freshman Register since 1941 will supplant the recently cancelled Red Book this fall, the Council announced yesterday through Robert S. Leventhal '48, who is slated to manage the financial affairs of the revived publication.
Discarded during the war years, the Register is merely a photographic record of the Freshman class taken shortly after arrival in College. This year's book will list, beside the photographs, only the names, schools, and home and College addresses.
The revival of the Register was undertaken chiefly to fill the gap left last week when the more elaborate Red Book was cancelled because of financial insecurity. The new venture will be without advertising and will appear during the first week in December.
Financial backing from the Council has been assured by summer representatives Michael Rothenberg '49 and Patrick D. Dailey '50.
Leventhal said that three men, to be taken from members of the Freshman class who showed interest in the now- defunct Red Book, would be chosen by the end of the week to direct the activities of the Register.
After a conference with Dean Bender and Robert B. Watson '37, associate dean of the College, this afternoon, Rothenberg, Dailey, and Leventhal stated that the 1951 Red Book was still definitely out of the picture, but that "alternative methods" of financing the 1947-48 Class Album, suspended last week, were being explored.
It was understood that among the methods under discussion was one which would bring the Album into an entirely new perspective with regards the University.
