Jordan Approves Somerset Dance
Radcliffe President Wilbur K. Jordan has granted permission for the Student Council to run an informal dance at Boston's Somerset Hotel March 25 for the benefit of the 70th Anniversary Fund drive, student government president Joan Projansky '49 announced last night.
Last month Jordan vetoed a junior-sophomore class request to hold their formal dance at the Somerset on grounds that Annex dances have always taken place in Agassiz House, and there was no reason for breaking with tradition.
Jordan based his reversal of position on the fact that the profits of the affair will go for the fund. The Student Council, in deciding on the Somerset, expressed hope that the lure of a non-Agassiz dance would make it a greater success. Only five Council members voted against the proposal.
Susanne Hamilton '49, Radcliffe social chairman, will manage the dance.
