The time of the services in the Eliot House chapel has been changed from the usual hour of 11 p.m. to 10 p.m. For the rest of the week two services will be held, one at each time, but after that the earlier one will be the only service.
The reason for the change is that the earlier hour is more convenient, and more people attend. The chapel, instituted last spring by a group of undergraduates, was reopened at the beginning of the term. It is a made-over trunk room in the basement of L-entry in Eliot House, and is equipped with candles and benches.
From ten to twenty students usually attend every evening six days a week. The service is conducted by any student who wishes to, and lasts from 10 to 15 minutes. Services are entirely non-denominational, and usually consist of a Bible reading and prayers.
Services this week will be conducted by James M. Slocum '52, Irvan T. O'Connell '52, LeRoy Rouner '53, Anthony W. Morss '53, and Francis C. Huntington '53. Anybody may attend from any of the Houses or the Yard.
The chapel is in a cement-walled basement room, with very simple whitewash covering, the cement. A large black cross is on the wall opposite the seats. The simplicity is to insure non-denominational worship.
