The Freshman Jubilee deficit crept past the $1400 mark last night as the audit books entered its final stages. The final responsibility for taking in this will now apparently have to lie with the Freshman Dean's office.
The Freshman Council, which last year was able to help the Jubilee Committee past a $150 deficit, finds $30 in its treasury--a sum which won't go too towards wiping out this year's loss.
At the beginning of the Fall term, the Freshman Dean lent the Jubilee Committee a fairly sizable amount of money to entice various entertainment groups. , while most of the other creditors have been paid, the Committee has no money left to repay the Dean's loans.
Second Cheapest In History
This years' budget exceeded any previous one by $500. Yet the ticket price $14 is the second cheapest in Jubilee history. (Past Jubilees have run as high as for the ticket.)
I. Evslin '65, publicity director for the Committee, insists, however, that there was still no reason to foresee any as he admitted that "we were surprised by the poor attendance." Evslin aimed that the Committee had based its figures on the minimum attendance Jubilees, and had actually hoped a few extra dollars from the concert."
The Committee is scheduled to meet with Dean von Stade later this week. "Abysmal...Radcliffe Freshmen"
Assessment of the blame for the poor is an interesting if difficult task. An informal poll of freshmen turned up ranging from "mismanagement" fault of a general attitude of the to "not so much a question of quality of the Harvard freshman but rather a testimonial to the quality of this year's Radcliffe freshmen."
Among all these dark, foreboding facts, over, there was one optimistic ray of from Jubilee Chairman James H. '65: "If you completely throw out the financial thing, it was one of the Jubilees ever."
