The first University Tea for the season of 1913-14 will be held in the Parlor of Phillips Brooks House from 4 to 6 o'clock on the afternoon of Friday, November 28. The object of these teas, which are held weekly during the winter months of December, January and February, is to bring the members of the University into closer and more cordial relations with the officers and their wives. A printed invitation will be sent this year to every member of the University and fifty-year men in particular are invited to attend.
The teas are under the direction of a standing committee composed of certain officers of the University and their wives, who will receive each Friday. It is the express purpose of the committee to make these weekly occasions as informal as possible, and it is hoped that this end may be furthered by having the men from the graduate and undergraduate departments of the University act as ushers and assist in other ways. If the students show clearly that they wish this institution it will be continued and it is hoped that the attendance will justify the efforts of those in charge. It is planned to have some distinguished visitor present at each gathering.
