COLLECTION GREAT SUCCESS

Record Amount of Clothing and Books Gathered by Brooks House.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The annual mid-year collection of clothing, text-books, and magazines, which was begun early this week under the auspices of Phillips Brooks House, came to a close last night after one of the most successful collections in several years.

The unusual success of the collection is due to the new system instituted this year. Plans were laid before Christmas so that articles might be gathered as easily as possible. One hundred and twenty-five collectors were chosen to do the bulk of the work. These men were put in charge of R. McKinney '15, as head collector, who was aided by five assistant head collectors: W. J. Bingham '16, K. Apolonio '15, G. M. McVicar '15, P. L. Rabenold '15, and T. M. Gallie '15. To each of these collectors five or six dormitories were assigned. The head collectors secured one collector for each entry of every dormitory.

Along with this system of organization was instituted a plan of reports, whereby each collector reported how many rooms were assigned him, the number of men canvassed, and the total amount of clothing collected by him.

The clothing will be distributed among local charitable organizations, but most of the text-books will be kept in the Phillips Brooks House loan library, to be used by students on payment of five cents per volume. The magazines will be sent to the seamen's mission and later distributed aboard ships.
