A house-warming dinner at Adams House last night, attended by a group of 50, marked the official opening of a third House Plan unit. The party, including President Lowell, Professor J. P. Baxter, 3rd, Master of the House; Messrs. Shepley and Abbott of the arm of University architects; ten Associates of the House, and 18 tutors, with their wives, dined in the main hall at a large table formed by placing several ones together.
Following the dinner President Lowell was called upon for an impromptu talk. The guests then visited Apthorp House, and the new common rooms and library.
Interior decoration work in the House is nearing completion. Furniture recently moved into the upper common room includes a side-board formerly in the possession of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The portrait of John Quincy Adams in the Union will be moved to the dining hall, where it will hang in company with one by Savage of General Washington.
