MONDAY SEES CONANT'S FORMAL '41 GREETING

DECEMBER 4 ANNOUNCED AS DAY OF FIRST FRESHMAN DANCE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

President Conant will make his formal address to Freshmen in the dining room of the Union at 7:45 o'clock Monday.

Prior to his appearance he will be guest of honor at a dinner of the Union Committee.

Nineteen forty-one will be the second class thus to hear Harvard's president make his official how more than a month after the opening of courses.

To the Classes of 1937, 1938, and 1939 he delivered a formal speech as well as his personal welcome at the regular Registration Day reception in the Union.

Now it is thought that after an opportunity has passed sufficient for the Freshmen to become an integrated group his words and himself can have greater significance.

Kendric N. Marshall '21, graduate secretary of the Union, made the announcement last night.

At the same time he disclosed that the Union Committee has voted to stage the first informal 1941 dance on Saturday, December 4.

This affair takes the place of the tea dance formerly held after the Yale game but now felt to be uneconomical in view of competition with other Harvard dances on that date.
