BROOKS HOUSE NAMES KELLY FOR NEXT YEAR

Appointed Chairman of the Freshman Committee-Pratt Selected as His Assistant

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Oliver P. Bolton '39, chairman of the Freshman Committee, announced the appointment of Bartow Kelly '40 as his successor to the chairmanship. Kelly will be in charge of this committee and Peter M. Pratt '40 will be his assistant. These two will have charge of the rewriting of the Brooks House handbook for incoming Freshmen.

This Freshman committee through the year runs an old clothes drive and holds a Christmas party before vacation. After mid-years they concentrate on the Handbook, and work on a final clothes drive at the end of the year, gathering old discarded clothes and books which can be used the next year. This group also does some social service work and tries to interest other members of their class in the settlement houses. It is interesting to note that through the time given by undergraduates to these houses over three thousand people in Greater Boston were influenced last year.

Kelly will continue as head of the Freshman Committee next year to help and advise them in their work until their own chairman is appointed.

Every week the committee hold their own meetings and the members, picked from the entering class, are men interested in this type of work.
