Seniors Have Opportunity For Personal Contact With Prominent Government Men

Vacation Tour Backed by Institute of Public Opinion

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Personal contact with important public officials in Washington during the Spring vacation week is offered to three or four qualified Seniors from the University, according to an announcement by Arthur N. Holcombe '06, professor of Government. It is on a tour sponsored by the National Institute of Public Opinion.

Students who desire to go must write to Henry Reining, Jr., 400 Investment Building, Washington, since Holcombe has not been empowered to choose Harvard's quota. Approximately 75 will make the tour, including both men and women students from all over the country. The students must pay their own expenses.

Holcombe described it as "a real privilege" to get some insight into the government at work in this manner, and said that besides the usual trip to Congress the Institute would arrange meetings with cabinet officers and at least an inside look at the White House and other government offices.
