Although attendance will not be reported in courses taken primarily by Juniors and Seniors, absences will be recorded in Freshman and Sophomore classes immediately preceding and following the Christmas recess, the Dean's Office has announced.
Upperclassmen not on Dean's List, however, are not encouraged to leave Cambridge early, while Freshmen and Sophomores without such rating are required to attend their final classes. Men on probation must register at the Dean's Office on the day of their last class.
The Dean's statement is as follows:
"The Dean's Office will repeat at the time of the Christmas recess the experiment which has been tried in recent years regarding the reporting of attendance in advanced courses before and after the vacation.

Freshmen and Sophomores Not Affected
"Especial attention is called to the fact that the experiment above mentioned does not apply to Sophomores or to Freshmen, including both new and dropped Freshmen, because attendance is regularly reported in practically all of the courses taken by them. Freshmen and Sophomores not on the Dean's List who extend the Christmas recess will be subject to disciplinary action as in the past. Alumni the necessary 34 points.
