The annual fall flurry of social activities around Phillips Brooks House for Freshmen and new veterans will open Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock with an open house for all in the PBH lounge, continue with an activities meeting Tuesday evening, and hits its peak with three Harvard-Radcliffe teas now scheduled for Monday, September 30, Wednesday, October 2, and Friday, October 4.
Designed as a get-acquainted party, Sunday's open house will feature orientation movies of the University, including shots of many of its activities. Refreshments will be served.
"One lump, or two?"
The ever-popular Radcliffe teas, sponsored by the PBH Freshman Committee, are unique, as teas go, in that genuine Orange Pekoe, in cups with handles is served together with cream, sugar, and even a slice of lemon. Here, under afternoon lights, newcomers, shy or otherwise, will have an opportunity to meet incoming Radcliffe Freshmen and transfer students. The generally well-attended teas will be the first since February.
At Tuesday's activities meeting, the Freshman class will hear representatives of most of the many undergraduate organizations, from mountain climbing to stamp collecting, outline the aims and purposes of their organizations and explain how new comers may join. The speakers will be introduced by Ray A. Goldberg '48, who emphasized the importance of this meeting to new students wishing to leaven their first year's work with outside activities. PBH punch will also be served at this meeting.
