Radcliffe records will be smashed this Christmas when more girls than over before stay in Cambridge over the holidays to polish theses and study for finals, college authorities said today.
"Between 20 and 30 girls will live at the college during all or part of Christmas vacation," Mrs. Josephine B. Wilson, head resident at Barnard Hall and assistant director of residence, said last night.
"We are planning to house them all in Gilman House, an off-campus dormitory," she added. "They will live there, but no meals will be served during vacation."
But no one will be slighted when it comes to Christmas dinner, she assured. Last year, not a single girl had to eat in a restaurant, for Radcliffe alumnae in the Boston area filled the breach.
