Freshmen Obtain Extended Inter-House Meal Program


The Class of 1953 will have 200 percent more of an opportunity than previous classes to make a careful selection of where it will live for the next three years, according to an announcement by Dean Leighton last night.

At the monthly meeting of House-masters this week it was decided that, since House dining halls are no longer overcrowded and in order to give more of this year's freshman class a greater period of trial, the number of meals the Yardlings may take in Houses and the length of time during which they may take them will be extended.

Limited to seven meals over a two-week stretch in 1949, the freshmen will be able to obtain passes all next month for a total of 14 inter-House priviliges. For most of the first-year men, these brief excursions into upper class gracious living furnish almost the only experience on which to base applications for admission to the Houses later in the year.

Passes Limited

Last year only seven inter-House privileges were extended over a period of two weeks. Only one pass could be obtained for each House. This year, according to Leighton, the passes will probably be limited to two per House "as far as capacity permits," to prevent over-crowding of any one dining hall on a single night.

The freshman invasion starts next Wednesday and will last until the April vacation. Although House applications will be required soon after then end of the period, no information on admission will be available until considerably later in the year.
