Porter Plan Not To Replace Maids

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A student porter system for College dormitories is still under study by the University said Vice-President Reynolds yesterday, reaffirming his desire to try the system out this fall.

However, he emphasized that everything depended on what draft bill finally gets through Congress this spring and the number of students that are in the College next year.

Reynolds explained that the system would not be designed to replace the maids now working for the University. Each year a certain proportion of the maids fail to return and the porter arrangement would "take up the slack" without displacing those maids who did return.

A student porter cleaning system has been in operation on a trial basis at M.I.T. since last September, and has been favorably viewed by University officials.
