Open Houses Catch On

By Andrew P. Buchsbaum and Ellen M. Parker

Free beer and friendly tutors have drawn increasing numbers of students to Masters' open houses this year, several House masters said yesterday.

"We find all segments of the student population come, from the musicians to the athletes," Evon Z. Vogt Jr., master of Kirkland House, said yesterday.

Patricia A. Herlihy, co-master of Mather House agreed, saying, "It's a reshuffling of groups." The turnout at the Mather open house has tripled to 150 in the last two years, Herlihy added.

"It's a good way to meet people because it has all the trappings of a cocktail party but is less phony," one Leverett House sophomore said yesterday.

Charles B. Baker '79 of Mather House put it another way. "The Master's is the only place where the preppies can meet us," Baker said.
