Wellesley girls will have less time and money to spend on their Harvard dates next fall, for at that time the cost of their education will go up $250 a head. The addition will raise the school's all-inclusive fee to $1,850.
Besides having to face the greater fees, the Wellesley girl will have to care for her own room, do more "waiting on" and bell duty, and supply her own linen. Miss Clapp said that these economics are necessary in order to prevent still another rise.
President Margaret Clapp said that the increase is necessary "in order to continue our standards of academic excellence and of sound health and food service." In spite of the rise, the new fee will cover only about three-fourths of actual costs, the rest coming from endowments and gifts.
