What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Is it possible that the majority of students are right in respect to the price in the cafeteria? Or is it the same old story of those in charge know all the answers and are absolutely sure that nothing can be done to lower the prices of food? Students, you have been told in this same issue that you are not accustomed to paying for your food; that you have not been out in the world long enough to realize that it costs money to live. Actually, I believe that I have been told that I am still a little \wet behind the ears.\ This rather irks me when I have found (by trying it) that, I could eat down town cheaper! In explanation, I say that you can get more for your money. Or, at least, a better variety; and do you know that they will actually bring a larger amount of food to you. No kid- ding, I just can't see where I am getting my money's worth in our cafeteria. I, personally, have been out in the cruel world just a few times. This only leads me to believe that many other students have had to buy their meals in other places besides the cafeteria and have an opinion that perhaps it is not be- ing run on a cost basis or if it is, there is waste somewhere along the line. Although I can not agree with the prices that are paid, I do agree that the cafeteria is con- stantly in a mess and that it is our fault. Why shouldn't we make a deal of keeping the place a lot cleaner for just a little lower prices. Paul Stark YOUNG FASHIONS for YOUNG BUDGETS 4. • • 29th & 1st Ave. North I LETTER TO THE EDITOR As long as everyone else is put- ting in his two cents about the cafeteria high prices, let me add mine. To those of you who are un- happy, let me bring these facts to your attention. Up to now, you have never had to put cash over the counter for every mouthful you ate. Paying has always been pappa's head- ache. Some of you come from farms where your folks could—with or without your help — raise, can and/or buy from a neighbor all the vegetables, fruits and meats needed to set your table. The cafe- teria buys every particle from a grocer who wants a profit plus the deliver boy who totes it up here. You never paid your mother $50 a week to cook for you, a helper $35 more, plus sundry man- ly species to wash dishes at 70 cents an hour. Your fond papa isn't paid as cafeteria manager to balance the bills daily and collect from star boarders who \forget\ what they owe. It's a cruel, cruel world to grow up to self-responsibility. —June Berg DANCING CLASS You have probably all heard something about the weekly dance sessions held in thegym. A pro- fessional dancing instructor, Miss Evelyn Fox, has been secured to teach beginning and advanced classes. So far, attendance has been very good but we want the rest of you to get out there— whether you're a beginner or an expert. Let's see everyone at these dances tripping the light fantastic! Physicians say one million wo- men are overweight. These, of course are round figures. REPLY In reply to this article I must first say that I am glad someone is taking a stand in this highly debatable subject of high prices in the cafeteria. However, it is hard to conceive the idea that a person in the world of today would so completely de- fend high prices. I certainly do not like to pay these prices and I am sure I can speak for the ma- jority of the students of Eastern who are forced to indulge in eat- ing at least one meal daily in the cafeteria. It is a very nice thought that you have presented that all of us have absolutely no experience out in this cruel, cruel world and so cannot understand or have an agrument against this situation. I am sure that some of the stud- ents do wish that they had al- ways had the most comfortable life with no worries and to have had everything given to them. Needless to say this is certainly not the case and never will be. I would hate to think that the American children would have to ever think of the food they are given by their parents as an \un- paid\ bill. In conclusion I would like to add that the students of Eastern have self-responsibility and it is this self-responsibility that makes them want cheaper prices in the cafeteria or sufficient reasons for not getting them. Dorothy Dusapin 2908 2nd Ave. North CLARK'S Food Markets —3 Convenient Stores— Baldwin CAFETERIA SITUATION I would like to take this oppor- tunity to express my appreciation for the students that have shown interests in the Student Union Cafeteria. There is always room for improvement but without your suggestions there is no way of telling what is wrong with our cafeteria. The present situation in the cafeteria is this: Mrs. Larson (head chef) has just resigned be- cause of the hard work involved in our inefficient cafeteria. Do we want to spend $3,000 to make improvements when our Student Union building could be ready for us about 1953 or 1954. Mr. Bill Howard, Student Union Manager, has resigned because of additional duties to his school work during his student teaching. Now, Miss Wall has resigned because of LACK OF COOPERATION with the students while they are in the Student Union room. There isn't any reason why I should worry if the Student Union Cafeteria closes other than being acting president of the Student Board. I have a car that will take me home to dinner each day. What will you do? As far as I am concerned either we have more cooperation from the students, keeping the place clean—bottles and cups in proper places or close the place entirely! Edwin Robinson, Acting President. P.S. If you want to do some- thing about this, use your power of petition and get yourself on the Board. ■ • ••• ■ ., • • 4.....1>•sr PAYLESS DRUG • • . headquarters for school supplies Remember—Payless Has Everything!
