By that time, anyway, this institution

to type it up. I did so and gave
about two dozen copies to those
people whom I remembered as

them on campus. They, in turn,
gave copies to their friends,
and so on.
I do not know now how many

As for the group, it has

only this example to offer. I

Halts Delivery
Deliveries of food to the girls
dorms have been discontinued by
Food Service. Bert W. Graham,
Food Service director, cited the
sharp decline of interest in the
program brought about by more
favorable weather conditions as
the reason for discontinuance.
In fair weather the girls get
out of those dorms to eat; they
walk to off campus eating places.
We notice the drop here in the
cafeteria," said Graham.
The program, tried for four
weeks, delivered food ordered by
phone to the various area desks.
Four deliveries were mad each
evening at 5. 6,7, and 9.
Graham said he believes the
service will be used again next
fall. Starting at the beginning
of the semester would have given
the service a better trial, next
year we plan to do this, Graham
During the first week of the

to make the deliveries practical.
After this, when the weather im improved,
