ItttwBi fAffc.)i'Courier Mewe •• fttnrttf, April l> MM** FOOD ON CAMPUS: Not Exactly Home Cooking By MEREDITH MOSS Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK - (NBA) - College students are acknowledged complainers, and food usually ranks No. 1 on their list of pet grievances. According to a recent survey by Moderator magazine, today's objectors are men of action who seek concrete changes in t h e dining halls. Wrote one male student: "Take away my riches, dignity, power, ideals, and even inhibitions; but not any food. I would rather die than not eat." He is alone. Students across the nation continue to stand together on one issue,'and though civil rights and Viet Nam may place barriers between the students of America, gtotnach pains will continue to remove them. Most significant are students' demands for sanitation in food preparation and service. Frequent cases of food poisoning assure him that cockroaches and flies in the kitchen can lead to disease. He's no longer willing to acv cept the "virus infection" label which some university officials might call staphyloccocus infection to cover up the fact that mayonnaise was improperly refrigerated. In dining halls this year, students have found: A dirty, band-aid floating in a bowl of vegetable soup, baked roaches in a cherry pie, a nickel worked into a hamburger, ashes in coffee cups and a tuft of hair in a veal cutht. "Just the other day," commented a New York student, "I found the larger half of a caterpillar nestled in my garden fresh green salad. The incident was closed .with our chef's usual coment, 'Apologies, son, take two desserts.' " The fight for cleanliness has been waged. One pharmacy student ran a bacterial count on the silverware from his cafteria and was floored by tlie results. Health inspectors at a well- known college found a cat sleep- Ing on the meat chopping board and reported the water TIE GAME—It takes a pretty ingenious seamstress to find a use for those beautiful broadtail ties that were replaced by the skinny new ones. Emma Watt*' grandmother in Casper Wye-., has accomplished it. She made this colorful skirt for her 10- par-old granddaughter. « 'grossly polluted." At another school the food Is allegedly not only unfit for human consumption but several of the laboratory rats contracted dysentery and died as a result of it. One college sophomore reports that ptomaine poisoning has replaced mononucleosis as a status symbol on his campus. * .» * Other complaints cover less lethal matters. Most students object strongly to a compulsory method of payment and would prefer to purchase their food by the meal. Many iesire additional snack bars, coffee shops and.vending machines. "How often do you eat away from the regular dining facilities?" the respondents were asked. "Ever day between meals," was the reply; "I feel like chewing on the leg of my chair sometimes." You can't refer to the "experience" as dining, according to many. "Throwing the slops" or "feeding" is a more accurate description, reported one male student at the University oi Illinois. A common complaint is the attitude on the. part of those in charge of eating facilities. "Our manager's name is Mr. Grimm," states a Brandeis grad, "and it':: a perfect description of the whole mess hall situation." "Once a week we're served canned turkey," a senior relates. "It comes on a roll and is terribly stringy and unappetizing. This year it looked worse than ever, and I asked our food supervisor how they expected us to eat canned turkey which tasted so horrid. 'It is not canned turkey,' the woman replied, 'it is rolled turkey. Would you Uke to see the can it came in?" PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Navy came to the aid of 70 young Canadian hockey players who will play in the International Friendship Hockey Festival this weekend in nearby Cranston. Tournament sponsors were 70 beds short, so the boys were lege cafeteria range from the Wellesley heel-hose requirement to the Reed dictate requiring shoes (a result of Oregon state law). Many dispute the mandates. At St. John's College in Santa Fe the boys combat the tie requirement by donning shab by cloths as belts or anklets. Cafeteria style is preferred, according to the survey, since it allows each individual to decide for himself the amount of time he will spend at the table, and tends to offer more selection. The pranks still abound, particularly in family - style situations where students act as waiters. The traditional table pounding and milk glass clinking is still performed when waiters drop trays, and students continue to sling paper plates, discuslike, across the d i n i n g room. Serious student rioting has not been part of traditional prank playing. Todays riots often result in food dumping, .destruction of glasses and china, picketing and boycotting of cam pus dining halls. Often a follow- up committee will prepare a list of compalints to the administration. Complaints are usually well - justified and intelligently presented. As a result of student protest, professional advice is being sought on many campuses. Student likes and dislikes are beine polled; colleges are re-evaluating facilities, prices, rules and staff members. For many, the answer has come through outside food services which study the entire dining experience and make recomendations to each school on the basis of its particular needs. What mothers don't realize as they're tearfully kissed gflodby is that it's their tender roast Dress regulations in the col- ibeef which will be missed. NEWS BRIEFS invited to stay on the carrier Lake Champlain, at Quonset Point. The boys range fa age from 9 to 15. teen-agers tend to "skip or skimp in breakfast," and that girls were worse than boys.
