A boarding student may choose one item from each menu item offered; for example a noon menu may be as follows: Chicken pot pie or club sandwich, whipped potatoes or potatoe chips, whole kernel corn or green beans, assorted salads, assorted deserts, bread, butter and beverage. Offering such a wide variety, several food production problems are encountered. For this reason substitutions will not be permitted. For example, a student may not take two deserts rather than one desert and one salad. Gansen emphasized that there will be "seconds". Students may have seconds on potatoes, other vegetables, bread and butter, as well as beverage. Seconds on hot foods may be obtained when there is a break in the serving line. Students are requested not to crash the line for seconds. For seconds on beverage, students should return with their glass or cup as there are not enough of these items to permit everyone to take two as they go through the line.
