Less Reason to Rumble

Less Reason to Rumble

From Monday, August 14, the Cafeteria will serve only a light evening meal. This is the gist of an Executive decision released by Chris. Harvie, for the Caf. Committee of the Executive.

"During the last year, the Caf had lost about £10 a week. This is due, partly, to the increase in wages and prices and to the type of Cafeteria we have to run. A light evening meal will, we hope, cut wages and prices sufficiently to help make up the loss, or at least to make us break even.

The meal will consist of a soup and a savoury dish of potatoes, macaroni cheese, salad, perhaps devilled kidneys, or something similar with a minimum charge of probably 1/6. There will be sandwiches, cakes, bread and butter as at present

We felt that it was possible to introduce this type of evening meal as there is only a small number of students who regularly have both midday and evening meals in the Caf.

Most could have a satisfactory hot meal elsewhere.

We regret that it is necessary to introduce this type of meal as a substitute for a dinner, but we feel that this is the only alternative to even higher prices.

We hope that you will continue to support the Caf. for it is by far the best common common room we can have."

—Chris Harvie—for the Caf. Committee.
