Moans From the Tory Towers

Moans From the Tory Towers

Sir,—Have you ever posted a letter in the mailbox in the main entrance? If so don't be fooled by the notice stating the clearing times as 11.30, 2.30 and 4.30. The person responsible for clearing the box is either too lazy to clear it more than once a day or else if he is now only meant to clear it this often, too lazy to change the notice on the box stating the new clearance time. The box is never cleared Saturday morning.

For good clean sport I suggest you take a stroll around by the incinerator and watch the half dozen rats and other vermin playing in the unburned rubbish—rumour has it that this free entertainment is provided for us because the Biology Department staff object to the smoke.

And then again to raise another ghost of the past—where's the drinking-fountain We have often been promised, the clean towels, soap and toilet paper in the men's lavatory?

—Truscott H.

[To Truscott II a laurel—he smelt a rat and wishes with Salient to nip it in the bud—Ed.]
