Pigs is Pigs

Pigs is Pigs

Is the common common room meant to be a common cesspool? The floor is covered with waste—cigarette butts and ash. apple cores, orange peels, dead matches, papers and plain common dirt and dust.

Although the frequenters of the room are particularly blamable for their slovenly habits Stud. Ass. is more culpable. After all what can be expected if waste paper bins are not supplied in sufficient numbers, the few ashtrays infrequently emptied and the floors swept only now and again?

If Stud. Ass. have made some cleaning arrangements they are totally inadequate and would appear to be A Reflection of the General Efficiency and Competence of Stud. Ass.

Is it too much to ask for more waste-paner bins and ashtrays, and to nave the common room and the corridors swept out once every 24 hours, five days a week or is there a good reason why this is not practicable?

P. Loughnan.


[Ashtrays and bins are now provided: there are 12 ashtrays in the editorial room—but people still prefer using the floor.]
