Filthy, thieving students!

Filthy, thieving students!

Dear Salient,

Is free enterprise dead on campus? Obviously not as I noticed in the cafe last week. Two fellows positioned themselves at a table close to one of the coffee vending machines and while one stood as a blind in front of it, the other turned the machine off at the wall. These two then sat at their table for about an hour waiting for unsuspecting students to come along and purchase a hot drink. When their money was put into the machine - nothing happened. After quite a large number of students had wasted their 10c pieces the two aforementioned guys got up —pressed the coin return button and collected quite a substantial amount of money with which they went on a spending spree at the chip bar. It seems to me then that higher education does not go hand in hand with higher morals.
