   The laundry's not too bad --
could be improved on but it cer-
tainly is an improvement over the
dining hall. The unskilled, very
poor preparation ruins any good
food that, they might get -- Re-
gardless of the fact that they
cook for so many people -- the
food could 'be. improved by better
preparation. It has been done in
other places and should be done
here. -- Jeanne Ivey, '41.
