MEAL SERVLCE Dean Anderson Attends New York Meetings Head of Engineering College Loses No Opportunity to Keep Well Informed PRICES ARE VERY LOW Many improvements have been made in the service and equipment of the university cafeteria, according to the announcement of Miss Lillian Kohn, director, which make it possible to serve meals in an orderly and consecutive manner and to eliminate confusion to a considerable degree when serving large crowds. Two rooms are set aside in the basement of the Administration building for this work, one for students which seats 75, and another for the faculty, seating 50. These are attractively painted .and having beautifully colored furnishings, making the dining rooms desirable places in which to eat. The kitchen is well equipped and al ways open for inspection. Mechanical refrigeration is used in the re frigerator. An electrically driven kitchen machine is used for mashing potatoes, beating merangues, etc., and n machine for cleaning dishes. The supplies bought are only of the best, and' cleanliness is imperative. In Basement of Main Building The university cafeteria has been located in the basement of the Administrative building for seven years. Owing to the crowded conditions, existing on the campus, it has been the only available place, although it is Dean F.
