CONSIDERABLE fault, we regret to say, has been found with the administration of the Dining Hall. The food, it is said, is of poor quality; the price of board has been greatly increased; the monthly statements of expenses no longer appear; the Auditor presents his report to the Directors in such a shape, that, by his own admission, verification is impossible; Directors are neglectful of their duty, and their authority is not respected by the head waiter and the steward; employes are inefficient and uncivil. And the great majority of such complaints are only too well founded. It is painfully evident that an immediate and radical improvement in the management of the Hall is necessary. But we would remind the fault-finders that the remedy is in their own hands. No one has a right to complain of the management of the Dining Association unless he is willing to give some time and pains to its improvement. At present hardly one man in ten attends the meetings at which Directors are chosen, or makes any effort to aid the board by promptly reporting to them all deficiencies. If there be any members of the Harvard Dining Association who have any reason to desire a change in the conduct of the Hall, let them participate in the election of officers shortly to be held, or else for ever after hold their peace.
