Boardwalks are Expensive

The problem of overcoming the muddy condition which is prevalent on the dirt paths of the Yard and the lands adjoining the Law School and other outlying buildings has resulted in the expenditure of much money on the part of the University.

More than six miles of board walk are laid down each fall and removed during the spring after the earth has thawed out and the water has drained away. Recently the paths in the quadrangles of some of the Freshman dormitories have been macadamized thereby doing away with the necessity for temporary wooden paths.

The constant renewal of the worn out boards constitutes no small amount of upkeep.
