Complaints from students and superintendents prompted the Committee to change its position from a "don't enforce" to an "enforce" attitude toward" the no-pet rule, according to Dean May. The rule will be activated after Christmas vacation.
After a long discussion of the lettuce issue, the Committee voted to mittee on Lettuce testified at the meeting.
The main concern of the meeting was the possibility that Harvard might, in adopting the policy of only buying UFW lettuce, be forced at some point to pay high prices which would affect students financially, Dean May explained. In the event of a scarcity of UFW lettuce, which would cause price hikes, lettuce substitutes such as romaine or cabbage will be purchased, May said.
The Committee also voted to keep one dining hall open this Christmas vacation, as in former years to provide for students remaining in the Cambridge area.
