EDITORS HARVARD HERALD : Since the Advocate has set the fashion to grumble at Memorial's deficiencies, allow me to call to your notice the lack of attention bestowed upon those who are sick. A friend, since the beginning of this term, was confined to his room by one of those childish diseases which do not impair the patient's appetite. Our friend did not grumble very much when his meals were brought from Memorial several hours late or stone cold, but he did decidedly object to going without them, which was often the case. The waiter, when remonstrated with, replied that he could not come over, being "on duty," and would be fined fifty cents for not being at his post. It was not exactly his fault, for he figured it up that were he fined every day, with eighteen dollars a month wages, he would have three dollars, which would take off all the profits. This should be remedied, for it is bad enough to be ill-fed when a person is able to be out and about, but when confined to one's room it is more than disagreeable.

REFORMER.
