To the Editors of the Crimson:

It seems to be pretty well established that there will be no new dining hall next year. There can be no doubt that the present system in use at Memorial is unsatisfactory, particularly that part of it relating to the assignment of club tables. It is either unfair or it is very hard luck that some men should be compelled to sit at general tables the whole of their college career, while others have the privilege of holding club tables during their entire course. Why would it not be a more equitable arrangement to assign the club tables which are given up at the end of this year only to those applicants who will be juniors or seniors next year? Then if there are any tables left over after this allotment, let these be assigned by lot to applicants from the class of '96. It is not very dreadful to have to eat at a general table for two years, but after that it becomes tiresome.

If the directors of the dining association should see fit to act on this suggestion, no doubt the details could be easily arranged.

'95.To the Editors of the Crimson:

There has been a good deal of talk lately about the poor condition of the back nets on the Jarvis tennis courts and most of the talk has been fault finding. Most of the nets are made of two wire screens placed one over the other. In the first place this does not make a back net high enough to stop the balls and moreover screens are in many places not held together sufficiently tight to keep the balls from going between them. Then again there are several places where the nets are in taters and are of practically no use at all.

Certainly it is the plain duty of the Tennis Association to see that players who pay for the use of courts (and pay such a price) shall find those courts in good condition. As it is now, unless a man is willing to be a burden to his neighbors or to hire a small boy to chase balls for him, his own life will be a burden to him. Cannot the proper authorities give a fair return for the money paid to the Tennis Association?
