If the hotel mode of conducting Memorial Hall is carried into effect next year, as the recent vote of the Fellows infers, the place will become hardly bearable. The noise and odors arising from the cooking of food for seven hundred men, and the hurry and disorder of its distribution, make the hall now only endurable because it is cheap. Most men are obliged to board at the cheapest place, but that is no reason why they should be forced into eating in the midst of nearly all imaginable discomforts. And, moreover, it is only putting off the difficulty for a short time; the strain on the resources of the University will be just as great when, in a short time, the number of men here has increased according to President Eliot's recent calculation in the Monthly. It is no small injustice to those men, who in the interval before the erection of another great dining hall, must board at Memorial, to make them undergo all the disagreeable consequences of trying to eat in the midst of all the noise and unpleasant confusion which nearly one thousand men would be sure to make.
