While the reasons of the Corporation for tabooing the news stand in the Memorial Transept are now generally appreciated, there is still a tendency to blame the H. D. A. Committee for not allowing Alexander to continue as news agent inside the Hall. As a matter of fact this is not in the power of the Committee. Not only have the Corporation discountenanced a news stand in the Transept, but they have also refused to allow the Association to lease the privilege of selling papers in the Hall.
The fact is, then, that the Association must run the business, or its members will have to do without papers. It is necessary to hire servants to sell the papers. Boys are competent for such office, but if a man wishes to work for a boy's wages he can doubtless find employment.
