The members of the Harvard Dining Association voted last month by 638 to 55 to accept the new plan of the directors whereby board will be served at Memorial Hall on the American plan at $5 a week. There was little opposition to the change as the vote shows and while a number of people interested in the Association are not confident that it is the best basis on which to place the Association for good and all, there is no question it will be an improvement, and affairs seem to work out so uncertainly in connection with Memorial that it would be a rash prediction to state that this would not be perhaps the correct solution.
The various aspects of the situation have been dwelt on in this column too recently to call for repetition. The present need is not discussion but boarders. It has been figured that to make the American plan a success there must be at least 800 regular members and the more men eating regularly at the Hall the better will be the board. It is apparent that every effort will be made to make the service and menus as attractive as possible and there is no reason why it cannot be made as pleasant as any boarding place in Cambridge.
