A week or so ago a vague rumor of dissatisfaction at the food served at the Varsity Club training tables began to circulate through the College. The CRIMSON has investigated the rumor and has discovered certain facts which we feel should be generally known.

When the football training tables were about to start last fall, the Athletic Association thinking that the Varsity Club's charge for meals was too high, undertook to manage the tables itself. This has been the arrangement throughout the year. Dissatisfaction has been expressed by the captains of the teams at various times, and on Saturday active steps were taken in the matter, because the men who have been eating at the tables have been unable to keep in good condition and have, in some cases, entered contests unfitted to do their best. The trouble has evidently not been with the quality of the food served but rather in the preparation and manner of service. Certain economies, not too pleasant and usually false, have also been practiced which have made the tables disagreeable.

In the presence of these facts the points which should be clearly understood are that the Varsity Club is not responsible, that it is about to do all in its power to remedy the trouble, and that the Athletic Association has either neglected the training tables or has practiced a false economy in food which is out of keeping with the assurance with which it assumed the responsibility in the matter.
