ELIOT, DUNSTER, LOWELL MEN HAVE TO PUT TACKS IN WALLS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

One of Lehman Hall's favorite publications is a little circular which asks students not to put nails in walls. But little attention is apparently paid to this regulation since walls have to be done over about once every three years.
