CHUL Will Consider a 14-MealPlan

Students may have the option of a 14-meal-per-week food plan beginning next September if the Committee on Houses and Undergraduate Life (CHUL) approves a plan proposed by its food services subcommittee.

The subcommittee report, which CHUL is expected to vote on at its January meeting, presents two meal plan options: the present plan of 21 meals per week, and a 14-meal plan in which students would pay only for lunch and dinner.

"The plan would be a fine way for people to be able to make a choice about meals," Barbara G. Rosenkrantz, master of Currier House, said yesterday. "A great research university should be able to solve the problems involved," she added.

The subcommittee did not consider the effect an alternate meal plan would have on students receiving financial aid, Archie C. Epps III, dean of students, said yesterday.

Martha C. Lyman, director of financial aid, said it was "uncertain whether financial aid would cover increased board costs," for those financial aid sutdents who opt for the 21-meal plan.

If the Financial Aid Office is able to cover the board increase to students on the 21-meal plan, it would "probably be balanced by a reduction of aid to students on the 14-meal plan," she said.

Many student CHUL members are waiting to see the results of the Student Assembly's college-wide referendum before voting on the plan, William S. Friedman '79, a CHUL representative from Mather House, said yesterday.

The subcommittee did not present any other meal plans to preserve the House system, Epps said. "Our overriding concern was the House system," Epps added.

Frank J. Weissbecker, director of Food Services, released figures indicating that if students had chosen a 14-meal plan this year, they would have saved $133 in board charges. The cost differences reflect only savings in food consumption
