CAFETERIA ADDITION—The new structure extends into the quad and is already crowded to capacity. An expected enrollment of 6300 in the fall will add several hundred more students to the competition for chairs. Cafeteria-ology IA -Most Popular Course EVERY student’s favorite course is Cafeteria- ology IA! Happily, it’s more than an instructor¬ less area of learning; it’s an endless fashion show, a dating bureau, a food-line, a meeting place, a snack bar, a smoking lounge—even at times a study hall, despite unsubdued squeals and unin¬ hibited young laughter. The newly enlarged eating center opened some sixteen months ago, and immediately was over¬ crowded—taking on functions other than gastro¬ nomic. Today, the penal refectory atmosphere of long rows of tables is continuously jammed with students, encumbered with assorted paraphernalia like luggage-sized purses, over-sized parkas, and all-sized books, most of the junk piled high on the eating tables and soon besmirched with sugar leavings, ketchup red, and Coke stains. On the walls gaudy posters announcing everything lend an air of modern art to the surroundings. Where Friends Meet to Eat Surprisingly perhaps, segregation is a way of life here. Groups of varying racial descent congre¬ gate at tables together like birds huddled against the cold. And sorority and fraternity members gather at other tables for informal confabs with their sisters and brothers. Friends are especially easy to make during the campus political rallies which are not really serious events. Recently a student petition circulated on the campus pleading for a new Student Union Build¬ ing which would include a lounge and browsing rooms for recreational reading. More recently, the new district superintendent, Walter T. Coultas, recognized that urgent need, adding that meeting rooms for student-faculty ’’bull sessions” should be included. But such a building seems years away. Hangout for Learners In the meantime, the Cafeteria continues to be the popular hangout for the gangs of students, more than 5140, who have much relaxing and socializing and informal learning to do between classes. This uproarious class—before 8 a.m. in the morning to closing early in the afternoon—is a focal point of student gaiety and a temporary emotional release from personal and world prob¬ lems. Most important! Since instructors avoid en¬ trapment there, the collegians freely pass out judg¬ ments concerning anybody. All the students get A’s. 7

WATCHING — This group takes time out from intellec¬ tual discussion to watch the cameraman. SYMPATHY — A compas¬ sionate ear can always be found in the cafeteria—for student woes. SUNSHINE—Talk moves to the outside—the portico and benches—in fine weather.
