Alumnus Gives Small Payroll, No
Rent or Taxes as
Reasons
Editor Michigan Daily,
Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Dear Sir:
I am very much interested in an
article in the daily press quoting
President M. L. Burton, of the Uni-
versity of Michigan, that the Universi-
ty Regents would take some action in
reducing the prices in restaurants
catering to the student trade. I am
very much pleased to know that the
University officials are awakening to
this situation.
There is no doubt that the restaur-
ants around and near the campus are
overcharging the students for food
service, and it would seem to me that
the University has a very excellent
opportunity to lower the prices in
these restaurants and cafeterias with
the co-operation of the Michigan
Union. The purpose of the Union
should be to give a cafeteria service
to the students at a cost price. With
this idea carried out efficiently, the l
cafeteria at the Union would level the
prices of every restaurant catering to
the student trade. What better op-
portunity could the student body have
than applying the competition of the
Union to the extent of leveling the
cafeteria prices to a reasonable figure.
The President says that, "an investi-
gation of food prices in centers where
thousands of men are fed daily, is
being made by University officials to
determine the course to follow in re-
ducing prices here." The investigat-
ors have probably found that 'the
prices are 10% to 20% lower than in
Ann Arbor, and that outside restaur-

ants are operating at a profit. If this
can be accomplished in other centers,'
why not in Ann Arbor?
The Michigan Union is the logical
weapon to set the pace in leveling
restaurant prices. They have no rent,
no taxes, less pay roll and are sup-
posed to operate the cafeteria on a
moderate profit. This would seem a
golden opportunity and easy to ac-
complish with experienced and effici-
ent management.

You know the way it is. i You go to an

not satisfied.

Then you happen in at Flowers and be-
