Hamburgers, swiss steak or mac-
aroni and cheese-it's up to the
staff of dietitians to decide just
what foods will be placed on the
menu each day in the University
Although complaints are some-
times heard from the students, the
staff is not trying to make enemies
by feeding the residents all their
IN FACT, the chief dietitian,
Miss Kathleen 'Hamm, and her
staff of dietitians in the various
quads and dorms maintain that
they endeavor to serve what every-
one likes, but that it is impossible
to satisfy everyone.
By observing what is taken
from the serving counter and
what foods are consistently left
over and also by listening to
student comments, the dietitians
planning the meals have come to
conclusions about just what the
''favorite'' foods are.
In the women's dorms, for lunch
hot dogs and hamburgers head the
list, with salad plates and bacon
and tomato sandwiches running a
close second. Tuna fish salad
sandwiches are also popular, as
well as soup, especially cream of
tomato, cream of mushroom, veg-
etable and chicken noodle. Dieti-
tians have found that students
complain when soup is not served
In the area of salads, fruit and
tossed greens seem to be well-
liked. Jello salads also are welcome
on the dinner counter.

FOR DINNER, spaghetti and
meat sauce and garlic biead are
greeted with. enthusism, according
to the dietitians. In the line .of
meats, beef, especially swiss steak
or cube steak, and chicken are
French fries and mashed po-
tatoes lead the parade as far as
potatoes are concerned, while
among the vegetables green
beans, peas and carrots seem to
be liked by many of the stu-
dents. Miss Hamm stated that it
is difficult to get variety in plan-
ning vegetables, because there
are so very few to choose among.
On the bread counter, students
seem to favor dinner rolls, biscuits
and muffins rather than plain slic-
Eggs for breakfast bring on a
few morning smiles, as well as do
orange juice or tomato juice.
IN PLANNING desserts, the die-
titians have found that ice cream
heads the list, with apple crisp,
fruit cobblers, pies and jelow fol-
lowing. Fruit is well-liked at lunch
and pie seems to be preferred over
cake and cookies.
Milk, of course, is a top favor-
ite, while coffee helps students -
to wake up in the morning.
Last year all baking for the
dorms and quads, including cake,
pie and cookies, was done in the
Food Service building. However,
the system has been changed this
year, so that each residence hall
is doing it's own baking. Rolls and
bread as well as ice cream are still
made by Food Service.
FOR STUDENTS who are not
taking the trip to Illinois, there
will be a listening party Saturday
afternoon at Hillel.
The married couples group will
get together Saturday night at
8 p.m. for the "Corner Delica-
tessen" featuring dancing,
games and a delicatessen supper

According to manager Margaret
Bell, the purpose of the club is to
develop skills in the game and pro-
vide students with an opportunity
for recreation and relaxation.
Instructions will be furnished by
a member of the Women's Phy-
sical Education department and an
intra-club tournament will be held
at the weekly meetings.
An all-campus doubles and
singles badminton tournament is
annually, sponsored by this or-

ond place in the singles division

A WEEKLY general discussion
is held, at which suggestions for
changes are made. By getting to-
gether to plan, it is hoped more
ideasand variety will be secured
and a few more tastes satisfied.
However, each dietitian is free to
make any changes that she thinks
will please her house better.
In feeding the men, the die-
titians have found that they do
not like quite the same things
as the coeds. Besides wanting
larger portions, they do not seem
to like casserole dishes or salad
In planning menus, the dieti-
tians try to consider first, what
the students like. Also taken into
account is what can be afforded
on food budget, nutritive value,
food in season, difficulty of prep-
aration and combinations of f a-
vor, texture and color that go well
Certain standards set up by the
National Nutritional Council must
be met, also.

is administrator for all the resi-
