Co-op Serves 'Do-It-Yourself' Meals
A number of students at Naka- 4
mura House treat the problem of
cooking for large groups in a novel i
Th students are residents of .,
one of the eight co-operative
houses on campus. They cook their.
own meals and do all the work at
the house to keep expenses down..
One chief cook is responsible for ""
each of the 20 weekly meals. (No:
supper is served on Sunday.) .He;
gets to work about four hours be-:
fore serving time; cooking for 55.
people takes a while.
Completely in charge of meal
production, he has one assistant
who starts to help much later, do-
ing such chores as setting the


Food Budget Low
Dinner is the big meal at Naka-
mura..The residents feel that it's
better to have one big, good meal
and two lighter ones than three
which are medium-sized and unap-
petizing. This plan also helps
keep the food budget under ten
dollars a week per man.
Dishwashing is handled by two
other students, who often do this
two or three times a week to fulfill
their work quota.
A central Inter-Purchasing Fund
supplies canned goods to all the
co-ops. Nakamura House buys its
meat and dairy products from a

To Talk Today
A look into "Prospects for the

Prof. A. J. Meyer of Harvard Uni-
The speech, under the auspices
of the Near Eastern Studies de-
partment will be held in Auditor-
ium C, Angell Hall.
According to Prof. William D.
Schorger of the anthropology and

with "the immediate economic
Prof. Meyer's speech will deal
prospects in the Near East, the ef--
feet of current aid and national

Prof. Meyer, Prof. Schorger said,

German Contest
Winners Disclosed
The German department recent-
ly announced the winners of the
Kothe-Hildner Competition for
German students.
The first and second prizes of

other houses.
Each roomer and boarder at the
house is responsible for about five
hours of work per week. Because
"Nak" House is the largest in the
co-op system, work quotas are low-
er than in some of the other
The work program often scares
people away from joining co-ops,
but members have found the sys-
tem works very well, once you get
used to it. "You can only study so
many hours a day," House Presi-
dent Harley Ristad, '57E, said.
Working, he feels, simply puts to
good use time that would normally
be wasted.
Strive For Self-Sufficiency
The men living at the house try
to be as self-sufficient as possible.
All minor troubles are taken care
of by whoever happens to know
something about the particular
field. More extensive repairs are

handled by outside firms, but only
after making sure the job is being
done as inexpensively as possible.
Nakamura House is quietly
proud of its large number of for-
eign students, as are the other
houses. These students, on limited
budgets, have found no cheaper
way of living at the University.
These students also provide evi-
dence of the long-standing co-
operative policy of admitting stu-
dents in the order in which they
apply, without regard to other cri-
teria. The Inter-Cooperative Coun-
cil publishes a pamphlet called
"Democracy in Action," which the
house members take for granted.
They don't express it in the
same terms, however. "We have
something here we like," is the
general feeling about life in Naka-
mura House. "We always manage
to find enough people who agree
with us to keep going and keep
