One of the members of the cafeteria staff was at the door with a container in which students had to place aU cereal upon exiting. Lawerence C. Munson, director of food services, stated that it should not have come as a surprise to students because they were informed at the beginning of the semester that food may be consumed in the dining room in Uberal quantities but could not be taken from the dining area. Munson explained that at one time students were permitted to take ice-cream and cereal from the cafeteria, but they did not know how to dispose of the empty boxes. He added that ice-cream boxes were thrown in the pits outside of the cafeteria and over campus grounds. Munson stated that students tend to waste a lot of the food that they take from the cafeteria. Continuing, Munson said, "Students are allowed to take fruit, potato chips, cookies and corn chips from the dining hall." Munson explained that he was aware many students use the cereal that they take during late hours but the good must suffer with the bad. Munson remarked tha students at A&T pay less for meals than any other university in the state. He added that, if our system were changed, students would pay double or even five times as much. Munson stressed that most students are on loans and some of them wUl never pay for the food they are eating now and it will be five to ten years before others finish paying for the food they're eating. The food service director explained that he and his staff try to create an educational situation or environment for students. This can be observed by studying the two display tables in the dining hall. These tables show what is necessary for a well balanced diet and the proper use of eating utensils. Musnson concluded that any one with questions or comments should come by the main office. Students should become more conscious and try to stay abreast of what's going on around them , Munson added.
