EDITORS HARVARD HERALD; Allow me to answer some questions that seem to rise in many minds apropos of the article on Memorial Hall in the last number of the Advocate. There was not "on Monday evening any supply of food unfit to be eaten found on the point of being cooked." Neither was there a discovery of food of any description, cooked or uncooked, that was at all in the nature of a "revelation," and most certainly not a "disgusting revelation." On account of no such "revelation," then, is Mr. Balch "an unfit man to be entrusted with the management of the Dining Association," nor is there in the minds of those who know Mr. Balch any suspicion that he ever did or would surreptitiously, or even intentionally, pass through the hands of his cooks and upon the table food not approved by his boarders. Other charges contained in the article, as they relate to matters within the observation of all the members, it is not incumbent here to touch upon. In justice, however, the association should know that the unexpectedly large membership necessitated the employment of additional service to such an extent that it was impossible to secure the best. The process of "weeding out" is taking place as fast as good waiters can be got.
