Increasing Coffee Charges
Bring Campus Controversy
By JIM WALLACE
Along with the campus-wide
controversies concerning the long
skirts and high-priced haircuts
great feeling has been generated
over the now universal ten-cent cup
Much was said and written about
this matter fall term of last year
but interest gradually died out be
cause a small handful of the cam
pus culinary outposts reverted to
the traditional exchange of a five
cent piece for a cup of coffee.
But now all is changed. Even the
las't strongholds of five-cent cof
fee have fallen before the on
slaught of the dime-a-cup group.
With this in mind some of the lead
ers of last year’s “Nickel Cuppers”
were asked for their opinions on the
One of the more prominent mem
bers said that he felt that a strong
link in the chain which goes to
make up a liberal arts institution
was being endangered by the new
high prices. He maintained that
the basis of a broad and liberal ed
ucation was discussion over coffee
cups. But he believed that the new
prices would all but wipe out this
important form of distributing
ideas and opinions. For what col
lege student, he asked, can spend
much time over ten-cent cups of

Dr. Cooper was assistant professor
of physics at the University of
North Carolina and did research
work for the navy.
Goldberg got his 3.A."degree at
Reed college and has done further
work at University of Chicago and
University of California. He has
been in the navy.
The mathematics department
has one new professor, Dr. I. M.
Niven, associate professor of al

ate at the University of Chicago
and has taught at the University
of Illinois and at Purdue.

organization also bemoaned 'the
trend of events. He admitted that
several establishments now feature
coffee and donuts for a dime but
he insisted that the eating of do
nuts was not at all conducive to
good bridge playing. In fact, he
even pointed out that it is definite
ly frowned upon in all higher cir
cles of society.
Those who study while they sip
were just as critical of the situa
tion. An econ major argued that
all the theories presented in her
classes seemed somehow to pale
before the cold fact that the wait
ress always inscribed her check
with “cof . . 10c.” She held that the
dime cups were just not consistent
with the laws of supply and de
mand . , . as she understood
things, it was more closely related
to the law of diminishing returns.
Even the casual caffein addicts
were protesting more than mildly.
They were closely watching papers
to see the outcome of buyers’
strikes on commodities such as
butter and eggs. They admitted
that perhaps coffee wasn’t abso
lutely necessary to their lives, but
they were the first to insist that a
comradely cup was the best way
to while away the time between a
9 o’clock and an eleven o'clock.

ple'tely to entice the adult movie
goer into an acceptance of what he
sees as being credible.
If someone down south would
take the trouble to look beyond the
corner of Hollywood and Vine he
would find that all the women that
men fall in love with are not rav

The producers will say, most em
phatically, that in the first place
they can’t produce frank and hon
est movies because of censorship
difficulties, and in the second place
there is no market for them. The
latter is the more important rea
son to these men, and as a would
be capitalist, I can sympathize with
their point of view.
As a ticket-buyer, however, I
believe that theirs is a false prem
ise. Who says that the public does
n’t want or can’t understand adult
and realistic film drama?
And who says the public won’t
support such pictures ? It’s a mat
ter of financial record that movies
like “The Informer,” “Make Way
For Tomorrow,” “Scarface,” and
many others have rolled up fine
profits even after .some of them
had bad starts. The word gets
around that here, for a change, is
a fine picture—one worth seeing.
The word also gets around about
absolute tripe like the recent “Dead
Reckoning,” starring Humphrey
Bogart and Lizabeth Scott. I imag
ine exhibitors wept secretly when
audiences laughed uproariously at
Miss Scott’s dramatically pitiful
deathbed line, “This is it. . .”
One line from one pic'tufe—but
such hammy sequences have been
and probably will be repeated
countless times on the screen.
