Many said they had signed the petition circulated in Novem ber criticizing the food at the Commons. Barnhart said there was no connection between the two inci dents. “We are also moving some ol the permanent help to Carson Hal when that dining room is in opera tion, and we may be able to give some of these students jobs there,’ he said. Elbert M. Nelson, student super visor of students at the Commons said that the cafeteria is now serving about 600 persons as con trasted with an average of about 750 last term.
