Those Were the Days, My Friend!
By Alex Sachare
you're old enough to remember when you could eat a full meal on
campus and still get change back for your buck, this 1941 Lions Den
menu uncovered by Jack Williamson '44 should bring a smile
to your face. Check out the prices below: The most expensive items
on the menu, the Junior Club sandwich and the chicken salad with
tomato slices, cost a whopping 40 cents, while a cheeseburger went
for 15 cents and a hamburger deluxe could be had for 20 cents. A
cup of coffee cost a nickel and ice cream was just a dime. For
comparison, a chicken club sandwich in Café (212), one of the
eateries in the new Lerner Hall, costs $4.49.
