In October, PAW posted at PAW Online a detailed description of how an alternative selection process for the clubs might work. The proposal, based on the computerized match program used to place medical students in residency programs, was developed by the University’s eating club task force. We invited alumni to respond; following are some of the comments that were received online and by ­letter. Additional letters on this topic were published in the Sept. 22 issue. Hard to believe that the University administration would make such a prodigious and hare-brained effort to eliminate freedom of association, which is to say social distinctions, in campus life. The administration should let well enough alone and let students sort out their own social life.
