Too bad the old Osborn field house is being torn down (Notebook, April 28). In my day it was used to serve training meals to athletic teams before contests. I think they served steak and the trimmings, and then whole wheat toast and honey for dessert. You could have as many of those slices of toast as you wanted, and I took advantage of it. I remember these meals being served in a beautiful room with a fine old fireplace, a mantel shelf, and some decorative tiles along the wall. I hope they at least preserve that fireplace and use it again in some new building. It is probably well over 100 years old and a beautiful reminder of things past.
