From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Jan. 23, 1912:
"Milk chocolate is absolutely 'tabooed.' It is bad for University students, according to the Board of Regents, and consequently they will not allow it to be sold at the new lunch room which will be started in the basement of Fraser hall soon. William Allen White stated in the discussion about the advisability of selling milk chocolate to appease the appetites of hungry students and possibly hungry professors and it is not known, however, whether or not professors are fond of milk chocolate or not -- that milk chocolate was bad for the stomach. As the lunch room was to serve only nutritious and wholesome things, milk chocolate was soon stricken off the menu. The students are not heartily in favor of the plan adopted by the regents if the popular talk on the hill is any sign. The lunch room which will be started will be unique in other respects besides the lack of milk chocolate. In order to get anything to eat at the University 'cafe' one must put in his order twenty-four hours before he expects to be served.... Each day they will have their choice of tea or coffee. With this will be served a wholesome sandwich, either tongue, ham, beef or some other meat. Then for dessert -- well there will be no dessert or milk chocolate. According to the members of the Board of Regents, this lunch system is merely 'to stay the stomach' for those who are so unfortunate as to not to be able to get to their homes."
