Freak's Own ~ School Lunch
Here's a sample from the exercise-book "paper", written 29 June 1970:
CHOICE OF MENU AT SCHOOL LUNCH
Applicants for Menu B were directed to the left of the paying-in table, and were led to a table where Mr. Hartin was distributing the lunches. A further choice of half a cup of coffee or chocolate was also offered. Those who indulged in Menu A were sent to the usual serving hatch and served in the normal way.
Menu B seemed to be far more popular than Menu A, and quite a fair-sized queue formed. When asked which way he went, Mr. W. Wherity said "the grotty way", referring to Menu A. Due to the high popularity of Menu B, latecomers were offered only Menu A.
A spokesman for the authorities said the system will continue "only if it works".
