Architects overcome
problems for library

SOME OF THE library's hallways
are paneled with rich, deep oak, which
Birkerts said helps provide a transition
from the traditional of the gothic Law
Quad to the modern of the new library.
The new library, which will not be
open to undergraduates, has 246
carrels, each of which will be used by
three law students. Birkerts specially
designed the carrels so that they are not
lockable in themselves but have
bookshelves behind glass that can be
locked. This innovation will allow other
students to have access to the carrels
when the assigned students are not
using them, he said.
Below a second, smaller skylight in
the rear of the library is a student
lounge. The lounge, equipped with a
seating area and tables, will not have
vending machines, however, and eating

will not be allowed.
THE LIBRARY also boasts a
seminar room. Complete with purple
wood, the room will seat about 30 people
and will be acoustically insulated.
In the library's stacks, which are ac-
cessible to handicapped students, one of
the most notable innovations is a two-
foot piece of glass which extends out of
the ceiling in several areas. In case of a
fire, the glass is designed to trap
smoke, which travels along the ceiling.
The library, of course, is also equipped
with a sprinkler system which is ac-
tivated only after an alarm delay to
save books which might be un-
necessarily damaged by water.
The library which contains 77,000
square feet of floor space and required
3% years to build, was funded entirely
by private contributions, University of-
ficials have said.

Prof says New Deal
altered social powers

(Continued from Page 1)~
passed today are too complex and ac-
cused the government of "taking
responsibility for all our roles."
"I don't want any government to tell
me what to do unless they can tell me
what they're gonna do before they do
it," he said.
The second republic was defended
during a panel discussion by University

law professors Francis Allen, Theodore
St. Antoine, Joseph Sax and Philip
Soper following Lowi's talk.
Soper, who admitted he had been
"captured" by the second republic,"
said when lawmakers have to deal with
"inherent complexity in subject mat-
ter...imprecision will exist."
"The second republic is a provocative
concept," St. Antoine said, but added
that he could not condone the 19th cen-
tury system Lowe termed the "golden
age of democracy." How can it be
calledthat, St. Antoine asked, if women
could not vote and blacks were not
citizens?

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Postal rates hit 20 cents today
WASHINGTON- Postal rates go up again today, making this the only
year in history with two jumps in mail rates.
The charge for sending first-class letters went to 20 cents, up from the 18
cents that had been in effect since March 22.
"We need the income and have since March," said Postmaster General
William F. Bolger. "We had lost. $126 million by Oct. 1 because we didn't
have 20 cents."
He referred to a running dispute with the Postal Rate Commission, which
has refused since April 1980 to approve the 20-cent rate. The Postal Service
finally took the unprecedented move of by-passing the rate commission and
raised the rate anyway.
Reagan's job rating low
on environmental issues
NEW YORK- President Reagan's job rating for handling environmental
issues lags behind his overall performance rating, according to the latest
Associated Press-NBC News poll.
Thirty percent of the 1,598 adults telephoned Oct. 25-26 in the scientific
random sampling said they thinkReagan is doing a good or excellent job in
dealing with environmental issues.
Thirty-seven percent said he is doing only a fair job in dealing with en-
vironmental issues, while 24 percent said poor and 9 percent were not sure.
Reagan's environmental approval rating was well below his overall
rating, where.51 percent said he is doing a good or excellent job as president.
Six hostages still held at prison
GRATERFORD, Pa.- Convicts freed 29 fellow inmates but kept six
prison employees and perhaps other inmates hostage yesterday as a state
prison standoff unravelled in its fourth day.
Three guards, three civilian kitchen workers and seven inmates remained
in the unheated kitchen at the State Correctional Institution.
Of the seven inmates, officials believed at least four were to blame for the
standoff and were apparently led by'a man jailed for killing a policeman and
two prison wardens.
The remaining hostages were believed to be unharmed, said Correction
Bureau spokesman Kenneth Robinson, and negotiations continued to gain
their release from the inmates who corralled them after a foiled escape
Wednesday )tight.
Whale returns home after
Greenpeace frees it from Navy
PARKSVILLE British Columbia- A beluga whale that was released
from its pen, allegedly by the environmentalist Greenpeace Foundation,
swam back home on its own yesterday, the U.S. Navy said.
"We're sure glad he's back," said Dick Meyer, a spokesman for the Naval
Undersea Warfare Engineering Station at Keyport, Wash.
The Greenpeace Foundation had claimed responsibility for slashing the
pen's netting and freeing one of the two beluga whales being trained at
Parksville to recover torpedoes for the U.S. Navy.
The pen already had been repaired when the 1,100-pound white male whale
was seen swimming nearby yesterday, said Meyer. The pen was opened and
the whale swam in, he said.
Patrick Moore, Canadian Greenpeace director, said Friday the liberation
of the whale "was the act of an organization representing... the majority of
people in North America who believe whales should be free."
Scouts blamed for forest fire
BOISE, Idaho- A Boy Scout troop's failure to puout a campfire caused a
major forest fire in1979, the federal government claims in a suit filed again-
st the scouts.
A lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court here last week alleges that members
of the Snake River Council of the Boy Scouts failed to put out a campfire in
the Challis National Forest in July, 1979.

By HARLAN KAHN
It was all praise and celebration at
yesterday's dedication of the Univer-
sity law school's new library.
The two-hour dedication of the new
$9.5 million underground library was
highlighted by speeches by a number of
University and national noteables, in-
cluding former Supreme Court Justice
Potter Stewart, and U.S. Circuit Judge
Carl McGowan.
THE SPEAKERS gave high praise to
the new library and the University's
School of Law, and Stewart in his brief
address called the University's "one of
our nation's truly great law schools."
John Pickering, chairman of the
National Committee for the Library
'Addition, spoke of the long road from
the library's conception toyesterday's
dedication. "There was more money
put into a hole in the ground than the en-
tire (Law) Quadrangle cost," he said.

Pickering also recalled the debate over
what style the new library should be
built in - a debate which he said
culminated in the decision that "in-
stead of erecting a building, we would
bury one."
LAW SCHOOL Dean Terrance San-
dalow introduced the library's
designer, architecture Prof. Gunner
Birkerts, as "the one man most respon-
sible for the elation of this day."
Birkerts, addressing the crowd of
more than 350 people at Rackham
Auditorium, spoke of the many trials of
the library's creation, which took seven
years from the time of its conception to
the day it opened.
University President Harold Shapiro,
Regent Robert Nederlander (D-
Birmingham), and former law school
Dean Ted St. Antoine also attended the
dedication of the impressive limestone
and glass library.
