Although the new General Library
has not yet been open a year, it is run-
ning nearly to its full capacity, accord-
ing to Librarian William W. Bishop.
"The study hall and the main read-
ing room are fiMed between 9 and 11
o'clock in the morning and 2 and 4
o'clock afternoons," said Librarian
Bishop. "The periodical and graduate
reading rooms are seldom entirely
filled, but on certain days every seat
in the medical reading room is occu-
pied.
"Last Thursday morning when one
big class had a bolt all of the 300
chairs in the main reading room were
taken. More people could be accom-
modated in this room by adding extra
chairs but this would make the tables
crowded.
Already Overtaxed
"When the library was planned an
attempt was made to forecast its needs
with a yearly enrollment in the Uni-
versity of 10,000. This year the enroll-
ment will exceed that number. We
dld not forecast that students will
usually seek in numbers convenient
and quiet places for study," said Mr.
1Pishop. "If the library furnishes the
most convenient and quiet place, it is
sure to have a regular attendance of
persons who do not come to it strictly
for library purposes but merely oc-
cupy its seats as a comfortable resting
place between classes.
"The provision for both students and
faculty was as generous as the appro-
priation for the new building would
permit, and the amount of space given
to the reading rooms was made as
large as possible in the teeth of very
serious opposition - an opposition
based upon the conviction that such
generous provision for large numbers
of undergraduates was unnecessary

and wasteful in view of the number of
students in 1915. It is perfectly pat-
ent that we should have done much
more wisely if we had made provision
for 15 per cent of the expected student
population instead of 10 per cent.
New Buildings Offer Relief
"We expect to get relief on the erec-
tion of a new building for the literary
school as one or more study halls will
be incorporated in this building," said-
Librarian Bishop when asked how' the
situation would be met. "It looks as
though the library will be seriously
crowded before the building can be
built. There is no way we can escape
having crowded conditions in the next
three years unless the University be-
comes smaller."
The library is not crowded on the
book side as there is ample room to
provide for the incoming books for the
next three or four years. At the pres-
ent time there are approximately 450,-
000 volumes in the library. Without
installing new stacks 100,000 more
books could be taken care of, while
by installing new stacks there would
be room for an additional 200,000 vol-
umes.
More than 18,000 books were added
to the library last year. Since Aug. 1.
2,500 books have been coming in
each month, although this rate is not
expected to continue.
AMERICAN LEGION POST MEETS
WEDNESDAY TO ORGANIZE
The University post of the Amer-I
lean Legion will hold a meeting-for
organization purposes Wednesday
evening at the Union. All prospective
members are urged to attend.
Mr. Harry M. Cole, of the chemis-
try faculty, will take charge of the
meeting and he is endeavoring to se-
cure a prominent member of the
legion to deliver an address.
The local post which recently se-
cured a charter ,is to be know as the
University of Michigan Post No. 303,
of the American Legion. Members
of other posts must make out their
applications for transfering accord
ingly.
