"When I was a child we moved from

Dr. Randolph G. Adams, custodian
of the Clements library spoke on the-
"Aims and Purposes of the Clements
Library" at the second meeting of the
American association of university
women which was held yesterday In
Martha Cook building.
"The aim of Mr. Clements in giv-j
ing this rare collection to the Univer-
sity," stated Dr. Adams, "is to pro-
mote interest and research in Amer-
ican history in as large a degree as
it is desirable it should exist." He
said that it was shown during the re-
cent war that people knew too much
about war heroes and not enough a-
bout the history of the country. This
is because the few men who have
made a study of this country's history
have hidden their information in tech-
- nical journals which are not read by
the world ast large.
The only practical way for people .
to know their nation's past history1
and to work out a way to be prepared League houses, dormitories, or sor-
