zines, and University text-books.
The proceeds will be used to

whom are several of the national
officers. Miss Marian McClench,
besides being the general chairman
of the convention, is the national
recording secretary; Dr. Margaret
Elliot, of the School of Business Ad-
ministration, is the national chair-

room and the opportunities affor-
ded by it. The choice few who do
frequent that part of the library
realize an enjoyment not to be
equalled in the pursuit of books in
the other various sections of the
library. Miss Ella M. Hymans who
has for four years assumed the
duties of curator of rare books at
the library said in a recent inter-
view in regard to her work as cur-
ator. "It is perfectly fascinating. I
would just as soon spend all my
time in the library as do anything
else I know of."
Miss Hymans, in speaking of the
qualifications one must present to
engage one's self in such work, said
that aside from a library training
there was no other requirement,
the general requirement being an
extensive knowledge of literature in
its broadest sense. The success in
such a career depends a great deal
on the fitness of the individual.
This fitness, Miss Hynes described
as, "an intangible feeling, probab-
ly innate, for literature,'' Miss Hy-
mans further emphasized that just
handling the books physically was
not enough, although the position
as curator of rare book does in-
volve a great deal of mechanical
work. The girl who selects that,
phase of library work as her voca-
tion must like and be able to ap-
preciate queer old things-even an:
ordinary librarian couldn't step
right out from general library work
into the position.
"A girl will get out it anything
that she wishes to put in it," de-
clared Miss Hymans when asked
what that field of work offered to
the average woman.
"I don't think that any person
could handle the material in the
rare book room and not feel that
she was getting enough out of it to
make it worth while," continued
Miss Hymans. She stated that the
mere viewing of a book like
Gutenberg's Bible, the first book
printed by moveable type, in 1498,
should be enough to inspire awe in

any booklover.
The rare book room is only dif-
ferent from the other divisions of
the Library inasmuch as material
is concerned but policy and tech-
nique are the same. The rare
book room contains the first edi-
tions of books that are rare, some
of which are beautiful in binding
and design. The rareness of a book
can only be adjudged by time. To
some students . the later editions
may be more useful since they are
apt to have corrections and notes,
but to the student who wishes to
get that which the author has put
into his book, the rare book room
collection is invaluable. The books
from this room are seldom taken
outside of the Library, for the
ruling is that rare books shall be
used only in a fireproof building.
In some instances the books are
allowed to be taken out, the case
depending on the book and the in-
Prior to her beginning this work
as curator of rare books, Miss Hy-
mans was employed in the Library
as a general librarian, but when
this position became vacant, she
was offered it by William W. Bishop,
Librarian, because of her unusual
interest in rare book collections. A
part of the work of the rare book
room is to prepare exhibits on the
main floor of the Library.
In accordance with its policy of
fortnightly teas, the Symphonic
League held a "get-together" party
from 2:30 to 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon in the School of Music
Mrs. Earl V. Moore was hostess
of the afternoon, and was assisted
by Dorothy Wilson. Every other
Wednesday afternoon such a party,
sponsored by the Symphonic
League, is given for all women stu-
dents in the School of Music, and a
woman member of the faculty
assisted by a member of the social
committee are the hostesses.
