A new feature is being added in
the department, beginning with the
J summer session of 1930. A course
has been planned which is intended
I for teachers who expect to spend
I part of their time in the school li-
brary. It Is limited to seniors in!
the College of Literature, Science,
and Arts or in the School of Edu-
cation, who are candidates for the
teachers' life certificate, or to grad-
uate students already in possession
of one. No degree will be given for
this course since itcovers only in
an elementary way the basic cours-
es in library science.
A forthcoming circular to be dis-
tributed by the department will
make a statement of radical chang-
es in requirements for entrance. An
A.B. degree will be a prerequisite
for entrance; if a freshman in the
university wishes to graduate in
the Library Science School she
should plan to spend 5 years at the
University, at the end of which
time she will receive an A.B. in Li-
brary Science, that is, two degrees,
an A.B. plus the special degree.
This is not to be regarded as grad-
uate work, since the department
still remains a part of the College

Derr shook hands and verbally an-
nounced to the microphone thatI
they were satisfied with the terms.
Before making her first Pathe
picture, Miss Lewis will come to
New York for a limited number of!
performances at the Metropolitan
Opera where she is under contract.
She is a lyric soprano. One of her
most famous roles is that of Mimij
in "La Boheme."
Mary Lewis came to New York in1
1920 and soon secured a position
with the "Greenwich Village Fol-
lies." Later, through her persis-
tence she rose from understudy to
prima donna. It was not long be-
fore she won the attention of Flo-
renz Ziegfeld. At the height of her
success as prima' donna in the
"Ziegfeld Follies of 1923," she de-
termined to go to Europe, for in
l New York she had been studying
faithfully v1ith serious opera as her
I goal.
She made her debut in Vienna as
Marguerite in "Faust." Her Ameri-
can debut was made at the Metro-
Ipolitan in New York in 1926 and she
has made subsequent appearances,
