Tea At League Library Will Feature B

To Be Answered By Miss

Many Faculty Members Of
Library Science School
Will Attend
Special displays and a' tea will
be featured by the League Library
in celebration of National Book Week,
a traditional annual observance,
which begins today and extends to
Nov. 23. The motto adopted by the
library is "Reading for Recreation"
and books will be arranged under
special exhibits to carry out this
Miss Ethel McCormick will pour
at the book week tea to be held
from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the
library. The questions on books and
authors which have been placed in
the question box at the library will be
answered by Miss Mary Wedemeyer,
librarian. Special invitations have
been issued to Mrs. Alexander G.
Ruthven, the personnel of the Dean's
office, heads of dormitories, Mrs.
Mary B. Henderson, faculty members
of the literary school, Dr. Bell and
Dr. Schutz.
Julie Kane In Charge
Julie Kane, '36, chairman of the
house reception committee, will be in
charge of the tea and will be assisted
by members of her committee
Opened in September of this year,
the library is a comparatively new in-
stitution on campus. Funds for a
complete stock of reference books
have been raised by various class
projects. Activity points will be
awarded for work in the library which
is run by undergraduates.
This organization differs from the
Hopwood Library in Angell Hall, in
that the purpose of the League estab-
lishment is cultural and recreational
rather than educational. It contains
approximately 1,000 volumes, includ-
ing modern drama, contemporary
poetry, biography and fiction. The
collection also contains translations
of famous books in foreign languages
and the classics. Popular magazines
are also available. The books are
arranged in sections instead of in
sequence. Cork boards have been
placed in the seven open shelves to1
hold the current display material.
Pictures and clippings concerning
the authors and their works have
been assembled by Miss Wedemeyer,
who obtained her M.A. degree in Li-
brary Science at the University. Prev-
ious to her position here, she has
acted inhthe capacity of librarian
at St. Benedict's College, St. Cloud,
Donations Are Made
Additions to the number of books
have been made- from time to time
through purchases and gifts. The li-
brary is financed by the Undergrad-
uate Book Fund. Recently Dean Alice
C. Lloyd donated to the library 29
volumes of modern drama. "The col-
lection will never be very large," Miss
Wedemeyer stated, "as the aim of the
institution is to keep on hand only
the best of current literature and to
discard it as it is gradually replaced
by newer works."
Theetreasure hunt, which was a
feature of the Freshman Banquet
during orientation week, was so
planned as to familiarize students
with the library. The first League
tea of the season also marked the
formal introduction to the new insti-

Any of the books may be reserved
and will be issued in the order of re-
quest for one week. Later, as more
books are obtained, volumes may be
kept for a longer period, according to
Miss Wedemeyer.

Chaperones Optional
When asked about the social cus-
toms in Siam, and if the women were
as free as in America, she answered,
"the word 'Thai' which the Siamese
people call themselves, means 'free.'
We do much the same as you. The
young girls are allowed to go out at
night chaperoned or not, according
to their parents' wishes."
"In nurses' homes or training
schools in the Orient, however, there
are strict regulations, and we have
to be chaperoned whenever we go to
a dance or even to a movie," she

CALL YOUR ATTENTION to a new feature that our
firm is offering. Re-texturing . . . a new process that renders gar-
ments stain resisting and moisture repellant. An important considera-
tion, when one realizes how frequently many damsels' garments are
transformed from light pastel shades to the inharmonious coloring
of calico by the simple process of spilling everything from coffee to
Tomato Juice.
The astounding thing is this .,.. Re-texturing costs you nothing
extra, when you send your garments to Goldman's for cleaning they
are Re-textured at no extra charge.
