LIGHTS in the Main Li-
brary-and more specific-
ally, in the main reading
room, the medical reading
room and the main floor
study hall-were emphat-
ically termed inadequate
last week. A Daily survey
showed that there is only
from 3 to 6 foot candles of
lighting in these rooms,
whereas scientific research
showed that "proper light-
ing for ordinary newspaper
reading should be between
20 and 30 foot candles. It
appears that the only at-
tempt to better the situa-
tion was made five years
ago when the walls were
washed. It also appeared
I that the subject had been
ignored since 1940 . . .
Later the cause for this
dimness in the library was
traced back to the State
Legislature by Prof. Lewis
Gram, Director of Plant
Extension, and Walter
Roth, Assistant Superin-
tendent of the Buildings
and Grounds Department.
They pointed out that the
State Legislature has
slashed the University

Post-War Public Works
Program, plans to use $40,-
000 to improve the lighting
in many a campus build-
ing. This was, of course,
only of consoling and qui-
eting value to those who
now squint over tonnes in
the library . . . It is prob-
able that if the students
were questioned, they
would object also to other
wrongs in the library such
as the overheating and the
conversations that always
seem to take place across
the table.
on campus ended last week
with all local groups hav-
ing topped their quotas.
Not including reports from
36 campus women's resi-
dences, coeds have turned
in $3,517 by the middle of
last week. So when the
final tabulation is made
the girls will probably have
exceeded their $3,500 goal
by a substantial amount.
Washtenaw County con-
tributed $96,244 - an a-
mount well over the $92,-
500 quota. Of this, the

signed quota of $43,50. For
two weeks the girls had
worked at the switchboard
at Red Cross headquarters.
But instead of keeping
their pay checks, they do-
nated them to the Red
Cross drive-topped their
quota by $100 and still
have the highest percent-
age contribution of any

DR. RUTHVEN, presi-
dent of the University,
spoke last week at a dis-
cussion sponsored by the
Post-War Council. "In my
opinion," he said, "there
was never a time in the
history of this country
when the schools were sub-
jected to more pressure
groups, and more powerful
pressure groups, than they
are today." He said, how-
ever, that students, alumni
and faculty will insist on
expressing their own opin-
ions. Then-"You cannot

agreements, by talking a-
