THE MICI-11-4-P-AN

BOOKWORM SEASON:
Sudets Jam Libar
As Exams Draw Near

"Standing Room Only" was the
rule again this week as semester's
end found the General Library
and all campus study halls strain-
ing at the seams.
With the arrival of the four-
teenth week of classes (excluding
the two weeks of Christmas vaca-
tion), a peak in the use of library
and study hall facilities was
reached.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland,

Jan.

10-/P)-An aid to former King
Mihai of Romania said today Mi-
hai's expected marriage to Prin-
cess Anne of Bourbon-Parma is
off, at least for the immediate fu-
ture.
The 24-year-old princess inter-
rupted her journey from Copen-
hagen to meet the former mon-
arch and announced she was go-
ing instead to Luxembourg.
The dramatic denouement to
the king's abdication and post-
ponement of the romantic rendez-
vous was explained by Maj. Jac-
ques Vergotti, Mihai's spokesman,
who said a love "entanglement"
right now could be used by Ro-
manian Communists to destroy
his hopes of eventually returning
to his throne.
Reason for Abdication
Most persons in the entourage
of the Prince of Hohenzollern, as
26-year-old Mihai is now known,
have stressed that he abdicated
for "political reasons" and not to
"marry the girl he loves."
Romanian Communists have
appeared to be trying to give the
impression Mihai was an unstable,
playboy, following in the foot-
steps of his father, former King
Carol II, who once renounced his
rights to the throne for romantic
reasons.
Unlucky in Love
The unhappy state of Mihai
and Anne's love affair was dis-
closed when the Danish princess,
looking pale and tired, got off the
train at Liege, Belgium, in mid-
journey from dopenhagen to Lau-
sanne.
With her mother, Princess Mar-
grethe, she transferred to an au-
tomobile and said she was going
instead to Luxembourg, where she
has relatives, "for an undeter-
mined period and have a little
rest."
She said she did not expect Mi-
hai to join her there, and added
wanly: "I have no definite plan
yet. I might go to Paris but this
is not certain. You see we have
been having such a lot of troubles
and changings that no settlement
could have been made up to now."
Faculty Wives To Meet
The Facuaty Wives' Club will
meet at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the
University Community Center in
Willow Village.
Miss Marian Wilson, Project
Services Adviser with FHA, will
give a talk about her work over-
seas with UNRRA and displaced
persons. She will also show pic-
tures taken in Palestine and
Egypt.

tion at Angell Hall Study hall
and the General Library's first'
floor and basement study halls,
delivery and charging desks re-
vealed an almost over-night 40
per cent increase over the normal
circulation figure.
According to chief circulation
librarian Fred L. Dimock, circu-
lation of books has jumped from
about 1,400 to 2,000 books a day.
Patient Students
Commenting on the three- and
four-deep line-ups of students
waiting for books at the delivery
desk during this "rush" period,
Dimock enthusiastically praised
their "patience" and "coopera-
tion."
A maximum staff , of four is:
working behind the delivery desk
nowaday's, while the number ofi
workers at the three carrier sta-]
tions in the "stacks" has been
doubled for the peak daily period,
from 2 to 5 p.m.-
Unreserved Seats
With final exams and the
weather as the two principal
causes of congestion, the mid-;
morning and mid-afternoon pe-i
riods this week found desk and
chair space at a premium. TheI
lucky 1,000 students who got
there first filled the library's seat-
ing accommodations to capacity.1
The overflow was to be found1
filling 20 divisional libraries and
study halls, the average capacity
of each of these being 100 stu
dents.
Speech Dept.
To Give Play
The campus will be treated to a
bit of Shakespeare this week when
the Speech Department's Play,
Production presents the pastoral
comedy "As You Like It" at 8 p.m.
Wednesday through Saturday at
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
This week's program will wind
up a busy semester which has in-
cluded two bills of one-act plays
and Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer-
prize winning drama, "Our Town."
The play is inder the direction
of Prof. William Halstead of the
speech department. Dorothy Gut-
enkust will portray Rosalind and
Norma Katz will take the part
of Celia, her cousin.
The leading comedy role ofP
Touchstone, the clown, will be
taken by James Drummond. Other
leading roles will be played by
Jack Iskin and Edmund Johnston
who will portray Duke Senior and
Duke Frederick respectively.
Tickets will go on sale Monday
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Box Office. A special rate for stu-
dents will be in effect for the
Wednesday and Thursday per-
formances.
Poker rewards a skillful player
more than any other card game,
according to the Encyclopedia
Britannica. Patience, rather than
a "poker face," is a prime quality
of the successful player, enabling
him to drop out time after time
until a good hand comes along.
Even more important is the good
player's insistence on receiving
proper "odds" for every bet he
makes.
