FIREE NEW WINGS:
Proposed Library Annex
Would Double Capacity

By PETE HOTTON
The library addition, planned
by the University, will double the
General Library's present capacity
anid permit the shelving of more
than a million and a half books,
auoding to S. W. McAllister, As-
sociate Director of the Library.
The proposed addition is coin-
posed of three wings to be locatea
toward the rear of the presen
structure on the east, west and
south.
THIS WOULD MAKE the li-
brary "two-fronted," with main
entrances on the south as well as
the north side, McAllister said.
The width from east to west will
be nearly 300 feet. about the
length of a football field.
The books in the present
building total more than 770,000
volumes. A good many overflow
from the overcrowded shelves to
the floor of the aisles, McAllis-
ter said. There are some 700,-
000 more books on the campus
in 20. branch libraries.
The book stack structure, or
storage space for books not on re-
serve, will be doubled in size. Each
of the four sections in the ,center
of the library will be eight sto-
ries high. Sometime in the not so
Democrat Jot
Only Half Done
---Mrs. Price
Only half the job was done in
the November elections, according
to Margaret Price, county vice-
chairman of the Democratic Party,
who spoke to a meeting of the
Young Democrats.
-Look to the spring." was the
advice of Mrs. Price, who As
Democratic candidate for Audi-
tor-General in the recent race.
Governor-elect G. Mennen Wil-
liams does not have a majority
on his administrative board, she
said, and this majority must be
obtained in the spring without a
national picture in the back-
ground.
Mrs. Price urged the group to
follow Williams' legislative pro-
gram closely and see that people
are informed on his major aims.
The voters must also know how
Williams' nine-point program is
faring in the Legislature, she said.
There is a real roe >or young
p eople to play, she said, in mak-
ing it clear that the Democratic
party is behind the Governor and
prepared to support him.

near future a stack tower 14 sto-
ries high can be erected over the
center portion.
TiE OTHER sections of the
addition will be devoted to serv-
ice functions. An added study
oom will be located opposite the
present main floor hall. The tech-
:ical staff, now housed on the east
ide, will occupy a large room in
,he west wing on the second floor.
Most of the executive offices
will be situated on the first floor,
McAllister added
Chief changes in the existing
structure will be the enlargement
of the area used by the circulation
department back to the wall of
the old area used by the circula-
tion department back to the wall
cf the old library, where there is
now a light well. This addition will
make the room about three times
its present size.
ACCORDING T 0 McAllister
these changes are planned to meet
two basic requirements of the li-
brary, to provide study and re-
search space for a greatly en-
larged student body and to accom-
modate an already large book col-
lection which grows at the rate
of 30,000 volumes annually.
The present library was
opened in 1920, when about 6,-
000 students were enrolled at
the University. It was over-
crowded from the start, except
for its graduate facilities, Mc-
Allister said.
In addition to this, service to
the new departments set up by the
University necessitates the addi-
tion of more room and more books.
When the addition is completed,
probably within the next two
years, a student will be able to sit
down and study in peace and quiet
without bumping elbows every
time he turns a page."

Hindustan Club
To Give Indian
Dinner Sunday
The Hindustan Club's Sunday
dinner will feature Indian na-
tional dishes slightly modified to
suit all students' tastes.
Man iMehta, the club's presi-
dent, says that normally Indians
are like Mexicans in their love for
chili powder, but that in defer-
ence to those living in colder cli-
mates, the amount of seasoning
will be cut down.
The Hindustan Dinner, to take
place at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow at
the International Center, is the
second in a series given by foreign
students to acquaint other stu-
dents with the cooking and cus-
toms of different national groups.
Because the International Cen-
ter has facilities for the feeding of
only 90 students and 85 Indian
students are enrolled at the Uni-
versity, only a limited number of
Indians will be present, in order
to make room for people 'from
other lands.
Tickets are 85 cents and may be
;ecured at the International Cen-
ter.

GRASS ROOTS-The background in this scene should be familiar to all loyal Michigan rooters,
but that's not the Michigan football team in the foreground. Shown are workers for the Athletic
Administration taking up sod in Michigan Stadium preparatory to pianiing new grass next Spring.
The old sod is being replanted as lawn at the front and rear of the new General Administration
Building. During the past year, the cleats of the championship Michigan football powerhouse
and their luckless opponents churned the grass into mud, necessitating the new look for the Stadium.

Civil Rights Group
Plans 'UChapter
Plans for a new civil rights
group have been launched with
an organizational meeting to form
a campus branch of the American
Civil Rights Congress.
At the meeting, the group made
plans to stage a membership drive
next semester, to sponsor speakers
on civil rights before dormitories
and other g oups, and to submit a
constitution for approval of the
Student Affairs Committee next
week or after vacation.
Also discussed were the current
Federal indictments against 12
Communist Party leaders.
