Offers Home Comfort
Men are being offered another
Y opportunity to invade the sanc-
tions of the League Library which,
is open to women students only

day evening and Friday afternoon
, An opera listening series will be-
gin this Saturday featuring Verdi's
Rigoletto. The library opens at
1 p.m. and the opera begins at 2

SECLUSION FROM the hustle
of pre-Christmas shopping for
those coeds who desire comfort
and quiet for study is offered by
the League Library during the re-
mainder of the week.
Informality is the keynote to
the mode of conduct which is
carried out in the library. Shoe-
less feet propped up on the
couches and bluejean clad coeds
may be found taking advantage
of the provided facilities.
Tables and shelves dispersed
throughout the room contain a
wide variety of the latest popular
Reference works, biographies
and fiction books are included in
the League collection which num-
bers over 3,500 volumes.

ONE OF the largest drama col-
lections on campus is to be found
on the League shelves. This col-
lection is being compiled as a liv-
ing memorial to Alice Crocker
Lloyd, former Dean of Women.
A circulation period of three
days is enforced for drama, poe-
try and periodicals. Fiction and
non-fiction books may be taken
out for a two week period.
The library is open from 1 to
5:30 p.m. and from 7 to 10 p.m.
Monday through Friday. On Sat-
urday the hours are from 1 to
5:30 p.m. and from 2 to 5 p.m. and

Weather or not, the 24 mem-
bers of the medical service and
honorary society will be swinging
their pails for the once-a-year
Tag Day contributions.

BEGUN IN 1927 the money col-
lected is used to comfort the chil-
dren confined to University Hos-
pital in such ways as the Christ-
mas Party, the library of children's
books, and phonograph records
for bedridden children.
Operated all year, the Galen
Shop has proved the bright spot
in many of the hospitalized chil-
dren's day. Here, they have a
chance to work with wood, lea-
ther, weaving looms and other
In addition to keeping them
busy, the shop also teaches them
how to make useful and attrac-
tive things, and that there are
many things they can do even
though they are not at home.
This year's goal for the Ckrist-
mas Drive has been set at $5,000,
$1,000 above the goal set last year,
according to Wally Kirsten, Ga-
len's publicity manager.
"If we can raise the amount,"
he said, "we'll be able to supply
that many more toys, that much
more cheer for the kids who don't
have the comforts of home, of the
family Christmas tree."
