Legislator Investigates Riot
In Law Quad
Tucked away on the tenth floor
of the law library is a room no one
uses-in fact, it is opened only sev-
eral times during the year, and
then for cleaning.
Here is preserved intact the for-
mer library of Law Quad donor,
William Cook. The velvet is fading
on some of the chairs and a few
wicker seats have given out, but,
essentially, the room remains the
same as when the Law Library
was opened in 1931.
A CRYSTAL chandelier hangs
from the ceiling, ornate wood car-
vings decorate the paneled walls
and books,bearing little sign of
usage, are cased on all four sides
of the room.
The dusty quietness of the
Cook Room presents a unique
contrast to the busy typing
rooms found elsewhere in the
building and to the bright, busy
general reading room.
In fact, the only place where the
room's quietness is matched is in
the stacks which house the li-
brary's 230,000 books. The number
of books is constantly increasing
because the library acquires ap-
proximately 8,000 new volumes
Nearly all of Cook's former pos-
sessions which the Law Quad now
owns are kept within the room.
However, a pair of gold scissors,
that used tO lie on Cook's massive
desk, are kept in the library safe.
Although construction of the
Law Quad was begun one year be-
fore Cook's death in 1930, he never
come to see it nor the dormitory
which he built in memory of his
mother, Martha Cook. The phil-
anthropist said that he would pre-
fer to visualize his buildings as
perfect rather than to see them in
their actual form.
Korean YMCA Director
Hits Truce Compromise
"If we compromise in the pre-
sent Korean truce talks, it will be
a shameful betrayal of trust to the
democracies of the Far East,"'
George A. Fitch, former Interna-
tional Field Director of the YMCA
in Korea, said.
Fitch, who is visiting his son in
Ann Arbor, has just returned from
Korea and a tour of the Far
HE BECAME well acquainted
with the Korean people and their
leaders in the two periods-1947
to 1949 and 1951 to 1952, when he
was in the war-torn country. He
said the South Koreans are re-
sentful over the present cease fire
"If we trust the Communist pro-
mises, the Far Eastern peoples will
lose their faith in us," he stated.
On the issue of the repatria-
tion of prisoners of war, a major
stumbling block at the peace
tables of Panmunjom, the YM-
CA, director voiced a vehement
protest against the Communists'
"If the UN goes back on its pro-
mise to the North Korean captives,
it will be an act of treachery," he
According to Fitch, 130,000 leaf-
lets were dropped by UN planes
promising the North Korean sol-
diers they would not have to re-
turn to Communist held territory
if they surrendered.
