Students and faculty have ex-

too slow book withdrawal processes,

conditions of library stacks.

THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI has abolished all class cuts,!
according to The Mississippian, campus newspaper.
The school, which previously allowed cutting classes as long as it
was not "excessive" has passed a new ruling which requires anyone
missing class to present a "legal excuse."
Individual instructors may not authorize "bolts" and any classes
missed will be taken into consideration when final grades are deter-

Everyone is not permitted to use
the stacks because of confusion
which would result. Stack permits
are necessary for entering the
stacks, and must be shown when
users of the stacks withdraw books.
With the completion of the Un-
dergrad Library next September
and the origin of a freshman li-
brary orientation program, it may
be feasible to open the General1

Stack workers read the slip, fill

If books are for use within the

The General Library, like most
large research libraries, has not
been able to take an inventory in
many years because of the time
and the expense involved.
THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO Daily reports that the silent
record in the student union juke box has been removed.
Only one-half of one per cent of the students interviewed in an
all-campus poll appreciated the silence. "The poll also claims that
silence 'is out of keeping with the riotous environment of the grill.'"
University of Colorado students do appreciate rock 'n roll, the
report mentioned. It is also noted that the silent record lost money
during the time it remained in the juke box to the tune of five cents
