these past few years have caused
space-harried University adminis-

able room on the campus for class-

place that has remained safely out
of their reach.
From one year's end to the next,

the second floor of 'U' Hall is al-
most undisturbed by human foot-
prints, except for occasional for-
ays to the the filing cabinets which
have encroached upon its dusty,
pottery-laden floor.
Art objects ranging in size and
from shape, from bronze medal-
lions commemorating the Oregon
Trail to life-sized casts of human
bodies, are scattered helter-skel-
ter around the room, which has
apparently assumed the status of
a haphazard storeroom.
Annual Figures
Upstairs, the seats of the gallery
are literally lined by a whole host
of animal figurines. One of these,
a sober-eyed owl, bends danger-
ously forward, as if in a pose of
rapt attention, but the numerous
busts of Lincoln have a more con-
ventional aspect.
On a table in the deserted audi-
torium lie some half-completed
letters, and outdated ph~one di-
rectory, and an unused package
of clay, all of which combine to
create the impression that activity
here has not really stopped, but
has merely been interrupted. A
steady sound of typing comes from
the rooms aljoining the audito-
rium, as if to deny the reality of its
complete remoteness and isolation.
As if also denying the idea that
the slowly deteriorating chamber
,s no longer of any practical use,
a telephone sits on the floor in the
middle of the room. Although nev-
er used, the phone is still con-
Velvet Curtains
Traces of the auditorium's for-
mer majesty can still be seen in
the plush green velvet curtains,
now just a crumpled heap in a
cardboard box, and the cracked
gilt lettering of the motto (taken
from the Ordnance of 1787 on
Education) which surmounts the
oval of the stage.
T he auditorium has been the site
of many memorable events, in-
cluding speeches by two famous
visitors to the campus-Theodore
and Matthew Arnold. Its present
function is somehow a fitting con-
clusion to its distinguished ca-
