WHY CLOSE THE COURTS? .

a day of leisure, the courts are closed.

.onger in the evenings. And a great deal of pleasure would be de-
om such an action. There is little enough to do in the way of rec-

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LIBRARY
many of the students who are taking summer work ,are availing

country's best in the number and diversity of books it contains.
