Much criticism was heard on
the campus last week, and justly
so, over the library being closed
last Wednesday. This has got
ten to be too common a practise.
Every meeting of the board of
trustees, every holiday and al
most every special occasion finds
the University's greatest asset
closed to the students.
The University has gotten to
be too large an institution .for
such a custom. Regardless of I
how important the occasion there
are always some who want to
work in there. Many a man,
who has special research work to
do, plans 'his numerous duties
and allows just the exact amount
of time he needs to complete the
.work, goes: on his way, only. toi

Just at this time we are pre
paring for three inter-collegiate
debates. The men sacrifice their
time only to be disappointed
when they seek to enter the
storehouse of knowledge." It
is not treating the men right and
it is not treating the University
There are many men on the
campus who would be only too
glad to sacrifice their time in
order to make a dollar or so extra
by-looking after the library when
the regular librarians can not be
on the job. Surely the Univer
sity can afford to keep the library,

COED ARTICLE COMMENT
In another column of this issue
is an article in 'reply-to a recent
editorial that appeared in the
It gives the editor pleasure to
publish it because there are al
ways two sides to every ques
tion. This one is rather pecul
iar in that it has three sides.
Now what . have the University,
authorities to say on the subject
We will no.t enter into a dis
cussion, on the pros and cons of
coeducation. The University and
the state have decreed that the
institution be coeducational and
we accept it as such. Now it is
up -to us all to make the existing
conditions what they should be
and draw the integral parts into
a homogeneous student body.
As one of the coeds says; part
of the trouble is with the Univer
sity, part with the coeds and
part with t he student body. Let
each try to do his part and all
work for the common good of
the University to make it one of~
the greatest institutions of learn
ing ini the South.
