f HAT THEY THINK
PROFESSORS AND STUDENTS ON
REMOVAL OF NEWSPAPERS.
General Disapproval of the Board's
Action Librarian Jewett
"Comment on the action or the
Library Board in removing tho news
papers from the Library reading room
Has been very general on the campus
for tho past two days. Opinions have
been -freely expressed on the matter
rind: the balance of sentiment seems to'
condpihn- the action of tho Board.
NFeellng that the opinion of represent
tatlvo University professors and stu
dents might bo of interest to Nebras
kan 'readers- several interviews wero
socufed with, tho following results:
"It is an important circumstance,
indeed," said tWhead professor of ono
department, "if access lo the dally
papers 1b denied to the students of
the University. Whether the Library
reading room or the room of the State
Historical Society is tho proper place
for these periodicals Is a question, but
in no way should access to them by
the Btudents be barred."
Another professor said, "There are
courses given by our department
which requiro the reading of the dally
papers and any action which hinders
Oiv prevents the students taking these
courses to them will be a soriouB nan
ilicapoth to the students, and to us."
SaTdTa Sehioi', "Yes, they, tell us we
can read them in tho Historical room
but who wants to run down there
Jvery time he feels llkd reading a paper?-
And, too, at the hours when.
onocan best spare tho time for read
ing tho daHies, early in tho morning
and' immediately after lunch and dln
nor, tho Historical Library is closod.
A. third reason why I am opposed to
tho change is that tho accommodations
in the Historical rooms aro so crowd
ed "that a man doesn't stand ono show
in ten of getting tho Lincoln papers
when ho goes down there."
A co-ed responded as follows: "But,
how am I tqgot the home news if
they take away tho papers? Does
every student bavo to subscribe for
her own paper? I just wish I wore tho
. Librarian Jewott is inclined to smile
utrthe protests that have como to his
ears. "The chief trouble lies in tho
iact that most people have a'mlscon
coptlon of tho truo-inir-pose of a Uni
versity library," said ho when the mat?
tor was brought to his attention. "The
TeadlngToom Is for reference purposes
;Bololy. Students are not supposed to
come to tho Library for any reason
except to uso tho references to bo
found on tho shelves. Wo realize that
.betwdeh classes 'in the daytime tlioro
is sbmo roason for using tho room
for. general study since wo have no
dormitories and the rooms of tho stu
dents, are "widely scattored, but In tho
evening there Js not even this excuse,
"Students', are not supposed" to bring
toxt books into' the , reading room,

libraries to display the daily papors," j
continued tho Librarlnn. "Newspapers
are in no sense literature, nor do" they
give tho fair and impartial survey oT
curront events to bo found in the week
ly and monthly periodicals devoted to
tho purpose The value of a local
paper is in no -wise disputed, but the
Library Board cannot see that it is
their business to provide them."
When questioned regarding the. uso
of the papers that have been coming
to the Library, Mr. Jewett said, "Until
tho subscriptions that wo have now
shall expire tho papers will go to the
Rhetoric department for the class in
Journalism. After that no papers will
bo taken without being charged diroct
to tho department of Rhetoric. Any
other department could obtaj)i papers
in the same way if it so desired.- Tho
Library Board has not enough money
to consistently furnish papers to the
roading room, oven if it wore desirable
from any other standpoint. It is true
that a very small percentage "of the
papors received have been donated,
but this has not been general enough
for any practical benefit."
