"Citadel of Democracy"
"To me the library is the very
citadel of democracy," the chan
cellor said. It was no accident,
he declared, that Hitler's first
move when he came into power
was to destroy books. By destroy
ing books, he said, Hitler was
separating the Germans from
their past and thus depriving
them of any access to past knowl
edge in forming opinions. Direc
tor Lundy traced the development
of the library from the time it
was just an idea being worked
out by a group of faculty mem
bers in 1932 and paid tribute to
the foresight of the planning com
mittee. He added, "The gauge of
a university of the first rank is
Necessary to Civilization ,
Dean Oldfathcr pointed out that

standards of excellence which
mankind has achieved," he said.

platform were: C. Y. Thompson,
West Point, member of the Board
of Regents; J. L. Welch, Omaha,
