The possibility of restrict
ing the use of the 'carrells or

students was explained to the

by Dr. Henry Baumgarten,
member of the Library Com
mittee of the Faculty Senate.
"A guard might be posted

"to stop students who have not

The opinion of Dr. Baum
garten was expressed during
a Council discussion on the
crowded library conditions re
sulting from use of library
space as "study hall."
George Peterson, Student
Council library committee
chairman, said that Dr. Frank
Lunday, library director had
told him that the use of va
cant rooms in Burnett and
Andrews Halls for study in
the afternoon and evening was
being considered.
Council second Vice-president
Jim Samples pointed out
the need for more adequate
heating and lighting plus ta
bles or large desks if the An
drews' or Burnett space was
to be utilized.
Samples also believed that
ref erence or study centers es
tablished in living areas would
be no more effective . than
present facilities unless con
ditions conducive to study
could be maintained.
"It's np to the dorm coun
selor, scholarship chairman
and tbe student himself," Sam
ples said, "to maintain quiet."
The possibility of establish
ing references or study cen
ters in each living unit had
been suggested by Peterson
as a way of reducing library
overcrowding last week,
