Plans by the state architect, W.
C. Knighton, for the new addition to
the library, have been received by M.
H. Douglas, university librarian, who
expects that the contract will be let
by April 1, and that the extension
may be occupied September 1.
The new addition will hold more
than three times the number of
books in the library at the present
time, according to Mr. Douglass.
Forty-six thousand volumes are now
packed on the shelves, while the new
addition alone will easily accommo
date from 140,000 to 150,000 vol
umes. Steel racks, each holding
from 20,000 to 30,000 volumes, will
be installed in the new addition.
The addition will be built on the
west side of the library near the ce
ment tennis court ,and will be 39
feet wide and 4 8 feet long. A dis
tance of 10 or 15 feet will separate
the two sections, and they will be
connected by a passage. This will
be done to promote lighting and ven
tilating facilities, and) also for fire
protection for the new addition, as
it will contain all of the volumes ex
cept reference books.
Will Conserve Space.
The addition will have a Bmall
amount of table space, but it will be
used mainly for the book stacks.
There will be small tables, at which
a person may run through a book
rapidly. The windows may be placed
as far out as possible and the sills
used for book rests, for the purpose
of conserving space. Mr. Douglass
stated that lie had thought of this
Iilan, and would ascertain if it would
There is also a probability of an
open-air reading room on the sixth
floor, but this plan lias not had very
much consideration. Mr. Douglass
stated, however, that lie thought it
would be very useful.
The present library will be used
entirely for reference hooks and for
studying. A few more tables will be
placed where the bookcases are at
present situated, so that the library
will not bo crowded its it has been.
lift ween 5,000 and 7,000 volumes
are being added to the library each
ear, making the improvement a
necessity. When the new addition
is finished, many of the stacks in
the reading-room will be taken out,
and only the periodicals and the gen
eral reference books will be left. The
ventilation of the reading-room will

cleaner and roomier.
Mr. Douglass hopes in time to be
able to UiO the classrooms.

Developed in the newest materials

most pleasing fashions. ' These suits
will appeal to all women who appre
ciate stylish attire. The vogue for

ers, some have yokes, and some are
loosely belted or finished with a sash
and all are trimmed with fancy but
tons of quaint design and shape, the
skirts are made to effect the new
silhouette, characterized by width at
the hips and narrowness at the
ankles. The fancy cut skirt, oddly

terials, give the new suit a demi-tailored or dressy ap
pearance and in the group of smart new suits at these
prices you’ll find a vastly comprehensive choice of
all that is new in the world of fashion.
