LIBRARY FINDS DECREASE
IN MISSING VOLUMES
Limited Use of Stack-room
One Cause for Decline
A late inventory of the stack rooms
of the University library shows that
fewer books, magazines, pamphlets, and
government documents have disap
peared from the shelves this year than
The first checking up show's 600 J
volumes missing this year as compared
to 683 last year. This figure does not
mean that 600 volumes will not be
found, for past years have proved that
many of the copies are returned later
in the year. Last year 380 of the i
copies were turned in.
The decrease is thought by librar
ian M. H. Douglass to be due to the
restricted use of the stack rooms and
also to the systematic canvass which
was made of the campus buildings and
residences at the close of last year.
After the spring term of this year
when the checking up of the books
began, library copies were found in 16
of the fraternity houses on the cam
pus. Some of these copies had not been
checked off by the library staff. In .
a few cases books had been charged
to professors affd had been loaned by
them to students. In this way all

CAMPUS HIGH TO HAVE
FIRST BASKETBALL TEAM
G. B. Mclntlre, Formerly of Baker, an
Experienced Man is to Coach.
The University high school expects to
have a basketball team this year for the
first time in its history, according to R.
C. Dickerson, principal. There is better
material for a team this year because
there are more older - students than ever
before, Mr. Dickerson says.
The basketball team will be coached
by George R. Melntire, physical director
at the campus high school. Mr. Mcln
tire has had a considerable amount of
experience in coaching teams, at other
high schools where he was physical di
Physical training in general will not
be neglected because of the interest in
inter-high-school sports, as often hap
pens when high schools put out athletic
teams. Mr. Dickerson says. Gymnasium
work for both boys and girls is to be
carefully kept up.
