New Library Balconies
May Form Rendezvous
Stage setting for Romeo and Juliet scenes in the moonlight; a place
for smoking, and a stand for the student body presidents in their
Mussolini moods will be found as uses of the balconies of the new
library. When the curtain will rise and make possible these events
is not known. M. H. Douglass, librarian, says it will not be before
spring term.
In the meanwhile library visitors will be glad to know that bronze
plates have been put on the doors
so that they can find their way
around the main part of the li
Wooden barriers still conceal the
doors so that none shall see the
interior before the right time.
However, if the privileged find
themselves inside they will see the
entranceway of gold leaf, bronze,
and marble, illuminated with liter
ally many lights.
In the main hall between the
iron-wrought gates are two mem
orial tablets in honor of Dr. Arnold
Bennett Hall, one a quotation from
him and the other a dedication to
him. The main lobby, finished now
with display shelves and desks,
with only the floors missing, con

a worker will be on the job to di
rect visitors.
For Mr. Douglass and his secre

rooms. There is also a staff room
for meetings and recreation, with
an. adjoining kitchenette.
“Room 30," too, has been glori
fied. Large shelf space is provid

believe in students choosing their
own. This room is across the hall
from the upper division room and
is entered through turnstiles. Off
this room is found the Oregon
collection with dice-shaped light
ing fixtures and on the other side
the rare book collection.

Instructor Describes
WPA Course on China
"Too long have we neglected the East of Asia,” stated Elizabeth
Von Stapp in her outline of the course, "Traveler's Introduction to
Chinese Civilization," which is now being offered by the general ex
tension divisions of the University in cooperation with W'l’A Twenty
students have enrolled in this course, which was completed the first of
the year.
"Strangely, we have seemed to assume," she continued, "that the
history of the West Includes all that is important. To Greece and
Rome, which loom large in our thoughts, of civilization, we give gen
erously of our admiration and in
spect. But we almost completely
ignore that old and mellow race
the Chinese. True, China is the
la nil of famine and coolie bearers,
but it is also the land of scholars
and of courtesy.”
The aim of the course, outlined
by Miss Von Stapp. is to provide
an introduction to the art and cul
ture of the Chinese. The course is
intended to appeal to the uninitiat
ed general reader in order to pro
vide him with a better understand

behalf of all those who took part
