A University coed, wearer of one of the laconic emblems, ex plained the significance of the pin-wearing fad which has swept the University of Missouri cam pus.

Library Browsing Room Will Be Furnished Soon In just six more weeks the much heralded University of Ovegan browsing room in the new library will be finished down to the most complete details of furnishings and decoration, according to informa tion released yesterday by Miss Ethyl R. Sawyer, browsing room Ji brarian. Part of the ojective in finishing the room in record time is to make it available as the scene of traditional senior commencement activities, Miss Sawyer pointed out. The tomato colored leather chairs, which were returned to the fac tory last week to be restuffed, will be restored to their places and th.a suite completed with more chairs, davenports and lamps. Additional tables are also a part of the finished scheme of furnishing. Wall decorations have not yet been determined, but the decora tion committee of the art department of the University under the di rection of Miss Brownell Frasier, professor of interior design, are con sidering woodcarvings to hang over the fireplaces at each end of tho room, as a tentative part of the plan it was understood. Only the imported Oriental rugs will fail to complement the har mony of the room. The rugs are being made in China, and aside frorni the long process of their manufacture, the national distress of t.o.€> Chinese will probably delay delivery.
