    'Bridge, Anyone?' Dear Ed1 tor

    With a. great deal of fear m my heart, I would like to under take the the task of cntlCJzing a recent l etter that appeared m the Mercury , " Monk Defends Ltbrary".

    F~rst , I would like to day that I am sure we have a very eff1cen t English department From the looks of Monk 's letter, ItS no wonder Dr. Miller has troubl e With umnterested s tudents m reqmred English courses. I am refernng to the sentence fragments that appeared in thi s c rJtlClsm. not to menuon the misspelling of "crannys" for "crannies." I too have spellmg problems, but dJ CtJonaries are punt ed for thiS purpose. Monk should vastted the Ltbrary 1

    .Second, Mr. Carls on does deserve a great deal or credi t for the trans formation that h as taken place in the library, but what o f Mr. Shaffer? I t seems, H I remember right , t hat he was respon s ible for the initia l plans and for securing the initial money for the new li-brary.

    Next. I would ltke to pomt out ano th er 1nconststency wllhtn our library. Some say that 1f you know certa1n peopl e employed there , you can have matenal xeroxed for nothmg. I wonder tf tht s 1s true? If It ts, I must not know the nght people. Now, I must agree that the library t s modern and comfortable and a good place to swdy when you can fmd r ecent penodtca ls to use. and that a qu1et atomosphere pre va1ls.

    Once when we were in the old library, I saw a girl take a maga-zine from the library with the knowledge of the person then on duty . This surely would not be happening i n the new library -would it? Maybe it would not be such a bad idea to h ave a policeman stand by the door to search us when we leave; at leas t we might be able to have mat erial to work with when we need it. Maybe we could use him in th e nooks and "crannies " to supervise our personal conduct, too, But I doubt that one would be enough to control t he " passion pit.'.

    To complete my cntlc1sm, I thmk that a set or rules should be posted. along wtth a list or fmes charged, and that all persons should ab1de by them I mtstakenly took a reference book from the library to study, thmk1ng that all that was requaed was that I have 1 t back wtthm two hours. I was wrong. as well as bemg two mtnu tes late 10 r eturmng tt (who could tell what time It was lhe way the clocks were?) and I was fm ed 25 or 30 cents. The fm e was nothmg, but I was embarrassed by the bluntness or those who worked at the c1rculauon desk.

    I tlunk that any student has the ngh t to complam when h1s grades are withhel d due to the m1 stake of someone el se, espectally when he has done all w1thm h1s power tocorrect h1s error

    Finally , let me say that our books are poorly shelved, or, per-haps, poorly reshel ved. Do we not have enough employees in our new building to do something about this? Or are they busy doi ng somethin g el se? Err---B ridge anyone?

    W M O'Dell Second F1eld L1 brary Sc1ence

    P S May I al so say that I feel tha t the student body has been "had" 1n reference to our yearbooks. Perhaps I was miSJOformed or unm-formed, but I was under the 1mpresston that when w e voted to pay for the yearbooks m our reg1strat10n fee that thiS mcluded our p1ct ure also. Well , I was sadly m1sta.ken. I d1d not have the two dollars to pay for my picture at that ume so I guess I will have to hand copi es out to all students rece1vmg
