Letters In The Editor's
Vats Off To
be Class Of '44
• the. Editor:
Scveral weeks ago you publish
dod, a letter in which I challenged
14:c school spirit of the Class of
144 as against that of the Class
Saturday, (whether it were for
reasons of a personal nature or
-opt) the freshmen displayed spir
t that reveals remarkable feeling
of, unity. Because it would have
.411;:astrous effects if I were to
bolo - ,ton the relative intensities of
the spirit of the two classes by
contrast, I will evade the issue.
Put now I bow in respect for a
.section of the Penn State Spirit,
the existence of which I, a
:rtioubting Thomas," had refused
to- recognize. Hats off to the vic
J-;ong live the Class of '44.

Reader Asks Help
For Library Lounge
To the Editor:
Do the male students of Penn
State College know
. that there is a
lounge in the basement - Of the Li
brary that far exceeds the lounges
of the various theaters in town?
Do they also know that the lounge,
up until today, was bare of all
furniture? There are at least a few
students who like to smoke while
they study and a lot more who
cannot study unless they smoke. I
am in the latter class.
I went to the head librarian and
asked him if it would be all right
to put some old chairs in • the
lounge for a lot of hard-hit smok
ers who had to trudge .to the li
brary to get a two-hour book and
trudge home again because they
couldn't smoke in the library. And
the hardest part of all, get the book
back in time when they had fin
' ished. To my surprise, the head
librarian told me that this empty
room was originally intended for
a regular smoking lounge with all
the fancy furniture (etc.), but that
the shipment had been mixed up.
He,, was very nice, add he said
that if someone supplied the ash
trays, it could be used immediately
as a lounge until the furniture ar
rived. He stressed, however, that
it must be kept orderly and news
papers should not be strewn about
I appeal to student opinion and
a couple of generous fraternities
to supply some old stand ash trays
if they, the students, really want to
use the lounge. And I think they
do, for I saw a couple of poor
fellows sitting on the floor trying
to study by holding their refer
ence books in one hand and their
cigarettes in the other.
Hoping for some action,
