Ten New Faculty Members Join Staff
The expansion and remodeling program of the campus library is fast |
approaching conclusion. Barring unforeseen interruptions, the open
house date is scheduled for October 24. An open house program in the
library at 10:30 a.m. is planned for the occasion as one of the eventj of
Homecoming Weekend. This will also mark the completion of the!
$225,000 Dana Developmental Program.
On that date students will be able to fully enjoy the completed ex
tension which is equipped with new furnishings. The extension has
doubled the floor space to 14,000 square feet.
A reserve reading room has been added in the basement tj facilitate
reserve reading and house reserve books. Three new levels of stacks,
equipped with individual study desks, will provide room for 65,000 ne*v
books. This addition more than doubles the current number of books.
The former periodical reading room and a new supplemental extension
are being converted into combination rare book and Quaker rooms.
The present reading room will be converted intj dual periodical
rooms. A new reading room will replace the converted one. In order tj
process and care for the increased volume of books, a work room for the
staff has been added. In addition, return shelves will be provided fo;
ihe return of books taken from shelves for reading in the library. It is
hoped that this will reduce the number of misplaced books .
Carpeting will reduce any sound greatly and air-conditioning will
make summer studying more comfortable. The reduction of sound and
the year-round control of temperature along with new furnishings,
which will include lounge chairs in the periodical room and desk sets
distributed throughout the library, will greatly aid in creating an atmos
phere conducive to studying.
The staff of the library has also increased with the addition of Mrs.
A. Schnell, cataloger; Mrs. Bowie, part-time assistant; and Dr. Ralp'i
Fritz who will serve as part-time consultant.
With the additions to the staff and the expansion of facilities and
space, the serving capacity of the library increases greatly. The library
staff, headed by Mrs. Mathis, expresses readiness to assist students.
The administration and the library staff have worked tirelessly to
provide students with a resourceful library. All that remains is for the
students to use it.

The Guilford defense, which is
quickly gaining respect throughout
the area, set up two touchdowns by
causing WCC to fumble on its
own four and six-vard lines. Earnie
