Are you acquainted with your library? If so
you probably know that the Benson Library orig
inally occupiel the cast end of Taylor Hall, and
that in 1929 Dr. A. B. Hunter sold his valuable
Incanabula to the University of Xorth Carolina
library, the proceeds of which made possible the
construction of the Xew Benson Library.
Our library now contains over 12,400 volumes
and 70 current magazines and periodicals. More
than .‘525 new volumes, mostly reference books,
have bet'n added since last September.
Congratulations are due ^liss Pearl A. Snod

her assistant, for making our library one of which

ST. AUGUSTINE’S AT CHRISTMASTIDE
An attempt is made at St. Augustine’s to make
Christmastido a Christian and a family festival,
and there is evidence that the consistent eiTort
over the years has met with ever increasing suc
cess. The central event of Christmas Day was
the Choral Communion Service at nine in the
morning. On Christmas Eve the annual presenta
tion of the Xativity Scene took place in Taylor
Hall. The X^ativity Scene was arranged and
adapted years ago by !Miss Eliza Baker, a mem
ber of our staff, since retired. Miss Baker was
present at this year’s renewal, which was in
charge of IMiss ^lary E. .Tohnstou.
The Sunday before Christmas was nuirked by
the Candlelight Christmas Carol Service, pre
sented in the chapel by the Choral Club, luuler
the direction of Prof. L. T. Caldwell. Promptly
at 4::50 p. m. menvbers of the club lit the candles
])laced throughout the chancel and nave, and the
service Ix'gan. Traditional carols from many
lands were intersper.-jed with appropriate choral
works of Bach, Handel, Haydn, Praetorius and
Daniels. The audience joined in several hymns.
One feature of the program was a rendition by a
quartet of young men of the spiritual, “Wasn’t
that a mighty day!’’ The offering at this and
the Chri.stmas service was for the Tuttle Com-
nuinifv C'enter and the Inter-racial Commission.
Visiting sj>eakers at rwent mid-week assem
blies includecl Vici>-dean Houston of the Howard
ITniversity Law School; Rev. George A. Fisher,
rector of St. Ambrose’s Church, of this city; Mr.
II. L. Trigg, of the Xorth Carolina Department
