Plans For Laurel
Are Made By Staff
The LAUREL staff has begun
definite work on the college an
nual. The plans, which have never
been used before, are not to be
revealed until The LAUREL comes
out. There is something entirely
new and different on every page,
according to Ed Spangler, editor.
The printer, who recently talked
over the plans with the staff, said
he thinks that their plans will be
copied by larger institutions soon.
With the cooperation of the
students, the staff plans to get
out The LAUREL earlier this
year, probably the first week in
May. About 400 copies have al
ready been reserved and more
subscriptions are expected.
Pageant And Parties
From the Carnegie grant the
Montague library has received
many new books. Among these
are a few I. R. C. books, which
will be found very beneficial to
many of the students. They stress
peace, a much discussed and de
bated subject at the present time.
Some of the I. R. C. books receiv
ed since November 1, 1937, are:
“Raw Materials in Peace and
War,” by Eugene Staley; “Atlas
of Empire,” by J. F. Harrabin;
and “Empire in the World,” by
Sir Arthur Wilbert.
Other books which have re
cently been added to the library
collection are: “Popular Libraries
of the World,” by A. E. Bost-
wick; “Craft Work,” by E. S.
Cave; and “The Living Voice,”
by J. C. Wilcox.
