At each recurring examination period, an abuse which has long existed becomes especially irritating. Time after time we have censured the carelessness of some students with regard to their conduct in the library. Loud talk and noisy shuffling has become with some men a positive habit. Within the last two days, certain students have been the cause of great annoyance to the readers by their careless method of work. This subject is discussed and censured twice a year regularly, but each time the abuse is revived. Such a practice cannot be too severely rebuked. The selfishness displayed is peculiarly irritating as gentlemanly reminders of the trouble caused, are of little avail. As gentlemanly measures only are allowed us, we request those who cause the disturbance to discontinue their present conduct.
