During these balmy Spring afternoons when all nature contrives to make it hard to study, another condition, natural enough to be sure, but unlike the others, subject to human control, adds to the students' difficulties. The nice green grass in the Yard, and its general park-like appearance attract throngs of happy children to gambol and frolic up and down the steps of Widener and all about the buildings, filling the air with their merry shouts and laughter. Nothing is more truly delightful than the spontaneous merriment of children, but innocent and pleasing as it may be, a library where students are busily preparing for examinations is not the place for it. There is no need to emphasize the desirability of quiet in the Library. A word from one of the attendants or Yard policemen will suffice to secure it provided that the word is spoken.
