There appears at present to be no likelihood that the College Library will be open evenings during the reading and examination periods. When questioned last night, R. P. Blake, professor of History and director of the Library, denied emphatically that there had been any reconsideration of the original decision to close the building during the evenings.
Agitation for the opening of the reading room has been carried on by a student committee under the direction of the Liberal Club and the Student League, but with no results as yet. The closing of the Library at night was decided upon by University officials as the only alternative to salary cuts. Any action reversing the decision, Blake stated last night, would have to be taken by the faculty, and such action is considered unlikely.
