LAMONT SHUT-DOWN ATTACKED

The Mail

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

The recent announcement that Lamont Library's extended hours would be so soon withdrawn seem somewhat predetermined to the many who used the privileges last spring. Anyone who took advantage of the Sunday hours can only wonder how Lamont officials can mumble about lack of use. That the officials themselves seem uncertain whether the reason is too many students leaving debris everywhere, or too few students, or that the plan is unfair to House libraries seems to indicate someone searching for an excuse. The officials charge that the Library wasn't used enough to justify the expense seems the reverse of the true situation--the expense is small enough to justify the hours. One can sympathize with the desire of officials for a tidy library but after all Lamont is run to serve the students--not for the administrators, as currently seems to be the impression. Richard E.
