Last year we applauded the University's decision to proclaim officially what students have always taken as their right: a four-day Thanksgiving holiday. Now we must report, regrettably, that the proclamation never reached Lamont Library
The men who run Lamont still think Thanksgiving only lasts a day. They did not permit students to take reserve books out for the week-end. The majority who went home, then, could not study. The minority who stayed here had to check books out every three hours and return them promptly at 9 a.m. each day. The staff grumbled because it had to work full hours Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for a vastly diminished clientele. Could it be that all the arguments for keeping Cliffies out of Lamont have versed the men who run it in illogic?
