As the spring approaches it grows imperatively necessary that the ventilation in the library be improved. All through the winter the air in Gore Hall has been unbearable, not so much on account of too much heat, as on account of too little ventilation. The quality of the air, if chemically tested, would no doubt arouse the solicitude of those who would seem to be so considerate of the students' eyes. As the hall has no regular facilities for ventilation, the upper windows ought to be opened for a short time at regular intervals during the day time. This may be impossible during the severe cold of winter, but surely it is feasible in the mild weather of spring.
