Union Library Committee.

The following men have been appointed a committee to take charge of the library at the Harvard Union: W. C. Lane '81, P. la Rose '95, J. H. Hyde '98, W. Phillips '00, and J. G. Bradley '02.

When Mr. James H. Hyde gave the library for the new Harvard Union a short time ago, he also gave $20,000 as a fund for the purchase of books and for the maintenance of the library. Of this some four or five thousand will be needed immediately to start the library, but after that only the interest, amounting to about $800 annually, will be used in purchasing books. After the necessary books of reference and magazines have been bought, the committee purposes to pay especial attention to the collection of books of sport and novels, so that men will use the library as a place of recreation.
