To the Editor of the CRIMSON:

Your editorial of yesterday on the ventilation of Widener Library strikes me as being very pertinent at this time when so many are forced to spend most of the day there reviewing for examinations. It seems that the unpleasantness which the lack of air has caused in the last few years would suggest to the authorities that it is about time to do something about the fabulous ventilating system. If it is impossible to use it under the present conditions, surely something could be done to change the mechanism so that it would be of more use than it is in its present ineffective state.

Proper ventilation and ability to study are so closely allied that considerable expenditure would be justified in trying to rectify the unfortunate conditions in the library. The number of protests is an ample proof that the present conditions are not only unsatisfactory, but also extremely annoying. In a University that has the largest endowment in the country there surely should be sufficient funds somewhere to provide for some relief from this highly annoying feature of the library. Preparation for examinations is unpleasant enough without the addition of totally unnecessary hindrances. F. T. Leahy, Jr. '31.
