Two Students to Do Book-Running

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The problem of getting books back to Lamont on time in the morning and cutting down on library fines has prompted two Lowell House Juniors to go into a new business: book-running.

Last Friday, Jay S. Lewis '51 and George M. Kurzon '51 hit upon the idea that many students might be willing to pay to have books returned on time rather than face a more expensive fine. Two days ago they put up signs in Lowell House and started their service.

According to present arrangements, a student may Call' Kurzon and Lewis in their room at any time before 12:30 a.m. on the morning they want the books delivered. He will then leave the books just inside the door of his room with the money required. The charge is ten cents per book, or three books for 25 cents. They will be picked up and taken to Lamont before 9 a.m. Expansion of the service to other Houses is due to start immediately.
