With the advent of the New
Year, we are reminded of Mary
Carolyn Davies' beautiful poem,
entitled "A New Year." This
poem is available at the Slater
Library in a volume called
"1,000 Quotable Poems." The
poem is as follows:

A New Year

Here's a clean year,
A white year.
Reach your hand and take

You are
The builder,
And no one else can make

See what it is
That waits here,
whole and new;

It's not a year only,
But a world
For you!!

Somehow the New Year
seems very attractive when we
think of it not as just another
year, but as a world, especially
for us. Let's make this world
of 1947 bigger than that of
1946 by doing more reading.
Reading the right kind of books
helps to open up greater ave-
nues of thought, at the same
time broadening one's horizon.
The librarian extends to each
reader a very special invitation
to come to the library at every
opportunity during 1947, and
to make this new "world" the
brightest one in our own per-
sonal history by reading en-
lightening books and maga-

May we extend to each of
you our sincere wishes for a
prosperous and happy New
Year with more time than ever
for reading books and maga-
