1. CASPER PASTORAL LETTER
Library staff will doubtless be pleased to note that in his
eighth and final summer letter to Stanford alumni (also known
as the "pastoral" letter), President Casper remarked "In the
last year, the university has continued to make a great deal
of progress. In the fall, the newly renovated and seismically
strengthened Bing Wing of Green Library (the old main
library) opened, and it has quickly regained its position as
a core part of the intellectual life of the campus."
Anyone visiting the reading rooms and the Bender room at
almost any time during the quarter, day or night, will see
ample evidence of the libraryıs popularity. How very
rewarding to all those at the Libraries, and beyond, who
worked so hard to bring the building back on line.

2. MEN AND WOMEN OF IRON SOUGHT
Do you know someone who needs a job? Conservation Treatment
is seeking men, women, and teenagers of iron-strong and strong-
willed -- to throw themselves into what may be one of the
dirtiest jobs on the peninsula. The job site is a seldom
visited library outpost, the notorious Building 160.
Windowless, stuffy, and full of atmosphere, Building 160 will
provide you with plenty of material for your next novel.
Successful candidates will haul, scour, wrap, pack, and haul
again, some three floors of books and boxes in preparation
for moving them to a new site.
Candidates must be good-natured, reliable, determined, and
possess a sense of humor. They must be fluent in English and
able to lift 40 pounds. Candidates must not be opposed to
N.B. This is a fleeting opportunity. Start date: Very Soon.
End date: Late August or when the job is done, whichever
Inquiries may be addressed to Maria Grandinette, Conservation
Treatment, 723-0394, or email@example.com.
