The study table in Room 3, Shack No. 1, Barrett's trunk is under it. The table was the best and largest table in either shack. Someone built or otherwise procured it in previous years. It wasn't in our room when school opened in the fall of 1922. However, Mitch had known about it, having seen and admired it the previous year. Having arrived on campus early in the fall on account of early football practice, and knowing where this table was located in one of the dormitories, as soon as he arrived he instructed a couple of wouldbe Freshmen to assist him in moving it into our room 3, Shack No. 1, in exchange for the dinky 2-1/2 X 3-1/2 foot table common to all shack rooms. Drafting boards on the table were being used by Barret and Allen at time this picture was taken.
