Three Major Physical Changes
By LUCIGRACE SWITZER
Staff Writer
Following seve-ti major changes
which are planned for the nest few
years, "the University libraries
will have unquesionably one of
the most efficient library physi
cal plants to be found In any state
University or land grant college,"
said Frank Lundy, director of
University Libraries.
Three' major physical changes
are planned in the library, system.
Lundy expressed confidence that
these would be accomplished at
least within the next 20 years.
"Love Memorial Library is now
10 years old. It seats about 1,200
students In a study situation. In
that respect as a central library
it will be more or less adequate for
at least 25 years." Lundy explained.
He pointed out, however, that
Love Library bookstacks which will
hold 600,000 volumes are nearly
full.
New Shelving System
"We are planning to install a
new type of book shelving which
will double the capacity of the

additional buildings here we can
house well over a million volumes
In the present building," Lundy
said. '
He continued, "This will be ex

more books. It will cost approxi

this improvement would be paid
for out of the College of Medicine
building levy.
The third major improvement
in the library physical plant would
take shape when a new College
of Agriculture library building to
be located across the mall from
the present Food and Nutrition
Building. The building would be
approximately the center of the
development plan for the Ag Col
lege, Lundy said.
"Funds are not at this moment
in sight for this project, but the
need is obvious and urgent. At
this time 10,000 volumes from the
research collection of the College of
Agriculture are being housed in
the basement of Love Library," he
explained. "Within the present
year it is quite probable that an
other 10,000 vilumes will be moved
into storage in the central library."
Efficient Plant
"These and succeeding move
ments will Inevitably impair the
effective management of teaching
and research on Agriculture cam
pus and it is therefore our hope
that this deficiency in good library
building space can be remedied
before 1960," he added.

The other major improvement
slated for the near future, ac

facsimile techniques.
"Extensive files of micro-film
materials and micro-film readers
have been with us for nearly a
quarter of a century. We are now
to micro-cards and micro-print,"
he explained.
The micro-cards are produced by
photography and offer the reader

The film is narrated by Cocteau

cold and cruel characters. Bach

the drama.
Ticket sales for this year's Film
Society, said Judith Kaplan, Un
ion activities director, "are not
going well at all " It will cost
about $600 for the season's pro
gram, and only about $100 worth
of seats have been sold.
Rare Films
There is an attempt, said Miss
Kaplan, to bring the best of rare
films to the University at prices
students can afford. Films are
selected on the basis of reviews
in leading magazines and papers.
The second film, to be shown
March 2, is "Kind Hearts and
Coronets," an English comedy
starring Alec Guiness in eight dif
ferent roles. On March 16 "Ero

is probably more permanent than
previous micro-print cards.
'.'Using any one or all three of
these micro techniques, the re
search library will soon be able
to acquire at nominal cost vast
files of research material, her
tofore unobtainable and available
only Lt a few of the great re
search libraries," he said.
"Not enly will the University be
able to offer its scholars vastly
greater resources for research in
the very near future, but it will be
able to do so in amazingly little
building space, Lundy said.
"In mico-facsimile, a good re
search library can be housed in
files in an ordinary sized room,"
he said. "The use of the materials,
does of course involve the use of
reading machines," he added.
The library is purchasing micro
facsimile materials. On micro
film, it is buying .the New York
Times. Extensive files of Russian
historical sources are being pur
chased on micro-print and exten
sive files of early printed pro
ductions of this country are being
bought on micro-cards.
"We have also considered sub
scribing in micro-print to the com

Nations," Lundy added.
The library has several of the
reading machines.

The Outside World-
Reds Mass Forces
By DICK RALSTON
Staff Writer
Determined Nationalist air attacks on Chinese Communist ship
ping and military installations have failed to halt the threatening
buildup of Red forces in the area.
Reliable sources report the continuation of a buildup of Red forces
on the Taishan Islands, threatening nearby Nanchisan, and the be
ginning of a buildup on the Kukien province opposite the strategic
Matsu Islands. The Taishan Islands are located 110 miles north of
Formosa; the Matsu Islands 'lie about 100 miles straight west and
next to the coast.
UN Charges Communists
The United Nations Command has formally charged Communist
North Korea of violating the Korean armistice by building up its air
strength. The Feb. 5 attack on an American reconnaissance bomber
over the Yellow Sea by Communist MIGs was cited as evidence that
Red air activities in North Korea since the armistice have "mounted
from zero in increasing magnitude to a high tempo.
New French Attempt
The fourth man in 15 days to attempt to form a new French gov
ernment is given little chance of success by the political experts.
Edgar Faure, ex-premier and member of the cabinet of Mendes
France, told President Rene Coty he would see how much support
he could expect and report back as soon as possible.
House Approves Tax Cut
The House Ways and Means Committee appeared Monday to be
set to approve the Democratic proposal of a general $20-a-person
income tax cut, in spite of the vigorous opposition of the administra
tion' Treasury Secretary George M. Humphrey appeared before tha
committee behind closed doors and reportedly "violently opposed" the
measure. However, Humphrey declined to say whether the president
would veto such a bill.
Eisenhower has argued that the government's fiscal picture will,
not permit a tax cut this year, although it might be feasible next year.
