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. "With the total occupancy at full capacity of all the services and facilities of the Love Memorial Li brary, and with the erection and branch libraries in Law, Medicine end Agriculture, the University will have, unquestionably one of I Vol. 55, No. 51 Lentz Flute-Piano Program Set Tonight Donald Lentz, professor of wood wind instruments and conductor of University Band, and his wife Velma will present a flute-piano concert at 8 p.m. Tuesday in How ell Memorial Theater.

The sister marries, but her young the most efficient library physical plants to be found in any state university of land grant college," Lundy said. The other major improvement slated for the near future, ac cording to Lundy, is a new kind of research library utilizing micro- 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 a complete book on one- two or three cards of three by five inch size or approximately the size of an ordinary file card. Micro-Film Micro print is produced by Juno Graduates AU students who expect to re ceive bachelors, advanced de grees or teaching certificates at the close of the current semes ter should apply for these de grees by March 10, if they have not already done so.

Kendall, instructor of a Univer sity class in parliamentary pro husband dies before the honey moon, so she against isolates her self with her brother. She jeal ously prevents him from falling in love with any other girl and the two finally end tragically. The film is narrated by Cocteau himself in icy tones befitting the cold and cruel characters. Bach and Vivakfr music - accompanies 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 ica," a German movie of the life of Beethoven, will be shown with music played by the Vienna Phil harmonic. Famous U.S. Film One of America's most famous printing presses with India ink on rag paper and according to Lundy, 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 plete publications of the United 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.
