The needles used in these ma-
chines have been breaking at the
rate of three per day early in the
semester, Margarita Anderson-
Imbert, librarian in charge of the
audio room reported. This high
rate of needle failure has de-
creased slightly, though, she said,
due to signs explaining proper
needle care which are now posted
by every machine.
Needles Expensive
The needles cost the audio room
apptoximately t w e 1 v e dollars
apiece.
The number of turntable fail-
ures at the beginning of the se-
mester is attributed to the fact
that, as they were new, the "bugs"
had to be ironed out, Mrs. Ander-
ion-Imbert added.
Selected broadcast music is
played in the control room and
transmitted to individual ear-
phones in the room on any of 13
channels designed for this pur-
pose. Users of the audio room se-
lect the desired channel by means

of a dial similar to those on a
television set.
Nine of the channels are devot-
ed to the playing of assigned music
from the music literature courses
while the remaining four are used
for the "pleasure listening" pro-
gram.
Attracting about one third of
the total audience in the audio
room, the "pleasure listening"
program was instituted so that
students lacking their own equip-
ment could listen to recordings
otherwise unavailable to them,
Mrs. Anderson-Imbert said.
She noted that over 25,000
people have used the audio room
iince it was opened on a full-time
basis last September.
Classical Music in Majority
In order to accommodate these
people, the room has a collection
of 2,300 long-playing records, and
many tapes. Emphasis of the col-
lection is classical, though there
are records of folk music and jazz
needed for music l i t e r a t u r e
classes.
In addition to the music there
are about 150 records of poetry
readings and dramas for use by
speech and English classes.
The most popular records are
those of the works of Beethoven,
Brahms, Mozart and Haydn, the
librarian noted. Among the more
popular symphonies, Toscanini's
recording of Beethoven's "Chor-
ale" symphony has been played
almost 300 times. Other records
have received similarly large cir-
culation.
Cannot Expand
Because of a low library budget
this year, no additions to the col-.
lection are planned except for spe-
cific works requested by course
instructors. No replacement pro-
gram is planned either.
As to plans for the future, Mrs.
Anderson-Imbert commented that
service could be expanded to in-
clude morning hours if there was
an increase in the budget allot-
ment.
More money would also mean
more new records and more copies
of old ones, she added. At present,
the collection is limited to, at
most, four copies of any one work,
all performances included.
There are no plans for stereo-
phonic installations, Mrs. Ander-
son-Imbert commented, though
stereophonic needles will be
stocked in order, to play any new
recordings on present apparatus.

Exhibited Here
Clements Library is featuring an
exhibit describing the explorations
of Captain Cook. The exhibit in-

yesterday began the dedication
events at the Daniel L. Quirk. Jr.
Dramatic Arts Building at East-
ern Michigan College in Ypsilanti.
John W. Gassner, Serling Pro-
fessor of Playwriting and Drama
at Yale University will give the
dedication speech at 4 p.m. this
afternoon.
The Eastern Michigan College
Players gave their first of four
performances last night of Arthur
Miller's "The Crucible."
Features Little Theater
The new $800.000 structure
features a 400-seat little theater
which has no center aisles. Access
is from two side aisles.
Rows are set several inches
farther apart than in conventional :
theaters, and special acoustic
treatment and air-conditioning
have been provided.
The proscenium opening is
flanked by two curtained side
stages, which will be used for
Shakespearean and similar types
of "into-the-audience" presenta-
tions. An elevator-operated fore-
stage just beyond the main stage
serves as an orchestra pit.
Scenery Lines Provided
Forty sets of lines for scenery
are provided and there is a 100- t
circuit switchboard. The stage
area itself is also large enough to
accommodate a 175-seat "theater-
in-the-round."
In addition to the main theater,
there is a radio-TV studio, and
rehearsal areas, stagecraft shops,
classrooms and an outdoor amphi-
theatre. The classroom wing,
which houses four classrooms and
four faculty offices, and the
theater itself are designed to par-
tially surround the outdoor ain-
phitheater.
A small studio theater has been
provided for use in experimental,
student directed productions.

FORMER 'U' DEPT. HEAD:
Marquis Appointed by MIT
To Industry Relations School

Prof. Donald G. Marquis, former
chairman of the University's psy-
chology department, has been ap-
pointed a professor in the in-
dustrial management school of the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology, Julius A. Stratton, presi-
dent of the Institute, anmounced
yesterday.

into the human side of economic
enterprise since 1937.
Management's Role Modified
In announcing the appointment,

of Industrial Management, said
that profound changes are taking
place all over the world in the de-
mands on industrial management
and in the nature of manage-
ment's responsibilities.
He added that these changes are
bringing about extensive modifica-
tions in theory and practice, which
will probably accelerate in the fu-

ture, and that the appointment
of Prof. Marquis is in line with
the desire of the Institute to give
proper emphasis to this subject.
Prof. Marquis served as the
chairman of the psychology de-
partment of Yale University and
has been on the staff of the Social
Science Research Council since
1957.

During World War II he was
director of the psychological per-
sonnel office and served in the
Office of Scientific Research and
Development of the National Re-
search Council.
Prof. Marquis has been a con-
sultant to many public and private
organizations and is a past presi-
dent of the American Psychologi-
cal Association and a member of
the National Advisory Committee
on Mental Health.
His research and publications
have been in such diverse fields
as learning, manpower utilization
and the social psychology of hu-
man behavior in organizations.
