who recently spoke at theI

Abraries," told many inter-
s that exist between the

raries of Qur country in compari-

'They are in a pitiful state of ne-

tive remedies can only be made
r a long period of time.
The majority of people do not give
cli consideration to the material
ue of a library and its great aid

can libraries are in their pitiful

nal spirit of the people, which is
note-worthy and is made so due

South America. Nevertheless, per-!
fected means of education when sys-
tematically managed have their right-
ly deserved place in the advancement)
of a country's people, and to such a
means we must give large credit to theC
libraries. If more enterprising peo-
ple would take up the project of per-I
fecting the degenerated system of li-
braries, the betterment of the people
would be more advanced.
Travels in South America
Mr. Parker has been traveling
through South America, stopping at
most of the larger cities. He was first
sent to South America in 1918 by the
Hispanic Society of America, which
authorized him to compile a series of
handbooks on the various South Am-,
erican republics. To this project is
due the larger amount of his knowl-
edge concerning South American li-
braries. Libraries are situated at
many of the South American univer-
sities and colleges. Students there,
are at the disadvantage of not being
able to find the book offhand that
they wish to use for reference work,
nor are many of the books in a read-
able condition when they are finally'
While speaking of old manuscripts'
and ancient books with great attached
value, Mr. Parker declared "there are
not very valuable books in the li-]
braries of South America, at least I
haven't' been able to find any. The
libraries have been pretty well comb-
ed by American librarians. Yet there
are still possibilities of finding treas-a
ures. I am sure, however, that they'
will not be found in any of the public'
libraries. I happened to be looking
through some books in Lima, when II
did run across a valuable book whicht
I found lodged behind a seldom used
shelf of books, but the value of this
book was lost beyond recovery. Its1
pages and binding had been destroyed¢
by insects. Neglect was the entire.
blame for this loss."
"There are approximately 1,000,0001
books in all the libraries of South Am-
erica," Mr. Parker estimated," as coin-
pared to 50 times that amount in the<
United States alone."1
Southi Americans Read Few Rooks1
"People do not often read books in
South America, and if they did care to
read, it would perhaps, take hours be
fore they could find a book suitablet
to their fancies; for there Is no sys-
tem of cataloguing the books there as
done here at your Michigan library.,,

ing to a group of librarians from thel
