Leading Research Libraries
Develop Book Exehanoe Plan

The libraries of the University
of Michigan will cooperate with
other leading research libraries in
the nation in a newly developed
plan to insure fuller coverage of
books in specialized fields so as to
meet more completely the particu-
lar needs of scholars.
"The Farmington Plan," as it
is known, is designed to make
available in the United States all
works of research value published
in foreign countries. It is the in-
tention of the libraries participat-
ing to apportion among them-
selves the responsibility for ob-
SLID Party
To Celebrate
The Student League for Indus-
trial Democracy will sponsor a
"week-end coming-out party" Sat-
urday and Sunday to inaugurate
its renewed active role on campus
after a lapse of over 12 years.
A "potato pancake party" will
be held at 8 p.m. Saturday at 713
S. Division Street. Refreshments
and games will be offered. All stu-
dents interested in SLID have been
invitednto attend, meet the mem-
be~rs and find out about the or-
ganization by Bill Gamzon, pub-
licity chairman of the group.
Aaron Levenstein, noted econo-
mist, will speak to the group on
"Labor Looks to the Future" at
3 p.m. Sunday in the Union. A dis-
cussion period will follow the talk.
The Student League for Indus-
trial Democracy, which was active
on campus until 1935, seeks to en-
courage cooperatives, democratic
public control and ownership of
social legislation, civil rights, edu-
cation and international organiza-
tion, and aims at the preservation
and fulfillment of the democratic
way of life, according to Gamzon.
"The SLID is not a political
party, affiliated with any political
party or supporter of any politi-
cal party," Gamzon said. "We are
trying to make democracy 'a living
reality in every aspect and reach
of our common life', and for these
reasons we do not allow totali-
tarians such as racists, fascists or
communists to join our organiza-
tion," he added.

taining books in specific fields;
each library will then be free to
draw on the stocks of any others
in the association through the
agency of inter-library loans.
50 Libraries Participate
The action was taken in Wash-
ington, D.C., by a meeting of rep-
resentatives of the nation's 50
largest research libraries. Dele-
gates from university, college, spe-
cial and certain public libraries
with research interests partici-
At present the Farmington Plan
is in its tentative stages. There-
fore, only books will be obtained
which are in the Latin alphabet
and the proponents of the plan
are limiting the present program
to the countries of Sweden, France
and Switzerland as areas for ob-
taining books. Only books printed
after January 1, 1948 will be ac-
Outline of Plan
According to W. G. Rice, Direc-
tor of the General Library, the
process will work like this.:
Each participating library will
be given a list of several hundred
fields from which it will select
several in which to commit itself
to obtain all pertinent works. The
number of fields will depend on
the expenditures each library is in
a position to make.
After the options ,have been
made, a committee will designate
book dealers in foreign countries
who will purchase all important
books and send them to their
client libraries in this country.
Once the books are in the hands of
a research library their titles will
be cataloged and reported to The
Library of Congress in Washing-
ton. Here titles will be filed in a
union catalog which will then
show the holdings of all the asso-
ciating libraries.
The procurement of books in any
field will not be an exclusive ac-
tivity of the library specializing in
that field. Libraries will be per-
mitted to buy books in any field
they wish but much duplication
among libraries will be avoided by
each library taking advantage of
the' extensive collections of the
others. In addition to eliminating
a good deal of duplication, it is
hoped that the action will
strengthen the entire library sys-
tem, Rice said.

May Day History Dances By,
Soviets Refuise To .Let t Diej


Today is May Day, a day as-
sociated with dancing and merry-
making and May Poles.
According to the book, "Anni-
versaries and Holidays," some au-
thorities carry back the origin of
May Day to the Druids. Others
say that it originated with the
old Roman flower festival, which
fell within the period sacred to
Flora, goddess of flowers, when
flower dances and processions were
In early England, May Day was
considered one of the most im-
(Contiiucc front Page 1)

portant festivals of the year, but,
as in the case of the Twelfth-
night revels, it became so wild
that the Puritans banned it.
In the United States a damper
was put on May Day by an early
New England governor who cut
down the Maypole after the col-
onists celebrated the day in the
English fashion.
Probably one of the biggest May
Day celebrations today will take
place in Moscow where the tra-
ditional p a r a d e through Red
Square emphasizing national de-
fense will be held. The Soviets
plan to combine politics with fes-
tivity by decorating the city with
portraits of Russian heroes in ad-
dition to having spring bazaars
with colorful booths and outdoor
folk dancing and ensemble sing-
In Ann Arbor, nothing unusual
will happen concerning May Day,
and the only extra noise to be
expected is the riveting at the

Now the driver, on the other side
of the column, is at bat. With a
pneumatic rivetinghammer, which
looks something like an overgrown
hand fire extinguisher, he forges
a new head on the rivet to com-
plete the operation, all taking
considerably less than a minute.
In a few seconds the rivet is
cool and the weld, made tighter by
the contracting metal, is strong
enough to outlast a new fountain
pen. A coat of red lead to protect
them from rust covers the rivets
when they are well cooled.
Cosmopolitan Riviters
The four rivet gangs working on
the General Service Building are
cosmopolitan. One gang is from
Pittsburgh, two are from Montreal
and one is from Detroit.
H. "Smokey" Burke, a native of
Pittsburgh and an all-around iron
worker for 27 years, is foreman of
riveters. The son of an iron work-
er, Smokey started in early to learn
riveting. He has quite a few
scarred decorations about his
Irish head and face commemora-
tive of the learning process.
"You have to be brought up with
it to be a good riveter," Smokey
Of Rosie and other women riv-
eters popular during the war,
Smokey speaks politely but with-
out great admiration.
"They're all right in airplane
factories working with three-six-
teenths-inch rivets," he said, but
added that they wouldn't do in
jobs like the current one.
New Hammers
Henry Robinett, of Pittsburgh,
who has been with the company
since 1903, says that while rivet-
throwing and the four-man gang
has remained essentially the same
for as long as he can remember,
th re has been a big improvement
in riveting hammers, a process
that used to be done by hand. The
new air-driven sixteen - pound
hiaminer is a lot easier to handle
than the bulky oldstyle models, he
A suspicion that deadly-accur-
ate rivet-throwers might be good
baseball pitchers was thwarted by
Mr. Robinett, who has seen
enough of them to know. Remem-
bering only a few riveters who have
played much baseball or even
pitched horseshoes, he indicated
that it was quite a different story
for riveters on the diamond.
"A lot of them couldn't catch a
balloon out there," he said.s _.
