cient or inaccessible documents
available on a large scale, has been
added to the librairy's already
highly-rated facilities.
Six Machines
The rapidly increasing num-
ber of microfilm copies may be
viewed on six easily-operated
reading machines.
Dr. Warner G. Rice, library di-
rector, has called particular at-
tention to a complete set of micro-
film copies of English books print-
ed before 1600. The University
has the only set of positive re-
productions in the world. he said,
with the negatives deposited in
the Library of Congress.
English Works
The early English series, of
which the library is planning a
complete collection was begun af-
ter the Battle of Britain in 1945
under the auspices of the Ameri-
can Council of Learned Societies.
The project, Dr. Rice said, brought
to light a number of rare English
editions ii this country - mark-
ing the first systematic effort to
locate them.
The rapidly expanding micro-
film collections also include a
number of scientific periodicals
filmed in enemy countries during
the war.
Another set of reproductions
the American Culture Series,
brings to the student early Ameri-
can documents ranging from the
Columbus letters to works of the
year 1800.
Periodicals Too!
Early American periodicals of
years previous to 1825, usually
subject to dangerous wear and
tear in handling, are also includ-
ed among recent additions to the
University collection of films.
Doctoral dissertations and for-
eign theses on microfilm have been
of tremendous value to graduate
students, Dr. Rice said.

. Beginning today two art exhib-
its will be shown in Alumni Me-
morial Hall under the auspices
of the Museum of Art.
Entitled "American Abstract
Artists"' and "Prints by Lasansky
and the University of Iowa Group,"
the two exhibits will run until De-
cember 21 and December 23, re-
spectively.
The abstract group, made up
of 39 oil paintings circulated by
the Western Association of Art
Museum Directors and sponsored
by the American Abstract Artists
organization of New York. is il-
lustrative of the current swing to-
ward the abstract, according to
Prof. Jean Paul Slusser. director
of the Museum of Art. He cited
the Chicago Art Institute's all-
American exhibition fpr this year.
drawn entirely from abstract and
surrealist painters, as a case in
point.
Josef Albers, Peter Grippe.V
Maholy-Nagy, George L. K. Mor-
ris and I. Rice Pereigra are among
the outstanding abstract artists
,represented in the University ex-
hibit.
The Lasansky collection is
largely student paintings, with

only a few of Lasansky's own
works included. According to
Slusser. Lasansky, an Argentin-
ian. is to be classed with Stanley
Hayter among the avant-gardist
print makers of this country. His
work is distinguished by its dy-
namic design and bold use of tech-
nical devices, Slusser said.
Lasansky came to this country
several years ago on a Guggen-
heim fellowship and soon began
research among the prints at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in
New York. Now in his third year
of teaching at the University of
Iowa. he has already produced a
group of young printmakers who
have won prizes in national ex-
hibitions for the last two seasons.
Traveling Professors
Two members of the faculty of
the College of Engineering are at-
tending sessions of the American
Society of Mechanical Engineer-
ing, in Atlantic City.
They are Dr. Donald L. Katz,
professor of chemical engineering,
and Charles W. Good, professor of
mechanical engineering and as-
sistant director of the Department
of Engineering Research.
