U" Libraries Hold
Two Million Books

Color Leads Television
Advances in Boom Year

University students can use an
extensive library system.
There are 2,055,139 volumes in
31 different libraries around the
campus, excluding the Clements
and Law libraries. Other libraries
include: business administration,
engineering, transportation, Lane
Hall and dentistry.
The center of the vast system
is the General Library, where there
are more than one million books.
Books are bought outright, ex-
changed with other libraries or
universities by means of their own
university printers, sent by pub-
lishers, or received as gifts from
private library collections.
Funds Set Aside
Financing is done by each col-
lege within the University. There
is a fund laid aside for this pur-
pose, and a special book selection
committee decides on the books
The order department then
takes over by searching in records
and the card catalogue to see if
books ordered are already in Uni-
versity libraries. They also decide
where to order books and from
which publisher to buy.
When books arrive, they are
cataloged, bound again if they are

in poor condition, and then placed
in the stacks. Stacks are opened to
students with special permission
which includes a note from the
teacher who requires research,
graduates, and faculty.
The libraries employ approxi-
mately 160 workers in jobs such
as cataloguers,,binders, reception-
ists and stacks workers, in addi-
tion to students who.do these jobs
part time.
Additional Services Available
Other services are also offered.
Microfilm, microcards and prints,
and a photo-duplication service
are available in the General
Library, There are also a large
amount of maps and charts.
Clements Library has one of the
best collections of source material
on history of the United States
from its beginning to 1830, Fred-
rick Wagman, director of libraries,
commented. Wagman also said
that the libraries exist to serve
students, with a great opportunity
for finding material on a special
topic that holds great interest to
the individual.
An addition is being planned to
the system with a new undergrad-
uate library to be completed early*
in 1958. The new library will have
open stacks and a larger capacity
for studying.

finally recognized television andC
are now allowing their talent to
appear freely on TV.
Even though television is nowi
at its highest level, the televisiont
industry is constantly spending
more time and money looking to-
wards the future.
The biggest single advancement'
of the next year will be the prog-
ress made with respect to color
television. With the manufactur-
ers reducing the price of the colorE
sets and the networks planning
more tinted shows, color televisionj
will make its biggest jump in 1956.'
CBS and NBC are eachplanning9
to transmit approximately eighty
hours of network color shows a,
month, which is more than twice
the presentamount. And by Ap-
ril, NBC's local Chicago outlet
(WNBQ) will start a trend in lo-;
cal color-TV by telecasting all of
its local shows in color.I
The climax of television prog-
ress in the next year will be the
important part that television will
play in the Presidential elections1

A NUMBER .of new comedies
have reached the Broadway scenea
and every one of them has pro-x
duced some exceptional perform-t
ances. End Bagnold's "The Chalk
Garden" is a witty, delicate study
of a family of eccentrics and, be-r
sides being a creditable work inF
itself, it is responsible for the high-
ly successful debut of Irish act-
ress Siobhan McKenna in this
country, playing a homicidal gov-r
Perhaps the wildest and fun-
niest comedy to come to Newt
York in years is Ira Levin's "Nor
Time for Sergeants," a riotous tale
of a well-meaning hillbilly who
turns the army on its collectiver
ear. Andy Griffith, hitherto a
fairly well-known monologuist, has
plummeted to stardom with his
whacky portrayal of the weirdc
young soldier, and the productionc
itself has been done with greatf
George Axelrod, author of "TheC
Seven Year Itch," has authored ar
fast and furious Hollywood story
titled ""Will Success Spoil Rock
Hunter?" that is enjoying excel-a
lent attendance.
FINALLY, TWO more average
comedies, "The Desk Set" and
"Janus" are enjoying fairly suc-
cessful runs. The first owes mostx
of its popularity to the perform-
ance of Shirley Booth as an of-
fice worker combating an elec-f
tronic brain that threatens to drivev
her out of position.t
"Janus" is a standard sex farce,E
barely distinguishable from' prev-
ious Broadway offerings but the
delightful acting of Claude Daugh-
in, Robert Preston, and Margareta
Sullivan as the eternal triangler
are enough to keep it going and to
make it a pleasant divertisement.
Of course last year's hits are
still enjoying top positions onr
Broadway and, happily, the ticketx
situation for these has somewhatr
alleviated, although the Christmas
rush is already on. For those who
have the chance this coming va-

cation, Broadway offers everythingf
the theatre should.I

ed Brecht's "The Good Woman of
Setzuan" and premiered a play
by LS&A senior Russ Brown, "The
Worlds of Tommy Albright." This
is in accord with the policy of pre-
senting original and experimental
dramas, a highly commenoable
plan. Unfortunately, the former
was highly discursive and its mor-
alistic theme was unsatisfactory as
a drama. The latter, although
uneven in performance, treated
a manifestation of violent juvenile
delinquency in an intelligent man-
ner. Its content provided great
audience appeal, no doubt due to
the empathetic nature of the plot
