year for books. During the 1953
1955 biennium the library received
$125,000 for this purpose.
The increase will provide $165,
000 per year during the next two
years, the amount originally rec

RISE IN PRICES
Dr. Horn explained while the
sum eems like a lot,- the money
had to be distributed over a wide
field. Also recently the book pric

publishing has increased, especiall

As the departments require
more specialized books, the prices
of these books increase. As the
size of the library increases, the
expense of cataloguing the books j
grows. ' j
