EXHIBIT OF 130 CHILDREN'S BOOKS
FROM 38 COUNTRIES TO HONOR IBY
A collection of 130 children's books from 38 coun-
tries will go on exhibit at the Library of Congress on
June 2 in honor of International Book Year, desig-
nated for 1972 by Unesco. The display, "The Wide
World of Children's Books," will be on view in the
Library's north and south galleries, First Floor, Main
Building, for an indefinite period.
The volumes on display, a small portion of the Li-
brary's growing collection of foreign children's litera-
ture, were selected by Virginia Haviland, Head of the
Library's Children's Book Section and President of
the 1972 Hans Christian Andersen Jury which annu-
ally presents awards for children's book writing and
illustration. The books on exhibit were chosen not
only for their attractiveness for display, a factor
which accounts for the large number of picture
books, but also for their intrinsic excellence and for
their relative importance as books within a national
body of literature. The winning of awards and the
inclusion of books on national "best lists" also served
as guides to ratings of distinction.
The exhibition features contemporary writing and
illustration and includes recent editions of folklore
and literary classics noted for their continuing impor-
tance and new illustration by contemporary artists.
All the books, with the exception of three, are shown
in their original languages. Among the recent books
of realism and fantasy from around the globe are
Charles Keeping's Charley, Charlotte and the Golden
Canary (London, 1967), a brilliantly-illustrated book
depicting life in the London slums; Odette de Barros
Mott's Justino, the Refugee (Sao Paulo, 1970), a
work of realistic fiction set in the underdeveloped
northeast of Brazil; Nunny Flies (Helskinki, 1969), a
fantasy adventure of four imaginary flying creatures
as told and illustrated by Oili Tanninen; Colin
Thiele's Blue Fin (Adelaide, 1969); illustrated by
Roger Haldane, a boy's tale of high adventure at sea;
and Otsuka Yiiz6s Sifho and the White Horse
(Tokyo, 1968), a legend of a Mongolian shepherd
youth. Collections of folk tales from Puerto Rico,
Czechoslovakia, the Union of Soviet Socialist Repub-
lics, Israel, India, Korea, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Tan-
zania are included in the exhibit. Among new editions
or adaptions of children's classics shown are Chil-
dren's and Household Tales of the Brothers Grimm
(Munich, 1967), a new German text prepared by Dr.
Anneliese Kocialek and embellished by the work of
an East German artist; The Silver Skaies (Amsterdam,
1965), an adaptation of Mary Mapes Dodge's Hans
Brinker; or, The Silher Skates, by Margreet Bruijn;
and The Tomte Children, by Elsa M. Beskow (Stock-
holm, 1967), a recent edition of the perennial favor-
ite first produced in 1912. The United States is repre-
sented by a selection of books by Elizabeth J.
Coatsworth, Meindert DeJong, Scott O'Dell, and
Maurice Sendak, among others.

LC ACQUIRES DREIKURS PAPERS
The Papers of Rudolf Dreikurs have recently been
added to the Library's collections in the behavioral
sciences. A psychiatrist and former student and col-
league of Alfred Adler (1870-1937), Dreikurs has
been a major force in bringing about the transfor-
mation of Adlerian psychology from an academic
subject to an actively-practiced therapeutic technique
of increasing significance and influence on the Ameri-
can scene. Adler's "individual psychology," long re-
garded as one of the three main pillars of modern
psychology along with the theories of Freud and
Jung, has in recent years shown a remarkable resur-
gence in activity, and is increasingly recognized as
having anticipated such vigorous contemporary de-
velopments as neo-Freudianism, client-centered ther-
apy, and existential psychology.
Born in Vienna in 1897, Dreikurs received his medi-
cal degree in 1923 from the University of Vienna.
During his student years, he was a close friend of
Wilhelm Reich, and knew Adler and Wilhelm Stekel.
Interested in what today would be called "com-
munity psychiatry," he joined Adler's group and con-
ducted several child guidance centers in Vienna along
the lines pioneered by Adler. In 1929, during his
early career in Vienna, he also introduced group
psychotherapy in private practice.
In 1937, Dreikurs emigrated to the United States
and settled in Chicago where, two years later-after
overcoming a language barrier and the open hostility
toward Adlerian psychology then prevailing in the
Freudian-dominated profession-he opened his first
child guidance center. Modeled on the centers first
created in Vienna, with emphasis on counseling a
family before a group of parents and teachers, the
center spawned a group of highly dedicated therapists
and counselors who are now conducting similar cen-
ters and training programs around the nation.
Dreikurs was the prime mover in creating the Alfred
Adler Institute in Chicago in 1951, serving as its Di-
rector until his retirement in 1971. From 1942 until
recent years, he also served as Professor of Psychiatry
at the Chicago Medical School.
Dreikurs' career has centered on understanding the
psychological dynamics of normal human behavior
and on developing techniques for preventing and cor-
recting disturbed and problem behavior in children
and youth. He has also been concerned, as a social
psychiatrist, with the changing nature of human
transactions in an increasingly democratic society and
its implications in child-rearing, education, and race
and sex relations. As a result, since 1946, he has
focused much of his efforts on the training of educa-
tors, school psychologists, and lay community leaders
and in recent years, he has been actively engaged in
training programs conducted around the nation, in
Europe, and in Israel, and has produced four educa-
tional television series. His major contributions in
psychology include the technique of multiple psycho-
therapy and his pioneer work in group psychother-
apy. Building on the theories of Adler, he
systematized their application, particularly by
detailing the goals of misbehavior in children, the
dynamics of the family constellation, and the tech-
niques of family counseling, and by further sharpen-
ing diagnostic techniques for elucidating a client's life
The author of more than 200 publications, includ-
ing 11 books (the latest published in 1972), scholarly
and popular articles, monographs, and reviews,
Dreikurs has also functioned as an editor, launching
the Individual Psychology Bulletin (which later
June 2, 1972
evolved into the present-day Journal of Individual
Psychology) and serving on the editorial boards of the
Humanist, Humanitas, the Individual Psychologist,
the International Journal of Social Psychiatry, and
the Journal of Existentialism.
The Dreikurs Papers comprise approximately 1,840
items. Included in the collection are drafts and type-
scripts of published books, monographs, articles, and
speeches; manuscripts of several unpublished books
and monographs; transcripts of his television series;
transcripts of counseling and therapy sessions; case
studies from classroom situations and clients; old
notebooks and correspondence in German from his
early career; lecture notes; extensive correspondence
detailing his conceptual thinking, the development of
Adlerian psychology in the United States, and his
work in Europe and Israel; foreign-language editions
of his books (German, Spanish, Greek, Italian, and
Hebrew); and miscellaneous notes, clippings, photo-
graphs, and memorabilia. The collection reflects the
breadth of his interests, ranging from group psycho-
therapy, neurosis, frigidity, impotence, childhood
schizophrenia, juvenile delinquency, and the role of
women in society, to preschool learning, religion, and
humanistic education. When processed, the papers
will be available for scholarly use in the Manuscript
Division Reading Room.
Mr. Dreikurs died Friday, May 26, at St. Joseph's
Hospital, Chicago. [Janet R. Terner]
REGIONAL LIBRARIANS SET
ATTENDANCE RECORDS AT
1972 BIENNIAL CONFERENCE
Regional librarians set an all-time high record of
attendance for biennial conferences sponsored by the
Division for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at
the Eighth Biennial Conference of Regional Librari-
ans held May 15-17 in Louisville, Ky. Forty-five of
the 51 regional libraries and 13 subregional libraries
were represented at the three-day meeting.
An additional 34 registrants from State and local
libraries, a contingent of 12 from the Library of Con-
gress, and several guest observers brought the total
registration to 110. The largest State delegation at-
tending the entire conference was an 11-member dele-
gation from West Virginia; part of a larger group, the
16-member delegation from nearby Indiana, attended
only some of the sessions; the host State of Kentucky
was represented by five registrants.
As chairman of the day, Robert S. Bray, DBPH
Chief, conducted the Monday sessions; James M.
Hahn, DBPH Assistant Chief for Reader Services con-
ducted the Tuesday sessions; and Charles Gallozzi,
DBPH Assistant Chief, who planned the conference
and served as conference chairman, led the Wednes-
day sessions. The overall theme was "Coping With
Following greetings and introductions by Mr. Bray,
Paul L. Berry, Director of the Reference Department,
Library of Congress, delivered the keynote address,
"It Is the Frost That Kills," a reference to a thought
of the Spanish philosopher, Miguel de Unamuno, that
" we die of cold, and not of darkness. It is not the
night that kills, but the frost." The speaker drew an
analogy between Unamuno's thought and the signif-
icance of the service of regional libraries for those
who might otherwise be cut off from the "warmth"
of others' thoughts in writing. In tracing the develop-
ment of regional libraries, Mr. Berry emphasized that
growth is not new to the National free library service
for the blind and physically handicapped unable to
read conventional print. He reiterated the need for
continued innovation in order to cope with future
growth of now unknown proportions, and expressed
the appreciation and thanks of the Library of Con-
gress for the important service rendered daily by the
Other highlights of the first session were a presenta-
tion on accreditation of regional and subregional li-
braries by Huesten Collingwood, Staff Associate of
the National Accreditation Council for Agencies Serv-
ing the Blind and Visually Handicapped in New York
City; a description of automated circulation systems
in regional libraries, by Donald K. Bailey, regional
librarian of Austin, Tex., Katherine Prescott, regional
librarian of Cleveland, Ohio, and Catherine Englund,
librarian of the Braille Institute of America, Inc., Los
Angeles, Calif.; and a five-year projection of the Na-
tional program by Mr. Bray. DBPH staff members
who gave reports on current activities were Lucy T.
Vash, Acting Head of the Selection Section; Ralph
Garretson, Head, Technical Section; Robert T. Ennis,
D.C. Regional Librarian; Mr. Gallozzi; Mr. Hahn; Eliz-
abeth Stroup, Head, National Collections; Mrs. Max-
ine B. Dorf, Head, Volunteer Services Section; and
Hylda Kamisar, Head, Reference and Information
Demonstrations of mechanical and electronic aids
were given at several intervals during the conference,
and included the Optacon, which rapidly converts
conventional print into tactile images for blind people
who can read the alphabet and related symbols; a
LC Information Bulletin
model of a cassette electronic duplicator; the Apollo
Laser, a closed-circuit TV magnifier for those with
low vision; a version of a projected book; and a vari-
able speech compressor.
On Tuesday morning, three DBPH staff members
made formal presentations of many new aids for
regional librarians. A working draft manual of DBPH
procedures was presented by Miss Stroup; a draft stu-
dent manual by Mr. Ennis; and a phototype of a
computer-produced union catalog by Miss Stroup and
Miss Vash. The computer-produced catalog proto-
type, which includes talking books numbered 1
through 3374, and which is described as a "building
block," provoked the greatest comment and discus-
sion. Regional librarians unanimously recommended
that DBPH give first priority to the development and
maintenance of a national center or source of infor-
mation about the location of reading materials for the
blind and physically handicapped.
A series of presentations on Tuesday afternoon
were given by staff members of the American Printing
House (APH) for the Blind with an introduction by
Finis Davis, APH Director. Carl Lappin described the
Central Catalog of Volunteer-Produced Texts for the
Blind, one of the most comprehensive catalogs extant
of the type needed by regional librarians for better,
faster service to readers. A two-hour tour of the
American Printing House followed the presentations.
On Tuesday evening, DBPH was host at a reception
and dinner honoring narrators of talking books from
the Louisville area. Frances Coleman, Kentucky
regional librarian, was mistress of ceremonies at the
dinner, also attended by several readers from the local
area. She introduced Tina Lou Wallace, APH's talking
book program director who, in turn, introduced
George Patterson, "dean" of the 24 narrators present.
He described the backgrounds of the narrators before
introducing them to the audience. Most are active in
Louisville radio and television.
On Wednesday morning regional librarians took
part in concurrent workshops on the reading needs of
children and the elderly and made recommendations
for selections to DBPH. Next, they took part in con-
current "rap" sessions and developed a list of 37 sepa-
rate recommendations to DBPH, including an
expression of thanks for a well-planned conference.
In a concluding brief session on Wednesday after-
noon, Mr. Bray summarized comments and recom-
mendations made during the conference. Included
was a recommendation that regional libraries hold
off-year multi-State conferences, initiated in 1971,
every year instead of every other year.
ISSN EXPERTS MEET IN VIENNA
Paul Vassallo, Director of the National Serials Data
Program (NSDP), attended the International Organi-
zation for Standardization Technical Committee 46
(ISO/TC46) meeting of Experts on ISSN held in the
Bundeskammer der gewerblichen Wirtschaft, Vienna,
Austria, April 24-26. Mr. Vassallo represented NSDP
in its capacity as the US. National Center for the
International Serials Data Systems (ISDS). In addi-
tion to Laurence Livingston, Council on Library Re-
sources, and James L. Wood, Chemical Abstracts,
from the United States, there were participants from
Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the
United Kingdom, Unesco, the ISO Secretariat, and
the International Center for the ISDS.
Helmut Felber convened the meeting by welcoming
the participants to Vienna on behalf of the Austrian
Standards Institute. M. D. Martin, Manager, Informa-
tion Systems, The Institution of Electrical Engineers,
London, England, was selected Chairman. Messrs.
Jack Wells, British National Bibliography, London;
Laurence Livingston, CLR; and A. L. van Wesemal,
University Library, Utrecht, The Netherlands, were
selected for the Editing Committee for the ISSN stan-
dard and manual.
The major item on the agenda was the discussion of
various drafts of the standard International Standard
Serial Numbering (ISSN). After nearly two days of
point-by-point discussion a consensus was reached on
a final draft of the ISSN which after formal reactions
from the participants will be presented for ratifica-
tion to the ISO/TC46 Plenary Session in The Hague
in late September.
The International Center of the ISDS, with head-
quarters in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, is
responsible for the administration of the assigning of
the ISSN to the national or regional centers. The
International Center, under the direction of Madame
M. Rosenbaum, also serves as the international regis-
try for the ISSN and is responsible for coordination
of efforts of the national and regional centers to
develop and maintain a uniform international system
of control over serial publications.
As the U.S. National Center, the NSDP is the sole
agency responsible for the control and assignment of
ISSN in the United States. The principle has been
established that a national center is authorized the
use of ISSN from the International Center solely for
those publications originating in the country the
center serves. An exception has been made in granting
limited authorization for the R. R. Bowker Company
June 2, 1972
to provide coverage of all titles in the Bowker Serial
Bibliography, i.e. Volumes I and II, Ulrich's Inter-
national Periodicals Directory, and Volume III,Irreg-
ular Serials and Annuals: An International Directory.
Volume III contains a combined alpha index with
ISSN for every entry in the three volumes. The USNC
is currently negotiating with the International Center
to acquire a block of ISSN to permit the numbering
of the Cumulation of New Serial Titles 1950-70, in
preparation by the Bowker Company. This was dis-
cussed at the Vienna meeting but no final conclusions

Freeman Sharp Receives -Year Pin
Freeman W. Shmp, Senior Legislative Attorney in
American Law Division of the Congressional Research
Service, recently celebrated 50 years of Federal serv-
ice. Mr. Sharp's long period of Government service
began in November 1921, and his initial appointment
to the staff of the Library of Congress dates from
February 1922. Mr. Sharp received his 50-year Fed-
eral Service Award from the Librarian in ceremonies
in the Librarian's office on May 16.
June 2, 1972
Born in the District of Columbia, Mr. Sharp at-
tended local schools and received a bachelor of arts
and a law degree from George Washington University
in 1931 and 1934, respectively. Pursuring what was
to become a life-long devotion to the study of law,
Mr. Sharp continued his education at the former Na-
tional University Law School-now incorporated into
the George Washington University Law School-
attaining the degree of Doctor of Juridical Science in
Except for a brief stint with the Department of the
Navy and lengthy military service, Mr. Sharp's entire
working career has been in the Library. After service
as a Hat Checker in the Buildings and Grounds Divi-
sion, he was appointed to the staff of the Reading
Room in 1923 and performed in several capacities
there before being transferred to the Periodical Divi-
sion in 1926. In 1935, following graduation from law
school, he became a member of the Bill Digesting
staff in what was then the Legislative Reference Serv-
ice. In 1940, he was called to active duty with the
U.S. Army and served in the European Theatre.
Beginning his military duties as a 2nd Lieutenant, Mr.
Sharp had attained the rank of Major at the time of
his discharge in 1947. He received the Army Com-
mendation Ribbon with Oak Leaf Cluster, and his
campaign ribbons bear two Battle Stars.
Returning to the Library as a Legal Digester in the
old Federal Law Section of the American Law Divi-
sion in 1947, Mr. Sharp was promoted in 1949 to
Legal Analyst. Over the years, he has been promoted
to successively more responsible positions, and was
appointed to his present position in 1956. He has
served as Acting Chief of the division on several occa-
sions in recent years.
Mr. Sharp is the author of numerous studies and
reports that have appeared in a variety of congres-
sional publications and is a member of the bars of the
U.S. Supreme Court, the District of Columbia, and
the State of Maryland. He is a member of the Federal
Bar Association and served in that group's National
Council for about six years beginning in 1962. In
addition to his many professional activities, Mr. Sharp
has served as Director of the Prince Georges County
Association for Retarded Children and Vice President
of the Maryland Society for Mentally Retarded Chil-
Grover C. Batts, Manuscript Librarian in the Manu-
script Division, was presented a 20-year Federal Serv-
ice Award pin on April 7 by Roy P. Basler, Chief of
the division. Mr. Batts joined the Library of Congress
in April 1957 as Exchange Accessioner in the
Exchange and Gift Division and was promoted to the
position of Manuscripts Assistant-Trainee in the
Manuscript Division later that year and to the posi-
tion of Manuscript Assistant in July 1958. Since Sep-
tember 1964, he has been Manuscript Librarian.
Before coming to the Library, he served with the
United States Army from 1942 to 1945, and was an
examiner in the Public Housing Administration in
One of Mr. Batts' responsibilities is the planning
and mounting of exhibits of manuscripts in the divi-

Information Bulletin as the contributor of interesting
and informative notes announcing and describing
manuscript materials currently on exhibit. Many
exhibits are embellished with medallions from his
George L. Powell, an LC employee for over 26
years, retired on May 31. A Steward in the Buildings
Management Office of the Administrative Depart-
ment, Mr. Powell has well known for the excellent
coffee he prepared for receptions and meetings held
at the Library. This special recipe remains a mystery
to his LC admirers.
Mr. Powell's duties have included the supervision of
physical arrangements for all special meetings, presen-
tations, and other public events in the Library. The
Whittall Pavilion, where he could most often be
found, and its collections of silver and other treasures
were entrusted to his care.
A native of Garland, N.C., Mr. Powell came to
Washington, D.C., in 1941 and was first employed by
F. J. Kane as a houseman and chauffeur and then by
the Quartermasters Depot in Alexandria, Va. On
December 16, 1942, Mr. Powell joined the Labor
Force at the Library of Congress and remained there
until 1943 when he began his military service with
the US. Army. While in the Army, Mr. Powell had a
nine-month tour of duty in Northern Ireland, and
served in Cambridge, England, and in France. In Janu-
ary 1946, upon completion of military service, Mr.
Powell returned to the Labor Force at the Library.
Since that time he has held progressively responsible
positions in the Buildings Management Office. In
1950, he was promoted to Labor Supervisor. he
assumed his present position in November 1958.
On Wednesday, May 24, Mr. Powell was honored at
a reception in the Whittall Pavilion. William J. Wel h.
LC Information Bulletin
Director of the Processing Department, presided over
a presentation ceremony held at the reception. The
Librarian presented Mr. Powell with a gift from the
Librarian's Conference and a Meritorious Service
Award which cited Mr. Powell for "the dignity with
which you have carried out your duties and the
unfailing courtesy you have shown to members of the
Library staff and the Library's visitors. Your initia-
tive, proficiency, and good nature, on which the
Library could always rely, have earned the respect
and affection of your colleagues, especially of the
Librarian of Congress and of the Librarian's Confer-
ence." F. E. Croxton, Director of the Administrative

District of Columbia Department of Corrections, and
members have visited the D.C. Jail and Lorton Cor-
rectional Complex to review law library services.
They found in both places that the available books
were old, unusable, and not pertinent to the pris-
oners' needs. A checklist of the items needed at
Lorton and the D.C. Jail has been drawn up by the
committee, and donations requested from the
Society's membership. The Committee plans to
attempt to obtain sufficient funds to purchase what-
ever volumes have not been donated so that both loca-

addition, the Law Librarians' Society hopes to
provide a reference librarian for a few hours each
Saturday afternoon to assist inmates, starting in Sep-

Just published, this highly selective bibliography of
approximately 700 entries reflects the keen and per-
sistent interest that the establishment of the Federal
Republic of Germany in 1949 generated in the
United States, particularly in the American scholarly
community. This list, therefore, contains not only
translations from the German and standard informa-
tional materials, but also includes a large body of
original American studies, mostly in the social sci-

to the specialist and the librarian, and it encompasses

The Joint ALA/SAA Committee was established
two years ago to further cooperation between the
two organizations on matters of mutual interest,
among them automation, legislation, microforms, pre-
servation, cataloging and other types of description of
informational materials, and the establishment of
standards and education. The committee was orga-
nized following the 1970 ALA Annual Conference in
Detroit, where a meeting between officers of the two
organizations and an initial joint program session
were held. Last fall a joint program was presented at
the SAA Conference in San Francisco, and this year,
in addition to the Chicago program, there will be a
committee-sponsored session on legislative liaison at
the Columbus, Ohio meeting of the SAA on October
The present members of the joint committee under

ARBC Holds Meeting in Boston
A meeting of the American Revolution Bicenten-
nial Commission (ARBC) was held in Boston May
15-16. Chairman David J. Mahoney presided at most
of the sessions.
The first day was devoted to committee meetings,
including the Committee on Heritage '76, of which
the Library of Congress is a member, and to the pre-
sentation of the State plans of Connecticut, Maine,
New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island,
and Vermont, as well as to the New England Regional
Council's plans on transportation. The day closed
with a reception for ARBC members and staff, given
by the Boston group. The festivities were muted by
the shocking news of the shooting of Governor
George Wallace. Senator Edward W. Brooke, a mem-
ber of ARBC who was in Boston for the afternoon
meeting, spoke sorrowfully and eloquently of the
state of the country that could lead to such violence

and called for understanding among all races and
The very full schedule of the meeting was revised so
that Tuesday morning could be devoted to the main
issue of the conference: should an International Ex-
position be held in Philadelphia in 1976? A persuasive
argument, with maps and other graphics illustrating
Philadelphia's newest plans, was preented by William
L. Rafsky of the Philadelphia Bicentennial Corpora-
tion. J. William Nelson presented the Commerce De-
partment's detailed analysis of the advantages of that
plan as well as the challenges, including the time
element (with necessary completion by 1976) and the
cost. Chairman Mahoney read messages from some
members who could not be present, US. Representa-
tive Lawrence G. Williams brought out many perti-
nent points, and others presented pro's and con's
before a roll call vote was taken to determine what
the Commission should recommend to President
Nixon. An International Exposition (that is, a one-
year world's fair that would have the sanction of the
Bureau of International Expositions) in Philadelphia,
or elsewhere in the United States, was over-
whelmingly defeated. This was consistent with the
strong feeling within the Commission from its begin-
ning that the commemoration of the Bicentennial
should be truly national, that it should take place all
over the United States, and that a one-year world's
fair would lead the citizens of this and of other coun-
tries to regard the Exposition as the observance. The
vote, of course, does not preclude locally-sponsored
fairs on a variety of other Bicentennial events.
The Commission then adjourned to Faneuil Hall,
where in those historic surroundings with busts and
portraits of John Adams, Samuel Adams, John Han-
cock, and other patriots looking on, Boston's mayor
Kevin White greeted the group and, with others,
showed how Boston's Bicentennial plans are develop-
ing. A reception and luncheon given by the city was
then held in nearby new City Hall.
The Tuesday afternoon session was devoted chiefly
to committee reports, in the course of which LC's
first Bicentennial Symposium was favorably men-
tioned. James Biddle, Chairman of the Heritage '76
Committee, with Richard P. McCormick, and ARBC
member and Professor at Rutgers University, Thomas
Cochrane, Professor at the University of Pennsylvania
and President of the American Historical Association,
and Charles Lee, Director of the South Carolina De-
partment of Archives and History and President of
the Society of American Archivists, presented Heri-
tage '76 plans, emphasizing the committee's proposal
for a National Historic Records Program. This pro-
posal, which has the active support of the leading
archival and historical associations calls for a National
Historic Records Commissions and the making of
matching grants for locating, preserving, and making
accessible the Nation's public and private historic
records. Regarding the Program, the full Commission
passed the following Resolution:
That the ARBC recommends to the President and to the
Congress of the United States the National Historic Records
Program as a meritorious contribution to the national Bicen-
tennial effort. This program will result in saving, preserving,
and making available to scholars, historians and the public a
priceless and irreplaceable part of American heritage: and
The ARBC recommends that necessary administrative and
legislative actions be taken to implement and fund the pro-
The ARBC awards use of the official symbol to be used in
accordance with the ARBC Graphics Manual.
Other reports dealt with appropriations; Bicenten-
nial parks; "Festival USA" (formerly "Open House
USA"), which is concerned with cultural and travel
aspects of the Bicentennial; "Call for Achievement,"
a new nationwide but local program of goal-setting;
internal ARBC procedures; and, instead of "Festival
of Freedom," a new national theme: "A Past to
Remember-A Future to Mold."
Mrs. Elizabeth E. Hamer, who represents the
Library on the Commission, attended the Boston
meeting. The next meeting of the ARBC will be held
in Atlanta, September 7-8.
