dent of Baltimore, Md., and Whitefield, N.H. Her
books of poetry include For the Unlost (1944), The

Playwrights of Silence (1968), and Samuel Beckett's
Long Saturday: To Wait or Not To Wait, published in

Raschid," has been selected for publication in Prize
Stories of 1973: The 0. Henry Awards, to be issued
in the spring of 1973. This is Mrs. Jacobsen's fifth
story to be included in an anthology of prize-winners
and her third 0. Henry Award story.

An exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary
of Brazilian independence is on display in the His-
panic Society Room of the Latin American, Portu-
guese, and Spanish Division. Brazilian independence
from Portugal came about in a gradual and peaceful
series of events, beginning with the establishment of
the Portuguese Court in Rio de Janeiro in 1808. The
day officially celebrated as Independence Day is
September 7, the date in 1822 that the Prince D.

Pedro I resolved to make a final break with the
mother country and his famous cry of "independence
or death" became a slogan Earlier that same year, he
had defied orders from the Portuguese governing
body to return to Portugal.
The example of United States independence had a
powerful effect upon dissident colonists in Brazil. As
early as the 1780's, when Thomas Jefferson was U.S.
Minister to France, he was approached by a young
Brazilian studying at the University of Montpelier
who asked for aid in a movement to free Brazil from
Portugal. A copy of one of his letters found in the
Library's Jefferson Papers, written in French and
signed with a pseudonym, is among the items in the
exhibit. In the letter, Jos6 Joaquim da Maia, stated "I
am a Brazilian." and pointed out that Brazil and the
United States had much in common. A "Geographi-
cal, Statistical, and Historical Map of Brazil," printed
by Carey and Lea of Philadelphia in 1822, shows 12
provinces or capitanias, which today fill out most of
Brazil's boundaries, but in more numerous jurisdic-
Jean Baptiste Debret's Voyage Pittoresque et His-
torique au Bresil Depuis 1816 Jusqu'en 1831 is
opened to a large drawing of D. Pedro I's acclamation
as Emperor, an event that took place on the Prince's
24th birthday, October 12, 1822. The pictures taken

from this rare set appear m nearly every illustrated
work on 19th-century Brazil. A recently issued mono-
graph. Os Dois Ingleses, Strangford e Stuart, written
by the late Brazilian historian Alberto Rangel and
published jointly by the Conselho Federal de Cultura
and the Arquivo Nacional of Brazil appears in the
exhibit. It is one of a group of commemorative gov-
ernment publications that are currently being issued
in Brazil.
Some of the Library's primary sources for the
study of the period are exhibited. The journals and
accounts of Henry Koster, who was for several years a
resident of Brazil's Northeast, and of Maria Graham,
later Lady Callcott, contain interesting sketches of
scenery and people along with descriptive commen-
tary on Brazil and the Brazilians of the years immedi-
ately before or during the most important events of
the independence movement. The work of the
German scientists Johann Baptist von Spix and Carl
Friedrich von Martius is represented by a facsimile
reprint of scenes of life in various regions of Brazil.
Prominent leaders of the independence movement
are pictured in the exhibit. They include Jose Boni-
facio de Andrada e Silva, the leading political thinker
and strategist in securing independence under a mon-
archy; the King. D. Joao VI, who increased the stat-
ure of Brazil within the Portuguese Empire: and his
son, D. Pedro 1, under whose personal aegis Brazil
began its independent existence.
The comment of one U.S. observer is shown in
Henry Marie Brackenridge's observations on the
future of Brazil, made after witnessing the ceremonies
that raised Brazil to the status of a kingdom in 1817.
Comments of a few years later that appeared in Niles'
Weekly Register and in newspaper columns are also
included. Notice of the formal recognition of Brazil is
shown by a newspaper account in which Secretary of
State John Quincy Adams presented Jose Silvestre
Rebello, Charge d'Affaires of the new nation, to Pres-
ident Monroe. who received him in this official capac-
ity. This formal ceremony occurred on May 26, 1824,
and marked the beginning of formal diplomatic rela-
tions between the United States and Brazil.
The exhibit will remain on view through Novem-
ber I.

Influenza Immunization Program
For the convenience and protection of the staff, an
influenza immunization program will be conducted in
the Library on September 26 and November 15. The
lime and place for vaccination will be announced
later. There will be no charge for the vaccination.
The Public Health Service Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices recommends that the vaccine
be given on a selective basis to persons over 45 years
of age and persons of all ages who have chronic debili-
tating conditions such as rheumatic heart disease,
arteriosclerotic heart disease, high blood pressure,
chronic bronchopulmonary diseases (asthma, bronchi-
tis, emphysema), diabetes mellitus or Addison's
disease. The vaccine is not presently recommended
for healthy adults and children, and should not be
administered to persons allergic to eggs.
Dr. James R. Snyder, the Library's Medical
Advisor. recommends that persons with chronic
health problems receive permission of their private
physician to have the vaccine.
Persons who received the vaccine containing Hong
Kong strain antigen in the 1968-69 or subsequent sea-
sons require only a single booster of bivalent vaccine.
Those receiving the vaccine for the first time require
two injections administered six to eight weeks apart
Inquiries concerning the program should be di-
rected to the Supervisor of Health Services, ext.

Brenda A. Morgan and Larry Addison were married
on Saturday, August 19, at the First Greater Baptist
Church in Washington D.C. Mrs. Addison is an Edito-

rial Typist in the Catalog Publication Division and Mr.
Addison is employed i private industry.


On September 30, the Card Division will make
available for sale tapes containing approximately
49,000 1968 RECON records. These records were
converted into machine-readable form during the
RECON Pilot Project. and in conjunction with the
catalog records issued through the MARC Distribu-
tion Service since its beginning in April 1969, consti-
tute, in machine-readable form, the English language
cataloging output for monographs of the Library of
Congress for the years 1968 to the present.
The 1968 RECON records are available on both
7-track (556 cpi) and 9-track (800 cpi) tapes and are
written in the American Standard Code for Informa-
tion Interchange (ASCII). The price for the 1968
RECON tapes is 1,000; requests for purchase of the
tapes should be sent to the MARC Distribution
Service. Card Division, Library of Congress, Building
159, Navy Yard Annex, Washington, D.C. 20541.
Purchasers who have regular established accounts
with the Card Division may charge their subscriptions
to their accounts. Others who do not have accounts
must pay in advance by check or money order, made
payable to the Chief, Card Division.


Librarians perusing recent publishers' catalogs will
notice a new element of information of particular
interest to them. Several publishers participating in
the Cataloging in Publication Program are now adver-
tising the fact in their sales catalogs, newsletters, and
other promotional publications. Random House,
Alfred O. Knopf, and Pantheon indicate CIP titles in
their periodic trade catalogs by adding the letters CIP
to the price, collation, ISBN, and LC Card Number in
the annotation for an individual title. Dial and Dela-
corte announce at the beginning of their catalogs that
"All of our books carry Library of Congress Catalog-
ing in Publication Data."
When a publishing house agrees to participate in the
CIP program, all galleys and/or front matter for
future titles are sent to the CIP office for cataloging
by the various divisions of the Processing Depart-
ment. Some titles which were in production before a
house joined CIP will not, of course, include CIP

41 S

data. Many houses in such a transitional stage desig-
nate CIP titles with an asterisk or other identifying
symbol. The longevity of a publisher's participation
in CIP can almost be determined by the phrase used
to inform his library public. One publisher, for in-
stance, states in its catalogs that the majority of its
books will contain CIP data on the copyright page.
In the Wiley-Interscience Librarian's Newsletter,
John Wiley & Sons adds the letters CIP to its tear-out
order cards, which also contain pertinent descriptive
information along with a brief annotation, ISBN, and
LC Card Number. Other publishers' catalogs adver-
tising CIP annotations include Syracuse University
Press, J. B. Lippincott Co.. John Knox Press,
McGraw-Hill, Inc., AMS Press, Arno Press, Books for
Libraries, Stackpole Books, Folcroft Library Edi-
tions, and Watson-Guptill Publications.


Latin American and Iberian scholars joined Library
officials at a luncheon August 17 given by the Librari-
an of Congress in honor of U.S. Ambassador to
Argentina John Davis Lodge. Ambassador Lodge,
who has had a long and distinguished career in public
life, is no stranger to Washington or the Library of
Congress. Born, as he told the luncheon guests, in
what is now the 1925 F Street Club, he became well
acquainted with the Library and its services during

two terms in Congress, 1946-50, when he represented
the 4th District of Connecticut. The collections of
the Latin American, Portuguese, and Spanish Division
have claimed his interest since his appointment in
1955 as Ambassador to Spain, where he served until
1961. In recognition of his service in that country, he
was awarded the Grand Cross of the Noble Order of
Charles III and the Gold Medal of Madrid. Since July
1969 he has represented the United States in Argen-
The Ambassador of Argentina to the United States,
Carlos Manuel Mufiiz, and several officials of the
Embassy also attended the luncheon. Ambassador
Mufiiz, a diplomat, educator, writer, and lawyer, has
served in his country's cabinet, as Ambassador to
Brazil and Bolivia, and as Foreign Minister of the
Argentine Republic.
