AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



A. L. A. CONFERENCE, 1921 

Swampscott, Massachusetts, June 20-27 



THE FORTY-THIBD ANNUAL CONFERENCE Of 

the American Library Association will be 
held at the New Ocean House, Swampscott, 
Massachusetts, June 20-27, 1921. 

Swampscott is twelve miles from Bos- 
ton and is one of the "finest among the 
many summer resorts along the beautiful 
North Shore. Here, facing the wide ex- 
panse of Massachusetts Bay, and fronting 
upon a broad curving sandy bathing beach, 
stands the New Ocean House, a long es- 
tablished, well-known and widely popular 
resort hotel. During the past two years 
it has been greatly enlarged, re-arranged 
and beautified, its capacity much increased. 
With expanded facilities, its attractive en- 
vironment makes it an ideal spot for a 
restful summer sojourn by the sea." 

"The New Ocean House consists of two 
distinct portions: the Main Hotel, and the 
Annex, a splendid seven-story building. 
The Main Hotel has 160 rooms and 80 bath- 
rooms, the Annex 68 rooms and 66 bath- 
rooms. For the accommodation of patrons 
who prefer the privacy of cottage life, 
there are upon the grounds of the hotel, 
and in close proximity to it, four cottages 
of from eight to twelve rooms each." 

Mr. Faxon, chairman of the A. L. A. 
Travel Committee, reports that "the hotel 
can accommodate, in its main house, seven- 
story fire proof annex, and four private 
cottages, 705 people provided there are two 
in all rooms, and, in the larger rooms, with 
the aid of cots, three, four, five and six 
young ladies are quartered." "I feel sure," 
Mr. Faxon says, "that with the size of the 
rooms and the facilities, there will be no 
kick about thus doubling up in the few big 
rooms." 

Other hotels and boarding houses within 
reasonable distance will accommodate per- 
haps 600 more. 



The dates, June 20-27, were selected by 
the Executive Board because they will not 
interfere with most college commencement 
exercises. 

Special railroad rates may be available; 
it is too early yet for definite information. 
In any case Swampscott is included among 
the New England summer resorts to which 
regular summer tourist rates are some- 
times available after the first of June. 

The program is in the making. Only 
one thing is certain, namely, that a confer- 
ence near Boston will inevitably have a 
distinctly "literary" flavor. It may per- 
haps be not too much to hope that libra- 
rians this year will have an opportunity to 
be entertained by some of New England's 
most distinguished men of letters. 

In selecting the meeting place for 1921 
the Executive Board considered numerous 
hotels and cities. 

An invitation from Southern librarians 
to meet somewhere in the South was given 
special attention. Richmond and Asheville 
were both able to offer satisfactory accom- 
modations, but the Board, remembering 
Washington and Louisville, thought a 
Southern meeting must necessarily be an 
early meeting. This seemed particularly 
undesirable in 1921, in view of the fact 
that the meeting in 1920 was so early as to 
be a great inconvenience to college libra- 
rians. The Board also took into account 
the fact that the President this year is con- 
nected with a University, and must, in 
spite of her presidency, conform to univer- 
sity schedules. 



Mr. M. S. Dudgeon states that those who 
go to A. L. A. and other meetings at the 
expense of cities or states or at the ex- 
pense of the federal government are en- 
titled to get railroad tickets without tax.

CHICAGO MID-WINTER MEETINGS 



The Mid-winter meetings at Chicago 
were attended by 238 persons. The 
A. L. A. Council held two sessions one of 
which was a joint meeting with the League 
of Library Commissions. The League of 
Library Commissions held two other meet- 
ings and there were one or more confer- 
ences of the University Librarians, the 
College Librarians and the Normal School 
Librarians. Meetings were also held 'by 
the Executive Board, the Publishing Board 
and the Committee on Education. 
JOINT MEETING OF COUNCIL AND 
LEAGUE OF LIBRARY COMMISSIONS 
December 28, 1920 

An open meeting of the Council and 
League of Library Commissions was held 
at the I^tSalle Hotel, December 28, 1920. 

Miss Alice S. Tyler, president, presided. 

Library Support and Library Revenues 
Mr. S. H. Ranck of Grand Rapids, Mich., 
read a paper on "Sources and Responsi- 
bilities of Library Revenues." 

This was followed by a paper on the 
same subject by Judge Ora L. Wildermuth 
of Gary, Ind. 

It is expected that both of these papers, 
in part at least, and some report of the 
discussion which followed, will appear in 
the library periodicals. 

The following persons took part in the 
discussion: Dr. A. E. Bostwick, Miss Linda 
A. Eastman, Henry N. San born, Miss 
Grace D. Rose, Miss Mary Eileen Ahern, 
Adam Strohm, Mrs. Elizabeth Claypool 
Earl, M. S. Dudgeon, Wm. J. Hamilton, 
Wm. F. Yust, J. L. Wheeler, Dr. Frank P. 
Hill, Miss Anna MacDonald, Miss Julia A. 
Robinson. 

The President announced that the 
A. L. A. Conference in 1921 will be held at 
Swampscott, Mass., June 20-27. 

COUNCIL MEETING 

December 29, 1920 

An open meeting of the Council and 

League of Library Commissions was held 

at the LaSalle Hotel, December 28, 1920. 

Miss Alice S. Tyler, president, presided. 



Field and Function of a National Pro- 
fessional Organization. Mr. Henry N. San- 
born, Bridgeport, Conn., read a paper on 
this subject. (This paper has been printed 
in Library Journal for Jan. 15th, and a 
summary of it is being printed in February 
Public Libraries.) 

Mr. H. H. B. Meyer, in discussing Mr. 
Sanborn's paper, said that in his opinion 
nothing would so advance the interest of 
library affairs in the vicinity of Washing- 
ton as a regional association which would 
take in the states of Virginia, West Vir- 
ginia, Maryland and the District. 

Miss Ahern said "There is no question 
but that the Regional Association is com- 
ing. I had a strong letter this week from 
a librarian in the state of Nebraska who 
points out the fallacy of their belonging to 
a state association and belonging also to 
the A. L. A. with nothing in between. My 
own preference had been for one strong 
national association; and I may say, when 
I read this letter from the Nebraska libra- 
rian, I had a complete reversion to the 
other point of view." 

"Indiana is very anxious to become a 
part of the A. L. A.," said Mr. William J. 
Hamilton, of Indianapolis. "We are not 
satisfied at all to have 350 or 400 members 
of our Indiana Library Association and 
only 100 or 125 members of the A. L. A. 
We want to see some arrangement by 
which every single member of the I. L. A. 
can become automatically a member of the 
A. L. A. I am very certain that any plan 
presented by the A. L. A. for a federation 
with state associations will have the 
hearty approval of the librarians of Indi- 
ana. We want to be a part of the national 
organization. We are not content with 
our state association alone." 

The President asked whether the addi- 
tion of regional meetings to the annual 
conferences, the mid-winter meetings and 
the various state meetings would not per- 
haps make too many library meetings, and 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



suggested a discussion of biennial meet- 
ings versus annual meetings. 

Miss Julia A. Robinson, of Iowa, thought 
the Iowa Library Association would be 
heartily in favor of group and regional 
meetings. Mr. Meyer expressed the hope 
that regional meetings would rather re- 
duce the total number of meetings than 
increase the number. His opinion was 
that many states might eliminate at least 
some of their state meetings because they 
would be satisfied with their regional 
meeting. 

Serious objection to any proposed aban- 
donment of state meetings was voiced by 
Miss Anna MacDonald of Pennsylvania and 
by others. 

Mrs. Elizabeth C. Earl, of Indiana, stated 
that the General Federation of Women's 
Clubs holds national and state meetings 
biennially. 

St. Louis Will Form Local Group 

"My idea about regional organizations," 
said Dr. Bostwick, of St. Louis, "is that 
we should encourage the formation of lo- 
cal groups of members of the A. L. A. in 
small localities wherever we possibly can. 
Those groups can be formed without any 
authority from the A. L. A. For instance 
we have in mind the formation of one in 
St. Louis at a very early date, probably 
within a few weeks, and we shall do it 
whether we are authorized to do so by the 
A. L. A. or not. The people who were 
born in Ohio can get together in St. Louis 
and form an association in St. Louis and 
the people with red hair and blue eyes can 
get together and form an organization, and 
I can see no objection to people belonging 
to the American Library Association get- 
ting together and saying that they will 
further the interests of the A. L. A. in that 
locality. 

"But I can see the wisdom of our laying 
down a few brief suggestions for their 
work and the way in which the organiza- 
tion is to be carried on." 

Dr. Bostwick said that instead of hav- 
ing members of the Library Staff ask, 
"What is there in it for us to join the 



A. L. A.?" they would ask, "How can I get 
into it?" For if they want to belong to 
the local organization they must first join 
the A. L. A. 

Membership Dues 

Several persons discussed the question 
of whether the A. L. A. and the various 
regional or state groups could have one 
annual membership fee, which would cover 
membership in all the organizations. It 
was suggested that it might be advisable 
to have one membership which includes 
the Proceedings in the Handbook and an- 
other membership which does not include 
these publications. The amount would 
be perhaps $5.00 and $2.00. 

The question having been raised, the 
President asked how many favored an in- 
crease in the annual dues. Nearly all 
raised their hands but no count was taken. 
Discussing the proposed plan of electing 
officers by mail, Mr. Ranck called attention 
to the fact that this sometimes results in 
the election of people who are well known 
but who will not give any attention to the 
business in hand. 

"It seems to me," said Mr. Carl B. Roden 
of the Chicago Public Library, "that we 
might pause a moment and consider 
whether we are so very certain that we 
want to draw this straight and sharp line 
between a welfare organization and a pro- 
fessional organization. It doesn't seem to 
me that we are at the crossroads, the 
point of departure, where we have to de- 
cide whether we shall be either one or the 
other." 

He urged that no steps be taken which 
will prevent the A. L. A. from "trying to 
preach its gospel over the country in the 
places where it is not the function of any- 
one else to preach that gospel." 

Mr. Sanborn stated that Mr. Roden had 
misunderstood what he (Mr. Sanborn) had 
said in his paper, that there was nothing 
whatever in the suggestions made that 
would prevent the A. L. A. from doing 
what Mr. Roden had in mind. 

In addition to those mentioned above, 
the following persons took part in the dis- 



BULLETIN 



cussion: P. L. Windsor, F. P. Hill, J. L. 
Wheeler, C. E. Rush, J. C. M. Hanson, 
O. S. Rice. 

Ex-President Hadley's Suggestions 
The following suggestions from Mr. Had- 
ley based on his presidential address at 
Colorado Springs, were read by the Sec- 
retary. 

Some preliminary suggestions for a con- 
sideration of ways and means of bringing 
the American Library Association and li- 
brary workers into closer relation and co- 
operation for their mutual benefit and for 
promoting the welfare of libraries in 
America, particularly through promoting 
the welfare of library employees. 
It is suggested: 

First: That Section 14 of the A. L. A. 
constitution be amended to read: "The 
Council shall consist of the Executive 
Board, all ex-presidents of the Associa- 
tion who continue members thereof, all 
presidents of affiliated societies who are 
members of the Association, and repre- 
sentatives from state, provincial and ter- 
ritorial library associations to be elected 
at the annual meetings of such associa- 
tions, on the "basis of one representative 
from the association having a membership 
of fifty or less, and one additional rep- 
resentative for each additional one hun- 
dred members, the representative in all 
cases to hold personal membership in the 
American Library Association." 

"Members of such state, provincial or 
territorial association who belong to the 
American Library Association shall con- 
stitute a state chapter of the American Li- 
brary Association if such is approved by 
vote of such Association, and local groups 
of American Library Association members 
within such state or geographical division 
desiring to organize may become a local 
chapter of the American Library Associa- 
tion registered under the state chapter." 
Second: It is suggested that the Amer- 
ican Library Association issue charters for 
the organization of these state, provincial, 
or territorial associations as integral parts 
of the American Library Association and 
in those charters it shall define the proper 
and improper activities of these working 
units of the American Library Association. 
Third: It is suggested that the American 
Library Association, through and with the 
cooperation of these state, provincial or 
territorial associations, endeavor to stabil- 
ize and secure fair and just salaries for 
employees in the various grades of library 



' service, and endeavor also to secure for all 
library employees proper hours of work 
per week, vacation and sick leave time. 

It is suggested also that recommenda- 
tions made by the American Library Asso- 
ciation on salaries, hours of work, sick 
leave time, etc., be made available for lo- 
cal use 'by A. L. A. chapters, and that cir- 
cular letters advocating proper salaries 
and working conditions be sent by the 
American Library Association to the in- 
dividual library trustees of such library 
institutions as may be designated from 
time to time by the state or local chapters 
of the A. L. A. 

It is also recommended that the Amer- 
ican Library Association give personal as- 
sistance when possible and when request- 
ed to do so, to its state and local chapters 
when questions affecting salaries, hours of 
work and the general welfare of library 
employees are being considered by these 
chapters, and that the A. L. A. assist in 
every possible way to advance and stabil- 
ize library salaries as the means to do so 
present themselves in the proposed closer 
relations between the American Library 
Association and its members. 

In discussing Mr. Hadley's suggestions, 
Dr. Bostwick said he thought the plan was 
too elaborate; that what we wanted was 
something very simple. "It sems to me," 
said Dr. Bostwick, "that state chapters 
of the A. L. A. are a great mistake. They 
conflict with state organizations. The as- 
sociations I propose would be in towns 
where there are no associations." 

Mr. Hamilton of Indiana expressed the 
opinion that a large number of state asso- 
ciations would be perfectly willing to 
merge themselves with the A. L. A. and 
to lose their identity as state associations. 
Others who took part in the discussion 
on this subject were Dr. C. W. Andrews, 
Henry N. Sanborn, Miss Mary Eileen 
Ahern, S. H. Ranck, W. M. Smith, O. S. 
Rice, Adam Strohm, Miss Linda A. East- 
man and F. W. Schenck. 

Committee on Publications 
The following report was presented:

Council on the constitutionality or advis-

ability of the employment of a publisher 
by the Executive Board, begs to report its 
recommendation that this matter 'be re- 
ferred to the Publishing Board for such 
disposition as in its judgment may seem 
proper. ARTHUR E. BOSTWICK, 

Chairman. 

The other members of the Committee 
were Messrs. A. S. Root and M. G. Wyer. 

The report was approved by a vote of 
19-1. 

Statement by Treasurer 

Mr. Tweedell presented a report on the 
status of War Service, Enlarged Program 
Campaign and Books for Everybody 
Funds. (See pages 12-13.) 

There was some discussion of the War 
Service Continuation work. 

Committee on Committees 

At the suggestion of the president it was 
Voted: That the President appoint a 
Committee on Committees, to report to the 
Council. 

It was understood that the purpose of 
this Committee is to draft a 'brief state- 
ment showing what is the work of each 
Committee, and also to make recommenda- 
tions as to the Committees which should 
be created or discontinued. 

LEAGUE OF LIBRARY COMMISSIONS 

The annual meeting was held on De- 
cember 28-29th. Thirteen states were rep- 
resented. 

The discussion covered, "Entrance re- 
quirements for summer schools," "Library 
buildings for small towns," "Branch libra- 
ries in schools," "Uniform traveling li- 
brary record blanks," "Proposed legisla- 
tion" (see page 16), and "Indiana mini- 
mums." 

The officers elected were: 

President, Wm. C. Watson, New York; 
first vice-president, Wm. J. Hamilton, In- 
diana, for 1 year; second vice-president, 
Mary P. Palmer, North Carolina, for 1 
year; member at large, Milton J. Fergu- 
son, California, term to expire January, 
1924; secretary and treasurer, Anna May 
Price; members at large, terms holding 
over, Elizabeth Wales, Grace E. Kings- 
land. 



A joint session was held with the 
A. L. A. Council on the afternoon of the 
28th. 

(More detailed reports will undoubted 
ly be found in the library periodicals.) 
COLLEGE LIBRARIANS 

The Conference of College Librarians oi 
the Middle West was held as usual at the 
Hotel LaSalle, Chicago, on Monday, De- 
cember 27th. 

Various topics dealing with college li- 
brary problems were introduced by the 
different members and informal discus- 
sions followed. Special mention should be 
given an interesting paper read by Mr. 
J. C. M. Hanson of the University of Chi- 
cago on the "Library of Congress Classifi- 
cation." 

Miss Ada M. Nelson, Knox College, 
Galesburg, Illinois, was elected chairman 
for the next meeting. 

NORMAL SCHOOL LIBRARIANS 
Reading Lists and Exhibits 

Over twenty Normal school librarians 
met Monday, December 27, 1920, at the La 
Salle Hotel to discuss the topics previous- 
ly suggested. 

Most of those present agreed that in- 
stead of preparing reference lists, a bet- 
ter way is to obtain lists prepared by 
larger libraries and check them. Some li- 
brarians had prepared special card indexes 
of fairy tales, material on picture study and 
stories in readers. While most of the li- 
braries represented owned picture collec- 
tions usage was about evenly divided be- 
tween classification by the Decimal class- 
ification and alphabetical arrangement by 
subject. In many instances industrial ex- 
hibits and slides are housed in the libra- 
ry and it was suggested that specimens of 
common minerals and mounted specimens 
of common birds used in the elementary 
school also be made available through the 

library. 

Teaching the Teachers 

In the afternoon the time was spent dis- 
cussing teaching the use of the library and 
similar topics. Only one librarian taught 
the children in grades 1-6, but more taught 
simple reference books to the pupils in 



BULLETIN 



the Junior high school and some course 
was quite generally taught in the Normal 
schools; either the use of reference books 
and catalog or some simple technical 
work. Practice varied in teaching chil- 
dren's literature, some of the courses being 
taught by the teachers of English and 
some by the librarians. The demand for 
teacher-librarians seems to be centralized 
in one or two states and in these states 
the course is popular. In other states 
where there is no demand it was not 
taught. 

Mr. Arthur Cunningham, librarian of the 
state Normal school at Terre Haute, Ind., 
was appointed chairman for next year. 

COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION 

A meeting of the A. L. A. Committee on 
Education was held at the Hotel LaSalle, 
Dec. 27-28. 

It was decided to ask each State Libra- 
ry Association to appoint a Committee on 
Education to cooperate with the A. L. A. 
Committee on Education in developing 
public opinion in each state with regard 
to library standards. The desire Is to 
set up standards for school library and 
public library cooperation to be met in 
each state. State aid is desirable because 
it gives a basis of control. Without it 
commissions are advisory only. 

To set up the standards a survey will 
be taken through a brief questionnaire as 
to the requirements needed for educa- 
tion, training and experience, emphasis 
being placed upon equal rank with the 
teachers in the various communities. The 
standards decided upon must be backed 
by the A. L. A. Certification Board. 

The question of the degree which 
should stand for graduate library work 
was taken up. It was decided to confer 
with the Association of American Library 
Schools. It seems advisable in view of 
the present urgent call for library workers 
to establish regional Library Schools at 
various state universities. 

Discussion of Dr. Sherman Williams' 
proposed points of activity for the N. E. 



A. Library Section brought out the fol- 
lowing suggestions: 1 Substituting for 
"library in every school," "books in every 
school." It was felt that the word library 
would in many cases be a misnomer. 2 
The salary of the school librarian to be 
the same as that of a teacher of equal 
education and professional training. 3 
The training of school librarians in Nor- 
mal School Libraries was questioned as 
lacking the view point of the Public Li- 
brary work. This difficulty, however, 
could be obviated and the value of nor- 
mal training for school librarians re- 
tained by requiring a stated amount of 
practice during the training period in 
public library work particularly in refer- 
ence work and with children. 

The combination of the State Depart- 
ments .of Education and of the library 
commissions seems open to danger from 
political influence and office holding by 
persons without library knowledge. When 
such combinations are contemplated by a 
state the preliminary steps should be that 
the State Board of Education be removed 
from politics and that the Commissioner 
of Education be thoroughly interested in 
library affairs. 

The earnest promotion of the plans of 
the various education sections of the 
A. L. A. and of the Library Section of the 
N. E. A. should form a large part of the 
committee's work. 

Finally: 

1. The committee wishes to urge that 
each community take immediate steps to 
place its public librarians and its school 
librarians upon an equal footing with the 
teaching force in the community. 

2. That each public library be related 
to the school library service. 

At the request of the Chairman, Mr. 
Kerr sent a communication giving exten- 
sive suggestions for the future activities 
of the committee.

Secretary.

Transfer of Library War Service Activi- 
ties: Mr. Meyer presented a supplement- 
ary report. 

Voted: That the Board approve the rec- 
ommendations of the Committee in regard 
to the library service at Coblenz, and that 
the services of Miss Wyeth be retained for 
six months longer at $175 per month. 

Voted: That the Secretary and Chairman 
of the Committee be authorized to accept 
the informal verbal offer of the Red Cross 
to pay the salaries for hospital library 
work after January first, pending transfer 
to the Public Health Service when this 
offer is made in writing; that it be under- 
stood that the A. L. A. obligates itself to 
refund the amount expended only in case 
it receives the anticipated sum from the 
United War Work Campaign Fund. 

Voted: That the Secretary be instructed 
to lay before the welfare organizations the 
matter of magazine subscriptions for the 
hospital service for the coming year, ask- 
ing them to provide the necessary money; 
and that the Secretary report at the next 
meeting of the Executive Board. 

Voted: That the recommendation of the 
Committee regarding the Merchant Marine 
as embodied in this supplementary report 
be approved and adopted. 

Mrs. Henry Howard of Cleveland was 
invited in to discuss with the Board the 
problems connected with the continuance 
of the Merchant Marine Library Service. 
Mrs. Howard informed the Board that she 
expected to go to New York about the first 
of January to urge the co-operation of the 
shipping interests in the formation of a 
United States Mercantile Marine Library 
Association. She suggested the need of 
publicity about the Merchant Marine Li- 



brary Service and asked to be supplied 
with all available information as to ship- 
ping men who had been solicited for dona- 
tions. 

Voted: That a sum not to exceed $500.00 
be appropriated to advance the proposed 
transfer of the Merchant Marine Library 
Service, such sum to be subject to the 
recommendation and control of the Chair- 
man of the Committee on the transfer of 
Library War Service activities. 

Voted: That the Executive Board author- 
ize Mrs. Howard, as a representative of 
the A. L. A., to present this matter before 
the ship owners and the other interests 
that may be concerned, with a view to the 
organization of a Marine Library Associa- 
tion. 

Upon invitation Mr. G. A. Marr, secre- 
tary-treasurer of the Lake Carriers Asso- 
ciation, was present for a brief time to 
consult with the Board concerning the 
plans for transferring the Merchant Ma- 
rine Library Service on the Great Lakes 
to some other organization. Mr. Marr was 
asked whether the Lake Carriers Associa- 
tion would be likely to co-operate in the 
maintenance of Library service with a 
Marine Library Association, if such an As- 
sociation should be formed. He replied 
that his organization is much interested in 
the service and would undoubtedly like to 
see it- continued but that he could not 
state whether the Association would be 
willing to co-operate in maintaining a Ma- 
rine Library Association. He thought 
they might prefer, if they undertook the 
work at all, to carry it on through their 
own machinery. 

Mr. Marr left the meeting with the un- 
derstanding that the situation stands as it 
had formerly been presented by the Sec- 
retary to the Lake Carriers Association; 
that if any modifications were to be made 
in our proposals they were to be made 
in writing and preferably before the Janu- 
ary meeting of his Board.

blind. 

Voted: That $20,000.00 of the balance 
now in the American Library Association 
Campaign Fund be transferred to the 
American Library Association War Funds. 

A note from the Treasurer explained 
that the James L. Whitney Fund, amount- 
ing to $562.46, is now deposited as a sav-

Liberty Bonds may now be purchased at

The following resolution passed by the 
Southeastern Librarians' Conference was

"RESOLVED: That the librarians of the 
Southeastern states in conference at Chat- 
tanooga, November 12, 1920, urge the 
American Library Association to hold its 
1921 conference in the South. The great 
and rapidly expanding interest in libraries 
in the South would be greatly stimulated 
by the inspiration of the American Library 
Association sessions. No conference has 
been held in the Southeast since 1907 and 
the A. L. A. members in this section are 
eager for the opportunity to enjoy an 
A. L. A. meeting in their own Southland." 

After discussion of the places named, 
Asheville and Richmond received unfavor- 
able votes. 

Meeting adjourned.

Although it is reasonably certain that the 
amounts given as due from the United War 
Work fund and some funds from the Books 
for Everybody fund will become available 
during 1921, it is not now possible to say 
when this will occur, and your Committee 



therefore is not prepared to approve ex- 
penditures from them. Until these become 
available, the Finance Committee recom- 
mends that expenditures be confined to the 
other income of the Association. 

The Committee, therefore, approves the 
budgeting of the following amounts for ex- 
penditure for 1921: 

General Funds $19,159.02 

Publishing Board 25,395.03

1 Additional bills for 1920 not yet in, esti- 
mated at $3,500, reduce the balance and the 
total by this amount. 

2 It will be seen that under expenditures a 
contingent fund of $4.299.02 has been pro- 
vided which cannot be drawn upon until ap- 
propriated. It is sufficient to protect the 



14 



Board against a failure to receive during the 
year the $2,800 due from the Publishing 
Board for 1921. 

8 No A. TJ. A. War Service Headquarters 
will be maintained in 1921. All of the fin- 
ishing up work will be done (so far as it can 
be done by Headquarters) from the Chicago 
office. The amount of hold-over work is con- 
siderable, enough apparently to occupy a 
very large part of the time and energy of the 
Headquarters staff. The sum set aside for 
the Headquarters Service is the same as that 
paid in 1920.

ONE HUNDRED NEW MEMBERS 

In 1920 about 500 new members joined 
the A. L. A. 

In 1921 we have already (January 19th) 
added exactly 100 new members. 

It is a safe guess that all the new mem- 
bers have joined because of some old mem- 
ber's personal solicitation. What a lot of 
new members we could have 'by the end of 
1921 if we would all spend a few minutes 
once a month asking somebody to join. 

The Cleveland Public Library has sent 
in 19 new memberships. 

New York Public Library School. 10. 

Buffalo Public Library, 8. 

St. Louis Public Library, 8. 

Gary Public Library, 7. 

There are 4 new institutional members. 

One new member is from Cuba, another 
from Porto Rico. 

Nine of the new members are library 
trustees. 



The Gary Public Library has taken out 
six memberships for library trustees. The 
seventh trustee was already a member. 
The dues for the six are paid from Public 
Library funds. 



The Birmingham Public Library is tak- 
ing out A. L. A. memberships for all of the 
members of the professional staff. They 
will be allowed to reimburse the library for 
the amount paid, by working two or three 
Sunday afternoons during the year. 



A special Committee on Membership has 
been appointed consisting of 

Miss Gratia A. Countryman, Minneapolis, 
Minn. 

Miss Alice R. Eaton, Harrisburg, Pa. 

Miss Julia Ideson, Houston, Tex. 

H. T. Dougherty, Newton, Mass.

It is proposed to call a luncheon meet- 
ing at t an early date of members of the 
American Library Association residing in 
or near St. Louis to discuss measures for 
increasing the membership and influence 
of the Association in this locality. It is 
suggested that members of the staff de- 
siring to attend this meeting make them- 
selves eligible by applying for A. L. A. 
membership at once. Application will be 
taken as evidence of membership in the 
present instance. From the St. Louis Pub-

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



FACTS FOR TRUSTEES 



The trend of affairs in the library busi- 
ness may always be fairly well indicated 
by new legislation. Perhaps the laws 
proposed in various states may be an 
equally good indication. 

Here is a summary of proposed legis- 
lation as reported at the annual jneeting 
of the League of Library Commissions in 
Chicago, December 28-29, 1920. 

Connecticut State Board of Education 
is planning to draft a bill for pension of 
teachers which should include pension of 
librarians. 

Illinois The question of pensions for 
librarians is not to be taken up until the 
present pension system relating to other 
positions has been put upon a more satis- 
factory basis. A bill for certification of 
librarians should be introduced into the 
state legislature. 

Indiana Library Commission is asking 
for 50 per cent increase in appropriations, 
also for an amendment to the county li- 
brary law. 

Iowa Library Commission asking for 
50 per cent increase in appropriations, 
also considering asking for an increase in 
maximum tax for the public libraries; but 
all libraries are not receiving the present 
maximum tax. The work in the libraries 
of state institutions has lapsed. Propose 
to ask for a new supervisor. 

Massachusetts Has asked for a large 
increase in appropriations for Commis- 
sion. 

Minnesota Entire revision of all libra- 
ry laws. The new code will include cer- 
tification of librarians and state aid for 
libraries. 

Missouri Will introduce a. county libra- 
ry bill. They have their forces better or- 
ganized this year, and hope to secure the 
passing of the bill. 

Nebraska Asking for larger appropria- 
tions for Library Commission. 

North Dakota Will introduce a county 
library bill. 



Pennsylvania Reported that last Legis- 
lature changed the Library Commission 
from a separate Commission to a Library 
Extension Division of the State Library 
and Museum. They are asking for in- 
creased appropriation this year. 

Wisconsin Will introduce a bill for 
certification of librarians. 



Most library laws permit or require lev- 
ies of a certain "rate" on the dollar, or on 
the hundred dollars. In the Province of 
Ontario, Canada, a law recently enacted 
provides for a per capita basis for libra- 
ries. The city council, under this law, 
must levy a tax estimated to yield 50 
cents per capita if the library board so re- 
quests, and may, by vote, levy a rate that 
will yield 75 cents per capita. 

In the United States, many libraries re- 
ceive much more than 75 cents per cap- 
ita, while others receive far less than On- 
tario's minimum. 



A LIBRARY EFFICIENCY TEST 

Is your library paying dividends? 

To help any library board answer that 
question for its own library, a "Library 
efficiency test" has been prepared. 
(A. L. A. Headquarters, 25 cents.) It has 
been printed in 12 large pages, with blanks 
for the facts about the library in ques- 
tion. The main headings are: Building, 
Book collection, Local history material, 
Finances, Extension, Organization, Hours 
of opening, Publicity, Trustees, Staff, and 
Summary. 

The author, of the scheme, Miss Julia A. 
Robinson of the Iowa Library Commis- 
sion, says "it is suggested as a method by 
which a library board may be able to ex- 
amine its library and reach some conclu- 
sion as to whether it is paying sufficient 
dividends upon the investment made by 
the donors of the building and the tax- 
payers who are supporting it." 

Continuing, Miss Robinson says "The 
value of this test will depend upon the 



BULLETIN 



17 



amount of information possessed by the 
library board on library buildings, library 
administration and library matters in gen- 
eral, and can be used to best advantage in 
conference with a librarian conversant 
with these subjects. 

"The measure of the efficiency of any 
library must be the measure of its useful- 
ness, all else being plant and machinery 
and operations contributing to that end. 
Much of the usefulness of a library can- 
not be measured in figures but circula- 
tion is generally taken as the best method 
of showing the use of a library. 

"By it the increase or decrease in the 
books leaving the library can be shown 
as well as the per capita of books read by 
the population of the town. The latter 
furnishes a means of comparison between 
libraries, but this comparison is only use- 
ful for towns of the same size, as the per 
capita circulation increases with a de- 
crease in the size of a town. The same 
is true of the per capita income and the 
volumes per capita in the book collection." 



In Indiana the members of library 
boards have their own state organization, 
known as the Indiana Library Trustees 
Association. It meets annually, some- 
times at the same time and place as the 
Indiana Library Association, sometimes 
at a different time and place. Apparently 
it has been more successful than any 
trustees section of a state library associa- 
tion. The officers for 1920-21 are: Presi- 
dent, Edmond L. Craig, Evansville; secre- 
tary, M. H. Krauss, Hammond. 



SPECIAL RATES ON THE BOOKLIST 

Increased income and reduced costs will 
decrease the anticipated deficit of The 
Booklist in 1921 to less than $2,000. 

The Publishing Board wishes to elim- 
inate the deficit entirely, so that none of 
the income from the Carnegie Endowment 
will go into this practical and widely-used 
publication. It hopes to do this without 
further increase in price. 



The only feasible alternative is to get 
more subscribers. We now have over 
4,000. On the basis of present costs, 6,000 
will make it self-supporting. 

The Publishing Board has therefore de- 
cided to offer, from now until July 1st, 
a special rate of $1.50 for new subscriptions 
for the first year. 

Additional subscriptions placed by pres- 
ent subscribers will be accepted at the spe- 
cial rate.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



THE A. L. A. 1921 



Efforts have been made during the last 
several months to close or transfer all de- 
partments of Library War Service. 

Service to the army in the Canal Zone, 
Hawaiian Islands, Philippine Islands and 
Alaska, was transferred to the U. S. Army 
during the Autumn. 

Our work in the Coblenz area was trans- 
ferred to the army some weeks ago. Two 
librarians, Miss Ola M. Wyeth and Miss 
E. B. Steere, are continuing through Feb- 
ruary for the purpose of giving some in- 
struction to the army personnel. 

The work in Paris has been transferred 
to the Board of Directors of the American 
Library in Paris, Inc. Mr. Carlton and 
Miss Stephens will remain at least for 
some months. Some money previously ap- 
propriated by the A. L. A. for the Paris 
Library is still available, but not much. 
A campaign is now being conducted in 
Paris for several hundred thousand francs 
for annual maintenance and for endow- 
ment. 

Library service for the lighthouses and 
light ships was taken over by the Light- 
house Bureau of the government as of Oc- 
tober 1, 1920. 

The comparatively small amount of 
work which had been organized for the 
Coast Guard has been discontinued so far 
as the A, L. A. is concerned. The State 
Library Commissions are in many cases 
meeting the needs. 

The Merchant Marine Library Service 
is suspended. Steps are being taken by 
the Association and especially by Mrs. 
Henry Howard of the Social Service Bu- 
reau of the U. S. Merchant Marine, acting 
as the representative of the A. L. A., to 
create a new organization, which will re- 
new this service and carry it on indefi- 
nitely. 

The New York Dispatch office has been 
closed, all books having been distributed. 
The final distribution was made primarily 
to State Library Commissions. 

The Hospital Service is still in opera- 



tion under the A. L. A. and at A. L. A. 
War Service expense. It is being contin- 
ued from month to month in the hope that 
authority to carry this work may be given 
by Congress to the Public Health Service. 
Officials seem willing to take over the li- 
brary work and money is apparently avail- 
able for its maintenance. Legal authority 
is lacking. 



The Enlarged Program campaign is 
closed, the Executive Board having voted 
on December 18 that it "will not counte- 
nance any further appeals for Enlarged 
Program funds." But the Board author- 
ized the Treasurer to deposit such money 
as may hereafter be received on account 
of the Enlarged Program in the Books for 
Everybody Fund. 



And now for the future. 

The library profession has shown its 
keen interest lately in: 

Recruiting for Li'brarianship, 
Certification, 

An Employment Bureau at Head- 
quarters, and 
County Libraries. 

These, then, are the things in which the 
A. L. A., for a time, may be expected to 
show its greatest interest. 

Recruiting is preeminently a matter for 
the attention and interest of every indi- 
vidual librarian. Mr. Jennings' Committee 
on Recruiting is at work, however, and will 
soon be calling upon certain librarians to 
give special help. 

The Publishing Board has for a year 
been seeking a manuscript for a good pub- 
lication on this subject, but so far has not 
found what is needed. The Committee 
may produce it. Certainly something is 
needed perhaps two or three publications. 
And may we not hope that when they are 
published, a lot of copies, by some means 
or other, will be made available for free 
distribution? Here is a field for legiti- 
mate propaganda. 



BULLETIN 



19 



Certification may well 'be left to the 
Committee, with the hope that whatever 
progress is made will be reported prompt- 
ly for the benefit of the numerous state 
committees which are looking to the 
A. L. A. Committee for leadership and 
guidance. 

An Employment Bureau at Headquarters 
is coming. Whether it takes a few months 
or a few years to get it organized will de- 
pend largely (though not wholly of course) 
on the money available. A good employ- 
ment bureau, with adequate records kept 
constantly up-to-date will require more 
clerical service than is now available out 
of a two-dollar individual membership fee 
and a five-dollar institutional membership 
fee. 

County Libraries. No phase of library 
work is of so much interest to the gen- 
eral public and few subjects are of so 
much interest to librarians and library 
trustees. At Headquarters a need is felt 
for 

A leaflet for general distribution to the 

public by commissions, libraries and 

the A. L. A. (Now being prepared). 

A pamphlet on "Publicity material for a 

County Library Campaign." 
Posters and placards including reproduc- 
tions of maps, pictures, etc., which 
could be sold in sets for exhibit pur- 
poses, to all interested. 
A collection of pictures and facts about 
County Libraries, at Headquarters, for 
the use of librarians, editors of news- 
papers and magazines, and others in- 
terested. 
A careful study of county library laws 

with recommendations. 
A Handbook for county librarians. 
Here again we may hope for some means 
to be provided which will enable Head- 
quarters to distribute certain of the publi- 
cations free of charge, as for example at 
national conferences, and to individuals in 
states without library commissions. 



The Handbook and the Proceedings for 
1920 are in proof. We hope they will be 
ready for distribution in February.

ment fund, and members of the Council.

sons so nominated. 

No person shall be nominated as presi- 
dent or as first or second vice-president 
for two consecutive terms. No more than 
the required number of nominations shall

and residence of each nominee shall be 
given on the official ballot. 

State Representation in Council 
Sec. 7. Each state, provincial or re- 
gional library association or club having

Association or to commit the Association 
as such by any declaration of policy. 

Sec. 13. Provision shall be made by the 
Executive Board for sessions of the vari- 
ous sections at annual meetings of the As- 
sociation, and the programs for the same 
shall be prepared by the officers of sec- 
tions in consultation with the program 
committee. Sessions of sections shall be 
open to any member of the Association, 
but no person may vote in any section un- 
less registered as a member of the same. 
The registered members of each section 
shall, at the final session of each annual 
meeting, choose officers to serve until the 
close of the next annual meeting. 
Committee's Comment on Sections 9-13 

The Committee sees no reason to suggest 
a change in the provisions for sections which 
it recommended in its first report. It does 
not claim that these provisions solve the 
problem of the relations of the affiliated or- 
ganizations with the American Library As- 
sociation. It does suggest that they afford 
one solution of that problem, and that these 
By-Laws provide more definitely for the or- 
ganization of the existing sections than is 
provided in the present Constitution. If 
none of the affiliated organizations care to 
become sections of the American Library 
Association, it is perfectly possible that 
other organizations may 'wish to do so in 
the future, and Section 10 should therefore 
stand. Sections 11, 12 and 13 seem to the 
Committee advisable with reference to the 
organization and maintenance of the exist- 
ing sections or others which may be cre- 
ated. 

Sec. 14. There shall be a standing com- 
mittee of the Council consisting of four 
members, the chairman of which shall be 
the president of the Association, one mem- 



ber to be appointed each year by the presi- 
dent of the Association to serve for three 
years. This committee shall prepare pro- 
grams for Council meetings, and mail them 
to the Council in advance of the meetings. 
Standing Committees 

Sec. 15. The standing committees of the 
Association, which are to be appointed by 
the Executive Board, shall be as follows: 
Auditing (to consist of three members, to 
audit the accounts of the Executive Board, 
secretary, treasurer, assistant treasurer, 
trustees of the endowment fund and all 
committees having expenditure of mon- 
ey) ; editorial (a committee of five, whose 
duty shall be to secure and pass upon 
material for publication by the Associa- 
tion, especially catalogs, indexes and other 
bibliographic and library aids) ; public 
documents; cooperation with other educa- 
tional associations; library administra- 
tion; library training; international rela- 
tions; bookbuying; bookbinding; federal 
and state relations; publicity; library 
work in hospitals and charitable and cor- 
rectional institutions; work with the for- 
eign born; standardization of libraries 
and certification of librarians; travel, co- 
ordination; work with the blind; program 
(to consist of the president, secretary and 
one other member to be appointed by the 
president) ; improvement of conditions of 
library workers. 

Sec. IS. The Executive Board shall at 
each annual meeting of the Association 
appoint a committee of three on resolu- 
tions, which shall prepare and report to 
the Association suitable resolutions of ac- 
knowledgment and thanks. 

Votes by Correspondence 

Sec. 17. Approval in writing by a ma- 
jority of a board or committee shall have 
the force of a vote, provided not more 
than one member expresses dissent. If 
one member dissents, the vote shall not 
be effective until such member has had 
opportunity to communicate his views to 
the other members and a second vote has 
been taken. If two members, on the sec- 
ond mail vote, dissent, the action shall 
fail.

Consider and Act 



Have you stopped to consider what you owe to the found- 
ers of the American Library Association ? 

We owe to them and the Association which they estab- 
lished, the standardization of library methods, the opportunity 
for standardized training, the recognition of our work as a 
profession, the broadening of the scope of library work, the 
constant interchange of valuable ideas, the channel through 
which the inexperienced can come into vital contact with the 
experienced. 

If you are not a member of the A. L. A. do you not feel 
indebted to your professional organization to the extent of the 
small membership fee ? 

If you are a member, the A. L. A. claims your allegiance 
to the extent of any reasonable effort on your part to induce 
your co-workers to become members. 

The Membership Committee urge you to read thoughtfully 
the message of the President on the last page of the Novem- 
ber Bulletin. 

We are hoping for a 100% membership in all of the large 
libraries; we expect effective co-operation from every State 
Association and Library Club. We want the virus of enthu- 
siasm to work in every person employed in the Library field. 

Let us all pull together, for the A. L. A. is worthy of our 
support. 

THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE. 
GRATIA A. COUNTRYMAN, Chairman.

POINTS OF INTEREST, SWAMPSCOTT 
AND VICINITY 

Swampsoott, a typical old-time village, 
is twelve miles from Boston, and one of 
the most exclusive sections of the North 
Shore of Massachusetts. It is on the Bos- 
ton & Maine R. R., about a mile beyond 
Lynn. It may be reached from Boston by 
motor via Revere Beach and through 
Lynn, over the Metropolitan Parkway sys- 
tem, which follows the water practically 
all the way. Train service is frequent, 
time required about thirty minutes. 

Puritan Road, on which the New Ocean 
House is situated, is a continuation of the 
Shore Boulevard, established in 1629. This 
is the. oldest and most famous highway 
along the North Shore, and was originally 
the Indian trail called The Path of Peace. 
Aside from the beautiful summer resi- 
dences and the fishing colony, Swamp- 
scott itself has few points of particular 
interest. One exception is the old Hum- 
phrey House, at 99 Paradise Road, the old- 
est house in New England, built and oc- 
cupied by Assistant Governor John Hum- 
phrey previous to 1637, possibly in 1634. 

The following are some of the places of 
interest in the vicinity of Swampscott: 



MARBLEHEAD world famous for its 
fine harbor and as the yachting center of 
the New England coast. Home of the 
Eastern and Corinthian Yacht Clubs. Well 
worth a visit for its picturesque old houses 
and narrow streets. Distance five miles. 

NAHANT noted for its beautiful scen- 
ery. Formerly the summer home of the 
poet Longfellow and the historians Mot- 
ley and Prescott. Present home of Sen- 
ator Henry Cabot Lodge. Distance two 
miles. 

LYNN WOODS a magnificent tract of 
wild woodland under the supervision of 
the Lynn Park Commissioners. Distance 
four miles. 

SALEM quaint historic town founded 
in 1626. Has many relics of Old New 
England days and numerous fine old co- 
lonial houses. "The Witch House" and 
"House of the Seven Gables" may still 
be seen here. Distance four miles. 

REVERE BEACH a modern seaside re- 
sort for the people. The Coney Island of 
Massachusetts. Distance five miles. 

BEVERLY a historic North Shore set- 
tlement, containing many beautiful sum- 
mer homes. Distance six miles. 

PRIDES CROSSING one of 'the most 
beautiful sections along the North Shore. 
The home of many wealthy summer visit- 
ors including the magnificent estate of the 
late Henry C. Frick. Distance ten miles. 

MANCHESTER famous for its summer 
visitors of international reputation. The 
summer quarters of several foreign em- 
bassies and legations. Home of the Essex 
Country Club, one of the oldest and most 
exclusive in New England. Distance eigh- 
teen miles. 

DANVERS has many Colonial Homes 
of historic interest. "Oak Knolls" sur- 
rounded by great trees, where the Quaker 
Poet John Greenleaf Whittier spent most 
of his later years, may still be seen. In 
nearby Topsfield are found many types of 
Old New England architecture. Distance 
fifteen miles. 

MAGNOLIA fashionable resort, popu- 
lar as the shopping center for the wealthy 



BULLETIN 



29 



summer colony of the North Shore. Prac- 
tically all the exclusive New York shops 
are represented. Here the A. L. A. met in 
1902. Distance twenty miles. 

LEXINGTON where the famous Revo- 
lutionary battle was fought. The rough 
boulder on Lexington Common, appropri- 
ately inscribed with the words of Captain 
Parker, marks the line of the "Minute 
Men" who accelerated the retreat of the 
British to Boston. Lexington is excessive- 
ly rich in historic sites. Distance twenty- 
five miles. 

CONCORD home of patriots, scholars, 
philosophers. The first battleground of 
the Revolutionary War (The Old North 
Bridge), marked by the graves of British 
soldiers, the old monument and the newer 
statue of the "Minute Man." In the Old 
Manse nearby Hawthorne lived during the 
first four years of his married life. Near- 
by are the homes of Emerson and Louisa 
Alcott. Distance twenty-seven miles. 

SUDBURY where the Wayside Inn is 
situated, made famous by the poet Long- 
fellow in his "Tales of the Wayside Inn." 
Washington and Lafayette were among its 
honored guests. It still retains its old air 
of hospitality and the public rooms con- 
tain interesting relics. Distance thirty 
miles. 

METHUEN the peaceful village of 
Methuen, a suburb of Lawrence, dates 
back to 172&. Men of Methuen took ac- 
tive part in the Battle of Bunker Hill. To- 
day along the Spicket River and on "Meet- 
ing House Hill" there are many lovely 
spots and historic homes. Distance twen- 
ty-five miles. 

GLOUCESTER the greatest fishing 
port in America, settled in 1623. Glouces- 
ter fishing schooners are celebrated for 
their yacht-like lines, their sailing quali- 
ties and their general seaworthiness. One 
of the most delightful motor trips, boule- 
vards and parkways practically the entire 
way. Distance twenty-five miles. 

PLYMOUTH the landing place of the 
Pilgrims, is rich in lore of Old New Eng- 
land. Within the town are Plymouth 



Rock, the site of the first house built in 
America, and in Pilgrim Hall, a splendid 
collection of authentic relics of the May- 
flower. Distance fifty miles. 

Of the above points of interest the lo- 
cal committee hopes to arrange tor a large 
party visit to Plymouth, probably on 
Sunday, June 26, either by steamer or spe- 
cial train; also a motor excursion on some 
day during the conference, to cover Lex- 
ington, Concord, and return, if possible, via 
the Wayside Inn at Sudbury. An auto 
trip along the North Shore to Marblehead 
and Beverly, will, it is hoped, be provided 
on one of the afternoons during confer- 
ence week. 

The White Mountains of New Hampshire, 
famous for their beauty and as a tourist 
resort for New England people, are about 
one hundred miles north of Swampscott. 
Should applications be received from twen- 
ty-five or more persons desiring to spend 
a week in the White Mountain region, Mr. 
Faxon will plan and conduct a post-con- 
ference party, spending about three days 
in Jackson, whence trips would be made 
to North Conway, Intervale, Upper Bart- 
lett, and Crawford Notch. Leaving Jack- 
son, party would go by motor to Randolph, 
N. H., for a three-days' stay, and from 
that headquarters an all-day trip would be 
taken covering Bretton Woods (Mount 
Washington Hotel), Profile Lake, and the 
Flume of Franconia, returning through 
Jefferson. Opportunity would also be 
available for mountain climbing at both 
Jackson and Randolph. Cost of a trip 
covering from Monday, June 27, to Mon- 
day, July 4, including railroad, hotel room 
and meals, and motor trips as outlined 
above, would be $58.00 for the eight. days. 

TRAVEL NOTICE 

No reduced railroad rates will be pos- 
sible from New England points to Swamp- 
scott next June, but there is a possibility 
that lines beyond New England may make 
either a summer-excursion fare or grant 
our convention a certificate-plan rate 
which will be approximately a little more 



30 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



than a fare and one-half from Middle-West- 
ern and Southern points, and slightly less 
than two one-way fares from New York 
and Pennsylvania points. If certificate- 
plan tickets are granted it means that 
delegates must return home by route over 
which they came, starting within three 
days of the end of the convention. 

Swampscott is a mile beyond Lynn, on 
the Boston & Maine R. R. and the North 
Station in Boston, from which the Boston 
& Maine starts, is across the city from the 
South Station, to which delegates would 
come arriving over Boston & Albany 
(N. Y. Central) or New York, New Haven 
& Hartford R. R. (the Pennsylvania R. R. 
connection). The Boston Elevated railway 
operates shuttle trains between the North 
and South stations. 

At Swampscott the hotels are about one 
mile to a mile and one-half from Swamp- 
scott station, and motor-bus service must 
be used costing 50c one way for each pas 
senger, and 60c for trunk.

CHICAGO PARTY 

(Statement by John F. Phelan, Chicago 
Public Library) 

Following the custom of former years, 
a special. train out of Chicago is planned, 
providing a sufficient number (125) signify 
their intention of joining the special par- 
ty. 

Should we fail to meet the railroad re- 
quirement for special service, separate 
Pullman sleepers will be provided, to be 
attached to regular train for the accom- 
modation of those who register with the 
travel committee before June 10th. 

Railroad rates will be the important fac- 
tor in determining the choice of routes, 
and it is hoped to announce these in a 
later Bulletin. 

As this Bulletin goes to press an an- 
nouncement of special railroad rates has 
been received. See page 35. 

COMMERCIAL EXHIBITS 

Space for commercial exhibits will be 
available in unlimited proportions on the 
main or office floor of the New ^Ocean 
House. Applications should be made di- 
rectly to the management of the hotel. 
Price will be determined on basis of 
amount of space requested up to May 1st. 
Rate will vary from $3.00 to $5.00 per 
running foot for the entire meeting. No 
less than six feet will be considered. 

COMMITTEES 

The program committee for the confer- 
ence consists of the President, First Vice- 
President and Secretary. 

The members of the local committee 
are

February. Fifteen are institutional mem- 
bers, eleven are trustees, eighteen are 
library school students. Six annual mem- 
bers have become life members. 

In January the new members numbered 
one hundred forty-six; in February, one 
hundred seventy. 

The libraries showing the largest num- 
bers of new members are: 

St. Louis 34

AST. LOUIS local A. L. A. meeting 
was held in the St. Louis Public Li- 
brary on February 2d. About 60 invita- 
tions were sent out and 54 A. L. A. mem- 
bers were present. The purpose of the 
meeting was "to discuss measures for in- 
creasing the membership and influence of 
the A. L. A. in this locality." 

Some of the objects that might be ac- 
complished by means of a local association 
of A. L. A. members were listed as fol- 
lows: 

1. To represent St. Louis to and at the 

A. L. A. 

2. To represent the A. L. A. in St. 

Louis. 

3. For mutual improvement 

4. For mutual acquaintance. 

5. To swell A. L. A. membership auto- 

matically. 

6. To increase library salaries. 

7. To better library service. 

8. To increase local library prestige. 

9. To recruit for librarianship. 

10. To promote inter-library comity. 

The following resolution was unani- 
mously adopted: 

RESOLVED: That the Executive Board 
of the American Library Association be 
informed of the present meeting of 54 
members of the Association living in and 
near St. Louis, and of the intention of the 
participants to hold other similar meet- 
ings in the future; and that the Board be 
asked to give its formal sanction to such 
meetings and to advise how they may best 
be held. 

The following committee was appointed 
to call another meeting and to recommend 
a form of organization: Mr. W. L. R. Gif- 
ford, librarian of the Mercantile Library, 
chairman; Miss Bella Steuernagel, libra- 
rian of the Belleville, 111., Public library; 
Mrs. Harriet P. Sawyer, principal of the 
St. Louis Library School. 

HOW Many members by May 1st? 
In the .May Bulletin we expect to 
print a list of all new members. It will 
be a sort of supplement to the Handbook, 
1920, which was corrected to January 1st. 
The inclusion of a name on that list 
will be worth something to any library

assistant or librarian. Please pass the 
word along. 

And do not forget your trustees. The 
A. L. A. needs the strength which comes 
from members not actively engaged in 
library work. 

Copies of the leaflet "Why Join the 
A. L. A.?" and the membership applica- 
tion blank, will be sent in quantity for dis- 
tribution, on request. 

THE announcements of A. L. A. publi- 
cations to he found on pages 36-39 in 
this issue are worthy of special attention. 
Pour new editions of important pamphlets 
have been issued since January first; also 
the County Library leaflet and a reading 
list for the New Voter. 

The most important publication is Book- 
list Books, 1920. 

Miss Alice I. Hazeltine's "Plays for 
Children," will be needed in every libra- 
ry. It is in the printer's hands now but 
will probably not be ready for distribution 
before some time in April. 

Suggestions for new publications are al- 
ways welcome. 

T^MNANCIAL reports are being published 
JP regularly in the Bulletin. They are 
purposely made brief and concise. Fur- 
ther information will be sent to any mem- 
ber on request. Those who are sufficiently 
interested will find it possible to check 
the current reports of receipts and ex- 
penditures against the budgets which ap- 
peared in the January Bulletin and the 
Supplementary War Fund budget in this 
number. 

Two comprehensive reports have been 
compiled showing receipts and expendi- 
tures (1) of the War Funds from 1917 to 
January 1, 1921, and (2) of the Enlarged 
Program Funds to January, 1921. The 
treasurer expects to have them printed as 
soon as they have been examined by the 
auditors. 



FACTS FOR TRUSTEES 

THE president of a library board re- 
cently expressed the opinion that the 
time has come for compulsory library leg- 
islation. His argument was, that many 
backward towns and counties will 1 not 
have majorities in favor of libraries for a 
generation; that libraries are necessary 
educational institutions and should be pro- 
vided even for minorities; that education 
is a matter of interest to all the state; 
and therefore, that the state should re- 
quire the maintenance of at least a mini- 
mum of library service for every urban 
and rural community. 

Another man, an educator of national 
prominence (but not a librarian) said, a 
few weeks ago in a public address, that he 
thought the state should give financial aid 
to libraries as it now gives money to 
schools. And it was evident that he had 
in mind, not a mere pittance, such as is 
now provided for in certain states, but 
large sums, sums that will make it pos- 
sible for libraries to become much more 
important factors in the field of voluntary 
education than they have ever been in the 
past. 

/TTAHREE chapters of special interest to 
JL library trustees will be found in "A 
Library Primer," by John Cotton Dana of 
Newark, N. J., a new edition of which has 
just been issued by Library Bureau. They 
are "Trustees: What they should and 
should not do"; "Rules or by-laws for a 
board of trustees," and "The librarian: 
Note for trustees and friends of your li- 
brary." The whole book is surprisingly 
interesting for a "primer." 

SALARY standards for librarians may 
almost be said not to exist. A new 
library board in Virginia, noting this fact, 
has adopted the standards of the local 
school board. The result is highly satis- 
factory to the library employees, so satis- 
factory that they urge similar action by 
library boards everywhere.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



EMPLOYMENT WORK AT HEADQUAR- 
TERS 

AT THE date of writing about one hun- 
dred and fifty people are registered 
at A. L. A. Headquarters as available for 
positions, library school and non-library 
school graduates being about equally rep- 
resented. The registrants are from all 
parts of the country and present experi- 
ence in all kinds of library work. 

The demand has lessened somewhat for 
librarians for business libraries but has 
steadily increased for librarians in most 
other fields. The greatest need is for 
catalogers. While there are numerous 
opportunities for reference librarians, 
general assistants, and children's librari- 
ans, possibly with the exception of the 
last the dearth of available people is no 
where nearly so marked as in cataloging 
work. 

Salaries offered as a rule are adequate 
for the positions to be filled, working con- 
ditions are excellent in the majority of 
instances, and open positions are not con- 
fined to any one part of the country or to 
large libraries. Many small libraries have 
secured librarians through the offices of 
the A. L. A. Sometimes, and always when 
desired, suggestions are made through the 
secretary of the State Library Commis- 
sion. 

The mail handled at the employment 
desk gives a reflection of what is being 
done. One day recently requests were re- 
ceived for recommendations for twenty- 
five positions, four people registered and 
forty-five letters relative to employment 
went out. 

Inquiries are frequently coming in as to 
positions which will give opportunity for 
some formal library training, positions in 
a college library permitting time for car- 
rying some college work, and positions in 
large libraries where apprentice training 
may be received. 

Although as yet A. L. A. Headquarters 
is inadequately equipped to do extensive 
employment work, it is nevertheless glad 



to be of service to libraries needing assist- 
ants and to librarians desiring change of 
positions. To the best of its present abil- 
ity placement work is going steadily on. 

The following are typical. For infor- 
mation concerning them address A. L. A. 
Headquarters. 

Wanted A children's librarian hi a small 
town library. Salary $1,200. Work is 
well organized but capable of extension. 
School work is important part. 

Wanted Assistant cataloger in University 
library. 

Wanted Position as head cataloger, by a 
library school graduate who has had 
broad cataloging experience and who 
reads five languages. Salary depend- 
ent upon location and work. 

Wanted Position as librarian of a town 
library where there is an opportunity to 
do extension work. Experience has been 
very general, but limited to one library. 



TO CATALOGERS 

Catalog Section of the A. L. A. is 
JL most anxious to have a complete list 
of the catalogers of the country, and takes 
this means of getting a registration. Please 
send your name, address, position, educa- 
tion, training, experience, special line of 
work, etc., including, if you will, salary 
received and position and salary desired. 
If the information is sent . on a catalog 
card, preferably typewritten, with name in- 
verted for filing, the aid will be appre- 
ciated. Address Ellen M. Chandler, chair- 
man Catalog Section A. L. A., Buffalo Pub- 
lic Library, Buffalo, N. Y. 



Surely cataloging should have a strong 
appeal to young men and women just en- 
tering the profession. It offers an op- 
portunity for interesting constructive work 
in a field requiring vision and technical 
ability combined, as well as a knowledge 
of books and people and of methods for 
bringing ihe two together. 

The importance of the catalog in mak- 
ing the resources of the library available 
should bring to its construction some of 
the best ability of the library profession.

NOMINATING COMMITTEE 

The executive board of the A. L. A. has 
appointed the following nominating com- 
mittee: 

P. L. Windsor, University of Illinois 
library, Urbana, chairman. 

June Donnelly, Simmons College library, 
Boston. 

Theresa Hitchler, Public library, Brook- 
lyn,

SPECIAL RATES GRANTED 

As this Bulletin goes to press word is re- 
ceived that the Trunk Line Association, 
Passenger Department, has decided to sell 
round-trip tickets for the A. L. A. confer- 
ence from points in New York, New Jersey, 
Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, 
West Virginia, most of Pennsylvania, and 
part of Virginia. 

The rate of one and one-half fare to west- 
ern gateways of New England Passenger 
Association Territory, plus double the one 
way fare therefrom, will be available to 
members of the A. L. A. and dependent 
members of their families, when identifica- 
tion certificates are presented. Those who 
take advantage of this rate must go and re- 
turn by same route and must reach orig- 
inal starting point not later than June 30, 
1921. Tickets will be on sale June 18th, 
to 20th. 

It is hoped that other passenger associa- 
tions will grant similar rates, but it is not 
expected that any rates icill be granted in 
New England territory. 



"The therapeutic value of books has be- 
come steadily more recognized, largely due 
to the fine work during the war and there- 
after by the American Library Association, 
a work which is still being kept up in 
many places. Physicians, both in their pri- 
vate practice and in hospital work are giv- 
ing more recognition to the fact that the 
right book at the right time can become a 
real factor in health building."

I 



What Does It Mean to Me P 

FT OR centuries librarians lived a subterranean existence, isolated, de- 
1* tached from all the great movements going on in the world, almost in 
a state of revery. In 1876 they realized that they were a profession and 
organized the American Library Association. During the world war, they 
made their conscious professional spirit the motive power which created 
and carried out successfully a comprehensive library service to the en- 
listed men in the Army and Navy of the United States. The A. L. A. is 
the embodiment of this conscious professional spirit. There is not a 
group of scientists, a learned profession, nor a line of business that does 
not have its national organization which is known and supported from 
Portland, Maine, to Los Angeles, California, and from Duluth to New 
Orleans. 

There is a threefold reason, therefore, why Librarians should have a 
strong national Association for they combine and represent all three In- 
terests, the scientific, the professional, and the business. Let there be 
as many local and special organizations as you please, but unless we 
have one strong national organization we shall fail to exert the influ- 
ence in the nation which it is now our right and duty to exert. 

It has been iterated and reiterated until it has become worse than 
trite that every librarian should join the A. L. A. and one hears all too 
frequently the response "Why should I join the A. L. A.? What has the 
A. L. A. done for me?" 

My own experience gives an excellent answer to both questions. I 
joined the A. L. A. from the simplest of motives, a desire to meet men and 
women of my own profession and to find out what others were thinking 
and doing. At first my progress was slow but this was because of lack of 
acquaintanceship. Now, however, I realize that I got out of the Associa- 
tion a thousandfold what I brought to it. I like to believe that the little 
I have contributed has aided in a like result to other members of the As- 
sociation. If this is so it can only be because it has been added to the 
contributions of a thousand others made possible by the American Library 
Association. 

To the younger members of the profession, to all who are not mem- 
bers of the A. L. A. I would say join at once. Join not merely by paying 
the initiation fee and dues but join with heart and soul. There is nothing 
you can do, as a first step, which will so advance the profession. 

Libraries as such, and other institutions interested in library advance- 
ment, such as schools, colleges, and learned societies which depend upon 
libraries for the preservation and diffusion of the results of their labors, 
should subscribe to institutional membership, and thus secure the infor- 
mation and service now available at headquarters. This service is ad- 
visory to those needing assistance. It covers the duties of an employment 
bureau, and offers a series of publications of the greatest professional in- 
terest. To these should be added, the indirect service of fostering a high 
professional standard.

First Vice-President.

usually attractive. 

Dr. George Edward Woodberry will de- 
liver the address of welcome at the open- 
ing session Monday evening. 

Judge Towner, member of Congress 
from Iowa, and well known among 
librarians and other educators for his con- 
nection with the Smith-Towner educa- 
tional bill, will speak at the A. L. A. Gen- 
eral Session on Wednesday, June 22, on 
"Libraries and the nation." 

Dr. K. L. Butterfleld, President of Mas- 
sachusetts Agriculture College at Am- 
herst, and one of the most prominent 
speakers and writers in America on the 
Country Life movement, will speak at a 
General Session Saturday morning on

their works. 

There will be more than 50 separate 
meetings during the week and al- 
most every conceiveable library topic will 
be under discussion. 

The Hotel and surroundings are un- 
usually attractive, and the opportunities 
for pleasant sight seeing excursions are 
almost unlimited. Several special trips 
are being planned and will be "personally 
conducted" by the Local Committee. One 
or two of them will be free. 

The manager of the New Ocean House 
writes (two months before the Confer- 
ence) that the rooms are fast being taken.

plete. It is expected that the main topics 
will be the correlation of library courses 
and standards in libraries, probably dis- 
cussed from the point of view of the li- 
brary school, the librarian and the as- 
sistant. Besides this there will be reports 
of the work and discussion of the plans 
for the coming year.

TRAVEL AND HOTEL ANNOUNCEMENTS 



Special Rates 

A special A. L. A. round trip ticket will 
be on sale to Swampscott, Massachusetts, 
from points (except New England) east 
of and including Chicago, Peoria, Burling- 
ton, Iowa, and St. Louis, and north of the 
Ohio and Potomac Rivers, including 
Wheeling and Louisville. These are on 



sale June 18th to 20th. They are avail- 
able only to members and their families. 
The price of these tickets is one and one- 
half fares from starting point to gateways 
of New England, plus twice the one way 
fare in New England. This will be equal 
to a saving over double the one-way fare 
of from fifteen to twenty dollars from Chi- 



50 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



cago and St. Louis, and a less saving from 
points east of those cities. 

These tickets require return by the same 
route used going, and return must start 
not later than June 28th, reaching destina- 
tion before midnight of June 30th. 

SPECIAL NOTE: To obtain this A.L.A. 
round trip ticket, members must send 25c 
(stamps acceptable) to the A. L. A. Head- 
quarters, 78 East Washington St., Chicago, 
and obtain IDENTIFICATION CERTIFICATE (one 
certificate is sufficient for delegate and de- 
pendent members of his family). This cer- 
tificate must be presented to Ticket Agent 
at station of departure, and he will then 
issue a round trip ticket to Swampscott. 
The return portion of this ticket is to be 
validated at Swampscott depot on date of 
return, between June 20th and 28th inclu- 
sive. 

No A. L. A. reduced rates are granted in 
New England, or from Canada, Southern 
United States, or points west of Chicago, 
and St. Louis. Delegates from South and 
West should purchase tickets to nearest 
city from which reduction is made and 
then obtain, by presenting their Identifica- 
tion Certificate, the round trip reduced 
fare ticket. 

Please note carefully that those desir- 
ing to stay in New England longer than 
June 28th, or wishing to return by differ- 
ent routes or stop over on way home, can- 
not use the special A. L. A. ticket. 

Railroad fares and prices of Pullman 
berths are given below. 

Local Travel Information 

Swampscott is about thirty minutes' 
ride from Boston, on Boston and Maine 
railroad from North Station, Boston. All 
Swampscott trains also stop at Lynn, which 
is about a mile and one-half before reach- 
ing Swampscott. Trolleys marked either 
Swampscott, Beach Bluff or Marblehead 
run direct from Lynn depot to the New 
Ocean House Assembly Hall, at back of 
Hotel grounds, passing the Willey House, 
and those marked Beach Bluff or Marble- 
head go on past Bellevue Hotel. Cars run 
every seven minutes, and fare is about 



seven cents if tickets (fifteen for $1) are 
purchased. Persons coming for day meet- 
ings will find the use of trolley from Lynn 
the easy way, as Swampscott depot is a 
mile from the hotel, and bus fare one way 
is 50 cents. 

For Hotel Preston, which is not on the 
trolley line, delegates will go to Swamp- 
scott depot and there take bus, and all 
those booked at the New Ocean House 
who have heavy suit cases are advised also 
to go to Swampscott depot and take the 
bus, as the trolley from Lynn passing the 
back of the New Ocean House grounds, 
would leave a distance equal to about three 
city blocks from trolley to New Ocean 
House office. 

Delegates arriving at South Station, 
Boston (Boston and Albany, or New York, 
New Haven and Hartford Railroads) will 
find an elevated train service between 
South and North Stations, fare (as on all 
Boston trolleys) 10 cents. Allow about 
twenty minutes for connection from South 
Station to North Station trains. 

The Local A. L. A. Committee will have 
guides both at Swampscott depot and at 
New Ocean House to direct delegates to 
their destinations, and all who register 
will be notified in advance of hotel or 
house address to which they are assigned. 

Chicago Special Party Chicago and the 
West 

Arrangements have been completed with 
the New York Central Railroad for special 
party service out of Chicago, leaving the 
LaSalle Station, LaSalle and Van Buren 
Streets, on Sunday morning, June 19th at 
10:25 o'clock (Standard time, one hour 
later than Chicago daylight saving time), 
arriving in Toledo at 3:35 p.m., Cleve- 
land at 7:00 p.m. Monday morning at 
5:57, Albany is reached, and arriving in 
Troy at 7:00 a.m., where connections will 
be made with the Boston and Maine rail- 
road for the journey across country to Bos- 
ton, arriving there at 3:10 p.m., where 
transfer will be made to local service to 
Swampscott, arriving at 4:28 p.m. 



BULLETIN 



Upon arrival in Swampscott, busses and 
automobiles will be on hand to effect an 
immediate transfer of all members of the 
party, and their baggage, to the various 
hotels, allowing ample time to prepare for 
the opening session of the Conference, 
which is scheduled for 8 o'clock Monday 
evening. 

Shortly after leaving Troy, the train en- 
ters the famous Hoosac Tunnel, through 
which all trains are now electrically op- 
erated. This is the longest tunnel on the 
American continent. From portal to por- 
tal the distance is four and three quarter 
miles. Leaving the tunnel, the Deerfleld 
Valley stretches out before you, which 
teems with fascinating points of interest 
and beauty; its hills and mountains rise to 
varying heights from 1,200 to 2,000 feet, 
and each elevation offers an ever-enchant- 
ing, ever-changing panoramic surprise of 
scenery. 

Railroad Rates and Pullman Fares 

See the paragraph under "Special Rates" 
above, and the table of rates given below. 

Round trip tickets and regular one-way 
tickets for those members intending to 
join the special party, must be routed via 
the New York Central and Boston and 
Maine railroads. 

There is still a possibility that summer 
tourist rates may be available to Swamp- 
scott or Boston. If such rates are offered, 
due announcement will be made in the 
library periodicals. 

Members traveling at the expense of 
city, state or federal government, who are 
entitled to tax exemption, are requested to 
file claim slips when sending Pullman de- 
posit, and present slips when purchasing 
railroad tickets. 

Information regarding other routes and 
rates will be furnished upon application 
to John F. Phelan, Chicago Public Library, 
Chicago. 
Dining Car Service: 

Dining car service will be regulated so 
as to avoid confusion and unnecessary 
waiting. Meals will be served a-la-carte. 



Members are expected to co-operate bj 
promptly leaving the dining car, upon com 
pletion of their meals. 
Baggage : 

Identification tags will be furnished to 
all those who register for the special par- 
ty, on which please write your name, and 
name of the hotel at which you are regis- 
tered, and attach one to each piece of bag- 
gage, including hand luggage required en 
route. This will facilitate handling and 
transfer upon arrival. 
Finally 

The committee urges an early registra- 
tion. We trust that members from Chi- 
cago, the Middle West and the far West 
and North, who plan to attend the con- 
vention, will arrange their affairs and time 
to join the special party from Chicago. 

The younger librarians, those who are 
looking forward to the thrill of their first 
conference, are especially urged to join 
our party, for they will not be strangers 
ere they reach Swampscott. Aside from 
the experience and the inspiration that 
awaits them at the Conference, an un- 
usual opportunity will be afforded to visit 
the many places of historic interest in 
and about Boston, and to visit and study 
the work of the great libraries in the 
East. 

Please register your name with, and ad- 
dress all correspondence relative to the 
Chicago party, to John F. Phelan, Chicago 
Public Library, Chicago. 

Eastern and Southern Travel Arrange- 
ments 

From New York to Boston many differ- 
ent routes are possible. The shortest and 
quickest is by rail via New Haven, New 
London and Providence. A second rail- 
route reaches Boston over the Boston & 
Albany, running via New Haven, Hartford 
and Springfield. The one-way fare from 
New York to Boston over each of these 
routes is $8.92, including war tax. (To 
Swampscott, $9.43). There are also sev- 
eral routes available from New York to 
Boston by boat one by the Cape Cod 



52 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



route and a second by the Fall River line. 
The Cape Cod boats leave New York at 
5:00 p.m. and reach Boston about 8:00 
a.m. State rooms run from $2.70 to $8.64, 
including war tax. The Fall River line 
leaves New York at 4:50 p.m. Change is 
made at Fall River in the morning for 
the train for Boston. The fare over either 
boat route is $6.78. 

On account of the short trip and the 
many different routes, no party arrange- 
ments will be made from New York to 
Boston. 

From Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washing- 
ton and points south, the most convenient 
arrangement is to take the Pennsylvania 
through trains direct from Washington to 
Boston. These trains run with through 
Pullmans and do not require change in 
New York City. The morning train leaves 
Washington at 8:15 a.m., and is due in 
Boston at 7:58 p.m. The night train 
leaves at 7:30 p.m., due in Boston 7:58 
a. m. 

Special Pullmans will be reserved for 
A. L. A. members, on the train leaving 
Washington at 7:30 p.m., Baltimore 8:35, 
Wilmington at 10:08 and West Philadel- 
phia at 10:45, Sunday evening, June 19th. 
The amount of Pullman fare, as given in 
the table below, should be forwared to C. 
H. Brown, Bureau of Navigation, Sixth 
Division, Navy Department, Washington, 
D. C., by June 15th. The Pullman ticket 
will be forwarded by return mail. Ar- 
rangements will be made for a special 
coach on the Boston & Maine, leaving Bos- 
ton for Swampscott. The party will be 
personally conducted by Mr. Brown. Mr. 
Brown will be glad to furnish any infor- 
mation desired as to time tables, rates, 
etc., whether individuals wish to join the 
A. L. A. party or travel individually. 

It is recommended that members travel- 
ling individually from New York and 
points south to Boston make their reser- 
vations early. The trains are crowded 
during the last two weeks of June, on ac- 
count of the closing of the universities 
and the opening of the summer resorts. 



It is recommended especially that those 
who desire to go by boat from New York 
to Boston, make their reservations before 
June 5th. The boats are usually sold out 
weeks in advance. 

The following table gives the approxi- 
mate one way fare; also the Pullman 
lower berth rate and the round trip rail- 
road rate based on A. L. A. identification 
card. Unfortunately the special rates 
granted by the railroads do not effect any 
saving between New York and Boston. 
The saving from Washington and points 
South on A. L. A. rates is approximately 
$4, with a somewhat less saving from 
Philadelphia and Baltimore. 

For railroad tickets on through Pull- 
man, Philadelphia and points South to Bos- 
ton, approximately $1.00 should be added 
to above fares and tickets should read: 
"via Hellgate route." As these tickets will 
avoid necessity of change in New York, 
it is believed that the comfort of through 
Pullmans is worth the additional charge.

BULLETIN 



53 



Hotels, Outside Rooms and Meals 

The schedule of rates at the various 
hotels was printed in full in the March 
A. L. A. Bulletin. They are all Ameri- 
can plan, including meals. 

For rooms in hotels and cottages apply 
to A. L. A., care New Ocean House, 
Swampscott, Mass. For rooms in private 
houses, write Mr. C. E. Sherman, Public 
Library, Lynn, Mass. Make application 
at once if you have not already done so. 

Although it is the desire of the local 
committee, thinking only of the greatest 
good to the greatest number, to have three 
persons in as many as possible of the 
rooms at the New Ocean House, there will 
be no overcrowding. The rooms are large, 
the dining room is ample, the piazza is 
wide and the lobby of most generous pro- 
portions. The Hotel is accustomed to con- 
ventions and the standing of this Hotel 
insures adequate service. Therefore, the 
words "herding of delegates" and "dormi- 
tory conditions" are absolutely non-applic- 
able to this Conference. 

Meals for those at private houses will 
be provided in the New Ocean House Cafe- 
teria; breakfast 50 cents; lunch 75 cents; 
dinner $1 and these meals will also be 
available for those coming down for the 
day only. A few persons beyond those 
roomed in the New Ocean House and its 
five cottages can be accommodated in the 
main dining room, lunch $1.50, dinner $2.50. 

A special rate for their annual dinner 
will be granted to those not registered at 
the New Ocean House who are members 
of any state or library school organiza- 
tion. Advance arrangements must be 
made for such groups and tickets distrib- 
uted by the committees in charge. 

A coupon ticket system for all taking 
meals in the main dining room will be 
maintained, and no admission to the room 
without proper ticket will be granted 
either to those guests of the Hotel or from 
outside. 

It should be stated that the Bellevue 
Hotel is inland and the ocean cannot be 
seen. Hotel Preston is on a bluff directly 



overlooking the water. The Willey House 
and cottages, near Swampscott Village, are 
just across the state boulevard from the 
shore. 

Up to May 1st applications received 
numbered about 375 and the rooming 
committee urges all others who have not 
yet written to do so at once. The best 
chance at headquarters' hotel is now the 
room for three persons either with or 
without bath; or two rooms, bath between, 
for six. Although it has been announced 
that preference will be given to those from 
outside New England, the Committee wants 
all applicants listed at the earliest possi- 
ble moment, and those from Massachu- 
setts and other New England points will 
now please write at once for hotel rooms. 

Rooms in private houses are about all 
spoken for, and any available from now 
on will be beyond walking distance from 
headquarters. 

Post Conference Trip to White Mountains 
(Register with Mr. Faxon before June 

10th) 

The "White Hills" of New Hampshire, 
long famous for their beauty, and the 
source of many an interesting legend, 
offer a charming and restful Post-Confer- 
ence vacation. The eight-day trip out- 
lined below, planned and conducted by 
Mr. F. W. Faxon, for many years familiar 
with this district, will give to strangers 
a good general idea of the whole region, 
and to former visitors a chance to renew 
old acquaintances under the exceptionally 
delightful auspices of an A. L. A. jour- 
ney. While the Rocky Mountains are in- 
spiring and grand in their ruggedness, the 
charm of New Hampshire's mountains is 
in the beauty of their gently rolling 
wooded slopes and grassy valleys. 

Itinerary 
June 28th 

The party will leave Swampscott (or 
Boston) early Tuesday morning, June 
28th, by train. Lunch will be provided and 
in the middle of the afternoon autos will 
convey the members from Glen and Jack- 



54 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



son Station, four miles, to The Eagle 
Mountain House, Jackson, N. H. (Tele- 
graphic and mail address), where our 
first three days will be spent. 
June 28th to July 1st 

Jackson is one of the noted resorts, on 
the south side of this mountain region, 
and the hotel chosen, three quarters of a 
mile above the village, commands a won- 
derful view of Carter Notch and a circle 
of mountain peaks. It is but a few mo- 
ments walk from Jackson Falls. Jackson 
offers many walks and drives and easy 
climbs. Included in the party ticket, is 
an all-day excursion from Jackson, 
through Upper Bartlett, and the winding 
valley of the Saco River to its source, 
a little lake in Crawford Notch. The road 
crosses and recrosses the river many times 
and passes the site of the Willey Farm 
where a hundred years ago the tragedy 
occurred. The "Notch" becomes more and 
more narrow until there is but space for 
road and river between the towering moun- 
tains. Here we are ready for a campers' 
lunch at the base of Mt. Willard. Op- 
portunity to climb this mountain over a 
good carriage road will be given, and the 
view is a wonderful one down the Saco 
Valley. 

July 1st 

On Friday morning, we leave the Jack- 
son Valley, and motor about twenty miles 
through Pinkham Notch, where Mt. Wash- 
ington in all its grandeur looms ahead 
of us. We stop to see the famous Glenel- 
lis Falls or Crystal Cascade each a 
rather strenuous little climb from the 
main road we then pass the site of the 
Glen House where the carriage road 
starts up Mt. Washington, and get a near 
and inspiring view of Washington, Jef- 
ferson, Adams and Madison the "Presi- 
dential Range" and thence around the 
eastern end of Mt. Madison and up to 
the summit of Randolph Hill. 

July 1-5 

Here at the Mt. Crescent House nearly 
2,000 feet above sea-level, the party will 



spend four days. (Mail and telegrams, 
Mt. Crescent House, Randolph, N. H.) 
Mt. Adams and Mt. Madison tower before 
us to the south with their rocky sum- 
mits and deep ravines. This is the wild 
north side of the White Mountain Region, 
the trampers' paradise, where style is left 
behind. Stretching north, from Randolph 
Mountain behind the hotel, is an unbroken 
wilderness to the Canadian border while 
from the piazza the view to the east shows 
mountain ranges in Maine. Pine groves 
in front of the house lure us, mountain 
climbs beckon the energetic upward. 
"Mossy Glen" for the strollers; "Ice Gulch" 
our nearest approach to a glacier in New 
England for the sturdy trampers. 

An all-day auto trip will cover Jeffer- 
son, to the west of the big mountains; 
Bretton Woods where is the Mt. Washing- 
ton Hotel, famous as an A. L. A. head- 
quarters in 1909; Profile Lake and the 
"Old Man of the Mountains" that great 
stone face so wonderful; and The Flume 
of Franconia, our nearest approach to a 
canyon in this region. Here our camp 
lunch will be eaten. 

July 5th 

Early July 5th (Tuesday) the party will 
leave Randolph by train for Boston, by 
way of Crawford Notch, through which 
the railway is built well up on the moun- 
tain side a famous piece of engineering, 
and offering splendid mountain views. 
The party will disband at Boston in the 
early afternoon. 

Special Information 

Party limited to 50 persons. 

Register for this trip with Mr. F. W. 
Faxon, 83 Francis street, Boston 17, Mass., 
before June 10th, sending $10 advance 
payment. Balance to be paid at Swamp- 
scott. Checks received. Total cost for 
the 8 days railroad, meals, hotels, and 
three auto trips $58 based on two in a room 
without bath. Swampscott to Boston.

son add $1.50 each person. 



BULLETIN

For room with private bath at Jackson 
add $3.00 each person. 

For single room at Jackson and Ran- 
dolph add 50c a night. 

NOTE: There are no rooms at Randolph 
with bath or running water, and if party 
is large but few single rooms at Randolph 
will be available. 

Trunks should not be taken, but if de- 
sired, add $3.00 for each trunk. Any 
who desire to go to New York from Ran- 
dolph may leave the party there and have 
refund of $7.00. 

Illustrated booklets giving full details 
of the two hotels and regions adjacent 
will be sent anyone on application to Mr. 
F. W. Faxon, 83 Francis street, Boston 17, 
Mass. 

Weather in the mountains in early July 
is likely to be comfortably warm in the 
middle of the day with cool night. Wraps 
for rides and evenings will be needed. For 
tramping, even to the highest peaks, hob- 
nail shoes are not necessary; any strong 
boots with fairly thick soles will be found 
satisfactory. 



Late Chicago Note 

Special cars and special service will be 
available to all who join the Chicago par- 
ty. Good schedules have been arranged 
and the trip is sure to be a pleasant one. 

Time will be saved and service im- 
proved if the number of persons who reg- 
ister for the trip from Chicago reaches 125 
and so justifies the railroad in putting on 
not a few extra cars but a special train. 
All those who expect to attend from this 
part of the country are urged to join the 
Chicago party at Chicago. It will not 
only make the trip pleasanter this year 
but will make prospects for special service 
in the future more certain. It is to the 
advantage of the Association as a whole 
to have a greater encouragement given in 
the special parties. The more we travel 
together the more recognition we will get 
from the railroads.

BULLETIN

A. L. A. CONSTITUTION 

Statement by the Committee 

present Committee on constitution two diverse opinions among the members; 
L and by-laws was appointed bytheExecu- one wishing greatly to increase the powers 



tive Board to do three things: to present 
to the conference at Swampscott for final 
adoption the Constitution voted on at Col- 
orado Springs; to draw up by-laws for this 
constitution; and to suggest such amend- 
ments as will provide for certain changes 
in the organization and functioning of the 
A. L. A. that have been suggested by in- 
dividuals and especially by the discussions 
at the mid-winter meetings of 1919-1920 
and the Colorado Springs Conference. 

The first task is simple. 

In drafting by-laws, the committee has 
endeavored to provide for as many of the 
suggested changes as possible without 
amending the Constitution. Such provi- 
sions are: the increase and readjustment 
of dues; new machinery for nominations, 
providing for more candidates and a vote 
by mail, so that every member, whether 
in attendance at the Conference or not, 
may vote; a new basis of state repre- 
sentation in Council, designed to be more 
democratic; A. L. A. chapters, frequently 
suggested, which should strengthen the 
ties between the A. L. A. and the local 
organizations and give a representative 
form of government; a provision to put 
all publishing activities directly into the 
hands of the Executive Board, thus cen- 
tralizing all the administrative functions 
of the Association; a simplification of the 
section on committees, making it possible 
to appoint special committees and discon- 
tinue committees as necessary; and re- 
gional meetings of the Association in sec- 
tions not conveniently situated for attend- 
ance at the conferences of the Association. 

In suggesting amendments, the chief 
purpose of the committee has been to 
make the A. L. A. as democratic as pos- 
sible, and at the same time to centralize 
the administrative functions of the As- 
sociation in the Executive Board thereby 
expediting action. There are evidently 



of the Executive Board, either doing away 
with the Council or shearing it of most 
of its powers, the other desiring to in- 
crease the importance of the Council. 
The Committee has unanimously thought 
that the prevailing judgment of the As- 
sociation is for a strong Council, and to 
this end has prepared new sections in the 
constitution providing for a reorganized 
Council which shall be the policy-making 
and legislative body of the Association, at 
the same time making provision for a ref- 
erendum by the Council to the membership, 
and for a revision of the decisions of the 
Council by direct action of the member- 
ship. 

In the opinion of the committee, the 
will of the Association is to concentrate 
all executive and administrative power in 
the Executive Board, as its name implies, 
to manage the affairs of the Association, 
and carry out its policies, not to form 
the policies. 

Other detailed changes have been made 
to guard against hasty action by a small 
section of the Association, chiefly by pro- 
viding a geographical quorum for the 
Council and for a referendum vote by mail 
on important matters of policy. In the 
Council itself, the state chapters can ex- 
press their majority opinion through their 
delegates. 

In regard to A. L. A. chapters it may be 
helpful to call attention to the fact that 
the unity of state Associations has not 
been jeopardized. Existing Associations 
may, if they wish representation in the 
A. L. A. Council, vote to become chap- 
ters. In local matters they remain as 
free as ever. The only change is that 
their representation in the A. L. A. Coun- 
cil is proportional to the number of their 
members who are also members of the A. 
L. A. 

The committee considered carefully the 



58 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



matter of biennial meetings, but was not 
unanimous for amending the constitution 
to provide for these. Distances are so 
great and expenses so heavy that annual 
meetings have become in a measure local 
meetings. Biennial meetings with re- 
gional meetings in off years might be a 
better plan. For the next two years, 
even with amendment, there will have to 
be annual meetings. The committee has 
amended the constitution so as to leave 
the time and place of meetings to the

cinity, held in St. -Louis on February 2, 
1921, the following was unanimously 
adopted:

of 54 members of the Association living

tion of the participants to hold similar 
meetings in the future; that the Board 
be asked to give its formal sanction to

field and many more at home, and that 
it would be impossible to decide who was 
entitled to the button.

time.

ident be instructed to communicate with 
Miss Ahern, requesting that the Commit- 
tee recommend to the Executive Board, 
and perhaps to the Council, a general 
policy with respect to the A. L. A.'s rela- 
tions with other national organizations, 
and that the Committee also recommend 
to the Executive Board specific things 
which the Association should do in the 
way of sending exhibits, delegates or 
speakers to national meetings.

Voted: That the Executive Board of the 
American Library Association endorse the 
idea of a National Book Day, having for 
its object the return of books that are 
not the property of the possessor, and 
that the Secretary inform the various 
newspaper syndicates of the action of the 
Board. 

Voted: That the thanks of the Execu- 
tive Board be extended and appreciation

Refund to War Funds for Books for Blind. 



1,037,20 



$39,857.20 

Unpaid pledges 21,206.69 

Although one-half of this should be collected in 1921, none of it is 
included in the proposed expenditures for this year. 

The amount of cash available (March 1) is 39,857.20 

From this should be set aside as an Endowment Fund, one-half of $40,894,42, 

namely 20,447.21 



Leaving a balance available for appropriation of $19,409.99 

The cash contributions for special purposes amount to $12,095.55, less $1,037.20 al- 
ready spent for books for the blind; net $11,058.35. 

It seems desirable to spend first the donations for special purposes in order that 
those purposes which were in the minds of the donors may be accomplished as soon as 
possible. It is desirable also to reserve some of the general funds for further addition 
to the endowment fund when the pledges (which are chiefly for special purposes) have 
been paid. (The Committee recommends that, if possible, only funds given for general 
purposes be put into the endowment fund.)

Having these things in mind the Committee presents the following budget for you)

The sum of $1,037.20 has been transferred to the War Funds to cover cost of certain 
work already done to carry out the wishes of the donors. The amount included in the 
budget must cover some other work now in process. 

It is proposed that the $12,057.75, if appropriated for the above purposes, be used 

as follows (in co-operation with appropriate committees) : 

Salaries (general assistant giving special attention to printing and publicity; 
stenographer, extra help) 

Publication of books for the blind (under the supervision of the Committee on 
work with the blind)

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



The Finance Committee approves an expenditure of $12,057.75 in 1921 and the trans- 
fer of $20,447.21 to the Endowment Fond. 

Although it makes the foregoing suggestions for the expenditure of this amount, 
$12,057.75, it feels that the Executive Board should have a free hand to make such ap- 
propriation of it as it deems proper, and feel under no obligation to adopt this sug- 
gested schedule of expenditures.

Dear Sir: 

In accordance with your instructions,

following statement a summary of receipts 
and disbursements of the First and Second

includes the amounts expended by the 
war finance committee in conducting the 



First and Second campaigns, and the 
amounts expended by the committee on en- 
larged program, from sums advanced by 
the War Service Funds at various times 
amounting in all to $202,340.00. 

By action of the Board it was voted 
that certain of the advances made amount- 
ing to $137,265.69, be cancelled leaving a bal- 
ance of $65,074.31. Of this balance the sum 
of $45,000.00 had been returned by the

FEW A. L. A. conferences in recent 
years have offered more attractions 
then the Swampscott meeting in June. 

Several men and women of national 
prominence will be on the program, to 
talk about public questions of special in- 
terest to librarians. Some of America's 
foremost authors will be there to read 
from their works or to talk intimately 
about them. The points of local interest 
are unsurpassed anywhere in America. 

All the affiliated national organizations 
and some which are not affiliated, all the 
sections and some groups which are not 
sections, will hold meetings. 

Those who usually attend the national 
library meetings will not think of missing 
this one, and many who have not before 
attended such a meeting, or who attend 
infrequently, will be attracted to this con- 
ference. 



MANY library positions are filled as a 
result of meetings and recommenda- 
tions made at the annual conferences. 
Those persons who desire to take advan- 
tage of the A. L. A. Headquarters Employ- 
ment Service in securing librarians or as- 
sistants or in securing positions, are re- 
quested to notify A. L. A. Headquarters be- 
fore the time of the conference. The for- 
warding in advance of full information re- 
garding positions to be filled or a clear 
statement of the applicant's qualifications 
and the kind of position desired will 
greatly facilitate the handling of these 
matters at Swampscott. 

During the conference, the assistant 
secretary, Miss Bogle, will be glad to 
meet librarians and discuss their employ- 
ment needs. Definite hours for such meet- 
ings will be announced. 

PROMPTNESS in being present at the 
hour named for beginning the sessions 
of the coming Conference is of the utmost 
importance and will be of great assistance 
to the presiding officer. Every member 
can be of help in this simple matter and 
thus enable the programs to move prompt- 
ly and begin and end on time. At the 
business sessions it is essential that 
enough members meet promptly in order 
that necessary business can be cared for 
expeditiously; and courtesy certainly de- 
mands our presence when speakers are 
scheduled for a certain hour. 
npHERE are now (April 30) 5,093 mem- 
J_ hers of the A. L. A. 
On December 31, 1920, there. were 4,464. 
This is a gain in four months of 629 
or 14.1%. 

But there are hundreds, perhaps thou- 
sands, of other persons library workers 
and library trustees who ought to be in- 
vited and urged to join the American Li- 
brary Association. Every member of the 
Association who is willing to assume, with 
the Membership Committee and the of- 
ficers, a part of the responsibility of ex- 
tending the membership is making a con- 
tribution to the library movement.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



The Minneapolis Public Library now 
has a 100% A. L. A. membership, not 
counting the nonprofessional workers in 
the library. 

Pratt Institute Library School, Class 
1921, shows a 100% membership in 
the A. L. A. Unfortunately, the full list 
of names was received too late for inclu- 
sion in the May Bulletin. 

With four exceptions the staff of the 
Omaha Public Library is 100% A. L. A. 
The exceptions are apprentices or other 
persons who have been in the library 
service less than one year. 

All the members of the Western Re- 
serve Library School class have joined 
the A. L. A. 

All the members of the senior class of 
the New York State Library School are 
members of the A. L. A. 

Four trustees of the new public library 
at Roanoke, Virginia, have joined the A. 
L. A. 

Don't let your membership lapse. Mem- 
bers whose dues are in arrears after the 
annual conference must be dropped from 
the membership list. 

THE educational bill now before Con- 
gress (H. R. 7, the so-called Smith- 
Towner bill) deserves careful considera- 
tion by all librarians. It offers an opportun- 
ity to all those interested in library promo- 
tion and progress to consider the place of 
the library movement in national educa- 
tion. The time has come for us to decide 
what we think the government should do 
for the library as an educational agency. 

Should a Department of Education be 
created? If so, should there be a Bureau 
of Libraries in that department? Should 
libraries share in the provision made for 
"studies and investigations in the field of 
education?" Should libraries share in the 
proposed federal grants for extension (as 
provided for in section 9) ? If a national 
Council of Education is created, should 
there be library representatives on it? 

For years the claim has been made that 



the public library is an integral part of 
public education. How should provision 
be made for Federal recognition of it? 

Although the educational bill is receiv- 
ing the careful attention of an active A. 
L. A. Committee on Federal and State Re- 
lations, and although the Association has 
by formal vote approved the bill in its 
original form, the questions involved are 
too far-reaching and too important to be 
neglected by any member of the library 
profession. 

Special attention is called to sections 3, 
4, 5, 9 and 17 of the bill in its present 
form. 

EVERY few days A. L. A. Headquarters 
receives a request for material for a 
magazine article on some phase of library 
work. 

To meet this demand our supply of pic- 
tures, "stories" and facts from libraries 
all over the country should be constantly 
renewed. Articles actually written or 
partly written are especially useful. 
There are never enough good pictures 
with action. 

Subjects of special interest now are: 
Salary schedules and compilations (not 
so much for publicity use as for use 
In correspondence.) 
County Libraries. 

Library buildings, plans and pictures. 
Samples of library publicity (especially 

publicity for support.) 
Children's work. 
Work with the foreign born. 

/T^HE publication of "Plays for Chil- 
J. dren" by Miss Alice I. Hazeltine, has 
been delayed because of the critical illness 
and death of Miss Hazeltine's mother. It 
will probably be ready in May. For full an- 
nouncement, see the March Bulletin. 

The second title in the "Viewpoint Se- 
ries" is in the printers hands. It is 
"Viewpoints in Biography," by Katherine 
Tappert. Price 60 cents. 

A short Christmas Jist of books for 
Children by May Massee and Sarah C. N. 
Bogle is in preparation. Suggestions and 
suggestive lists will be welcomed. 



BULLETIN 



FACTS FOR TRUSTEES 

THOSE interested in popular education 
look largely to library trustees to lead 
the way in the development of the library 
movement as distinct from library prac- 
tice. Trustees are interested, not in the 
library as a library, but in its results. 
Because they are not handicapped by 
familiarity with details of practice they 
have an opportunity to get and keep a 
vision which will 'be a constant challenge 
to library workers. 

They will be the first to recognize the 
need for compulsory library legislation, 
the first to dream of the possibility of 
state support on a large scale. They are 
the people who think in the biggest terms, 
whether it be of service or of funds. 

May we not expect of trustees who have 
accepted these large responsibilities a 
close and active affiliation with the na- 
tional and international library organiza- 
tion? May we not hope to draw from 
them and from their meetings at the na- 
tional conferences something which will 
lift these conferences above the common- 
place discussion of everyday library prac- 
tice? 

The A. L. A. has had for years the 
nucleus of a Trustees Section. Large num- 
bers and new enthusiasm can make of 
that Section an important agency in the 
promotion of education in America. 

It is to be hoped that this year's con- 
ference, held within easy reach of hun- 
dreds of library trustees, will be attended 
by a larger number than ever before. A 
note about the program of the Trustees 
Section will be found on page 9. 



THE salaries range from $12,500 to $2,- 
500 per year. The average salary is 
$6,647, the median salary $6,000, the most 
frequent salary $6,000. These are facts 
about salaries of 77 presidents and chan- 
cellors in universities and colleges which 
are maintained by states and municipal- 
ities. 

In 1916 95% of Milwaukee's grade 



teachers were paid less than $1,200. To- 
day 100% receive no less than $1,200 
and many receive $2,400. (From Milwau- 
kee Teachers' Salary Campaign.) 

From 1913-14 to 1919-20 salaries, of 
school librarians including assistants have 
increased 47.8%, school nurses 54.3%. 
(from "Know and help your schools.") 

Teachers' salaries in American cities 
1914-20 showed an increase of 61%. 
(Strayer, American City, November, 
1920.) 

By the budget formally adopted by the 
Detroit Board of Education, January 12. 
1920, the average increase for the entire 
group of teachers was 92.4%. (Detroil 
Educational Bulletin, No. 1, 1920.) 

The table below shows the amount 
given in 1920 by 11 representative states 
to public education. Do you know how 
much the same states give to public li- 
braries?

The president has appointed Miss Kath- 
arine M. Wead, librarian of the Univer- 
sity of Nanking, as a member of the Sub- 
committee on library work in the Far East 
of the A. L. A. Committee on library 
co-operation with other countries. Miss 
Cornelia Marvin is chairman of the sub- 
committee, Miss Mary E. Ahern, chairman 
of the general committee. 



Any group of people interested in a spe- 
cial subject and desiring to hold a round 
table meeting should notify the secretary 
immediately so that a room may be as- 
signed and appropriate mention made in 
the program.

"The Library is open! We are con- 
vinced that all the people rejoice. In a 
bright and cheerful room each one finds 
the very book which belongs to him; the 
children, the fairy tales and imaginative 
stories; adventurous souls, the recitals of 
voyages and explorations; research work- 
ers, scientific works; serious readers, 
their classics; the young people, works 
upon the Great War from which they 
learn of their predecessors and what is 
imposed upon those who want to show 
themselves worthy of our glory and of 
our sacrifices, in a word worthy of Our 
France!" From a newspaper account of 
the opening of the Free Public Library

"Yet, though man grows in truth from 

more to more, 
Old forces through our mystic being 

sweep ; 

The soul remembereth its holy lore; 
Some moods habitual to mankind we 

keep; 
We believe; though time forever on the 

scroll 

Buries the early writing of the soul." 
GEOBGB EDWARD WOODBEBRY. 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



LIBRARIES IN EDUCATION 

1. All pupils in both elementary and 
secondary schools should have ready ac- 
cess to books to the end that they may 
be trained: 

(a) to love to read that which is worth 
while 

(b) to supplement their school studies 
by the use of books other than textbooks 

(c) to use reference books easily and 
effectively 

(d) to use intelligently both the school 
library and the public library. 

2. Every secondary school should have 
a trained librarian, and every elementary 
school should have trained library serv- 
ice. 

3. Trained librarians should have the 
same status as teachers or heads of de- 
partments of equal training and exper- 
ience. 

4. Every school that provides training 
for teachers should require a course in 
the use of books and libraries, and a 
course on the best literature for children. 

5. Every state should provide for the 
supervision of school libraries and for the 
certification of school librarians. 

6. The public library should be recog- 
nized as a necessary part of public in- 
struction, and should be as liberally sup- 
ported by tax, as are the public schools, 
and for the same reasons. 

7. The school system that does not 
make liberal provision for training in the 
use of libraries, fails to do its full duty 
in the way of revealing to all future cit- 
izens the opportunity to know and to use 
the resources of the public library as a 
means of education. 

The above statement is recommended 
by the following committee for adoption 
by the Library Department of the N. E. 
A.: J. I. Wyer, Walter Brown, Annie S. Cut- 
ter, Lucile F. Fargo, H. A. Hollister, Flo- 
rence M. Hopkins, Willis H. Kerr, C. G. 
Leland, O. S. Rice, Mary C. Richardson, 
Alice Tyler, Harriet A. Wood, Adeline E. 
Zachert.

. mission has classified naval librarians

cants must submit to the examiner on the 
day of the examination a thesis, prefer-

and arranging a library at a military or 
naval station with a complement of 10,- 
000 men.

ican Library Association.

THE STORY OF LIBRARY WAR SERV- 
ICE PUBLISHED IN FRENCH* 
TT^DOUARD CHAMPION has just pub- 
tv lished a French- edition of Theodore 
Wesley Koch's "Books in the War," trans- 
lated by Abel Doysie" under the title "Les 
Livres & la Guerre." The book is a large oc- 
tavo of 428pages in addition to 147 full page 
illustrations, many of which are not found 
in the English edition. The charming in- 
troduction by Burton E. Stevenson, giv- 
ing his resume" of Library War Service, is 
not available in any other form. There 
is also a brief preface by Marshal Foch, 
which (in the words of the publisher) is 
"like a salutation of the sword." There 
is a new chapter on the American Li- 
brary in Paris. The book is therefore 
much more than a mere translation of the 
English edition and many American li- 
braries will be interested in securing a 
copy. 

The translation is being well received 
in France. M. G. Remon, who is in- 
terested in a special library for the furni- 
ture makers and wood carvers of Paris, 
has reviewed the French edition in the 
Radical, March 26, 1921. He characterizes 
the work as one of the "livres bienfais- 
ants" (welfare books) "those which spur 
us on to useful actions." On every page 
we find, says M. Remon, helpful and in- 
spiring accounts of the admirable cam- 
paign undertaken by the Americans to 
supply the combatants with good books. 
It is no exaggeration, says he, to speak 
of a vertible "mobilization of books." He 
feels that the organization of these war 
time circulating libraries has a bearing 
on peace time problems. And that is 
why, he says in conclusion, "the reading 
of this fine work, filled with anecdotes 
and with technical information, profusely 
and ingeniously illustrated, will appear 
singularly attractive to all those in France 



who are interested in the means for de- 
veloping up-to-date public library serv- 
ice." 

M. Georges Girard devotes consider- 
able space in L'Opinion of March 18, 1921 
to a summary of the book. He speaks of 
the "admirable work" of the A. L. A. 
"which has had the happiest results." 
The A. L. A., says he, had the honor to 
furnish free books to the four and a half 
million men who made up the American 
army. "Happy Sammies who found books 
even in their guard houses!" 

"How can you help smiling when you 
compare such a work with the feeble at- 
tempts which were made by the French," 
is Mr. Girard's comment. "No doubt there 
was some uneasiness as to the intellectual 
needs of the army and dreams about sat- 
isfying them. The realization was how- 
ever very imperfect, and all that was ac- 
complished in any satisfactory manner 
was due to private enterprises." Gen- 
eral Lyautey's order of October 27, 1917 
is cited as indicative of an interest in 
the matter, but unfortunately this was 
more or less a personal concern and an 
isolated case, and consequently unfruit- 
ful. Lyautey had hoped for recreation 
halls with a varied selection of good lit- 
erature including books on economics and 
practical subjects. Books and maps on 
Morocco, for example, should be readily 
accessible to the troops who were to be 
sent out there. Moreover, in Lautey's 
opinion, these recreation halls or assembly 
rooms should be among the first to be 
set up in a new camp, for they furnish 
protection against the army blues which 
is the first of the enemies to be fought 
in an isolated army post.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



COLORADO SPRINGS CONFERENCE* 



FOURTH GENERAL SESSION 
(Friday afternoon, June 4) 

President Hndley presided. 

The Secretary read the report of the 
War Service Committee for the year end- 
ing June 1, 1920. Thereupon the motion 
that the report be adopted was made, 
seconded and carried. 

Dr. Montgomery then moved that the 
various committee reports of which 
printed copies had been distributed be of- 
ficially received and filed. The motion 
was carried. 

Dr. Andrews read the report of the 
Finance Committee. He stated that the 
formal report covered the accounts of the 
American Library Association for the last 
year, and the Budget for 1920. A supple- 
mental report covers the accounts up to 
the transfer of the funds from the cus- 
tody of the former treasurer, Mr. Roden, 
to the new treasurer, Mr. Tweedell. Dr. 
Andrews stated that the accounts of Mr. 
Roden had been found correct and that 
the balances shown at the date of transfer 
had been transferred to Mr. Tweedell, and 
acknowledged by him. Dr. Andrews ex- 
plained that the Executive Board had 
taken possession of the War Service Fund 
and that in justice to himself and the 
Finance Committee he wanted it under- 
stood that the supplementary report cov- 
ering the activities carried on with that 
Fund was not the work of the Finance 
Committee. A motion that the report be 
received and filed was made, seconded and 
carried. 

The President then introduced Dr. 
Bishop, chairman of the Committee on 
revision of the constitution, who said: "A 
special meeting of the American Library 
Association was called at Chicago in 
January of this year to consider the revi- 
sion of the constitution. That meeting de-

grettably omitted from the published pro- 
ceedings. Separates of this report are avail- 
able for those who wish them. 



voted two sessions to the matter, and a 
transcript of the proceedings was pub- 
lished in the January Bulletin. At Chi- 
cago the Association went into the com- 
mittee of the whole for the purpose of 
discussing informally the draft presented 
at that meeting by the Committee on re- 
vision. It spent two full sessions in dis- 
cussing this revision informally. That 
committee did not report to the Associa- 
tion. The situation is simply this. The 
proposed revision has been discussed in- 
formally and certain expressions of the 
sense of the Association sitting as a com- 
mittee of the whole have been made on 
many of these provisions. The Commit- 
tee on revision has been governed by the 
wishes of the Chicago meeting. There 
are only two points in which the Com- 
mittee felt it due to itself to express dis- 
sent from the Chicago action. These are 
noted in the printed report which is now 
before the Association for action. In 
order to be carried, any of these changes 
must receive a three-fourths vote of the 
members present and voting." 

The proposed draft of the constitution 
was then read, discussed, and voted on 
section by section. The following mod- 
ifications were made in the constitution 
proposed by the Committee on revision. 
(Bulletin 14: 120-26.) 

A motion to substitute "interested" for 
"engaged" and to strike out "and others 
after election by the Executive Board" 
in Section 3 carried by a vote of 103 to 
23. 

Voted that Section 9 be adopted as rec- 
ommended by the Committee excepting 
that "executive officer" be substituted for 
"librarian" in line 7. 

Voted that "vice-president" in line 8 
of section 11 be made "vice-presidents;" 
that "1920" in line 10 read "1921;" that 
"three years later" be substituted for "in 
1923" in line 16, and that "four years 
later" be substituted for "in 1924" in line 17.

92 AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



= 



Again the time approaches when the members of the 
A. L. A. meet together to review the accomplishments of the 
year and renew the hopes and ideals for future work. This 
year we are to meet amidst unusual surroundings. The 
origins of American librarianship were rooted in New Eng- 
land. The literary traditions and associations of the locality 
are stimulating and inspiring. Amidst such surroundings, 
the Association should courageously face its new problems 
and possibilities and plan for larger and greater things. We 
have passed through a period of tests, the test of amazing 
and resultful effort, crowned with success in the effective 
library service rendered during the war; and the test of dis- 
couragement which followed the effort for increased finance 
and enlarged activities. 

Trials of both success and failure have, without doubt, 
clarified our vision and strengthened our confidence that the 
realities of library service are stable and enlarging. Out of 
these experiences, we should enter upon the next stage of 
library growth and development with courage, and with con- 
fidence in each other and in our work. The program of the 
Swampscott Conference will, we trust, be of interest and 
profit and contribute to this end. Let all plan to come with 
the spirit of cooperation and fellowship and with the expecta- 
tion of a good time among the surroundings and traditions of 
New England. 

Meantime, the intervening weeks between now and June 
20th, will afford opportunity to roll up a long list of new 
members for the Association, if each member adds at least one 
new member. Gratifying as the growth has been since 
January 1st, all members should determine to have a part in 
bringing about an increase of not less than 25 per cent from 
the beginning of the year. Let this be our goal before June 
20th. 

AJI ardent belief in library service and a sincere endeavor 
to enlist all librarians in united effort in advancing it, means 
greater personal satisfaction in the day's work, as well as a 
strong and effective national organization. This is a joyous 
task for all. 

Faithfully yours, 



ALICE S. TYLER, 

President.

ENDOWMENT FUNDS 



Following the meeting of 1890 and 
through the efforts of the Trustees section 
to collect a permanent fund "for publish- 
ing the proceedings of the association," 
the Endowment fund (see sec. 5 of Con- 
stitution) was established. It amounts 
now to $9,261.84. To this fund was added 
in 1902 the Carnegie fund of $100,000 given 
by Andrew Carnegie as a special fund, the 
income of which shall be applied to the 
preparation and publication of such read- 
ing lists, indexes and other bibliographic 
and literary aids as would foe especially 



useful in the circulating libraries of the 
country. By a vote of the Council, the 
Carnegie fund has been placed in charge 
of the trustees of the Endowment fund. 
Special mention should be made of the 
benefactions of George lies in financing 
several publications which the Association 
would not have been able to have pub- 
lished without such financial aid. Full in- 
formation as to the investment and con- 
dition of these funds will be found in the 
reports of the Trustees as printed each 
year.

SECTIONS OF THE ASSOCIATION 



By means of a system of sections the 
practical usefulness of the A. L. A. meet- 
ings has been considerably enlarged. The 
section meetings, while open to all, pro- 
vide especially for the needs of each class 
of workers, and afford more opportunity 
for the discussion of details. The general, 
or undivided, sessions are thus left free 
for subjects of general interest and the 
consideration of routine matter concern- 
ing the entire association. 

Seven of these sections maintain a for- 
mal organization from year to year, and 
take under consideration questions relat- 
ing more particularly to their own prov- 
ince. They are as follows: 

COLLEGE AND REFERENCE SECTION 

which dates from a first meeting of the 
college librarians held in 1889. Since then, 
meetings have been held regularly. 

The members of the committee on ar- 
rangements are: Chairman, Charles J. 
Barr, Yale University Library, New Haven, 
Conn.; W. E. Henry, University of Wash- 
ington Library, Seattle (term expires 
1923); E. D. Tweedell, The John Crerar 
Library, Chicago, 111., (term expires 1924). 

TRUSTEES SECTION 
has had a permanent organization since 
the meeting of 1890. 

More boards of trustees are each year 
recognizing the practical value of having 
their librarians attend the meetings al- 
lowing them not only the time, but also 
necessary expenses in many cases. Equal- 
ly significant is the increasing number of 
trustees who find that it pays to attend 
the A. L. A. meetings each year. By com- 
paring views, and advising with each other 
on their peculiar duties, mutual aid is ren- 
dered toward the efficient discharge of the 
public trust committed to them. Some of 
the meetings of trustees are held jointly 
with the librarians interested in supervi- 
sory problems; others with trustees only 
present; thus favoring the joint and sep- 
arate discussion of salaries, laws, vaca- 



tions, rules for the staff, and other ques- 
tions in which librarians have a personal 
interest that modifies their judgment. 

Officers for 1921-22 are: Chairman, F. 
H. Pettingill, Public Library, Los Angeles, 
Calif.; secretary, Mrs. Ora Thompson 
Ross, Rensselaer, Ind. 

CATALOG SECTION 

was established by action of the Council 
in 1900 and has met at each conference 
since the Waukesha meeting in 1901, ex- 
cepting at St. Louis in 1904, when no sec- 
tion meetings were held. 

At the Mackinac Island conference 
(1910) the Catalog Section completed its 
organization by the adoption of a consti- 
tution and by-laws. Officers for 1921-22 
are: Chairman, Mrs. Jennie Thornburg 
Jennings, Public Library, St. Paul, Minn.; 
secretary, Ruth Rosholt, Public Library, 
Minneapolis, Minn. 

CHILDREN'S LIBRARIANS SECTION 

At the Montreal conference in 1900 an 
informal meeting was held for the purpose 
of personal acquaintance and co-operation 
among those actively engaged in library 
work with children. As a result of this 
meeting the Club of Children's Librarians 
was formed, and, in recognition of this 
movement for closer organization and 
wider discussion in this field than was 
afforded at the general sessions of the 
A. L. A., the Executive Board, in Novem- 
ber, 1900, established this section, which 
held its first meeting at Waukesha in 
1901. 

Officers for 1921-22 are: Chairman, 
Clara W. Hunt, Public Library, Brooklyn, 
N. Y.; vice-chairman, E. Gertrude Avey, 
Public Library, Cincinnati, Ohio; secre- 
tary, Lenore Power, Public Library, New 
York City. 

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING SECTION 

This section was established by vote 
of the Council of A. L. A. on June 26, 1909, 
upon petition signed by the members of 
the Committee on Library Training. Its 



290 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



first meeting was held at the Bretton 
Woods conference and its second meet- 
ing took place at the Mackinac Island con- 
ference, when constitution and by-laws 
were adopted. 

Officers for 1921-22 are: Chairman, 
Sidney B. Mitchell, University of Cali- 
fornia Library, Berkeley, Calif.; vice-chair- 
man, Lucy Morgan, Public Library, De- 
troit, Mich.; secretary, Edna M. Hull, East 
Junior High School Library," Warren, Ohio. 

AGRICULTURAL LIBRARIES SECTION 

At the Mackinac Island Conference a 
round table of librarians of agricultural 
libraries was held, at which it was voted 
to request the Council of the A. L. A. to 
create an agricultural libraries section. 
Conditions having been complied with, this 
was done at the Pasadena Conference in 
1911. Officers for 1921-22 are: Chairman, 
Lucy E. Fay, University of Tennessee Li- 
brary, Knoxville, Tenn.; secretary, Mary 
G. Lacy, Scripps Economic Bureau, Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

SCHOOL LIBRARIES SECTION 

At the 1914 conference the high and 
normal school librarians, then holding 
round table meetings, made a formal peti- 
tion to the Council that a section for 



school libraries be established. The Coun- 
cil in January, 1915, authorized the organi- 
zation of the section, and the first meet- 
ing was held at the Berkeley Conference. 

The School Libraries Section seeks to 
serve as a clearing house for professional 
information regarding libraries in ele- 
mentary, secondary and normal schools, 
and to compile a directory of school li- 
brarians. Its purpose is to discuss meth- 
ods, formulate policies, establish stand- 
ards and maintain relations with the Li-' 
brary Department of the N. E. A. and 
other educational organizations. 

Officers for 1921-1922 are: Chairman, 
Marion Horton, Public Library, Los An- 
geles, Calif.; vice-chairman, Jessie E. 
Tompkins, Public Library, Detroit, Mich.; 
secretary-treasurer, Frances H. Kelly, Car- 
negie Library, Pittsburgh, Pa. 

LENDING SECTION 

This section held its first meeting as a 
section June 5, 1920. 

Officers for 1921-22 are: Chairman, John 
A. Lowe, Public Library, Brooklyn, N. Y.; 
vice-chairman, Edith F. Vermeule, Yesler 
Br., Public Library, Seattle, Wash.; secre- 
tary-treasurer, Mary U. Rothrock, Lawson 
McGhee Library, Knoxville, Tenn. 



AFFILIATED NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS 



Acting under Section 16 of the Consti- 
tution and upon applications formally 
made by the proper officers, the Council 
has regularly affiliated with the American 
Library Association the following na- 
tional organizations of kindred purpose. 
These societies meet annually, usually at 
the time and place of meeting of the 
A. L. A. Their members enjoy all priv- 
ileges of members of the larger body as to 
railroad and hotel rates and conference 
hospitalities. Their proceedings are includ- 
ed in the A. L. A. conference volume and 
they are often formally represented by 
designated delegates upon the program of 
the Association.

EXECUTIVE BOARD ACTION 

The following is a brief summary of the 
important business transacted by the Ex- 
ecutive Board at its Swampscott meetings 
and by correspondence since that time: 

June 20 and 22 

On the recommendation of the Finance 
Committee, the following audits made by 
Marwick, Mitchell & Co., were formally 
approved: 

(1) American Library Association Gen- 
eral Funds, July 1, to December 31, 
1920. 

(2) War 'Funds, October 1 to December 
31, 1920. 

(3) Committee on Enlarged Program, 
July 29 to December 31, 1920. 

(4) Books for Everybody Fund, July 1 
to December 31, 1920. 

(5) First and Second War Service 
Funds, August 1, 1917, to December 
31, 1920. 

(6) American Library Association Fi- 
nancial Statement on all activities, 
as of December 31, 1920. 

The sum of $3,000 was appropriated from 
War Service Funds for library work in 
the Navy. 

The secretary was instructed to edit the 
Proceedings in accordance with the fol- 
lowing proposals in so far "as conditions 
make it seem desirable": 



1. Omit from the Proceedings all the 
papers printed in the library period- 
icals; 

2. Summarize all papers which permit 
of such treatment; 

3. Omit material already printed in the 
Bulletin; 

4. Reports of General Sessions and 
Council meetings to be strictly edited 
and only matter of importance print- 
ed; 

5. The same principle to apply to the 
reports of Sections; 

6. Definite limit to be placed on the 
space allotted to affiliated societies. 

It was voted that the reports published 
for the conference be not reprinted in the 
Proceedings. 

A communication concerning the status 
of librarians under the immigration law 
was referred to the Committee on Inter 
national Relations for action. 

June 26 

The newly elected members, in accord- 
ance with section 11 of the Constitution, 
were divided into two equal classes and 
it was determined by lot that Miss Coun- 
tryman and Mr. Godard should serve for 
three years and that Mr. Meyer and Mr. 
Roden should serve for four years. Miss 
Margaret Mann was appointed for a term 
of one year to fill the vacancy on the Ex- 
ecutive Board, created by Mr. Root's elec- 
tion to the presidency. (Other business 
transacted at this session was routine, in- 
cluding the appointment of committees 
which have already been announced.) 

Correspondence Votes 
W. W. Bishop of the University of Michi- 
gan was appointed delegate from the 
American Library Association to the meet- 
ing of The "Library Association in Man- 
chester, commencing September 12th. 

A statement on the Fordney Tariff Bill 
was approved by the Executive Board. 
This statement has since been printed in 
the library periodicals over the signatures 
of the chairmen of the Committee on Fed- 
eral and State Relations and the Book 
Buying Committee. 
W. Dawson Johnston of St. Paul was

recommended as librarian to the Board of 
Trustees of the American Library in 
Paris, Inc. 

The books and equipment which were 
being held for the merchant marine library 
service and the A. L. A.'s responsibility 
for that service were transferred to the 
American Merchant Marine Library Asso- 
ciation. An appropriation of $5,000 from 
War Funds was made to the American 
Merchant Marine Library Association to 
be used at the discretion of that Associa- 
tion for library service to merchant ma- 
rine vessels. 

The new by-laws adopted at Swamp- 
scott require the Executive Board to fix 
the annual dues of those members who 
wish to receive the Handbook and the 
Proceedings. In accordance with this pro- 
vision, the Executive Board voted that 
after 1921 the annual dues of members re- 
ceiving the Handbook and Proceedings 
should be $4.00. 

The Board voted that after 1921 the 
Booklist should not be sent free to insti- 
tutional members but only on the regular 
subscription basis. 

On the recommendation of the secretary 
the Executive Board voted to make the 
following transfers in the General Funds 
budget: 

$ 25.33 from Salaries to Conference 
$150.00 from Salaries to Supplies, 
$200.00 from Salaries to Miscellaneous. 



THE A. L. A. AND OTHER ORGANIZA- 
TIONS 

The American Library Association has 
been represented at various conferences 
and meetings of national organizations 
during the last few months. 

Miss Edna I. Allyn, Honolulu, by ap- 
pointment of the Executive Board, repre- 
sented the A. L. A. at the Congress on 
Education, August 11, 1921, in Hawaii. 

At the American Prison Association 
meeting in Jacksonville, Florida, the As- 
sociation was represented by J. F. Marron 
of the Jacksonville Public library. 



Miss Emily Van Dorn Miller of New Or- 
leans represented the A. L. A. at the meet- 
ings of the American Country Life Asso- 
ciation and other affiliated groups in New 
Orleans on November 7-12. Copies of the 
leaflet "A County Library" were distrib- 
uted and the county library exhibit was 
hung in the St. Charles Hotel. 

Miss Margaret Dunlap of the Chatta- 
nooga Public library was the A. L. A.'s 
lepresentative at the Southern Co-opera- 
tive League which met in that city No- 
vember 6-9. Here also the county library 
exhibit was shown and the county library 
leaflets distributed. 

Miss Claribel R. Barnett of Washington, 
second vice-president of the A. L. A., rep- 
resented the Association at a conference 
in Washington for the discussion of the 
Towner-Sterling Educational Bill. 

On invitation of the Secretary of War, 
the Association was represented at the 
ceremonies attending the burial of the Un- 
known Dead in Washington on November 
llth by J. I. Wyer, Dr. Herbert Putnam, 
H. H. B. Meyer, Dr. George F. Bowerman 
and L. L. Dickerson. 

The relations of the A. L. A. with other 
national organizations are indicated also 
by our co-operation with the booksellers, 
publishers and Boy Scouts of America in 
Children's Book Week, with the Thrift 
Week organization in its annual observ- 
ance of Thrift Week, and by our relations 
with the N. E. A. and the American Le- 
gion in the celebration of American Educa- 
tion Week. 

We have also been co-operating with 
the President's Unemployment Conference 
Committees by obtaining information for 
those committees about library buildings 
in course of construction. 



The new interest in rural problems 
makes the county library an institution 
of strategic importance, co-operating with 
the schools, the county farm bureaus, the 
agencies for rural health and so on.

QUSINESS is good. The sales of A. L. A. 
D publications from January 1 to Octo- 
ber 31, 1921, were 58.6% greater than for 
the same period of 1920. 

"-pHERE are now 5,270 members of the 
1 American Library Association. Last 
year at this time there were 4,464. The 
net gain is 806. 

The total membership as reported in the 
Handbooks for ten years and the net gains

It will be seen that last year brought a 



larger net gain in members than any pre- 
vious year. 

The new Membership Committee, of 
which William J. Hamilton of Indianap- 
olis is chairman, has already launched an 
energetic membership campaign for 1922. 
The chairman is seeking the active help 
of A. L. A. members in each state and 
province in order that no opportunity of 
bringing the A. L. A. to the attention of 
prospective members will be lost. 

There are probably three or four times 
as many library workers in the United 
States and Canada as there are members 
of the A. L. A., and there are many thou- 
sands of library trustees. Certainly our 
membership should go much beyond its 
present mark. 

THE new constitution and by-laws 
adopted in 1921 at Swampscott provide 
a new basis of membership. 

Those who wish to receive the Bulletin, 
including the Handbook and Proceedings, 
will pay four dollars a year. 

Those who wish to receive the Bulletin, 
not including the Handbook and Proceed- 
ings, will pay two dollars a year. 

In either case, new members are re- 
quired to pay a one dollar initiation fee 
the first year. 

Institutional members, five dollars a 
year, including the Bulletin with Hand- 
book and Proceedings. 

Life members, fifty dollars. 

Contributing members, twenty-five dol- 
lars a year. 

Sustaining members, one hundred dol- 
lars a year. 

Contributing and sustaining members 
may be individuals, institutions or organ- 
izations. 

THE Papers and Proceedings for 1921 
have at last been distributed.. Mem- 
bers will be disappointed to discover how 
many excellent papers read at the Swamp- 
scott conference have not been included in 
this volume. They were left out solely on 
account of the expense.

It is hoped that the new basis of mem- 
bership and the constantly increasing num- 
ber of members will enable us to issue a 
volume of Proceedings in 1922 which will 
truly and adequately represent the work 
of the conference and the work of the com- 
mittee. 

The Handbook for 1921 is in the hands 
of the printer and should be mailed soon. 

jvjATIONAL Thrift Week will be ob- 
1 N served on January 17 to 23. It is fos- 
tered by the Y. M. C. A. with forty-one 
other national organizations, including the 
American Library Association. 

The libraries and booksellers are asked 
by the national committee to feature (es- 
pecially on the first day, which is Frank- 
lin's birthday) Franklin's life, under the 
slogan "Franklin made books, but Books 
made Franklin." 

The A. L. A. will issue early in Decem- 
ber a short list of books and pamphlets on 
thrift, compiled by a librarian of one of 
the Federal Reserve Banks. It will be a 
reading list for distribution by libraries 
in their own communities. Specific an- 
nouncements will be made later. 

AT THE meetings of the Council in De- 
cember questions which involve the 
policies of the Association will be pre- 
sented in the form of committee reports, 
accompanied by resolutions embodying the 
judgment of the committee. These the 
Council will be asked to consider, and 
adopt or reject. So far as possible the 
resolutions proposed by the committees 
will be submitted to the members of the 
Council in advance of the meeting. Be- 
cause of the seriousness of the business 
which is to come before the Council at the 
Mid-Winter sessions the President of the 
Association is urging a full attendance. 



What publications are needed? All sug- 
gestions received in time will be presented 
to the Editorial Committee on December 
29th.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



FACTS FOR TRUSTEES 
From many parts of the country are 
coming an increasing number of in- 
quiries regarding library work with chil- 
dren. Many of these are requests for lists 
of books for first purchase; others for best 
books in certain classes; some are rather 
pathetic requests for books for children in 
rural districts without library facilities; 
many have to do with organization, re-or- 
ganization or administration of children's 
rooms or departments; some want to know 
what other libraries are doing for their 
children. Requests for help in finding a 
children's librarian are of frequent oc- 
currence. 

Daily consideration of the needs of 
those who write or come to Headquarters 
to confer regarding children's work makes 
evident an ever-increasing activity in it 
by libraries and a widely aroused con- 
sciousness on the part of the general pub- 
lic. 

WHAT proportion of total public ex- 
penditures should public library trus- 
tees claim for their libraries? What are 
the duties of library trustees? 

These and other questions of interest to 
every library trustee were discussed at the 
Trustees Section of the American Library 
Association at its 1921 meeting in Swamp- 
scott. Discussions have been briefly re- 
ported in the A. L. A. Proceedings just is- 
sued. 

At a meeting of the Council there was 
extended discussion of the question of li- 
brary revenues. W. O. Carson, provincial 
superintendent of Public Libraries, To- 
ronto, Ontario, explained the Public Li- 
braries Act of 1920, which provides that a 
library board may "cause a tax to be levied 
to the extent of that rate on the dollar of 
taxable assessment that will yield 50 cents 
per capita of the population of the consti- 
tuency to be served." He explained the 
new principle of taxation which this law 
established. 

Samuel H. Ranck of Grand Rapids, dis- 



cussed the application of this principle to 
American libraries, and supplemented his 
remarks with a tabulation showing the per 
capita income from city taxes for a group 
of American libraries. 

William J. Hamilton in the same ses- 
sion gave his opinion on the advisability 
of giving public library boards power to 
levy library taxes. 

An excellent digest of library legisla- 
tion for 1921 in the various states is found 
in Mr. William F. Yust's report as chair- 
man of the Committee on Legislation. Li- 
brary board members who are interested 
in library legislation will learn from this 
digest what the tendencies are in library 
development throughout the United States. 

Every trustee will 5nd it interesting to 
read these articles in the Proceedings and 
especially to check up his own library 
against the figures given for other libra- 
ries. 

A MERICAN Education Week will be 
Xx observed by the American Legion and 
the National Education Association on De- 
cember 4-10. Many other national organ- 
izations, including the American Library 
Association, are co-operating with these 
two organizations. 

Every effort will be made to keep the 
primary importance of education before 
the people during this week. In the ac- 
complishment of this purpose the library 
is an important factor. The officers of 
the two associations are asking for the 
help of library commissions, state libra- 
ries and local libraries. Copies of a four- 
page leaflet will be sent to any library on 
request. The communication should be 
addressed to the N. E. A. at 1201 Sixteenth 
Street N. W., Washington, D. C. 

Many libraries will welcome the op- 
portunity which American Education Week 
offers for doing a good turn for the schools, 
and will find in the observance of the 
week an opportunity also to popularize 
the kind of education which the library is 
equipped to furnish.

A Message from the President 



Two forms of help every administration needs in order to be suc- 
cessful. The first form of help is in the way of suggestions. No group 
of men and women, themselves busily engaged at an occupation which 
brings them their support, can consider every angle of the professional 
field. They need the suggestions of all the men and women in the pro- 
fession and such suggestions are certainly cordially invited by the pres- 
ent executive board. But it must be remembered that the finances of 
the American Library Association are so limited that only an insignifi- 
cant part of these suggestions can possibly be acted on, and the execu- 
tive board will have to choose among them those that in their judgment 
seem more immediately important. The other thing needed by the exec- 
utive board is intelligent, constructive criticism. If they attempt some- 
thing which should not be attempted, or if they perform in an inade- 
quate way something that ought to be performed well the board must 
expect and should receive criticism. Such criticism is certainly invited 
by the present executive board. It must be remembered, however, that 
criticism which simply says something else might have been done or 
that the thing done might have been done in some other way is not 
very constructive because it only indicates that the judgment of the 
critic is different from that of the executive board. It may well be that 
the members of the executive board have not selected the best thing 
or done that thing in the best way since they are only human; but 
inasmuch as the association has impowered them to take such decisions 
they have to accept the responsibility and do the best they can. Sugges- 
tions and constructive criticism therefore will be welcome. Let us 
have plenty of each. 

AZARIAH S. ROOT, 

President.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



ANNUAL REPORTS, 1920-21 
SWAMPSCOTT CONFERENCE, JUNE 20-27, 1921 

SECRETARY'S REPORT 



The effort to "return to normalcy" at 

A. L. A. Headquarters has been an effort 

to establish a normal post-war status, not 

an effort to return to the pre-war status. 

At the beginning of the year we were 
still operating several departments of the 
war service organization. During the year 
the library service for American farces in 
Germany, and for the American troops 
outside continental United States, was 
turned over to the War Department. The 
library service for tha lighthouses and 
light ships, which the A. L. A. had helped 
to reorganize was turned over to the Light- 
house Bureau. The Coast Guar,d library 
service, for which the A. L. A. had pro- 
vided some books and magazines, was 
released entirely to the library commis- 
sions of the various states. The merchant 
marine library service, which had been 
established on a large scale in ocean-going 
vessels and lake carriers, was discon- 
tinued. The New York Dispatch Office, 
and all other dispatch offices, were closed. 
All books not in use were distributed 
(mostly through State Library Commis- 
sions) except those which are being held 
for the possible use of the merchant ma- 
rine service if it is reopened by some 
other organization. 

At the end of the year we are still find- 
ing it necessary to operate the very con- 
siderable hospital library service in spite 
of the active efforts of the Executive 
Board, of the Committee on the Transfer 
of War Service Activities and of the head 
of the hospital department, to transfer it 
to the Federal Government. The work for 



the blind has been merged with the en- 
larged activities of the Association. 

At the beginning of the year we were in 
a very uncertain status as regards the 
Enlarged Program campaign. During the 
year the campaign was brought to an end. 
The Enlarged Program campaign account 
was closed in February, 1921. The end of 
the year finds the A. L. A. Headquarters 
administering some "enlarged activities" 
on a small scale. 

These unusual perhaps we may call 
them extra-normal activities have thrown 
an extraordinarily heavy burden on the 
Executive Board and on the A. L. A. Head- 
quarters organization. What may be called 
the purely secretarial work of the Chicago 
office, that is the work which is the natural 
esult of increased activities of the Execu- 
tive Board and the A. L. A. in general, has 
increased very largely over that of other 
years. There has been also a very con- 
siderable increase in the use of the Chi- 
cago office as a bureau of information, a 
clearing house for library ideas and in- 
formation of all sorts. 

The A. L. A. Headquarters is being called 
upon to carry on very greatly enlarged 
activities with as usual an entirely in- 
adequate income and staff. The result is 
that it has been impossible for the office 
to do its work well. Requests from com- 
munities in states without library com- 
missions for advice on the establishment 
of libraries ; requests for information about 
library buildings, library legislation, sal- 
aries must perforce be answered off-hand 
and on the spur of the moment because

there is not enough time to make an in- 
vestigation and there is almost never suffi- 
cient time or money to enable the members 
of the Headquarters staff to visit com- 
munities needing and wanting the Asso- 
ciation's professional advice. 

Much of the correspondence is answered 
weeks after it arrives. One or two official 
publications have been months late in 
reaching the members of the Association. 

Some way should be found which will 
enable the Headquarters office to do the 
work which seems now to be expected of it. 

An effort has been made in the follow- 
ing paragraphs to state as concretely as 
possible some of the outstanding features 
of the year's work of the A. L. A. Head- 
quarters staff. In many cases the work 
has been done in close cooperation with an 
A. L. A, committee. 

Membership. The President and other 
officers of the Association, the Member- 
ship Committee, a large number of other 
members of the Association and the Head- 
quarters staff have given special atten- 
tion to increasing the membership without 
actually making a membership campaign 
and without spending much money. Be- 
tween aJnuary 1st and June 13th 850 new 
members have been enrolled. This is a 
gain of 19 per cent over the total mem- 
bership (of 4,464) on December 31, 1920. 
The total number of members on June 
13th was 5,314. 

But this number Includes the total mem- 
bership of 1920. It may be somewhat 
reduced unless we are able to avoid the 
losing of the two or three hundred mem- 
bers who may be expected annually to al- 
low their membership to lapse. 

A more detailed statement will be found 
in the report of the Membership 
Committee. 

Employment Service. The placement 
work, always one of the important activ- 
ities of A, L. A. Headquarters, has grown 
very much during the year. An average 
of 150 people are currently registered. 
Notwithstanding this many more vacancies 
are listed than there are people available. 



The demand for graduates of library 
schools has increased. At the beginning 
of the year registrants without formal 
training were outnumbered by those who 
had it. The contrary is true at present. 
The demand for catalogers and children's 
librarians has been far in excess of the 
supply. Increasing opportunities for ref- 
erence librarians are noticeably evident. 

Salaries, taken all in all, are higher 
than a year ago. There are fewer large 
salaries offered but the general scale has 
moved up. Recommendations have been 
requested for positions ranging from $1020 
to $5000 a year. 

In April provision was made by the 
Executive Board for a full time clerical 
assistant for employment work. This has 
resulted in a more organized employment 
service, and the establishment of better 
records. It has also made possible a 
more prompt answering of employment 
correspondence. The employment service 
is in no sense a department but it is a 
growing work carried on as well as the 
limited Headquarters' facilities permit. 

Recruiting for Librarianship. Advan- 
tage has been taken of the many oppor- 
tunities for recruiting in connection with 
the employment work, both by letter and 
personal interview. 

Constant inqiries as to "how to become 
a librarian" are received at Headquarters. 
These have been greatly augmented by 
the active and effective work of the Re- 
cruiting Committee. 

The reprinting of "Books and a voca- 
tion" for free distribution supplied a need 
as did also the printing of the second 
edition of "Training for librarianship." 

The courtesy of the library periodicals 
in printing notes and bibliographies at op- 
portune times furthered the work. 

A circular letter with material for a 
news story or editorial was sent to 209 
American colleges, with satisfactory results. 

The committee on recruiting has worked 
rather more largely than other commit- 
tees through the Headquarters' office. 
Several circular letters have been sent to 



SECRETARY'S REPORT, 1920-21

large mailing lists including college and 
university librarians and vocational 
writers and directors; several thousand 
publications have been distributed and two 
new publications and a placard are in the 
printer's hands as this report is being pre- 
pared. Some of this work has been paid 
for out of the Books for Everybody Fund. 

The report of the Recruiting Committee 
gives detailed information. 

Publications. The Chicago Headquarters 
is the executive office for the Publishing 
Board as well as for the Executive Board 
and the Association in general. Since the 
last conference the Headquarters' and 
Booklist staff have edited and seen 
through the press forty-four separate pub- 
lications. Those which were issued under 
the supervision of the Publishing Board 
have been listed in the Publishing Board's 
report. The following is a list of new 
publications not under the supervision of 
the Publishing Board: 

The Bulletin six numbers, including 
Papers and Proceedings for 1920, and the 
Handbook for 1920. 

Annual reports for the Conference. 

Program for Conference. 

Advance attendance register. 

The Booklist of Revised Braille two 
numbers. 
Program for Mid-Winter Meeting. 

Why join the A. L. A.? 

McCutcheon cartoon poster. 

Recruiting placard. 

Library Work An Opportunity for Col- 
lege Women. 

The Child and the Book, by Christopher 
Morley. A recruiting leaflet (in printer's 
hands). 

Also lists of A. L. A. publications. 

There has been also a large amount of 
direct-by-mail advertising, necessitating 
many thousands of printed forms and 
circulars. 

All of these publications and the eleven 
numbers of The Booklist (counting the 
Index) are distributed by the A. L. A. 
Headquarters. It is estimated that 150,000 



copies of the various publications have 
been sent out from A. L. A. Headquarters, 
some of them in large quantities but per- 
haps at least 50 per cent of them as single 
copies. 

Most of the publications are sold and 
a very large percentage of the sales are 
on charge accounts. The amount of work 
done by the office in filling these orders 
and handling the accounts will be indicated 
by the following list of steps which must 
be taken to complete a transaction: 

Receipt of order. 

Rubber stamped to show orders filled 

Address label. 

Bill figure discount if for library school 
or institutional member. 

Enter on shipping book. 

Wrap. 

Mail, or if express, write express label. 

Enter on stock records. 

Enter on ledger. 

File duplicate bill. 

File order. 

Send statement quarterly. 

When money is received, enter on cash 
book and ledger. 

Two or three of these processes are un- 
necessary in the case of a cash order. 

Uniform Library Statistics. At the 
suggestion of A. L. A. Headquarters the 
Committee on Administration prepared a 
Revised Form for Library Statistics. 
Copies of this form have been sent to all 
institutional members of the A. L. A. and 
many reports have been received from 
these libraries. The information has been 
of use in answering inquiries from various 
libraries, especially about salaries and 
income. 

It is doubtful whether the reports can 
be published this year on account of the 
high cost of printing and the shortage of 
funds. 

Addresses, Lectures and Library Meet- 
ings. The Secretary, the Assistant Secre- 
tary, Miss Bogle, and the editor of The 
Booklist have represented A. L. A. Head- 
quarters at ten state library association 
meetings; four library schools; two sum- 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



mer schools; one state educational asso- 
ciation meeting; the American Booksel- 
ler's Convention and at several other con- 
ventions. More than a score of talks and 
lectures have been given. 

The Association has also been formally 
represented at several meetings of national 
associations and has definitely affiliated 
with the Conference on Coordination of 
National Social Work and with the 
National Council of Agencies Engaged in 
Social Work. 

War Service. The report of the Com- 
mittee on the Transfer of Library War 
Service Activities covers most of this 
ground. Only the facts and figures which 
are considered of outstanding importance 
and which concern the administration of 
the work itself rather than its transfer or 
discontinuance, are included here. 

Hospital Department. A report by the 
head of this department is appended to 
this report of the secretary. 

Merchant Marine Department: When 
the A. L. A. brought its service to the 
American Merchant Marine to a close on 
November 30, 1920, it had distributed 
about 450,000 books and approximately 
150,000 magazines. It had rendered ser- 
vice to vessels 6,710 times, serving 2,892 
different vessels. Of the total number of 
books used approximately 31,000 were for 
the Great Lakes Service. 

Ninety-two thousand volumes which had 
been set aside for merchant marine service 
were reported on hand in November in 
twenty-two American ports, at Sault Ste. 
Marie and in the hands of American Con- 
suls and other representatives at foreign 
ports. It was estimated that probably 
158,000 volumes were still in good condi- 
tion and in use on the vessels. Most of 
the books which remained in the ports 
have been stored for use in the merchant 
marine service if it is reopened by an- 
other organization. 

Coast Guard. 11,951 books were supplied 
to Coast Guard stations from the begin- 
ning of the service to November, 1920. 



Six hundred and sixty-three magazine 
subscriptions were entered. 

Light Houses and Light Ships. 11,314 
books were supplied and some help was 
given to the Light House Bureau in the 
reorganization of a service which is likely 
to be continuous. 

Coblenz. Library War Service for the 
American Forces in Germany was organ- 
ized shortly after the armistice. A central 
library was maintained with branches and 
stations scattered throughout the area cov- 
ered by American troops. The War Depart- 
ment took over this service Dec. 31, 1920, 
but was unable to appropriate the large 
sum which the Commanding Officer of the 
American Forces in Germany estimated 
would be necessary. The result is that the 
work is being carried on under army su- 
pervision by Y. M. C. A. funds. Miss Eliza- 
beth B. Steere, one of the A. L. A. 
representatives, has been continued in the 
service by the Y. M. C. A. The number 
of books transferred to the army was 
estimated at 33,482. 

Library War Service for Army Outside 
of Continental United States. The books, 
miscellaneous equipment, and the respon- 
sibility for service to the army in the 
Canal Zone, Hawaii, Philippine Islands 
and Alaska were formally transferred to 
the War Department during the year. 

American Library in Paris, Inc. The 
A. L. A. Executive Board appointed the 
following persons as representatives of 
the A, L. A. on the Board of Directors 
of the American Library in Paris, Inc.: 

Laurence V. Bene"t. 

Walter V. R. Berry. 

Rev. A. S. V. Blunt. 

Prof. Charles Cestre. 

Charles L. Seeger. 

A formal release of all books, equipment 
and responsibility for service, signed by 
the President and the Secretary of the 
A. L. A., was sent to the Board of Di- 
rectors of the American Library in Paris, 
Inc., In August, 1920. A report of the 
librarian together with much other infor- 



SECRETARY'S REPORT, 1920-21 



mation about the activities of the library 
will be found in the Year Book for 1921, 
which is being distributed from Paris. 

The financial responsibility of the A. L. 
A. will end with Mr. Carlton's service in 
July, 1921, but the Executive Board has 
voted to "contribute from the War Funds 
to the American Library in Paris, Inc., 
a sum of $25,000 as an endowment fund, 
the income to be used in paying in part 
the salary in that library of an assistant 
trained in an American library school. 
This gift is made subject to the condition 
that the selection of such assistant shall 
be approved by the Executive Board of 
the American Library Association. The 
exact form of the bequest is subject to 
legal formalities and to the approval of 
the Board of Directors of the American 
Library in Paris, Inc." 

Books for the Blind: Nineteen titles, 
comprising thirty-five volumes, have been 
put into Braille Grade One and One-Half 
by the A. L. A. during the last year. The 
Association also had a part in putting 
one title of five volumes into Moon type 
at the special request of the donor. There 
are now three books in press. The work 
is under the voluntary supervision of Mrs. 
Gertrude T. Rider, Library of Congress, 
in close cooperation with the Committee 
on Work with the Blind and the A. L. A. 
Headquarters. 

A. L. A. Headquarters has printed and 
aided in the distribution of two numbers 
of the Booklist of Revised Braille prepared 
by a sub-committee of the Committee on 
Work with the Blind. 

This work is being continued as a part 
of the enlarged activities of the A. L. A. 

Enlarged Activities. On April 2, 1921, 
the Executive Board approved a Books 
for Everybody Budget of $12,057.75, after 
voting $20,447.21 into the Endowment 
Fund. The budget included (1) Library 
extension, (2) Booklists, reading courses, 
book publicity, (3) Library publicity, (4) 
Books and work for the blind, (5) Survey 
(Committee of Five on Library Service), 



(6) Certification, (7) Recruiting, (8) Mer- 
chant Marine, (9) Hospitals, (10) Coast 
guard. The budget was, for the most part, 
based on gifts for specific purposes. 

The small amount for the Coast guard 
was spent in the purchase of books for 
a Coast Guard Station. That given for 
hospitals was transferred to the War 
Funds for the use of the hospital de- 
partment. The money given for the Mer- 
chant Marine is being held for that ser- 
vice when it is re-established. 

The money for the survey and for cer- 
tification has been set aside for the use 
of two committees. The work for the 
blind is going forward as reported above. 
The amount for recruiting is being used 
by Headquarters and the recruiting com- 
mittee. What has been accomplished so 
far is stated above and in the committee's 
report. 

In addition we have reprinted several 
thousand copies of the leaflet "A County 
Library," for limited distribution in states 
without library commissions and at 
national meetings, as for example, of the 
N. E. A. and the National Conference of 
Social Work. Copies have been distributed 
to county school superintendents who at- 
tended the meeting of the Department of 
Superintendents at Atlantic City, to presi- 
dents and chairmen of the State Federa- 
tions of Women's Clubs, to county school 
superintendents in five states which are 
without library commissions. In some 
cases they were sent directly from this 
office with circular letters. 

An edition of a few hundred copies of 
"Book Wagons, the County Library with 
Rural Book Delivery," have been taken 
over from the Publishing Board for sim- 
ilar distribution. Copies of the County 
Library leaflet and Book Wagon pamphlet 
have been mailed to the officers of the 
various Country Life Associations through- 
out the country, and to professors of rural 
economics and rural sociology in many 
colleges and universities. 

Pictures and material for a series of 
articles on "The Use of Books," have been 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



prepared for a boys' magazine with a 
large national circulation. Material for 
articles on the use of books and the de- 
velopment of libraries has been sent to 
several periodicals, especially those that 
circulate to rural readers. 

The secretary has served as associate 
editor of a special County Library Number 
of the Sierra Educational News. 

We are sending a personal letter to edi- 
tors of practically all the house organs 
whose addresses could be obtained, sug- 
gesting the publication of a special book 
and library number. The letter also offers 
some help from A. L. A. Headquarters, if 
such help is desired. 

A few hundred copies of a pamphlet, 
"Workshops for Assembling Business 
Facts," by Dorsey W. Hyde, Jr., with an 
intoductory note by Herbert Hoover, have 
been taken over from the Publishing 
Board for use in encouraging the develop- 
ment of business libraries. Copies are for 
sale to libraries by the Publishing Board, 
but will be sent free of charge to business 
men making inquiries about the etsablish- 
ment of business libraries. 

Heaquarters has acted in an advisory 
capacity to the National Director of the 
Junior Red Cross relative to the value of 
the Junior Red Cross News in children's 
reading rooms. An article intended to 
stimulate reading and the use of books 
by children is being prepared for the News. 

Much publicity material is being col- 
lected for use in the general field of library 
publicity and in the special field of book 
publicity. The material is for possible use 
in magazine articles and exhibits and for 
lecture slides. 

Book notes are being furnished regu- 
larly by The Booklist staff to a news 
agency which supplies these notes to news- 
papers throughout the country for use on 
the children's page. 

Preliminary steps have been taken 
which we hope will result in the issuing, 
by other organizations in cooperation with 
the A. L. A., of reading courses on impor- 
tant subjects. 



Correspondence. This report would be 
incomplete without some mention of the 
vast quantity of letters coming daily to 
Headquarters' office. These cover prac- 
tically every library subject from book 
selection to duties of staff, from how to 
apply for a Carnegie grant to minute de- 
tails of building, from how to put on a 
local library campaign to how to procure 
the establishment of a state library 
commission. 

From many directions come evidences 
of an awakened library consciousness 
which, if careful attention is given them, 
offer to the Association opportunities to 
fulfill its purpose "to foster the develop- 
ment of libraries and promote the use of 
books." Many of the inquiries can be 
answered by available printed material or 
by reference to committees but others re- 
quire individual replies often necessitating 
research which is hampered by inadequate 
facilities at Headquarters. An organized 
library, such as the Association advocates 
for other organizations and corporations, 
would greatly advance its own work. 

A New Accounting System. With the 
approval of the Executive Board and the 
Finance Committee a new simplified and 
unified system of bookkeeping and a new 
method of paying bills are being installed 
under the supervision' of Marwick, Mitchell 
& Co., accountants. 

Headquarters. At the beginning of the 
year it was assumed that the A. L. A. 
would find it necessary during the year 
to rent offices for its Headquarters' use. 
The end of the year, however, finds us 
still enjoying the hospitality of the Chi- 
cago Public Library. The Newberry Li- 
brary has recently set aside a large space 
for the storage of A. L. A. material. The 
Association is under obligation to various 
libraries and other agencies in different 
parts of the country which are storing 
material, especially war service corre- 
spondence and books for merchant marine 
service, without expense to the Association. 

The Staff. The A. L. A. Headquarters 
staff consists of secretary, two assistant 



SECRETARY'S REPORT, 1920-21 



secretaries, a general assistant who 
serves as private secretary and has charge 
also of the sale of publications, a book- 
keeper, two stenographers, a typist, an 
editorial assistant, an office girl and an 
office boy, the last three being on part 
time. The Booklist staff at present in- 
cludes an editor, two assistants, a stenog- 
rapher and a temporary assistant engaged 
in work on the A. L. A. catalog supple- 
ment. 

The office is not highly organized. The 
staff has expanded naturally and some- 
what rapidly. Gradually definite functions 
are being assigned to certain persons to 
the end that the work may be done more 
systematically but the office is still small 
enough to enable each person to know 
about and do several things. 

Although this is called the secretary's 
report it could be more accurately desig- 
nated as the report of the Headquarters' 
staff. The work done in Chicago is not 
that of one individual but of all the per- 
sons who make up the Headquarters or- 
ganization. They have all given their best 
service to forward the interests of the 
American Library Association and the 
American library profession. 

CARL H. MILAM, 

Secretary. 

HOSPITAL DEPARTMENT 
With a Congressional appropriation pro- 
viding for the continuation of libraries for 
ex-service men in hospitals, the final stage 
of the Hospital Library Service of the 
American Library Association has been 
reached. 

Hospital library work, begun in Febru- 
ary, 1917, as an adjunct to Camp Library 
Work, had by June 1918 developed into 
a separate department of the Library War 
Service with twenty-four librarians and 
two supervisors carrying on the work. By 
June 1919 there were in America in this 
branch of the service one hundred and 
forty-five librarians and six supervisors, 
and reading matter had been supplied to 



all hospitals and transcontinental hos- 
pital trains. In France between Novem- 
ber, 1918, and April, 1919, libraries were 
organized in one hundred and twenty-one 
hospitals and trained workers were placed 
in a number of base centers. 

On November 1, 1919, the contents of the 
libraries in this country and the neces- 
sary personnel to administer them were 
turned over to the War and Navy De- 
partments. This left the sick and wounded 
ex-service men without library service; 
so the same season that saw the Ameri- 
can Library Association service trans- 
ferred to these departments saw plans un- 
der way for taking care of the library 
needs of the ex-service men in hospitals. 
These plans included service to the men 
in Public Health Service and Contract Hos- 
pitals and in National Soldiers' Homes 
caring for War Risk beneficiaries. 

Organization: The original plans for 
these libraries included for the large hos- 
pitals the appointment of a librarian for 
every three hundred patients and an as- 
sistant for every three hundred additional; 
a small carefully selected library, a cen- 
trally located room to be set aside by the 
hospital authorities for the use of the am- 
bulate patients, and hospital personnel, 
and delivery of books and periodicals to 
the wards. For the smaller hospitals the 
plans included the purchase of books and 
magazines and newspapers. The distribu- 
tion of this material to be in the hands of 
the Red Cross or some volunteer who 
would act under the supervision of a field 
supervisor or a representative from a 
nearby public library. 

Owing to lack of funds and the uncer- 
tainty of future action of the Government 
these plans have never been fully de- 
veloped. Books and periodicals have been 
purchased for all hospitals caring for ex- 
service men when some one could be found 
to supervise this distribution, but prac- 
tically no new personnel has been ap- 
pointed since November 1920, although 
several hospitals have been opened since 
this date.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



We are today (June, 1921) giving service 
to 59 Public Health Service Hospitals, 95 
Contract Hospitals, and 3 National Sol- 
diers Homes. There are in the American 
Library Association employ three super- 
visors, sixteen librarians and six assist- 
ants. In addition to these there is, in 
every hospital served, some one who has 
pledged to check the periodicals and see 
that the men receive the books and maga- 
zines supplied. This volunteer service, 
while much appreciated, has the advan- 
tages and limitations of volunteer service 
in any library. 

Of our own representatives too much 
cannot be said for the spirit with which 
they have worked. They have not known 
from month to month whether the work 
v:as to be continued, they have had 
no recognized place in the hospital or- 
ganization, and in some cases have had 
active opposition on the part of the au- 
thorities to overcome, but in spite of this 
they have gone forward quietly and 
steadily, and have made a place for the li- 
brary in every hospital with which they 
have been connected. It is due to their 
work that library service today has a 
recognized place in Government hospitals. 

Books, Magazines, Newspapers: To all 
hospitals with a librarian an initial collec- 
tion of books, numbering from 500 to 2,000 
volumes has been sent. This collection has 
been added to by purchase of books se- 
lected by headquarters and in response to 
demands from hospital librarians. The 
number of volumes in the hospitals where 
there were librarians in April, 1921, was 
55,000. The circulation of books in these 
hospitals for a year was approximately 
200,000. During March, 1921, the books cir- 
culated amounted to 21,708. The circula- 
tion of books at one hospital during that 
month was 2,520 volumes. 

At the majority of hospitals without a 
librarian collections of books (based upon 
the number of men in the hospitals) have 
been sent to the Red Cross representatives 
who have distributed the books through 
the wards. No record has been kept of 



this circulation, and no effort has been 
made to conduct a library or to see that 
any except recreational needs were cared 
for. At some hospitals the Educational Di- 
rector of the Vocational Board has taken 
charge of the books. This has meant the 
emphasis has been put upon books re- 
lated to subjects taught to the exclusion 
of all other subjects. 

Standard lists of periodicals have been 
prepared and magazine subscriptions 
placed for all Public Health and many Con- 
tract Hospitals caring for ex-soldiers. The 
number of subscriptions placed has been 
based upon the number of men in the hos- 
pitals. 

The purchase of newspapers has varied 
according to locality. In the hospitals 
located in larger cities, New York, Chi- 
cago, etc., where newsboys are allowed on 
the wards only three or four of the morn- 
ing and evening dailies are purchased for 
reading room use; while at the hospitals 
removed from large centers, Fort Bayard, 
Fort Stanton, Greenville, etc., through the 
co-operation of the Red Cross, and the 
American Legion, not only metropolitan 
dailies, but "hometown" newspapers are 
subscribed for. Probably no feature of the 
work has proved more popular with the 
men than this. To many men the next 
best thing to the home letter has been 
the paper from the hometown. 

Character of Reading: The variety of 
calls upon the library in a hospital is as 
great as that of a city library, ranging 
from the man who is just learning to read 
English to one who wants the last word 
in auto mechanics, poultry raising, car- 
tooning, etc. The men love to fight over 
again the battles in which they took part, 
and will pore for hours over maps and 
plans of battles. At one hospital the 
librarian writes that she has been able to 
interest the townspeople to purchase recre- 
ational books and magazines needed; so 
that she would like the money to be ex- 
pended by the American Library Associa- 
tion to be used for Divisional Histories. 
The greatest demand of course is for fie- 



SECRETARY'S REPORT, 1920-21 



9 



tion. The librarian at one of the Tuber- 
culosis Hospitals writes: 

"While the greatest proportions of books 
going out are fiction and the most popular 
taste is for western and detective stories, 
there are enough demands for more 
'meaty' reading to show a quite prevalent 
desire for good literature. James' 'Talks 
on Psychology' has found a number of ap- 
preciative readers one man re-reading 
parts for the third time, so impressed was 
he with the thought; Emerson's Essays 
have been much read, even to the extent 
of being used by one patient as a 
standard of comparison for subsequent 
reading, much of which he found trivial 
when measured against Emerson! In the 
same was Kipling's 'Light that Failed,' 
read in close proximity to a 'wild west' 
story made the latter seem purposeless to 
another patient. These are just a few in- 
stances of the discrimination which the 
patients are constantly disclosing in their 
reading. 

"To look over a list of their requests 
for the month is enough to justify the ex- 
clamation of an assistant in the public li- 
brary when confronted with, a sample 
'My what heavy reading those men do!' 
Here are a few of the month's special wants 
Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, 
Brown's Religio Medici, Gibbs People of 
Destiny, Wilde's De Profundis, Dante's Di- 
vine Comedy, Ingersoll's Works, Margot 
Asquith's Diary, Poor Richards' Almanac, 
Yale Talks by Dean Brown (Brown's Mix- 
ture one man calls them) Italy's Part in 
the War, Ancient History, How to Look 
at Pictures, etc. 

"So much for the 'culural' wants! Here 
are some of their technical ones, Books on 
Cartooning, Commercial Art, Farm An- 
imals, Poultry, Fur-Bearing Animals, Short- 
hand, Photography, Agriculture in Kan- 
sas, Shoe and Leather Trade, the Tele- 
phone and Forestry." 

Co-operation With Public Libraries: The 
effectiveness of the hospital service has 
been very much enhanced by the whole- 
hearted co-operation of the public libraries 
throughout the country. 

Not strictly library co-operation, and yet 
the sort of thing which makes for friend- 
liness and good feeling was that shown by 
Miss Cornelia Marvin, librarian of the 
Oregon State Library, who interested the 
Salem War Mothers and the American 
Legion of Salem, Ore., in sending Christ- 



mas presents of jams to the boys in the 
Fort Bayard hospital. 

The librarians of the public libraries 
of Cleveland, Detroit, Evansville, Pitts- 
burgh, and Kansas City have sent assist- 
ants from time to time to small Public 
Health Service Hospitals in their cities to 
distribute books and magazines sent by 
the American Library Association and to 
take books from their own libraries, in 
response to demands on the part of the 
patients and staff. 

Practically all the libraries and library 
commissions when called upon have been 
most liberal with loans to the hospitals. 

Co-operation with Other Agencies: The 
library co-operation was to be expected but 
the co-operation with other agencies has 
been equally disinterested and generous. 
The Assistant Surgeon General in charge 
of hospitals in the Public Health Service 
has supported our work to the utmost and 
many of the Commanding Officers have 
given space for our libraries at the ex- 
pense of other branches of the service. 

The Red Cross has stood by us in this 
work as in all our hospital experience. In 
November when it appeared that the work 
must be abandoned because of the lack of 
American Library Association War Funds 
to continue it, Miss Ruth V. Emerson, in 
charge of the Bureau of Medical Social 
Service of the American Red Cross, said: 
"This is one of the most important parts 
of the Medical Social Service and it must 
be continued" and it was upon her very 
earnest recommendation that the Red 
Cross took over the salaries of the hos- 
pital department in December (the money 
covering this item has since been returned 
to the Red Cross). 

The Red Cross also sent word to a num- 
ber of the hospitals asking their workers 
to get from the men statements concern- 
ing the value of the work, and what it 
would mean if this work was discontinued. 
There were literally hundreds of letters 
sent in 'by the men, many of them pathetic, 
some humorous. A patient in one of the 
hospitals wrote: 



10 



"I have been a patient in this hospital 
for nearly a year and will say that the use 
of the books in this library with the help- 
ful suggestions of the librarian, has really 
opened up a new world to me. For several 
months I was a bed patient and reading 
was the only thing I could do. At that 
time I read several books a week besides 
the papers and magazines. I am now well 
on the road to recovery and can say with- 
out exaggeration that books have been an 
important factor in the overcoming of the 
diseases. I know many patients here now, 
who are confined to their beds and whose 
only occupation is in reading. It is rest 
and contentment of mind which overcomes 
tuberculosis and in my mind the hospital 
could do away with most anything but its 
books." 
Another wrote: 

"As this library has been of so much 
use and comfort to me and my fellow pa- 
tients during our long sojourn in this place, 
I feel moved to write you a personal letter 
in behalf of the patients of Ward 16. As 
you may know, this is a sick ward, and the 
only way that the majority of us have to 
pass away the long hours of the day, is 
through reading the books and magazines 
that the librarian brings us. I am sure 
that we feel that we might more easily 
give up our doctors rather than our books. 
As I passed through the ward this after- 
noon, I took note of the boys who had 
books or magazines lying on their stands. 
Out of the 40 patients in this ward only 
one or two had no reading material on 
hand, one, because he had never learned to 
read, and another because he was too ill 
to do so." 

Hospitals Served: Attached is a list of 
hospitals served. The majority of these 
hospitals have been visited by a field sup- 
ervisor, a librarian from a public health 
service hospital, or a representative from 
a nearby public library. This has meant 
that the men have had access not only to 
books donated and purchased for their par- 
ticular needs, but that they have had the 
book collections of large city libraries to 
draw upon, and that collections in the pub- 
lic health service hospitals have been 
available to men in nearby contract hos- 
pitals. 

On the list of hospitals served the word 
".Librarian" indicates that there is a full 
time librarian on duty at the hospital, in 



some cases a librarian and an assistant. 
"Public Library" indicates that a repre- 
sentative from the public library visits the 
hospital at regular intervals, and reports 
to headquarters any book and magazine 
needs that cannot 'be supplied by the pub- 
lic library or some local agency. "Super- 
visor" indicates that the hospital is under 
the supervision and receives visits from 
the field supervisor of the hospital depart- 
ment. 

Transfer of Service: While the details 
of the transfer of the service and its con- 
duct by the government have not been 
agreed upon sufficient funds have been ap- 
propriated to assure adequate library serv- 
ice to the sick and wounded ex-service 
men. One hundred thousand dollars has 
been provided by Congress for the pur- 
chase of tooks and magazines for the 
beneficiaries of the War Risk, and the 
Comptroller of the Treasury has ruled 
that funds may be expended for per- 
sonnel to select these books and admin- 
ister the libraries in hospitals. This 
means that when these libraries are trans- 
ferred to the government assurance is 
given that they will be continued along 
lines laid down by the American Library 
Association, that professional service, the 
employment of trained librarians to super- 
vise the work will be considered an essen- 
tial part of every public health service 
hospital conducting a library. 

The active responsibility of the Ameri- 
can Library Association for the conduct of 
these libraries will probably be brought to 
a close during the summer, but until the 
work is firmly established as a government 
activity it is the wish of the Bureau of 
War Risk and the Public Health authori- 
ties that the American Library Associa- 
tion continue its service in an advisory 
capacity. 

The care of the ex-soldiers is one of the 
greatest problems facing our country to- 
day. The number of ex-service men in 
hospitals is still increasing at about the 
rate of one thousand a month, and will 
continue at this rate for three or four

years. Library service in these hospitals 
is a problem worthy of thoughtful consid- 
eration by the best minds of the profes- 
sion. Hospital library service should mean 
service to patients, doctors, and nurses, 
and this many sided service has still to be 
adequately developed. This branch of the 
service is in its infancy and the standards 
established in government hospitals should 
serve as a model for all hospitals. The 
American Library Association has begun 
the work; may it be a matter of pride with 
the association to foster its growth and 
lend its best advise to establishing and 
maintaining proper library standards in 
government hospitals.

A. L. A. PUBLISHING BOARD, 1920-21 



THE REPORT OF THE AMERICAN LIBR 

ARY ASSOCIATION PUBLISHING BOARD 

FOR 1920-1921 

The duty of presenting another report to 
the Association is an unexpected one. As- 
suming that the Association would adopt 
a new constitution at the Colorado Springs 
conference and that this Board would then 
go out of existence, we supposed that the 
report then rendered would be our last 
and we worded it in what we conceived to 
be the proper strain of gentle melancholy. 
Owing, however, to the failure of that con- 
ference to adopt the constitution, the As- 
sociation has been under the necessity of 
living for another year under the old one, 
and as this provides for a Publishing Board 
and prescribes its duties, we have still 
something to report. We have endeavored 
with the funds at our disposal to put in 
print such material as would seem to be 
most helpful to the average librarian, with 
the understanding that the scope of libra- 
rianship has now become so greatly 
widened and diversified that the average is 
increasingly unlike any of the items of 
which it forms the average. Some of our 
publications have met with favor and 
large sales, and others have entailed a con- 
siderable loss. It is not our understanding 
that these latter require an apology of any 
kind. An apology is due only when we is- 
sue something that is not found to meas- 
ure up to our expectations of helpfulness. 
We do not conceive it to be our business 
to carry on the work of publication for 
gain, but rather to turn over purely com- 
mercial enterprises to commercial publish- 
ers, and to limit ourselves so far as pos- 
sible to the issue of valuable and helpful 
material that could under no circumstances 
find a publisher on merely commercial con- 
ditions. 

We conceive that this must always be 
the general plan under which a body like 
the American Library Association must 
conduct a publishing business, whether it 



is immediately superintended by a salaried 
officer, a board, or a committee.

The Booklist Total subscriptions to 

The Booklist now are as follows: Retail 



subscriptions to commissions, libraries, 
and individuals, 4,305; sent to library 
members and affiliated state associations 
as part of their membership perquisites, 
758; free list, 119; total, 5,182 (as against 
4,813 reported last year. The discontinu- 
ance of bulk subscriptions has caused a de- 
crease in subscriptions placed by commis- 
sions, but the subscriptions from libraries 
have considerably increased.) 

Miss May Massee, editor of The Book- 
list, reports as follows: 

"The Booklist is becoming more firmly 
established each year as the librarians' 
choice of books published in this country. 
Among the staffs of the sixty odd libra- 
ries which contribute to the work there 
are an increasing number of specialists in 
the various fields. Year by year these spe- 
cialists' opinions grow more valuable and 
add just that much more special knowl- 
edge to the background of The Booklist 
notes. 

"The most notable special addition to our 
file of book notes this year has come from 
the Children's Librarians Section of the 
A. L. A. At the Colorado Springs meet- 
ing a committee was appointed to find 
three or more libraries for each month to 
send special notes on children's books. The 
correspondence necessary was done by the 
committee. The Booklist merely sent 
printed tentative lists to the various mem- 
bers designated. This has resulted in hun- 
dreds of children's book notes, as numbers 
of librarians have continued to send notes 
after their stated 'terms' have expired. 
The result has been evident in the lists, 
which have been shorter, but better. The 
help from children's librarians has never 
been on so satisfactory a basis, and it is to 
be hoped that a special committee for this 
work will be continued from year to year. 

"This growing help from children's li- 
brarians argues well for the children's 
book selection in the A. L. A. Catalog Sup- 
plement. It also argues well for the pos- 
sible special lists of graded children's 
books, and a special short Christmas list 
for a wide distribution. 



A. L. A. PUBLISHING BOARD, 1920-21

"All letters to the Association asking 
about books or book selection are referred 
to The Booklist for answer. This corre- 
spondence is growing so that if it were 
really given the time it needs it could ab- 
sorb half the time of a good assistant in 
looking up special lists, giving informa- 
tion on special titles, often those which 
have been excluded from The Booklist, 
etc. Requests for information come from 
all over the country, quite as many from 
individuals not connected with libraries 
as from librarians. 

"The use of The Booklist is growing out- 
side of the libraries. There are more in- 
dividual subscriptions and more evidences 
of interest such as the order for five new 
subscriptions, one to each member of the 
library board, in a small town; or the or- 
der for six copies from a library which 
puts them in magazine binders and says 
that they circulate very well with the 
other magazines. 

"The Booklist Books, 1920, was printed 
in an edition of three thousand. Of these 
about twenty-five hundred have been sold, 
June 1. The edition will undoubtedly be 
exhausted long before the appearance of 
The Booklist Books, 1921. For The Book- 
list Books, 1919, only two thousand were 
printed. This increase in sales is conclu- 
sive proof of the use of The Booklist Books 
of the year. The Booklist Books of the 
year adds the work of checking over all 
Booklist titles for the year, making a card 
list of the first choice, making and print- 
ing a tentative list sent to about thirty- 
five libraries, recording votes as returned, 
making final choice of titles to be included 
and seeing the copy through the press. 



This entails about as much work as one- 
half a Booklist and much of it has to be 
done outside of regular time. 

"The professional spirit which results in 
more notes sent to The Booklist from all 
over the country is being shown in the at- 
titude of librarians to the work on the 
next supplement to the A. L. A. Catalog. 
It is making a joy of that work. One li- 
brary writes 'this Division feels honored 
that you have referred the problem to us. 
We in the Department will be pleased to 
undertake the compilation of this list'; 
another writes, 'of course, we will go over 
it for you and no matter what the size of 
the job is, it will be our pleasure to do it. 
If The Booklist needs the help we are just 
the fellows who will give it, if possible.' 
There is no space to quote from numbers 
of letters which all express the same sort 
of willingness and the same sort of pro- 
fessional pride in the result. These let- 
ters are proof that the knowledge devel- 
oped in intimate use of the books is at 
the service of any who need it. They mean 
that each new supplement to the A. L. A. 
Catalog will represent the work of more 
librarians and a wider field of interest. 
Surely no single accomplishment of the 
A. L. A. as a whole, means more than this 
free contribution given anonymously, sim- 
ply for the good of the cause. 

"On the other hands the need for the new 
supplement is expressed in innumerable 
requests for the selected list 'which we 
need right away,' or 'I hope you will 
hurry up the Catalog. I need it for my 
classifying,' etc."

COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



BOOKBINDING 

The main work of the year has 'been the 
care and the scheduling of the two travel- 
ling exhibits, and credit for a successful 
itinerary is entirely due Miss Wheelock. 
These exhibits have been shown at twenty- 
three places since the last report was 
made, with six requests to be filled before 
August 1st. The exhibits were overhauled, 
revised, and a few additions made in Feb- 
ruary. This frequent revision seems neces- 
sary that the material be made as helpful 
and timely as possible. Letters of appre- 
ciation received show that the exhibits are 
helping to answer a need. 

The proposed pamphlet on Binding for 
Schools and School Libraries has prog- 
ressed slowly, and now is awaiting action 
toward cooperation with the educational 
committee. 

The usual number of inquiries have been 
answered and the booklet on Mending and 
repair of books has been revised and a 
fourth printing issued.

BOOK BUYING 

With this report the Committee on Book 
Buying comes of age. It was formed in 
1901 as a Committee on Relations with 
the Booktrade to combat the raised prices 
of the net system. This system had <been 
introduced the preceding year with the or- 
ganization of the American Publishers' 
Association and the American Booksellers' 
Association in the attempt to check ruin- 
ous price-cutting under which publishers 
were failing and bookstores were going 
rapidly out of existence. The new order 
fixed the retail price of a book for the first 
year after its publication. From this price 
the libraries received on non-fiction a dis- 
count of but 10% as against the usual 
third off. In inaugurating the system the 
publishers promised such a reduction in 
the list price as to result in an actual ad- 



vance of but 8% in the cost of such books 
to libraries. Widespread observation, 
however, seemed to show an average ad- 
vance of 20%. Hence the A. L. A. Com- 
mittee. 

At the same time similar agitations were 
being conducted in England and Germany, 
though over there no discount at all was 
allowed. Consequently there was much 
wigwagging between New York and 
London. For two years the American com- 
mittee tried negotiation with the A. P. A., 
without apparent result, though the Chair- 
man of that day claimed imminent success 
was spoiled only by the untimely resolu- 
tions of certain library organizations. 
Then came a new committee pledged to 
strong action. Frontal attack, however, 
produced no more evident result than had 
the policy of conciliation; the committee's 
name after a year was changed to its pres- 
ent title, and it entered upon an energetic 
program of instruction in economic buying, 
issuing from 1903 to 1908 a series of thirty- 
five card bulletins, reprinted in library 
periodicals, and sent to 3,000 addresses as 
a sort of correspondence course for small 
libraries. They counseled importation, de- 
layed purchase, use of second-hand cata- 
logs, remainder sales and auctions; they 
sought to arrange concerted buying, and 
checkmated adverse legislation at Wash- 
ington. In the press this was known as the 
Librarians' Strike. 

Then followed a lull of five or six years, 
with new attempts at a rapprochement, 
and then final dissolution of the A. P. A. 
in 1915, following certain court actions in 
allied cases which seemed to indicate that 
the publishers had been acting in restraint 
of trade and therefore violating the Sher- 
man Act. These decisions led quickly to 
a run on Congress for legislation in the in- 
terest of price maintenance. In one in- 
stance the libraries' right of discount was 
at once involved. So for six years the 
Stephens Bill (H. R. 9671) and its pre- 
cursor have been of concern to us all. 



22 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



Official representation led to amendment 
excluding libraries from its application. 

Finally, as war's aftermath, last year's 
Committee denounced the German Bor- 
senverein's system of inflated prices 
against foreign countries on the basis of 
their monetary exchange status, and par- 
ticularly the instances of special discrim- 
ination against the United States. 

In view of this record it becomes the 
first duty of the present Committee to re- 
port that the Stephens Bill still reposes in 
committee duly amended in our favor. It 
seems certairi to remain thus dormant dur- 
ing the present Extra Session of Congress. 
The libraries' argument for exemption lies, 
of course, in the fact (1) that they are ed- 
ucational institutions, mostly supported by 
public taxation, and (2) that they are 
virtually wholesale purchasers. 

This Committee's positive program dur- 
ing the six months of its existence has 
centered on foreign buying. This was sug- 
gested in the letter of its appointment. It 
became, thus, the residuary legatee of the 
war-time Committee on Importations. It 
has, however, had nothing to buy or sell. 
Its service has been advisory and, harking 
back to an early model, the advice has been 
given in a series of eight bulletins appear- 
ing in the following issues of the Library 
Journal: January 1 and 15; February 1 and 
15; March 15; April 15; May 1; and June 
1, 1921. 

Two questions have been handled and by 
their nature they have of necessity chiefly 
interested the larger and the technical li- 
braries, though they ought to concern all. 
One is as old as the Association and will 
doubtless outlast it; the other is unique in 
our annals, as the War, its progenitor, is 
happily so. 

The former covers the practice of Ameri- 
can publishing houses' charging unduly 
high prices for their imported English 
issues. Time and again in past years has 
this Committee published the London and 
New York prices of the same editions, and 
advised importation as a steady habit. 
When there seemed danger that we would 



shake off sloth or timidity and act whole- 
sale on such sound advice, the attempt was 
made in copyright revision to cut off our 
privilege of importing free of duty. So 
again in the Library Journal of March 15 
(see also April 15), the deadly parallel was 
drawn, showing, on the one hand, three 
large houses listing their English titles at 
74-142% higher in New York than in 
London and, on the other hand, the fourth 
selling its American books in London at 
the New York prices. These list prices are 
the ones charged individuals; to libraries 
they ran 31-90% cheaper when imported 
than when bought in New York. A dif- 
ference of 21% can be explained for this 
is the sum of 15% duty plus 6% ocean 
transportation. The wide divergence is ac- 
counted for by the indefensible practice of 
American houses adding to the price of 
their imported books a sufficient sum to 
cover resale to agents, instead of taking 
this out of the literal discount London 
gives them. Thus the library pays the 
profit of publisher, importer and jobber. 
The proper source of the agent's supply is 
London unless New York contributes the 
agent's discount, and the librarian should 
order no English issue from its New York 
house on terms higher than the following, 
which now lie 'before the publishers as this 
Committee's proposal: English price con- 
verted into American money at current 
rate of exchange and two cents a shilling 
for ocean carriage, plus carriage from New 
York to library. Importing direct from 
England is cheaper still, but if time is an 
important factor, here is a substitute, the 
highest defensible one. As for personal 
orders, librarians ought to find it a pleas- 
ure to save as many of their clientele as 
possible from paying $3.30 to $4.60 for a 
book to be got for $2.30, fresh from the 
press, and cheaper still in a year or two 
perhaps. 

The other situation which has com- 
manded the Committee's attention grew 
out of the demoralized condition of inter- 
national exchange. Foreign money in gen- 
eral, compared with our dollar, fell below 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



23 



par. The American importing agent's 
profit fell proportionately; for if, as an ex- 
ample, the shilling came to be worth, not 
twenty-four cents, but eighteen, the value 
in American money of the discount granted 
in English money to the importer by the 
English publisher shrank thus 25%. If he 
were to make his usual profit he must add 
25% to his usual charge, with the result 
that the library lost the gain that the en- 
hanced purchasing power of the dollar in 
England ought to have brought. Quite 
evidently the Committee had no honorable 
alternative to advising the libraries to 
undertake their own importing. 

If such were the case with English pur- 
chases, how much greater the gain in buy- 
ing directly from France, when the franc 
fell from 19.3 cents to 6 cents, or Italy, 
with the lire melting from 19.3 to 3.5 cents, 
or Germany, seeing the marK drop from 
23.8 cents to 1.5 cents. There was a time, 
for instance, when certain jobbers were 
charging twice the Paris price and eight 
tunes that of Leipzig, though 25% above 
the French rate and five times the German 
one would have yielded the antebellum 
profit. 

In Germany this relatively simple situ- 
ation was complicated by an extraordinary 
measure adopted by the Borsenverein der 
deutschen Biichhandler at the close of 1919 
which has no counterpart in the history 
of international book-selling and has now 
virtually exploded, as set forth in the 
Committee's final bulletin. Its peculiarity 
lay not in the heightened prices charged 
foreigners but in fixing this surplus charge 
against the several countries each week 
according to the status of their exchange. 
Thus while nine cents was the arbitrary 
value assigned the mark for the United 
States in the schedule of February 1, 1920, 
or 660% above the actual value, only 570% 
was set down against England, 380% to 
France, and 370% to Italy, plus a 
Teuerungszuschlag of 20% in all cases. 

The scheme was formulated by certain 
powerful publishers. They were a year 
in getting its acceptance by the Borsen- 



verein, in which the retailers have a ma- 
jority. But for once the Borsenverein's 
decree was defied by numerous important 
exporters, and it remained a dead letter 
till April, 1920. On that date the Govern- 
ment, on appeal of the publishers, assumed 
the enforcement. From that time onward 
its authority was respected, but less than 
two months were required to show the 
authorities that trade would not move 
under such a condition. Accordingly, 
though the mark was dropping throughout 
last summer, America's percentage was 
kept at 170. This was changed to 250 in 
October, reduced to 200 in January, to 185 
in February. For details see the Com- 
mittee's first bulletin. 

And now comes word that the system of 
having prices obey the fluctuations of 
money is abandoned. Instead the world 
is now divided into two classes according 
to their exchange status. In the upper 
group stand Belgium, China, Denmark, 
Egypt, England, France, Holland, Japan, 
Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the 
United States. In the lower group are 
placed Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Greece, 
Italy, Portugal and Spain. Under this 
arrangement the former countries will be 
charged double the domestic price, the 
latter only 60% more than in Germany. 
The Teuerungszuschlag is cancelled. Now, 
as heretofore, antiquarian items are to be 
exempt. The situation, however, is left 
in a somewhat chaotic state by two 
opposing exceptions: (1) Publishers may 
charge more than 100% if they like; (2) 
publishers may employ the domestic price 
if a bill totals more than M. 300. How the 
new measure will work out, time alone 
can tell. 

Finally, the Committee lent its support 
to a widespread demand that the three 
new volumes proposed as supplements to 
the Eleventh edition of the Encyclopedia 
Brittanica be issued on ordinary as well as 
the India paper alone announced, and in 
buckram with special stitching, as well as 
commercial bindings. The first plea was

The committee was not definitely ap- 
pointed until December 15, 1920, and it 
unfortunately proved impossible to arrange 
for a meeting at the Mid-winter Confer- 
ence at Chicago. There has 'been much 
work by correspondence during the win- 
ter and spring months. 

The tentative Rules for the Cataloging 
of Music, published in advance of the 
Colorado Springs Conference, and again in 
the Proceedings of the Conference, were 
before the Association for comment during 
the year. But few letters have been 
received by the Committee, and it would 
appear that the rules have met with gen- 
eral favor or indifference. 

These rules were submitted to the Com- 
mittee of The [British] Library Associ- 
ation and the following communication was 
received from Mr. John Minto, secretary 
of that Committee. 

"Our Committee on Catalogue Rules had 
a meeting in London on the 18th inst., 
when it was agreed to adopt the Rules 
[for music] formulated by the A. L. A. 
Committee, with the under-mentioned 
alterations: 



(1) After the words 'added entry' insert 
'when desirable.' 

Our Committee considered that added 
entry under editor, reviewer, or ar- 
ranger might not be desirable in all 
circumstances. 

(2) Substitute the following- 
Enter librettos under composer with 

added entry under librettist. Enter 
librettos, without music, under librettist. 
(4) To read 

If title-page is insufficient or mislead- 
ing add cover-title or caption-title in 
square brackets, whichever contains the 
better description of the work; or, if 
necessary, make a composite title from 
these sources. 

(10) After 'included' insert 'in orches- 
tral music band parts to 'be stated.' 

With regard to Rule 4, our Committee 
are of the opinion that it is desirable in 
all cases to give the wording of the title- 
page" 

To these suggestions (save for the rule 
concerning librettos) the A. L. A. Com- 
mittee (by correspondence) cordially 
assents. Three members of the Commit- 
tee did not reply to the request for an 
expression of opinion, but six voted favor- 
ably. The rule for librettos is still a mat- 
ter on which the Committee finds it diffi- 
cult, if not impossible, to agree. 

In March, 1921, the Chairman of the 
Committee sent to the members and to 
persons teaching cataloging in the library 
schools four suggestions drawn up by Mr. 
Currier, of Harvard, suggesting changes 
in the existing code. These have resulted 
in a voluminous correspondence, and the 
letters indicate so great a diversity of 
opinion that a meeting of the Committee 
will be necessary before an agreement can 
be reached. It seems probable that the 
Committee will find it wise to issue all 
suggested changes, explanations, and 
amplifications of the present code In pam- 
phlet form, inviting the widest criticism 
and publicity before reaching a recom- 
mendation. 

The Committee is thoroughly impressed 
with the need of caution in recommending 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21

changes in the existing code. The cost of 
carrying into effect such changes is so 
great as to compel the Committee to pro- 
ceed slowly. Meantime, it is willing to 
receive suggestions from any quarter, and 
it stands ready to lend its services (so far 
as possible) in explaining the rules, in 
affording examples of practice, and in the 
interpretation of the code. 

The Committtee still has under consider- 
ation the rules for the cataloging of prints 
and of incunabula.

CIVIL SERVICE RELATIONS 

The Committee on Civil Service relations 
was appointed in pursuance of the follow- 
ing resolution passed by the Council at the 
annual meeting of the Association in 1917: 

Resolved, That the president be author-- 
ized and requested to appoint a committee 
on Civil Service relations to confer with 
the National Assembly of Civil Service 
Commissions and the Council of the Na- 
tional Civil Service Reform League and 
cognate organizations and to report, if 
practicable, at the mid-winter meeting of 
the Council or at the ensuing conference. 

The War intervening, it was impossible 
for the Committee to take any steps to- 
ward carrying out the object of the resolu- 
tion, but on December 15, 1920, the present 
committee was appointed. It agreed to di- 
vide the work of the committee as follows: 
Dr. G. F. Bowerman, on federal relations; 
Mr. M. J. Ferguson, on state relations; 
Mr. C. F. D. Belden and Mr. C. B. Roden, 
on municipal relations; and Mr. P. L. 
Windsor, on the relations between civil 
service administration and standardization 
of libraries. 

At the request of the chairman the pres- 
ident of the National Assembly of civil 
service commissions, Mr. J. J. Reilly, of 
the Massachusetts Civil Service Commis- 
sion, on October 4, appointed the following 
committee of the Assembly to confer with 
us: Mr. Thomas C. Murray, chief examin- 
er of the Municipal Civil Service Commis- 
sion, New York City, chairman, Miss Alice 
R. Taylor, secretary of the Connecticut 
State Commissions, and Mr. Mark H. Place, 



secretary of the Civil Service Commission, 
Milwaukee. 

After the appointment of the members of 
our Committee, December 15, ai>d corre- 
spondence between members of the Com- 
mittee, the following questions were on 
February 24, presented to the Committee 
of the Assembly for their consideration: 

1. If the Library Association will ar- 
range for the compilation of a bibliography 
of civil service in the United States, and 
annual supplements thereto, will the As- 
sembly arrange for its publication? 

2. Will the Assembly unite with the As- 
sociation in asking the Institute for gov- 
ernment research or other similar organ- 
ization to investigate the subject of civil 
service administration, especially in its 
relation to the professional branches of 
service, federal, state, and municipal? 

3. If the Library Association will agree 
upon standards of service, can the Assem- 
bly of civil service commissioners recom- 
mend either the establishment of a gen- 
eral examination board, the recognition of 
the results of examinations given by such 
a board, or the recognition of the results 
of examinations by other civil service com- 
missions adopting the same standards of 
service? 

These questions the Committee of the 
Assembly still have under consideration. 

The president of the National Associa- 
tion of State Libraries, at the request of 
the chairman of the Committee, appointed 
the following committee December 6 to 
draft preliminary specifications for posi- 
tions in state libraries: Mr. M. J. Fergu- 
son, Mr. G. G. Glasier, and Mr. G. S. God- 
ard. 

The assistance of Mr. Miles O. Price of 
the University of Illinois was also secured 
in the investigation of local conditions in 
the State of Illinois.

COMMITTEE ON COMMITTEES 

A letter from the Secretary, under date 
of January 24, 1921, advised the under- 
signed of their appointment by the Presi- 



26 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



dent as a Committee on Committees. The 
same letter stated that: 

"It was understood that the purpose of 
this Committee was to draft a brief state- 
ment showing what is the work of each 
Committee and also to make recommenda- 
tions as to the Committees to be created or 
discontinued." 

The President, writing under date of 
January 29, 1921, repeated and confirmed 
this statement of specifications and added: 

"It would also seem to be within the 
scope of this Committee's duties to suggest 
to the Revision Committee what should be 
properly included in the By-laws regarding 
committees." 

It should be noted that this Committee 
was appointed by the President upon the 
following vote of the Council at the Mid- 
winter Meeting in Chicago on December 
29, 1920: 

"Voted: That the President appoint a 
Committee on Committees to report to the 
Council." 

This vote, and the action taken by au- 
thority thereof, afford a convenient exam- 
ple of the complexities of organization un- 
der the present constitution of the A. L. A. 

Three questions that we consider ger- 
mane to the duties of the Committee on 
Committees as above outlined, suggest 
themselves at the very beginning of our 
investigations. They are: 

1. Has the Council the constitutional 
right to create committees, or to request or 
instruct the President of the American Li- 
brary Association to appoint committees? 

2. Assuming this right, should commit- 
tees so created or appointed be made up of 
persons who are not members of the Coun- 
cil, and have they any authority, jurisdic- 
tion or power whatsoever, except in such 
matters as are expressly delegated to the 
Council in Section 16 of the present Con- 
stitution? 

3. Are the examination of and report 
upon the functions and performances of 
the standing or special committees of the 
American Library Association itself among 
the matters so delegated to the Council in 
Section 16? 

The Constitution throws little light upon 
these questions. Section 14, entitled . 
"Council" begins with an enumeration of 
the persons who shall constitute the Coun- 
cil, but no provision occurs anywhere for 



the creation of a body that shall be known 
as a (or the) Council. It is not an essen- 
tial part of the administrative machinery 
of the Association, whose existence might 
be implied as necessary to give effect to 
the Constitution or the business of the As- 
sociation. In fact, Section 16, setting out 
the "Duties" of this autochthonous body 
quite clearly excludes all possible infer- 
ences or implications of any administra- 
tive or executive functions whatsoever. 
Neither is it anywhere provided or im- 
plied that the President of the Association 
is ex officio the chairman of the Council or 
that that body has not the right to elect 
its presiding officer from its membership 
at large. It should be observed, however, 
that the President is always a member of 
the Council. It seems to have been taken 
for granted that he is therefore its chair- 
man, and subject to its will. 

All deliberative bodies, of course, have 
the right to create and appoint committees 
or to direct their presiding officers to ap- 
point committees so created. The mem- 
bership of such committees is, however, by 
all rules of reason and parliamentary 
practice, limited to persons holding mem- 
bership in the body creating the commit- 
tee, and naturally terminates with the 
termination of their tenure as members of 
the creating body. 

In the present instance the undersigned 
constitute a Committee on Committees, 
created by vote of the Council, to examine 
into, and report back to the latter upon 
matters that by no stretch of interpreta- 
tion can be read into the category of sub- 
jects that the Council, under Section 16, 
"may consider," namely: "questions of 
public and professional interest. . . matters 
of library policy or practice... the policy 
of the Association." It is composed of 
three persons, only one of whom is a Coun- 
cil member; it is appointed by the Presi- 
dent of the A. L. A. under instructions 
from a body which has no express right to 
instruct anybody save its own properly 
chosen officers or sub-committees, and the 
President of the A. L. A. is neither a 
chosen nor a designated officer of the Coun- 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



27 



cil. Its report will be received by the 
same body, without any authority over 
most of the committees reported upon, 
since most of them were not appointed by 
it; nor any power of initiative or revision 
in the premises, unless the Committees of 
the A. L. A. as a whole, their creation, 
their duties or the manner of performance 
of the latter, be assumed as comprehended 
among "questions of public and profes- 
sional interest, matters of library policy or 
practice, or the policy of the Association." 
Unquestionably the report, proceedings or 
researches of one or more of the Commit- 
tees might come, or be brought, to the at- 
tention of the Council as within the scope 
pf its chartered liberties, set out in Sec- 
tion 16. But this should be brought about 
by order of the Association or reference 
from the Executive Board, and it is at 
least not equally unquestionable whether 
a survey of the entire committee machin- 
ery of the A. L. A. can be ordered by the 
Council, save for its own academic inter- 
est and information, such survey to be 
made by a sub-committee of its own mem- 
bers. 

The foregoing is written in no spirit of 
frivolity or hyper-technicality. As was 
said in the beginning, the case of the Com- 
mittee on Committees itself presented a 
clear illustration of the vague and ill-de- 
fined organization set up by the Constitu- 
tion. We have Committees, both standing 
and special, appointed by the Executive 
Board under its undoubted authority both 
expressed and Implied in Section 11 of the 
Constitution. We have other Committees 
appointed by the Council (i.e. presumably 
by the President of the A. L. A. under vote 
of the Council, although the Handbook 
simply says "appointed by the Council") 
which are in effect and from the nature 
of their duties quite as much standing 
committees as those created as such by the 
Executive Board; whose membership com- 
prises persons not members of the Council ; 
which continue indefinitely and are en- 
gaged in work not within the authority of 
the Council (save through sub-committees 
for its own information), and which as- 



sume to represent and speak for the Asso- 
ciation itself without the properly dele- 
gated power so to do. 

We have also committees appointed by 
the Publishing Board and by the various 
sections. They were not regarded as fall- 
ing within the purview of the Committee 
on Committees. 

The common definition of a standing 
committee is: One appointed for the con- 
sideration of an entire group or class of 
subjects, as against a single or special 
topic or problem. It is often vested with 
authority to originate business within its 
jurisdiction and is usually continued in- 
definitely until its whole field has been 
covered or exhausted. 

The Council itself, if it be anything else 
than a voluntary association, is a standing 
committee and nothing more. As such its 
committee appointments should be limited 
to the creation of sub-committees of its 
own membership. On the other hand it 
has, of course, the right to recommend to 
the Association and the Executive Board 
that committees of larger scope and wider 
membership be created. It has not the au- 
thority to vote such creations, and the par- 
liamentary amenities as well as the co- 
ordination of our committee activities 
would be materially served if this view of 
its powers were accepted and the commit- 
tee appointing power for the A. L. A. were 
centralized, say, in the Executive Board. 

Several of our standing committees are 
in reality Commissions of experts, with 
full power to act, to make rulings, deci- 
sions and dispositions and to commit the 
Association to such decisions or to poli- 
cies of national or even international im- 
port without the necessity of reference or 
confirmation. Their reports are simply re- 
ports of progress and their activities are 
apparently and properly subject to no sort 
of revision or supervision whatever, unless 
they themselves choose to submit them to 
conference or discussion. An example of 
this sort of a Commission is the Commit- 
tee on Cataloging), formerly styled the 
Committee on Cataloging Rules. This 
body, although called a Special Commit- 



28 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



tee, is vested with full and absolute pow- 
ers to formulate rules for cataloging and 
to speak for and represent the Association 
in this department. Other Committees with 
a similar plenitude of authority are those 
on Bookbinding, Federal and State Rela- 
tions, Library Administration (this com- 
mittee and those on Library Training, Pro- 
gram and Resolutions, are created and 
have their duties defined in the By-Laws), 
and, perhaps, Book Buying and Decimal 
Classification. 

This complete delegation of power in 
special fields is, of course, entirely wise 
and proper, and these Committees are in- 
variably made up of persons possessing 
special qualifications, whom the A. L. A. 
is proud to designate as its plenipoten- 
tiaries. It is suggested, however, that the 
creation of such Committees, and the defi- 
nition of their jurisdiction, be made the 
subject of a special group of by-laws under 
the head of Standing Committees, direct- 
ing the source and manner of their ap- 
pointment, and specifying their functions 
and authority, and that, as new ones are 
created, new by-laws be added. 

Mr. J. I. Wyer, jr., in his letter to this 
Committee as Chairman of the Committee 
on State and Federal Relations, points out 
a dilemma which must frequently con- 
front the committee chairmen by reason 
of the want of definition of powers and 
jurisdiction that prevails generally among 
our committees. He says: 

"There is one matter which has not 
been perfectly clear to me. How far is a 
single committee entitled to put the Asso- 
ciation on record or commit it to a matter 
of policy in favoring or opposing legisla- 
tion? There are two opinions in this coun- 
try about the Smith-Towner bill and before 
our committee made active efforts to ad- 
vance it this winter I preferred to have 
the Executive Board reaffirm the Coun- 
cil's Asbury Park approval of two years 
ago. . . . The A. L. A. membership is not 
wholly uncritical and how is the Commit- 
tee on Federal and State Relations to 
know whether the action which may be 
its best judgment will be backed up by the 
Association?" 

This just criticism exactly points the 
moral that we have endeavored to impress 



in our preceding remarks namely: That 
it is imperative that our Committees 
should not only know the source of their 
authority and be able to trace their title 
back to the Association itself as the only 
real fountain of authority, but also the 
extent thereof; that they are entitled to a 
specific written statement, such as a clause 
in the by-laws or a positive enactment by 
the Executive Board, framed at the time 
of their creation, to serve as a charter or 
warrant for their activities. It is just be- 
cause this has never been systematically 
done that the present inquiry (or inquest) 
was instituted, to discover, if possible, 
through such evidence as could be ad- 
duced, direct, indirect, collateral and 
sometimes psychoanalytic, what was in the 
minds of the numerous and divers commit- 
tee creators when the various committees 
were called into being. 

The results of our labors, herewith sub- 
mitted, are no more satisfactory to us 
than they can be to the Council and, in 
any event, cannot be final. They should 
be referred for further discussion and re- 
vision, either to the Council, the Execu- 
tive Board, the Committee on Constitu- 
tional Revision, or, possibly, to the com- 
mittee here reporting, with a grant of fur- 
ther time. 

The sources of our information were, 
first, replies to inquiries addressed to the 
chairmen of most of the committees of 
the A. L. A. and Council as found in the 
Handbook for 1920, occasionally supple- 
mented by similar statements from chair- 
men of previous years. Such replies, ex- 
haustive, painstaking, and instructive, 
were received from all the committees to 
whom our letter was sent. Some commit- 
tees, such as Program, Travel, Finance, 
whose names clearly connote their pur- 
pose, were not asked for statements. Sec- 
ondly, the Proceedings and Bulletins were 
searched (but not prior to 1915) for com- 
mittee reports or discussions. In this 
connection we note as an apparent de- 
fect in our committee system the custom 
of submitting reports in writing, to be 
printed in advance of the annual or mid- 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



29 



winter meetings, and dispensing with oral 
presentation except by special arrange- 
ment or for specially important subjects. 
A recommendation seems warranted that 
all committee reports save those dealing 
with mere business routine travel, pro- 
gram, etc., be accorded a fixed place on 
the program either of the Association or 
the Council. Among the duties allotted 
to the latter body the receipt and consid- 
eration of all important committee re- 
ports might well be included as a profit- 
able and appropriate function. 

In addition to the above mentioned 
sources of information we have also had 
the benefit of consultation with the Sec- 
retary and of several valuable letters from 
the President, which cast ample light upon 
the intent of the Council and President in 
the creation of this committee as well as 
upon the involved and perplexing condi- 
tion of our committee organization. We 
can hardly hope that this report will prove 
to be a material contribution either to- 
ward fulfilling that intent or improving 
that condition. 

One task that the Secretary particularly 
urged this Committee to undertake re- 
mains to a large extent unaccomplished. 
This is to "prepare a very brief statement 
showing what is the work of each commit- 
tee, which could be printed in the Hand- 
book so that new committee members 
might know what their functions are." 
The following annotations will be found 
far from brief, and will need much con- 
densation and revision before they can 
serve this purpose. To do this properly 
will require more time than was at our 
disposal, and the collaboration of persons 
commanding a more intimate and more ex- 
tensive acquaintance with the work of 
the committees than the undersigned have 
been able to acquire through the sources 
of information available to them. The Sec- 
retary himself should be constantly con- 
sulted in this final compilation. 

With this lengthy preamble, and con- 
scious of a title to authority more or less 
beclouded, your committee proceeds to sub- 
mit the following budget of notes con- 



cerning the separate committees of the 
A. L. A. and Council. It will be seen that 
we have made few recommendations as to 
the discontinuance or merger of commit- 
tees, and have found a surprisingly small 
amount of overlapping or duplication of 
authority. Considerable misunderstanding, 
however, exists among the committees as 
to the extent and limitations of their func- 
tions and authority. It is our hope that 
the present report may prove to be a con- 
tribution toward the abatement of these 
perplexities. Committee activity, in a 
large organization holding but one general 
meeting each year, is both necessary and 
desirable. To promote and usefully to 
employ it, without friction and with ample 
provisions for its fullest development, 
should constitute one of the chief pre- 
occupations of the Central authority, and 
should not be divided. 

Unfortunately there has not been time 
to submit these notes to the chairmen of 
the several committees before inclusion in 
this report. They are based in every 
instance upon the letters received in 
answer to our questionnaire, but the deduc- 
tions and conclusions are the sole responsi- 
bility of the committee here reporting. It 
should -also be observed that we have 
adhered to the classification into Standing 
and Special Committees formerly followed 
in the official list, but discontinued in the 
Handbook for 1920. 

Standing Committees 

Bookbinding. Created by the Executive 
Board, 1905. 

A commission of experts to act in an 
advisory capacity to the membership at 
large on all matters pertaining to binding, 
rebinding, magazine and pamphlet binding 
and book papers. 

Maintains collections of specimens and 
materials of binding and repair processes 
which are circulated as exhibits. 

Has formulated specifications for library 
bindings, e. g., of the llth ed. of the 
Encyclopedia Britannica, reference books, 
and for re-enforcements; also for book 
cloths, all of which have found general 



30 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



acceptance among binders, publishers and 
manufacturers. 

Compiled several booklets published by 
the A. L. A. Publishing Board. 

Makes an annual report of progress, and 
on the state of the industry as related to 
libraries. 

Book Buying. Created 1903, by the Ev- 
ecutive Board. 

To keep in touch with and report to the 
membership at large upon prices and dis- 
counts to libraries of American and foreign 
publications. Issues bulletins of news and 
advice on matters arising in its field. Ap- 
parently empowered to represent the A. 
L. A. in negotiations with the book trade 
and before legislative bodies in contro- 
versies relating to price maintenance, 
terms, and kindred questions. As at pres- 
ent constituted and conducted, this is 
rather a Committee on Book Prices than 
on Book Buying. In any event, this is an 
important standing committee which should 
be vested with ample and well defined 
powers. 

Cataloging. Created, 1917, as a Special 
Committee on Cataloging Rules primarily 
to act with the committee of the British 
Library Association to formulate additional 
rules for cataloging and such changes in 
the existing code as might seem desirable 
from the standpoint of maintaining or 
securing uniform practice in British and 
American libraries. Changed to its pres- 
ent form of name in 1920, and is now: 

A commission of experts to advise the 
membership at large on the practice of 
cataloging, and to act as a tribunal with 
final jurisdiction in interpreting and revis- 
ing old rules and formulating new ones. 
Has recently issued rules for cataloging 
music, and is now at work, through sub- 
committees, on rules for incunabula and 
prints. An important standing committee 
with plenary powers. Makes an annual 
report of progress but is apparently vested 
with independent authority, not subject to 
confirmation. Reference of its annual 
report to the Catalog Section, or to the 
Council, for discussion and, possibly, for 
approval or acceptance might prove useful. 



Education. Successor to the Committee 
on Co-operation with Educational Associ- 
ations. 

To promote and direct relations between 
the two tax-supported educational agencies, 
the public library and the public school, 
and advance the cause of library service 
in educational institutions, i. e., grade 
schools, high schools, night and continu- 
ation schools, normal schools, colleges and 
universities, primarily but not exclusively 
those under public control and supported 
by taxation. 

To this end the committee is arranging 
for the creation of state committees on 
education by the state library associations, 
and announces the following program: 

To give publicity and encouragement to 
the library program of the National Edu- 
cation Association. 

To give publicity and encouragement to 
the school library program of the school 
and college library sections of the A. L. A. 

To give publicity and encouragement to 
the library program of each State Com- 
mittee on Education. 

To formulate and to give publicity to 
certain fundamental principles that must 
underlie a normal, forward moving develop- 
ment of school libraries. This does not 
mean the laying down of certain definite 
methods of procedure. Each state will 
have its own convictions as to practice. 

(a) The establishment of library courses 
for the training of school librarians ade- 
quate to care for the needs of the state. 

(b) The establishment of equal stand- 
ards of preparation and compensation for 
librarians and teachers in the same com- 
munity or institution. 

(c) The establishment of instruction in 
the use of books and libraries in every 
school according to the age and needs of 
the students from the elementary school 
through the university. 

Federal and State Relations. To con- 
sider all matters involving legislative or 
governmental action affecting libraries, 
and to represent the Association in hear- 
ings or negotiations before legislative 
or governmental authorities. As a com- 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



31 



mittee of a national organization its 
activities are almost wholly applied to 
federal relations, there being no instance 
on record of its intervention in state 
affairs. Since questions of legal or execu- 
tive action affecting interests of other 
committees frequently arise, e. g. federal 
price regulations, government printing, 
etc., the powers and functions of the pres- 
ent committee should be clearly stated. 
Interlocking memberships, as suggested 
elsewhere, might be a wise expedient. 

International Relations. To consider 
questions involving international relations 
of the Association as such, and to repre- 
sent it, or advise the Executive Board as 
to representation or participation, in affairs 
of international import, such as co-opera- 
tion with foreign governments, associa- 
tions or institutions. Cognizance, initiation 
or supervision of separate library enter- 
prises abroad are not included among its 
duties. Occasions for committee activity 
are therefore infrequent and are limited 
to international affairs affecting or enlist- 
ing the corporate interests of the Associa- 
tion only as a whole. 

Library Administration. Created in By- 
laws, Section 7, viz.: 

"The Executive board shall appoint an- 
nually a committee of three on library 
administration to consider and report im- 
provements in any department of library 
economy, and make recommendations look- 
ing to harmony, uniformity and co-opera- 
tion, with a view of economical adminis- 
tration." 

The existence and activities of other 
committees on special branches of library 
administration, e. g. cataloging, book buy- 
ing, bookbinding and library training, and 
tho.se on library work with special classes, 
have somewhat blurred the functional out- 
lines of this committee, so that it now 
describes its scope as comprehending "ad- 
ministrative problems not specifically 
assigned to other committees." 'Latterly 
it has concerned itself with report forms 
and other purely executive phases of 
library administration. Its excellent report 
on labor-saving devices and on economies 



as developed in our war experiences, how- 
ever, show that there is still a place for a 
committee to follow the general trend of 
administrative methods. Possibly a change 
in name, from Administration to Methods, 
would be useful. 

Library Training. Section 6 of the By- 
laws creates this Committee in the follow- 
ing words: 

"The Executive board shall appoint a 
committee of eight on library training, 
which shall from time to time investigate 
the whole subject of library schools and 
courses of study, and report the results 
of the investigations, with its recommenda- 
tions. The membership of this committee 
shall be as follows: one member of a 
state library commission, one librarian of a 
free public library of at least 50,000 vol- 
umes, one librarian of a college or refer- 
ence library, one library trustee, four 
library school graduates, including one 
from the faculty of a library school; one 
school graduate and one other member to 
retire each year." 

This committee, and the Committee on 
Library Administration, are the only two 
standing committees provided for in the 
By-laws (except those on nominations, 
resolutions and finance, the latter being 
created by Sec. 12 of the constitution). 
Its duties are clearly set out and the 
clause stipulating qualifications for mem- 
bership is interesting though it might 
prove embarrassing as a precedent. On 
the other hand, it is not clear why mem- 
bership on this committee alone should be 
surrounded by such specifications. 

One of our most important committees, 
with definite powers usefully employed. 

Public Documents. The present chair- 
man of this committee defines its func- 
tions as being: 

"To take cognizance of all matters 
relating to public documents issued in the 
United States, whether federal, state or 
municipal." The recommendation is made 
that Canada be included, and the observa- 
tion is added that the committee does not 
seem at any time to have "concerned itself 
with foreign documents."

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



Since the primary duty of the committee 
seems to be to promote knowledge and 
use of public documents in American 
libraries, and to facilitate their acquisition, 
there does not seem to be any good reason 
why foreign documents should not be 
included. 

Secondarily, the committee intervenes as 
the representative of the Association in 
matters pertaining to, or affecting, the 
issue and distribution of federal docu- 
ments, as in the case of the printing bill 
now 'before Congress. This representative 
function seems clearly within the neces- 
sary powers of the committee, but should 
not be left to implication. There are possi- 
bilities here of conflict or overlapping with 
the Committee on Federal and State Rela- 
tions. Interlocking memberships in these 
two committees at present render this pos> 
sibility remote. This device might be use- 
fully kept in mind to forestall such con- 
flicts in other directions. 

Publicity. Created as a special commit- 
tee by the Executive Board, 1917, changed 
to a standing committee in connection with 
the Enlarged Program. By an oversight, 
discovered too late for correction, the pres- 
ent chairman was not asked for a state- 
ment. 

Publicity for the Association is so obvi- 
ously a branch of the administrative func- 
tions of the Secretary's office that it is 
difficult to see how it can be successfully 
covered by a committee of volunteers how- 
ever expert in practice or generous in 
their expenditure of time and energy. As 
a matter of fact neither Association 
nor library publicity is a proper subject 
for the activities of a committee which can 
only plan, advise and urge, without the 
means or authority to make its efforts 
effective. Conference publicity, extending 
over a period of a few weeks each year 
might conceivably be thus accomplished, 
indeed, has been accomplished with re- 
markable success in the past. Probably 
the present Publicity Committee would 
agree with these conclusions. 

We can only add that it is most unfortu- 
nate that the headquarters office must con- 



tinue without the resources and machinery 
to undertake so important an activity upon 
an adequate scale. In these circumstances 
the Association is fortunate in being able 
to command the devotion and enterprise 
displayed by this committee, past and 
present. 

Work with the Blind. Reports on con- 
ditions and accomplishments of libraries 
for the blind and encourages the establish- 
ment of such libraries. At present handles 
matters in connection with service to the 
war blind and the printing of embossed 
books for this service. 

Special Committees 

Affiliation with the Library Workers' 
Association. A Council Committee, creat- 
ed 1920, whose duties are sufficiently ex- 
plained by its name. Expects to render a 
final report at the current Conference, and 
to be discharged. 

Civil Service Relations. "Appointed by 
the Council," 1917. Four of its six mem- 
bers are present members of the Council. 
Created under authority bf a Council 
resolution: 

"That the President be authorized and 
requested to appoint a Committee on Civil 
Service Relations to confer with the 
National Assembly of Civil Service Com- 
missions and the Council of the National 
Civil Service Reform League and to report, 
if practicable, at the mid-winter meeting of 
the Council or at the ensuing conference. 

The Committee has made but one report 
(Asbury Park, 1919) since its creation. It 
is not clear whether this report was made 
to the Association or to the Council but it 
was probably made to the former. 

It is recommended that the statement 
of the functions of this Committee be 
enlarged to include the assumption of 
general cognizance of civil service rela- 
tions and legislation as they affect 
libraries, analogous to the duties of the 
Committee on Federal and State Relations, 
and that it be taken over by the Executive 
Board as a Standing Committee of the 
A. L. A. 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



33 



Decimal Classification Advisory Commit- 
tee. Appointed by the Executive Board, 
1916. 

To confer with the editors of the Dewey 
Decimal Classification, offer advice as to 
the inclusion and location of new subjects 
and schedules, and, in general, to repre- 
seat American library interests in the 
development and application of the Deci- 
mal and other standard book classifica- 
tions. 

Similar in scope and authority to the 
Committee on Cataloging, and, like the 
latter, should be changed to a Standing 
Committee of the Association. 

Committee of Five on Library Service. 
Appointed by the Executive Board, 1919, 
to prepare a survey of the present work of 
American libraries. Under the enlarged 
program the committee expected to receive 
a large appropriation enabling it to organ- 
ize the survey on a professional scale. 
Failing this, it expects to proceed with 
the survey by volunteer work, hoping to 
enlist the aid of a large number of workers. 
A very important special committee, con- 
fronted by a stupendous task which, in less 
capable hands, might be defeated by its 
own magnitude. 

Foreign Publications. Originated at the 
Mid-winter Meeting of the Middle Western 
University Librarians, 1919-20, for the pur- 
pose of securing better service for libraries 
in the completion of files of periodicals is- 
sued in Germany and Austria during the 
war period. On recommendation of the 
section the committee was appointed by 
the Executive Board in December, 1920, 
and is listed among the committees of the 
A. L. A. 

This committee presents the only clear 
case of duplication we have encountered, 
since the problems with which it deals are 
fully comprehended within the scope of the 
Book Buying Committee. It should be 
returned to its rightful parents, the Uni- 
versity Librarians. 

Institutional Libraries. Created by the 
Executive Board, 1915; formerly called 
Committee on Library Work in Hospitals 
and Charitable and Correctional Institu- 



tions. To promote the cause of organized 
library service in institutions and to ren- 
der all possible aid in bringing this about. 

This is one of a group of committees on 
library work with special classes which 
should be represented at headquarters by 
a paid extension officer to whom they 
might act as advisors. Meanwhile they 
are undertaking to carry on extension 
work in their respective fields through 
volunteer and leisure time efforts of their 
self-sacrificing members, a doubtful ex- 
pedient, justified only by the necessities 
of the Association. Others of this type are 
the committees on work with the foreign 
born and with the blind. They are really 
executive committees and make annual re- 
ports of work done similar to the report of 
an executive officer. They should at least 
be given the status of standing committees. 

International Bibliography of Humanistic 
Literature. Created by the Association 
1919. To assist in the preparation, 
especially by advice as to methods, of an 
international bibliography of humanistic 
subjects, similar in extent and scope to the 
International Catalog of Scientific Litera- 
ture. This project originated with the 
American Association of University Pro- 
fessors, and was presented to the A. L. A. 
by Prof. P. J. Teggart as chairman of a 
special committee of that body. Progress 
depends upon financial support. 

Investigation of Manner in which Munici- 
palities are Meeting Obligations to Donors. 
Created, 1916, by the Executive Board. 
'A. committee whose task, fully described 
in its title, involves the application of 
much industry and considerable diplomacy. 
The committee, which does not seem to 
have reported before, expects to report at 
this conference recommending that the 
work be done by headquarters. 

Joint Committee of Seven with Special 
Libraries Association. This committee 
was created by action of the Executive 
Board following the discharge of a preced- 
ing committee. The duties of this commit- 
tee are to confer as to appropriate activi- 
ties which might be jointly undertaken by 
the American Library Association and the 



34 



Special Libraries Association. Three mem- 
bers are apointed by the President of each 
Association and the seventh by these six. 

Legislation. Created by the Council, 
1917. To keep itself and the Association 
informed on current American library 
legislation, federal and state, and to pre- 
pare a digest of all library laws, of more 
than local import, enacted during the year. 
Has drafted a model commission law and 
is now engaged upon a model county 
library law. 

It seems proper to recommend that, 
unless or until the Secretary's office can 
cover the field, this committee should con- 
tinue as a standing committee of the 
A. L. A. An alternative would be to assign 
its duties to the Committee on Federal and 
State Relations or the Committee on 
Library Administration. 

Library Co-operation with other Coun- 
tries. Created by the Executive Board, 
19'21. To respond to cals from abroad, i. e., 
from municipalities and other official 
bodies, for assistance and advice in the 
application of American library methods. 

If this important activity must be cov- 
ered by a committee instead of being con- 
trolled from headquarters, the authority of 
the committee should be explicit and 
ample. Apparently it has power to desig- 
nate or invite members of the A. 'L. A. to 
contribute their services or to execute 
special commissions. This should either 
be clearly specified or reserved to the 
Executive Board or its officers. 

National Certification and Training. Ap- 
pointed by the Executive Board7~1920, as 
the result of recommendations included in 
the report of the Special Committee on Cer- 
tification, Standardization and Library 
Training, printed in the Proceedings, 1920, 
p. 311 et seq. Its object is to promote the 
project of a National Board of Certification. 

The report mentioned urges the creation 
of a Board of nine members, with a compe- 
tent executive staff and ample funds, to 
investigate and evaluate all agencies for 
library training, correlate their methods, 
and provide for an authoritative system of 



credentials or certification for librarians in 
various grades. 

This report was made with a view to 
inclusion in the Enlarged Program and 
looked forward to the provision of funds 
for the employment of experts and the 
maintenance of a central office. 

Section 4 of the "specific recommenda- 
tions" in the report reads: 

"That, pending constitutional provisions 
for such a board, the Executive Board of 
the American Library Association be in- 
structed to appoint a committee of nine 
members to be constituted substantially 
as outlined in the foregoing report." 

No conflict of function or jurisdiction 
exists between this and other Committees. 
The -action regarding, and the considera- 
tion of, certification by the several states 
emphasizes the importance of up-to-date 
reports on the subject. 

Reciprocal Relations with Other Nation- 
al Organizations. To advance the possibil- 
ity and arrange for the establishment of 
co-operation 'between public libraries and 
various activities and interests represented 
in national organizations; also to arrange 
for A. L. A. representation at meetings of 
such organizations where feasible. The 
committee notifies libraries of conventions 
to be held in their localities and urges 
them to offer their resources to the visit- 
ors as well as to the officials of the con- 
vention and local committee. 

This seems to be a secretarial function 
of a more or less clerical nature rather 
than a piece of work to occupy the atten- 
tion of a special group of members acting 
as a committee. Should be transferred to 
the Secretary's office as soon as provision 
can be made for it. Meanwhile the Asso- 
ciation is fortunate in having it covered by 
the volunteer activities of this special 
ccmmittee. 

Recruiting for Library Service. A spe- 
cial committee born of the necessities of 
the times and to be discharged when the 
emergency shall have passed. Occupies a 
field entirely its own, namely: 

To present the claims of librarianship as 
a vocation for young people. The com- 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



35 



mittee is preparing a vocational exhibit, 
on view at this Conference. 

Revision of Adams' Manual of Historical 
Literature. To co-operate with a similar 
committee of the American Historical As- 
sociation in preparing a revised edition of 
the Manual of Historical Literature, by 
Charles Kendall Adams, first published in 
1882. The bibliographical and editorial 
work is chiefly in the hands of the com- 
mittee of the American Historical Associa- 
tion, the function of the A. L. A. commit- 
tee being more of an advisory nature as to 
form, etc. The chairman of the latter com- 
mittee is a member of the committee of 
expected in 1922. 

Service to Traveling Salesmen. To con- 
fer with the National Council of the Trav- 
the Historical Association. Publication is 
eling Men's Association to devise a method 
of enabling its members to borrow books 
of any public library and return them to 
any other public library. 

This would seem to be largely a local 
problem. If it has national or Associa- 
tion aspects, it should be referred to the 
Standing Committee on Library Adminis- 
tration. 

Sponsorship for Knowledge. A special 
committee of the Council, created January, 
1919, to develop a plan for Sponsorships 
for Knowledge on a national scale. At 
present the committee is devoting its at- 
tention to Boston only, expecting to sub- 
mit the arrangements to be there per- 
fected as a model or illustration for an 
undertaking on national lines. 

Standardization of Libraries. Appointed 
by the Council, Mid-winter Meeting, 
1916-17. To take up the question of stand- 
ardization of libraries and librarians, the 
certifications of librarians, the definition of 
library personnel terminology. 

The interesting proviso is added that 
this committee, appointed by the Presi- 
dent upon instruction of the Council, 
"shall report to the whole Association " 

Transfer of Library War Service. 
Created by the Executive Board, 1920. A 
special committee with a definite task 



which it expects to complete in the near 
future. 

Union List. A committee of the Council, 
serves chiefly as a Committee for informa- 
tion to endeavor to secure action by other 
bodies rather than to do any work itself. 

One of its functions is to arrange for 
the compilation of a national joint list of 
serials available in the public, institutional 
and society libraries of the entire country. 

Ventilation and Lighting. A special 
committee of the Council for investigating 
progress and development in the field of 
lighting and ventilation for libraries. Ex- 
pects to complete its work at the present 
session. 

Work with the Foreign Born. Created 
by the Executive Bard, 1917. To extend 
the knowledge and use of libraries among 
the foreign born, especially the unassimi- 
lated foreign born. To assemble a body 
of information and practice relating to 
work in this field. Should be a standing 
committee. 

In addition to these there are the Com- 
mittees on Constitution and By-laws; Fi- 
nance; Membership, and Program, which 
did not seem to call for description or dis- 
cussion. 

All of which is respectfully submitted,

DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION ADVISORY 

Decimal Classification Advisory Commit- 
tee respectfully reports that their work 
has been seriously hindered by the death 
of the Secretary, and the absorption of 
their Chairman in other duties, but they 
are considering a most important exten- 
sion of the classification in 651 and 658.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



EDUCATION. 
Report of Progress June, 1921. 

The Committee held one meeting in Chi- 
cago at midyear. Three members besides 
the chairman were present but others in- 
terested joined in the discussions. The 
following general statement of the duties 
and functions of the committee, based 
upon this conference was prepared in 
April for the A. L. A. Committee on Com- 
mittees: 

The Committee on Education seems to 
have had its inception in a desire to co- 
operate with the N. E. A. for the purpose 
of bringing the public library systems and 
the public systems of the country into 
satisfactory working relations. The public 
schools systems we are defining as consist- 
ing of the state universities, normal 
schools, high schools, elementary schools, 
night schools and continuation schools, 
namely those schools, supported by taxa- 
tion, for the training of the school age 
population and adults. 

Our committee believes that it would be 
well to limit our efforts to the library work 
of and with organized public schools in 
this largest sense of the term. As pub- 
lic schools are controlled and directed by 
separate state and local communities, the 
A. L. A. Committee on Education believes 
that its chief duty is to act as a clearing 
house tor the ideas evolved in the several 
states. Therefore, it has suggested to each 
state association the appointment of a 
State Committee on Education. The 
duties of this committee would be to 
strengthen the library work in and with 
schools. Twenty-five states have already 
appointed such committees. 

The objective is co-operation between 
the two educational systems supported by 
the public as training centers for the 
school age population. 
Duties. 

(1) To give publicity and encourage- 
ment to the library program of the Na- 
tional Education Association. 

(2) To give publicity and encourage- 
ment to the school library program of the 
school and college library sections of the 
A. L. A. 



(3) To give publicity and encourage- 
ment to the library program of each State 
Committee on Education. 

(4) To formulate and to give public- 
ity to certain fundamental principles that 
must under-lie a forward moving, normal 
development of school libraries. This does 
not mean the laying down of certain defi- 
nite methods of procedure. Each state 
will have its own convictions as to prac- 
tice. 

(a) The establishment of library 
courses for the training of school libra- 
rians adequate to care for the needs of the 
state. 

(b) The establishment of equal stand- 
ards of preparation and compensation for 
librarians and teachers in the same com- 
munity or institution. 

(c) The establishment of instruction 
in the use of books and libraries in every 
school according to the age and needs of 
the students from the elementary school 
through the university. 

While special emphasis should be laid 
upon .work in publicly supported institu- 
tions, private institutions, especially those 
training teachers, should be included. 

A letter was sent to the president of each 
state library association suggesting the ap- 
pointment of a state committee on educa- 
tion. Twenty-six committees have been or- 
ganized. 

Five questionnaires were prepared, em- 
phasizing four points: 

State and City Supervision of School li- 
braries. 

The status and salary of school libra- 
rians. 

The state's facilities for training school 
librarians. 

Instruction of students in the use of 
books and libraries. 

These questionnaires have been distrib- 
uted and the state chairmen are co-operat- 
ing with the A. L. A. Committee in every 
way. 

We hope that this plan may help to 
relate the work of the state associations 
to the national association and that strong 
state programs may also result. 

The final report based on returns from 
the questionnaires will be made later. 

Very truly yours, 
HARRIET A. WOOD, Chairman.

FEDERAL AND STATE RELATIONS 

Your present Committee on Federal and 
State Relations was notified of its appoint- 
ment and personnel on December 15, 1920, 
and its report, which was required on May 
20, 1921, for publication in advance of the 
annual meeting, is therefore concerned 
with but five months' work. 

A Committee on Federal and State Rela- 
tions was first appointed at the annual 
meeting at Asheville, May 24-29, 1907, with 
the following statement of purpose: "The 
above committee will consider questions of 
library post, copyright, and all matters in- 
volving legislation or action affecting li- 
braries not within the province of other 
committees of the Association, or which 
may be referred to it by other committees." 

To this may be added the following 
statement made to the Executive Board in 
1914, designed to outline the chief purpose 
of several of the Association's committees: 
"To provide for the proper conduct of ne- 
gotiations and the maintenance of official 
relations between the Association and other 
organizations or administrative bodies. 
Examples: The committees on (1) In- 
ternational Relations; (2) Federal and 
State Relations; (3) Co-operation with 
the National Education Association; (4) 
Resolutions. 

These two brief, rather vague expres- 
sions form the sole official statement of 
anything suggesting the constitutional or 
even the traditional functions ascribed to 
this committee in the past. It will be 
noted that they provide for "considera- 
tion, " for "conduct of negotiations" and 
''maintenance of official relations" but no- 
where for outright decisions and action. 
In practice, however, as appears from its 
annual reports to the Association, the Com- 
mittee has in writing and orally in hear- 
ings and interviews advocated or opposed 
legislation and taken a decided stand upon 
matters of federal ruling or practice. 
This raises the question "How far is a sin- 
gle committee authorized to put the Asso- 



ciation on record or commit it to a policy 
or line of action? The constitution lodges 
with the Council the determination of poli- 
cies. The active advocacy of the Towner 
bill to establish a department of educa- 
tion or of one or more of the several meas- 
ures seeking to standardize and classify 
the federal civil service would seem 
clearly to be a matter of policy yet such 
action on these and a variety of similar 
matters appears to be expected from this 
committee and to have been taken by it in 
past years. There are certain matters 
which in the past few months have seemed 
to your committee so obviously wise and 
appropriate for active favoring effort as 
to raise no misgiving in the minds of its 
members. Yet we are conscious that the 
Council might not always take the same 
view of them and the membership at 
large, certainly a responsive and not un- 
critical one, might easily and quite prop- 
erly object to or repudiate such action by 
a committee. 

Your present committee, and especially 
its chairman, feels that cither 

1. The Council should cede a measure 
of its authority or policy-determining re- 
sponsibility to this committee (and this 

- may not be at all wise or even legal) if 
it is expected to act promptly for the As- 
sociation in matters of pending or needed 
legislation; 

or 

2. Without such warrant the Commit- 
tee should confine its work to accumulat- 
ing information regarding matters within 
its pretty well defined field and to present- 
ing such facts with suitable comment or 
recommendation to the Council or Associa- 
tion and act thereafter only on specific in- 
structions. 

This aspect, and it is a fundamental one, 
of the Committee's activities is earnestly 
commended to the Association for consid- 
eration. Such consideration will not over- 
look the fact that the need and the best 
time for effective action with congressional 
committees, state legislatures and public 
officers can seldom be determined accur- 
ately in advance and that sometimes need 



38 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



will arise suddenly for immediate action 
in a matter which can scarcely have been 
foreseen or anticipated by the Council. 

The Committee's membership represents 
seven states and the District of Columbia, 
purposely a wide geographical distribution 
a condition which has made meetings im- 
possible. An active correspondence has, 
however, been carried on by the chairman 
with all members and attention has been 
given to many matters referred to the 
Committee from officers, other comittees of 
the Association and from a few individual 
members. The most important of these 
matters are the following. 

The Towner education bill. As intro- 
duced in the present Congress, April 11, 
1921, this measure is H. R. 7. Its title is 
"A bill to create a department of educa- 
tion, to authorize appropriations for the 
conduct of said department, to authorize 
the appropriation of money to encourage 
the states in the promotion and support 
of education, and for other purposes." 

This bill was first brought to the no- 
tice of the American Library Association 
at the Asbury Park meeting, 1919, when 
the Council approved its then form, as fol- 
lows: 

The Council of the American Library 
Association endorses the Educational Bill 
(H. R. 7) introduced into the House of 
Representatives by the Hon. Horace M. 
Towner, and urges upon the Congress of 
the United States the early consideration 
and adoption of this measure. 

In December, 1920, the National Educa- 
tion Association requested A. L. A. support 
of this measure and the matter was re- 
ferred to the Committee on Federal and 
State Relations. Since the bill approved 
at Asbury Park, the Towner bill had been 
pretty much rewritten and greatly 
changed. It seemed to your committee 
that in so important a matter and in view 
of the fact that there was, and is, con- 
siderable opposition to the Towner bill, 
it should have an expression from the 
Council or Executive Board before at- 
tempting to commit the Association to un- 
qualified approval of the bill or even to 
those parts of it of library interest. Ac- 



cordingly, at the request of the Committee, 
the Executive Board took the following ac- 
tino at its Mid-winter Meeting in Chicago, 
December 29, 1920: 

Voted: That it is the sense of the Board 
that the Association intended to endorse 
the idea of a Department of Education, 
and that the Executive Board is quite will- 
ing to leave to the Committee its decision 
as to what action it shall take in regard 
to the specific features of the bill which is 
now before Congress. 

As there seemed little chance for pas- 
sage of the bill, in the last session of the 
66th Congress, the N. E. A. officials with 
whom your committee worked deemed it 
best to reserve A. L. A. effort until the 
present session. 

In its latest form (H. R. 7) the bill con- 
tains the following provision of interest 
to libraries. In section 9, among the pur- 
poses for which is to be spent the sum of 
$50,000,000 "to encourage the states to 
equalize educational opportunities" is the 
following: "for the extension and adapta- 
tion of public libraries for educational pur- 
poses." This is the only mention of libra- 
ries in the bill. 

In section 5 there are enumerated six 
subjects in the field of education for study 
and investigation by the Department of 
Education and report thereon. Your com- 
mittee has requested Judge Towner to add 
to this section as "(g)" public libraries, 
and Judge Towner has written that this 
amendment will be made. 

There are some who think that the bill 
should provide for a separate library divi- 
sion or bureau in the proposed Depart- 
ment of Education. This seems in every 
way desirable and your committee recom- 
mends that the A. L. A. go on record at 
its approaching annual meeting as favor- 
ing or urging (in the event of the pas- 
sage of the bill) the establishment of such 
a library division which could assume all 
library functions devolving upon the De- 
partment. 

Section 17 provides for a National Coun- 
cil on Education of about fifty members 
representing the different educational in-

terests. These Interests are not enumer- 
ated. While library interests might be so 
recognized by the secretary of education 
who makes the Council appointments, it 
would be well for the A. L. A. to take 
definite action looking toward library rep- 
resentation on this National Council. 
Judge Towner is to be at the meeting and 
it should be easy to discuss, and perhaps 
to reach an understanding on, this point. 

The members of the committee have re- 
quested numerous letters from influential 
librarians in the various parts of the coun- 
try. No effort has been made to secure 
a general support from all libraries, but 
rather to get letters from a few who may 
be thought to count strongly. 

Bureau of Education statistical report 
on libraries. Using as a basis the re- 
vised form for library statistics recently 
prepared by the Committee on Library Ad- 
ministration, your Committee is in corre- 
spondence with the U. S. Bureau of Edu- 
cation relating to a much needed new edi- 
tion of the statistical report on American 
libraries which for some time has been is- 
sued at intervals of from five to eight 
years. Dr. Claxton, then Commissioner of 
Education, recently reported his purpose 
to issue a new edition in 1922, revised to 
include figures for 1921. Your committee 
has suggested changes in grouping, in the 
size of libraries included, and in the cap- 
tions for which statistical information is 
to be given. 

"The director of library extension of the 
Bureau of Education agrees to the advis- 
ability of including full data for libraries 
of three thousand volumes or over (pres- 
ent minimum limit five thousand volumes). 
He also agrees that libraries of all types 
should be listed in one series. 

"It is not anticipated that Dr. Claxton's 
recent retirement will cause any material 
change or delay in the plan to issue a new 
library statistics bulletin." 

Federal salary classifications. There 
are three or four bills on this subject now 
before Congress. The Library Advisory 
Wage Committee of the District of Colum- 
bia is unable to decide between the Sterl- 



ing and Smoot bill, either of which would 
appear to be reasonably satisfactory to 
library interests. Your committee is in 
close touch with Dr. Bowerman, who is in 
charge of the matter in the District of 
Columbia, and its members hold them- 
selves in readiness to support these meas- 
ures by personal appearance, by letter or 
by formal statement for the Association 
whenever such action shall seem most ef- 
fective. 

Congressional Record. It appears from 
information reaching your committee that 
in order to receive the Congressional Rec- 
ord currently in unbound form, it is nec- 
essary to renew library requests to con- 
gressmen at the beginning of each session. 
The members of your committee have 
asked libraries in their state or regions 
to address their congressmen suggesting 
joint action providing for the distribution 
of the daily unbound edition of the Con- 
gressional Record to depository libraries 
without specific request renewed each year 
or session. 

There are probably many non-depository 
libraries that want to have the Record 
from day to day during the sessions. A 
request to include them in this distribu- 
tion might be successful. The objection 
has been urged against it, however, that it 
would be creating a depository list with- 
out legal warrant. And yet if many li- 
braries should advise your committee of 
their interest in the current Congressional 
Record it might be possible now, or at 
the passage of some other bill governing 
the printing laws, to get such a provision 
inserted. 

Post Office Department price ruling. 
Under ruling interpreting the postal act of 
October 3, 1917, the Post Office Depart- 
ment has for some years forbidden the 
mention of the price of a book in any book- 
list, bulletin or review printed and circu- 
lated as secondclass matter. This has been 
strongly objected to by publishers and 
booksellers interested in the matter com- 
mercially. It has also affected libraries, 
particularly those state libraries and li- 
brary commissions which print lists of 



40 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



books recommended for purchase. It has 
proved impossible under the Burleson ad- 
ministration to secure any modification of 
this ruling or even to get a satisfactory 
hearing on the subject. Your committee 
has taken up promptly with the new pos- 
tal administration such modification of 
this ruling as will permit prices in library 
publications. It has not seemed wise to 
attempt to speak for publishers, whose 
interests are commercial and in this re- 
spect differ from the library interests. 

"On May 25 the following order No. 
5857 was received from the Postmaster 
General. While it is designed particularly 
for publishers, it yet seems to make per- 
fectly clear the fact that printed library 
lists are hereafter exempt from the an- 
noying ruling to which objection has been 
made." 

What Is and What Is Not Advertising in 
Publications Entered as Second-Class 
Matter Whose Advertising Portion Is 
Subject to Zone Rates. 
OFFICE OF THE POSTMASTER GENERAL, 

'Washington, May 23, 1921. 
ORDER No. 5857. 

Hereafter, with respect to publications 
entered as second-class matter, the ques- 
tion as to whether, under the law of Oc- 
tober 3, 1917, requiring a higher rate of 
postage on the portion devoted to adver- 
tisements than on the portion devoted to 
matter other than advertisements, edi- 
torial and other reading matter is adver- 
tising will be decided by whether or not 
the publisher has been, or is to be, directly 
or indirectly compensated, either by money 
or other valuable consideration, for Its 
insertion. In all cases where the publisher 
has not been, and is not to be, compen- 
sated such matter will take the rate of 
postage for other than advertising. In all 
cases where the publisher has been or is 
to be compensated in any form whatever 
the advertising rate of postage will be 
charged. Articles, items and notices in the 
form of reading matter inserted in accord- 
ance with a custom or understanding, ex- 
plicit or tacit, that a "reader" is to be 
given the advertiser or his products in 
the publication in which the display ad- 
vertisement appears are advertising within 
the meaning of the law. 

Display advertising is obvious in its 
character and must pay the advertising 
mailing rate. 



Attention is specifically called to the law 
of 1912, which requires that editorial or 
other reading matter for which the pub- 
lisher is compensated, directly or indi- 
rectly, must be plainly marked with the 
word "Advertisement." 

The Postmaster General desires it to be 
thoroughly understood by all publishers 
that this law of 1912 is most earnestly 
called to their attention and will be most 
vigorously enforced by his department. 

This ruling puts it up squarely to each 
publisher to label all matter, other than 
display advertisements, for the publica- 
tion of which money or other valuable 
consideration is paid, accepted, or prom- 
ised, with the word "Advertisement" 
printed in full. 

Finally, in this connection attention is 
called to the fact that when a newspaper 
or periodical advertises its own services 
or issues, or any other business of the pub- 
lisher, in the form of either display ad- 
vertisements, or editorial or reading mat- 
ter, this is advertising within the mean- 
ing of the law and the publisher must ex- 
pect to pay the advertising mailing rate 
therefor. 

WILL H. HAYS, 
Postmaster General. 

26741 (Ed. 2,000) 

The Weekly Review for May 14 has the 
following editorial on this head: 

We venture to hope that Postmaster 
General Hays will give his attention to 
another feature of the postal regulations 
which is not only silly but inflicts a seri- 
ous injury on the reading public. The 
excellent custom of mentioning the prices 
of books in connection with reviews of 
them has been penalized by classifying any 
such review as an advertisement. The 
consequence is that thousands of readers 
who would be inclined to order a book in 
which they had become interested through 
reading an account of it are debarred 
from doing so by ignorance of its price. 
This obstruction to the diffusion of knowl- 
edge and the enjoyment of literature is 
so stupid, and so utterly useless from 
any possible point of view, that it ought 
to reluire but a moment's independent 
thought to decide that it shall be brought 
to an end. (The Weekly Review, vol. 4, 
p. 450, May 14, 1921) 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



41 



State legislation. There have been 
brought to the notice of your committee 
two or three items of state legislation. 
This has usually been done by individuals. 
The committee has uniformly replied that 
while it is always ready to advance de- 
sirable state legislation or to oppose sug- 
gested laws which seem to be adverse to 
library interests, it will not act in matters 
of state legislation except upon the ini- 
tiative of those having charge of state li- 
braries or state library commissions. Ex- 
ceptions to this policy will naturally be 
those states which are without any or ac- 
tive library commissions and where those 
in charge of the state library show no in- 
terest in library extension and develop- 
ment. 

An enlarged program Jor the commit- 
tee. Secretary Milam has made the fol- 
lowing suggestions. 

"I should like to see the Committee 
accept as its field the whole province of 
government service to Libraries. (I re- 
fer to the Federal government.) I should 
like to see it work up a plan of govern- 
ment aid to the library movement which 
could be submitted to the Association for 
its approval; then made the basis for our 
action in that field for a long time to 
come. 

"A great many librarians have said that 
many features of the Enlarged Program 
should be carried on, not by the American 
Library Association, but by the govern- 
ment. Perhaps the Committee could begin 
with the items in the Enlarged Program 
and could make recommendations as to 
which of these features should logically 
be carried on by the government, and 
how the Association can convince the gov- 
ernment that it should do the work." 

There are significant and hopeful pos 
sibilities in such a conception of the func 
tion of this committee. It has not seemed 
practicable this year to develop or prose- 
cute such an ambitious plan. The time has 
been too short and, a more potent reason 
still, the Executive Board and other com- 
mittees have been, and still are, actively 
at work arranging for government contin- 
uation of several forms of the Associa- 
tion's war work. Your committee has been 
kept fully informed as to their action and 
when, or if, arrangements are completed 



for the government to take over the hos- 
pital work and the merchant marine serv- 
ice, in addition to library work with the 
Army and Navy which it is now carrying, 
the Committee on Federal and State Re- 
lations may perhaps be the best agency 
through which the Association may keep 
a close watch on legislation, conference, in- 
terview, action and suggestions looking 
toward the fullest success of library work 
in government hands. 

The committee has done its bit of this 
work during the past six months by urg- 
ing with proper congressional committees 
the importance of and appropriations for 
the Army and Navy library work and by 
supporting A. L. A. proposals and plans 
for transfer of the hospital work to tea- 
eral authorities. 

Besides the particular matters treated 
above, attention has been given to a large 
correspondence and to other matters look- 
ing toward present or prospective federal 
action or legislation in behalf of libraries, 
such as, for example, a cheaper library 
book post, and a bill now before Congress, 
S. 61, "To provide for a library informa- 
tion service in the Bureau of Education." 
All of which is respectfully submitted.

FOREIGN PUBLICATIONS 

This Committee was appointed inform- 
ally at the Round Table of University li- 
braries held in Chicago on December 31, 
1919, and was formally appointed by the 
Executive Board on December 28, 1920. It 
now presents its first formal report of ac- 
tivities.

AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



Much to its regret, it is unable to pre- 
sent an easy and satisfactory solution of 
the problems of broken files of German 
periodicals during the war period. This 
lack of tangible result should, to a cer- 
tain extent, be charged to circumstances 
over which the Committee had no control, 
rather than to lack of interest or activity 
of the Committee. This statement is sub- 
mitted in explanation, and not as an ex- 
cuse. 

We found our first difficulty in the lack 
of information as to what was going on 
in Germany and the indefiniteness of the 
answers to our questions as to when the 
visible sources of supply of periodicals 
during the war period would be exhausted. 
Both of the importing houses in New 
York, which fill the greater part of the 
subscriptions for periodicals, assured us 
they were doing everything in their power 
to get full and satisfactory replies from 
their agents in Germany. These assur- 
ances, we believe, were given in good faith. 
Independent investigation convince us that 
on the part of German publishers there 
was, to put it mildly, a lack of interest in 
seeing that the files of American subscrib- 
ers were completed. Except in a few cases, 
we found no evidence of positive opposi- 
tion, though we did find evidence of de- 
cided indifference. 

We secured from the firms of G. E. 
Stechert & Company and Lemcke & Buech- 
ner two lists showing the German titles 
for which they had given up hopes of com- 
pleting the gaps on May 1, 1921. These 
titles are submitted as an appendix to this 
report. 

The firm of G. E. Stechert & Company 
stated, in submitting the list, that it had 
begun to reprint certain titles in Germany 
and that certain publishers in Germany 
had refused their consent to have re- 
prints made. At the date of this report 
we have not succeeded in learning which 
titles are being reprinted, nor can we 
learn how many publishers have refused 
consent, nor have we evidence that a sys- 
tematic or comprehensive attempt has 
been made to secure consent or refusal 



from all .publishers of periodicals with 
broken files. The same indefiniteness of 
information that has dogged our steps 
from the beginning, still clings close to 
the trail. If we have fuller information 
at the time of the meeting, it will give 
us pleasure to present it. 

As we understand the situation, the 
Stechert house has promised to secure 
by purchase in the open market, or by 
facsimile reprinting, all missing numbers 
for the war period. It is probable that 
this is a legal and valid obligation on 
the agent if he has been paid the sub- 
scription price for these periodicals. It is 
likewise probable that if this obligation 
should be insisted upon the agent would 
be forced into bankruptcy. 

In a printed circular letter, dated July 
11, 1919, G. E. Stechert & Company made 
the following statement: 

"It seems to me that the libraries 
should not act individually to secure the 
lost periodicals. Many of the periodicals 
will have to be reprinted and the cost of 
reprinting them will have to be borne 
by the subscribers; the more subscribers 
the cheaper will be the cost of the re- 
print for each. It would seem poor busi- 
ness for a few libraries to pay an in- 
creased price for duplicates of lost period- 
icals if a reprint has to be made anyhow. 

"I now wish to propose and do make 
the 'following proposition to my custom- 
ers: I desire to refund the loss, for which 
I do not consider myself legally liable, un- 
der the circumstances, and I propose to 
do so as follows: 

"To all Libraries who may subscribe 
through me, as I hope my old customers 
all will, I will allow a deduction of 20 per 
cent of the loss from the next bill for Ger- 
man periodicals which the Libraries may 
order for 1919, or beginning with the next 
volume or number as far as periodicals 
are concerned that are issued irregularly 
and not by the year. 

"The remaining 80 per cent to be re- 
funded within the following five years by 
deduction from subscription bills for Ger- 
man periodicals. The loss would have to 
be figured only for the number actually 
not delivered at a pro rata rate. 

"After delivery of the periodicals just 
received fom Rotterdam and after further 
delivery, perhaps within two or three 
months, of the numbers which have been 
saved from the fire in Leipzig, the libra- 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



43 



rians should send me a list of the period- 
icals, figuring the loss of the numbers at 
the proper rate according to the bills for 
subscriptions 1916 and 1917." 

So far as we can learn, no libraries 
have availed themselves of this offer. It 
is a question proper for discussion at the 
conference whether subscribing libraries 
had better insist upon this arrangement 
or suggest another. 

The Committee has not been content 
with dealing through the recognized 
agents, but has in addition sought other 
possible sources of assistance. Several 
conferences have been held with Prof. 
Franz Boas of Columbia University, who 
spoke on behalf of the Notgemeinschaft 
de deutsche Wissenschaft. This emer- 
gency organization of German University 
libraries, learned societies, etc., seeks 
primarily to secure foreign publications 
for the use of the co-operating institutions. 
The suggestion was made that if American 
libraries would care to exchange their du- 
plicates of American scientific periodicals 
and learned society publications, for du- 
plicates of similar publications in the Ger- 
man language in possession of the mem- 
bers of this Notgemeinschaft, material 
progress would T>e made in completing the 
files in both countries. To be sure, we 
do not know how much help the Not- 
gemeinschaft can give, but we can, at 
least, undertake to exchange with them 
on a piece for piece, or on a priced ex- 
change basis, the former if we have a 
satisfactory supply of American periodi- 
cals to offer them, the latter if we have no 
such supply. 

The- American libraries are now holding 
a certain number of duplicate German 
periodicals for the war period. We do not 
know the number so held, nor do we know 
how far they will go towards filling gaps, 
but if lists of these periodicals can be as- 
sembled, we shall be able to reduce some- 
what the list we shall later send to the 
Notgemeinschaft. 

In this connection Dr. Stephen P. 
Duggan, of the Institute of International 
Education, offered to supply the clerical 
help necessary to make a joint list of Ger- 



man periodicals for the war period needed 
to complete the files in American libraries 
and to compile a list of the duplicates held 
here. If this offer should be accepted, it 
will be necessary for the individual libra- 
ries to deliver to the Institute of Inter- 
national Education, 419 West 117th Street, 
New York City, their lists of wants ar- 
ranged in uniform shape. It will be neces- 
sary for the co-operating libraries to fur- 
nish in addition the editorial supervision 
necessary to combine these lists. The 
clerical expense of transcribing and com- 
bining these notes will, as stated above, 
be borne by the Institute if this offer is 
accepted. 

The Committee learns, after various con- 
ferences with men acquainted with the Ger- 
man book trade, that in the opinion of 
these men reprinting will not be necessary 
except in rare instances and that in some 
respects the best and surest method of fill- 
ing these gaps will be to turn the commis- 
sion over to some dealer in Germany, like 
Paul Gottschalk, of Berlin, or Otto Har- 
rassowitz, of Leipzig. Dealers such as 
these have a decided advantage compared 
with an agent for a New York house. In 
the first place they are German firms and 
are not the representative of a foreign 
house; in the second place they have a 
more constant and more comprehensive 
acquaintance with the sources of supply for 
second-hand periodicals than has the agent 
for a subscription house. If American 
libraries decide to take advantage of some 
such concern as Gottschalk of Harrasso- 
witz, they must recognize that the cost of 
replacement cannot be borne out of their 
payments already made to Stechert or 
Lemcke and Buechner. These new agents 
will, of course, have to be paid for their 
services and an equitable arrangement for 
sharing the cost would have to be worked 
out by the co-operating American libraries. 

The Committee feels emphatically that 
whatever action is taken should be in the 
form of union and co-operation. If all col- 
lege and reference libraries get together, 
the certainty of completing the files is in- 
creased. If we act individually, the in- 



44 



AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION 



evitable result will be that by bidding 
against one another, we raise the cost for 
all, and reduce for some, the possibility of 
completion -of files. 

As a basis for discussion at the Confer- 
ence we recommend: 

1. That we take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity for exchange offered through the 
Notgemeinschaft and the Institute of Inter- 
national Education. 

2. That we urge all libraries wishing to 
enter into this arrangement, to send to the 
Institute, not later than July 15th. 

(a) A list (in duplicate), of their de- 
siderata of German periodicals for 
the war period. 

(b) A list (in duplicate), of their dupli- 
cates of such periodicals for this 
period as they may have available 
for exchange with American libra- 
ries. 

These lists should be typewritten on 
sheets of uniform size, (Sy 2 inches wide by 
11 inches long) ; under the titles of the 
periodicals the desiderata or duplicates 
should be listed with a new line for each 
volume or year; the name of the library 
and "lacks" or "has in duplicate" should 
be written in connection with each title. A 
suggested form of entry is given below.

1919: Jg. 36, no. 24 to end of year. 

3. That if after a reasonable time it ap- 
pears the limits of successful exchange 
have been reached, the remainder of the 
list of desiderata be placed in the hands of 
some reliable German agent and that he be 
instructed to secure the necessary numbers. 

4. That libraries dealing with G. E. 
Stechert and Company accept the offer of 



repayment for numbers not furnished, as 
set forth earlier in the report.

INSTITUTIONAL LIBRARIES 

The A. L. A. Committee on libraries in 
Hospitals and charitable and correctional 
institutions wish to state, in lieu of any re- 
port, that it has given all its attention this 
year to publications on and for institu- 
tional libraries. We have especially consid- 
ered the preparation of a new edition of 
the pamphlet entitled "A thousand books 
for the hospital library" and have sent a 
recommendation to the A. L. A. Publishing 
Board asking them to consider the issuing 
of this new edition. 

The committee have agreed to co-operate 
under the editor-ship of Edith Kathleen 
Jones, as formerly, and to make the list 
larger and better adapted to the needs of 
general hospitals. They suggest that the 
name be changed to "Two thousand books 
for a hospital library." 

Respectfully submitfed, 

MIRIAM E. CAREY, 

Chairman. 

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS 
Upon receiving the (customary) request 
of the Secretary for an early (advance) 
submission of "the annual report" of our 
Committee, I canvassed the members of the 
Committee for suggestions. Only one has 
responded with any. 

This may seem strange in view of the 
numerous evidences of library activities 
abroad, the several projects there which 
have sought counsel or co-operation or 
even specific aid from the United States, 
and the one particular enterprise (the 
American Library in Paris) which is still 
an active concern and obligation of the 
Association itself. 

The obvious inference is that in the 
opinion of all save one of the Committee 



COMMITTEE REPORTS, 1920-21 



45 



none of the above are exactly of the nature 
to require consideration by our Committee. 
The appeals from Europe e.g., that of the 
University of Louvain for funds and books 
in replenishment of its library, that of the 
American Library in Rome, also for books, 
that of Czechoslovakia for expert counsel 
in the organization of popular lending 
libraries, that of a group in Belgium, for 
counsel and material for children's libra- 
ries, that of a group of British scholars 
for an organized provision of literature for 
the impoverished faculties of the Central 
Powers these appeals are being dealt with 
specifically by agencies outside of the Asso- 
ciation, by other Committees within the 
Association, by A. L. A. Headquarters (in 
Chicago or in Paris) in the course of ordi- 
nary administration, or by individual libra- 
ries or librarians. The American Library 
in Paris is under the direct responsibility 
of our Executive Board itself. 

It is of course conceivable that our Com- 
mittee should watch, take note of, and re- 
port to the Association each new activity 
or phase of development abroad which may 
have interest for us either as an Associa- 
tion or as individuals. This is, I think, 
the idea of our member who suggests refer- 
ence to "the League resolution on the Inter- 
national Organization of intellectual work, 
the Paris work, the Louvain work, the 
libraries of the American schools at Rome 
and at Paris, the Library of the Labor 
Bureau at Geneva" and to the other evi- 
dences that the present is "an age of inter- 
nationalism and of co-operation." 

My impression of the functions of our 
Committee, however, an impression evi- 
dently shared by its members in general 
is that they are limited to the consideration 
of projects in which the Assoeiation as 
such can take part, or with which it should 
initiate an active relation. Unless, there- 
fore, the resources of the Association as- 
sure a possibility of such a participation 
or a relation be proposed for it involving 
it, or its policy, as an Association the con- 
sideration of it by our Committee would 
be premature, recommendations futile, and 



the mere presentation of facts or opportu- 
nities confusing. 

The one outstanding enterprise which 
does concern us, through which our Euro- 
pean relations of information and of service 
can most effectively be rendered, and upon 
which, therefore, all of our available re- 
sources should be concentrated, is the 
Library and Headquarters in Paris. But 
this, as remarked above, is now a care of 
the Executive Board itself, and has passed 
beyond the need of consideration by our 
Committee. 

Very respectfully,

INVESTIGATION OF MANNER IN 

WHICH MUNICIPALITIES ARE 

MEETING OBLIGATIONS TO 

DONORS. JUNE, 1921 

It seemed best to your committee to first 
find out what the former committees had 
done before any fresh investigation was 
made in order to take up the work where 
it had stopped, if this was possible, and so 
avoid needless duplication and the possible 
annoyance of a second questionnaire with- 
in a comparatively short time upon the 
same subject. 

This preliminary investigation disclosed 
the fact that a committee had been ap- 
pointed in 1917 and a second in 1918. The 
previous correspondence was made avail- 
able to the present committee as there was 
no printed report by either. But a good 
deal of work had been accomplished. They 
had been in touch with the Carnegie Cor- 
poration of New York, and had the co- 
operation of Mr. Bertram who gave them 
the results of the questionnaires sent out 
by this Corporation reporting on the Car- 
negie libraries of the United States. This 
report showed that many towns having se- 
cured Carnegie Libraries were not fulfill- 
ing their pledges in supporting them. Six 
states having in all 55 Carnegie buildings 
(Ala.-2, Kan.-5, Ky.-4, I11.-15, Ohio-17, and 
Texas-11) had been "suspended" in 1914, 
i.e., no new Carnegie buildings would be

given to those states until those towns had 
redeemed themselves. 

And the following aggressive program 
was planned by the earlier committee: 

1. To send letters to libraries having sus- 

pended applications. 

2. To appeal through State Library Com- 

mission directly to delinquent libra- 
ries, (a) to library boards, (b) to 
Mayors. 

3. To send letters to state authorities as 

Commissions, Governors. 

4. To send letters to State Library Associa- 

tions in states where Library Commis- 
sions do not exist or are weak. 

5. To send advance warning to states near- 

ing the danger mark. 

6. To reach delinquents: (a) Directly, 

(b) Through Commission, (c) State 
Associations. 

In carrying out this program letters 
were written to all the delinquents so re- 
ported by this Corporation, to see if these 
towns could not be persuaded to redeem 
themselves; also letters were written to 
places wanting buildings asking them to 
write to delinquents urging them to make 
good so other towns in that state would be 
in line to secure help from the Carnegie 
fund. But unfortunately, the further car- 
rying out of this program had to be put 
aside for war work. 

So your present committee, building on 
what has been done by their predecessors, 
planned to work on the following lines: 
1. To secure a later report from the Car- 
negie Corporation to include 

(a) Delinquents in support of Car- 
negie buildings. 

(b) Delinquents in reporting only. 

(c) What the Carnegie Corporation 
had done to get delinquents to 
fulfill their obligations. 

A later report based on the 1920 ques- 
tionnaire was secured from the Carnegie 
Corporation, which showed much good had 
evidently been accomplished by the former 
agitation, for this report credits 16 states as 
having a perfect record Me., Vt, R.I., Conn., 
N. Y., Del., N. J., Md., W. Va., Miss., Iowa, 
S. Dak., Mont., Nev., Ariz., Cal.) ; 9 states 



with from l%-5% below (Mass., Ind., Ga., 
Mich., Wis., Minn., Kan., Ore., Wash.) ; 8 states 
with from 6%-10% below (Penn., Ala., 111., 
Mo., Neb., Wyo., Col., Utah) ; 7 states with 
from 11%-15% below (N. Hamp., Ohio, Ky., 
Tenn., La., Okla., Idaho) ; 5 states with 
from 16%-25% below (Va., N. Car., S. Car., 
Fla., N. Dak.) ; and 3 states with 25% 
below (Ark., Texas, N. Mex.). Only one of 
the states which in 1914 had been "sus- 
pended" was in the "black list" of 1920, and 
one had so far redeemed itself as to be in 
the second group from the top. And much 
of the trouble seems to come from "boom 
towns" slipping back with too great a 
burden left on their hands, or other deteri- 
oration in population or property values; 
often an indifference to the real meaning of 
the questionnaire, or the fact that accounts 
were not kept in a form to make the 
answering of questionnaire an easy matter, 
was responsible. 

The Carnegie Corporation stated that all 
it could logically do to change this senti- 
ment was to send to the various state libra- 
ry departments or library associations, a 
tabulated list of the libraries showing the 
records each state has made, leaving it to 
these bodies to take the matter up with the 
delinquent libraries. 

The shortness of time between the ap- 
pointment of the committee and the date 
for making a report has made it impossible 
to carry out any further investigation be- 
yond summarizing the figures received 
from the Carnegie Corporation. So that all 
your committee can do is to call your at- 
tention to the seriousness of the situa- 
tion as reflecting the attitude of mind of 
some communities towards the library and 
its support; the result as affecting further 
gifts for library buildings from the Car- 
negie Corporation; and the disastrous re- 
sults in communities which are doing with- 
out the library service they should have. 

And your committee would like to urge 
the A. L. A. to have this matter further 
considered by a subsequent committee 
which should be appointed at an early date 
so that an investigation and a report may

be made to the A. L. A. and that this report 
take into account: 

1. The results of the questionnaires as 
furnished by the Carnegie Corpora- 
tion. 

2. The legal status of local promise. 

3. Statement as to what action each 
state library department or associa- 
tion has taken to remedy conditions 
and problems met. 

4. That only somebody in closer rela- 
tions with the various towns such as 
a state library department or state 
library association, is in a position to 
carry on such an investigation intelli- 
gently and can make a report which 
will be fairer to both sides than a 
questionnaire sent out by the A. L. A. 
committee can possibly be. 

And suggests that the following action be 
taken : 

1. That the Carnegie Corporation be re- 
quested to furnish the A. L. A. with 
a list of delinquents as often as an in- 
vestigation is made. 

2. That the A. L. A. state the serious- 
ness of the situation to a state in hav- 
ing delinquent library support, unless 
there is some unusual reason for the 
same. 

3. That the A. L. A. request each State 
Library Department, or where there 
are no such departments, the state 
library associations, or where there 
are no such associations, the Gov- 
ernor, local library boards, municipal 
officers, or other civic associations to 
make a thorough investigation of any 
town where Carnegie library build- 
ings are reported by the Carnegie Cor- 
poration as not being supported as 
per contract, and render a report to 
the A. L. A. 

4. That either the A. L. A. or the various 
state departments or organizations 
publish a list of the delinquents. 

5. That libraries giving the required 
10% of the Carnegie Corporation are 
not living up to the spirit of the con- 
tract even if they are living up to the 
letter of it; that a larger requirement 



be set by the Carnegie Corporation of 
a per capita support of .50 and a popu- 
lation of 5,000, and that the contract 
contain a promise to answer the ques- 
tionnaires sent out by the Corpora- 
tion. 

6. That in the future an effort be made 
to create the right spirit towards a 
library and its upkeep when the ques- 
tion of securing a building is con- 
sidered and at the same time suggest 
to the Carnegie Corporation that they 
get in touch with the various State 
Library Commissions before they 
make such grants. 

7. That in recognition and appreciation 
of the interest Mr. Carnegie always 
took in establishing libraries and the 
manner in which the Carnegie Cor- 
poration has endeavored to continue 
to express this wish, that a copy of 
this report be sent to the Carnegie 
Corporation with a statement of what 
the A. L. A. plans to do to endeavor 
to remedy the trouble. And also call 
attention to the many places which 
have been giving a continual advance 
over the guaranteed amount to meet 
the growing needs of the library. 

Respectfully submitted,

JOINT COMMITTEE OF SEVEN 
The Joint Committee of Seven of the 
A. L. A. and the Special Libraries Associa- 
tion, held an informal meeting at Colorado 
Springs in connection with the A. L. A. 
annual meeting there, and another meeting 
in Detroit on September 25. A full report 
of the Detroit meeting was submitted to the 
Executive Board at the time and action 
taken thereon. This led to a reorganiza- 
tion of the committee. Since then there 
has been considerable correspondence, but 
no definite action has been taken by the 
Committee as a whole. It is expected to 
hold one or more meetings of this com- 
mittee at Swampcott.

LEGISLATION 

A number of bills have just arrived from 
Wisconsin. No report has been received 
from Illinois where important bills were 
pending. The California legislature is still 
in session. I am still waiting for infor- 
mation from several other states. 

Our report will be not merely a sum- 
mary by states but a review of legislation 
by subject. For this reason it would not be 
feasible to print a partial report. There 
will probably be some details still lacking 
at the time of the A. L. A. Conference, but 
I intend to have a report ready at that 
time. 

WM. F. YUST, Chairman. 

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATION 
A uniform form for library statistics was 
adopted by the Association in 1914. This 
form was distributed to some six or seven 
hundred libraries by the Secretary of the 
American Library Association and was 
used for reporting the work of those libra- 
ries to headquarters. The Association 
urged that all libraries use that form in 
preparing their own annual reports for 
publication as well as for submitting data 
annually to the headquarters of the Amer- 
ican Library Association. 

During the war the form went out of 
print and the reports from the libraries to 
headquarters were discontinued. 

The President of the Association felt in 
the fall of 1920 that the old form should be 
leprinted, or revised and printed, in order 
that the Secretary's office might have on 
file as much data as possible on the public 
libraries of the country submitted in a 
form that was easily comparable. She, 
therefore, asked the Committee on Library 
Administration to consider a revision of 
the old form. There was insufficient time 
to work it over as carefully as was desir- 
able, but a tentative revision was devised 
by the Committee and was distributed by 
the Secretary to the libraries of the coun- 
try in March. A considerable number of 
items were added to the old form and a 
few eliminations made. It seemed desir- 
able that the reports without being too long 



be as complete as possible, partly in order 
to reduce to a minimum the necessity of 
questionnaires. A brief outline of salary 
schedules and a numb
