ENDINGS AND BEGINNINGS
It's spring - the trees are in leaf, the days are getting
longer.  It is a time for new ideas, new resolutions, new beginnir.i
Your fellow Library workers who comprise the editorial staff of
Biblos are just as susceptible to this feeling as anyone else and v,
feel that the time has come for a change.  Some of us have worked
on Biblos for five years, all of us at least two.  We have all
enjoyed it and there have been times -when we have beer, very proud
of our efforts.  However, the blood of most of the present
Biblostaff, if I may coin a phrase, is more than a little tired an:
we would like to pass the torch on to newer 'and fresher hands.
And so, with this issue we announce regretfully our
intention to resign and at the same time we ask that other members
of the staff come forward and take our places

IV Woodward MUSIC LIBRARY ASSOCIATION MID-WINTER MEETING
The Music Library Association's annual mid-winter meeting
took place at the University of Indianna at Bloomington,
Indiana on February 1-3, 1973.  About 250 Canadian and American
music librarians and cataloguers participated in this joint
meeting with the Association for Recorded Sound Collections.
The main sessions dealt with the following topics:
1. Music Library budgets - preparation, defense and
implementation.
2. Education for music librarianship - what should It
consist of?
3. Interlibrary loan, cooperative purchasing and
discarding of sound recordings - a report on British
practices, by E:T. Bryant, well-known British writer
on librarianship.
4. An open committee-meeting of the MLA Cataloguing and
Classification Committee.  A very informative part
of this session was a report on trends and plans in
the music cataloguing section at the Library of
Congress.
5. Performance practice problems in Joseph Haydn.
6. Sound recordings bibliography, and requirements for
archivists in sound recordings collections..
In addition, of course, there were the usual business
sessions, tours of several notable libraries on the campus, and
a visit to the Musical Arts Center, Indiana University's opera
house.  One of the highlights of the meetings was a creditable
performance of Mozart's Die Zauberflote by students and faculty
In the Musical Arts Center.• We were proudly Informed several
times that this is the largest music school in the world with
1600 majors.
MLA is a well-organized but very democratic association,
small enough to allow all viewpoints to be heard and for anyone
who so desires to participate actively.  One of the most
gratifying aspects of it Is that LC's music personnel is very
closely Involved, giving music librarians what could be des- Music Library Association. Mid-Winter Meeting cont'd
cribed as an open line to the central agency where many music
library decisions are made, especially in technical processing
aspects.  Seven or eight music publishers and dealers enlivened
the conference with displays of their latest publications.
Attendance at the meetings was enjoyable, informative and
stimulating.  But, perhaps the thing about the entire experience
that will be most unforgettable, will be the trip itself.  It all
began with standing In line for an hour at the airport in Van.
while each prospective passenger's luggage was searched.  Next
came an examination of one's clothes and person by a metal-
detecting device called a magnetometer, culminating with rather
detailed questioning and sundry other indignities.  (I had no
hi-jacking plans, but one Is tempted by various sorts of possible
revenge after all that!)
The flight from Vancouver to Chicago was uneventful and
even anti-climactic.  Leaving Chicago, however, turned out to
be something else.  At 7 p.m. we were loaded Into a small bus
and wheeled across the airfield at breakneck speed, dodging planes
gasoline trucks and other buses, finally pulling up beside an

rather severe claustrophobia, cramps, nausea and general fear,
everything was just fine as we sat in the darkness with engines
roaring, watching aircraft of all sizes and descriptions coming
and going in all directions, keeping up O'Hare Field's reputation as one of the busiest in the world.  Mercifully the time
passed, and we eventually headed for the runway.  Outside our
cockpit's front windows there were DC-8's, Boeing 707's and
727's lined up nose-to-tail as far as the eye could see,
waiting their turn to take off.  Right In line came our midget
with more of the big boys right behind us.  Insignificance
became a very significant concept!  When we finally accelerated sufficiently down the runway for takeoff and headed into
a very dense cloud cover, I remember thinking that if this was
the way we  were all finally going to go, it had, at least been
very exciting!  I watched the dials In the cockpit closely
for any sign of Impending disaster, and finally concentrated
on one, the hand of which gyrated wildly, between 60 and 320
(whatever that might mean!)  thinking at first it might be the
altimeter, only to discover that it ^^/as my very own pulse rate I
Three hours and two intermediate stops later, we were finally
deposited at a miniscule terminal building five miles outside
Bloomington!
I came the same way on the return trip in brilliant sunshine four days later, only to discover that a number of others
had decided, as a sanity-retaining solution, to go from
Bloomington to Chicago by bus!

■ODE TO A LIBRARY LADY
. .„, When he took, her to dinner, he talked about checking her
out and returning her later to the stacks.  He sighed over her supple
binding, the ease with, which, she slipped from her jacket.  He inspected
her font, caressed her epigraphs, deplored, affectionately, the size
of her bibliography.  On an occasion when she was overdue, he worried
to me about penalties and fines.
"At least," he mused one day when he was talking himself into
love, "she was not uncut at the time I met her. That proves she wasn't
designed exclusively for display.  Not, "he added hurriedly, "that she
was dog-eared."
from WEDLOCK, a novel by A.J.Langguth
