Melva  Dwyer,  Ann  Nelson,   Joyce Davidson,   Jim  Sharpe,   Pat Gibson,  John
Smith,  Jane Ainsworth and  Linda Hoffman, with Jack Mcintosh as  the
carry-over member.
During  the busy  term-time   it Is particularly  difficult  for turnstile attendants  -
especially  those who are part-time  student assistants  -  to  recognize   librarians and   library
staff   in general. Please make a point of  showing  the  turnstile attendant  anything
which you may  be carrying out of the  stacks and   of justifying yourself.     Attempted   laxity   in
this  regard   is discouraging   to  the attendant and  sets a  bad example  to students   in   line,
who may well  expect to be able  to emulate you.
The  budget   for supplies  being  nearly exhausted, while prices  continue to  rise,   all
staff members are urged  to economize on  the use of supplies   in any way possible.     Please
re-use envelopes and  the  blank backs of  sheets whenever possible.     Paper companies  have
already announced a  series  of price   increases which will   result   in a one-year   increase of
105fc by next March.
Applications are now  invited  for this  scholarship  from persons   resident   in  Canada,  who
hold a degree from a  recognized university and  in addition a  B.L.S.,  an M.L.S.,   or  the

The  scholarship  bears  the name of  the grandmother of Sir Basil   Blackwell,   President
of B.H.   Blackwell   Ltd.     She was the wife of  the first  City  Librarian of  Oxford,   and  the
mother of  the founder of the present company.     The  scholarship has  been  established   to aid
a librarian  to carry out   research   in matters of common  concern to  libraries and  to  the  book
