As our c o l l e c t i o n contained

these items they were placed in th is department. Also 29 volumes from the g i f t of Miss L i l l i a n Huffcut.

^ S giements. Cn account o f the recent a c t i v i t y o f the various la^ures in e s ta b lis h in g Public Service Commissions, i t was advisable to secure as many of these reports and deC1 ° nB aR p o s s ib le .

During the year 546 items have been adde^,

at a small expense, from 50 s ta te s and f o r e ig n cou n tries. The value o f these rep o rts and d ecisio n s is shown by the f a c t that two competing companies have s ta rte d t o publish sets con­ ta in in g nearly the same m a te ria l. A set o f the New In te rn a tio n a l Encyclopaedia, 2d e d it io n and the Encyclopaedia o f Evidence are among the important ad d ition s.
