Medical Library Is Moved To Cooperstowtv Yesterday was another moving day for the Medical Center Library, which for the third time has out- grown its present temporary quart- ers. And the move was a stranje one to Coopcrstown. Alfred Brandon, chief librarian tor the Medical Center Library, which is now housed in the base- ment of the Margaret I. King Library, said the move to a Coop- erstown apartment was necessary provide additional space for the thousands of volumes being col- lected. At present, periodicals and new volumes are housed In the library basement. Some 20.000 to 30,000 bound volumes are being stored In the Library Annex, located on the third floor of the Maintenance and Operations Building. Yester- day the first of new shipments of books was moved to Cooperstown. Brandon said the additional stor- ace space will provide room for about 20,000 volumes. The medical library will event- ually be housed In the Medical Sciences Building, now under con- struction on the Medical Center site. If construction proceeds ac- cording to schedule, Brandon said the library will move into its new ?v l " J v quarters soon after the first of the year. Brandon and his staff begin ac- cumulating medical literature in November, 1957. Since that time more than 30.000 volumes have been collected. Many of the vol- umes are rare volumes or out-odate books. The library currently has more than 900 medical journals. The problem of collecting vol- umes is not an easy task, Brandon warned. Many books, particularly volumes, are bought on the foreign market through rare book dealers.

UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY Vol. L LEXINGTON, KY., THURSDAY, MARCH 5, 1959 No. 75 Kernel Gets-- Firsts In Nationwide Contest 2 111 A Scene From 'Cyrano9 Cyrano, played by William F. Nave, tells Roxanne, Melanie Fessler, of his love In one of the more romantic scenes from the Guignol Flayers' production of "Cyrano de Bergerac." It opened last night. 'Cyrano Portrayal Called 'Delightful' 9 By NANCY MEADOWS From the overture music to the last drop of the curtain. "Cyrano de Bergerac" as portrayed by the Guignol Players is delightful. That's this writer's opinion, not from a threatre critic but from one who enjoys a good play. "Cyrano tie Bergerac" opened last night in Guignol Theatre. A larpe crowd of students, townspeople and faculty members were on hand lor the opening night production. Most convincing in his starring role of Cryano the ugly, chivalrous, adventurous soldier with the oversize nose is William Nave. From his first dashing entrance on stage, he gains the interest of the audience and the rapport remains throughout the play. One audience member who became entranced with Nave said: "He speaks his lines with complete knowledge of what he is saying, he moves about the stage of a with the ease and know-hoprofessional. He's not Jose Ferrer, but he sure comes close to it." Ferrer played the lead role in the movie union of "Cyrano." But tlieie were several times when Nave seemed uncertain of his liras and actions. Here his p,.f.Hs rerc .mailed, although he reofied himself quickly. inn the diuling scene in Act One, one of Cyrano's best speeches, Nave's lines were muffled by th3 dueling action. Generally, however, his speech and actions were well Integrated and he carried off his part excellently. Roxanne, delightfully played by Melanie Fessler, seemed a little uncertain of her role. At times she seemed perfectly suited to her feminine lead, whil e atother times she was lacking in the character of the role. She was never able to gain the audience contact, as was Nave, although this was partly her role. She seemed most at ease in Act 2, as she tells Cyrano of her w UK Music Department, was excellent in his role as Ragneau, the party-r.'.ake- r. Fine performances' were given by Joe Ray as the marquis and Bob Lyne as Lignieve. The scenery, lighting and 17th century costumes are excellent and add much to the total enjoyment of the play. Five acts, each with scenery, compose the different Rostand play, set in France. Wallace Briggs directs the play. Mrs. Lolo Robinson, associate director, is in charge of costumes. Read is responsible for set decorations and lighting. Tim For an enjoyable evening filled with lots 'of humor and a touch of sadness, see the Guignol proruns nightly duction, which through Saturday.
