THE Annual Conference of the Library Association will soon be upon us, and we understand that the Council of the L.A. is well advanced in the matter of its arrangements. We sincerely hope, however, that it is not too late for us to emphasize the importance of a less crowded programme. There was a multitude of matters dealt with at Cardiff, but the time bogey was ever en evidence. There can be no practical use for points to be raised obviously inviting discussion, and then for those interested to have no opportunity either to commend, correct or condemn certain statements made. There were many brilliant orations unspoken at Cardiff Pleasant platitudes are soothing, but we have a recollection of one librarianand a lady at thatcommenting on one address as offal, or word to that effect. We want practical papers instead of pleasantries fewer papers and more opportunity for an exchange of views. Let the Conference be a conference
