Heidelberg Requests Second-Hand Books

Is an open letter, to students, Heidelberg University requests secondhand books, principally American literature, to rebuild its war-tern library of American classics.

Richard Stern, director of the German university's English seminar, writes that the American books are needed for some 300 students attending lectures on American literature. "Literary soldiers stripped the pre-war shelves," explains Stern.

Plans have not yet been formulated here to meet this request.
