library have in no way given up their
fight, the Reverend John D. Rice of St.
Andrews Episcopal church declared this'
morning, following the announcement
by the extension committee of the
library board Wednesday that it had in
no way changed its decision, and that
the new library would be established on
the Lombard-Fiske aite. !

that, the decision of the extension com

give the community organization two

community be subjected to a time lim
