NEW YORK, Aug. 13. Tho

Important newspaper tiles -which,
since wood pulp superseded' rags In
the manafactaro of newsprint, has
bafned librarians alt over the
world, at laat apparently has boon
wired by officials ot tho Now York
After seven yoars of experimenta
tion, backed by tho cooperation ot
three dally papera each ot which
has spent fSOOO a year to find tho
beat presenratlTo method, tho offi
cials believe they hare discovered
the correct solution, that ot mount
tlng each newspaper abeet between
two sheets of thin Japaneso tlssuo.
This ahuts tho original sheet
from the air, reduces Its legibility
but slightly, strengthens the page
and permits Its free handling with
out danger ot disintegration.
As almost everyone, knows, tho
newspapers ot EO years ago were
printed on rag stock and were tough
and durable. You see them In tho
libraries almost In aa good a condl
tloa aa the day they were printed.
Not so with the Journals printed
since the 70's and 80's ot the past
century, according to Harry ,M. Ly
denberg, chief reference librarian in
New York public library. Wood pulp
paper becomes yellow and brittle af
ter exposure, he said.
' Bound volumes treated by tho new
process' hare bees in dally use at
the library for some time and are
free from the marks of wear and
tear "shown by lees fortunate con
temporaries. The library has a regular depart
ment for the treating of newspaper
files of three New York dallies. With
the aid of recently perfected mechan
ical equipment It prepares the papers
at ft cost of about 35 to 140 n
bound volume, which is paid for by
the publishers in order that their
papers may be preserved in tho li

"The paper problem is acute only
Is the case of papera printed on
ground pulp stock." continued Mr.
Lydenberg. r -
"Papera of the present period are
certain ot complete disintegration
within ft short time. Paper maker
could make better stock If the pre
sure for speed was not so great and
mora time could be taken to rish
the chlorine and other bleaching ele
ments from the pulp. But makers
must keep their cost down and that
usually means a weakening of qual
Mr. Lydenberg said that extensive
experiments with chemical solutions
put on new stock by. spray or brush
had failed because so chemical treat
ment would patch up torn sheets nor
fill in hroken spots. The use ot chif
fon, or thin light silk, also failed
to come up to the tests made with
the Japanese paper.
Experiments are being continued
at the library, Mr. Lydenberg said,
with the hope that some still bet
ter process ot preservation may be
found. He said experiments also vore
being made with an American Man
ufactured tissue paper.
"We may also use this method to
preserve old books," be added, "as
It will work out the same there as
with the newspapers."
The New York method, Mr. Ly
denberg said, is now used by a Chi
