Summary of Statistics for Receipts, Processing,, and Dis- bursments of the Map Library Division, December 1956 (on next page), 2n The tapering off of the urgent calls for maps of the Near Fast, together w_th the advent of the Christmad seaso4 contributed to a decreased activity in the Map Library, in most parts, This was reflected in numbers of requests for service, as well as in sheets issued, 34 OTR, was furnished appropriate maps for the new course, The Use of Maps for Intelligence osea, Samples of v.srioua map projections, s cal s, grids, and#o a sy mio were selected for presentation during the course and quantities of other maps were provided for class exercises.
