Subarrangements may be provided in this area only for countries that are established with whole or decimal numbers. Those countries that have been assigned Cutter numbers should not be further subarranged. The proposal was not approved.

Subject Headings

Folk songs, Puniave

Since no subject heading is yet established for the Puniave language, it may not be used as an adjectival qualifier. The proposal may be resubmitted together with a proposal to establish a heading for the language.

Fruit--Diesases and pests

It does not seem desirable to split general material on fruit diseases and pests between two headings. The proposal to remove the UF Fruit trees--Diseases and pests from the heading Fruit--Diseases and pests was not approved.


Since the heading Printing applies to many other items in addition to books, the BT Book industries and trade is not appropriate. The proposal was not approved.

School verse

The term "school poetry" is ambiguous and could refer to poetry about schools, for which the heading Schools--Poetry would be used. The UF School poetry was therefore not approved for this heading.
