	In cataloging a set of conference papers about the Book of Judges, I found
a snag in trying to classify it.
	The schedule for Judges is BS1301-1305.6.  I'm directed to open Table BS7.
It takes me as far as BS1305 for early criticism up to 1950.  Then there
follows the
date range I want, 1950 - 2000, with no corresponding modification in
the class number.
If I try to get the next half page, it flips me back to BS1303.5, but
then I'm able
to progress through BS1305.2, the number I need, and so on through to
as it is in the printed schedule.  Now that I have the hang of it, fine,
but it may be a while
before I do Bible criticism again and I'll only get confused once more.
	Can the table be tightened up into one sequence, please?  Same thing
with other books, e.g., Ruth.
