Trustees for the Buffalo, N.Y., public library, who expected two Los Angeles women to donate part of Mark Twain's original manuscript of "Huckleberry Finn," are threatening to go to court, charging that the women are demanding money for the priceless document. The Buffalo library's board of trustees voted Thursday to establish in court that the library owns the first half of the manuscript, found by one of the sisters two months ago in a trunk containing her grandfather's belongings.

A long-lost "Huckleberry Finn" manuscript discovered stashed away in a Hollywood attic appears to be destined for the Buffalo, N.Y., public library to which Mark Twain donated it more than a century ago. Sotheby's of New York, in announcing the rare find Wednesday, said there are no plans to auction the priceless manuscript, and the Hollywood librarian who made the discovery said she probably will return the handwritten papers to Buffalo.

In Susan Goldberg Kent, the newly appointed city librarian, Los Angeles is getting a nationally recognized professional, a savvy politician, a skillful fund-raiser-- and she abhors quiet. "She doesn't have a bun on her head. She's not stuffy, distant or intellectual but a real hands-on person," said her husband of three years, poet Rolly Kent, who met his future wife through a writers workshop series she launched while she was deputy director of the Tucson Public Library in the 1980s.
