ONE OF THE FARMER'S MONEYMAKERS
Small herds on eastern farms are increasing in number, because of the
nearness of markets and the cheapness of land, especially in New England.
Coffey's "Productive Sheep Husbandry," which has taken an expert five years
to write, is a complete guide.

and is composed of 64 pages, containing the work of well-known artists; also
excellent photographs depicting the trades, with forceful titles carrying the
book suggestion of the job back home to the returned soldier. The list of
books appended is referred to throughout the volume, and publishers are
prepared to expedite deliveries. The interesting text has been endorsed by
the Labor Department and adds to the value of the volume. The special
edition is bound in cloth, gold lettered, to sell at cost price, fifty cents.

Foreign
Trade
The American flag
is waiting to carry
our products to for-
eign lands-flying
over a new and grow-
ing AMERICAN
MERCHANT MA-
RINE. Our goods
must restock war-
ravaged Europe.
South America will offer a greater mar-
ket than ever. With German trade, so
strong before the war, now under an
overwhelming moral disadvantage,
American products will win out-if we
know the ground.
The man who knows will succeed.
American trade in South America needs
the student. Certain hard lessons must
be learned, ignorance of which caused
failure before the war. We must learn
the physical and economic facts of South
America; we must know Spanish; we
must learn to understand the Spanish-
American temperament with its remark-
able business aptitude.
The man who would know South
America must visit it. But as a prelim-
inary, he can study books on the geog-
raphy and economics of the "Ten Re-
publics." Understanding South
America, by Cooper, describes the na-
tional background, the natural resources.

Reid's The Young Man's Chances
in South and Central America tells
the young American farmer, teacher,

America and the West Indies-the
crossroads of the western world.
Filsinger's Exporting to Latin
America gives straight facts. The
author was formerly president of the
Latin-American Trade Association.
IFor the larger field of foreign trade,
Hough's Practical Exporting deals
with sales organization, shipping and
packing, marine insurance, credits, and

Principles of Ocean Transporta-

Ships-
And Yet
More Ships
In war and in peace,
the United States
needs ships.  Food,
clothing, coal, and
other supplies are
needed in Europe.
There is an increas-
ing market in foreign
countries for many
products of American
manufacture as fast as we can build ships
and send the products across. The
MERCHANT MARINE is recruiting
men for its service; American labor must
keep up the supply of ships.
Shipyards call for strong men expe-
rienced in a variety of trades. Here are
a few of them: architect, boiler maker,
carpenter, engineer, fireman, machine
shop worker, riveter, sheet metal worker
-and many others.
Your skill and knowledge in special
trades insure you a job. Read books on
your trade, and books about shipbuild-
ing, too. Here are titles of some of them.
The Shipbuilding Industry, by
Kelly and Allen, has been written with
the assistance of the U.S. Shipping
Board. The achievements of our ship.
yards are thrillingly described.
Shipyard Employment, prepared
for the Shipping Board, gives an idea of

(OVER)

the multitude of trades necessary to
shipbuilding. Maybe yours is one of
them.
MacBride's Handbook of Practical
Shipbuilding is an authority on the
division of work, the tools, the succes-
sive operations in the construction of a
typical cargo vessel.
How Wooden Ships Are Built, by
Estep, and Van Gaasbeek's Wooden
Boat and Shipbuilding tell of con-
struction work-the former a popular
account illustrated by many photo-
graphs, the latter an instruction book
for carpenters.
Naval Architecture Simplified, by
Desmond, is adapted to the beginner
and is practical and full enough for use
of the commercial designer.

brarv service is free everywhere.

American
Merchant
Marine
Needs Men
Tens of thousands
of men are needed
now for the American
Merchant Marine
Service.  Our over-
seas commerce has its
greatest years before
it. American prod-
ucts will find mar-
kets all over the
globe, and not only ships but thousands
of men must carry them. The romance
of the sea pictured many years ago in
Dana's Two Years Before the Mast
still exists, and its hardships are les-
sened.
Riesenberg's Under Sail is a thrill-
ing account of one of the last voyages
around Cape Horn in a wooden ship
propelled by sail alone-a ship in the
American Merchant Service.
Conditions have changed since the
times pictured in those books. The
MERCHANT MARINE has grown
and declined and is rising again. Prin-
ciples of Ocean Transportation, by
Johnson and Huebner, explains the
present merchant marine policy of the
United States, giving general statistical
information.
Naval and merchant service are both
described in Knight's Seamanship-

(OVER)

the standard American book on that
subject.
A handy little volume on what a
modern American seaman should know
is Riesenberg's The Man on Deck.
Manuals on navigation are numerous
and useful. The American Practical
Navigator, by Bowditch, is so indis-
pensable that it is called "the naviga-
tor's Bible."
Jacoby's Navigation is written es-
pecially for men studying without a
teacher. The Whys and Wherefores
of Navigation, by Bradford, is for
marines who wish to know more about
the guiding principles of navigation.
Books on weather signs, on marine
engineering, on ocean transportation
and foreign trade are also useful to men
in the service and to those about to
enlist.
Ask for these books and for others
on any line of work that interests you
at YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY. Li-
brary service is free everywhere.

The Choice
of a
Profession
if you are headed
toward a professional
career, you must be
sure your choice is
right.  The profes-
sions are over-
crowded. Years of
training, at heavy ex-
pense, are required.
Sometimes earning
power does not begin for several yearn
after college. It grows slowly, and i- not
reached in full until middle life.
But if you succeed in your profession
you will live a full life, rich in human
values. You will be a recognized servant
of the community.
Books can start you along the right
road. Vocational Guidance for the
Professions, by Brewster, is a straight
talk on how to judge yourself and your
ability, and how to make your choice.
Engineering as a Career, consisting
of papers on the subject by prominent
engineers, enables the reader to see that
profession through the eyes of some of
its biggest men.
The opportunities and perils awaiting
the minister in his chosen profession, and
the relation of his work to church, home,
and the world of affairs, are set forth by
Jowett in The Preacher, His Life and
Work.

(OVZR)

Medicine as a Profession, by
Weaver, answers every question about
the profession which might occur to the
man who wishes to enter it.
Allen's The Law as a Vocation takes
up the various branches of the profession,
its opportunities, the necessary prepara-
tion, and the period of entering into
practice.
The Field of Social Service, by
Davis, presents the appeal of various
lines of social service. Professions of
public service, helping to fight disease,
crime and poverty, are presented in The
Youth and the Nation. by Moore.
The Profession of Teaching, by
Woodley, discusses the demands made
upon a teacher, his opportunity for use-
ful service, and some of his methods.
Ask for these books and for others
on any line of work that interests you
at YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY. Li-
brary service is free everywhere.

Journalism
Without the news-
papers, the war could
not have been won.
It was the press which
built up public opin-
ion into the common
will to victory that
made possible the
welding of manpower,
ships, food, money,
and armament into
the great fighting
strength of a nation.
For the journalist, there is inspiration
in the knowledge that his work reaches
and influences thousands. It holds for
him the charm of the unexpected. Each
day brings a new experience. Each day
he can make a fresh start, forgetting the
mistakes of yesterday. A newspaper
lives but a day; today it is on the press,
tomorrow on the pantry shelves.
There is no school like experience for
the newspaper man, but much that the
"cub" reporter ought to know has been
put into books. News Writing, by
Speicer, gives an insight into the work
which will help carry a reporter through
his first week, the most nerve-raclkig
of his journalistic career. It explains the
nature of news, how to get it, and how
to prepare it for the copy desk.
Hyde, in Newspaper Editing, deals
with the work of the copy readers and
re-write men of the editorial staff, who

turn the reporter's raw material, "news,"
into the finished product. This book
tells about headline writing.
Newspaper Building, by Rogers, is
an application of efficiency to editing,
mechanical productioq, circulation and
advertising.
The Country Weekly, by Bing,
covers thoroughly the field of country
journalism.
Essentials in Journalism, by Har-
rington and Frankenberg, is a system-
atic treatment of newsgathering, editing,
and newspaper management.
Bleyer's Newspaper Writing and
Editing is an explanation of the work
of the editorial staff.
These books are practical, illustrating
points by actual newspaper stories.
Ask for these books and for others
on any line of work that interests you
at YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY. Li-
brary service is free everywhere.

Now that the war is over, and you
are back home, the next thing to
tackle is your job. Books will help
you get that job, or brush up on the

THERE are books on every trade
and profession at which men have
worked. Some of them tell of suc-
cesses, some of failures. Read and
learn how to succeed in your work.

Picking
the Job
That Fits
Maybe you have a
job waiting for you.
If you have, you'll
find that books will
help you brush up on
details you may have
forgotten while learn-
ing to win the war.

If you're undecided as to what to do,
the books on opportunities in different
kinds of work will help you choose.
Practical advice about the choice of
work, and on making good, is given in
The Young Man and His Vocation,
by Harris.
A study of the openings in agriculture,
commercial occupations, transportation,
civil service, manufacturing, building
and machine trades, engineering, medi-
cine, teaching and other professions will
be found in Gowin and Wheatley's Oc-
cupations.
In Business Employments, by Al-
len, is treated the business side of manu-
facturing, of modern retail trade and of
finance, with concrete illustrations
drawn from shoe manufacture, a depart-
ment store, and a study of banking insti-
tutions.

Boys suggests many possibilities of
worth-while work for men.
If professional work appeals to you
more than business or industrial work,
you will find suggestions about training
for law, the ministry, teaching, medi-
cine, scientific work, engineering, agri-
culture, journalism and other fields, and
the openings in them, in Brewster's
Vocational Guidance for the Pro-
fessions.
Work in the public service, helping to
fight disease, crime, and poverty, is
stirringly presented in The Youth and
the Nation, by Moore.
And there are other books, not only
on general occupations, but also on
special kinds of work. Some of them are
sure to fit your interests and ability, and
start you in the right direction.

Salesmanship
Knowledge of hu-
man nature learned
by personal observa-
tion and experience
helps to make a good
salesman. Books are
also guides to charac-
ter and enable us to
observe more keenly.
In books successful
business men have
pointed the road to
greater efficiency.
One practical guide is Taylor's What
a Salesman Should Know, which
deals with traveling salesmanship.
Salesmanship, by Maxwell, treats
of sales in department stores as well as
on the road. Advertising and Selling,
by Hollingworth, and Mahin's Adver-
tising, Selling the Consumer are
everyday, practical books. Holling-
worth tells how to size up customers,
and Mahin is an authority on develop-
ing a market through intelligently
planned advertising campaigns.
Marketing methods, personal sales-
manship, training people to sell more
goods, and supervision of the selling
force are described in Retail Selling,
by Fisk, an experienced manager in
various types of stores. The chapters on
training employees to sell more goods
are especially thorough.

Moody's Men Who Sell Things is
a popular book of personal observations
and experiences written by a man who
for twenty years was a traveling sales-
man, European buyer, sales manager
and employer. He says, "What the
world of salesmanship wants is educated
rithusiasm." His book and others on
the subject contribute toward the edu-
cation advocated.

Steam
Engineering
Steam power is so,
important in modern
industry, and used in
so many different ap-
plications, that all
engineering men
should have some
knowledge of it.

p
I

The operating engineer who wants to
understand the underlying principles of
the machinery in his charge will find a
clear explanation in Hirshfeld and Ul-
bricht's Steam Power.
Modern Steam Engineering, by
Hiscox, is a popular description of stand-
ard apparatus and practice.
Crane's American Stationary En-
gineering is a manual of practical com-
ment and advice for operating engineers.
Boiler-room equipment and the prin-
ciples of economic combustion are ex-
plained in Shealy's Steam Boilers.
Valves and governing devices are
fully treated in Mechanism of the
Steam Engine, by James and Dole.

There are other books that relate to
special applications of steam power-to
such subjects as marine and naval engi-
neering, the layout and equipment of
power plants, and boiler management
and inspection.

Applied
Drawing
"One of the most
interesting and im-
portant by-products
of the war is seen in
the changed attitude
of our nation to art,"
says the president of
the New York School
of Fine and Applied
Art.  He attributes
our greater interest in applied art to its
commercial development in goods we
have been obliged to produce, to the es-
tablishment of the poster as an adver-
tising necessity, and to the suitability
of this work for disabled soldiers.
There are certainly more fields open
to the man with talent for drawing and
design than ever before. Books on vari-
ous kinds of applied drawing are sug-
gestive of many possibilities for work.
Barritt's How to Draw is a good in-
troductory book. General drawing and
sketching, with special reference to illus-
tration, are included.
A special book on illustration, decora-
tive design, and lettering, is a volume in
the International Library of Tech-
nology - No. 150. Caricaturing and
cartooning are included.

Book covers, advertisements, posters,
and photo-engraving are among the
subjects treated in Chase's Decorative
Design, which gives briefly a knowledge
of elementary principles.
Mechanical drafting is a working tool
necessary to all engineers. Svensen's Es-
sentials of Drafting is a good elemen-
tary textbook. Emgineering Drawing,
by French, is more advanced.
Architectural Drawing, by Edmin-
ster, is one of the best for students of
this work, based on a course given at
Pratt Institute.
A knowledge of lettering is necessary
in technical drawing and also in art de-
sign. The architect, engineer, and poster
designer will find Essentials of Letter-
ing, by French and Meiklejohn, useful.

Carpenters
and Builders
Needed!
During the war,
practically all private
building ceased. As
fast as men return
from camps and from
overseas, building and
other normal activi-
ties will be resumed,
and carpenters and builders will be
needed.
There are many books useful to men
who are going into this work. Griffith'p
Carpentry and Townsend's Carpentry
and Joinery are handy volumes, prac-
tical and well illustrated. The former
contains a useful chapter on estimating.
Modern Carpentry, in two volumes.
by Hodgson, includes brief courses in
plane and solid geometry that help in
attaining speed in work. Joiner's work,
case making, practical construction
problems and the mechanics of carpen-
try are included.
The steel square is so important a
tool that it is the subject of several
special hooks. Two volumes by Hodg-

son on The Steel Square, give full in-
formation about the use of the tool.
Jobbing Work for the Carpenter,
by Crussell, gives useful points on odd
jobs and repair work.
There are special books on building,
on plumbing, architecture, decorating,
concrete construction, painting and other
building trades.

Toolmaking
The modern ma-

on skilful toolmak-
ers and their product.
Unique opportuni-
ties await men in the
designing and mak-
ing of tools and de-
vices for special op-
erations. Print does
not keep up with this subject, but there
are a few important books.
Markham's Toolmaking is practical
and instructive, written by an experi-
enced engineer and teacher.
Modern Toolmaking Methods,
by Jones, contains material from articles
by expert workers which have appeared
in Machinery, some of them being in-
cluded in Machinery's well known
Reference Series.
Toolmakers' Kinks, by Colvin and
Stanley, is a handy little volume of
practical hints originally scattered
through issues of the American Machi"-
iss.

(OVER)

Many tools are made in whole or in
part by the skilled blacksmith. Forge-
craft, tempering ainnealing, etc., as ap-
plied to toolmaking. are included in
Holford's Twentieth Century Tool-

Many men have
taken emergency
courses in machine
shop work to meet the
demands of war condi-
tions. Men who re-
main in the trade will
wish not only to de-
velop more skill in
operation but also to
have more knowledge of the work in
order to fit themselves for better posi-
tions.
Machine Shop Practice, by Hart.
man, is a handy, introductory guide for
men with little or no experience.
Kaup's Machine Shop Practice is a
more thorough textbook.
A book written for men who have had
one or two years' experience in a modern
machine shop is Halsey's Methods of
Machine Shop Work. It lays special
emphasis on the development of various
machines and processes and has excel-
lent illustrations.
Smith's Textbook of Advanced Ma-
chine Work is the most useful book on
the subject, suitable for students, in-
structors, and machinists. Details of
operations are fully described and illus-
trated by many cuts.

Banking
The passage of the
Federal Reserve Act,
which made the
American financial
system "as safe as the
Bank of England",
was declared by an
English financial ex-
pert to be a greater
thing for the world's -
trade than the Pana-
ma Canal. It was a
greater discovery, he said, than half a
dozen African gold fields. Recent booke
on banking and finance give much atten-
tion to the Federal Reserve Act, ena-
bling the reader to realize its far-reach-
ing effect upon the American financial
aystem.
To the man who senses the stimula-
tion and the fascination of banking as
his own profession, Elementary Bank-
ing, by Ebersole, will give the knowl-
edge of commercial documents and
banking practice and the standards of
personal conduct with which he should
begin his work. Practical Banking, by
Harris, presents in simple language the
organization of the modern American
bank. A more advanced work is The
Practical Work of a Bank, by Kniffin,
describing in great detail all the fune-
tions of a bank.
Organized Banking, by Agger, takes
account of the financial problems raise
;OVBR)

by the war. It deals with the bank as a
part of the financial system of the nation
and of the world. Clearing houses and
international credits and reserves are
explained,
Funds and Their Uses, by Cleve-
land; explains the nature of funds and
the methods of obtaining them. It deale
also with the institutions and agencies
employed in funding operations.
American Banking, by Willis, sets
forth in a well organized manner the
banking system of America, and its re-
lation to the financial systems of other
countries. The Federal Reserve System
is treated in detail.
The origin and development of Ameri-
can banking methods are given in
Money and Banking, by White.

Electrical
Work
Many men reading
biographies like
Leupp's recent life of
George Westing-
house become more
interested in electri-
cal or engineering
problems because of
the inventor's achievements.   Biog-
raphies are often as effective as personal
experience in attracting men to certain
kinds of work.
Practical books are needed by the
electrician. Elements of Electricity
for Technical Students, by Timbie,
is one of the best introductory books.
Swoope's Lessons in Practical Elec-
tricity is a textbook of principles with-
out advanced theory.
The general electrician wants a book
on electrical machinery describing con-
struction, operation and repair, such as
Croft's Electrical Machinery.
Two handy manuals are Wiring for
Light and Power, by Croft, and

Modern Electrical Construction, by
Horstmann and Tousley, the latter con-
taining the rules of the "National Elec-
trical Code" of the National Board of
Fire Underwriters.
And there are also books on all
branches of applied electricity and elec-
trical communication.

Advertising
Not long ago a well
known writer made
the statement that
the war could be won
by advertising. It is
certainly true that
convincing appeals to
the people on the
Liberty Loan, Red
Cross, United War
Work, War Savings
Stamps and other
national campaigns have been made
through advertising, including the art
of the poster.
Business so greatly depends on adver-
tising that a whole literature has been
written on the subject. The best books
on advertising are naturally the ones
that help a man get results. Such a
book is Productive Advertising, by
Hess.
How to Advertise, by French, and
Making Type Work, by Sherbow, give
definite instructions and illustrations for
design and layout of advertisements.
A book that is practical because in its
original form it consisted of lectures
given under the auspices of the Adver-
tising Men's League of New York City,
is Hollingworth's Advertising and Sell-
ing, a study of the "principles of appeal
and response."

Railroad
Engineering
Transportation
problems are perhaps
the most vital in the

inghouse. "The battle of the brakes"
is a chapter as thrilling as fiction.
The Modern Railroad, by Hunger-
ford, tells in detail about the problems
of railroad operation. It is well illus-
trated and very readable.
The whole subject of railroading-
company formation, valuation, con-
struction, bridges, sidings, yards, loco-
motives, betterment surveys-is con-
sidered in Raymond's Elements of
Railroad Engineering. The upkeep
of a railroad's physical equipment is
described with many illustrations
and charts in Sellew's Railway

Children of War
By Louis Unterneyer
Not for a transient victory, or some
Stubborn belief that we alone are right;
Not for a code or conquest do we fight,
But for the crowded millions still to come.
This, unborn generations, is your war,
Although it is our blood that pays the price.
Be worthy, children, of our sacrifice,
And dare to make your lives worth fighting for.
We give up all we love that you may loathe
Intrigue and darkness; that you may disperse
The ranks of ugly tyrannies and, worse,
The sodden languor and complacent sloth.
Do not betray us, then, but come to be
Creation's crowning splendor, not its slave;
Knowing our lives were spent to make you brave.
And that our deaths were meant to set you free.
(Collier's Weekly, June 16, 1917)

Co-operative War Lists

War Year

The year 1917 is pregnant with opportunities for libraries.
Opportunities to give the people information that will at once be
vitally useful and will prove tle practical worth of the library as
has never yet been done.

To continue the work started by the A. L. A. War Con-
inittee at Louisville, every library should take immediate steps to
A. L. A.     get its literature on war time subjects into use by the public.
The imperative need is for short bock lists which can be widely
distributed to readers.

Expert List

Your Town

Additional
Lists

Live Books
Only

Following a suggestion made by a group of librarians, we
have published several lists on timely subjects ihade prominent
by the war. Each list has been caieftlly compiled and revised
by librarians and by experts on that particular subject. For
instance, the lists on poultry, gardei ing, canning and foods are
approved by the A. L. A. Food Committee. The libraries are
planning to distribute these lists through pay envelopes, store
bundles, by Boy Scouts, and in man' other ways.
Each list can be used in any town large or small, north,
south, east or west. No library ima print is used because none
is needed.
Other lists will be prepared as soon as possible. All of
them are brief. It is not the intention to show the complete
resources of the library on the subjects covered, but to create a
wide interest on the part of the public, by distributing short lists
among non-users and stimulate the demand for library books on
these important subjects, thus increasing the library's service to
the Nation.
Before a list is issued, inquiries are made of the publishers
to ascertain whether any titles are out of print. All books or
pamphlets found to be out of print or of which there are only a
few in stock have been omitted. This is a most important
feature.

All of the lists are conpiled under the super-
vision of the A. L. A. War Committee and are
published by us with the co-operation and
approval of this committee.
