WOOL RAISING AS AN INDUSTRY

Y OUR JOB BACK HOME has been published by the Library War Service
of the American Library Association for use on transports, in camps and
hospital libraries both here and overseas, and a special edition is being
prepared for public libraries. The general style and composition of the National
Geographic Magazine has been followed, and most of the plates used were
loaned the Association by that magazine. The volume is profusely illustrated
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.
