Teams of oxen and carts have been contributed by the mountain folk to haul into their respective centers loads of books from "out yonder." Books and magazines are soon worn out in the hands of these people. Before long, they are "thummed" almost beyond repair. Yet, there is an ever-increasing demand that builds and grows. To say that these mountain folk are eagtr is no exaggeration. Not when the,e are hundreds of cases on record to prove that men, women, and children have walked miles to meet the "book lady," fearing, all th while, something might have happened to delay or prevent her arrival. Just recently a young man walked eight miles from his home to a library center for a new supply of books. The "book lady" visits his home only once a month, so alter reading the seven books she had left for him, he was too impatient to wait for her regular call. The urgent need for books and their attendant enlightenment is expressed In the fact that many a Kentucky mountaineer still believes the world Is flat and probably square, too. With all sincerity he will tell yon that the Bible says that angels stood on the four corners of the earth, as John commanded, when the Children of Israel fled from Egypt. 1)1 111, EM IN DEMAND. Among the greatest number of requests the "book lady" has received are those for Bibles and instructive literature.

Miss Coppin visited her parents late last year. She relumed to Miami and her position on the News shortly after Christmas.

Cabins built for years without windows now have them simply because some member of the family read, and be- i llcved, that fresh air and sunshine ; were good and wholesome, and j night air was not in the least ! harmful. OBJECTIONS ARE REGISTERED The "book lady," however, Is not I without her trials and tribulations. ! Recently she was met on a moun- Hc had a small daughter who had procured story books from the Pack-Horse Library but he wanted no more "sech (join's 0n." He said, "I cain't git my gal to do nothin' but read. My cornfield needs hoein'," and he declared angrily, "settin" in a corner with her nose in a book h'aint gonna git them weeds out!" The "book lady'" talked to the father patiently, explaining the value of good books, and he finally concluded the weeds were not so important, after all. All In all, the "book lady" takes on many aspects of an angel ln dis guise. She comforts the sick and aids the distressed as she goes on her way. Not long ago, she stopped at a home where nri member of the family had had school advantages higher than the third grade. The old grandmother of the family had a letter she had received three weeks before, which she had been unable to read. The letter was produced and the "book lady" read to the old woman about the birth of a greatgrandson on the "outside." When told the new baby had been named for her husband, long since dead, the old lady broke into tears. She happily accepted a supply of picture books to look at until a future call from the "book lady," when a fresh supply would be forthcoming. In one county, the mother of six small children became the "book lady" for her locality. She lives 18 miles from any settlement in a region where church service is held only once a month. There are no roads, travel must be accomplished up creek beds. The creeks are crossed by means of swinging bridges and foot logs. XV'hen this woman got bcr job, she managed to buy a mule for transportation. It got hurt, and when blood poisoning set in the mule died. Since that time the "book lady" has walked. She makes 18 miles to the county seat for a new supply of books once a week in the morning, and the Bame distance home again at night and with a heavy load each way. CONFERENCES ARE HELD. "Book ladies" hold regular conferences once a week at their centers. At that time they clip con tinued stories from old magazines which have been donated, and bind them into "books" for distribution. Picture "books'" are similarly made rrom advertisements or such other material as may come to hand -anything to satisfy the craving of these mountain folk. What is to become of the Pack-Horsc Library and such books as it may own when the Works Progress Administration no longer rosters it? A question simply an swered: Those actively in charge of the work foresee it as a nucleus for a public library in each of these remote communities, London, Ky., is the most centrally located point for the dissemination of books donated to the various Pack-Horse Library centers. Miss Ethel Perryman, Director of worn en's work for the Works Progress Administration In that area, is largely responsible for the success of the movement. She and her staff receive and classify all books and magazines before they are placed on the shelves of the various centers, thus insuring adequate distribution and avoiding duplications.
