kHomemakers Get Help in Solving What*to*Serve Problem Find Reading Public Wants Books on War Chicago, (U.R)--People do not read books simply for recreation now, according to the American Library association; they are demanding more books in ··war information. Librarians find the reading pub- ·· lie wants books describing the foreign countries where service men are stationed, books that deal in technical information and business and rationing regulations. Housewives seek books that give advice on adjusting their households to wartime living conditions. The victory book campaign, sponsored by the library association in co-operation with the USO and American Red Cross, has collected and will distribute more than 15,000,000 books to soldiers and sailors overseas. : When servicemen are demobil- -ized after the^war, and industria ', workers return to normal peace-time living, the library association believes that adult education wU assume growing importance. : It cites the many educationa I/ opportunities now offered in th army and navy, which should b ontinued when the veterans re- urn to civilian life. Veterans of the 18-25 age groups vho joined the armed services in- tead of going to college, will need books to readjust themselves to new or different civilian jobs. American libraries recently have een opening in Latin-American countries of Mexico, Brazil and Nicaragua. These libraries are :inanced largely by the United States government, and administered by the American Library association. At least $150,000 worth of books nave been distributed as gifts to the Latin-American libraries, and the association hopes to get special funds for the restocking of research libraries in devastated war areas. --o-Ruth Finger Bride of Carl F.
