"Intelligence in the Modern World" is the title of John Dewey's book on philosophy. One quotation is used as the dedication "Let us admit the case of the conservative; f we once start thinking no one can guarantee where we shall come out, except that many objects, ends and institutions are doomed. Every thinker puts some portion of an apparently stable world in peril and no one can wholly predict what will emerge in its place." Science plays a large part in life today. An interesting book for a number of people is "Consumer Science, a Fusion Course in Physical Science Applied to Consumer Problems" by Hausrath and John H. Harms. "Bacteria, Yeasts and Molds in the Home" by H. W. Conn is the third revised edition of a standard work.

"Chemical Gardening for the Amateur" by Charles Connors and Victor A. Tiedjens is for those who are interested in the new hobby of gardening without soil. The many calls for poems by Edgar A. Guest has led to the purchase of his "Collected Verse." A valuable book for the library staff is Louis Shores "Basic Reference Books." Patrons may find it helpful to consult this as an introduction to the use of certain reference books. John Dale Russell's "Vocational Education" was published by the Government Printing Office for the Advisory Committee on Education. This gives an excellent summary of what has been done in the field and suggests definite plans for the future. J.
