Ph.D.
Have you a clear idea in your
mind of the various steps America
has taken, as a nation, during the

with the policies of the three
Presidents who were in office dur-
ing that time? The governmental
problems? The relations of the
United States in the Pacific, the
Caribbean and elsewhere?

In this book Prof. Ogg has given us information on every phase of national advancement, even as far back as 1900. $2.00.

THE APPEAL IS STILL URGENT

It comes with every letter from the boys in active service. They say woolen garments, sweaters, especially socks, are needed for health and comfort the year round.

Worsted Knitting Yarn of

Highest Quality

The Patriotic Yarn Association was organized to supply the women of this country with the best worsted knitting yarn in the market at the lowest possible cost, allowing only for the expense of distribution—with the understanding that they will make up garments for men in the service of the United States and her Allies.

We desire to reach the individual kniiter direct that she may be unrestricted in the disposition of her finished garment, provided only that she knit solely for the above-mentioned cause and give her written word of honor to that effect. We also gladly help out small organizations of recognized reputation working for patriotic purposes. Mail orders promptly filled. Virite for samples and prices.
