ONLY THREE MORE DAYS
OF BOOK CAMPAIGN
Great Demand Among Soldiers
for Good Books at the
Service Library.
Ther am three davs left of
the "War Service Library" week, and
Miss Margaret Dunlap, of the Chat
tanooga publlo library, who has been
instrumental In setting the library
established at the fort, makes a most
earnest appeal to the public to con
tribute good books, for the Boldlcrff.
"Just any old thing" is not wanted,
hut the neonla are reai"Rted to make
a sacrifice of some good book, which
they have enjoyed and whose senu-
mnnt. like the scent or tne roses.
'Viln 'rnunil them still." and let it
nisi companion to those boys who
are leaving home and mentis.
Books are about the only compan
ions that can take the place of friends,
and M!s Dunlao declares that if
neonla could see how eagerly the sol
iiier hova take to them, and realize
hat the circulation is as large as inai
n tie cnauanooKa ruonc norary
300 or more books being in circula
tion dally they would reopond readily
n parting with some froorl dook rrom
their library shelves. A record of the
book's that are In demand by the sol
diers has been kept at several of the
cantonments, and the indication is for
modern languages, astronomy, engl
neerlng, geography, electricity, strat
erv. rjhvsics and above nil the great
eat demands In poetry is for Kipling
and Shakespeare. Oiie small set or
Shakeaneare's works has been donated
and a few volumes of Kipling's.
If one cannot visit these soldiers in
person they can send a friend In the
way of a book. Any or tne inunnry
men will tnke the books for the houHe
keener, to the Chattanooga publlo li
brary. The publlo Is reminded by the
promoters that this Is not a call for
money, hut for friend in the way of
books, for Uncle nam s oovs.

enco department of the Chattanooga
publlo library, has made a very beau
tiful poster calling attention to the
