THE BREAD WINNERS AND HOME
MAKERS OF OUR REPUBLIC
Of our multitude of pupils only a small number enter high school, yet those who terminate their school career thus early become bread winners and home makers, and constitute a large proportion of our citizens. These young people leave school almost totally ignorant of sources of supply and processes of manufacture of our most common commodities. A knowledge of the world's great industries would give them additional power in solving the problems of life, and also make them more useful citizens.
ROCHELEAU’S "Geography of Commerce and Industry has been prepared to meet the needs of all such pupils and those who enter high school. It recognizes the dearth of reference works on many of the subjects treated and has given the leading industries such treatment as to make each chapter a unit.
