A GROUP OF TOURISTS AT THE FOOT OF THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT, WAITING FOR THE ELEVATOR If one desires further information about Washington as the seat of government, an excellent book on the subject is"The American Govern ment," by Frederic J. Haskin. This book is also used as the basis for a valuable educational motion-picture subject, called "Uncle Sam atWork," and produced by Col. Henry W. Savage. Every pulsing artery of our great government's activitiesisfaithfully produced, from the formal opening of the United States Senate by the Vice-President to the testing of the strength of a human hair bythe experts of the Bureau ofStand ards. This clean-cut, carefully thought-out production, which opens new doors of understanding at every turn, will beof value and interest to every American, young and old, in school and out, and is warranted to make us prouder than ever of our country and torealize the magnitude of our public projects.
