Speaking of the Printed Word
DO YOU know that the American public is now reading to the tune of more than 22,000 publications, of which 15,000 are newspapers and the other 7,000 magazine and technical journals—not mentioning the thousands ot books that are being issued almost as fast as the presses can turn them out? Think of it!
- Most of this mass of printed matter is extremely helpful and enlightening, if not indispensable, and a lot of it is nothing more than time-wasting duplication, rehash and trash. Yet behind it all is a healthy thirst for knowledge that is making us a nation of thinkers.
- When it comes to the subject of fire protection you don’t have to go all over the map to keep fully and reliably informed. Just read FIRE ENGINEERING and you have the whole story.
