What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

To a large meas - ure this, of l . 0111141', has been done al - ready . and will be done even to a great• er extent in the future. 'tie, however, an unfortunate fact that much of what the department has done and is doing is totally unknown to many of those who would benefit the most by it. In these letters there are, for instants', ntany suggestions that a bulletin he written on one aubject or another which has been already eovered by department publicatimis. Many of the writers are, of course, familiar with these publica- tions, but they express the belief that their neighbors, as a rule. are not. With such an enormous field to cover, progress in the distribution of this in - formation must. of course, appear very slow. It cannot help, however. but hi . greatly facilitated by the enthusiasm vvith which these wotnen await it. From thin point of view the letters contained in those bullteins are full of encourage' mt•nt and st • his. As a step toward familiarizing the people with what the Government has already stone, the bulletins contain, in addition to the letters, references in footnotes to existing publications deal - ing with the various subjects discussed and appendix with (gasified lists ' of all Government literature in this wide field.
