AVAILABLE U.S.D.A. PUBLICATIONS ON VEGETABLJIS
To assist in procuring a ready reference library on vegetables, we have
developed a list of U, S. D. A. publications we believe would be valuable for such
a purpose. You may find also that a number of these publications would be valuable
for limited distribution, We would suggest that where revised editions are
available that they be secured to replace the older publications now in your files,
The following information on methods of securing publications may be of value
to new agents:
(1) Publications can be had in quantities by Extension workers if
application has cleared through the State Publication-Distribution
Officer (J. Francis Cooper). Clearance is not required if 50 or
fewer publications are ordered. Send letter not requiring clearance
to: Federal Extension Service, U. S. Department of Agriculture,
Washington 25, D. C.
(2) Send order and remittance for publications listed For Sale Only to
the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office,
Washington 25, D. C. Remittance must accompany order in the form of
check or money order made payable to the Superintendent of Documents.
Hoping this information will be of value to you, I remain
