The sales of the Ritchie New World
Health Series—the giant among
health textbooks—continue to in-
crease. A stack of books, represent-
ing the actual sales last year, would
tower twice as high as the loftiest peak
of the Himalayas.
Today the Ritchie Series, consisting of
PRIMER OF HYGIENE, PRIMER OF SAN-
ITATION, PRIMER OF PHYSIOLOGY, and
HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY, enjoys a larger
and wider use than any other series
on this subject.
The unusual success of the Ritchie
physiologies is the natural result of
their careful preparation. That their
use is still increasing is testimony to
the excellent choice of schools that
have adopted them.

HE SUMMER SESSION, attended

last summer by nearly two thousand students, offers an ever-widening opportunity for teachers who wish to capitalize their summer vacations.

HE DIVISION OF EXTRAMU

RAL INSTRUCTION is literally an attempt to push the walls of the University to the farthest limits of the Pittsburgh district, with its four million population. It brings its facilities to the side of educators in their own communities for single lectures, extension courses, school surveys, teachers' institutes, or consultation on administrative, financial, and building problems.

ligious Education, Vocational Education, Physical Education, and Americanization serve the interests of large groups in the twenty-six counties of Western Pennsylvania. The environment of a great industrial metropolis offers a laboratory for practical teaching experience.
