References: In the articles throughout this volume will be found frequent references to related titles for further reading or study. For example, the article on the "Good Luck Family" has this notation: "See Legume, Clover, Shamrock." The articles thus referred to will either be found in the present volume, as indicated in the Table of Contents, or in "The New Student's Reference Work," a descriptive announcement of which appears in the back of this book. These references have been made owing to the wide distribution of the "Student's," the ease with which reliable information can be secured in its pages and the fact that it has a place in the libraries of most of those who own "The How and Why Library."
