American Library Association Instruction Books - A section of students and instructors in the Divisional School, St. Nazaire, France. This school was operated almost entirely on books supplied by the A.L.A. and its officers stated that it would have been impossible to have conducted the school without the A.L.A. books. The books ordered by the Y.M.C.A. for this work for the army never arrived. The school originally had 500 students and 80 instructors, but the number grew less as men went home with their outfits
