The 1942 Dewey h is expanded many numbers, notably 770 (photography);
355 (army); anTdZ .]3 (aeronautics). The editors have aimed to be fore-
sighted enough not te have to add new numbers for some time to come. In
f:-ct, to our earth-cl ained minds, they appear to have taken qui ne a leap
into the future rith their astronautical number: 629.1388 (interplanetary,
interstellar flight) ,
The 1942 High school catalog also indicaLes changes in its policy of
classification.? The outtanoin' one is the use of 810 for American litera-
ture which had formerly been put with English literature in 820. Some
therer changes from the 1937 catalog are:
342.73 Constitution (Formerly 353)

The arrangement now corresponds to that of the Childrei's catalog,
