Storyline

This series entry has five feature stories. In Mountainair, New Mexico, juniper trees grow in large numbers. 'Pop' Schaeffer prunes the trees on his property and sculpts the oddly shaped branches into fanciful animals. In Augusta, Illinois, a lady makes fake tails (called "switches") for show horses. Edwin Knapp's factory in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, which manufactures horse-drawn carriages, fell on hard times when the automobile was introduced; but these days he gets so many orders that he has trouble filling them. The next stop is Belém, Brazil, where hammocks are made with machines that use no electricity. The last stop is a training base for the Canadian Women's Army Corps (CWAC), in St. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, Canada. CWAC members receive the same training as men, but will not see combat. Rather, they will fill positions now held by men, so the men can be sent into the field. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>
