Patriotism and loyalty have their foundation in respect and confidence.
If our young people are to be intelligently loyal to our government, as every citizen should be, it is necessary for them to know what the government stands for ; what it is doing for its citizens.
The object of this volume is to set forth as simply and plainly as possible one phase of government service which is not often mentioned in newspapers-that of its assistance to navigation.
In discussing the subject, technical details have been avoided, but it is hoped that enough has been told to give a comprehensive idea of the subject. The author's purpose will have been accomplished if, as a result of reading this book, the boys and girls of our great land understand and more fully appreciate the government under which it is our privilege to live.
It is also hoped that the reading of this volume will lead to a desire to read more about ships and navigation and about the lands to which ships sail after departing from our shores. The public libraries of our country abound in books of travel and adventure which are as thrilling and interesting as any work of fiction, and also very instructive. The reading of such books gives one a fund of general information not obtainable in any other way.
Reports of the Lighthouse Service, Coast Guard, Coast and Geodetic Survey, Weather Bureau, and Department of Commerce have been freely consulted in the preparation of this volume. The illustrations were made from excellent photographs kindly furnished by these government bureaus.
We are also indebted, for valuable information, to "Lighthouses and Lightships of the :United States" by George R. Putnam, published by Houghton Mifflin Company.
