Here is a second copy. A Help Yourself Booklet offered to GM Men and Women by General Motors Information Rack Service. I find it amazing that I did not come across this book for twenty years and then found it twice within a month! Thirteen fables are given each one page in this pamphlet measuring about 6.5 x 5. Illustrations on each page are done in three colors: red, pink, and black. Some of the morals are surprisingly long and complex, like those for CP (The brisk exercise of resourcefulness results in the solving of many difficult problems) and for BC (Don't embark upon any plan which has not been thoroughly thought out from beginning to end. Many things are easier said than done). ML has only two stages: neighbors and ourselves. DW is well told and raises questions with its moral, which I guess is fitting for General Motors: Those who would enjoy the good things in life must expect to pay for them. This statement as a moral for this fable is not exactly a ringing endorsement of freedom!
