Are you acquainted with the Twentieth Century Child? Can you describe his physical, mental and social characteristics and promises? Can you foretell the future in terms of the present? Ellen Key has said that this is a century of the child. A Boston physician doing research work and child welfare says that there is no neglected age of childhood any more, altho he does admit that our interest in the pre-school child is greater than our knowledge of what ought to be done. Have we done all that we can for childhood? Are the above statements actually true? Are you willing to place Uncle Sam's child beside the children of other countries? Is our splendid commonwealth spending the right proportion of wealth in conserving childhood?
