Excerpt from Socializing for the New Order: Or Educational Values of the Juvenile Organization, Including a R sum of Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, and Twelve Other Organizations From several years of experience as a superintendent of high school and grades, the writer of this little volume has come to the conclusion that our public schools at present are not in a position to touch the youth at every angle of his being, and, unaided by other educational organizations than the church, to develop in him the maximum degree of personality, and enhance to the su premest degree a wholesome exercise of those instinctive traits which, when sublimated, make up character. From observation of results attending most efficient work done by juvenile organizations, and from experience in super vising Daily Vacation Bible School work in Chicago, the writer inclines to the opinion that the character of edu cation which the youth derives from the highest type of juvenile organization is such as to serve as an able sup plement to the work of school and church. The refer ence to church here, of course, implies only that portion of the church which makes no employment of the type of child and youth orders most widely endorsed by modern educators.
