A NEW BOOK BY
Today the social worker pins his faith chiefly on preventative work with children. Miss Addams' new book, THE SPIRIT OF YOUTH AND THE CITY STREETS, was announced as a discussion of "the great problem -- how to keep the boys and girls off the streets." To it she brings all the experience and training of her long years as headworker of Hull House, Chicago, and in many good causes for which Hull House has been the mustering ground.
The few who have been fortunate enough to read the first copies of the book the past fortnight have found in it much more than a statement of present-day problems and sane suggestions for their solution; for into her discussion of the lure of the street for the city girl, Miss Addams has thrown so [fine] an appreciation of girlhood itself, so clear an insight into unformed girlish hopes and fears and clamorous need for play, that one leaves it more in accord than ever with that writer in The London Times who held Jane Addams "easily the foremost woman in America," "one of the greatest influences affecting American life."
