These differed according to the geographic lo- cation of the college and other factors, such as its nature, size, and staff. The work centered on reduc- tion of prejudice, improving teacher-leader training, and community education and planning. The proc- esses described here and the experiences offered sug- gest analogies to intergroup problems elsewhere and keys to possible action. The basic problem, however, is much more difficult than may at first be imagined, for it revolves about the whole American value sys- tem and most significantly of all about its teachers. Do Americans still dream of a day when all people will be treated as people--when the terms of personal worth, fair play, good will, and co-operation will have great value because they will be viewed as the essentials of decent living? Let us hope that they do. This is the aim of intergroup education. KENNETH V. LOTTIcK "Keep Your Head Up, Mr. Putnam!" By PETER PUTNAM. New York: Harper & Bros., 1952. Pp. xi+ 171. $2.50. The writer presents an interesting account of the adjustment of a blind person to the process of learn- ing how to use a "Seeing Eye" dog. The basic prin- ciples of any learning experience--consistent disci- pline, repetition, and progression in difficulty of both content and skill--are well exemplified. Of particular interest to social workers is the process of identifica- tion which takes place between the man and his guide, as a consciously nurtured development.

Agencies interested in developing and improving foster-home care in their communities will be espe- cially interested in this brief pamphlet, which sketches out a plan for group meetings of foster- parents. Such meetings are designed to help foster- parents exchange ideas on common problems and to help the community appreciate the contributions made by foster-parents. Because there is so little material of this type, this pamphlet should meet a real need. SUSANNE SCHULZE OTHER BOOKS RECEIVED BAUMGARDT, DAVID.
