greatly alarmed at the organization
of investigating or reform bodies, for
they know that they are generally
composed of busv people, who can
not turn aside from their own affairs
for any great length of time to carry
or. reforms, and that soon cr later
their efforts will cease, and the pa
"F tlent denizens of the underworld and
their exploiters can then reappear and
continue the traffic as formerly
"So the conviction grew that in or

among other advantages, a certain

"Therefore, as the initial step, in j
I the winter of 1911 the bureau of so- I

New York bar; and John D. Rockefel

members will be added.
"One of the first things undertaken
by the bureau was the establishment
at Bedford Hills, adjacent to the re
formatory, of a laboratory of social
hygene. under Miss Davis' direction
In this laboratory it is proposed to
study from the physical, mental, so
