lor said that it was his belief that
children phould be taken from their
parents only as a last resort, and that
the eociety should make every effort
to improve the conditions of the home

this line, for he believes that the home
is proper place for the child, and that
even if it is not all it should be, it
may still be better for the child than
an institution. A child needs the
home ties, and it should be the soci

making the home right for the child
