This is the tlrst time that a number
of social agencies have got together

work and preventing overlapping and i
duplication. The objects of the league
are, first, to promote and to carry on
constructive and preventive social j
work for improving the social and |
economic conditions of the race in nr
ban centers; second, to bring about co !
ordination and co-operation among ex
isting agencies in urban centers; third,
to develop other agencies where neces {
sary; fourth, to secure and train mem I
bers of the race for social work and
to make such studies in cities ns may I
be required.

[ the committee’s work, which will lie
j continued under the National league,
is the work done in tic* department of
social science at Fisk university. This
work has been conducted with great
success by Professor <Jeorge E.
