This work, after, a fifteen years' r--oin, ana lest unaer Mr. Lee's, direc tion,, has come to have a national character. . It is open for the use of all citizens and it is available for every city, town and community in America. Twenty years ago 'Joseph Lee. made an intensive study of the cause of juvenile delinquency- and its resultant so-called "crime wave" in various ocalities a study covering a lifetime.

These were the neighbor hood organizations and the organized ilay grounds conducted by the San rancisco Community Service Recrea ;ion League.
