The special Commission on Health in Schools of the American Association of School Administrators offers in this year book much material that is a guide to standard practice. The preface indicates that the volume is not designed as a piece of propaganda in relationship to social action or extension of the Social Security Act. Health has long been a name of education. This book coordinates and standardizes procedures toward the realization of this aim. There are sections on individual health, mental hygiene, communicable disease, school environment, personnel and legislative problems. The various appendixes provide a mass of important bibliographic and other reference material. The year book concludes with a list of members and some excellent indexes.
