To the Editor:
—I have noted with interest several articles in recent issues of The Journal dealing with the general subject of occupations and training for the physically handicapped. It occurs to me that you may desire to be of some assistance to the Bureau of Vocational Guidance in a proposed survey of this field.In cooperation with several organizations of national importance, we are considering an investigation of training and possible industrial openings for crippled soldiers and others who are physically handicapped. Our work would probably culminate in a publication dealing with the methods of reeducation used both in the United States and abroad, an account of the general occupations open to each class of the handicapped, and an intensive study of actual opportunities in some one section of the country, probably New England and some of the neighboring states. Funds will probably be available for investigation and publication.
