The problem of successful welfare administration is one of not only helping people out of trouble but one of keeping people out of trouble. Perhaps one of the most difficult puzzles of public administration in the United States is that centering around departments, bureaus, and boards of public welfare. In this field accurate information and dependable direction are eagerly sought by old and new officials alike. Legislative bodies, social and civic agencies are earnestly seeking for information and examples which will secure the most efficient administration methods. This is true not only because of the hazards involved in the problems of public welfare, but also because of the large amount of public money which of late has been spent in this field of endeavor.
