The Social Service report for the year 1911-12 is made very significant, not only by the fact that a greater number of men have carried on Social Service work with a higher degree of efficiency than in any other previous year, but also by the fact that Harvard is considerably in advance of other colleges in the efficiency and scope of its Social Service work. Cornell has only five men engaged in Boys' Club work, but this small number is sufficient to cope with the needs of a small town like Ithaca. One hundred men take part in settlement work at Pennsylvania. Princeton has ninety men in social service work and this number seems sufficient for the town of Princeton. Yale has three hundred and fifty social workers including men doing Sunday School work. Harvard has 360 regular workers, not including men doing work outside of social service. Last year the total number of workers was 292 and the number of failures was 18. This year 348 men did satisfactory work while only 12 failed.
There is printed below a list of the Harvard men who have done social service work regularly once a week during the past year, with the idea that, when presented in this form, the extent and significance of this work will be more adequately appreciated. It may be said that the men whose names appear have had, with few exceptions, weekly engagements throughout the year.
