John D. Rockefeller, Jr., foreman of
the special grand Jury nppolnted to in
vestigate tho hideous trafllc two years
ago, is n member of the permanent
bureau which was formed at that
time. ' He hns been a big factor per
sonally nnd financially in advancing
the work of the bureau.
Mr. Rockefeller has Issued the fol
lowing interesting statement as to tho
origin, work and plans of the organ
ization: The bureau of social hygiene came
Into existence about two years ago as
a result of the work of tho special
grand Jury appointed to investigate
the white slave trafllc in New York
city, which served during tho first half
of the year 1010. Ono of tho recom
mendations made by it in the present
ment handed up at tho termination of
its labors was thnt a public commis
sion be nppolnted to study the social
evil. The foremnn of that body sub
sequently 'gave careful consideration
to tho character of the work which
might properly bo done by such a
commission and the limitations under
which it would operate. In this con
nection separate personal conferences
were held with over a hundred lead
ing men nnd women in the city, among
whom were lawyers, physicians, busi
ness men, bank presidents, presidents
of commercial organizations, clergy
men,. settlement workers, social work
ers, labor leaders and reformers.

WAR ON TREE KILLING BEETLE
Secretary of Agriculture Reports Cam
paign In Oregon.
Tho secretary of ngriculture an
nounces that investigations conducted
in 1007 and 1010 to determine the con
ditions on nn nrea of more than 1,000,
000 acres in northeastern Oregon show
ed that the killing of a largo number of
trees by the mountain pine beetle had
been going on in this area since 1005.
It was estimated that 35 per cent of
tho lodgepolo pine on about 1,000,000
acres and 50 per cent of tho matured
lodgepolo on 800,000 acres of the same
nrea had been killed, or n total of over
S.000,000 trees. It was also estimated
that 140,000 yellow pine had been killed
by this beetle and that tho invasion
was moving south and southeast Into
the more valuable areas of yellow pine.

labor under a number of dlsadvan
tages, such ns the fact that it would
bo short lived; that its work would bo
done publicly; that at best it could
hardly do more thnn present recom
mendations. Tho conviction nlsogrew
that the main reason why more per
manent results had not been obtained
by the vnrious organizations which
had dealt with the subject of tho so
cial evil during tho past ten or fifteen
years was that most of them wero
temporary. While active, they mate
rially improved tho situation, but as
their efforts wore relaxed there camo
tho inevitable return to much the
same conditions as before. The forces
of evil are never greatly alarmed at
the organization of investigating or re
form bodies, for they know that they
are generally composed of busy people
who cannot turn nsido from their own
affairs for any length of time to carry
on reforms nnd thnt sooner or later
their efforts will cease, and tho patient
denizens of the underworld and their
exploiters can then reappear and con
tinue tho trnfllc as formerly.
So tho conviction grew that iu or
der to mnke a real and lasting im
provement in conditions a permanent
organization should bo created tho
continuance of which would not be de
pendent upon a temporary wave of re
form nor upon tho life of nny man w
group of men, but which would go on,
generation after generation, continu
ously making warfare against tho
forces of evil. It also appeared that
11 private organization would have,
among other advantages, a certain
freedom from publicity nnd from po
litical bins which a publicly appointed
commission could not so easily avoid.
Found Bureau In 1911.
Therefore ns tho initial step in the
winter of 1911 the bureau of social hy
giene was formed. Its present mem
bers nro Miss Katharine Beinent Da
vis, superintendent of the New York
state reformatory for women at Bed
ford Hills, New York; Paul M. War
burg of tho firm of Kuhu, Loeb & Co.;
Ktnrr J. Murphy of the New York bar
and .Tohu D. Rockefeller, Jr. As the
Work develops now members may be
One of the first things undertaken by
(ho bureau was tho establishment ut
Bedford Hills, adjacent to the reforma
tory, of a laboratory of social hygiene
under Miss Davis direction. In this
laboratory it is proposed to study from
the physical, mental, social and moral
side each person committed to tho re
formatory. This study will bo carried
on by experts, and each case will bo
kept under observation for from three
weeks to three months, ns may bo re
quired. When tho diagnosis Is com
pleted It is hoped that tho laboratory
will be In position to recommend tho
treatment most likely to reform the
Individual or, If reformation is impos
sible, to recommend permanent cus
todial enre. Furthermore, reaching
out beyond tho Individuals Involved, It
is believed thnt thus important contri
butions may be made to a fuller knowl
edge of the conditions ultimately re
sponsible for vice. If this experiment
is successful the principle may prove
applicable to all classes of criminals
and tho conditions precedent to crime
nnd load to lines of action not only
more scientific and humane, but also
less wasteful than those at present fol
lowed. Study Evils Abroad.
In entering upon Its labors the bu
reau rogardpd it of fundamental im
portance to mnke a careful study of
the social evil in this country and in
Europe, feeling that this problem, llko
luy other great and difficult one, can
be Intelligently approached only by
means of a thorough nnd complete
knowledge of nil tho factors Involved,
as well bb all tho methods and experi
ences of other cities and countries in
dcnling with it. Arrangements were
made, therefore, in tho early part of
last winter to secure tho services of
George .1. Kneelnnd, who had directed
the Chlcngo vice commission investi
gation. Since that time Mr. Kneelnnd,
with a corps of assistants, has been
making a thorough nnd comprehensive
survey of the conditions of vice In
New York city. This survey hns cov
ered not o'nly houses of prostitution,
Raines law hotels, disorderly saloons,
enfes and restaurants, massago par
lors nnd other places whero vicious
peoplo congregate, but also the per
sonal histories of some 2,000 prosti
tutes, nnd a study of nil tho case rec
ords for one year of a great majority
of the hospitals and dispensaries in
New York city, with a view to ascer
taining tho prevalence of venereal dis
eases and tlieir ratio to nil other dis
eases. Mr. Kneelnnd's report is now
in progress of preparation nnd will bo
published within the next two months.
Abraham Flexner Enlisted.
At the same tlmo the bureau was
fortunate In securing the services of
Abraham Flexner, whoso reports on
the medical schools in this country
nnd in Europe are so well known, to
study tho social evil and the various
methods of dealing with it in the lead
ing cities of Europe. Mr. Flexner
spent tho greater part of a year
nbroad, making n senrching nnd ex
haustive Inquiry Into tho subject, nnd
is now working on his report, which
will be ready for publication this win
ter. These studies nro to be followed by
others iu those cities in tho United
States where different conditions ex
ist or where special methods of deal
ing with tho social evil have been in
troduced, the .object being to become
familiar with all phases of the subject
nnd all methods of handling it which
have boon tried iu this country nnd in
Based upon nil of these studies,
which will probably be published by
December of this year, it is tho hopo
of tho bureau that there may be de
vised a practical plan for dealing with
tho social evil In New York city a
plan which public opinion can bo
brought to support.
In conclusion, it cannot bo too strong
ly emphasized that the spirit which
dominates tho work of the bureau is
not sensational or sentimental or hys
terical; that it is not a spirit of crit
icism of public officials, but that it
Is essentially a spirit of constructive
suggestion and of deep scientific as
well ns humane interest in a great

tool it will cut steel at tho rate of 200

would ordinarily burn. Certain modi
