To the social worker this study has a great deal of significance. No previous literature brings out so clearly the interrelated activities of case-working agencies nor gives so calm an analysis of the results of their coöperative effort.

The study itself deals with cases referred or transferred from one agency to another and the results obtained by such action. The cases of 421 families were studied according to the following plan: first, what kind of problem was invloved ? second, what was done by the first agency in touch with the family? third, what action was taken by the receiving agency? and fourth, with what results? More than one half of the cases were received by the Society for Organizing Charity from other agencies; 79 by the Society to Protect Children from Cruelty; 72 by the Children's Bureau, and the remainder by other social agencies.

The cases studied were not the typical ones handled by a particular agency, but the difficult, intricate cases each involving several problems. For these reasons they were referred by one society to another. Among the general criticisms made by the investigators are the following. Most of the agencies had no definite plan of investigation and the amount of investigation depended primarily on the agency's conception of its function and not on the needs of the case; the least intensive investigations were made by hospital social service departments and the most exhaustive ones by the Society for Organizing Charity; often the agency with which a case originated did not even learn the nature of the problem involved ; frequently two different agencies made simultaneous investigations, and much confusion, duplication and uncertainty of responsibility resulted; specialized agencies were, on the whole, less definite and clear in their treatment of cases than family agencies; more than one third of the cases were unwisely referred from one society to another and frequently the second was not properly prepared to

sas.

treat them; finally, the agencies neglected to consult each other sufficiently or to give each other the full advantage of information obtained.

Part II is a presentation of the analysis of twenty-five typical cases by a special committee. Each case is discussed separately and the opinion of the committee given as to what would have constituted the proper method of procedure. These cases strongly emphasize the findings embodied in the main division of the report.
