This unusual volume is, first, the pro­ceedings of an important national con­ference, but unlike ordinary proceedings the contributions to it have been selected for their importance to the literature. Second, the volume as a whole empha­sizes the importance of student work both to the student and to the insti­tution of higher learning. Third, the book’s publication marks an historic oc­casion. As a consequence of this first convention a national professional or­ganization has been formed to meet annually to communicate results of further research in this important area.

These contributions by distinguished educators will be of special value to per­sons who manage and direct student work programs, but they will be of in­terest also to administrators, business­men, labor leaders, and legislators.
