Dr. Evelyn Duvall, secretary of the
National Conference on Family Rela-
tions, listed as methods of countering
the increase in marriage failures re-
search on causes of social break-
downs, improvement in social stand-
ards, marriage counseling, and edu-
cation for marriage. Mrs. Duvall gave
special praise to the effort of edu-
cational institutions to prepare young
people for mariage. She pointed out
that 550 colleges in this country now
give "marriage and family" courses
of some sort, and that many schools
have set up facilities for personal
counseling of students.

ference elected at yesterday's meet-

Dr. Allen Discusses
Struggle in China
If the Chinese Communists and
the Chiang Kai-Shek Nationalists
should have a show-down fight with
neither side receiving any outside
aid, the Communists would un-
doubtedly come out on top, Dr. Stew-
art Allen said last night in a talk at
Robert Owen Co-op House.
Dr. Allen, who spent seventeen
years in China as a medical mission-
ary and as investigator for the Ca-
nadian Red Cross explained that al-
though the National Government
under Chiang had in some ways re-
lieved the plight of the peasants, the
Communists had instituted such
striking reforms in North China that
they would easily have the support
of this group, unless the National-
ists should carry out similar reforms.
