' portant part Experienced social
worker! recommend that such work
be done through organization rather
than, by individuals, working as
ingle units. Marie Leff-Caldwell
of the South Side Social Settlement
in her illuminating, and practical
story, "Taking Mother Into Camp,"
contained in the March issue ot i.it
Woman's Home Companion, says
on this point:
"All Americanization work should
be done through an organization,
such as a woman's club, parent
teacher association, civic club, or
settlement house. The individual
worker who starts off independently
will encounter two difficulties: dupli
cation of work, such as othes visi
: tors calling in the same houses, or
the physical impossibility of cover
ing the territory she has selected. It
is very easy to rouse Jealousy by
visiting in some homes ot a selected
neighborhood and neglecting others.
'"When an organization decides -to
start a campaign of friendly visiting,
the particular neighborhood or com
munity selected for the work must
, be carefully divided among the num
ber of visitors, paid volunteer. No
one visitor should be given charge
of more than twenty farmlies. In
tenement districts, one large flat
house is sufficient territory for one
worker. In smaller cities or com
munities, one square block is found
most satisfactory. After a period
of six months or more, the visitor
can bring together all , the families
living in her flat house or on hei
blck as a unit, and she will surely
find something which they enjoy in
"Good judgmenfcmust be shown in
selecting the first visitors from the
mass of volunteers who are always
eager to assist in a new social move
ment. A few mistakes by willing
but tactless or unsympathetic visi

work for months. ' ,
'To succeed, the friendly visitor
must have an open mind, because she
