British Social Hygiene Council : Summer School in Austria

    Article metrics


    OWING to various difficulties connected with foreign travel, the Summer School on "The Family and the Nation", which the British Social Hygiene Council had arranged to hold at the University, Berne, Switzerland, during August 17-September 1, has now been transferred to Pertisau in the Austrian Tyrol. There will be no change in the lecture programme, which will deal with different aspects of family life, such as marriage problems, nutrition, human heredity, population, the welfare of old people, the problem family, and juvenile delinquency. As in the past, only the first week will be devoted to study, the second week being entirely free for rest and recreation and for excursions to places of beauty and interest in the surrounding countryside. The cost, including travel, hotel accommodation and tuition, will be approximately £34. Further information can be obtained from the Secretary, British Social Hygiene Council, Tavistock House North, Tavistock Square, London, W.C.I.
