Abstract: The youth of today are raised in a strange and wonderful world. The threat of atomic war and the destruction of the entire world is no longer science fiction. All this is mixed with the knowledge of outerspace, rockets to the moon, electric ranges, automatic television, and home intercoms. The modern pace is rapid, and the pressures are great, with no indication of improvement. From the day of his conception, the child of today is expected to be precocious, and to go on to a great and glorious career in medicine, law, or nuclear physics. All this takes intensive training of the mind. However, it is now being increasingly realized that this also indicates an increased emphasis on the physical development of our youth.
