The subjects for this investigation consisted of fifty-

type frequently associated with girls in a training school,
such as, truancy, unmanageability at home and school, petty-
stealing and sex offenses. The subjects were chosen at random

placing the name of each girl on a card and dropping it in a
box. Prom the box were drawn the names of the fifty subjects
used, forty-five of whom were white and the remaining five,
Mexican, The age of this group ranged from thirteen to nine-
teen with a mean age of sixteen. By far the largest age group,
64 per cent, was younger and 10 per cent older.

fifty subjects under the usual standardizes conditions. Scores
