1733. [border around text] Racial Hygiene By Thurman B. Rice Buy it through Eugenics' Book Club At member-subscribers' rates "If we expect to better the human race, we cannot do it by locking up the laws of heredity and reproduction within the minds of scientists and in their textbooks. The principle lock to the door is the use of scientific terms which the layman does not understand, does not take the trouble to understand. I think that Dr. Rice has opened this lock, and his key has been the use of simple, understandable phraseology. It seems to me that this is one of the best eugenics books which I have ever seen, and I heartily recommend it to all." --Leon F.
