affections--it seems to be of the head alone. But when such persons are 

brought to their realization that Eugenics is also a movement to promote 

the bearing of children--to enable each mated couple to bring forth 

perfect offspring--then the heart is enlisted as a co-worker with the 

head. 

 

The sociological phase of Eugenics--the phase of Race Culture in 

general--is being vigorously advanced by societies and organizations in 

various parts of the world, the parent organization being the Eugenics 

Education Society, of London, England. Dr. C. W. Saleeby, one of those 

prominent in the work of the said Society, has the following to say 

concerning the work of that organization: 

 

"The Eugenics Education Society exists to uphold the ideal of Parenthood 

as the highest and most responsible of human powers; to proclaim that 

the racial instinct is therefore supremely sacred, and its exercise 

through marriage, for the service of the future, the loftiest of all 

privileges. It stands for a transfigured sentiment of parenthood which 

regards with solicitude not child and grandchild only, but the 

generations to come hereafter--fathers of the future creating and 

providing for the remote children. That which too many schools of 

thought and practice have derided or defiled, it seeks to elevate and 

ennoble. Parenthood on the part of the diseased, the insane, the 

alcoholic--where these conditions promise to be transmitted--must be 

denounced as a crime against the future. In these directions the Society 

stands for active legislation, and for the formation of that public 

opinion which legislation, if it is to be effective, must express. 

Parenthood on the part of the worthy must be buttressed, guided, and 

extolled. The Society stands for the education of the young regarding 

the responsibility and holiness of the racial function of parenthood." 

 

The Eugenists hold that in the near future our children, looking back 

upon the present and the past state of indifference and neglect 

concerning the important subject of bearing and rearing of children, 

will experience the same horror that we now feel when we look back upon 

the indifference to the horrors of human slavery, imprisonment for debt, 

cruelty toward prisoners, treatment of the insane, executions for 

trivial offences, etc., on the part of our ancestors. Our descendants 

will deem it almost inconceivable that we, their ancestors, could have 

been so blind and criminally negligent. 

 

But, as leading Eugenists have pointed out, the new science does not 

confine its attention to the subject of preventive measures, important
