Memoirs of a Month-Old Father by Donald Milner
Father's place in a young baby's life has traditionally been underestimated. Donald Milner, who recently accompanied Dr. Fuchs's expedition to the Antarctic as a BBC reporter, describes his reactions to his month-old son.

Boy Meets Girl
Mrs. Rose Hacker, author of 'Telling the Teenager'
Mrs. Hilary Halpin, Chairman, L.C.C. Children's Committee
Graham Don, West Ham Juvenile Court magistrate
Harry Ree, Headmaster, Watford Grammar School
