Proceedings of the Conference of the American Country Life Association, Inc., Toward Excellence in Community Living in the Countryside (45th, Maryland University, July 12-13, 1966).
American Country Life Association, Sioux Falls, SD.
In an attempt to reveal the many external influences (e.g., economic, social, and spiritual) affecting a rural community and to bring about understanding of the evolving complex society of the rural-urban community brought about by advanced technology, the American Country Life Association's annual conference dealt with some of the parameters involved in community living in the countryside. Discussions were held on all phases of community life and relations, health, education, spiritual well-being, local government; leadership, and the world view.
