The problem of organizing human labor resources has suddenly emerged, like so many other social and economic problems, from the realm of the academic into that of the immediate and practical, largely under the stimulus of war necessity. Through the selective draft act, the Federal employment plan, and specialized training under the War Department, no less than through the vocational rehabilitation and vocational education laws, the United States has undertaken, as never before, to control the distribution of human service. In a sense this task that "the Nation has been engaged in, that of training, enlisting, and selecting workers for the Army for the essential industries, and for agriculture, is a gigantic experiment in vocational guidance. Appended are: (1) Typical Job Analyses from the Richmond and Minneapolis Vocational Education Survey; and (2) Public High Schools Reporting Vocation Bureaus or Similar Departments. A bibliography and index are included. (Contains 4 tables)
