Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 31: August, 1928 Scout work, bee-hive girl programs, boyology, and other studies of the teens, - all make known that play is as important in the life of the boy and the girl, and not improbably in adult lives also, as is work itself - as important, perhaps, as prayer and divine worship. Religious people have always believed implicitly enough in the gospel of work; and this fact is greatly to their credit, since it Shows their discernment of the chief factor in the development of character. But they have rarely, perhaps, believed in the gospel of play. Programs of companionship between fathers and sons have opened to view the desirability, if not the necessity, of play, of recreation, of change, and of diversion, in the lives of men and women as well as in the life of the child. Play is, to Speak reverently, heaven's method of developing the young limbs and the immature powers of the child. Play is also the best means of relaxation from the strenuous and um ending toil that successful modern living entails. For the bow cannot always be bent, the spring not always stretched, the human system not always under extreme strain or tension.
