A cooperative program is reported which makes available to the school a series of group discussions on boy‐girl relations, sexual physiology, venereal disease, and contraception. Girls attending these sessions, if they so desire, may attend the University Hospital Teen Clinic for physical examination and contraceptive supplies. One hundred and seventy students attended groups, of whom 74 attended teen clinics, and 61 became contraceptors. A second city high school has been added to the program. Staff believes that as young women learn that pregnancy is their choice, they will move into responsible relationships with ability to handle adequately planned motherhood.
