In the physical education work of the public schools the accomplishment of character and moral development through this subject is accepted but unproven. Through three years of teaching and extensive reading in the theory and practice of this field the writer is very much aware of this condition. The accomplishment of the health betterment through physical education activities is universally accepted, but the achievement of character betterment, although universally mentioned by educators, is not generally proven as an actual occurrence.
Since the former is achieved through careful planning the latter likewise necessitates definite method. The method may be based upon the generalization of the character traits called upon in the specific physical education situation. Upon that basis this thesis has indicated the methods to be used so that these traits may also be placed in action in general lite situations.
