“Dr. Winfield S. Hall of the Northwestern University Medical School recently gave a talk to our high school boys along physiological lines, setting forth very scientifically but plainly many delicate and important truths which every boy should know. Dr. Hall is a master of his subject and his manner is so dignified and yet sympathetic that he commands respect and holds the closest attention. I feel sure that such a talk given to boys and young men does a great amount of good.” –H. S. Magill, Jr., Principal, .International Committee, Young Men's Christian Association, Chicago, Ill., October 4, 1908 “You have touched a vital subject in a most original way that impresses every boy that hears you. You lead up to your ‘Secret of Manhood’ in a manner that holds the attention, impresses the truth you want to teach, so that it is sure to be of lasting good. This lecture I regard as the very best of its kind, which I have ever heard.” -W.H. Olin, Vice Dean, State Agricultural College of Colorado “In your lecture on ‘The Young Man's Problem’ and in your book on ‘Sexual Hygiene’ you are doing a great service for the rising generation. I am convinced that one great source of vice is ignorance about the matters touched upon in your lecture and book. Priests are constantly giving instruction on these same points, but it is a distinct advantage to have their teaching reinforced by a distinguished physician, expressing himself with the plainness of the laity and speaking always in a most reverential spirit. For students seventeen years of age or more your presentation of this difficult subject will be a God-send, for it abates curiosity, dissipates ignorance, warns of perils and arouses a manly desire for a clean life.” -John Cavanaugh, C. S. C., President, Central Department, Young Men's Christian Association, Chicago, October 21, 1908. CONTENTS. Chapter I. REPRODUCTION FROM THE STANDPOINT OF BIOLOGY. 1.
