8vo. 21 by 14 cm. 16 pp., plus wraps. An attempt to replicate religious Sunday school for the atheistic Socialist families. Full of idealistic Socialist pronouncements. Curious is the inclusion of eugenics in its suggested program. The brochure speaks of counteracting the "insidious effects of the 'Boy Scout' organisation" with "Peace Crusaders". With a two page "List of Publications". Also of note is the suggested reading list for children based on their age. At 16 or 17, for example, it is proposed they tackle "The Jungle", "Looking Backward", etc., to be followed with a course that includes Marx, Ruskin, Tolstoy, Henry George, Edward Carpenter, etc. Scarce. According to OCLC held in book form only at Wisconsin and Edinburgh and a few other libraries in microfiche. Soiled cover, and some soil spots within. Flattened fold down vertical center.
