becoming a permanent way of life grows each year The league includes these sta tistics in what it says is the first comprehensive study of Ameri can youngsters in foster care THE FIELD FOUNDATION fi nanced the study Dr Henry S Maas professor of social wel fare at the University of Cal ifornia at Berkeley and two ra search teams spent a year talk ing to social workers interview ing judges visiting courts and examining laws affecting chil dren The study covered the case histories of 4281 children in limbo in nine contrasting communities from coast to coast One was a homogenous white Protestant town another a city torn by differences in race and religion one community was rural another a bustling city of one million The researchers found that only two of every 10 foster chil dren are adoptable in the eyes of the law Only a fifth of these are adopted or returned to their parents And if the youngster lives away fromhis parents for more than 18 months the separ Had warned Rhee Ike
