"Their problem differs from that of childrer and youth in that a large percentage of adults require leisure activities appropriate for one who returns from a dayjs work possibly more or less exhausted from labor. The factor o economy also constitutes a problem related to the adults' program leisure time activities. He requires a program suited to the circumstances o£ his daily life, and at the sam timo that provides him with opportunities for progressive self-development.
