Abstract

Comments on J. McCord's (see record 1979-09057-001) field test of a delinquency prevention program, which produced a pattern of long-term negative side effects. There is an important source of experimental contamination that was not ruled out, namely, differential S attrition. Five of the negative comparisons resulted from responses to a questionnaire.
