Statement of the Problem. The problem of this dissertation is to identify some characteristics related to the reputed practice of vicarious sacrifice by certain ninth grade youth. The author made this study in close cooperation with and in the framework of the Union College Character Research Project, Schenectady, New York, which states: By definition, "vicarious" means "performed or suffered by one person with results accruing to the benefit or advantage of another"..."Sacrifice" means "to make sacred... a giving up of some desirable thing in behalf of a higher object." The giving up" sometimes includes suffering which means "to endure or undergo without sinking, to sustain, to bear up under."1 In this study, a characteristic related to the practice of vicarious sacrifice is considered to be that distinctive trait, quality, or property which exists when vicarious sacrifice is practiced.
