The status of the primary group, predisposition (intelligence and character) and the view of life and world and the logics of the prostitute and non-prostitute Inmate in Women's Rehabilitations Home in Japan after World War II are studied. 2. On the primary group it is found that its status is more or less similar to that of Geishagirl and “Waitress” rather thau “legal” prostitutes in prewar Japan. 3. Intelligence of the Inmates in these Home on the average is more or less lower than the average intelligence grade of Japenese women of the same age groups. Also the intelligence is lower in the prostitute groups than in non prostitute groups. 4. The proportion of the persons with abnormal character is greater in these Inmates than in the average Japanese women but no difference between these two Inmate-groups is found. 5. The logics and the view of life and world of these women are not consistent and this tendency is stronger in the home, where the christian discipline is adopted. 6. The results of these researches indicate the necessity of psychiatric examination of personality (including the grade of intelligence of Inmates) at the time of their entrance to Homes.
