Showing Youth That .Crime Doesn't Pay YOU should see a policeman in uniform neglecting his beat in order to help a bunch of boys stage an informal baseball game, on a vacant lot, you probably would wonder irritably just what that copper thought the city was paying him for. , •„ On second thought, however, you might feel differently. For if a cop's chief job is to prevent crime, the officer who - teaches the youngsters in his district to look up to him as a friend and counsellor is doing a very efficient and praiseworthy job of crime prevention. J. Edgar Hoover, chief G-man, touched on this point the olher day in a vspeech before the annual convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, at Baltimore. , said Mr. Hoover, that a $100,000 bank robbery ;1D 'occurs in a given city. Every youngster in town is. to a certain degree, stirred by the excitement and the adventure pf the affair. In a great many cases he will conclude that the •'robbery has done a brave and romantic thing and is a person to be emulated. In other words, he makes a hero of him. But if the police have means of contact with the city's youth — through police athletic associations, police play off icers, police instructors and umpires for sandlot athletic contests, and so on — then the police have a fine chance to make youth see the robber, not as a hero but as a sap. "You simply cannot 'combat in the literal mind of youth the fact that someone got $100,000," said Mr. Hoover. "He *can listen to platitudes forever, but the thought remains in vhis'mind — a man robbed a bank and a man got $100,000 and j Certainly in this instance crime must have been made to pay. "•'And so our job as the guardians of youth is to say why and Junv that $100,000 is worthless. ->"] "The boy must be made to understand that the money -t*ean be spent for no sensible purpose. He must be shown that /this sum will be split among dozens of persons whom the robber must pay for aiding his escape. ,>, "He can be convinced that every cent of this money for '•\yhich a man has dared his life and the penitentiary must •either be expended for things which do him not one particle of 'good or be paid out in a desperate effort to defeat the law, i'leaving him in the end penniless, a broken being living in a ^flithy, worm-eaten, rocking house of crime and robbed of \esyerything worth-while which > a life of decency might have >given him." *, * * * , THAT, as Mr. Hoover says, is a job well worth doing. It is a K',1 job the police can do easily enough, if they have the contacts with youth that enable them to get their message across. •.; Such contacts, obtained through a systematic campaign of "Jfust drive," Jill told the bewildered cab driver, adding as she turned to the young man, "there's a string of hotels around this section—on Park Avenue, on Lexington." "I'm not looking for a hotel, but a more permanent place to park." The driver concentrated on going nowhere, dashing recklessly in and out of traffic in a manner that left no doubt that the age of miracles had not passed. Besides maneuvering expertly, he was ruminating about a queer world. Plain goofy, these young people. * * * J ILL was also thinking about a queer world. Queer and wonderful. Here she was sitting in a taxi with a young man whose image she had carried with her for thousands of miles. An engrossed and very handsome young man. "I am wondering why a brass band didn't meet you," the young man spoke, suddenly. Jill smiled, "f don't like brass bands. But I do like families. It's really my fault that nobody met me. I think I wrote that I'd be saying hello to Lady Liberty when our ship went by her, if I didn't change my mind. And then I didn't cable to tell them whether I had changed my mind or not. You wouldn't call that being very definite, would you?" "Not very. It's nice that you have a family at home waiting to welcome you." Jill thought there was a rather wistful sound to his voice. She spoke impulsively. "Yes. But of course we're not the regular kind of family. You see my father is only my stepfather. He had loved my mother before she married first time. And after her husband—(my father) father to Jack—my brother—and to me, too. And to Barry, also. Alt of us took the Wentworth name." "Who is Barry?" "I suppose he's a sort of step- step brother. You see, after mother died, dad married aguin. Another widow, with a son—Barry—who is just n little younger than Jack. We're rather mixed up, aren't we? Now about you?" * * * «T CAME over on the same ship. Tourist," the young man replied simply, "It's much cheaper. After a summer of travel, there wasn't much left. But I had been j cooped up so long, I had to move about, if I starved aftenvard." "Cooped up?" "In a studio in Paris. And before that—" They Spread the Gloom Out of Buckets "Tom Sawyer" , died, then He's been dad married exactly like mother, real Jill prompted. Sorbonne, the "Before that?" "Oxford, the Beaux Arts." "Oh!" There was a world of respect in Jill's exclamation. "There were some places I'd always wanted to paint. So I went oft" and painted them. I had a practical purpose back of it all, of course." If Miss Benedict were here now, Jill thought, I'd strangle her. She had prevented her meeting the young artist abroad. "And now," the young man concluded, "I'm here." His voice carried. "You want cut here, sir?" the driver called back. "Just as well here as anywhere," the young man replied. "Drop me off at the next corner by that subway entrance." At the next corner! Why, that meant he was dropping out of her life. That meant she would never know where this amazing young man would stay. And she wanted to know!

Speleology Is that branch of geology devoted to the exploration of cnves. No claustrophobes need npply, for the movie caves constructed at David Solz- nick's studio seem almost as forbidding and heavily opressive as (he real thing, especially when fall breezes blow dust over everything and voices echo hollowly under the big black canopy that covers the labyrinth. At first it wns planned to film the sequences in the original cnve near Hannibal, Mo., but it turned out to look like an oversized gopher hole iml was by no means picturesque enough. The outer locale WHS disappointing, too, what with so many signboards and telephone wires. So the studio improved on Mark Twain, as it has had to do several times with the story itself because of his flair for understatement. Understatement is fine for stories but gets you nowhere ut all in the visual arts. So photographers were sent to 'the Carlsbad Caverns for photographic .lata on a really picturesque cave. Some of the scenes were reproduced on the Selznick lot, even to the stalac- ties and stalagmites. All this lent itself to a nice piece of symbolism, for the picture is being done in Technicolor. When the hupy picnic party is shown pain and suffering for our precious ones. Say to yourself, 'Few cases of illness are fatal,' and stop jumping at conclusions. Must Face Facts "As for suffering, there has to be a certain philosophy about this. You must learn not to go to pieces when a child is ill or hurt. Every child with few exceptions must experience a share of it. Some more than others, we must admit, but this alone should make us thankful if your own children are more fortunate. "Prevention is the best cure, but when that fails, as it often will, then why not accept the inevitable with hope and cheerfulness? There is a strange sympathetic tic between mother and child, and I know thta a mother's fears transmit themselves to the sick one. To be matter-of-fact and sensible is best. Learn to face whatever comes. Wash your mind of black visions." "I can't," she sighed. "I can't do it." All mothers feel that they can't. But they have not tried. They can change their friendship and understanding could be invaluable in the « \ great work of crime-prevention. The average criminal starts out as a juvenile cop-hater. • ; Jf that trend can be reversed, a great step in law-enforcement Coan be taken. Nothing grips emotional sympathy as much as the illness of a child. The smaller he is, the greater the tug at our hearts. It always has been that way, and probably always will be. Mothers get so nervous and apprehensive about even .minor upsets, hqw.- . ever, ^ that they are likely to borrow trouble withoct reason..

The author knows her atate, its people and history, as few others can boast. A native of Gettysburg, the author has the complete story of those three days, one of the great battles of the world, at her finger tips. The carnage ;md destruction as told in the book, including Baby Frank's escape from a cannon ball, will open the eyes of j young readers to the meaning of war, the price paid for our Union. Berry's character and her discovery that one can be happy in a real world rather than one of the wishful thinking, will be good for growing girls. E. Nesbit has written another book.

If the doctor says, "I am sorry, Mrs. Smith, but this looks like measles," Mrs. ^SJ Smith feels that the world has ceased to turn. And these are the things that wear mothers out unnecessarily. Worry Is Wearing ? In her mind, the worrying type of woman magnifies her bridges a thousand times. After all the years have passed and her children are still alive and well, she finds herself in broken health with as many lines caused by needless worry as if she had actually lost her clear ones. In imagination she h.as lost them over and over. ., ,. Talking to a mother recently about her hysterical fears, and the harm to herself, she asked what was to be done. "You can't change the mother heart," she said. "No, but you can change the mother mind," I suggested. -; By a miracle," she commented, "No. By facing facts instead of trying to build up a wall against them.

But so is Huck Finn (Jackie Moran), who's even studying Latin. When Tom and Huck finished their gruveynrd scene the one with the dcnd cat for curing warts, they begged the stuffed cat from the prop department and sent it over to Carole Lombard, who was working on the next stage in "Nothing Sacred." Well-Iteeled Leonard Penn, Metro actor, appeared on the "Four Marys" set the other day wearing a diamond-studded wiitch, a chain with a diamond in each link, and carrying n cigaret case with his initials in diamond*. All these were gifts from his wife, Gladys George. Asked if he were afraid of being held up, Penn said no and opened his make-up box. There among the powder puffs and brushes and rouge pots nestled a revolver. He also keeps a revolver in his car. Penn has been deputized and acts as his wife's bodyguard, which accounts for the artillery. Neither gun is diamond-studded. Costly Error!) "Tovarich," the Claudette Colbert- Charles Boyer picture, has cost well over $1,500,000 to date and still is going strong. One reason it's going strong is that costly retakes arc being made to correct minor flaws. In one scene, filmed a couple of months ago, Miss Colbert entered a kitchen wearing a ?2200 gown and carrying a beautiful red coat. Director Litvak okayed the shots, but Miss Colbert, when she saw the rushes, insisted on retakes. She decided that instead of carrying the coat she must wear it. This one whim required an expenditure of at least $5000. During the retake the other day, as Miss Colbert swept into the room, one of the players exclaimed, "What a beautiful gown!
