The Echoettes from Lombard 1 Junior High School under the direction of John Harstick, accompanied by Rosalyn Eck, presented several vocal numbers prior to the speech by Judge Mathers'for the Father's night meeting held at the school. Janet Johnson, Phyllis Law and Rose Marie Beckham, Girl Scouts from Troop 19, lead the group in the pledge of allegiance to the flag. "Children's Problems in the First Six Grades" was the topic discussed by Judge Mathers, who was introduced by John Meldrum. Crimes in this age group include malicious mischief, petty thievery, unwanton destruction and constant lying. Judge Mathers spoke of the difficulty of this age group making restitution due to their youth and economic status of most of their parents. Parents could check carefully on children's after school activities, TV programs, movies, friends and magazines. Statistics show that 75 per cent of these crimes arc committed by children above the first six grades; 90 per cent are done by boys; about 75 per cent come from broken homes; 5 or 6 per cent from homes that arc so unfit they are worse than broken. He said the causes behind these acts are multiple and overlapping unsettled homes, bad company, lack of obvious affection, desire for social approval by friends, nagging by parents, referred ideas and truancy are contributing factors. To remedy this situation parents must be conscious of the problem and act. j Elimination of drinking in and out of the home is a very serious! problem and one which is very hard to control. It leads to broken homes, loss of financial security to child and parents. Outside control is very hard to exercise in this realm, concluded Judge Mathers. Question Period Held A questioning period brought out that children who are regular attendants of our standard churches seldom are in these crimes. This docs not include those who at tended when very young and then dropped out or the sects who use religion as an emotional outlet. Also it was stated that to make a child feel ridiculous in his com rades eyes is a serious mistake. The P.T.A. can carry much in fluence by writing TV stations, movie managers and magazine editors and demanding a good type of entertainment. Business Meeting A business meeting then followed with Mrs. Marguerite Johnson's second grade winning the attendance record. Mrs. Wilbur Roos gave the treasurer's report, j Mrs. Jack Stewart gave the carnival report. A get-acquainted game, under the direction of the hospitality committee, was then played.
