OftcftitortAlly th« king h*« come to Rome whan an official rare- tlon has (Sailed him and thl* yeaf also came In July to review the war veterans in Juljf, when they held their annual convention. / By THOMAS ft.' MOHGAM, Staff Correspondent. ROME, Nov. 6.—Italy Has recently faced, with a series dt legislative provisions, the problem of Juvenile crlrnl- nality which had begun to assume dis^ quieting proportions Mere. Italian sociologists, university professors and followers of the liombrosb tradition have written largely on the subject, and It has been generally recognized that the steadily Increasing criminality of the-juvenile classes depends on the precocious character of the general education unconscldusly absorbed by the children and youths of today. A recent order of Minister of Justice Alfredo Rocco instituted the first juvenile correctlonary courts in this country. The ministers' order institutes throughout Italy a^pecial magistra- tufa to deal with offenders under the ago of 18. The magistrates selected to preside over the tribunals for juvenile offenders are to be chosen with especial care by the ministry of justice from among the regular body of penal magistrates. The importance of the measure Just introduced consists In the fact that the Italian law for the first time recognizes the juvenile offender as being In quite a distinct category from the criminal of full age. The sittings are to be taken behind closed doors, and the reports of the cases will not be allowed to be published in the press without special sanction of the magistrate hearing the case. The parents or guardians of the youthful offenders will be requested to attend the trial and to give evidence if required. The national philanthropic Institution known as the Maternity and Children's Welfare association is to be asked to send one of its officials to the court when a Juvenile offender is being tried. .The magistrate will seek the cooperation of the official, whose duty it will be to inquire into and report on the antecedents of the accused, his upbringing and surroundings.
