Supervised recreation .can do more than any other activity outside the home, the, school and the church, to prevent juvenile delinquency than any other thing which might be undertaken. -Just talking about causes of delinquency and possible cures will not get" the job' done. . . '••'" ^Blytheyille apparently does not have a/serious juvenile delinquency problem, triit There is no reason to believe that it will not have. And supervised play, sjiJch as the Blytheville Y is sponsoring, can go a long way to prevent a wave of delinquency among juveniles. ;! It cau do more than that. It can provide wholesome recreation for chil- . dren of various agens and tie in effec- tiA'cly with home training and the character Building programs of tho t'chools and the churches. 1' Some 300 contributors have provided about §0,000 of the $10,000 nced- ed.i There are still^some- in Ely theville ••'• who could qualify among the group of larger contributors. There are many who can, and should, join the ranks of • those who have contributed smaller sums. .•'.'. '..'•: \\ A contribution in any amount will be welcomed by the "Y", and those who contribute will have an opportun- ' iiy to share that satisfaction which comes from community co-operation which builds character. No Loss of Faith - On the day after Mr. Justice Jackson-teed off on Mr. Justice Black, by re*. mote control from Germany, one of Washington's many columnists came forth with a mouir.ful piece. His thesis was that the American people, for the first time in our history, had lost faith ill the honor, integrity and general ini- pccciibility of tha Supreme Court of the United States. Wo are inclined to question the validity of this assumption, us well as the accuracy of a public opinion poll, covering more than 150 years, which this columnist obviously hits conducted from the depths of his .swivel chair. We might say, with equal confidence and accuracy, that the American people were diverted for a nay or two by the Supremo Court set-to, 'anil' then prompt|y forgot it. After all, if a lapse of judicial decorum is •'vciiso'n, 1'or loss of faith, then Americans should have given up on the country's highest court M2 years ago. For, in 1804, Associate Justice Samuel Chase was impeached for misconduct in a trial involving the Sedition Law. And tho people have had the opportunity to lose faith in other of our governmental institutions. The Republic was only eight years old when a senator was impeached. There have also been ini]>cachincnls of a President, u Secretary of War, and nine federal judges. Yet somehow the nation has managed to ..retain considerable confidence in' the office of President, in the Congress, the Cabinet, and the judicial branch of the government. . •/ Much has been made of the fact that seven of the present Supreme Court justices were appointed by the late President Roosevelt. The trouble has been traced back to the "court- packing" attempt of 1937. But why should seven met) of the same political party, picked. for a certain political like-inindedness, be less compatible than a court whose appointments stretch over several administrations, and which shows a more even political division? Perhaps the trouble is that the" seven political bedfellows are more politicians than jurists. Or it may be that the American-people were just shocked to find Supreme Court justices giving way to human emotions. Few of ii[j could have been pleased by the pub lib .ajring of the Jackson'•' Bfhck aniftYd.sily and the rumor of other Court 'feuds.- But all this is no rcflec- • tion on the r Court ns an institution, nor is it a 'Complete condemnation of -• thtf men who make up the court. . The manners: of the brcthern may not have been of the best, but at least there is a noble tradition to teach them how they should behave. Doubtless they will heed it and get back into line. Tile Jackson-Black imbroglio shocked Washington, but that hotbed of gossip and rumor is scarcely a typical American city. Perhaps our columnist has lived there so long that he has forgotten this.
