Dviclu and Luren Ba«al WE, THE WOMEN The Columbia, Mo,, city council •ui ordered the police force of that ollege town enlarged as a result of recent rape-slaying of a 13-year!d baby sitter. •'.'•• An enlarged police force may Ive young baby sitters a little more roiectlon, but It seem* to me we ave a problem before us now that rie police, alone, In any town or Ity cant solve. When young parents hire girls •ho are little more than children, heinselves, to baby-sit, aJid when he mothers and fathers of young Iris permit them to take such Jobs t ntght, there are going to be some ragedies. Somehow, many parents have the dea that any child who is old nough ot give a baby a bottle Is ild enough to be lelt alone In a louse with a baby or even aeveral mail children. This Is a foolish notion. In view f the terrible sex crimes that are appenlng all over the country, both n cities nnd In rural areas. It's Responsibility of Parent* The best way to protect these 'oimg eirls from what happened o the little 13-year-old girl in Missouri Is for all the parents concerned to stop this whole business if-too-young baby sitters. How young is too young? It seems o me a couple shouldn't ask a girl under 18 to take 'over their respon- Ibllitles at night. And parents houldn't permit daughters under .8 to do night-time baby sitting. Unless we use common sense and itart following some such policy as that, we are just asking for trouble. Certainly, we need better police protection In most places. But we iced better parental protection, oo. .•'.'. Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, ill., April 13.
