8 Thursdoy, August 31, 1944 Sakerrffdb California!* between SHARING /^SHEARS M> MAK A move has recently been instituted in the California Legislature to obtain iM-hour schools for boys and girls. Senator J. K. Dorsey proposes that in the postwar period that army post buildings that will be abandoned be used for such schools that should be maintained for unruly boys and girls or orphan!!. The subject of 24-hour schools to be maintained by the state brings up the question of where the responsibility of parents ends and that of the state begins. The continuing rise in juvenile delinquency points to the failure of the home, the breakdown in religious training, and the lark of sulticient time in the ordinary school to compensate for the needed training in self-discipline that many youths are missing. For years, families of secure finances have often sent adolescent boys and girls to hoarding schools and tn military academics for training that the parents realized that they had'nl or couldn't give their children. Such training was deemed "an advantage." Twenty- four hour schools may be an "advantage," also for boys and girls whose families cannot afford the costlier institutions but who would benefit from being under stricter and more objective discipline than that which parents can give. Most parents desire the best for the children and are willing to make adjustments when they realize that they are failing or Unit their chili! or children need different associates and environment. SAtXDERS | It is less costly for the state to help in defraying the cost of such education and change in environment that to allow the pre- delinquent, to become the delinquent child and then to become the adult criminal. The only alternative is for society to be more realistic in its attitude toward parents that permit children to continue to offend In the matter of petty thefts and unsocial behovior, and for the juvenile courts to take a stern attitude toward such misdemeanors. A policewoman recently maintained that parents are often indifferent to I lie calls made to the borne by her and have even aided and abetted the child in concealing stolen gtiods or making excuses for repeated offense. Probably a combination of the two more logical attitudes is necessary to curb juvenile delinquency, due to take action against parents when they are indifferent to juvenile court warnings and two to place children in IM-bour schools when it is obvious that the home is unsuitable or completely uncooperative in helping children to form better character trait and habits.

Oil Well Gun Perforating Explained at Lions Meet Oil well mm perforating was explained to Lions Cluli members at it noun meeting of the organization yesterday at Hotel id Tejon by Don Hall, of the McCulloilch Oil Tool Company. ' Introduced by Lions President Thomas Cox, the speaker explained that the gun perforator has enabled drillers to get oil from the stratus at shallow levels which were overlooked before the development of j the tool in !!»:::! when it was the i practice to drill only to known pro- j ducing horizons. As lug); as 400 grains of slow burning powder, which will withstand momentarily up to o(HI degrees fahrenheit, can be used. The gun. which is lowered into the well, by a cable in which is enclosed a copper core, is fired electrically, the speaker explained. Methods have been devised whereby as any as (>0 holes can be made at a time. Thus it requires from 00 to 72 hours for a job of 3000 holes at 5000 feet. By making perforations fn oil and gas areas it is possible to produce a flowing well in which the gas forces the oil up to the surface of the ground, the speaker said.
