The woinrii requested In establishing such schools for pivdelin- iiuent children that they bo established under control of local board of education, to combat juvenile delinquency. This is excellent reasoning and keeps educational controls at the local level. The women also recommended that a child be assigned to the state school only with the approval of a community board and by the child's local school. This will prevent teachers or parents from "passing off problem children to the state without justification."

Father Flanagan says, "Our teen age boy problem is nothing else but a problem of unloved, unsupervised homes; and in many cases a problem where the child lives for the most of his waking hours on the streets with nothing to do. Hoys who are unloved and unprotected are not likely to love others and protect the rights of others. Devoid of proper training of mind and heart, his thoughts and actions are most like the Instinct used by the foraging predatory animal."

He also added, "Even in the face of wartime restrictions and curtailments, our press has risen to new heights of service. In a world that is on the march, it has kept us alerted to trends and realisms. On its pages will be found explanation of the tremendous determination and application of the people, and on those same pages will always be found encouragement for a central community effort and assumption of civilian responsibility." "With these thoughts in mind, I, Karl Warren, governor of California, take this occasion to commend the daily and weekly newspapers of California for the mnay and splendid public services performed during the months our nation has been at war, and do hereby urge that further public, recognition be given the truism that 'without a free press, there can be no democracy'."
