Says US May Be Bit Too Strict KANSAS CITY (AP) - Americans may be too strict with young people and thereby add to juvenile delinquency, says a British expert on the subject. Britain puts only one-fifth as many juveniles in jail as the United States. Americans put drug addicts in jail. Britain doesn't, and has only 500 addicts. Those were the points made in an interview Monday by Leslie Wilkins, deputy director of research in the Home Office Research Unit in London. Wilkins is in the United States Governor To Give Decision CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. John W. King tells a joint session of the House and Senate today whether New Hampshire will become the first state in nearly 70 years to legalize a sweepstakes. The Democratic governor planned to appear before the Republican-dominated legislature to disclose whether he will sign a controversial sweepstakes bill, veto it or permit it to become law without his signature. Not since 1894, when the privately operated Louisiana lottery went out of business, has a sweepstakes or lottery been sanctioned by any state. Sweepstakes bills also are un- by legislatures and Vermont. Other states seeking ways to increase revenue are meeting pressure to legalize lotteries or extend race track betting. Supporters of the New Hampshire bill predicted that two sweepstakes a year, based on horse races at Rockingham Park just across the state Massachusetts, would yield $4 million annually for the state, earmarked for support of schools. Tickets would be sold for no more than $3 each at Rockingham Park and other tracks, and at state liquor stores in communities that approve. The measure provided that such ticket sales would be referred to the voters on the ballot every two years, as the sale of liquor is now. der consideration in Massachusetts or a year on a Ford Foundation fellowship and is serving on the President's Committee on Juvenile Delinquency. He is an advisor on youth programs in Boston Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. There is little difference between basic British and American law, he said, so the two societies must reflect the differences in enforcement. "I find the differences show up in the social Wilkins said. order in prisons," "Among those I have interviewed in American prisons I find the leaders to be those who have committed burglaries and robberies by force. "In ours, those who resort to guns or violence are looked down upon as 'yellow' or having failed the criminal code. The leaders in British prisons are those who open a safe by listening to the inner clicks, or the 'jelly boys' whose use nitro to blow them." Wilkins will lecture today at the University of Kansas on juvenile delinquency. Sentiment Can Change Quickly By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Business sentiment can change fast. And attempts to log the change in advance of an expected jump or drop in production and sales are many and varied. Some professional stock traders make a full-time job of it. A number of business publications poll leading corporate executives more or less regularly on their latest views. Government agencies conduct general and specialized surveys on intentions to spend for inventories, plant expansion, production, or sales efforts. Annual stockholders meetings, in full volume now, are a sounding board for expressions of confidence or lack of it in the particular company's or the general Two Ask US Intervention WASHINGTON (AP)-Two Re publican senators called today for U.S. intervention to stave off any Arab aggression against Israel in the explosive Middle East. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., proposed that the United States attempt to get Great Britain, France and other Western nations to join it in a collective defense agreement with Israel. Sen. Hugh Scott, R-pa., said this country should offer its good offices for direct peace negotiations between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nasser is attempting to weld the Arab nations into a United Arab Republic. Javits said in a prepared Senate speech that a threatened pro-Nasser takeover of Jordan, plus threats to Israel, indicates "time is running out on peace in t he Middle East." "To stop a mounting war threat economy s future, or in government policies. The change in business-government relations which many see in the administration's hands-off policy on the steel price increase this month could lead many businessmen to feel better about the future and act accordingly. Already most of the polls were showing a notable swelling of the ranks of the optimists. Many industrial executives have raised their sights for sales and production this year, for spending on inventory and on expansion. A number have voted to set aside increased funds for these activities. Others already have placed orders. The stock market a while back bet that business would be feeling better. It counted on both sales and profits being higher than many companies had forecast earlier and current reports show that in general this proved true. For one thing, many figured that labor-management disputes would be tough this year along a fairly recent line: job security vs. the need to cut costs through labor-saving devices. Prospects of work stoppages fire the urge to order materials as a hedge against production slowdowns, or to build up the company's own stock of finished products to keep its market supplied, or to buy ahead because price increases might follow labor settlements. Steel is an example right now. Some companies are building up steel stocks because they fear a strike late this summer. They want to go on producing their own goods and selling them. And a few are reported ordering more steel now because they fear price increases will spread, with or without any rise in steel wages as a result of wage contracts or a strike. Also, there is hope that Congress will cut taxes for corporations, giving them more money for expansion or for dividends or to pay off their debts. And many companies count on business improving if Congress cuts taxes for individuals and they have more money to spend after paying any increases in state and local taxes But confidence is a fragile thing. And business sentimen! could react quickly to a marked change for. the worst in interna tional or domestic affairs.

Police said Riley refused treatment at the accident scene and again at the station. A laboratory test showed his blood contained .19 of 1 per cent alcohol, officers said. Getz Magady, deputy coroner, said Sunday night the death apparently was from natural causes not connected with the accident. However, I he coroner's office reported Monday an autopsy showed death was caused by shock and hemorrhage resulting from a "crushing injury to the abdomen" Riley was arrested on charges of careless and drunken driving, and succumbed while waiting for someone to post bond for him, said John Kiester, a desk sergeant at the station now and foreclose also renewed' Communist mischief," he said, "the United States in concert with the United Kingdom, France and other interested nations should offer to join in a collective defense agreement with Israel and any other Middle East state willing to join and carry out its obligations for the preservation of peace and security in the Middle East. "The Soviet Union's support of Nasser goes far beyond even the huge masses of guns, tanks, planes, submarines and ships that it has poured into Egypt to reequip Nasser's armies. "Because the Kremlin knows Israel is committed to the free world by conviction as well as every other tie, it regards Israel as legitimate prey, and it will—as it has already—use every oppor tunity to stir up the Arabs and support their attacks on Israel." Scott called in an address to the Adas Israel Congregation Monday night for an end to the Kennedy administration's "even - handed" policy in dealing with Middle East nations. He said this should be supplanted by direct support of Israel.
