Phone 1233 THE FUR SHOP 16 E. Withlngten St. Judge George D. Hicks Addresses Halfway P. T. A. Judge George D. Hicks spoke to a representative group at the Halfway Parent-Teacher meeting on Tuesday night on the alarming growth and strength of organized crime and the price which decent citizens have to pay for protection, prisons and various other intsitu- tions. He pointed out that the number of men and women engaged, in crime is larger than the personnel of both the Army and Navy. Crime is the largest business in the T/nit- ed States today. * . Juvenile delinquency is also increasing, Judge Hiclis said, but It is not the fault o£ the child. Inheritance; environment and emotion .are the leading factors of waywardness and most of the delinquents are victims of circumstances beyond their control. Opportunity classes have done a great deal to prevent truancy and such childish pranks which often de- velope into more serious breaches of rules. Judge Hicks advocated the establishment of an opportunity class at Halfway. At the business meeting which Merit badges have been selected by the troops of Washington county who will exhibit them on Feb. 9, 10, and 11 at the State Armory during the Scout-O-Rama of the Washington County Council, Boy Scouts of America. A varied and interesting group of subjects have been selected and the troops will start this week gathering' material and Ideas for their booths. Howard Johnston, Wilson Sperow and Clyde Kale composed the committee for selection of badges. There will be in all, 19 subjects and each booth will be standard in size, 10 feet square and 8 feet high.

It is th work of Scouts in each of these booths that will appeal to the public. Not only will there be fine displays but also Scouts will be actually working at the badges and the resourcefulness and Ingenuity ot the boys will be shown to Its best advantage. The merit badge program of Scouting is one of vocational guidance and Is under the direction of the Advancement Committee of the Washington County Council of which John D. Hollyday is chair- an. "Seeing is believing," and the Scout-O-Rama will bear out that statement. It will be a visual education in boys' work for the people in Washington county who see it. The Scout principle of learning by doing will be demonstrated. Scouts who have had experience in the merit badge subjects to 'be displayed will be In the booths and there they will explain to the public the subject which they are interested in. • Committees in charge of Arena Display Activity, and Merit Badge Participation met with Alfred S. Bendell, Jr., Scout Executive, in order to correlate the three phases of the Scout-O-Rama program.

When the Clare Tree Major Com pany from New York brings 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" here today ono of the actors who will be most warmly welcomed is George Thornton, the cading dwarf. George is a middle aged man, but he is only as tall as an ordinary eight-year-old. He has appeared many times with the Clare Tree Major Company, and is look ing forward to meeting again the many children who have greetec him in former roles. Some of them have been writing him regularly for years. Whether he plays in circus, in movies, in vaudeville or with the Clare Tree Major com panies, the children love him a\ much as he loves to play to them If the theatre doesn't happen to be employing dwarfs some season ; George doesn't starve. He just goes farming. He loves chickens. He has a way with them. They don't mind his lack of height any more than the children do. When the company happens along through the vicinity of such places as the experimenta 1 farms of Cornell University, the actors keep sharp eye on George. If they don't, they are likely to liavu to hunt him up at the chicken farm before they can set up for the performance. A new cure for croup, or a new way of feeding for egg production, wil hold George enthralled for hours. His happiest moments, however, are on stage, with the children rocking with laughter at his antics, or shaking hands with him after the show, crowding around him begging for his autograph, hiding him from view until one of the other actors reaches down and literally drags him away from his admirers. Then ho does as the other actors do—he begins to carry out, for packing, the stage effects that have gone into the making ot the play "Snow White and tho Seven Dwarfs," and which must be taken on to the next town for the following day's performance. George is strong—and would try to carry out.the whole set of scenery if Ihe stage manager didn't watch him and allot him taslcs suitable to his height. "Snow White and tho Seven Dwarfs" will bo presented at 10:15 a. in. and at 2:15 p. m. . today. Both performances will bo at the Colonial Theatre. A reception wll(< be given by the leading dwarf for the children on the stage following tho play this afternoon.
