THIS 1'APISn MADK IN TI1R U. H. A. I UNRULY GUESTS N nil civilised countries alien visitors or residents arc yiven Ihe same protection as citizens though they may not enjoy all the native privileges, They arc treated as guests of Ihe nation and if they do not like Ihe people or Hie country the door hy which they entered is open for thorn to deport. Should they disturb the peace of the nation that shelters them it is a protective measure to eject them. Japan applies this lo its own islands, bill when it decides lo have ils elti- xens live in China or Chinese lerritory il demands from China righls thai belong lo the natives of that country. Japan, hfi« investments and commercial interests in China. II is admittedly vital Hint Tokio should find an ontlcl for ils increasing population and for expanding Irade lo meet its domeslic needs. So do other nations. But it hits not yet become an eslablishcd in- 'crnalional doctrine that the invited or uninvited guest should dictate lo his hosl. This is what Japan is doing in China. By word and act the Chinese people have said they do not want Japanese emigrants and would prefer thai they do not establish colonial enterprises there, lint China is weak in military and naval forces while the gucsl is strong in hoth and insists in remain- sea captains, ing and even tells the Chinese government what il should do. Some Japi.ine.se suhjects have been killed in China; so also have many Chinese been slain by Japanese. But Tokio demands Ihe government of China lo force belter treatment for Ihe intruder, and having the power il lands forces in Shanghai to see this is done. Yv'hal Japan really wanls is an excuse to exploit China, and with all Ihe other world powers engaged in their own troubles il (tikes this opportunity to do its will. CAUSES OF GUI MIS M UCH concern has been frequently expressed over Ihe fad that the ages of the. modern felon range from 17 to 2-1 years, und more particularly thai the present 0000 inmates of California prisons are under 2-1 years old. It is obvious from these fads that youlh and young manhood are dangerous periods for criminal tendencies, and Ihe conclusion is that there must he reasons for this relationship between ago and crime. Out of these figures anil conditions, criminologists at a meeting of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, held in Kansas City, a composite picture of Ihe typical American criminal of today was constructed, as follows: A lazy, vain, moderately educated city youlh whose parents have separated; shielding his lii/.iiu-ss and an inferiority complex behind a false, bravado that loads him into crime; motivated hy a desire to impress "Ihe girl friend' with a flashy appearance of wealth. From Ibis conception of Ihe "lypicnl" criminal il will be seen Ilitil the menial conditioning of youlh bus its ell'ecl on morals. And il will also be observed that Ihe young criminal is a victim of his early circumstances. Broken homes, Ihe report says, conlribnle. Ihe bull; of new recruits to Iho. i criminal list. This in turn ptisses much of the responsibility to the parents, and gives force lo the argument that home training eliminates the tendency lo crime. Vanity and laziness have always been the source of trouble. For centuries thinkers have preached against their dangers. In an age when wealth i» worshipped, and its semblance easy to accomplish, it is easy for young persons to fall into this snare, and only through tho guidance of wise parents or guardians can U icy lie taught and trained lo believe that honest poverty is preferable lo ill gotten gain or prelenlious imitation of riches. No one would wish Ilial young people .should suffer loo long the clVc.ds of Irtlmla- rccords of all atlainmcnls In worthy lives is thul they should learn thut only Ihrough diligence, honesty and slralgh I forwardness can they achieve success. Long ago it was written: "Train up a child in Ihe way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from il." This is an injunction to parents, and if applied will do much lo eliminate a large: part of the criminal tendencies of youlh. (JKICAT SEA CAPTAIN DIES UMIBAL WILLIAM SOWDKN SIMS, died on Tuesday at Ihe age of 77 years, was not a "yes" man. On the contrary he was an expert critic In naval affairs who expressed his views with clarity und firmness on what he considered ils defccls. When Theodore Booscvell was president Sims defied conventional - amiabilities by writing lo him thai gunnery was weak in Ihe navy. As naval ships arc intended lo be fighting fortresses at sea, and as President Theodore, HooNCvell was a devotee of his own practical idealism, be ordered 'the young naval officer lo lake charge of gunnery practice. The. result was that Sims raised the efficiency in Ibis necessary department of naval skill within a year and a half.
