Crime Gets Bad Blow When Aid Is Cut The spooling to death of such out- litwa as John Uillinger and "Pretty Hoy" Floyd is easily the most spectacular purl of the UcpaiimcnL of Justice's drive on crime. Equally important, l.'tit fai 1 less oxciting, is the quiet and methodical way in which the "U men" are cracking down on who give aid and comfort lo ga Twenty persons stood before a federal judge in Dallas, Tex., the other (lay to receive sentences for having harbored or assisted tough Clyde Har- rpw, recently deceased, and his cigar- ji'uffing juirnmour, Bonnie Parker, recently deceased. Among them were the mothers of the two outlaws, assorted sisters, liro- thers; friends, and a scattering of wind might euphemistically be called business associates. At one time or another these persons had helped the outlaws' hide from the police, or had 'given them help ill getting from some hot spot to a spot not so hot, or had done this or thai to make their careers of crime more lucrative. * » * Judge William II. Atwell no time in handing out, sentences winch in some cases ran as years in prison. The two mothers drew 30- day terms in jail. And as a result, only, ,onu, person of all those who at one time associated with the Barrow gang remains unpunished 'today—the gangster Raymond Hamilton, now being hunted by posses all over the southwest. Now a roundup of this kind does not get a tenth of the public attention that the actual slaying or imprisonment of a notorious criminal ;;cts; bul in the long run it is every hit as important in (lie drive to stamp out lawlessness. No outlaw plays « lone, hand, in modern America. The man who tried it wouldn't last a month. There must be "friends who can furnish hiding places in time of trouble, who can advance funds in the low spells between robberies, who can carry communications and help in forming plans and do all the other little ser- vices which enable a criminal to carry on his career. * * * To knock off the lending criminal and !e«ve this network of friends and lielpcrc untouched ia to invite repetition ol' the trouble. Getting the leader himself is the first job, of course. Hut after thai has been done, the persons who made his career possible need .'itlejilion. Blows like the one against the Harrow clan in Texas are the best kind of crime prevention work. Nothing will put a crimp in activities of the DjlliHjfcrs and [he Vhyiix Me n general public realization that to give any kind of help to such men i» exceedingly nnhealthful. —Bruce Gallon.

Young America's Ideal The average high school youngster values good physical health above everything else, if n clieck made at Thomas JelVerson high school, in New York City, is any a'iteriun. Boys and girls at that institution agreed' Hint 'physical illness is their chief aspiration. Next, to it the'boys ranked wisdom, ' likcability, service, wealth, and fame. The girls shifted the order only a little, agreeing with the boys in everything wave'that they valued appreciation of beauty 111,01-0 than worldly wealth. If one wanted lo bo very serious and profound, one probably could draw a number of morals from all this. One could write, for instance, that it all shows n distressing superficiality on live part of the nation's youth, and so on and so forth. But the more we think about it, the more we feel that it proves only this: that these high school youngsters are normal, healthy youngsters, intur&slcd in precisely those things one would expect normal, healthy youngsters to be interested in.
