WASHINGTON, D.C. - According to figures made available today through the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports and released by Attorney General Ramsey Clark, serious crime in the United States jumped 20 per cent inthefirstthreemonths of 1967 when compared with the same period in 1966. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover saud this substantial upsruge in the nation's crime was reflected ·in all crime index offenses. Crimes of violence, as a group, recorded a 21 per cent increase with murder up 23 per cent, forcible rape 8 per cent, rob. bery 32 per cent and aggravated assault 15 per cent. The group of crimes against property rose 20 per cent, with burglary up 21 per cent, larceny $50 and over in value 18 per cent, and auto theft 20 per cent. According to the FBI director, cities with 100,000 or more inhabitants had an overall 20 per cent increase. Crime in suburban communities rose 22 per cent on the average, and rural areas were up 16 per cent. Hoover notedthatregional trends were consistent with the western states up 21 per cent, followed by the north central and southern states up 20 per cent each, and the northeastern states up 18 per cent. All crime classifications recorded increases in the four geographical regions. In making these figures avail- jible, Hoover called attention to the unusuaUy sharp percentage increase in the crime of robbery. He stated every citypop- ulation group contributed to this trend with the increases ranging from 20 per cent in cities having over one million population to 42 per cent in the group of cities with 250,000 to 500,000 population. Robbery in the suburbs was up 37 per cent and increased 22 per cent in the rural areas. Robbery recorded substantial increases in all geographic regions as well. Hoover said the 20 per cent rise In serious crime in the United States for this three- month period was the sharpest recorded since the publication of quarterly reports began in 1958. He said a full explanation of the reasons for such sharp increases is difficult because the upward trend was distributed quite evenly In all geographic regions, large and small cities, suburban and rural areas.

"A GRADUATE'S SILENT PRAYER" Where have I been, where will 1 go? What vfill become of me? T do not know. I have studied hard, graduation is here, Soon I'll be o:it in the world -- I'm full of fear! It has been a rough road, it's almost over now, Whit will I do, what" will happen tomorrow? I will say a silent prayer for a guiding light, II will soothe me, and save me from fright! 1 will ask HIM to help us all, Dear God, above, please hear my call, We will leave soon, and go separate ways, As we march into the world I will imprint on my heart -FACE A F T E R FACE! Mary Heck 203-lst Ave. So. Nampa, "WHAT IS LOVE?" Love is a bundle of many things, Happiness and joy are one of its games. Together they play an important part; The warmest feelings we have in our heart. So many people can't describe That funny feeling hidden inside. For deep In the heart there's a place -A special someone, a noted face. Loneliness is someone you'll never meet -For love itself, will always keep!. Susan K.
