Parental Supervision Cure for Teen-Age Crime From coast to const Uie kids are funning wild. H'a high sport for youngsters to beat up innocent people, to shoot-and • ' kill each other in well-generaled gang wars, to /ill city streets with terror and violence. From remedies offered, certain definite ideas emerge. Youngsters need companionship and organized, disciplined group activity in healthful surroundings. Delinquency can spring up when any of the elements basic to normal •growth is missing. That crowded city shims are oreed- . ers of crime i s accepted by the experts. Dirty tenements and endless stretches of cheerless pavement don't encourage the rounded life for urban youth. But you can't put all the blame on the. slums. Many' a pcor lad has licked his bad environment and gone DJI to success in his chosen field. Plenty of . youngsters grow to adulthood in a mean setting without running amok. Modern city family life frequently is much at fault. Good parental discipline is no longer a common commodity. Parents may be pre-occupicd with grubbing a living, or perhaps merely with enjoying themselves. Whatever the reason, they're indifferent to their children's normal needs. , Some psychologists see the city family set-up as wholly artificial from the youngster's standpoint. Living too often in cramped apartment quarters, the parents put the damper on a child's natural impulses It ward noisy play, adventure, excitement. Movies and radio, welcomed by parents as outlets for youthful enthusiasm, nnfortunately lend to warp those impulses into unhealthy channels. Most experts agree that movie-radio emphasis on crime is doing grave damage to impressionable minds. Better housii.g, real play space, green grass are obviously desirable substitutes for dismal skims. Where slum clearance is a remote goal, churches, schools and school yards, community centers and fraternal halts should be made available to kids for a wide range of organized activities The parents I we a double responsibility in this problem. They must face up to I heir basic task of disciplining their children wisely and continuously. Outside activities need the touch of parental supervision. lint perhaps even irore important, parents have got to make a real place for their children in the crowded city home of loday. S'.u.oing UILMII off to the movies or onto the streets i s shirking their duty. At sacrifice to themselves, mothers and fathers have got to find as many home outlets as possible for their youngsters normal urges Home is not much of a child's world right now; it ought lo be a better one. Relief from Hot Weather And the Daily Strain Spring is fast fading' into summer and what are commonly called "Dog Days" are in the foreseeable .future. As fishing, baseball, swimming and just plain loafing becoming more attractive every day, work and Hie worries of work-a-day life become increasingly difficult to face cheerfully. As the sun climbs higher, our interest slips accordingly in such non- cooling items as the cost of living, Congressional turmoil, government spending, political hogwash and Senatorial investigations. 13ut every now and then a bit of . relief is offered. In this vein falls such things as beauty contests held in Blytheville and Osccola last night. ]t eases considerably the weary mind to be able to get outdoors and contemplate nothing more taxing than a parade of comely young ladies. The Communists are creating disturbing news In both Germany and Japan, Reds are being Hunted in all corners of Washington and defense spending has become a crucial issue We don't recommend that citizens fail to follow current events closely, but it must be admitted that some relief is due at times. The world is awnirl with "situations." The weather is hot and the mind tires easily. But there's the second round of the Blytheville Bcaiily Pageant coming off tonight—some relief has arrived. Views of Others 'Spiramid' An abstract form of beauty called the "Spir- amid" is lo be eroded on Ihe Chicago Hilr Grounds. Broad at the bnse and tapering, designed In the suggestion of a limitless spiral, it has been given nn aplcr nnmc than Webster's generalized "spiraloid. 1 It suggests, we rend, "the upward spiral of progress to new and ever loftier heights In the standards of American living." The fair itself .scheduled to open June 24, Is planned «s an "exposition of the American way of life." After the fnir Is through wilh this object, which would have made a swell paperweight for Paul Bunwan anecdotes, we trust it and its name will be preserved lor nr even apler symbolizing of the New-Fair Deal nnd transplanted (o Its sent nl the capital. In fnct, the "Spirarnid Deal" is itself a more npproprinte nnd succinct title for Dr. Truman's combination of recipes and experiments than any that easily comes to mind. What other term so graphically suggests the endless pyramiding of debt, spending, taxes, nnd votes, the spiral of wage hikes price hikes, higher cast for the same standard ol living, depleted worth of pensions, insurance, relief checks, etc., and the responding twirl of more taxes.' more costs, more wage hikes, more price hikes ad infinltum?

"Spiramid" is one of those words thai, a New Dealer can use with full faith in its complimentary connotations, and that an anti-New Dealer and mlddle-roader can pronounce with fine sibilant effect. There is. too, a place on the symbol it describes for the little man. There he is, tight at the top of the pyramid-spiral, his legs dangling, his arms clutching, braced /or nnother whip around the ascending circuit. —NEW ORLEANS TIMES-PICAYUNE Gains and Losses. The federal Rovemment Is stock-piling some essential minerals, rubber nnd other "sinews ot war" in case of need. A Maine Congressman, Representative Fellows, thinks the nation ought to be "stockpiling spiritual resources."

FRIDAY, JVKfj 9, Get Him Out—And Keep Him Out, Sam DEMOCRACIES UNION Peter Edson's Washington Column — Chinas UN Seat Has Become 'Hot Potato' in Global Politics WASHINGTON —(NEA)— First showdown on U.S. relations wilh the Chinese—both Nationalists and 'Jommimists—may come in September when United Nations General Assembly and Security Council meet again. An initial test may come on a nove to unseat he Chinese Nn- ionalist govcrn- nent's delegate to he General Assembly.

That made Prance decide to switch its vote and it raised the interesting question of whether the Security Council.- The United States has taken the position that it recognizes only the Nationalist government and will continue to recognize it. * In the Security Council, the United States will take the position that it will vote against admission of the Communists' so-called Chinese People's Republic, but will not consider this a veto. That menus the question could be decided in the Security Council by a majority, or seven of the 11 members. Last year the Russians , might have had such n majority, since France nnd Egypt were about to recognize the Chinese Communist government, along with Britain, Yugoslavia, Norway, India, Russia.

Salvation through judgment is the dominant theme of the Prophet Zephaninh, who lived and prophesied more than 600 years before Christ. It was in the reign of Josiah, King of Judah. and one should read the twenty-second and twenty-third chapters of n Kings to get the historical setting and the events of the time. Josiah was only eight years old when his father died nnd he began his reignT But in his eighteenth year n great reformation occurred upon the discovery in the Temple of the Book of Law, probably portions of the Book of Deuteronomy. Such a reformation, vividly described in II Kings 22, was long overdue, for the preceding reigns great wicked- idolatry, and corruption of had been times of ness, with flagrant the degration and worship. The times were pregnant with danger, and the fall of the kingdom, with the exile of the people lo Babylon, was not far off. The little land of Palestine was caught, as it has often been, between great wnr- ring empires, and Josiah, himself was to fall in battle, when he became involved against Egypt. It was a time of opportunity, as well as of peril, for prophets, if they spoke words of truth and warning, if they pointed at the evils But Trygve Lie, secretary general of the United Nations, in the proposals recently made public, suggested that new negotiations b* commenced to bring the armament* rnce under control. Then yesterday a bl-parliEBi! group of H senator* and representatives proposed that Congress advocate an imme special session of the United tions general assembly to stop tin armaments race. Acliecoa Is Sympathetic Dean Acheson, secretary of stat*. yesterday expressed sympathy with Lie's proposals and gave assurance that the United States would continue Its four-year effort In the United Nations to find some method for effective armaments control. But in the following statement he made it clear that he does not feel that a reduction in armaments by the Western powers at this time will promote the cause of peace: "We must carry forward In our own determination to create situations of strength in the free world because this is the only basis on which lasting agreement with the Soviet government Is possible. Thii in our judgment Is the road to peace." Purpose of Soviet If any new disarmament negotiations were begun at this time, the viewpoint of diplomatic officials in Washington is that the Soviet Union would adopt Its customary practice of using the conference as a means of promoting some purpose of its own. And real disarn><i- ment is unlikely to be that puriffc. This Soviet tactic, as seen in me United Nations, was thus described by Acheson: "The difference between the So- vlel attitude and our own and other Western governments' attitudes toward the United Nations is that trie Soviet government uses it as an instrumentality for whatever kind oJ maneuver it wishes lo indulge in at the time; whereas we do our best to carry out the purposes of ths charter." , Russia .May Agree Some observers wouldn't be surprised to see the Russians eagerly agree to any new disarmament conference which is proposed, although = ' " t.-.-j fj'->,»L>,ii at kilt: evils Hi i, L j 11- i and weaknesses of what was ostcn- estimated that they are. sibl.v a time of prosperity they were! s P eudln S almost three times as much subject to the charge 'that they ?" ., thrteir '"""">; Program as the were pessimists, and disloyal to H',V- States.

He ^vould probably see quite clearly that East actually held the queen of diamonds and was trying to disguise it. If East happened to be a really great bridge player, he might discard a diamond from a worthless holding. The idea would be to persuade South that East was trying to disguise n strong dia'mond holding. If yon think that this is now will will becoming very complicntcd. 1 agree with you. I think you have to agree with me. however, that South has plenty lo think about. He must decide how good cing peace for four years and making a variety of proposals for irmaments limitation. But whenever the Western powers have pinned them down to a practical method of reducing armaments, they have lost interest or exercised their veto. As a part of proposed disarmament agreements, the United States, among other nations, has offered to permit an international comjpis- sion to make thorough inspections in this country to assure that no atomic weapons were being Pflc- duccd. provided Russia did the sstHf. The United -States has agreed 'to let an international group take a census of all armaments in this country, if Russia also would permit such a census. Russia promptly rejected both proposals. Typical ReiJ Proposal A typical Russian peace proposal was that which Andrei Vishinsky made in the U. N. general assembly In October, 1948. He suggested that the five major powers reduce their armaments one-third. That would have meant that the United States would have been left with six combat divisions, and the countries of Western Europe with about 15. After the cut. however, the Soviet Army would still have had 127 combat divisions, and the satellite countries nbout 70. The Soviet view on disarmament was authoritatively expressed in a book, "The War Economy of tha U.S.S.R." written in 1947 by Nikolai A. VoUnesensky, then a member of the all powerful politburo. "To prevent the possibility of appearance within a future period of new Imperialist aggression against the Socialist homeland, and the beginning of a third World War, it i] necessary that the aggressor Imperialist countries be disarmed militarily and economically, and that the anti-imperialist democratia countries (Russia and her satellites) rally together."
