Crime Can Be Halted fit/ Being Exposed ,.• Tlic crime problem, like the poor, k ' is one of those tilings t'i'.iil always are with us. A grt'ttt inanj citizens have expended much honest labor in recent " years trying to llml out just why and ' how the underworld manages to get its steady stream of youthful recruits; ''and often enough some investigator - reports that one big mason is the "••fact that newspapers give so much space to crime news. This isn't, a new charge, to he sure; but it is heard fairly frequently, and it has bothered a number of high- vi -mindec| and conscientious folk. An — •excellent answer is to be found in testimony given not long n£o before the : Senate sub-committee on racketeer-ins by Dr. Carleton Simon of New York, 'associated with the New York police ^force. for the last 35 years, as crimin- i ologist.. The task of uncovering the elements ,.. ; that create crime, says Dr. Simon, "is "•/rriade greater and more difficult by the vast confusion of public thought" which arises from this effort to hold y newspaper crime stories culpable. * * * Some people, remarks, Dr. Simon, '"demand that every medium of intelli* gence, education, and entertainment be '"made completely harmless tq the sub•• normal mind of the delinquent child. ; And it does not take the doctor long to carry this thesis to its logical—and absurd—conclusion. Details of a train wreck, vividly presented, would be too !.:>iTowing for a sensitive adolescent mind. Therefore—let the press keep silent about all wrecks on land or son. Murder stories nlfect those with .. ^strong homicidal tendencies. Therefore—let no newspaper ever mention any murder case. , * » * '• Congressional debates, with their ' mud-sliriging and partisan criticism, • can give a child a dangerous contempt for political institutions. Hence we : must have no more repci'ls of the ac, tivities of Congress, no more exposures of malfeasance in office or of ! derelictions of duty by public officials. 1 And Dr. Simon rcmaiks: \ "A truly comprehensive research of \ the causes of crime requires a study OUT OUK WAY •f-~ - of every] influence, good ov had, brought to bear on our youth. Heredity, parental guidance and homo life, physical influence, association, school and church influences must all play Iheir part. "We cannot hu[ie to solve the problem of crime in relation to youth l>y drawing the curtain down upon crime." —Hruco Gallon. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, A Reactionary Boomerang Washington correspondents are beginning lo report llnil t!ie recent assault on President Roosevelt's monetary and recovery policies has had one . entirely unexpected effect. It has solidified congressional scnliin'."jl in his'sup- port and lias made it probable that lie can get his program Uirough congress this winter as smoothly and rapidly as he did last spring. The reason for this i.s simple. Right or wrong, it has seemed lo congressmen as though all lhe I'rc that lias hit the White House lias come from guns in the camp of the extreme conservatives. In consequence, those solons who had planned to kick over the traces and flood tin; coming session with all manner of radical proposals have taken a sicond thought and have decided that Ihuir first duty is to repel the attacks of the reactionaries. And I hey can do this only by standing by the president. Several weeks will elapse before congress convenes, of course, and the picture may change by thai time. Hut it wotdd be an ironical turn of fate if the net result of all the recent furore was only In strengthen ihe president's hand in his dealings with congress. A Simple Idea Worlds A convict in California's Folsom prison, according lo pix'uS dispatches, has invented a method of making hydrogen at a cQst about one forty-fifth of tliej present one. The man did his job in a small room off the warden's olticc, il is said, wring a maku-shift apparatus composed chiefly of four salad dressing jars, a single dry cell, and some odds- and ends of tubing and so on. Engineers who have examined his method believe it may revolutionise the hydrogen industry. We have no notion whether this will be the case, and the price of hydrogen doesn't affect us much, anyhow—but somehow we hope it all works out as these optimistic reports say. It's the kind of story that ought to be true, even if it isn't. The CWA can erect monuments and graveyards lu the tune of 10 or K> millions a year, but It can't get into the way of private cuter- prise or It will add to the producthe capacity and wind up in the graveyard. —Howard Scott, technocrat.

Ordinarily, winter is just about as healthful a season as any other, if you know how to practicp the simple rules of hygiene and exercise common sense in their application. You know, of course, that exposure may harm the human body and you can. in most cases, guard against it. A diet sufficiently rich in calories provide warmth for the body, which is more uec- ewary in winter than in summer. You know, nlso, that the common cold is more frequent in \viuler than in summer. That's because of artificial heating, wrong clothing, and other physical factors which cnn be brought, under control. | ',' • • • We do not know definitely iho chief cause of a cold.

There is n tendency in winter cither to take tco little exorcise or tco much. Some parents coddle their children in winter so that the child spends all his time indoors. Other parents, with a view to hardening the child, insist on his shoveling snow and messing about in the dampness. Here again reason is the right altitude. A suitable amount of outdoor air. with (he surety that :he child is well covered, that he does not remain wet out in the cold, Is n well worth while stimulus to lungs and circulation.
