Hut a nation that is plagued hy gangs ,ind wonders what on earth il ever is goin^ to- dq about them could dn worsn thun study the connection between tlie two. The other day a U. S. army olficer, Cajit. Tliomas K. -May, iinishcd » six- montli tour of duty with the CCG and told of his experiences in that outfit with certain budding gangsters from New York. Captain May's camp Intel more than its share of tough young mugs from the New York East Side. Sonu'limes, the captain admits, he felt that the New York welfare organiy.iilioiK that . enrolled .some of his young foresters. "must have sent us most of their problem cases." ~ Some of the lads even Uied to organize a racket in the camp itself, forcing companions to pay them for "protection"; one. youiig.itcr. wrotu . proudly 'to his mother, tiling about it. + - * * But eventually the captain got the boys .straightened out. He separated the young racketeers and f.eiit the individuals to other camps, where they coi|!d escape from association with their own kind ; and he w;is ama/ed to 'isee how quickly these hard-boiled /young street bullies {timed into hon.•est, decent, hard-working, mid ambil- igus specimens of healthy young manhood. "They never have had much of a chance," he says. "They hardly knew anything about civilized living. Hut I never saw a group more i-i-.gcr to do the right thing or more willing to follow a right example." Now there is enough of a moral in this little story to litl a book. Nothing could ?how mure clearly how the modern' underworld gang is a product of society .as n whole. The lads who go into the gangs are forced in by environment. Change the environment, give, them a chance to earn an honest living in decent surroundings, put them in an atmosphere where that kind o! endeavor is appreciated— and, presto!- they abruptly cease, to be the kind of material gangs are made of. If it taught us no more that, UUT OUK WAY the forest army project would l)u worth every dime it cost. We simply do not need to have gangs. The lads who grow up to be hired killers are not irredeemably vicious. Society c;m make useful Americans of them if it cures to make the d'- fort and spend Hie money. Hefonner.s anil huve Ijecn saying tlmt for years, and \vc liavc scoffed and .said that \viis impractical theorizing. Well—it works. If we have hall' the sense we think wo have, we shall uu ahwul and make it work some more. —Bruce UiiUoii. WKDN'KSDAV, JANUARY Returned Gijts Assistant Sccrclai-y of Commerce Ewing.Y.

Mr. Mitchell nolil'inl the em- ployes that "it is nut good practice for a government ofl'icia! or employe to accept gifts, oven of small value, from those with whom lie may have business relations." To be sure, these particular gifts seem to have been harmless enough. Nobody imagines that a government official in going to sell his soul for a box of cigars..' Kut the principle is rather import• '.till. . An ironclad rule against acceptance even of insignificant favors is - u good' bulwark against growth of public suspicion. More Bank. Supervision Increased government supervision of the nation's banking system seems likely tu follow on the heels i'f the new deposit insurance plan. Ueports from Washington say that officials of the Reconstruction Finance Cor|Kjration are considering ways of assuming a voice in the control of banking institutions into which millions of RFC funds have been pumited. 'Die iU-X; has spent SXW.OOO.ODO buying capital stock in nearly 0,000 bunks; it is hardly surprising that such extensive stock purchuscs should be expected to carry a voice in management. Just where ihi.s tendency is going to take our banking structure, however, is not entirely clear. Are we insensibly heading in the direction of. straight- out government operation of the banking business? A man who believes in signs almost could be induced to think so We must leach the youth of today not by do's :,nd (ion'ls or even by example, so nuicli ;is by working with them. —Lc:ter P.
