"Guess we're pretty lucky in our town, Judge, lhat we don't have the youth problem you read about in other places." "Don't know as you can call it lucky, Harold...we saw it coming with the war and we did something about it before it hit us. We gave our 'teen age youngsters the v recreational facilities they needed and really wanted. Those familiar with this wartime problem know that young folks go to places they shouldn't only when the proper places are not provided for them. Young people always want to be with others of their omi age... want theirowntypeof entertainment Town alter town has found out that once these simple wants are met, the problem is well on iu way to being licked." /'Guess I didn't really know how farsighted our town really is, Judge.
