18 Thursday, March 2, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE GAVE CHILDREN NEW ACTIVITIES St. Louis Cites Work on Juvenile Problems By BETTY ALEXANDER St. Louis, (U,P--Frank X. Reller, chief probation officer, said Thursday that St. Louis decreased its juvenile delinquency in 1943 simply by "giving the kids something to do" while other cities were worrying about the increasing number of wayward children. "It does no good to chase kids off the street with a curfew if you don't know what they're going to do in the alley," Heeler said. "Teen-aged kids let out on the street by our war-time pace of living arc simply looking for something to do. If left to do whatever invites them, the result can't be expected to be good." Officers of the police juvenile division have organized games dances and sewing groups to keep the youngsters too occupied to be delinquent, Reeler said. A 12 team basketball league operating nightly in the police gymnashm keeps about 500 boys busy, anc a soccer league under police supervision plays in the municipal athletic association. The formula worked, Keller said, and St. Louis showed 7.5 per cent decrease in juvenile delinquency during 1942. When a ·youngster under 17 is picked u] for crimes, or even over-exuber ·ant pranks, he is placed in the FARM PRICE INDEX GAINS Advance of 1 Point Reported by Carl D«s Moines, (IP)--The index of prices paid for Iowa farm products gained 1 point between Jan. 15 and Feb. 15, reflecting a slight increase in livestock prices, notably sheep and lambs. The index on Feb. 15 was 187, Leslie M. Carl, director of the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said Thursday. "Prices of farm commodities generally have attained great stability in recent months, operating as many of them do' under war imposed restrictions and ceilings,' he continued. "There is no change to record this month in the indices graint, dairy products or! oultry, which remain at 196, 190 nd 181, respectively." The corn-hog ratio advanced ·om 13 to 13.1 due to slight .rengthening in hog prices and 10 egg-poultry lecd ratio also made a slight advance from 10.8 11.2, thus reversing the recent rend which had sharply curtailed le feeding margins of poultry- men, Carl reported. The dairy- eed ratio remained unchanged at 5 pounds of feed to one pound of utterfat. BONNET FOR IKE-- Maj. Gen. Homer M.

MrsQarks SALADDRESSING custody of the juvenile division where rehabilitation starts. There is a 2 way education program behind the decrease in delinquency, Keller said. Parents are taught their responsibility toward their children, just as children are taught their duty to society. Most juvenile crimes fall in the 14 to 17 age bracket, Reller said, with girls predominating. "You can't blame a young girl for picking up servicemen and hanging around taverns if her parents don't know or care where she is," he said. "Help her find wholesome, interesting recreations and you don't need to worry."

Believes Newsprint Supply to Be Stable or Increase in 1944 Washington, (U.R)--The newsprint supply will remain stable, or even increase during the latter half of 1944, if unforeseen demands for paper do not arise and increases in pulpwood production are realized, Acting Director Harold Boeschenstein of the war production board forest products bureau said Wednesday. Addressing a closed session of the newspaper industry advisory committee, Boeschenstein a d - mitted, however, that he could not guarantee that military paper and paperboard requirements, would not be increased. The advisory committee, composed of newspaper industry representatives, . recommended enforcement of strict compliance with newspaper limitation order 1-240 which provides fines and imprisonment for wilful violation of newsprint quotas. It also suggested that further deliveries o£ priority materials · to violators be curtailed.
