PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3,193T Motive For Murder By Adolescents Studied By Prominent Psychiatrist PASTOR EXAMINES OLD TABOR HOME Old Tabor Home Erected Century Ago NEW YORK (UP)—A psychiatrist has challenged his colleagues and all others concerned with juvenile delinquency, to explain "•murder by adolescents with obscure motivation," Dr. A. Warren Stearns believes that if you don't understand the reasons for criminal behavior, you can't intelligently "correct" HOT "reform" nor "rehabilitate" adolescents, who behave criminally. He male cited four murders by adolescents who were aU "•model" youths, who were free of all obvious signs of mental i'lness, and who murdered on "impulse" for no apparent reason whatever. „ « AH that these four youthful murderers had in common, Dr. Stearas pointed out, was that their victims were females, two of whom were "scantily clad," and all the murders were "wanton and ferocious.'.' For the purpose of his discus- sion in the technical journal of the American Psychiatric Asso- ciato>in, he found it "enough to identify adolescence as a period when estraordinairy things may take place; These may be the arousal to great events, the simple revolt from parental or adult control, or suicide without motivation. Murder is comparatively rare at this period." •Two of his examples were prisoners as they had been model youths, and two have taken advantage of prison facilities to acquire educations. One has been in prison 12 years, another 10 years. None has any more idea of what motivated his shoeking crime than the psychiatrists who studied them. Dr. Stearns' question was whether ftey would have killed again in 18 the- same way under similar, cir- at the time they murdered; the others were 13 and 15, Tte crimes wore as unreasonable as they could be. Aside from two victims toe <i uestlon n £ c . lted \ mto case K™, h^n "w^nHiv rfad." tihere -a 13 year old boy whose crime cumstances if they hadn't been imprisoned. Without, attempting to answer the question he cited a fifth case having been "scantily dad," tihere was no indication of sex having had anything to 'do with them. All the murderers were thoroughly examined by psychiatrists who found them sound,of mind. AU were sentenced to life im- and none has developed the least trace of mental illness in prison up to the time of Dr. Stearns' report. On the contrary, all have become model fere's Mm: Try Brightening '•ARE YOU the saving type? •'You know, -the kind that can't ors that harmonize—corn, -carrots, b'jar to part with greeting cards, old seed packets, used theater tickets, pretty magazine pictures, and other bright bits of color. If you are, here's'a chance to show the family you really had something in mind all along. One way is bo use your treasures as decoration on a room divider screen, a popular meiiiod of screening off a cluttered area on a room. Make a screen yourself out of plywood, or buy an unpainted one, amd then paste attractive cutouts on the board, choosing them to blend in with file decor oTa room. A screen in a child's room may foe dressed up with cut-outs from picture books, greeting cards or the child's own • drawings, if the screen is to go into library or den, cover it with the pick of your Christmas cards, old magazines or theater tickets. A living room screen would take handsomely to colored pictures of antiques, flowers, binds.

If you haven't used these little packets with their brilliant blossoms to perk up some little area of your home, give it some thought now. ble packets in the kitchen can look lovely. Use them around a win dow, just below the ceiling or Southern Methodist University, around a door for a special effect. Harness the little packets to your color scheme so that if the kitch- en is yellow, you will choose col- nasturtiums, golden . chrysantihe- mums. Another place where the little seed packets may be used is in a youngster's room. Paste them to a lamp shade or some other item in the child's room.

Dr. Stearns argued it should be possible to establish the and symptoms , which go criminal behavior, just as ar-e signs, and symptoms which go with all bodily illnesses. These v/ouJd be different signs and symptons, of course. Hs challenge was to find them, describe them, and use them. "When physicians classified certain types of sickness as fevers, it was quite an.advance step," he said. "It at least brought the cases together which ultimately turned out to be infections. When the group was broken down into measles, scarlet fever, diphtheria, typhoid, and so forth, it laid the way to further understanding and, as it burned out, specific treatment."

Plant with due care and keep the soil moast, until Jack Frost calls a halt on gardening. Any changes in the flower border should be made now as the different types of flowers may be easily determined even by the beginner. This is a favorable time to set out new plants of practically all perennials except Japanese anemones planting. (Staff Photo.) •The Rev. Alfred Gerni, pastor of the St. James Lutheran church, standing beside one of the many fireplaces in the old Tabor home at the northwest corner of Tenth and Spear streets, examines one of the old magazines found in the ancient building. The structure is being razed for a church parking lot. The 14-room home of the late Jesse Taber at the northwest corner of Tenth and Spear streets, which is being razed by the Don Roberts Wrecking company to provide a parking lot for the St. James Evangelical Lutheran church, was erected almost a century ago, according to information on old Logansport homes compiled by Miss Mary Shultz. Part of the home, which was occupied by the Taiber family for almost 85 years, was built in the late 1850's or early 1860's by the late Levi Landes, a local hardware dealer. torney, who added the west side of the house to bhe original structure before he in turn sold the residence hi 1871 to the late Paul Taber, father of Jesse and son of Cyrus Taber, Gas's county's first treasurer. The once fine home boasts four porches, two in the'front and two in the rear, while the ceilings in iboth the downstairs and upstairs rooms are 12 feet' high. Another indication of the age of ttie rambling brick structure is the fact that there is a fireplace in every room, a necessity before central heating SV& . loSl * ten,, M* ,1 fts fracas in the house are of marble, although one is of brick construction. The house also has two cisterns and a dug well. One of the cisterns was for household use and the other was for use only in event of a fire.
