TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 25, 1930, THE DAILY COURIER, CONNE v'LSVILLK, PA. WASHINGTON HAJ) | CRIME is mowim CLEAR VISION VALUE! IN 1 IIALL CIT1ES INLAND NAVIGATION Mapped Potomae-OIifo Canal As "Channel and Conycy- nnce of Rising Empire." OPENED WAY FOR B. O. RAILROAD I n UUi radio ;KUlross on th« eve ot Washington's Ulrthdny, Dr. Julius Klein, assiwtuii! secretary of the Be- DepartiiMjnt of Commerce, made reference to the early study Waahlngton gave to the study of inland navigation ami the projects he proposed for its -. development. In reference to the Potoinac-Oho canal Dr. Kloin said: "George Washington ami Herbert Hoover are alike in being engineers-in having had wld« experience in practical business «;nterprlse--and la tho assiduous enwuragoraont of const motive undertaking. In the 130 years that separate those two administrations, tho Nation has hail no other Chief .Executive with qualifications of just that eort. ''They a-o alik-e in their enthusiasm for waterways as aids to business. I f i n d Washington w r i t i n g about bin 'fwitotnplutivc and extensive view of tho vaet inland navigation oE the United Stutetj 1 and saying that he 'could not but ho struck w i t h the Im- monao diffusion and importance ot it, and with tho (.-txlness of tliat Providence w h i c h luif dealt His favors to us w i t h to profuse a hand.' He concludes .vltli tho remark: 'Would to CVod wo :imy have wisdom enough to Improve torn!' "Washington did everything within h)u power to bring that end to pasa. Ho had a positive uuoanny comprehension of the vital importance ot trade routes. A f t e r the Revolution and before he be- ramo President, there was something u a urials with regard to the vact territories that lay beyond the Alle- Kheules. Settlement was proceeding out there in thf) wilderness. Trade was; developing. Which way would that trade flow'.' Down at the mouth of the Mltisisulppi lay Spanish New Orleans. The Spanish authorities were offering all possible commercial inducements. Would the trade ot the w««tern country go down the Ohio and .Mississippi, t u r n lug the natural allegl- iin^e of the people In that direction? Or would It come through the passes '.·aatward to tho Atlautic eeaooartl, t h u s binding thiv ed venturous 'settlers w i t h firm bonds of commerce to tho original States of tho Union? "The situation was dramatic. Washington deemed 1; vital that a vigorous effort should be made to attract the trade toward the- Atlantic. So he wa« i!!e of the prim** movers In tho Potomac River Company, of which he became president. The plan was to clear the river, so tor f a possible, ot obstructions-- to hulkl equate around the falla --to provide for truntsport over portage*--and thus link the headwaters of the I'ctomac wiih those of the Ohio, It was a. broad-gauge business project, w i t h Washington ut the head. It proved too amblMoue for that period; Itri Immediate ends were not attained; but it opened tht way for the Chesapeake Ohio Caial and the Baltimore Ohio Railraod. "Washington not only first mapped ami recomtnendid thwi route which «'a« to become, in his words, 'the channel and conveyance of the extensive and valuaole trade of a rising empire'; ho was also tho first to predict tho commercial success ot t h a t route across central Now York State through the Mohawk Valley, which was afterward taken by the Erie '·; Canal and the New York Central R a f l '; road. And he explored it In person. : Ho wanted, he said, to 'draw the pro- i (luce of the western settlers, the peltry 1 \tul fur trade of t ; .ie lakee, to our ports' j --the port in the then-extettng United * States."

Ci««J of ftwtn 28,000 to 100,000 show th« hJghest commitment ratio, 28.0 per 100,000, but they are just slightly abov« placoa with from 2,500 to 10,000. According to the census report cities of 10,000 to 45,000 arc the beat ben a veil. Crime was found far wort prevalent In the city than IE th« country. "Of the total number of prisoners for whom the locntlon of crime Wa reported," it li poi ite'd out, "77.8 p«r c«nt weir* Imprison d for crimes com- mltted in urban pltctw, and rural MC- tlona were the scene of only 22.2 per cent of (he crime*. Urban places show a commitment ratio per hundred thousand of population of 25.1, as against the rural ratio of T.(5." The census ropo-t added that the "commitment ratios. According to sex, .show a greater disparity for females than for males betv e«n the urban nnd rnrnl commitment ratios.* "For females," Jt ssld, "the commitment ratio was 3.7 for urban KB ngnlnnt a rural ratio of 0.5."

But, it In said, "I la quite probable that offenders hav ng education arc more s^cceiisful In e voiding arrest and conrlction for tbolr crimes.
