PAGE TEN Meat Shortage May Be Acute Government Experts Gloomy Over Outlook For U.S. Consumers By Vincent Burke Unit** Pr«*» Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON', Jan. 28. (UP) — Government analysts now fear that th« IMS meat Ihortage a going to be worse — by about 160.000.000 pounds— th«n the Agriculture Department. predicted last Flail. Tfc« new estimate ot the year's meat supply has not been made public but informed sources said tht slide-rule experts are revising tht'old estimate downward by about 1,1 pounds of meat per person. " They now foresee a IMS moat mipply of 144.9 pounds per person. these sources said, instead of the 14« pounds forecast last Pall. Tim compares with the 156 pounds per «plt» consumed in 1947, a year o! high meat production in which prices nevertheless remained hicli because of the great demand for meat, It was on the basis of the 146- pound estimate that Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson predicted last month that the people would be demanding meat rationing by Spring, A special Senate su&comnHttcc will begin hearings tomorrow on a bill by Sen. Ralph E. Flanders, R., Vt., under which meat rationing machinery would be readied Jusl in case it proves nece-ssary. Agriculture department officials, who will be the frst witnesses, may present the lower estimate for 1948 supplies in arguing for control. The new estimate presumably takes into account the latest reaction of farmers to the high cost *nd the shortage of feed grain. There are indications that tanners intend to raise even fewer pigs this Spring than called for in the production goals suggested by the Agriculture Department. Spring pigs furnish the nation's Fall and Winter porlc supply. Meanwhile, the irorcmmeiit prepared to suggest to the nation's meat packers that they work out some sort of voluntary allocation system to assure "fair distribution'' ot meat to all areas when shortages develop, The meat pinch is •xpected to be tightest in the Spring and Summer. The industry-wide allocation tuggeslion was advanced as nn "anti-inflation" measure by assistant Secretary of Agriculture. Chnrlcs P. Brannan at a meeting with the packers yesterday. The government still wiiuls meat rationing authority, agriculture •otirees said. But it feels that if Congress faiU to provide that authority, the voluntary allocation •ystem might serve to cushion the Inflationary blow o£ a meat shortage. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIEK NEWS French Courts, struggling to Curb Delinquency Among Juveniles, Adopt Methods Used in U.S. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1948 By Rosette Hargrove (NKA Special Correspondent) PARIS (NBA>-T!ie K-nr-aBgrn- vnU'd tide of juvenile delinquency has forced France lo niodernl/.e her antiquated legal machinery. Bv decree, she now has Introduced features that the United states has taken for granted for some years Until the Liberation, children were tried In ' adult Criminal Courts nnd were punished for Crimes. Now minors—muter 18 years old—arc Judged in the Children's and Adolescents' Tribunal, which Is supposed to reform rather than punish them. One goal ot tills system Is (o avoid burdening a youngster with a lifelong criminal record because of a single offense. The Tribunal's Judges are authorized, if they see (it, to remove all record of a" sentence passed on a minor, after five years If the child Is nut an habitual offender. The new setup gives each children's magistrate access lo the most modern information on child psychology—to make him an enlightened social worker and humanitarian rather than just a judge. Probation. Inspired by u. s. experience, ts new in France. The judges here favor it heartily, Wherc- ever possible they send delinquents back into the family circle, under watch of a probation officer. But us with so many othT things, (here aren't enough probation officers. In the Paris region 12 of thr-nvas- sisted by 750 volunteer social workers, are trying to handle 5000 juveniles ;ioiy on probation. I was given the jealously restricted privilege of attending a session of the Children's Trabunal tn the Rrim Palais de Justice. In Paris. It was held in a larse. well- lighted room In the modern section of the building. A colorful tapestry covered the wall behind the bench. The Judge was assisted by two assessors from n panel of psychologists, doctors, teachers, social workers. The probation officers interested hi cases to be heard, and some .social workers, were present. Delinquents waited in R room outside, and parent.s and others responsible for the children waited on benches in a corridor. The only marks of R courtroom were the judge's black robe and the gendarmes at the doors. The atmosphere was one of friendliness. The judge used the familiar "Hi" in questioning tiie children. Three Ind.!, ranging from 13 to t Hawkes Seeks To Amend Anti-Lynching Bill WASHINGTON. Jan. 27 (UP)B«n. Albert W. Hawkes. R.. N. J., yesterday proposed amendments to hl« antl-lynching bill to require that cases arising from lynching! be tried in districts olher than where the action occurs. The proposed amendment was submitted to Chairman Homer Fergu- aon, R., Mich., ot (he Senate Judiciary Subcommittee considering his antl-lynchlng bill. It would provide that trials, either criminal or civil, could not be "within the territorial limits of any governmental subdivision within which a lynching, which Is a basis for such action, occurred." Another amendment proposed by Hawkes was that Ihe definition of "lynching" be broadened by the act tw apply to all cases where death or Injury occurred during mob action. ARMY SURPLUS O.D.

They mumbled some uncomprp. hensiblc attempt to explain why they had left. Judge Casal patiently explained (hat he had placed them there for their own good. and that ihey could learn a useful trade there by which to earn an honest living. Pretty 15-ycnr-olrl D.. also hud walked out of nn institution where she had been sent six months before for vagrancy and prostitr- tion. Her divorced mother explained that she had never been able to control the girl, After considering the record the judge decided to send Denise to another home, in the North of Prance, where her father could visit her as ollcn as regulations permitted. Such an approach (o juvenile delinquency may seem routine in the U. S.. but over here It is almost revolutionary in its modernity. H might not have been begun even now bul for Prance's sudden realization, after the Liberation, that the new generation was in a bad way. The breakup of home life was |one impnrlmu factor in the breakdown of youthful morality. It Is the major factor hampering efforts ! to put adolescents back onto the right track. France hopes for much from the reform in its judicial system. But educators and judges agree that what the nation's chiltlrai need most is the re-establishment of sane, normal home life. Even under the handicaps they lace, authorities tackling the youth problem arc making some headway They cite a census tnken last year In the Paris region, covering 6171 children on probation. Of these R8 had "relapsed" into further delinquency, but -12 had improved so much .they were discharged from probation. 218 were considered to be progressing well. 87 had remained stationary, 2!) hnd enlisted in the army, ar.d 15:1 Mere "consolidated."

Court Upholds Allocation of Scarce Grains WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 (UP) — A special three-judge Federal Court yesterday unanimously upheld constitutionality of Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson's order allocating the use of grain by distilleries during January. The court rejected a suit by Sch- enlcy Distillery Corp., which argued that the order was invalid. The order wiis issued under terms of the He- pub] lea n-.sponsored anti-inflation law passed nt the special session of Congress. The courl sent Schcnlcy's plea fo.- an injunction back to federal district court for a ruling on the retroactive clause of the Brain order. Under this clause, any distiller who used grain in the five days between the end ol the voluntary liquor Holiday Dec. 25 nnd the effective date of Anderson's order, Jan !, was penall/.cd the amount he used in his January quotn. Voluntary Restrictions On Use of Grain Urged WASHINGTON, Jan. '28. HIP) — The government asked meat packers, b;ikers, millers, feed manufacturers nnd poulirymen today to help fight, inflation by voluntary agreements lo use less grain. Industry representatives met with assistant Secretary of Agriculture Charles F. Uranium, who urged them to work out voluntary industrywide agreements permissable under the cmcrnency anti-inflation law. Brnnnan said such agreements would alleviate the critically-tight Bruin situation and perhaps make it unnecessary for the government to recommend to Congress legislation for mandatory restrictions on the use of grain.
