O'Neill, newly elcstcd n-ilioinl commander of the American Legion, says that juvenile delinquency is America's Public Enemy Number One. His statement was made mime-, 1 diately following Iwo particularly horrifying examples of the juve-i nile dehquent at. ' work. Item: one 14 year-old boy, to prove himself not 1 a sinsy, deliberately setting out on Katli Mlllett H plan to kill another youth. Hem: a wild gang fight on (> streets of New York, in whicl many of the participants walked away with black eyes and othe marks of damage. This would no I be unusual, except all the brawler were girls, participating in a stree fight to determine which of t.v, factions should have prior claim ove a group of boys as dates. The only trouble with Command er O'Ncil's statement Is that ther is no such thing as a "juvenile do lir.qucnt any more. Juvenile in year; | possloly. Juvenile in stature, pel haps. But there is no more juvenil mind. ClIJCUS, NOT CKJME ' A decade ago, a 14-year-nlcl bo i to establish his masculinity, woul have run away from home and join ed a circus, or something of th; sort. But it wouldn't have occurre to him to kill. A dL':atle ago, a group of girls, to establish their dating claims, : would have primped a bit more, or j dressed more carefully. But they wouldn't have slugged it out. The Number One Puttie Enemy. Commander, is the civilization which creates an adult too young.
