(UP) — FBI Director J. Kclcnr Hoover loduy called for better pay for teacher's with :i warning that the nation is inviting greater juvenile delinquency by its "penny-wise and pound- foolish" altitude toward education. "Cur teen-age crime rate has dropped slightly from the wartime peak, but it's still alarmingly high" the G-man chief said. "We can't ufford to court further trouble by denying our youngsters the best possible cdttcationiU opportunities." Hoover urged-more pay for teachers as a step toward combating juvenile delinquency. He deplored the prciil trend of qualified s t u . flouts lo spurn Ihe teaching field and called attention to the loss during the last five years of about JoO.OBo teachers to other jobs "Better education — and that means better teachers—can cut om national crime bill," he said in an interview. "The school can be a decisive supplement to the home in directing the child into a lifetime course of la.w and order A Bond teacher can make np "for oilier lacks in a youngster's training for good citizenship." Hoover's warning came ns police reports from throughout the- country revealed the first drop in ju \eiulc delinquency since before tin Tn the first half of-this year 17 (i per cent of all arrests were of persons below 21 years of age.

"Many c.f these anti-social traits cot.kl be detected in the school room by a good teacher," 'lie said •With proper guidance many of these children «nild be educated to become abiding citizens instead of criminals." Hoover bslicvcs that the younre. the child, the more susceptible he is to character-building influence "These children could have been helped most in the lower grades' he said. "But we offer little'induce- ment for qualified persons to become grade, sphcol teachers "We pay" our grade'scfiooi''teach- crs throughout the country an average of S1.36U a year-less than we pay many typists or day labor- Lesser, but still serious salarv injustices, are found all along the teacher pay scale, he pointed out No wonder every school board m the nation has trouble in recruiting teachers of needed competence, character anrl citizenship." he said. "Our pennv-wisc and pound-foolish altitude toward our educational system is one of the tragedies of America. "Compare the cost of better education with the cost of crime For every school teacher at work, there arc seven persons who have been arrested. For every Allege student Trx-re are 10 potential criminals." Schools can reduce the ranks of future criminals. Hoover continued, by teaching students "to live as well as to make a living." .BITTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWR y Million Nazis To Be Forgiven, McNarney Says HERLfN.
