Mr. Hoover placed a larg? :harc of the blame or this dthn fS"/"^ i" larents and moie lefinitely upon he mothers of the girls involved. Being the father of a teen age boy I feel tliat I am in a position to put my two cents worth on this really alarming Fritzius situation. Who can deny that the 1 situation is most alarming, when j the head of our Federal Bureau of Investigation, a man who has perhaps seen more crime and had more close contact with criminals than any other one person in the world today, feels the situation to be of such significance that lie pleads with American mothers to awaken to their own delinquency FIRST! I dearly love my fourteen year old boy[ His regard for nie; our comradeship; the secrets which we share; my understanding as no person in the world, (even his mother) of his personal problems, problems that are peculiar to BOYS; niy ability to aid and to properly advise him iti the solving of these problems. — all ot these things, I say without hesitation, are as sacred to me that they are without any doubt, .second only and akin to my love and duty towards my Maker! Yes. truly, my greatest joy is in my boy. Why have I so strongly stressed in the proceeding paragraph my feeling for my boy, when Ihis article is primarily about teen asje girls and their mothers? Just this: What kind of a father would T be were I l:> set an example of lewdness and careless morals before Ihis boy who is just now at his most impressionable age? Yet this is exactly wln-.t Mr. Hoover is laying at the floors of many American mothers in Iheir relationship towards Ihnir teen age daughters! Many mothers arc misled in their eagerness to see their teen a^u daughter associate with the f ' 0 . called "popular" or "smart" s-t. I am perfectly aware that this article is Ruin;; to do mo no good in some v quarters. I am also f.imiliar wif.i' I the a^e old rm;ument that limes!
