Postwar Crime which the situation demands—prevention and reclamation. Though the causes of most juvenile dclimjiienry can be found at home, all parents do not have the mental, 'emotional, or economic equipment to cope with U;o problem. Communities must concern themselves with jl. Drtconl bousing, adequate schools with adequately-paid teachers, and free recreational frtcil- itio.s are some of the thrice familiar but often neglected weapons. More serious nncl more neglected is the problem of making good citi/ens out of youths who already fjnvc police records. Countless criminal histories point up the great need for intelligent, sympathetic, well-trained probation nnd parole officers. Treatment during tho social "convalescences" ot n young lyffi'iuliT is clearly u neglected science. The llllfi crime figures give warning that a job must, be done. Thougli it is difficult, our present economic climate of full employment and reasonable prosperity makes this seem a propitious time to begin it, in earnest. Japanese Schoolboy m " VIEWS OF OTHERS Trouble If Spending Isn't Curbed t During the war a good many law enforcement officers, sociologists, and just plain people were predicting that tliere would be a postwar- crime wave. Statistics for 1946, release/! by tlio FBI, indicate that they were right. .Crime, up .7.6 per cent over 1S1-15, now stands jit a 10-year high. 7 It seems likely that the situation is even wbrso than 'expected. For the predictions must surely have considered the factor of a widespread, if temporary, postwar unemployment. But it's safe to say that few offenders are* robbing and stealing today because \Vork isn't to be had. So the major causes of present crime must be social and emotional, rather than economic. 7 Some of the causes are not hard to! identify. Home training suffered in many families during the war when " mothers 'joined the ranks of the worker^ to help ease the manpower shortage or help support a family whose ' falhcr was in the service. Thousands of- schoolteachers left the classroom fo|' better-paying jobs. Their replace- ^ments were often inferior in training as: well as? number. | Military requirements thinned the •rajiks of law enforcement agencies, wfiich in .many cases are still under- stjffcd. A : nd then, as FRI Director J. Kcjgar Hoover put it, effects of llu> "4'irit of wartime abandon" have not . yet run 'their course. Teenagers who gr6w up in the emotionally charged atmosphere of the war may be finding it hard to make adjustments and settle downs'Many young veterans are at loose ends. , All this is reflected in the accent on youth which the 1046 crime figure? give. More. 21-year-olds were arrested than any "other age group. They were followed by those of 22, 23, 24 and 20 years. 'Youths under 21 accounted for ^16.9 per cent of the total arrested. There arc two remedies, of course, Nothing is harder lo check than nubile spunil- iiilj. Those who benefit by it will squawk like n. deprived of n stick of candy if there Is any attempt to cut down their funds.; :in<l pressure groups are rnltlcrl lo supiwrt their derannitc, Ingenious arguments are cooked up for continuing expenditures no longer needed, nnd wastes are skillfully hidden ui financial reiwrl.s.

Ihit proposals to reduce that huge sum by a billion or so are piclured to the coirilry as virtually traitorous. Our defense would be crippled, we avo lold.

Bine-': there were (,'uly two sui-h employes for every 15 .soldiers during the war. tho scna-.or believes that the umber can now be reduced wilh no injury whatever to onv national defense. He cites another n'.ther startling comparison. The warlime overall cost per man in uniform was $fi.9Gfl. for all needs—munitions, planes, ships, everything. Now. in peacetime, the military forces want Sfl.^90 per man in imhorm— only $170 le:i'i thnn the war figure. Our nalional security requires more than armament. Senator Byvd reminds. Equally vital is the. nalion's economic strength.

These demands are: 1—Ten billion dollars worth ot German reparations for Russia. 2 —-Raising the. German level of industry lo give more production from which Russia can collect more reparations. 3—End the .American- British merger of occupation zones fn Germany. 4—TUissiau participation in control of Ruhr and Rhineland. > At first glance it may appear that those foiiKKlcmaiuls hopelessly divide tho Big Pour and make impossible secrclary of Slate Marshall's (ask of trying to get agreement on Germany's future. This the dim view of Moscow developments. A more hopeful slant is that, thi: Russian demands constitute ar ama/ing confession that Einssia'?- own internal economy is in tcrri ble condition. If (his is the true stale of affairs, it should strengthen Marshall's bargaining position instead of weakening it. Arguments in support of this theory go like this: Immediately alter the end of the var in Europe, Ihe Russians start- d lo dismantle German and Aus- rian factories in their v.ones These seizures threatened to vrcck central European economy. As time has gone on. Ihe Rus- ii.ins have been learning that mov- ng factoi'ies was not enough. "Mov- IH! a mill or any kind took it away 'mm natural sources of materials :i(! labor supply. Russian unskilled :ibor could not operate Ihc machinery. There are known cases in which he Russians moved mills from .heir zones to Russia, found they could not operate them, then mov- them back to let Gorman labor run Ihctn. The Russians, of course, lor* the production, but that's what they wanted in the first place. SWAP GOODS FOR FOOD This may be the key to the whole F>usEwn economic situation. The Soviet is unquestionably starved for goods—hard and soft. It needs iron and steel and textiles and clothing and shoes and every manufactured product you can name. It needs 410 billion worth. .This Is a staggering order, but it may strengthen Marshall's bargaining position at Moscow in this way: The Polsdam reparations deal provided that in exchange for 15 ssians have discovered they do- Vi, want factories but do want their pi-eduction, the Americans, British, and French may be in a position to strike a new bargain. They oa'i swap goods for food. NO PRODUCTION, NO FOOD Food is the key to the whole Ger- r.'.iin recovery problem, as ex-President Hoover has just pointed out. Supplying the British and Arncri- Liin zones with imported food is what costs the American and British taxpayers money. The level of Gorman industrial production set by the Allied Control council last year is based on German steel capacity of 7.S million lens a year and actual production or 5.8 million tons. But today pro- duclion has not, .reached a rate of ed under a lid, it may be more dif- | ^"ks And ficult lo extract, closing the eye and suddenly opening it may dis- lo'lgc it. If ordinary methoris fall, a physician should be consulted. QUESTION: I am pregnant. Are there nny exercises that I may do besides walking during the remain- in:; period of pregnancy? ANSWER: Pregnant women are urged to lend normal lives. No special exercises are recommended. Walking i.s a good form of exercise fot everyone. wins three times out of five. When C and D play. C wins two times out of three, when A and C play, A wins one time out of two, and when A and D play, A wins three times out of four. In the semifinals of a tournament, A plays 11 and C plays D. The winners play in Ihe finals. What is tile probability A will win the tournament?" The Coast Cuard says that's simple, if you know advanced algebra, analytic geometry nnd cal:ulus. Here's another question: l- The . wheels of a car arc two and a halt feet in diameter: if the wheels do not slip and .make six turns per second, how far does the car gJ per second?" Quickly. I guess I'll never make a Coast Guardsman because I obviously can't count. I dirt think, though, , that I know something about Eng- I lish literature. After looking over 1 the three-hour English examination I'm not so sure. I Future gnarders of the coast \ must know whether the dirty Brit- j ish coaster in Minefield's poem, j Cargoes, carried ammunition,' san- ivory, apes and pea- did Arnold, Shelley, Fifteen Youths Obtain $80,000 In Raid on Bonk JERUSALEM, March 25. (UP) — million tons. The goal was set low to keep Germany's war potential down. But now even the British are supporting Russian demands that German steel production must be raised to 10 to 12 million tons a year. vFh a corresponding increase in all Gennan industrial production. Production can't be raised at all, however, till there is more food. The catch is that the Russians per cent of Germany's excess fac- j m.iy not be nble to supply the food the I from their zone of Germany bc- nccupalion and move them to Rus- | Russians more factories. If now the ;orics, the Russians would give western occupation zones food from the Soviet's agriculturally rich eastern zone, it was when the Russians failed lo come through with (he food that the Americans and British shut down on delivering the cause they need it for their own people at home. If that is.the situation, then the Russians arc in really bad economic condition, and the position of the western powers is by comparison nil the better for bargaining. 15 Years Ago In Blylheville — •Mrs. J.

Byron, Coleridge, or Keats write 'A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever"? Some of these questions I bet Secretary of Treasury John Snyder, the commander-in-chief of the Coast Guard, himself, can't answer. In the novel. Green 'Mansions, were Rima's clothes made of flax, damask, cobwebs, grasses, or stardust? Hey, Mr. Secretary? And was thi! work of the painter, Turner, defended by Rosotti, Pater. Swinburne, Morris, or Ruskin? Was Caliban u sprite, king ot the fairies, servant to Orjeron, a monster or a satyr? Was Orlseldn noted for her bad disposition, sense of humor, \vuiinlness, patience, or intolerance? Coast Guard, I don't even know who was Griselda. I flunk the English -test, loo. To become a Coast Guard cadet a voung fellow not only must be much smarter than Othman, but better-looking, and healthier. He can't be too young or too old, too tall or to short, and if he's tat tround the middle, he hasn't a chance. The acaocmy has produced finally a handsome brochure about Jic advantages of studying in New London. "Discipline is rigidly military in character," the book says.
