J., MONDAY, JANUARY 16, 1933 Three 1 1 . f V : V 4 r r. is -I r i J 100 Children Arrested In City Each Month, Study Shows Juvenile 4'Ycar Survey Reveals Delinquency Grows In Depression , MOST " OFFENDERS FROM EIGHTH WARD Surveys Crime $50,000 Lost Annually; 32 Families Held Worst Cases 1 An average of 100 children ar arrested every month In Camden; according to a nurvey of juvenile delinquency in the city, completed ves- terday and covering a period of four ana one-nan years. The survey, made, public by C Tau! Nay, school attendance super- vior and member of the Juvenile Delinquency Committee named " re cently by Mayor Roy It. Stewart, auio oiscioses mat: Present-day economic conditions are Increasing the number "of delinquents. During the past four and a half year delinquent children from 32 Camden families alone have cost the e.tty, county and state $50,-000 or more. During the- same period 3637, Juveniles bava figured in 526 arrests. Of the 2642 arrested more thai, once, 23 percent have furnished tha city with one-half of Its juvenile crime problem. The Eighth ward contributes mot of the offenders. Children of the ages of 16 and 1? lead all others in tha number of arrests. A total of 121 were arrested as drunk and disorderly. Camden Is far behind Jersey City, Newark and many other North Jersey cities in its methods of coping with the problem. The report of the survey on which the committee will base most of its work, has been in preparation three months under Nay's direction The survey results are not vet in the hands of the committee, and rec ommendations will follow a study of trie report. .Members of Committee Members of the committee, in ad dition to Nay, are: Dr. Leon N. Ntulen. superintendent of schools; P'.ice Judge Garfield Pancoast ; Cap- of Police Arthur Colsey, and in Lime T. Osier, retired school mcipal. i The survey includes children be- j twfen the ages of 6 and 'JO. While the work thus far Is not exhaustive. Nay said, the present figures reveal an alarming situation. TThere has been a slow but det'i-nite increase in the delinquency problem in the city." Nay said, "and figures for the lirst half of 1932 indicate the total will be increased; for that year. "It is not surprising to us to lt?irn that present conditions may be responsible for a large part of the increase. Present-day distractions are i. -setting mature adult minds, and t; v consequent effects upon juveniles is vrn greater and more devastating in its i.Uimate result. "There :.- much that can be said about tr-.e problem. All of us are more or '.ess to blame for this problem of delinquency. This is not a children's world. It is owned and operated by and for adults. We We in control and whichever way the ln'e of these children are headed, the prime responsibility is ours. ' Serlu Study Needed "It behooves every thinking citi-len of Camden to consider quietly and seriously what should be done and what can be done to remedy the situation. It cannot be settled at one conference or ten thousand conferences. It will require carefully pUnned and concerted action. Our ' pians should be twofold: First, the preventive aids, and, secondly, the corrective or remedial phase. We have found that we need to work in certain well-defined areas .1 concentrate on particular fanii-l.- which are sending forth this r by-product to prey upon so- i--ty. The committee found there v.. re ganirs of loafers in these dis-ti.ts playing cards or shooting crtp.- on the corners, and that the j-ojner boys soon joined the older en? in the.-e pastimes. Those are some :' '.'lie things we saw. The ne: step is logically how to grapple Wit 1 It." "I :-. ked on the methods now in use ;n N .Hi, Jersey cities to combat juvenile delinquency." Nav said.

Twelve of these families are Polish, eight are American, six Italian and six colored. Families Centre of Stu'dy These families, an important source of Camden's delinquency problem, are receiving concentrated attention from the committee, Nay said. Nine of the families are located in the Thirteenth ward, eight are in the Eighth wardr four are in the Seventh ward: three are in the First ward: two each are in the Third and Fourth wards, and one each in the Fifth. Sixth, Eleventh and Twelfth wards. The average number of times each of the families have changed their addresses in the past four and half years is 4.2. "One might say that by controlling these families, half of the city's juvenile deliqunency problem would be solved." Nay said, "but it cannot he done as "simply as that. Each time a juvenile is sent to a state reformatory, the average cost is $450. The figures show that 11 boys from these 32 families are now in detention homes, while 86 other children from these same families have been in the county detention home or state reformatoriees. The tofal on the record alone for their maintenance in state homes, to say nothing of court costs and similar items, 'amounts to S46.4oO. Adding the damage tbey have been responsible for. the sum would be many thousands more. Kijrhth Ward Lead The standing of the wards in the point of number of arrests, according to population ratio, show the Eighth ward as providing, the most delinquency cases. This ward furnished the city S51 of its 5426 cases. The Third , ward was second with 497: the Fifth ward was third with 589: the Fourth ward was fourth with 313: the Seventh ward was fifth with 59$: the First ward was sixth with 330: the Thirteenth ward was seventh with 727: the Sixth ward was eighth with 275; the Second ward was ninth with 222: the Twelfth ward was tenth with 298: the Tenth ward was eleventh with 197: the Eleventh ward was twelfth with 249: the Ninth ward was thirteenth with 103. and the Fourteenth ward was fourteenth with 119. Nearly a score of persons were injured in automobile accidents on South Jersey highways over the weekend.' - y I Four persons, including a three-month-old baby, narrowly escaped death at Absecon when their automobile overturned four times in. avoid ing a collision, - !

The number of arrests on other charges in the order of their rank follows: On suspicion, 38S; material witness. 350: breaking and entering, 2W; malicious mischief, 277. truancy, 274; assault and battery, 259; motor viola tions. 243: incorrigible. io: a run and disorderly, 121; runaway, 110; vagrancy, 103, and miscellaneous.

The ratio of increase between 1928 and 1929 is for more than in that of succeeding years, a significant fact to support the belief this sudden increase began v.ith the economic depression.

BOROUGH INCORPORATION URGED IN MAYS LANDING Mays Landing, Jan. 16 Incorporar tion of Mays Landing as a borough again is being considered as a means of tax relief, but what the rest of Hamilton township would do after fhe town's withdrawal is a prob- lm- Mays Landing pays most of the township taxes and has most of its asset The township is said to be the larget in New Jersey- covering about 73;000-a.cres.

At 1:30 o clock this morning the two' men walked up to the ticket booth and pointed revolvers at the cashier.

Weeks was captured, Although he was shot in the left arm Flaville jumped into an automobile parked at the foot of the ele vated steps and sped away.

It was Flaville who was riding in a machine stolen in a garage holdup by the two men several hours previously. Flaville admitted his identity and was taken to the Episcopal Hospital where his wouna was dressed.

There have been many; expressions of regret that this improvement had been dubbed "Lake Depression' and suggestions were received . by the Township Committee from residents of Moorestown for the adoption of a -more satisfactory name for the lake which transformed unsightly marih land into a beautiful expanse of water. ' , - ; . "Lake Strawbridge was suggested n by Dr. Joseph Stokes, president of I the Burlington County Trust Com- r pany, and James M. Conroy, proprie- j tor of" the Service , Pharmacy. The t body of water is named after the late Edward R. Strawbridge,; a member of the firm of Strawbridge - fc Clothier, who took more than usual interest in civic affairs after i ; moving to Moorestown. ; He gave ( j freely of his time and money to every 't- project for betterment and his too early death cut short many oppor tunities for sevice on which he had , set his heart. ' A large section of the ground occu pied by the .lake was acquired by him and - before his death had en tertained ideas of using it in some civic project. This has finally been j realized by his widow, Mrs. Brophy, , who donated, to the .township some i twenty-five acres of land for the lake and given freely of her resources to relieve the present situation, and has offered much other ground for free use as gardens for the needy.
