Columbia have acted recently to crack down on ?ex liends. A congressman wants (he FBI to help protect children from sex crimes. Thirty Hirer stales have not Hone anything of late to deal with sex Ufaycr.s, perverts, and oilier sexual abnormal*. An Associated Press survey of (he •18 states and the District followed a recent wave of rape, sex murders, and weird sexual crimes.

Rape Increases Tiie Federal Bureau of Investigation has reported an increase of 1 ii per cent in rape throughout the nation for the first half of 1949. compared with the same period last year, riie Bureau added thai, then- sta- tisUcs deal only with "rapes known to police." and show (hat such crimes shout up 50 per cent in 10 years. Many of the recent crimes involve little children as victims. Rep. Chelf (D-Ky) said recently that he will try to make it a federal offense to molest a child. He said that he believed such action would be as effective at curbing degenerates who prey on children as the Lindbergh anti-kiduaping law has been in controlling kidnapping. Also Federal Law The congressman said he had been shocked to read "horrible ae- connls of the ever-increasing brutal slayings of this nation's children." He said "apparently the state laws are insufficient." Gov. G. Mcnncn Williams of Michigan has said that Ihe sex crime siluation must be solved: "It is not a problem that can wait." In several states efforts arc being made to have the sex offender treated as a mental case, subject to care by physicians, rather than to cold, impersonal, penal sentence with no rehabilitation chances.

He said, however, he felt there were adequate laws to deal with sex offenders if they were enforced. Judge Adrian Bunnclly, a veteran member of the Philadelphia court of common pleas told the Associated Press: "We don't need new laws we need more trained psychiatrists. Whether a boy is abnormal or asocial is a strictly medical problem." Judge Donnelly, CO, added (hat he didn't think there were any more sex crimes now than when he was a boy. Nowadays, there are simply more detailed police records, he added. TWO TO SIX TOGS 42-6 By Sue Burnett A during litle dress and pantie combination for the younger .girls Of Hie family.
