MOKPAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1980 Senate Committee to Inquire Into Basic Cause of Crime By JOHN CHADWICK WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (AP) — The. Senate •' crime Investigating Committee will follow up a survey of juvenile delinquency with an Inquiry Into the basic causes of crime. Chairman Kefauver <D-Tenn) said today. •. . , As (or the probers'. general.find- ings In the nationwide crime picture, Kelauver said yesterday his Xvip hat • found organized crime frWld* a "very sinister and very great" Influence on public officials. Kt told, a ,televislon audience that "organized crime In the country today would • make kindergarten play out of the operations of the Capone boys." • . • < .'••' • His special.Senate committee has facts to prove that well-organized, kough groups of criminals are operating throughout the country »'ith "interlocking ownership and directorship between ail groups." Kefauver said." .... He. declined to say whether there Is ' • one "overlord" of organized gambling and rackets. Committee Aim Stated The aim. of his committee is nol "a crusade against gambling as such." he continued, but rather to uncover ."the blgt(me organized operation, that jn many, cases has become so powerful. that local law enforcement officers can't do anything abOUt :it." > : The Senator said Chicago was "perhaps the • one most important center of the criminal activities." although there'were extensive organizations in New York. Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and many other cities. His committee : published over the weekend a 250-page study of Juvenile delinquency, ..with special attention on crime comic books. Despite some exceptions here and Mitre, the report reflected a general IBsiiriK off in Juvenile delinquency since the war. But FBI Director^!. Edgar Hoover said the incidence'of crime among young people still Is "abnormally high." The consensus of those replying to a- committee' questlonaire was thai crime comics are not directly related .to Juvenile delinquency.' Commltl«« Draws No Conclusions .. The committee Itself drew no conclusions, simply publishing the answers it received from more than 80 Juvenile court Judges, child welfare ..workers, .probation officers, police arid prison authorities, child psychiatrists, publishers of crime comics and others. Kefauver told reporters his gen- , eral Impression after reading most ol the replies was that "the good comics are healthful, the middle ones.are so-so and the bad ones are deleterious." . 11 Kefauver (linefeed that his corn- mitee plans hearings on the undefT lying" cartses of J criminal--«cttTities »nd he added .that Juvenile delinquency will be given further attention then. f he survey on juvenile delin- ncy found'most of the authorities responding to the committee questionnaire agreeing that parents have 'more to answer for than do crime comic books. 'Although a few' advocated outlawing crime, comics and some others proposed some sort of censor ship or voluntary control, the dominant view was that a ban on such publications would have no marked effect on Juvenile delinquency. FBI; Director Hoover was among those who. doubted that any appreciable decline in juvenile delinquency would result from denying crime oomtcs to children . The basic cause of Juvenile delinquency, .he said, is "the lack of a. sense of.morBl responsibility among youth." And he. added that the place to start instilling that Is in the family circle. fudges to Visit 'Live.Afr.Home' Contest Entrants A Judging team In the stale- wide Uv«-at-Home Contest for Negro fanners will visit the homes ot four Mississippi County entrant* tomorrow.

Eisenhower Continues to Deny He's to Head European Army "HANDS-OFF" FLIGHT PLAN—The pilot and co-pilot ol the Navy's XHJP-1 helicopter stick both hands out the window! to show that the craft is flying "on instruments."

Got Rationing Unlikely LOS ANGELES, Nov. 13 .«*/— Gasoline .rationing is unlikely in the foreseeable future, says an oil executive here for the 30th annual meeting of the American Pet- rpJBm Institute, opening today. OT, Robert E. Wilson, chairman of Standard Oil Company of Indiana, made one qualification; he »aid he was excluding all-out war. OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 'l3. (/P) —Gen. Dwight Eisenhower,, who daily has to deny he has been named to hend an Atlantic defense army, insists this Is no time 'to discuss the matter. "There is no Atlantic Pact army at present to lead."

But he sal'd there was" a misunderstanding about those remarks. The war-time European Allied Commander - In - Chief laughingly shrugged off a . question as to whether he would be a Republican Presidential candidate in 1952. As for the Republican gains in last Tuesday's elections, he remarked: "As a soldier. I am not called on to interpret the election results." Eisenhower told newsmen the purpose of his Southewestern tour was to meet with Columbia Alumni Manpower Must Serve Economy, Armed Forces, Says General Hershey CHICAGO, Nov. 13. (AP)—Maj. Gen Lewis B.
