(Courier News Photo) Hal Boyle NEW YORK (AP) - Remarks that lead only to trouble: "Well, after all, why not?" ''I don't know why junior behaves that way. He certainly didn't get it from my side of fee family." "As a respected leader of! your community, you are one of a select few to whom this pioneering offer is being extended." "Which do you want me to do — drive the car or listen to you?" "Gee, boss, is that as far as you can hit the ball? .1 can do better than that with a pool cue." I "I guess another little one' won't do us any harm." I "I was cleaning out the attic, j and I ran across this old bundle of your love letters." "If you're that tired of washing dishes, why don't yon jus! throw them out the window?" "Remember, if you ever need help, don't forget to call on me." "Is there anything else I can do for you now?" "Do you do anything during j the day except look at soap operas on television?" ! "It is a pretty lung story, bu! I do think it is worth the telling." "I know it is none of my business, but if 1 were you, I'd—" "I understand you are taking' karate lessons. What have you learned so far? * * * ! "Don't worry. I'll fix it my- '• self later when there's more j time. i "I'm sure there's enough gas in the tank to gel us there. I j filled it only yesterday — or! was it the day before? "Oh, hand me the knife. It certainly doesn't take much brains to carve a turkey." "Why don't we just appoint a committee?" "Don't just stand there. Do something." "If you don't mind me offering a suggestion—" "They'll never find a way to automate my job. I'm already the indispensable machine around here." "Why not p ark right here? The odds are a hundred to one that we won't get a ticket." "Now, hold on there just a second, Buster." "Why can't you be like other wives?" "Why can't you be like other husbands?" "Frankly, I've never tackled anything quite like this before, but-" "Let's settle this outside — right now." — by max itunn — A jarring note in the Christmas season in the Boolheel this year seems to be more Mian the ordinary amount of petty items connected with the yuletide. Such as the theft of a number of dolls from a float in t h e Ihristmas parade at Caruthersville which were to be given to under - priviledged children, and [he theft of outdoor Christmas decorations in several Bootheel towns. In Hayti, one of two wreaths attached to the front door of the Hayli Methodist Church was removed and later found being used as a plaything on the playground of the Hayti Elementary School across the street. A number of homeowners report bulbs being stolen from outdoor strings of lights. Fortunately, through the cooperation of several citizens and good work by the Caruthersville police, most of the stolen dolls were recovered and the suspects picked up, and it was discovered that they were not youngsters. In years past, with very little of this sort of thing occurring in the Bootheel, we citizens had come .to believe that it was jrincipally a situation in the arge cities, but we Boothaelers are going to have to change our thinking. More of it i6 taking place each year in our region, arid to head it off it appears to us thai more cooperation is needed between the public and the various police departments. Most of the vandalism and petty stealing can be ascribed to children and teenagers who lack sufficient home life and training by their parent or parents — if (here are two of them. How to reach these mothers and fathers of wayward children has been, is and will continue to be the major difficulty in curbing juvenile crime in the Bootheel or anywhere else.. One way to help in controlling it might be for the general public take more interest in observing juvenile activities that appear to be leading to vandalism or other petty crime, especially late at night, and making reports to the police so they can start watching too. Youngsters walking the streets after 10 p.m. usually are uncontrolled by their mothers and-or fathers, and what they are up to from that hour on ought to be information for the police. No Bootheel town can have enough police officers to patrol a whole community 24 hours a day. It takes public cooperation to get the job done. The cops have to have eyes and ears all over town to help them. .
