SWAN BECOMES TEMPLE COACH Assistant For past six Years on Grid Staff Succeeds 'Fop' Warner, Resigned Philadelphia, Jan: 31 CAP) Fred Swan, for the last six years an assistant, was appointed head football coach at Temple university today to succeed Glenn S. "Pop" Warner, who announced his resignation at his home in Palo Alto, Cal., Sunday night. The university football committee gave Swarj, former Stanford star, a .three - year contract. The salary was not disclosed, but a university spokesman said it probably would be $7,500 a year. Swan's selection to replace the 68 - year - old Warner occasioned little surprise.

He served as line coach at Colgate and Wisconsin before coming to Temple. Both Swan and backfieid Coach J. Chafes "Chuck" Winterburn, also a Stanford graduate, signed three - year contracts two years ago at the same time as Warner.

In an informal talk on crime and criminals, Superior Court Judge Leo Carr, formerly a Burlington attorney, outlined before members of the Rotary club here last night at their regular weekly dinner meeting some of the problems and experiences a "freshman" judge faces. This is Judge Carr's first term on the bench. Commenting on juvenile delinquency, the speaker observed that it seems to spring for the most part from cities and towns. "I have yet to have a boy or young man from the farm to stand before me chaiged. with robbery or breaking and entering," lie declared. "Other crimes, perhaps - drinking, lighting but not the taking of other people's property." Idleness Blamed Idleness, the jurist said, causes iiuch of the malicious mischief that lands young men in jail. He said that while he approved of the idea behind child labor laws, lie believed that nossibiy a modifica tion of them so that boys out of school but not yet old enough to seek and obtain employment could be allowed to work might appreciably curtail the delinquency praoiem. judge Carr also express ed the opinion "inform ally that the educational method in vogue now oi scgregann die tu - wiiter stu - C uts or those from homes of uplifting environment' from these v,:jo arc - k'.s: - ; ailcpL. nipnln';.' or have not known the proper home training might be at fault in not givinn the less nrivileced Dunil "the democratic chance" to rub elbows with others, and thus to absorb some of their outlook on life. Speaking of the recent wave of roadhouse brawlings and homicid al violence in which Burlington played a prominent part when the late Sheriff M. P. .Robertson ana oaicer sonmc vaushau. well as a bandit, were slain, the jurist urged "all decent citizens and civic organizations with their influence and power of shaping legislation" to support a bill before the legislature now calling for strict licensing and supervising of all roadhouses. tourist camps and similar enterprises. He branded these places ''breeding houses of crime and immorality" and said that power should be given county commissioners to prohibit anyone with a criminal record or an "unsatisfactory" reputation from oper - Favore "Undercover Men" Judge Carr also endorsed a rent movement to obtain more undercover men" lor city and county . law. . enforcement administrations. "An .Officer cannot rtp - tect crime all too often because he is known as an officer, and evildoers will refrain hi his presence," the speaker said. "But If the public will demand it, provision will readily be, made In city and county budgets for the hiring of undercover men, clothed with authority a""w i nuje as onicers of the law." Judge Carr was introduced by Rotarian Reid. Maynard, who was ui onarge oi me program. President Vitus Holt presided over the meeting. CHILD'S HAND HURT WHEN CAUGHT IN CAR DOOR SUNDAY A M.

Police Hunt Man As Unsuspecting Victim of Rabies Philadelphia, Jan. 31 - CAP) - Fennsylvania state police were engaged today in a race against time warn an uniaentinea man mat dog which bit him a week ago was. infected with rabies. The man drove away from a roadside grill - at nearby Exton last Tuesday, apparently unconcerned about a wound which the dog Inflicted on his hand. The same dog bit the daughter pf the' grill's owner, Larry. Polite, and yesterday reports on a laboratory, test showed the. dog to. be infected. For Polite's daughter, the discovery came in time for effective treatment. In most cases, physicians say, the Pasteur treatment is effective only if taken within 10 days after infection. With out three aays left to warn the stranffer. the do - lice launched a widespread search for" him. Their only tangible clue was that his car earned .New - jersey license plates, i lin, representative of the French air ministry, was a passenger in a late type bombing plane which crashed at Los Angeles last weefc. The plane, constructed under gen eral designs lumished Dy the army, was being tested in prepar - . ation for entry into competition for an army contract. No Secret Equipment General Malin Craig, atmy chief of staff, told the committee List week that there was no equipment on the plane that the army considered of a secret nature. Edison testified before the house naval committee in response to bipartisan demands for m - .'e com - plete statements of foreign policy with regard to the project.

Edison said the proposed development would permit operation of planes, both naval and commercial, that may be in the Guam area in the future. "Facilities for the operation of airplanes from Guam will acid materially to the defensive power of the fleet," he added. "It is impossible to look into the "uture and see whether or not there will be need for further development of Guam as an airplane base, but we may hope that the future international situation will make it unnecessary to use Guam except as a commercial airport."
