What happens, along the line between babylu.od and iulullhocxl, to turn a man into an enemy of society'.' Why does one man grow up into .a useful citizen and another into a j;Hrij;stevY' If (here is any way in which wi> can develop more of Hie first kind and fewer of the second? When you t'cl to wondering aliing these lines, it's often useful lo have a look, at juvenile court records. The?e will show you some rallier surprising [hints. * * * They sbow. for one Uiiuir, that the great cause of crime is—poverty. Not lite poverty that makes a limn steal to. get bread for his family, but the poverty condemns a child to be bronchi up in a-congested Khun, witli the street for his playground and his whole environment u subtle but powerful force lo teach him that organized society is hi.s enemy. Look al these figures from the jnvei|- ile court of a representative city such as C'levchuul There nre two comparable congest; ed areas in that city, each inhabited by people of the same racial stock. In one area the people are fairly well off; in normal time:.;, the average family income there ranges from ?1.500 lo $2,500 a year. In the other area Ihe people arc poor, with average family incomes running Itetween ?50() and 51,'IOU a year. The more prosperous area hist year had one delinquent boy to every 910 inhabitants—yfl delinquents, altogether, for the 26,000-odd people in the area. ' * ' •'•<•• The poorer area bad one delinipienl boy to every J8H inhabitants ;t |ul;d of 154 delinquents for the ^R.OOU residents.

A West Sitler named Richard Johnson one night surprised four young houd- lums robbing Hit! store which is under bis apartment. Keing a war veteran, Johnson isn't afraid of a light ; so lie waded in, rounded up Ihe lour single- handed, and turned them over lo the police. .Next day a mysterious stranger warned him not to testify against them iu ccurt or he would be lakeu for :i ride. Johnson . laughed al him. A couple of nights later three men jumped on him near Ids home, to put Hie threat into execution. Johnson starl- t'd his lists swinging—anil pretty soon tht'.-e three wore in police cells, along wilh I lie other four. These fearsome city gangsters evidently aren't quite so lough, al'U'r all-if one lone cilixun, euiiippi'il only with courage mid a good physique, call handle seven of them. More Men in the Air Rectimmeiidalioii by Ihe linker committee, that the United States proceed lo build and maintain an army air force ."second to none" anil llisil it begin ill once by acquiring 1000 new lighting planes, points us in the direction of a slate of military preparedness such a< \ve bad not previously thought necessary- II is still a little narly to lell just how big a role the air force will play in any I'ulure war. Nevertheless, il does scorn eerlaiti that, a tuition protected by a navy as large as ours, and by tin army air force as powerful as the one called for by this committee, ought lo be as secure from attack or invasion as any nation can be. And there is an odd thing about this aerial defense; it can be built up and maintained without bringing with it the evils of "militarism" such as would inevitably accompany a corrc- sixvmling growth in thr. land l avmy. We can have the world's premier air Heel without actually increasing the number of men under arms very substantially. If (he army were bein;: in- errar.pd in proportion.
