"Show me a hardened criminal and I'll show you one who has been delinquent in youth and a problem all the way through." "The problem of the delinquent child is a Job for the community.

Roosevelt Orders Investigation of Medicine Academy Charges of 'Deliberate Malpractice' in Paraly- sis Epidemic Made State Health Commissioner Par rs n. at the Instigation of Governor Roosevelt, has begun an invesuga twn of charges of malpractice aaainst a committee of the New York Academy of Medicine. The charges were made by Dr. E. M. Josephson in a telegram to the Governor. Dr. Josephson wirea: "I respectfully urge investigation into deliberate malpractice perpetrated upon the victims of the last poliomyelitis (infantile paralysis) enidemic bv the poliomyelitis com mittee of the New York Academy of Medicine. "Before the New York County Medical Society meeting of Sept. 16 Professor Aycoek confessed that although It was known that normal adult blood Is of the same value as Immune serum approximately, the committee undertook to deprive a large group of victims of the disease of whatever benefit which might accrue irom the use of serum in poliomyelitis in order to conduct a needless experiment on the victims of the disease with proper controls, while at the same time compelling the subject of the experiment to pay exorbitant prices for scrum which they had obtained from the 'public in most cases at no cost." Dr. Linsly R. Williams, director of the Academy of Medicine, said the committee had treated about 500 persons, one-third of whom were treated free. The balance, he said, paid from $5 to $15. He said the committee was put to considerable expense In collecting the serum and administering tha work. It actually lost money on every treatment, he continued, and many so-called donors were paid for their blood. EDtTATOR SHOT TO DEATH - Winfield, Kan., Nov. 18 UP) W. W. McConnell, 53, superintendent of Winflcld schools, was found shot to death on the high school campus her late last night under circumstances which led officers to believe he had been slain. The fatal bullet wound was in the back of his head. KNOWS SECRET gif, wtsJ , -: 7 I if -. II lm I fh 1 Mmmmm lil pllllli Methuselah, the 600-plus-year-old turtle at the Pet Show, is aroused from his normal motiomessness and thrusts out his neck to find out why. The show is on at Madison Square Garden. Show Pets Won't Act ... According to Kipling Bozo, the Elephant, Wants His Milk; Tiger, His Neighbor at Garden, Wants Sleep; Neither Gives Whoop Ahout 'Getting' Other By WILMAM WEER There is 'a young elephant in the basement ol" Madison Square Garden, where the third annual pet show opened yesterday with No, not a bang this time, but a lot of squeals, grunts, shrieks, whistles, meows and bow-wows and cock-a-doo-dle-doos, fluttering of feathers and flipping of fins. The young elephant is called Bozo and he is six months old and knee-high to a piccaninny. He afternoon and last night was ade-weaves back and forth and sidewlse, 1 ua,te' and 11 wil1 be repeated today much like older elephants do. In hls!and thrU8h Priday nlBnt' i..n.h f .,, V.- I. .,... cute, I guess, what with the fuzz of gray hairs on his hide and his undersized trunk. They do say that Bozo is the smallest elephant In captivity, but he was not, when i saw him, like the elephants you used to read about in Kipling's stories about elephants. Just Neighbors For there was a young tiger snoozing right next to him, within easy reach of Bozo's trunk. He was such an awfully young tiger that he hadn't yet been christened, and he was about the size of a large housecat. Well, to everybody's surprise, little tiger, tiger kept right on snoozing on his saw-dust floor and he didn't leap on Bozo's neck and try to finish him. And Bozo, for his part, didn't run amuck, as all the Kipling elephants do when thev smell a tiger, and stamp his pads and roar and try to finish HIM. No, they simply snubbed each other right there in the open. And when Bo7x did. at last, let out a roar, it wasn't red meat he was roaring for, but diluted milk, which an attendant fed him out of a metal tube. ' And young tlgpi lapped his milk out of a pan, and went back to snooze. It was a little, I think, disappointing. For If you're going to take home a tiger to pet, you'd want him to be, I should Imagine, like the rip-snorting Princeton tiger of several football seasons back. And the same thing would apply to a pet elephant. Acts His Age But. there were other pets at the Pet Show which acted more as you would expect them to act. There was Methuselah, the pet turtle estimated (by the Pet Show press agent) to be between 600 and 1.000 years old. Methuselah acted precisely like a turtle of that estimated age. which Is to say nothing excited him. neither the rumors of wars in Manchuria, nor the depression nor the latest divorce In Hollywood. In 600 years or more, he had pretty near found out that the secret of life was to draw your neck in tinder your shell and not move. And that's what Methuselah did. But a lot of silly human beings who hadn't learned that much paraded by him all afternoon and estimated that If rut up and laid end to end. Methuselah would probably make a couple of thousand indigestible turtle soups. And What's More Other pets displayed Included a couple of storks, one pelican with a beak as big as a house, three wrestling bear-cubs an ostrich (who didn't bury his head In the sand-there wasn'f any sand), herons, cranes, a pair of llamas and a pair of pretty ugly-looking beavers. And oh, yes I any number of OF LIFE canaries, love-birds, pigeons, monkeys, big dogs, little dogs, medium-sized dogs, white rabbits, pedigreed cats, parrots and solfflsh.

May Discipline 2 Who Secured Higgins' Bond Justice May Quizzed to See if Lawyer anil Bondsman Hid Farts Following the questioning yesterday of Supreme Court Justice Mitchell May by Assistant United States Attorney McKenzie, relative to his signing the $5,000 ball bond that permitted Charles (Vannie) Higgins his liberty on bail while being held on a Federal bench war-rent last week. Federal Attorney Amcli will send his report of the investigation to Federal Judge Campbell. Judge Campbell ordered the Investigation when he learned of the release of the Brooklyn gangster and beer runner. Bail can be approved only by a Federal Judge when a prisoner Is held on a bench warrant In the United 'States courts. The bondsman who presented the bail bond to Justice May and a representative of Abe Keselman, Higgins counsel have been intero-gated also at Amell's office. If it is learned that Justice May was not Informed of the real status of Higgins' detention, it Is likely that disciplinary measures may be taken against the bondsman and the attorney.

AA At the eighth trick, North N S w Dominions Get Free Trade in British Tariff Duties Hitting American Products Climax Long Fight by Beaverbrook London, Nov. 18 ?) A preference tariff to unite the dominions of the British Empire into economic unity seemed assured today. Lord Beaverbrook, with his power ful newspaper, the Daily Express, demanded during the campaign a policy of free trade within the empire as a means of building up a British economic unity that would be comparable with the United States, between whose States no tariff barriers are known. In the course of his battles over the issue, the 52-vear-old publisher has bitterly attacked Stanley Baldwin, Conservative leader, and threatened to "smash" the conservative party. Dominions Exempt The bill, as It was pushed through the first stages of the House of Commons procedure yesterday, provides for special tariff duties, up to a maximum of 100 percent, for hundreds of manufactured articles Imported into Great Britain, most of them from the United States. From the special "anti-dumping" duty the British dominions would be excepted. Lord Beaverbrook began nearly two years ago an attempt to organize an empire free trade party to support his theory that the empire would preserve Its unity and prosperity only by adopting a tariff policy which would practically confine its trade within its own dominions. Booed at Campaign Rallies He predicted a membership of 100,000 at the time, served notice on the Conservatives he would support them only if they agreed to his tariff program and used the radio to broadcast the doctrine to the people. He was booed at political meetings and attacked by Conservative and Liberal leaders on several occasions. Toward the end of last March, however, the differences between the Beaverbrook and regular factions of the Conservatives began to be patched up. The proposed new tariff measure Is to be administered by the Board of Trade and It carries a provision that Imports must be shown to be excessive before lis rates may be applied.

Q of spades and at least a side K. Therefore, there Is little chance of East obtaining the lead and so no good reason for exhausting his spsdes before stepping In with the A. Moreover, since at least one finesse, and possibly two, cannot be made the one chance for game Is the dim (nation. North takes the spade lead with the A. He then leads out his diamonds, throws West in with a spade and forces lead of hearts or clubs. If West had thrown either two hearts or two clubs, North would first lead that A before putting West In th) lead. North South Stories of Old Brooklyn Ft. Greene Site Home OfCardinalftVCloskey sj rf.'..aiU.lii;:! View irom the RumparU of Fort Greene, from a photograph taken about 50 years ago. Noted Prelate as Boy Pastured Falliera Cows on Historic Land Now Topped by Monument to Prison Ship Martyrs By MAl'RICE E. McLOl GHMN George McCloskey, the father of John McCloskey, who became the first American cardinal, was a Brooklyn dairy farmer who pastured his cows on the hillside now known as Washington Park, but more familiar to most Brooklynltes as Fort Greene. On the side of the hill, now topped by a magnificent monument, is the tomb of the Prison Ship Martyrs. No more fitting spot could be found on which to erect a shrine for those brave men who suffered and died such painful and lingering deaths as their share of the great sacrifice in the cause of freedom. The remains of these patriots were burled near the shore at the Wallabout until 1808, when they were removed to land owned by John Jackson near the Navy Yard. Tomb Erected in 1873 H-ere they remained until June 17, 1873, when they were permanently placed In the tomb prepared for them on the slope of Fort Greene. After a tedious fight that lasted many years, an appropriation was obtained and the fine monument on the crest of the hill was erected as a fitting memorial to the men who were really and truly martyrs in the cause of liberty. On the hillside where John McCloskey. who afterwards became the head of the Roman Catholic Church in America, played as a boy and tended his father's flock, American soldiers had fought and bled and died in the War of the Revolution. At the topmost point of the hill General Washington stood and witnessed the defeat of the trcops of General Sullivan, on Aug. 27, 1776 Tha spot was then known as Fort Putnam. The name was changed to Fort Greene during the War of 1812. City Bought Park in 1847 The present park, which totals 30 acres, was, before ,the Revolution, the property of John Couwenhoven; his son, Item Couwenhoven, and Casper Wooster. The whole section was known as Couwenhoven's Woods. In 1847 the land comprising the park, with Its many historic associations, was taken over by the city of Brooklyn at a cost of $200,000. Later it was placed under the care of the Department of Parks, which has since had it in charge. When the city of Brooklyn bought the land the officials had it inclosed with a picket fence. This was later replaced by a stone wail with a granite coping. Landscape architects designed winding paths that were covered with a pavement of tar and pebbles. The paths led to the plaza at the top, which was higher at that time than any building In Brooklyn, and a favorite diversion of Brooklynltes was a walk up the hill to enjoy the view, which is still a source of pleasure to thousands. Popular With Young One of the features of the park Is a series of granite steps leading up to the top of the hill, starting from the playground on the Myrtle Ave. side, which used to be a plaza capable of accommodating several regiments, with plenty of room for maneuvers. In the days when talkies, cabarets, night clubs and Joy rides were unknown, the benrhes of the shaded walks of Fort Greene were highly popular with young couples, and many a gray-haired Brooklyn matron of today will acknowledge that she whispered the "yes" that sealed her fate under the waving branches of the Fort Qreene trees. Says Jerusalem Has Become Modern City "Jerusalem now has beauty parlors and motion picture films," said H. C. Ostrander. who lectured on "Jerusalem and the Holy Land" yesterday afternoon at the Academy of Music. "AH through Palestine roads are modern and airplanes take people fmm Jerusalem to Bagdad. There are water works, though some women still wash In the Pool of Be-thesda. "The government Is planning a system of irrigation for the fields and the Zionists are establishing markets for their manufactured goods," h concluded.

"Many of my pupils told me that they had always thought cities Just grow without any "They were absolutely amazed to learn how minutely every detail of a great civic project is planned before the actual construction work is started. "The real value of this exhibition, in my opinion, Is In pointing out the fact that In order to make a city or large area grow and develop in an orderly and efiective way there must first be a definite and comprehensive plan." Mrs. Parsons said that the large and elaborate transportation models contributed by the Board of Transportation, were of special Interest to her group In view of the fact that her class In social science had Just proWemsd tUdy lransPriatlon She said that from her own standpoint the most important part of the exhibit was the group of maps and sketches showing the proposed routes of new highways in the Long Island area. "It seems to me." she said, "that one of the moat vital needs of this section is the construction of more' arteries Into Long Island and especially through the bottleneck In Queens."
