r Jucfge Sends Problem Parents : (a/ To Classes Instead of Jails By MARIANNE NfiA Staff Correspondent fifcAftSbRN, Mich.—"Ninety dayi , in,-jailf-or go to school and learn hcrW to'be a decent parent!" That is jtfte sentence Judge T. Marttn ha. e 'Impdsed oh scores of parents haled into his Dearborn courtroom. l"he (School for Delinquent Parents, It's called. One evening every tWO weeks the tall doors of the musty bid Dearborn Municipal Court- hotlse swing open to admit a sorry jjafade of chastened men and wom- , erii come to learn their duties as the heads of families. They are ihe parents who, with overstuffed Arartime pay envelopes * toured the,'beer taverns and the . dance halls while their offspring Went unfed and uncared for at home. They arc the greedy ones . Who piled up overtime at night at the' expense of hours that might have be'en spent with their sons and daughters. They arc the drunks; the brawlers/ the financially irresponsible whose victims are theli own neglected and; abused children. PARENTS CHOOSE CLASSES On the theory, that juvenile delinquency can nearly always be traced to family difficulties and that jailing and fining a parent can often work more/hardship than correction, Judge Martin started his school a year and a half ago. Par„ cuts charged with neglect, non-support, drunkenness, assault and battery, disturbance of the peace, etc., are told upon conviction for a first offense they can either attend Judge George T, Martin solves delinquency cases brought to his court by sentencing parents to attend classes in which their problems were discussc.l. classes as a condition, ot,probation v or accept the usual-fine or-, jail sentence. Most of them choose the classes. Today records show that no parent has ever completed the course has ever been brought back into court on smiliar charges, and the City of Dearborn has the best rec- PriicUc:tl problems are discussed in Dearborn's "School for Delinquent Parents." Addressing the class, held in Judge Martin's court county. Classes are held in the judge's own courtroom and last about an hourt. The first half-hour is devoted to talk on some phase ol home and family living by an expert in the field. The second half is used for questions and genera discussion. Subjects include general family health, specific childhealth, family finances, family recreation, home economics, dietetics, housekeeping, child psychology, child guidance, cure of the sick and problems of youth. The aim is to eliminate as much as possible the trial-aild-error asualties of child-raising. TALKS ARE PRACTICAL Talks are practical and pointed up with pertinent anecdotes. The speaker I heard did not just say it is important that a child be loved and made to feel wanted, but went on to fell of actual problems arising because a child felt unwanted. She advised her listeners to help children think for themselves, to avoid humiliating children by scolding ;hem in front of their friends, and to talk things over instead of demanding arbitrary obedience. Children should be encouraged to bring their friends home, she said. They should be given a certain amount of privacy. When things o' wrong, careful listening and quiet observation will often lead a jarent to the root of the trouble. 'Students" number 50 to 75 a session. Sometimes one parent attends, sometimes both. Not all are court cases. Some "border-liners lave been advised to attend rather ,han have a warrant issued against them. .Others .are interested outsiders.

A mother who never could get her son up in the morning to go to school said she wasn't boss in her own home. Investigation revealed she wasn't much concerned with the hours he had kept the night before, and that hcr current boy-friend was more important to her than her child. One mother was convicted of forging her own birth certificate so that her 15-year-old duughlci might obtain a summer job in n war plant. She later persuaded the daughter to give up school for the job. Now the mother is a "regular" at the judge's classes. The relationship between juvenile delinquency and high wages first gave Judge Martin his idea. As a school board member a few years back, he discovered through research that crime among minors had reached a peak in fabulous 1929, dropped off during the depression, started up again in 1940 and had gone on to a new high during the war years. This was in direct ration to money-making opportunities open to parents. Most parents, Judge Marttn feels are willing to learn and their faults are thpse of ignorance, not wilful misconduct. 'City Council' of Veis Help Run Trailer Village CANYON, March 8.—Living cpn- ditions more attractive ; ttijm external appearances might" indicate are being achieved by 50 world war II veterans in the new trailer village at West Texas State. Thirty-two of the men are married and there are 21 children in the village. The trailer houses are furnished with water, lights, gas, and sewer connections. One concrete sidewalk has been completed and graveled walks are being constructed to each house. Provided, also, are clothes lines, disposal cans, and other facilities. Some dsvellers are building light fences. Workmen are banking soil around the i'oundations and leveling ground broken by utility lines. H. L. Harden, assistant business manager of the college is in charge of the trailer village. He is assisted by a "city council" composed of James Shuttleworth of Sudan, a senior; Roger M. Smith of Plainview, a freshman; and W. L, Johnsen of Turkey, a junior. Shuttleworth denies that he is mayor of the village. "We had more than enough experience with top men in military service," Shuttleworth explained. "Our councilmen'are equal in rank." Scheduled to be started soon is a a new dormitory to house one hundred veterans. This will be a one- story unit located near Terrill Hall for men. It will be placed east of the Terrill Hall dining room and will face north.

Rainfall Reported In Canadian Area CANADIAN, March 8. (Special)— The weather bureau's rain gauge. registered 64/100 inches Tuesday morning, and more fell during the day.

England's sational consumption of bread increased by 20 in a recent three-month percent period. The opera, motion pictures,, theater, and ballet are all state- supported under the Soviet government. The Panhandle-Plans and Southeastern New Mexico area is made to order for raising sorghums and many an enterprising farmer has found how easy it is to make new income from this -if much-demanded product. Extensive tests have been made and ~ experts tell us that sorghums grown in this territory can't be beat. Heavy beef is being profitably finished on these fine sorghums. The climate and soil conditions here are ideal for sorghum—and a lot of other agricultural products for that matter. Yes, the Panhandle-Plains and Pecos Valley area has everything-^ including plenty of dependable, low cost electricity for irrigation, water pumping, milking and scores of other farm uses.
