BY fcoftfcRf MACtfcOt) fcditof, 'feefi Magaiifte inside fashion stoty: Oh the "outside" of Bonnie and Clyde, TTiea Van Runkle nominated for an Academy Award for her interpretation of the "Dillinger Look'* of ihe Fay thinaway and War- fen Beatty costumes, the way she recreated the "depression look" has swept the fashion scene. Hie Oscar should be hers. NEW DELINQUENCY pattern: Probation officers reflect new "cultural" directions. Ten years ago, youth "acted out tensions" by ma- Icious mischief—burglary caf theft, etc. Today, narcotic and marijuana offenses are "No. 1." Theory is that Young America is "interior- izing" their personalities. The fact that the proportion of persons under 18 has increased in the past 10 years relates to the "inferior" theory of youthful personalities. Patterns of girl delinqents have not changed as 'dramatically as boys. Running away and sex delinquency still head the list of offenses. Parents are geing involved in greater numbers in court hearings and courts are placing severe parent-child conflict cases in foster homes. Authorities of correctional institutions take a dim view of reports of the use of narcotics in-on their physical :plants. Claim "convenient exaggeration." Assert that pills "are much larger contraband problem than marijuana because the latter can be easily detected." CREW 'BY DAY, Hippie by night: Huge wig market —for boys! Crew cut on school boys are "longies" at night. Leading manufacturer claims sales of 3,0"' a week. "Best seller" is a $30 job of acetate. The $70 "stretch" version is "Beatle length" and made of human hair. SUICIDE IS No. 2 as cause of death among college students. Autos are No. 1. A common misconception is that young "talkers" of self- destruction are not like to attempt it. Drugs such as amphetamines, L.S.D. and other hallucinogenic drugs Construction Is Slowed by Rains DALLAS (AP) - Widespread rains held first-quarter construction contract awards in the state down to $294.38 million, the magazine Texas Contractor will say this week. The three-month breakdown was like this: January $118.27 million; February $94.46 million; and March $81.65 million. The magazine said the quarterly total compares favorably, all-in-all, with $305 million for the comparable period last year and the record $344 million in 1956. break down natural inhibitions against suicide.. Authorities in colleges watching the pot scene very closely. DOUBLE fiRESfEfc tweed: College men are tu f ft i n | sharply toward tweed jackets. Fashion cats "personalize" with novelty buttons. Vents are long. Collar roll is high. Flap pockets complete the scene. LIFE FOR pushers: New York state moves against persons who sell marijuana or narcotics to teens. Those convicted will receive life imprisonment if legislation now pending in Albany is apprpv- ed by the state legislature. TEEN CREDIT climbs: Credit cards on the rise. Major stores and gasoline companies not as leery of bad risk factor as they were two years ag5. A major exception: Record clubs using "fan" type teen magazines to attract mail orders. The teeny boppers are slow pay. Should not be confused with credit card buying. "OEMS" TO remember: Empires may come and go. The U.S. may win in Vietnam or just stay on and on, but the only thing that really goes on forever is the diamond — it actually lasts forever. Then too, every diamond has already been around for millions of years. LIGHTS UP: As seen in eye clinic of Los Angeles County General Hospital and in private homes in too many places of late—L.S.D. trippers who "turii on" under a sun lamp. They just stare into it at night by the hour in lieu of the real sun. Like L.S.D. functions in lieu of real life. Net result? Incredible eye damage —burning of the retina, blindness. One emergency treatment is to pour drops of anesthetic into the eye in order to stifle the sickening pain — that's when the trip ends. Contract Signed For Big New Dam COOPER, Tex. (AP) - Th Army Corps of Engineers am groups from 13 North Centra and Northeast Texas citie signed a multi-million-dollar coi tract Friday for the new Coope Dam and Reservoir on the'Soul Sulphur River.
