.<1fe OTTAWA HERAtJ? Thursday, May 14, 1959 Disne/s Eyes Glow At Mention Of Little Trains By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-TV Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP)-Walt Dis- ne'y, admittedly a nut about trains, has a new plaything that could help solve the strangled traffic of American cities. It's a mile-long monorail system. 'Tis said by some that the only reason Walt created Disneyland was so he could have a place to run his trains around. This is probably an exageration. Yet there can be no doubt that his eyes start to glow when he talks about his rolling stock. His latest dream is the Disney- land-Alweg monorail system, one of the features in /the six-million- dollar expansion program at the Anaheim, Calif., park. Lately two aircraft companies have announced monorail systems, but Disney has them beaten. His trains will start running daily on June 15. "There is one other monorail in the world," Disney explained. "That's the one in Germany that is about 30 years old. The cars are suspended and won't go very fast. "Our trains run with rubber tires on a concrete runway supported by pylons as high as 35 feet. They are operated by electricity and there is no sway and no noise. In fact, they are so soundless that we'll have to add some noise to make the, ride more exciting. "The trains can go up to 70 rn.p.h. on the straightaway; ours is a small run with lots of curves, so the top speed will be about 35 miles. They are absolutely safe. If anything goes wrong, the motor cuts off and the train limps into the station at 4 m.p.h. In case the electricity fails, there are two auxiliary gasoline engines. We tried to think of everything." Disney engineers 'worked with the Alweg company of Germany for months to perfect the system.' Hard To Pinpoint Blame For Juvenile Delinquency By G. K. HODENFIELD AP Education Writer ' WASHINGTON (AP) - Juvenile delinquency is a thing of time, place and circumstance. The childish prank of a 5-year- old may be hooliganism in a teenager. Foul language is shocking in a classroom, but passes unnoticed in a street corner gang. To steal for kicks is outright {cause of delinquency. According to the experts, however, the ef- 'ects of a working mother varies rom family to family, neighbor- lood to neighborhood. More research is needed, they say, before this theory can be accepted. Broken homes often are blamed. But it may be only because the youngster with two parents to back him gets a better break in court. The youngster from a broken home runs a bigger risk of being sent off to a state institution crime, to steal because you're hungry and don't know where your next meal is coming from is crime tempered by the instinct to survive, A panel of six experts, who have just concluded a nine-month study of juvenile delinquency for the National Education Assn., says a delinquent act can only be judged in relation to the forces that caused it. The specialists represent the fields of cultural anthropology, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, criminology and sociology. Nearly everyone considers himself an expert on juvenile delinquency, and has firm ideas about its causes and cures. But, say the experts, it's not that simple, or deiiquency would long since have ceased to be a major topic of national concern. Over the years, says the NEA study, a great deal of fable and folklore has grown up around the problems of the adolescent. Many people, for instance, point to working mothers as a major See the Gold Star Gas Range at Wards Appliance Dept. — and he's the one who gets mentioned in the newspapers. The proposition that delinquents aren't really bright is a common assumption with little or no scientific support, according to the report. Another popular idea knocked by the experts is that "a community with many playgrounds is a community with little delinquency." Carefully planned recreation programs can help, they say, if coordinated with other efforts, but their research indicates no direct relationship between such programs and delinquency rates. Bad companions, heredity, poor physical health and slum neigh- aorhoods also were cited by the experts as oft-quoted causes of delinquency which really aren't. "Juvenile delinquency is not a 24-hour malady," says the report. 'It does not develop overnight. Serious and persistent trouble with the law on the part of youngsters can be traced back to a long sequence of cause and effect." The current report offers no pat solution for the juvenile delinquen- cy problem because, the experts say, there just isn't any. The report did make these points, however: There is a desperate need for more and better research than has been attempted in the field. Community efforts that have proven effective must be expand ed, and useless practices discarded. More and better efforts must be made to identify the delinquency bound youngster before he gets there. Primarily, it said, "in seeking a cure for delinquency, the neigh borhood, not the child, must be the patient." CRUSHED STONE AG. LIMESTONE FOGLE QUARRY without a Price Increase! Ph.
