We might also ask Why is crime on the increase throughout Texas and the nation? We have only to read the statements of law enforcement officers or to glance at the headlines to realize that this is a fiict In Austin recently a minor wave of housebreakings at the University ‘"of Texas was described as “a trend of the times” and typical of the period immediately following the war Although we may be accustomed to crime waves fallowing wars there is no reason to consider such a thing as inevitable and let it go at that Robbery for food or money during the depths of a depression would be more understandable than it would now Obviously many of our present day offenses are not being committed merely for the sake of items which are scarce The answer to the problem lies deeper than law enforcement It begins with the home where responsibility rests upon the shoulders of parents The answer also lies withJ churches civic organizations Boy Scout leaders and all groups whose activities touch the lives of young people Crime is not a pleasant thing under any circumstances It is especially ugly when offenses are committed by those young in years Who knows but what this recently-captured couple might have been leading normal lives instead of fighting running battles at the tender age of 20 if someone had not failed in his duty? - The Nation Today Law Sets Limitations On Truman Plan To Let Refugees Into US By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON Dec 27 M1)— President Truman has told American officials to help peed up imigration to this country of people from Middle and Eastern Europe At most Mr Truman figures this will mean 39000 immigrants coming here from those sections in a year He is not changing any rules He can't There's- a law limiting the number of immigrants from any one country in any one year Each has its quota The total quota is 153879 (There are no quotas for any country in the Western Hemisphere but in order to come here from any Western Hemisphere country a person must have been bom in that country" The quotas were set up in 1924 under " law There was only a trkkJy cl immigrantuduring the war But the quotas remain the same until changed by Congress If any country’s quota is 300 or more a year only 10 per cent LAFF - "Tjf wife'i brother gave me this of the total quota can come here in any one month If a country does not use up its quota in r year it can’t add the unused part of its quota to the next year Before the war some countries used up their quotas yearly Some didn’t Some of course won’t be able to come at all The law forbids entrance here to criminals prostitutes badly diseased per-ons or persons over 16 who can't und' r-standingly read in their own language And before getting an okay tc come here an immigrant must have money to support himself here or have in this country relative or some organization which will promise to see that he does not become a public charge The total quota of 153879 is divided this way: Great Britain 65721 Irish Free State 17853 Germany 25957: Austria 1413 Greece 307 Bulgaria 100 Poland 6524 Quotas also were jet up for other countries AfDAY lighter It doesn't work either!” DREW PEARSON WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND DREW PEARSON SAYS War Department Guilty of Gross Waste in India Empty Coca-Cola

the War Department budget officer who accompanied the congressional committee on its tour Richards did everything in his power to prevent Engel I mm talking with officers who knew about irregularities and weie itching to spill what they knew The general even went to the length of timt-ening to leave Eimcl behind at Karachi India Richards had laid out n carefully planned schedule of stops that amounted to a cook's to r of officers’ clubs so the investigating congressmen would hear only what the war department wanted But he didn’t reckon with the two-fisted congtessman from Michigan The sub-committce stopped at Karachi for lunch and were told to get back on the plane at 1:15 to start for Abadan On his way to the officers mess Engel ‘topped to talk to some young Air Corps officers who had been flying transport planes over the Hump Immediately Chaperon Richards rushed over and tried to break up the conversation “You’ll have to eat right away in order to make the plane congressman” he said Gadfly Engel But the congressman courteously brushed him off got out a pencil and began taking notes After the others had eaten Geneial Richards again rushed out excitedly and tried to harry Engel to the plane “We came here to get the facts general” deviated the congressman “and I intend to stay here until I get them” Richards went off but returned almost immediately to say that the plane was leaving He warned Engel bluntly that he would be left behind if he didn't cease his questioning and get on the plane “Take your-— plane and go" snapped Engel angrily “I’m going to get this story if it takes me until Christmas If you want to leave without me go right ahead" General Richards turned to a second lieutenant in the group and ordered in crisp tones: “I want yuu to report to your commanding officer everything you have tokl the congressman" tUU-liuie other menbeuul the congressional party had re- "BUNDLES FOR BRITAIN tarned to watch the fireworks and formed a ring around
