Mayor Blames Parents for Delinquencies of Children By JACK SCHREIBMAN RYE, N.Y. (AP) - Privileged children of upper-ir.come homes, who amuse themselves with petty thefts, vandalism and party- crashing, are the object of a citywide cleanup drive spearheaded by Mayor H. Clay Johnson of this Westchester County community. But to get the job done, says the mayor, the well-to-do parents of the children will have to be rehabilitated first. "The parents are to blame for this affluent delinquency," Johnson said. "We must restore the respectability of moral indignation." Johnson, 50, hopes to effect the restoration through formation of a "Rye Council for Youth," to write a code of behivior for parents as well as their offspring. A group of 60 community leaders held a meeting to square up to the problem. Attending were teachers, businessmen, churchmen, Lions, Kiwanians and Rotarians and Boy and Girl Scout leaders. They heard Mayor Johnson lay the blame for Rye juvenile offenses on permissive parents who have abdicated their responsibilities for the sake of "status symbols they try to acquire." "Parents have been bullied by their children into giving excessive privileges," he said. For example, he said, if two parents allow their children to have parties at home without adult supervision, then their neighbors will permit their children unsupervised parties too. "They do this to gain status, for fear their children will be unpopular. This is wrong. These parents need a code to permit them to feel they can exercise some discipline." To the traditional thinkers, who automatically associate juvenile delinquency with slums and broken homes. Rye is a paradox. The city has no slums: more than 23 per cent of its land is devoted to recreation—parks, athletic fields and youth centers. Like Johnson, vice president and general counsel of the Royal Globe Insurance Companies, the breadwinners of Rye's neatly tended homes are important men in their organizations. Their children go to high-priced colleges and finishing schools. Yet, says the mayor: "There seems to be a complete contempt for adult authority among many youths. Extensive vandalism has occurred.

The Russians did use force to suppress the rebellious workers of East Germany in 195.1 and the revolutionary movement in Hungary, 1956. But in both these instances the Russians had divisions within easy marching distance to suppress the rioters and keep them under control. In the areas more remote from Russian tanks, the Soviet has had no better luck Japanese history killed 4,464 persons and injured 9,000. A thought for the day — The Scottish essayist and historian, Thomas Carlyle, said: "Music is well said to be the speech of angels." than the United States in mak- • ing upstarts say "Uncle." THK FIRST to break with Russia was Tito, when he pulled out the Commintern in 1948. Russia retaliated by boycotting Yugoslavia. When the West stepped into the gap and Yugoslavia showed signs of progress without Russian assistance, it was Khrushchev himself who went to Tito and arranged a reconciliation by diplomacy, not force. Though Russia had a submarine base in little Albania, her Communist First Secretary General Enver Hoxha did not hesitate to tell Khrushchev to his face in Moscow that he was a traitor to Marxism and Stalinism. Though the Russians have ranlcd at Hoxha, he continues to thumb his nose at them and gets away with it. Similarly, little Cuba, 5,000 miles from Moscow, has been able to defy big Russia on some things. Though the United States -90 miles away—forced Russia to withdraw its missiles from Cuba, Castro adamantly refused to allow U.N. inspectors to verify the dismantling of bases, at proposed by Khrushchev. Russia's limitations also wer« exposed in the Congo, where it* missions were expelled by Gen. Joseph Mobutu, in Laos where it has not been able to force the Pathet Lao communists to support the neutralist Premier Prince Souvanna Phouma, and in Red China, where Mao again is leading his impoverished 'party on another long march of defiance. The much stronger Soviet Union seems helpless to do anything about, it but complain. f .Hsur Marriage License CAMBRIDGE — Clarence J.
