BECOMES A MOTHER AT AGE OF TWELVE-LINTpN, Ind: A romance between two young children, resulting In the birth of a child to the girl, only 12 years of age, has shocked this community and split the citizens Into two opposing camps. Some helieve the solution to this problem would be an out-of-state marriage for Betty June Lacer, unwed mother at age of 12 and Tommy Chapman, age 13, who admitted fatherhood to the young girl a baby. Others think the youthful couple should be separated from each other. At the present, Tommy Chapman is being kept in Detroit and has not been allowed to see his child sweetheart nor baby boy.
