SEAL KATHERINE GROSS, Notary Public My commission expires July 4, 1963 while 77 represented the Business and Professional Women. The age range in the non-delinquent group was from 18 to 60. The study was divided into five areas: The extent of delinquency, the sources of delinquency, the characteristics of delinquency, (lie treatment of delinquents and remedies for delinquency. In the area of extent of delinquency, both delinquents and non-delinquents a g r c e d that there is more delinquency today because of the increase in population. Both groups agreed that delinquency is higher in the city than in rural areas, however data compiled in 1958 and 1959 indicate that there was a decline of two per cent in urban delinquency while there was an increase of 15 per cent in rural areas. Both groups agreed that children of today have better educations and a more wholesome outlook on life than children of a generation ago. Although both groups agreed that children of today are better educated and have a more wholesome outlook, the noii-de- linquent group, about 62 per cent, said today's child is no bel- ter or no worse than yesterday's while the delinquent group indicated that they felt today's children were worse than yesterday's. Characteristics or the "image" of delinquents brought disagreement in the statement that the only difference between delinquents and non-delinquents is that one was caught and the other was not. About 31 per cent of the delinquents agreed while only 13.3 per cent of the non-delinquents said this was correct. Do habits of dress mark the delinquent? Both groups agreed that habits of dress and h a i r style do not mark dclini^icnts and Loth groups also agreed that delinquents are not physical weaklings. There was some difference of agreement as to I.Q. scores of delinquents. The delinquent group, 60.5 per cent, disagreed that delinquents have low I.Q. scores while non-delinquents, 39.5 per cent, felt that low I.Q. was characteristic of delinquents. In the non-delinquent group, 44 per cent said low I.Q. was not the mark of a delinquent. Do delinquent girls have higher I.Q. scores than delinquent boys? Both groups were undecided here with 47 p"er cent of the delinquent and 49.1 per cent of the non-delinquejit group making this choice. Are there no "bad" boys or girls? In the delinquent group 51.6 per cent said that there are some boys and girls who are incorrigible no matter what is done for them and 63.3 per cent of the non-delinquent groups agreed with them. About half at each group felt that poverty was a cause of delinquency and about an equal number disagreed. In the delinquent group 44.1 per cent felt that boys who frequently go to pcol halls most often get into trouble with the police. In the non-delinquent group this number jumped to 47.4 per cent. Both groups, 61.7 per ccnl of the dr. linquents and 56.5 per cent f<> the ron-dolinquent unmp. fell that it is very easy fur a liny t,, become a delinquent when he fees men in business and »uv- ernment making, a HOIK I .living fiTim rackets. If a girl has served time in a training school, she will | H > a bad influence rn others if she is permitted to return t<> h i j.; h school. In the delinquent i;nmp, fJfi.H per cent held this t<> he tal.-e as did 72.9 per cent of the imn- delinquenls. There will be fewer delinquent acts if athletic contests are held in the afternoon rather than al night. In the delinquent group. 52.2 per cent said this is false and in the non-delinquent group 49.0 per cent said it would make no difference when the contests were held. Are training .schools, s<-he..-ls for crime? More of the delinquent group, 31.6 per cent, thought this was true and 2G.T> per cent of the non-delinquent gioups hold with this statement. However, 55.1 per cent of the delinquents and 45.H per cent of the non-delinquents s;iid this was false. If high school boys were not allowed ears, there w o u 1 d be loss stealing to keep the ears in gasoline and parts. In the delinquent group, 34.(i per cent said this would be true as did 47.5 per cent of the non-delinquents. Fifty-four per cent of the delinquents and 40.1 per cent of the non-delinquents disagreed with the statement. Rock 'n Roll ends up in delinquency. Both groups, 79 per cent of the delinquents and 75.5 per cent of the non-delinquents, said this was a false assumption. Parents of today spoil I h o i r children by giving them V;o much money. Both groups agreed that this is true. Social position of parents lends to influence the treatment of juvenile offenders. In other words, the rich man's children get off easier. Both groups agreed, 65.7 per cent of the delinquents and 74 per cent of the non-delinquents, on this statement as being true. The police and courts are too easy on delinquents. A total of 60.8 per cent of the delinquents saicl this is a false statement while 41.8 per cent of the non- delinquents said it was true. The delinquents were opposed to a "get tough" policy whereas less than half of the non-delinquents were in. favor of more severe treatment. Should newspapers publish names of juvenile delinquents? Non-delinquenta were divided on (his point with 43 per cent saying they should and 40.6 per cent saying they should not while 29.4 per cent of the delinquents thought names should be published and 61.7 per cent felt that names should not be published. Both groups felt- that forestry ca.-nps would be better for juvenile offenders than training schools. Both groups agreed that parolees should be permitted to join Scout Troops, attend Sunday Schools and participate in interscholastic athletics. More than half of each group felt that for- mer training school inmates should be pennitted to enroll in cnllp»es. More than half of each ui"up expressed a feeling that it' iiigh school girls married they >l • iild lie allowed to return to chlSM's.

Forty-four per cent of the delinquents and 42.4 per cent of the non-delinquents did not agree. Do curfews tend to curb delinquency' 1 Fifty-three per cent of the delinquents and 39 per cent of the non-delinquent group said that the curfew has little effect. Both groups felt that revision of child labor laws to allow teenagers to work would have a beneficial effect on curbing delinquency. Both groups strongly disagreed that lowering compulsory school attendance from 16 tn 14 years of age would curb delinquency. Both giv,-ups strongly agreed that a demand for more respect from children on the part of parents would aid in decreasing delinquency, and both groups agreefl that the father of the family should take a greater role in the discipline and control of their children. Seventy-three per cent of the delinquent and 79.1 per cent of the non-delinquent group wore of the opinion that if mothers quit working outside of the home there would be less delinquency and that if there were more work for the children it would tend to curb delinquent acts. Does glamorized crime on television and in the movies tend to give youngsters ideas which result in delinquency? Abnost 52 per cent of the delinquents said this was true as did 57.6 per cent i.-f the non-delinquents. In conclusion, over half of the delinquent and non-delinquent groups felt that there were too many meetings at high levels about the problem of delinquency but not much action the local level.
