City Fights 6 Affluent Delinquency'' By JACK SCHREIBMAN RYE, N.Y. (AP) - Privileged children of upper-income homes, who amuse themselves with petty thefts, vandalism and party- :rashing, are the object of a city wide cleanup drive spearheaded by Mayor H. Clay Johnson of this West Chester County community. But to get the job done, says the mayor, the well-to-do parents of the children will have to be re- 8O POTENT N«v BwHly Sttim Mctall?

"The parents are to blame for his affluent delinquency." Johnson said. "We must restore the respectability of moral indignation." Restoration Johnson. f>0. hopes to effort the restoration through formation of a "Rye Council for Youth." to write a code of behavior for parents as well as their offspring. A group of 60 community leaders held a meeting to square up to tho problem. Attending were teachers, businessmen, churchmen. Lions. Kiwanians and Ro- tnrians and Boy nnd 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 un popular. This is wrong. These parents need a code to permit them to feel they can exercise some discipline." Paradox To the traditional thinkers, who automatically associate juvenile delinquency with slums anj broken homes, Rye is a paradox. The city has no slums; more than 23 per cent of its land is devoted to recreation—parks, ath letic fields and youth centers. Like Johnson, vice president and general counsel of the Roya 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. Parties have been crashed. The welfare of the community has been menaced." Doable Bill DENVER (AP) — A double bill at a drive-in movie theater featured "The Birds" and "Come Fly with Me."

(AP)-The old Illinois State Capitol used by Abraham Lincoln is going to be restored to its 1858 appearance. Authorities announced today that this will be done by removing the 11 feet of lower floor add ed in 1899. Lincoln was active in the build- Ing from 1840 to 1860. He tried r ?• •« in the Supreme Court there. L; used the gover- nor's office during his campaign for the presidency. In 1858, he made his "house divided" speech in the House of Representatives. When his body lay in state there in 1865, about 25,000 mourners filed by. Appropriation The course of the restoration of the Capitol, built in 1838, was decided in 1961 when the Illinois General Assembly appropriated $975,000 to buy the structure and the Springfield Square on which It rests. Another $100,000 has been appropriated to pay for planning. Another $1.8 million will be needed to complete restoration, which cannot begin until 1965 when Sangamon County will complete a new county building. Meanwhile, county authorities continue to rent the old Capitol. When begun, restoration will take about two years. The decision to lower the capitol, rather than to mound up earth about the lower floor, will be followed by a decision on the method of restoration. .Architects said either they will lower the building on jacks with out disturbing the exterior, and then tear out and rebuild the interior to match its 1858 details, or they will dismantle the structure stone by stone, build a new modern core to match details of the old capitol, and replace the old limestone skin. Either method is expected to cost about $1.8 million. This sum will be raised by state appropria tioris, local gifts, and by support from private foundations. Association The Abraham Lincoln Associa- tion, headed by Oliver J. Keller, was reactivated at Gov. Otto Kerner's request to advise architects and to solicit local and foundation support. Keller said the state would have B financial interest due to proposed use of the renovated structure as a Lincoln museum and as state historian's headquarters. State Architect Lorentz A. Johanson said the next step would be state acceptance of the plans, which include rebuilding of the cupola as of 1858. Earl W. Henderson Jr., architect, said the change in cupola styles destroyed the Greek revival style of the building. State Historian Clyde Walton said the American Bar Association and the Illinois Bar Associa tlon were interested in developing one of the rooms in the restored building as a museum of legal history in Illinois, centered around Lincoln. Walton said the Illinois Medical Association has been discussing a similar medical museum, with emphasis on practices as (A Lincoln's time. •••^••••^•^•B*^—•" • Rent Electric Carpet Shampooer FOR ONLY $1 Mow you can rent the new Blue Lustre Electric Carpet Shampooer for only $1 per day with purchase of fa'nous Blue Lustre Shampoo.
