Wednesday, March 21,1956 dbr lagtomi *•* 'Softheaded' Parents Blamed For Kid Crime WASHINGTON —UP— FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover hatl harsh words Tuesday for "softheaded" •parents who fall, to teach their children "respect for God, the law, and others," Hoover blamed them tor the. nation's postwar crime wave which he feels "is essentially a youth problem," YOU TRADE-IN IS WORTH MORE At Thod feiton's Printing... is a fulltime job for experienced workers every day at Matherne's! Prices... are competitive for quality work, delivered on time, when promised! Ridtherne's Children n e e d playgrounds, youth agencies, and organizations like the Boy Scouts; Hoover told fi House Appropriations subcommittee. But "no one of these can take the place of the mother and father conscious of their responsibility to inculcate in youth respect for God, the law, and others." "That is what is lacking today," he said. He 'gave figures showing an estimated 2,255,000 major crimes were committed in 1955 — half of one per cent less than in 1954. This was the first drop since 1347. But he noted that during the the first half of last year,' for which records are complete, a major crime was committed every 13.9 seconds. Every 4.2 minutes there was a crime of murder, manslaughter, rape or assault with -intent to kill. Hoover termed the cost of crime "startling." He said it cost 520 billion a year, or an average of $477 for every family in the nation. Although only 36 per cent of those arrested in 1954 were under 21, he said, that age group accounted for 51 per cent of all crimes against property that year. Hoover was particularly bitter about juvenile crime and what he called the failure of parents to exercise their .responsibility. ' He said parents should be held legally and financially responsible for misdeeds of their children. In communities where this has been By Same Robber Swank Motetl Hit SAN ANTONIO —UP— The swank Westerner Motel was robbed Monday night of J7QO by a bandit identified by night manager James Heiny as the same one who took ?400 from him last Dec. 27. adopted, he said Juvenile delinquency has decreased. "Too often," he said, parents "resent and reproach the police officer who brings their child home after he has engaged In wrongdoing." "It Is that kind of softheaded- ness which contributes • to delinquency," the FBI chief declared. He added that if fathers and mothers "made the boy and girl work and have chores to do, they wouldn't-;-have time to get Into trouble." • Hoover said FBI agents would 'rather .contend" with an . adult criminal in a gun battle or other contact than with teenagers or youths in their «arly twenties. Youthful criminals, he said, "ha've little fear, they are frequently users of narcotics, : and there is a certain braggadoccio and false bravado about them that the older criminal doesn't have."
