Aid For Slum Qearance '•THIS is • Btory with names * omitted "to protect tlie innocent." I dont Icnow tiie names anyway. It is a sequel to the recent column about "Old Hal­ lowe'ens" and is written in proof of the charge that parent.s, more than their children, create today's juvenile problems. You the ginlc that wrote that Hallowe'en hogwasb?" T heard. "So you know all the answers," continued the vengeful voice, over the telephone. "Look, wise guy, you and all your sort make me sick. T work for a living; how can I know where my kids are and what they're doling?" "Got a wife'?" I asked him. " I have—and that she works?" "Night and day?" "Eight hours, five days every ;wcek, and we're not hanging iaround baby sitting kids. We Ineed recreation too; anyway it 's no skin off .vour nose, and none of your business." "What happens to children is anybody's business," I said. ^ "Not my childern, mister," he i snapped. EAGER WITH MEMBERSHIP VIENNA. Dec. 1.5 (INS) — Chancellor .Julius Raab hailed Austria's admission to UN membership today as one of the nation's "great historical days." WANT ADS BRING RESULTS THE VOICE wanted to argue, or was it the liquor? ! decided to argue as long as he would. I'm glad that I did. for the conversation revealed the thinking of the kind of people who never should have children. But they do, usually lots of them, to run wild, perplex police, jam the courts and ultimately fill the jails. "Look, fellow," I said, "you took the trouble to call me; mind If we visit a little?" "Go ahead, your smart talk can't hurt me. Me and my wife were just sitting here having some drinks wi*h another couple and we decided to go to the mat with birds like yoir" "At home?" 1 asked. II was around 11 o'clock. "Naw, ' not home. We g(>l around and go places, and we know what folks think of busybodies like you—you stink!" • * • "HOW MANY diildren have you?" I ventured. "More'n you, I bet; three of 'em,'' he growiofi. "Mow old are they?" "Try to line! out, you snoop." "Wlieie are Uwy now?" "Home; we can't take kid.s out every nighl."

"Yes, I see." * • • "WHAT JF your kids got in trouble tonight, or your house burned?" 1 asked him. "Good God man, don't you think we'd hear about it? What we got firemen and policemen for? Who 's gojing to hang around the house all the time walling for something to happen?" "If something did happen, where would they find you?" "Don't you you knew where we are—well Vo" won't." There was raucous laughter in he background. ' "I'd rather know where you live," I .said. "I'd like to go there and see how three parentless children under 13 get along alone half of every night." lie was real mad by now. . '* • "GO CHASE yourself. We'll bring up our kids just like we damn please and if they don 't turn out all right it won't be no fault of ours and no affair of yours. We'll feed 'em, never failed yet; it's up to the schools to teach 'em. cops to keep 'em str.iigbt—there's nothing else we can do about it—nor anybody else that has to work."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 (INS)—Small towns in Ohio have been appurently pans' Ing up a rood opportunity by failinff to realiie that they could tet federal funds for slum clearance without pnt- Unf up any money of their own. A spokesman for the Urban Renewal Association said that Martins Ferry is the only Ohio city with less than 25,000 population to inquire about the federal program. • Eight of Ohio 's large , cities have been granted federal funds, but on a matching basis, for clearing blighted areas. "We've been concentrating mainly on the big cities," the URA official declared. "But now we want to hear more from the smaller towns in Ohio and elsewhere." The official went on to say that lack of size and smallness of amount desired is not a determinant. « • • "There's a small town in New Hampshire that is getting federal help to clear a blighted area for a parking lot," the spokesman said. The agency has set aside $31 million for slum clearance projects in Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, Cleveland, Hamilton, Day­ ton, Youngstown tnd iteuben- vine. Only condition on getting federal aid Is that matching funds must be provided by state legis lation. But towns cities and villages .under ",000 In popu lation do not have to put up funds.
