ArfcanM* TIMES, Friday, May 3, 1974 AHKAM1AS Problems In A Mobile Society May Make Child Leave Home I arents, who has not ig the period, he parei durin. Family counseling and the significant role home environment plays in juvenile delinquency were the topics discussed at the Wednesday noon meeting ol the Washington County Juvenile Court Advisory Committee at Heinle's Steakhouse. The Rev. Marvin F. Hinrichs, quoting from a congressional committee report, described the kind of child who is least likely to be * runaway. "Fie is a young person who has at least one other sibling, who is living with both of his natural moved has been in school, his f a m i l y has not changed houses, or at least hoods some k i n d of value system which they are t r y i n g to transmit to the child". FEW FIT PATTERN But. the speaker pointed out the reality of American life is t h a t there arc fewer and fewer American families who fit t h a t p a t t e r n . Most people are mobile. There is divorce, and we have to come to grips with the fact that more and mon. children arc being raised b\ one parent," he said. The speaker's discussion was augmented w i t h experiences elated bv three volunteer probation o'fficers (VPOs) who vork with the county Juvenile !ourt. "When we look at statistics. i - e ignore huvnan beings who lave human problems and Eire irying out for help", said VPO Mrs. Judy Stewart who feels hat giving young people an opportunity to talk is one of he most imporUml things £ VPO can do. "You listen, hut you don't lis .en with your value system, you iust listen and do not have the right to judge. That's not your 'unction, but you listen and help :hem set their own value not changed ncighhor- and whose family has system not be which, hopefully, wil conflict with whal society says is legal," she said. Gene Anderson, a seconc VPO, discussed the importance of consistent discipline f a m i l y counseling. BIGGEST PROBLEM Mrs. Pat Brandkamp staler, the world's biggest problem today is permissiveness. "It is always belter to have a stric home with love. The prohlem is not one of juvenile delin quency but one of a troub!c family. We don't need to con done what a child has done but we do need to express and to restore self confidence A young child begins to see thi vorld and finds it scary and urns to his parents for reassur ncc. only tn f i n d the same lea n his parents." she said, also m p h n s i z i n g the need lor f a m i l y owtseltng. The three VPOs were in- roducctl by chief probation fficer, Howard Ilerm. The meeting was conducted by Mrs. Sylvia Swart?., chair- nan. Two ne\v members, the iev. Rill W i l l i a m s of Springdale and Mrs. Harry French of I'rai rie Grove were welcomed. Neal Millar, the first proha- ,ion olliccr for the juvenile court, announced his and Wesley Gee's resignation. Hoth net] are moving to Bella Vista l a t e r this month. Morris Springer, counselor at ,he court, explained that an on (omg gram family counseling underway and pro' the committee will lend supportive help to the program. Five new VPOs were approved. They are Pat Howard, Dennis Keck, Bruce ?'oster, Karol HEile. Mary Robbins and Martha James. A committee will he appointed to work out details of getting photographs of the three juvenile court judges to hang in the new courtroom. The judges have been Miss Suzanne Lighton, Richard Hipp and the current judge, Bob Mayes. Candidates Now Recall Political Meeting LITTLE ROCK CAP) -- David H. Pryor. a Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, said Thursday that he remembers attending a meeting with five Arkansas businessmen some time after he announced for governor. The Memphis Commercial Ap[x?iil reported Thursday lhat Pryor and former Gov. Orval Faubus met with a some "powerful" men on March 22 in a Little Rock motel and that the group had decided to support Pryor in the governor's race. Faubus had said earlier in a ielevised political speech that Pryor had met with a group of ''power- hungry men" w h o had "conspired" io select the next governor. Since then, the matter has become a campaign issue. Both men earlier had denied ever personally attending such a meeting. Pryor said Thursday, however, lhat he had no part in any conspiracy meeting. He said he did not know what went on before hn got there, or a f t e r ie left. "There was certainly no dis- Treasure Worth {20.4 Million Poses Problem For Irish Gang LONDON (AP) -- What do you do with 19 masterpieces worth about $20.4 million, that you stole in the world's greatest art robbery? One thing's for sure -- you can't sell them for anything like their market value. At least not openly. Right now, those 19 paintings are possibly the hottest chunk of stolen property in the world. Art dealers and police around the globe have been alerted to watch out for them. II poses a problem for police in Ireland investigating ttie raid last weekend by an armed gang on the collection of gold and diamond millionaire Sir Alfred Beit. So f a r , the gang lhat pillaged Beit's mansion near Dublin April 26 has made no ransom demands of any kind. But some art experts anci some police officers believe the robbery was politically moti- This, the experts believe, in- licated the raiders were probably motivated by something more than just personal gain. In the last three or four 'ears, according to police esti- hcse days are far more organ- lillion have been stolen. M o s t law enforcemenl agencies agree the thieves hese days ar far more organ- zed internationally and more cnowledgeable about a r t than ever hefore. And they are convinced thai a lot of major works thnt vnn- sh after tricv are stolen arc sold to wealthy collectors who n the woi'ds of one dealer "lust" after paintings their riches can never buy legitimately. However, some detectives suspect, no thief would be able to dispose of 19 famous masterpieces, even to shady collec- ors. This reasoning tends to jack up the theory tbe Irish robbery was politically moti- lussion about keeping anyone n the race or keeping anyone DtU," he said. "There was no liscussion of money." Pryor said lie considered the meeting "very normal and not out of the ordinary." Faubus, however, said the group tried to persuade him and as m a n y as 28 other potential gubernatorial candidates to slay out of the nice. Faubus said vatcd. Beit himself thinks the gang was out to make a killing y ransoming off the paintings for hard cash. And he's also said firmly he won't pay a ceiv if that is correct. Stealing art treasures has been a lucrative business for centuries. But in these days o terrorism and revolulionar politics it has assumed a more sinister aspect. Hugh Leggatt. a respected London art dealer and inter national a r t historian, said: "There are new motives behinc these art thefts. In the old days, Iheffs were o f t e n i n s u r ance frauds.

Watergate conspirator B toward Hunt told the com niltce last Sept. 24 that he an another member of the secre White House intelligence-gain ering unit that became know the Plumbers planned t aurglarize the ollice of La Vegas Publisher Hank Green spun. But. Hunt said, She burglar never came off. In the White House tape I r a n scripts, presidential advise John D. Ehrlichman said it did Purpose of the burglary, according to Hunt's testimony, was to get some information on Sen. Edmund S. Muskic of Maine which reputedly would cripple Muskie's fledgling prcs- denlial campaign. The planning took place, lunt indicated, between December 1971 and March 1972. Hunt said the plan was for-, mulated with the help of representatives of millionaire Howard Hughes who also wanted some material reported to be in Greenspim's safe. He testified lhat the Hughes eople promised to give the Plumbers such support services as hotel rooms and automobiles. The plan never worked, Hunt said because the Hughes people refused to give the would-be burglars an escape airplane. In addition. Hunt said, "the Muskie candidacy was rapidly losing impetus and no one was particularly interested in the information that Mr Greenspun might have possessed if, in fact, he ever did, concerning Mr. Muskie." TAPE REVELATION However, the White House earlier de- transcript of an April 14. 1973, conversation among President Nixon and his two top advisers, H.R. Haldernan and John D. Ehrlichman, indicates that the burglary did occur and that it was, in some unspecified way, successful. Nixon: Can you. tell me is that a serious thing? Did they really try to get into Hank Greenspun? Ehrlichman: I guess they actually got in. Nixon: What in the name of (expletive deleted) though, has Hank Greenspun got with anything to do with Mitchell or anybody else. Ehrlichman: Nothing Haldoman: They busted his lacied Thursday. Pryor said he thought the five persons named by the Commercial Appeal attended. He sitid he did not recall who had invited him (o the meeting. Faubus said a majority of the group support Pryor for governor. "I don't think you could blame Mr. Pryor for accepting such support," Faubus said. Faubus said the attempts to keep other men out of the race were made in late March. That safe to get something out of it. Wasn't that it?
