THE GUARDIAN PACE / THE NEWS POINTS OF SPECIAL INTEREST N OT ALWAYS FOUND IN THE ORI. GINAL STORIES, WITH OCCASIONAL COMMENT. By John Gibson in New World, Chicago Boys Live Fast Declaring that boys live faster to- day at seventeen than they did at the age of twenty-seven, a generation ago, an eastern judge sentenced three seventeen-year-old youths. The judge and follow any profession you may choose. It will not restrict your op- portunity or become an obstacle to your ambition.

The police an- nounced today that the boys have confessed to the murder, Hines say- ing that he fired at Libotte. Hines declared that he was sent to a reformatory twoyears ago, for a crime that he did not commit, and since has tried to defeat the law. Ma- rion wanted the thrill of adventure. _. A Theft at Thirteen Lest some one might say "Look nearer home"---a 19-year-old Chicago youth, who started a crime career at 13, was hanged last Week. This youth was sent to the county school for boys when 13 years old for thievery. He was again arrested soon after his re- lease and sent tp the St. Charles, Ill., reformatory. Soon after his release from St. Charles, the youth was sentenced to Pontiac, and had been released from them on parole only a few months when he was captured in the stolen automobile. The minister of his church, accord- ing to reports said ,~the boy "had the face of an angel but the heart of a fiend." The lawyers who handled the case of the unfortunate youth refused to make a plea of "insanity," bedause they believed it was untrue. Bolshevism Rampant IIow far juvenile delinquency is ~lue to "red" propaganda, it is diffi- cult to determine. How far reaching that propaganda is in reality is shown from Arthur Brisbane's recent com- ment: "Leaders of the Bolshevist Russian government inform their fol-~ lowers that everything is going nice- ly. Russian propaganda is respon- sible for the revolution in China. Russia is supporting financially and "morally" the British workersin their great coal strike, which has put the whole of Europe on short coal rela- tions." In addition there is a well grounded belief that the Soviet agents are not merely innocent bystanders in Mex- ico. The Boy and the Auto Many fond parents permit boys in their early teens free use of the ily car. Others provide the youngsters with autos for their own use. For a great many reasons that will be dis- covered upon'reflection, it is a bad practice. Judge Allegretti, of the Chi. cago Boys' Court, said while speaking in Detroit recently: "In improper "hands the automobile can become an instrument of ruin. Boys speed in them. They frequently get into trouble by picking up young girls in them." The free ~ise of an automobile of- ten results in improper surroundings and associations. At best it the boylfrom parental su the pla~Tfor any boy during his fre~ time is tither at home or in some place where there is supervised re- creation. Roasting the streets and traveling with the "gang" on foot is bad en- ough, but it is considerably worse, when fond parents provide a car to help the boys "carry on." ~- Goo~l Advice Edgar A. Guest, poet and ~opular columnist, in the American Magazine says; "The sooner any young man dis- covers that belief in God and belief in his own divine purpose are vital to his carder, the better it will be for him. I would rather die leaving noth- ing to my boy but his religion, than to die leaving him a fortune, with no religion. "If I can but impress him, as my mother impressed upon me, the fact that God has given him a soul to be his for all eternity, that he has been blessed with Divine powers to beau- tify and glorify that soul, if I can give to him the sure belief in a Supreme Being, I shall not have to worry about his future.
