ert. Judge Gatens spoke on the
Juvenile Court and some features re
lating to its work. In part he said:
The State Federation of Women's Clubs
recently adopted a report ursine that the
Judge of the Juvenile Court should have
no authority, after having committed, a
child to an institution, to revoke such com
mitment. Their recsons for taking such
power from the Judge are as follows:
'Tho child Is never taken from its par
ents unless the parents are found delin
quent; the child la placed in a rood home;
h.e learns to love his parents and they to
love him; after a time the parents turn
over a new leaf and appeal to the Judge
to revoke the commitment; new ties are
broken and the whole tenor of his life Is
This looks good in print and seems rea
sonable. Just on the face of it. However,
the Juvenile Court records prove this state
ment to be untrue. The larger percentage of
children are sent to institutions because of
dependency rather than delinquency. These
parents are good and love their children,
but are unable to care for them because of
poverty, or because of the death of the
father or the mother. Perhaps it is the
father, who, on account of the mother's
death, is temporarily unable to jroperly care

tered his condition, by marriage or other
means, should he not regain possession of
his child? Not if the heads t some in

When a child is permanently committed
to such an Institution and given out for
adoption, it Is forever lost sight of by its
parents, brothers and sisters and all blood
Let me cite an instance. About four
years ago a woman of the underworld, liv

before the Juvenile Court flffhtinsr for her

was suggested that the court take her child
from her permanently. When the mother
came before me she said if I would not
take the child away from her she would
turn over a new leaf, would leave such a
life and would devote the res of her life
to her child. That woman did leave the
North End to make an honorable living and
today Is married and living a respectable
life. The thought of losing her child for
ever was the means of causing her to re
Judge Gatens then cited other in
stances and explained the findings of
the Hotchkiss committee in Chicago.
He concluded with a short talk on the
status of illegitimate children, saying:
I believe the law which requires that the
woman bear the burden of all the disgrace
Is unjust from every point of view. In the
first place, it recognizes the double standard
of morality; thon, again. It does not equal
ize the burden of responsibility.
In many European countries there are
laws for the protection of Illegitimate chil
dren, with a view of giving them a fair
chance in lif9 and to legalize it.
What we need in Oregon is a law to
compel the fathers of Illegitimate children
to do their part toward securing the fu
ture of such children. I would suggest a
law to compel marriage, and where the
man refuses, the court to declare them hus
band and wife, and by the same decree
grant the woman a divorce he to pay some
thing toward the support of the child, thus
Why should the father escape all respon
slMlity? The various women's oYganizations in the
state should see that ome law is enacted
to protect the illegitimate child, so as to

the timber was of no use to the people

One of the chief characteristics of
Mr. Booth's life is his interest in the

private and public career he has done
much to provide modern education for

He has taken an advanced stand
