Food for Thought by Parents;
and All of I s
During the past week half a
dozen high school boys were dis
covered as making up an amateur
burglars' ring which had planned
and was carrying out a systematic
series of robberies in Salem. All
of these boys were less than IS
and consequently came before the
juvenile court; another, and older
boy, formerly of Salem but no
living in Portland, was also im
plicated and was bound over to
the grand jury.
Such a deplorable affair is suf
ficient to make the good citizens
of self-satisfied Salem pause and
consider who it was that failed in
responsibility. Of course, it was
the boys first of all, but they ap
pear to have had practically no
sense of responsibility. Most of
them came from good homes,
homes and home life of which
they were inclined to complain
as being too strict. Not one of
these lads had any reason to pass
up the blame. But the respon
sibility goes further. These par
ents and homes were indulgent.
If there was any restraint, H was
not always reasonable. The boys
were persistently away from the
fireside at night. Athletics, so
cial affairs, the movies, street
wandering, anything but staying
at home, and the home folks con
sented, or at least showed limited
concern as to where the boys were
These chaps were in high
school. In the old days a hieh
school student was supposed to
do some studying at home. The
modern system with its "super
vised study periods" has done
away with that. The average high
school student drops his thought
of study when he leaves the
building each afternoon "suffic
ient unto the day is the work
already done, now for the bright
lights." He would be ashamed
to be caught carrying his books
home. Nor is this all. Has the
high school administration no re
sponsibility over the student ex
cept when he is in the high school
building? Whose business is it
to know what is going on in the
curtained autoa parked outside i

corridors which are such popular
resorts? . You cannot do that,
mother dear, nor can your school
board, which is made up of the
busiest men in your fair city.
, The evidence presented to the
javenile court revealed that there
was an organized, system of barter
and exchange among some of the
high school students, the founda
tion of which was stolen property.
Boys who would not - shoplift,
nevertheless readily purchased
stolen goods which they knew
had not been come by- honestly.
Some of these transactions ap
