In a recent robbery or attempted
robbery in Portland the other day,
four boys were captured and will
serve long terms in prison. The
fifth boy of the group was killed.
Some people will wonder what the
world is coming to when boys so
young as these five attempt, and
sometimes succeed in bold robberies,
which even lead to murder. What is
the cause of this young crime wave?
Is It that these boys are left by
themselves, to run at large over a
large city and to pick up all the traits
of the sneak thieves and criminal
men of the underworld section? The
question will be asked: why isn't
there something done about this men
ace? Perhaps the parents of these
boys have to work throughout the day
and cannot or do not rightly train
their children. The state and city
authorities could do something for
these boys if they tried hard enough.
They could have more truant officers
to keep a stricter watch on all who
skip school, so that the boys would
be compelled to go to school where
they could not get into mischief,
After school hours and on holidays
the boys could be taken to the Y. M
C. A. or to other organizations, where
they could learn sportsmanship in
stead of thievery, and could be
brought up mentally and physically
straight. This might add extra work
to the officials, but these boys are to
make the future citizens of America,
and the officers would only be helping
their government and insuring the
prosperity and power of America by
starting these boys on the right road
that leads to a successful life and
makes good American citizens. ' '
