Parents' Job
A MIDSUMMER upswing in juvenile problems is in
evidence here. 1
Methods of enforcement of the curfew are a favorite
topic at city council meetings. The finger is being put
on places of entertainment, particularly skating rinks, to
see to it that youngsters behave themselves and go home
within hours. Police and juvenile officers pick up or
warn minors who are found on the streets after 10 p. m.,
unaccompanied by adults.
Juvenile authorities know that they cannot accom
plish much by these methods, for the only really effective
control must come through parents. If fathers and
mothers do not. care whether their children are home at
the time specified in the city ordinance, other people
can't do much about it.
It is late in the evening, when the law says children
shall not be on the public streets, that juveniles get
into trouble. Records of many of the serious delinquency
cases that develop here show that the first time the sub
ject came to the attention of police was an apparently
harmless case of curfew violation.
Another problem presents itself in connection with
the curfew. Whereas the city has a 10 p. m. deadline
and attempts to enforce it, there is no regulation of any
kind outside the city limits. If police in town turn the
heat on, violators can move out of town. Here again,
parental discipline gets the call. It knows no political
boundaries and ought to be brought into play for the
greater safety of our boys
War Savings Test
ANDY COLLIER'S report that Klamath invested ?2,000,
000 in war bonds since July, 1941, tells a story of
determined effort on the part of our active war savings
staff and patriotic cooperation by the citizens of this
. county.
Now comes a serious test in the matter of making a
8307,500 quota for July.

Visit of the Victory House of Standard of California,
to be at Eighth and Main streets Friday and Saturday,
win neip direct public attention to the -bond and stamp
drive. Here is a program that should be interesting as
an entertainment feature as well as helpful in making
Klamath's bond quota. People with stamp books' par
tially, filled should make an effort to complete these
books by Friday and change them into bonds to help
make the July quota.
A great many Klamath people are cooperating in
the Victory House and Victory Quota days effort. The
committee in charge of entertainment received gratifying
response from all asked to take part. A large turnout
of spectators for the programs should mark the public's
appreciation of their efforts.
If we all get in and pull, Klamath county can make
its July bond quota, and continue a record of war savings
that has been outstanding.

Hopkins, Mrs. Maey Wed
In White House Ceremony
Harry Hopkins, presidential aide,
and Mrs. Louise Gill Macy, New
York socialite and fashion writ
er, were married today In the
first White House wedding in
24 years. President and Mrs.
Franklin D. Roosevelt were pres
ent. The simple ceremony took
place in the president's oval
study on the second floor of the
White House.
The Rev. Dr. Russell J.
Clinchy of Hartford, Conn., read
ths vows. The guc;t list, in ad
dition to Mrs. Clinchy, was limit
ed to 13 members of the im
mediate families of the bride and
groom, and in addition, members
of the White House staff.
After the ceremony, the presi
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt were
hosts at a luncheon for the wed
ding guests.
Mrs. Hopkins' wedding dress
was a simple, street-length blue
crepe. Her especially designed
ewelry included earclips, lapel
pins incorporating a victory
knot motif copied from a sail
or's manual. The wedding ring
was a twist of gold rope, and
the engagement ring a cluster of
diamonds set in gold rope.
She was given in marriage by
ier brother-in-law, Lieutenant
Nicholas Ludington, U. S. N., of
Ardmore, Pa.
The family group included

Destroyers, But This One
Changed the Rule Book

(Copyright, 1942, Chicago
Times, Inc.)
July 13 (Delayed) There are
no absolutes In war, the reason
being that about the time a rule
becomes well established some
inspired idiot happens along and
blows it out of the water.
Until July 4 it was axiomatic
that submarines keep clear of
Subs could attack merchant
vessels, transports, aircraft car
ritrs, cruisers, battleships or
anything else that floated, ex
cept destroyers.
Whenever foul fortune put
them near one they would hide
and pray.
There was good reason for
this prudence and it wasn't ac
cidental. Destroyers are the
natural enemies of submarines
and every gadget and rivet in a
tin can's hull is aimed primarily
at the destruction of the enemy's
submarines. All a destroyer's
speed and nimble maneuverabil
ity, its guns, depth charges and
sound-gear are contrived to work
the death of subs.
But on Independence day an
American sub skipper in these
fog-bound waters grew bored
with the rules and blew up
three Japanese destroyers in
about as many minutes. Within
a few hours other American
subs finished off two more Jap
destroyers and by now, one sup
poses, the Tokyo admirals are
revising the rule book.
(The navy has since an
nounced the sinking of three
more Jap destroyers in Kiska by

cal military requirements are
being satisfactorily met. No out

right in these technical disputes.
The responsibility rests solely
with Mr. Roosevelt and the top
officials of the war and navy
departments, War Secretary
Stimson, his assistant, Mr. Pat
terson, Navy Secretary Knox
and his assistants. Only they
can know whether we have
good weapons and capable offi
cers. The charges made by Mr. Lyn
don Johnson and others have
brought complaints to their at
tention. If they do not cut ruth
lessly through every string of
red tape and eliminate every in

they will bring nearer to real

essential facts by now. but It
was not until today that a few
of the Incredible details found
their way out of the cold gray

The story came from the com

business, he was full of admira

of the three-for-one submarine,

Submarines don't report often
and what reports they make are
sketchy until they get home,
which they do Infrequently. Con
sequently It called for some
imagination to fill in the rough
outlines of what went on, the
commanding officer of the north
Pacific submarines said.
Certain things he knew and
these he consented to discuss
not without reluctance. The full
story, he pointed out, rightfully
belonged to the sub skipper, but
he didn't know when if ever it
could be told.
To begin with the sub was on
station in the Klska area and
proceeding under a general di
rective to seek out the enemy
and destroy same.
The enemy was known to be
present with both heavy and
light ships, but seeking him out
and destroying him was a job of
heart-breaking difficulty. First,
the Aleutian fogs customarily re
duced .visibility to a negative
quality and it was possible for
a qucstlr.g periscope to pass with
in 500 .yards of a ship and miss
It. Moreover that part of the
Aleutians which lies below the
surface is as mountainous as the
part above. There are sudden
peaks, unsuspected shoals, up
thrusting rocks, uncharted cur
rents and tremendous depths.
These are serious menaces to a
vessel whose natural medium is
far below the surfaces.
War conditions which restrict
the uses of radio and many other
safety devices further complicate
Lonesome Thought
But on July 4 the sub skipper
thought over the difficulties, ap
parently gave some lonesome
thought to celebrations back
home, and probably decided oh,
the hell with it.
"He slnnd In towiirrl Kl'kn

bay and see what the Jnps had

his command, he made his way

subs said. Ho didn't specify the
nature of "overy device."
The fog must have broken for
a moment, must have lifted Its
bluiikct-llko cover briefly, ho
thought. As the sub prowled
along the rocky const it en mo
ubreaat of a smull vovtt and the
skipper found himself looking
three ships In the eye. '
At first he couldn't Identify
the types but there wasn't uny
question about their nationality.
Their location was enough to
establish that even without the
evidence of their characturUtlc

beach to curry out tha rust of

the periscope loug enough (or

Within a thousand yards the
skipper carefully trimmed his
position and fired. The Jolt of

through the ship and the crew,
the blindest and most blindly
faithful of all seagoing men,
knew by that that they were
in fight.

The trio of destroyers was
anchored In Echelon and It didn't
require much chiiugo of course
to bring a tube to bear on tha
second. The first ship was still
breaking while the stuprfleld
crews stared from the others
when a tin fish erupted in tho
bowels of the second destroyer.
Mad Hou
By that time the men of the
third were giving a fair imita
tion of a madhouse. He wished,
the north Pacific submarine
chief said, that he could have
seen It. He thought it must
have been balm for a submar
iner's soul.
The tin can didn't get under
way, however, although that's
what the commanding officer
thought was the Indicated pro
cedure for any ship which had
suddenly seen two companion
vessels mown up in their berths.
Somebody made an attempt to
fight back at the unseen tor
mentor and two torpedoes rock
eted , from the tin can's deck
tubes and went charging across
the cove. They were wild shots
and they missed although they
passed the submerged sub close
enough to be heard.
And at about thot moment the
sub's third torpedo connected
with the last destroyer and the
fight was over almost before It
had begun.
