Wade N. Cashio"n, director of in
stitutions for the state welfare de
partment this week called atten
tion to the fact that several coun
ties, in North Carolina are continu
ing the practice, of jailing children
under lo vears of aue despite tin'
attorney general's ruling that such
inacarcerations are unlawful.
Citing figures for the last, six
.months of 1940 and for January
of this year, Casliion placed tin
number of child incarcerations, as
far tx) high when 31 jails in
January held 80 children under 16
years, 12 of the number being less
than 12 years.
Back in September of last year,
32 jails reported a population of
exactly 100 children and during the
last half of 1940 the figures show
ed a total of 471 children in county
"People in the counties concerned
should make all possible effort to
bring about a change in such . a
situation because it is the offspring
of some of their own neighbors
who are meeting the detrimental
contacts of association with hard
ened law-breakers," Casliion said.
"The time these boys and girls
of both races spend inside jail walls
varies from a single day to a whole
month and more in, some cases.
The charges against them are list
ed in different categories running
from 'investigation' to .'forgery' ".
Last month Macon and Edge
combe counties each held a 13'
year-old -Negro boy for "forgery".
Buncombe and Richmond coun
ties in January listed 11-ycar-old
white boys as jailed for "investi
Eight children were held in
Buncombe and Wilson ; six in
Nash ; five in Craven ; four in
