MR. POWELL TALKS
TO BOYS OF G. H. S.
Says More Crimes Committed
in Chicago Than in Eng
land and Wales
THIRD IN SERIES OF TALKS
March 31, Thursday, Mr. Gilbert Pow
ell, Greensboro attorney, spoke to the
boys. This is the third of a series of
talks to boys in chapel.
The speaker’s subject was “Law and
Lawlessness.” Mr. PoAvell stated that
the criminal wave is sweeping the
country and that most criminals were
not made overnight, but it took years.
When in school a person may take small
things, then larger ones, and by the
time they become a man, they are tak
ing such large things that they can not
get away with it.
He went on to tell that in 1923 there
were 9,900 people killed on account of
criminals; in 1924, 10,000 were kiled.
More crimes are committeed in Chicago
in one year than the whole of England
and Wales. “More people are killed,”
he stated, “in the United States than
ill any other place in the world because
of lawless people.”
