tractive features of the association. He
said in part:
A lending jurist in Brooklyn recently
addressed a large gathering of social and
welfare workers. He said he was con
vinced that crime and lawlessness is on a
rapid increase and that there is no cure
unless the American home functions as
it one time did. He felt sure conditions
otherwise would continue to grow worse.
He told his hearers that he felt that
the American home as an institution for
character building work was breaking
down, largely due to the crowded and un
moral way in which families are compelled
to exist. He urged these specialists to
cease to expect the best results to come
through the writing of more laws on the
statute books, or the hirin; of more po
lice. a cure he suggested more room
and better surroundings for the children
and the heartiest co-operntion with the
Y. M. C. A., that great ally of the
home and the Church. He pleaded with
the leaders to do all in their power to
nflengthen this noble cause.
The mayor of Chicago, recently asked
his Chief of Police for an analysis of the
crime committed and a study of the type
