by over twenty per cent.
Of the major crimes tabulated
from police reports in all parts of
the country, only murder dropped
from 1952. It showed a 1.2 per cent
decline. Arrests of young people,
those under eighteen, rose 7.9 per
cent in 1953 while adult arrests in
creased 1.9 per cent-
A sampling of data from 1,174

'The Commission said the evidence
aired at public hearing on the
question showed the reduction in

convenience to the public than bene
fit to the railroad.
: If Faison had been a flag stop
between April. 1958, and March,

interest in. studying what happens

come together and in the rather

it is the usual thing for the mem
