Hidden con6 lairs editor s report youths seek outlets some organizations polite weigh problem Many youths in Annapolis like others of the same age throughout the length and breadth of our great nation Are restless. Most youths love their Homes and have found their guidance and comforts there from the first time they became aware of their own existence through Days spent in prayer at their Mother s Knees but unfortunately there Are other Young people who Don t look upon their Home As a Haven. They wish to get away from it and stay away As Long As possible. Participation in family pleasures chores and problems that most Young people Are glad to share parental discipline which children wish for and respect Are refused by some Young people for reasons that can t be explained. They seek out others of their own age and for Lack of something better to do roam the streets. As might be expected quite a few of them get into trouble with the Law and engage in other unprincipled acts. Moral and spiritual standards Are of Little outward concern to those who Are speeding on their Way toward juvenile delinquency. But these hard to reach Young folks need help. Some of them Don t think that society cares about them or their Hopes and aspirations be they Ever so shallow or a big dream. The easy course for the Public and those who represent it in government to take is to look at hoodlums mischief makers and those who hang around them and say too bad their parents Aren t interested in lit some instances of course parents Are to blame but this fit All families. Some restless youths seeking outlets for they know not what Are unruly and defiant of the rules of society. They defy and exasperate their parents drive them to Mufti fief mint for third straight Day Saigon Viet Nam a third straight Day the United states kept its planes out Viet Nam s skies today but blood spilled again in the Jungles and Moun full time it.

Some need to Bathe and visit a Barbershop. A few found on streets Are completely lacking in Good judgment and com Mon Courtesy. Civitano spend their Money trying to help Young people. They have operated a boy Scott troop for generations. They sponsor Junior civitan clubs keyed to Good citizenship in the Public and parochial High schools. They work with physically handicapped and mentally retarded children and help pay tuition costs for teachers wishing to increase their skills in dealing with such children. So the Civitano Are interested in Young people just As most citizens Are. Today s theme or solution seems to be to1 provide places for the Young people to meet and frolic with their own age groups under not too obvious yet firm supervision. We All know of course that not All Young people found on the streets in fact few of them Are prob Lem children. All youths like to participate in fun and recreation. Annapolis has t done much for its Young people but the hour is Here when Good and naughty Young people alike must be aware that their Community does care about them and wants them to be Happy and grow into useful citizens. Some Young people need jobs after school and during summer vacations. Some need to play organized sports some like to dance and fraternize with other youths. All desire to be recognized and talked with rather than shunned. The problem is big for All of us and most of All for Law enforce ment officers and the courts who Deal with those who completely get out of Ike with Law and order. We have spoken i recent months with Federal state county and City police about Young people and the crime wave that is prevalent in most sections of the nation including Anne Arundel county one Veteran officer said we Are living in rough times. Many of our Young people have served overseas where there has been War and killings and stories of daring deeds Are extolled. Some Young people mistakenly interpret the heroic deeds of servicemen on the Battle front As reckless actions. Some of these reports seem to Spur the wont element Here at Home into acts of disorder and worse. These youngsters like to take a dare do a risky thing and when they get away with some unlawful act their cronies land their spunk. Flaunting the Law is part of the game these youngsters play. They want to see what their elders will do about it. They wish to Shock the sedate citizen and will be Gleeful when they some police place the blame for juvenile delinquency on parents others on the leniency of juvenile courts. Otters place the full blame on the Young people themselves. Some Are willing to try anything including a term in jail. There have always been Young people who have tried to get away with certain unworthy actions. Some of them become kooks in order to get attention. Some Are lonesome because they have no Home life. Both the Mother and father work and Are tired when they arrive Home in some instances Bat this is not adequate reason for a youth to wander the streets in search of a thrill. A generation or two ago most of the fan for Young people took place in the Home yours or a Friend s. There was no thought of going out every night and staying out late. Parents who permit their Young people to roam around Lessly Are inviting trouble for their offspring. They Are to blame. But those who get into trouble most policemen we know on All Levels agree need to run into reasonably stiff punishment quickly. Usually they come eat of juvenile court police say feeling that they have had a lecture on Good behaviour and a Pat on the wrist plus Mak ing a Promise that they will do better. Mother Sheds a tear and dad looks serious while the judge is around. The most distressed person present on these occasions probably b the Poleman. Fie knows that the Young violator has t Learned a lesson became be has been dealt with too kindly. The policeman will safety predict that the lad will steal or Hurt someone again and even Taay will be caught again. The lad in t too ashamed about of fits however because there win be no publicity. His bad deeds won t be exposed. He dares to take a Chance to again break the Law. Kids who break the Law would straighten out sooner if their names got in the paper and their parents were obliged to suffer some said the officer.
