B. Chadwick, superintendent of Neglected Children of Edmonton, to the auditorium of the Central school last night. .Mayor Hardie occupied the chair and briefly introduced the speaker, who dealt with the prevention of crime as it affects children under 18 years of age. Mr. Chadwick at the outset of his nddTess stated that during the past year some twenty-seven different nationalities representing sixty-three different religions had come under the notice of his department. It was not easy to understand why so much valuable machinery should be allowed to go to waste for the lack of proper care. One of the most serious problems which confronts citizens was the case of boys between the ages of fifteen and seventeen years of age. These boys must its dealt 'with and also the pTCblem of dealing with the girls. The conditions under which some girls are placed at times requires the closest attention. For instance, during the past year some two hundred and fifty girls were dealt with by the department. These girls would have been normal under proper care, but unfortunately abnormal conditions crept into,their lives and the result was anything but satisfactory. It was necessary to set up a high standard of citizenship. Work of Children's Aid Mr. Chadwick had come- to Lethbridge for the sole purpose erf forming a Children's Aid Society in order that the boys and grrls might be well taken care of and made to become good citizens. When it comes to the question of helping the child some people get their feet set and refuse to budge oue way or another. If child life is worth anything then it is up to people to do something for it. In the United States the report has just been made that sixty per cent, of the people confined in jail are mental defectives and that if these had been taken care of when they were children they would have become normal  citizens. Mr. Chadwick concluded, his remarks by urging those present to form a Children's Aid Society. Objects of Society Rev. Canon McMillen briefly explained the objects of the society, which was designed to look after the welfare of neglected and delinquent children. Principal Hodgson was appointed secretary pro tern, after which a motion by .1. H. Fleetwood to the effect that a Children's Aid Society be formed was unanimously passed. Officers Elected Previous to the election of officers in answer to a question Mr. Chadwick stated that it was desirnble that the best people in the community should be enlisted to co-operate with the work being carried on by the chief of police matron, probation officer and others. The following were the officers elected: President-J. H. Fleetwood. First Vice-Mrs. G. W. Robinson. Second Vice-H. A. McKillop. Treasurer-Principal Hodgson. Secretary-A. J. Irving. Hon. Solicitor-h. M. Johnston. It was decided to appoint a council comprising five ladies and five gentlemen to act in conjunction with the officers of the society. In order to have the council as- representative as possible it was agreed to leave this appointment in the hands of the executive. The following committee was appointed to consider the bylaws and report on same at a subsequent meeL ing of the society, namely: J. II. Fleetwood, Principal Hodgson (chairman), School Inspector Morgan and k. M. Johnston. Before the close of the meeting Mr. Chadwick urged upon the audience the necessity for developing the work of the society, the basic principle of which was the training of the child In becoming a useful member of the society. A Criticism Mr. Chadwick criticized the present location of the Detention Home which in his opinion was not a desirable location inasmuch as it was unsanitary. He hoped means would be taken in the immediate future to find a location where room could be found for the children to play outdoors. Mayor Speaks Mayor Hardie gave his experiences affecting the child problem as he knew it in the neighborhood on the north end of the city. Taking everything into consideration it was surprising to him that there were as many good children in evidence in that locality. Some of Those Present Among others who attended the meeting were Rev. A. G. Cameron, Rev. T. P. Per,ry, A. J. Irving, School Inspector Morgan . Chief of Police Davis, Sergt. Detective. Kroning, W. A. Hamilton, Director Bailey of the Manual Training School, H. A. McKillop, Dr. Mason and Probation; offiej er Lamb. A large number of the ladies of the W. C. T. U. were also onj hand and took a keen interest in the proceedings. WAN!
