By CHARLES P STEWART July 22 CPA a record of utter futility in stead of the enor mously valuable one which a more courageous body of investigators might have given to the country in its place the Wick ersham a n t crime commis sions series of reports now in progress of being made public by degrees from the White House would be hard to beat The commissions prohibition re port appears to have served as the model for each suceeding report That is to gay the commissioners evidently see clearly enough what Is the matter with prohibition with the governments policy toward juvenile delinquency with alien de portations with the administration of criminal justice generally both by federal and state courts with the authorities and the peoples at titude toward present laws and with the laws they do not like to tell in plain terms what the matter is Consequently the reports merely hint and dodge conclusions or recommendations FOR EXAMPLE the report on Criminal Procedure refers to Californias handling of the Mooney Bllllngs case as shocling to ones sense of justice but nevertheless draws the line at definitely urging that it be shocked but suggests nothing to be done about it Somewhere in the report is a de tailed account of the whole Mootiey Billings affair running to 600 pages butv thus far all except a rather short summary of it is suppressed Presumably it might hurt some v bodys feelings Stories of what individual mem bers of the commission describe as abuses by the labor department of the federal deportation authority are tfnown to have been deleted from the report on that subject be cause Secretary of Labor Doak does not like them THE EXPECTATION is that al i together there will be 15 or 20 reports the commission was divided Turn to PHRC t Column Beck Goes Into Second
