had expressed a desire to act as Big

Judge appoint Big Brothers for any
boys who came before bis court whom
he deemed worthy of the help.

The movement started with a big
rush in : this city as today there are
about eighteen men acting as Big

A young Portuguese .boy, apparently-good
for nothing, was up before
the Juvenile Court one day for some
minor offense. The Judge, thinking
that there was some good in the lad,
had a big brother appointed for him.
The big brother secured a position for
the boy, and today he is employed by
one of the larger island firms and is
making good in every way.
All of these instances go to show
the purpose of the movement and th'e
real good it does. If a man believes
that a boy in the open is better than
a boy in jail, he is in-sympathy with
the Big Brothers. If he believes that
a boy unaided cannot overcome the
tendency of unfortunate environment,
