By reason of the passage by the leg
islature of the State-wide Juvenile
Court law, children under sixteen years
of age cannot any longer be considered
criminals Junder . the laws of ihis State
when they are guilty of some infrac
tion of the State or -local laws. They I
must be dealt with, not as criminals
in the courts where adult men and
women are tried and prosecuted, but
they must be dealt with, in a special
court and in a manner designed to
provide discipline, correction, and help
to correct their bad habits, just as
such discipline and help, should be pro
vided by all parents, but is not. V
The clerk of the court is now rne
juvenile court judge f or . the whole
county and he is given original juris
diction in all cases where children un
der sixteen years of age may be found
in the following classes:
fa) Who' is delinquent or who vio-
altes any municipal or State law or
ordinance or who is truant, unrully.
wayward, or misdirected or who is dis
obedient to parents or beyond their
control, or who is in danger of becom
ing so; or
(b) Who is neglected, or who en
gages in any occupation, calling, or
exhibition or is found" in any place
where a child is forbidden by law to
be and for permitting which an adult
may be punished by law, or who is in
such condition or surroundings or is
under such improper or insufficient
guardianship or control as to endan
ger the morals, health or general wel
fare of such child; or
(c) Who is dependent upon public
support or who is destitute, homeless
or abandoned, or whose custody is
subject to such controversy
The board of county commissioners
and the county board of education shall
jointly elect and pay a county super-
intendent of public welfare in each
county not later than the fifteenth of
July, whj shall be the chief probation
officer of the county and the chief
school attendance officer. And it shall
be his duty to bring to the attention of
the juvenile court all classes of chil
dren in his county who come under the
above classification. The judge shall
investigate the . case in chambers, sit
ting anywhere in the county he may
deem convenient, and after finding out
all he can about the circumstances of
the child's life, make such disposition
as he deems best for the welfare, dis- I
cipline, and training of the child. In
no case can a child of tender years be
imprisoned with old criminals nor be
put on a chain gang. He shall be com
mitted to the care of a suitable institu
tion, put under the supervision of a
probation officer or private person, who
shall from time to time make report to
the court as to his charge. A child
under sixteen can no longer be tried in
a Recorder's court except in a city of
over ten thousand population or in a
town of five thousand population wnicn
is not a county seat town, in which
cities and towns a real juvenile court
is established in accordance with the
full provisions of the law. 'All other
cases come before the clerk of the su
It will be seen at once that the activ
ities of the juvenile court and the pro
bation officer are not limited to children
who actually violate some law, but ex
tend to every child who is in need of
care which should be, but is not, fur
nished by parents or guardians. Thi
is the most progressive and humane
step that has been taken in court pro

MEDAL OF HONOR WELL WON
8 tea matter's Bravery Promptly and
Fittingly Recognized by the
United States Government.
The honor of receiving the first
medal of honor awarded during tne
war with Germany belongs to rat
rick McGuniffal. a ship's fitter, first
class, attached to the U. b. . iunt-
ington, who received this token for
extraordinary heroism. Hiarly in
September, while the ship was pass
insr through the war zone, a kite bal
loon was sent up with Lieut. Henry
W. Hoyt, TJ. S. N., as observer.
When 400 feet up, the temperature,
dropping, the balloon descended 200
feet and was struck by a squall, it
started on a nose dive to the sea and
was rolling over. Tangled ropes
overhead made it impossible for the
pilot to get out of the basket which
trailed in the water, while the man
thus held a prisoner was submerged.
With great daring McGunigal
climbed down the side of tne snip,
iumned to the ropes leading to the
basket, and -cleared the tangle.
Reaching the pilot, McGunigal
placed a bowline around the exhaust
ed man's waist and he waa. sateiy
hauled to the deck. Anothd bow
line was lowered to McGunigal and
he was taken aboard. In making
the medal award Secretary of the
Navy Daniels referred to McGuni
eral's act in rescuing this young of
ficer as an extraordinary exhibition
of self-sacrifice, as the steamntter
knew that if he failed there was no
chance of himself being saved. In
addition to receiving the medal. Mc
Gunigal was given a gratuity of
