HEAR YE! TEN NEW COMMANDMENTS FOR
PARENTS WRITTEN FROM JUVENILE COURT
A new decalogue for Los Angeles
parents has been given by Miss Orfa
Shontz, probation officer of the juve
nile court of that city.
It has long, been Miss Shontz' the
ory that parents are almost wholly to
blame for every case of delinquency.

1 Miss Orfa Shontz.
'The three parental disgraces she
sets forth as:
The new decalogue for parents is:
1. Make the children wash the
dishes, clean windows, sweep, scrub,
make beds and do ordinary house
work. Hard work will make them
2. Open up your homes to young
men or boy friends of your daugh
ters, and to the girl friends of your
. Coax your children's confi
dences. The girl who confides in net
parents is scarcely liable to go wrong.
Neither is the boy. No girl goes wrong
unless some boy goes with her.
4. Take an interest in your chil
dren. Don't be the indifferent parent
who doesn't know what the children
5. Don't be a greedy parent. The
child who goes to work on a falsified
age certificate very frequently turns
out to be a thief. It starts its busi
ness life on a very foundation of dis
honesty. 6. Don't let girls go unescorted to
parks, to skating rinks or to theaters.
7. Keep your girls pleasantly em
ployed at home. Lack of useful occu
pation often drives a girl to harmful
8. Don't let your home be, as so
many modern homes, mere places for
the children to room,, get their meals
and turn in orders for new dresses,
new suits and luxuries.
9. Help us to get more police
women. Aid in teaching the men who
trap young girls to be afraid of the
star on a woman's breast.
10. Help spread the English lan
guage among foreigners, and so pro
tect the foreign girls in our midst.
Urge the formation of legal' employ
ment bureaus, so that girls can be
placed in good places with decent
wages and their environment in
spected. Commandment No. 3 Miss Shontz
It is an excellent plan to keep in
the kitchen a bottle filled with equal
parts of linseed oil and lime water,,
to alleviate the pain of burns. Shake
the bottle well before using the lo
tion, and keep the burned parts from
the air by covering with lint.
