I haven't any doubt that the high
est crime rate among boys is in those
districts where there are the fewest
And among the boys who live next
to parks or on the edge of the city
where there is plenty of room to play
there is the least amount of crime.
There is no poverty wrose than
lack of playgrounds.
Let us all join in this move. Make
it an offense against decency and hu
manity for anybody to kick about
boys using a vacant lot to play in.
Policemen are obeying orders from
property owners most of the time
when they chase boys away from
streets or vacant lots. Let us reach
these property owners.
It will mean fewer gunmen, thieves
and, petty crooks of all kinds.
Time or money can't be invested in
any better way than to produce hap
pier, healthier boys.
THE MEXICAN SITUATION
Mexico City, June 8. The Huerta
government today decided to, coun
termand the order for a blockade of
Tampico. This action by Huerta is
belieYed to have followed receipt of
word from Niagara Palls to the effect
that the United States would not per
mit the blockade. The Huerta cab
inet, of course, realized the utter fu
tility of opposing the American naval
Washington. It seems likely that
the events of the coming 72 hours
will be momentous. The Tampico in
cident will be settled within that time.
Carranza's reply to the mediators, in
which he will agree to be represented,
bu will arguet that he cannot agree
to 'a suspension of hostilities or to
consideration of Mexico's internal af
fairs, will also have been considered.
No one will hazard a guess how the
mediators will take this reply. If
they accept it, Carranza's ultimate
triumph is assured. If they reject it,
it is believed nothing can come of
mediation unless the final result is
adoption of a plan to which the U, S.
can persuade the constitutionalists to
El Paso Immediate settlement
with heirs of Gustave Bauch, Amer
ican slain in Juarez in Februaryy, will
be made within the next week by the
Mexican constitutionalist govern
ment An indemnity probaly amount
ing to $25,000 in gold will be paid.
This will close the incident.
