HELPING BOYS
Editor Day Book: I have read
with interest your reference to the
boy Harold Wray. I believe there is
a great deal more opportunity to help
a boy of 10 than there is a young
man of 20, and a, good, square, lath-1
erly talk to the boys often is of great
service.
I remember several years ago in
company with a lot of boys near my
home we had a place prepared in a
vacant lot so that when winter came
it was flooded and we had a little
skating park. Some of the boys were
either swearing or using bad lan
guage and a neighbor lady complain
ed about them and I invited all the
boys and this neighbor lady into my
home and we talked the matter over.
We appealed to the boys to see to it
that there was nothing of that sort
in the future and we had no further
trouble. Arthur Burrage Farwell,
President Chicago Law and Order
League.
