FATHER WILLING TO GIVE SON
AWAY TO MAKE MAN OF HIM
Arthur Sandrowitz, 633 S. Marsh
field, Chicago's youngest speeder
was hailed before Speeders' Judge
Gray for autoing 35 miles an hour.
"Guilty or not guilty," asked th6
judge.
"Guilty," said Arthur. i
"Your honor," the arresting officer
broke in, "I asked him why he was
driving so fast and he answered
'cause I can't go no faster,' so I book
ed him for speeding."
"How fast can you drive, Arthur.
Can you go 50 miles an hour?" asked
the court
"Yes sir, as fast as the machine
can go."
"Where is your machine now?"
"It's in the repair shop."
"What's your business, Arthur?"
"School." At this juncture the
boy's father entered.
"What's the matter with your
boy," asked the court
'I don't know what to do with him,
judge. He's very wild. I am too
weak to tame him. He's a smart boy,
but he won't mind he minds the po
lice alright I wish you would put
him under police bonds, so they can
come and get him when he don't be
have." "Do you send him to the temple?"
asked the judge.
"Yes, and I sent him to a rabbi also
and he comes home late and tells me
the rabbi is dead. What I can do
with him?"
"I think I might take him home for
6 months and make a man of him.
Would you give him to me?" asked
Judge Gray.
"Sure, right away and I got anoth
er one, 18 years, just so like him you
can take him to I'll pay you $15 a
month for each," consented the fa
ther. The judge, however, figured the
boy would be better off at home, so
placed him under two months' pro
bation. Arthur must report every
Wednesday to the judge.
