POLICE GIVING COURT BETTER
HELP ON BOY QUESTION
The police seem to be getting a
better understanding of the general
fitness of things in making arrests of
boys. Recently there have been so
few of the senseless arrests that
were so common in the past that
Judge Fisher today made comment
upon the matter from the boys' court
"The police are giving the court
better co-operation," said Judge
Fisher. yThere have been fewer
senseless arrests. Recently there
have been no lads put under arrest
and haled before this bench because
they whistled too loud or did some
thing equally as harmless, if boyish."
Judge Fisher a short time ago
twice from the bench "climbed the
collar" of police who put in jail
youths who had done nothing but
some boyish prank that could in no
manner be construed as a violation
of the law.
Judge Fisher made his remarks on
the police after the preliminary hear
ing of the four boys charged with
holding up Walter Schroeder, 1061
Spaulding av., and four others. The
four boys concerned are all out on
bonds ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.
They are: Frank Slitinsky, 16, 2149
W. 18th; Andrew Jarnecki, 23, 2313
W. 18th; Frank Wajczak, 18, 21l W.
