A germ-ridden breeding place of

this about the Juvenile Detention
Home of Cook County in a petition
presented to Victor P. Arnold, pre
siding judge of the" juvenile -court.
The petition alleged the detention
home is an Insanitary jail, a breed
ing place for contagious disease,
where children are forced to undergo
revolting physical examinations and
experiments, and where acknowl
edged criminals and unfortunate in
nocents are herded together without
attempt at segregation.
Bad girls spread knowledge of im
morality among ones who were in
nocent, continues the report.
"Every female child," reads a par
agraph of the petition, "no matter of
what age, is placed upon a surgeon'3
table and illegally forced to submit
to an examination, and evidence thus
forcibly secured is later used for the
purpose of convicting the child, all
in violation of the law and in dero
gation of the most sacred and in
alienable rights of said children."
The petition requests that Judge
Arnold or a committee of judges in
vestigate at once. Judge Arnold did
not accept the petition officially be
cause it had not been filed with the
circuit court clerk.
Rep. M. L. Igoe will Introduce bill
in legislature for electrification of
