THE TESTIMONY OF A GREAT CRIMINOLOGIST
The Maryland Casualty Company h^s been kind enough to
forward tft us a stat%ient on crime from the pen of the emi
nent detective, William J. Burns, which they are using for ad
vancement purposes but which they permit us 1$ have repro
duc^d One paragraph in Mr. Burns' article carries out the
statement made by th6 Editor in his address before
calIConference that the wave of moral retrogression1
& now sweeping over the country is the oj^growth of the after"Between
math of the war. We quote:
"It is generally agreed by criminologists and those
who closely,...follow the activities of the crooks, that the
present crime wave is a reflex of the recent great war"
as history teaches us this has been inje from the days
of the Roman wars, and this being the greatest war in
the world's history, naturally the.crime \yaye is, the
greatest. I, personally, have never knowna time when
the crook and the thief were so much in evidence as
Butwhat we most wish to call to the attention of our readers
are- the closing paragraphs Which all parents may well heed
and ponder. It is a veritable sermon. Here is the conclusion
of the world's greatest student.of scrime:
"L&ws increasing tjie degree of punishment for

at least to a degree but it is my pepsbrial opihioh that
the matter goes far beyond or far back of these con-
siderations, and criminals are frequently created be-
cause of the lack of restraint and I might almost say
lack of religious teachings and discipline
"I anfiiotf a" pessimist, but I sometftnes wonder
whether the opportunity for success along honest lines
is sufficiently brought to' the: attention of the young:'

made to see that in practical reforestation and conservation
lies their only salvation.

not intend to pose a teacher I
would like to say- that if criminal operations of all
kinds are in the future to be reduced in number, it
will be necessary for parents to exercise a much more
careful supervision of their children's education along
moral lines. For, as I have already said, it is in the
home that we must first undertake to teach them by
precept and exaniple and unless we succeed in per-
suading our children in their eatlyyjeavrs

RUINOUS FOREST WASTE
The part the family waste-basket plays in-the-depletion
of bur forests is dramatically set" forth by a writer in the Amer-
ican Forestry Magazine (Washington, C), who mournfully
informs us that every day nearly five thousand good-sized trees
find their way thither. His complaint is that the metropolitan
journals are entirely too big. Australia and New Zealand are
pointed to as places where the wholesale use of paper is not so
i lightly regarded. At a recent pulp and paper conference, in
Canada, a New Zealand delegate .waved aloft a copy of a New
York daily paper of .thirty pages,~end declared he-would be
sent to jail if'-hedare print a paper of that size in his country-
not to mention the huge American Sunday editions. The time
is at hand, we are warned, when the economic law of necessity
will force a.retrenchment in this direction. Already more than
one-third of our p.ujpwqod comes from across the Canadian
border, and Canada, profiting by: our mistakes, is now taking
steps to forbid the cutting of timber at a ratcmbre rapid than its
.growth. This means primarily that oxtrarthual importation of
Canadian pulpwood has practically reached the maximum, and
for the other two-thirds'at least we will have to look after our-
selves." If, says American Forestry, we squarely face the facts,
the! solution of the problem wilj not be difficult." It is estimated
that ahout three million cords of wood per year are manufac-
tured into paper for. nik^|tzines and newspapers. At ten cords
per acre this wpttld mean three hundred thousand acres. Sup?
posing that it take^ about forty to fifty years to grow good piiilpt
wood spruce, and allowing for possible lb&by..:fire, wind blight
failure of seeding, a tract of thirty thousand square mile's
planted with forty successive crops of timber, each crop coming
to^'imaturity, at prie year intervals would, under proper, care
aiidlmanagement, furnish a perpetual supply of pulpwood for
n(j!^spint This means an area a little smaller than the-state
oi! Ohio, but. represents less than one-tenth of the area of ouir
ciit-byer lands, most" of which are now almost entirely unpro-
^lic'tive. .i b:i: i'A '.':'-'-v'":-'-'-

U. S. JAZZ BROUGHT TO

er of San Francisc the man who set
all England dancing, inflicted Ameri
can jazz bands upon the United King
dom, and taught the stolid Britisher
how to \shake a-wicked shimmy, and
introduced the "tight little isle" to
baseball, has invaded France.
When Booker gets through, France
will be agitating the "chemise" to
American steps, to American synco
pation, played by American jazz
bands also seeing movies produced
by Americans and run by American
Within twenty-four hours after set
ting foot on French soil, Booker
signed a lease to the Apollo theater
and started a dance hall oh a plan
brand new to Frenchmen. Also in a^
25-minute deal he boughfthe second
largest movie house in Paris for three
million francs. Booker's American
quick-lunch methods of business be
wildered the Frenchmen so much they
were suspicious of him and asked to
delay the deal. It was only when he
scribbled a check for one million
francs to bind the contract that they
decided he wasn't joking.
His first venture .at the Apollo the
ater has just opened with three Am
erican jazz band's playing- American
tunes. Booker imported 42 English
girls, four American girls and fo\ir
Belgians tp teach-Frenchmen to dance
the United States way. There are also
four American men and eight English
men to teach French girls. The in
structors sit in a spetfal iriclosure
awaiting the summons. The would-be
chemise lyagger merely buys a ticket
for one franc which entitles the hold
er to one dance with the instructor.
This is the same system Booker in
troduced into England at the Ham
mersmith. Palais de Dance which had
such a, phenomenal success.
