Mrs. Eddie Lou Allen, 13628 Turner avenue — Housewife: I think that juvenile delinquen cy can be curbed by the older people themselves. Give the chil dren something to do. Help make proper playgrounds and proper amusement parks and have games and skating for these children. This should be supervised by qualified supervis ors. Mrs. Elizabeth Hudson, 3237 West 135th street—Housewife: We should have a park and play games to keep the children busy. Lt. Onet Johnson, 13601 Turn er avenue — Policeman: I think the parents should be closer to their children and give them something to do. Mrs. Thelma Adams, 13409 Springfield avenue — Housewife. If we correct the delinquent parent, the delinquent juvenile problem will be almost solved. Parents should try to know at aii times where their children are, what they are doing and 1 with whom they are associating, ( I believe this will help to curb j the situation.
