★ We, the Women
BY RUTH MILLETT
We haven’t done kids or parents
■»ny good by popularizing and
dramatizing the words “juvenile
delinquency’’ and considering it a
national problem, like the housing
shortage.
Whether Johnny and Susie are
well-behaved kids who can be de
pended on isn’t fundamentally a
national or even a community
problem.
And all the talk we’ve been in
dulging in that the schools should
do this, the courts should do that,
the communities should do some
thing else is just putting off the
day of reckoning.
That day is when we put the
proolem right back where it be
longs--in the laps of the parents.
Parents aren’t going to like it,
of course. Because if they once
again assume complete responsi -
bility for the behavior of their
children, it is going to mean a
lot of changes in many families.
Parents will have to go back to
the old-fasnioned practice of wait
ing up fcr their kids when they
go out on dates. That is the only
way they can be sure that they
get in at a reasonable hour.
What will be even tougher on a
good many modem parents is that
they’ll have to get a little more
dignity into their own social lives.
Some day we’ll realize that the
talking gets us no place and that
this so-called national problem of
“juvenile delinqueny’’ is really a
family problem.

THE SOUTHERN BELL COMPANY'S
POSITION ON ARBITRATION
The Southern Bell Telephone Company is will
ing and eager to settle the strike by arbitration,
and if the Union will agree to arbitrate wages on
the basis of Southern conditions the strike can be
ended immediately.
We do not believe that any other basis of wage
arbitration is fair to our customers who, in the fma
analysis, pay us the money we pay to our em
ployees in wages. Eighty percent of the revenues
in the nine southeastern states in which we operate
is from business transacted within each state. Ou
employees work and live in these local communities,
and pay the prices which prevail m them.
The rates which we charge our customers for
both local and long distance telephone service wi in
the state are regulated by State authorities and are
established on the basis of local conditions, varying
in accordance with local factors.
Wages, loo, must be fixed on a southern basis
if they are to be fair to employees telephone
users alike. Telephone employee wages that
above the level of other wages paid in the com
munity are not fair to other employees who must
compete with these higher wages in order to recruit
and maintain an adequate employee force. Unrea
sonably high telephone employee wages must also
inevitably result in proportionately higher rates for
telephone service.
In order to avoid a strike with its inevitable
harm to all concerned we offered before the strike
started to arbitrate our wage rates on the basis of
comparing them with other wages paid in the south.
We proposed that an impartial panel of citizens
representing the public’s interest, along with a rep
resentative of the Union and one from the Com
pany, compose the board of arbitration. The Union
rejected this proposal and insisted upon a determi
nation of wage levels on a national industry-wide
basis.
We have repeated our offer since the strike
started. We repeat it again now, and urge the
Union once again to accept it.
Our Otter Is Fair To The Union, Fair To The Company,
And Fair To The Public.
If the Union would arbitrate on a fair basis the strike could be ended im
mediately.
