ITALY ACTS TO SOLVE JUVENILE CRIMEPROBLEM Special Courts Are Created ; 4 to Try Offenders of jj Less Than 18 Years. • BY THOMAS B. MORGAN’ L'nited Frets Staff Correspondent ROME, Nov. 15.—Italy already has faced, with a series of legislative provisions, the problem of juvenile criminality which had begun to as sume disquieting proportions here. Italian sociologists, university pro fessors and followers of the Lom broso tradition have written largely on the subject, and has been gen erally recognized that the steadily Increasing criminality of the Ju venile classes depends on the preco cious character of the general edu < cation unconsciously absorbed by ; the children and youths of today. A recent order of Minister of Jus i tice Alfredo Rocco instituted the first Juvenile correctionary courts in this country. The ministers’ order institutes • throughout Italy a special magis itrature to deal with offenders under jth" age of 18. J The magistrates selected to pre- over the tribunals for juvee mile offenders are to be chosen with jespecial care by the ministry of / justice from among the regular body *of penal magistrates. The Importance of the measure i just introduced consists in the fact ,that the Italian law for the first .time recognizes the juvenile of fender as being In quite a distinct category from the criminal of full age. ; The sittings are to be taken be jhind closed doors and the reports [of the cases will not be allowed to % be published in the press without ■special sanction of the magistrate rearing the case.

HOT BLACK IS THIS THING ON STAGE Dancing Units and the Quality of Spiritual Singing in Travesty Lifts This Show Out of the Gutter. BY WALTER D. HICKMAN’ HOT black is this edition of a ritzy floor show revue employing only Negroes. As to the dancing feet of the men with Bill Robinson’s touch this show has everything. When it comes to exhibiting the hide, this show is as undressed at times as a sardine out of Its can. In sketches at times this show Is just a suggestive nightmare, no better or worse than a bunch of white revues. The colored girls wiggle and even go beyond that movement until it becomes so hot that they should sing something about turn off the heat. They throw this fast moving body female sex stuff at you just as soon as they get through with a pro logue that depicts the cotton spirit ual and then swings into the intro duction of the "Aunt Jemima Stroll,” a late Bert Savoy impersona tion in ensemble. Then you reach the jungle and what a savage place is this place. Here 3’ou have Harriet Calloway and the Blackbird chorus doing movevents with feathers that causes one to get temperature. Let me state right here and now that these body move ments of those in] the chorus and £ Harriet Calloway Miss Calloway, as well as the feath ers, is not art. It is heat and not such darn respectable heat at that. It is just hot enough and under the province of such a show of the type that will make the box office smile and at the same time is of sufficient heat to make one tell his neighbor that here is a warm "baby.” The sketches, especially one, is flavored with that modern spirit of talking indecency or the fade out idea. The people in this cast give to every sketch a certain amount of heat that results in a suggestion more than a fact. But when it comes to steppin’, both as to the men as well as the women, this show has "it” as well as the song concerning it. I was led to believe that this Har riet Calloway person was quite the berries and that she was a second Ethel Waters. In the first act. Miss Calloway gives promise of measur ing up to that, but bad and mis placed material in the second act robs her of that honor. Here is as hot a stepping modem chorus in black and the various shades that I have ever seen. Here is a brazen show in spots that is so hot that it gets one troubled. Here is a singing organization that has melody and rather high under standing what the stage is all about. The travesty on “Porgy” is one of those things that will make you want to shout and call for more. It is the finale of the first act and it is the first act that gives this show its real spirit. At times this show is light on comedy. Here at times is the bare flesh black edition of leg show. Nothing but just that. I am telling you about certain things you will see or hear talked about in "Blackbirds.” When it comes to heat and tem perature this show has it and how. It is not art, it is just contagion. "Blackbirds” remains the heat riot on view at English’s tonight and Saturday. a a a The Indiana today introduces Charlie Davis in "Creole Nights.” Other Indianapolis theaters today offer: Charlie Murray at the Lyric, "Paris Bound” at the Granada, "Marianne” at the Palace, “Why Bring That Up” at the Ohio, “Sun nyside Up” at the Apollo, “The Pirate of Panama” at the Isis, "Welcome Danger” at the Circle, burlesque at the Mutual, and movies at the Colonial.
