MAYOK DOES NOT ESCAPK Cniion Wants Sunday Utile En forced Minister "Amused" by Onynor Letter. Prof. Jeremiah W. Jenks. who was In charge of the Immigration Commls- . ..wnU N,ave.. investigation, he- . . I Ileves lhat law should be enforced whether public opinion support It or not-enforced until! repealed. He also helloves the Job of repressing the social evil should he transferred from the po lice to a special body of citizens nnd lhat full high school Instruction as to sex relations would be good for the publtc. These were some of the conclusions stated by Prof. Jenks yesterday at the end of the New-York Fnlverslty Forum's dlKCUsston of "The Control of Vice nnd Crime." 11 was a public discussion supplementing previous talks by Mayor Oaynor and ex-Deputy Police Commis sioner Arthur Wood. Canon Chase of Willamsburg, who ha? had many tills with the Mayor, begged leave to nay that his atltude toward Sunday observance had been misstated by tho Mayor. "I never railed at Mayor Oaynor be cause he wanted to let boys play ball on Sunday," Canon Chase said. "What I told him was that Sunday law against professional baseball should be en forced. I hoie he will modify his state, ment If he has occasion to refer to the matter again. "The first thing to do In contt oil ing vice." the speaker went on. "Is to prevent Its commercialization. It Is as sullied by some persons that because Hie social evil Is an ancient one It must always exlt Hut Is the world to progress In everything hut morals?" Me said he did not believe In segre gation. He wanted fullest publicity n to "who I getting the monev" for pro tecting vice, and he thought one real tefnrm would be the elimination of such moving pictures ns turn the minds of the voiing toward cilme New York Is wickeder than It has been for tunny years, according to the Mev V A M. Mortensen. whose card says "President of the Society of In ner Mlalrin nnd Mescue Work" He had once believed In segregation, but had been convinced by observation In i many cities that there could be no j such thing. "I disagree with the Mayor about 1 vice," Mr. Martensen said "I hate to sav anything Imd about the dtv I live in. but In no other city do the women of the streets ply their trade as they do here The law is clear as to what Is Illegal nnd Mayor Kaynor Is nh soltitel.v wrong. The social evil can be suppressed. Saloons can be closed on Sunday. I offered once to take the Mayor and show him eighty-four sa loons that were selling liquor from the bar. The letter be wrote In replj was very amusing There is street after street full of j disorderly houses The police could eleau'ip New York 111 forty-eight hours I if unlet ed to but the men at the head ! refuse to give the order" ! John T Miller, n private detective. who said he had worked lu the I.exovv i and other investigations, believed the I Mayor and Mr Woods were mistaken I if they thought it was Impossible to enforce the ntitl-vlce laws. , Prof. Charles Gerstenberg of New ion. i niversny insisted that "vou can not control vice by law. it must be done by crystallized public opinion." ' It Is n shame to think that women should be tried by men for the crime of men." he added after picturing the night court for women. At the meeting on January 17 the forum Is to turn from vice to the con trol of corporations. Herbert Kno.x Smith vvlll speak.
