C. Welfare Leaders Seek To Revive Child-Care Program . By Julia Edwards After leading the country with a concrete program to prevent delin quency and then abandoning it just as other cities were adopting it, Washington is seeking to revive protective services for school chil dren. The idea is to have school teachers watch for problem children. A social worker then would go to the 1 child’s home and offer help before : the home is wrecked or the child becomes delinquent. The Board of Public Welfare 1 scrapped such a program after three ; years of demonstrated value, ac ' cording to Mrs. Louis Ottenberg, | who helped obtain a special ap propriation for the work in 1941. Revival Effort Failed. She charged that a reorganization carried out by Ray L. Huff when he became welfare director caused the woman in charge to resign. An effort to revive the program failed i in 1944. she added, when teachers and social workers split over con trol and nobody did anything. A' shortage of case workers was the only reason for abandoning the program of co-operation with the schools, Mr. Huff replied. He knew nothing of any dissatisfaction with-j in his department or of a dispute between social workers and teachers Whatever the reason, it no longer exists and the work should be re vived. said Capt, Rhoda K. Milli kan, head of the Women’s Bureau ■of the Police Department. She be lieves the progrgm should be under the Board of Education. Discussions Are Planned. At the suggestion of Capt. Milll ken and Judge Fay L. Bentley of Juvenile Court, the corrections di vision of the Council of Social Agencies has appointed a committee ’50 Rlscuss it with the Board of Edu cation. — f Giving her full support to such I a project, Mrs. Henry Grattan ! Doyle, president of the Board of Education, said yesterday that i school administrators believe it 'should be operated under the Board ! of Education by visiting teachers with training in education as well as social work. The Welfare Board also is inter ested in reviving the program. Mr. Huff said. Although not now co i operating with the schools, its .case workers are attempting to 1 straighten out home situations brought to its attention by the fam ily or neighbors, Mr. Huff empha sized. By the time a family or a neigh* bor turns to the Welfare Board, their only thought is to place the child in a foster home, and investi gation usually shows the home sit uation has reached the point where it is necessary, said Miss Goldie N. Meenes, intake supervisor. In the schools, the problem can be spotted early enough to correct, Mr. Hull noted. For six months in 1944, the case workers concentrated on cases referred by the schools, and satisfactorily adjusted 38 out of 168 casese handled, he reported. But to carry on the project, the case workers would have to neglect their regular work, and the Welfare Board decided its first responsibil ity was to the children already de pendent, neglected or delinquent, Mr. Huff explained. As to whether the schools or the Welfare Board should handle it, Mrs. Ottenberg remarked that she could not see where teacher train ing would equip a person to deal with family relations or the prob lem of adjusting a child in his own home. The important thing, how ever, is to get the job done, regard less of who does it, she emphasised. Says Efficiency Increased. As originally set up In 1941. the program was under a separate pro tective services division. The cas workers complained and the chief resigned ,when Mr. Huff abolished the division and required- them to handle routine relief cases as^well as their specialized work, Mrs.Ot tenberg said. Mr. Huff contended that his re organization increased efficiency. Many of the cases referred by the schools called for Aid to Dependent Children. Under the old setup, the protective services division could not give financial aid and a second case worker would have to visit the home. All the case workers view their ability to give financial aid as one of the useful Instruments in their bag, he said. Capt. Milliken agreed with Mrs. Ottenberg that the work should be separated. No matter how well equipped, social workers lose their vitality and much of their ability when they get bogged down irt the legal technicalities of authorizing relief, she said. She believes that the schools should handle their own cases and that the Welfare Board should con tinue to handle the more difficult cases referred to It by families and neighbors.

CAA Curbs Constellations On High-Altitude Flights By th« Associated Press The Civil Aeronautics Adminis tration yesterday disclosed that op erators of Lockheed Constellation planes have been ordered to make a mechanical change which will tem porarily prevent high altitude flying. The change—removal of a drive shaft to the cabin pressurizer—was ordered by Charles I. Stanton, dep uty administrator, after the CAA decided that a fire which forced a Constellation to land at Williman tic, Conn., ‘‘appears to have been caused” by breaking of the shaft. Mr. Stanton ordered removal of the shafts from ail Constellations pending the final result of the in vestigation. ‘‘Constellations may continue in scheduled operation,” a CAA report said, "but obviously cannot exceed flight altitudes at which other trans port planes now are operated." /jJM ROBERT MORCOM. Idea of American Peace Scored by Soviet Writer Sy A»»ciat«d Pr»»* <■ MOSCOW June 22—Eugene Tarle. leading Russian historian and arademician. sharply criticized those who speak of a postwar “American Deace ’ in a Red Star article today on the fifth anniversary of the German invasion of Russia. A similar anniversary article In Izvestia declared the war was the "inescapable result of the develop ment of world economy and politi cal forces on a basis of modern monopoly imperialism" and that when the war ended “the Soviet people, without lasing one day, re newed their historic movement to ward Communism.” Calling the Soviet Union the most advanced and virile social and state system in history, Izvestia said the Soviet people do not want a repe tition of June 22, 1941, “a repeti tion of brutal, aggressive wars which are profitable only for foolish im perialists who are ready to wade through oceans of blood only to gain world rule.” Tarle said that soon after the atomic bomb had been thrown on Hiroshima “there rang out the words American peace’ in the transatlan tic press.” One of the unlearned lessons of the war, he warned, is that no one ever has succeeded in frightening Russia with threats. Whenever reac tionary circles are attracted by a program of “world rule and loot," he said, “they fall into obvious fan tastic aberrations of thought.” Jap Enters Insanity Plea GUAM, June 22 (JP>.—Lt.

He told a news conference that If the Arabs and Jews “agree among themselves upon a government, then there is no excuse for British troop* to remain in Palestine.” He said, also, that the Security Council soon . would discuss man dates and trusteeships, at which time “the Palestine question may also come up for discussion.” Egypt May Appeal to UN. The delegate declared that the Americans “are completely ignorant about the Palestine case. They know only the Jews’ point of view. I blame the Arabs for that, because there is not much effort by Arabs in America to explain the Arab point of view, except for the ef forts made by the Palestine and Syrian community in New York.” He said he believed that negotia tions for revision of the 1936 Brit ish-Egyptian treaty would be suc cessful, but added that “if all efforts at negotiation fail, then Egypt should take her case to the Security Council.” Meanwhile the Wafdist Bloc party added its voice to those demanding that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin El Husseini, be given his “complete freedom.” »ubo witn Moslem t*roup.
