for a moment as she prepared to ap
ply ner cure.
Then the mother entered the pro
ceedings with a -determined look in
her eyes.
"There'll be none of your new-fan
gled cures tried on that boy," she
said very firmly.
"But don't you want him cured?
asked the court.
"Yes," she answered, but I'll do the
curing myself. "And it won t be by
any mouth-wash, but the good five
fingered treatment."
Judge Pinckney hesitated. Then
he recognized the mother's right.
The scientific crew were vanquished.
There will be no more mouth-washing
in the Juvenile Court without
o o
A new court is to be opened, spe
cializing in the cases of boys .whose
ages range from seventeen to twenty
one years, and it is reported that
Judge Thomas F. Scully will be ap
pointed judge.
The establishing of this court
will fill a long-felt want and with
Judge Scully presiding will undoubt
edly be an enormous power for good,
as Judge Scully is one of the most
humane judges on the bench.
Byt why limit it tq a court for
boys? At the present time there is
no court for girls between eighteen
and twenty-one. A great many cases
of .girls between these ages come into
police courts on rape and other
charges and such evidence, must be
given in the most sordid of surround
ings amidst the most sordid congre
gations of humanity.
A Day Book reporter, talking to
Judge Scully in the Chicago avenue
police court about a rape case in
which the girl accuser broke down
and cried because of the publicity,
Tasked him if he did not think there
Ishould be a special court for these
cases. " ,
"J think provision should be made
for girls between the ages of eighteen
and" twenty-one," the judge said.
"They are just as liable to err as
boys. And in cases of this kind, many
men go unpunished because the girl
dreads to come into a court and tell
her story.
"If I had my way, these cases
would be heard in private. I should
admit no one into the courtroom who
was. not interested in the case. There
are always a lot of morbid curiosity
seekers who flock to police courts
and' other courts to listen to the de
tails of a rape case.
"Many girls never make public
charges against men who have been
guilty of this ,sort of crime merely
because they dread the ordeal of -telling
the story in a police court."
It would seem not only a feasible
plan but a good plan to. have the
boys' court combined with a court
for -girls between eighteen and twenty-one
and have Judge Scully preside
over both. His influence and guid
ance would be as beneficial and is as
needed for .girls as for boys.
