(From thu .VKWH Comipondmt.} Trenton, Jan. 10:—The New Jer sey State Board of Children's Guar dians, in its annual report Just sub mitted to the governor, calls atten tion to the alarming increase in the number of children placed In the care of the board. The Increas* is especially marked in Hudson county. Mrs. Caroline B. Alexander, of Ho boken, president of the board, says she cannot believe that this shows any fundamental change In the love of parents for their children. 8be admits that there will always be a certain proportion of heartless pa rents, and then says that other causes are responsible for the increased de pendency. Among the causes she suggests are the difficulties sur rounding the immigrant, loss of work, the curse of drink, low wages I Our $3.00 MEN'S SHOES CT-X If you prefer moderate price shoes.

I i coupled with the Increased cost of living and the tendency to a disoour aged Inability to race the situation, ending to a cowardly desertion, which leaves behind those least able to solve the problem. The nickel moving picture shows and truancy are held responsible by the board for most of the arrests of children brought before the juvenile courts. The board believes that for children who have acquired these habits. It Is useless to provide an other home In the city, while In most cases the children themselves object to living In the country, thus making the problem of caring for them a serious one. The board regrets that It baa been obliged to return to the court more than half the children received. It hopes to be allowed to continue the work, however, even though successful in only a few cases, believing that a small measure of success Is amply worth while. The board recommends the change of the present poor law by reducing from Ave to one year the period at which a person obtains a legal resi dence In a community. The report says that the enforcement of the present taw often brings hardship. AT LAST!
