FOR JUVENILE WORK
Oakland Detention Home Cares
for 617 Children; Boys
OAKLAND, Aug. 14.—The number of
children cared for at the detention
home in the year closed was 617.
The cost to the county of maintaining
the home was $10,000. The figures
have been submitted by Probation Of
ficer Christopher Ruess. The number
of children included three times as
many boys as girls. The average daily
attendance was nine. Each child re
mained an average of five days before
being , taken home.
The total cost of probation work In
Alameda county was $44,500. This in
cludes the $10,000 for the operation of
the detention home and these items:
Care of children in reform schools,
$7,500; care of children in other institu
tions and in private homes, $10,000;
cost of the probation office, $16,000.
Ruess reported the conditions in this
county compared favorably with those
in other counties. •The attendance at
the detention home is less than half,
in proportion to the population, ac at
the detention homes in Sen Francisco
and Los Angeles." said Ruess. "This is
due to the good moral conditions of
the community, but much of it has
been accomplished by solving the
child's problem in private, without any
Ruess said the attendance at the
detention home was largely due to
many forms of unlicensed amusements
and to untrained parentage.
"In the long run," he commented.
