Advertisement Judge Howard Kennedy Explains and Defends Juvenile Court Proceedings i Text of Letter Written to Mrs. Draper Smith in Response to Request for Information About Recent Scandal Case. "My Dear Mrs. Smith: 1 am wrltlnsr In response to your request "oi" a statement from me with reference to the action taken In certain cases recently heard be fore the, Juvenile court. These matters have received bo much publicity and have been the subject of so much discussion, much of it basgd upon a misapprehension of tho facts, that I am glad to have this, opportunity to place before you tho actual situation, so fur as It Is within my personal knowledge. "I was In Lincoln tho first few days of hast week In attendance upon the sessions of tho state conference of Charities and Correction and returned home Wednes day morning, going directly from the station to the court house. Shortly after my arrival there I was called upon by a group of parents who were greatly con cerned for their sons, tho latter being Involved, together with some young girls. In certain cases filed In tho juvenile court. I stated to them that I would not hear tho cases of the boys until after I Some Growing Children are under size under1 weight. Some grow tali and thin, others are backward in studies pafe and frail improper assimilation is usually the cause. If your children are not rugged and ruddy and rosy bubbling with energy and vim at all times, you owe them SCOTT'S EMULSION nature's concen trated nourishment to build body, bone, muscle and brain. Children need SCOTT'S EMULSION to progrei. Scott & Bownk, BloomSeld, N. J. TradMuk 12-9 had heard those of the girls, and that I would be glad to have them present so that they might themselves hear the evldenqe. "The session pf the Juvenile court are held usually nnd regularly on Saturday of' each week. In view of tho fact that it seemed apparent that the evidence In these cases would be of a delicate char acter and In order to secure as much that of the community requires that they ba reached and corrected. Ono of tho most wholesome laws wo have Is that which makes every person who con tributes to cause delinquency or depend ency In a child guilty of a misdemeanor. The proceedings against adults who "aid and abet" delinquency are In the hands of tho county attorney. It Is of the ut most importance, therefore, that he. ffr privacy as possible In a proceeding which hls dtputy. be present and hear the evl must (and should) be, open to any reput able citizen of mature years, I arranged to have the hearing that afternoon at a tlmo when no persons other than those concerned In the cases would be likely to be present. The only persons notified of the hearing wero tho girls, their parents, tho parents of the boys, nnd oi.r cf flcers. The reporters of the thr.o da'iy papers, over on the alert to discover whatever will make a "good story" and especially watchful for things sensa tional, In some way learned or guessed that a hearing was to be had and wero present In the court room. Besides these, there were, I think, threo members of the bar present as counsel. If thero wero any other persons In attendance they were there by chance. There were 3evun girls and as they were mutually Involved the cases were heard as one. The par ents, attorneys and court officers together mado up rather a numerous company, but each one of them wat there right fully and properly. "The examination was conducted, as usual, by tho deputy county attorney as signed to duty In tho Juvenile court, Mr. Noble, a young man of good Judgment, of honorable principles and much Inter ested In the work of the court, llo is married and Is himself the father of a little girl. The first step In any such proceeding Is . to learn the truth. Until we know the facts as fully as wo may, we cannot know how to deal with a situation. Moreover, tho law of the stats as well as the law of God and the good of society recognizes no difference be tween man and woman, the boy and tjie glil, In a matter In which both partlcl pate. Indeed. I have always thought tho greater duty and the larger reiponslbllity i est upon the man and the boy to honor nd to protect the girl and the woman. "To ascertain, therefore, who alio LH Involved In any particular delinquency, as a participant or as contributing to cause such delinquency, Is a jSart of tho purpos of the hearings. Ifvothers are Involved, their own wtlfur u well m dence In the case ot tho child so that he may determine whether the facts will warrant his proceeding against tho adult. And no better way has yet been devised by which to discover tho truth than by question and answer. The process may be painful and distressing, but it Is neces sary and wholesome. The examination In these cases was necessarily long and searching. It was not elthor cruel or "gruelling, and there was no cross-examination. It Is truo questions wero asked and answered which would not be permitted In a criminal case, but theso are not criminal proceedings. Tho pro cedure Is Informal, parental quite as much as Judicial, and the end sought Is correction, not punishment, Tho parentu of the children were there, and tho matron of our detention home and a woman probation officer, to aid the Judge by suggestions and advice. "After the hearings the girls wero re turned to Illvervlow Home to wnlt until after the cases of the two boys could be heard, and until It could be determined what would be tho best course to take with each ono under all the circum stances. Tho character of Ulvervlcw Home under the kindly and efficient supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Thompson Is too well known to you to require com ment. "The hour was too late to hear the case of the boys on that day, and owing to my duties In connection with my equity docket, It was' a day or two later before I had time for them. Kor the same reason as before, I heard these cases be fore Saturday, and as before, no one was notified of the hearing except those "In terested. Tho hearlrg was no more pri vate and no less so than In the case of the girls. The boys were brought Into the Juvenile court from Illvervlew Home, where they had been placed temporarily, Just as the girls were. At the closo of the hearing, the facts having been brought out fully, the boys were finally disposed of. "TU court Is not ut ui'limlted powers- there are only a few things which may bo done; n child may be placed on probation, paroled to some one, temporarily detained at Illvervlow, or placed In a stato Indus trial school and maintained thcro at tho exponBO of tho stato. Ono Important thing to accomplish was tho breaking up of tho group tho separation of tho Indi vidual meiuhers so far ns pratlcablo and tho placing them In environments whero they should bo under strict discipline nnd supervision. In the enso of tho boys this was secured by their parents plac ing them In schools npproved by tho court, and In tho case of tho girls by placing them, somo In schools, soino with cap able relutlvps, somo with their own mothers under a readjustment of condi tions. AH remain under tho Jurisdiction of the court and accoiiptalilo to It. "In tho caso of one of the boys thero was reason for special urgency on ac count of the serious Illness of his mother nnd ho was, thorcforc, brought to mo nt my chambers on last Thursday morning nnd, ns he admitted tho fncts with which he was charged, the formal order In his case was thereupon entered and he was at onco taken away by his father and placed in nn approved school. "This, I bellevtf, covers tho facts ns I know them. If thero Is anything kjIho concerning which you desire Information, I shall bo glad to respond to any Inquiry from you. HOWARD KKNNBDY.
