Juvenile crime and delinquency, encouraged by violence in television programs
and 'Comics,' are, it is said on the increase. For the small minority, this is
unfortunately true, but it must be remembered that minor crimes, all of which
are recorded and apprehended today, would have been 'overlooked' or punished by
'authority' on the spot, fifty years ago. Nowadays, all crimes, however trivial,
reach juvenile Courts and so swell the statistics.
Modem youth is often irritating, but which generation of young people is not? It may have 'oddities' which to older people seem very peculiar indeed, but, on the whole, the picture is a bright one. Young people, whether in the East or in the West, enjoy their young and, with help and guidance, will mature to be the citizens and parents of tomorrow. Good citizens and good parents, in these days will be discussing the foibles and peccadilloes of their own children - the youth of tomorrow.
