Occupancy of the Washtenaw
ounty Jail reached an all-time
igh this year, according to the
958 annual report of the Sheriff's
lepartment.
The report, which contains the
tatistics up to December 1, 1958,
[owed that meals served in the
ail during 1957 totaled 67,000
while up to November of this year

more than 80,000 meals had been
served. A reduction in the cost
of the meals was also reported
with the 1957 figure being 26.9
cents per meal and this year's 21.2
cents.
Of the 853 criminal complaints
handled by the sheriff's depart-
ment, about 32 per cent were juve-
nile offenders, said Sheriff Robert
E. A. Lillie. This is a rather high

under 18 and Michigan statute
calls them anyone 16 or under.
About one-third of the juvenile
complaints were for rather trivial
Imatters, the sheriff said, and as
far as stealing automobiles, 50 per
cent of the national auto thefts
are juveniles. The county was low
with only two juvenile offenders
handled through the sheriff's office.
Death Toll at 40
The total county highway death
toll stands at 40, much higher
than last year, the sheriff pointed
out. Twenty-eight persons were
killed during the same period last
year. Twenty-three of the 40 fatal-
ities during 1958 were during Jan-
uary, February and March, the
sheriff said.
Writing drivers licenses poured
$9,332 into county coffers during
the first eleven months of this

the renewal rate is cyclic because
of the fairly new birthday-renewal
law which is having its effect this
year.
Dog Complaints Increase
A large increase in number of
dog complaints and pickups was
noted during 1958. The rate went
from 1153 complaints in 1957 to
2846 complaints in 1958, an in-
crease of about 100 per month.
The sheriff commented on the
miles traveled by members of his
staff. "We went more than 462,000
miles," he said. "That's more than
a round trip to the moon."
Petty larceny accounted for the
largest single number of com-
plaints handled by the county
sheriff, with 160 separate cases. In
addition there were 25 juvenile
petty larceny cases. Grand larceny
cases totaled 41 cases.

Hi Darlin'...
Remember last time I said I felt
a lecture coming on? Well, sweet,
hang on to your purple yarn pig-
tails-here it is! Don't you dare
NOT read on; it won't hurt a bit.
You'll thank me for it yet-or at
least you'll thank Juliette Marglen!
Remember I was talking about
your poor chipped and broken
nails? Well, Dorothy at the beauty
shop tells me she has the most won-
derful solution-or rather, Juliette
Marglen has . . . a special formula
for "problem" nails (which is an
understatement as far as yours are
concerned!) and it does sound
simply marvelous. It's made espe-
cially for "stubbies" like yours! She
says you can type or sculpt-any-
thing - all you want and still have
lovely nails!
The secret, it seems, is in two
preparations called JewelBase and
JewelSeal-and you wear them
always. Foranails as fragile as
yours, you add protective coats of
JewelSeal every other day or so.
Well, my good deed for today is
that I'm sending you a set of
Juliette Marglen's JewvelBase and
JewelSeal, which you are to use
according to directions in the little
booklet ... and if you do, I promise
you not only a bottle of Cellini
Bronze Nail Glace to match your
Oval Lipstick-but a complete set
of every one of those divine Juliette
Marglen artist's colours ! Oh, the
things we mothers have to contrive
to bribe their offspring into doing
something for their own good !
Here comes Jimmy. .. I can hear
him though he's still a block away.
More later, love now,...
