System Faulty
LANSING, Oct. 22.-(A')-Governor
Van Wagoner, in a speech prepared
for delivery at the John, Augustus
centennial celebration here tonight,
described lack of juvenile and psy-
chiatric services as "definite flaws"
in Michigan's probation system.
The celebration was ordered by
legislative resolution and proclama-
tion of the Governor in tribute to
John Augustusi through whose ef-
forts the state of Massachusetts 100
years ago adopted what is generally
described as the world's first proba-
tion law.
Van Wagoner's , prepared speech
asserted probate judges "have recog-
nized the need' for direct state serv-
ice in juvenile probation and parole.
"There are only minor differences
on the needed program," Van Wag-
oner said, "and many of our state
probate judges already operate ex-
cellent programs aimed at prevention
of delinquency and use of probation
services under wise policies. Our
need is for statewide coordination in
this field'."
"Crime in a large measure is a psy-
chopathic problem," he said.. "It is
time we recognize this fact univer-
sally. Many psychopathic cases could
be successfully kept out of jail if
psychiatric treatment were a part of
social service."
