Plans Drafted
For County
Youth Guidance
At the first meeting this week of
the sub-committee of fifteen ap-
pointed by Probate Judge Jay G.
Pray to deal with juvenile delin-
quency, plans were made for the
drafting of a Washtenaw county-
wide organization.
In response to Governor Kelly's
suggestion that all interested groups
be enlisted to cooperate with' his
State Youth Guidance Committee
an original organization meeting was
was held Oct. 22, out of which the
;resent committee grew. Members
of the -sub-committee are: Dr. Ross
Allen, chairman,.Robert Bower, Ern-
est Chapelle, Mrs. Carruth Cook,
Lewis E. Corbett, Patricia Crandall,
Betty Jean Davidson, Edward Davis,
Spencer Gordon, Otto Haisley, John
L. Osborn, C. F. Ramsey, Rev. Mr.
Theodore Schmale, Andrew Smith
and Douglas Williams.
A plan for organization and for
action has been drafted by Dr. Allen,
chairman of the sub-committee, and
is now waiting approval by Judge
Pray. In connection with the actual
formation of youth guidance com-
mittees in Washtenaw County the
proposed plan asks that a youth
guidance committee be formed for
each township and for each organiz-
ed community in this county where
no other such committee has al-
ready been formed.
It is suggested that aside from the
two representatives, one adult and
one youth, from each of these or-
ganized community committees, such
officials as the Probate; Judge, Coun-
ty Commissioner of Schools, Prose-
cuting Attorney, Sheriff, Director of
County Health Department, and a
number of experts in related lines
serve as advisors and be included
in the county organization.
In commenting on the problem of
juvenile delinquency and the pro-
posed work of the committee Dr.
Allen said, "Juvenile delinquency is
the end result of the lack of solving
all the problems of youth." He
stressed the importance of a positive
approach to the problem.

Candidate Stark Convicted
At JAG Mock Court Martial

Convicted of assault with intent to
do bodily harm to a private in Com-
pany A, Candidate Stark was sen-
tenced to two years hard labor and
given a dishonorable discharge from
the Army in a mock General Court
Martial which was staged as part of
the graduation program of the Judge
Advocate General School.
Stark was accused of needlessly
sounding the call to arms and as-
sault on a private with the intent to
kill. He had shot him in the leg.
First Witness for Prosecution
The first witness for the prosecu-
tion was Lt. Colonel Bernard C. Cox-.
ey, who was commanding officer of
the JAG School's maneuvers in
Washtenaw County.
Prosecutor: Did the faculty
march and share the hardships with
the students?
Coxey: Oh yes, except us officers
of higher rank who occasionally rode
in the staff car.
Prosecutor: After you found Stark
standing over the body with the
smoking pistol, what did you do,?

Coxey: I hastily looked it up in
the Military Justice Guide, thel
School Text No. 1 and it said to
put the man under arrest, so I did.
Prosecutor: Did you ever use
Stark as bugler before?
Coxey: Oh yes, Sir, rather un-
fortunately when a visiting General
arrived he blew taps instead of
Injured Man Testifies
When Private James A. Watanabi,
ASTP, the person who had been
shot by Stark, was called to the
witness stand he hobbled down the
aisle on crutches.
Prosecutor: Do you know the ac-
Watanabi: Why that ninney head,
he shotnme.
Prosecutor: Why did Company A
take part in the maneuvers?
Watanabi: Well, the JAG's needed
someone to penetrate their lines
and we offered to take the walk to
work up an appetite.
Prosecutor: Did you get through?
Watanabi: Those shysters couldn't
lick their weight in cream puffs.
Prosecutor: What race are you?
Watanabi: Iroquois Indian.
Prosecutor: Full blooded?
Watanabi: Yes Sir, except for the
pint I gave to the Red Cross.
Prosecutor; You say that you saw
the defendent once before at the
-Pretzel Bel. What is it?
Watanabi:- That is the place
frowned- on by the faculty and the
place which the students adore. The
faculty want to go there but they
don't dar , because they're afraid
they'll be frowned on.
COxid ate Stark Testifies-
Candidate Stark testified in his
own behalf.
Prosecutor: Are you a good bugler?
Stark: An unusual one Sir, I was
known as Scorchy Starky. the hot-
test lips of Coxey's army.
The only consolation Candidate
Stark has is that in a prison camp
he will not have to know the dif-
ference between mess call and the
call to arms.
