Kids Treated as 'Criminals'
At Juvenile Detention Home

and group work. He must have imagi-
native insight, a warm and friendly
approach to children and considerablk
executive ability."
Either Mrs. Kennett or Miss De-
maree.is on duty at all times. A mi-
crophone on the wall in the hallway
connects with a loudspeaker in Mrs
Kennett's office and serves as a
warning when disturbances arise.
The quarters of the Washtenaw
County Detention Home were not
designed for their present use, but
the home has been located there
for four years. The rooms are clean
and in order at all times. Sanitary
facilities are provided by a single
bathroom. "Prison" toilets are in
the process of being installed in
the individual rooms-the only
feature now missing to, make them
completely unbearable. A shower is
also being installed.
Children confined to the Detention
Home get good food, the same as
that served to patients in the County

Rele f Exhibit
Will Receive
6 Art Works
Over 60 works of art have been
pledged by townspeople, faculty Mem-
bers of the architecture college and
students for the Ann Arbor Famine
Relief art exhibit which will open at
8 p.m. tomorrow with a public re-
ception at Lane Hall..
Among the works to be exhibited
and to be offered for sale will be oils,
water colors, ceramics, etchings, lith-
ographs, miniatures, pastels and
sculptures. These pieces will be on
exhibit and available for purchase
daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday,
Saturday and Sunday.
According to the Famine Emergen-
cy Committee of Ann Arbor, the price
range of the pieces will permit the
public to acquire original works of
art while contributing at the sameI
time to the relief of starvation in for-
eign countries.

es on Monday, Wednesday and Fri-
iay from 3 to 5 p.m.
Children are given a physical exam-
nation when they enter and those in
geed of medical attention are placed
n the infirmary.
According to the Michigan State
Department of Social Welfare's
minimum standards for county
juvenile detention homes, "chil-
dren with long records of delin-
quency should beseprarateddfrom
first offenders. Provision should be
made for the isolation of newly-
admitted children and for those
who require further segregation."
A report made in 1945 by the Na-
tional Advisory Police Committee of
the Federal Agency declares that
"neglected or abandoned children,
even though the law makes their care
a responsibility of the juvenile court,
have no place in a detention home."
In Washtenaw County all chil-j
dren up to the age of 17, regard-
less of their offense, are placed in
the same -quarters, two to a room,
while awaiting court action.
When the Detention Home's mea-
ger facilities are taken up by their
maximum quota of six, children over
15 are temporarily lodged in the
County Jail. However, they are se-
parated from adult prisoners. Young-
er children are given make-shift
quarters at the discretion of the pro-
bate judge.
Sometimes discipline gets out of
hand at the Detention Home. Miss
Demaree told Daily reporters that
two 17-year-old youths once attacked
her in an attempt to break out.
The effect of such conditions in
Washtenaw County and elsewhere
throughout the country can be
seen in the present high crime
According to a study by the Ameri-
can Law Institute, "a tremendous
proportion of adult criminality has
its inception in conviction of crime
before the age of 21."
"Youth," the American Law In-
stitute says, "is the focus upon which
crime prevention efforts must be
wisely centered."
But Washtenaw County goes glibly
on, ignoring the future of its youth
and its own security.
Tomorrow: Washtenaw County's
Probate Court.

TU Famine
Drive Reaches
11 Student Residences,
Graduates Contribute
The University's Famine Relief
Drive collection was brought up to
a total of $2,087.62 Monday with the
submission of $119.90 for 11 student
residences and the Graduate Student
A report made yesterday at a meet-
ing of the steering committee of the
Famine Committee showed that $77.-
74 from the residents of Martha Cook
was the largest submission to the
drive. Helen Newberry Residence
turned in $28.61 and Pi Beta Phi
Sorority $7.85. The Graduate Stu-
dent Council contribution was $25.
Houses Commended
Contributing League houses in-
cluded 900 Oakland, $5.75; 433 May-
nard, $5.50; 1014 Vaughan St., $4.00;
802 Oakland, $3.56; 407 Hamilton
Pl., $2.12; 1036 Oakland, $2.10; 503
Monroe, $1.76; and 703 Haven, $1.03.
"The houses which have organized
collections have done a commendable
job so far," Rowland Westervelt,
treasurer of the Famine Committee,
said at the meeting. "But only 11
houses - all women's residences -
isn't a very good representation for
a campus with more than 100 houses."
Westervelt said that there are prob-
ably a few other houses which have
made collections but have not sub-
mitted the funds to the committee.
He requested that such funds be sub-
mitted at the Famine Relief Drive
table in the lobby of the League Mon-
day morning.
Drive Continues
The steering committee has decid-
ed to send 10 per cent of the house
collections to the American Society
of Friends for relief in India. UNRRA,
to which all other funds are sent,
does not distribute food in India.
The committee will continue the
drive until the last Monday of the
term. "During the next two weeks,
every house on campus should make
an all-out effort to collect the largest
sum possible for this urgently need-
ed food relief," Westervelt said.

A University project to provide
intensive research in scientific infor-
mation on social planning will be
started on July 1 in Flint, Michigan,
it was announced yesterday by Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven.
Two University agencies have a
part in the project, the Institute for
Human Adjustment and the Metro-
politan Community Seminar, with an
advisory commitee of Flint citizens,
as announced by President Ruthven.
The Flint project will be unique in
that research will be continuous, both
in Flint and on the campus, accord-
ing to Clark Tibbitts, director of the
Institute for Human Adjustment, and
Amos Hawley, assistant professor of
sociology and chairman of the Met-
ropolitan Community Seminar. There
will be a full-time research worker
in Flint carrying on pertinent re-
search and also assisting graduate
students and faculty members from
the University in gaining access to
sources of data.
Besides Prof. Hawley, the seminar
faculty will include: Prof. Edgar M.
Hoover, Jr., of the economics depart-
Amputee Film
Will Be Shown
An Army sound film on the reha-
bilitation of amputees at Percy Jones
Hospital will be shown at 4:15 p.m.
June 12 by the Bureau of Coopera-
tion with Educational Institutions.
The place where the film will be
shown will be determined by the num-
ber of people who express interest
in it, Dr. George Carrothers, director
of the Bureau, said. He explained
that the film is being presented be-
cause of the attention it aroused
when it was shown in Ann Arbor re-
cently. He asked that people wanting
to see it leave their names at the
Bureau's office, 12 University Hall.
There will be no admittance charge.
Continuous from 1 P.M.

ment; John A. Perkins, secretary of
the Institute of Public Administra-
tion; Prof. Robert B. Hall of the
geography department, Prof. Arthur
W. Bromage of the political science
department and John W. Hyde, as-
sociate professor of planning in the
College of Architecture and Design.
The social science research project
will seek to focus attention and also
provide adequate information on the
problems facing metropolitan areas,
with Flint as the laboratory. Typical
of the problems to be considered will
be the outward movement of popula-
tion and industry and the friction
and readjustment involved.
