Juvenile Crimes
Up in Ann Arbor
Figure's Reveal 878 Apprehended
For Law Violations in Past Year
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of articles discussing juve-
nile delinquency in Ann Arbor.)
Juvenile delinquency in Ann Arbor is steadily rising.
Figures revealed by Detective George Simmons of the Police
Department show that in 1953, 878 juveniles were apprehended for
law violations. Of that figure 152 were girls.
A BREAK-DOWN of figures shows that 16-year-olds made up
the largest single age group of violators. Between the ages of 12 and
15, 411 boys and girls were apprehended for breaking the law.
Exact figures of violations for 1953 were:
Traffic, 82; Destruction of property, 71; Larceny, 67; Drink-
ing, 27; Curfew violations, 39; Car thefts, .26; Concealed weapons,
11; Run-aways, 220; Breaking and entering 20; Sex crimes, 10;
Fighting, 24; Pranks, 162; BB Guns, 30; Miscellaneous, 109.
Examining the records of juveniles brought before detectives,
.Simmons found that 424 of the involved youngsters had previousE
records and complaints filed against them, but 439 committed their
first offense in 1953.
EXPLAINING the procedure of bringing charges against juveniles,
(persons under 17 years of age), Simmons disclosed that following
complaints filed against youngsters, the police can only apprehend
them. Legally, arrests of juveniles cannot be made; therefore, trials
for them cannot be held.
Following investigations of youngsters charged with viola-
tins, parents and the juveniles are warned about future offenses.
In some cases, such as traffic violations, drivers licenses are
revoked temporarily, '.but only with the consent of the parents" the
detective said.
ONE OF THE difficulties involved in juvenile cases is the atti-,
tUde children develop toward uniformed policemen, according to
members of the local department. "One of our main jobs is to get
kids rid of the idea that policemen watch every move they make,
and that we are only here to stop their fun," Simmons said.
In an attempt to rid children of this prejudice about "cops,"
Patrolman Chester Carter, with the help of other members of the
police force has arranged a year-round recreation program which
includes boys who have gotten into some trouble with the law and
boys who have not.
The aim of the program, according to Carter, is to keep kids
off the streets, to try to get boys into a healthy environment, and
mainly, to show them that the
"cops" are their friends.
Dl s S In addition to the organized
programs of basketball and base-
ball, members of the force have
been operating on the theory that

Peek Says Switch
Made To Help GOP
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -- Secretary of
the Army Robert T. Stevens yes-
terday bowed to demands by Sen.
Joseph McCarthy (R-Wis.) in the
latter's investigation of alleged
Army "Communist coddling."
Today's widely-heralded tele-
vised showdown between the Wis-
consin senator and the 54-year-
old Army boss was called off.

UNIVERSITY Prof. George A.
Peek of the political science de-
partment considered this change
of attitude in which Stevens
agreed to give Sen. McCarthy's
Senate Investigations subcommit-
tee "the names of everyone involv-
ed" in the disputed Peress case a
move to protect the program of the
Republican Party.,
"It is pretty sure," Prof. Peek
pointed out, "that important
people in the Republican Party
and the executive branch of the
government decided this was not
the proper time or issue" for a
showdown between Sen. McCar-
thy and the Army.
The Administration has a pro-
gram it wants passed and it doesn't
want to je o p a rdize its own
chances, he said.
"The Republicans have been do-
ing a lot of talking. Democrats can
fight Republicans, but when Re-
publicans fight Republicans they
endanger their own program," the
expert in national affairs explain-
"Everyone concerned is agreed
they don't want dissension within
the ranks," he concluded.
STEVENS last week had ban-
ned two generals, from answering
subcommittee subpoenas to tes-
tify on the grounds that Sen. Mc-
'Carthy's "unfair" and "abusive"
investigation tactics were wreck-
ing Army morale and prestige.
Sen. McCarthy replied that
Stevens was a "dupe."
The Senator had told one of
the Army officers - Brig. Gen.
Ralph W. Zwicker, commanding
.officer Camp Kilimer, N.J. - that
he was "unfit to wear that uni-

have contended the seating of Red
China at Geneva means the open-

Such criticism, Dulles said,
i tends to give the Communists
"a success which they could not
win at Berlin."
"The Communist regime will not
come to Geneva to be honored by
us, but rather to account before
the bar of world opinion," he said.
"THERE is no reason why we
should refuse to seek peacefully

Analyzing causes of delinquency
and the rise in violations of the
law from year to year by young-
sters, Simmons concluded that
the psychological needs of love
and understanding that every
child has are not being met. "Lack
of religion" is also an important
factor which points to the rise in
delinquency, he observed.
