FBI Chief Cites Increasing
Growth in Criminal Ranks

By The Associated Press
rector J. Edgar Hoover said today
the nation "is facing a potential ar-
my of 6,000,000 criminals" and an
"ever increasing wave of lawless-
ness which is feeding the criminal
ranks with a never ending supply of
"Our homes and our lives," Hoover
declared, "are daily threatened by
this vast army. Law enforcement
today is facing one of its most gi-
gantic tasks.
"The crime increase so far this
year is even greater than the 12.4 per
cent increase recorded for 1945. And
M.C.F. To Hold
Initial Meeting
The Michigan Christian Fellowship
will begin their regular Sunday after-
noon meetings at 4:30 p m. today
in the Fireplace Room of lane Hall.
Rev. Evan Welsh of the Ward
Memorial Church in Detroit will be
speaker at the meeting which is open
to all students.
Michigan Christian Fellowship is
affiliated with Inter-Varsity Fellow-
ship, an association of Christian stu-
dents in universities and colleges of
England, Canada, Australia, China
and the United States.

every 20.1 seconds last year a serious
crime was committed; every 6.4 min-
utes someone was raped, feloniously
assaulted or slain."
Hoover stressed that the "vast ar-
my" of criminals "is 10 times greater
in number than the number of stu-
dents in our colleges and universities.
And for every school teacher there
are more than seven criminals."
In an interview, Hoover outlined
what he considers the immediate
causes for "the present wave of law-
lessness," and he suggested some re-
medial measures.
He attributed the crime wave to:
"A recession of moral fortitude,
laxity in parental control, lowered
moral standards, social and economic
conditions, and abuses and malad-
ministration of the penal system."
He emphasized "laxity in parental
control," saying:
"A lack of interest in the funda-
mentals of matrimony, in the proper
rearing of children, is a cause for
concern and is contributing to delin-
"We must eradicate the cause of
crime at its roots. Small crimes gen-
erally precede the great crimes and
too often these small crimes are per-
petrated by youngsters still presum-
ably under home influence. Every
home in America must become a
sanctuary fqr good citizenship and
not, as in many instances today, a
breeding place for criminals."

Six Year


By The Associated Press
BALTIMORE, July 6-Maj.-Gen.l
M. S. Eddy, Commander of the sec-
ond Army, anounced today a six-
year plan for the training of approxi-
mately 571,195 ground force troops
of the National Guard in the United
General Eddy said actual train-
ing of the National Guard would con-
tinue to be a state function. The Ar-
my Ground Forces, however, will de-
tail regular Army instructors res-
ponsible for supervision of the train-
ing program.
These instructors will be assigned
to units down to and including the{
battalion level, the general explained.,
The six-year program is designed
to standardize National Guard train-;
ing. It will go into effect when in-
dividual organizations reach an es-
tablished quota of 45 per cent of the
required number of enlisted person-
nel and 80 per cent of the required
number of oficers.
During the first and second years
training of units and individuals will
be on the company level; during the
fifth year on a regimental combat
team and combat level, and during
the last year on a division level, ac-
cording to General Eddy.
Basic and general, technical and
tactical training will all be integrated
in the general program, with train-

ing schedules depending to some de-
gree on local conditions.
Regular Army instructors who as-
sist the National Guard in carrying
out this plan, intend to utilize every
known type of training aid used ef-
fectively during the past war, Gen-
eral Eddy said.
To End Sept. I
Approximately 100,000 enlisted men
and 12,500 officers are scheduled to
pass through Great Lakes separation
center with the final phase of the
Navy's demobilization program un-
derway during July and August.
Demobilization of all Naval Re-
serve personnel will be completed by
the deadline of Sept. 1 according to
a quota system set up by the Bureau
of Personnel, which will channel
separatees to various separation
centers throughout the country.
Quota figures set up for the next
two months show that the enlisted
personnel separation center will
reach a final figure of approximately
450,000 men separated at the end of
demobilization. The center is set
up to handle a maximum of 2,400
separatees per day.
