And the emphasis is usually on the youth of the criminal. Only, of course one must;not say "criminal", but "delinquent". Remedies are being offered by the dozen, for the situation has developed into a national problem. . Of course, maybe I'm inclined to be old-fashioned and oveir-simplify matters, but it seems to me that a great proportion of this "crime-wave" stems from just one thing. We/have failed to teach respect for, law. We have made law-breaking smart bn little things, and we have underplayed'the importance of being law-abiding. ';. True, there are so many laws on the statute books that no one could .leam them all. But that is no excuse for breaking those about which we do know. Children are natural mimics—-aiid when they see those in authority over therii, evading regulations, they do the same. Traffic laws sure something ''you try not to get caught breaking, they t/hiftk—and if you do, you should know someone who would qiUishiua ticket. They-don't think of tihem as laws that it isrify'fair-to break. So when they in their teens get behind a wjieel—they- take chances and then,the papers italk ab^uc another, juvenile . delinquent. Yet—who taught'i them to break'-the law? .-., '.-.•■-■',,: ''..■■/■&', .-.'... ■' '"■'- 'sin fiction,arid film, we; have glamorized the law-breaker, Y__, the film boards insist on the idea being presented; that grime does not> pay. But-^he criminals: are shown for. the rfjosty p_rt with money to spend on luxuries, on fast cars', ify iileyer lawyers. A good policemen is referred to as an "hbiiV&t cop"-ras though he.were a rather stupid rarity. "Iiawyet-s are refe'rTeii to as "smart" if they get a guilty ^ent off^not as interpreters of the law that try to aid the innocently entangled. ... .There was a time) when the title of "Your Honor" for a judge meant just that. It was something to be won by rectitude and ethics. What have the printed word and the pictured sceriej.maxfe of it become? The same with legisla* tors. "Honorable" was a characteristic once, not just a title. Why have we let dowh our own ideals? The place to begin in wiping out a crime wave is before it starts. If children were taught that law-breaking was something that just wasn't done—that laws were made to ite kept and if they say that THEIR adults obeyed the, law, there wouldn?t be many juvenile delinquents. If law-breaking, ceased to be glamorous or funny—it would lose its appeal. That's only human nature). GOP Picks An Issue y Some months ago it appeared likely that the conduct of tiie Wat in Vietaam' and general policy with regard to Southeast Asia would become the major issue of the 1966 con- •g-rej^ional election campaigns. It is now almost certain that this .will not be the case. The major dissent from admin.s- tra$iibn policies arid handling of the conflict has been ex- j|i*e^sed by Democratics rat/her than Rejpublicans in Con- jgres& y y-fceri. Everett M, Dirksen and Rep. Gerald R. frord, GOP leaders in/the Seriate and House, reaffirmed their ejndorse- #ient of President: Johnson's Vietnam course at their recent *j^.. (^nfepi-erice on election issues. They thus wrote off jftetJriam as. an Isstie, arid focused instead on inflation. i. y>y_)bubtless this choice of alternatives is politically sound. G^njddermg the degree to Which Republicans have supported Vietnam .policy, they would find it awkward to make much riblitical hay of Uiat even if they Wanted to. Inflation, w*th its 'pirich on the voter's well known pocketbook nerve, ia a more promising issue. Whether it is a weapon keen enough tb cut heavily into the Democratic lead is questionable, however. '' ;: the inflation threat is real, and the administration dqes seem less: alert to the; danger than it might be. But riifost Americans are .enjoying great prosperity, and unless inflation Bscaiates rather quickly in the months ahead it is Sbably- not jfping to be enough to prompt a real mood for **'&. The GJOP has its work cut out for it. It Spoils The Fun Hitchhike parking on another driver's nickel is due to becoriie rarer. A, patent has been granted oh- a parking nfeter that clicks back to;zero when its curb space is em ny.| and emits noises, when a car is parked overtime. That it also sounds off wheh it is available) ib drivers or when someone t^hpe^8 with it is cold comfort. . Ji those rit^jters becoriie popular, one oif life's liMe leftsUi-es will move into lihibb.

To firid^t available and prepaid when one is.coiril«6s iarid tefe for an appointment is tohit the jackpot, '' Procedure Outlined Activity begins at 12 noon, when freshmen are to check in and report to room 109 for a welcome and briefing before being handed the written question. They will be alldted a 10-rnihute period to think,about the question and a card on which to roughly outline their thoughts before the signal to begin the hour alloted for the written answer.

Business Total Loss The building's Main St. portion, which housed Trott's Bakery and Delicatessen, was a sight of rubble, charred beams and partitions that now awaits the decision of contractors on whether it must be razed or could possibly be rebuilt.
