Abuse of Laws
Hit by Speaker
1 One of the greatest short-com
1 mgs of American democracy to to
to day is a lack of respect for the
law. according to Dr John Otto
Reinemann, director of Philadel
phia's (Pa 1 probation program
and co-author of "The Challenge
J of Delinquency."
. Dr Reinemann 'was a featured
i speaker at the General Extension
Division of Floridas annual short
t course on parole and probation
1 held at the University Thursday
< and Friday.
He said that people can blame
themselves for any rise in juve juvenile
nile juvenile delinquency.
"In everyday life there exists
an all too widespread attitude of
j flouting the law, of looking foi
loopholes." he said "We deride
' the law and its enforcers We
break it without fear when It
seems safe to do so.
Americans should tpv expect
their children to respect law and
order, if they themselves only
pay it lip service, he said

The laws that govern plural words
I think are strictly for the birds.
If goose in plural comes out geese
Why are not two of moose then meese ?
If two of mouse comes out as mice

: safeties while striking obt eight.!
Phi Delt threatened in the
second and fifth innings with;
two men on, but Hankins bore
down to get out of trouble.
Sigrna Nu drew the playoff bye
after clinching bracket three with
victories over Tau Epsilon Phi,

| game promised to be a fitting
i climax to the Orange League's in in

up a mediocre 1957- baseball sea-
son by splitting a double header j

Florida finished the season with 1
a 13-11 overall record and a 7-9 1
