Edgar Hoover Young tbus and teertage crinunals may be pressirg their luck by increasing their violent escapades while bl,aming society for their faults. It appears that the tmbltc is beginning to gag on the steady sociological di'et of excusing the cod'uct of teermge hoodlums because "so- ciety has fNled them." Resort commun, ities racked by senseless riots and citizens who cannot venture from their homes without being assau,lted and beaten are getting fed up with pampered ,ad insolent youth gangs. Some courts ,in the troubled ,areas are tak. ing a move realis,tbc apprach in hardling those i'nolved in these outbreaks. New laws providing stiffer penal.ties are being enacted in a few phces. We can only hope that auther[.ties everywhere wi follow tls trend. Certain17, the mere .desire of young mis- creartts to have a "blast" r to "let off steam" is m) e)ctse to rawge a community and to maim .and terrorize its resklents. That ,hogday ets ad,, similar antics by carousing youths have evoked widspread concern is ot surprising. It is surprising, however, that strong public reaction did not come sooner. For ,several years, the inercas. ing volume ef criminal acts by young people ---spurred on by the lenient treatme re- ceived--has presented a clear barometric readirg of what we are now witn'essig. For instanter, frown 1960 throu2h 1964, the per- centage of yotmg ,ge-group arms for homi- cide, oreible rape, aggravated assault, rob- bery, 'burglW, ,hrceny, ,and auto theft mre than dubed the population increase per- centage ,of the same group. Arrests of pe'sons urder 18 for simple assault rose 79 percent drurrkenress and related violations 52 per- cent, dsorderly conduct 18 percent, and con- cealed weapons 17 pecert dring the same 5 years. In the ght of this shameful picture, we cannot ay that we were nt forewarned. The imm'ediate objective, of course, is to put a stop o these rumbles mad mass vandal- ism. Meanvhile, the questi'on puzzl:ing most people is what caused the principles and mor- al,s ,of some of our youth to degenerate to near. ,admal level. Recognizing ttm problem comes much easier than its solution. How- ever, of all the factors involved, I am con- Virmed oe of the .most damaging is the alse teaching vhih tends to b]ne sciety or all tle fru,strons, woes, and inconveniences, real or imaginary, visited upon our young people. Teenagers, ,and their parents, have been subjected to a fooavdy theo which codones rehelliotm cn<tuet agaimt author- ity, law ,ad order, or any vegtlatory measures which resiet their whims, wihes, deives, rd activities. Ts astoMshing he has spread rote the sehol-room, the living room, the courtroom, and now into the sets of our Nation in  form of wiM, dnken bmwks. No doubt, society Ires failed our youth, but ot in the way ma seem to think. Rather the evehctin ,has been in the fal.ue to teach them the meag of :discipline, re. straint, seMespect, ad respect for hw and order and the gts of other. C>nsequently, the lesson '.now ks bh painful anti costly. Europe and the Holy Lands- Toni Pugh Fl:g mme over the n<vy wastes of Greead from the burnrtg sands of the Smm desert! What a eotras, yet the srmw  in similar patterns to the sand and there are ni- tar rocky ornaions. Just a ,matter of eater and 150 degrees of lre! ,Egypt. When the pl'ae land- ed then I krmw that I was on foreign soft. The sameness of coloring everywlere from the sand tone of the desert, the rich, rare aroma of cmel dung, goats, spices, and exotic l)eVfmnes combine to make Egypt a unique, cokrful, and exciting country. The natives in their long white robes, and the women in their black fiat- meats were fascinating to wtch. I did all the tourist things, v the museum illed with the riches af Aneien Egypt, the exquisitely beautiful mos- ques, and the bazaars. And what an experieme the baz- aars awed mrkets w--nar- , dirty streets, chi,klren ad ,goats darting past us, d. plays of beautiful hand,made goods aongside of sands piled gh with fruit, bread, ,grams,; all bhek with flies! Vendrs everyphce trying to sell you anhing to ,eke oat an exist- mine. But the people, all happy in ppearace and patienUy resigrwd to the ,lives such as they ave. Nile River Area Then we went to tke desert, first driving along the l'iie river which was at its heght. Such lah green gardens in full produce, palm trees heavy with dates, the camel market where one can purchase a fine, frisky one for $100. Sakkar was our first stop, the tomb ,of Ti and the tombs of the Bull. The canml .boys were waiting for us and after a moment's indecision I fin- ally cFtmbed on the back of a lcamel thinn:g ghat it mighl [be, fun to pld actor. e des- sert. But Sintbu had dffee ideas; he wanted us to ,be first at our des ",tiamtian and started switching my camel on. The more I shouted at him to stop, the faster he urged my camel on .and there I was hanging on fr dear life, gMlopig aew0ss the sands. Well, I tlmuht, there ,are llenty available tmbs to bury me in. Sme- 'ho I managed to dirt an 'til we arrived and then  de- scent was a;nxther experience. Pyramids and Sphinx In the ternoon we visited the pyramids nd Sphinx and there I climbed with the oth- ers to the irmer chanher of the great pyramid which was another strenuous arid excit- ing effort. How these ancients ,designed ad bu',t he pyra- mids and temples is l an un- solved marvel. We saw .h, uge pieces of storm weig ,hha'g sev- eral tons .and cut with four dff- ferert angles and all fitting to- gether so perfectly that a piece of thin paper cou,kin.'t sl'ip between. The everfi,ng program of Sound and LigM was one o,f the most beautiful thirgs that I saw on the entire trip. The warm desert .night, lights play- ing ,on the pyramids and the Sphinx in varying colors and patterns .ad a loudspeaker giving a wonderful ntion of fihe past of Egypt combined to enchant us for an hur or nlore. Temples and Tombs The morning that I was to fly to Luxor the. regu,lar flight was in.operative so we were put on, a Russian ph,ne and taken to Upper Egypt. Here is where the most famous and fascinating of the old teJples are,,rKawnak, the Valley of the, and the Tomb of King Tutankamen. Under the blaz- i,ng sun we made our pilgrim- age with ccasienal gusts of wJd flinging sand at us. In .many of the tombs the 1aint- m,gs on the walls are as fresh as if they had just been pn- ed. The ,outer coffin of .gold, enamel, lagks hzuli of King Tutnkamen lies in the nw glass enclosed sarcophigi where his mummy was found, mad the treasures from the tomb are in the museum in Caire and some on tur now in Japan. That night my tour boy :hired a earriage and we rode back along the great temple of Karnak, which still tmlds an aura of mystery arid maw nifieance about it. Then we drove ,a/ong the Nile river, through a native quarter and I had a more intimate glimpse of the ives f those people. The next mornin,g back to Cairo to caleh the airplane for Jerusalem which ws bxatrs i I!te and delivered us .to A,m- mon in,stead. Never before had I seen .so many Aabs as there were in the airport, and they eyed us curiously. We were taken by car to Jerusalem and on the drive .descended to 1000 feet below :sea level lieh was surne.thiltg of a strain after flying 28,000 feet in our jet. Jordan Here in Jordan mos people were driving large American cars and the roads were wide ad fine. The people are tab1 and handsome and friendly. But how they hate the Israel- .tess and the Israelites .hate tbem.

Road to Jericho On the road o JeriOho we passed the inn of the C, ood Shepard, past rocky hillsides covered with Bedouin camps. The new 3e,rich is a prosper- ous .looking city with orchards of dates, oranges, papayas, and banantas. The gardens produce wordeul meBon's and vege- tobies. To on.e side is the Mt. of Temptation and on the oth- er sidei, are the ruins: of the ld vca of Jericho dating back 7,000 yea,rs. Tlmn we drove an to the river Jordan and saw a Greek Orthodox baptism and tlere was also a Catholic service be- ing ,held. From there we drove to the Dead Sea which is 1300 feet below sea level. I Imlled off my loes and waded i the .oily ater and a taste of the waler left a bitterness that was most urplean. There ave .la,ge ,areas of crusted saR an the beaches left by the waves. Qumrum We saw Qumrum where the Dea Sea Scrolls were insczibed laud could see the caves where they were found after so many 3near.

Dome of the Rock The mosque ,of the Dome of the tek is 'a very l'o.ely and large building covering the huge rock where Abra, ham f- feted 'hN ,son as a sacrifice. The foors are covered with oriental rugs and the windows were stained .lzss of jewel- like colors in oriental designs. There was so ve much to see in Jerusalem tlat I hope that I may return again and remain .longer, the better to apgreciate it all. Then I passed ,through the I,adelbaum gate into Israeli, an to Tel Aviv 'and with re- luctance caug'ht my fllight to Amsterdam, ,and so home. through the Hanson Hardware store.

Perhaps you also wonder 'heth,,er to put a "Mr." or a 'Mrs. in front of a signature, and you can get all mixed up about a "Jr." or a "St." lifter it. Then, what ,about your mid- die rme or imtial? For centuries, under eom- als are available man law a legal name emmist- al equipmert ed of one Oan or given by Eastern .name and one surnmne or College in the farn21y name. The law vie-rector of sumes that every person has a given name a, nd a SUlmame vl'.h must be stte in full on ay legal document. The law may pay Ettle at- tention to a middle nane or initial, but it is wise to use one or the other for ex- ,t act identifiat:on. You must be c 'nnt, oo. For example, one real estate buyer was ad- vised to sgn a'U pape by his f'ufl no,me, "WINm Atou Smith, Jr." to make it clear whi0h of the Bill Smiths was buying the property. If you are a "Jr." or a "Sr." such desoriptin slmuld be used to hep distin,gnih you from mesals` As far "Mr." in froat of u,r frame, that's n,ot import- ant at all. The same is true for City Dry "Mrs.", hecause it's your wife's ovn aam:e that coamts. When a woman marries, s'he takes her hsba'nd's family name. Her maiden surnarae is absolutely lost. Many xmaen icorrectly use their ,husband's full name, aId sign "Mrs. Wil- liam A. Smith," for example. ELECTRIC The correct way is for her to sign her own give,a, name and AT ITS her h,usbrd's surname, such Phone as "Joan Marie Smith." A divorced woman who waters to resume the use of her maiden name may, under some circumstances, have it re- turned to her by court order. (This tlumn ks written to inorm, not advise.
