St. Louis, Mo., May 14.—One of
the important conventions which
will meet in this city in connection
with the National Conference of
Charities and Correction will be
that of the National Probation Offi-

composed of judges of juvenile
courts, criminal court judges, proba-
state probation commissions, will dis-
cuss the problems arising out of the
new system of dealing with criminals
and other offenders against the
law, which has come into vogue in
this country in recent years. The
convention will begin its work on
Wednesday morning, May 18th, and
continue its sessions so as not to
conflict with the sessions of the
National Conference of Charities and
Correction, until May 25th.

acquittal. This gave the doctor much
satisfaction and when they parted
