GENERAL ROBERT IVES: Thank you, Dr. Evans. I am pleased to join you in viewing this film. Juvenile delinquency is a social problem that has seriously sapped the energy of our fine, young Houstonians. Early in 1962, Houston and Harris County were chosen to receive 265 thousand dollars through the Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Offenses Control Act of 1961. The University of Houston and the community council were appointed to work with the Citizens Council of Houston in using this grant to plan the prevention and control of delinquency here. In Harris County, three percent only of our total youth population are delinquent, but these 8,000 children cost you and me thousands of dollars every year through burglary, auto theft, shoplifting, and the maintenance of correctional institutions. We as the Citizens Advisory Committee will guide the drawing of blueprints to spin the furious tide of delinquency. As volunteers, we must have the interest, the enthusiasm, and the support of every citizen in Houston and Harris County, the purpose of the Greater Houston Action for Youth Project is a noble one, and thank God we have such a project in Greater Houston.
