Kennedy of the juvenile court in his pri
vate office, confessed his guilt and was re
leased uKn hta' father's promise to send
hi in awuy toB. military school at once.
In mitigation the boy pleaded that the
girls begnpvthe flirtation with him. which
led to ttfcceedlng, serious Indiscretions
One of -the lads was released by Judge
Abraham L. Su(tpn last week, when the
fatlj promised to send him away to a
military BChool. In tills case Judge Ken,.
i4ay wllH'maRe an order conforming to

told them to come Into my office and I
talked the matter over with the boy and
his father1 and their attorney. No one
would havo been denied admittance."
Juvenile Officer Bernstein said the hear
ing was a public one and It Just happened
.to he. held In the Judge's private, office
Instead of In tho Juvenile court room, in
which the six girls were tried torether.
In further explanation Rernsteln said the

stood trial, while the two boys who have
escaped publio hearings pleaded guilty.
Acting under Instruction of Judge' Ken
nedy, Bernstein will file a complaint
charging criminal assault against the boy
named by three of the girls as the first
causo of the wrongdoing. He ma be
sent to the state industrial School for
Hoys at Kearney, but will not be vent t )
the penitentiary, as he Is but 1G years
old. Bernstein said.
The Juvenile officers are searching for
other boys named by the girls; for a
chauffeur whose first name was nil the
girls could give, and for lliiuor dealers
who may be charged with veiling lluunr
to minors. One boy has agreed to takn
tho officers to a place where the boys
and girls bought liquor. Arrests are ex
