The judge has been quoted in the press as saying that motion pictures contribute to juvenile delinquency. Here Hays responds with literature, arguments, and a request for more specific information about WHICH films are accused. In following correspondence we learn that it is all a mistake, the judge has been misquoted, and motion pictures do NOT contribute to juvenile delinquency. Children might, however, steal money for admission to a picture show.
