Storyline

Part of the March of Time series, this episode (Volume 10, Number 3) focuses on the youth of America and the challenge society is currently facing. There is a vast increase of youth crime, doubling in the two years since the US entered World War II. With fathers off to war, women are working in the factories leaving children at home for the day or after school, unsupervised and free to get into trouble. Young men and women, some working and making an adult wage, now feel that they have the right to act and do as adults. Others are trying their hands at new thrills, such as smoking marijuana. Young women are getting into trouble by getting involved with the many servicemen that they are attracted to. Young people need to remain active in the community with after school or other supervised activities Written by garykmcd
