I believe that ninety-five percent of the boys charged with delinquency today would—if given a chance—make good, decent, dependable citizens, if they could be placed with an organization that really had a sincere interest in the boys’ problems. All the boys that we are asked to take at Boy’s Ranch are from broken homes, abandoned by their father in most cases, and many never knew who he was. Is it any wonder that boys steal? Was it any wonder that Tommy borrowed the neighbor boy’s shoes and some of the money left on the teacher’s desk? He wanted candy, shows, clothing, like all the other youngsters of his community. And he went about it in the only way that was available to him.
