Congressional Digest;Dec54, Vol. 33 Issue 12, p297
This article provides information on the strategies used by the U.S., state of Utah in handling juvenile delinquency. The juvenile court in Utah is entirely separate from other courts. Its judges hear only matters involving children. A judge should not be required to hear juvenile matters as well as criminal matters. Through the co-operation of the U. S. Children's Bureau the Department offers scholarships to promising individuals to study on the graduate level. Probation service is extended to all children in difficulty regardless of residence within the state.
