I MADE a definite error in the January, 1953, issue of the Good News when I wrongly attributed a statement of crime statistics contained in my article, "Is Capital Punishment God's Way!" to Mr. J.

The I953 World Almanac contains the following crime statistics: "On the average day during the first six months of i952, one larceny was committed every 26 seconds, an auto theft every 2.5 minutes, an aggravated assault every 6.33 minutes and a rape every half hour. Every 4.6 minutes there was a crime of murder, manslaughter, rape or assault to kill.
