And he will soon be too big for papa to spank
Two cartoons recommend nipping crime in the bud before it gets too dangerous. In the first cartoon, a bratty boy in short pants labeled "Crime" holds a sling shot and admires a broken mirror and windows in a house. A determined older man wearing a star on his chest labeled "the Law" rolls up his sleeves while holding a long switch. Standing between the two is a women wearing an apron marked "Sentimentalists." She orders the man "Now, Henry, you let that child alone." In the second cartoon, the bratty boy has grown into a young brute labeled "Growing Crime Menace." The older "The Law" man lies on the floor with a picture frame smashed over his head. He has a black eye and bruises. The "Sentimentalists" woman stands back and sports a black eye. The young brute proclaims "I'll show you who's boss!"
