San Antonio newsboys need supervision. Here are three brothers - Sasser family, 729 Porter Street. The youngest one is five years old and makes 30 cents a day. Lawrence is seven years old but "he spends all he earns" his brother says. Boyce [?], makes 75 cents a day, and has a hard time keeping the others at work. Boyce is ten years old. They all start out at 6:00 A.M. and sell until 9:00 and 10:00 P.M. nearly every day except Sunday. I found them selling after ten P.M. Boyce said "We don't go to school; got to sell papers. Father is sick." Location: San Antonio, Texas.

[Messenger?] Location: [San Antonio, Texas?]

Preston De Costa, fifteen year old messenger #3 for Bellevue Messenger Service. I ran across him and took photos while he was carrying notes back and forth between a prostitute in jail and a pimp in the Red Light district. He had read all the notes and knew all about the correspondence. He was a fine grained adolescent boy. Has been delivering message and drugs in the Red Light for six months and knows the ropes thoroughly. "A lot of these girls are my regular customers. I carry 'em messages and get 'em drinks, drugs, etc. Also go to the bank with money for them. If a fellow treats 'em right, they'll call him by number and give him all their work. I got a box full of photos I took of these girls - some of 'em I took in their room." Works until 11:00 P.M. Location: San Antonio, Texas.

He goes to school in the daytime, then works from four to twelve. Sundays half a day. Gets $5.00 a week. "I take medicines to the Red Light places several times a day. Yes I know some of the people there." This is a pretty heavy burden, both physical and moral, to place on this adolescent boy. See Hine report on messenger service of Texas. Location: San Antonio, Texas.
