The selection of Mr. Thurston as Chief Probation Officer by the Civil Service Board proved conclusively the wisdom of the system. Merit will always succeed. Fifteen applicants took the examination and the superior qualities of Mr. Thurston were clearly established by the reading of his papers.
The Chicago Juvenile Court is to be congratulated on having such an able man as Chief Probation Officer; he has had special training for the position.
