Preacher John S. Kalb believes that youth who have received sabbath school instruction do not end up committing crimes for which they are incarcerated in prison. He writes to Finley asking for data to support this idea -- How many convicts received sabbath school instruction prior to incarceration? Kalb would like to include vice prevention as one of the benefits of sabbath school instruction. Abstract Number - 1069
