An arson school is conducted at Purdue University for insurance company fire inves- tigators. Arson cases ate generally the result of the work of juveniles, spite fires or thos~" set by pyro- maniacs. Fires delibera4~y set for -profit are.few. Arson is one of the oldest capital crimes. From the days of the Romans until 120 years ago the penalty for arson was death Today the death penalty is sought only if someone dies as a ~esult of arson. " A.V.
