Editor and Publisher -- Member Caliiornia NewsPa Publishers Aseociation National Editorial Assoctation LAW IN ACTION TRESPASSING CHILDREN What are a landowner's duties toward children who come on his property without permission? In what circum- stances does he have to pay when they get hurt? A landown- er has a spe- cial duty to trespassing children to see that they do not get hurt on highly dan- gerous things about his place He can well expect them to wander on his place; it is up to him, within reason, to see that they don't get hurt. Must he pay for their in- juries? Not, for example, if the child should have recognized the dangers, or if he could look out for himself, but doesn't. What the Law Expects The law expects only what is reasonable to protect the child without excessive costs. In one case a 12-year-old girl played hide and seek on a lot a spirit of bravado," the courts have often held that the owner was not liable. In another case though, neighborhood children played In a home owner's swimming pool during the summers. In the winter he partly drained it, but decayed leaves and dirt made the pool slippery. At- though he fenced the pool off, the owner did not repair a gate that opened on to it. Playing children could see the pool from the street. One day a two- year-old boy strayed through the opening, slipped into the water, and hurt himself. Watch Out for Traps This time the court held the owner liable: He should have drained the whole pool, put in the gate, or both. Otherwise the risk was too great: The slip- pery, partly filled pool was like a "trap," easy to reach, and concealing unusual dangers dangers that a child was not likely to realize  dangers which the owner could have repaired with ease at a small cost the owner was building on. .).)
