$ 16. In the case of a child alleged to be delinquent within the meaning of this act, and brought before the superior court at any time before the child is found delinquent and a commitment thereunder issues, it may be detained under order of the court in any detention home provided for that purpose by any county or city and county; or it may be otherwise provided for as the court sees fit in any manner provided herein for the care of a child after the finding of its delinquency. If the court find the child to be delinquent, said court may continue the hearing from time to time, and may at any time commit the child to the care or custody of the probation officer, and may allow such child to remain in the home of such

[ocr errors]

child, subject to the visitation of a probation officer, and such child shall report to the probation officer as often as may be required, and be subject to be returned to the court for further proceedings whenever such action may appear necessary or desirable, or the court may commit the child to the care or custody of the probation officer, to be placed in a suitable family home, subject to the supervision of such probation officer and the further order of the court, or it may authorize the probation officer to board out the child in some suitable family home, or the court may commit the child for such time during its minority, as the court may deem fit, to the care and custody of some association, society or corporation that will receive it, embracing within its objects the care of dependent or delinquent children; or the court may commit such child to a state reform school, as is now, or may hereafter be provided by law in accordance with the procedure provided by law for such commitment. Provided further that should the legislative body of the county, or city and county, or of a municipality, provide a suitable place for the detention of said dependent and delinquent children, which they are hereby authorized to do, such children may be committed thereto after the adjudication of dependency or delinquency for a definite period to be specified in such order. The court may thereafter set aside, change or modify such order and may provide for a further detention in said place. Any order providing for the custody of a dependent or delinquent child may provide that all the expense of maintenance of said child, or part thereof shall be paid by the parent or parents, or guardian, of said child, and in such case shall determine the amount so to be paid, and shall determine whether or not the parent or parents shall exercise any control over said child and the extent thereof, and any disobedience of such order or interference with the custody of the child as therein determined by a parent or guardian having notice of the proceedings or of the order shall constitute a contempt of court. If it be found, however, that the parent or parents or guardian of a dependent or delinquent child are unable to pay the whole expense of maintenance of such child, the court may, in the order providing for the custody of such child, direct such additional amount as may be necessary to support such child to be paid from the county treasury of the county for the support of such child, the amount so ordered to be paid from the treasury of said county not to exceed, in case of any one child, the sum of eleven dollars per month; provided, further, that no order for the payment of all or part of the expense of support and maintenance of a dependent or delinquent child from the county treasury shall be effective for more than six months, unless a new order is secured at the expiration of that period. The court may, thereafter, set aside, change or modify any order herein provided for.
