MEET THE NEW CHAMP 



At 11:59 P.M. on December 31, 1952 
we said goodbye to a bearded and bedrag- 
gled old man. It's surprising what one 
year can do to some people. AVhen we 
first met this fellow he was a pudgy tot 
in the pink of condition whose entire 
wardrobe consisted of a high silk top hat 
and a red ribbon. We remember him 
clearly. He waved a bottle of champagne 
at us and ^nirgled joyfully. Next he was 
bent, wrinkled and had to keep his eyes 
on the floor so he would not stumble over 
his beard. The little fellow led a fast 
life. Not that you could blame him. He 
had a lot to do, what with elections, the 
hydrogen bomb and the war in Korea, to 
say nothing of the myriad of lesser prob- 
lems. Things like that will age anyone 
in a hurry. 

We were a little sorry for the old boy 
so we raised a glass of champagne to our 
lips and drank a toast to Old Man 1952. 
It was good French champagne which we 
could not afford but someone else had 
bought it and it tasted better that wa\-. 
In fact it tasted so good that when the 
old fellow waved a sad farewell and 
wandered out the door we were already 
on our second glasas and shouting, 
"Happy New Year". It was just about 
then that this unclothed cherub walked 
in the portal. 

He was such a healthy looking kid 
you could have taken him for the twin 
brother of the youngster who made his 
debut on earth at precisely the same hour 
last year. But there was a difference. Of 
course, it may have been imagination, but 
he looked sturdier and more full of hope 
somehow. It may have been wishfid 
thinking. We can't honestly say we were 
sorry to see the old man go. He tried 
hard, but he could have done better to 
our way of thinking. But THIS kid was 



ATTENTION ALL OFFICERS 

The publishers of the Police 
AND Pe.ace Officers' Jourxal 
know you are all doing a fine job. 
And we know that hardly any 
amount of money is enough money 
in these days of rapidly spiraling 
costs of living. So we have decided 
to help out. Not much. Just a 
little. 

Begiiuiing in February the Po- 
lice AXD Peace Officers' Jour- 
nal will present a $50 defense 
bond to the officer whom we be- 
lieve has turned in the best bit of 
police work in California during 
the past month. You do not have 
to catch another Jack Dillinger to 
win this award. (Of course, that 
would help.) We will consider all 
types of police work so that a traf- 
fic or juvenile officer will have an 
even chance with the fellows in the 
homicide detail. 

Naturally we are going to need 
a little help. We read more news- 
papers than the average man but 
there are_still bound to be things 
we miss. A lot of times the little 
things are the big things in police 
work but no one hears about them. 
We want to hear about them and 
we can only through you. So . . . 
starting now, if you can think of a 
brother officer who deserves consid- 
eration for this award, please write 
us and tell us about his exploits. 
The address is The Police and 
Peace Officers' Journal, 465 
Tenth Street, San Francisco. 
Any regularly employed police or 
peace officer in California is eli- 
gible. 



different. He looked like he might realh 
have the stuff. Yessir, sitting there 
.•unong the riotous, singing guests, we de- 
cided that 1953 may be THE year. The 
little fellow really seemed to ha\e wliat 
it takes. 

We hope that 1952 was a little — quite 
:i little — nicer to you fellows than it was 
to us. \ ou won't find any of us gloating 
over what a fine 1952 it was. The Po- 
lice and Peace Officers' Journal 
may have seen tougher years, but they 
will be hard to find. The year opened 
with Opie Warner in pretty bad condi- 
tion. Then, in April, he died. A part of 
the Journal died with him. A part which 
we won't even try to get back. He was 
the Journal for so many years that it 
would be impossible to try to fill his 
shoes. All we can do is carry on and try 
to do our job in the way we know he 
woidd have wanted us to . . . and hope 
that he found peace, contentment and 
maybe a good group of peace officers in 
the land beyond the curtain. 

Next Frank Fisher took over the reins 
as editor. Poor Frank moved to a sick 
bed almost as soon as he accepted the job. 
He is staging a valiant fight and winning 
a little now. Every day they tell us he is 
gaining groiuid. Everyone we know is 
pulling for him. We hope he will be back 
in here pitching, soon. 

About the first of September the pres- 
ent editor came along. A young fellow 
who should be around for quite a while. 
{We certainly hope so inasmuch as he is 
writing this piece.) He managed to stay 
healthy for the rest of the year so things 
went a little more smoothly. But it was 
a tough year, believe us. AVe don't want 
another like it for a while. 

As we say, we hope it was a better 
year for most of you. We know, that for

THE KILLER'S CAP 



Bv Walti'R R. Hecox 



Even in San Francisco, where the 
temperature only varies about twenty de- 
grees between January and July, it is a 
little on the chilly side in February. It 
was cold on the night of the sixteenth 
with the damp, dripping mist drifting in 
from the water and sending a brisk sea 
breeze in ahead of it as an advance 
guard. On Forty-eighth Avenue, so close 
to the Pacific that one could hear the 
surf pounding only a few hundred yards 
away, the street lights glowed dimly 
through the gloom, each one surrounded 
by its own moist rainbow. 

It was eight o'clock and already the 
shades had been pulled in most houses 
along the block as the people who lived 
on the fringe of the city blocked out 
the elements and barricaded themselves 
within the warmth of their homes. Only 
in the little store at 1515 Forty-eighth 
Avenue was there a light, one bright 
bulb gleaming bravely, sendings its feeble 
beams unprotected into the peculiar San 
Francisco dew. 

Within the store Mrs. Albina Chabot 
Voorhies prepared to close. She was a 
small woman, sixty-five years old, quiet, 
friendly and proud of her independence. 
And although she had locked the front 
door and was winding things up for the 
night, everyone in that section of the 
Richmond district knew that the store 
never really closed. 

Mrs. Voorhies was a friendly woman, 
anxious to please any of her neighbors 
whom she knew or trusted. A little on 
the timid side after dark. Prudently 
timid. She realized that she was too old 
to defend herself and vulnerable to at- 
tack. Promptly at eight o'clock each ni:^ht 
she locked the door to the little store and 
refused to let anyone she did not recog- 
nize in. This system was no burden to 
her neighbors. There was no one in the 
area she did not know and like. Some- 
times, it seemed, the door opened a> 
much after the official closing hour as 
before. But the locked door did start 
rumors. 

Harmless rumors, it seemed. It is hard 
to say where they originated. The best 
guess was the children in the area. 
Youngsters, sent by their mothers to the 
store for the missing package of sugar 
or a cube of butter, darted through the 
gloom toward that single, gleaming bulb 
and waited breathlessly outside while the 
little old lady came from her tiny apart- 



ment in the rear to open the door. There 
was an arrangement which rang a bell 
in the apartment. All of the kids knew 
that. They heard it ring frequently when 
they came to the store during daylight 
hours. If it worked then it would work 
at night, so why close the door? That 
was their reasoning. The answer was 
simple. There is a reason for everything. 
Mrs. Voorhies' reason for locking the 
door was that she had "heaps of money" 
hidden on the premises. The rumor 
spread. Soon everyone in the neighbor- 
hood was sure that the elderly woman 
had a hoard of cash hidden on her prem- 
ises. An innocent enough tale on the sur- 
face. But a dangerous one for Mrs. 
Voorhies. There is always someone will- 
ing to believe such a story who dreams 
of getting his hands on the money. May- 
be a professional yegg. Or, as often as 
not, an amateur. A juvenile with 
twisted ideas. 




Inspector Louis De Mattei 

It was a young man who stood in the 
fog outside the little store on the night 
of February sixteenth and watched the 
woman rearranging her shelves as she 
prepared to retire to her apartment. A 
well dressed yoimg man, who had shield- 
ed himself from the chill air with a grey 
overcoat and a matching golf cap. 



He was not an impressive looking 
figure. His face was flat, with high 
cheek bones and narrow, tapering eyes 
that drooped a little at the corners. It 
was hard to tell if they were grey or 
brown. His lips were thin, with a slight 
cruel twist at the corners. Straight 
brown, dull hair was brushed straight 
back from a low forehead. He watched 
the woman, strangely fascinated, shiver- 
ing a little perhaps from the cold . . . 
or perhaps because of his plan. 

Before long he drew a deep breath, 
stepped forward and tapped on the glass 
door. The woman peered into the dark- ■ 
ness, waited until she was sure she rec- ' 
ognized him, then turned the key in the 
lock. 

"What are you doing here so late, 
Charlie?" she inquired. 

The youth grinned amiably. "Nothing 
wrong with a man coming to look at his 
own store, is there?" 

The woman laughed gaily and swung 
the door wide open. "Come in, Charlie. 
But don't tell me you're a man. Why, 
you're still just a little boy to me. And 
it will be a long time before you own 
a store like this." 

The youth's laugh echoed hers. "I 
guess you're right, Mrs. Voorhies. Any- 
way, I'm a little boy tonight. I just 
happened to be passing by and noticed 
you were open. Somehow my sweet tooth 
hit me. I want some cookies. Chocolate 
eclairs if you have any." 

"Of course I have some, Charlie," the 
woman replied. "When will the day 
come when I don't. Wait a minute and 
I'll get you some. But they are expensive, 
you know." 

"I can pay for them," he assured her. 

"Of course you can, Charlie." Mrs. 
Voorhies paused and stared at the late- 
comer curiously. "AVhat in the world is 
making you shake like that? ^Vhy, your 
teeth are almost chattering." 

"It's cold outside tonight," the youth 
answered. "I wouldn't be surprised at 
all if my teeth did chatter before I get 
home. It's a long way from here." 

"It certainly is," the woman agreed. 

The young man looked seriously when 
the woman paused. His eyes narrowed 
slightly. 

"I still want the eclairs," he reminded 
her. 

"Of course," she replied. "I'll get 
them for you right now."

MURDER STORV — These pictures are, of course, very old and not as good as they could he. They were copied from photographs, now 
yellowed with age, which were contained in Louis DeMattei's scrap book. They do illustrate graphically the gruesome crime which Louis, 
with the slenderest clue possible, solved. The picture to the left shows the V'oorhies living room. The place where the floor is ripped through 
is the place where Alvina Voorhies' body first rested when the fire started. The picture to the right shows the bathroom where the elderly 
woman was dragged, flaming, to die. 



Editor's note: 

On February 1, 1953, Louis DeMat- 
tei will retire from the San Francisco 
Police Department. He will move to his 
home in the rolling hills of Sonoma 
county and enjoy the sunlight, the coun- 
tryside and a tranquil life. He will be, 
for the first time in three and a half 
decades, a private citizen. But he will 
not be forgotten in San Francisco. Not 
by the department nor by the legion of 
persons in San Francisco who knew or 
knew of him. 

Louis DeMattei's adventures as a San 
Francisco policeman have been varied 
and exciting enough to satisfy any motion 
picture producer. No movie ever dared 
to show an episode as bloodcurdling as 
the rampage of Mad Dog Kelly or as 
exciting as the chase for the killer which 
culminated in his capture. The fanatical 
bombings of St. Peter and Paul's Church 
form another chapter in Louis' past. 
There are other stories. Scores of them. 
In fact there are so many that the Po- 
lice .'\ND Peace Officer's Jourx.al 
is going to do a series of them. From 
the looks of things the series ought to 
last for years. 

We are not going to start with the be- 
ginning of Louis' career and go through 
it chronologically. Instead, for the first 



installment, we have chosen a case which 
is, if not the most exciting, is by far the 
most interesting. It hinged on a clue so 
slim that the average detective story 
reader would not believe the yarn. Too 
incredible. But those of you who remem- 
ber the case will know it is true. You 
will not forget the grey golf cap very 
soon. 

The case was not Louis'. He was never 
asigned to it. Rut he solved it. At the 
time Chief Anthony J. Quinn gave him 
full credit for the capture. And the way 
Louis did it will surprise you all. 



Pedestrian Responsibilties 

Each year thousands of pedestrians 
are killed while walking along our city 
streets or country highways. While the 
major part of the responsibility for the 
reduction of this tragic toll rests with 
the drivers of automobiles, trucks, and 
busses, a considerable part of this re- 
sponsibility must be assumed by the pe- 
destrian himself. 

And yet, points out the Public Safety 
Department of the National Automobile 
Club, there are always these pedestrians 
who persist in leaving it all up to the 
motorist. Walking down city sidewalks 
they will suddenly wheel and dart out 



between parked cars right into the line 
of traffic, paying no attention whatsoever 
to the cars that might be bearing down 
upon them. Prepossessed with their own 
thoughts they will step off curbs without 
looking this way or that, will walk 
against the lights more often than not. 
Or strolling down country roads, they 
will walk far out on the pavement with 
their backs turned to the fast moving 
stream of traffic, always assuming that 
the motorist will see them and will man- 
age to avoid an accident. 

The wise pedestrian doesn't walk so. 
When walking near or through traffic 
he crosses only at intersections, he always 
crosses with the lights, and never makes 
the mistake of crossing on the diagonal. 
Before he steps off any curb he takes a 
good look up and down the street to see 
what cars may be coming and to make 
sure that the drivers see him and what 
he is about to do. When walking along 
the highway he always walks well off 
the pavement and on the left side facing 
into oncoming traffic. And when walking 
at night, he wears or carries something 
white and moves with extra caution. 

^Valking near traffic is always a heads- 
up game and the pedestrian who treats 
it as such is the pedestrian who manages 
to stav alive.

WOMEN PEACE OFFICER'S 



The Women Peace Officers Associa- 
tion of California met December 3rd at 
Eaton's Restaurant in Arcadia, home 
of Florence Wilson, President of the 
Association. 




President Florence Wilson 

The tables were decorated in the 
Christmas Motif of Red Candles and 
Red Berries and Lipsticks were placed at 
each place setting as favors. Hand deco- 
rated place cards were used for all spe- 
cial guests. 

Officials Present 

All of the City Officials of the City 
of Arcadia turned out to honor the asso- 
ciation president, Florence AVilson. The 
meeting was opened with a salute to the 
Hag led by David T. Sweet. Police- 
woman Lucille Stroh of the Conipton 
Police Department gave the Invocation. 
A fried chicken dinner with the trim- 
mings was served followed by the intro- 
duction of guests by President Florence 
Wilson. The official welcome was given 
by Mayor Suachin of Arcadia, who 
stated he was honored and happy to 
welcome the \Vomen Peace Officers of 
California to Arcadia, and stated he 
hoped he could do so more often. 

Entertainment 
Policewoman Daisy Storms of Los 
Angeles was program chairman and in- 
troduced Charlie Picard of the Grand 
Old Opera, who entertained the group 
with humorous stories and sang "Chatta- 
nooga Shoe Shine Boy," and "You Are 
My Sunshine." 



Policewoman Daisy Storms also intro- 
duced Cal Stewart, Superintendent of 
the Intake of the Los Angeles County 
Probation Department, which is the 
largest Probation Department in the 
world. Stewart stated that he hoped to 
bring better relations between the pub- 
lic, and peace officers, probation depart- 
ments and all other agencies which deal 
with crime. He also stated there could 
be no price set on how much a good 
peace officer is worth, referring to both 
rnen and women officers, that it was un- 
limited, but worth much more than they 
are now paid. 

Prize Offered 

He spoke of the close relationship 
between the Probation Department and 
the peace officers and said he had been 
termed by some people as a glorified 
policeman. He said he was dissatified 
with the title of peace officer, which 
rarely is understood by the public and 
offered as a challenge for the best 
thought to promote better public rela- 
tions a book over a hundred years old, 
dated 1831 with five dollars hidden 
among its pages. Two one dollar pages 
and a three dollar page will be found 
m the book. Each page contains import- 
ant quotations for peace officers and 
probation officers. Stewart closed his 




Margaret Boyd 
speech by saying, "It is the Peace Offi- 
cers who are the soldiers who stand on 
the battleground between the citizen 
and the criminal and danger." He added 
that the Peace Officer who so often 
IS termed "Cop" needs the support and 
helping hand of the public. 



Miss Boyd Speaks 

Policewoman Margaret Boyd of the 
Los Angeles Police Department was 
then introduced and repeated her speech 
which she gave to the International 
Convention of Chiefs of Police, with a 
few minor changes to fit the persons 
present. 

The Women Peace Officers Associa- 
tion selects a women of outstanding 
achievement in law enforcement, who 
has served her community well and 
presents her with an Honorary Life 
Membership in the Women's Peace 
Officers Association of California. At 
this time, Judge Lille of the Superior 
Court was presented with a membership 
and a pin patterned after a Peace Wo- 
man's Badge. 

The meeting was closed with scores 
of good holiday wishes, and door prizes 
made of plastic by the husband of the 
President of the Women's Peace Offi- 
cers Association. 



THREE BILLION GALLONS 

Gross revenues derived from the 4J^ 
cent state tax on September distributions 
of approximately 345,000,000 gallons of 
gasoline and other high test motor fuel 
amounted to $15,558,044, according to 
George R. Reilly, First District Mem- 
ber of the State Board of Equalization. 
Tax refunds by Controller Thomas 
H. Kuchel during the month to purchas- 
ers of fuel for nonhighway use totaled 
$1,530,768, or 9.8 per cent of the gross 
tax liabilities accruing during the month, 
leaving net revenues of $14,027,276. 
These net revenues were 7.0 per cent 
above those of a year ago. 

During the first nine months of 1952 
almost three billion gallons of taxable 
motor vehicle fuel were distributed, an 
increase of 214,900,000 gallons or 7.7 
per cent over the distributions during the 
corresponding period of last year. 

Diesel fuel used on the highways dur- 
ing September was reported at 14,436,- 
132 gallons, virtually the same as the pre- 
vious month's usage but 17.3 per cent 
above the figure for the corresponding 
month of 1951. The users of this fuel 
were taxed under a law that applies only 
to low-test motor fuels used on Califor- 
nia streets and highways. In addition, 
deficiency assessments were made on 
857,705 gallons of previously unreported 
fuel used prior to September. The com- 
bined tax, penalty, and interest amounted 
to $697,937 as compared with $587,629 
a year ago and $691,079 a month ago.

I'M READY, COACH 



It's an old gag. One that might be

of the City of Stockton. 

Like the man who sat down at the 
piano, some people laughed when Carlos 
Sousa announced that he was going to 
run for sheriff. His opposition came from 
four other men and the incumbent. 1 he 



spected him for it. Anyway in November 
of 1946 he was elected Sheriff-Coroner 
of San Joaquin County. And on Janu- 
ary 1, 1947, his work started. The spirit 
of fair play which Sousa had taught on 
the recreation fields of Stockton had paid 
off. 

There was a lot of work to lio. The 
old San Joaquin Sheriff's office was effi- 




SHERIFF CARLOS A. SOUSA AND HIS SQUAD OF SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY SHERIFF'S RESERVES. 



Sure, you've all heard it. A friendly 
sort of kidding. But when Undersheriff 
Michael Canlis addresses the phrase to 
Sheriff Carlos A. Sousa of the San Joa- 
quin County Sheriff's office, he is kidding 
on the square. Back in the not so distant 
limbo when the sheriff's vocation was 
recreation and Michael was a high school 
boy, the situation existed. 

Michael's football coach was none 
other than Carlos A. Sousa. 

A lot of water has passed under the 
bridge since Coach Sousa showed young 
Canlis the difference between the Notre 
Dame box and the single wing. LTntil 
the spring of 1946 Sousa directed all his 



race took on a somber touch during that 
summer when the incumbent died. There 
may have been those in the contest whose 
conscience was troubled a little when the 
officer passed away. Sousa's conscience 
was clear. He had kept his campaign 
clean. Before announcing his intention 
he had visited the incumbent in his office 
and informed him of his intentions. 

"I want to win," he announced. "But 
I want a clean fight. ^ ou will not get 
any name calling or mud slinging from 
me. There is no need to roll politics in 
the gutter." 

Sousa kept his word, and apparently 
the people of San Joaquin County re- 



cient, but needed a thorough going over. 
Modernization w-as one need. Improved 
working conditions for the sheriff's depu- 
ties and office staff were also needed. Ex- 
Coach Sousa pitched into his new job 
with vigor. 

His first move was to place his entire 
personnel under civil service and give 
them a shorter work week. Slowly but 
surely the wages of his men climbed 
while their working hours shrunk. To- 
day a San Joaquin Deputy works a forty- 
hour week. Instituting the short week 
forced Sheriff Sousa to hire 21 additional 
deputies this year, but it also provided

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



Dec. 1952 - Jan. 1953 



ASSOCIATED PUBLIC COMMUNICATIONS OFFICERS 

Director George Hippely, President Art McDole, Secretary 



The regular monthly meeting of the 
Associated Public Communications Offi- 
cers, Inc. was held at Vahl's in Alviso, 
Calif, on December 11, 1952. Robert 
Mason of Santa Clara County was host. 

The meeting was called to order at 
11:15 a.m. by Vice President Jack At- 
kinson, in the absence of President Hip- 
pely. Thirty-eight members and guests 
were in attendance. 

A letter from Mariposa County re- 
questing clearance on 154.89 mc for 
mobile use was read. A request from 
Sacramento County requesting the use 
of 45.34 mc for a base station at the 
Prison Farm was presented by McMur- 
phy and discussed. A letter from \'uba 
City requesting the use of I55.13mc for 
a base standby frequency was read and 
discussed. It was suggested by LeBouef 
that they be required to monitor this fre- 
quency to avoid interference with other 
stations in the Tri-County Net. 

All requests were approved by Capt. 
McMurphy Chairman of the Frequency 
Committee with the above mentioned 
stipulations. Granted on motion by Kel- 
ler, seconded by LeBoueff. 

J. Mansfield Lewis of Marin County 
reported satisfactory progress on the 
Procedure and Operating Committee. 

McMurphy reported the Point to 
Point to Point System working good. 

The secretary read a letter from the 
Chief of Police, Chico and called the 
members attention to several recent re- 
visions in Part 10 Rules and Regula- 
tion-^. 

^Valter Keller commented on a re- 
cent ham radio contact with President 
Fox of CPRA. Seems the bovs down 
south are going to change the nam" of 
th"ir Chanter to conform with the acf'on 
tal'cn at San Francisco. 

The secretary reported he had bf-i 
asked to serve on a committee for re- 
vision of the Nation APCO Constitu- 
tion and By-Laws and asked for ideas 
and help. 

Frank Roach from the Sfate Office of 
C'vil Defense discussed RACES. He 
asked the members to get their commun- 
ications plans in as soon as possible. 

F. V. Sloan, Engineer in Charge FCC 
San Francisco entered into the discus- 
sion and clarified some points. 

The Bell and Light system was dis- 
cussed by McMurphy. He stated the 
basic idea was okey, but some trouble had 
been experience with false alarms. Carl 
Holmes, FT and T representative of 
OCD told of changes that were being 
made to prevent future false alarms. 



1 he meeting was adjourned for lunch 
at 12:30 p.m. 

The meeting was reconvened at 1 :25 
p.m. 

Robert IMason introduced several 
guests including a delegation from San 
Joaquin County who were there to study 
problems in fire communications. 

Nominations for officers were then 
adopted. The following were nominated : 
President, John Atkinson ; Vice Presi- 
dent, Art McDole ; Secretary, Tom 
Bayley ; Member of Board, J. M. Lewis. 

Nominations were closed until the 
January meeting, at which time they 
will be reopened and elections will be 
held. 

The secretary then read a proposed 
amendment to our Constitution and By- 
Laws. This amendment is for the pur- 
pose of clarifying types of membership. 
It will be given the second reading in 
Tanaarv and voted upon at that time. 

Bob Miller of Pacific Gas & Electric 
commented on proposed amendments by 
Federal Communications Commission 
Dockets affecting the 72-76mc. bands. 
Television apparenth' is still attempting 
to chop away at Public Safety Services. 
The feeling was held by the members 
that National should take notice of this 
Docket and strongly protest same. 

Commercial members reporting were 
Crabtree, Deetkins, Riley, Robbie and 
Griese. 

John Hartnett offered Burlingame for 
the January meeting. Accepted. 

There being no further business, the 
meeting was adjourned at 2:10 p.m. 

November Meeting 

The refjular November meeting of the 
Asociated Public Communications Offi- 
cers, Inc., was held at Martinez, Calif., 
^1. Nov. 13, 1952. The host was George 
Burton of Contra Costa County. 

After an inspection tour of Contra 
Costa County's excellent new Communi- 
cations Center the meeting was called 
to order at 11:15 a.m. by Preident 
George Hippley. Thirty-seven members 
and guests were in attendance. 

The minutes of the October meeting 
were read and approved. 

A letter from EI Dorado County was 
read and discussed. Fred Deetkin of 
General Electric is to contact El Dorado 
and explain the Association's action re- 
garding their request for frequency clear- 
ance which was denied at last month's 
meeting. 

President Hippley gave a brief sum- 
mary of the National Convention. He 



stated he had sent the National Secre- 
tary a check for $1872.93, this being the 
amount of profit on the Convention. 
President Hippley also said he had re- 
ceived several nice letters from some of 
the fellows who had attended. 

Requests for frequency clearance on 
154.89 from Cit\' of Los Banos, and on 
155.31 mc from City of Martinez were 
read. These were approved by Mc- 
Murphy and granted on motion by Bay- 
ley, seconded h\ Burton. 




niRF.cTOR Hippely 

A request from the City of Tulare for 
clearance on 155.07 mc for Intersystem 
use was read. Captain McMurphy re- 
quested a clearance on 156.03 mc for 
Alameda County. This to be used in lieu 
of 155.07 to avoid possible interference 
with the Valley Inters\'stem Net. Both 
requests were granted on motion by 
Mason, seconded by Le Bouef. 

Ihe meeting was then adjourned for 
lunch at 12 :15 p.m. 

Ihe meeting was recon\ ened at 1 :25 
p.m. 

The following commercial members 
gave reports : Fred Deetkin and Bill 
Nj'e, General Electric ; Zacharia of Zack

Lancet, English medical journal, says 
that there are two places in the world 
where the climate is equable — one is 
Assouan, Egypt, and a little town in 
the foothills of the Pacific in California 
called Los Gatos. 

L. M. Phillips, Chief of Police of 
Los Gatos, California, is the sort of a 
man who makes one feel that policemen 
are friends. 

While not large, the population is 
about 4,900, Los Gatos has problems 
not often found in cities many times as 
large. The climate is so equable, the 
hills so appealing and the views so won- 
derful that a problem is created by the 
man>- world famous peoples as well 
as the ver\- wealthy who make Los Gatos 
their home. 

Few Holdups 

There are also many who try to live 
as they think the former live and there- 
by a problem is created. One that is 
only handled by the smooth, efficient 
friendliness of the Chief and his well 
trained men. 

Because it is near to Oakland, San 
Francisco and San Jose one would 
think Los Gatos would be a natural 
hideout for the lawless and with its

Chief L. M. Phillips of Los Gatos 

The men of the force have had the 
usual officers' training which is required 
of California peace oiBcers. 1 here are 
the county crime labs and the state labs 
to assist in checking technical evidence 
when a crime has been committed. The 
cooperation of the Santa Clara County 
Sheriff's office with the Los Gatos Police 
is good. And the forces of both work 
hard to see that the cooperation stays 
good. 

Through this cooperation the city pa- 
trol cars work on twenty-four hour 
basis. They are connected by the county 
radio control during the "ofi" hours of 
the local operator. 

Traffic Problem 
To this setup has been added the 

training devised by Chief Phillips that 
halts the burglaries and robbery prob- 
lems at their source. To do this the men 
are trained to spot new faces, strange 
actions and to jot down the license num- 
ber of any different car. 

Twice recently, culprits have been 
apprehended within a few hours after 
their crimes due to this observation-jot- 
ting plan. 

Until recently the big headache of the 
town has been the traffic jam created by 
the Santa Cruz, San Jose, San Fran- 
cisco and Oakland traffic on weekends. 
It is not unusual for more than 20,000 
cars to pass through the intersection of 



Santa Cruz Avenue and Main Street on 
a day. Sometimes a double line of traffic 
is backed up for miles while the cars roll 
slowly through this bottleneck. 

It took three officers from the small 
Los Gatos department to handle the 
traffic. 

Chief Phillips with the help of the 
townsfolk finally got the State to help 
install a self operating stop and go 
signal at the critical intersection. Now 
the headaches belong entirely to the mo- 
torists. And the Chief's boi,s get a rest. 

Dog Poisonings 

An outbreak of dog poisonings during 
the past few years has been a constant 
headache to Chief Phillips. As many 
as a dozen dogs annually have been 
poisoned within the Los Gatos city lim- 
its. So far the poisoner has not been 
apprehended. In some cities this would 
be a minor matter. In Los Gatos it is 
not. The people there (as elsewhere) 
love their dogs and the untimely deaths 
are the cause of considerable indignation. 
Chief Phillips is working hard in an at- 
tempt to stop them.

WINTER DRIVING RULES 



Too many drivers learn the hard way 
about how to combat winter driving haz- 
ards, according to Professor A. H. 
Easton of the University of Wisconsin. 
They learn by that sickening sensation of 
an uncontrolled skid, warm blood, cold 
sweat or hot tears. There's an easier 
way, he said. 

Easton, director of the university's 
automotive safety research project and 
a test expert for the National Safety 
Council's Committee on \Vinter Driving 
Hazards, declared that a little study and 
observation of six fundamental rules will 
prevent many thousands of annual traffic 
tragedies and troubles during snow-ice 
weather. 

Streamlined Summary 

These new rules are a streamlined 
summary of many important recom- 
mendations contained in a new booklet 
just published. Entitled "Here Are The 
Facts" or "Basic Winter Driving 
Rules," it's free for the asking by writ- 
ing to the National Safety Council, 
Chicago 11, 111. It can be read in about 
fifteen minutes according to Prof. 
Easton, although it sets down for the 
first time the results of 11 j-ears of test 
research by the Council's committee. 

The booklet is aimed at reducing the 
high death and accident rates resulting 
from inadequate traction and reduced 
visability — the major winter driving 
problems from November through Feb- 
ruary. 

Six basic rules for safe winter driving 
follow : 

1. Get the feel of the road. Try 
your brakes occasionally, while driving 
slowly and away from other traffic, to 
find out just how slippery the road is. 

2. Slow doivn. Adjust your speed to 
road and weather conditions so that you 
can stop or maneuver safely. 

3. Keep zv'indshield elear. 'V'ou must 
see the danger and avoid it, so be sure 
your headlights, windshield wiper blades 
and defrosters are in topnotch cotidition. 

4. Use tire chains on snoiv and ice. 
They cut stopping distances about in half, 
and increase starting and hill climbing 
traction by four to seven times. Even 
with the help of chains, however, lower 
than normal speeds are a must on snow 
and ice. 

5. Pump your brakes to slow doivn 
or stop. Jamming them on can lock the 
wheels and throw your car into a dan- 
gerous skid. 



6. Folloiv at a safe distance. Keep 
well back of the car ahead so you have 
room to stop. Remember that, without 
tire chains, it takes three to 12 times as 
far to stop on snow and ice as on dry 
concrete. 

Other important findings by the com- 
mittee, composed of 33 experts in fields 
of automotive engineering, law enforce- 
ment and traffic safety education, in- 
clude the following: 

Longer Skids 

All tires, except big truck tires, are 
now made largely of synthetic rubber. 
Synthetic tires wear better, perform nor- 
mally on dry or wet pavements and have 
other advantages. But on snow and ice 
they skid about 8 percent farther and 
have 14 to 35 percent poorer forward 
traction ability than prewar natural rub- 
ber tires. 

Special winter tires of 25 different 
types were tested for traction. The tests 
showed that while some tires gave im- 
proved traction under certain conditions 
over conventional tires, their overall im- 
provement is not great enough to war- 
rant less caution when driving on slip- 
pery surfaces. The same tests also 
demonstrated that special winter tire 
treads do not approach the performance 
of reinforced tire chains, and the report 
concludes that "while some of these 
tires can be considered a palliative, they 
certainly are not the answer to severe 
snow and ice conditions." 

Chains Are Best 

Describing tire chains as the best self- 
help available to the driver, the com- 
mittee said reinforced tire chains reduce 
braking distances on both snow and ice 
about half, increase forward traction on 
:ce about seven times, and on packed 
r.now out pull conventional tires nearly 
four times. 

While most tests have been made on 
passenger cars, research in the last two 
years has been concentrated on the jack- 
knife hazard to tractor semitrailer trucks 
on snow and ice. The report summarizes 
as follows : 

"It has become evident from this re- 
search that the best means of preventing 
jackknifing is to keep all tires rolling, in 
order to maintain steering ability and at 
the same time get a maximum grip for 
slowing or accelerating. Due to increased 
traction provided, it was found that re- 
inforced tire chains made jackknifing 
virtually impossible with a tractor semi- 



trailer combination on level lake ice at 
20 miles an hour. Similarly, it was 
found that recovery from jackknife 
angles of as much as 90 degrees was 
possible with front or all-wheel drive 
tractors." 

The Council's tests were conducted 
last winter on frozen lakes and winter 
roads near Clintonville, Wis. They were 
under the direction of Prof. Ralph A. 
Moyer, research engineer. Institute of 
Transportation and Traffic Engineering, 
University of California, who is chair- 
man of the committee, and T. J. Car- 
michael, administrative engineer of the 
General Motors Pro\-ing Ground. Fur- 
ther tests will start February 2. 



TAPE PROTECTS DRIVERS 

Many tragic accidents are caused by 
cars with burned out tail lights, tail lights 
that are hard to see by the driver behind 
or cars that are just not seen. There is 
absolutely no reason for accidents like 
this anymore because the Safelite Divi- 
sion of Sylvan Sweets Company in East- 
on, Penna., has come out with an inex- 
pensive Safelite reflecting auto bumper 
kit made with Scotchlite. 

It's easy to apply. All one has to do 
is peel off the paper backing and apply 
it to the bumper. It reflects a brilliant 
red when headlights hit it and it's proven 
that it is 85 times brighter than a white 
painted surface. Kits of silver and red 
are also being made up for use on bi- 
cycles. 

Many orgam'zations like the P.T.A., 
Civic Clubs, Junior Chambers of Com- 
merce, etc., and police departments are 
sponsoring drives to put reflecting tape 
on cars, trucks, buses, bicycles and even 
on police uniforms in order to cut down 
the accident rate. 

Police departments and safety groups 
are overwhelmingly in favor of these kits 
because it adds an extra margin of safety 
to vehicles and it has been proven by the 
United States Army, United States 
Navy, Marine Corps and the Coast 
Guard. It is also being used on highway 
barricades, mail boxes, walking sticks, 
policemen's gloves and many other things 
where protection is needed. 

Over 5,000 kits were sold in the City 
of Richmond, Va., in the first week that 
they were shown. Many other cities are 
praising the safety factors on the cars 
using these kits.

National Safety Council Tests reveal 

facts to help you avoid accidents and traffic tie- 
ups this winter. These four charts show average 
results. Skid distances of bare tires vary as much 
as 130 per cent, however, with changing tempera- 
tures or sunshine. At 4 degrees below zero tires 
without chains can stop on ice in about 110 feet 
at 20 m.p.h., but the same car, at same speed, 
takes about 250 feet to stop on same ice at 30 
degrees above zero. This variable has led many a 
driver to disaster. Temperatures of 15 degrees 
above zero or higher put a moist film on ice or 
hard -packed snow which, without tire chains, 
greatly increases skidding.

Above are National Safety Council facts, based on tests by its Committee on Winter 
Driving Hazards. For comparison, normal braking distances of autos on dry and wet 
concrete are only about 21 and 26 feet respectively. Study of each chart may save your 
life, or at least prevent trouble. For each "braking distance" above you must add 22 
feet, which is distance traveled during average "reaction time" to get your foot on brake.

of Civil Procedure deals only with the 
presentation and handling of cases in 
court and the Penal Code with crimes 
only. 

2. Sex crime convictions rank low be- 
cause arresting officers fail to properly 
present such cases through lack of ex- 
perience in the handling of such cases. 

3. Every person remaining present at 
a place of riot except officers and persons 
assisting them in attempting to disperse 
the rioters is guilty of a misdemeanor. 

4. The police courts have jurisdiction

6. The order of proof in criminal ac- 
tions is regulated by law. 

7. In so-called "entrapment" cases 
both the officer who created the situation 
and the party arrested are law violators. 

8. Moral certainty is sufficient to es- 
tablish guilt of a felon. 

9. Unless a burglar is armed with a 
deadly weapon or so arms himself while 
in the commission of the offense or as- 
saults a person while in the commission 
of the offense he cannot commit burglary 
of the first degree of a dwelling house 
in the night time unless the dwelling 
house is inhabited. 

10. The maximum punishment for 
burglary of the first degree is the same 
as the maximum punishment for robbery 
of the first degree. 

11. If one person maliciously and will- 
fully disturbs the peace or quiet of an- 
other person by loud noise, the doing so 
is a misdemeanor. 

12. Failure of a sheriff to pay over 
fines coming into his hands according to 
law and within twenty days after receipt 
thereof is a misdemeanor. 

13. The maximum punishment for 
first degree arson is the same as the 
maximum punishment for first degree 
robbery. 

14. Major crimes have fallen off dur- 
ing the past five years. 

15. The phrase "night time," as used 
in the chapter of the Penal Code dealing 
with the crime of burglary, is defined and 
has the same meaning as the words 
"night time" have in the Vehicle Act of 
this state. 



16. Every person, except a police offi- 
cer, having a "pick lock" in his posses- 
sion when arrested is guilty of a misde- 
meanor. 

17. The driving away of the personal 
property of another is larceny. 

18. The stealing of a goat is grand 
larceny. 

19. Sex troubles are the principal rea- 
son for the disappearance of minors from 
their homes. 

20. Every persons who enters a house 
with the malicious intention of resisting 
an officer is guilty of burglary. 

21. Night time burglaries are first 
degree burglaries. 

22. Day time burglaries are burglaries 
of the second degree. 

2i. A complaint for any misdemeanor 
triable in a Police Court must be filed 
within one year after its commission. 

24. If a police judge is satisfied that 
a public offense triable before him has 
been committed he must in all cases issue 
a warrant for the arrest of the accused. 

25. The crime of forgery has shown 
an increase during the past five years. 

26. The stealing of a mule valued at 
$150.00 is petty larceny. 

27. Second degree burglary may be 
committed in the night time. 

28. If a change of venue is legally 
granted, the case must be transferred to 
another justice or judge of the same 
county. 

29. For all public offenses the court 
must determine all questions of law 
which may arise at the trial.

jury may decide questions of both law 
and fact. 

32. In a police court, after hearing all 
the evidence, the jury may render their 
verdict in court, without retiring, if they 
so wish. 

33. A complaint may include more 
than one allegation but every allegation 
made in a complaint must be proved. 

34. It is legal that a witness may re- 
fresh his memory in court from any 
memorandum which he may have in his 
possession. 

35. Neither party to a trial may im- 
peach its own witness. 

36. So-called "Contraband Control" 
is maintained for the securing of public 
revenue and the protection of public 
health and morals. 

37. In a trial, secondary evidence, as 
such, is not admissible. 



38. Common Law rules that penal 
statutes are to be strictly construed 
govern our Penal Code interpretations. 

39. Words used in the Penal Code in 
the so-called "present tense" include the 
past as well as the present. 

40. Conditions may warrant charging 
dog stealing as grand larceny. 

41. X buys brass used by a railroad 
company but fails to use due diligence 
in the matter of ascertaining that the 
seller has a legal right to sell the brass. 
X is open to a charge of felony. 

42. John Doe embezzles property in 
Oregon and is arrested in San Francisco 
on the charge. He may be tried and con- 
victed here. 

43. Forging of numbers on an engine 
may be discovered because the stamping 
of the numbers caused chemical changes 
in the metal when the automobile engine 
was being numbered at the factory. 

44. Every person who, in the City 
and County of San Francisco, saves any 
property from fire, and for two days 
thereafter willfully neglects to notify the 
Fire Marshal regarding such property 
is guilty of a felony. 

45. First degree burglary can be com- 
mitted in the daytime only if the party 
so doing is armed with a deadly weapon 
or so arms himself while in the commis- 
sion of the burglary, or assaults any per- 
son while committing such burglary. 

46. Committed in the night time, a 
burglary of a dwelling house might, un- 
der certain circumstances, be only second 
degree burglary. 

47. The jury must reach a verdict on 
a case submitted to them before they can 
be legally dismissed. 

48. A coroner's jury must, as a mini- 
mum, have nine jurors. 

49. There can be only one inquest on 
any one (dead) body. 

50. One of the principal uses of a so- 
called "Traffic Flow Map" is to show 
whether additional traffic patrolmen may 
be required, or there is need for addi- 
tional traffic lights. 



INVITING DISASTER 

The motorist who insists on crashing 
through blind intersections at a break- 
neck pace, driving against the lights, or 
merely hesitating for a moment at the 
Stop signs, is inviting disaster and quite 
possibly death, warns the National Auto- 
mobile Club. You just can't be too care- 
ful at the corners.

SACRAMENTO SCRAMBLE 



Old time traffic policemen still shud- 
der and start at the goings on along K 
Street in Sacramento these days, even 
though tliey have been watching the 
somewhat weird doings for more than 
three montlis. 

And you can't blame an officer who has 
spent years to tell pedestrians to keep 
to the crosswalks, etc., for almost jump- 
ing out of his size elevens when you see 
what happens : 



efficient plans found \et for getting 
walkers and motorists alike through 
bus\' intersections at top speed and with 
a minimum of accidents. 

It is the Scramble plan for regulating 
intersection traffic, and after months of 
trial, it has been pronounced a great 
success by city officials, many of whom 
had lots of doubts when the idea first 
came up. 



lights flash green in all directions. Walk- 
ers can take their pick of which way they 
want to cross. 

When the change comes, all pedes- 
trian lights turn red. The drivers, of 
course, can't scramble like the walkers, 
and must take their turns at the green 
light. 

But the motorists, too, get a big break: 
They can turn off K Street speedily, 
because there are no pedestrians in the 




SCRAMBLI. TRAFFIC— WHEN THE PEDESTRIAN SIGNALS TLKN GREEN— AN V 1 HING GUES. 



\Vhen the lights flash green for pe- 
destrians they gyrate like women in a 
bargain basement. They dash diagonally 
across the middle of the intersection, 
and scurry every which way, ignoring 
all of the old rules. 

Great Success 

It looks like pandemonium, but in- 
stead, is one of the most modern, and 



In fact, it has proved so successful that 
practically all of the busier intersec- 
tions along K Street, the main shopping 
center in Sacramento, are to be con- 
verted to the Scramble system. 

How It Works 

This is how it works: 
At interval lights for all auto traffic 
turn red and the pedestrian "walk" 



crosswalks to get in the way of ma- 
chines. Any motorist, who has waited in 
line for long periods to make a simple 
right turn at a busy intersection knows 
how important this is. Under the old 
system the pedestrian has the right of 
way on the green light and woe to the 
motorist who tries to edge ahead of him.

PISTOL POINTING 



The end of the 1952 season came to a 
brilliant close on Sunday, November 16, 
1952, with one of the largest crowds we 
have had in a long time — something like 
135 shooters which might not seem as tho 
it were a lot of pistoleers to the average 
person but when you compare 135 just as 
an every month match with around 80 at 
an eastern championship match it really 
is something of a crowd. One hundred 
and thirty-five shooters is just about as 
nice a crowd to handle at the Police 
Range as one could want and it also 
makes for an early getaway for the gents 
who have to skedaddle home to take ma 
and the kids out for the afternoon — all 
of which the gang likes. 

The weather was ideal for the day's 
outing and when the gun smoke had 
blown out over the lake there stood Ser- 
geant Karl Schaugaard, of the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department, on top of the 
heap with the high aggregate medal pin- 
ned on his manly chest. 

We do not wish to bother you with 
the scores of the day's shooting but in- 
stead will give you the dope on the yearh 
aggregate scores and the winners of each 
division for the 1952 championships. It 
is based on the highest three scores of the 
five matches. The yearly winner in tht- 
open class was Ted Elton of the U. E. 
Navy (with a total of 3166 points), who 
is at this writing somewhere on the high 
seas as he was assigned to a ship a couple 
of months ago and was unable to shoot in 
Sunday's match so was not present to re- 
ceive the silver lazy Susan as the first 
prize. In second place was Karl Schau- 
gaard just one point behind Ted and both 
with an average of 1055. 

The scores at the end of this article are 
for the yearly aggregate matches while 
the context of the article is from the 
matches of Sunday. 

Some Never Learn 
Some of the shooters will never learn 
that it's dynamite to pony up a buck and 
challenge a target after it has been re- 
checked. Mort Kresteller, the peninsula 
auto dealer, learned via the buck route. 
Looking thru his scope he claimed his 
score should have been 8 points higher 
than as shown. Up comes the target. 
Away goes the buck. A sad and sorrier 
Mort as his scope failed to see that the 
fat "8" right on the line and just out of 
scope range. Our advice to Mort was to 



Byi J. Ross DUNNIGAN 

have Santa bring him a new scope that 
shows the whole target and not only the 
black. 

Had a chat with Captain Dick Gadd, 
U. S. Army, who has just returned from 
a tour of duty in Japan. AVhile in Japan 
he teamed up with Major Bill Hancock 
who 5'ou all know as one of our top shoot- 
ers — in fact he was on the Olympic Team 
again this year. Dick tells us that Bill is 
in good shape and still making the boys 
sit up and take notice of his scores. 




Ted Ei.ton 

Double Action 

All "Pedro" Burrel, ace Immigrant 
Agent, was bug eyed with wonderment 
and amazement when he looked over the 
guys on the line and spotted Bill Madden 
of Benicia, shooting his timed and rapid 
fire string double action. Al was of the 
opinion that Buffalo Bill and Hopalong 
Cassidy were the only double action 
shooters who were able to hit anything 
they shot at. We might add as an after 
thought that Bill only shot the one match 
in the grand western wild west style and 
in the other matches went back to his sin- 
gle action method and with much better 
res\ilts, too! 

Then we have the case of Bob Hill 
who is still wondering who put that fifth 
shot on his target but when Bob was 
shooting one of those Spanish "Star" 
guns and in all probability didn't know 
when to stop jamming shells into it as 



it's a tricky gun to use. Or maybe the 
gun, being Spanish, wasn't used to our 
ways of shooting and just took an extra 
shot for luck. Another gent who was 
quite disturbed along these lines was "M. 
D." McVey, of the Olympic Club who 
found an extra shot on his target. How- 
ever, Mac wasn't disturbed about it as 
it's old stuff to him so he just took his 
time in the alibi run and gained a couple 
of more points thereby. 

San Jose Matches 

The San Jose Pistol Club had thirty 
shooters at their November 5th match 
which was very gratifying to them as it 
shows the shooting gents must like the 
matches. The winner this month was 
Jay Dickerson of the San Jose Pistol 
Club. An extra medal was given in the 
marksman class due to the increased 
attendance. 

Bob Chow, the shooting oriental, was 
just released, for the second time from a 
25-month hitch in the navy and is gonna 
be around from now on to make the Mas- 
ter shooters hew to the line. Bob started 
off with a poor score in the first match 
but from then on was in the medal class 
in every other match either in first or sec- 
ond place. Look out for Bob "O'Chow" 
as he is Irishly called. 

Dick Thomas, owner of the Public 
Target Range and captain of the Public 
Target Range team is quite proud of his 
boys as they won Sunday's "B" Class 
team match and also the championship of 
the Class "B" teams. 

Roseburg at Helm 

The Coast Card League, Inc., an- 
nounced that the officers for the coming 
season will be with Evar Roseberg at 
the helm with Art Gibson as vice-chair- 
man. AVe understand Jack Valerga is also 
on the board of directors bench and in 
due time will be back again with us 
pistol shooting. 

And of all the people whom we didn't 
expect to see was Paul Wormser of the 
S&W canned goods outfit. Paul hasn't 
been shooting for a long spell and de- 
cided to come out once more and give the 
guns another tryout. 

Bill Koehlner is very mad at the gent 
standing alongside of him for having shot 
five shots on his target. The reason Bill 
is so mad is because the five shots by the 
culprit were better than his own shots 
and he couldn't figure out a way to keep 
them.

Midnight Manhunt 



The first shots were fired at 1 :10 a.m. 
on the morning of November 7, 1952. 
Five bullets spraying from the flaming 
muzzle of a light caliber hand gun, one 
of them finding a fleshy target a feu- 
feet away . . . and for the second time 
in less than two months the blue uniform 
of a San Francisco officer was stained 
dark crimson by the blood that oozed 
from a gunshot wound received in the 
line of duty. 




Chief English 

Officer George Carrozi sat down ab- 
ruptly, feeling, for the moment, more like 
a man who had ben punched in the 
stomach than one who had been shot. 
Then he emptied his thirty-eight at the 
shadowy figures that dashed down the 
gloom of Girard Street toward safety. 
The exchange of gunfire touched off one 
of the largest manhunts in the recent his- 
tory of the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment. But the story did not start with 
George Carrozi. In fact it did not even 
begin on the San Francisco side of the 
Bay. 

It was Tuesday, November 4th, 1952. 
Election Day. No one had their minds 
on much of anything except the picking 
of a chief executive for the L^nited States 
and representatives to Congress and other 
elective officers. 

Of course there were exceptions. Peo- 
ple stood by deathbeds as they do on every 
day of the year and cared little about the 
outcome at the polls. Others smashed 
up their cars and were carted off to hos- 
pitals . A few thousand bartenders voted, 
then wandered around aimlessly, asking 



each other why their days off always had 
to come when nothing was doing. 

And in the enlisted barracks at Ham- 
ilton Air Force Base a pair of airmen 
hatched a plan to finance a night's out- 
ing. The plan included firearms and a 
Novato druggist. The first job was ap- 
parently well planned and cased. 

Just at the closing hour the airmen 
approached the Marin County pharma- 
cist with drawn guns and cold, threaten- 
ing voices. 

"This is a stickup. Do what you are 
told and you won't get hurt." 

The druggist stared at the menacing 
little weapons, moved his gaze to the 
faces of the men who held them, and 
complied. A few moments later he found 
himself riding wildly through the Marin 
County hills in his own car. And shortly 
thereafter he was relieved of $130 and 
his wrist watch. 

A few hours passed. The enlisted air- 
men made their way across the Golden 
Gate Bridge and into San Francisco. 
They spent a good chunk of the $130 and 
started looking for a source of added re\- 
enue. Seamen Alfus D. Cowley of 445 
Lakeview Avenue appeared to be a good 
prospect. The two young men forced 
their way into his car, poked guns in his 
back and forced him to drive them to a 
deserted area. There they emptied his 
pockets and found themselves richer by 
the staggering sum of three dollars. 

Three days passed and the duo re- 
mained inactive. Then, early Friday eve- 
ning they headed from the air force base 
toward San Francisco. At nine o'clock 
they felt the need for funds. At nine 
forty-five P. M. they watched Vincent 
Ortez of 2800 San Bruno Avenue mo\- 
ing through the nightly routine of clos- 
ing his service station. Seconds later they 
invaded the station and produced their 
guns. 

"Get into your car," one of them or- 
dered. "Take the money bag with you." 

Ortiz complied and looked back for 
instructions as the pair climbed in be- 
hind him. 

"Drive," one of the gunmen ordered. 

Ortiz started the engine, slid the car 
into gear and rolled it out of the service 
station. ^Vhen he had gone about six 
blocks he was ordered to pull up at the 
curb. 

"All right, give us the money and get 
out," one of the airmen directed. "Don't 
call for the cops or we'll come back and 
get you." 

Ortiz had barely reached the sidewalk 
when the car roared away into the dark- 



ness. He stood silently in the gloom 
until the twin tail lights of his car ap- 
peared to merge into one. It did not take 
long. Then he headed for a telephone. 
Minutes later every patrol car in the city 
had a description of the bandits and the 
victim's car. 

Hours passed. For a while it appeared 
that the bandits, who had escaped with 
$150 in addition to the car, had made 
their escape good. The vehicle was be- 
coming just another number on the hot 
car file. A fresh number, however. And 
the holdup was another case for the rob- 
bery detail. 

Shorth' after one A.M., George Car- 
rozzi, a beat man with three \ears' expe- 
rience on the force was tra\elling alone 
through the shadows of Girard Street. 
Like most officers Carrozzi watched li- 
cense plates as a matter of course. He 
did a double take when the holdup car 
passed. There was no doublt in his mind 
that it uas the right car or that it con- 
tained the right men. 1 he license number 
and 'the description of the bandits had 
been broadcast regularly during the past 
three hours. 






Inspector Frank Ahern 

Carrozzi did not have a radio handy. 
The nearest call box was some distance 
away and any^vay a call to communica- 
tions would probably let the holdup man 
escape. But he did have his own car. His 
next movements were almost the result 
of reflex action.

Personal Identification In Early America 



During those years directly preceding 
the over-trustful use of anthropometry 
in American law enforcement, only 
crude and unsystematic attempts were 
made to establish and record personal 
identity. It is little wonder that Bertil- 
lon's offering was welcomed enthusiasti- 
cally. Most of the larger centers of 
civilization saw crime conditions that 
were frankly appalling, and dire need 
existed for both punitive and determin- 
ative recourses. Popular resorts, com- 
mon to nearly all countries, including 
Colonial America, embraced tattooing, 
branding, and even more sanguinary 
mutilation. These, and especially brand- 
ing, were then adjudged to serve the 
double purpose of identification and pun- 
ishment. Brand marks were used by law 
in Plymouth as early as 1658, the prac- 
tice continuing until well into the 19th 
century. Throughout this period, cur- 
rent customs also included flogging, 
dragging through the streets by oxen, the 
pillory, the severing of one or both ears, 
together with more vital, if less conspicu- 
ous, disfigurement. In branding, the fa- 
vorite anatomical areas were the fore- 
head, cheeks, breast, forearm and hands. 

Little Moderation 

The type of ofifense was often indi- 
cated by its initial leter, such as "M" 
for murder, and "T" for theft; fre- 
quently these were burned into the ball 
of the defendant's thumb. History at- 
tests that, on exceptional occasions, mod- 
eration tempered the severe Colonial en- 
forcement program, when now and then 
the gesture of branding was symbolic 
only, and the offender was lightly touch- 
ed with a cold iron. Furthermore, it is 
recorded that a prisoner might also, in 
rare circumstances, bribe the official to 
burn a trice less deeply than was cus- 
tomary when applying the heated metal. 
But from all indications it would appear 
that these extenuations were far from 
common. 

It is noteworthy that many of the 
more radical devices of marking and 
maiming, as practiced in early America, 
are not to be found in English law 
proper, and very probably were the in- 
vention of uncompromising Puritans and 
Quakers, whose newly-acquired religious 
freedom may have somewhat overstepped 
the boundaries of tolerance. In this con- 
nection, it should be noted that branding 
and other equally barbarous inflictions 
were rigidly enforced under sanction 
of the now benignly-esteemed William

Puritan Justice 
But even stern Puritan "justice" 
could be diverted from its bitter course 
by the touch of Fate, through unforeseen 
contingency, and those decades immedi- 
ately preceding the "Days of '76" saw 
daunting times in New America. French 
and English interests were in hostile con- 
test for the prized Ohio Valley, and hot 
friction arose between the Colonists who 
severally knew these countries as their 
home lands. General dissention was 
manifested in a rising resentment against 
the injustices of British rule, national 
crisis becoming acute with the historic 
"Stamp Ace" of 1765. A scant five years 
later witnessed the "Boston Massacre," 
followed by the memorable "Tea Party" 
in 1773, when the seething flames of 
revolution burst forth in earnest, sun- 
dering the already-weakened bonds that 
linked Great Britain with her resentful 
offspring. 

No Time For Identification 

A zealous citizenr\', with previous 
civic interests divided between the burn- 



ing of witches and the "civilizing" of 
Indians (who were the only true "Amer- 
icans"), found their tiny ant hill trod 
by Destiny, and accordingly, scurried in 
apprehension, forgetful the while of their 
less-pertinent enterprises. Thus, the 
science of identification lapsed in the 
New World. After the Revolution, the 
period up to 1849 brought many mo- 
mentous events that left little time for 
considering such trivialties as "personal 
identification." 

But a directive hand had once more 
touched Time's winding scroll, and those 
years following the discovery of gold in 
California found that state dubiously 
populous with motley Argonauts. Un- 
der the fleeting aegis of newly gained 
riches, hitherto honest men became flag- 
rant violators of human harmony. Nor 
was there any dearth of professional evil- 
doers, who were lured by Fortune's 
flickering flambeau from every quarter 
of the globe. The historic and western 
portal of San Francisco sheltered an am- 
biguously variegated assemblage; mur- 
derous gamblers from IVIexico, Chinese 
highbinder tong men, and exconvicts 
from Australian penal colonies. These 
latter were especially dangerous and 
troublesome, being both "jail clever" and 
vicious, and were known by a current 
sobriquet as "Sydney Ducks." 

Acute Condition 

Enforcement officials and all peace 
officers were confronted with an acute 
condition ; once again, emergency arose 
to recall the importance of personal 
identification to the conscience of a gen- 
eral public that heeded with the re- 
actions of a fire singed though thrice 
warned child. 

Together with the renowned Al- 
phonse Bertillon, France also gave the 
world a no less important, though per- 
haps more humble contributor to the 
identification field in the French scient- 
ist, M. Daguerre, who, in 1839, pub- 
lished the description of a method of 
photographic reproduction, developed by 
himself, which still bears his name — the 
daguerreotype. The process employed a 
plate of metallic silver treated with 
iodine fumes which converted its surface 
into a thin coating of silver iodide. After 
the image had been impressed by the ex- 
posure, which was necessarily a long 
one, the plate was removed to a dark 
room, and treated with vapor of metallic 
mercury, which formed a graduated de- 
posit upon the recorded image, thus cre- 
ating a "positive" likeness. Although 



Dec. 1952 - Jan. 1953 



POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



Page 17 



the results were practical, as still existent 
specimens attest, a marked disadvantage 
was presented in the lengthy exposures 
required, a most undesirable factor in 
criminal photography. Yet, despite these 
circumstances, the daguerreotype process 
was another link in the long and varied 
chain of evolution in identification. 

Criminals Photographed 

The adaptation of this facility to re- 
quirements in San Francisco was con- 
ceived by Capt. I. \y. Lees, of the city 
police department, who, on December 5, 

1854, began having local criminals pho- 
tographed. This custom continued for 
some years, with technical progress in 
photographic science adding accumula- 
tive merit to the method. Eventually, 
the pictures were placed in books, several 
hundred to the \olume, the photographs 
being supplemented by criminal histories 
and intimate descriptions of the indi- 
viduals. It has been authoritatively as- 
serted that this custom, originating in 
San Francisco, later spread to other 
cities and many foreign countries, in- 
cluding France, where it was eagerly in- 
ducted by Bertillon into his "synthetic" 
system. 

Throughout the succeeding years, San 
Francisco and all other American cities 
employed their various makeshifts, await- 
ing, the while, some clear sighted discov- 
erer to retrieve an instinctive endowment 
from the primordial. During the year 
1880, however, at least one ready thinker 
in San Francisco had noted the unique 
characteristics of his skin patterns, 
through ink-stained fingers casually 
pressed against a blotter. This was Mr. 
Isaiah West Tabor, a photographer 
whose place of business was first located 
in the Hibernia Bank Building at No. 8 
Montgomery Street, and whose advertis- 
ing offered the inviting advantage of an 

elevator. 

Fingerprints Ignored 

With this discovery of fingerprints, 
the dawn of understanding brightened, 
and Taber saw its radiance. Further in- 
vestigation and research disclosed an in- 
herent benison of man's early ancestors; 
and Taber voiced his enthusiasm to the 
harried authorities, advocating the use of 
fingerprinting to supply the current 
needs, and more especially to identify 
the immigrant Chinese, whose influx 
could have been much better regulated 
with the adoption of Taber's suggestions. 
But Taber's beacon of enlightenment 
was kindled in a city of the blind, and 
once again "civilized" men ignored a 
time tested boon that long since insured 
the survival of their prehistoric forbears. 

Amazing results sometimes develop 
from unassuming sources, as is well 



proven by the modest article on skin 
patterns written by Dr. Henry Faulds, 
which appeared in "Nature," on Oc- 
tober 28, 1880. It would, of course, be 
impossible to determine the number, 
much less the identity, of all who may 
have noted Dr. Faulds' contribution. 
However, its effects are recognized by 
the immediate and wide interest in a 
subject which had fallen into compara- 
tive obscurity. It is quite possible that 
Taber may have read Dr. Faulds' 
article; it is certain that Sir Francis 
Galton found it an inspiration, as he 
personally admitted. 

Thumb Print 

Shortly after the appearance of Faulds' 
technical outline, a government expedi- 
tion was engaged in a geological survev 
in New Mexico, then a frontier terri- 
tory, the executive staff including Mr. 
Gilbert Thompson, who had been an 
engineer with the Army of the Potomac. 
Perhaps Thompson was a subscriber to 
"Nature." At any rate, one of his fa- 
vored practices constitutes an important 
event in fingerprint history. 

Thompson's duties included the issu- 
ing of salary vouchers to members of the 
party ; and to insure protection from 
alteration, he habitually impressed his 
own thumb-print over the amount of the 
check. One such document, still on 
record, was made out to a worker bear- 
ing the dubiously suggestive by name of 
"Lying Bob," and read as follows: 

Mr. Jones, Sutler, will pay to Lying 
Bob seventv-five dollars.

thumb-print is stamped here 

over the figures.) 

First Modern Prints 

Even as introduced, for a precaution 
against forgery, this usage may be the 
first latter day employment of finger- 
prints in the United States, although 
their earth recorded importance had been 
long appreciated, as shown by the nu- 
merous and diversified prehistoric indica- 
tions from Nova Scotia to the Pacific 
Slope. 

Like homing intuition and the many 
other instinctive capabilities of man's 
early ancestors, the inherent skill to fol- 
low a spoor and to recognize the signifi- 
cance of skin patterns was submerged by 
civilization, but from time to time an as- 
sociation of ideas has reanimated the 
spark of intelligence, frequently with sur- 
prising results. 



The utilitarian application of finger- 
prints was suggested in 1885 by a now 
unknown supporter in Cincinnati, who 
advocated their impression on railroad 
tickets as a bar to misuse. With a density 
that passes understanding, the idea was 
summarily rejected b\- transportation offi- 
cials, on the basis that "it might annoy 
the passengers" ; this attitude suggests a 
decisively biased discrimination, in the 
face of such other rigorous and innumer- 
able discomforts as were inevitable with 
that era's train service. 

Thumb Pictures 

Additional publicity was given in 
1886, when Joseph T. James of Miami 
University, published an article entitled 
"Thumb Pictures," in which he set forth 
the pertinent fact that papillary designs 
of the friction surfaces remain constant 
through life, and differ with the skin of 
every human being. His \aluable treatise 
reads in part : 

"The Chinese make use of these facts 
in the identification of their major crim- 
inals, at least in part of the empire. We 
photograph our criminals ; they take the 
prints of their thumbs. These are col- 
lected in a file, and, if the delinquent 
should fall into the hands of the police, 
another print is taken and serves as mate- 
rial for comparison. The Chinese say 
their method is more reliable and much 
simpler than photography, since the crim- 
inal may make his face unrecognizable 
through changes in wearing his hair or 
beard, and other artificial means." 

This illustration suggests that Mr. 
James had made some investigation on 
the subject ; coming from such an author- 
itative source, his writing must have 
awakened considerable interest. 

Mark Twain Contributes 

Another fingerprint milestone was 
erected on the pathway of literature in 
1893, by Mark Twain, in his classic de- 
tective story, "Pudd'nhead Wilson." This 
lively tale was heartily acclaimed, as 
were all of the offerings from the facile 
pen of that lovable literary giant; but 
in this case, the applause was tinged with 
an undertone of skepticism regarding 
the plausibility of the chronicle's pro- 
tagonist, who, during his remarkable ac- 
tivities, rectified the confused identity of 
twins, and secured conviction in a homi- 
cide trial, on fingerprint evidence. An 
ignoble comment on popular wisdom and 
a sad paradox was this, wherein modern 
man derided the authenticity of that 
which long ago had aided indispensably 
in making his very existence possible. 

Repeatedly, fingerprints had tendered 
their time proven service to solve the 
many and perplexing problems of modern

The Killer's Cap 

(Continued from page )■) 

Mrs. Voorhies found a paper bag and 
turned toward the rack which held the 
eclairs. A change came over the youth's 
face as she did so. The cruel corners of 
his mouth curled downward in a positive 
sneer. His eyes narrowed to tiny, venom- 
ous slits and the trembling increased. For 
a moment he stood poised behind her, 
arms tense, hands deep in his overcoat 
pockets. The woman placed a pair of 
eclairs into the bag, carefully wrapping 
each one separately in oiled paper. Six 
eclairs went into the sack, then seven. 

The youth stiffened. His right hand 
emerged from the pocket of the over- 
coat, white knuckled as it curled tightly 
around a hickory stick which looked for 
all the world like a policeman's billy 
club. He raised it high above his head, 
stretching on tiptoe like a tennis player 
about to deliver a cannon ball serve. The 
woman spoke: 

"Will a dozen be enough, Charlie?" 

"Plenty." He spoke through tight, 
tense lips. "Just right." 

The woman caught the strange, snarl- 
ing undertone. She paused as she reached 
for the eighth eclair. Then the club came 
smashing down in a crushing arc. The 
woman slumped forward abruptly, then 
fell heavily across the top of another 
cookie can, hands clutched close to her 
stomach. A finger caught between her 
dress and the razor sharp edge of the can 
and was sheared of? abruptly. She 
screamed in agony, then tumbled on, to 
the floor. 

For the moment the youth stood star- 
ing at her, amazement mirrored in his 
eyes. She had received that violent blow, 
yet remained unconscious. She was lying 
on the floor now, head facing the rear of 
the store, screaming violently. 

Charlie ran to the front door, turned 
the key in the lock, found the light 
switch with practiced hands, then darted 
back to the woman. He stifled her 
screams with his hands as he dragged 
her back to the apartment in the rear, 
never noticing that his cap fell to the 
floor as he did so. He tossed the squirm- 
ing, helpless woman into a chair, then 
started to work with his club again. The 
second blow stilled her screams, but he 
hit her many times, just to make sure. 

When Mrs. Voorhies lay limp and 
silent in her chair, the youth worked 
slower and with more deliberation. First 
he found a length of rope in the rear of 
the apartment and went to work on the 
inert body. The line cut deep into her 
flesh as he tied first the arms and then 
the ankles. She fell to the floor with a 
resounding thud.

Satisfied that his victim was bound se- 
curely, the youth turned his attention to 
the store. On a high shelf at the rear of 
the store he found what he wanted. Gin- 
gerly he lifted the can from its shelf 
and brought it back to a position beside 
the woman. Next he turned his attention 
to the cash register. It was almost empty. 

Wildly he rushed through the store 
and apartment, searching for possible 
hiding places for funds. He opened 
drawers and closed them angrily, then 
turned his attention to the bed and couch 
cushions. They did not surrender a soli- 
tary dime. Mrs. Voorhies' purse was 
equally empty. He dashed to the cigar 
counter and stuffed his pockets full of 
cigars and cigarettes. Then he paused, 
staring silently at the gloomy shelves 
around him. Only the street lights illum- 
inated the scene. He realized that to 
search for funds without lights was a 
futile task. To search for them with 
lights would be fatal. Too late he real- 
ized that the flaw in his plans lay there. 
He would never find Mrs. Voorhies' 
"Heaps of money." The youth shrugged, 
then turned his attention to the task at 
hand. He had to destroy the evidence. 
And to do that he had to destroy Mrs. 
Voorhies. There was no choice in the 
matter. 

After due deliberation, Charlie re- 
turned to the still form in the living 
room, picked up the empty can he had 
found, then moved to a kerosene barrel 
at the rear of the store. He let the fluid 
flow until the can was brimming and the 
volatile fluid slopped over and puddled 
on the floor. Then he splashed the con- 
tents of the can about the store. 

One can, then another, then a third. 
Enough gasoline to start a roaring in- 
ferno. The last can he saved for the 
woman herself, dousing her clothes with 
it liberally. Then he tossed the container 
aside and ignited a match. He dropped 
it to the floor. Within a matter of sec- 
onds the place was a furnace from hades. 
Flames licked across the floor and up the 
walls and shelves. 1 hey darted toward 
the feet of the arsonist, then retreated. 
He moved toward the door, sure his 
task was completed. .As he did the flames 
reached the prostrate woman and ignited 
her clothing. 

The first scream stopped him dead in 
his tracks. He was free of the fire now. 
It was not burning in the front of the 
store, would not for a while. A second 
scream ripped through the oven hot air, 
shriller, more piercing than the fist one. 
Charlie gazed at the street, then back at 
the woman. Flames licked dangerously 
close to the doorway.

He should run. But he couldn't take 
a chance on that screaming. She was 
yelling loud enough to wake the dead. A 
phrase slipped into his mind. She was 
yelling bloody murder. That was it. 
Bloody murder. How often had he heard 
the phrase as a child. It had to stop. Half 
the town would be here any minute.. 

The youth darted back into the blaz- 
ing rear apartment. It took only a split 
second to orient himself in spite of the 
smoke and flames, to find the blazing 
body of the woman and drag her, still 
shrieking for mercy, to the bathroom. 




Charles Simpson 

For a moment he considered attempt- 
ing to put out the fire. To douse the 
Hames and try to save the woman's life. 
But he could not. As she lay, still 
screaming, on the tile floor beneath him, 
he weighed the odds. As long as she lived 
there were no odds. She would identify 
him immediately. And he would live for 
a long time behind bars. The hickory 
club came out of the overcoat pocket and 
went into action a third time. The 
screaming stopped abruptly. 

The youth turned. The delay could 
have been fatal. Already the living room 
of the apartment was a wall of flames. 
Another section of the blaze burned 
brightly in the front of the store. Char- 
lie held his hand over his mouth and 
darted through the furnace. Orange 
tongues of flame darted toward him like 
angry snakes. His feet felt baked within 
his shoes. He stumbled, staggered a little, 
then made it to the door. The fire was 
was getting closer. Any minute now 
someone would see it and turn in an 
alarm. He had to get out.

Fumbling, ilespciatf now, he searched 
for the lock. It had been so easy to find. 
Now it seemed impossible. Sweat 
streamed down his face as he groped 
with sweaty palms. Ten seconds. Thirty 
seconds. It seemed like thirt\- centuries. 
He was near collapse when his hand 
finally closed over the key. And as he 
opened the door and darted out into the 
fog-swept night he heard the screaming 
start again behind him. Charlie glanced 
up and down the street ! There was no 
one in sight. No one had heard the 
screams or seen the fire yet. She would 
just ha\e to go ahead and scream. Let 
her burn to death. He had tried to finish 
her. He pulled the door closed behind 
him and dashed off into the gloom. 'The 
important thing was to get away now. 
He could not afford to be seen near the 
store when someone turned in the fire 
alarm. 

The killer ran two blocks along 
Forty-eighth Avenue before he slowed to 
a walk. Satisfied at last that he was in 
the clear he moved more slowly, waiting 
to catch his breath. It had been easy. 
And still no fire alarm. He wondered 
when someone would see the fire. 

In the distance he could see the num- 
ber seven streetcar approaching. He 
waited for it in the safety zone. It was 
just what he needed. The streetcar 
would turn up Irving Street and run 
east, toward his home. He could get off 
a block from his house. ^Vhile he waited, 
he mopped the grime and perspiration 
from his face. A moment later the lum- 
bering steel giant slowed, its brakes 
squealed, and it came to a stop. He 
dropped the right change into a coin box 
and pushed quickly past the conductor 
to a seat in the rear. 

The lights were brilliant after the 
darkness. Bright, glaring and white. 'Too 
brilliant. He glanced at his overcoat. It 
was splashed with blood from top to 
bottom. He scrounged down in his seat 
and tried to look inconspicuous. It was 
not easy to do in that light, even if the 
car was almost empt)'. 'That was the 
trouble. There were one or two other 
people in his section. Only one or two. 
A woman had her back to him and 
seemed to be minding her own business. 
But the man, sitting sideways and read- 
ing the newspaper was different. Every 
now and then the killer was sure he 
glanced at him. Once he looked at him 
for a long time. A deep, penetrating 
stare. Trying to make some sense out 
of the blood. Charlie was sure of that. 
And he knew people remember things 
like blood. The red fluid makes an im- 
pression.

Of course the man with the newspaper 
was wearing glasses with extra heavy 
lenses. Probably he could not see very 
far. Or could he? Maybe he was a de- 
tective. Sometimes detectives wore dis- 
guises. Charlie had read about that. By 
the time the car turned off on Lincoln 
Avenue it seemed that the man was do- 
ing nothing but look at him. But how 
could he have found out so fast? 

The killer did not wait to find out. 
He dropped ofE the car and dashed across 
the broad street to Golden Gate Park. 
He had to get rid of the overcoat. Bury 
it. That was what he had to do. Bury it. 
No one would think of looking in the 
park. 

He found some soft, freshly turned 
earth and scrabbled at it with his fingers. 
Before long he had excavated a broad, 
shallow hole. He fumbled in the over- 
coat pockets to make sure they were 
empty. There was nothing there but the 
club. He left that in the pocket and 
folded the coat neatly before placing it 
in the hole. Then he reached for his cap. 
His groping fingers touched his fog 
dampened hair. 

The cap ! He remembered then. He 
had not thought about it when it drop- 
ped to the floor of the store. At the mo- 
ment he had been too busy dragging his 
victim into the rooms at the rear. Now 
it was too late. They would find the 
cap and get him. That was all they 
needed. Just one small clue. The cops 
were smart. It was enough. 

For a moment he knelt, trembling in 
the darkness. The game was up. It was 
too late to go back and get it. Much too 
late. By now a crowd would have gath- 
ered and the flames would have con- 
sumed the entire store. No fire depart- 
ment could arrive in time to put out the 
blaze Charlie had started. 

Suddenly the youth grinned. His tense 
body relaxed. The fire! Of course. He 
should have thought of that sooner. By 
now the cap was a charred cinder in a 
building full of them. There was no evi- 
dence. None at all. Not in the building, 
anyway. Only the overcoat. And it 
would be safe in the park. He pulled the 
earth over it, tamped it down, then fur- 
rowed it a little so that it would look 
like the cultivated ground around it. A 
moment later he was walking up Lincoln

was in the clear. It had been a cinch. 
He felt like whistling. In fact he would

ward.

The killer walked all the way home. 
It was nine-thirty when he got there. 
The house was dark. Charlie breathed a 
sigh of relief. He did not want to see 
his folks that night. He moved up the 
front stairs soundlessly and found his 
way to his room. It was then he noticed 
the crimson spots on his light coloreil 
trousers. 

Blood ! rhen there was other evidence. 
He had to get rid of it. Quickly he re- 
moved the slacks. Then he noticed his 
socks. They too were bloodstained. Care- 
fully he inspected his coat and shirt. The 
overcoat had protected them. Both were 
as spotless as they had been when he 
left early in the evening. He donned a 
dressing gown and descended to the 
kitchen. 

The house was dead still. Almost any- 
way. In the distance the youth could 
hear the sound of his father's muted 
snoring. That was all. There would be 
no trouble. A trash burner was attached 
to the kitchen range. It would ser\e his 
purpose well. He stufiPed the bloody 
trousers into it and followed them with 
the socks. They burned quickly when he 
touched a match to them. A couple of 
times he lifted the stove lid and prodded 
the burning cloth to make sure the job 
was complete. By the time he finished 
not a shred of evidence remained. He 
wished it had been possible to bring the 
overcoat and club home and burn them 
too. But someone would have spotted the 
blood for sure. And they were safe in 
the park. After all, what if someone did 
find them? They could not possibly con- 
nect them with the murder. Or with him 
for that matter. There were no identify- 
ing marks. 

The killer retraced his steps to his 
room and counted his loot. Three dol- 
lars. Just three dollars. He sighed. It 
was hardly the fortune he had expected 
to find. But at least it was enough to 
take his girl friend to a movie. The 
thought cheered him. After all, that was 
the whole idea. And he would get more 
money somehow-. 

He did not bother to subtract the eve- 
ning's losses. On the credit side of the 
ledger he had three dollars. On the debit 
side was one gray overcoat, one pair of 
trousers, a pair of socks, and a cap. And 
the club of course. A meticulous book- 
keeper would add the club into the 
losses. But Charlie was not a meticulous 
bookkeeper. He was satisfied with three 
dollars. 

It was hard to tell the smoke from the 
fog the next morning. Several people 
passed the little store at 1515 Forty- 
eighth Avenue before one of them real-

ized that a fire was smouldering inside. 
He called the fire department immedi- 
ately. 

It only took a few moments to extin- 
guish the slowly burning blaze. And it 
was not long after that when the batal- 
lion chief in charge called police head- 
quarters. 

"You had better send someone out to 
1515 Forty-eighth Avenue," he declared. 
"We have a fire out here which was un- 
doubtedly arson . . . and the body of a 
woman who must have been murdered 
before the fire started." 

A half hour later Inspector Allen Mc- 
Ginn of the homicide detail was on the 
scene together with Inspector Harry 
Husted and Assistant Inspector George 
Engler. The fireman led them through 
the scene, explaining his theory as he 
went. 

"The fire had to start out here in the 
living room," he declared. "You can see 
by the pattern of the flames that it was 
saturated with some volatile fluid. The 
woman's clothes must have been too. She 
was lying right there." He pointed to a 
place on the floor where the flames had 
burned through to the basement. "The 
fire is more concentrated there than any- 
where else. But for some reason the per- 
son who set the fire picked her up and 
carried her into the bathroom. And aside 
from her body, not a thing in the bath- 
room is burned. If you look at the body 
you will see that she took an awful beat- 
ing about the head. No one could have 
done that after the fire started." The 
chief paused until he found a mediimi 
sized can. "There is the thing the fluid 
was carried in. The arsonist must have 
carried in several loads to do this much 
damage. There is some kerosene up in 
the store. I figure that is what the killer 
used. The fire burned out for the most 
part last night." 

McGinn looked at the fire official in 
amazement. 

"If this much damage was done, why 
didn't someone turn in an alarm?" he 
innuired. 

The chief shrugged. "Probably be- 
cause no one saw it." 

"Then why didn't the building burn 
down ?" 

"That's where the killer made his big- 
gest mistake. The building did not burn 
down for the same reason that some 
chemicals are used to extinguish small 
blazes. In fact for the same reason water 
is used. A fire has to have air. If there 
is no air, it will smother itself. It was 
cold last night. Every window and door 
in this placed was closed when we ar- 
rived. Actually all that was left of the

fire was smoke. In just one place, the 
point where the body was originally ly- 
ing, were there any embers left. Once it 
got through to the basement it would 
have had breathing room and eventually 
the whole building would have gone. As 
it was the fire burned so quick and so hot 
that the air was devoid of 0-\ygen in a 
few minutes. And all combustion needs 
free o.xygen to exist at all. If there had 
been an open window, or if one had 
broken, the place would have gone up 
like a cracker box. Even if the arsonist 
had left the door open on his way out. 
Rut he didn't. So we have something to 
work with." 

"Not much, from the looks of things," 
McGinn remarked. He turned to Hus- 
ted and Engler. "All right, boys. Let's 
get at it." 

It took only a few moments' investi- 
gation to convince the oiScers they were 
investigating the most cruel crime they 
were ever likely to see in their police 
careers. The club marks on Mrs. Voor- 
hies' singed face stood out clearly. The 
bonds which held her arms and legs had 
not been completely destroyed by flames. 
The robbery motive became apparent im- 
mediately. 

"We had better check for fingerprints 
on that cash register, and any other place 
which seems to have been ransacked," 
McGinn suggested. "Did either of you 
find anything?" 

Engler produced a grey cap. "Just 
this," he said. 

McGinn examined it. "No identifying 
marks. But those ventilation holes are 
different than any I've ever seen. It's 
not what you would call an ordinary 
cap. It might help." 

The cap was the only clue of any im- 
portance the oiScers found on the prem- 
ises. When pictures had been taken and 
the body removed the three men started 
a house to house search for witnesses in 
the neighborhood. 

"Not that I have any hopes of finding 
any," McGinn remarked. "If an\'one 
had seen anything, the fire would have 
been reported." 

AVhile the detectives worked, the story 
of the vicious crime caught the imagi- 
nation of the San Francisco press. 
Screaming headlines told of the Torch 
Murder and top feature writers de- 
scribed each lurid detail of the crime. B\ 
nightfall an aroused public was demand- 
ing that the killer be apprehended. 

"^Vhat have you got?" Chief of Police 
William J. Quinn demanded. 

"One grey golf cap. That's all," Mc- 
Ginn replied. "And that doesn't mean a 
thing."

"Why not?" 

"We traced it to a haberdashery. It's 
a peculiar make. But it was one of a lot 
of twelve sold last April. That's almost 
a year. All of them sold for cash. You 
can't expect a cleric to remember his cus- 
tomers that far back." 

"That's easy to understand. How 
about the neighbors?" 

McGinn shook his head regretfully. 
There's nothing to be found but a mo- 
tive. She was supposed to keep a wad of 
money around the place. About $2,500. 
Whoever did it had to know about that. 
And they had to know her to get in. But 
she knew a awful lot of people. It's 
tough." 

"I'll give you more men," Quinn 
promised. "Meanwhile keep plugging. 
The man who did this is utterly ruthless. 
People want him caught, and so do I. 
Good luck." 

Inspectors Percy Kennealy and George 
"Paddy" Tafer of the Crime Prevention 
Bureau joined McGinn's men in their 
search. They worked tirelessly. On the 
morning of the eighteenth they picked 
up a blood splattered man on the Em- 
barcadero who had been turned in on 
a tip by another man. Within minutes 
he had cleared himself. He wound up in 
the city prison on a drunk charge. By 
nightfall the case had bogged down com- 
pletely. And on the next morning a San 
Francisco newspaper ran a picture of the 
grey golf cap. 

Inspector Louis DeMattei just had 
time to glance at the morning paper be- 
fore going to court on February nine- 
teenth. He settled back to enjoy himself 
briefly during the lull. The inspector 
did not relax long. He stared unbeliev- 
ingly at the picture, then passed the pa- 
per to his partner, Jack P. O'Connell. 

"Does that look familiar?" he in- 
quired. 

"I'll say it does," the detective replied. 
"That Simpson kid. His hearing's this 
morning." 

"Let's go see McGinn," DeMattei 
suggested. 

O'Connell was on his feet before he 
had finished talking. They left the Auto 
Detail together and made their way to 
homicide. 

"Can I see that cap?" DeMattei in- 
quired. 

"\ ou sure can if it will do any good," 
the inspetcor replied. He produced an 
envelope from his drawer and withdrew 
the cap. "1 here it is. Ever seen one like 
it?" 

"Once. Just once," DeMattei replied. 
He took the cap from McGinn and ex- 
amined the sweat band carefully. "It's

the cap all right," he muttered. "It has 
to be. I remember the sweat stains." 

"What cap?" McGinn almost shout- 
ed. 

"About a month ago we picked up this 
Ivid for auto theft. I noticed the ventila- 
tion holes and asked the kid to see the 
cap. \Vhen I looked inside it I noticed 
the sweat pattern. The kid is out on bail 
now." 

"Where can we get him?" 

"Don't get a sweat up," DeMattei 
replied. "He's coming to us. In fact he's 
due in court this morning. And Jack 
and I are due there right now." 

"I'll send someone with you." 

"Okay. But let's not get excited. We 
want to spring this on him as a surprise. 
Let's go through the hearing and give 
his atterney a chance to go home. \Ve'll 
need a confession. And we won't get 
one with a lawyer around. A cap isn't 
very strong evidence." 

McGinn turned to AVafer. "You go, 
Paddy," he instructed. "You dont belong 
to the detail. No one will suspect you." 

Wafer placed his hat on his head and 
followed DeMattei and O'Connell to 
the third floor courtroom. 

Charles Simpson was dressed flawless- 
ly in a blue suit for his court appear- 
ance. He was there only a few moments, 
while his attorney asked for a delay. 
^Vhen the motion was granted, the law- 
yer and the youth left the courtroom. 
DeMattei, O'Connell and Wafer 
watched poker faced. They were a few 
feet away from the youth when he said 
goodbye to the attorney. When the bar- 
rister was out of sight they approached 
the boy. 

"How do you feel this morning, 
Charlie?" DeMattei inquired. 

"Fine. Just fine." 

"^'ou shouldn't," O'Connell told him. 

"Fhe youth frowned, "^^^ly not." 

"Because you are under arrest for the 
murder of Albina Voorhies," \Vafer 
announced bluntly. 

"Say, what is this?" the boy demand- 
ed. "You can't get away with a thing 
like this." 

"Oh yes, we can," DeMattei told him. 
"Come on up to the homicide detail and 
we'll tell you how." 

In the presence of Wafer, McGinn, 
O'Connell, Engler, and Chief Quinn, 
Simpson was confronted with the cap. 

"You can't get around this cap," De- 
Mattei told him. "It was found on the 
scene. And I remember the sweat marks 
on the band. You're stuck."

The element of surprise worked. Simp- 
son looked startled, then frightened. 

"All right, I'll talk," he announced. 
"I killed her. I guess it looks pretty bad 
tor me. 

Later in the day Simpson confessed 
the crime in detail, going over each step 
with the officers. He declared he had a 
business connection with the woman and 
that through that he had heard of the 
rumored "heap of money." 

"I knew I would have to kill her for 
the money," he declared. "She knew me. 
I couldn't get it any other way." 

"How much did you get?" McGinn 
inquired. 

"Three dollars." 

On April 20, 1931, Charles Simpson 
entered a plea of guilty to the murder 
of the elderly woman. He was sentenced 
to be executed for his crime in San 
Quentin Prison. He died on the prison 
gallows on July 10 of the same year.

San Joaquin County with better law en- 
forcement. 

Sheriff Sousa's next step was to see 
that all deputies were dressed in service- 
able, neat uniforms. Then he turned his 
attention to their ability and education. 
Today every man must take refresher 
training courses for two weeks every 
year. These courses include instruction 
in all phases of peace officer fundamentals 
and a rundown of new laws. In addition 
to the extra schooling, every man must 
take periodic examinations which estab- 
lish his standing with the force. And 
the examinations do not stop with the 
ordinary deputy. Every officer up to and 
including the rank of captain must take 
the tests. 

As a step toward forwarding with his 
modernization program. Sheriff Sousa 
sent his old pupil, Michael Canlis, back 
to school. Canlis' new alma mater was 
no prep school, however. He attended 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation Na- 
tional Police Academy in Washington 
and returned well versed in up-to-date 
methods which would improve the San 
Joaquin County Sheriff's office. 

Canlis first turned his attention to the 
Bureau of Identification which had long 
been a matter of pride to the Stockton 
law enforcement agency. The bureau is 
one of the oldest in the state. Its records 
include the first police identification

photographs ever taken, including the 
historical prints turned out by Captain 
I. \V. Lees of the San Francisco Police 
Department in 1855. The records have 
been kept with painstaking care ever 
since. Hut this was not enough for Un- 
dersherif? Canlis. Under Sheriff Sousa's 
direction he installed a modern filing 
system, purchased new equipment and 
placed carefully trained men in charge of 
it. Today, under the direction of Lieu- 
tenant P. A I. Morton the bureau is rank- 
ed with the best in California and bow 
to none in the nation. 

Politics have played no part in the way 
Sousa runs his office. The only yardstick 
by which a modern San Joaquin County 
Deputy, or office hand, is measured is by 
his or her honesty or efficiency. If a man 
has what it takes, he gets somewhere. 

To supplement his none too large de- 
partment, Sheriff Sousa has organized 
and maintained a force of reserve depu- 
ties which is today the office's pride and 
joy. There is no swearing in of informal 
deputies in San Joaquin County. In case 
of emergency. Sheriff Sousa can call on 
an organized reserve of trained, high 
quality men who will supplement his 
own organization with equal knowledge 
and ability. Selection is the Sheriff's 
main problem with the reserve. There 
are plenty of volunteers, but few men 




Sheriff Carlos Sousa 

who are willing to meet the rigid require- 
ments set up by Sousa. A reserve deputy 
on Sheriff Sousa's force must take the 
same indoctrination course as a regular 
employee, he is subjected to the same 
rigid discipline and must serve on active

duty for a limited number of hours each 
month. Even then only a few of the vol- 
unteers are chosen. Only the best men 
are picked. Sherifif Sousa's reserve force 
includes everything from professional 
men to laborers, but each one must meet 
the same high standards. 




Undersheriff Michael Canlis 

A sore point in the office from the 
Sheriff's point of view is the county jail. 
As recently as last November a bond 
issue to provide funds for a new one was 
turned down by the voters. 

"Don't get me wrong," Sheriff Sousa 
remarked. "Our jail is a good one. And 
believe it or not it is always spotlessly 
clean. But it was built more than half a 
century ago for a maximum of about 
seventy prisoners. At times now we have 
hundreds in it. The problem is a serious 
one. But jails are the hardest thing in 
the world to get money for." 

Early in his career as Sheriff, Sousa 
enlarged and improved the prison system. 
He acquired 360 acres for the prison 
honor farm and completed the erection 
of a modern kitchen and dining room 
which can accommodate 400 men. To 
these he added dormitory buildings with 
modern facilities where men serving time 
for misdemeanors are provided the best 
in housing and recreation. The farm 
includes a dairy building, a processing 
plant which takes care of the vast vege- 
table crops raised there, clean and sani- 
tary pens and corrals for more than 100 
swine and over 20 head of dairy cattle, 
a smokehouse for curing pork for other

county institutions and a machine shop. 
There are no fences around the farm 
and escapes are few. 

Sheriff Sousa's record for honesty and 
integrity has been outstanding among 
peace officers throughout the country. In 
San Joaquin County no one has ever had 
the temerity to hint that he was not 
tioing the best job possible. Even his 
political foes can only say, "\'es, he is 
doing fine. I would just do it different." 
A weak argument at election time at 
best. 

He kept his promise to the late Sheriff 
Martin Ansbro when he told him he 
would run a clean campaign. When Ans- 
bro died and he stepped into his shoes he 
filled those of a fine man. And he con- 
tinued to make his word good. He kept 
the office both clean and progressive. 
The results have been outstanding. To- 
date he is the administrator of an office 
which contain as fine a group of peace 
officers as there is in the state. 

The names of Canlis, Captain Denzel 
Troute, and Lieutenants Morton, Joseph 
Hagengruber, Andy Tickvitza, William 
Kates, Elmer Briscoe, Loren Brown, 
Allison Johnson, Frank Esau, Ivan Com- 
mons and all others are known far be- 
yond the limits of San Joaquin County. 
The old mentor has coached himself a 
good team. Why did he switch from 
recreation work to a peace officer's job? 

"\Vell, I'll tell you," Sousa explains. 
"1 always wanted to be Sheriff. It's a 
good job. I like it." 

The old coach acts like he likes it. 



CLEAN TERMINALS 

The pantry and medicine cabinet at 
home still contain all the ingredients 
necessary to clean and keep clean the 
battery terminals, according to the Na- 
tional Automobile Club. Baking soda, 
poured over the posts and then moist- 
ened, will remove any corrosive deposit 
and a slight coating of vaseline after- 
ward will keep them clean. 



HENS IN NEW MEXICO 

There are approximately one million 
laying hens in New Mexico., according 
to the National Automobile Club. Each 
hen lays approximately two himdred 
eggs per year.

Sacramento Scramble 

(Continued from page 13) 

Everybody Waited 

Along K Street, as at busy cross streets 
the country over, this was a real head- 
ache for years. Ten or more cars would 
pile up during a single change of a sig- 
nal, but one motorist making a right 
turn was lucky if he could make the 
turn on the green light ; and everybody 
behind him waited. 

A small group of Sacramentans, 
headed by Bert E. Geisreiter, council- 
man and former mayor, pioneered the 
Scramble system in Sacramento. Even 
though it had been tried out success- 
fully in some other cities, including 
Denver, Colo., Boston, and Vancouver, 
B.C., they were hard put at first to find 
people willing to put out their necks to 
back a trial run. 

In mid September, however, they put 
the idea across and it was tried on K 
at Eighth and Ninth Streets. Everybody 
waited apprehensively, some with grim 
thoughts about how busy the ambulances 
were going to be when people got con- 
fused. 




Chief James Hicks 

System Approved 

And, although, some pedestrians got 
a bit mixed up the first day or so, even 
the most ardent backers of the idea were 
surprised at how well it worked. Minor 
bugs had to be worked out but from 
the start it was a whizbang success. 

In fact, two days after the system 
was started, the City Council went on 
record approving it, and instructed City 
Manager Bartley W. Cavanaugh to 
check up on the feasibility of extending 
it. Now plans are in the works to Scram-

hie the Y Street intersections at Seventh, 
Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Streets — 
the busiest in the city — and those on L 
at Eleventh and Twelfth. 

The police department has a big job to 
do in connection with the system. Here 
is what City Traffic Engineer D. Jack- 
son Faustman, advises: 




Traffic Captain Bennett 

Obedience Needed 

"Strict obedience on the part of both 
pedestrians and vehicle operators is ne- 
cessary if the full advantage of the sys- 
tem is to be obtained. If pedestrians 
consistently violate the signal indica- 
tions, the additional delay caused to vehi- 
cles on the succeeding phase more than 
cancels out any advantage which can be 
gained by the timing system." 

He added, however, that both drivers 
and walkers are cooperating well. 

Of course, mistakes can't be helped. 
One Sacramento police officer can testi- 
fy to that, and probably will, to the end 
of his days. The first time he went 
through a Scramble system on his tri- 
cycle something went wrong. Before he 
got through the pedestrians got going 
and he was stuck in the middle of about 
100 of them and couldn't move a foot. 

And it was just his luck that a pho- 
tographer came along and got an excel- 
lent shot of him sitting there dejectedly, 
wondering what to do about it all. 



PATCH THE DRIVEWAY 

Don't allow a driveway surface that 
needs patching to go unattended. A patch 
in time reduces the cost of driveway 
maintenance, according to the National 
Automobile Club.

THE OAKLAND MATCH 
FOR NOVEMBER 

Pistol shooting develops sterling char- 
acters and good fellowship as we can 
witness by the following. In the C.F. 
short course, Bill Thomas was nosed 
out of the second place e.\pert medal by 
Hal Fellows via the Creedmore route 
which made Bill rather indignant as he 
always wanted a silver medal. Bill's 
good fellowship remark left the boys in 
rather a funk as to the exact meaning of 
the quote (and we quote). "Gee, but I 
sure would of liked to have beaten Hal 
outta that medal as he's a friend of 
mine." (And here we unquote.) 

Was interested in our good friend 
United States Marine Klipfel while he 
was shooting the .22 Camp Perry match 
and the resultant case of jitters that 
affects one when the scores are high. 
Klip was doing fine in the slow fire with 
a nice possible and repeated the possible 
in the timed fire string but "ole man 
jitters" took over in the rapid fire string 
and poor ole Klip wound up with a 99 
and a cracker-jack score of 299 to boot. 
Too bad, as we were looking for a rec- 
ord. 

Pistol Minded 

The armed services are sure pistol 
minded these days and each match brings 
out a new army, navy or marine team 
and Sunday was no exxeption when the 
U.S. S.Boxer sent two teams over to the

range for their first try at a team match. 
However, they didn't officially enter in 
any of the team matches but were just 
trying out to see how the boys behaved 
under fire. Next month nia\be we'll see 
wot happens — officially. 




Ed Preston 

During the matches some kid came 
running up the hill from the zoo ex- 
claiming that a lion had busted loose and 
was terrorizing the people. Immediately 
the brave pistoleers grabbed all sorts of 
shooting irons and started off for the 
lion hunt, mostly all with fear and trepi- 
dation. Of course, it was just a young- 
ter's prank but what we are trying to 
bring out is that after the excitement 
was ov'er Ralph Johnson made the sage 
remark that not a one of the brave 
hunters had any bullets in their guns! 
Last Laugh 

For some time now Frank Biven has 
been shooting an old Colt single action 
gun in the matches and Frank Lipoid 
has ben giving him a rather rufi time of 
it. Up comes the C. F. Camp Perry 
match and Frank B takes the first place 
medal with a 2')2 in the marksman class 
which, by the bye, was two points lower 
than the master class high. Frank L. 
now has a red face, Frank B. is still 
shooting the old klunk and lafifing at 
Frank L. with each drop of the hammer. 

The annual banquet of the Western 
Revolver Association will be held in 
January of next year at which time the 
winners of the yearly aggregate scores 
will be announced. The yearly attend- 
ance prizes will be in the form of small 
loving cups of gold for those attending 
for two or more years and silver for 
those of one year. 

There were 180 shooters present Sun- 
day and sure had a swell day for shoot-

ing. J'he No Sunshine award was not 
awarded on account the sun was shining 
— as it always does at the Oakland 
matches. The Oscars were picked up by 
Royce Tevis, Goldon McPherson and 
Jack McNamara. And next match we 
have the long sought after turkey shoot. 

Jack Watkins has not been shooting 
too long but is now trying to make up 
his mind to enter the cap 'n ball match 
as he has an old cap 'n bailer his grand- 
father used to shoot about 100 years 
ago. Our advice is that he stay with his 
three modern guns that he is having 
trouble with and let the 100 year model 
rest on its laurels. 

Len Engstrom of the Alameda Police 
Department is still trying to figure out 
where that 10th shot of his went in the 
rapid fire string of the .22 match. Len 
insists it's on the target and MUST be 
a double of one of those tens he has but 
the point is which one is it? No one can 
find it so Len goes down 10 points, 
much to his sorrow. Such is the rugged 
life of pistol shooting.

Midnight Manhunt 

(l.'iinlinuiJ Iriim pai/r /5; 

Catching the stolen car was easy. 1 he 
handits had not been suspicious of the 
pri\ate automobile which followed in 
their wake. Carrozzi pulled abreast of 
them in the 500 block of Girard Street, 
then turned in sharply. Brakes squealed, 
the bandit driver cursed and the stolen 
car came to an abrupt stop by the curb. 

The officer leaped from his car, gun 
drawn, and moved toward the fugitives. 

"All right," he ordered. "Come out 
of there with your hands up. Don't try 
any funny business." 

Carrozzi know it was a touchy situa- 
tion. One policeman with two gun happy 
bandits is alwa\s pla>ing the short end 
of the odds, even if he does have the drop 
on them for the moment. He stayed well 
clear of the car while he waited for the 
two men to unload. 




Lieutenant Martin Lee 

The man in the passenger's seat opened 
the door, then lifted his hands high in 
the air and stepped out. The driver 
mo\ed slower. He gazed at the officer 
with surly, disgusted eyes, then shuffled 
toward the sidewalk. Carrozzi watched 
him warily, knowing he could cause 
trouble. 

"Get your hands up where I can see 
them, " he ordered. 

The airman leaned low, half doubled 
over as though he was sick. 

"I'll get 'em up," he muttered. 

Still in a crouch the airman brought 
his hands into view, moving fast, striking 
with the deadly speed and precision of a 
rattlesnake. Carrozzi caught the gleam 
of the barrel of the twenty-five too late

to do anything about it. The little gun 
spoke in an angry, snapping voice, belch- 
ing as it did so. Then it was the officer's 
turn to double over as a mighty leaden 
fist, moving at better than 1900 feet a 
second, caught him just below the belt. 
Four more bullets sprayed from the air- 
man's gun before he turned and darted 
down Girard Street in the wake of his 
companion. 

Carrozzi lifted his own weapon and 
the heavy throated voice of the thirty- 
eight roared a defiant answer to the light- 
er pistol. The officer emptied his weapon 
at the fleeing figures but distance and 
darkness spoiled his aim. The bandits 
disappeared around a corner. 

Every now and then a wounded man 
behaves with courage and fortitude which 
amazes the physicians who work on him. 
Carrozzi did that night. Conscious of 
considerable pain, but having no idea of 
how badly he was hit, the officer strug- 
gled to his feet and looked around, taking 
a moment or so to get his bearings. He 
noticed the porch lights at 524 Girard 
Street had flicked on soon ofter the shoot- 
ing and headed in that direction. 






Inspector Tom Cahill 

Louis Scurini and his family had all 
been awakened immediately by the shoot- 
ing. He answered the doorbell at once 
when Carrozzi rang. 

"Come on it, Officer," he urged. 

"Have you got a telephone?" Carrozzi 
inquired. 

"Right at the head of the stairs. Can 
you make it?" 

"Sure, Carrozzi told him. "I'm all 
right." 

The big policeman moved slowly to 
the top of the stairs and found the tele- 
phone. He called Potrero station.

"This is Carrozzi," he declared. "I'm 
at 524 Girard Street. I spotted those 
two men who pulled the San Bruno Ave- 
nue holdup and ran them down. Oiie_of 
them shot me. Then they escaped on 
foot. They must still be in the area 
somewhere. Send some help. Quick. 
And send me an ambulance. I've got a 
bullet in me." 

Carrozzi turned to his host. "I've 
ne\er been shot before," he declared. "It 
doesn't feel so good." 

He pulled his tunic open and stared 
at the blood which was spreading slowly 
across his shirt and trousers. "\ ou know, 
I thought I got the bullet in my belt. It 
hit me so hard it knocked me down. But 
I got hit all right. I got hit good." 

Scurini lead his guest to a comfortable 
chair. Carrozzi continued to talk ration- 
ally and calmly. The sound of sirens in 
the distance told him that his fellow offi- 
cers were bracketing the area with blue 
uniforms. 

"I hope they get them," he declared. 
"I sure hope they get them." 

The telephone rang. It was a news- 
paperman asking what had happened. 
AVhile Scurini tried to explain Carrozzi 
lifted himself from the chair and took 
over. He outlined the incident in detail. 
Later he took another call of the same 
nature. 

The Scurini family gathered around 
the wounded officer. Carrozzi ejected a 
shell case from his service revolver and 
handed it to eight-year-old Jannette 
Scurini. 

"Here's a souvenir for you," he de- 
clared. "Now you'll have something to 
show the kids in school." 

The ambulance from Alission Emer- 
gency Hospital seemed to be dragging its 
feet. Carrozzi rose from his chair and 
went downstairs to see what was holding 
things up. Nothing was in sight. He 
climbed the stairs again, moving slower 
than ever. The pallor on his face had in- 
creased. He was turning a pale, pasty 
gray. Scurini noticed it. 

"You've gotta sit down officer. You've 
just got to." 

Carrozzi sighed wearily. "OK, I'll 
sit down." 

A few minutes later the ambulance ar- 
rived and carted the amazing six foot, 
200-pound plus officer to the surgery 
tables of the San Francisco hospital. 
Plasma was the first thing he needed. 
The big officer had lost a lot of blood.

Meanwhile, back along Bayshore 
Houlexard and Silver Avenue, the search 
for the gunmen continued and expanded. 
Every available man in the Ingleside and 
Potrero districts was rushed to the scene. 
Carloads of men arrived from the Hall 
of Justice and spread themselves through 
the gloom. Traffic men joined the chase. 

Chief of Inspectors James English ar- 
rived to direct the manhunt personally. 
Inspector Frank Ahern, square jawed, 
grim faced and angry appeared to assist. 
Lieutenant Marty Lee of the Robbery 
Detail — calm, confident and efficient — 
was summoned to direct a portion of the 
chase. 

Spot lights, probing the shadows, prod- 
ding the recessed dorways, swept down 
dark alleys. Slashlights flickered in the 
darkness. Prowl car radios growled, 
sputtered and disgorged information in 
static splattered sentences. Patrolmen on 
foot moved methodically from house to 
house and street to street, investigating 
each shadow. 

The manhunt continued. An hour 
passed and then another. Chief English, 
who had gathered his aides around him 
in Mission Emergency Hospital, ex- 
changed worried glances with his men. 
1 he area was bracketed, blocked off. But 
it was large and the quarry was small. A 
needle in a haystack. Two men. Two 
men loose in a district as large as many 
medium sized cities. 

Robbery Inspector George Heeg had 
joined the group. Tom Cahill of homi- 
cide was there. John O'Haire, also of 
homicide was present. They studied the 
incoming reports and tried to fit them 
into and intelligent patern. 

Meanwhile the patrolmen moved on. 
Methodically and slowly now, in an ever 
narrowing circle. 

Three ten A.M. Seventy-one year 
old Louis Sechini arose at his home at 
437 Goettingen Street and prepared to 
leave for work. Louis is a produce work- 
er and men who labor in the commission 
market get up early. Sechini moved 
quietly. His daughter and her husband, 
Frank DeMartini and their two children 
were still asleep. To make things easier 
he went to the basement to shine his 
shoes. He switched on the light. 

"Keep quiet or we'll kill you!" 

Sechini caught his breath. A gunman 
moved from behind the family car, pistol 
leveled at the elderly man. The second 
bandit appeared from his hiding place un- 
der the car. His gun was also drawn. 

"AVhat the hell are you doing here?" 
Sechini inquired angrily.

"Keep quiet or we'll kill \ou," the 
bandit repeated. 

"What do you want?" 

'The keys to the car. Where are 
they?" 

"I haven't got them," Sechini replied. 
"The car keys are upstairs." 

Frank DeMartini had been half awak- 
ened when his father-in-law got up. The 
sound of the older man's angry voice fil- 
tered through his semi-slumber, and he 
arose to see what had happened. The 
bandits had just asked about the keys 
when he entered. 

"\Vhat's going on here, anyway?" he 
demanded. 

Sechini whirled toward the doorway. 
"Get out of the way, Frank," he ordered. 

But DeMartini was already in the cel- 
lar. One of the bandits covered him with 
his gun. 

"Keep your hands up and keep quiet," 
he said. 

DeMartini took a step back, then 
stopped. The airmen looked at each other 
questioningly, cursed, and then retreated 
through the back door. DeAIartini raced 
toward the telephone. 

The call to communications, which 
was immediately relayed to Captain Eng- 
lish, was the first real break in the man- 
hunt. 

"I hey were just in our basement, " 
DeMartini reported. "I think I can hear 
them climbing to the roof.'' 

Captain English and his crew rolled 
with sirens screaming down Bayshore 
Boulevard. Meanwhile Potrero Station 
policemen caught fleeting glimpses of the 
two bandits who had somewhow clam- 
bered to the roof of the DeMartini house 
and scampered over a row of houses in 
the direction of the Grace Lutheran 
Church. 

Meanwhile a cocker spaniel barked in 
frantic indignation. 

Two carloads of emergency officers in- 
cluding Leo Osuna, ^Valter Kracke, Al 
Gordon, Art Hagstrom and George Eng- 
ler coiuerged on the scene. The uniform- 
ed policemen drew their net in tight. 
Frank Ahern pulled up in front of the 
church and found Reverend Byron P. 
Wallschlaeger, the pastor. 

"My little dog has been barking," the 
minister reported. "I think there may be 
someone on the roof. He's pretty excited." 

He had not finished talking when 
Osuna and Kracke made a simultaneous 
discovery. 

"Hev, there they are," the officers 
shouted. "On the roof of the church." 

Spotlights pierced the darkness illumi- 
nating the fugitives. A tiny tongue of 
flame gickered defiantly as a gunman 
opened fire on the lot of officers. The

policemen lunged for the cover of their 
cars, then returned fire. The net spread 
tight around the lofty building. Patrol- 
men focused their flashlights on the roof 
and advanced, guns drawn and ready for 
instant use. 

Osuna and Kracke moved forward, 
scaled an eight-foot wire fence and drop- 
ped into the backyard. Almost before 
they knew what was happening they rea- 
lized they had company. 

One of the bandits was squatting in 
the yard, desperately trying to bury the 
holdup money and his gun. 

Kracke leveled his thirty-eight at the 
airman. 

"Come out with your hands up or I'll 
let you have it," he ordered. 

The suspect, hands aloft, moved for- 
ward under the flashlight beam. He sur- 
rendered without further struggle. 

While Osuna and Kracke captured the 
fugitive, Frank Ahern sought a route to 
the church roof. He found it at 319 
Bacon Street. Leading Officers Engler, 
Robert Dennison and George Ferris, he 
moved through the house to the roof. 
A four-foot gap separated the policeman 
from the church roof. 

"We can jump that," Ahearn decided. 

"Easy," one of the officers agreed. 

One by one the four officers leaped 
from the residence to the church. From 
there on it was easy. The defiant bandit 
had lost his nerve. He crouched, empty 
handed, beside a cornice. His gun lay on 
the tar paper a few feet away. 

"Don't shoot, I'll give up," he said. 

"You bet you'll come," Ahern replied. 
He turned and called to the officers on 
the street. 

"Somebody send for a fire truck, will 
you," he called. "I need a ladder to get 
this fellow down with." 

The manhunt was over. Later that 
night the two bandits were identified as 
Judge Lombard and Nathan Nichols, 
both airmen stationed at Hamilton Air 
Force base. A complete confession of 
each detail of their crime spree followed. 

Every San Francisco officer who reads 
this magazine knows by now that Car- 
rozzi will recover. His constitution was 
as tough as his disposition. His fellow 
officers will be working with him during 
the months and years to come. And his 
courageous action will not soon be for- 
gotten. 

And the bandits ? They have tempo- 
rary quarters in the San Francisco 
County Jail while they await trial. Later 
on they will take up residence in rooms 
which have been reserved for them up the 
bay apiece. Right close to Hamilton Air 
Force Base in fact. But in spite of this 
it is considered highly unlikely that they 
will feel at home. Not right away.

Personal Identification 

(Conthiuiii from pacic 17 J 

society, but, despite numerous and offera- 
tory manifestations, the directors of 
American public welfare were apathetic. 
However, the Hertillon novelty was loud- 
ly acclaimed by those in power, with the 
fine unreason of witless sheep aping some 
freakish antic of their bellwether; and 
eventually, anthopometry gained foothold 
in another unsuspecting territory. 

Bertillion File Compiled 

Bertillon's book, "Signaletic Instruc- 
tions," published in English in 1896, con- 
tains the following prideful statement: 

"It (the Bertillon System) was intro- 
duced into the United States in 1887 by 
Major R. W. McClaughry (then war- 
den of the Illinois State Penitentiary at 
Joliet. and Secretary of the United States 
and Canada Warden's Association) to 
whose attention it was brought by the 
chief of that institution, the late Gallus 
Muller. Shortly afterward, it was offi- 
cially endorsed by the Warden's Associa- 
tion . . . and at the present time, there 
are in the United States nearly twenty 
prisons and reformatories and at least 
seven police departments, which are mak- 
ing use of it to some extent." 

As early as 1896, the International As- 
sociation of Chiefs of Police had set up 
a Bertillon file at Chicago, compiled from 
the records furnished by enforcement 
agencies throughout the entire country. 
Incidentally, this was the first bureau of 
identification with a national scope to be 
created in the United States. It also is 
an important circumstance that these rec- 
ords were later removed to Washington, 
D. C, to become the nucleus of the Na- 
tional Police Bureau of Identification, 
which had its birthplace in an office over 
the National Bank of AVashington, at 
7th and D Streets, N.W. Washington, 
D. C, with Eugene Van Buskirk in 
charge as superintendent. 

When fingerprinting was finally adopt- 
ad, digital records also were forwarded 
by the many police officers of the United 
States, and not by the Federal Govern- 
ment, as popular misinformation has fre- 
quently contended. 

Rogues Gallery Expands 
Some extenuation for Bertillon's readv 
acceptance in the L^nited States is found 
in the haphazard identification procedures 
current at the time. The "Rogues Gal- 
lery" instituted in San Francisco by Cap- 
tain Lees in 1854, pioneered similar 
methods, which were employed in 1875 
by Inspector Thomas Byrnes, Chief of 
Detectives in the New York City Police 
Department. Recognized as a world fig- 
ure in the enforcement field, the achieve-

nients of Byrnes in criminal photography 
surpassed those of Captain Lees, who had 
been handicapped by hick both of funds 
and cooperation. In 1886, Byrnes pub- 
lished a sizeable text entitled "Profes- 
sional Criminals in America," in which 
he described a large number of current 
offenders, and included several hundred 
photographs, a work suggesting, but far 
from comparable with that of Oloriz 
Aquilera. 

Byrnes later included descriptions of 
the Bertillon system, and published an 
enlarged and revised edition of his book 
in 1895, which, in that era of horsecars 
and gaslight, enforcement officers of 
America, and of Europe as well, found 
to be of considerable utility. But inter- 
national criminals and local lawbreakers 
also were both numerous and active, and 
more effective weapons were sorely 
needed. 

Thus Bertillon's anthropometry came 
as an emergency measure in dire extrem- 
ity ; however, it is regretable that popu- 
lar selection made such a choice with 
fingerprinting not only available, but 
also convincingly advocated by progres- 
sive intellects possessing the foresight to 
appreciate its advantage. 

Bertillon System Spreads 

Once rooted in American soil, anthro- 
pometry throve with timely blossoming 
in all important centers. The Chicago 
police department countenanced its em- 
ployment in 1888 at the insistence of 
Captain Michael P. Evans, and its was 
used in Illinois State Reformatory in 
1889 by a J. Reno, one of Evans' stu- 
dents. New York officially sanctioned 
Bertillon's method September 1, 1896, 
and was still addicted to its use in 1903, 
when Captain James H. Parke, of the 
New York State Prison Department, 
vainly petitioned the U. S. Immigration 
Service to adopt fingerprinting. The offi- 
cial reply was "... The Bertillon Sys- 
tem is the most advantageous for the 
needs of this Service." 

But Captain Parke was not by any 
means a lone champion, and once again 
the subject of Dermatography found ap- 
preciative and able support in Dr. Henr\' 
P. de Forest, Ph.B., M.S., and Fellow 
of the New York Academy of IMedicine. 
Here was a second Galton with percep- 
tion beyond his contemporaries ;and large- 
ly through his historic efforts were the 
American people destined once again to 
share the benefit of a heritage from an- 
tiquity. 

For some time prior to and during the 
year 1900, the New York Civil Service 
Commission had been encountering diffi- 
culties with the numerous applicants for

civic employment. An artful subterfuge 
resorted to by poorly qualified but ambi- 
tious petitioners, was that of hiring some 
vigorous but unscrupulous impersonator 
to take the required tests, and thus fraud- 
ulently attain a qualifying e-\amination 
rating. This regrettable practice culmin- 
ated in unsavory scandal when some of 
the contestants, even after dishonestly se- 
curing appointment, failed to reimburse 
their spurious representative, who actu- 
ally brought legal action to recover what 
he considered his just fee. 

Fate Intervenes 

On June \^. \^Q2, Dr. de Forest was 
appointed head medical advisor in charge 
of all Civil Service physical examina- 
tions, and a few days later was called to 
a conference with Civil Service Commis- 
sioner Col. \Villis L. Ogden. The subject 
of this discussion was the creation of 
some reliable preventive measure to frus- 
trate any further attempts at misrepre- 
sentation b\' applicants. As a result. Dr. 
de Forest agreed to make a survey of 
available identification methods. 

On August 1, 1902, the doctor sailed 
for England, where his plans included 
a cross country bicycle tour in company 
with his wife, and later, a visit to Paris 
where he intended to make a thorough 
in\estigation of Bertillon's system at its 
source. However, the hand of fate in- 
tervened in the form of a newspaper ar- 
ticle appearing September 15, 1902, in an 
issue of the "London Daily Telegraph," 
captioned "Identification by Finger- 
prints." This item came quite casually 
to Dr. de Forest's notice, and very natu- 
rally aroused his immediate interest. The 
account related how one Harry Jackson, 
an ex-offender, had recently been recoll- 
ected of burglary by the fingerprints he 
had unwittingly left during the commis- 
sion of his latest crime. 

Ready Solution 

Sensing here a ready solution to his 
personal problem. Dr. de Forest at once 
\ isited Scotland Yard, and eventualh' 
met Sergeant Charles Collins, who was 
eager to furnish all needful information 
relati\'e to the Galton-Henry system em- 
ployed in the local bureau, which at that 
time contained over three hundred thou- 
sand fingerprint cards. 

Feeling well asured that further search 
would discover nothing superior to fin- 
gerprinting as an identification system, 
the doctor returned to New York. How- 
ever, he did subsequently meet Bertillon, 
and examined his method, and, on this 
later European venture, visited a num- 
ber of fingerprint bureaus, including those 
of Christiania, Stockholm, Copenhagen, 
St. Petersburg, Moscow, ^Varsaw, and

Vienna, as well as several others in Ger- 
many, This extended investigation was 
amply convincing, demonstrating beyond 
any question the marked superiority of 
fingerprint methods. 

Upon arrival at New York, in Oc- 
tober, 1902, after the initial contact with 
Scotland Yard, Dr. de Forest outlined 
his well formulated plan to Col. Ogden, 
who gave it personal approval and official 
sanction. Within a fortnight, the appro- 
priate forms and other needful items were 
prepared, and a modern fingerprint file 
had its debut in the United States of 
America. 

First Applicant 

The expediency of this form of regis- 
tration was of high importance in this 
instance, since at that time, between 
twenty and thirty thousand Civil Service 
applicants were examined annually in 
the city. Dr. de Forest in his writings 
asserts that during the ten years he occu- 
pied the position of Chief Medical Ex- 
aminer, the aspirants to city employment 
who passed through his bureau number- 
ed well over a quarter of a million. 

Following the installation of the new 
registration bureau, the first person to be 
recorded was a Mr. James Johnson, an 
applicant for membership in the New 
York City Fire Department, whose fin- 
gerprints were taken on December 19, 
1902. Since this individual plays so mate- 
rial a part in fingerprint history, it is 
gratifying to relate that he was success- 
ful in his examinations, and was appoint- 
ed on September 21, 1903, being assigned 
for duty on the fireboat "Zopher Mills." 

A quarter century's active service was 
marked by transfer, promotion, and nu- 
merous recognitions for distinguished 
performance under hazardous circum- 
stances, concluding with honorable re- 
tirement, when James Johnson was pen- 
sioned from the department on June 6, 
1928. 

Pattern Unchanged 

Throughout Dr. de Forest's many anil 
varied activities, the subject of Dernia- 
tography ever remained a fascinating 
study, and his academic interest furnish- 
ed invaluable support in bringing the 
science into general recognition and ac- 
ceptance. He was later elected to the 
presidency of the subsequently organized 
International Society for Personal Iden- 
tification, which distinguished post his 
enthusiastic constituents would not per- 
mit him to relinquish for a fvill decade. 
Upon final retirement from office, he was 
honored by a testimonial dinner at the 
Hotel McAIpin, in New York City, on 
the evening of January 26, 1935. Num- 
bered among the many noteworthy guests

was Mr. James Johnson, anil, during the 
program, his fingerprints were again re- 
corded by Dr. de Forest after an interval 
of thirty-three years. Needless to say, the 
pattern forms showed no material altera- 
tion. 

At about the time of Dr. de Forest's in- 
\ estigative trip through England, another 
American executive faced a dilemma. 
During the summer of 1902, Cornelius 
V. Collins, Superintendent of Prisons in 
New York State, was having the custom- 
ary difficulty with Bertillon files in the 
identification bureaus of various state in- 
stitutions; as usual, with large collections 
of records, the system's defects were be- 
coming glaringly apparent. The urgency 
was such that he dispatched two repre- 
sentatives to Europe, with the purpose of 
studying identification methods employed 
there, in the hope of discovering some 
better system for the subclassification of 
Bertillon cards in the American regis- 
tries. 

Fingerprints Superior 

The men selected for this mission were 
the Hon. Charles K. Haker, Chief Clark, 
New York Prison Department, and Dr. 
R. B. Lamb, of Dannemore State Hos- 
pital. These emissaries made a careful 
survey of foreign procedures, including 
both the French and British, returning 
to the United States convinced, as was 
Dr. de Forest, that fingerprint identifi- 
cation is superior to all other forms. To 
their sponsor, they presented a recom- 
mendation for the adoption of finger- 
printing, which met with approval. Su- 
perintendent Collins turned over the text- 
books and other collected data to an al- 
ready mentioned executive. Captain James 
H. Parke of the Prison Department, for 
installation and development. 

Captain Parke's lively interest and ap- 
plication constituted yet another gener- 
ous subscription to the cause, since he 
not only mastered the Galton-Henry sys- 
tem, but also devised additional exten- 
sions thereto, and, by 1903, was finger- 
printing all inmates in the New York 
penal institutions. 

Captain Parke's initial position of 
prison guard was eventually followed by 
promotion to the important post of 
Parole Statistician of the New "^'ork 
State Prison Department. His mastery 
of fingerprint methods led to such out- 
standing and useful results that it was 
decided to make an exhibit of this tech- 
nique in conjunction with the Bertillon 
system at the forthcoming St. Louis Ex- 
position. This was done, with the unex- 
pected outcome that the interesting dis- 
play prepared and presented by Captain 
Parke was awarded the Grand Prize.

Inspector Ferrier 

A name justifying especial recognition 
and remembrance in latter day finger- 
print history is that of Inspector John 
Kenneth Ferrier, of Scotland Yard, 
whose presence in America, though cir- 
cumstantial, was of utmost importance 
to the science of modern identification. 

When the abo\e mentioned World's 
Centennial Exposition was held at St. 
Louis in 1904, Kind Edward of Eng- 
land loaned the Jubilee presents of Queen 
Victoria, which included the famous 
Kohinoor, then the largest diamond in 
the world, to be placed on exhibition 
there. Some idea of the value represent- 
ed by these jeweled treasures gathered 
from all parts of the empire, is indicated 
by the fact that the collection was in- 
sured for fifteen million dollars. To ac- 
company and constantly guard the ex- 
hibit, a number of picked men were se- 
lected from Scotland Yard, among them, 
Mr. Ferrier. Scotland Yard also had an 
exhibit at the Exposition, and, of this dis- 
play, Mr. Ferrier was in personal charge. 

At that time, American identification 
procedure was still consistently impeded 
by anthropometry, although Great Bri- 
tain and her possessions had for several 
years demonstrated the superiority of fin- 
gerprints in their modern application. But 
American police officers, then frequently 
of the stolid, sedentary "nightwatchman" 
type, had, with some few and scattered 
exceptions, little knowledge or curiosity 
regarding the methods employed by for- 
eign departments. 

Impossible Task 

In Scotland Yard, Mr. Ferrier's du- 
ties had been largely in the identification 
bureau under the tutelage of Sir E. R. 
Henry, and consequently he was a hearty 
advocate of his teacher's precepts. Arriv- 
ing in St. Louis April 10, 1904, he lost 
no time voicing to local authorities the 
praises of fingerprinting. But, as usual, 
the suggestions encountered cynical skep- 
ticism. This was both unfortunate and 
inexcusable, since Ferrier's contentions 
were amply objectified by several actual 
displays of fingerprints at the Exposition. 
However, Mr. Ferrier was definitely a 
person not to be lightly discouraged, and 
energetically continued his missionary 
endeavors. AVith such insistence did he 
press his cause that many of his listeners 
styled him a tiresome fanatic, on the pop- 
ular assumption than any departure from 
convention must necessarily be all wrong. 

^Vith scant appreciation and less un- 
derstanding for all that Ferrier was offer- 
ing, the St. Louis officers conceived the 
idea of quieting him by setting what they 
considered an impossible task for their

uouKl be instructor. Just prior to this 
time, there had been arrested in that city 
a confidence man of polished appearance, 
who ensnared his numerous victims b\ 
most impressive and official looking en- 
posing as a member of the royal family 
of England, under the name of "Lord 
Harrington. " With this fictitious creden- 
tial, his pretensions sufficed to dupe a 
sizeable number of unsuspecting citizens 
into making generous but ill advised 
"loans," which of course were never re- 
paid. But the smooth swindler finally 
overstepped himself, and his arrest fol- 
lowed, with the final disposition of a term 
in the Jefferson City Penitentiary. 

This dubious person was selected as a 
foil in the attempted hoax on the presum- 
ably ill prepared Scotland Yard e.xpert. 
The penitentiary warden was instructed 
to bring the prisoner to St. Louis, osten- 
sibly for an additional check on his rec- 
ord. ^Vhen not on duty at the Exposition 
groLinds, Ferrier and his fellow officers 
as well usually spent considerable leisure 
time in the St. Louis identification bur- 
eau. When the guards arrived with their 
prisoner, the bureau superintendent called 
Ferrier, explaining that the prisoner's 
true identity and previous behavior were 
not known, which was partially true, but 
that he was suspected of having been ar- 
rested in England, and "would Inspector 
Ferrier please try to secure the needful 
information ?" 

Fingerprints on Foolscap 

There is little doubt that Ferrier was 
fully aware of the essayed duplicity, and 
probably experienced keen though tacit, 
amusement at the futile gesture. How- 
ever, he outwardly accorded every respect 
to the apparent dignity of the occasion. 
Since obviously there was no conventional 
fingerprint equipment at hand, Ferrier 
blackened the prisoner's digits with a 
common rubber-stamp pad, and rolled 
the impressions on a sheet of foolscap. 

No inkling of any sort was offered as 
to the subject's true name, and a plain 
prison uniform had replaced the erst- 
while conspicuously British Prince Al- 
bert coat and striped trousers ; gone were 
the lordly monocle and high hat. The 
gleeful pranksters felt sure that Ferrier's 
chances of establishing an identification 
were practically nil. But Ferrier had se- 
cured more intimate data than all the 
rest, fingerprints; and with no indication 
of his inward reactions, he departed with 
the promise to contact Scotland Yard at 
once. 

Highly elated at what they considered 
the "exposure " of an over radical zealot, 
Ferrier's smug hecklers then forthwith 
dismissed from their complacence all 
thought of him and his "outlandish" sug-

gestions. But the finger of destiny had 
once again intervened to mark a shifting 
page, and some days later there arrived 
at the St. Louis identification bureau a 
velope displaying the seal of His Majes- 
ty's Service. This proved to be a letter 
from the Criminal Identification Divi- 
sion, New Scotland 'V'ard, Metropolitan 
Police, acknowledging receipt of the late 
request forwarded through Sergeant John 
K. Ferrier, and enclosing photographs of 
"Lord Barrington," whose true name 
was shown to be "Barton," copies of his 
fingerprints, and his complete criminal 
history, showing many prior arrests and 
convictions under various aliases, until 
his departure from England. 

Factual Evidence 

Here was factual evidence to convince 
the most dull-witted skeptic, and former 
apathy now gaped in dumb amazement. 
Ferrier, who had purposely shunned the 
police station pending the letter's arrival, 
was eagerly sought for, and a special 
messenger respectfully requested that he 
confer with the Chief of Police as soon 
as conveniently possible. The conclusion 
of the episode was an enthusiastic class 
of fingerprint students, organized and in- 
structed by Ferrier during the summer 
and fall of 1904 ; and Ferrier writes that, 
following the recognition and adoption 
of fingerprints in the St. Louis police de- 
partment, the first prisoner to be thus 
recorded was one Percy Ogilvie, sen- 
tenced to three months' imprisonment for 
obtaining money by false pretensions. 

This briefly outlined drama was but 
one of many eventualities resulting from 
Mr. Ferrier's noteworthy and versatile 
efiorts. His pupils became subsequent 
teachers ; public lectures, demonstrations 
before representative groups, together 
with numerous written articles, served 
to disseminate useful information which 
was to identify Sergeant John Kenneth 
Ferrier, later promoted to Inspector, as 
one of the more prominent personalities 
in the modern field of personal identifi- 
cation.

MAYOR ROBINSON'S 
CHRISTMAS MESSAGE. 1952 

1 o every man, every woman and par- 
ticularly to every child in San Fran- 
cisco, I wish a flood tide of happiness 
this Christmas. 




Mayor Elmer Robinson 
The people of our City, ever since our 
foLuuliiip:, have been kindly, warm hearted 
and high spirited, and in this City, where 
so many people of different races and 
national origins form one unit, the tre- 
mendous meaning of Christmas has al- 
ways bee recognized as the pattern of our 
community life: Peace on earth to men 
of good will. 

Let all of us, each in his own way, 
at this blessed season, follow noblest im- 
pulses of our hearts and souls; let us 
embrace wholeheartedly that spirit of 
forgiveness and kindly tolerance to all 
our fellow men so that we may be coimt- 
ed among those who are in truth and in 
fact men of good will. 

May every child in our City enjoy 
the happiness that belongs to children at 
this holy season, and may we, their 
elders, catch the reflections of their hap- 
piness and make it our own. 

I hope that the peace, the content- 
ment and the happiness of the Christ- 
mastide will abide with you and yours 
throughout every da\' of the coming year. 



Foothill Police Chief 

(Conlinurii from paaf 9) 

Anyway, as far as the chief is con- 
cerned, the poisonings fall into the cate- 
gory of unsolved crimes. There are not 
many of those in Los Gatos, and Phil-

are.

The conference is composed of the 
Central Council of Civic Clubs, the 
Down Town Association, The San 
Francisco Chamber of Commerce and 
the San Francisco Planning and Hous- 
ing Association. 

The organization's chairman, Roger 
D. Lapham, Jr., in a letter to Gaffey 
said : "You and your Department have 
made a splendid move in your effort to 
bring about a free flow of traffic in the 
congested areas of San Francisco. This 
certainly meets with the approval of the 
Traffic Conference. As you know, it is 
part of our Ten Point Traffic Action 
Program. 

"We hope that the good work will 
continue. It has already given assistance 
not only to those driving cars, but also 
to transit via bus, trolley and street car, 
and an improvement has been noticeable 
during the past few days. 

"We want you to know that your 
efforts are greatly appreciated, and we 
sincerely thank you, the Police Com- 
mission and the Police Department for 
making this move toward an improved 
flow of traffic in San Francisco."

MYSTERIOUS RATTLES 

In the all-steel automobile body noises 
due to looseness are likely to be harder 
to find, points out the National Automo- 
bile Club. Metal parts and large panels 
are likely to serve as transmission lines, 
carrying the noise from its point of origin 
to qin'te another part of the machine. The 
noise that you cannot locate alone may 
be easier to find it you have someone else 
drive the car while you concentrate upon 
finding the cause.

the International Association of Chiefs of 
Police for 14 years, has been appointed 
assistant director in charge of extension 
services of the Traffic Institute of North- 
western University, Evanston, 111. 

Mr. Loveless assumed his new duties 
(October 1st, according to Franklin M. 
Kreml, director of the Institute. 

As head of the Institute's extension 
program, Mr. Loveless, through field 
consultation on traffic organizational, ad- 
ministrative, and training matters, will 
assist graduates and their departments to 
achieve maximum utilization of the train- 
ing received at the Institute. 

A former member of the Indiana State 
Police, Mr. Loveless joined the lACP 
Traffic Division in 1938 after his gradu- 
ation from Harvard's Bureau of Traffic 
Research (now at Yale University). 

He served as ^Vest Coast field repre- 
sentative for the lACP Traffic Division 
until January 1, 1951, when he resigned 
to become director of public safety for 
the L'niversity of Washington in Seattle. 
In this capacity he directed the establish- 
ment of the University's police force and 
served as civil defense director. 

In the Spring of 1952 he rejoined the 
staff of the lACP Traffic Division of 
Evanston. 

Among the police departments whose 
traffic supervision programs Mr. Loveless 
has helped reorganize for the lACP 
Traffic Division are: Knoxville and 
Memphis, Tenn. ; Los Angeles, Oak- 
land, San Francisco, San Diego, Stock- 
ton and Palo Alto, Calif.; Portland, 
Ore.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Boise, Idaho, and 
the L'tah Highway Patrol. 

Mr. Loveless served 36 months in the 
Army in World War II, engaged pri- 
marily in traffic and transportation work 
in Africa, Sicily, France, and Germany. 
He held the rank of major when released 
from active duty. He is a graduate of 
Indiana State College. 



PROLONGS THE MILEAGE 

Highly recommended by motor car 
experts is the practice of allowing the 
service station to check the tires every 
five thousand miles to see if front and 
rear tires should be switched, and 
whether the same thing should be done 
to those on the right and left sides of the 
car, reports the National Automobile 
Club. It is a way of prolonging tire 
mileages that never occurs to many mo- 
torists.

TAKE IT EASY 

In getting out of mud or sand, motor-

avoid spinning of the wheels, to prevent 
them from digging in deeply, points out 
the National Automobile Club. While 
it may be necessary to use low gear, do 
not open the throttle any more than is 
absolutely necessary.

MOVE YOUR HOUSE, MR. 

When the engineers get to straighten- 
ing out the kinks in our streets ami high- 
ua\s, they quite often find that their new 
alignment runs right through a cluster 
of houses. In the past this has usually 
meant that the occupants would have to 
move out, and the houses would have to 
be razed to the ground. But in the fu- 
ture, according to the National Automo- 
bile Club, this might not always be the 
case, for the gadgeteers have moved into 
the scene with a gadget to end all gad- 
gets, a giant contraption that can pick up 
a thirty by sixty-foot three story brick 
house and trundle it off down the street 
without even making a crack in the plas- 
ter, wihtout even rocking that old rock- 
ing chair. 

With the new contraption, as with the 
older methods of house moving, the major 
part of the work comes in the preliminary 
stages when the house is being prepared 
to be moved. It has to be "cut loose from 
its roots." Electrical and plumbing lines 
have to be se\ered. Large holes have to 
be cut in the basement walls so the giant 
twelve-by-tvvelve timbers can be thrust 
through to carry the load. Then hy- 
draulic jacks have to be inserted and the 
whole house raised up, and sometimes 
slid along a little, to put it in a position 
to be carried away. And then, before the 
actual moving takes place, the course of 
tra\el has to be surveyed and a careful 
check made on all the clearances. 

After these preliminaries have been 
taken care of, the gadget takes over. 
Backing up to the house, it slips its great 
U-shaped prongs around the walls, strong 
steel beams are slipped into place, and 
then the giant goes rolling off on its ten- 
foot diameter tires, carrying the house off 
down the street with the same ease that 
you or I might carry off the family gro- 
ceries in the family car. To make sure 
that the driver gets himself into no tight 
corners, a man walks ahead of him to 
survey the bumps and turnings and tele- 
phones his findings back to the cab by 
means of a portable telephone. 

Some time back about a hundred homes 
were moved in Chelsea, Massachusetts, 
by this new method, and it proved so 
efficient that it soon should be being put 
to use in all corners of the countrv. 



THAT INSIDE DIRT 

That discoloration on the inside of a 
windshield glass usually is a byproduct 
of smoke, according to the National 
Automobile Club. The moisture in the 
exhalation of a cigar, cigarette, or pipe 
tends to strike against the glass and re- 
main there in the form of a discoloring 
mist.

LOCK YOUR CAR 

Approximately 467 automobiles are 
stolen every week in the year according 
to F.B.I, records and, with the e.xcep- 
tion of towns vmder 25,000 population, 
car theft is on the increase. 

Here are some suggestions from the 
National Automobile Club that will 
help the motorist keep his car from being 
stolen : 

First, always lock the car if planning 
to leave it for any length of time. In 
addition to locking the doors and taking 
the ignition keys, the motorist should 
also lock the trunks. Thieves in many 
localities make it a practice just to take 
tires and tools which are found in un- 
locked luggage compartments or trunks. 

Some motorists when shopping have a 
habit of leaving their cars unlocked for 
a moment to run into a store and pick 
up some article, planning to be away 
from their cars for but a brief moment. 
During the Christmas holiday season, 
passing thieves are tempted by packages 
which can be quickly and easily taken 
from the unlocked car. Rifling of cars by 
roving theives is common in many cities 
causing tourists to lose luggage, clothes 
and packages. When there are anv pack- 
ages in the car, the wise driver will keep 
it locked when he parks, even though he 
plans to be away but for a few minutes. 

It is a good idea for the driver to 
park his car close to his home at night. 
If possible, it should be parked in the 
garage or at least in one's own yard. If 
the motorist has no garage or yard, he 
should leave it in front of his home. In 
crowded or apartment areas this may be 
difficult. In such event the safe minded 
driver will park as near a street light as 
possible. 

^Vhen traveling out of town, the mo- 
torist should keep his parked automobile 
as close to him as possible and to keep it 
locked at all times. The added time it 
takes a stranger in town to alert the local 
police provides good get-a-way time for 
the thieves. 

If motorists will make it more difficult 
for the thieves by taking added pre- 
cautions, they can reduce the number of 
cars stolen every week. 



THE METEOR CRATER 

Meteor Crater, located nventy-one 
miles west of ^Vinslow and seven miles 
south of U. S. Highway No. 66 in Ari- 
zona, is reported by the National Auto- 
mobile Club to have been formed by the 
landing of a huge meteor. It is regarded 
as one of the world's wonders.

IDLE HANDS SWELL 
TRAFFIC TOLL 

1. Don't make the other fellow guess; 
give a hand signal and give it correctly. 

2. The driver behind you — unless he 
is a fortune teller or a first class mind 
reader — has no definite means of know- 
ing what you are going to do, so: "Give 
him a hand." 

3. To avoid pileups at stopping places 
the law says we must gi\e notice of what 
we are going to do at least fifty feet 
ahead of the place at which we wish to 
stop or turn. The law also states that 
drivers, before stopping, starting or turn- 
ing their cars, must see that same may 
be done in safety to themselves and to 
the traveling public. 

4. Under the provisions of the Vehi- 
cle Act only three arm signals are recog- 
nized: 1. The Horizontal — with the left 
arm and hand extended horizontally, for 
left hand turns ; 2. The Verticle — with 
the left hand and arm extended upward 
beyond the left side of the vehicle, for 
right hand turns ; 3. The Downward — 
with the left hand and arm extended 
downward beyond the left side of the 
vehicle, for sudden stopping or decrease 
of speed. 

5. A "waving" of the left hand, indi- 
cating to move forward, or to denote a 
backward or a swerve movement, is not 
legal. 

6. A "last second" use of the legal 
hand signals is no defense in actionable 
suits for damages. The provisions of the 
Act are definite in this matter and re- 
quire: "signal be given continuously dur- 
ing the last fifty feet before stopping or 
turning." 

7. Failure to give the mandatory hand 
signals is culpable laziness. Hand signals 
are easily given and there is no reason for 
the common scene of five or six automo- 
biles, at a crossing, with damaged fend- 
ers and radiators, because the lazy driver 
at the head of the line failed to give the 
legally required signal with his idle left 
hand. 



VISOR WORKS TWO WAYS 

Many a motorist apparently forgets 
that the sun visor on his car works two 
ways, that it may be adjusted to keep out 
the sun rays coming from the side as well 
as those coming through the windshield. 
Cross rays, points out the National Au- 
tomobile Club, are just as annoying at 
certain times as those that come directly 
from the front.

MEET THE NEW CHAMP 

(Continued from page i) 

the most part, it was. For the most part, 
we say. We have a sneaking hunch that 
we had the best of the holiday season, 
thanks to your presence. We know what 
some of you went through during those 
hectic two weeks. 

The highway patrolmen, for instance. 
You don't have to tell us that you are 
glad the holidays are over. ^Ve saw what 
kind of a hellish time you had every time 
we picked up a paper and we sympa- 
thized with you. But we want you to 
know we appreciated your efforts. If you 
had not been around there would have 
been more of us on those gurneys in the 
morgue. 

And then there was the group of dep- 
uties from the Santa Clara County Sher- 
iff's office who had to go out to Garden 
Gate Village in Cupertino the day before 
Christmas. The memory of those three 
little kids couldn't have been pleasant 
the next day. 

Of course there was the chief of police 
in Arcadia who had the little old lady 
who robbed banks in the jug on Christ- 
mas day. His feelings must have been 
mixed as he sat down to his turkey. 

Yes, it was a tough year for us all 
right. But we still think we had the 
best of the holidays. Frankly, we had 
nothing but a good time. We hope that 
most of you did. Anyway, we have a new 
j'ear growing up. And you want to keep 
an eye on that kid. Don't let anyone 
tout you off him. He has the makings 
of a real champ. Knowing he's around 
makes it easier to wish a "Happy New 
Year" to all of you. 



UNCLEVER AND COSTLY 

"Flashy" drivers think it is clever to 
hold the car in second gear until high 
speeds are reached, points out the Na- 
tional Automobile Club. Such flashiness 
costs them dearly in gasoline, for the 
amount of gasoline consumed is about 
double that consumed under ordinary 
driving conditions. Shift into high before 
reaching twenty-five miles per hour, top. 



SPEED KILLS 

Speed is a subtle and sudden killer, 
warns the National Automobile Club. 
If your engine has power, let it be power 
in reserve. If the highway is wide and 
smooth, use it but don't abuse it. Don't 
give this killer a chance to kill you. 

LOOK BOTH WAYS 

Look both ways before you cross the 
street, advises the National Automobile 
Club.

FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE 



During the month of February, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-three 

mfxtn Sark 1. (!ll?anpa 

SAN FRANCISCO POLICE DEPARTMENT 

combined courage, ingenuity, preparation and intelligence to turn a difficult situation 
into the outstanding example of a single piece of police work to take place in the 
State of California in this period. 

On the 8th day of February, Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-three, Officer Chaney, tvhile 
patrolling his beat along Ocean Beach, heard distress calls from Barbara Engs, who 
had been swept away from her rubber boat and out to sea by the surf. Officer Chaney 
turned his horse and, disregarding the danger to himself, rode more than 100 yards 
offshore to rescue Miss Engs. 

The Journal lauds not only the courageous action of Officer Chaney, who ivillingly 
risked his life to save the girl, but the foresight which enabled the officer to train his 
horse to enter the surf in preparation for such an emergency. 

In recognition of this outstanding service to his department, his profession and the 
people of the State of California, the Police and Peace Officers' Journal takes 
pleasure in presenting him with this Certificate of Merit.

"INVASION FROM WITHIN" 



Jn address delivered to the national 
convention of the National Automatic 
Merchandising Association at the Palmer 
House, Chicago, Illinois. Mednesday . 
September VI, 1952. by '('■ H. Parker, 
Chief of Police, Los Angeles. California. 



In our country's 176 years of exist- 
ence, it has been subjected many times to 
attack. We have taken no joy in war- 
fare, but as enemies appeared we have 
fought . . . we have paid the price . . . 
and we ha\e won the victory. It is a 
comforting thing . . . this habit of win- 
ning. It makes easy the belief that we 
shall always win . . . that we are a 
chosen people . . . that victory forever is 
a sort of birthright of ours. I earnestly 
hope it is so. I hope we represent, as 
some people believe, civilization's pin- 
nacle. I hope the hard and immutable 
rules which have governed other civili- 
zations do not apply to us . . . that even 
though we give wa\- to weakness, com- 
placency, and corruption, we are fore- 
destined to endure to the end. 

Rotting Timbers 

I say "I hope " but I cannot say "I am 
certain." A lifelong pleasure of mine has 
been the study of history and that pur- 
suit is not conducive to shallow opti- 
mism. Egypt, Babylon, Greece and Rome 
rose, then fell, as strength gave way to 
weakness, alertness gave way to compla- 
cency, and \irtue gave way to corrup- 
tion. It is interesting, and perhaps pro- 
ductive, to recall that the high walls of 
these civilizations were never toppled by 
barbarians from without. But the walls 
crumbled into rubble and the enemy 
poured through when barbarism within 
rotted the moral supporting timbers. 

Today America faces the kind of at- 
tack which destroyed these brave civili- 
zations of the past. We face a three 
pronged threat, a simultaneous assault in 
three dimensions: Armed might of Rus- 



OUR COVER 

Officer Jack E. Chaney of the San 
Francisco Police Department ap- 
pears on the cover of the Police 
.•iND Peace Officers' Journal 
this month after winning the Maga- 
zine's monthly award for the out- 
standing piece of police work in the 
State of California. 

Officer Chaney is shown riding 
his horse beachward after being 
relieved of his rescue mission by 
Officer William Becker, a former 
lifeguard, and Walter Wehr, chief 
lifeguard at Fleishhacker Pool. Since 
effecting the rescue of Barbara Engs, 
a 17-year-old El Cerrito high school 
girl who had been swept away from 
a rubber boat by the surf, Chaney has 
received a certificate of merit from 
the Police and Peace Officers' 
Journal. A $50 United States 
Savings Bond has been purchased by 
the Police and Peace Officers' 
JfjURNAL and delivered in his name 
to the San Francisco Police Commis- 
sion who will present it to him; is 
being considered for a meritorious 
service award by the police commis- 
sion. His horse. Bill, has been pre- 
sented with a certificate from Pets 
Unlimited. 

Chaney's ride into the surf was 
one of the most spectacular individ- 
ual acts to be contributed by a Cali- 
fornia peace officer for a long time. 
He was a natural choice for the S50 
bond award and the certificate of 
merit. However, the act which wins 
the bond does not have to be spec- 
tacular. Keep us informed on what 
you and your friends have been do- 
ing. Any one of you may turn up a 
winner. 



.v;V;, the Communist fifth column within 
our borders, and organized crime. Let 
us gauge the strength of these enemies 
and the security of our defense against 
them. 

External Danger 
To speak at length about the dangers 
presented by an aggressively militant 
Russia is scarcely necessary today. The 
Russian nation presents an external dan- 
ger, a danger that can be clearly defined 
and squarely faced. Security from this 
threat demands a protective force of sol- 
diers and rifles, tanks and field guns, 
naval guns, aircraft, and production of, 
the vast supporting paraphernalia of 
modern war. \\'e may disagree for a 
time about the necessary size of armies, 
design of equipment, or level of produc- 
tion : But, you may be certain, as in the 
past, America will armor herself and 
raise her walls in time to meet these 
barbarians from without. 

No Comic Opera 

The second threat is posed by a com- 
munist fifth column within our borders. 
By force and violence they hope to de- 
stroy our government and supplant our 
ideals with an alien philosophy. This 
threat, more insidious than invading 
armies, is dangerous because it is some- 
thing unique in our experience. During 
the last war a few sympathizers with 
the Fourth Reich and Imperial Japan 
scored some minor successes within this 
country. However, in all fairness to his- 
tory, we cannot recall them as a major 
threat to our security. They furnished as 
much materials to our screen writers as 
they did aid to our enemy. Compared 
with the disciplined agents of Interna- 
tional Communism, they were country 
bumpkins cast in second rate Gilbert and 
Sullivan. The danger created by the 
communist fifth column is not comic 
opera. It is real and it is potent. Its

SCHOOL OPENS FOR S. P. D. 



/•'<-/. 



ruary 



1953 



^Vithin the next few weeks the Sacra- 
mento Police Department will open a 
full time police academy, offering new- 
comers and old timers on the force a 
constant service training program. 

The start of the academy will repre- 
sent a major victory for Chief James V. 
Hicks, who has advocated the idea for 
se\eral years. 

The school will be organized accord- 
ing to plans developed by the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation. Sergeant H. 
D. Meredith will be the supervisor, 
working under the direction of Captain 
Walter C. Sked. 




Chief Hicks 

Year Around Operation 

It will be operated the year around 
and each officer, with the exception of the 
real old timers, will be required to at- 
tend a two-week course every six months. 
All phases of law enforcement, includ- 
ing public relations, will be taught. 

In addition to the regular courses 
which will be offered to the police and 
civil defense groups the academy will 
feature special training in radiological 
defense and traffic control under emer- 
gency conditions. 

FBI Graduates 

The instructors will include the super- 
vising officers of all divisions in the po- 
lice department and other officers who 
have had specialized training in various 
phases of law enforcement. Several of 
the men who will be instructors, includ- 
ing the chief himself, are graduates of 



the Federal Bureau of Investigation Na- 
tional Academy in Washington, D. C. 
FBI agents, members of the state 
bureau of criminal identification and in- 
vestigation, representatives of the state 
bureau of narcotics and high patrol of- 
ficers also will teach. 

Training School Visits 
Each class will consist of about 25 
men. They will be held in the police 
academy at 1215 Nineteenth Street. In 
preparation for the opening, Sked and 
.Meredith visited police training schools 
in San Francisco. Los Angeles, Oakland 
and Berkeley. 

Meredith formerly was superinten- 
dent of the police department's bureau 
of records and Sked was in charge of 
police training and motor equipment. 

One Forward Step 

The academy is just one of the for- 
ward steps Hicks is planning to keep the 
Sacramento department on a par with 
the best law enforcement agencies in the 
West. 

Hicks returned to the department No- 
vember 1st after an 18-month tour of 
duty in the Air Force. He holds the rank 
of colonel and was Air Provost Marshal 
and acting Inspector General of the huge 
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 
Ohio. 

Larger Force 

In fact, during the period he headed 
a larger police force than the one he 
returned to, a total of 400 civilian and 
100 Air police; ran a stockade which 
handled law violators from all services in 
the Second Army Area, and was in 
charge of all security clearance and in- 
\estigation for an average 30,000 ci\il- 
ian employes and 10,000 military per- 
sonnel. 

Hicks is a native of Fair Oaks, a Sec- 
ramento suburb, and was raised in the 
Sacramento area. In 1936 he joined the 
police department and was assigned as 
one of the original team to handle "Snow 
^^ bite." the accident investigation squad 
car. 

Rapid Rise 

On March 3, 1941 he went into the 
service as a lieutenant in the 184th In- 
fantry, California National Guard. His 
rise in the service was rapid. By the end 
of 1944 he was a colonel. He saw service 
in Africa and Europe. He returned to 
the police department as a patrolman, in 
1946, and the following year he was 
elevated to the chief's position. 



Hicks has won many honors in the 
service and in police work, but one he is 
particularly proud of is his title of Ad- 
miral in the Nebraska Navy. His old 
friend. Governor Dal Peterson, con- 
ferred the honor on him. 

AVhen he returned in November. 
Hicks replaced Fritz Kaminsky as chief. 
Kaminsk\' retired.

STOP AND REST 

SACRAMENTO — The California 
Highway Patrol has a special note ot 
caution for motorists who try to cram 
two days of driving into one. 

Patrol headquarters said squad com- 
manders throughout the state have re- 
ported a growing number of accidents 
involving sleepy or tired drivers. 

A preliminary breakdown of 1952 sta- 
tistics shows at least 2000 fatal and in- 
jury accidents can be charged to those 
causes. At least 100 were fatal, killing 
one or more persons. 

Officials said some accidents in the 
"cause unknown" classification were 
probably also the results of falling asleep 
at the wheel. Lack of survivors made 
complete investigation difficult, they 
added. 

\Vinter was singled out as an espe- 
cially dangerous time for this type of 
accident since the combination of closed 
car windows and car heaters frequently 
adds to any fatigue brought on by too 
man\' hours behind the wheel.

MAD DOG SOUTH OF THE SLOT 



Marco Biaginni fell face down across 
the bed. 

A scarlet geyser flowed freely from his 
shattered face and spread in an ever 
widening circle across the bedclothes. 
Stunned into sobriety the three witnesses 
stared stupidly at each other. 

"I can't understand it. He gave them 
the money," muttered one. 

"He's dead." 

"We'd better get out of here." 

"Why did they do it? He said he 
didn't have any more money." 

"They killed him. Shot him in cold 
blood." 

"There'll be cops in this. We'd better 
get out of here. " 

"Shouldn't we call an ambulance? " 

"It's no use. He's dead. We'd better 
get out of here.'' 

\Vith one final, horrified glance at the 
broken body on the bed the three men 
left the house, glancing furtively around 
them as they did. A few blocks away 
the trio entered a narrow stairway and 
knocked at a hall door. A man studied 
them briefly through a peephole, then let 
them in. "Whiskey. " one of them or- 
dered. 

The man placed a bottle and three 
glasses on the table. His guests poured 
tall drinks and gulped them down. They 
drank silently, but the liquor appeared to 
have no effect on their trembling hands. 
When the bottle was finished and police 
picked them upon the street an hour later 
the whiskey had done nothing other than 
increase their jitters. The date was Oc- 
tober 9. 1926. 

The flow of blood from the face of 
Marco Biaginni seemed endless to the 
three men who had been drinking in his 
kitchen when t\vo armed bandits entered, 
demanded money at the point of a gun. 
and shot the Italian in the face when he 
could not produce more than $75. T o 
the San Francisco police department it 
was the trickle that turned into a tor- 
rent. The gun that killed Marco Bia- 
ginni fired the opening shot of a three- 
day org>- of murder that is unparalleled 
in the history of San Francisco. 

Marco Biaginni never returned to 
consciousness. He died in the San Fran- 
cisco hospital a few days after he was 
found by a second part\" of revelers. The 
three witnesses, when rounded up. could 
only tell police that the killer was a 
young man with black hair. His accom- 
plice had remained in the hall. The 



/)'\ Walter R. Heco.x 

shooting occurred at about 7:30 p.m. It 
was only the beginning. 

At 9:00 p.m., while Lieutenant 
Charles Dullea. head of the robbery de- 
tail, sought to unravel the mystery of 
the holdup murder. Detective Sergeant 
George Healy, on duty at the desk in 
the detective bureau, received a repMjrt 
that a blue sedan, license number 766- 
954, had been stolen. The information 
was relayed to outlying stations and di- 
rected to the auto detail, where Lieuten- 
ant Bernard McDonald would receive 
it the next dav. 



^^^ 







Louis De Mattei 

Healy soon learned, however, that 
766-95+ was a stolen car that merited 
special consideration, and before the 
night was over Lieutenant McDonald 
had joined Dullea in a desperate attempt 
to capture a pair of vicious bandits who 
used the auto for violent crimes, striking 
at varied points in the city with madden- 
ing inconsistency. 

The car was first heard from at 1 1 
p.m. when Harry Giannini, a cab driver, 
was held up and robbed at the corner of 
Sutter and Steiner Streets. He saw the 
license number clearly — 766-95-1 — when 
the bandits, both of whom carried heavy 
caliber revolvers, escaped. 



Melville G. Mann, the next victim, 
reported the duo had taken S12 from him 
at Fillmore Street near Hayes. Mann 
was still in the act of reporting the crime 
when DetectiNe Charles McGreevy re- 
ceived word that the mobile marauders 
had struck again, this time with near 
tragic results, 

"There's been a shooting in a pool 
hall, " he told Healy. "Someone's hit. 
Two young men drove up in that blue 
sedan, walked into a place on Lombard 
Street, and shot it up." 

"Get out there and see what you can 
find out," snapped Healy. "We've got 
to get them before they tear the town 
apart. " 

McGreevy, with Detective Charles 
Dorman, hurried to the scene. There 
they found Constantine Guillen nursing 
a shattered right arm. The two bandits, 
one with black hair and buck teeth and 
the other with close-set eyes and a heavy 
boned face, had held up the place, then 
fired five shots, hitting Guillen twice in 
the arm and narrowly missing his wife. 
They had escaped in the dark blue sedan. 
McGreevv relaved this information to 
Healy. , 

"Dullea will come and take charge," 
Healy told him. "Get what you can 
there and go over to AVebster and Jack- 
son. Dr. Nicholas Jacobs was just robbed 
of S95 by the same guys." 

McGreevy and Dorman took brief re- 
ports, then hurried to the scene of the 
Jacobs robbery. While they listened to 
the doctor's stor\' the two bandits pro- 
ceeded to go a long way toward tearing 
the town apart. 

At 1 1 :35 they slugged Manuel Salada, 
robbed him of 515 and sent him to the 
hospital with a severely lacerated scalp. 
Ten minutes later they stopped on 
Bryant Street, robbed George Karlisky 
and kidnapped a companion. Mrs. Emma 
Bird. 

A few minutes later they tossed Mrs. 
Bird out of the car with the blunt state- 
ment: "You're too old," then sent An- 
thony Gonzales to the hospital with a 
brain concussion and minus an overcoat 
and 520. 

They ranged across Market Street and 
robbed John Copren of SIO and a watch. 
One block from the scene of the Jacobs 
robbery they snatched a handful of cash 
from the outstretched hand of cab driver 
Lester Irish who had just dropped a 
fare there. From Webster and Jackson

TRAFFIC TOLL 

California's 1952 traffic death toll has 
been tentatively set at 3618 as the Cali- 
fornia Highway Patrol begins its an- 
nual review of street and highway acci- 
dents. 

The provisional figure is about 4 per 
cent higher than 1951's toll of 3479 and 
is just slightly under the state's record 
death toll of 3668 marked up in 1946. 

Traffic deaths in rural and unincorpo- 
rated areas hit 2492, outnumbering ur- 
ban fatalities by more than 2 to 1. 

Reports covering the Patrol's opera- 
tional area outside city limits show 30,- 
379 fatal and injury accidents and 48,990 
persons injured. 

Injuries in rural and urban areas com- 
bined were estimated at well over 100,- 
000, but officials said it was impossible 
to set a firm figure until all reports from 
cities were in. 

Preliminary analysis of the major 
causes of 1952's near-record death toll 

indicates that, as usual, speed was the 
chief killer, with auto and pedestrian 
right-of-way violations and driving on 
the wrong side of the road close behind.

GASOLINE TAX DEDUCTIBLE 

Motorists have been reminded by the 
California State Automobile Association 
that sums paid for state gasoline taxes 
may be deducted in filing 1952 Federal 
income tax returns. This is the second 
\ear such deduction is allowed under a 
new law. 

The deduction covers the California 
gasoline tax of 4^2 cents a gallon paid 
since January 1, 1952. Federal gasoline 
taxes are not deductible. 

Alotorists without accurate records of 
the amount of gasoline purchased during 
1952 may justify a deduction based on a 
record of miles traveled divided by the 
average nimiber of miles the car runs 
per gallon. 

However, the CSAA warned that the 
burden of proving this deduction is 
placed on the taxpayer. \Vhere the gaso- 
line tax deduction is estimated, taxpaver'- 
should have evidence to prove miles trav- 
eled and gasoline consumption per mile. 

Motorists with oil company credit 
cards can easily determine the amount of 
gas tax paid during 1952. 

Other deductible items are: Retail 
sales or use taxes paid on purchase of 
automobiles and accessories; registration, 
vehicle license, operator and chauffeur 
license fees ; personal property and mu- 
nicipal taxes; amounts paid for interest 
on auto loans and losses or damages to 
vehicles not compensated for by insurance 
or otherwise.

Keep Your Driver Dry 



February 1953 



Sacramento is widely known as a place 
where it is higlily unprofitable as well as 
unhealthy to go careening around the 
streets behind the wheel of a car after 
imbibing too much giggle water. 

The particular reason is James M. 
McDonnell, the municipal court judge 
who hands out the fines — and sometimes 
jail sentences — for traffic offenses. 

National Recognition 
McDonnell works closely with the 
police department in trying to make the 
streets as safe as possible, and the results 
ha\e earned him national recognition. 




Judge McDonnell 

In December, 1948, for example, his 
court was awarded a first place tie witli 
Tulsa, Okla., in a traffic court contest 
among 47 cities with populations rpn''- 
ing from 100,000 to 200,000. The con- 
test was sponsored by the American Bar 
Association and the National Safetv 
Council. Judgs McDonnell was cited 
specifically for improvements he made in 
the court, which also has been sin^i'ed 
out for various other honors. 

In addition to handling traffic cases, 
the judge tries misdemeanors and pre- 
liminary hearings, but his pet is the traf- 
fic division of the court. 

$601,900 in Fines 
And this phase has really gotten to be 
big business. Last year, for e.xample, the 
court and the traffic violations bureati 
collected $601,900 in fines, mostly for 
traffic offenses. This represented an in- 



crease of 65 per cent from the total for 
the previous year. 

1 he figures show a steady increase 
since 1945, when the total amount col- 
letced was $122,954. By comparison, 
last year the drunk driving fines alone 
amounted to more than $100,000. 

City Prosecutor 

Judge McDonnell served as city 
prosecutor from December 13, 1939 un- 
til he was appointed police judge June 
26, 1940. He has been elected to office 
regularly since then without opposition. 

He is a graduate of the University of 
California and Hastings College of Law. 

Frequently the judge is called on to 
sit on the superior bench in nearby coun- 
ties in the absence of the regular judges. 
He is .a member of the State Judicial 
Council's subcommittee on pretrial court 
procedure. 



Here are some facts and figures 
about the traffic problem in Sacra- 
mento, compiled by the staff of Traf- 
fic Chief Patrick J. Bennett: 

Male drivers involved in traffic 
accidents in the city outnumbered 
women drivers nearly five to one in 
1952. 

The safest hours to drive are be- 
tween 4 AM and 6 AM ; the worst 
are 4 PM to 6 PM. Sunday is the 
safest day to go for a ride, Saturday 
the most dangerous. 

Last year there were 5,310 traffic 
accidents in Sacramento, an increase 
of 241 from the previous year. Ac- 
tually, when a big increase in regis- 
tration IS figured in, the accident 
percentage is down. 

Eighteen persons, 10 of them pedes- 
trians, died as the result of traffic 
accidents last year, representing the 
lowest death rate per 10,000 motor 
vehicle registrations since 1944. 

There were 1,153 injury accidents, 
compared with a 1951 total of 1,095, 
and 4,141 property damage mishaps 
against 3,856. 

Drivers in the 25 to 34 age group 
v\ere involved in the greatest number 
of accidents. The 35 to 44 year group 
followed. 

All told, 32,641 persons were cited 
or arrested for moving violations in 
1952, including 421 drunk drivers. 

Nonmoving citations totaled 74,- 
459, mostly involving careless parkers.

SACRAMENTO TRAFFIC REPORT 



Chict I'atrick J. Bennett of the Sac- 
ramento Police Department's Iraffic Di- 
vision has started a campaign to enlist 
the support of e\ery possible person ami 
organization in the Capital in a giant 
safety campaign. 

Although the division has been award- 
ed outstanding honors by national or- 
ganizations for performance every year 
since 1^48 in various phases of traffic 
work, Hennett believes a great deal more 
can be accomplished if everybody iti town 
pitches in. 

Cooperation Needed 
He had this to sav in his annual report 
to Police Chief James V. Hicks for 1952. 
which has been widely circulated in Sac- 
ramento : 

"This is for the purpose of bringing 
before the citizens of the community the 
need for real cooperation by scores of or- 
ganizations, working as one safety team ; 
also the need for getting active leadership 
and support from public officials, not a 
few, but more and more of them, and. 
finalh', to bring home to each individual 
the fact that it is his duty and responsi- 
bility to support this community's life 
saving program." 

Record Not Poor 

He pointed out the city's record in 
traffic injuries and deaths is by no means 
poor, but added: 

"This is nothing to boast about as long 
as we are killing and maiming our Sacra- 
mento people at the rate of approxi- 
mately 18 to 20 deaths and 1,100 to 
1.200 injuries a year. Besides this, the 
people must pay for the additional finan- 
cial loss due to 4,100 to 4.200 property 
damage accidents a year. 

Bennett is justifiably proud of the tre- 
mendous job his men have done in mak- 
ing Sacramento's jam packed streets as 
safe as they are, but he is planning to 
carry the safety message to every corner 
of the city in an effort to improve the 
record. 

Sacramento Gets Share 

The 1952 National Safety Council 
awards have not yet been announced, but 
if the past is any criterion, the Sacra- 
mento traffic division will get its share. 
In 1950 and 1951, for example, the di- 
vision won the top honor for record 
keeping in the NSC national contest. 
The award was won in competition with 
cities of all size, not just according to a 
population growth. Group and division 
awards also have been won bv the unit. 



in Safet)' Council and American Auto- 
mobile Association contests for traffic 
safet\' organization, outstanding achieve- 
ment and pedestrian safety. 




Captain Bennett 

Pedestrian safety is the Number One 
project with Bennett and his men. It has 
been since June, 1948, when a study of 
the records showed almost 100 per cent 
of the pedestrian fatalities were caused 
bv two law violations: Jaywalking and 
violating the right of way. 

Avoidable Deaths 

In other words, half the deaths might 
have been avoided if the pedestrians had 
observed right of way rules and the other 
half resulted from motorists breaking the 
law when the walker was in the right. 

A stringent program of selective en- 
forcement was put into efifect. The first 
year the fatalities dropped 36 per cent 
and it has kept going down ever since. 

Sacramento's traffic problem is a king 
size headache for a number of reasons. 
The most important, no doubt, is the fact 
that since 1946 there has been a 237 per 
cent increase in the number of motor ve- 
hicles registered to Sacramentans. While 
the population was growing by big leaps, 
the motor vehicle registration was gain- 
ing even more rapidly. For the last sev- 
eral years, Sacramento has had more 
motor vehicles per capita than any other 
place in the world. 

Moving Safely 

I o meet this situation, Bennett, as- 
sisted by Captain Kenneth John.son, Ser- 



geants \\ illiam Kinney, 'Fom Richer 
and Henjanuii Shiro and a greatly ex- 
panded department, are waging a 24 
hour a da\' fight to keep traffic mo\ ing 
in the safest way possible. 

A visitor to Sacramento for the first 
time in a few \ears would hardly rccog- 
nice the streets because of all the changes. 
One way streets ha\e been put into oper- 
ation throughout the city and more are 
planned. The scramble traffic system is 
in use at two of the main downtown in- 
tersections and will be used at many more 
in the near future. One of the biggest 
headaches for many years — double park- 
ing — has been eliminated through addi- 
tional loading zones and a crackdown 
a'ra'nst double parkers. 

Accident Facts 

Bennett has hit on a neat gimmick for 
getting his traffic safety message and his 
plea for cooperation over to the pub!'- 
and to public officials. His annual renorr 
is issued in a booklet form called Acci- 
dent Facts. Each graph or chart is illu ■.- 
trated with a cartoon. I hey are drawn, 
not by professional artists as the work 
indicates, but by I raffic Officers Francis 
Brazil, Preston Scott and Phillip ''i'ork. 

Fhe booklet analyzes pedestrian ileaths 
and injuries by age, sex, residence and 
time of day; all fatalities are listed b\- 
age group, rate per 10,000 motor \ ehicle 
registration, etc. But instead of a big list 
of dry statistics which the a\'erage person 
wouldn't look at twice, the facts are pre- 
sented in a brief, compact and entertain- 
ing way which really packs a punch. 

100,000 Cited 

And all the while this effort is being 
put into educating the public, a really 
tremendous amount of energy and time 
is being put into the job of making the 
streets as safe as possible. 

Last year, for example, Bennett's men 
for the first time arrested and cited more 
than 100,000 persons. The total number 
of arrests and citations was 107,100, 
against a previous high of 96,574 for 
1951.

GOODBY BLUE ROOM 



February 1953 



Sheriff Don Cox of Sacramento 
County figures things are looking bright- 
er this year than they have at any time 
during the 21 years he has been in office. 

He is particularly happy because at 
last something concrete is being done to 
better conditions in the Sacramento 
County Jail. 

For more than 10 years the sheriff has 
been pressing the county board of super- 




Sheriff Cox 

visors to expand the jail facilities. But 
progress was stalled at various times be- 
cause of material shortages, the war, lack 
of money and other reasons. 

Blue Room Gone 

But last month he finally got rid of 
the jail's socalled Blue Room when an 
annex to the jail was opened near the 
county road camp at Franklin, south of 
Sacramento. For years Cox had been 
complaining about the lack of space 
which forced him to put as many as 120 
men at a time in the Blue Room, wh'ch 
was nothing but a converted store 
room which never should have housed 
prisoners in the first place. 

The men were transferred to clean, 
well lighted army barracks type build- 
ings and the Blue Room was put into 
use for storage purposes. 

Expansion Planned 

And now, county officials have prom- 
ised Cox they also are going to enlarge 
the jail, which was built in 1909 to house 
140 men, but usually has nearly twice 



that ULimber even without the Blue 
Room. 

In addition to the jail prisoners, the 
sheriff has under his supervision two road 
camps which average about 450 prisoners 
throughout the year, and the jail annex, 
which houses about 120. 

The jail enlargement still is in a 
strictly preliminary stage, but Co.x is con- 
fident something definite will be done by 
the end of the year. 

Force Increased 

Another reason things are looking up 
around the sheriff's office is the fact addi- 
tional men have been added to the force 
to keep pace with the rapid growth of the 
population in the count}'. 

During the last year Cox's force grew 
by 20 meji. He was given 10 resident dep- 
uties, scattered throughout the county, 




Undersheriff Rippey 

who operate from their home areas, and 
have proven of great help. In addition, 
five men were added to man the jail an- 
nex, three more squad car men were 
hired and two additional transportation 
deputies were put on. His staff now to- 
tals 108. 

None Too Large 
Fhis is none too large, however, and 
more men probably will be hired during 
the year. 

Cox was appointed sheriff in 1932 
when his old boss, Ellis Jones, retired. 
He was luidersheriff at the time. Born 
in Spencer County, Ind., he came to 
California in 1911, worked at various 



jobs, and enlisted in the Navy in 1917. 
After his discharge in 1921 he joined the -I 
sheriff's office. 

Soon after he joined the force he took ! 
up the study of law to help him in his 
work. He was admitted to the bar in 
1926, and could hang out his lawyer's 
shingle any time he wanted to. 

RIPPEY PROMOTED 

William J. Rippey is the Undersher- 
iff of Sacramento County. 

Sheriff Don Cox appointed him to the 
post last July 1st when Harry Knoll 
retired. 

The promotion was deserved, for Rip- 
pey had been with the sheriff's office for 
\Sy2 years, and was a captain in charge 
of the sheriff's civil department when he 
was elevated. 

Born in San Francisco, he attended 
Sacramento schools and Healds Business 
College. He joined the force as a deputy 
and advanced to the rank of captain two 
years before he took over the undersher- 
iff's duties. He served in both the civil 
and criminal divisions. 

As Undersheriff he has supervision 
over all departments and is the chief ad- 
ministrative and personnel officer. 

Edwin P. Burns was elevated from 
lieutenant to captain when the change 
was made, and placed in charge of the 
i-'ivil department. He has been in the 
sheriff's office since 1945. 

ALL TIME HIGH 

California Highway Patrolmen halted 
about one out of every six drivers last 
year as the Patrol's enforcement activi- 
ties reached an all time high. 

A total of 681,121 citations and writ- 
ten warnings were handed out, with cita- 
tions alone running 439,324, a 21 per 
cent increase over 1951. 

Preliminary analysis of enforcement 
figures indicates that speeding, the state's 
No. 1 traffic killer, accounted for one 
third of all arrests. 

Officers charged up 25,046,071 miles 
during the year, an average of more than j 
20,000 miles for each of the Patrol's \ 
1200 traffic officers. 

IVucks figured prominently in the en- 
forcement picture. Officers made 751,- 
957 commercial vehicle inspections which 
resulted in 77,737 arrests and the writ- 
ing of 53,702 warnings. 

The Patrol also disclosed that more 
than 9500 arrests for drunk driving were 
made in 1952, a 13 per cent hike over 
1951.

Streamlined For Efficiency 



North Sacramento, the fast growing 
city just north of the Capital, has a repu- 
tation of being a place where very few 
serious crimes take place, and a big part 
of the credit goes to Police Chief Wil- 
liam Wilson anil his force.

his officers on the street as much of the 
time as possible. 

He solved it b\- hiring four women, 
Audre\' Caxiani, Eleanor Post, Bee Cur- 
tiss and Scyrillia Johnson, who handlf 



tion. When Wilson joined the force the 
citv's population was onlv 3,000. Now 
it is about 10,000. 

And traffic at the time was a trickle 
compared with the 25,000 to 30,000 cars 
a day which use Del Paso Boulevard, the 




The small but effective department 
has been streamlined for maximum effi- 
ciency since Wilson took o\er as chief in 
1945. He has been with the department 
for 15 years, and was assistant chief for 
five before he took charge of the depart- 
ment. 

Knotty Problem 

During the last year AVilson solved 
one of the department's knottiest prob- 
lems: How to get all the office work and

the radio, do clerical duties. ju\eiiile 
work, and other tasks, and when neces- 
sary double as matrons. 

This allows Chief Wilson and his men 
to spend nearly all of their time in the 
patrol cars, handling criminal and traffic 
work. 

Traffic Tough 
And if the crime rate is down in 
North Sacramento, the traffic problem 
has gone in exactly the opposite direc- 



city's main traffic artery. During recent 
years about 60,000 people have moved 
into the area just north of North Sacra- 
mento, and most of them make a two 
way trip through the city going to and 
from work daily. 

Low Accident Rate 

But despite the tremendous traffic flow 

the city has a very low traffic accident 

rate. 1 he Police Department was hon-

Harold j. McCurry, secretar\ -man- 
ager of the Retail Merchants Associa- 
tion of Sacramento, is the new president 
of the California State Automobile As- 
sociation. He was elected by the Asso- 
ciation Board of Directors at its annual 
meeting Thursday, January 15, in San 
Francisco. 




Harold J. McCuRRV 

McCurry was for many years an of- 
ficial of the California State Fair, super- 
vising press and radio activities. He gave 
up this civic work about a year ago when 
he retired as a vice president of the 
Banic of America, continuing as a mem- 
ber of the bank's advisory board in the 
state capital. He was formerly post- 
master at Sacramento and is a past presi- 
dent of the Sacramento Chamber of 
Commerce. 

CSAA membership at the close of 
1952 totaled 276,096, an increase of 
21,252 during the year, according to the 
annual report of Porter Sesnon, retiring 
president. 

Other officers elected for 1953 were 
Edward H. Peterson, San Francisco, and 
Charles G. Bird, Stockton, vice presi- 
dents; Fred J. Oehler, San Jose, treas- 
urer; D. E. Watkins, secretary and gen- 
eral manager; Edwin S. Moore, assist- 
ant secretary and general manager. 



Eight directors were elected at the 
Association membership meeting to new 
three-year terms on the CSAA board. 
They are: Clyde W. Rann, Redding 
Irving H. Kahn, Oakland; Porter Ses 
non, San Mateo; J. J. Krohn, Areata 
H. S. Basford, San Francisco; John R 
Graham, Merced ; Norman S. West 
Modesto, and J. B. Rice, San Rafael 

USE HORN ON CURVES 

Many drivers think it is a mark of 
good motoring sense to avoid use of the 
horn, according to the California State 
Automobile Association. However, there 
are circumstances when proper use of the 
horn characterizes good drivers. One 
such is on curves where vision is limited 
to 200 feet or less, as is the case on many 
mountain roads. The association warns 
that the law requires use of the horn 
when approaching such curves. 

This is one of the only two provisions 
concerning use of the horn in the entire 
vehicle code. The other regulation re- 
quires drivers to use their horns when 
necessary to insure safe operation of their 
cars and prohibits horn use for any other 
purpose. 

8.000 WARDENS NEEDED 

San Francisco would need about 8000 
Civil Defense Wardens to supplement 
the police force in case of a major disaster 
such as experienced by Hiroshima. 

In response to inquiry from the Civil 
Defense Director, Chief of Police Mi- 
chael Gaffey said, "it is computed that 
a nominal atomic burst, with similar ef- 
fect in scale to that experienced by the 
City of Hiroshima, would call for the 
services of 9200 officers to perform the 
police function. In that such an attack 
might leave this department with as few 
as 100 regular and 200 auxiliary surviv- 
ing members, it is believed that a mini- 
mum of 8000 wardens would be needed 
to supplement our force." 

MONTEZUMA WELL 

Montezuma Well, located in Arizona, 
is reported by the National Automobile 
Club to be a cup-shaped lake, seventy- 
eight feet below the surrounding terrain, 
seven hundred and fifty feet in diameter, 
and fed by subterranean waters of which 
there is no recorded depth. 



LAGOMARSINO RETIRES 

Fred S. Lagomarsino, the oldest man 
in the Sacramento Police Department in 
age and point of service, retired this 
month. 

Lagomarsino covered the downtown 
beats in the Capital for 40 years and 
seven months on foot, on a bicycle, on a 
horse and in cars, when he became 70 
years of age February 15th and hung up 
his uniform. 

"It doesn't seem like more than 40 
years have gone by since then," he com- 
mented. "I remember well the day they 
handed me my star, shield, and box key, 
and put me on a beat with just one 
order. That was to keep my feet on the 
pavement. 

Gun Fight 

"Things were a lot different then. 
The only examination you were given 
was the 100-yard run. If you didn't col- 
lapse you were in. Nearly everything 
you learned came to you by experience." 

In those days the work week was 
eight hours a day for seven days a week. 

During the years Lagomarsino came in 
for more than his share of violence. In 
1927 he was involved in a gun fight with 
two would-be robbers, and captured both 
of them. Five years later he was forced 
to critically wound a marijuana crazed 
man he attempted to question. In his 
first year on the force he was among a 
group of officers sent to quell a riot of 
the socalled Army of the Unemployed. 

Twelve Chiefs of Police 

In 1922 he and eight other officers 
were in an elevator in the Hall of Jus- 
tice when the cable snapped and the 
elevator plunged from the second floor 
to the basement. All the officers and the 
elevator operator were hurt. The next 
day there was only one member of the 
police force who was able to work. 

Lagomarsino served under 12 chiefs 
of police and was assigned to patrol the 
business section of the city during all but 
about two years of his career. 

Before becoming an officer he played 
semi-professional baseball, and was a well 
known umpire between 1912 and 1921. 
He called them at games in which Babe 
Ruth, Ty Cobb and Grover Cleveland 
Alexander played. 

He has no definite plans on how he 
will spend his retirement, but doesn't 
plan to remain idle very long.

OFFICER OF THE MONTH 



It was one of those wiml-whipped, 
sun-washed Sundays which San Fran- 
cisco saw so much of in February. Ser- 
geant Jack Chaney, of the San Francisco 
Police Uepartnient's mounted patrol, uas 



For a moment ail Chaney could see 
was a rubber boat drifting beachward, 
riding the crest of a giant comber toward 
the hard packed sand of the shore. Then, 
as the undertow sucked the fragile craft 



within the most distant line of oversized 
waves. I he officer did not wait for 
more. He headed the horse seaward and 
seconds later he and the animal were 
plunging through the first line of break- 




walking his horse along Ocean Beach, 
keeping his eye on the beat and enjoying 
the combination of sunlight and fresh 
salt air. He was not far from Fleish- 
hacker Pool when he heard the terrified 
screams of Barbara Engs and the lower 
pitched shouting of her boy friend, John 
C. Williamson. 



back to the next line of breakers, he saw 
the cause of the shouting. Williamson 
was about fifty yards out, caught for the 
moment in the trough between two 
waves as he struggled to stay afloat in 
the treacherous surf. Far beyond him, 
Chaney could see Barbara's blond head 
bobbing uncertainly in the foam just 



ers. Chaney was not thinking about the 
results of his act. He was an officer, 
sworn to protect life and property, and 
unless he moved fast at least one life was 
liable to get away from him. His be-

PROGRESS REPORT 



Condensation of progress report to 
Board of Police Commissioners from \W . 
H. Parker, Los Angeles Chief of Police, 
January 7, 1953. 

On August 9, 1950, I assumed the 
duties and responsibilities of Chief of 
Police of our city. I promised that we 
would strive for the most efficient police 
department in the city's history. Today, 
I should like to give an accounting of 
that stewardship, and to speak of things 
that lie ahead. 

It should surprise no one that the path 
has been difficult. The police toil in the 
field of human behavior, a cosmic riddle 
which mortal man has never solved. 
They not only deal with this riddle ; they 
are sometimes themselves the victims of 
it. As himian beings, they are as prone 
to fallibility as the citizenry from which 
they were selected by Civil Service. My 
responsibility has been to organize, train 
and supervise so that human weakness 
would have a minimum effect upon our 
assigned tasks. 

Although all that may some day be 

.accomplished has not been done, there is 

much gratifying progress to report. I am 

confident it will indicate the promise has 

been kept. 

Absence of Political Control 

The most important factor in police 
progress is the fact that the Department 
has remained consistently free from par- 
tisan political control. The Los Angeles 
police officer has been free to do his job 
with complete impartiality, owing re- 
sponsibility only to the people, the courts, 
and duly constituted police authority. 

Manpower 

Police manpower has been an acute 
problem. Department strength has 
dropped from 4,427 to 4,152 officers. 
This loss of 275 policemen has taken 
place while the city increased by ap- 
proximately 128,000 residents. Today, 
police strength in Los Angeles measures 
9 policemen per square mile as compared 
to 51 for New York, 34 for Chicago, 
and 32 for Philadelphia. 

Despite fewer policemen, Los Angeles 
today receives better police protection 
than at any other time in its history. 
Some ways in which this has been ac- 
complished are : 

1. Over 100 officers employed at cler- 
ical tasks have been released for field 
duty through replacement by civilian 
employees. 

2. One man patrol cars have sup- 
planted traditional two man units in cer- 
tain areas of the city. The results are 



being evaluated in order to plan further 
use of one man units. 

3. Paper work has been reduced 
through cancellation of 63 outdated re- 
port forms and redesign of 155 other 
forms, decreasing reporting, typing and 
filing time by approximately 35 per cent. 

4. A new identification system has 
drastically reduced processing time of 
prisoners into the City Jail. 




Florence Wilson 
Arcadia Police Department 

5. Improved methods of crime analy- 
sis have been adopted, giving field officers 
speedy and exact knowledge of criminal 
activity in their assigned districts. 

6. New studies of the distribution of 
crime over the city's area have enabled 
supervisors to scientifically deploy offi- 
cers for maximum results. 

Recruitment and Training 
Despite manpower shortages, high 
standards of recruitment and a 13 week 
cadet training period have been main- 
tained. 

All new officers have received emo- 
tional stability tests prior to graduation. 
The professional services of a psychia- 
trist have recently been made available 
to increase the accuracy of these exami- 
nations. 

Integrity 
An administrative division has devot- 
ed its efforts exclusively to investigat- 
ing complaints against policemen. Total 
violations involving dishonesty, abuse of 
civil rights or excessive force averaged 



only .004 per cent of Department 
strength during 1951 and 1952. 

Not even the severest critics of your 
police department have found any evi- 
dence of organized dishonesty or toler- 
ated abuse of regulatory powers. 

Crime 

The criminal operates in Los Angeles 
only at immediate and constant peril to 
his freedom. Organized crime cannot 
purchase immunity here. 

Crime rates have remained consistent- 
ly below the national average for cities 
of comparable size. The rate of major 
crime per 100,000 population during the 
fiscal years Julv, 1950 to June, 1952 to- 
talled 1008.4. This compared with 
1402.8 for the preceding five-year period. 
This represents a 22'% decrease. 

Traffic 

Despite staggering population and ve- 
hicle increases, Los Angeles has consis- 
tently rated as the safest major city in 
the nation. 

Narcotics 

Special juvenile narcotics officers have 
been trained to supplement the 29-maii 
Narcotic Division, rated as the nation's 
finest. The police department has co- 
operated with the Board of Education 
in an accelerated program of preventive 
aducation. 

Police Facilities 

A 588 acre Prisoner Rehabilitation 
Center, begun in 1952, is designed to re- 
duce per capita costs of confinement and 
provide a solution to the city's growing 
alcoholic problem (6 out of every 10 
misdemeanor arrests in Los Angeles). 

Just last month, ground was broken 
for the new Civic Center Police Facili- 
ties Building. 

Community Affairs 

I have believed it my duty to draw 
upon the experience of the police depart- 
ment in order to speak out openly upon 
vital questions of public order and safety. 
I have opposed legalized gambling and 
other measures which might promote the 
infiltration of organized crime into our 
community. I have acted decisively 
against breaches of police discipline, but 
have as quickly spoken out against mak- 
ing the policeman a "whipping boy" for 
the ills of society. I have outlined the 
dangers of too heavy reliance on an al- 
ready outmoded freeway system. 

1953 City Election 

The result of aggressive stands on ques- 
tions of public safety is a belief by some

Detective Division 



The Detective Division of the Sacra- 
mento Police Department played a ma- 
jor role last year in investigating 4,426 
major crimes, solving a good percentage 
of them and recovering $8 7, 8 7b worth 
of stolen property. 

The chief of the detective division is 
George Lofquist, who took over the divi- 
sion three years ago when Joseph E. 
Rooney was elevated to the job of assist- 
ant chief. 

Second in cnmniand in the detecti\ e 
bureau is Captain Larry Trimble. John 




(lEORHE Lofquist 

Gabrielli and John P. Keneally are the 
sergeants. Members of the major crime 
detail are Detectives A. J. Soulies. James 
L. Lyons. Otto Dahl and Donald Fox. 

Modest 

Lofquist is a modest fellow who would 
rather talk about his men than himself. 
Although he is proud of all of his men, 
during recent months two in particular 
have been singled out for particular hon- 
ors — Jack Greenlaw, head of the pawn- 
shop detail, and Carl Blasofsel, who has 
a roving assignment. 

A good percentage of the stolen prop- 
erty recovered during any given year is 
picked up due to the sharp eyes and re- 
tentive memory of Greenlaw. He has a 
record of being consistently one of the 
best crime solvers in the department, par- 
ticularly when it comes to burglaries. 
He can spot a stolen article in a pawn 
shop half a block away, the pawnbrokers 
will tell you. 

Every year he adds to his own and the 



department's reputation by cleaning up 
crimes through trailing down leads he 
finds in the pawn shops. 

Own Boss 

Blasofsel is pretty much his own boss 
in the matter of picking assignments. 
Lofquist has a good reason for wanting 
it to work just that «ay, because Carl is 
a fellow who has a particular knack for 
digging up leads on the tough ones which 
look as though they never will be solved. 
Recently, for example, the knifing mur- 
der of Marcus Ballin in Sacramento's 
tough West End was solved, particularly 
because Blasofsel kept on digging for 
months on end when the case looked 
hopeless. Penally he learned the suspect's 
first name, then his middle name, and 
eventually he identified him. A few 
weeks ago a uniformed policeman picked 
him up for not having an operator's li- 
cense. He was identified through his 
fingerprints and, when faced with the 
evidence Blasofsel had dug out, he con- 
fessed to Lofquist. 

During the last year, the detective di- 
vision is proud of having cracked one of 
the worst burglary rings seen around 
Sacramento in a long time; solving with 




Captain Tri.mbi.e 

a single arrest a series of more than ,^0 
apartment house burglaries, and quickh 
solving a hardware store breakin and 
recovering a small arsenal stolen from 
the store. Thirty-eight guns of various 
kinds were taken, and 37 were recov- 
ered. 

Supermarket Holdups 

Right now the big problem is a series 
of nightime supermarket stickups. Last 



year a quick stop was put to a similar 
series when three exconvicts were caught 
who admitted pulling eight store hold- 
ups. Now the stickups have started again 
and the division is working out some 
special plans which. Lofquist hopes, will 
put an end to the new series. 

Lofquist has been on the force for 22 
years, and has handled all kinds of im- 
portant assignments. After a short pe- 
riod as a beat patrolman, he was trans- 
ferred to the detecti\e bureau. He head- 
ed the shoplifting and check details, rlien 
moved on to the major crime squad. In 
July, 1937 he was given his captain's 
bars and he headed a uniformed platoo'i 
until he assumed his present post in 1950 
when Joseph E. Rooney was elevn*"d 
from the position of detective chief to 
Assistant Chief of Police. 



WATCH WHEELS WOBBLE 

The fact that all wheels today are 
reoKnable at the hub has not eliminated 
the danger of a wobbling wh?el du^ to 
looseness in a lug nut, warns the Na- 
tional Automobile Club. Be sure that the 
nuts are taken up to the last de'?;ree after 
a tire change, a thing that is more easily 
accomplished if the wrench is used for a 
final twist after the jack has been re- 
moved. 



APACHE TRAIL 

Apache Trail, beginning at Apache 
Junction, thirty-four miles east of Phoe- 
nix in Arizona, and winding through 
gorgeous mountain scenery to Globe, is 
reported bii' the National Automobile 
Club to have been at one time the dark 
and bloody stalking ground of the 
Apache. 



DON'T CROWD 

Don't crowd the rear end of a truck 
that you are are trying to pass, advises 
the National Automobile Club. Stay far 
enough behind it to allow >ourself 
plenty of room to pull back into line if 
the way ahead should be blocked by an 
approaching vehicle. And stay far enough 
behind to give yourself good visibilit)'. 



DON'T RACE WITH LIGHTS 

Don't race with the traffic lights, ad- 
vises the National Automobile Club. It 
is better to lose a few seconds for that 
next green light than to refuse to wait 
and then lose vour life.

STREI HEADS STATE POLICE 



Vincent J. Strei is the new chief of the 
California State Police. 

Justin G. Guild, chief of the state di- 
vision of buildings and grounds, recently 
appointed Strei, a veteran officer, to suc- 
ceed Anson H. Crutcher. Crutcher re- 
signed in mid December to become field 
representative for Paul R. Leake, the 
new member of the State Board of

Patricia Josephine Strei, a student at 
Sacramento State College. 

In his new job Crutcher, who had 
been State Police chief since 1946, will 
coordinate the Board of Equalization's 
activities in the third district 

He is a native of Williams in Colusa 
County and served as chief of police 
there from 1937 to 1942. He is a grad- 
uate of the Federal Bureau of Investiga- 
tion academy in Washington, D. C, and 
a past president of the Northern Cali- 
fornia Peace Officers Association. 



Chief Strei 

San Francisco Native 

Strei has been on the State Police force 
for 15 years, and held the rank of ser- ";' 
geant when he was promoted. He ha. 
charge of a force of 100 officers who hr.vT 
jurisdiction over state properties in S^'- j^ 
ramento, San Francisco and Los Anglic,;. 
Seventy-two of the officers are stationed 
in the Capital. 

A native of San Francisco, Strei at- 
tended schools in Oakland and is a 1924 
graduate of St. Mary's College. He u-ri"

Captain Michael J. Strazzo of the 
Sacramento Police Department, who was 
critically ill a year ago, is well along the 
road to recovery. 




Captain Strazzo 

Last Winter a good many friends of 
Strazzo, who twice was president of the 
International Footprint Association, and 
is one of Northern California's most 
widely known policemen, thought he 
never would wear his uniform again. 

Just before Christmas in 1951 he had 
a heart attack while playing golf. He 
was in the hospital for a month and a 
half and even after he was allowed to go 
home there was a serious question for 
quite a while whether he would be able 
to take up his duties again. 

But last May, after being on his back 
for more than four months, he was able 
to return to work part time. Since then 
he has gradually gotten his strength back, 
and for months now he has been back on 
the job full time. 

The news of his courageous and suc- 
cessful fight against an ailment which 
would have mowed down a man with 
less strength and fortitude is great stuff 
to Mike's numerous friends. He has 
been on the force for 22 years.

SACRAMENTO RETIREMENTS 



Fritz Kaminsky and Harry Knoll, two 
of the most widely known and respected 
officers in the Sacramento area, have gone 
on the retirement list. 

Kaminsky, who held every major job 
in the Sacramento Police Department 
during a 30-year career, was chief when 
he retired last November 1st. Knoll was 
undersheriff of Sacramento County when 
he took his pension because of ill health 
last July 1st. 

Gold Badge 

A\'hen he left the department Kamin- 
sky was presented with a gold badge by 
the members of the force, with a City 
Council resolution praising him lavishly 
for his service to the city, and with a 
fishing creel by his friends in the traffic 
violations bureau. 

The other day he walked into the vio- 
lations bureau and showed what he has 
been doing with his time — he had the 
creel filled with striped bass as a token 
of thanks to the members of the di\ ision. 

Shorthand Reporter 
The ex-chief was a shorthand reporter 
and secretary for the Southern Pacific 
Compan\- before he joined the police de- 
partment in 1922 as secretary to the 
chief. Not long afterward he took the 
police test and became an officer. 

During the following years he became 
successively property clerk, traffic chief, 
head of the juvenile division, a platoon 
captain, chief of detectives and assistant 
chief. 

In March, 1951 he became chief when 
Chief James V. Hicks was recalled to 
the air force, in which he holds a colo- 
nel's rank. He retired when Hicks re- 
turned. 

Famous Crimes 

During his long career, Kaminsky 
worked on most of the famous crimes in 
Sacramento, but probably his outstanding 
work was done in connection with the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. One 
of the earliest graduates of the FHl 
Academy in Washington, D. C, he 
worked closely with the federal authori- 
ties for years, during ^Vorld War II was 
one of the key men in California in the 
federal government's anti subversive 
work. 

Knoll also is known particularly for 
his work with the FBI. He handled all 
of the anti subversive work for the sher- 
iff's office during the war, and because 
of his wide knowledge of the county he 
was the ke\' man in handling the evacua- 
tion of the Japanese just after the war 
started. 



County Detective 

Knoll has lived in Sacramento since 
1906 and before going into law enforce- 
ment work was in the cleaning and dye- 
ing business. In 1929 he got his first 
taste of police work as county detecti\e 
under former District Attorney Neil R. 
McAllister. Six years later he left to 
join the sheriff's department. 




Chief Kaminsky 

ACT. DON'T TALK 

The California Highway Patrol has 
asked the public's help in a December 
drive to "actually reduce traffic deaths, 
not just talk about it." 

Patrol ConiHiisioner Clifford E. Peter- 
son said he hoped any public indifference 
to the traffic toll would be lessened dur- 
ing the holiday season. 

"People seem to be more responsive to 
humanitarian and sentimental appeals 
this time of year," he said, "and that's 
what we're banking on." 

Peterson declared the Patrol would 
do its part in the life saving program by 
staging traffic checks, handing out safety 
literature and stepping up enforcement 
activity. 

Last December 322 persons died in 
traffic acicdents throughout the state. 

"Just a single life saved this year will 
be worth any extra effort," Peterson said, 
adding that the toll could be materially 
reduced if every motorist and pedestrian 
would accept personal responsibility for 
his or her own safety. 



In 1943 he was named imdersherift to 
replace j. R. Ferguson, who resigned to 
become county probation officer. He was 
confined to his home for four months 
with illness before he decided to retire. 
Since then, however, his health has im- 
proved considerably and he is telling his 
friends he may take a job of some kind 
just to keep busy. 

Always on Job 

Knoll's retirement brought a comment 
from Sheriff Don Cox of which any offi- 
cer coidd be more than proud. He said 
Knoll "gave everything he had to the 
job he held" and added : 

"It was not uncommon for him to 
work 12 to 14 hours a day, seven days 
a week. He always was at his desk more 
than eight hours a day. In all the time 
Knoll served as undersheriff he took only 
13 days vacation, although he was enti- 
tled to 15 work days a year. 

"His de\otion to duty probably led to 
the illness which has brought about his 
retirement. Had he not felt it necessary 
to return to work when he was suffering 
from a virus infection he might not have 
contacted the more serious illness from 
which he has not recovered. 

"Knoll's honesty is beyond question 
and he commands the utmost respect of 
all who know him." 

As a positive step for drivers to take, 
Peterson suggested that they tighten up 
on their driving habits and obey all traffic 
laws. 

"Year after year," he said, "our rec- 
ords show that in more than nine out of 
ten cases, Californians are being killed 
and injured in traffic because someone 
violates a law." 

ANTICIPATION AND 
SAFE DRIVING 

\\'hen driving, anticipate the actions 
of the other fellow and you won't so fre- 
quently find yourself in these tight spots 
that call for catlike reactions to avoid 
disaster, advises the National Automobile 
Club. Anticipation is half the fun of a 
feast. It is also half the battle of safe 
driving. 

INDIAN BASKETRY 

The Apache Indians of New Mexico, 
according to the National Automobile 
Club, use Cottonwood, sumac, willow, 
mulberry, squawberry, and the broad 
flexible strips of the yucca plant, in the 
making of fine basketry.

Personal Identification In Early America 



In the course of the investigation, the 
suspect's fingerprints were taken by Faii- 
rot, who promptly forwarded the impres- 
sions to Scotland Yard to be searched in 
the files, since the subject was obviously 
of British extraction. In the London 
bureau, an identification was made im- 
mediately, showing the questioned indi- 
\idual to be one Henry Johnson, the 
possessor of a lengthy criminal record, 
and even then wanted for larceny in 
England, where he was known to have 
stolen a large sum before fleeing to 
America, ^\'hen confronted with proof 
of his true identity, Johnson confessed 
his current act, and was sentenced to 
serve a term of six years. 

Outstanding Case 

Nor was this the only outstanding case 
to be solved by Faurot through finger- 
prints, shortly following his introduction 
of the method. During the year 1*511, a 
local burglary was committed in which 
valuable loot was taken. Here, too, a 
logical suspect was distrusted in the per- 
son of one Henry Crispi, but this decep- 
tive trickster furnished an alibi that 
seemed unassailable; reputable citizens 
testified that Crispi had accompanied him 
to a performance at the New York 
Hippodrome, and from thence had gone 
directly home, where his wife attested to 
his having been in bed and asleep when 
the burglary was actually committed. 

But here again was Faurot destined to 
triumph. At the scene of the crime, he 
succeeded in developing certain evidential 
traces left by the instigator's guilty fin- 
gers. These he compared with the prints 
of Crispi, and found them to be identical. 
^Vhen faced with this mute but con- 
founding testimony, Crispi confessed, ex- 
plaining how he had crept from the hou"-" 
after his family was asleep, committed 
the burglary, and returned unobserved. 

First Case 

This criminal episode has often been 
presumptuously cited as "the first finger- 
print case in the United States." As a 
matter of fact, a much graver ofifense 
was the subject of the first legally- 
recorded judicial ruling on fingerprint 
evidence. However, it is likely that, co- 
incidental with the introduction of fin- 
gerprinting in America, many cases 
which did not progress to the stage of a 
trial were solved by the new method. 
This would seem inevitable in view of 
the numerous offenses and the everpres- 
ent possibility of a solution by finger- 
prints. Furthermore, it is a well-recog- 
nized fact that fingerprints reach the

courtroom on relatively few occasions, as 
compared with their innumerable in- 
volvements in criminal procedure. 1 he 
chief reason for this is that instead of re- 
quiring other factual data for substantia- 
tion, it is the fingerprint that renders all 
form of evidence conclusive. 

This circumstance is al.so readily rec- 
o':;nized by the offender, who, when 
faced with such overwhelming proof of 
his guilt, usually voices full admission of 
responsibility, and pleads for lenience, 
rather than face the prospect of a more 
drastic disposition through trial by court 
or jury. Such developments, though 
probably not uncommon even in the early 
■ annals of American fingerprint identifi- 
cation, would hardly have gained wide- 
snread recognition in every instance. 
1 bus, it would be difficult to state au- 
thoritatively just which was the "first 
fingerprint case." 

Chicago Homicide 

However, the first decision from the 
American bench, as cited above, was that 
of a homicide in Chicago, also during the 
year 1911, in which a negro, one Thomas 
Jennings, was convicted, largely on fin- 



gerprint testimony, of killing a white 
man with an axe during the perpetration 
of a burglary. His conviction and the 
admissibility of fingerprint evidence, was 
upheld in the Supreme Court of Illinois; 
this judicial ruling is generally accepted 
as the first of its kind to be handed down 
in the United States. 

Further proof of increasing conversion 
to the better system came when Major 
R. W. McCloughry also visited England 
to learn more about the Galton-Henry 
method. He, too, upon his return, spon- 
sored the use of fingerprinting in the in- 
stitution of which he was then superin- 
tendent, the Federal Prison at Fort 
Leavenworth. Fhis event was one of 
Luiusual circumstance, since it will be 
remembered that Major McCloughry is 
accredited with having introduced the 
Bertillon system in the United States in 
1887, while he was warden of the Illi- 
nois State Penitentiary. Major Mc- 
Cloughry's early awakening to finger- 
print importance is more precisely indi- 
cated by a letter to the Attorney Gen- 
eral, dated September 4, 1904, making 
formal request for authority to finger- 
print prisoners under his charge. Official 
permission was granted in an answering 
communication bearing the date Novem- 
ber 2, 1904. 

Fingerprints March Forward 

In both the civil and criminal identi- 
fication fields, fingerprints were march- 
ing forward with mighty strides. In 
1905, the Commissioner of Indian Af- 
fairs of the Department of the Interior 
adopted the practice of requiring a 
thumbprint to be furnished by each In- 
dian signator, in the preparation of writ- 
ten agreements. The custom became a 
mandatory stipulation with an authorita- 
tive circular, issued by the Interior De- 
partment in 1908, requiring that such 
thumbprints be added to all official pa- 
pers signed by Indians. 

The adoption of fingerprinting in 
1905 by the United States Army not 
only marked an epic history in the 
science, but also immediately supplied a 
long felt need in that important branch 
of government einploy. After extensive 
investigation, a board of inquiry, ap- 
pointed by the Adjutant-General, and 
composed of high ranking officers, re- 
ported favorably on the method, stress- 
ing its effectiveness and infallibility, and 
pointing out that fingerprinting would 
remove many of the army's past and cur- 
rent identification difficulties. In ever\

OCTOBER TRAFFIC TOLL 

W'itli .^72 deaths recorded ami reports 
still coming in, October now stands as 
I''52's worst month for traffic fatalities, 
the California Highwa\' Patrol said 
totla\. 

October's toll was 4b more than the 
previous high set in September when 326 
persons met death on the streets and high- 
ways. 

A breakdown of the October figures 
shows that 76 of the victims were pedes- 
trians and that rural deaths outnumbered 
urban deaths by more than 2 to 1. Of 
the 372 persons killed, 257 died in acci- 
dents occurring in unincorporated areas 
and the remaining 115 lost their lives 
within city limits. 

October's toll pushed this year's traffic 
deaths to 2,885, about 3 per cent more 
than last year at this time. In actual fig- 
ures, 89 more persons have died this year 
and 2b of them — almost one-third — met 
death in October. 

City figures on traffic injuries are in- 
complete, but a check of rural reports 
shows that more than 4000 injuries last 
month hiked 1952's record to 39,892, 
almost a 10 per cent increase over the 
first ten months of 1951. 

For the past 10 years, October, No- 
vember and December have been the 
\ear's worst months, with traffic deaths 
in December dipping below 300 on onh' 
one occasion. 

TRAFFIC CHECKS 

Patrol Commissioner Clifford T. Pe- 
terson credited traffic checks over the 
1951 Christmas holiday with substan- 
tially reducing the rural highway death 
rate from the year before. 

"Even so," he said, "8 persons were 
killed and 231 were injured in a 30 
hour period. That's too many." 

Violations frequently turning up in 
traffic checks are drunk dri\ ing, operat- 
ing an unsafe vehicle with burned-out 
lights, faulty brakes or other mechanical 
defects and driving with an invalid or 
no operator's license. 

Peterson said he realized most drivers 
are law abiding and many of them 
probabh' resent being halted. 

"Frankly, I don't blame >ou," he 
told them. "But by pulling that driuik 
driver or that car with bad brakes off 
the road, we might be preventing a fatal 
accident in which you were destined to 
be an innocent victim." 

Almost 170,000 vehicles were halted 
in traffic checks o\er the Christmas and 
New Year's holiday- last year with more 
than 3500 citations and nearly 6500 
written warnings issued.

prior instance, when the country's forces 
had engaged in conflict, many of the 
ine\itable casualties were unidentifiable. 
Furthermore, it had frequently happened 
that the identity of survivors was often 
difficult to establish, thus hampering the 
government's efforts to recompense its 
deserving veterans. 

Cost Excessive 

For many years before fingerprinting 
was available, it had been necessary to 
send representatives about the country 
seeking conclusive evidence to prove the 
identity of former soldiers claiming pen- 
sion or other indemnities. 1 he cost of 
this program was excessive, often amount- 
ing to many thousands of dollars in a 
single instance. All such perplexity was 
of course eliminated by fingerprints, their 
economic superiority being well proven 
subsequently by the fact that over three 
and one-half million First AVorld War 
veterans applying for compension were 
identified by fingerprints at an average 
cost of less than one cent each. 

It is certain that hearty appreciation 
followed the replacement of a s^'Stem 
that had long been expensive, inadequate, 
and definitely unsatisfactory, for finger- 
printing soon became a boon in the pre- 
vention of fraudulent enlistment, the ap- 
prehension of deserters, and the detection 
of false claims, as well as the insurance 
and protection of both identity and prop- 
erty for all the many persons in military 
service. With the eventuality of illness, 
accident, or death, the fingerprinting rec- 
ord stood as an incontestable voucher for 
the security of the subject and the wel- 
fare of his dependents. 

Navy Follows 

Following the Army's example, the 
executives of the United States Navy 
officially installed fingerprinting January 
1, 1907, the program eventually includ- 
ing registration both of enlisted men and 
officers. And here again is recognized 
the influence of John Kenneth Ferrier, 
since one of his students, Mrs. Mary 
Holland, who studied identification prac- 
tices also in Europe, is credited with hav- 
ing instructed United States naval lead- 
ers in fingerprinting technique. Mrs. 
Holland pioneered extensively as an in- 
structor, and brought the principles of 
fingerprint procedure to a great many 
enforcement bodies, earning the distinc- 
tive title of "the first American finger- 
print teacher." 

As with every prior general adapta- 
tion, fingerprinting at once ended many 
of the navy's troubling identification 
problems with a prompt completion. No

longer was it possible for fugitives from 
justice and other undesirables to seek ref- 
uge in government service under aliases. 
Nor coulil imposters lay claim to un- 
earned compensation, and bona fide pen- 
sioners' entitlements were promptly and 
conveniently established. Another com- 
mon form of deception was eliminated, 
that in which unscrupulous applicants 
would frequently enlist at a recruiting 
station, accept the government monies 
advanced for subsistence and transporta- 
tion to the chosen place of service at some 
distant point, and then fail to report 
there for duty. Furthermore, lost or de- 
stroyed discharge papers and other per- 
sonal government documents were read- 
il\' replaced with minimum inconvenience 
to all concerned. And as with the army, 
when battle or calamity took lethal toll, 
an honorable interment could be ac- 
corded the fallen, some of whom would 
otherwise have occupied nameless graves. 

Pathetic Episodes 

An example of the many pathetic epi- 
sodes which followed the First ^\'orld 
^Var was one in which a deluded mother, 
whose son had perished in France, was 
victimized by an imposter, belie\ed to be 
her lost boy. This essayed deception re- 
sulted in the noteworthy Frazer-Lopez 
case at Minneapolis, where fingerprints 
eventually identified the pretender as not 
Arthur Frazer, but one Arthur Lopez, 
thus sparing a bereaved parent from fur- 
ther delusion by a designing stranger. 

While de Forest, McCloughry, Fer- 
rier. Faurot, and their Eastern contem- 
poraries were pioneering in that section 
of America, the Pacific coast was also 
keeping pace. In the state prison at San 
Quentin, California, the identification 
superintendent, Frank H. De Pue, had 
started taking fingerprints of the prison- 
ers, and, in 1904, that institution boasted 
a promising file of records. DePue's 
energy and progressive spirit are indi- 
cated by the fact that his familiarity with 
the science was largely self-acquired. 

Enthusiasm Shared 
The enthusiasm which De Pue mani- 
fested was heartily shared by a number 
of his associates, one of whom was Harry 
E. Caldwell, appointed to the police force 
in Oakland, California, in 1903. Cald- 
well had studied the subject of identifi- 
cation before joining the department. At 
that time the Oakland police had an 
identification bureau, of sorts, and were 
using a photographic system patterned 
after earlier British methods, with some 
anthropometric measurements included. 
Caldwell's interest and prior research in 
the field of fingerprinting, and ballistics 
also, led to his being placed in charge of

doctrine is cleverly fashioned, lo the 
weak it promises strength; to the hungry 
it promises food ; to the sick it promises 
medicine. It is Tovvnsend i'lan, Pyra- 
mid Club, and perverted Platonism, com- 
bined with just enough intellectual half 
truths to make it palatable to all classes. 

Disguised Vision 

Our greatest error in the past was the 
underestimating of this threat. We 
thought a little good natured Fourth of 
July oratory at the right time would dis- 
pel the menace and bring the faithless 
back into the fold, tears in their eyes, 
and the Pledge of Allegiance on their 
lips. We were surprised when it did not 
work that way. ^Ve were amazed to find 
adherents to this alien philosophy en- 
camped in our churches, our schools, and 
in our government. We were shocked 
into a re-discovery that Democracy re- 
quires more than garrulity; it requires a 
constant practice of its tenets as a way 
of life. 

Communism came to these shores dis- 
guised as a vision of hope and pleasure. 
To the everlasting credit of a few Amer- 
icans, the age-old enemy in new disguise 
was recognized in time. They ripped 
away the sequined veils for us and we 
saw communism for the ancient and dis- 
eased harlot it is. 

Third Dimension 

I do not despair or fear for an Amer- 
ica alert to the dangers of these first two 
threats. We have always known how to 
meet armed aggression and we have 
learned to meet ideological aggression. 
As we approach the eve of a national 
election, whatever our political align- 
ment, we are pleased to note the major 
political parties differ only on the details 
of meeting these threats, and are in full 
agreement they must be met. 

The third dimension of the attack on 
America comes wholly from within. So 
uninformed are we with its true nature 
that to give the elemental facts known 
to every practicing policeman, is to brand 
the speaker as an alarmist. So compla- 
cent are we that to speak of it in the 
same breath with a fifth column and 
war, is to court ridicule. And so warped 
are some of our early virtues that to ac- 
tively combat it at every level, is to incur 
the displeasure of those who regard it as 
a right and the wrath of those who know 
it as a livelihood. 

Organized Crime 

Organized crime, gentlemen, unlike 
the other facets of the attack on our 
country, has not been recognized for the 
potent threat it is. Like earlier civiliza- 
tions, we build our walls high without 
attending to the moral timbers which

sustain the structure. We arm against 
barbarians without and seek their agents 
within, but calmly ignore the fact that 
self - destruction - barbarianism within — 
can accomplish our downfall more quick- 
ly than an enemy. 

To understand organized crime, it is 
necessary to know something of the 
growth of crime in America. Until the 
earl\- 1'520's, lawlessness in America was 
seldom conducted as a business operation. 
A few criminals banded together for self 
protection and profit, but theirs was 
usually a temporary association — a hit- 
-or-miss animal, with no purpose except 
that of the moment, and with little or- 
ganization and planning. 

Social Friction 

In those days, crime in the United 
States was not regarded as a major prob- 
lem. Experts viewed it, and with some 
justification, as part of the social friction 
generated during the nation's growth. 
They reasoned that crime would dimin- 
ish as America settled down and pros- 
pered. 

As so often happens with experts, they 
were wrong. They forgot to allow for 
the fact that the American criminal, 
however warped his nature, possesses the 
peculiar American genius for organizing. 
It was probably inevitable in a country 
where business became huge, complex, 
and spectacularly successful, that illegal 
business would develop along the same 
pattern. During the twenties, crime ex- 
perienced a genuine revolution. Taking 
a leaf from the book of honest merchan- 
dising, the criminal element decided to 
organize and adapt to environment in 
order to profit from the expanding mar- 
ket. They learned the value of business 
fronts and legitimate appearances. T hey 
learned the value of quiet suits, mani- 
cured fingernails, and soft voices. 1 hey 
learned the value of public relations. 
Robbery, burglary, mayhem, and murder 
could be conducted quietly and efficient- 
ly, but always as a last resort when 
threat and chicanery failed. They cre- 
ated a hierarchy with investors, boards 
of directors, supervisors, and laborers. 
And finalh'. gentlemen, they created an 
invisible government within a govern- 
ment, with its own laws, courts, and 
executioners. 

Unholy Wedge 

It takes only a single fantastic fact to 
round out this picture. Paying an an- 
nual tax of billions of dollars to this 
invisible government and faced on every 
hand with indisputable proof of its real- 
ity from victims, courts, and the police, 
— the .American public refuses to believe 
^ in its existence.

When I speak of organized crime, I 
do not refer to the pennyante hoodlum, 
the half tramp, half thief, the alley pros- 
titute, or any of the several million cheap 
criminals who are a nuisance and hazard 
on our streets. When I speak of organ- 
ized crime I speak of a tightly knit, disci- 
plined, arrogant, and worldly wise group 
who make crime pay, and pay ivell. I 
speak of an enterprise which has driven 
an unholy wedge into our ideals, dividing 
personal interest and morality into sepa- 
rate spheres: from which division flows 
a stream of gold into the coffers of the 
underworld. I speak of an immensely 
wealthy cartel which controls mayors, 
state legislators, judges; a cartel for 
whose control of vital voting blocks has 
brought candidates for high and revered 
offices, importuning and humble to its 
door. 

Not Guesswork 

Let me make it abundantly clear, gen- 
tlemen. This is not guesswork. This is 
not theory formulated for some dubious 
advantage by a Police Chief from a far 
western state ; views which may, at best, 
reflect only provincial problems. Perhaps 
a few quotations will dispel such doubts. 
First, a Democrat, the Honorable 
Estes Kefauver, whose investigation, al- 
though it merely scratched the hard ve- 
neer of organized depravity, planted at 
least a seed of doubt in the minds of 
some thinking Americans. The Senator 
had this to say : 

"A nation-wide crime syndicate does 
exist in the United States of America 
despite the protestations of a strangely 
assorted company of criminals, self- 
ser\ing politicians, plain blind fools, 
and others who may be honestly mis- 
guided that there is no such combine." 
Next, a Republican, and respected ex- 
president of this nation, the Honorable 
Herbert Hoover, had this to say: 

"The greatest danger (today) is 
not by invasion of foreign armies. Our 
dangers are that we may commit sui- 
cide from within by compliance with 
evil or by public tolerance of scanda- 
lous behavior. These evils have de- 
feated many nations many times in 
history." 

Volume of Crime 
I do not believe it is necessary to am- 
plify these statements with those of 
prominent jurists, clergymen, educators, 
respected industrialists, and respected la- 
bor heads. Leaders from every segment 
of our society have voiced similar warn- 
ings. 

My purpose here today is not to repeat 
that warning. The cry "wolf" has al- 
ready been given. Lest that cry be ig- 
nored, I propose to identify the "wolf,"

chart the direction in which it is moving, 
measure its distance from your door, and 
describe the methods of its attack. 

A good beginning is to measure the 
volume of crime in America. There are 
three and one half million known crimi- 
nals residing in our midst, a group about 
equal in size to our entire armed forces. 
This group injures us at the rate of one 
major crime every 18 seconds, a million 
and one half major crimes annually. A 
murder is committed ever> 45 minutes 
— during the last twenty-four hours, 7 
persons died violently in this manner. It 
is estimated 150,000 murderers are at 
large on our streets and another 200,000 
persons now living will murder 300,000 
persons before they die. 

Two Billion Dollars 

Ignoring for a moment the suffering 
representeti by these figures, let us assess 
the damages in dollars and cents. A con- 
servative figure on the cost of each major 
crime, taking into account injuries, prop- 
erty loss, arrest costs, court costs, and in 
event of conviction, prison costs, would 
be in the nature of a thousand dollars. 
Thus the immediate and direct cost of 
major crime would be between one and 
two billion dollars. 

The indirect cost of crime is somewhat 
higher. If you take a garment to the 
cleaner, purchase a fryer for dinner, or 
seek entertainment in the evening, a size- 
able part of the payment goes as tax to 
organized crime. Part of your rising 
insurance rates have been influenced by 
crime. The smallest part of this cost, 
and the only part which the public ap- 
pears to recognize and regret, is the cost 
of maintaining law enforcement services. 
1 his ludicrous attitude is similar to com- 
plaining about the cost of water used to 
keep a conflagration from destroying 
your home. 

Twenty Billion 

In addition to the direct and indirect 
cost of major crime, our economy is af- 
fected by dollars siphoned out of creative 
economy and into gambling. Aproxi- 
mately twenty billion dollars change 
hands annually in this manner. Is this 
important to the business man ? Are his 
profits influenced by the fact that a sig- 
nificant portion of the nation's wealth — 
twenty billion unproductive dollars — cir- 
culates outside the sphere of legitimate 
business activity? To answer this, I 
want to introduce a slogan adopted by 
the businessmen of Los Angeles. " The 
htiek that goes to the bookie does not go 
into business.'" The consumer dollar lost 
on the horses, at the crap table, into the 
slot machine, or in the poker parlor, does 
not purchase food, clothing, housing, or, 
to bring it close to home, the product of

"the automatic vending machine. Your 
industry's share of that unproductive 
twenty billion — that parasitic twenty bil- 
lion — that lost twenty billion, might 
well mean profit or bankruptcy in lean 
years ahead. 

These billions have not only made or- 
ganized crime wealthy and powerful, but 
open the way to expansion of the under- 
world empire through legitimate and 
quasi legitimate investments. The iden- 
tity of the organizations which make up 
this empire are known. 

Mafia 

The most ominous of all criminal car- 
tels is a group known as the Mafia. 
While some may doubt that the Mafia 
that had its roots in Sicily is the same or- 
ganization that exists in America today, 
no authority will question the existence 
of a Mafia type organization of tremen- 
dous proportions, and the end result is 
the same. The Mafia is marked by an 
ancient code that binds all of its mem- 
bers to the following tenets: 

( 1 ) Reciprocal aid in case of any 
need whatsoever. 

(2) Absolute obedience to the 
Chief. 

(3) An offense received by one of 
the members must be considered an 
offense to the entire organization, and 
must be avenged at any cost. 

(4) Never recur to the state's au- 
thorities for justice. 

(5) Never reveal the names of 
members of the organization. 

Only the Dead 

The early password of the Mafia be- 
speaks its character: E riiortc solo non 
rcturncro; e dcmenticnto rcturncro," 
which means "only the dead do not re- 
turn; he who has forgotten will return." 
The purpose of the password is to fully 
impress upon the members of the Mafia 
that the penalty for the failure to remain 
sil"nt is death. 

It is difficult to believe the Mafia ex- 
ists. Even to a policeman who knows its 
members, traces of its activities, and in- 
vestigates its murders, there is something 
unreal about an ancient code of "silence 
or death" existing in the twentieth cen- 
tury. \et it does exist, and its inner 
crcle of members do control organized 
crime in America ! 

The interests of the Mafia are varied. 
It is active in gambling and wire serv- 
ices, narcotics, counterfeiting, white slav- 
ery, and slot machine rackets. Its semi- 
legitimate interests include produce dis- 
tribution, the olive oil industry, the to- 
mato paste industry, breweries, distillers, 
night clubs, hotels, and again closer to 
home, vending machine supply and serv- 
ice. This is only a partial list. In one

city, it may control laundry service, in 
another transportation, in another union 
acti\itics, and in still another onh' the 
political offices necessary to allow open 
\ ice activities. In \ iew of the growing 
narcotic menace, it is interesting to know 
the Mafia plays an important part in the 
illegal narcotic trade. 

Legitimate Enterprise 

In recent \ears, organized crime, 
through this organization has moved in- 
creasingly into the field of legitimate 
business enterprise. The coin machine 
industry is one of their targets. They 
plan to take over supply and service, dis- 
tribution, and ultimately, manufactur- 
ing. They plan this because the coin 
machine industry is considered ideal for 
their needs. They have available intimi- 
dation and strong arm experts so success- 
ful in persuading small proprietors of the 
advantages of one machine over another. 
Existing punch board, horse race infor- 
mation, and bookie chains can be counted 
upon to supply new customers and con- 
trol old ones. 

You have informed me of your inter- 
est in preventing such an eventuality. 
On this score, let us be frank. A legiti- 
mate operator, limited to operation with- 
in the law, alone cannot compete with 
the criminal. If his machines are 
wrecked, his only recourse is civil suit or 
criminal complaint. Both are lengthy 
processes dependent upon proof, which 
may be an illusive thing if the city is 
inefficiently policed. If employees are 
strong armed, he can only hire and train 
new employees — if he can find men will- 
ing to face injury or death for a modest 
salary. If his own life, or the life of his 
loved ones, is threatened, he can complain 
to the police — and trust those lives to a 
guard who may prove incompetent. And, 
finally if the businessman elects to fight 
fire with fire, employ weapons, thugs, 
intimidation — he will find himself in a 
strange field, unacquainted with the 
tricks of the new trade, and he himself 
may be the one whom the law punishes 
while the criminal is left free to take 
over the business without resistance. 

Leading Citizens 

Professional considerations do not al- 
low me TO list all the Mafia and under- 
world leaders. In many cases Mafia lead- 
ers and their associates assume the role 
of leading citizens, contributors to 
worthy charities, and solid men of afifairs. 
Their real identity would come as a 
crude shock to many of the civic leaders 
of the communities in which they reside. 
I he Mafia is nationwide in its scope, 
and its tentacles reach into cities and 
towns throughout the length and breadth 
of America.

\Vith the exception of the Grand 
Council, the Mafia is in the nature of a 
loose federation. Common interest has 
long since placed a ban on gangland war- 
fare and the federation, based on unwrit- 
ten agreements, grows stronger each 
year. Warfare has been replaced with 
execution under the unwritten laws of 
this invisible government. 

Two Murders 

May I cite to you two timely in- 
stances of this cooperation which oc- 
curred on the Pacific Coast. During th? 
investigation of two murders in the City 
of Los Angeles, we obtained information 
which had caused us to conclude that 
these murders were Mafia executions. 
We believe that the decree of death was 
handed down by a Mafia court that con- 
vened in the Midwest. The Mafia court 
is unique in that the defendant does not 
appear before the court and is not rep- 
resented by counsel. There is no pro- 
vision for bail, writs of habeas corpus, or 
appeal. After the court rendered its de- 
cision in this particular case, a member 
of the Mafia was summoned from the 
Pacific Coast to another \Vestern city 
where he received instructions to put 
into effect the order of the court. His 
task was to arrange the details of the 
execution. Upon his return to our area, 
he consulted with the local head of the 
Mafia, and shortly thereafter, in a bi- 
zarre but perfectly planned and executed 
plot, two men met their death in expia- 
tion for the crime of having violated the 
code of the Mafia. As the investigation 
progressed, it was definitely established 
that the widow of one of the deceased 
was withholding information from the 
police and misrepresenting facts within 
her knowledge. When confronted with 
this accusation, she in effect invoked the 
age old tenet of the Mafia code that its 
members never seek or accept the aid of 
lawfully constituted authorities even 
though they themselves may be the vic- 
time of a crime. 

Narcotic Peddler 

A second case which remains unsolved 
involves a narcotic peddler who was ar- 
rested while transporting narcotics and 
who consented to appear as a witness in 
a federal court and testify against his 
superiors. Before the trial court could 
convene, this narcotic peddler was found 
stretched out in death in another city 
and the bullet hole in his head bore mute 
evidence that the code of the Mafia had 
once more been invoked. 

Daily Growth 

The menace of crime is found not so 
much in the fact it exists, as in the fact 
it daily grows in size and power. Crime 
statistics, although they reflect continued

and alarming increases in certain cate- 
gories of major crime, do not give an ac- 
curate reading tor two reasons: 

L Crime statistics are based on of- 
tenses known to the police. This 
knowledge embraces those crimes 
which are either observed by the po- 
lice or reported to the police. Many 
times, through carelessness in minor 
cases, or fear of reprisals in major 
cases, crimes are not reported. 

2. The movement of organized 
crime into quasi legitimate opera- 
tions has created a vast twilight zone 
of criminality which never leaves an 
imprint upon a police blotter. 

Blackmail 

One of the most lucrative sources of 
income to the lesser minions of the un- 
derworld is the crime of blackmail. 
1 hese criminals have become e.xpert in 
creating an aura of fear in the minds of 
persons who have exhibited human fraili- 
ties and who pay continuous tribute to 
prevent exposure. Even though the po- 
lice may be aware of these situations, the 
victim of the crime will rarely reveal his 
predicament. Comparative criminal sta- 
tistics for the nation as a whole are based 
on the reports contributed to the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation by the local law 
enforcement agencies. Inaccuracies in 
such reporting destroy the validity of 
these statistics as is evidenced by the fact 
that one of the large cities in the nation 
does not contribute to this pool of crime 
data as their reports are considered in- 
accurate, and are not acceptable to the 
Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

Furthermore, the entire gamut of 
criminal justice affords innumerable op- 
portunities for the guilty to escape pun- 
ishment. Individual criminal records re- 
flect relatively short terms for those 
convicted of serious crimes. As our peni- 
tentiaries become overcrowded, there is 
compelling necessity for the premature 
release of inmates in order to accommo- 
date constant influx. All of this, of 
course, is discouraging to the conscien- 
tious police officer as he represents you 
in the war against the criminal element. 
It is extremely frustrating to professional 
law enforcement, after a diligent investi- 
gation and prosecution, to witness the 
criminal either escape punishment or ob- 
tain early release because of connections. 

Twentj' Percent Increase 

In a recent study in the trends of 
three selected crimes — robbery, burglar) , 
and auto theft — and using the data re- 
ported to the FBI by 10 of the largest 
cities in America, we determined that 
since 1940 these cities experienced a

20% increase in these three felony of- 
fenses. 

Today, crime is on the march in Amer- 
ica, and the tide nuist be stemmed if we 
are to survive as a free people. As this 
point, I would like to pause and pay per- 
sonal tribute to a resident of Chicago, 
Mr. Virgil W. Peterson, Operating Di- 
rector of the Chicago Crime Commis- 
sion. In his recently published book, 
"Barbarians in Our Midst," he spells 
out an erudite recitation of the alliance 
of politics, crime, and vice, and I com- 
mend it to you. 

Solutions 

This is probably a good point to begin 
a discussion of solutions. In seeking solu- 
tions. In seeking answers, there is always 
a temptation to discuss public morality. 
Full and abiding adherence by responsi- 
ble citizens to accepted principles of mor- 
ality, as laid down in the scriptures, 
would vanquish the problem overnight. 
Such a return to our early strengths and 
virtues would be the happiest and quick- 
est solution. However, it is a fact, we 
have become a confused nation, and the 
path back is as difficult as the course 
ahead. Many confuse morality with le- 
gality, ^lany have accepted double 
standards, adjustable to private and busi- 
ness life. Many view morality as a philo- 
sophical enigma and pride themselves as 
being "practical" men, convinced that 
"good" and "gold" and "God" are 
spelled in the same manner. 

Another temptation also occurs. It is 
the temptation to find a scapegoat — a po- 
litical party preferably — upon which to 
blame the whole problem. To most of 
us here, this temptation is nearly over- 
powering. However, despite our inclina- 
tions, we must be practical by realizing 
solutions are not found in scapegoats. 
1 he "mess," as it has been described, is 
not confined to one political philosophy, 
any one place, or any one level of gov- 
ernment. 

Professional Level 

It has been repeatedly stated that law 
enforcement is primarily a local respon- 
sibility. It has been pointed out that 
even though criminals may be organized 
on a nationwide basis, the majority of 
their criminal acts involve violation of 
local laws. Therefore, it is the local po- 
lice that must be depended upon to com- 
bat the criminal activities of crime syn- 
dicates. As we accept this premise, it 
must be concluded that between the law- 
abiding elements of society and the crim- 
inals that prey upon them stands a thin 
blue line of defense — your police officer. 
It is upon this group that we must de- 
pend to defeat the invasion from within. 
If the battle is to be won, it is impera- 
tive that local police agencies operate on

a truly professional level. By the wonl 
professional, I mean honest, ethical, coni- 
[letent police service, conipleteh free of 
political manipulation ami control. We 
ha\e enjo\e(l the type of culture in the 
Cit\ of Los Angeles for the past several 
years that has enabled us to act as a lab- 
oratory in testing the formula. Our offi- 
cers perform their daily tasks without 
regard to classes of persons, secure in the 
realization that the only demand upon 
them is the proper performance of their 
duty. The business leaders of our com- 
munity have long since realized counte- 
nanced vice is not necessarily an integral 
part of a large American city. As I re- 
marked earlier, they realize "the buck 
that goes to the bookie," or any other 
criminal activity, does not go to business. 
Thus, we have their full support in the 
suppression of gambling, prostitution, 
and the other facets of organized crime. 

White Spot 
The result has been nothing less than 
spectacular. Today, Los Angeles is re- 
ferred to by authorities as the nation's 
"white spot " in the black picture of na- 
tionally organized crime. Let me cite 
some statistics which may indicate what 
professional law enforcement can accom- 
plish. ^Vhile the 10 major cities report- 
ing to the FBI were experiencing a 20 '^r 
increase in robberies, burglaries, and 
auto thefts since 1940, these crimes have 
actually decreased 2'~f in the City of Los 
Angeles during that same period, and 
this decrease has been achieved in spite 
of the phenomenal growth in population 
with all of the social dislocations that are 
attendant thereto. Since 1945, a period 
in which the police there consolidated 
professional gains, these selected crime 
totals in Los Angeles decreased 37% 
while the ten major cities experienced a 
9 per cent increase. Finally, taking into 
account increases in population, these 
crimes per 100,000 residents in Los An- 
geles have been reduced since 1945 by 
the astonishing total of 46 per cent. 

Intelligence Division 

Moreover, the twilight zone of quasi 
legitimate crime is not tolerated in Los 
Angeles. Recently, a Pacific Coast rep- 
resentative of a national vending ma- 
chine company — who is here today — was 
contacted by Mafia representatives from 
the Ohio Valley. These criminals had 
organized a California corporation and 
established an office in a city to the south 
of us. This Pacific Coast representative 
was instructed to meet these men at a 
certain time, in a certain room, of a cer- 
tain hotel. When he demurred on the 
basis he was accustomed to doing busi- 
ness in his office, he was told in no un- 
certain terms to carry out his instruc- 
tions, and that it was their intention to

purchase cigarette \'ending machines. 
Shortly thereafter, the appointment was 
cancelled without explanation. When he 
called these facts to my attention, I was 
able to give him a complete explanation 
as to the reason for the cancellation of 
the appointment. The answer lay in the 
operation of our Intelligence Division, 
which is charged with the single respon- 
sibility of combatting organized crime. 
Jack Lait, in referring to our Intelli- 
gence Division in his newspaper column, 
stated: "I have found only one local set- 
up that recognizes the peril of this situa- 
tion. In Los Angeles is the sole police 
agency designed to combat the Mafia 
and its collateral mobster combinations. 
It has a full blown intelligence squad 
which has concentrated on this field for 
years, and has compiled a file second 
only to the FBI." Through expert oper- 
ation, members of our Intelligence Divi- 
sion uncovered the entire plot on the part 
of these hoodlums to invade the auto- 
matic vending machine industry in our 
area. Subsequent action on the part of 
our officers discouraged these predatory 
migrants from pursuing their original 
objectives. 

Achilles Heel 

I bring these facts to you, not to seek 
praise for our department, but to show 
that the crime picture need not be dis- 
couraging. The gangland menace has an 
"Achilles Heel" and every discerning bus- 
inessman and policeman is aware of it. 
Organized crime cannot operate In the 
face of determined and honest local law 
enforcement. 

If organized crime continues to oper- 
ate in your city, it does so because some- 
one locally profits from its existence. 
This is not to indict the administration 
of the city or the police department. It 
is a fact that the average policeman and 
police administrator is honest, alert, and 
devoted to your welfare. He cannot be 
blamed if he is forced to operate under 
archaic regulations, political pressure, 
and public apathy. The very fact that 
competent and honest policemen remain 
on the job in the face of those obstacles 
is prima facie proof of their deep loyalty 
to you, a loyalty that could be shaped by 
you into a potent weapon against these 
enemies within. 

However, from a quarter century of 
police service under administrations cor- 
rupt and honest, weak and strong, fool- 
ish and wise, I say to you — if organized 
crime exists in your city, somewhere a 
weakling, a fool, and a despicable traitor 
is betraying you as surely as if he were 
selling the key to our armed defenses.

Political Control 

The first step then, in the battle 
against organized crime, is the freeing of 
the police from political control. Fol- 
lowing this, the next moves are logical 
ami need little amplification to business- 
men who deal ever\' day with problems 
of administration, personnel, budgeting, 
planning, and other organizational fun- 
damentals. High-standard recruiting 
must be adopted. Rotten wood or dead 
wood must be eliminated. High qualit\ 
training must be instituted. Adequate 
salaries must be initiated to attract and 
hold the qualit\- of men needed. 

\Vhy are internal police affairs of con- 
cern to businessmen? There are three 
ver\' good reasons: 

1. I invite this interest because you 
hope to remain in business and escape 
control by criminal combines. Law 
enforcement is a "thin blue line" 
which stands between you and the or- 
ganized forces of crime. Therefore, 
your interest in this bulwark cannot 
be an abstract interest — it is an ex- 
treinely practical matter afifecting you 
and your family's personal future, 
and, as patriots, the future of your 
nation. 

2. I invite your interest in police 
affairs because organization and ad- 
ministration is "right down your al- 
ley. " If you operate at a profit, you 
are demonstrating practical knowl- 
edge of organizational techniques. 
The same techniques apply to a police 
department. If the businessmen of a 
community cannot see and correct the 
faults in the local police structure, 
then no one can — the cause is lost. 

3. I invite your interest in local 
law enforcement because your busi- 
ness will prosper if it is effective, or 
it will suffer if enforcement remains 
weak. Whether you like it or not you 
have a sizeable financial investment in 
the political and social health of your 
community. It is nothing more than 
sound fiscal policy to look to affairs 
affecting the soundness of that invest- 
ment. 

Second Step 

The second step in the battle against 
organized crime will take a little more 
doing. As you have seen, the criminal 
combines operate on a national scale. 
Local police agencies can be effective 
against them, but only upon the expendi- 
ture of great effort and sums of money. 

To protect Los Angeles from this 
menace, the Los Angeles Police Depart- 
ment has found it necessary to know 
more about mobsters in other cities of 
the nation than you know about your 
own business associates. We maintain

Not Local Responsibility 

/ contend this natiomviJc study of 
criminal syndicates is not justifiahly a 
local responsibility , but belon^^s on the 
federal level. I am certain the founders 
of our nation did not foresee a day wheii 
citizens, criminal and lawful alike, could 
span the continent in a few hours and 
travel from city to city in a few minutes. 
A major factor in the spread of crime is 
the fact there is in e.\istence no federal 
agency supplying intelligence on syndi- 
cated crime to local law enforcement 
agencies. Congressional crime commit- 
tees, however useful they may be ot Con- 
gress, do not fill the need of the local 
police. The need today is a permanent 
agency of the federal government dedi- 
cated to the continuous study of syndi- 
cated crime in America, and charged 
with the responsibility of supplying to 
local law enforcement information con- 
cerning the identity of members of crimi- 
nal organizations and their methods of 
operation. Otherwise, local law enforce- 
ment is not equipped with the necessary 
information to protect your communit\'. 

Previous Recommendation 
This recommendation on our part is 
not new. A similar recommendation was 
made to the Kefauver Committee on 
November 16, 1950 when, accompanied 
bv the head of our Intelligence Division, 
Captain Hamilton, I appeared before the 
committee in executive session. In his 
report to the press following this session. 
Senator Kefauver stated : "The Chief 
and Captain Hamilton stressed the neces- 
sity of authorizing some federal agency 
or creating some federal agency for the 
purpose of disseminating information 
about organized criminals and crime to 
the local enforcement officers." 

For the past two years, the American 
Bar Association has conducted an exten- 
sive study of syndicated crime in Amer- 
ica through its Commission on Organ- 
ized Crime. Sometime ago, this Com- 
mission requested recommendations from 
Mayor Bowron of Los Angeles. In his 
reply. Mayor Bowron reiterated the 
recommendation that we had previoush' 
made to the Kefauver Committee. The 
American Bar Association's Commission 
on Organized Crime is submitting a re- 
port to its national convention in San 
Francisco, California, this week. In line 
with Mayor Bowron 's recommendation, 
that report states as follows: "Nowhere 
is the need for federal action to assist 
local law enforcement stressed more ur- 
gently than in the field of collecting.

coordinatiiifj, and (lisseminatiiifr intornia- 
tion about ()r)jaiiize<i crime." 

Third Step 

1 he third step toward controlling syn- 
dicated crime demands a critical evalua- 
tion of our system of laws. The voice of 
the criminal, the communist, and the 
self-appointed tiefender of civil liberties 
constantly cries out for more and more 
restriction upon police authority. At the 
present time, I am the defendant in a 
civil action designed to test my legal 
authority to use the dictograph in obtain- 
ing evidence in criminal cases, despite 
the fact that there is not one shred of 
evidence that this authority has been 
abused, and despite the fact that, 
through the use of the dictograph, many 
\icious criminals have been brought to 
the bar of justice that otherwise would 
have escaped detection. It is a fact that 
much of the nefarious business of the 
underworld is transacted through the 
medium of the \ast intracontinental sys- 
tem of telephonic communication. Nev- 
ertheless, the police are generally pre- 
cluded from "listening in" under pain 
of criminal prosecution. The Magna 
Carta was extracted from King John 
on the plains of Runnymede in 1215. 
I here were no telephones at that time, 
and do you believe it was the intention 
of the founders of libert\- that in con- 
temporary times we should provide to 
the criminals who would destroy us a 
\ alu Ri\er sanctuary of telephonic com- 
munication ? I do not. Every attempt 
we make to avail ourselves to technologi- 
cal advancement in combatting crime is 
challenged again and again. The free- 
dom of action of the individual must 
constantly be restricted in the interest of 
the welfare of society as a whole. An 
exaggeration of individual freedom can 
lead to the destruction of the freedom 
of all. The police inust meticulously obey 
the law while the criminal flaunts all 
rules of order. A heavilv shackled polic 
is little match for a well organized and 
extensive underworld. 

Final Step 

V\\e finiil stcf in the control of syn- 
dicated crime would be a full recognition 
of its threat by the parties who formulate 
the nation's policies. I do not believe 
that either major political party has fully 
recognized the threat of organized crime 
to the vitals of American freedom. Both 
parties give every evidence of an alert- 
ness to our peril from the Soviet and 
from the Communist Fifth Column. But 
I have not perceived a firm grasp of the 
fact that our national life is dependent 
upon order, and that order is dependent 
upon the impartial enforcement of our 
laws. There must be a common appre- 
ciation that our nation and its defenses

rest on virtue and morality, not in 
Washington alone, but in every city and 
hamlet across this land. 

It has been a pleasure as well as an 
honor to be invited here today to address 
you. I trust you will not view these re- 
marks as just a tirade by a policeman 
against the enemies of society. We need 
not be philosophers or historians to see a 
menace and to squarely face it. You have 
seen how crime can engulf a nation and 
destroy its freedom ; how it is conceiv- 
able the underworld has risen and may 
rise further in positions of political in- 
fluence to where important officeholders 
will be mere puppets, executing the will 
of their criminal overlords. We expend 
vast resources in fighting foreign enemies. 
Let us not be blind to the internal dan- 
gers which can destroy us as quickly and 
as certainly. The day has come when, in 
the preservation of our freedom, the law 
abiding people of this nation and the 
police who serve them must join hands 
together in a relentless war upon the in- 
vasion from within. 

It is the patriotic thing to do, and in 
closing let me leave with you my defini- 
tion of patriotism. True patriotism is an 
abiding conviction in the heart and mind 
of man that, to the nation that nurtured 
him, he owes an eternal debt of grati- 
tude, and, in the payment of that debt, 
he will do anything that is necessary even 
though it be that he shall lav down his 
life.

MIDNIGHT MANHUNT 

(('.(inlinued from page 5) 

Streets, the scene of the Irish robbery, 
the (kio moved east and south toward 
fashionable Nob Hill. 

As the bandit car roared eastward. 
Chief of l^olice Daniel J. O'Brien was 
in the act of saying goodbve to a ^roup 
of friends with whom he had just had 
dinner in the swank Fairmont Hotel. 
With Detective Sergeant James Neely 
he starred across the street toward his 
car. A twin explosion sounded a short 
distance away. 

O'Brien paused tensely. "That was 
gunfire, " he told Neely. 

As he spoke a blue sedan careened over 
the crest of the hill and bore down on 
the chief and his driver at breakneck 
speed. As one man the Chief and Neeh 
drew their service revolvers and signaled 
the car to stop. 

The defiant roar of two guns was their 
replv as the speeding bandits sent heavy 
caliber bullets crashing past the two po- 
licemen into the Chief's car. 

While Chief O'Brien sent bullet after 
bullet winging after the fleeing bandits, 
Neely started the big car and, with the 
city's ranking police officer at his side, 
sent it hurtling down the steep Powell 
Street hill on the trail of the blue sedan. 
They were never able to lessen the fugi- 
tives' lead, however, and after a wild 
chase lost them in a sudden flurr\ of 
traffic. 

Angril}' the Chief stopped at the near- 
est call box. Captain of Detectives Dun- 
can Mathesen, who had been called by 
Heal\- to take charge of the case, an- 
swered. 

"Two pvniks just took a shot at me on 
Powell Street," the indignant Chief re- 
ported. "rhe\' were in a blue sedan, 
license number 766-954 I want every 
man in the department to be on the look- 
out for that car Get those men before 
they kill somebody." 

"They already have. Chief," Alathe- 
sen reported. "Those shots you heard 
killed a man !" 

l^ack at the corner of Clay and Pow- 
ell, police photographers were taking pic- 
tures of the remains of Mario Pagano, 
an elderly Italian. 

"He didn't do anything, " a witness 
told Detective McGreevy, who had re- 
sponded to the call. "He was just cross- 
ing the street when those guys came up 
Cla\' Street and took the corner on two 
wheels. The\' missed the old man by the 
skin of his teeth. Of course he was sore. 

"He waved his umbrella at them and 
swore a little in Italian. They stopped. 
They didn't say a word. Just pulled 
their guns and let him have it. Both at

the same time. He never had a chance. 
"Heforc anybody could move they had 
started again and were racing up Powell 
Street. 

"I caught the license number. It was 
766-954." 

At police headquarters Captain IVIath- 
esen outlined the night's activities to 
Chief O'Brien, starting with the Bia- 
ginni murder and ending with the sense- 
less slaying of Pagano. ^Vhile he was 
speaking a telephone call was received 
from Northern station. 

"We've got the blue sedan ! It was 
abandoned on Haight Street between 
Octavia and Laguna." 

Chief O'Brien swung into action "Get 
Dullea up to that car," he ordered "He 
night find something valuable. In the 
meantime we're going to go over this city 
with a fine tooth comb. Divide the dis- 
tricts into zones. Pick up every suspicious 
character. Don't miss a trick or a place. 
If we don't get these killers two murders 
will be a drop in the bucket." 

Physicians and surgeons were warned 
to watch for a wounded man when Dul- 
lea, examining the blue sedan, found 
blood on the right door and floor of the 
car. 

"One of them was hit," he reported. 
"He'll need medical attention." 

A careful search of the car revealed 
several bullet holes, a few fingerprints, 
all too smudged to be of any use, and 
Dr. Jacobs' watch and wallet on the rear 
seat. 

By the time the blue sedan was recov- 
ered morning newspapers had been in- 
formed of the crime orgy and were hit- 
ting the streets with extras telling of 
what they referred to as the "Terror 
Bandits." American Legion posts of- 
fered assistance to Chief O'Brien and 
many private citizens appeared at the 
Hall of Justice on the morning of Oc- 
tober 10, offering assistance. By noon 
scenes resembling the old days of the 
vigilantes were reenacted in San Fran- 
cisco, with citizens' committees being 
formed to help police combat the bandit 
duo. 

Although dozens of suspicious charac- 
ters were rounded up and questioned, and 
the search penetrated into every imagin- 
able corner of the city, Sunday's search 
revealed nothing. That evening the 
streets were cleared while the city waited 
apprehensively for the bandits to strike 
again. Contrary to expectations, how- 
ever, the police department enjoyed a 
Muiet evening. Crime was limited to 
||if petty theft. By Monday, October 11, the 
Bcitv relaxed a little, although the police, 
ed by O'Brien, Mathesen, Dullea, and 
iMcDonald, pressed their search vigor- 
lously.

At 6 p.m. Monday an e.xcited cab 
ilriser called the detecti\e bureau. "I just 
refuseil a ride to two men at 29th and 
Mission Streets. Another driver, Walter 
Svvanson, picked them up. One of them 
answered the description of the black 
haired "Terror Bandit." 

\\liile Mission station police ques- 
tioneil the cab driver, Walter Samson 
drove his fares along I6th Street into 
the unlighted gloom of the Southern Pa- 
cific railroad yards and over the viaduct 
that crosses the tracks. The two young 
men ordered him to stop on the other 
side. 

"W'e've got a bottle here, how about 
a drink?" one of them otiered. 

Swanson got out of the cab and came 
around to the rear. His job as a cab 
driver was an avocation. He had sold 
insurance all day and was tired. One of 
the men was holding a Hask temptingly. 
He opened the door. 

"Put up your hands and keep quiet!" 

The flask was replaced by a heavy cali- 
ber re\ohcr. 1 he friendly fare was 
snarling orders. Violence and hate were 
mirrored in his features. His voice was 
like the growl of a mad dog. 

"Get over there." He indicated the 
deep shadows at the edge of the viaduct. 
Swanson followed his orders implicith'. 
1 00 late he recognized the black haired 
young man the newspapers had described 
as one of the Terror Bandits. It was his 
companion who had fooled him. One of 
the Terror Bandits had been described as 
heavy boned with close set eyes. This 
man's companion was slim, with delicate 
Latin features. 

1 he cab driver stood in frozen silence 
while the gunman's young companion re- 
moved his cap and badge. Waiting for 
him at home were his wife and eight 
weeks old son. He was aware that his 
life was more important to them than the 
few dollars these men might get. The 
black haired man was lifting his gun. 

Swanson steeled himself for the blow 
in the face he was sure would come, re- 
membering the pattern set by the fiendish 
crimes of the preceding Saturday night. 

Flame leaped from the muzzle of the 
revolver and blood gushed from the cab 
driver's face. He was dead before he hit 
the pavement. 

J he black haired bandit motioned to 
his younger companion. 

"Put on that hat. Now we'll really go 
to work. " 

The two yoving men entered the cab 
and sped away, leaving Swanson's body 
alone in the darkness behind them. A 
few blocks away they pulled up beside 
Michael Petrovich as he walked along

Mariposa Street toward his home on San 
Bruno Avenue. 

"Have you got the time?" 

Petrovich fumbled for his watch. 'Ihe 
chain caught in a belt loop and he paused 
to untangle it. The heavy crash of the 
revolver ended his attempt. Michael 
Petrovich never had time to realize he 
had encountered the "Terror Bandits." 
Horrified onlookers called police while 
the cab disappeared down Mariposa 
Street. 

Captain Mathesen himself took the 
report of Petrovich's murder. He dis- 
patched Detectives McGreevy, Dorman, 
George Page, and Frank Jackson to the 
scene. The four policemen, all armed 
with shotguns, converged on the scene 
simultaneously from four directions, but 
the killers eluded their trap. The found 
a terrified crowd gathered around the 
slain man's body. 

"What happened?" 

"I can't figure it out," a witness an- 
swered. "They asked him what time it 
was. Then they shot him. He never 
even got his watc'-i out." 

"They said he was too slow," a second 
witness added. 

Back at headquarters Captain Mathe- 
sen was talking to an agitated motorist 
on the telephone. 

"I was driving along Sixteenth Street 
by the viaduct," the man said, "when my 
lights picked out something lying near 
the street. ^Vhen I iiwestigated it turned 
out to be a man's body. Somebody shot 
him in the face." 

Mathesen called Potrero station and 
detailed Officer Harry Doyle to stand 
guard over the dead cab driver's body. 
Then he called Chief O'Brien. 

"They're out again," he informed him. 
"Two men are dead already." 

'The Chief hurried downtown to take 
charge of the man hunt himself. Every 
available officer was called back to duty. 
But while hundreds of policemen pa- 
trolled the streets in their own cars or 
those donated by private citizens the ban- 
dits struck repeatedly and with the same 
maddening inconsistency as before. 

They stopped at Frank Mana's soft 
drink parlor at 17th and Mississippi 
Streets, asked him to change a $20 bill, 
then held him up. At a Seventh and 
Brannan Street restaurant they held up 
Louis Ferrando, the cook. Ferrando, see- 
ing the gun, laughed. 

"You're kidding." 

By the time he discovered they were 
not kidding he had received a bullet 
through the neck and was lying helplessly 
on the floor while the younger of the two 
gunmen rifled the cash register. 

Half a block away the killers drove 
into a service station operated by C. AV.

[ohnsDii and parked by the gasoline 
pimip>. Johnson left the warmth of his 
oil stove and approached the car. He was 
greeted by the muzzle of a revolver. 

Johnson grinned. "I remember >ou. 
Voii shouldn't joke like that." 

"If you think it's a joke just try to do 
something about it," the gunman an- 
swered. "Get back into that office." 

With the menacing muzzle of the gun 
prodding his ribs Johnson backed into the 
office. Inside two other men. Jack Duane, 
night watchman who had stopped by to 
purchase a flashlight battery, and Rex 
Hayden, a friend who had dropped by 
for a chat, stood by the oil stove. Ihe 
buck toothed gunman motioned for them 
to raise their hands. 

"Get the money," the older bandit 
nodded at his young companion. I he 
\outh scurried into the room and emptied 
the cash register. He returned to his seat 
in the cab. 

A shot resounded against the walls of 
the tiny room. Senselessly the older gun- 
man had fired directly into Johnson's 
face. The attendant felt a bullet burn 
through his throat. 

"Stop it, you fool !" Realizing there 
was little chance that the bandit would 
stop shooting, Hayden charged forward 
in a desperate attempt to end the bar- 
rage. With his head scarcely an inch 
away from the blazing gun, a second shot 
was fired. The bullet seared through 
Hayden's hat and plowed a furrow across 
the top of his head. He fell to the 
ground screaming. 

Duane reached toward his own gmi 
and drew desperately. He never got well 
started. Before the revolver was half 
out of the holster a bullet had coursed 
through his brain and killed him. He 
was dead when he crumpled to the floor. 
The bandit turned his gun back on Hay- 
den, who lay writhing on the floor be- 
neath him. He squeezed the trigger once 
more and the bullet crashed through the 
prostrate man's elbow. With a final 
glance at the devastation he had wrought 
the bandit entered the cab and disap- 
peared into the night. 

Downtown Chief O'Brien appeared at 
the leading radio stations. After a brief 
conference with the executives he cut in 
on each wave length. Startled radio fans 
heard a rare broadcast that night. 

"All San Francisco police officers who 
are listening to this program report to 
their stations. An emergency has devel- 
oped. This is Chief of Police O'Brien 
speaking." 

Once again \olunteer help flooded the 
police department. Colonel Bolles, com- 
manding officer at the Presidio, called 
and told O'Brien that the Thirtieth In-

t'aiiti y vvas at his disposal to use in what- 
ever manner he chose in trapping the ter- 
ror bandits. He also loaned the city a 
truckload of shotguns and ammunition. 
Hundreds of citizens donated their cars 
to the search and soon all of the San 
Francisco police department was on 
wheels. The American Legion turned 
out en masse. Soon a well organized 
force of 2,000 men augmented the police 
department. 

Lieutenant Dullea returned to head- 
quarters after a preliminary investigation 
of the robberies. 

"One of them is the same man who 
was shooting up the town Saturday 
night," he reported, "but the other has 
gone through a change of some sort. He 
doesn't sound like the same man. We 
ought to get that ta.\i." 

"I've ordered every cab to get off the 
streets as fast as they report in," said 
O'Brien. "That will eliminate the num- 
ber of vehicles we will have to look for. 
Each police district has been divided into 
zones with scores of police and volun- 
teers patrolling it. They can't continue 
much longer without being caught." 

Ihe bandits continued to operate, 
however, in spite of O'Brien's precau- 
tions. Albert Anderson, a sailor walking 
along the waterfront, was the ne.xt vic- 
tim. 

"I'm broke," he protested when the 
older bandit confronted him with a gun. 
He had scarcely uttered the words when 
the automatic smashed against his face. 
He was taken to the Harbor emergency 
hospital with brain concussion. 

A few moments later Manuel An- 
drade and Tony Surkovich, coowners of 
a restaurant, spotted the cab while walk- 
ing home together. They broke and ran, 
Hceing like frightened deer along the 
sidewalk. The cab pulled up beside 
them, the black haired man leaped from 
it, pounced on Surkovich, beat him over 
the head with the gun butt, and took 
seven dollars. 

"They didn't shoot," Chief O'Brien 
remarked when the report came into 
headquarters. "Could they be out of 
ammunition?" 

Further evidence that the pair were 
carrying empty guns came a few mo- 
ments later when Stephen ^Valker, a 
young carpenter, faced them in a service 
station. 

"Take my money," Walked begged, 
"but keep your bullets to yourself. I've 
got a wife and kids at home." 

Jhe black haired bandit raised his gun 
menacingly. 

"Let him go," his young companion 
urged. "Enough people have been hurt. " 
As he spoke Officer Dorsey Henderson, 
driving his own car, entered the station.

Lcoiuird Strand, the prdpn'ctor, gcstiir >' 
toward tlu* pair. 

"Cjet thcni," he shouted. "I'liey're the 
terror bandits !" 

Instead of turning their guns on the 
officer as they had in the past, the duo 
leaped into their car and sped away. 
Henderson threw his car into gear and 
followed them, his gun spouting flam" 
The ijunnien's luck held, however, an 1 
they eluded the pursuing officer. A few 
hlocks away he found the wrecked cab at 
Ibth Street, apparently where the pair 
had failed to negotiate a sharp turn. 

Ihe cab was found just two blocks 
away from the spot where Officer Doyle 
stood guard over its murdered owner's 
body. 

Speeding to the scene Lieutenant Dul- 
lea found Swanson's blue overcoat plus 
a blue steel automatic in the car. 

"At least we might be able to get this 
gun to tell us something," he remarked. 

While Dullea investigated the taxi a 
huge touring car roaded across the via- 
duct two blocks away. Officer Doyle, at 
his post by Swanson's body, waved his 
flashlight angrily, motioning for it to 
stop. I'he response was an insane laugh, 
followed bv a burst of gunfire. 

Officer Doyle flattened himself against 
the ground and answered the killer's 
shots with bullets of his own. The car 
sped on into the night, unharmed. The 
encounter with Doyle, like the meeting 
with Chief (^'Hrien on Saturday night, 
appeared to be enough for the murder- 
ous duo. I hey had no taste for answer- 
ing gunfire, and did not strike again that 
night. 

Behind them lay four, possibly five, 
murders, several men critically wounded, 
and a score of robbery victims. San 
Francisco was a city living in terror. Not 
since the days of Seimsen and Dabner, 
the "Gas Pipe Bandits," had it witnessed 
such an orgy of wanton murder. 

Men from the Pinkerton and Burns 
detecti\e agencies reported at police 
headquarters to help in the man hunt. 
Blockades had been thrown across all 
roads leading from San Francisco. Police 
worked all night and into the next day, 
raiding underworld dives, searching ho- 
tels and boarding houses, and questioning 
every suspicious character. 

The first break in the case came the 
next day when Jim Lawson, a cafe em- 
ploye, reported to police that he had been 
beaten the pre\ious Saturday night b\ 
the killers. 

"One of them pulled a gun," he re- 
ported, "but his friend said to let me 
go. He knew me." 

"Who was he?" Captain Mathesen 
inquired. 

"I don't know exactly, except that

people call him Buck ami he hangs 
around the Knights of the Red Branch 
Hall. He would probably be there to- 
night." 

Mathesoii detailed Detective Sergeant 
Allen McGinn and two other officers to 
go to the hall that night with Lawson. 
Shotgun squads were stationed outside, 
waiting for violent resistance. But al- 
though they searched until the nightly 
dance ended the mysterious Buck never 
appeared. 

The follov\'ing night Chief of Police 
O'Brien spoke for the second time over 
the air and assured the terrified citizens 
of San Francisco that they were safe 
from further murder raids by the Mad 
Dog. 

Police continued to work night and 
day in an effort to track down the killers. 
Police districts were still subdi\ided into 
zones, and the zones were broken down 
into special categories such as hotels, res- 
taurants, boarding houses, private homes, 
business establishments, pool halls, even 
to vacant lots. 

Each of these places was searched, 
their occupants questioned, and all sus- 
picious characters taken to the Hall of 
Justice for further examination. Par- 
ticular attention was paid to underworld 
dives and speakeasies. Still no good sus- 
pect was located. Repeated attempts to 
find the mysterious "Buck" at the 
Knights of the Red Branch Hall failed. 

After repeated wild goose chases for 
two days, Detectives Louis DeMattei and 
George "Paddy" Wafer conceived the 
idea of continuing their search at night 
in the company of two e.xcons who had 
offered to help track down the killers. 

The pair continued their specified du- 
ties during the day, but made the rounds 
of underworld hangouts at night with 
the friendly felons. In several pool 
rooms they heard talk about an Irish- 
man, an Italian, and a man known only 
as "Gooseneck." 

Both the Italian and the Irishman 
were located, but both produced unshake- 
able alibis. Still not discouraged, De- 
!\Iattei and Wafer continued their search 
for Gooseneck. After almost a week of 
steady work one of their e.xcons located 
a man who knew "Gooseneck." Con- 
fronted by the detectives, he was reticent. 

"I'd be crazy to rat on a guy who has 
killed five people," he remarked. "AVhat 
makes you think I'd live to testify?" 

"^Ve'll see that you're well taken care 
of," Wafer promised. "Anyway, the 
sooner we get Gooseneck, the safer you 
are. What makes you think he'll let you 
live now?" 

With the promise of special protection 
the man xolunteered the information 
that he had seen "Gooseneck" with a

ficshh baiulagcil n'Kht hand at a Waller 
Street saloon in the wee hours of Suiuia> 
morning. He added that the man had 
talked to the proprietor of the speakeas\ 
and apparently knew him, 

DeMattei ami Wafer \ isited the Wal- 
ler Street speakeasy that night. 

"Sure I know a fellow they call 
'Gooseneck'," the proprietor told the of- 
ficers, "He comes in here all the time. 
Is there any trouble? ' 

"\Vas he in here Saturda\' night? " 

"Not Saturday night exactly. Sunday 
morning about three a.m.," the man re- 
plied. "He had a bloody rag over his 
hand and he seemed worried about some- 
thing." 

"He should ha\T been," Wafer re- 
marked. The inspectors learned through 
questioning se\eral of the habitues of the 
place that "Gooseneck's" proper nam? 
was Lawrence Weeks and that he li\ed 
in a cheap boarding hovise on Howard 
Street. 

A visit to the Howard Street address 
revealed that the suspect worked at the 
Duboce Street tunnel, drank quite a bit, 
but otherwise lived a quiet life. 

"We'd better not pick him up \et, 
DeMattei suggested. "If we watch him 
he might lead us to the other killer. 
Prom the way these jobs went, I'd sa\' he 
was the worst of the two." 

I he detecti\es agreed to visit the 
Duboce Street tunnel the following day 
and watch their quarry from a distance. 
Weeks was pointed out to them by thr 
foreman on the job. He fitted the de- 
scription of the number two man on the 
Saturday night crimes perfectly. His face 
was heavy boned with close set eyes, but 
he in no way tallied with the man who 
had accompanied the buck toothed killer 
on the following Alonday. 

"I wonder if there can be a third 
man, " DeMattei observed. 

"Let's watch him and find out. " 

A three day vigil added nothing to 
their information. From a neighboring 
rooftop the\ watched the suspect and saw 
nothing in his behavior that would dis- 
tinguish him from other men. Finger- 
prints were obtained through the fore- 
man, but when these were taken to the 
rogues galler\ in the bureau of identifi- 
cation none were found that \vould 
match them. The fellow evidently had 
no previous criminal record. 

Ihe behavior of Weeks oft the job 
was just as exemplary as his record indi- 
cated. He drank a lot, but otherwise had 
no associations with the iniderworld nor 
any evident inclination toward crime. 
One flaw was found, however, that was 
out of line with the man's general char- 
acter.

revealed regular large depo.sits that were 
oversize for the four dollars a day labor- 
er's wage he earned at the tunnel. 

On Monday, a week after the second 
(.rime orgy, the detectives decided to pick 
him up. The first thing they noticed at 
clo.se range was a large raw scar on his 
right hand. 

"Where did yon get that?" they de- 
manded. 

"I cut my hand working in the tunnel 
about a week ago," Weeks replied. 

DeMattei turned to the foreman. "Did 
he?" 

"He didn't report ainthing like that 
to me," was the answer. 

DeAIattei turned back to AV^eeks. "Get 
in the car. \Ve're going for a ride." 

Weeks entered the machine and the 
three began an automobile ride around 
the city. For four hours the three men 
drove past the scenes of the three-day 
crime orgy with the detectives making 
significant remarks as they passed the 
point where a particularly fiendish ac- 
tion had taken place. 

Confronted bluntly with the fact that 
he was a suspect, Weeks trembled per- 
ceptibly, but denied any knowledge of 
the crime. Slowly the intelligent ques- 
tioning of the officers broke down his 
resistance. 

"I've had enough," he said. "I'll talk." 

Weeks admitted all of the Saturday 
night robberies and the murder of Pa- 
gano, but stated he had nothing to do 
with the killing of Biaginni. Asked 
about the Monday night jobs. Weeks 
flatly denied having anything to do with 
them. He steadfastly clung to his story. 

"I had all I wanted Monday night." 

In spite of the hope that the arrest of 
Weeks would lead them to the other kil- 
ler, DeMattei and Wafer were disap- 
pointed. 

"I only knew him as 'Buck'," he said. 
"Besides, I wouldn't name him if I 
could. He'd kill me without batting an 
eye. There is nothing you could do to 
protect me." 

Constant questioning at the Hall of 
Justice by Lieutenants Dullea and Mc- 
Donald and finally by Chief O'Brien 
himself accomplished nothing. Weeks, 
either because of fear or loyalty, refuse;! 
to name his companion. 

Meanwhile Detective Sergeant Leo 
Bunner, making a house to house search 
of his zone, discovered a cafe owner who 
had overheard two men, both cab drivers, 

talking about the murders and suggest-

Ing rliar tlu'N' wait tor a large reward to 
be offered before they turned the killers 
in. They talked about Walter Swansnn 
and mentioned a man named Kelh' re- 
peatedly, saying that Kelly had been a 
cab dri\er himself. 

Detective Sergeants George Wall and 
William IMcMahon were ordered to join 
Hrunner in a thorough investigation of 
the cab companies. The office manager 
of the first company contacted revealed a 
man named Clarence Kelly had work"d 
tor the company, but left it for another. 

"I remember the boys called him 
Huck," he reported. 

A second company was investigated, 
but Kelly had left there also. Neither 
had kept his address. iVIcMahon returned 
til the Hall of Justice where Dullea and 
.McDonald were carrying on their tire- 
less grilling of Weeks. He handed them 
the name on a slip of paper. 

Dullea continued on the line he had 
been following for several minutes, 
scarcely paying any attention to the in- 
terruption. Then he shook AVeeks with 
a single blunt statement. 

"Your pal was Clarence Kelly. \'ou 
might as well admit it." 

Taken by surprise, Weeks blurted 
out: "How did you find that out?" be- 
fore he realized what he was saying. The 
exhausted young killer then admitted 
that Kelly had been his accomplice. He 
gave Dullea a South Park address. 

Confident that their long vigil was al- 
most over, Lieutenant McDonald led a 
posse of detectives to the South Park 
address. With shotguns poised for ac- 
tion and revolvers ready, McDonald, 
with AVall, McMahon, and Bimner, en- 
tered the house. 

"Where's your search warrant?" an 
indignant roomer demanded. 

" Ihis time we don't need one," Mc- 
Donald told him. 1 hey entered a dimly 
lit third floor hallway and approached 
room 47, the one singled out by Weeks. 

A black haired voung man suddenly 
dodged out of the room and sped down 
the back stairs. As the detectives reached 
the back porch they saw him double back 
into room 49. 

A familiar command to Kelly, "Hands 
up!" was snapped by McDonald, but the 
young man continued his desperate break 
for freedom. 

Once more police bullets went wing- 
ing after the killer, this time with crip- 
pling accuracy. Blood spurted from the 
fleeing man's arm, but failed to check his 
headlong flight. A second bullet found 
its mark. The injured man staggered, 
but disappeared through the rear of 
flat 49.

.McDonald and his man burst into the 
flat past a startled 17 year old boy and 
followed a trail of blood to the closet. 
There they found the fugitive, critically 
wounded but still defiant. 

Kelly was taken to the San Francisco 
hospital, where police questioned him in 
regard to the murders. He denied any 
complicity in the crimes. A search of his 
rooms revealed a quantity of loot, a blood 
stained shirt, and a pair of black leather 
puttees such as those used by the uni- 
formed cab drivers of Walter Swanson's 
company. Confronted with this evidence 
Kelly shrugged. 

"I'm picked as a fall guy," the suspect 
said. "Why should I say anything?" 

"Tell us who was with you Monday 
night," McDonald urged. 

Kelly laughed. "I was home in bed." 

^^'^itnesses were paraded in front of 
both Kelly and Weeks. All unanimously 
recognized Kelly, but only those who 
had been victims of the Saturday orgy 
recognized Weeks. 

"There was another man," the Mon- 
day night victims told McDonald. 

Dullea, continuing his questioning of 
AVeeks, learned that Kelly had fre- 
quented a Third Street pool room. He 
passed this information on to Detective 
Allan McGinn. 

"We raided that place Saturday and 
Monday," Captain Charles Goff of 
Southern station told him. "However, 
we can try again." 

A number of suspects were rounded 
up and brought to McGinn for question- 
ing. Confronted with Kelly's name, all 
could remember one significant fact. 

"He was with Mike Papadaches early 
Monday," they reported, "but he didn't 
get into town until late Saturday night. 
He was in the country picking grapes." 

A description of Papadaches fitted per- 
fectly with the Monday bandit's, and 
McGinn, with Detective Sergeant Ire- 
dale, visited his home. 7 he 18 year old 
boy greeted the detectives in a bathrobe 
and surrendered without a struggle. In- 
formed that he was a suspect he broke 
down completely and admitted, through 
tears, that he had participated in the 
Monday night holdups. 

"I didn't want to hurt anybody," he 
sobbed. "After what he did to the cab 
driver I wanted to quit, but he wouldn't 
let me. I was afraid he'd kill me if I 
ran out." 

Papadaches positively identified Kelly 
as the third killer, and, after talking to 
Chief (^'Rrien, turned state's evidence.

Presented with ()\ erwhelniiiiK cviilcnce 
against the trio, the San Francisco 
County Grand Jur\- indicted them on 
multiple murder charges. 

Kelly, who remained defiant to the 
cml, was tried in December 1^26, found 
guilty of three charges of murder and 
given three death sentences. Kelly 
laughted at the court. 

"Hell, you can only hang me once," 
he jeered. 

Weeks entered a plea of guilty to the 
Pagano murder, also to grand larceny, 
seven robbery counts, and one for auto 
theft. He was given a life sentence for 
murder, plus consecutive sentences of fwe 
years each for robbery and one to ten 
years for grand theft. 

Papadaches, because of his youth and 
the fact that he turned state's evidence, 
was allowed to plead guilty to two counts 
of second degree robbery and sentenced 
to the California State Reformator\-. At 
the age of 21 he was released on parole, 
but returned to San Quentin prison a 
short time later when he was arrested on 
a drunk driving charge and convicted of 
parole violation. 

Kelly was executed in San Quentin 
prison on May 11, 1928, after his last 
appeal was denied. 



PROGRESS REPORT 

(CuntniurJ from page !■/) 
that I aspire to elective office this spring. 
Although it comes as an honor to be so 
mentioned, it is distressing to note that 
words and actions given without parti- 
san design should be construed as tools 
of political ambition. 

I am not a candidate for elective office 
in 1953. If I aspire to contribute further 
service to our city, it is best oftered in 
the field to which I ha\e de\oted the 
major portion of my life. 

It is the task of the police to protect 
the lives and property of citizens of Los 
Angeles. We are engaged in a coura- 
geous and worthwhile attempt to honor- 
ably and professionally accomplish that 
task. It is not a thing to be destroyed 
for transient advantage. I trust the com- 
ing election will not see the progress we 
ha\e made sacrificed upon the altar of 
selfish purpose.

(Continued from page 11 ) 
oretl by the National Safety Council for 
going through the entire year of 1950 
without a single traffic fatality. During 
1951 only one fatality marred the record 
and the same thing happened last year. 
1 he North Sacramento department 
had the first uniformed and trained civil 
defense auxiliary police force in North- 
ern California. The 35 members of the 
auxiliary meet twice a month, and have 
advanced through all of the regular civil 
defense courses. Now some of them are 
being trained in squad car work, just in 
case that should become necessary in an 
emergency. The department furnishes 
them with badges and hat shields, and 
each of the 35 men has bought his own 
uniform. 

I he auxiliary is so popular there is a 
permanent waiting list of men who want 
to join. But the department's training 
and other facilities are not adequate to 
handle a bigger auxiliary at present. 

Last year the force added a photo lab- 
oratory to its facilities. The fellow who 
does nearly all of the printing and other 
dark room work is Chief Wilson. 

Violent deaths are rare in the city, and 
one that happened last year shows the 
department is just as happy in freeing an 
innocent man as in convicting a guilty 
one. 

A woman was found shot to death in 
a manner clearly indicating she had been 
murdered. She was killed by a shot in 
the abdomen from a high powered rifle. 
No powder burns were evident and it 
appeared very unlikely that she could 
have shot herself because of the length 
of the rifle. Besides, the weapon was 
several feet from where her body was 
found on the floor of her living room, 
and there was a bullet hole in the wall 
at such an angle suicide was ruled out at 
an early stage. 

The victim's boy friend had spent the 
evening with her. He admitted they had 
quarreled, and was jailed as a suspect. 

"At that stage," Chief AVilson recalls, 
"convicting him would have been a sim- 
ple matter of going to court. He was 
hooked." 

But the investigation went on because 
of the defendant's insistence that he had 
nothing to do with the shooting. And it 
produced results. The bullet hole in the 
wall, which was such a convincing clue, 
turned out to be an old one, caused when 
the gun went off accidentally some weeks 
before. The bullet was found, and it 
had on it no flesh particles. An inch by 
inch check showed another tiny hole in 
the cracked ceiling, which was where the 
fatal bullet went.

the records in I'^Ob, and to the conse- 
quent creation and development of a fin- 
gerprint file that for some years was the 
largest in the west. Caldwell asserts that, 
like some others, he too had found an 
earlier interest in Mark Twain's notable 
storv, "Fudd'nhead Wilson." 

Harry H. Caldwell was pensioned 
from the service in 1932, after a period 
of nearly three decades devoted to the 
furtherance of modern methods in crimi- 
nology, and, during that time, the Oak- 
land department was directed by a num- 
ber of different chiefs; some of whom 
had little interest in scientific advance- 
ment. Caldwell relates an amusing 
though lamentable episode of his return 
from an unusually important convention 
of the International Association for 
Identification, in which at various times 
he held many offices and of which he was 
eventually made Dean Emeritus. 

On this especial occasion, the organi- 
zation, largely through Caldwell's ef- 
forts, had accomplished the enactment 
of certain national legislation particu- 
larly favorable to the interests of law- 
enforcement, and the related events had 
been widely publicized by the press: 
Caldwell's name and preeminence were 
blazoned upon the first page of every 
journal from coast to coast. Upon re- 
porting for duty, he was met at the sta- 
tion by the current chief, whom Cald- 
well greeted respectfully, voicing a hope 
that the commendatory newspaper stor- 
ies, inevitably reflecting credit to the 
entire department and its head executi\e, 
had met with his superior's approval. 
The chief grudgingly admitted the fa- 
vorable recognition, but added, "Those 
fellows (meaning the identification ex- 
perts) are all fakers; you know that as 
well as I do." 

Intolerance Encountered 

Such bigotry displayed by the leading 
official of a large metropolitan organiza- 
tion offers some indication of the igno- 
rant intolerance encountered by those 
who champion progress. However, the

annals of mankind have been expurgated 
by time's cleansing touch, and the petty 
personalities of temporary tyrants are 
deleted from the record ; whereas, for 
those who sacrificed personal interest in 
the welfare of humanity, destiny reserves 
a lasting laurel. 

Always to be remembered are those 
fearless leaders who had advanced the 
precepts of science, but the field of per- 
sonal identification probably owes its 
largest debt to August Vollmer, retired 
Professor of Police Administration at 
the University, of California, and ac- 
knowledged world leader in all branches 
of criminology. Through nearly half a 
century of tireless effort, his versatile 
genius has largely been the cause of uni- 
versal appreciation for the use of science 
in society's warfare against crime, and 
has earned him the well-deserved title of 
"Father of Modern Police Methods." 

Progressive Policies 

It was an important event in the civic 
annals of Berkele\' when August Voll- 
mer was elected to the post of Town 
Marshal in 1905. His progressive poli- 
cies at once brought about marked ad- 
vancement in the city's administrative 
and executive program, and, in 1909, his 
appointment to the position of Chief of 
Police offered freer scope for the devel- 
opment of an organization that was des- 
tined to become an international stand- 
ard of excellence. 

Fully appreciative of fingerprint util- 
ity, Vollmer lost no time in adopting 
the method. He writes that the first per- 
son to be thus recorded in the Berkeley 
Bureau was one Frank Snow, amusingly 
enough, a drug addict, whose impressions, 
made in December 1907, upon an unpre- 
pared sheet of white paper, are still pre- 
served in the police archives. Vollmer 
also asserts that almost with the bureau's 
inception, the identification of a much 
wanted but at first unrecognized confi- 
dence man, through submitting his fin- 
gerprints to an eastern bureau for search, 
amply illustrated the system's efficiency, 
dispelling whatever doubts may have lin- 
gered in the minds of other civic execu- 
tives. 

Captain Clarence D. Lee, a co-worker 
with Vollmer, had been placed in charge 
of the records in 1906, and the kindred 
interests of Vollmer, Lee, Caldwell, De 
Pue, and certain other progressi\es, led 
to the advocation of a state identification 
bureau to serve as a clearing house for 
fingerprint records sent from all Califor- 
nia law enforcement agencies. Such a 
proposal was duly introduced before the 
state legislature in 1907, but, although 
gaining a majority approval by that body.

the current governor's veto killed the 
measure. 

Bill Passes 

But Vollnier and his able confreres 
were not of the type who tamely submit 
to opposition, however dishearteniii};. 
\ ear after year, the project was repeat- 
edly introduced before every subsequent 
state administration, until 1918, when 
the bill was finally passed, creating the 
much-needed central bureau in the Cali- 
fornia State Capitol at Sacramento. This 
successful crusade, led by Chief Voll- 
mer and his followers, like many of his 
other signal enterprises, deserves the 
highest commendation. 

Despite the spread of appreciation for 
fingerprinting in the United States, com- 
paratively few technical books were writ- 
ten on the subject, primarily. "Finger- 
prints, 1 heir Identitication and L^ses," 
by Frederick A. Brayley, printed in 
1910, seems to have been the first, while 
"Finger Print Instructor," by Frederick 
Kuhne, and published in 1916, was the 
only early American text to attain gen- 
eral recognition. "Finger Prints Simpli- 
fied," offered some years later by James 
Holt, although a useful work, failed to 
gain any considerable popularity, and 
other sporadic outputs by various writers 
enjoyed only transient notice with the 
exception of "Personal Identification, " 
by Prof. Harris H. AVilder and Bert 
AVentworth. This authoritative work, 
dealing with the identification field more 
generally, was considered both practical 
ami inclusive. However, even this con- 
tribution furnished little historical data 
and tendered no systemic improvements 
or extensions of the fundamental Galton- 
Henry principles; the original text by Sir 
E. R. Henry, "Classification and L^ses 
of Finger Prints, " published in 1900 in 
England, continued to be preferred by 
students. 

Transition Period 

Obviously, it would be futile to fur- 
nish a chronological list of the dates and 
places when fingerprints were installed 
by the various states and cities of Amer- 
ica, although it would seem appropriate 
to offer some few of the more significant 
and representative circumstances. The 
pioneer work of Ferrier inspired a large 
number of students, who, later, as teach- 
ers, imparted information to many oth- 
ers, but the New "'l ork Police School of 
Criminology, conducted by Joseph Fau- 
rot, as an enduring organization, pro- 
vided instruction for more scholars, 
many of whom came from distant parts 
to attend classes.

the system was extended, as earnest ad- 
vocates carried the teachings to all parts 
of the country; and here and there some 
enterprising and forceful figure attained 
more than passing repute. A. J. Reno, 
an active participant in the enforcement 
field, toolc up the study of fingerprinting 
in 1905, shortly thereafter introducing 
the method in the Illinois State Reforma- 
tory and also in the .Mi^inesota State 
Penitentiary, in 1908. Reno featured 
prominently through that transitional 
period, and held office in the identifica- 
tion experts' organization, later adding 
his eftorts to secure the passage of legal 
measures that proved exceedingly helpful 
to the identification program. 

Years Pay Tribute 
The passing years pay their tribute to 
all those worthy leaders of the earlier 
ilays in identification development, and 
modern recognition agrees that few con- 
tributed so generously as did Bert Went- 
worth, alreadv mentioned as coauthor 
with Prof. H. H. Wilder. ^Vhile Police 
Commissioner in Dover, New Hamp- 
shire, he brought fingerprinting to the 
police department of that city in 1906, 
and, until his death in 1938, the under- 
taking of law enforcement occupied a 
major portion of his activities. As writer, 
lecturer, and identification expert of the 
highest caliber, his career was both bril- 
liant and productive. A kindly and just 
administration marked his period of of- 
fice in judicial capacity, and while he 
was a representative of the State Legis- 
lature, the ratification of a bill which he 
introduced abolished capital punishment 
in the State of New Hampshire in 1931. 

International Association 

The Twentieth Century's first decade 
witnessed the wide spreading of enlight- 
enment by those mentioned educators 
and their various associates, although the 
period from 1910 to 1914 probably saw 
the most progress. Rut the succeeding 
vears beheld a world torn by conflict that 
left small consideration for aught save 
"wars and rumors of wars." However, 
despite unfavorable conditions, by 1915, 
the number of identification experts in 
the United States had increased greatly, 
and resulted in the "International Asso- 
ciation for Criminal Identification," or- 
ganized in Oakland, California, with 
Harry H. Caldwell as the fraternity's 
first president. The word "criminal" 
was later eliminated from the title, and 
the membership expanded to include ren- 
resentatives in every country in the 
world.

count for the slower acceptance of finger- 
printing in the United States, as com- 
pared with Great Britain, her colonies, 
and Austria, Germany, Sweden, and the 
Argentine Republic. But the advance of 
the 'Fwcntieth Century, enforcement 
men from New \"ork; to San Francisco 
were viewing anthropometry with acute 
distrust; even to the tardiest discernment 
must finally heed the urging of dissatis- 
faction. 

One of the most pretentious projects 
ever undertaken by man was exca\ation 
of the Panama Canal, and here again 
engineers and other technicians encount- 
ered the problem of personal identifica- 
tion so pertinent to large industrial ven- 
ture. In 1905, the Isthmian Canal Com- 
mission solicited advice and information 
from officials of the New York State 
Prison Department. Only a few short 
years prior to that time, such a request 
would ine\itably have evoked a glowing 
eulogy and recommendation of anthro- 
pometry, but Bertillon's temporary ex- 
pedient had relinquished its place in the 
sun, and without reservation the New 
York experts stipulated that identifica- 
tion by fingerprints should be emploved 
in that colossal and important enterprise. 

Although California was one of the 
first states to create a centralized file, 
others soon came into being throughout 
America. In some instances their incep- 
tion was modest, but the element of in- 
itiative was ever present, as exemplified 
in the state of Michigan, where shortly 
after the beginning of the First ^Vorld 
War, Capt. I. H. Marmon, of the De- 
troit Police Department, started the 
State Bureau with a collection of finger- 
prints which he had previously been fil- 
ing in a shoe box. 

Some years were required for the birth 
of statutes creating state bureaus in the 
various sections. The State Bureau of 
Identification of Pennsylvania came into 
existence with the passage of an Act of 
Assembly dated and approved April 27, 
1937, although, for some time previously, 
the State Police had maintained a bureau 
of identification. The law not only es- 
tablished the central registry, but also 
required municipal police to furnish 
copies of prints to the State in all felony 
cases, and authorized district attorneys 
of the several counties to employ finger- 
print experts. At least twelve state iden- 
tification bureaus existed in the U. S. in 
1928; by 1938, the number had in- 
creased to thirty-four. South Dakota's

was established at Philadelphia in 1924 
by Harry J. Myers, a criminologist of 
that city. He is also accredited with the 
installation of the footpriiiting of infants 
in Pennsylvania hospitals in 1925. Dur- 
ing that year, the municipal court at 
Philadelphia witnessed a perplexing epi- 
sode in the puzzling Steimling-Selknitter 
case involving a pair of newborn infants 
"mixed" by hospital attendants. Judge 
MacNeille, who presided, was so in- 
censed by the unnecessary confusion of 
identity, that he sponsored a bill before 
the State Legislature calling for a com- 
pulsory foot-and-fingerprint law to apply 
in all maternity wards and hospitals in 
the state. The measure was agitated by 
Myers and other progressives, and on 
April 29, 1925, was signed by Governor 
Gifford Pinchot. Following this, Harry 
J. Myers writes that he was called to in- 
stall his system in over a score of insti- 
tutions. 

This event held unique importance, 
since it brought recognition of the use 
of fingerprints for non-criminal registra- 
tion. A few years later, the primary in- 
troduction by Dr. Henry P. de Forest 
came to culmination in July, 1931, when 
the United States Civil Service extended 
fingerprinting to all of its many branches. 
Realization was dawning on the Tweii- 
tieth Century that fingerprint identifica- 
tion need not be limited to the registra- 
tion of public enemies. 

Such outstanding instances in which 
fingerprinting found favor in civil uses 
increased appreciation of those latent 
possibilities once so familiar and neces- 
sary to primitive man, whose survival 
depended upon his recognition of traces 
made by both friend and foe. Not only 
in the United States, but in all countries, 
had man retrieved his forgotten birth- 
right. Though the technical treatment 
varied in different localities, the objective 
remained identical ; namely, that of re- 
cording personal identity. 

Despite the many other examples of 
fingerprint attainment, none can dispute 
that America's criterion is the Federal 
Bureau of Identification at Washington, 
D. C. Although when founded in 1908, 
it was not primarily intended as a reposi- 
tory or clearing house for such records, 
but since its later direction to that pur- 
pose, well over one hundred and fifty 
million fingerprint cards have poured 
into the government archives. 

In tracing the origin and evolution of 
this vital national unit, the original rec- 
ord file created by the International As- 
sociation of Chiefs of Police prior to 
1896, at Chicago, is recalled. Although 
this then included Bertillon registration 
only, it constituted, as specified earlier, 
the first American record bureau ha\ing

a national scope. However, the organi- 
zation was not then under Federal super- 
vision, and, when the files were later 
nio\ed to Washington, D. C, the project 
was still in the nature of a private enter- 
prise. 

Eugene Van Buskirk, the superinten- 
dent, maintained an information service 
for all enforcement agencies on the 
bureau's subscription lists, to which, for 
a per capita fee, peace officers might 
submit records of local prisoners, and 
receive in return the data from the cen- 
tral file on any known prior offenses 
committed by the subjects. 

A similar though less extensive ex- 
change was later furnished b\' Major R. 
\V. McCloughry, while supervising the 
record bureau at Fort Leavenworth Pen- 
itentiary. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation 
was originally organized to prove the 
United States Department of Justice 
with a permanent investigative force un- 
der its immediate control. It was first 
known as the Division of Investigation. 
Its subsequent name, the Federal Bureau 
of Investigation, was finally adopted as 
more nearly descriptive of its status as 
the general investigative agency of the 
Federal Government. And, as Congress 
passed new Federal laws extending the 
bureau's investigative jurisdiction, its 
size and importance increased ; but still 
the department did not employ finger- 
prints. 

Those courageous American statesmen 
whose signatures conclude the historic 
Declaration of Independence are revered 
everlastingly ; and comparably illustrious 
are those leaders of science who brought 
about the attainment of fingerprints. It 
is probable that no prior event in the his- 
tory of personal identification contrib- 
uted more effectiveh' than did the forma- 
tion of a fingerprint unit in the United 
States Department of Justice in 1924. 
To those responsible for this epic ad- 
vancement, not only in the field of law 
enforcement, but the entire world owes 
a debt of gratitude. Many persons, di- 
rectly and indirectly, lent aid to this ac- 
complishment ; and it would, of course, 
be impossible to enumerate them all ; 
however, one of the primary and most 
persevering instigators is recognized in 
August Vollmer. 

Through the efforts of these leaders, 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation was 
reorganized, and the criminal identifica- 
tion data previously maintained at Leav- 
enworth Penitentiary was consolidated 
with the records of the International 
Association of Chiefs of Police, to form 
a national clearing house of criminal in- 
formation \inder the bureau's jurisdic-

tion. Although a great deal of this 
earlier material consisted of Hertillon 
measurements, the consolidation broui^Iit 
to A\'ashin5iton a nucleus for the bu- 
reau's iilentilication di\'ision of over eight 
hunilred tliousand fingerprint records. 

During the years that followed, the 
bureau's operations were systematized, a 
training school for government agents 
was founded at Washington, and t/: 
bureau developed many and various serv- 
ices designed to promote cooperation be- 
tween it and other law enforcement 
agencies, local, state, and international. 

At the time of the bureau's reorgani- 
zation, the Hon. Harlan F. Stone, after- 
ward a Justice of the United States Su- 
preme Court, was United States Attor- 
ney General. His Chief Deputy was 
John Edgar Hoover. This promising 
young executive was selected to direct 
the new bureau's destinies, and history 
was in the making. Under the eflficient 
guidance of its able chief through the 
succeeding years, the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation has come to stand for the 
ultimate in law enforcement; its care- 
fully selected representatives are the 
chosen heroes of America's young man- 
hood ; and its policies and practices mark 
it as an all-time, national standard of t'ii" 
sterling qualities inscribed upon its of- 
ficial insignia: Fidelity, Bravery and In- 
tegrity. 



OFFICER OF THE MONTH

made him the most publicized mounted 
policeman San Francisco has seen in 
many a year. 

It also won him the Police and 
Peace Officers' Journal's first Cer- 
tificate of Merit and a $50 United States 
Sa\'ings bond for the outstanding indi- 
vidual piece of police work in the state 
of California during the thirty-day pe- 
riod between Januarv and February 
15th, 1953. 

Chaney's horse. Bill, was no less 
heroic than his master. Sometimes swim- 
ming, sometimes walking on the sand\' 
bottom, the plucky animal moved headon 
into line after line of the wind-tossed 
breakers. Out to where Williamson 
struggled for his life. The youth shouted 
"Get the girl. She needs help worse than 
I do. " The horse and his rider moved on 
through the breakers to the point more 
than 100 yards off shore where Barbara 
floated for the moment in a patch of 
quiet water. 

It took all of Chaney's strength and 
skill to keep the beast moving into the 
current. To swing broadside would be 
disastrous. Rut Bill's animal instinct and 
the officer's common sense paid off. Be- 
fore long Chaney and Bill reached the

fjiri. She groped toward the saildle but 
her numbed, exhausted fingers were in- 
c.ipable of holding any sort of a grip. 
The biggest task was ahead for Chaney 
and Bill. For the moment the nearest 
line of combers was breaking well be- 
\ond them. But the surf is an unpredict- 
able thing. Waves are not particular 
about the point where they break. And 
if one had broken too close when Chaney 
swung his steed around, plunged an arm 
in the water and haided the girl bodily 
aboard, a man, a girl and a horse would 
have needed rescuing. Then, with the 
girl in tow, all the officer had to do was 
hold iier secure with one hand while he 
■ent his horse shoreward with the other. 
Riding a horse is a one-handed job, but 
not in a raging surf. 

A crowd had gathered on Ocean 
Beach when Jack anil Bill went to sea. 
A camera fan had hauled out his box and 
was recording the scene on film. A few 
moments later two powerfully built men 
in swimming suits plunged into the surf 
to help. They met Chaney about half 
WAX in and took over the task of towing 
the girl ashore. Seconds later, the dra- 
matic incident was over. Officer Wil- 
liam Becker, a former lifeguard, and 
Walter ^Vehr, chief lifeguard at Fleish- 
hacker Pool, the pair who had come to 
Chaney 's assistance, were gi\'ing the girl 
first aid. Chaney and Rill stood nearby, 
wet, cold and exhausted. Later report- 
ers found out just what had happened. 

Williamson and Miss Engs had been 
playing in the surf near the rubber boat 
when a wave suddenly washed it away 
from them. The young couple started to 
swim ashore but tired rapidly. The boy 
attempted to help the girl, but more 
waves swept them apart. The girl drifted 
out to sea while the boy was rolled shore- 
warii. Then Chaney appeared. 

Chaney's act made him an obvious 
choice for the Police and Peace Offi- 
CHRs' Journal award. He went to Bar- 
bara's aid without regard for his own 
life. Booted and in full uniform he 
would not have had a chance in the surf 
if Bill had turned broadside to a wave 
and been swept off his feet. But his 
deed was more than one of courage. 
There was thought behind his act and 
careful preparation. Chaney had antici- 
pated a situation such as the one which 
confronted him that day and prepared 
for it. He had trained Bill for his part 
of the rescue. Horses have no great Io\c 
for swimming and e\en less for rough 
water. In spite of this, due to Chaney's 
preparation, the animal came through

with H\iiig colors. It was this preparation 
as well as the officer's unselfish courage, 
which won him the award. His fore- 
sight as well as his fearlessness can well 
serve as an example to all California 
Peace Officers. 

Honorable Mention 

Paul J. Hayes of the San Diego Police 
Department came as close to winning the 
Police and Peace Officers' Journal 
$50 savings bond for outstanding police 
work this month as a policeman can and 
not win. Ha\'es' record, however, indi- 
cates that one of these days he will 
emerge on top. 

On the eleventh of February, 1953, 
Hayes was riding in a police car when a 
radio call announced that a woman had 
fallen into the water at the foot of Ash 
Street on the Embarcadero. Hayes and 
a companion sped to the scene and found 
56-year-old Mrs. May Homer struggling 
in the water. The officer dove 12 feet off 
the Embarcadero and rescued the woman. 

Rescue work is nothing new to Hayes. 
The son of a former San Diego chief of 
detectives, he learned to swim with Flor- 
ence Chadwick and his aquatic ability has 
been put to use many times. He was one 
of the divers who helped recover the 
bodies of two children who drowned last 
summer in a pool near Grantville, Mis- 
sion Valley. Dozens of times he has aided 
in rescuing persons carried to sea in the 
surf of San Diego's beaches. 

When nine persons were dumped into 
treacherous Mission Bay Channel in 
1Q51, Hayes saved four of them. 

With a record like that, there is little 
doubt that Hayes' number will come up 
again. Of all the trusts imposed on a 
police officer, that of protecting human 
life is beyond doubt the greatest. Like 
Jack Chaney, Hayes saved one person 
from almost certain death. Chaney was 
chosen above him for a variety of reasons, 
the main one of which is San Francisco's 
Ocean Beach surf. 'Fhere are more 
treacherous beaches, but not many. 
Chaney, plunging his horse into it while 
fully clothed, was wagering his life 
against saving a life. He won. And part 
of the reason he won was because he had 
prepared for the ordeal. Both of these 
factors meant a lot. But while we are 
handing Chaney the cash we cannot help 
saying congratulations to Officer Ha>es 
. . . and better luck next time.

T WAS A BRIGHT EARLY DECEM- 
BER DAY and Lieutenant Hudner 
was flying a Korean combat mission 
alongside another plane piloted by 
Ensign Jesse Brown. A burst of flak 




which he fought to keep the fire 
away from the fatally injured en- 
sign until a rescue helicopter ar- 
rived. Today Lieutenant Hudner 
says : 

"Maybe if America had been 
strong enough to discourage ag- 
gression two years ago. my friend, 
Jesse Brown, might be alive right 
now. So might thousands more of 
our Korea dead. 

"For it's only too sadly true- 
today, in our world, weakness in- 
vites attack. And peace is only for 
the strong. 

"Our present armed forces are 
Strong— and growing stronger. But 



don't turn back the clock ! Do you- 
part toward keeping America's 
guard up by buying more . . . and 
more . . . and more United States 
Defense Bonds nou! Back us up. 
And lofielher well build the strong 
peace that all Americans desire!"

Remember that when you're buying bonds 
for defense, you're also building a per-

When In Doubt 



Always At Your Service 




From faraway 

places-more 

oil for you 



In Sumatra back in 1924, standard Oil Company of California geologists 
began mapping possible deposits of oU. But not until last year did Sumatran 
wells start adding to available oil supplies. This operation, costing some 
$62 million to date, was pioneered by Standard. It is now carried on jointly 
with The Texas Company under the name "Caltex." 



Into San Francisco Bay come tankers carrying 
Sumatran crude — returns on the gamble Standard under- 
took nearly 30 years ago. Other shipments go elsewhere 
in the world, aiding progress and adding defensive strength. 
Four friendly nations in particular benefit directly. First, of 
course, is the young Indonesian Republic, of which Sumatra 
is a part. Then Australia, Japan and the Philippines. They 
produce practically no oil of their own, but wiU be supplied 



in the near future by refineries which Caltex is helping to 
buUd. ^ And, of course, the Sumatran oil brought into this 
country helps keep you in gasoline and the many other 
petroleum products you've come to rely on. ^ The foreign 
activities of Standard Oil Company of California, typified by 
this flow of crude from faraway Sumatra, are constantly 
being expanded, as an added guarantee that petroleum 
needs of the free world will continue to be met. 



STANDARD OIL COMPANY OF CALIFORNIA plans ahead to serve you better

[E©ai'(6)isii^iL 



Originally we had this space reserved for Barney Mc- 
Donald, San Francisco's recently retired Deputy Chief of 
Police. But Barney will have to wait until May now . . . 
even if we do have to tear his story out of the dummy. 
Under the circumstances we are sure he won't mind. 

Today is Monday, April 20, 1953. It is just four days 
until the Policemen's Ball. Time for a last minute drive 
to sell tickets. But San Francisco Policemen may find it a 
little hard to sell tickets this week. There are going to be 
people who say, "What do we want to help those bums 
for? Aren't they getting enough extra dough on their 
beats?" 

There are going to be some angry officers this week . . . 
and probably for weeks to come. There are going to be 
some tearful wives who report to their policeman husbands 
that they received singularly cold treatment at their sewing 
circles or bridge clubs. And almost every officer is going 
to find some of his friends looking at him with the silent 
question in his eyes. "How about it, Mac? Are you get- 
ting any of that sugar?" Times are going to be pretty 
tough on the San Francisco Police Department. And why ? 

^Ve'll tell \ou why. All this is going to happen so a 
San Francisco newspaper can boost its lagging circulation. 
There are a lot of ways to boost circulation. The best way, 
of course, is to consistently turn out the best newspaper 
with the best news coverage in the city, day in and day out. 
People will always buy that kind of paper. But every now 
and then things go wrong. One paper lets the other get a 
little ahead of it. Then there is nothing left to do but 
resort to the timeworn tricks of the trade. 

Contests do a lot to stimulate circulation. People will 
buy a paper to find out how their kid is doing in a spelling 
contest or essay contest or golf tournament. Special bonus 
prices help. Most newspapers also have domestic science 
specialists and fashion exeperts to help sell the sheet. A 
well run pattern department can sell a lot of papers. There 
are other ways to help sell papers too numerous to mention. 
But if the paper really needs a shot in the arm there is one 
sure way to send at least your street sales booming. It 
never misses. All you have to do is start a crusade. 

On Monday, April 20, 1953 a crusade started in San 
Francisco, complete with banner heads, flaming red cuts 
and a sidebar story about the secret city. And all this 
would be all right with us if it named names and put its 
figurative finger on positive facts. But none of this has 
been done. There is not one name in the crusade story, 
not even the byline of the reporter or rewrite man who 
wrote it. The sidebar story explained all this. 



"But nobody wanted to put his name to the document — 
too dangerous, against the code of the Tenderloin, cost a 
man his illegal business maybe." 

So we have a crusade which strikes nowhere. A news- 
paper, sword in hand, leading its legions of readers up the 
blind alley of iniuiendo. It is an easy thing to do. The 
crusade will hurt no one. No one, that is, except for the 
1500 men of the San Francisco Police Department and 
their families. E\ery one of them has been branded a crook 
in the eyes of the public. 

It is an axiom that any man who wears a uniform- — 
whether he is a sailor, negro or policeman — is judged by 
the conduct of the most noticeable and, invariably, the least 
attractive of his fellows. There are bad apples in every 
barrel. The man who does not recognize this fact is pull- 
ing the old ostrich trick — hiding his head in a hole. But 
only the men in uniform suffer because of their contem- 
poraries' behavior. 

AVe of the PoLiei; axd Pe.vck Officers' Journal 
believe that every officer who is discovered taking graft or 
deliberately overlooking violations of the law should be 
punished to the fullest extent of the law. But we also 
believe that it is unjust and unfair to condemn every man 
connected with one of the most worthwhile professions 
there is for the dishonest acts of the few. 

The newspaper in question was careful to point out that 
most officers are honest. At the end of a paragraph which 
was almost lost on the bottom of page one, the somewhat 
anonymous lead story on Monday declared, "The honest 
officer — of course the vast majority — just ignores the whole 
payment scheme." Of course the next paragraph starts, 
"When the captain is crooked . . ." so you can laugh off 
that honesty line as fast as you want to. 

^Ve have had our differences of opinion with Chief 
Gaffey in the past but, no matter how we felt about them, 
there is one fact we are sure of: Chief of Police Michael 
Gaffey is as honest a man as there is in San Francisco, doing 
his best to maintain law and order in a rugged seaport city. 
And that "vast majorit>" includes about 99 percent of his 
men. 

We realize that our protest against this crusade is weak 
and perhaps futile. Our voice is a small one, lost, perhaps, 
in the roar of the metropolitan press. But we wanted to 
label this expose for what it is . . . and to say to the offend- 
ing newspaper, "Put up or shut up. Name names or admit 
that this whole thing is just a circulation stunt. And then 
call the whole thing off and start a nice, friendly essay

TRAFFIC CIRCUS 



April, 1953 



Traffic safety has become more mean- 
ingful to countless school children across 
the land because of a hardworking police 
officer and his troupe of talented dogs. 

Known as the Officer Pressley Traffic 
Safety Circus, the unique show has 
"played" to more than three million 
wide-eyed youngsters throughout the 
countr}'. It is currently touring elemen- 
tary schools under sponsorship of the 
American Trucking Associations. 



dren goes to Ernest E. Pressley, a police 
officer from Charlotte, N. C. He con- 
ceived the idea while noticing the rapt 
attention of neighborhood children in 
tricks performed by his pet setter. Press- 
ley augmented his troupe with more dogs 
and started his tour of the country. 

Leading Lady 

Eight highly trained dogs make up the 
canine cast of the Traffic Safety Circus, 



dren's favorite is Elmer, the clown, who 
manages to do everything wrong at the 
right time. 

Repetitive Technique 

The dogs perform with a series of 
props, ladders, platforms and other para- 
phernalia, each representing a factor re- 
lated to street traffic and safety rules. 
Pressley uses the repetitive technique to 
drive home his message of safety, and. 




A YOUTHFUL ADMIRER MEETS THE TRAFFIC CIRCUS STARS. 



No Dry Lecture 

Instead of the usual dry lecture tech- 
nique, kids are treated to a 40-minute 
circus, complete with music, performing 
dogs and ringmaster. Needless to say, 
they go for it in a big way, but better 
yet the show's lessons in traffic safety 
habits are well remembered. 

Credit for originating the novel 
method of teaching safety to school chil- 



keeping the kids glued to their seats by 
performing a great variety of difficult 
tricks. Each act points up the import- 
ance of traffic safety and brings real 
meaning to Pressley's slogan — "Walk 
Safe — Ride Safe — Play Safe." 

Leading lady of the show is Lassie, a 
collie well versed in safety habits. Other 
members of the troupe include Susie, 
Mig, Lady, Dot, Jingles, Annie and 
Elmer. According to Pressley, the chil- 



telling of accidents, asks the children 
how such accidents could have been pre- 
vented. 

Evidence of the Traffic Safety Circus' 
amazing success in impressing the import- 
ance of observing traffic regulations 
among school children is the constant 
flood of letters being received by the 
American Trucking Associations from 
enthusiastic parents and teachers.

Cornell Old Name In Merced 



A person would have to reach back 
more than four decades in Merced Coun- 
ty history to find the record of the first 
member of the Cornell family to hold 
the office of sheriff there. 

It was back in 1910 that S. C. Cornell 
was elected to the top law enforcement 
post in Merced County, defeating the 
incumbent John S. Swan and a fellow 
named Dooley in a hotly contested race 
for the office. 

Unfortunately death intervened with 



all hell was breaking loose in Europe. On 
the western front the Germans were lob- 
bing big shell into Paris with the aid of 
an oversized cannon they called the "Big 
Bertha" and back in what is now known 
as Iron Curtain country the Russians had 
given up trying to ward off the invading 
Prussians with pitchforks and had taken 
to fighting among themselves. 

The young fellow from Merced want- 
ed in on the act so, in 1917, he joined 
the merchant marine. That didn't last 



wants of himself and his family until 
1934. It would have continued to do 
so if there had not been a clamor by the 
citizens for him to run for sheriff. 

Cornell recollects that things were 
pretty rough in Merced County in those 
days. The county was what might have 
been called wide open and people were 
perfectly satisfied with the status quo. At 
least some people were.

Young N. L. Cornell was just a sprout 
at that time scarcely able to make his

started out on his own with a job in San

Merced and entered the banking busi- 
ness. 

Later Lucius Cornell started a hay and 
grain business which took care of the

segment of the population. 

Sheriff Cornell did not look on things 
in quite the same light. He felt that he

was cut out for him. Enough persons

In the spring of 1950, the new Cit\

which formerly comprised the old head- 
quarters are now used as a squad room,

Over a period of three years the De-

15 to 22 men and two additional bu-

force to the standards recommended by

Garrity Elected In Santa Clara 



William J. Garrity, 47, a peace officer 
for 18 years, was chosen Chief of the 
Santa Clara police department in a City 
of Santa Clara election held on Tuesday, 
April 7. 

Garrity won the office in a three way 
contest. His nearest opponent, John J. 
O'Neill, former Santa Clara police chief, 
was defeated by only 84 votes. 

Third man seeking the position was 
Ir\ing R. Cabral, former Santa Clara 
Township constable and now a Santa 
Clara County deputy sheriff. 

Ex-Santa Barbara Chief 

Garrity, former chief of the Santa 
Barbara police department, polled 1710 
votes in the balloting to top O'Neill's 
1626 and Cabral's 600. 

Santa Clara, a community of 15,000 
population, had 6931 registered voters, 
57 per cent — or 3941 — of whom cast 
their ballots. 

The new Santa Clara chief of police 
entered law enforcement work in Santa 
Barbara in 1931 as a patrolman. He was 
a detective sergeant at the time he was 
named chief of the Santa Barbara de- 
partment in 1936. 

Mayor Candidate 

After three years as head of the depart- 
ment, Garrity was assigned to new du- 
ties. He subsequently resigned in 1941 
to become a candidate for mayor — an of 
fice he lost by about 1400 votes. 

After short service as a special investi- 
gator for Santa Barbara County District 
Attorney's office, he was hired by Bethle- 
hem Steel Corporation to direct its police 
force. 

From 1946 to 1949, he organized and 
directed the police department for U. S. 
Naval Contractors on Guam. 

Returning to the Coast, he opened a 
small business in Menlo Park, which he 
later sold. 

U. C. Graduate 

At the time he came to Santa Clara 
in January, he was employed as a public 
relations man a national private investi- 
gation firm. 

Garrity is a native of Colorado and 
one of a family of six children. He at- 
tended schols in the Mountain State, in- 
cluding some courses at University of 
Colorado. 

He holds a teacher's certificate from 
University of California at Los Angeles 
which qualifies him to instruct police sub- 
jects and has completed an FBI training 
course. 



By Anne Hitt 

Garrity became chief of the Santa 
Clara department on January 20, 1953, 
when he was appointed by Santa Clara 
City Manager Joseph F. Base. 

Reorganization Program 

His duties were to carry out reorgani- 
zation of the police department of the 
Mission City in line with recommenda- 
tions container in a report on the depart- 
ment by O. W. ^Vilson, dean of crimi- 
nology at University of California in 
Berkeley. 

Wilson's report, made at request of the 
City Manager, noted that the Santa 
Clara department had poor distribution 




William Garrity 

of man hours over the day, had an inade- 
quate records system, lack of suitable 
space for headquarters, lack of suitable 
r.tandards and methods for recruitment 
and lack of a standard operating pro- 
cedure. 

New System Installed 
Since Garrity has held the position, an 
FBI records system has been installed 
and one officer assigned as records and 
fingerprint officer, manpower has been 
redistributed to provide greater number 
of officers on duty during evening and 
early morning hours, and the patrol serv- 
ice has been completely motorized. 

As a result of his work with the de- 
partment, Garrity was "drafted" by a 
group of Santa Clara citizens as a candi- 
date for chief of police. 



One peculiarity of Santa Clara city 
government is that the chief of police job 
is an elective one. The development re- 
sulted from an amendment to the city 
charter for which O'Neill and his sup- 
porters were responsible. 

Post Was Appointive 

The police chief's office as originally 
set up in Santa Clara's two-year-old city 
charter was appointive. 

Under a previous charter, it had been 
elective for many years and O'Neill had 
retained the position for three consecu- 
tive two-year terms. 

When the new charter, drawn in 
1951, went into effect on May 5, 1952, 
O'Neill failed to win appointment as 
chief of police upon the expiration of his 
term as an elected official. 

Petition Circulated 

The Acting City Manager of that 
time, A. S. Bellick, appointed as Acting 
Chief of Police Earl C. Perry, former 
assistant chief under O'Neill and a vet- 
eran of 14 years in the Santa Clara de- 
partment. 

Supporters of O'Neill then circulated 
petitions for a charter amendment and 
waged a successful campaign to restore 
the chief of police position to its elective 
status. 

Culmination of the campaign was 
voter approval of the charter amendment 
last November 4. 

New Petition.' 

The city election on April 7 was under 
the charter amendment provisions. 

Political observers in Santa Clara view 
Garrity's election as the first step toward 
a move which may end in a new proposi- 
tion going before the voters to amend 
the charter back to its original wording 
and once more make the office of chief of 
police an appointive one. 

This is one of the strongest recom- 
mendations concerning the police depart- 
ment and its operation put forward by 
Prof. Wilson in his report. 

O'Neill Veteran Officer 

The defeated former Santa Clara 
chief, O'Neill, had been in the Santa 
Clara department since 1935 when he 
was appointed as a patrolman. 

He was first elected chief of the de- 
partment in 1946 by a narrow margin of 
six votes. 

His election followed the retirement 
of George Peter Fallon, who had headed

In Chief J. R. Blackmore's trwenty-

these past weeks. 

As a cohost with Howard Hornbuckle, 
Santa Chira County Sheriff, for the 
thirty-third annual convention of the 
Peace Officers' Association of the State 
of California, it's easy to see the volumes 
of work necessary to produce a success- 
ful convention. 

Moves Toward Improvement 

Se\en >ears have passed since J. R. 
HIackmore became Chief of Police for 
the San Jose Department and ever-in- 
creasing steps are being taken by him to- 
ward producing a a better and more 
efficient operating police organization. 
Greater facilities, both for office and 
prison, are to be available in the near 
future. 




Chief Blackmore 

An interesting feature of the San Jose 
Police Department is the large percent- 
age of police graduates of the San Jose 
State College Police School working 
there. 

Professor Blackmore 

Approximately 41 percent either grad- 
uated from or are at present instructing 
at San Jose State. Chief Blackmore per- 
sonally teaches "Police Administration," 
a required course for all penoIog\- ma- 
jors. Traffic engineering, juvenile delin- 
quency, criminal investigation and field 



By Bu.L Walker 

work are other courses instructed by 
the San Jose City Police Department 
"profs." 

One recent major change made by the 
San Jose Police Department was the 
combining of the juvenile and detective 
departments. This move made available 
another position with a title of Chief of 
Detectives ( a rating higher than a cap- 
tain). ']"he new set up will better coor- 
dinate the activities of the two depart- 
ments. 

Auxiliary Police 

Closely knitted into the police depart- 
ment's activities are the active San Jose 
Auxiliary Policemen. This group is 
headed and engineered by Director E. S. 
Pracua, and Chief of Staff Leland M. 
Baruck. The auxiliary held twelve meet- 
ings last year to discuss business policies 
of the department. San Jose's Auxiliary 
Police participated in some sixty-two spe- 
cial assignments consisting of policing 
athletic events, parades, celebrations, and 
an\ large gatherings of people, greatly 
aiding the San lose Police regulars in 
1952. 

San Jose is fortunate in ha\ing Janet 
Hickey, a graduate of San Jose State's 
Police School, in the department. Janet 
has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Police 
W^ork. She also holds the distinction of 
being the only graduate police woman in 
the department. 

Unity 

An outstanding feature of the San 
Jose Police Department is the closeness, 
unity and support shown by the depart- 
ment of San Jose and the citizens of San 
Jose in working together on enforcement 
and delinquency problems. 

In 1951 the Citizen's Advisory Com- 
mittee of the San Jose Police Depart- 
ment was activated when a representatixe 
group of people composed of the Clergy, 
Merchant's Association, Parent Teachers 
Association, Dads' Clubs, the Press, ra- 
dio, labor, veterans' organizations, city 
administrations, the district attorney's of- 
fice and the police department, met in an 
effort to aiil law enforcement in the com- 
munity. It was decided by the commit- 
tee to act as an advisory group only and 
not as a pressure group. 

High Point 

Perhaps the high point of that initial 
meeting was the reluctance on the part 
of the group to interfere or dictate pol- 
icy to the police repartment — thus elimi- 
nating any conflict in the normal func- 
tions of police activities. 



The committee decided that its prime 
objective would be to aid in the control 
of conditions that are deemed detrimen- 
tal to the normal way of living and to 
aid in the suppression of criminal activi- 
ties, corruption, and vice conditions. 

Code Adopted 

Ihe committee even went further, 
drawing up a code of objectives to be a 
pattern in the principal operation of the 
organization. 1 hey are as follows: 

1. Poster a closer relationship be- 
tween the police department and the 
citizenry. 

2. Stimulate interest in public edu- 
cational programs designed to pro\ ide 
to the individual the knowledge that 
will enable him to protect his life and 
property. 




Barton Collins 
Chief of Detectives 

3. Pooling pertinent and factual 
information that might be used by the 
police department in its endeavor to 
effectivelv control detrimental influ- 



4. Conveying to the public, infor- 
mation on measures that have been 
taken by the police department in an 
effort to control vice conditions and 
criminal activity that have been re- 
ported or discovered by police per- 
sonnel.

PISTOL POINTING 



The gram! 1953 season opened at the 
S. F. Police Range at Lake Merced Sun- 
day, February 15, with 146 shooters 
having the time of their lives in the 
glorious sunshine. Some of the statistical 
personnel were complaining about the 
"minutemen" and by that we found out 
they mean the men who rush up to the 
windows the last minute to purchase 
their squadding tickets. The ticket of-

"Hey, Doc." 

I tried not to hear him. I looked 
around for something else to do, but for 
the moment everything was quiet. There 
was no escape. 

"Doc." 

His helmet had slipped forward across 
his face and he didn't appear to have the 
strength to straighten it. I knelt behind 
him and slipped it back so that it pil- 
lowed and protected his head. I reached 
for his pulse automatically. 

"Doc." 

"Yeah, kid." His pulse must have 
been about 180. He was a baby. Eigh- 
teen. I found ovit later. Barely eighteen. 

"Will you straighten my leg?" 

"In a while, kid. It isn't ready yet. 
We'll know when it's ready." 

"Okay, Doc. But please hurry. It's 
ail cramped and twisted. You've got to 
straighten it." 

"^Vhich leg, kid ?" 

"The right one." 

I wanted to cry. I could feel my stom- 
ach twisting through a series of impossi- 
ble contortions and all the pity and com- 
passion the war had left in me welled 
up in my throat and eyes. I couldn't 
straighten his right leg. I couldn't even 
find his right leg. 

"We'll straighten it, kid." 

The first shell had landed right in the 
middle of eighteen of them. The first 
man, a corporal, and the last man, a 
corpsman, were unharmed, but the mid- 
dle si.xteen were shattered. The kid was 
the worst. The worst of the living. All 
he had of his right leg was about two 
inches of thigh. The left was splintered 
into a thousand fragments just above the 
ankle. It wasn't connected to the rest of 
his leg. It didn't even look real. 

"Now, Doc." 

"Later, kid. We'll have to wait and 
work on it a bit." 

"Is it broken, Doc?" 

"Maybe. You can't be sure. I'm only 
a corpsman, kid." 

"That's okay, Doc." 

I pinched the bicep of his right arm 
and squeezed another syrette of morphine 
into it. A full half grain. 



SILENTLY TO REST 



Rv \Valter R. Hecox 



EDITOR'S NOTE 

Normally the Police and Peace Offi- 
cers' Journal does not use fiction. After 
all, it is a trade magazine of sorts and 
as such has enouijli material to vsorry 
about teilhout taking time out for tlie 
•world of make believe. This monlli, 
Iwwever, we are making an exception. 

There is a reason for the exception. 
Last month ive gave our inside back 
cover over to a United Slates Treasury 
Department advertising promoting the 
sale of savings bonds. He ivish wc could 
do this every month. Bui the inside back 
cover, the inside front cover and page 
tivo are the only pages suitable for such 
an ad. They are the most valuable pages 
in the book. IVe simply cannot afford to 
give them away every month. So we hit 
on a plan. This time the advertisement 
for United States Savings bonds is ap- 
pearing with a list of sponsors on the 
opposite page, H'e are grateful lo the 
firms which sponsored the copy. Mean- 
while, it seemed that we too should make 
a contribution. Hence the story. 

In a sense, this story is not fiction. 
Every bit of action which appears in 
these pages happened on a hill on Bou- 
gainville Island just three days before 
Thanksgiving in 1943. It is necessarily 
condensed and must be called fiction. But 
il is not exaggerated. On the contrary, it 
is toned down if anything. 

This is not a pleasant story. IVe are 
sure, however, that if you start it you 
will read il to the end. It was sold first 
lo Esquire magazine August 21, 1945. 
Shortly thereafter IP'orld H'ar II ended 
and the story became obsolete. Two 
years later the author received permis- 
sion from the magazine to republish it. 

The story is no longer obsolete. The 
same thing is happening in a different 
place. Not every month or every year, 
but every day. The end of this story will 
take you lo our inside back cover. It' hen 
you finish the story, read the Treasury 
Department advertisement . . . and if 
you do not want this slory to be an end- 
less one . . . BUY THOSE BONDS. 



Even with the tan his flesh was color- 
less and lifeless. More like putty than 
like flesh. He didn't feel the needle. He 
didn't know I touched him. I felt his 
pulse again and it was thin and thready 
... so thin I had to concentrate my 
whole attention on it to feel it. 

We had crossed the river about ten 
o'clock that morning. We were sched- 
uled to take the hill by three o'clock. I 
heard the colonel talking to division head- 
quarters over the walkie talkie. He had 



a voice like a bull. You could hear him 
clearly fifty yards away. He was a good 
battalion commander, but a noisy one. 
He was talking to a general. 

"So far so good — Yes general — three 
o'clock — we'll be there, general — we'll 
be there if we have to fight our way 
through the whole damn Imperial army." 

He meant it. He would have tried it. 
He was an old Marine. And Marines 
are either bra\e men or they have noth- 
ing to live for. I don't know which. But 
they act like brave men. We only ran 
into part of the Imperial army. 

They were waiting for us on top of 
the hill. They expected us, but they 
didn't expect us on their flank. It was a 
brilliant maneuver. We went smack up 
against the face of the hill and then the 
whole battalion made a right angle turn 
in the jungle. A large body of men isn't 
supposed to be able to do that. But we 
did it. 

We waded through the kunai grass on 
Guadalcanal for days learning how. AVe 
lay on our bellies and smothered. Ambu- 
lances ran in a steady stream taking heat 
exhaustion cases to sick bay. But the 
heat exhaustion cases lived. They lived 
to make a right angle turn on Bougain- 
ville. And they lived after the>' had 
made it. 

Yager went over the brow of the hill 
first. Yager was about six feet square 
and he went over the brow of the hill 
with a BAR at his hip. A Jap with a 
Nambu was waiting in a foxhole. He 
opened fire. 

The impact must have knocked Yager 
back six feet. Then the deeper roar of 
the BAR sounded above the chatter of 
the Nambu. Almost immediately the 
Nambu was silenced. But the BAR 
didn't stop. It roared on until the clip 
was empty and then spoke in shorter 
bursts. 

In a moment Yeager was joined by 
riflemen who added their fire to his. 
They tossed a few hand grenades. A 
dozen. Maybe fifteen. Then the hill 
was ours. The Jap resistance was feeble, 
almost non-existent. AVe had ten wound- 
ed. One of them was Yager. 

When he was sure the situation was 
under control he turned around and fair-

No More Sheepherders 



The modern Santa Ana Police Depart- 
ment which functions efficiently in the 
Southern California toda>' is a far cry 
from the infant organization which ex- 
isted almost 30 years ago when Chief of 
Police Boyd A. Hershey started work as 
a patrolman in the young department. 

In those days being a policeman on the 
Santa Ana force meant working eight 
hours a day seven days a week with no 
sick leave, holidays or other benefits. In 
addition to this the officers had the doubt- 
ful privilege of furnishing their own 
badges, equipment and uniforms.

lation city. Total a total of 64 men pro- 
tect the life and property of over 50,000 
people in the city. 

7 he roads and streets have been im- 
proved, enabling officers to answer calls 
more promptly. 

Varied Tasks 

The well developed coordination of 
the Federal, State and County agencies 
with the City department in solving 
crimes helps make the department more 
efficient. 

During Chief Hershey 's long career he

automobiles, suppressing disturbances, 
giving aid, relief and information as the 
circumstances require. Ihey are the city's 
active, open guarantee of orderly govern-

by persuasion, if necessary, by more strin- 
gent means.

The modern communications system 
found its start then with a single red light 
located at Fourth and Main Streets 
which summoned the officers to the sta-

duties.

who was chasing her down the street

of a tombstone found in the downtown 
area. 

Perhaps the most important division of 



Santa Ana's patrol division is the back- 
bone of the force. It is the largest unit, 
with some men being assigned from it to 
traffic, tletective and jmenile bureaus.

The meeting was held at the Chez 
^'onne Restaurant and a delicious dinner 
was served. Policewoman Nancy Bourne 
of the Mountain View Police Depart- 
ment was chairman of the arrangement^ 
for the evening, and she had secured the 
meeting place and also two good speak- 
ers, whom she introduced. 

She first introduced Special Agent of 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation Ra\' 
Quinn, who gave an interesting and edu- 
cational speech, and then she introduced 
expolicewoman Kate Sullivan, who is re- 
tired from the San Francisco Police De- 
partment. Mrs. Sullivan gave a delight- 
ful talk of her experiences while serving 
on the San Francisco Police Department. 
Policewoman Bourne also introduced her 
boss, the Chief of Police of Mountain 
View, who gave the group a hearty wel- 
come and extended an invitation to all 
present to visit their new jail. After the 
meeting was adjourned the Chief of 
Police and Policewoman Bourne escorted 
the group on a very interesting tour of 
the jail. Members and friends who went 



nn the expedition to the new jail found 
it was e\erything the Chief had said 
about it and were impressed by the up to 
date facilities of the building and equip- 
ment. They congratulated the Chief and 
Policewoman Bourne on their fine new 
facilities. 

First Vice President Rose Milestein 
extended a welcome to all present and 
asked each member to introduce her guest 
for the evening. The business meeting 
was called ot order by President Florence 
\ViIson and much discussion centered 
around two items: the coming conven- 
tion and the selection of a name for the 
regular bulletin. 

President Florence Wilson also ad- 
\ised the members that the Chamber of 
Commerce had agreed to print only one 
program for the convention, and that the 
Women Peace Officers would go on the 
same program with the Men Peace Of- 
ficers. Following much discussion it was 
decided that the AVomen Peace Officers 
Association of California should make 
an attempt to ha\e their own program 
printed.

The next regular meeting of the 
Northern Section of the Women Peace 
Officers will be held in Oakland, Cali- 
fornia. 

President Florence ^^'ilson thanked 
the group for the courtesies shown her 
and for the support they have given her 
so far this year. She asked every member 
to chip in and do their utmost to make 
this coming convention a memorable one. 

FOLLOW THESE RULES 

-Motorists feel they are well acquaint- 
ed with the rules of safe driving but here 
are a few simple reminders from the 
National Automobile Club designed to 
make motoring safer and more enjo\able. 

Obey nil traffic signs. Be watchful for 
them and observe them fully. They are 
placed there for the motorists' safety. 

Passiny on hills. A most dangerous 
traffic sin. The double line is for the 
motorist's protection and should never 
be crossed unless so directed by a traffic 
officer. 

Drive slrnvly in traffic. Sp>eed in ur- 
ban areas should be reduced to cope with 
surrounding conditions. 

Right-of-ivay. ^Vhen a question arises 
as to priority at unguarded intersec- 
tions, the wise motorists let the other car 
through. 

Sol/cr driving. Even a little liquor 
dulls the mental faculties, blurs vision 
and slows down reaction time. 

Pass uhcn safe. Passing should be 
done only when it is possible to do so 
without endangering the lives of others 
and where there is room to get back in 
line. 

keep distance. Keeping a safe and 
proper distance from the car ahead is a 
good way to keep out of trouble. 

Signal akcays. Arm signals should be 
given with the full arm. The driver be- 
hind may not be a mind reader. 

A((7> //; line. Driving in the right 
hand lane and using the left hand lane 
for passing onh', is the law. It should 
always be strictly observed. 

Sportsmanship. Courtesy when driv- 
ing pays big dividends in safet\. The 
Golden Rule is a good safety rule. 

Skidding. A danger which can be re- 
duced by slow driving on wet pavements 
or when sand or loose gravel is on the 
surface of the road. Sudden turns, sud- 
den stops or too quick acceleration can 
cause skidding. 

Concentration. Driving is a full-time 
job requiring the full attention of the 
person at the wheel.

OFFICER OF THE MONTH 



liy J- W. Wilson, Sergeant 
University of California Police 



On February 5, 1953, Officer Robert 
R. Ludden, 27, of the University of 
California Police Department, Berkeley, 
California, apprehended and placed un- 
der arrest Douglas Eugene Ivance, the 
person allegedly responsible for the 
armed robbery of the Dwight Way 
branch of the Bank of America. 

Officer Ludden had just completed an 
escort assignment and was cruising in the 
general direction of the University Me- 
morial stadium. He stopped his patrol 
car in the parking lot at the north end 
of the stadium and watched the vehicle 
traffic moving along Gayley Road. Pre- 
paring to move out into the line of traffic 
he slipped the car into gear when the 
dispatcher for the Berkeley Police De- 
partment put out a "stand-by all cars" 
radio call. Seconds later the dispatcher 
transmitted to all cars an armed robbery 
report received from the Bank of Amer- 
ica, Dwight Way and Shattuck Avenue 
Branch. A description of the bandit and 
the car used by him in leaving the scene 
was noted by Ludden. 

About twenty minutes later, at 2 :20 
P.M., a 1938 black, two-door Chevrolet 
sedan passed the officer's parking point. 
The driver was a young man wearing a 
blue shirt. These points coincided with 
the description broadcast in the original 
alarm. Confusing, however, was the 
fact that this car bore license plates 
while the robber's car did not. 

Falling in behind the Chevrolet, Lud- 
den pondered the possibility of the plates 
being placed on the car after the com- 
mission of the crime. Pulling up a little 
closer he noticed that the body of the 
vehicle, in the license area, was wiped 
clean in contrast to the rest of the car. 
This indicated, to him, that someone had 
recently been tampering with or had at- 
tached license plates to the vehicle. 

Ludden had by this time followed the 
suspected car about ten blocks and he 
was now out of the heavy traffic area. 
He decided that he would stop the car 
and question its driver. Having followed 
the Berkeley police dispatcher's radio in- 
structions to his officers, Ludden knew 
that none of the Berkeley police cars 
were in the area. 

Deciding that it was now or never, he 
picked up his microphone and called 
KMA 550. When the dispatcher an- 
swered Ludden advised him that he was 
stopping the suspected car and driver at 
Euclid and Virginia Avenues and re- 



OFFICER OF THE MONTH 

Officer Robert R. Ludden be- 
longs to a police department which 
is so small and specialized that most 
of us do not even remember it ex- 
ists except during football season or 
if we have to visit the University of 
California campus between seasons. 
Ordinarily his duties are to patrol 
and maintain law and order on a 
college campus, a job which, in the 
most part, consists of seeing that 
prankish students behave them- 
selves. 

It is a large college campus — not 
in area but in population — and pa- 
trolling it is not a small job. Nev- 
ertheless, one does not expect the 
college campus officers to run 
around catching bank robbers. 
Rowdy raiders from Stanford, yes. 
\outhful students whose zest for 
life gets out of line. And maybe a 
burglar or so. All this takes enough 
of the college officer's time. Bank 
robbers, however, are a little out of 
the question. There just aren't any 
banks worth robbing on college 
campuses. Not even on the massive 
University of California campus. 
And to tell the truth the bank rob- 
ber Officer Ludden caught was not 
on the U. C. campus. He came too 
close to it, though. Too close for 
his own good, that is. Apparently 
things were quiet on the campus 
that evening. Quiet enough for 
Officer Ludden to pause and watch 
traffic. Quiet enough for him to 
spot a familiar license number. 

The college policeman's actions 
from then on were, in the collective 
mind of the Police and Peace 
Officers' Journal, above and 
beyond the call of duty. Ludden 
acted with rare good judgment in 
a situation which he could not nor- 
mally be expected to meet. He even 
extracted a confession from the 
holdup man during the short inter- 
val between the time of the capture 
and the arrival of the Berkeley po- 
licemen. The Police and Peace 
Officers' Journal is proud to 
present this officer with a Certifi- 
cate of Merit and $50 defense bond 
for his outstanding action. 



quested assistance. Waiting long enough 
to have his message acknowledged, he 
turned on his siren switch and proceeded 
to make the stop. 

The driver of the suspected car im- 
mediately stopped and quickly got out of 
the car. Ludden drew his revolver and 
commanded the suspect to stand where 
he was. Searching the suspect's person 
produced nothing but lying on the front 
seat of the car, under an army type 
Eisenhower jacket, were a toy pistol and 
a considerable amount of currency. Of- 
ficer Ludden interrogated the suspect, 
who admitted his responsibility for the 
robbery. At this time Berkeley police 
officers arrived at the scene and Ivance 
was turned over to them. 

On February 27th Judge George B. 
Harris, presiding in the San Francisco 
Federal Court, sentenced Douglas Eu- 
gene Ivance, 23, to five years in Federal 
prison for robbing the Dwight ^Vay 
Branch of the Bank of America. 

Officer Ludden has been commended 
by Captain Frank E. Woodward, Uni- 
versity Police Department ; James H. 
Corley, Superintendent of Police, Uni- 
versity of California ; Chief John D. 
Holstrom, Berkeley Police Department, 
and by Director John Edgar Hoover of 
the Federal Bureau of In\ estigation who 
wrote, in part, that: "the alertness and 
initiative displayed by Patrolman Lud- 
den were in the highest traditions of the 
law enforcement profession." 

Robert Richard Ludden was born at 
Berkeley, California, on January 2, 1926, 
the son of Helen and Everett Ludden. 
He received his education in the Berke- 
ley schools from which he graduated in 
1944. His father, who was head assayer 
in the United States Mint in San Fran- 
cisco before his retirement and subse- 
quent death, taught Bob early in life to 
respect the badge of a police officer. 

After working briefly as a grocery 
clerk, auto and aircraft mechanic, he ap- 
plied for the position of police officer at 
the University of California and was 
appointed to the force on September 25, 
1947. He has attended many in training 
police schools and is looked upon as a 
"good cop" by his brother officers and the 
citizens he comes in contact with. He 
is married to the former Marceline 
Hibschle. The couple live at 1694 Ox- 
ford Street, Berkeley.

TRAFFIC TOLL 



Page IS 



Traffic accidents claimed 620 lives in 
1*552 in the nine Bay Area counties, ac- 
cording to a report compiled by the San 
Francisco Chapter of the National Safety 
Council. 

This traffic figure is only slightly 
lower than the 671 deaths in traffic re- 
corded for the same area in 1951, and 
clearly shows that there is still a great 
need for safe driving practices and aware- 
ness of hazards on the part of every 
motorist and pedestrian. 

Fatalities by counties for both >ears 
are as follows: 

1951 1952 

County Poputatioit Fatalities Fatalities

accidents on the bay Bridge in San Fran- 
cisco or Alameda Counties, the San 
Francisco on-ramps, or the East Shore 
Highway e.xtending to San Pablo Ave- 
nue in Richmond in Contra Costa 
County. This entire area is a separate 
California Highway Patrol Squad Area, 
and is not compiled by any other agency. 
Fatalities in this area and on the Bay 
Bridge were: 21 in 1951 and 19 in 
1952.) 

(**Includes the Golden Gate Bridge, 
including San Francisco approaches.

ly swaggered down the hill. He pointed 
to a hole in the front of his thigh about 
half way up. 

"Hey, Doc. Will -you take this slug 
out of my leg so I can go back up there ?" 

Across the hill we could hear scattered 
shots. There were still plenty of Japs 
around. A thin trickle of blood was run- 
ning from the hole in Yager's thigh down 
to his ankle. I was putting a bandage on 
a man who had been nicked in the side. 
Further down the hill the doctor was 
working on a man who had been hit in 
the stomach. He was pretty sick. 

"Wait a minute. I'll let the doctor see 
it and then we'll send you back." 

"I don't want to go back. Just take 
out the slug." 

I looked up at him. He was serious. 
He could sleep in a cot that night. A 
nice clean cot with blankets and every- 
thing where it was almost safe. But he 
didn't want to. He wanted to stay on 
the hill. A mortar shell landed back by 
the river. 

"It may be cracked," I answered. That 
was the easiest answer. 

"To hell with it. Take out the slug." 

"Sit down, Yager." 

"Goddammit, Doc. Take out the 
slug." 

"Sit down. Yager. I won't send you 
back up there. If the doctor wants to, 
that's okay with me." 

"You go to hell." The big Marine 
looked belligerent. He started to nio\e 
back up the hill. There was a lieutenant 
standing nearby. I looked at him. 

"Stop that man." 

"Why?" 

"He's wounded. Do you want to 
waste him on this stinking hill ?" 

Another mortar shell landed. Closer 
in but more to the left. We couldn't tell 
xvhose they were yet. They could have 
hpen our eighty-ones landing short. The 
lieutenant shouted at Yager. 

"Come back here and wait for the 
doctor," 

Yager turned wearily. He looked 
comnletely disgusted. 

"Yes, sir." He sat down. Another 
mortar shell landed. This time it was 
shorter and to the right. The doctor or- 
dered Yager and the other nine wounded 
men back with two corpsmen to care for 
them. They were all walking wounded, 
and they all looked relieved. All except 
Yager. He just looked mad. The last I 
saw of him he was helping one of his 
wounded buddies down the hill. He was 
masnificent. 

The next mortar shell that landed we 
knew was Japanese. It passed directly 
overhead and we could hear its strange

whisper. Ihey can say what they want 
about the sound of a mortar shell in 
Hight. To me it sound like the flight of 
a quail. It landed far back in the canyon. 
rhe>' were searching for us blindly. 

Except for a few scattered shots every- 
thing was quiet. I was lying flat on my 
back between a couple of communications 
men just below the military crest of the 
hill. We hadn't attempted to set up a 
perimeter of defense yet, and the men 
were all pretty well bunched up. The\ 
were tired from the climb. 

We didn't think much about it when 
we saw the flare go up. We knew what 
it was for. A white flare indicating that 
we had taken the hill. The shell landed 
about two minutes later. It landed about 
thirr\' yards awav, but off the top of the 
hill. " 

"Jeez. That flare was all they need- 
ed," said one of the communications men. 
We rolled over on our stomachs and 
waited, our faces against the dirt. I 
thought I heard a groan. 

"Did you hear someone yell?" 

The communications man shook his 
head. 

"You're dreaming. Doc." 

"Maybe I ought to go see." I didn't 
want to. I wanted to lie where I was, 
close against the dirt on the military crest 
of the hill. The communications man 
grinned. 

"You're crazy if you do." 

"I know it, Mac. We were crazy 
when we came up this hill." 

"Sure, we're all crazy. You stay here, 
Doc. I might be able to use a corpsman 
any time now." 

"I don't know. I thought I heard a 
groan." 

"Baloney, Doc. You stay here. " 

Even below the crest of the hill we 
could feel the next shell. The noise of 
the explosions rang in our ears and the 
dust bit at our nostrils. It landed about 
fifteen yards away through the bushes. I 
didn't have to wonder this time. There 
wasn't any question about what had hap- 
pened. 

"Good luck, Doc." The communica- 
tions man grinned. I gathered my legs 
under me in a sort of sprinter's crouch 
and paused for a moment. If I had to 
go I wanted to go fast. But I didn't 
want to go. I didn't want to be like the 
people who were making that noise. 

"I'll need it, Mac." I threw myself 
over the crest of the hill and started back 
up the trail. It was longer that way but 
more accurate. The deep, sobbing howls 
of the wounded men guided me. They 
didn't sound like men anymore.

The faltering whisper of another shell 
sent me flopping earthward. I hugged 
the earth waiting for it to land. Another 
one I hadn't heard coming landed about 
twenty yards below the crest of the hill 
and exploded harmlessly. It was dead on 
the range, but wide. 

"Doc." 

The voice was coming out of a Jap 
foxhole about two feet to the right of me. 
I looked up cautiously. A pale-faced 
Marine was sitting there with a dead 
Jap, staring at his chest. 

"I think they got me, Doc." 

A ragged wound about four inches 
long ran down the center of his chest. 
He was staring stupidly at the blood 
flowing from it, scared stiff. 

"Who got you?" 

"The mortar. I was standing at the 
edge of this foxhole when it hit and it 
knocked me right into it." 

I lowered myself into the hole. The 
wound was deep, but just over the 
sternum. The bone had stopped any seri- 
ous penetration. I cleaned of? the wound 
with a piece of bandage and reached for 
sulfanilamide powder and a battle dress- 
ing. 

"It isn't serious, Mac." 

"The hell it isn't." 

"You'll live, Mac." I tied the battle 
dressing over the wound and reached for 
a casualty tag. The whole operation took 
about a minute. It was a long minute. 
Sixty seconds, but they were life or death. 
I could hear the deep, inhuman sobbing 
again and footsteps hurrying from it. 

"Doc. For chrissake, hurry up, Doc. 
There's a man back here with both legs 
shot off." 

Standing over the foxhole, his face 
covered with dust and sweat, the Marine 
was trembling like a frightened rabbit. I 
dronned the casualty tag and stood up. 

"Where?" 

"Just around the band. Hurry, Doc. 
It's hell back there." 

I threw a parting glance at the man 
with the chest wound. He grinned 
weaklv. 

"Go ahead. Doc. I'll be all right." 

I ran around the bend and stopped 
short. It was only a few yards, about 
twenty feet altogether. Twenty feet be- 
tween the threshold of hell and a blood- 
soaked inferno. It must have been a full 
half hour before I realized fully what 
had happened. All I could see at first was 
the kid. 

His eyes were closed and his mouth 
was half open, and he was breathing fast, 
but so lightly it was barely noticeable. 
Lying there in the late afternoon sun he 
looked very young. He opened his eyes 
when I knelt beside him.

"Hello, Doc." 

1 only knew him by sight. 1 hey had 
told nie he was an eightball, and he prob- 
ably was. 

"Hello, kid." 

I pulled a thick rubber tourniquet from 
my pocket and reached for the stub of his 
right leg. He was a kid. Seventeen when 
he joined the Marine corps and away 
from home for the first time in his life. I 
lifted the two-inch stump and he moaned 
loudly. 

"Take it easy. Doc." 

"Okay, kid." 

I jammed a half grain of morphine 
into his arm and tried again. He 
screamed with pain. 

"I can't stand it, Doc." 

"You can stand anything, kid. That's 
the hell of it." 

I tried again. I knew I had to lift that 
stump, but it was an awful thing to have 
to do. The sweat was dripping into my 
eyes. He screamed and writhed. I looked 
up desperately. The chief was working 
frantically about six feet away. I wasn't 
aware that anyone else was hurt until I 
saw him. 

"Chief. For chrissake hold this guy. 
I've got to get this tourniquet on." 

The chief looked at me and looked at 
the kid. 

"Give him a shot of morphine and let 
him alone. You're wasting your time." 

"I've got to get this tourniquet on." 

"He'll never make it. ^Vork on some- 
one who has a chance to live." 

"He has a chance." 

"\ou're crazy. You know your job. 
Work on somebody you can save. That 
guy is as good as dead." 

"Shut up. Dammit, shut up." 

I lifted the stub with a furious jerk 
and thrust the tubing around it. The kid 
howled and sobbed while I pulled the 
tourniquet tight and knotted it. The 
chief looked up again. 

"Give him another shot of morphine." 

"He's had half a grain." 

"It won't hurt him. Give him an- 
other syrette." 

I jammed a second shot into the kid's 
arm. He quieted while I worked on his 
left leg. It was easier there. He didn't 
seem to know I was touching him. I left 
him there and started working down the 
line of wounded men. They were easy 
to find. I looked up at the chief. 

"Sorry, chief." 

The chief grinned. He was holding a 
compress against a Marine's neck. The 
cartoid artery must have been severed. 

"It's okay. I feel the same way."

He looked at his patient. The Marine 
was half sitting beside a mound of dirt, 
his head cocked to one side, staring pa- 
tiently out into space. He spoke in low, 
calm tones. 

"How am I doing, Chief?" 

"Okay, but I can't stay here all day. 
Listen. I've got to work on somebody 
else. Somebody may die if I don't. Can 
you hold this thing?" 

"Sure, chief." 

"Can you hold it as tight as I am?" 

"Sure." 

"Okay. Remember, when you grab 
this, you're taking your life in your 
hands. If you let go, you'll bleed to 
death. If you loosen it, you'll bleed to 
death. Do you understand ?" 

"Sure, Chief." 

He took the compress and the chief 
moved on. I was working on a kid with 
a hole in his arm and a wounded leg. The 
wound in his arm was huge, but he was 
quiet and patient. I didn't notice any- 
thing unusual. I had to lean over pretty 
far to get at him. I didn't notice why. 

I finished the dressings and looked up. 
A stretcher bearer was standing over me, 
leaning on his rifle. 

"Can I help, Doc?" 

"Not for a while, Mac." 

"How many dead. Doc?" 

"None. Nobody was killed." 

"None, Doc?" The stretcher bearer 
looked puzzled. 

"I haven't noticed any." 

"Well, how about that fellow you 
were just leaning over?" 

"He'll be okay. He was just hit in the 
arm." I was puzzled. Together the 
chief and I had worked over about eight 
men in twenty minutes. AVe had four 
plasma bottles going. The stretcher 
bearer looked at me as though I was 
crazy. 

"I mean the one you leaned over to 
get at him." 

I stared stupidly at the ground. A 
Marine was lying about two inches from 
my knees, staring straight at me. 

"Are you hurt, Alac?" I asked stu- 
pidly. The Alarine had blue grey eyes. 
They didn't blink. He didn't move. I 
picked up his arm to feel his pulse and 
noticed a great gaping wound. It wasn't 
bleeding. Then I got the idea. 
"I guess he's dead." 
The stretcher bearer nodded. 
"I thought so, Doc." 
I sat back on my haunches and took in 
the scene. There were five dead men 
within a few yards of me. Silent, muti- 
lated lumps of flesh. Four of them were 
lying in a row touching each other. The 
fifth was ofT to one side. They hadn't 
made any noise, so I hadn't noticed them.

The}' had died quickly, painlessly. Fer- 
ris, the corpsinaii who had been with the 
squad, was taking their finger prints and 
dog tags. I looked at the stretcher bearer. 

"I guess I've been busy." 

"I guess so, Doc." 

1 wandered back by the kid. Ferris 
had poured some plasma into him. It 
had helped, but not much. Not enough. 
I reached for another bottle and twisted 
the key into the can. The kid was watch- 
ing me. 

"Doc." 

"Yeah, kid." 

"What did the chief mean?" 

"Nothing, kid." 

1 didn't think he had heard him. It 
didn't seem possible. He shouldn't have 
been able to hear or feel anything e.xcept 
pain. 

"Am I going to die, Doc?" 

"Hell, no, kid." I fitted the needle 
into the bottles and shook them while 
they mixed. 

"He said I was going to die. Doc." 

"Not you, kid. He was talking about 
someone else." 

His body was thin after months in the 
tropics. It was a boy's body. Loose 
gangling and flat. He would have been 
a good man. 

"Have I got a leg. Doc?" 

"Sure, kid." 

Now he was almost dead. He was the 
shattered remains of a man with a heart 
and a voice and a small part of a mind, 
but that was all. He was still breathing 
and the heart was still beating. 

"Are you sure, Doc?" 

"Sure, kid." 

I couldn't help looking at the stump 
where his right leg had been. That god- 
awful, beveled, flat-ended stump that 
looked as though his leg had been cut 
away by a pair of giant pruning shears. 
It was such a short stump. 

"Then straighten it. Doc." 

"In a while, kid." 

"Now, Doc." 

"Pretty soon, kid. We're not readv 
yet." 

I was trying to find a vein I could get 
a needle into . They were flat and life- 
less. He should have died instantly like 
the others, but he clung to life stub- 
bornly. I felt his pulse after I got the 
needle in, and his eyelids flickered open. 

"Doc." 

"Yeah." 

"Stick around, Doc." 

"Okay, kid." 

There wasn't any place to hang the 
bottle. I had to kneel there and hold it 
in the air. The mortar shells were still 
landing. Off the range now, but close 
enough. I wanted to flatten myself close

to the ground. I couldn't help looking at 
the shattered bodies all around me. I 
didn't want to look like them. A flat, 
metallic ping made me flinch. 

"Doc." 

"Yeah." 

"Those are twenty-fives, Doc." 

Several more went off. They sounded 
like twenty-fives but there was something 
different. A hollow, ringing sound. 

"No, kid. Those are mortars. Our 
sixties." 

"That's good. Give 'em hell, Doc." 

"Sure, kid." 

The other patients were quiet. I made 
the rounds and then came back and sat 
by the kid. A couple of hours must have 
passed. I thought about giving him an- 
other shot of plasma, but it was no good. 
There wasn't a vein left I could get a 
needle into. 

A quartermaster sergeant came over 
the brow of the hill with two of his men. 
They were carrying full sized shovels 
and a pick as well as their entrenching 
tools. 

"All finished?" I asked them. 

"So far." The sergeant answered ten- 
tatively. "I have a hell of a time keeping 
the boys on the job. They don't like 
handling them. They don't mind whole 
men, but they don't like picking up the 
pieces. One of them got sick." 

"Somebody's got to do it. We can't. 
We've got to work on the live ones. 
How would you like to work on the live 
ones? The dead ones can't scream. How 
would you like to work on the ones who 
are still screaming?" 

"I wouldn't," he answered. "I'd 
rather stay away from them altogether.

easily but that 10th was just not there 
in spite of the loud and lusty howling 
that "the 10 in tthe center, there, must 
be a double." Referee Ken Wilson stood 
on his rules book and gave poor Evar 
nine shots — and kept Evar's dollar bill. 
(However, Captain Hank Jacobs of the 
Highway Patrol put up a buck to see his 
81 and found he was right as he really 
had a double in the 10 ring. Ken lost 
that round.) 

Lost Guns 
Les Narvaez, who has been ill for sev- 
eral months, arrived with the Sacramento 
gang Sunday to see how the old shootin' 
arm was a doin'. Phil Atkinson was to 
leave Les' shootin' irons on the bench by 
the coffee shoppe but forget to, so Les 
ran all over the joint trying to locate 
said box with rapidly increasing blood

pressure and a near case of nervous ex- 
haustion. Les located the box in time to 
just get on the line but, knowing the 
temperament of shooters, we know that 
the episode cost Les at least 13 points — 
and too bad, too ! ( Not to mention the 
loss of about 13 pounds along with it.) 
Hill Markel, our kodak expert, was 
bitterly complaining about targets 10, 20, 
30 and 40 being half in the sun and half 
in the shade due to the division boards at 
each ten targets. "It's an outrage, malev- 
olent, acrimonious and all that there stuff 
an' how is a guy gonna sight his gun — in 
the shade or in the sun?" And so on for 
an hour or so. Glancing along the lines 
a few moments later we spotted Bill 
shooting on target number 10. 1 hen 
came the dawn. 

Spring Fever 

Some of us old guys will never learn 
that when that spring fever bug bites it's 
just a gentle reminder for the aged to 
remain calm and let the youth of the 
land do the springs. Such advice was not 
taken to heart by Sergeant Karl Schau- 
gaard in his seedtime of life, when he 
tramped merrily off to the snow countr\' 
with a pair of long skiis over his shoul- 
der. The officer is now hobbling around 
on crutches nursing a busted ankle and 
cursing the day he had any idea he was 
still a teenager. However, Karl was on 
the lines, crutch and all. 

And we certainly didn't like that crack 
from Corny Herb, who hasn't been to a 
match in a year or so, when he said he 
was just out slumming the day. 

The Olympic Club celebrated its 40th 
year of pistol team competition in Feb- 
ruary and celebrated by electing Harry 
Plummer as the new team captain and 
impelling force behind the group. Jim 
JVIcCue has been with the group for 
about 26 years and is their shooting 
Commissioner, with McVey as their old- 
est member and still shooting after 32 
>ears of competition. Boy, and that's a 
long time for anything, let alone shoot- 
ing.

The Oakland Matches 

As is the custom at the Oakland 
Range, the sun was brightly shining on 
opening day, Sunday, March 1, 1953, for 
the 1953 shooting season with over 185 
pistol pointers gracing the lines for a 
good start in the coming season. Last 
January the W.R.A. held their annual 
banquet and meeting with a goodly 
crowd lined up at the tables. During the 
evening the winners of the various classes 
were announced, as well as the yearly 
three-gun champion for 1952 — and if 
you guess anybody but Karl Schaugaard 
you are wrong. Karl also took the yearly 
Master class award. 

The following are the class winners: 
Expert, G. Elliott Murphy; Sharpshoot- 
er, E. L. Johnson; Marksman 1st, Bob 
Murphy; Marksman 2nd, Frank Fen- 
nessy, and Marsman 3rd is Fred Biven. 

The yearly classification and informa- 
tion booklet for 1952 is in the making 
and should be out by the first part of 
April. At that time we will have more 
dope for the readers. The Class A team 
trophy was won by the S. F. Police 
leani #1 ; Class B. San Mateo's Sheriff

Office; Class C. Oakland Police leam, 
ami Class D by the Alameda Police 
Team. During 1952 our old friend of 
the Oakland Police Department, "Spike" 
Spiken, finished his eighth year of com- 
petition without a miss and the Oakland 
Club was in a quandary as to a suitable 
award for him. .'Vs of this writing noth- 
ing has been settled. However, Spike 
fell by the wayside on the opening day 
of the 1953 season and spent the day in 
bed with the FLU. His temperature 
was high but not as high as his blood 
pressure because of his being unable to 
get to the matches. 

Hatch to Return 

Cliff Hatch, retired last year from the 
Oakland Police Department, sez he will 
be back with the gang in the next couple 
of months. He has been so busy with his 
veterans organizations he hasn't had time 
to do much shooting. 

AVarrant Officer Jack Goodall, of the 
L . S. .Marine team, has been transferred 
to the Pentagon in AVashington. We 
understand he is very reluctant to leave 
his place here on the coast but duty is 
duty and Jack has to went. AVe know 
that his steady shooting is going to be 
missed by his teammates. 

Joe de Mello, of the Oakland Police 
Department, has been under the weather 
for the past couple or three months but, 
being a nutty shooter, he is out on the 
lines every match and states that the 
time he quits will be when they pack him 
off in one of those wooden boxes so popu- 
lar with the undertakers. 

Santa Cruz Club 

The Santa Cruz Handgun Club had 
a dozen or so of their newly organized 
members at the shoot, with a ladies' team 
to boot. The ladies on the team are 
Alma Bellera, Lois Ackerman, Jessie 
Fyree and \ vonne Geisert. Shooting in- 
structions are under the able hands of 
Sgt. Jack Bellera of Ford Ord who ex- 
pects to have the Club in active com- 
petition soon. Might we call your at- 
tention to the fact they are a "handgun" 
club — nor a pistol club! 

There is great rivalry between Ray 
Freeman and Frank Dunphy, both of 
the S.F.P.D. Sunday when Ray wasn't 
on the lines ready for the first string on 
the 50-yard line did Frank try and find 
him ? And was Frank glad to tell us 
that we would have a new member for 
the Siesta Club? And was Frank glad 
Ray forgot as it gave Frank a better 
chance? Yes, my friends, it's a friendly 
feud. Rut when Ray finally woke up and 
got on the lines it so burned Frank he 
didn't do so well. Those friends.

never let up talking about it all day. Carl 
(■[aims he got all 10 shots on the paper 
and has thus established a new high for 
himself — and a tough one for us to beat! 

Our condolences to Vern Clayton and 
his automobile that he so gallantly 
busted up on the way over to the matches. 
We could also offer our condolences to 
Al Heath, the .45 expert, as he an- 
nounced he was married just a few days 
ago. It's bad enough to be a shooter but 
getting married in the bargain definitely 
proves "how silly can one get." 

And we might say that Ray Felton 
was elected president of the W.R.A. for 
1953 and Phil Lander as first vice and 
Tom Monahan as secretary.

ARE YOU THE MAN— 

Who folds the parking; tag, then de- 
liberately looks at his uatch? 

\\'ho says: "No Parking Sign — I did 
not see any" ? 

Who borrows his friend's car and 
tears up the tag? 

Who passed to the left of a standing 
street car "so as not to interfere with 
the passengers getting on"? 

Who jay-walked outside of newly 
painted pedestrian lanes? 

\\ ho drives over a safety zone "be- 
cause it was after six o'clock"? 

Who says: "Section 58; there are too 
many sections to remember" ? 

Who parks in front of a garage en- 
trance "because the blinds were down 
and nobody seemed to be home" ? 

Who "did not see the hydrant ' until 
he came out of the theatre and saw the 
tag ? 

Who moved the safety zone signs 
"only a couple of feet" ? 

Who knocked the safety zone sign 
down trying to get ahead of others, and 
said : "The other fellows crowded me 
over r 

^^'ho says: "Officer, thev must have

^Vho parked diagonal on Market Stret

AVho shows his bent fender to the man 
whose car he has wrecked ? 

Who is checked at 49 and is a friend 
of the Judge, but "don't want him to

AVho says to the pedestrian he has just 
knocked down : "Brother, you'll find out 
that I am the best friend \ou ever met"? 

Who says, on the telephone: "I am 
too busy to come to the Hall about that 
traffic tag" ? 

Who says to the speed cop: "You 
should go after the real reckless drivers, 
them press cars, Yellows, and butcher 
and grocery delivery jitneys"? 

Who, waving his finger, in a burst of 
righteous indignation, says to the traffic 
officer: "I know Gaffer and Ecker — and 
this won't do vou any good " ? 

WRONG IDEA 

An old idea that is just as wrong as it 
ever was is reported by National Auto- 
mobile Club to drive at pressures lower 
than those recommended for the tires on 
the theory that it means better traction.

Garrity Elected 

(Ciinlinuid jiom piuic S) 

Santa Clara's law enforcement agency 
tor 35 years. 

O'Neill won re-election by a wide 
margin in two subsequent elections. 

Santa Clara Native 

He is a native of Santa Clara, attend- 
ed University of Santa Clara College of 
Business Administration and also receiv- 
ed training at San Jose State College 
Police School. 

After his replacement by an appointed 
acting chief last May, O'Neill served as 
a probation officer with the County Ju- 
venile Authority for several months. 

He is now employed as an investigator 
with a San Jose law firm. 

Ex-Constable 

Third man in the Santa Clara police 
chief race, Irving R. Cabral, served two 
years as Santa Clara constable until he 
was appointed to the sheriff's office — an 
assignment brought about by reorganiza- 
tion of the lower court system of the 
state. 

He was elected constable in 1950. His 
previous occupations included operation 
of a taxi service in Santa Clara. 

Cabral also is a nati\e of Santa Clara 
and a graduate of Santa Clara High 
School. 



KEEP TO RIGHT 

SACRAMENTO — The California 
Highway Patrol has reminded slow driv- 
ers that despite the appearance of Euro- 
pean sports cars on the roads, the Ameri- 
can system of keeping to the right is still 
in use. 

Patrol Chief E. Raymond Cato said 
four lane highways seem to have created 
a new type of driver who knows which 
two of the four lanes is his, but who 
pokes along on the inside lane, posing a 
hazard for the normal flow of traffic. 

Chief Cato pointed out that the Ve- 
hicle Code was specific in its provisions 
on "keeping to the right." 

He quoted the applicable section of 
the Code as stating, in part, "any vehicle 
proceeding at less than the normal speed 
of traffic . . . shall be driven in the right 
hand lane ... or as close as practicable 
to the right hand edge or curb . . ." 

The Chief said these left lane drivers 
force other vehicles to weave in and out 
in order to maintain normal speed. This 
lane switching is causing many mishaps, 
he said. 

Strange as it seems. Chief Cato added, 
some motorists still drive on the wrong 
side of two lane roads, definitely illegal 
unless they're passing other vehicles.

Civic Unity in San Jose 

( i'ofitntui J from patjt' '^ ) 
5. By acting in a consultant ca- 
pacity on policies suggested by the ad- 
ministration to determine whether 
the>' would pro\e beneficial to the 
conimunitN'. 

Worthwhile Programs 
Many worthwhile programs have been 
instituted and have strongly stimulated 
interest in law enforcement. It is the 
considered opinion of all concerned that 
the San Jose Citizen's Advisory Com- 
mittee has proved to be an asset to all 
departments of the San Jose Police. 

J. R. Blackmore, Chief of Police of 
the San Jose Department, attended San 
Jose High School in the early twenties, 
and graduated and registered in the first 
recognized police school in San Jose. The 
instructor of that school is today Chief 
of the Identification Bureau of the State 
of California, George Brereton. Upon 
his graduation from George Brereton's 
Police School, Blackmore found himself 
desiring still more education on proced- 
ures and iiuestigation of police work. He 
was then admitted to the Federal Bureau 
of Imestigation Academy in Washing- 
ton, D. C. He has since returned twice 
to the academy, once as a guest speaker 
delivering a lecture on "Activity Re- 
porting" and returning the following 
year in 1949 for a retraining course. 

Athlete 

As an athlete Blackmore could per- 
haps have gained equal recognition with 
his police accomplishments. He pla\ed 
considerable semi-professional baseball, 
"hugging the plate" as a catcher. 

During the winter months when in- 
door sports became popular, he excelled 
as a handball pla\er, gaining a popular 
reputation. Chief Blackmore is modest 
in his achievements by voice, but his 
many awards speak for themselves. Tro- 
phy after trophy stands about the office 
of the department chief as proof of his 
versatile abilities. 

Public support and mutual under- 
standing of the seriousness of law en- 
forcement has helped to coordinate the 
departments in working together and 
has alleviated many obstacles in future 
law enforcement. 

APPLY BRAKES GENTLY 

Quick, positive braking means locked 
wheels and locked wheels slide. Sudden 
application of the brakes and consequent 
sliding of tires is a costly practice on a 
dry road but. National Automobile Club 
warns, when the roadway is wet and slip- 
pery it may end in disaster.

Traffic Toll 

(Conlinut'd from pat/c 15} 

(*Oiie death was a pedestrian and 
train — no motor vehicle involved — but 
is included in this tabulation.) 

The average for the smaller commu- 
nities, the report stated, was one death 
or less, and many towns had no fatali- 
ties for one or both years. 

And, while the greatest number of 
fatal accidents occurred on the highways 
outside of incorporated areas, the num- 
ber of accidents in urban areas is still 
high when compared to the population. 

1 he report also noted that in the ur- 
ban areas, from 50 to 75 per cent of all 
traffic victims were pedestrians. In some 
small towns, the only death recorded was 
a pedestrian. 

Furthermore, Iver C. Larson, execu- 
tive vice-president of the San Francisco 
Green Cross, pointed out police records 
show that for every fatal accident there 
are approximately 35 persons injured and 
225 mishaps involving property damage. 

Larson also emphasized the dollar and 
cents aspect of accidents, as well as the 
needless suffering caused by death and 
injury. 

"Statistics computed by the National 
Safety Council," he said, "show that the 
average cost of one fatal accident { in- 
cluding wage loss, medical expense, over- 
head cost of insurance and property dam- 
age) is $21,300; an injury accident is 
$950 ; and one property damage accident 
is $180. 

"If people would only remember that 
most accidents need never happen if a 
little common sense and caution is used 
on the highway, thousands of lives could 
be saved each year in the United States," 
Larson said. 

The safety leader urged everyone to 
make 1953 the safest year on the road 
yet, and gave the following advice for 
both pedestrians and motorists : 

If you walk — cross only with the sig- 
nal and only at proper intersections. Look 
carefully in both directions before lea\- 
ing the curb. If you are where there are 
no sidewalks, always face on-coming 
traffic. Wear or carry something white 
when walking at night. 

If you drive — keep to a reasonable 
speed on the highway and keep a safe dis- 
tance between you and the car head. 
Always be alert for the other fellow who 
may not be so careful. Never drive if 
you have been drinking. Keep your car 
in top mechanical condition. Watch 
carefully for pedestrians. 

"Remember," he added, "you may 
save a life — possibly your own."

ance with the rules of the National Fleet 
Safety Contest, which is now in its 22nd 
year and includes more than 1,300 truck, 
bus, and taxicab fleets. Winners in each 
of the police divisions will receive the 
National Fleet Safety Contest plaque 
bearing the names of both sponsoring or- 
ganizations. 

Contestants will compete without 
charge and, under the rules, will report 
the number of reportable accidents sus- 
tained and vehicle miles traveled during 
each month. Each contestant will receive 
a monthh' bulletin showing his cumula- 
tive accident frequency and his standing 
in the contest. Police departments will 
be mentioned in the bulletin by code 
number only. 

Mr. Kreml described the contest as a 
proven tool of accident prevention and 
an important new service to police ad- 
ministrators who are interested in cutting 
down accidents involving police equip- 
ment. 

The contest will begin July 1, 1953, 
and will close June 30, 1954. Police 
administrators may obtain contest rules, 
registration forms, and report forms by 
writing the Motor Transportation Di- 
vision, National Safety Council, 425 N. 
Michigan A\e., Chicago 11, 111. 

TAKE CORNERS SLOWLY 

Corners should be taken slowly, states 
National Automobile Club, for squeegee- 
ing around corners at high speeds scrapes 
miles off the tires.

SCHOOL FOR EXAMINERS 

"Selection and Training of Driver 
License Examiners," a three-week pro- 
fessional, in-service training course for 
driver license administrators from states 
throughout the country, will be offered 
in Evanston, 111., from May 11 to 29 
by the American Association of Motor 
Vehicle Administrators, according to L. 
S. Harris, executive director of the or- 
ganization. 

Fhe course — L'nit 'J hrec in a four- 
unit training program for chief driver 
license examiners which began in 1951 — 
will be conducted by the Traffic Institute 
of Northwestern LIniversity. 

Twenty-five $100 tuition scholarships 
have been made available for this course 
by the Farmers Insurance Group Safety 
Foundation of Los Angeles. Scholarship 
award winners will be selected from ap- 
plicants by a selection board composed 
of representatives of the AAMVA, the 
Farmers Insurance Group, and North- 
western University. 

"The course in selection and training 
of driver license examiners," Mr. Harris 
said, "will help the super\ising examiner 
to do a better and more effective job as 
a supervisor and as an instructor in the 
very important work of driver examin- 
ing." 

The course is under the direction of 
Glenn V. Carmichael, member of the 
training stafT of the Traffic Institute and 
one of the country's foremost authorities 
on driver license examiner training. He 
will be assisted by Paul C. Keller of the 
Institute staff who was formerly driver 
licensing specialist of the Utah State De- 
partment of Public Safety. 

"Driver license examining is poten- 
tially one of the most effective forces for 
reducing traffic accidents," Mr. Car- 
michael said. "Most accidents," he stat- 
ed, "are caused not by deficiencies in 
the roads or the cars but in the drivers 
themselves." 

The course is the third of four annual 
courses conducted for chief examiners by 
the Traffic Institute for the American 
Association of Motor Vehicle Adminis- 
trators. The first unit, held in March, 

1951, was on "Standards for Driver Ex- 
aminations. " The second, in March, 

1952, was "Administration of Driver 
License Examinations." The fourth unit, 
to be held in 1954, will be on "Reports, 
Records, and Analysis." 

The training program for chief exam- 
iners has been split into four, three-week 
units because the men can rarely be 
spared from their jobs longer, Mr. Car- 
michael said. 

The course is open ot any director of 
driver licensing, supervising examiner, or

CLEAN THE CLEANERS 

Car owners have a way of forgetting 
that cleaners have their limitations; that 
they will pick up just so much dirt, de- 
clares National Automobile Club. At 
least once a year, the cleaners should be 
cleaned, or, in the case of the non- 
cleanable types, filtering elements should 
be replaced. 

ALLOW SAFE FACTOR 

Drixing the highway with one car 
length between your car and the car 
ahead for every ten miles of speed, is said 
b\- National Automobile Club to be an 
important safety factor. This allows for 
stopping or maneuvering should an emer- 
gency arise.

Wolf Hunt in Los Angeles 

(Ciirilinii.J from page 5) 

name of being a section of town where 
no unescorted woman could walk a block 
without risking insult, abuse of assault 
by an obscene wolf. 

Her partner, Marie Little, a beauti- 
ful, blue eyed blonde, shared her role. 
While Florence walked in one direction, 
awaiting the assault which they said 
would be inevitable, Marie walked in 
another. 

The trap was carefully planned and 
well set up. Early in the day Florence 
and Marie had been called into the of- 
fice of Captain Ben Stein, commanding 
officer of the Los Angeles Juvenile Bu- 
reau and ordered to report to the 77th 
Street station that night. The work was 
not in the general line of duty for the 
girls. 

Ordinarily they rode a patrol car in 
downtown Los Angeles, checking bus 
stations and train stations for runaw-ay 
juveniles, inspecting all night theaters 
for curfew breaking youngsters and se- 
curing accommodations for stranded 
women. Sometimes the)- in\estigated 
crimes involving children. But serving 
as bait to trap a molester was a little 
out of their line. 

Lieutenant Paul Phelps briefed them 
when they reported to the 77th Street 
station that night. He explained that 
Chief of Detectives Thad Brown had or- 
dered a concentrated effort to capture 
the men who had been making San Pedro 
Street unsafe for women and told them 
how they were going to do it. The plan 
was foolproof and safe. As safe as any 
such plan can be. 

7 he young women had plenty of as- 
sistance. A total of thirty-five detectives 
and plainclothes men were assigned to 
unmarked automobiles and placed in po- 
sitions throughout the area which would 
enable at least two of them to keep their 
eyes on Policewomen Coberly and Little 
at all times. An area bounded on the 
east by San Pedro, the west by Broad- 
way, the South by Eighty-third and the 
north by Sixty-fifth streets was pictured 
on a specially prepared map with the 
routes to be followed by the girls and the 
stations of the watching officers carefully 
indicated. 

Both girls were cautioned to be selec- 
tive about the type of arrest they made. 
The wolf on the street corner who whis- 
tles at anything in skirts was not their 
quarry. Lieutenant Phelps warned them 
that they wanted the thugs who had been 
snatching purses and dragging women 
down alleys. He also informed them that 
they would never be out of sight of

other officers so there was h'ttle to worry 
about. 

Florence Coberly told herself there 
was little to worry about under any cir- 
cumstances. Before joining the Los An- 
geles Police Department she had been 
employed as a model and as a gymna- 
sium instructor and was convinced that 
she could defend herself against any kind 
of attack. 

The policewoman had walked less 
than two blocks when the young man 
approached her. He was powerful, tall, 
dark and broadshoiildered wearing a 
colorful sport shirt and brown slacks. 

"Let's go have a little fun. Babe," he 
suggested. 

He stood squarely in front of her, 
blocking further progress, a lecherous 
leer in his dark brown eyes, his lips 
twitching just a little. 

Policewoman Coberly speeded her pace 
and brushed past him. "Not tonight, 
junior," she replied coldly. She contin- 
ued walking south toward Eighty-third 
Street where she knew officers were wait- 
ing, staring straight ahead, not knowing 
what the young man behind her was 
doing. 

A wolf? Yes, he was a wolf all right, 
but so far the ordinary type of masher. 
He had done nothing to prove that he 
was the man the police were seeking. 
Mrs. Coberly quickened her pace, won- 
dering with just a twinge of fear if this 
was the moment she was waiting for. 
Nothing happened. 

Another block, two blocks and still no 
incident. Almost a half hour later she 
had covered thirteen blocks without in- 
terruption. Her feet were aching a little. 
The darkness was complete. Sometimes 
she could not help glancing up and down 
the street, trying to spot the department 
cars which were assigned to guard her. 
They were unmarked. One car looked 
just like another. The featureless sil- 
houettes in the parked cars could be 
officers ... or they could be men she 
was trying to trap. 

Eight\'-second Street. A tan Oldsmo- 
bile sedan was double parked in the 
street, its engine running, a boy or a 
young man sitting behind the steering 
wheel. Policewoman Coberly glanced at 
it briefly, then directed her gaze on up 
the street. The young fellow was wait- 
ing for someone, probably. There was 
nothing to worry about. She moved 
abreast of it, then past. Just a few steps 
beyond it when the figure appeared in the 
darkness, striding into view from a door- 
way. A tall man, broadshouldered and 
dark. Even in that dim light, Mrs. Cob- 
erly was able to identify the lecherous 
features of the man who had accosted

her thirteen blocks back up the street. 
J'his was her man then. He must be 
the riijht one. 

"Look." 1 he obscene gesture was >in- 
mistakable. 

Policewoman Coberly hesitated, then 
opened her mouth to speak. The words 
were never uttered. Without warning 
she found herself in the grip of the mo- 
lester, who half lifted and half dragged 
her into the shadows of the recessed 
doorway. He held the policewoman with 
his left hand while pressing something 
hard against her chest. 

Mrs. Coberly looked down and caught 
a glimpse of what appeared to be a nickel 
plated automatic pistol in the atacker's 
grip. When she saw it her confidence in 
her ability to defend herself vanished 
abruptly. It was replaced by paralyzing 
fear. 

The idea occurred to her that she 
might be the first murder victim of this 
man who had forced his attentions on at 
least a dozen women in the district. She 
saw herself shot and left to die in the 
deserted doorway, and wondered at the 
same time where the officers who were 
supposed to be watching over her were. 
According to all plans they should have 
seen him drag her from the sidewalk. 

"Keep quiet," he warned. "I just want 
to kiss you." 

\Vith the menacing little piece of 
metal still pressed hard against her, Flor- 
ence Coberly submitted to the caress. She 
had little choice. The molester held her 
tight against him, pinioning her arms to 
her sides in a manner which gave her no 
opportunity to remove her gim from its 
holster and bring it into firing position. 
'1 he gun, she knew, was a menace to 
her own safety. If the man became aware 
of it he might guess she was a police- 
woman and kill her instantly. She 
squirmed and twisted in his grip. 

"Don't move," he warned. "I want 
to kiss you again." 

That was once too often. Police- 
woman Coberly's temper got the best of 
her discretion. One frantic effort brought 
her hands up to his chest and she pushed 
him away. The action infuriated the 
molester. He dropped the little weapon 
into his pocket and snatched the young 
woman's purse, tearing it from her shoul- 
der and hurling it to the pavement. Next 
he raised his arm in a threatening ges- 
ture. 

"Don't hit me," she begged. "I'll go 
■with you." 

Mrs. Coberly knew she had to get out 
of that doorway into the dimly lighted 
street where the officers, who she was 
SLire must have missed the first act, would 
ha\e a chance to see her.

"You'll come all right," he declared, 
picking her up bodily and striding to- 
ward the Oldsmobile which was still 
double parked a short distance away. 
After proceeding a short distance he de- 
posited her on the sidewalk. 

"Now come on, " he urged. 

The policewoman jerked a whistle 
from the right hand breast pocket of her 
jacket. 

"What have \ou got there?" the hood- 
lum demanded. 

Florence forced a smile. "Wait a min- 
ute and I'll show you." 

It happened too fast for him to stop 
her. Before he could move Mrs. Coberh 
had blown one shrill blast on her police 
whistle. A stiff right cross knocked her 
dov\n before she could go any farther 
than that. 

Blind rage and primitive passion 
seemed to merge in the molester then. 
AVhile he beat the inert policewoman 
with one hand he fumbled with her skirt 
with the other. Mrs. Coberly remem- 
bered a bit of advice she had received 
from her husband regarding her course 
of action in case she was ever knocked 
down. 

"Play possum," he had said. "Just 
make believe you have been knocked out. 
It will serve as a delaying action." 

Eyes closed, Florence Coberly lay still, 
praying and waiting. Seconds later the 
sounds of running feet and her attack- 
er's curse told her help had arrived. 

For a moment everything seemed to 
happen at once. The husky young man 
forgot the girl and fled. Policewoman 
Coberly climbed to her feet just in time 
to see Officer Frank A. Marz dash by 
shouting "Police officer. Halt or I'll 
shoot." 

The fugitive ran past the Oldsmobile, 
shouted something to the driver, then 
ran around the corner. Marz followed, 
close on his heels. Meanwhile the Olds- 
mobile leaped forward and plunged at 
top speed down the street. Mrs. Coberly 
had time to draw her revolver and fire 
one shot at the fleeing car. Then it was 
gone. 

In the distance she could hear the 
sound of other shots. Two in quick suc- 
cession, an interval, then two more. Mrs. 
Coberly jammed the police whistle into 
her mouth and blew it frantically, trying 
to attract the attention of other officers. 
Marie Little, her partner, came run- 
ning toward her. Together they dashed 
around the corner where they saw Marz 
and Officer W. \1. Clago standing over 
the man who had recently attacked Mrs. 
Coberly. The molester was alive, but 
breathing heavily and obviously badly 
hurt.

"Call the radio cars and an ambu- 
lance," Marz instructed. 

'1 he two women ran to a nearby serv- 
ice station, but it was closed. They asked 
for a telephone at the first tavern they 
passed, but were told it was out of order. 
Finally they found a police car manned 
by Officers A. C. Challoner and J. P. 
Donnelly. While they were telling their 
story an ambulance siren was heard wail- 
ing in the distance. 

"Somebody call the ambulance," one 
of the officers declared. "Get in." 

"Someone was with him," Mrs. Cob- 
erly reported. "A young fellow in a tan 
Oldsmobile. About a 47 or 48 model." 

"Did you get the license number?" 

"I'm afraid not. It was too dark to 
see it." 

Donnelly drove to the scene of the 
shooting where Lieutenant Phelps and 
several of his men had gathered, depos- 
ited the two policewomen there and 
promptly drove ofif in search of the tan 
Oldsmobile. 

One of the men from the ambulance 
knelt over the prostrate form of the 
molester. He felt his pulse, then looked 
up at Lieutenant Phelps. 

"You need the coroner," he an- 
nounced. "It's too late for us. The man 
is dead." 

Mrs. Coberly inquired about the nick- 
el plated automatic and the attendant 
searched the dead man's pockets. He 
produced a nickel plated, pistol type, 
cigarette lighter. 

"Do you mean this?" he inquired. 

Florence Coberly blushed. "It looked 
like a gun to me," she declared. 

"No one could blame you," Lieuten- 
ant Phelps told her. "In your spot it 
would have looked like a gun to any- 
one. 

A visit to the Georgia Street Receiv- 
ing Hospital ended Mrs. Coberly's ad- 
ventures for the evening. Later that 
night Officers Challoner and Donnelly 
located the tan Oldsmobile and appre- 
hended the driver — a teen-aged boy who 
said he had just "gone along for the 
ride." 

1 he dead man, who had a long arrest 
record, was identified by several women 
as the man who had snatched their purses 
or molested them. 

Mrs. Coberly has been awarded sev- 
eral citations and named woman of the 
year in Los Angeles as the result of her 
courage and clear thinking in handling 
the assignment.

Department memo, continued : ". . . was

successful in freeing herself, at which 
time she blew her police ichistle for as- 
sistance. 

"After blou'iny the ivhistle she icas 
i/iimediately struck on the jait.' and 
knocked to the ground by the molester, 
during uhich time he attempted to tear

ately responded to Policeiioman Cober- 
ly's signal and upon seeing the detectives 
the molester attempted to flee from the 
scene. 

"The detectives and Policewoman 
Coberly fired several shots at the moles- 
ter which later proved fatal. 

"Subsequent investigation disclosed 
that the molester, an exconvict, had a 
record of some 40 arrests, which include 
a prison term for burglary, as welt as a 
previous record of molesting iromen and 
children." 



TRAFFIC CIRCUS 

(Continued from page i) 
Thousands of parents and school offi- 
cials have praised the show's effective 
method of teaching safety. The follow- 
ing remark, by J. Harold Klopp, Prin- 
cipal of Amanda E. Stout School in 
Reading, Pa., is typical. 

"I am sure our pupils will be more 
conscious than ever in observing safety 
habits and rules in their daily lives as 
the result of your program." 

Safety Club 

In conjunction with his traveling show, 
Pressley has organized a Junior Traffic 
Safety Club, which now has a member- 
ship of over 700,000. School children 
become eligible for membership in the 
dub after correctly answering series of 
questions on traffic safety. The question- 
naires are passed out by Pressley imme- 
diately after his show. 

A certificate of membership, picturing 
Officer Pressley and four of his perform- 
ing dogs, is sent to each member of the 
club by the American Trucking Asso- 
ciations. 

The Traffic Safety Circus is endorsed 
by the National Safety Council, the In- 
ternational Chiefs of Police Association, 
J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI, and edu- 
cators and civic organizations through- 
out the countrv.

MARGIN OF SAFETY 

Experienced professional drivers al- 
ways leave a margin of safety between 
cars. Never follow another car closer 
than a full car's length at ten miles an 
hour. And when you're moving faster, 
leave a proportionately larger margin of 
safety, advises the California State Auto- 
mobile Association. That's the way to 
prevent rear-end collisions.

TOYON TERRACES is a community 
of dream houses which have been 
individually architect-designed in con-

meet specific requirements of each 
family. 

Homes which trap the sun, exploit 
the views, and blend with their natural 
settings for the best in indoor-outdoor 
living, are testimony to the skill of 
well-known architects. 

Inspiring marine and mountain views 
are not marred by unsightly poles and

"J. R." was a most accomplished check 
passer. Before his arrest and conviction 
here he had — while using twenty-eight 
aliases — passed hundreds of checks 
throughout California. The members of 
the Check Detail had been kind to him 
and he volunteered to write the above 
listed "don'ts" to protect what he laugh- 
ingly called "our gullible citizens."

Slow Down at Blind Corners 

Almost everyone has had the experi- 
ence of walking hurriedly past or around 
the corner of a building and bumping 
into another person. Such pedestrian col- 
lisions are generally passed of? with apol- 
ogies. But when a motorist in a hurry 
drives fast past or around a blind corner, 
the California State Automobile Asso- 
ciation points out the result is often a 
serious or fatal collision that apologies 
can't rectify.

Watch Those Lights 

SACRAiMENTO— Drivers are still 
disregarding the flashing red lights on 
stopped school buses and, what's worse, 
they're still killing and injuring students, 
the California State Highway Patrol re- 
ported. 

The Patrol cited recent cases where 
several children were injured, one fa- 
tally, by motorists who sped past buses 
displaying the flashing red lights. 

Officials pointed out that when the 
red warning lights are in operation, all 
vehicles approaching a school bus from 
either direction must come to a halt and 
remain standing until the lights go out. 

The law requires the bus driver to 
operate the lights, the Patrol explained, 
only when he stops to take on or dis- 
charge youngsters who must cross the 
road or highway. 

If the bus stops to pick up or let out 
school children who live on the same 
side of the road, then the driver is not 
permitted to flash his red lights and other 
vehicles may proceed normally. 

The Patrol said a school bus ride is 
one of the safest ways to travel in Cali- 
fornia, but that the children faced their 
greatest danger crossing the road before 
getting on or after getting off the bus. 

"If drivers will stop when they near 
a school bus with flashing red lights," 
said the Patrol, "then even that danger 
can be minimized." 

BATTERY CABLES 

Automobile battery cables should be 
kept clean and free from corrision in 
order to insure efficient battery perform- 
ance. The California State Automobile 
Association points out that corrosion oc- 
casionally forms on the battery posts to 
which the cables are attached, causing 
trouble in starting. Tapping the battery 
cable at the point where it attached to 
the battery post with a wooden hammer 
handle or any wooden object will some- 
times eliminate the short circuit tempo- 
rarily, thus permitting the engine to be 
started. 

Conference Slated 

The 60th Annual Conference of the 
International Association of Chiefs of 
Police will be conducted September 13- 
17, 1953, in Detroit, Michigan. 

Conference headquarters will be in the 
Statler Hotel. 

Commissioner Donald S. Leonard of 
the Detroit Police Department will be 
host to the law enforcement officials.

ards and facilitate the flow of traffic 
through and within the City. Coleman 
has discontinued the use of two wheel 
motorcycles in his department. There 
were many reasons for this action, pri- 
marily, the extreme hazard to the rider. 
The patrol car which replaces the two 
wheel motorcycle can be used to a much 
greater advantage in this City. Recently, 
two additional cars were added to the 
Department, making a total rolling stock 
of six cars, two three wheel motorcycles 
and one truck, which is used by the Hu- 
mane Officer. All rolling equipment used 
for patrol work and traffic enforcement 
has been painted the distinctive and con- 
spicuous black and white since Chief 
Coleman took office in September. All 
rolling equipment is equipped with three 
way radio including the humane officer's 
truck. 

The Traffic Bureau has lost its iden- 
tity, and all functions of this bureau in- 
cluding the enforcement of parking meter 
regulations have been made a responsi- 
bility of the patrol division. At present, 
two officers are attending a course in acci- 
dent investigation cosponsored by the 
Northwestern University Traffic Insti- 
tute and the State Department of Edu- 
cation. 

Detective Bureau 

The detective bureau, under the super- 
vision of Lieutenant Lee McSwain, has 
duties primarily concerning the investi- 
gation of felonies. The identification 
bureau is also under the direction of 
Lieutenant McSwain. It is hoped and 
believed that the Department's statisti- 
cal records will become more impressive 
as improved investigation techniques are 
introduced and put into practice. Mc- 
Swain is a capable investigator and super- 
visor and is so regarded throughout the 
San Joaquin Valley. 

Juvenile Bureau 

The juvenile bureau of the Depart- 
ment has been successful in its chief ob- 
jective of crime prevention and has an 
enviable record in this respect. Juvenile 
Officer Jack Ford, who has for some time 
carried out an effective program with the 
youth of Merced, is also well known 
throughout the State for his work with 
the Central California Juvenile Peace 
Officers Association. Chief Coleman 
states that since his main objective is 
crime prevention, this important bureau 
cannot function properly without suffi- 
cient men and equipment. Soon after as- 
suming the office of Chief, Coleman 
added an Assistant Juvenile Officer and 
assigned a police car to the juvenile bu- 
reau. Also, larger and more suitable

quarters have been provided for their

officers to thoroughly acquaint themselves 
with juvenile procedure. 

One man who serves quietly but effi- 
ciently is Captain Mahlon Stanley, who 
is now in his 17th year with the Police 
Department. He has served under seven 
chiefs and has been Acting Chief himself 
four times during these years. Each new 
officer has found that at some time Cap- 
tain Stanley is the only one able to sup- 
ply the answer. 

Chief Coleman is consistently seeking 
measures that can add improvements to 
the Department, already well organized 
and functioning to capacity. The people 
of Merced are behind their new Chief 
and under his leadership the people can 
feel assured of continued progress in 
crime prevention and law enforcement. 

Cornell — Old Name in Merced 

(Continued from page 6) 

his path. Slowly, however, the sheriff 
won his battle. Merced became as clean 
and orderly as any city of comparable 
size in California and Cornell continued 
to win elections in spite of an element 
which fondly remembered the good old 
days and did its best to restore them. 

Today, after five terms in office, the 
main problem facing Sheriff Cornell is 
the county jail. Like many peace officers 
all over the United States he has discov- 
ered that the last place the taxpayers 
want to see their money go is into a penal 
institution. He is frank to admit that jail 
conditions are not ideal in Merced 
County, but points out that by stretching 
a little a long way and concentrating on 
cleanliness he has at least made the place 
livable. Recently the Merced County 
Grand Jury complimented him on doing 
the best he could under the circum- 
stances. 

The history of the Merced County 
Sheriff's office goes back to 1885 when 
Charles Bloodworth was elected to the 
post of sheriff and tax collector. In those 
days Merced was little more than a vil- 
lage and the fertile country which now 
surrounds the city was in a large degree 
parched and useless. 

More poeple came to the county with 
advanced irrigation methods and, when 
Charles Warfield was elected to his third 
term as sheriff -tax collector in 1892 the 
jobs were split. Since that time the sher- 
iff's office in Merced County has steadily 
progressed, both in methods and size un- 
til reaching the present modern, well- 
manned office over which Sheriff Cornell 
presides. A great deal of that credit can 
be given to Cornell who has spent more 
than twice as long as any other man as 
the chief law enforcement officer of the 
countv.

The fifteenth anniversary meeting of 
the Northern California Chapter of 
APCO Inc. was held at Rickey's Red 
Chimney in San Francisco on February 
15, 1953. Henrj' Bogardus and George 
Hippely were hosts. 

The meeting was called to order at 
1 1 :30 a.m. by President Jack Atkinson 
of the Santa Clara County Communica- 
tions Department. Round-table introduc- 
tions revealed that 33 members and 
guests were in attendance. Treasurer 
Mason reported on the condition of the 
treasury and that 1953 dues were now 
payable. 

President Atkinson appointed the fol- 
lowing committees for 1953: 

Frequency Allocation and Engineer- 
ing Committee: Mc.Murphy, Chairman; 
Mason and Keller. 

Inter-Chapter Relations Committee: 
McDole, Chairman ; Bogardus. 

Operating Procedure Committee: 
Lewis, Chairman ; Bayley, Hippely and 
Mason. 

Commercial Relations Committee: OI- 
sen. Chairman ; Deetkin and Robertson. 

Constitution Revision Committee: 
Board of Directors and Charles Simpson. 

A discussion was held on the Point to 
Point System. Frank Roach from the 
State Office of Civil Defense announced 
the coming CPX on Wednesday, Feb- 
ruary 18. 

After a discussion of the joint meeting 
with the Southern Chapter, Ivan Hud- 
son made a motion that we hold it in 
Santa Cruz some time in April. After 
a second by Lewis the group voted in 
favor and then discussed the program. 

Art McDole spoke on the revision of 
the National Constitution and By-laws. 
Jim Lewis suggested that any change in 
the organization should be submitted to 
all chapters and that they should be 
polled and ratify any change. 

The meeting was adjourned for lunch 
at 12:10 p.m., and after a delicious re- 
past we reconvened at 1 :20 p.m. 

A frequency of 45.58 mc for Clovis 
was approved on a motion by McDole 
and a second by McMurphy. 

The Association discussed the problem 
of police and fire usage of frequencies 
in Marin County. 

Two small bills were ordered paid. 

On a motion by Hartnett, seconded 
by LeBoeuf, the secretary was directed 
to dispense with the return postal cards 
unless the host requested them. 

A discussion was held on the eligibility 
of Railroad Radio membership and it

RETIRED POLICE STEED 
BOWS OUT 

Goodbye, Folks ! This is my last parade ! 

Never again shall I proudly dance 
To waving flags, to brave bands played, 

No more champ my bit and gaily 
prance. 

I'll miss my friends on Market Street, 
The lumps of sugar I loved so well ; 

I'll miss the tramp of countless feet, 
The raucous note of newsboys' yell. 

I'll be lonely for the old windmill, 
The Sunday crowds at the Beach and 
Park, 
My climbs to the top of Strawberry Hill, 
But, most of all, for a hand in the 
dark. 

I'm on my way to pastures green and 
fair, 
To loaf in the sunshine and dream all 
day, 
'I'o dream of my master and wish he were 
there ; 
I wonder if God hears horses when 
they pray!

The Long Road 

By Kathli£i;x Blair 

It began in nineteen-eleven. 

It will end in nineteen fifty-three. 

The long and well executed career of 
a good man and a good officer. 

In the course of forty-two years with 
the San Francisco Police Department 
Captain Leo J. Tackney has proven to 
be the capable, efficient and fine law man 
that the department hoped he would be. 

In 1Q33 Leo was appointed to the 
rank of captain and has since done a 
great job in upholding his respected posi- 
tion. 

During the time he has served on the 
force he has had many experiences that 
ha\ e been both hiuiiorous and serious. 

He has seen them all, from the drunk 
\vho is booked for causing a disturbance 
to the sneak thief, prowler, sex offender, 
and murderer. 

The young punk who was arrested for 
trying to crash a party, the rapist who 
caused women to fear going out at night, 
the purse snatcher that prayed on the 
lonely streets in the dark evening — have 
all been Captain Tackney 's prisoners. 

He was there the night a cursing, 
fighting, heartless killer was brought into 
the precinct station and questioned. 

He was there the night a call came in 
on a juvenile girl who had been severely 
beaten up. 

When he arrived at the scene a \oung 
girl stood there, eyes wide with fright, 
swollen and bruised lips trembling as she 
awaited the ambulance, blood oozing 
slowly out of her small nose, and large 
welts all over her arms and legs where 
she had been repeatedly struck hard 
blows that only a cruel and sadistic per- 
son could have administered to such a 
defenseless being. 

There have not only been beatings, 
and murders to keep the captain busy, 
but there have been countless holdups, 
shop-liftings, and robberies to help oc- 
cupy the report sheets on his desk and in 
his files. 

Many years ago a holdup man had his 
activities abruptly ended when Captain 
Tackney took up the chase following a 
series of robberies. 

The waiting and watching paid off one 
night when the culprit was caught in the 
act of breaking into a store ; it was with 
grave anxiety that the once hard and 
tough bandit now meekly faced the strap- 
ping young officer who covered him with 
his forty-five. 

It goes without saying that there are 
many such stories to be told on this of- 
ficer, but each would only add up to the

same thing . . . his gallantry as a fine, 
confident, honest, sincere police officer 
whose only thought is that of doing his 
job to the utmost. 

The department's second loss, again at 
Ingleside station, is that of Lieutenant 
Humphry Kelleher who, after thirty- 
three years of service, is also retiring 
along with his very able co-worker and 
friend. Captain Tackney. 

Lieutenant Kelleher has been with the 
different substations as well as the traffic 
bureau as a fixed post officer. 

Kelleher filled a job which only the 
finest of men can be chosen to do, because 
only someone who is alert, and ever 
watchful for the hot car thief, the drunk 
driver, the jay walker and the potential 
reckless car killer, covild do this job with 
the elan that it must have to be a success. 

Both of these excellent rank officers 
are married and have children. 

Captain Tackney has several commen- 
dations and a meritorious service award 
to his credit, and has this to say to the 
incoming members of the department : 
"For the young man coming into the de- 
partment, police work is the most honor- 
able profession in the world. There are 
plenty of opportunities for advancement 
if the officer applies himself and treats 
the people as he would want to be 
treated." 

Lieutenant Kelleher says, "Right now 
conditions are far better than they were 
thirty years ago. Any young man with 
the ambition should concern himself with 
advancement. Be conscientious and keep 
out of trouble, and at all times use diplo- 
macy toward the public. If you do all 
these things well you will be a fine of- 
ficer." 

So we close another chapter in the 
lives of two more men, who for over 
three decades served their public with 
dignity, fairness and pride. 

Captain Leo J. Tackney and Lieuten- 
ant Humphrey Kelleher will go down 
now in the honor book along with the 
many other men who have served their 
public, their God, and their country with 
the judgment only the best of police of- 
ficers can maintain. 

THE HEAVIEST PENALTY 

Reckless driving is subject to severe 
penalties imposed by state law, but the 
severest penalties of all, warns the Cali- 
fornia State Automobile Association, are 
death or disability imposed by the law of 
impact. Reckless drivers should realize 
that they can't elude the consequences of 
either law for long.

tect. They are the eyes and ears of the 
administrators of the department, charg- 
ed with the responsibility of safeguarding 
the community against crime and other 
hazards. 

The plans and tactics devised by the 
department heads for the solution of 
many police problems depends to a large 
degree upon the information gathered 
and reported by the patrol division. 

Detective Bureau 

Six men man the department's detec- 
tive bureau, the division which handles 
the investigation of Santa Ana's major 
crimes. These men are carefully selected 
from the rank and file of the department. 

Under this bureau are assigned the spe- 
cialists in the Identification Bureau and 
photographic specialists. The Forgery 
Detail handles the ever growing problem 
of fictitious and forged checks and has 
been responsible for many arrests and 
convictions for this offense. 

The Detective Bureau is also charged 
with the warrant and fugitive detail 
which takes persons charged with an of- 
fense through court as well as serving 
warrants, subpoenas and assisting with 
the return of fugitives. 

Pawn Shops 

One the most important segments of 
the Detective Bureau is the pawn shop 
detail. Little known by the average citi- 
zens, these men are responsible for a great 
percentage of the stolen goods which is 
recovered by the Santa Ana Police De- 
partment. A daily sur\ey of secondhand 
store and pawnshop reports is made for 
stolen articles. Sold or pledged property 
reports are maintained in a file system, 
so that for future reference a report may 
be found by any of several methods. The 
persons name pledging or selling, the date 
the article was pledged or sold, the de- 
scription of the article or the serial num- 
ber of the article through the numerical 
file. These reports are made in triplicate, 
thus the dealer maintains one copy and 
the original and a copy are sent to the 
Detective Bureau where the original is 
filed and the copy sent to the Criminal 
Investigation and Identification Bureau 
in Sacramento for a statewide check 
against stolen reports for articles men- 
tioned in all points bulletins throughout 
the State of California.

ferent from all of California's — and it is 
a first class headache throughout the state.

Police Department has grown through 
the years from a small and relatively un- 
important branch of the department to 
a large and increasingly important posi- 
tion in the organization. In 1928 there 
were onl\ three mounted motorcycle offi- 
cers in the city. Today the Santa Ana 
Police Department Traffic Bureau con- 
sists of a Lieutenant, eleven officers as- 
signed to solo motors, one officer assigned 
to a servi-cycle and thirteen men assigned 
to the duties of guarding school crossings. 
1 heir task is no small one, considering 
the city has a population of 55,000 peo- 
ple, covers an area of 10.8 square miles 
and contains 173.9 miles of highway. The 
Traffic Bureau also maintain a vigilant 
guard to protect the 10,444 children who 
attend the city's 24 schools. 

Juvenile Bureau 

In addition to their routine duties, the 
officers of the Santa Ana Traffic Bureau 
must investigate all accidents and submit 
reports, check all abandoned automobiles 
for the possibility that they are stolen, 
and take care of all complaints related to 
traffic or highway conditions. 

The Juvenile Bureau or Crime Pre- 
vention Bureau in Santa Ana consists of 
two men. This includes a sergeant in 
charge of the Bureau and another detail- 
ed from the Patrol Division to the bur- 
eau. These two men make investigations 
concerning law infractions by persons 
under the age of 18 years. They have 
constant contact with all schools through- 
out the city and are often called upon h\ 
the schools to assist them when a student 
becomes a problem and is heading for 
trouble. 

In addition to these duties the officer 
must always be alert around the places 
where juveniles gather for the purpose 
of their protection against uninvited per- 
sons who might endanger juvenile wel- 
fare. 

The bureau works in close cooperation 
with the Detective Bureau in the investi- 
gation of thefts where an adult is im- 
plicated along with the juvenile ofifender. 
^\'hen an arrest is made the juvenile is 
handed over to the juvenile officer who 
will dispose of that end of the case. 

Policewomen 

Two policewomen are employed by the 
department. They devote their time 
largely to crime prevention and the pro- 
tection of juveniles and women. They 
work in conjunction with the ju\enile 
officers in the handling of delinquent girls 
and in doing so protect them from as 
much publicity as possible. They work 
with the detective bureau and uniformed 
division whenever women are involved.

ment relieve on the desk detail, compile

Chief Hershey 

Record Bureau 

The Record Bureau of the Santa Ana 
Police Department contains all reports 
and correspondence of the department in- 
cluding fingerprints, mug files and bulle- 
tins from other departments. At present 
there are on file in the Santa Ana record 
bureau 12,450 mugs and fingerprint 
cards. The arrest files contain 34,000 
cases and increase rapidly in the fast 
growing Southern California community. 
Records are kept on the test firing of all 
guns processed through the department, 
concealed weapon permits and the pur- 
chase of firearms. Pawn slips are carded 
for comparison and filing in the numeri- 
cal index. Three clerks card and file 
these on a rotating basis. Each clerk 
knows all the work and no individual is 
assigned to any particular duties. These 
girls handle large volume of phone in- 
quiries and check countless records every 
day. The Chief's secretary, in addition 
to the duties assigned to that position, is 
charged with the supervision of the Rec- 
ord Bureau.

All this is a far cry from the day when 
Santa Ana policemen had to watch care- 
fully to see that no one \iolated the speed 
law (it was against the law to drive a 
herd of sheep down a street at more than 
six miles per hour) or to see that no one 
riding a bicycle passed a fire truck. Yes, 
that's right. Those laws existed and had 
to be enforced when Chief Hershey took 
over thirty years ago. But times have 
changed. And so has the department. 



COMMITTEE ON COURTS 

The special committee of the Amer- 
ican Bar Association carrying on a na- 
tional campaign to improve traffic courts 
has received a grant of $7,500 from the 
All State Insurance Company of Chi- 
cago to aid in expanding the program. 

At the same time, Albert B. Hough- 
ton of Milwaukee, Wis., chairman of the 
committee, announced the appointment 
of former Municipal Court Judge Joe 
M. Hill of Dallas, Tex., as assistant 
director of the ABA Traffic Court pro- 
gram. Judge Hill will assist Director 
James P. Economos of Chicago in the 
administration of the program, which 
was started six years ago. A Chicago 
attorney, Theodore G. Maheras, also has 
been added to the Traffic Court staff as 
administrative assistant to the director. 
Maheras until recently was with the 
procurement division of the United 
States Air Force. 

Chairman Houghton predicted that 
approximately 750 cities throughout the 
country would participate in the Traffic 
Court contest to determine national lead- 
ers in traffic court improvement during 
the last year. Judging will take place 
in connection with the anual meeting of 
the American Bar Association in Boston 
August 24 to 28. 

Another phase of the program is a 
series of traffic court conferences, held in 
key cities throughout the nation, to bring 
together traffic law enforcement officials, 
judges, educators and others for instruc- 
tion courses on enforcement practices, 
court procedure, legal interpretations, 
and the like. Five of these area confer- 
ences have been held so far this year. A 
sixth is scheduled for March 30 to April 
3 at Northeastern University, Boston, 
Mass., and a similar conference will be 
held at the University of Alabama, Tus- 
caloosa, April 13 to 17.

TRAFFIC RECORD SCHOOL 

All extensive two-week, course in "Po- 
lice Traffic Records — Procedures and 
Use of Data" will be offered at the 
Traffic Institute in Evanston, 111., for 
the first time from June 1 to 12, accord- 
ing to Gerald O'Connell, director of 
training. 

Traffic records lie at the very heart of 
any effective program of law enforce- 
ment and traffic accident prevention, 
Mr. O'Connell stated. In addition, he 
said, important use is made of informa- 
tion from the records bureau in all 
phases of a community's accident pre- 
\ention program, including engineering, 
education, and driver licensing. 

"For these reasons," Mr. O'Connell 
said, "we are confident that the invest- 
ment police departments make in sending 
an officer to the traffic records course for 
training in the organization, operation, 
and direction of the records bureau will 
be more than repaid — in efficiency, econ- 
omy, and effectiveness. " 

The traffic records course is the third 
new course offered by the Traffic Insti- 
tute in a new series of integrated short 
courses developed to train key police per- 
sonnel in specific traffic functions. 

Another new unit course to be offered 
for the first time is "Traffic Law for 
Police," scheduled for July 6-17. 

The unit course, "Traffic Law En- 
forcement," will be offered again at the 
Institute, October 5 to 23, 1953. It 
will immediately follow the three-week 
course in orientation in police traffic 
work to be held from September 1+ to 
October 2. The orientation course has 
been conducted at the Traffic Institute 
since 1934 under the title, "Police Traf- 
fic Training Course." 

The "Police Traffic Records" course 
is open to commanding officers of traffic 
divisions, officers in charge of records 
bureaus, record clerks and statisticians. 
Tuition is $75. 

Subjects in the course are: 

Principles and purposes of record keep- 
ing; 

Why Records are essential to police 
traffic service ; importance of traffic su- 
pervision calls for business-like methods ; 
examples of how modern police manage- 
ment uses records in planning, organiz- 
ing, staffing ; examples of how problems 
are revealed and action directed by use 
of records ; 

How records produce data required by 
the supervisor-administrator ; kinds of 
basic data needed to direct police traffic 
service ; forms used in various areas and

FBI Conference 

Mr. D. K. Brown, Special Agent in 
Charge of the FBI's San Francisco Of- 
fice, has announced that an FBI Law 
Knforcement Conference on I hefts from 
Interstate Shipment will be held at San 
Francisco on September 15, 1953. The 
conference is aimed at additional coordi- 
nation among law enforcement agencies 
and impro\ed efficiency in dealing with 
this increasingly serious violation. 

Mr. Brown said that since the fiscal 
year of 1949, there has been a steady rise 
on a national scale in the volume of the 
FBI's work in this category. This in- 
crease, coupled with the fact that major 
crime in the United States exceeded the 
two million mark in 1952, for the first 
time in the history of recorded crime 
statistics, indicated the need for such 
conferences. 

Wide Variety 

Thefts from Interstate Shipment, ac- 
cording to Mr. Brown, involve an ex- 
tremely wide variety of offenses. The 
type of property stolen covers the full 
range of industrial products, and the 
method of theft may be marked with the 
full violence of a roadside hi-jacking. Re- 
cent FBI ca.ses have varied from theft of 
a truck and its half-million dollar cargo 
of radio and television tubes to a boy's 
pilferage of two eight-dollar lamps from 
a motor van. In both instances, the 
thieves have been apprehended. Methods 
of theft utilized vary from petty thievery 
by stealth to forging false destinations on 
shipping documents, embezzlement, thefts 



of entire vehicles while unattended, and 
armed robbery of drivers. 

The problem facing the FBI is indi- 
cated by the fact that in the ten-year 
period from July 1, 1942 to Jvine 30, 
1952, there were 8,377 convictions in 
FBI cases involving thefts from inter- 
state shipments. Sentences totalled 18,- 
764 years, 7 months and fines were $608,- 
469. Savings and recoveries amounted to 
$4,882,360. Local law enforcement au- 
thorities, Mr. Brown emphasized, have a 
similar problem involving cases where the 
property stolen was not moving in inter- 
state commerce. 

Regional Bases 

Mr. Brown declared that more than 
one hundred conferences scheduled will 
ser\e to increase coordination of the work 
of the FBI and local law enforcement 
authorities in combating such crimes. 
This is particularly true since the differ- 
ence between Federal and purely local 
offenses is dependent solely upon whether 
the property involved in interstate or 
local, intrastate commerce. 

The conferences have been scheduled 
on a regional basis, Mr. Brown said, and 
will begin in April. Conferences will be 
continued until December, 1953, in loca- 
tions offering the most convenience to the 
participants. Included in those attending 
the conferences in addition to FBI per- 
sonnel, will be local, county and state 
law enforcement officers, railroad police, 
terminal and dock guards, military police 
and representatives of other law enforce- 
ment agencies.

And One Crept . . . 

(Continuid from page 22) 

I've tried to get away from this lousy 
job. Lord, you don't know how I've 
tried. I tried to volunteer for the Raid- 
ers and the paratroopers. But they just 
laugh. You ought to see those graves. 
Anyway, they're deep enough this time." 

"Any chaplain?" 

"That's funny. How is a chaplain go- 
ing to get up here?" The sergeant 
laughted bitterlv. 

'Why not?"' 

"We're cut off. A couple of corpsmen 
tried to get through with some walking 
patients and one got shot and one of their 
patients was killed before thev could get 
back." 

''God." 

"Yeah . . . we need him. The raiders 
are trying to fight their way up to us." 

"Well . . . we took our objective." 

"Yeah. That's the hell of it. We took 
the damned objective." 

The sergeant looked worn and old. He 
was a thirteen year Marine, and had 
been broken about once for every year. 
He had one question left. 

"Are there any more? We've got to 
dig our own holes yet." 

I looked at the kid. He wasn't any 
color at all. Not any color with a name 
anyway. He didn't have a pulse. I closed 
my eyes and tried to concentrate harder, 
but I couldn't feel his pulse. 

I watched his chest. It was moving. 
Barely moving; I had to feel it to be 
sure. His eyelids flickered open and he 
looked up at me, then toward the ser- 
geant. Then he closed them. I nodded 
to the sergeant. 

"Yeah, one." 

The three of them nodded and walked 
back down the hill toward the graves. In 
a little while I could hear them digging. 
The kid's eyes opened again. 

"Doc." 

"Yeah, kid." 

"What time is it. Doc?" 

"About five o'clock, kid." 

"Will you straighten my leg? You've 
got to straighten my leg so I can sleep 
tonight." 

Okay, kid." 

"Will you straighten it. Doc? Will 
you promise you'll straighten it, Doc? 
I've got to sleep tonight." 

"You'll sleep, kid. I swear to God 
you'll sleep." 

"Thanks, Doc." 

He closed his eyes again. His chest 
was hardly moving at all. The sun was 
getting close to the mountains. I couldn't 
feel his pulse. Over the hill I could hear 
the sergeant and his men digging. Dig- 
ging and swearing. 

They were almost ready.

A Score Settled . . . 



S^t. Ronald E. Rosser, U.S,Armt/ 
Medal of Honor 




HEN HIS BROTHER was killed in 
Korea, Sergeant Rosser re-enlisted. Several months 
later he, too, was in Korea— pinned down on a hill 
near Pongil-li by Red fire. He saw it cutting 
up the platoon. Suddenly he jumped to his feet. 
.Alone, and armed only with a carbine and a gre- 
nade, he charged a Red bunker and cleaned it out. 
He dropped into a trench and dispatched five more 
enemies. Twice, under heavy fire, he returned for 
more ammunition, then renewed his attack. His 
one-man fight was furious— and short. It ended with 
13 enemy dead, the American platoon saved, and a 
score settled for Sergeant Ronald Rosser. 

"When a man gets back from Korea," says Ser- 
geant Rosser, "it does him good to see people— like 
you— investing hard-earned money in our country's 
Bonds. Sure, Bonds are a practical way to save 
money, I know. But they also help build production 
power — io arm, equip and protect men overseas. 
And that's proof to people like me that people like 
you really care."

OUR PAROLE PROBLEM 



Every four and a half minutes today, 
tomorrow and every day in the predict- 
able future, a criminal will commit mur- 
den, manslaughter, rape or assault to kill 
somewhere in the United States. Even 
more shocking than the mounting crime 
rate are the actual prison terms served by 
culprits convicted of these monstrous of- 
fenses. F.B.I, statistics reveal that mur- 
derers, including those given life sen- 
tences, are confined for a median term 
of less than nine years. The median 
prison term for manslaughter is three 
years and three months. Rapists are kept 
behind bars only three years and two 
months. 

These men, and nearly two million 
other e.\-convicts guilty of lesser crimes, 
are released from prison on parole before 
they have completed their minimum sen- 
tences. Few laymen know, perhaps, that 
practically all prisoners in state and Fed- 
eral institutions are granted paroles, in 
addition to time off for good behavior, 
which cut substantially the sentences im- 
posed on them. Save for the occassional 
incorrigible who is a chronic trouble- 
maker or a professional tough guy, the 
convict whose prison term is not reduced 
is as rare as the legendary crook with a 
heart of gold. The conscientious citizens 
who sit on state parole boards are keenly 
aware of their responsibilities to society 
and criminals. It is not their fault that 
the present parole system has failed dis- 
mally in preventing crime. 

Another set of F.B.I, statistics points 
up the urgency of the problem. During 
the first half of 1952, more than one 
million major crimes were committed 
throughout the country. In that period 
the F.B.I, received 423,214 sets of fin- 
gerprints of people arrested by state and 
local police — and 60.0 per cent already 
were on file in Washington for offenses 
of a serious nature. According to a state-

EDITOR'S NOTE 

We of the Police and Peace Ofii- 
CERS' JoiRNAL realized that all of 
Commissioner Hickey's words are not 
relevant in California; however, we 
do feel that his article will be of in- 
terest to all the readers of this maga- 
zine. 

Parole has long been a problem to 
everyone connected with law enforce- 
ment work. It is less than a year since 
a paroled convict took the life of Offi- 
cer Robert Walters in San Francisco. 
Only last month Officer Harold Chap- 
man of the San Jose Police Department 
was sent to the hospital with a bullet 
wound in each arm, one in the leg and 
another in the shoulder as the result 
of an encounter with an exconvict. 

These incidents, which to a smaller 
degree are repeated day in and day 
out, are naturally distressing to peace 
officers. Chief Ray Blackmore of the 
San Jose Police Department had quite 
a bit to say about paroled convicts 
after Chapman had been wounded. 

Still, we hold the highest respect for 
the men who head the California Adult 
Authority. Certainly no man in Cali- 
fornia is more interested in the welfare 
of peace officers than Charles Dullea, 
a former San Francisco Chief of Po- 
lice who is now a member of the 
authority. Still he, and his fellow- 
board members are forced by circum- 
stances to turn convicts loose each 
month. Many of these men will make 
good, but some are dangerous. Some 
of them will wind up taking pot shots 
at policemen. How do you get around 
these problems.* Commissioner Hickey 
has some suggestions. 



nient made in 1948 by J. Edgar Hoover, 
director of the F.B.I., 78.1 per cent of 
the 14,000 most dangerous public ene- 
mies had been granted paroles during 
their criminal careers. In checking the 
dossiers, it was not uncommon to find 
men who had been given three to five 
paroles. Some had been paroled as much 
as ten times, yet they still were leading 
lives devoted to crime and violence. 

I want to make it clear at the outset 
that although I am a policeman at heart, 
1 recognize that the reformation of crim- 
inals cannot be achieved by punitive 
measures alone. Thirty-five years of ex- 
perience as an investigator for the Pink- 
ertons, the Department of Justice, a 
chief county detective and Commissioner 
of the Connecticut State Police have con- 
vinced me of the need for a constructive 
and continuing program that gives a man 
who has run afoul of the law a chance to 
rehabilitate himself. When properly su- 
per\ised. parole is — or should be — the 
best method \et de\ised for helping a 
former criminal redeem himself in a com- 
'iiunity as a law-abiding citizen. \Vith- 
out parole, there would be a terrific in- 
crease in prison riots and the incidence 
of crime would be much greater than it 
is today. 

This is especially true in view of the 
fact that crime is essentially a youth 
problem. Few adults become criminals 
after they reach maturity. Again, figures 
are more eloquent than a thousand ser- 
mons. Fully 30 per cent of the people 
arrested last \ear for crimes against 
property were less than twenty-one years 
old and about 70 per cent were first 
offenders. Kids deserve every chance to 
demonstrate that one mistake was an ac- 
cident or maybe a foolish impulse of the 
moment, and they get ample opportunity 
to prove it by being put on probation and 

parole. „ >. ,

Forty- Eight Hours on Saturday 



If the population of San Franciscq_or 
Los Angeles were doubled overnight the 
police departments of those cities would 
be pressed almost beyond their endurance. 
Probably they would handle the situa- 
tion, but it would be rough going, par- 
ticularly if the large majority of the 
newcomers were Mexican nationals who 
spoke no English. 

Incredible as it may seem, this is ex- 
actly what happens in dozens of Califor- 
nia communities when the hot weather 
rolls around and the crops ripen each 
summer. 

Woodland is one of these communi- 
ties. This thriving little city just 21 
miles northwest of Sacramento on United 
States Highway 99 is the heart of Yolo 
County and when harvest time arrives 
everyone in \'olo County gets busy — in- 
cluding the police. 

Yolo County is big. It stretches from 
the small city of Bryte on the Sacramento 
River to well on the other side of ^Vin- 
ters where Putah Creek Hows from Clear 
Lake and annually attracts hordes of 
small mouth black bass fishing enthusi- 
asts. It consists almost entirely of rich 
farm land and the crops are many and 
varied. They include everything from 
sugar beets to peaches, and it takes thou- 
sands of men to harvest them. IVIore 
thousands than the county could support 
the year round. The result is migrant 
labor. And invariably migrant labor 
brings about an increased police problem. 

Saturday night in Woodland is a big 
night for the migrant laborers of Yolo 
County. They crowd into the restau- 
rants, pack the taverns and spill out onto 
the streets. They dance, drink, eat and 
crowd the city's aging prison to capacity. 
They provide Chief of Police Frank B. 
Elston and his sixteen man force with 24 
hours work for six days a week and 48 
hours on Saturday. If that sounds im- 
possible try spending some time on the 
Woodland Police Department on any 
summer Saturday night. Petty crime in- 
creases and as many as 54 inebriated rev- 
elers jam the drunk tank on weekends. 
Of these about twenty are held for court. 
The others are booked "release when 
sober." 

As Captain Leonard K. Murphy, six- 
teen year veteran on the force outs it, 
"Most of the migrant laborers are good 
men, but there are always about 100 or 
150 of them who will steal anything 
they can get their hands on." 



.Murphy points out that the large ma- 
jority of the Yolo County farm laborers 
are Mexican Nationals and adds that, for 
the most part, aside from occasional 
drinking sprees, they are pretty solid citi- 
zens. According to Murphy the "cutting 
class" of Mexican no longer visits \'olo 
County. Many of these Mexicans, how- 
ever, have entered the country illegally 
and present a series of perplexing prob- 
lems to the department. A standard ques- 
tion to an incoming Mexican prisoner is 
"are vou wet?" 




Chief Elston 

If they are wet — in other words have 
gone swimming or wading in the Rio 
Grande to gain entry to the United 
States — they are promptly deported. And 
as often as not they appear right back in 
Yolo County on the next plane or train. 

If the job of policing this busy little 
city appears tough, Frank Elston is more 
than enough of a man to handle it. The 
\Voodland Chief of Police towers six 
feet six inches and according to all re- 
ports every one of those 78 inches con- 
sists of tough, intelligent policeman. 

His record since taking over the lead- 
ership of the department has been excel- 
lent. Felonies have been held to a mini- 
mum. Burglaries are his worst worry. 
About five of these, mostly petty, are 
committed each month. Armed robbers 
find their way behind bars almost as fast 
as they try to pull a job in Woodland. 
Murders committed in the past all have 
been solved. 



Elston started his career as a peace 
officer shortly after being discharged 
from the army at the end of World War 
II. He went to work in the Yolo County 
Sheriff's office and by the time he was 
ready to run for election to his present 
post had been promoted to the rank of 
lieutenant. And in spite of his mankill- 
ing job, Elston finds time to retain his 
title as the outstanding golfer in Yolo 
County. 

His interest in golf is a natural one. 
He grew up next door to the municipal 
golf course in Sacramento County and 
was practically weaned on golf balls. 
Yoloites swear he can outdrive Sam 
Snead ball for ball. And although he 
does not have much time for his woods ■ 
and irons as he once did, he still takes 
strokes from no man. 

Elston's chief assistant and righthand 
man is Murphy, whose interest in police 
work goes back to the days when he 
worked with the Santa Cruz police de- 
partment in his spare time "just for the 
fun of it." 

The hobby continued when he moved 
to Watsonville and later, when he moved i 
to San Jose, he became one of the first ' 
officers to man a patrol car. In those days 
the men rode in the cruisers were called 
"the firing squad" and not without rea- 
son. For a while it seemed that every 
still and roadhouse that served the San 
Francisco Bay Area's urge to bypass the 
Eighteenth Amendment was located in 
Santa Clara County. Shooting it out: 
with crooks was a regular occupation 
with the patrol car boys. They were 
always in the first wave of attackers and ' 
always targets. 

Murphy went to Woodland in the 
middle thirties intending to go into the 
butcher business with his brother. Buf 
his love for police work got the best of 
him. Soon he was working for the Wood- 
land Police Department and has been 
there ever since, rising through the ranks 
to his present post. 

He finds fingerprinting to be the most 
interesting and productive angle of his 
work. 

"I started to study fingerprints in 1938 
and have been following developments 
ever since," he says. "A fellow has to 
study if he is going to keep up with the 
work. There are classifications of the 
classifications of the originals now. Actu- 
ally each new classification makes the 
work easier, but you have to keep up

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

A Tea Party With Death 



June, 1953 



At 2:20 o'clock one June afternoon 
five years ago two San Francisco police 
detectives were driving past the new 15- 
story U. S. Appraiser's Building at San- 
some and \Vashington Streets. They 
were on their way to report for duty at 
Hall of Justice headquarters near-by. 

"We're twenty minutes late already," 
remarked Assistant Inspector Van P. 
Denike, now full inspector. "What are 
we going to tell 'em?" 

Before Inspector John Breen could an- 
swer, a most spectacular excuse was 
dropped into their laps, almost literally, 
out of a clear sky. 

Into the street from the entrance of 
the Appraiser's Building darted a uni- 
formed Federal guard who began flag- 
ging them down with one hand and ges- 
turing toward the top of the structure 
with the other. 

"Get out of the way, there!" he 
shouted. "Do youvvant to get killed? 
She's going to jump!" 

"Who is?" asked Breen, jamming on 
the brakes. 

"That Chinese woman. Escaped from 
Immigration Detention. Don't come any 
closer." 

The guard went off to warn other 
traffic while the inspectors pulled quickly 
to the opposite curb and got out. Their 
eyes traveled swiftly up the white facade. 
Perched on a parapet at the level of the 
fourteenth floor, and moving fitfully, was 
a tiny figure in black. 

As they hurried into the building De- 
nike said : 

"We're on Federal territory; do you 
think we ought to get mixed up in this?" 

"She's blocking traffic, isn't she?" re- 
sponded Inspector Breen. 

They ascended to the thirteenth floor 
where the Immigration Detention Ward 
is situated. A worried official met them. 

"We're from the Inspectors Bureau," 
said Breen. "We don't want to butt in, 
but if we can be of any help . . ." 

"Glad you're here," said the official 
with obvious relief. "This is a new ex- 
perience for us. Some painters left a lad- 
der . . . We don't want to do anything 
that might cause her to jump." 

The police inspectors were taken at 
once to a large open-air exercise court at 
the southwest corner of the same floor. 
The two outer walls of this court met at 
right angles and were sixteen feet high, 
making them level with the fourteenth 
floor. The inner walls, also meeting at 
right angles, were those of the building 
proper, and rose to the roof. 



By Neil Hitt 

Her knees drawn up, her bare feet 
planted before her, the Chinese woman 
was sitting lengthwise on the narrov\' top 
of the Sansome street wall. Clothed in 
thin jacket and pantaloons of black al- 
paca, the distressed creature seemed ob- 
livious of the chill breeze that tossed her 
jet black hair as she sobbed bitterly into 
a purple handkerchief. Below her was 
the ladder by which she had ascended. 
There was a similar ladder against the 
Washington street wall. As they led no- 
where except to death, painters had not 
bothered to remove them pending com- 
pletion of their job. 

"You'll catch cold up there. Come 
down where it is warm. There has been 
a bad mistake and we will clear it up 
right away. Everything will be all right. 
Come down now." 

One of her Chinese-American attor- 
neys. Jack Sing, was standing at the foot 
of the Sansome wall ladder pleading with 
her in the Cantonese dialect. She knew 
no English. 

As her attorney started up the ladder 
she suddenly swung her legs to the outer 
side of the wall and raised herself on her 
hands as though preparing to launch her- 
self into space. Chow stepped down and 
she cautiously resumed her position. 

She was a woman of middle age named 
Wong Loy, the purported wife of Lok 
Gin Hop, a well-to-do herbalist of Aber- 
deen, Washington. She had arrived in 







January and, after more than four 
months of detention, had been told that 
proof of her marriage to Lok in a small 
Chinese village 23 \'ears previous was un- 
satisfactory and she would be returned to 
China. At two that afternoon, when 
detainees had been let into the exercise 
court, she had found the ladder. 

Accompanying her lamentations were 
a score or more of other Oriental detain- 
ees in the court. They howled, moaned 
and uttered piercing little cries, as , 
though their fate was somehow bound up i 
with hers. 

In the face of a situation in which all 
other agencies appeared helpless. Inspec- 
tor Breen took o\er. 

"Denike, you get hold of the fire de- 
partment while I get this court cleared. 
All right, inside everybody !" He turned 
to an interpreter. "Tell all these people 
to go indoors." 

The claque of mourners was herded J 
into the building. 

Bells and sirens sounded below and ' 
presently men in black and white helmets 
began pouring out of elevators at the 
thirteenth floor. They were admonished 
against any forcible attempt at seizure. 
This woman was a national of another 
countr\', it might yet be determined that 
she had been denied entry wrongfully, 
and there was still a chance she could be 
persuaded to come down. 

"I'm afraid a life net on the street' 
le\el wouldn't do any good," said a bat- 
talion chief. "It's too far down and be- 
sides I don't trust this wind. The best 
we can do is rig a stationary net along, 
the windows below her." 

A ship's cargo net, six by twelve feet, 
was hung hammock-like between two 
windows of the twelfth floor. But it was 
a dubious makeshift affair extending only 
about a third the length of the parapet- 
above it. The woman could clear if 
easily if she stood up to jump or could 
avoid it altogether by moving far enough 
along the parapet. 

More than an hour had passed and 
afternoon papers already were carrying 
headlines of the threatened death plunge. 
Literally thousands of persons had been 
attracted to the scene. Everywhere with- 
in line of sight streets were choked for 
several blocks and windows swarmed 
with the curious. Police strove to keep 
the corner clear while news reels 
whirred, newscasters talked excitedly

WARE HEADS PEACE OFFICERS

Uniteii States Marshal for the Southern 
Judicial District, was elected president 
of the California Peace Officers' Asso- 
ciation during the afternoon session of 
the final dav of their convention May 14.

Commission rules amendment that would

Ware succeeded John R. Bennett, 
Chief of Police of Riverside. Other of- 
ficials of the association elected included 
Chief Lester J. Divine, Oakland, first 
vice president; Sherif? Beverly G. Broad- 
dus, Mendocino County, second vice 
president ; Chief Adam E. Jansen, San 
Diego, third vice president ; Sheriff Car- 
los A. Sousa, Stockton, fourth vice presi- 
dent, and Chief William A. Hydie, Palo 
Alto, secretary-treasurer. 

Earlier in the afternoon the convention 
adopted almost a score of resolutions in- 
cluding one urging the California Legis- 
lature to continue and increase civil 
defense appropriations. 

Another resolution called upon the 
legislature to pass two Assembly bills 
now pending which would provide 
broader training programs for regular 
and reserve police officers. 

Governor Earl Warren was asked to 
consider the appointment of a peace of- 
ficer of the state to one of the two posi- 
tions on the California Youth Authority 
recently created by the legislature. 

In another resolution the group urged 
its membership to fight any attempts to 
include police and fire personnel within 
the Social Security plan. The resolution 



alter the present police radio frequency 
in the 2000-3000 kilocycle band was pro- 
tested by the association on the grounds 
that its "dislocation would not be in the 
best public interests." 

After Monday registration and a meet- 
ing of the executive committee in the 
evening, the convention opened formally 
in the Montgomery Theater of the San 
Jose Civic Auditorium Tuesday morn- 
ing. 

High on order of business was a re- 
port by the committee on welfare, pen- 
sions and relief. 

Police Chief H. W. Hutchinson of 
Santa Monica read a report which re- 
commended a fight against proposed 
Federal legislation that would include 
in Social Security all city, county and 
state employees not now eligible — with 
the exception of policemen and firemen. 

Hutchinson warned that although 
present bills in Washington still tend to 
exclude peace officers who have local 
systems, the whole idea should be op- 
posed. He maintained that once others 
are included the pressure may be on to 
fit other civil service positions into the 
whole scheme. 



Chief Hutchinson declared that it is 
now generally accepted that policemen 
and firemen should not attempt to serve 
at the ages necessary to social security 
provisions. He reminded the members 
that e\en in the world of sports — base- 
ball players, football professionals, ath- 
letes seldom reach the age of 40 while 
still actively engaged in their profession. 
He pointed out that the man on the beat 
is no less susceptible to sudden strain 
and physical exertion when an emergency 
arrives. He concluded that to approve 
Social Security as it now exists (pen- 
sions at 65) would be a recession from 
that philosophy. 

Hutchinson called attention to the 
fact that California now has a state re- 
tirement system available to all commu- 
nities and asked the convention mem- 
bership to help officers of smaller cities 
to attain membership in the system if 
thev do not have local plans. 

Earlier in the day John A. Pettis, 
deputy district attorney of Alameda 
County, reported on law enforcement 
bills now pending in the legislature. 
Among these he listed legislation against 
the widespread use of narcotics. In gen- 
eral new narcotics laws will provide stif- 
fer penalties. One bill would provide 
probation for first offenders. 




Chief Bi.ackmore 

One of the principal speakers at the 
convention was Attorney General Ed- 
mund G. Brown, who addressed the 
group Monday. During the talk Brown 
declared that at least four of the 16

WOMEN PEACE OFFICERS 



Mrs. Margaret M. Boyd of the Los 
Angeles Police Department was named 
president of the California ^Vomen's 
Peace Officers' Association during the 
final day of their convention which was 
held in conjunction with the California 
Peace Officers' Association conclave in 
San Jose May 1 1-14. 

Mrs. Boyd succeeds Mrs. Florence 
Wilson of the Arcadia Police Depart- 
ment as head of the women's group. 




Margaret Botd 

Other officers elected include Mrs. 
Margie Cate, Long Beach Juvenile Bu- 
reau, second vice president; Mrs. Betty 
Ward, Fresno Police Department, third 
vice president ; and Lucille Stroh, Comp- 
ton Police Department, secretary. 

Mrs. Janet Hickey, a host member 
with the San Jose Police Department, 
was elected first vice president. 

Earlier in the week the policewomen 
heard talks by Margaret V. Morten, 
chief trial deputy of the Santa Clara 
County District Attorney's office, and 
the Rev. Bernard Hubbard of the Uni- 
versity of Santa Clara. 

Mrs. Morten's talk, "Take the Wit- 
ness," was an informal discussion de- 
signed to brief the women peace officers 
on conduct in court and what to expect 
from both the prosecuting and defense 
attorneys. 

Her remarks were followed by a panel 
discussion on the role of the policewoman 
in the community. Participants included 



Sergeant Daisy Storms, Los Angeles Po- 
lice Department, as moderator; Mar- 
garet M. Boyd, Kathryn Sheldon and 
Audrey Fletcher, also of Los Angeles 
department. 

Mrs. Wilson was the featured speaker 
of the afternoon session. Captain Carol 
Williams of Travis Air Force Base spoke 
to the women Thursday morning and 
Re\'. Hubbard spoke to the women at a 
luncheon held in the Hotel St. Claire at 
noon. 

Father Hubbard called for a strong 
United States foreign policy in Asia and 
warned that there is strong pressure 
building up on the east coast to go along 
with England's outlook on Asian prob- 
lems. 

Following the official closing of the 
convention on the afternoon of May 14, 
the policemen joined the men's group 
that evening for a dinner at the Hawai- 
ian Gardens. San Jose Chief of Police 
Ray Blackmore and Santa Clara County 
Sheriff Howard Hornbuckle were official 
hosts for the evening. 



PRESIDENT'S REPORT 

I have been asked by President Jack 
Bennett to give a resume of the activities 
of our association for the past year. It is 
a privilege to bring you up to date on 
what we ha\e been accomplishing during 
what we consider to have been a very 
successful year, as brief as it was. 

W^e have of course held regularly 
planned meetings in the areas, in fact 
nine meetings were held, at carefully 
chosen cities so as to permit every pos- 
sible opportunity for all members to at- 
tend who could, and, incidentally, we 
have members as far south as Calexico 
and El Centro and north to Eureka, and 
east to Reno, that we cover a wide area. 
At every meeting we have had an out- 
standing speaker from whom we could 
get a cross section of the up-to-date trend 
in law enforcement work. These meet- 
ings were supported practically 100% 
in attendance. 

In addition there were board meetings 
held regularly, so that the real business 
of our association could be carried on in 
an efficient manner. The membership 
committees did an excellent job, so that 
we have added 42 members during the 
year. 

Our treasury is in a healthy condi- 
tion ; we have had three major money 



making projects, two of which were put 
on by the members of the San Diego Po- 
lice Department members and were most 
successful, and we are only sorry that 
none of the San Diego policewomen were 
able to be with us at this convention. 

Incidentally Alice Stebbins Wells, first 
policewoman in the L'nited States, is 
attending, and rode a bus all night to be 
here for the opening meeting. 

Just over this past weekend, our asso- 
ciation again sponsored a trip to San 
Quentin, with over 150 in attendance, 
with members representing 27 depart- 
ments. As usual our hosts at San Quen- 
tin were most hospitable, and gave us 
much informative knowledge of the re- 
habilitation work being carried on there, 
in addition to a very fine lunch and a 
most excellent show put on by the in- 
mate groups. 




Florence Wilson 



We are grateful to our police chiefs, 
sheriffs and superior officers who have 
been so gracious with their support and 
consideration, and particularly for mak- 
ing it possible for the women who are 
attending this convention to be here — 65 
members are in attendance representing 
30 departments. This kind of support 
and recognition pays off in greater effi- 
ciency and, more than that, creates the 
extra incentive to help make the job of

POLICE PLANNING 



June, 1953 



ii 



II 



It is a self evident fact that little of 
importance can be accomplished in any 
field without some form of plan, whether 
the enterprise be that of building a one- 
car garage or a cathedral ; and this is 
especially true as relating to law enforce- 
ment, in view of the many and varied 
demands now being made upon this vital 
department of public service. Further- 
more, it is regrettably true that the 
American police system has, for many 
years, failed to function at peak efficiency 
because it has been inhibited by multiple 
defects, one of the more deplorable being 
an utter lack of planning. Through 
earlier decades, many police departments 
and other enforcement agencies have 
blundered along with no directive fore- 
thought for current or future eventuali- 
ties, large or small, be they possible, 
probable or inevitable. Obviously, the 
result of such unwisdom is disaster, as 
well attested by public records. 

Outstanding Contribution 

Nevertheless, during recent years, it 
is indeed gratifying to note an increasing 
advancement in the field of law enforce- 
ment as a result of timely efforts on the 
part of certain exceptional persons; and 
a current contribution of outstanding im- 
portance is recognized in the book. Po- 
lice Planning, published by Charles G. 
Thomas, 301-327 Lawrence Avenue, 
Springfield, Illinois. This text is the 
most recent work of Professor O. AV. 
Wilson, Dean of the School of Crimi- 
nology, and Professor of Police Adminis- 
tration in the University of California 
at Berkeley. 

It is certain that Professor AVilson is 
well qualified to produce such a book. 
Shortly after 1920, he became a member 
of the police department in Berkeley, 
where he served under the man who has 
earned world acclaim as "The Father of 
.Modern Police Methods," Chief August 
Vollmer, also Professor of Police Admin- 
istration in the University of California. 
Wilson attended the University of Cali- 
fornia, and after securing his degree, did 
considerable graduate work. He accepted 
the appointment of chief of police at 
FuUerton, California, where he remained 
for two \ears, when he received a second 
invitation to serve as chief of police in 
Wichita, Kansas. This position he re- 
tained for twelve j'ears, and received the 
Oberlander Award as the best chief of 
police in the entire United States. Later, 
he accepted a professorship as research 
consultant at Harvard University, where 
he remained for one year. Professor

Vollmer having retired from active serv- 
ice in his position as Professor of Police 
Administration at the University of Cali- 
fornia, Professor Wilson returned to 
California to take the post vacated by his 
former chief. 

Long Experience 
Two years later, at the outbreak of the 
Second World ^Var, Professor \Vilson 
entered the armed forces overseas as a 
colonel in the Army Office of Military 
Government, and, following the end of 
hostilities, had charge of policing all of 
Germany. Eventually, he returned to 
Berkeley to resume his present position. 




B. C. Bridges 

In addition to his numerous other 
obligations and commitments, Professor 
^Vilson has, for over fifteen years, been 
a consultant for the Public Administra- 
tion Service of Chicago, Illinois, under 
whose auspices he has conducted surveys 
and reorganization of over thirty large 
metropolitan police departments through- 
out the United States and abroad. 

Professor ^Vilson's first book, Police 
Records, was published by the Public Ad- 
ministration Service of Chicago, as was 
another of his texts, Distrihutinn of the 
Patrol Service. His work. Police Admin- 
istration , was printed by McGraw-Hill, 
and the publisher of his current work. 
Police Planning, is listed above. In addi- 
tion to these substantial texts, Professor 
Wilson has presented many other articles 



and papers, numbering well over a hun- 
dred, dealing with law enforcement, and 
appearing in numerous outstanding na- 
tional periodicals. 

Unique Addition 

Despite the number of Professor \Vil- 
son's literary contributions, they all are 
exceptional, since each has furnished a 
concise answer to some police problem 
which previously lacked an adequate so- 
lution, just as does his present book which 
also represents a unique though none the 
less essential addition to modern police 
methods. Time was when law enforce- 
ment was looked upon as calling for 
brawn rather than brain ; however, that 
time is past. Today, law enforcement is 
recognized as a highly specialized science 
in which a text such as Professor Wil- 
son's is destined to feature significantly. 

The book's title, Police Planning, is 
most appropriate ; the subject matter is 
precisely that. In short, it consists of a 
set of clear and simple instructions for 
employing the best possible methods of 
handling any and all problems likely to 
arise in the many and diversified activities 
of police service ; and I can think of no 
better way of illustrating this than to 
present the book's Foreword and Table 
of Contents: 

"Preface 

"It is the purpose of this book to an- 
alyze the planning process in a police 
department and to discuss the tasks of 
planning within the police field without 
regard to their scope. The book is in- 
tended to guide the police planner in the 
accomplishment of his immediate tasks 
no matter what the level of his planning 
responsibilities. It is intended to assist 
the stafif of the planning unit in a large 
department, the part-time plans officer in 
a small department, and the heads of 
functional units who are responsible for 
operational planning in their special 
fields. It is also intended as a guide to a 
complete police department survey that 
has as its objective the modernization of 
the organization structure and all oper- 
ating procedures. 

"This broadness of purpose makes it 
necessary to consider the planning tasks 
from the point of view of the complete 
over-all survey. The reader should un- 
derstand, however, that the component 
parts are contained within this broad 
treatment of the total planning tasks ; it 
encompasses plans and planning problems 
of lesser magnitude, and the police officer 
who has a planning responsibility of lim-

Sousa Heads Sheriffs Group 



Page 11 



Carlos A. Sousa, the transplanted foot- 
ball coach who is now sheriff of San 
Joaquin County, was elected president of 
the California Sheriff's Association at the 
group's annual con\ention held in Stock- 
ton last April. 

Other officers elected to association 
posts were Sheriff Max Mayfield of Co- 
lusa County, first vice president; J. L. 
McCoy, Monterey County, second vice 
president ; Jack Ross, Santa Barbara 
County, sergeant-at-arms, and Captain 
James Pascoe of Los Angeles County, 
secretary-treasurer. 

Featured speaker at the convention, 
which was presided over by Sheriff W. 
O. Justice of ^Lldera County, outgoing 
president, was Earl Warren, Governor 
of California, who declared that law en- 
forcement in California is the equal to 
that in any state in the Union and better 
than in most states. 

Warren, speaking during the afternoon 
session of the second day of the conven- 
tion, declared that no state in the nation 
is confronted with such problems in law 
enforcement as California. 

"Since I have taken office as Gover- 
nor, we have grown by 4,00,0000 people 
and we have absorbed them without dis- 
order or conflict between the old resi- 
dents and newcomers and with a mini- 
mum of law violations," the governor 
declared. 

Governor Warren stated that this is 
remarkable in view of the fact that it is 
impossible for law enforcement officers 
to know and recognize all the bad actors 
and habitual offenders who enter the 
state with the massive influx of new- 
comers. 

According to the Governor, a large 
degree of the credit for suppressing law 
violations in California goes to the sher- 
iff's officers of the 58 counties. 

"I sincerely doubt that this could have 
been done in most states of the union," 
the Governor concluded. "I am proud of 
you men." 

Governor Warren warned that high- 
way conditions in California will become 
worse unless immediate steps are taken 
to build adequate roads. 

AVarren pointed out that there were 
3600 persons killed and 103,000 injured 
on California highways last year, and 
urged each delegate to lend his support 
to efforts being made now to improve the 
state's highways. 

The Governor declared that another 
vital problem facing all peace officers is 
the series of attacks being made on the 



state's ci\il defense organization. He 
urged the delegates to unite and press 
for the expansion of the civil defense pro- 
gram luuil it becomes a local government 
agenc\'. 

Plans now being made to eliminate re- 
gional offices and to concentrate the ad- 
ministration of civil defense in metro- 
politan areas are entirely wrong, accord- 
ing to Warren. 

"If a bomb falls in the state," he de- 
clared, "much of the responsibility of 
law enforcement will fall on your shoul- 
ders. I herefore you must urge that re- 
gional offices of civil defense be retained 
to enable your men to direct the pro- 
grams of your communities." 




Carlos Sousa 

\\'arren declared there is no choice in 
the matter . . . either, the setup is state- 
wide or the entire California civil de- 
fense program will be wiped out. 

The Governor said it would be crimi- 
nal for him to say that California's civil 
defense is adequate when he knows it is 
not. 

"We must fight those who would elim- 
inate regional offices," he concluded. "To 
direct defense in the back country areas 
from a metropolitan area is just one step 
away from state control." 

California Attorney General Edmund 
G. Brown warned against an inadequate 
county jail system and the dangers of leg- 
islative investigating committees usurp- 
ing the powers of the judicial. 

During his address he declared that in 
counties where jails are inadequate, most 
of the fault lies in the people for not 



making funds available with which to 
cope with the problem. 

Brown warneil that it is a mistake for 
the ta\pa\er to belie\e he is saving money 
by keeping misdemeanor criminals in jail 
for short terms and then releasing them. 
He said that in reality this is a waste of 
money. 

The attorney general declared that the 
only jail system which will serve the peo- 
ple properly is one of rehabilitation oper- 
ated in conjunction with the California 
Adult Authority. In this manner, he 
declared, petty criminals are not just 
"turned loose," they are, or at least are 
given the opportunity to be, cured first. 

Brov.-n pointed out that the big danger 
in investigating committees is their as- 
suming too much power and changing 
their roles as lawmakers to that of 
judges. 

"The trend in that direction is a dan- 
gerous one," Brown warned. "Investi- 
gating committees should not charge, tr\' 
and condemn people without trials." 

The 1*554 convention will be held at 
Lake Tahoe. 



COSTLY ACC8DENTS 

1 raflSc accidents are costing Califor- 
nians almost a million dollars a day, the 
California Highway Patrol reported re- 
cently 

The sum is figured by multiplying 
$95,000, the estimated cost represented 
by one traflSc fatality, by 10, the average 
daily traffic death toll in the state. 

1 he sum also includes losses incurred 
in injury and property damage accidents 
such as loss of wages; medical and hos- 
pital expenses; auto repair and other 
property damage bills ; and overhead in- 
surance costs. Payment of insurance 
claims is included in wage loss. 

J he Patrol said the state's traflSc acci- 
dent bill for 1952, with a provisional 
death toll of 3,618, was $343,710,000. 

Officials pointed out that last year's 
multi-million dollar burden was being 
shared by others than those directly in- 
\olved in accidents, especially through 
higher insurance rates. 

As an example of what the $343 mil- 
lion would have bought if used for con- 
structive purposes, the Patrol said it 
would have paid for a multi-lane divided 
highway, excluding bridges and other 
major engineering structures, from Ore- 
gon to Mexico and from the Pacific 
Ocean to California's eastern border.

PROFESSOR OF POLICE 



Picture yourself a junior attending 
high school when, to your surprise, you 
find the box next to you, yes, the one 
you've been stealing pencils and copying 
tests from, is a fingerprint and photog- 
raphy expert for the city police depart- 
ment. 

This perhaps could have been your sit- 
uation if vou were attending Berkeley 
High in 1923. At 15 years of age Wil- 
lard E. Schmidt was recognized as an 
authority on fingerprinting and photog- 
raphy, having already appeared before 
several superior courts to testify as an 
expert in this field. Retracing some 45 
years back to 1908 in Berkeley, Califor- 
nia, Willard E. Schmidt was born. Wil- 
lard's keen interest in swimming and 
athletics during his early childhood ac- 
counted for many hours spent in the 
Y.M.C.A. where he received counseling 
and guidance. His objectives were soon 
narrowed to the field of police work, 
which he began enthusiastically to fol- 
low. 

August Vollmer (often called "Father 
of the Modern Policeman") was highly 
instrumental in the development of this 
young boy. Seeing his intense desire to 
absorb whatever knowledge concerning 
police procedure he could, Vollmer al- 
lowed "Huck" (as he was nick-named 
by the department) to work part-time 
for the force. "Huck" realized the op- 
portunities this presented and began to 
spend all his extra hours watching and 
absorbing. He was quick to adapt him- 
self to new techniques. While attending 
high school he worked with fingerprint- 
ing, photography records and patrolling. 

The pinacle of success is the desire to 
succeed and therefore note that Willard 
werked continually two and one-half 
years for the Berkeley Police Depart- 
ment without pay. He donated his serv- 
ice in return for knowledge. 

Fate had somehow decided that Wil- 
lard Schmidt should begin his official 
law enforcement duties early. In 1926 
"Huck's" good friend in charge of the 
photography and fingerprint laboratory 
suffered an injury which forced his re- 
tirement and, be it a stroke of fate, 
"Huck" was the only available person 
with the knowledge to operate the lab- 
oratory. Of course he was given the job 
and placed on the payroll at the unus- 
ually low age of 18. 

He worked efficiently for eight years 
in the record division. During this pe- 
riod he had developed into an outstand- 
ing student of "Yawara" (Commando 



Judo). Outstanding enough to be chosen 
to tour as one of a group of demonstra- 
tion experts. It was during this demon- 
stration tour that Schmidt factured his 
neck. This injury forced him to enter 
the patrol division where he worked in 
almost every department, from the traffic 
patrol to acting patrol sergeant for two 
and one-half years. He served several 
more years in various other details and 
from each gained considerable informa- 
tion. 

One day while making a routine pick- 
up of some merchandise, Schmidt moved 
too quickly while standing a little off- 
balance and reinjured his neck, this time 
requiring a half body cast to properly 
mend the injury. Due to danger of re- 
current injury to the cervical vertebrae, 
Schmidt was forced to leave the depart- 
ment. He was retired from the Berkeley 



City Police Department in 1938 with a 
disability pension. 

Realizing he would like to continue 
police work, "Huck" enrolled in the San 
Jose State Police School, at that time 
directed by AVilliam A. ^Viltburger, one 
time sergeant over Schmidt on the Berke- 
ley Force. Recalling Schmidt's abilities 
in photography and fingerprinting. Wilt- 
burger hired "Huck" to teach several 
classes. Schmidt now recalls how he 
would lecture to a group of students 
during the morning, only to find himself 
sitting with those same students in an- 
other class during the afternoon. He 
spent two years attending school and 
teaching classes before receiving a great 
opportunity at Sacramento Junior Col- 
lege. The job called for a director of the 
police school there. Schmidt at this time

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

Officer Of The Month 



Page 1 .1 



When San Jose Patrolmen John AL-it- 
tern and Harold Chapman reported for 
duty on the Sunday morning of Meriio- 
rial Day weekend, they took it for grant- 
ed most of their day's work would be 
concerned with handling holiday traffic. 

But before the day was half over a 
quiet residential neighborhood on their 
beat had been rocked with a gun duel, 
a desperate three time loser lay dead and 
one of the officers was on his way to the 
hospital with four bullet wounds. 

For their courage and presence of 

mind in tracking down and rendering 

I harmless a trigger-happy wouldbe ban- 

' dit and killer Mattern and Chapman 

have won the Police .and Pe.ace Of- 

' FicERs' Journal's Certificate of Merit 

: and a total of $50 in United States 

Savings bonds. 

The gunman, whose body was identi- 
fied later from fiingerprints and tattoos 
as that of Carl Ernest Clayton, 33, 
made the fatal mistake of answering a 
call to surrender with gunfire. 

Four of his shots hit Chapman — in 
the shoulder, leg and in each arm. An- 
other whipped through Mattern 's uni- 
form shirt sleeve, a fraction of an inch 
from the shoulder. 

But at the time Mattern didn't notice 
it. He saw his partner fall and their 
quarry spring out from the shelter of a 
garage to take aim at the wounded offi- 
cer's head. 

Disregarding his own safety, Mattern 
sprang forward emptying his service re- 
volver at the bandit, who staggered and 
fell before he could carry out his obvious 
intention of delivering the coup de grace 
to Chapman. 

The wounded officer, a World War 
n veteran with four years' service in 
the department, meanwhile ignored ad- 
vice to roll out of the line of fire. He 
and his partner had tracked this suspect 
down. He had shouted "come out and 
surrender." He had been shot and now 
his brother officer was in danger. So he. 
Chapman, was still in this. 

Instead of rolling away out of danger 
Chapman struggled slowly, painfully to 
his feet. But by that time reinforce- 
ments had arrived. Detectives Ross Don- 
old and Charles Murray joined the gun 
duel, and their's and Mattern's fire had 
already killed Chapman's assailant. 

The dead gunman's clothes contained 
no identification. However, fingerprints, 
the tattoos and a birthmark soon estab- 
lished bevond doubt that he was the Carl 



QUANDARY 

When the time came to award 
the Certificate of Merit and $50 
defense bond for outstanding po- 
lice work this month, the Police 
AND Peace Officers' Journal 
wound up in a bit of a quandary. 
We knew who should be reward- 
ed, all right, but the trouble was 
it was two people. 

Any time an officer sheds blood 
while defending the community 
he has sworn to protect, we feel 
that officer has contributed an out- 
standing service to his profession. 
So, when Officer Harold Chapman 
of the San Jose Police Department 
fought on, after being wounded 
four times by Carl Ernest Clay- 
ton, an exconvict who chose to 
fight rather than heed Officer 
Chapman's order to surrender, we 
decided the officer deserved the 
Officer of the Month Award. It 
was that simple. 

But how about Officer John 
Mattern, also of the San Jose Po- 
lice Department, who probably 
saved his buddy's life when he 
stood above the wounded police- 
man and delivered the final, deci- 
sive bullets into Clayton's body.' 
If Chapman had performed a spe- 
cial service, Mattern's had been 
doubly outstanding. He had not 
only saved his fellow officer from 
what appeared to be sure death, 
he had sent a dangerous criminal 
to await his final day in court in 
the land beyond the curtain . . . 
and we do not mean the Iron 
Curtain. 

This posed a considerable prob- 
lem. We could not under any 
circumstances award a bond to 
Officer Chapman and ignore Offi- 
cer Mattern. By the same token 
we could not reward Officer Mat- 
tern and let Officer Chapman's 
heroism go unnoticed. Eventually 
we hit upon a logical solution. 
The prize is easy enough to split. 
So, instead of awarding a S50 
bond to one officer we are pre- 
senting both Chapman and Mat- 
tern with a $25 bond. And in 
doing so, we would like to say 
that we realize that both these 
men deserve far more than our 
small contribution. 



K. Clayton who had ser\ ed time for rob- 
bery and car theft in the prisons of three 
states. And he had been paroled on each 
occasion — from Colorado state prison 
after serving two years; from Nevada 
state prison after a few months, and 
(iiKilly from San Quentin, which he left 
in l'^4'5 after a two-year hitch. 

There his printed record ended. But 
from still shaky witnesses officers got this 
account of how Clayton spent his last 
morning on earth. 

About 8:45 a.m. he arrived at the door 
of a supermarket carrying a paper bag 
ami shouted to clerk Harry Johansen 
inside: 

"Open the door! Come on, open the 
door. I've got a gun in this bag." 

Johansen tried to stall him off. 

"1 can't open the safe or the safe 
room, " he called through the glass door. 
"I don't have the keys or the combina- 
tion." 

The gunman got more insistent, the 
clerk kept on arguing and it wasn't long 
before Clayton began to attract the at- 
tention of passersby and a group of cus- 
tomers in the doorway of a neighboring 
store. 

Suddenly he stopped pounding on the 
door, turned and scurried through the 
supermarket's parking lot. One of the 
customers tried to follow him in a car 
but soon lost him in a maze of alleys and 
driveways. 

Alattern in a radio car was the first 
officer to arrive at the market in response 
to Johansen's call to police. The clerk 
gave him the wouldbe holdup man's de- 
scription. Within minutes Mattern was 
on the air with all available details on 
the appearance of the man who soon was 
to be so nearly his brother officer's mur- 
derer. 

Soon nearly two dozen policemen un- 
der the direction of Detective John Col- 
lins were conducting a systematic block- 
b\-block, yard-by-yard search of the still 
sleepy neighborhood. 

But it was some time later that Mat- 
tern, cruising along Schiele Av'enue, saw 
a man in a brown suit begin to cross the 
street at a corner half a block away. The 
man hesitated, stepped back on the curb, 
and, as the prowl car came nearer, 
turned and ducked into an alley. 

Mattern got on the radio for the sec- 
ond time. Soon the entire block was 
surrounded by police cars and uniformed 
and plainclothes officers on foot.

HIGHWAY SEMINAR 

High school teachers of driver educa- 
tion will have an opportunity to discuss 
present and future problems in highway 
transportation with outstanding leaders 
in the traffic field during a two-week 
seminar to be given in August at North- 
western University in Evanston, 111., ac- 
cording to Gerald O'Connell, TraiSc 
Institute director of training. 

The seminar presentation will be un- 
der the direction of F. R. Noffsinger, 
who is in charge of course development 
for the Traffic Institute. He was for- 
merly dean of the School of Commerce 
of St. Louis L'niversity and pioneered in 
training teachers in driver education 
when he was education consultant for the 
American Automobile Association. 
Classroom Value 

The course, Noffsinger said, will be of 
particular value for classroom teachers 
of driver education since it emphasizes 
classroom aspects rather than road in- 
struction. 

"For a long time now in handling 
traffic situations," Noffsinger said, "we 
have been running for the mop to clean 
up the mess scattered over our streets and 
highways in the form of accidents, in- 
juries and fatalities. We've got to stop 
the accident before it happens. We've 
got to get to the prospective driver before 



he is turned loose on the highway behind 
the wheel of a car. That is largely the 
job of the educator or of education — of 
the home before school age, of the ele- 
mentary school, the high school, or the 
college." 

Topics to be presented in the seminar 
for driver education teachers will be: 

Recent Findings in the Nature and 
Characteristic of the Driver. 

New Problems and Solutions in 1 raf- 
fic Engineering. 

The Advance of Driver Licensing. 

Developments in Traffic Law En- 
forcement. 

Programs of Driver Improvement. 

Improvements in Accidejit Investiga- 
tion. 

Latest Trends in Motor Vehicle De- 
sign and Construction. 

Modern Care and Maintenance of 
Motor Vehicles. 

Traffic Courts — Their Place in Traf- 
fic Safety. 

Traffic Laws — J heir Purpose and 
Function. 

Streets and Highways for 'Tomorrow. 

New Approaches in the Development 
of Public Support. 

Civil Liability in Accidents. 

How an Accident Happens. 

Successes in the Coordinated Attack 
on the 'Traffic I'roblem. 



Additional sessions will be devoted to 
the discussion of selected topics in driver 
education such as : improved methods, re- 
search, evaluation, visual aids, and spe- 
cial problems. 

Leading Authorities 

Leading traffic authorities who will 
present the various topics include : J. 
Stannard Baker, director of research. 
Traffic Institute; George Barton, traffic 
engineering consultant ; George Bowers, 
director of field service, 'Traffic Division, 
International Association of Chiefs of 
Police; and Traffic Institute staff includ- 
ing: Gerald O'Connell, director of train- 
ing; Glenn V. Carmichael and Frank 
Lowery, Training Division, and Edward 
C. Fisher, associate counsel and former 
judge of the Municipal Court of Lin- 
coln, Neb. 

The Seminar for Driver Education 
Teachers, to be offered for the first time 
August 10 to 21, is one of twelve spe- 
cialized courses to be held at the Traffic 
Institute of Northwestern University 
this summer for men and vv'omen work- 
ing in jobs devoted in part or in full to 
the task of reducing traffic accidents and 
congestion.

from the Traffic Institute, 1704 Judson 
Avenue, Evanston, 111.

OAKLAND PAY RAISE 



A proposed pay raise, a new traffic 
control system and modernization of 
equipment are the three top items of 
interest in the Oakland Police Depart- 
ment these days. 

The Oakland City Council has given 
preliminary approval to a plan which is 
expected to give three-year policemen 
and firemen a $42 monthly raise in 
August. 

If given final approval the council ac- 
tion means that in the future the pay 
scales for men in those brackets in both 
departments will be governed b\- the 
mean average of salary scales in the two 
highest salaried departments in Califor- 
nia with a population of more than 

inn.ooo. 

The resolution of the council does not 
detinitely set salaries for higher paid men. 
For the time being these will be regu- 
lated to be comparable to salaries in San 
Francisco as they will be there after the 
July 1 raise. 

In addition the council has given per- 
mission for the Police and Fire Co- 
ordinating Council to reintroduce the 
dropped request for a minimum 15 per 
cent differential between ranks. 

Perhaps of less departmental but more 
public interest has been the tryout now 
in progress of the so-called "Scramble- 
amble" system of traffic control. 

Under' Traffic Captain W. W. Ver- 
non, the department has been conducting 
what it frankly calls a "trial" of the plan 
at Oakland's busiest intersection, 14th 
Street and Broadway. 

The regular traffic cycle of 55 seconds 
has been extended to 75 seconds and 
while vehicular signal heads say "stop," 
all pedestrian signals say "walk." 

The result has been a crazy quilt effect 
with pedestrians going from one corner 
to the other by the shortest possible 
route. 

Since the system has been in effect 
only since last Monday, Captain Vernon 
and City Traffic Engineer Jay A. Czizek 
have not come to any final conclusions 
as to its worth. 

However, Vernon did say, after the 
first day's test, that there did not appear 
to be any imdue congestion during the 
peak rush hours. 

The system has had notable success in 
several American cities, particularly Sac- 
ramento. 

The third topic of current interest is 
the department's modernization pro- 
gram, particularly that taking place in 
the radio dispatch room in the City Hall. 



Under the direction of Record and 
Communications Captain Tom Rogers 
the radio room is being completely re- 
vamped to give the force what Rogers 
calls "The best dispatcher system I know 
of in police work." 

The project is being done at a cost of 
$10,000 and is expecteil to be completed 
next month. 

Briefly, there will be a long table on 
which will be four plastic cubicles at 
which phone operators will receive and 
make both outside and interdepartmental 
calls. 




Chief Devixe 

At the other end of the table will be 
two mikes with operators. 

Down the length of the table — 
through the cubicles and to the mike- 
men — will run a conveyor belt which 
will whisk messages and orders from the 
phone operators to the dispatchers. 

The order forms will be of two col- 
ors, one for routine orders and the other 
for emergencies. 

On the wall in front of dispatchers 
will be two huge maps of Oakland. 

One will be marked off into patrol 
beats with a light to indicate which beat 
car. The other will have a light for each 
inspector, special ser\ice and traffic car. 

Each light will show either red or 
green, depending on whether the car is 
in or out of service. 

The two dispatchers can change the 
color of each light by simply flicking 
the switch for each car, all switches be- 
ing located on a control board in front 
of them. 



Thus, radio room will know at a 
glance how many cars are available. 
This will replace the old complicated 
system of placing various colored rings 
on pegs to designate cars in and out of 
ser\ice. etc. 

Aside from this master control board, 
the room will be equipped with bank 
alarm boxes from most of Oakland's 
banks, a new wrinkle for Oakland. 

In addition, all points, state and inter- 
departmental teletypes will be moved 
from their present second floor location 
to the radio room. 

ADT and Civil Defense equipment is 
already located in the room, but the 
reno\ation program has introduced one 
important change. 

1 his is the installation of a master 
switch for the telephone system in the 
room which will be used only in time of 
great emergency or disaster. 

The sergeant in charge of the room 
can, by merely flicking the switch to one 
side, transfer half of the incoming phone 
calls to the city hall operators. 

The second main modernization pro- 
gram has been in vehicles. Over the past 
year the department has purchased 2 new 
Cadillac ambulances at the cost of ap- 
proximately $10,000 to replace old ones 
and the Traffic Division has recently 
purchased a $4500 Packard to cope with 
speeders on the new Eastshore Freeway. 

The Packard cost an initial $2800 and 
has had more than $1200 in special 
equipment added. 

Turning to the personal side of the 
force, first of all should be noted the 
recent promotion of Jack Brierly to Cap- 
tain of Police. Jack leaves his post as 
head of Special Services Squad to head 
the Juvenile Division, leaving Sgt. Wil- 
liam Plummer as acting head of the 
squad. 

Jack's promotion gives Oakland seven 
captains at this time, one more than 
previously. 

In honor of the event more than 300 
well wishers attended a dinner for the 
new captain at an Oakland restaurant. 
Present were policemen from both sides 
of the Bay, ranging in frank from patrol- 
men to chiefs, judges, newsmen and 
members of the bar. 

Jack's elevation leaves Lieutenants Bill 
MclVIurray and Harold Richardson next 
in line for a captain's spot.

PISTOL POINTING 



The San Francisco Matches 

On April 19th the San Francisco 
Police range held its second pistol tour- 
nament for the year with some 145 
shooters and some 1.45 inches of rain, 
mist and other forms of heavenly mois- 
ture. But in spite of this little inclem- 
ency, we know that it was a swell tour- 
nament with Norman Klipfel, as usual, 
taking the top aggregate prize. We have 
heard (off the record, of course) that 
there in an anti-Klipfel movement on 
foot at the range and a letter is being 
sent to Governor Warren (or maybe it 
was "Ike" — we ain't too surel to ha\e 




Ed Hamilton 

Norm gently transferred to some place 
far, far away where he can't get back on 
match days. But be that as it may, Norm 
is sure giving the hot-shots a good run 
for their money— in fact all the other 
highway patrolmen seem to be doing the 
same thing. Just look at their scores and 
you'll see what we mean. Of cours? 
there is always one disgruntled soul on 
the range and this time it happened to 
be Joe DeCola of Sunnyvale, who still 
has the veddy, veddy bad prevalence of 
shooting on the other fellow's target. Jo'' 
doesn't care whose target he shoots on 
just so its not his own, and he does it 
almost every match. We heard, via the 
grape-vine, that there is also an anti- 
DeCola group out to have Joe barred 
from all shooting ranges. But to sum it 
all hurriedly it spells "g-o-o-d." 

The March issue of the Journal car- 
ried a very nice article on Jack Chaney, 
the San Francisco Police mounted offi- 
cer, and his 15th daring rescut in the 
salty Pacific Ocean of two drowning per- 
sons. What the Journal didn't mention 
is that Jack is out at the range, and 
Oakland, too, every match and his ex- 



pert marksmanship has earned his a 
place on the S. F. Police Department's 
pistol team. 

During the month of March the pis- 
tol game lost one of its most ardent and 
jovial supporters in Paul Wormser. 
Paul passed away the same afternoon 
that he had been attending a pistol match 
meeting at the S. F. Police Department 
range. He had been a driving force in 
the promotion of marksmanship in the 
San Francisco Police Revolver Club and, 
being a top-notch shooter in his own right, 
he knew the game from a way back and 
was amiable and generous with his time- 
ly advice and help — especially to those 
just starting up the ladder of pistol 
shooting. Paul will be missed by many 
of the shooters and we all wish that he 
passes to better shooting. 

The referee, Ken Wilson, had good 
shooting for the range Sunday but his 
rewards were those green things people 
call mazooma, moola or in plain English 
— one dollar bills. The boys had an idea 
they could wheedle a few more points 
out of the statistical office so ponied up 
their bucks till the office looked like a 
freshly cut lawn it was so green. But 
the shooters ne\'er listen to our advice. 
Don't challenge a target via the dollar 
bill route as you very seldom get the 
folding green back. Cap AVadman was 
one who found that in scoping a target it 
always pays to look ALL over the tar- 
get. Cap had 9 shots around the black 
and swore by the nine gods one "must be 
a double" until Ken looked out on the 
edge of the paper and found the 10th 
hole — just on the paper as the target 
turned. Then to make matters worse 
Sergeant Bill Albrecht also claimed a 
double "someplace in the ten ring" and 
is still of the opinion and so much is he 
of the opinion he is having the protest 
atid the target sent to N.R.A. headquar- 
ters in Washington see if they can find 
that tenth shot as nobody at the range 
could. It will be most interesting to see 
how they get around that one back at 
the N.R.A. office. 

Ted Methot, Security Officer of the 
U. S. Immigration Service, has finally 
received his appointment as small arms 
instructor for the group out this-a-way. 
Ted spent a lot of time in the Army in 
Okinawa, Leyte and other parts of that 
region driving one of those cussed tanks 
so does know sumpin of shootin'. Any- 
how, Ted is giving the boys a good course 



of instructions in the fine art of hand- 
gunning. Ted is little — but, oh, boy! 

As you know by this time, components 
for shooting are getting a bit scarce and 
darn high in price with primers running 
in the neighborhood of $9 a thousand. 
We were quite amazed Sunday when we 
saw Grif Thompson with his loads us- 
ing those old German primers we used 
to buy for $1.50 a thousand. Grif has 
a supply left over but it's rapidly getting 
to the point of exhaustion. We wonder 
when the arms manufacturers are gonna 
take pity on us shooters and start low- 
ering the price of shooting equipment 
and components. 

As many of the shooters know. Ser- 
geant Cliff Smith was the assistant range 
officer for several years at the range. Last 
month he retired after 25 years of 
service. His place will be taken by Ser- 
geant Gus Palmeiri who, some tinie past. 




Carl Spiken 

used to labor here at the range. Gus is 
quite happy to be back at the Lakeside 
resort and the shooters will extend him 
a welcome hand. 

As you might recall (but we don't 
know why you should) last summer 
Harry Plummer, the Marin County 
shooting mentor, was quite seriously in- 
jured up near Donner Lake in an auto- 
mobile accident and is having the devil's 
own time getting back to normal. He 
is still able to get around again some- 
what like his old self but he is still shoot-

\Voodland's fingerprint file is a monu- 
ment to Murphy's interest. It is one of 
the most complete and modern possessed 
by any small police department in the 
state. 

Ranking next to Murphy in the de- 
partment are Lieutenant John L. Glaven, 
a six year veteran on the force and ser- 
gents Fred Martin, Douglas Armstrong 
and Archie Yelle. Yelle is an old time 
baseball player who once cavorted on 
the diamond for the San Francisco Seals.

Letters to the Editor 

1135 Harrison Street 
Santa Clara, California 
May 25, 1953 

Walter R. Hecox 

Editor, Police and Peace Officers' 

Journal 
Dear Sir: 

Your editorial lament about the ex- 
posing of crime, vice, corruption, etc., in 
San Francisco is execrable. You of 
course are writing what you think will 
please the eyes of your readers, the po- 
licemen of California. As a common 
citizen I view with alarm your feeble 
attempt to gloss over the corruption in 
the San Francisco Police Department 
with "Put up or shut up — name names, 
etc." The Chronicle didn't have to name 
names, and lo — the corruption is de- 
creasing — the cleanup is going on. 

AVhen the California State Crime 
Commission and the public-spirited citi- 
zens think that the Chronicle did a good 
job, I for one am satisfied. 

Also, the Chronicle notes that the 
honest cop keeps his mouth shut when he 
sees another cop grafting. This would 
make the honest cop more or less an ac- 
cessory, or perhaps almost a silent part- 
ner to a conspiracy. He should, if he is 
an honest cop, report the grafting cop, 
either to his superiors or the Grand Jury. 

So, how about an editorial saying that 
any cop who knows that grafting is tak- 
ing place and doesn't report it besmirches 
the reputation of the entire force, and 
la\s himself open to a charge of con- 
spiracy, or collusion at the most, — to 
public scorn of "cops" at the least. 
Yours very truly 
Harris F. Shaw, Jr. 

Editor's Note — Well, gentlemen, we 
just thought ive would let you knoiv 
iL'ho your friends arc.

TRAFFIC INSTITUTE 

A short course in traffic law for police 
will be offered for the first time at the 
Traffic Institute of Northwestern Uni- 
versity next July 6 to 17, according to 
Franklin M. Kreml, Institute director. 

The two-week course, to be ofifered 
during the Institute's annual Summer 
Institute for Traffic Training, will cover 
problems which a policeman is likely to 
face in his contacts with traffic violators 
and in his appearance in court, as well as 
giving him a better understanding of his 
role as protector of the common welfare. 

"Laws have been made to enable us 
to live together in peace and happiness," 
Kreml said. "It is the policeman's job 
to carry out one of the major purposes 
of law — the restraint of those persons 
and the prevention of those acts which 
tend to obstruct and limit the peace and 
happiness of society. He needs to fully 
understand the laws under which he 
operates." 

Subjects covered in the Traffic Law 
for Police Course include: traffic law, 
criminal and civil ; rules of evidence ; 
laws of arrest, model traffic legislation 
and its applications; steps in revising the 
traffic code ; selecting the proper charge 
in an accident case ; preparing traffic 
cases for prosecution ; coordination of 
police and court work, including the 
work of violations bureaus. 

\Vork projects will be carried out in 
connection with traffic legislation, hypo- 
thetical traffic cases, and a visit to a 
traffic court. 

The course is open to commanding 
officers of traffic divisions, police training 
personnel, officers assigned to the prose- 
cution of traffic cases; public informa- 
tion and liaison officers assigned to traffic 
commission or .safety council duties, and 
officers likely to be engaged in these 
activities.

LUCKY DRIVER 

The strange case of a man who was 
glad he got a traffic ticket has convinced 
the Cah'tornia Highway I'atrol there's 
at least one driver in the state who 
knows the value ot driving at safe 
speeds. 

On a recent holida\' jaunt with his 
family the man was citeti hy a Highway 
Patrolman for doing 70. 

After getting the ticket, he went on 
his wa\- but kept his speed below 50. Fi\e 
miles down the road a front tire blew 
out. The car swerved wildly but the 
driver managed to bring it to a safe stop. 

He didn't need a picture to show him 
what would have happened had he still 
been rolling along at 70. 

I he payoff came when he wrote to 
the commander of the Patrol area where 
he picked up the ticket, asking him to 
thank the officer who cited him, express- 
ing hope that other motorists would 
profit from his experience and saying he 
would "gratefully" pay the penalty. 

Commenting on the incident, Patrol 
Commissioner B. R. Caldwell agreed 
that the letter writer was fortunate to 
have been stopped. He said Patrol files 
are bulging with coroner's reports on 
hundreds of other motorists who weren't 
so lucky. 

"Drivers who imagine they can de- 
pend on luck to keep them out of acci- 
dents should remember that luck is us- 
ually bad when high speed is a factor," 
he said.

(Cuntinui'd from paijr 5) 
Clary's eagle eyed radio patrolmen plus 
a minimum fine of $250 for drunken 
driving. 

The minimum penalty was set as pol- 
icy some months ago by Judge Leonard 
M. Layton of the Roseville District 
Court. And since then lushes have been 
paying the fine or going to jail at the 
rate of about six a month. 

While keeping the immense waves of 
traffic flowing smoothly and safely along 
both major highways through the town 
is the biggest part of McCrary's and his 
16-nian force's job, there are plenty of 
other problems as well. 

Foremost of these is migrant labor. 
The city, located in one of the richest 
sections of the valley, also is the site of 
the Southern Pacific's main yards and 
shops. Nearby are the largest ice manu- 
facturing plants in the world, operated 
by the Pacific Fruit Express. 

Hundreds of men are required to pack 
and ice perishable farm produce for the 
east. McCrary cooperates closely with 
federal officials in apprehending illegal 
("wetback") immigrants attracted from 
Mexico by seasonally high wages. 

Major crime is rare in the city, and 
when it does occur McCrary's depart- 
ment has a record of 75 per cent arrests 
and convictions. 

But McCrary is a firm believer in 
the proverbial 16-to-l ratio in the value 
of prevention over "cure." He doesn't 
like to send minor criminals, especially 
juveniles, to jail, and it was on his recom- 
mendation that the city council appointed 
a full time juvenile officer before the 
teenage problem got badly out of hand, 
as it has in some other communities. 

Teenage delinquency has fallen to a 
n?vv low since the juvejiile officer, L. A. 
Daniell, took over. Daniell has been 
able to turn most of the local offenders 
— and even some out-of-town kids — over 
to their parents or the California Youth 
Authority. This, of course, saves them 
from beginning their years of maturity 
'virh a criminal record. 

I he present Roseville department 
comes within about $22,000 of paying 
for itself out of fines and parking meter 
revenue, which totaled some $43,500 
during the present fiscal year. The rest 
of the department's $65,563 appropria- 
tion came out of revenues from munici- 
pally-owned utilities. 

The department is not much more 
than 30 years old. LTntil 1921 law en- 
forcement was handled by a town mar- 
shal, the last of whom was Lou B. Allen.

inent cart-er, was the fomuiff ami first 
chief of the police department. 

At first he was its only member. He 
kept office hours in a pariced automobile 
near the Southern Pacific depot. His 
communication system during an emer- 
gency was a red light iiung on a power 
pole nearb\'. When a Roseville resident 
phoned tor a policeman in those days, 
the operator would Hash the red light to 
summon Allen. 

This system went into limbo when 
Allen was authorized by the city council 
to add to his staff. He continued to serve 
as chief until 1931, when he was suc- 
ceeded by Russell Carter. He is still one 
of Placer County's foremost oldtimers. 

Carter, now a correction officer at 
Folsom prison, was a member of the po- 
lice department at Chico, Butte County, 
before taking office in Roseville. 

Not long after his appointmejit the 
city adopted a new charter under which 
the office of police chief was made elec- 
tive. Carter ran in the succeeding elec- 
tion and became the city's first chief to 
win office at the polls. 

The next chief was E. E. ^ ork, a 
Southern Pacific conductor, who defeat- 
ed Carter. In the 1944 election Allen 
returned to office but was defeated four 
\ears later b\' the late Patrolman Robert 
Barnett, who died in office a short time 
later. 

McCrary was chosen by the city coun- 
cil to fill the unexpired term of the late 
William Elam, who had resigned to be- 
come county sheriff. Elam was killed in 
an automobile accident near Lake Tahoe 
two years ago. 



OFFICER OF THE MONTH 

(Continued from piii/r IS) 

Mattern and Chapman were system- 
atically looking behind every garage 
door, every shrub, every garbage can 
when Chapman spotted the gunman 
crouching between two garages, and the 
shooting began that will be remembered 
in the neighborhood for many Memorial 
days to come. 

And Chapman isn't likely to forget 
that he owes his life to Mattern and his 
wounds to a man whom society forgave 
three times for past misdeeds. 

It wasn't for hours after the gun duel 
that Mattern learned how close he had 
come himself to landing in a hospital 
bed. The bullet that tore his shirt al- 
most certainly would have hit if his arm 
had been in only a very slightly differ- 
ent position.

OAKLAND PAY RAISE 

(Continued from paijf 15) 

Latest to make lieutenant is Joe Ve- 
retto, leaving hispectors Sid Brown, Joe 
Lawrence and Art McQuillan next in 
line for the single gold bar. 

There are eight others on the list 
where there were nine. Rod Petersen 
left recently to take a publicity job with 
a local taxpayers' organization. 

Sgts. Mathew Roehl, Ed L. Jones and 
Leigh Harper are the top three men 
eligible for inspector's rank, while Pa- 
trolmen John Area and Robert E. Ford 
are the next top two in line for the three 
stripes. 

There have been no recent shifts in 
the top jobs of the force. 

Still on top is Chief Lester J. Divine, 
who is eligible for retirement this July. 
However, the Chief has given no indi- 
cation as to when he plans to step out. 

Of the captains, Ora Rhodes is still 
heading Central Division, Herbert Kline 
Eastern, Dave Minney Northern, Tony 
Bolger the Inspectors Division and Bill 
Brock the Service Division. Brierly, 
Rogers and Vernon have been mentioned. 

Assisting the Chief in Administration 
is Lieutenant J. J. Guidici. In the In- 
spectors Division, the following lieuten- 
ants are located: Art Waters heads 
Checks, Auto, and Grand Theft; Chuck 
Woods has Bunco, Pawn Shop and 
Booster; Walter Hawkinson has Bur- 
glary and Hubie .Murray has Homicide. 

Assisting Captain Rhodes in Central 
are Lieutenants Dan Murphy, Leo 
Haynes and Frank Gibbs. 

In Eastern, Lieutenants Alden Sage- 
horn and Herman Bernstein are helping 
Captain Kline while in Northern Lieu- 
tenants Joe Veretto and Harold Rich- 
ardson are assisting Captain Minney. 

Lieutenants George Self and Len 
Simpson are Captain Brierley's right- 
hand men in Juvenile, while Lieutenants 
Howard Sorrells and Bill McMurray 
are in Traffic. Helping Captain Brock 
run the Service Division are Lieutenants 
J. J. Murphy, Tyler Armstrong and 
Jack Sturm. 

Currently on leave at Northwestern 
University's famous traffic schol is Lieu- 
tenant Ed Toothman. 

And that is about the size of things in 
the Oakland Police Department at this 
time.

Traffic Leaders 

Four California cities were among the 
nation's leaders in the effort to reduce 
traffic deaths to a minimum during 1952. 

Accordiiij; to figures released by the 
National Safety Council, San Francisco 
had the leading safety record on the basis 
of number of traffic deaths per 10,000 
registered vehicles for cities in the 750.- 
000 to 1,000,000 population bracket. 

V^entura wound up in a three-way tie 
for the leadership in the 10,000 to 25,000 
bracket with the amazing rate of 0.0 
deaths for 10,000. 

Oakland placed second to St. Paul, 
.Minn., in the rate of reduction of fatali- 
ties and Los Angeles placed third in the 
percentage of fatalities for cities over 
1 ,000,000. 

Of the 457 reporting cities during 
1952, decreases were reported by 207, no 
change by 89, and increases by 161. 
Among cities with more than 200,000 
population, St. Paul, Minn., had the 
largest reduction in fatalities — 55 per 
cent below 1951. Oakland, Calif., was 
next with a 42 per cent drop, and 
Rochester, N. Y., followed with a 40 per 
cent decrease. The following cities in this 
size classification showed reductions from 
1951: 

St. Paul, Minn 17 —55 

Oakland, Calif 29 —42 

Rochester, N. Y 8 —40 

Fort Worth, Tex 17 —38 

Norfolk, Va 8 —35 

Providence, R. 1 3 —33 

Richmond, Va 13 — 33 

Buffalo, N. Y 20 —33 

Kansas City, Mo 13 — 30 

Honolulu, T. H 5 —25 

San Francisco, Calif 19 — 23 

Cincinnati. Ohio 15 — 21 

Dallas, Tex 7 —14 

Detroit, Mich 30 —13 

Washington, D. C 7 —11 

Oklahoma City, Okla 2 —8 

Indianapolis, Ind 5 - — 8 

New Orleans, La 4 — 7 

Milwaukee, Was 3 — 6 

Philadelphia, Pa 9 —6 

Omaha, Nebr 1 — )■ 

Houston, Tex 2 — 3 

Denver, Colo 1 — 2 

Sixty-three cities of 10,000 population 
or more completed the year without a 
traffic death. Evanston. 111., with a pop- 
ulation of 73,600, was the largest city to 
achieve this record. Rome, N. Y., was 
second and Appleton, Wis., was third. 

Leading cities in the nine population 
groups for 1952, on the basis of the num- 
ber of traffic deaths per 10.000 regis- 
tered vehicles, follow:

HIGHWAY HOTSPUR 

There is a certain amount of calculated 
risk in driving, for no motor vehicle 
operator can foretell when a dangerous 
traffic pattern may suddenly develop on 
the roadway ahead, says the California 
State Automobile Association. However, 
when a highway hotspur speeding reck- 
lessly along is confronted with such a 
pattern, he adds new dangers to the sit- 
uation and increases the chances of an 
accident and tragedy. Drive only as fast 
as conditions warrant. 



RBGHT MINDED DRIVER 

Whether you're driving on a two-lane 
road or a six-lane freeway, the California 
State Automobile Association urges you 
to drive in the right-hand lane. It's safer 
and if others are driving faster than you, 
the law requires you to keep to the 
right even if you're driving at limit 
speed. Be a "right-minded" driver.

DANGER INCREASES 

Today's faster highway speeds make 
ilriving a car in poor mechanical condi- 
tion more dangerous than e\er, the Cali- 
fornia Highway Patrol announced. 

When average driving speeds were 
lower, a motorist generally had a chance 
to pull off the road if something went 
wrong. 

If a tire blows or the steering gear 
snaps at today's higher speeds, there's 
usualh' not even time for the car's occu- 
pants to brace themselves for the crash, 
the Patrol said. 

The Patrol noted that almost 3 out 
of 4 citations written for mechanical 
defects are for bad brakes and lights. 

Many motorists consider their car's 
defects minor, said the Patrol, although 
each one can — and often does — lead to 
an accident. 

For increased safety, the Patrol sug- 
gested car owners regularly inspect and 
maintain brakes, lights, tires, steering and 
wheel alignment, exhaust system and 
muffler, windshield wipers, window 
glass, horn and rear-view mirror. 

The Patrol said it agreed with the 
safety slogan being used nationally dur- 
ing May. That is, that "good drivers 
drive safe cars."

Why Night Driving Is Harder 

Four reasons why driving at night is 
more difficult than driving in daylight 
hours are listed by the California State 
Automobile Association as follows: 

1. Overdriving the headlights. Many 
motorists drive at such a rate they can- 
not stop within the limit of vision. 

2. Fatigue after a day's work or a 
day's driving slows the driver's reaction 
time so he travels a longer distance be- 
fore he moves his foot and applies the 
brakes. 

3. Glare from the lights of oncoming 
cars, especially from those of motorists 
who fail to dim their lights. 

4. Lessened visibility on the road 
ahead. Even the best automobile head- 
lights do not light up the side of the 
road enough to reveal crossroads or dis- 
tant pedestrians. 

"All these not only put more strain on 
the driver who travels at night but are 
excellent reasons why speed should be 
geared to conditions prevailing at the 
time," says the CSAA. 



REAR-END COLLISIONS 

The "pain in the neck" resulting 
from a rear-end collision isn't always 
limited to the cost and inconvenience of 
having a smashed radiator or crumpled 
tnmk lid repaired, according to the Cali- 
fornia Highway Patrol. 

The Patrol referred to a recent med- 
ical report telling of severe neck and 
nervous system injuries growing out of 
even minor rear-end accidents and added 
a few tips on how to avoid such mis- 
haps. 

Patrol Commissioner B. R. Caldwell 
said that while high speed is a factor in 
many rear-end collisions, scores occur at 
comparatively slow speeds because driv- 
ers persist in following each other too 
closely. 

To prevent these neck jarring rear- 
end sniashups at any speed, Caldwell 
suggested that motorists stay behind 
other vehicles at least the minimum safe 
distance — 1 car length for every 10 
miles of speed. 

What about the driver who sticks to 
another car's rear bumper like glue and 
can't or won't pass? 

Caldwell told motorists who find 
themselves being followed too closely 
that their best move is to pull over, 
where safe to do so, and let their im- 
patient fellow driver go by. 

AVhen a rear-end collision seems un- 
avoidable, the medical report suggested 
that covering and supporting the head 
with the arms would afTord some pro- 
tection.

PAROLE PROBLEM 

(ContirtUfJ from payt' S ) 
Probation is a postponement of sen- 
tence, or a prc-prison effort at rehabilita- 
tion, used liberally in handling juvenile 
offenders. They usually are confined in 
institutions onI\- after all other corrective 
measures ha\e failed. Ninety per cent of 
the population in Connecticut's reform- 
atory at Cheshire for inmates between 
the ages of si.xteen and twenty-five have 
previous records before they are sent 
there for the first time. It is fairly fre- 
quent to receive a boy who has been 
placed on probation five times and, of 
course, has been favored by a sympathetic 
judge each time. 

Parole, or post-prhon rehabilitation, is 
so widespread that it is virtually stand- 
ard operating procedure in modern pen- 
ology. Here, too, the good intentions of 
society are abused, consistently and fla- 
grantly. Approximately 25 per cent of 
all state parolees violate the conditions of 
their releases from prison during the 
relatively brief periods they are serving 
their unfinished sentences "on the out- 
side. " Eventually, another 25 per cent 
are rearrested for illegal activities after 
their paroles have expired. In other 
words, fully half the convicts granted 
paroles are listed as repeaters on police 
records. 

Yet I contend that the principle of 
parole is sound and should be extended 
even farther than it is today, provided 
certain safeguards which I will outline 
presently are set up. I say this despite 
the fact that one of our state troopers 
was killed by a parole violator only last 
February thirteenth. I he trooper stopped 
a speeding car on the Merritt Parkway 
to warn the driver and, as he approached 
the car, was shot down by a young pa- 
rolee who had left Massachusetts with- 
out permission of the proper authorities. 
I still believe in parole although I have 
grieved with too many widows and chil- 
dren of fine law-enforcement ofScers who 
\\;\\e been killed by criminals released 
prematurely from prison. 

Right now, just across the border in 
Massachusetts, a criminal who has mur- 
dered two policemen in cold blood is 
enjoying legal liberty. This man was one 
of the notorious Ice-Box Bandits who 
terrorized New England in the 1920's 
by locking hold-up victims in refrigera- 
tors. They were fleeing from a hold-up 
when they were chased by a Connecticut 
state trooper on a motorcycle. They shot 
and killed the trooper. Seized later in 
Massachusetts, they were extradited to 
Connecticut and charged with murder. 
The man and his brother were sentenced 
to life imprisonment.

Three years later, he and two inmates 
guilty of major crimes escaped from 
prison and fled to Jacicsonville, Florida. 
'Fwo local detectives spotted the fugi- 
tives in a stolen car on a main street and 
attempted to apprehend them. The des- 
perados opened fire, killing one detec- 
tive and wounding the other so badly 
that he was permanently crippled. 'Fhe 
lifer escaped again but was captured in 
Pensacola on a ship bound for Me.xico. 
He was sentenced to life imprisonment 
in Florida, but the authorities there re- 
turned him to Connecticut because of his 
prior conviction in our jurisdiction. 

Twenty years later the man who had 
murdered two policemen with dependent 
children was paroled by Connecticut and 
permitted to go to Massachusetts a free 
man. I am not criticizing the action of 
the parole board. I merely am wonder- 
ing what society must do to protect itself 
against individuals of this type. And I 
am wondering, too, whether we have 
seen the last of a confirmed cop-killer. 

Are too many criminals paroled ? I 
don't believe so. Although 1 emphasize 
the high incidence of repeaters who are 
costing us an excessive price in loss of 
life and property, my chief purpose is to 
point up the vital need for parole regu- 
lations that really work. It is essential 
to remember that half the convicts 
granted parole betray the confidence of 
well-meaning people, but that's a nega- 
tive approach to the question. Think of 
the other half who go straight after they 
are released. If they were confined with 
hardened jail-birds for an appreciable 
period, the chances are that a great many 
young prisoners would learn the tricks 
of the criminal trade from experts. 

Penal institutions are so overcrowded, 
and funds for modern facilities are so 
limited, that it is impossible to segregate 
casual offenders from habitual criminals. 
As a consequence, there is serious dan- 
ger that prisons may become vocational 
schools for crime when young inmates are 
kept in that environment too long. No- 
body knows how many potentially useful 
citizens have been recruited into the 
ranks of organized crime and taught the 
techniques of the dirty business by old, 
experienced Fagins. 

Current weaknesses in our parole sys- 
tem do not stem from the laws which 
empower board members to release men 
from prison. The unsatisfactory results 
of the practice can be traced directly to 
the administration of the law, the failure 
to follow through with stricter ob- 
servance of the conditions under which 
parolees are freed. 

By definition and legal interpretation, 
parole means the serving of the unexpired

part of a sentence outside prison under 
supervision. Those two words, under su- 
pervision, cannot be stressed too strongly. 
In theory, a convict given a conditional 
release is supposed to be bound h\ cer- 
tain restrictions after he returns to civil- 
ian life. He is not scot free until the full 
term of his parole is finished. Parole 
officers are required to make periodic 
checks on the parolee's conduct and acti- 
\'iries, and they can take a man into cus- 
tody if he violates specific conditions. 
I hat is the theory — but there is a wide 
and dangerous gap between theorv and 
practical application. I don't know of 
a single state that appropriates enough 
money for the manpower to supervise 
adequately the criminals it paroles. This 
sort of economy is the source of a con- 
siderable percentage of parole violations. 

Let's trace briefl\' the machinery of 
parole or, rather, how it should operate. 
There are minor differences among vari- 
ous states, but Connecticut's parole law- 
is a fairly typical example. Anyone given 
a maximum sentence of one year or more 
can apply for a parole once a year. 
Lifers are eligible after they have served 
twent\-five years, minus time off for 
good behavior. Since a convict can earn 
two months a year in prison, and four 
months a year if he is transferred to a 
state prison farm, a lifer can ask for — 
and get — a parole after he has served 
twenty years. The Federal law is even 
more liberal. Prisoners sentenced to 
more than 180 days are eligible after 
serving two months or one-third of their 
terms. Everyone given a sentence of 
more than forty-five years is eligible after 
fifteen years. 

The pressures of economy, it is im- 
portant to note, are bringing about a ten- 
dency toward shorter periods of confine- 
ment, another factor that underscores the 
need for tightening up on the surveil- 
lance of parolees. At our AVethersfield 
State Prison, where the normal popu- 
lation ranges between 750 and 800 in- 
mates, we annually parole 180 convicts 
on the average and take in 150 despite 
the steady rise in the crime rate. 

In Connecticut, parole applications 
from five institutions are reviewed once 
a month by separate boards. Each board 
consists of the institution's warden and 
seven citizens who are appointed by the 
governor. These members ser\e without 
pay and cannot be commended too highly 
for the invaluable public dut\- they per- 
form. Ministers, educators, civic leaders, 
business men and presidents of insurance 
companies whose home offices are in 
Hartford make generous contributions 
of their time and effort to cope with a 
pressing social problem.

A unique feature of my state's parole 
system is the Connecticut Prison Asso- 
ciation which gets jobs for parolees and 
discharged convicts. It works in close 
cooperation with authorities in surround- 
ing states to assist in the rehabilitation 
of their parolees who come under Con- 
necticut's jurisdiction. The Association, 
usually presided over by the Chief Jus- 
tice of the State, has a paid director and 
four assistants who try to give every pos- 
sible break to a man with the blot of a 
prison term on his record. 

Parole conditions are fairly standard 
throughout the country. A released con- 
vict is forbidden to use liquor or fre- 
quent places where it is sold, associate 
with known criminals, ride in private 
automobiles or change his job and resi- 
dence without the approval of his parole 
officer until the unfinished term of his 
sentence is completed. In addition, he 
is required to file a written report every 
month stating what he has done, where 
he has worked and how much he has 
earned. A man usually is paroled within 
the limits of the state in which he was 
convicted, but he will be permitted to 
join his family in another state if circum- 
stances suggest a quicker rehabilitation. 
In any event, he is prohibited from leav- 
ing a state without the approval of his 
parole officer. 

If any of these rules is violated during 
the parole period, a man can be returned 
to prison at the forfeit of any or all time 
he previously earned for good behavior. 
T suppose there are vindictive parole of- 
ficers, but I never heard of one throwing 
the book at a man the first time he caught 
him with a glass of beer in a bar. That 
technical infraction will bring a stiff 
warning — and a grim reminder that the 
only bars in prison are on the windows. 

Those are the restrictions imposed on 
paroled criminals to protect law-abiding 
neighbors and employers in the communi- 
ties which receive them in good faith. 
By the same token, the state has an obli- 
gation to safeguard society from further 
depredations of its former enemies. That 
means constant supervision of parolees 
to insure observance of parole laws. It 
is at this precise point that the entire 
system breaks down. State and Federal 
budgets provide for so few parole officers 
that the whole thing is a grisly joke. 

A parole officer presumably should 
visit his charges without notice several 
times a month. He should bump into a 
narolee on the street, in his home and at 
his job to keep close tabs on the man. 
He should talk to neighbors and bosses 
to get a general impression of the pa- 
rolee's conduct, habits and the progress 
he is making in readjusting to the com- 
munity. Getting even a sketchy picture

of one parolee's daily routine in\ol\cs a 
lor of time and hard, painstaking work. 

A host of experts, beginning with 
J. Edgar Hoover, have testified that a 
parole officer cannot do a competent job 
if he has more than 75 cases a month to 
handle. The bald, blunt fact is that 
parole officers in most states have a stag- 
gering load of 100 to 200 cases, and there 
are instances where one officer is respon- 
sible for 600 parolees. 

^ ou don't have to know anything 
about police work to guess what happens 
under such conditions. Released crimi- 
nals consistently violate their paroles be- 
cause they know it is impossible for their 
supervisors to make anything but once- 
o\er-lightIy checkups on them. Some- 
times parole officers have so much terri- 
tory and work to cover that they cannot 
even go through the motions of doing 
that. They simply ask parolees to report 
b\ letter once a month. A crook can 
Iea\e a half-dozen prepared letters with 
a pal, then take off and stick up banks 
all over the country and his parole officer 
never will be the wiser. 

It is common practice among harassed 
parole officers to meet a group of six to 
ten charges at his office every month for 
fifteen-minute interviews. Such sessions 
are worse than nothing at all for the>' 
introduce ex-convicts to one another and, 
in effect, can be recruiting meetings for 
criminal gangs. Besides, what can be 
learned by asking a parolee a few, per- 
functory questions ? He can report he is 
going to church every day, and twice on 
Sunda\s, and be counterfeiting hundred- 
dollar bills in an opium den for all any- 
one knows. 

It is small wonder that parole officers 
now are as ineffective in curbing crime 
as watchmen were in the Middle Ages. 
Those so-called guardians of life and 
property carried a bell or a rattle which 
they shook incessantly to warn evil-doers 
of their approach. A parole officer who 
is so busy that he has to make an ap- 
pointment with an ex-convict is stripped 
of the element of surprise which is the 
chief deterrent against crime. The pa- 
rolee who doesn't know when a super- 
visor will drop in on him imexpectedh 
is far more likely to beha\e himself all 
the time than he will if the law is forced 
to call its shots in advance. 

A lot of fancy scientific gimmicks have 
been de\eloped in recent years that are 
a great help in crime prevention and de- 
tection, but the basis of police work still 
is old-fashioned pavement pounding. A 
parole officer must get out in the field 
and see for himself what is going on. If 
he is chained to a desk by a topheavy

work load, he is nothing more than a file 
cleric. 1 he crux of the parole problem 
is thorough and adequate supervision. 
I he lack of it breeds more cunning 
criminals. 

Clinching proof that parole can achieve 
the purpose behind it is provided by Dr. 
Charles H. Z. Meyer, associate editor of 
the Journal of Criminal Law, Criminol- 
ogy and Police Science. In an article 
published in the April, 1952, issue of 
the Journal, Dr. Meyer showed that only 
14.3 per cent of Federal prisoners vio- 
late their paroles compared to the mini- 
mum 25 per cent by state prisoners. The 
reason ? A Federal parole officer has 
an average work load of 95 cases. His 
counterpart in a state is saddled with 
twice as many cases and accomplishes 
one-half as much in the way of construc- 
tive rehabilitation. It's the same old 
story. The public gets what it pays for. 

There is another serious flaw in the 
parole system of Connecticut and several 
other states which I have been trying to 
correct with no success. This one does 
not stem from economy motives. It is 
strictly the product of a soft-headed, 
emotional attitude toward criminals that 
is a menace to law-abiding people. It 
may be hard to believe this, but only two 
officials in the state know when a con- 
vict is released on parole. One is the 
state attornev who prosecuted the case ; 
the other is his parole officer. No other 
state or law-enforcement officer is told 
when a potentially dangerous man is 
turned loose. In the case of out-of-state 
prisoners, only a parole officer and the 
Connecticut Prison Association are in- 
formed. 

I have listened to interminable argu- 
ments by proponents of the non-notifica- 
tion system and I still am convinced the 
whole thing is a bad mistake. The idea 
of keeping parolees anonymous is de- 
fended on the grounds that the police 
will hound ex-convicts whenever they 
have no suspects for crimes. Interrogat- 
ing a man and subjecting him to a police 
lineup of suspicious characters just be- 
cause he once broke a law is, it is claimed, 
an infringement of his liberty and pri- 
vacy. I readily concede there mav be 
occasional abuses of constitutional rights. 
They should be exposed vigorously and 
the police guiltv of indiscriminate strong- 
arm methods should be disciplined. 

On the other hand, let's remember 
that it is better than an even-money bet 
that a previous offender has committed 
any given crime. If preliminary investi- 
gation does not turn up a suspect, the 
police should have ready sources of in- 
formation on ex-convicts who have been 
known to commit such crimes. As things

Stand now, police lose a good deal of 
\aluablc time in picking up a trail when 
they run into a blind alley. They should 
know, at least, who might have com- 
mitted the crime and question a suspect 
if there are reasonable grounds for such 
action. Further, local police can give a 
parole officer imnieasureable assistance in 
checking up on ex-convicts. A cop knows 
more about the people on his beat than 
a nosey gossip. 

Consider this ridiculous situation : I 
am one of the top law-enforcement of- 
ficers of a small, compact state, yet I 
don't know what the 500 former convicts 
walking our streets are doing or where 
they are unless I bump into one accident- 
ally. There is one bloke whose where- 
abouts I'd like to know at all times. 
Wars ago, this thug critically wounded 
a detective who attempted to arrest him 
for a major crime. After dropping the 
detective, the criminal stood over him 
and deliberately fired another shot at the 
helpless man. He later was arrested and 
sentenced to twelve to twenty years in 
the penitentiary for assault with intent to 
murder. 

After serving the minimum sentence, 
he was paroled. Two months later he 
persuaded a naive kid with no previous 
police record to help him hold up a night 
club owner. A constable balked the at- 
tempt and nabbed the kid, but the jail- 
bird escaped and subsequently woimdeil 
another detective in New York before 
he was taken into custody. Returned 
to Connecticut, he was given another 
twenty-year stretch which, with his pre- 
vious conviction, should have kept him 
under lock and key for life. 

You've probably guessed the sequel to 
the story. Four years ago the guy who 
takes pot shots at policemen for a hobby 
was paroled. If another one of our men 
is wounded or killed in line of dut\. 
this confirmed cop-hater would be the 
first suspect I'd want to question, but I 
don't know whether he is in Australia 
or in a saloon around the corner. 

How can we curb crime ? There are 
so many complicated causes that there is 
no quick, easy answer. For many years 
it was widely held that feeblemindedness 
was a major factor. I wish it were true. 
Dim-wits are easy to apprehend. Enough 
studies to stock a library have shown, 
however, that this is utterly untrue. The 
average intelligence of criminals differs 
little from the I.Q. of the general popu- 
lation. 

A current popular theory holds that 
movies, radio, television and reading 
matter featuring violence are to blame 
for the soaring crime rate. Psychologists

are satisfied that the iiuliviiiiial who is 
prompted to break the law because of 
something he has seen, heard or read 
merely is completing the final link in a 
chain of circumstances with many other 
origins. The same movie, radio show or 
story has little effect on a normal per- 
son. It may even have a beneficial effect. 

Sociologists long believed that povert\' 
was a basic cause of crime. August Voll- 
mer, in his authoritative book, "The 
Criminal," makes an interesting com- 
parison between the economic index and 
the crime rate. Vollmer shows that after 
the recession in 1921-22 the economic in- 
de.x began to rise, but it was paralleled 
by an upward trend in the crime curve. 
Prosperity reached a peak in 1929 — and 
a year later, when the pinch of the de- 
pression really was felt, the incidence of 
crime began to fall off until it reached 
a low in 1935. We have known unprece- 
dented prosperity, in terms of money, for 
more than a decade now, yet the crime 
rate is threatening to go through the 
roof. Criminals spring from families on 
all levels of the economic scale. Heirs to 
fortunes go wrong as often, proportion- 
ately, as kids whose folks are on relief. 
Greed, not actual need, is the motivating 
factor. 

It all boils down to this: Each crime 
is the result of a unique series of circum- 
stances. But society cannot wait for psy- 
chologists, sociologists, economists and 
other e.xperts to untangle the maze of 
crime causes. In the meantime, police 
must rely on one hard, established fact of 
crime prevention and detection: Crim- 
inals tend to follow patterns in the of- 
fenses they commit. A swindler rarely 
resorts to violence ; a trigger-happy thug 
seldom is an embezzler. 

It is most imperative, therefore, that 
the police in every locality have a cata- 
logue of former prisoners who have been 
known to commit crimes in any given 
category as soon as a case is reported. 
Such a list will promote much quicker 
and cheaper solutions of crimes, yet false 
sympathy for parolees is withholding 
that vital information from law-enforce- 
ment agencies. I can assure you that ex- 
convicts do not entertain such tender 
sentiments for society. 

I am thinking now of another set of 
brothers who pulled Connecticut's first 
bank robbery in a long time at Wood- 
bury in June, 1950. They took $1 1,000 
at the point of guns and made a clean 
getway, but a half-hour later they were 
spotted by a state trooper who stopped 
them at a bridge. The robbers fled into
