Policewomen combat crime

(Continued from Page 1)
areas. Things never get monoto-
nous down there - we get lots
of family fights and B and E's
(breaking and entering)".
Although Gilbreath and Ste-
wart are rapidly destroying
many of the erroneous notions
attributed to the "weaker sex,"
they do not view themselves as
the Florence Nightengales or
Amelia Earharts of their pro-
fession - nor do they claim to
be crusaders in the women's
liberation movement.

"I'm not as much a liberated
woman as most people would
believe," says Gilbreath. "I be-
lieve that women should be giv-
en as much opportunity for pro-
motion in police work, but I
wouldn't accept a command
position right now. Just three
year'snago, this was completely
a man's world."
STEWART, who vehemently
disagrees with a recent court
ruling requiring the Detroit po-
lice department to hire one wo-
man for every man, believes
that promotion and hiring poli-
cies should take into account
only the qualifications of the of-
ficer.
Although the policewomen
take "a little kidding" from the

men in the department, they
voice no serious complaints.
"Contrary to what a lot of
people say, we have a great
bunch of guys down here," as-
serts Stewart.
WHAT FEW grievances there
are among the officers appear
to emanate solely from the men.
"My main complaint about
the women is that I have to
ride with them," says Officer
Steve Prussian. "Any time the
situation calls for brute force,
I feel much less comfortable
with a woman."
Although he believes that
there are some situations a fe-
male officer can handle better
than a male, Prussian claims
that "when the situation de-

mands an authority figure, it's
much better to send in a man.
"I'm just not as comfortable
working with the women," he
continues. "I like to go home
alive at night."
BOTH KRASNY and Zeck,
however, proudly tout the com-
petence of the policewomen.
"Our female officers have
proven they can be as effective
as the men," says Krasny. "Al-
though you have to consider the
sort of community they'll be
dealing with, what it all boils
down to is the right kind of
training."
Prussian contends, however,
that one of themain reasons
the policewomen have been a
success is because Ann Arbor
is a community with a relatively
low incidence of violent crime.
Gilbreath and Stewart are
rarely required to use their
guns and they have never fired

them in the line of duty.
"The only time I've ever shot
my gun was to kill an old pos-
sum in my backyard," Gilbreath
says with an amused smile.
PROTEIN ON TAP
MAMARONECK, N.Y. (-) -
Drinking a glass of water
may not be as satisfying as eat-
ing a steak, but it may, some-
day soon, become a lot more
nutritious, according to scien-
tists at the Novo Enzyme Corp.
here.
Scientists working or new
ways to improve the wari's
food supply have discovered
that after treatment by a spe-
cial enzyme, protein from such
vegetables as soybeans, alfalfa
and cotton seed becomes so-
luble in almost any consumabte
liquid. Vegetable protein could
therefore, be added to ,lain tap
water, making it a, even rich-
er source of prot in than milk.
