French admitted loss of the channel port of Calais (1) and the Germans claimed capture of Boulogne, a
scant five minutes by air from Britain. Belgian troop s at Courtrai (2) counter-attacked to force the enemy
to halt its offensive temporarily. On the Somme Rive r (3) French troops dented enemy lines. Jn the 20-
mile-wide bottleneck in the Bapaume and Perrone sectors (4) the Allies held firm. The French also reported
a "strong enemy attack was repulsed" in the Montme dy region (5) at the northwest end of the Maginot Line.

By EUGENE MANDELBERG
The new orange and white tower'
behind the Fire Department should
prove a boon to the police and sheriff's
departments and likewise make life
miserable for all law breakers.
For that 196 foot tower is the new
two way communication system set
up by the city to coordinate the city
and county law enforcement depart-
ments. Until the erection of the
tower, police used a two way com-
munication system, but only among
themselves. The little tower over the
City Hall annex was able to serve
he police in the city, but it was not
powerful enough to send out messages
through the county. Also, the sher-
iff's prowl cars were not in touch
with their headquarters; they received
all information through the state
police radio.
With the new tower, however, the
police and sheriff's cars will have
two way communication with the
police department and the police
will have the added advantage
of being able to send calls through-
out Washtenaw County. Not only
will this new system pull the police
and sheriff's departments closer to-
gether, but it will enable them to
act much more quickly in the capture
of escaping criminals.
Formerly, a report to the police
station of a robbery took an average
of one minute and forty-five seconds
to come in-after the robbery had

lay the report to their prowl cars
who would attempt to block the roads.
Sheriff's cars would not receive word
of the crime until the sheriff had
'phoned the state police and they
had sent the message back to the
sheriff's cars in the city.
