Police Detective Prophesies
Compulsory Fingerprinting

Paul S. Martin

Dick Thutrston, Poet With An Inspiration

Will Give Talk
HI- Th d "

Compulsory fingerprinting through-~
out the country within five years is
foreseen by Detective Harry Smith
of the Ann Arbor police force.
Smith, who is the fingerprint ex-
pert of the department bases his con-
clusion on the growing- realization
that an infallible method of identi-
fication is important to the ordinary
"At a time when a vigorous cam-
paign is being waged against sub-
versive activities in this co ntry it
is essential that every person-citi-
zen or non-citizen-haye the proper
identification. Birth certificates and
citizenship papers can be forged or
stolen and , thus "fifth columnists"
can assume the guise of genuine
Americans," he said.
Gives Instances
He also gave instances of cases in
normal times ,when figerprints have
helped in the identification of am-
nesia victims, and in the search for
missing persons.
Formerly most people considered
that it was a criminal stigma to be
fingerprinted, Out that feeling is fast
disappearing, he declared. "Civillai
prints must be kept in segregated
files, however," he insisted.
Illustrating the infallibility of this
technique he pointed out that the

Letter Relates
Travel Perils
in War Zone
Through 15 furious air raids; a
helter-skelter, 50-hour retreat on a
Greek ammunition train which was
attacked by enemy planes; seeing war
preparations in Turkey-these are
the amazing experiences related by
SProf. Harley L. Sensemann, former
University faculty member, in a re-
cent letter to his son, Wilfred Sense-
narn of the English department.
Professcr Sensemann was on the
aculty here from 1912-1925 as head
- the Alumni Catalog Office and
instructor of rhetoric and economics.
Since that time he has been connected
with the American University at Cai-
ro, Anatolia College in Thessalonika,
Greece, and is at present on the
teaching staff of Robert College in
Istanbul, Turkey,
His letter tells the thrilling story
of American civilians caught in the
swirling current of a war-torn nation.
Explaining that they were bombed
out of Thessaloniki, Sensemann says,
"4We saw our ground defense guns
make direct hits and enemy planes
burst into flames, and pilots and gun-
ners bail out. We saw one of our
Greek defense pilots, having run out
of ammunition, deliberately ram an
Italian plane, shear off a wing, and
then bring his own plane down safe-
In an attempt to leave the war
(zone, Professor Sensemann and his
wife left Turkey "under cover of
darkness on an armored train, sitting
about ten feet from the anti-aircraft
gun and gunners ready to go into
action. Our train was mostly an am-
munition train. One hit on that and
we'd all be blown to kingdom come."
And then came the dreaded air at-
tack by Italian planes which the
travelers had so hoped they would be
able to avoid. Professor Sensemann
vividly describes the scene.
"Men were running and' shouting
like scared chickens. Women were
screaming and falling down as they
ran, and babies were wailing. The
gunners were making it (the anti-
aircraft gun) point at us each time
it swung around."
At last, with the enemy finally
driven off, the Sensemanns arrived
safely in Turkey. The professor is
not certain, however, that they have
successfully evaded the war merely
by leaving Greece.
"We were told that Turkey would
soon be involved," he writes. "We are
having blackouts here now, and mob-
ilization and defense preparations are
going on rapidly."
