radio operator S. S. Sturgeon de-
Glared in an interview explaining the
operation and importance of the two-
way police radio system used by the
local department.
The radio finances itself from the
standpoint of recovered property
alone, Sturgeon pointed out. "Two
weeks ago six stolen cars were gotten
back through the radio. Those who
stole the cars would never have been
caught if-the police had not been
able to capture them a few minutes
after the call came into headquart-

At the preesnt time the police de-
partment has three two-way equipped
cars and two motor cycles with one
way apparatus. There is a possibility
that the motor cycles will be equipped
two way. Sturgeon asserted that it
was technically practical and that an
appropriation figure for it would be
submitted to the police commission.
Patrol Beats Next
Within the nextyearthe police
will experiment with a one-way re-
ceiving apparatus for officers who
patrol beats on foot, Sturgeon dis-
closed. The apparatus would only
weigh one pound and battery replace-.
ments would be the only financial
consideration, he explained.j

A society of gentlemen songsters

within the past month. Once a week

as "The Ann Arbor Surf Riding and

briefly as the "Psurfs," meet to honor
