Police Will Work
Twelve-Hour Shift
Chief Enkemann Expresses Deep
Regret Over Loss of Resigning Men
The shroud of confusion surrounding Ann Arbor's police crisis
cleared yesterday, leaving the City's already undermanned force with
an additional 11-man deficit.
The result, said Police Chief Casper M. Enkemann, "probably
means a shift to a 12-hour day for remaining men, until we can
recruit new officers. This may take months or more.- You never
can tell," he added.
Six resignations will go into effect Nov. 18, four the 20th and
one the 28th of this month.
Resignations Reached 38
Chief Enkemann, after a week of tense negotiations which saw
the number of resignations climb to 38 of 45 patrolmen and detec-

Six Airlines
To Discuss
Willow Run
Representatives of six major air-
lines now operating at Willow Run
will meet with Wayne County offi-
cials next Thursday to consider
the County's proposal to move
operation to Detroit-Wayne Major
This meeting follows the federal
government Air Use Panel's re-
commendation that civilian air
operations be moved from Willow
Run, switching that field to mili-
tary use.
Willow Run, owned and leased
by the University, is currently op-
erated by the Airlines National
Terminal Service Company, Inc.
The airlines will participate in
this meeting as a result of a sug-
gestion made by them last May.
There is 'no definite indication
that a transfer wll be undertaken
prior to the expiration of the pres-
ent lease in approximately seven
American Airlines, now consid-
ering a lone move, will not take
part in the conference.
In addition to studying the
Panel's recommendation, plans for
developing the potential commer-
cial use of Wayne Major will be
discussed at the meeting.
House Passes
Mental Aid Bill
In Emergency
LANSING (P)-The House passed
and sent to the Senate last night.
a bill providing 1,650 beds for the
emergency care of mentally re-
tarded children.
The program would cost $4,-
812,508. It includes purchase of
the Farmington Children's Hospi-
tal and the Oakland County Tub-
erculosis Sanitorium. It also pro-
vides for leasing the idle Fort Cus-!
ter Station Hospital at Battle
In addition, the bill would add
100 children to the family care1
program and 100 to the contrac-
tual program under which child-
ren are cared for in private and
county hospitals at state expense.
Republican leaders promptly
predicted the Senate would reject'
the program when it meets Mon-'
day, just asit had rejected it be-
They said there is almost no
ikelihood that the Senate would
agree to'the purchase of either the
Farmington or Oakland Countyr
Hospital. It was this proposal1
which sent the two chambers into
one of the most' stubborn battles
in the history of the Legislature.
The House plan passed by a
60-33 vote with nine Republicans
joining a solid Democratic vote in
support of the measure.k

tives, issued a cautious note of
optimism on the future problems
of policing.
"We'll have plenty of men," he
said, "but they'll be working hard.
I feel confident, however, that the
City will compensate for the extra
hours spent." Policemen normally
receive no pay for overtime.
He expressed confidence that no
aid from State Police would be
necessary. "These men will do a
good job of patrolling," he said.
However, extra state police aid
may be required for Ohio State
football traffic.
'Critical Loss'
"It is a critical loss," Enkemann
continued. "These were fine po-
licemen, and you can't replace
them overnight."
A total of 65 years of previous
service goes out with the resign-
ing men. Many had served for
more than six years.
The resignations were submitted
because of inability to meet finan-
cial needs on present salaries, or
with raises granted by the City
The raise was considerably be-
low the suggestions of the police
commission, and policemen found
it insufficient to "make ends
meet" in Ann Arbor where living
costs have rocketed to the highest
in the nation.
Job Offers Come In
Several policement already have
job offers, although some have re-
signed without "the vaguest no-
tion" of what the next step will
be. Offers have been received
which exceed police pay by a sub-
stantial amount, and the offers
have just begun coming in, ac-
cording to some of the resigning
In addition, the offers include
a five-day work week, with an op-
portunity to earn time-and-a-half
for overtime work including Sat-
urday, a normal work day for
Enkemann was optimistic also in
discussing future police depart-
ment wages. He expressed "great
faith in the Council. I think they
are sincere in their effort to find
new revenue sources."
Yesterday's actions taken by the
police commission after the chief
had spent more than ten hours of
the previous two days conferring
with 18 officers, climax a week of
tension and confusion.
Enkemann, the man whose
tedious hours in conference and
tireless thrashing out of his men's
problems has kept the number of
resignations to 12, was obviously
relieved last night. It was evi-
dent in his concluding comment,
"I think we came out pretty well."

Case Letter
Called Hoax
New Evidence Reveals
Document Worthless
COLUMBUS. o. ()-A Colum-
bus attorney last night said he
now believes a letter purporting to
name the "actual killer" of Marilyn
Sheppard is a "farce".
Webster S. Lyman Jr., said that
when he first heard of the letter
about a month and a half ago, he
thought it sounded "real," but in
the light of developments today,
he no longer believes so.
The New York Daily News yes-
terday published a copyrighted
story saying the contents of the
letter had been disclosed to writer
Theo Wilson, and that it said the
killer had "heavy bushy hair."
Dr. Samuel Sheppard, 31, who
is now serving a life sentence in
O h i o Penitentiary, steadfastly
claimed throughout his trial that
the "real" killer was an unknown
intruder with "bushy hair." Shep-
pard was convicted last December
of the murder which took place
July 4, 1954 in Bay Village, a
suburb of Cleveland.
Lyman said last night that he
now believes the man who in-
formed him of the letter's con-
tents, sold it to the newspaper.
He said the man had asked him
to give it to the Sheppard family
in exchange for a personal favor
from the Sheppards. Lyman said
the favor was not money.
He said he now feels that after
receiving the favor, the man
turned around and sold the story.
The attorney said disclosure of the
letter would hamper an investi-
In Cleveland, Mrs. Richard J
Sheppard, a sister-in-law of Dr.
Sam was informed by The Assoc-
iated Press of Lyman's statement.
"It's a disappointment, but we've
become used to disappointments.
I'm still sure Dr. Sam will be
cleared some day."
Lyman said the man was not an l
Ohioan, but had contacted him in
Columbus, after being sent to Ly- a
man by a client of the attorney.a
Lyman fully substantiated thes
News story as being the same as
that he-received from the inform- it

It's another "big one" in the Michigan $tVdium today.
Michigan's football gridders, with their backs against the pro-
verbial wall, will meet another upset-minded and under-rated squad,
Indiana, this afternoon.

expected to witness the Wolverines attempt to get back on the victory
The Maize-and-Blue will meet a team which is far better than a

Lack of Interest Squelches Rally


A "spontaneous" Rose Bowl
Rally was squelched yesterday by
ack of both interest and ralliers.
Most of the 50 people milling
round the front of the Union
eemed more interested in whether
r not the rally was going to hap-
en than in participating in it if
t did.
One student said, "The people
waiting for their buses seem more
xcited than the ralliers." It was

pirit-roursers were and who (he

He got the attention, if not the

elled, "I know these players;
hey need the student body. All we
ave to do is walk down to the
eld, pat them on the back and
ay 'Come on, Michigan, we're for

The small crowd was apparently

more entertained than activated
by his shouts. When he jumped
from the roof of the bus and start-
ed marching to the field only five
people followed him.
The rest of the group was re-
strained, if they needed restrain-

It looked as if a riot would re-

the man with the horn sarcastical-

"I'm a cheerleader," the blue-

Mistakes Haunt Hoosiers
Last Saturday, Indiana outgain-
ed the Buckeyes, 301 yards to 251,
and ran 65 plays to Ohio's 54. In
the two middle periods the Bucks
ran only a meager 17 plays from
scrimmnage. But mistakes haunted
the Hoosiers. A fumbled' punt
and a defensive error set up two
touchdowns for Ohio State.
"We can't afford to make mis-
takes against Michigan," Coach .
Bernie Crimmins declared. "They'll
turn them into touchdowns. But
if we can avoid the errors which
hurt us so badly in the past we'll
make a real game of it."
Crimmins' words can be taken
as truth. Michigan fans have to
look only to last year as proof,
when Indiana upset a favored
Wolverine team, 13-9.
Florian Helinski, who led the
upset win has graduated, but the
visitors have come up with a more,
than able replacement. Quarter-
back Chick Cichowski played his
finest game against the Buckeyes.
He netted 59 yards rushing, com-
pleted 11 of 18rpasses and aver-°
aged 40 yards on four punts. He
leads the Big Ten in passing -a

31 of 51 attempts for a total gain'
of 403 yards with only two inter-;
