PSYCHOL GY ENLISTED
BY CHICAGO'S' POLICE
Classes Held At Chicago University
Offer Studies In Behavior
To Detectives
(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, August 6.-Chicago po-
lice have enlisted *phychology to aid
them in their year-in, year-out war
on crime.
To supplement their night sticks,
pistols, hand-cuffs, show-ups and
knowledge gained by experience the
department has added a course in hu-
man behavior, including studies of
racial psychology and criminal ten-
dencies.
The classes are at the University
of Chicago.
Prof. L. D. White believes that if
a detective knows what strain pro-
duced "Lightfingered Harry" and
"Pineapple Pete," what inhibitions he
has and how, the two acted when
children he has a better chance of
putting the pair where their activities
will be circumscribed.
A. L. Dixon, assistant secretary to
the British home office, the head of
Scotland Yard, left at the Chicago
police school, where he lectured,
what Professor White considers an
axiom: "It is the crimes not commit-
ted rather than the crimes detected
that are the greatest proof of an ef-
fective police.'

Fog that obscures vision'is penetrated by a camera developed for aerial plhotoglrahhy by the United
States army air corps under the supervision of Capt. Albert W. Stevens (inset;. At the left is the
reproduction of a photograph taken under foggy conditions with an ordinary ultra-violet light camera
and at the right is a picture of the same view made with the new infra-red light camera.

DAYTON, Ohio-Fog, which baffles.
and imperils aviators, has been con-1
quered by a camera developed in the
experimental photographic laborator-
ies of the United States Army airt
corps at Wright Field. j
The camera, perfected under the
'supervision of Capt. Albert W. Stevens
of the U. S. Air Corps, has proved
capable of piercing a heavy fog screen
which the human eye was powerless
to penetrate.
Captain Stevens also has developed
a camera which he is convinced will
photograph clearly and distinctly ob-1
jects from 200 to 250 miles distant.
Wright Field officials are seeking a
practical test for this camera.
The secret of the fog-piercing cam-
era. lies i-n its ability to photograph

by use of the longer light waves. A
filter in the lens cuts out all light
except the infra-red. Special film
sensitive to the infra-red- rays, long-
est of the light waves, is used.
Pictures were taken from the top
of a mountain first with the best or-
dinary camera. The photographs
'showed the ridge in the foreground,
visible to the naked eye, but nothing
was visible beyond the fog screen
that hung in the valley and hid other
ridges.

spot with the fog-piercing camera pro.-
duced a perfect likeness of the ridge
in the foreground, the valley and other
ridges in the distance, failing to show
any traces of the fog banko that hid
them.
Many improvements have been made
on the camera in the past four years.
