Prof. John B. Waite Is On

Bar Association Is To Hear
Plan At Annual Meeting
Next Month
ST. LOUIS, July 19. - (R) -Estab-
lishment of a nation-wide system of
federal "crime laboratories" will be
recommended to the American Bar
Association at its annual meeting at
Milwaukee next month.
Details of the plan are included
in the report of the association's
committee on co-operation with the
International Chiefs of Police asso-
ciation. The report will be presented
to the bar association, probably in
the form of a resolution, Aug. 27.
As outlined today by Arthur J.'
Freund, chairman of the committee
and a former police commissioner,
the plan is designed to promote co-
prdination between state, local and
federal authorities establishing fed-
eral criminal identification bureaus,
each containing a complete duplicate
fingerprint register, in each of the
circuits of the United States court of
Other members of the committee
which drew up the report were Prof.
John Barker Waite, University of
Michigan Law School; Oscar Hallam,
St. Paul, former judge of the Minne-
sota supreme court; Dean Andrew A.
Bruce, Northwestern University school
of law, and Dean Justin Miller, Duke
Bureau Facilities
In addition to complete identifi-
cation facilities, including a rogues
gallery, each bureau would contain a
staff of handwriting experts, special-
,ists in the medico-legal field, psy-
chiatrists, alienists, and experts in
ballistics, chemistry and physics.
Assignment to, the bureaus of ex-
perienced parole investigators, both
men and women, is proposed to aid in
establishing a co-ordinated supervis-
ory method of dealing with prisoners
who are paroled in one state and go
to another.
Pointing out that the Federal gov-
ernment is becoming an increasingly
important factor in crime enforce-
ment, Freund said establishment of
the bureaus "would bring the full fa-
cilities of the government to the
people without loss of time or en-
tangling red tape."
Urlnecessary Delays
"Under the present system it is
often a matter of days before the
identificatin data may be obtained
from the central bureau at Washing-
ton," he said, urging that the bureaus
would not only permit quick identifi-
cation, but would maintain experts
who could travel throughout the cir-
cuits, giving valuable aid to rural and
metropolitan police.
Research possibilities of the pro-
posed bureaus were emphasized by
Freund, who declared that "in the last
three decades the development of
abllistics is the only major scientific
advance in crime detection since the
invention of fingerprints."
Among promising fields listed by
Freund as offering opportunity for
crime research by bureau investiga-
tors were the classification of bullets,
chemical and medical research work
designed to ascertain the cause of sus-
picious deaths which today are
deemed to be natural, study of poi-
son's and psychiatry.

Doctor Devises Method
To Test Oxygen Intake
WASHINGTON, July 18.-- (P) -
A new aid to medical treatment, a
quick and easy method of measuring
how much oxygen a patient is using,
has been devised by Dr. J. Marion
Read of San Francisco.
It enables a 'physician to deter-
mine the sick man's oxygen consump-
tion by feeling his pulse and taking
his blood pressure. Knowing the oxy-
gen consumption of the human body
accurately is often useful in treating'
illness. Dr. Read has reported his
discovery to the American Associa-
tion for the Advancement of Science.
