Watching Soda Fountains. Here's another wearer of the magic little silver shield. Considerably smaller than Miss Goldman she is. Nevertheless, Sarah Cohen, despite the fact that she is only twelve old, is a full fledged policewoman. I Little Miss Sarah is assigned to the , soda fountain squad Her duties consist of keeping an eye on the soda fountains in the Immediate neighborhood in which she lives i If she sees a little girl, her own 1 or even older, spending more | on frequent trips to the soda than her own good sense tells her I little girl should have to spend, · Sarah finds out just who the girl ; and then report* to the office of association. The association after that makes effort to win the favor and arouse interest of the delinquent young woman by having some other young policewoman make friends with her, much as Policewoman Goldman did her work. When It is possible to point out the young miss the error of her and bring her In to the association no o'her method than kind words I gentle coaxings, It Is done. But If . girl proves stubborn the association 'assumes the responsibility of notifying the girl's parents of her failings and also drops a gentle, but at the same time, a very meaning hint to- proprietor of that particular soda fountain to discourage rather than encourage certain patronage. Hundreds of girl cops also belonca , »o what are known as health i One snuad Is detailed to do nothing i hut watch the sale of loose milk--to sec whether It is bandied with Ordln- arv care. If It Isn't the board of i -eceivcs a complaint almost imme- ^iatelv from the association, the com- 1 plaint being based on reports aut- , rnltted bv the young girl cops.
