To Help Solve Oklahoma Oil Field Mystery By NF.A gerrlc* BARTtESVILLE, Okla. — (NEA) —Detective William Fox of the 34th Precinct, Ne wYork City Police Department, is her« to help solve a mystery. He expects to work for one year on the case. But, at the end, he will take no prisoner back. Instead, he hopes to turn over to the U.S. Department ol Interior's Bureau of Mines the solution of a problem that is of tremendous imjwr- tnnce to the nation in its production of crude oil. Detective William Fox is also Dr. William Fox, the only Doctor of Phil. osophy among New York's 18.000 police. He earned the Ph.D. degree In Surface Chemistry from Columbia University In 1944. Now, at the request or the Bureau of Mines, Detective for Dr.) Fox has been granted a year's leave of absence to conduct research which, it Is hoped, will result in production of from 25 to 50 per cent more crude oil now in the earth. A science teacher In a New Haven, Conn., high school first stirred Fox's interest In chemistry. After his family moved to New York, he entered City College. To help pay he City College bakei-y.

At 21. he was graduated from City College with a Bachelor of Science degree, in ig^i Then lie went to work In chemistry at Columbia. There he came to (he attention of Prof. Arthur W. Thomas, head of the chemistry department. Thomas saw in him a potential scientist of importance. At his suggestion. Fox set his sights on a master's decree in chemistry. But expenses had to be paid. In 1939, Hltl Pox earned a place in Ihe spectacular swimming cast of Billy nose's Aquacade at the New Yort: World's Pair. •After the fair closed, he taught applied science in two New York City schools. Then, in 1940. Fox Joined the police lovcc. as a patrolman. . He covered « beat from midnight to 8 a.m. During the day he went to Columbia for his graduate course In chemistry. In 1942, he received his A.M. degree and, in 1944, his Ph. D. He was promoted to detective In 1945 and assigned to the police chemical laboratory. Later, because he wanted a more rounded experience In police work, he was transferred to the 34th Precinct In New York's busy Washington Heights. He continued his close association with Prof. Thomas at Columbia, and with his studies in surface chemistry which have made him one of the authorities in that field. His doctoral dissertation was entitled: "Equilibrium Relationships Between Fluid Intersurfaces: the Syst*m.,;4V'M$hylene lodide-Water- Mr." He <nas'taken an occasslonal day off to deliver reports before scientific societies In various eastern cities.

But he's slill one of New York's Finest and he expects to be back. "Because," he explains, "the work of being a policeman today is a great job. too. Today's policeman recognizes the social ol his work and the tact that he has a social responsibility to the :onimunity. He Is there to help and to protect, not just to punish.-" "He studies people and he learns great deal about them. It Is true perhaps, that I'm something of curiosity en the !orce< with my Ph. D in chemistry. But I believe that every policeman of five years' experience has learned enough about people, their habits, their thinking, the working of their minds, to qualify for a Ph. D. In psychology." New Play by Shaw Involves Atom Bomb LONDON 'A'i—Bernard Shaw has written a play about the world after atomic bombing. It's called "Far- Fetched Fables" and will be published before August. So the 92-year-old playwright told a reporter who saw the play listed to Shaw's credit in the 1949 edition of "Who's Who" and telephoned him to find out about it. Shaw's biography in the book, supplied by himself, still gives his recreation as "being past 90". Russian Sailors Urged to Beware Of Foreign spies MOSCOW IfTi— A recent lead editorial In "Red Fleet" told Soviet sailors to beware of foreign spies. The editorial declared that "agents of foreign Intelligence services are attempting to obtain various Information; in particular, Information on the armed forces of our country". It said that the "very character of military service oblige* every soldfer. sailor and officer to be always watchful and on guard." "Red Fleet" added that "/or enemy agents any—even the most Insignificant Information—has Interest" and explained that "from details the large picture is built up." "Red Fleet" declared that "enemy agents especially are on the lookout ' CT P«opl» 'ho •'• unstable and who are sycophuilc before things foreign, for slipshod persons aud gossips." Tiie enemy, the paper said, uses widely the weapon of "bourgeois cosmopolitanism" attempting to weaken Soviet people and undermine their Soviet patriotism. It is a mistake, declared the editorial, to think that only when a sailor Is on watch must he be on the lookout. He must all the time exercise hUs care and be vigilant, on or off duty. The editorial concluded: "The minister of the armed forces obliges all Soviet warriors to be always in battle readiness. And battle readiness presupposes also high vigilance. It Is the duty of Soviet naval personnel- to vigilantly and ably protect the sea boundaries of our country of socialism. ThU demand of the motherland Is » sacred law for every warrior of the Soviet navy." SUSPENSE Every Thursday Evening WREC 8:00 JOHN MILES MILLER CO.
