COCKIER M1W» PAGB THREW Lady Police Commissioner Tells How Dogs Help Law Enforcement By HII.IKI, BLACK PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Four German shepherd dogs, which at a command will jump through a plate glass window, are being used in an experiment that may prove the solution to the shortage of police officers in many of the nation's communities. The experiment, first of its kind in city police work according to Commissioner Margurite C. Johnson of Dearborn, Mich., is being conducted in her city of 120,000. "Instead of having two policemen on a beat, we can send out a dog and an officer," she said. "The dog, if through commanded, plate glass jump window, flush out a suspect and disarm him, enter a burning building to search for victims, scale a 14-foot fence and stand'guard.'* Mrs. Johnson, who is the nation's only woman police commissioner is attending the 62nd annual International Assn. of Chiefs of Police Conference here. A grandmother, she also is commissioner of—the Fire and Communications Department . Travel in Patrol Cars "So far," she said, "we think the experiment is terrific." "The dogs, who also travel in patrol cars, could save many officers' lives," she said. "If a man is armed with a knife or gun or is holed up somewhere, the dog will find him, flush him out, disarm him and then gutrd him until the officer arrives. "And officers get no sass when they are patrolling with a dog. Everybody respects them." She recalled how a dog held four men at bay while an officer left him and walked down a long block to call for a patrol car. When he relumed, she said, thejnen hadn't Sun-Powered Telephone System Put in Operation in Georgia sufficient for continuous operation AMEEICUS, Ga. Wi—The sun furnished a rural telephone line \Vith power for the first time yesterday. George L. Mathews, a farmer, placed the first call on electricity supplied by a solar battery put into use here by Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Co. Bell engineers switched solar power into the rural telephone system in this community, 135 miles south of Atlanta. Mathews' call on the eight-party country line was the first in a test to determine the precise efficiency and value of the solar battery, which converts the sun's energy into electricity and stores excess current not needed for immediate telephone use into a storage battery. It was Invented by a three-member team at the Bell Telephone laboratories: O. L. Pearson and D. M. Chapin, physicists, and C. S. Puller, chemist. Roughly it consists of 432 very thin silicon cells encased in an aluminum housing less than a yard square. The cells, about the size ! of a 25-cent piece, are. electrically j linked, cushioned in oil and cov- ' ered by glass. The silicon is very sensitive to the sun's rays and generates an electric current which is drained off into a storage battery. The current reaches its peak when the sun is brightest. The goal Is to generate enough current at intervals of bright sunshine to form a battery backlog of the telephone circuit. Fire for Pets OWOSSO, Mich. Wl — A fire in a. wheat field broke up a family picnic on the Clyde Button farm — and a cat and dog profited. After dealing with the fire, Mrs. Sutton said she found the cat had eaten a pound of picnic butter and the dog had finished off the rest of thei food. ' budged an inch. Commissioner Johnson brought one of'the dogs, Sgt. Orvie, with her to the convention. Like all the dogs, he is perfectly gentle unless commanded by his officer or trainer to flush out a quarry or attack. Sgt. Orvie registered at the convention by sticking his paw dipped in ink on an application blank.
