Detective's Life Not All Play RICHMOND, Va. <3>t— The Private Eye in real life doesn't seem to be quite the type that divides his ef: forts between twitting the D.A.'s | office and fighting off blondes while i drilling an unsavory character here | and there. At least that's the way | it seemed at a meeting of the Pro- j fessional Detective Assn. of Virginia. ' The facts: The average detective at the meeting was 55, married, a bit overweight, didn't pack a rod, and was a former peace officer of some sort. He had one modest drink of blended whisky before lunch and after lunch smoked a 10-cent cigar. '1 never even shot at anybody,' said T. J. Cousins, association president, a private eye for 50 years.
