- ' :. . ! ) I ) Chief of Police in Miami, Walter Headley, Dies at 63 MIAMI wi Walter Head-ley, architect of a crime crackdown that sent police dogs and shotgun-toting patrolmen into Miami's slums in force, died yesterday, but his tough police techniques will live on. Headley, Miami police chief for 20 years, died of cardiac arrest at a local hospital yesterday morning. He was 63. The chief embroiled himself In national controversy drawing praise from some public officials and criticism from national civil rights leaders when he ordered the intensified enforcement of the law after a rash of Christmas robberies and murders in the city Negro district last year. Miami Mayor Stephen P. Clark said yesterday Head-ley's policy "will always be in existence in this city." i i ... i s i ; f J. i VJi 4 Clark said: "The policy which has been recently begun by Chief Headley called by the press a "get-tough' policy apparently has been effective because our crime rate has not risen as fast as the na tional average. The policy of the City Commission is to en force the law without dis- -crimination." An ambulance took Headley .to a local hospital Friday inight for treatment of pleurisy .lingering since September swhen he suffered a fall that .cracked several ribs and sprained an ankle. His heart topped at 8:35 a.m. yester day, Miami police reported. I The 6-foot-3, 250-pound vet eran of 31 years on the Miami police force announced last December he was abandoning community relations efforts fand , said vhis officers were yunder orders to use shotguns !and dogs in a war on hood lums. ;. b "Felons will learn that they can't be bonded out of the morgue," Headley said. "We don't mind being accused of police brutality. They haven't .seen anything yet." v,: 'Headley later reported robberies in Miami's Negro district had dropped from 188 last December to 71 in January, 88, in February and 130 in Funeral Notices ATKINSON, EDWIN D. SR. Funeral (services I'.'i cuwin u. nuiuson at, : age 81. of 6009 Hiver Terrace will be held Monday at 2 o'clock from the Chapel of JENNINGS FUNERAL HOME, 6S0O Nebraska- Ave., at Sligh, with Rev. H. C. Stringfellowr a retired Baptist Minister officiating. Interment will follow in Orange Hill Cemetery. Chief Headley ... controversial March. However, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reported there were 27 murders in Miami in the first six months of 1967 and 33 in the first half of this year. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley praised Headley when he announced the policy. And Headley said Chicago police followed his lead in handling demonstrators at the democratic National Convention there in August. "Mayor Daley went right along with my suggestion," Headley said. But when a 16-year-old Negro accused two city policemen of dangling him by his heels 75-feet over the Miami River, Headley suspended both men immediately. One officer resigned from the force and the other was dismissed. They later pleaded guilty to federal charges of violating the boy's civil rights. Negro leader's said the chief's quick suspensions of the men probably averted a racial disturbance. When riots erupted in Miami during the Republican National Convention last summer,, while Headley was vacationing, looters were not fired upon. Three Negroes were shot to death, but they died in shootouts with police. Headley, who ' had twice married and divorced, wed a police-woman seven months ago. Other survivors include three sons, Jack and Joseph, both former policemen who became lawyers, and Tom, a student at the University of Florida. The funeral will be Tuesday at 3 p.m. in Bayfront Park Au ditorium. It will be a military- style funeral with a procession of : police motorcycles and cars. Circuit Court Judge J. Fritz Gordon will conduct the service. Resign? If So, Who Follows? WASHINGTON Ul Will FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover choose his 74th birthday next Jan. 1 to announce his retirement? There's speculation in the Justice Department that he will, but no word from the director himself, nor from his close associates. President - elect Richard M. Nixon is a friend of Hoover's, and possibly he'll be the only one entrusted with advance knowledge of Hoover's intentions. Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark probably won't. The relationship between Hoover and Clark is known to have cooled in the past year. A bigger question than Hoover's possible retirement date, however, is who will replace the man who has spent 44 years as the nation's top police officer.

PHONE 251-1001 Established 1898 TAMPA'S OLDEST By JACK G. YENT Will Rodgers said, "We all should live so we wouldn't mind selling the family parrot to the town gossip." and added "But who's that careful?" . . . While it is true some people delight in gossip, we believe an overwhelming majority of people dislike gossip, mild or malicious. We believe most people would like to graciously discourage gossip but often hesitate through fear of hurting the feelings of the gossiper. When one listens to gossip, a grip occurs between the listener and the gossiper. A good way to avoid the grip and keep gossip from coming out of the mouth is to refuse to lend an ear for it to come in. A few simple questions asked with a friendly smile can silence any gossip. For example, "Where did you hear that?" . . . "Who started that rumor?" . . . "You don't really believe that, do you?" . . . "How many people have you told that to?" . . . "Why do you think I'm interested in hearing that?" . . . "You don't really think I believe that, do you.' . . . etc. ... Such questions invariably squelch gossip. Friendships are kept and both you and the gossiper feel better . . . JACK G. YENT, President, F. T. BLOUNT CO. FUNERAL HOMES ... our 51st year, Tampa and Lutz, Florida.
