' In several aspects, these were discussed by North-Central Iowa enforcement officers at an all-day conference sponsored by the fed- e r a l bureau of investigation Thursday at the Hotel Hanford. In a typical speech, the ironic fact that wartime scientific developments will be used to combat the postwar crime wave expected by the officials was presented by Sgt. Lyle Dawson of the Iowa highway patrol. History seems to indicate that an outburst of lawlessness follows every war in direct proportion to the intensity of the conflict and the Dumber of people involved. This expected crime -wave, according to the sergeant, will cover the nation like a blanket of snow, drifting into the sheltered places. "It is too great a problem to overlook or to postpone," he said. "We'must prepare ahead of time." He urged the officers to take every precaution; to guard against crime in the "sheltered places;" to insure adequate staffs; .to keep aware of the potentialities facing them. Among the factors influencing the projected postwar rise in crime he listed the following: Millions of men are receiving training in the art of killing. They are--they must be--taught to take human life at random, as scientifically and skillfully as possible. Some of them are likely to employ that training when they return to civilian life. There will be an infiltration of the criminal element from other countries into the United States, similar to the one which brought criminals like the Capone gang here after the last war. The migration back to their homes of workers, drawn to production centers during the war, will offer a parallel difficulty. The big paychecks will stop and thousands will be left with "champagne appetites-and beer wages" as an incentive to crime. Many civilians have learned to cheat during the war--to get a little extra sugar, a black-market steak, an illegal tire. They will be left with little regard for law- Wars always produce emotional deviates. There is likely to be more of the violent sort of crime --rape, murder, arson -- engendered by emotional and 1 mental instability. Sgt. Dawson explained how the advances made along scientific lines during the war can be used to curb crime. Radar screens may .

Dawson predicted, will come into use as a sort ol lie detector, by which it will be possible to confront a suspect with a map of the area in which a crime took place and discover whether his eyes pick out and return to the scene of the crime. New and powerful microscopes will be available for work in laboratories, to analyze bloodstains and fingerprints. From a tiny particle of paint left by a hit-and- run car on the victim's clothing, it will be possible to discover the make and year of the automobile and eventually lo track down the driver. The approximately 100 officials who attended the conference also discussed the Sept. 14, 1942, dynamiting of the Burlington route Zephyr train near Corning, one of the major sabotage cases being investigated by the FBI. E R Fletcher, a special FBI agent, led" this discussion. The officers asked questions and gave suggestions concerning the case.
