Big City Police Feeling Financial Pinch (C) A'eir York Time* Sen-ice NEW YORK - Because of financial squeezes, police departments in major cities across the country are cutting back on personnel, or at least not adding people, at a time when crime rates are spiraling. This reverses a trend of the 1960's, when police departments had little trouble obtaining the funds they felt were needed to fight crime. A check of several cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Boston. Cleveland. Atlanta. Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas and Detroit, found police officers and citizens worried that the situation was approaching a critical stage. A few believe that stage has been reached. "We have the same apprehensions here as all over the country," said Gerald Rademaker, former police chief and now executive assistant for law enforcement to the mayor of Cleveland, where crime was up 19.8 per cent for the first four months of this year. The city's police force is down from 2.459 in 1970 to 2,255. * * * RADEMAKER and other police officials said the money pinch was compounded by cutbacks in federal funds from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, funds many police departments had become dependent upon. Police Commissioner Robert J. di Gratia of Boston said Law Enforcement Assistance Administration money had been cut from $1 million to $500,000. "Local funds just aren't there to pick up the slack," Rademaker said. "In these times, people don't want to be taxed any further, and that makes it very difficult to get any new money locally." He said that Cleveland's situation was not as bad this year as it was expected to be next year. In Dallas, a hiring freeze is in effect; the city experienced a 16 per cent increase in crime the last year. Los Angeles officials said there was a slowdown in the hiring rate rather than a freeze, but that the effect was the same and the police authorities were concerned. Only vacancies are filled. The city recorded an 8 per cent rise in major crimes in May over the same month a year ago. Pittsburgh, after crime increased 19 per cent the first four months of this year, decided to add 50 officers to the police force, the first new personnel in five years. Mayor Abraham Beame of New York City submitted a budget last month that threatened the jobs of 4,725 policemen, which would reduce the force to 25,860, the lowest since 1965. ·'We find ourselves unable to respond adequately to routine calls." said Lt. Dan Cook, assistant to the police chief of Los Angeles. "We don't have a problem responding immediately on a hot call, such as a robbery in progress. But what a citizen considers urgent and what we have decided must take priority are not necessarily the same." OF THE CITIES checked, only Atlanta experienced a reversal of the trend. Throughout the 19C-0's, the city enjoyed relatively slight shifts in crime rates and became an attractive area in which to live. But in the 1970's Atlanta has seemed plagued by every urban ill. especially a rapid rise in crime. However, this year, crime decreased through the middle of this month in all major categories except assaults. The Atlanta police force has increased . to 1,561 from 952 in 1970. The department is now hiring only to fill vacancies. Police Commissioner A. Reginald Eaves attributed the decline not to the size of the force but "to the techniques we've employed, the improvement- of our training and better supervision." Some police officials complained that court orders concerning female and minority employment had added to their hiring problems. A discrimination suit in Chicago not only held up hiring and promotion within the police department but also resulted in a cutoff of the city's $76-million in revenue-, sharing funds. * A 10 6 4 3 2 * A Q * J 3 4 1 0 9 5 The bidding: North East pass pass pass pass 4 * South 1* 3 4 pass West 2* pass pass Today's hand is from a column by R. M. Woodworth which appeared in the Petersburg, Fla., Times, South and his partner, a bridge pupil, needed a good score to make up for some deficiencies that had arisen on earlier deals. The East player was well- known for misapplying the considerable amount of bridge knowledge that she had stored away over the years. iWest led the king of clubs and continued with the ace on which East played the deuce of diamonds. East now concentrated so hard on her next discard that when West led the club jack and declarer trumped with dummy's queen she became confused. Instead of overtrumping with the king she played another diamond. Now positive that West held the king of trumps, South realized he could still make the contract if the king was either singleton or doubleton. He led the ace and a low spade and to his amazement East produced the king and jack for a one trick set. . At every other table where the contract was a spade game East overtrumped the spade queen and later lost the jack when South finessed with the 10. LAST WEEK'S WINNERS BRIDGETTE CLUB 1. Mrs. W. L.

No casualties were reported. The radio network, All India Radio, said in a newscast that the New Delhi police suspected that the blaze had been an instance of sabotage by opposition political parties carrying out prepared plans, announced earlier this week, for a national pretest campaign against the Gandhi government. The fire, which broke out at 4:30 p.m. local time, took firemen four hours to bring under control. The fire did not disrupt television broadcasts of the TV network, which is also part of All India Radio, directed by the ministry of information and broadcasting. All India Radio reported that the fire had broken out in the basement of the studio building and had spread quickly to the studio itself. ^Schwartz Named Deputy Director Gerald Schwartz has been named deputy director of the West Virginia Department of Commerce's industrial development division, Commerce Commissioner Ralph Albertazzie announced^ Schwartz, 43, most recently served as state director of WIN (Work Incentive Program), which is administered by the Department of Employment Security. · Albertazzie said Schwartz will be involved in all phases of the continuing program to attract new industries, expand existing gpes and provide financing^ relatedmanufacturing and idust What do you look for in kitchen cabinets? -·*, '^ 'Vi'V.Oi ··_± *t*i »^I ,//^i 66 INCH KITCHEN STARTER SET TIARA STYLE Whether your kitchen is country, contemporary, or colonial; Tiara styling has the good looks to blend with any decor.
