Second Section Classifieds Comics THE DANVILLE REGISTER Elliott, Martin Made Detectiv es Police Vacancies Sufficient personnel have been. recruited to fill all exist- £g vacancies in the Danville Police Department, Chief E.

Earlier this month the department had seven vacancies but one slot wa s filled when former policeman Jackson Brown returned to the force after completing a military tour. Chief McCain said the other six vacancies should be filled by the 15th of this month. Several police recruits have been notified of their appointment and now are in the process of getting physical examinations from their doctors or working notices with their present employers. Background checks are being made on others who will be hired if these checks show nothing in then: past that woulc prevent employment, McCain said Elliott has been working in the plainclothes division on a temporary basis for severa months. Chief McCain said his appointment as a detective was made permanent to fill the vacancy left in that division by the resignation of Harry Shel ton, who is joining the loca Post Office staff. Elliott, son of veteran Pittsyl vania County Deputy Sheriff Carson Elliott, has been with the department approximately seven years. He is a graduate of the County School System. Martin has been with the force eight years. He is a graduate of. George Washington High School. He is being assigned to the detective division to replace L. T. (Boots) Jones, who has been assigned temporarily to the uniform division because of ill health. Jones is working as complaint officer until he can recover his strength sufficiently to return to the more sterenuous duties of detective. CQief McCain said he has had the "four platoon system" under study for' some time but has not decided yet to go ahead •with it. However, he said he looks with favor on it because it will eliminate a lot of scheduling and personnel problems. At present the uniform division is organized into three platoons, each with a lieutenant and two sergeants. The platoons rotate shifts each month, so that every three months, each platoon has worked the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., 4 p.m. to midnight and midnight to 8 a.m. shifts. Under this system, the department usually has 15 to 18 men off each day. Under the four-platoon system, this number of men would make up a complete platoon. Police departments in both Martinsville and Roanoke already are on the four-platoon system. In those cities, a platoon works seven straight days on one shift, then the entire platoon has a day off; when the platoon comes back, it changes shifts and works another seven days before getting another day off; then it changes shifts again for another week before taking five full days off. Thus the men in one platoon all take the same days off Instead of scheduling their days off at the start of each month under the present system, they would know, under the four- platoon system, for the year ahead what days off they will have. McCain said he thinks the men would be happier with the four- platoon system because they can plan off-duty trips well in advance. Because the platoons would be changing shifts once a week instead of once a month it would mean less likelihood they would fall into patrol patterns that could be observed and capitalized upon by criminals. The four platoon system would require the appointment or one additional lieutenant, McCain said. He said, however, that no new sergeants would be needed since each platoon would require only one. McCain said the new system could be instituted with the men he now has. Although it would be simpler in operation than the present set-up, he warned it is "not a panacea for all our problems." Although he has enough recruits to fill existing vacancies, ne has not begun to fill the six new positions on the force authorized in the 1966 budget by City Council, McCain said However, he indicated these would be filled shortly and said the additional manpower will permit the department to do a number of things it has wanted to do before but hasn't been able to do because of a labor shortage. He cited, as examples, roving patrols on such high-accident thoroughfares as Riverside Drive and Memorial Drive. The uniform division also will lave sufficient men to assign some to the detective division during times when that division has on its hands an inves- igation that requires considerable time and personnel, such as the recent bank robbery. It also will mean more men work- ng at night for closer patrolling of business areas where burglaries are frequent, McCain said. The New Year was an hour and a half old and Danville still was without its first baby of 19S6 — but not Memorial Hospital. At one minute past midnight, Mrs. Judith Pyron Wray of Pelham, N. C., Rt. 1, presented her husband, Phillip M. Wray, with a handsome baby boy. Had the little tyke put in his appearance 60 seconds earlier, his dad would have a hospital bill to pay. But, with Dr. Walter McMann certifying the arrival time at 12:01, 1966, the hospital hill for baby and mother will be on the house the 12th consecutive year Memorial has done this for its first baby of the year. Memorial's second baby also seemed likely to arrive early in the day. Another mother was reported in labor in the delivery room at 1:30. However, it was understood the mother has a Rt. 4 address and hence will not be qualified for the variety of presents to be given by Danville merchants. The merchants' prizes go to the first baby of Danville residents born in the New Year. The gifts include baby food, clothing, bedding, stroller, vitamins, vaporizer and gift certificates. Just when the stork will swoop down with Danville's first baby of the year was a matter of conjecture early this morning. At Winslow Hospital, nurses reported they not only had no new babies but no prospects of any. Served 32 Years City Sergeant Holt Lyon Dies Last Day In Off ice New Year Greeted Quietly; Most Offices Closed Today Danville welcomed the first day of. 1966 quietly but with its leaders looking forward confidently to another, good and, probably, better year — economically speaking. Most federal and state offices and the city's retail stores will he closed today — New Year's Day —. although some local industries will follow a regular work schedule. One of the exceptions is Dan State's Higher Education Seen Not Being Met RICHMOND, Va. _ Vir- . ginia has not done, and is not doing, all that it might to meet the demands of higher education, a Virginia Higher Education Study Committee staff report said Friday. Many conclusions reached by the ::taff report, prepared by Dr. James R. Connor, associate director of the Study of Higher Education in Virginia, were included in the overall commission report released recent^. Per capita expenditures by the state and its local government:, for higher education in 1962 averaged $16.50, compared to a national average of $21.71 the staff report said. And, it said, the number of academic and professional degrees awarded and the number of students attending Virginia's institutions of higher learning are well below the level expected from * state with 2 per cent of the national population. The 12-state-supported Institutions of Higher Learning as well as the 36 private colleges and universities were covered In the report. The report pointed out that the University of Virginia, Virginia. Tech and the College of William and Mary — Virginia's largest state-supported college River Mills where employes generally are to have a full holiday. At Corning Glass Works, a spokesman said the plant will have a normally scheduled production day except when individual department heads otherwise specify. Corning office personnel and some other em- ployes do not work normally on Saturdays; The local Disston plant will be closed an extra day on Monday, following its normal two-day weekend shutdown. The post office also will be closed today, as will the Social Security office and most other federal offices, and banks will be closed as usual. No extra holiday j s planned tor employes of the Virginia Employment Commission on Lynn St. and the Division of Motor Vehicles, which are normally closed on Saturday. However, ABC stores will be closed today following the usual 6 p.m. closing yesterday. City Hall employes will get no extra days this New Year's weekend, closing as usual yesterday from 5 p.m. until Monday morning. City Greets New Year In Quiet Way From all external appearances, Danville greeted the New Year quietly. Downtown, there-were but a handful of cars' — so few, in fact, that one could actually hear the clock strike 12, Only two or three drivers hailed 1966 with toots of the horn and they did it almost timidly. Around the city, the sound of an exploding firecracker was heard here and there, but it was nothing like the usual welcome provided. In the past, the downtown area has been almost bumper- to-bumper with cars, each with horn blaring relentlessly. Only the sound of fireworks could be heard above the cacophony of horns. Police, however, waited patiently for the New Year to age an hour or two, knowing that the revelers at dances and parties soon would be spilling outside. They apparently were inside most of New Year's Eve. Police investigated only a couple of accidents last night and, in but one of these, was excessive drink listed as a cause. Eighteen-year-old Gary Lee Murphy of 151 Hartford St went to jail on a drunk driving charge after treatment for his injuries in an accident on Community Drive. He sustained a cut hp and complained of his knees hurting. Officer H. R. Chancy said Murphy lost control of his car smashe-l between a parked car and panel truck and rammed into a cement stoop at 814 Sydnor St. Damages totaled $415. Earlier in the night, Helene Lemons 48, of 167 Riverview Drive, sustained a back injury in a mishap on the Memorial Hospit? parking lot. Officer H. L. Hyler said she 'as a passenger i n a car operated by serviceman Jack C. Lemons, Jr., 21, also of 167 Riverview Drive, when it was bumped into by an ambulance P. Holt Lyon died last nigh at 9:30, two and one-halt hours before he would have ended 32 years of service as Danville City Sergeant. Mr. Lyon had been in il health since March. It was the increasing infirmities of age- he was 81—that led him lasl January to decide against seek ing a ninth term as City Ser geant. His eighth full term expired at midnight. Walter M. Riddle a chief deputy for 13 years anc trained by Mr. Lyon as his probable successor, was sworn in yesterday afternoon. Mr. Lyon began his political career in 1933 after a 20-yeai career in banking. He left a position with the First National Bank that year to enter a six-way Democratic primary race to succeed P. H. Boisseau, who had resigned when he became physically incapacitated. Mr. Lyon finished in front and the following Jan. 1 took office. Since then, through seven successive terms, he had been unbeatable, handily defeating opposition whenever it appeared. During his long tenure in the office, the workload tripled as the city grew and the office staff was increase gradually from five to 16. Mr. Lyon took considerable pride in the consistently high rating given the Danville Jail by inspectors of the Virginia Department of Welfare and Institutions during the years it was under his jurisdiction. H e was the city's second octogenarian office-holder to die this year. Eugene H Marshall, City Treasurer for almost 40 years, died in April at he age of 84. Mr. Lyon died in the Roman Sagle Memorial Home. A native and lifelong resident of Danville, he was a member of the First Christian ihurch, the Host Lions Club, P. HOLT LYON Danville Lodge of Elks, Chickasaw Tribe of Red Men, Loyal Order of Moose and the Bethesda Lodge of Odd Fellows. He was married first of Mrs. Mary Holland Woollcy, who died 12 years ago. He married Mrs. Elizabeth Meeks Thompson on Feb. 24, 1961. He was born Sept. 29, 1884, and was the son of P. T. an Sallie Goodson Lyon. In addition to his wife, h is survived by a sister, Mi; Kat Lyon of Danville; on brother, W. Burton Lyon o Greensboro, N.C.; and the fo lowing step-children: Mrs. E! zabeth Pollok of Alexander Mrs. Reuben Parker of Ver Beach, Fla., T. Benton Woolle of Danville and Mrs. W.

A Corporation Court jury, after deliberating over two hours, awarded the 69-year-old Exarhou all but $1,000 of the $36.750 ho insisted he gave his widowed landlady, Mrs. Helen M. Nicholous, in anticipation lie would die after entering the hospital for surgery. j After the verdict of the seven-man jury was returned, however, Defense Attorney George B. Anderson moved to set aside the verdict as contrary to law and evidence. Judge A. M. Aiken will hear arguments on the motion at 10 a.m. Monday. During the trial of Exarhou's suit to recover the money ho said he gave Mrs. Nicholous, Exarhou maintained he turned over tho money to her to pav his medical and funeral expenses and other debts with the understanding she would keep what was left.

The decline in construction .ctivity was felt most in the ew home market. Permits for only 178 new omes were issued during the ear, making 1965 the first year ince 1954 that fewer than 200 ew homes have been started ere. A slowdown in the construction of new apartments also was evident. Eight new apartment buildings, containing 56 units, were started in 1965, as compared to 13 buildings with 122 units in 1964. The slower activity in new homes and apartments account for most of the difference between the final 1965 figure and the 1964 total of $5,689,331, Commercial and industrial construction remained as strong as last year, although well below 1962 and 1963 when Down- towner Motor Inn and ne%v shopping centers were boosting the dollar value of the building permits. There also was considerable residential alterations and repairs during the past year with 396 permits being issued for this purpose. The value of the work done was $501,510.

Thirty years ago, an Altona, Pa., basketball coach took a vacation in Washington, D.C., and there experienced "a good break." That "good break" came when a friend suggested to Dick Irwin that he join the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Irwin did, landed a job and has been with the FBI ever since—until today. Today Richard" J. Irwin, Jr., is a retired special agent of the FBI. His retirement after 30 years of service came yesterday. The first days of his retirement will be spent working around the house on' Arlington Rd. in Druid Hills where ho and his wife, Mary Amelia, live. After that, he has "something in mind" but, whatever it is, it will not mean leaving Danville. 'You can't beat Danville," he says emphatically. "I've been ;o Penssylvania, Mississippi and all around and I know." Irwin was born and reared at Altoona where he starred in Basketball at Altiona Catholic h School. His performance on the court won him a foiu-- r basketball scholarship to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. After graduating from Duquesne, he returned lo Altoona as coach and athletic director of his old high school for one year. Then came the vacation to Washington, the suggestion from a friend and Irwin was working with the FBI in Washington in a clerical capacity. He attended law school a night and received his LL.B de :c in 13-11 from National Uni versity Law School. Following his appointment a a special agent in September 1942, he served in Jackson Miss., Birmingham, Ala., am Pittsburgh, before being assign ed to Danville. He's been in Danville for tho R. J. IRWIN JR. past 20 years. It was here that his children, three daughters anc! two sons, were reared. As an agent, he won the respect of his associates with his ability to investigate matters. In 1964, he apprehended Thomas Edward Galloway, one the FB['s "Top Ten" fugitives, on a local golf course. Irwin, like most agents, is reluctant to discuss his years as an FBI agent other than to say, "I've had a very exciting career in my 30 years." And, he e-mpliasi/.ps, that vacation in Washington "was a good break for me." were investigated. Sam M.
