Brophy has issued ;• I'oirnal stalerneii! vigorously denying that police protection has liven impaired because of failure of the hoard to act. The statement was made, the warden said, for the purpose of correcting "erroneous impressions that mi.yht have arisen diir'm.n' the past month."

The job is becoming more difficult, as reflected in his annual report for l!'4'i, showing 401' arrests, as against W2 jn 1045. Thus we have a paradox: all agree that the appointments should be niafh yet, we're assured, the department functions adequately withonl idem.
