Burgess Anderson called thc appointment deadlock "outrageous" and said he was of thc opinion thc police force should be built up to standards. In retaliation-to thc appointment of supernumeraries to regulars in thc same night he said, "you cai't lake men off thc streets and make them policemen. There are supernumeraries who have served- many years with experience, but you take a man off the street pin a badge on his chest, give him u. gun in his pocket and club in his hand and call him a policeman. Because thai happened to thc chief it doesn't mean a thing." No Consideration He said the minority side of the board has not been givep any consideration in thc past two years, with thc warden remarking that appointments were the privilege of the majority side. Burgess Anderson said it is up to the waraen to maintain harmony and added, "you have been very lax nnd you haven't been considerate. You arc sitting as a Democrat and only as a Democrat.
