|fOUH'l'Et.M The New*, Frederick, Md., Wednesday, November 21.1981 Washington's Police Head Will Retire WASHINGTON, Nov. 20, UP)--A medical board found today that Maj. Robert J. Barrett is physically unfit to continue as Washington's police chief and recommended his retirement. The action came only three hours after Barrett' had turned over to -the Senate District Crime subcommittee · report on his finances showing a net worth of $60,550.35. (Major Barrett last month purchased a Frederick County farm near TJrbana). Barrett had led a police revolt against answering th» committee's 1,750 questions. He had been granted an extension of tune to prepare the answers when he became ill and entered a hospital. The nature of his illness has not been disclosed. The questionnaire was sent to policemen in the District of Columbia in connection with the committee's inquiry into crime in the national capital. After the questionnaire was prepared President Truman, by executive order, directed that income tax returns of all persons to whom the questionnaire wag sent should be turned over to the committee. The ruling by the Board of Police and Fire Surgeons that Barrett is physically unfit to carry on his duties as police chief was sent immediately to the Police Retirement Board. To Call For Retirement This board promptly met at Barrett's hospital bedside and later said its report--expected to call for retirement--will 'be submitted tomorrow to the District Commissioners. The Commissioners are the governing body for the District of Columbia. Barrett's retirement would end! a 26-year career for a scrappy Irishman who joined the police force as a private in July. 1925 and fought his way up from the ranks. His record slums more than 100 commendations ranging from outstanding bravery to just plain courtesy. It includes also four appearances before ths Police Trial Board on charges of mistreating prisoners. Barrett's financial report showed that most of his net worth of $60.550 35 is in real estate holdings. The real estate was set forth in the questionnaire as 58 properties held by Barrett and his sisters through inheritance. The questionnaire also showed that he inherited a one- ninth interest in his father's $147,000 estate in 1946, and that Ins salary as chief of police in 1950 was §10,329.84. To Campaign Against Night Hunters Here Regional Game Warden Benjamin F. Phebus, Tuesday announced a stcpped-up local drive against jacklighl hunters. Irate fanners whose cows have been promiscuously peppered with shot are sending in increasingly numerous complaints as the illegal night hunters also began to hunt deer with rifles after dark. The local game enforcement officer said the complaints of'illegal hunting by spotlight in fields and woods, "are higher this year than I have ever known them to be heretofore." No estimate of the number of livestock shot by night-hunters could be given, the game warden said, but the areas of complaint are well defined. Several arrests have been made for use of spotlights in hunting rabbits and game wardens have confiscated a few deer shot after dark. Phebus said. Sroced By Magistrate. Sportsmen are adding their protests to the farmers as unethical as well as illegal jacklighting goes on the increase. A local magistrate Monday night in heavily fining two offenders called the practice of blinding rabbits by spotlight and then shooting then sitting, as "reprehensible " Stepping up the drive on jack- lighters will make almost a 24- hour day's work for game wardens, with the rabbit season on and duck-hunting starting Thanksgiving Day. Phebus called attention to the fact that duck-hunters may not start to shoot until "noon" Thursday After the first day, the starting time will be one-half hour before sunrise local time Hunters may not continue hunting past the beginning of the hour before sun- ,ei. The duck season runs from noon November 22 to and including January 5, in Maryland. Bag limit is four kills, but it is impoitant to note that that Included in the four no hunter may have "more than one ' w o o d-d u c k Phebus emphaM/ed.
