THIS FINE NEW BOOK HAS MUCH ABOUT POLICE The University of California Press at Berkeley has just announced the publication of a book entitled "Crime and The State Police," by August Volhner and Alfred E. Parker. The co-authors spent about four years gathering material for this book, their studies and investigations including both the state police here and in Eu- rope. M'r. Volhner was for thirty years Chief of Police at Berkeley, Califor- nia, and during his years of police service became world famous as a po- lice administrator and criminologist. Mr. Parker, besides being a member of the Berkeley School System, has been assisting Mr. Vollmer for a nu-n- bet of years. Mr. Parker, who is also tile son-in-law of M,r. and Mrs. L. C, Waldman, 134 Whitley Avenue, has spent his summers here at Avalon for several years. "CRIME AND THE STATE PO- LICE" is a popular presentation, bear- ing lightly the weight of recognized authority; a ,book for public and po- lice alike. The authors present in this volume their findings, with re- commendations for improving the po- lice service and making more efficient 'the combatting of crime in the United States. As an example of some of the sub- jects written about in the book, the following chapter headings are in- lightening: Crime and the State; Special Attempts to ContTol Crime; Special State Police, Highway Po- lice on Patrol; The State Turns De- tective; State Police; In Foreign Countries; Crime and More Crime; and, Crime and Police Morale.

That's why the legislature submitted to the people in Proposition No. 1 on the ballot for the August 13 special election, bond issue proposals for $950,000 to build extensions on the Capitol in Sacramento and $1,000,000 for enlargement of the S tafl~ Building in Los Angeles. Not only will the proposed improve- ments save California a huge sum of money, but they will make it possible to concentrate governmental depart- ments in Sacramento in the Capitol and State Building and in Los Angeles, in the State Building there. At present, office rentals in the southern city cost $40,441.80 a year and in Sacramento, $57,000 a year. In the capitol city, the Board of Equalization alone pays $3960 a month for extra office slSace outside the Capitol. The adoption of this building pro- gram will enable the state to partici- pate in the federal works program so that the amount provided may be in- creased materially by federal funds. The projects contemplated are lo- cated in all sections of tile state and will afford considerable relief for un- employment. It is estimated by the Department of Public Works that 4705 men will be employed on these projects for a year in addition to the vast amount of building materials and other services that will be required. Funds in the Governor's budget and tentative =,!lotnlent of money from the proceeds of the bond issue provide for buildings and construction at Pacific Colony near Pomona, Mendocino StS.te Hospital at Ukiah, Agnews State Hos- pital near San Jose, Napa State Hos- pital at Napa, Patton State Hospital near San Bernardino, Camarillo State Hospital near Ventura, Norwalk State Hospital at Norwalk, Stockton State Hospital at Stockton, Sonoma State Home at Eldridge, and a new prison in Southern California. ~--~-- : 0 : -----~- CATALINA ISLAND HAS SUMER PLAYGROUND The summer playground at the Higlf School is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, except Sunday.
