Oakland Monthly Matches
Up bright and early Sunday morning, March 7th ready
for our first trek over the bridge to the Oakland range â€”
and what a day it was! These Oakland boys surely had
something to brag about and don't you think for a minute
they didn't! There were about 160 shooters, eighty million
women, seven hundred youngsters and forty-two dogs.
Never in all our visitants to pistol tournaments did we
see such a turnout of families â€” complete families. Mrs.
Don Nelson had a fine time as she brought over the baby's
play- pen and the youngster had a good day's outing in
the sun and mama didn't have to worry about the kid
wandering down to the zoo and climbing in with the hons
or tigers. Stuart Simms had his family over and was
teaching the baby to swipe .45 brass from the other
shooters â€” at least that's what he told but we can't believe
it. Yep, there were certainly many new shooters on the
line and we still are having a heck of a time trying to
match the various faces with all the new names. Vem
Clayton had his brother, Loren, from Redding, at the
match but Loren said he would "ruther" have his old
30-30 along and let Vern do all the handgunning.
Never saw so many cops in all our life â€” that is, cops
from Alameda. They swarmed all over the lot. Many
of the San Francisco police were too busy studying for the
sergeants exam to be held soon so skipped this match.
* Â« *
Lieutenants Veech and Anthony, from Fort Ord,
showed up on the scene with shooting boxes, the likes
of which haven't been seen on any shooting range. They
were as big as a foot locker, built like a fortress and
had gun space to carry eight handguns, a sub-machine
gun, two howitzers and a French .75. Holy Smoke, how
did these guys ever lug 'em around?
Walt Forrister, from San Mateo Junior College, was
shooting with his gun in one hand and a Spanish book
in the other and between strings was buried deep in
tamales and chili- peppers. Our guess is that the mid-
term exams must be just around the corner and Walt
didn't want to miss a shoot nor lose time studying.

That the boys over in Oakland have been busy during
the winter was evinced by all the benches on the lower
range being rebuilt, numbered and a neat paint job ap-
plied. It didn't help the shooters any as the scores were
just as terrible.
Speaking of terrible scores we might add that during
the firing of the timed fire string in the Camp Perry
match a lady deer started to run up the hill behind the
backstops and many a hunter in the crowd just naturally
raised his sights, followed the animal, missed a couple
of tens on the target and cursed himself for trying to
shoot deer out of season.
Hamilton Henshaw, also had mama and the baby out
Sunday, and we noted that his shooting box was all fixed
up with end ventilators. Couldn't figure why the vents
should be there unless they were to cool ofi^ those hot
rods after the rapid-fire strings.
* * *
Elliott Lipman didn't bring the family out with him
but only shot in the first two matches and then ducked
for home. He said it was his baby's birthday and he had
to be on hand for the celebration â€” or else!
Paul Jegmeier was at his first shoot and accordingly
placed in the Expert class. Paul was standing ne.xt to
us and not being used to the methods of competition we
decided to help him out with a few pointers but after
seeing our slow-fire string we asked him to help us.

Ed Preston, San Francisco Policecopper, was quite elated
with himself Sunday as he won his first medal in the
Expert division, a third place medal in the Camp Perry
Match. He borrowed a .45 cannon for that match and
discovered it had an 8-pound trigger pull. He managed
to get it off a couple of times hut his strength failed him
the last minute and he brought up the rear of the gang.
* * *
Did you ever stand behind the lines during the .45
match and think it was raining .45 empties? Then after
the match the mob starts looking for their empties and
occasionally obtaining a few that they know weren't
theirs. Our guess is that they figure someone else will
get someone else's and so in the long run it all comes
out even. Like heck, it does!
* * *
Skip Harris is a mighty man at home â€” or at least that's
what he tells us and this story will illustrate his might.
We saw Mrs. Harris on the firing line and couldn't be-
lieve our eyes as she never shot before. We buzzed Skip
who tells us that he is teaching the good woman to shoot
so they both can enjoy a day's outing together. Otherwise
Skip stays home and cleans house.
"Butch" Flocchini, the San Mateo Sheriff's right hand
man, was at his first shoot in over a year as he has been
giving a lot of time to the Boy Scout movement and is
getting a big drive out of it as well as giving the growing
generation the finer points of citizenship. Congratula-
tions, Butch, it's a swell job you're doing.

Top aggregate score went to that Berkeley shooting
Demon, Quentin Brooks, with a score of 876. Then
followed G. Elliott Murphy with an 858 and Ralph
Kline took third place with an 854. The last trigger was
jerked at 1:20 p. m. and final scores posted around 1:45

Monument in G. G. Park Honoring S. F. Only Canine Cop
(From Daily Pacific Builder I
M. F. Fitzpatrick tells the story of Officer Schultz in
the poem on this page. There isn't much more to add,
except that the people in the Haight, Ashbury and Sunset
districts still miss him.
Folks around there got to love the dog in the two years
he was a member of the Park station, Larrie M. Driscoll,
the officer who first found Schults. said. In fact, in a
fund to erect a suitable monument, they contributed sev-
eral hundred dollars, with the kids in the neighborhood
bringing in their nickels and dimes to the station.
Driscoll reported that "Schultz is buried between two
beautiful trees in front of the Park station. With the
money that was collected, a drinking fountain has been
erected for humans to quench their thirst; at the bottom
of the fountain there's a place for Schultz's dog pals to
get a drink of fresh, clear water."
A specially built bird bath is included, Driscoll said,
and the surroundings are beautifully landscaped with col-
ored concrete walks circling the fountain.
Telling of Schultz's police career, Driscoll said: "Schultz
immediately took over the station. He rode the rear
end of the patrol wagon â€” always liked to go on fast rides
in the radio car, especially when the boys found it neces-
sary to use the siren.
Patroled His Beat
"Every night for two years without a day off Schultz
patroled a beat for eight hours and sometimes worked a
double shift. He investigated back yards, alleys and
tradesmen's entrances for suspicious persons and knew he
was performing police duty.
"Three times Schultz assisted in the capture of burglars.
For this he was presented with a regulation seven-point
silver star on a special harness made for him as a present
from the boys at the Park station."
Police Chief Michael Mitchell dedicated the monument
to Officer Schultz April 2f.

One night when the darkness mantled the Park,
Through his headlights did Driscoll espy
A dog lying prostrate there on the road
Which was maimed by a car that went by.
Larry picked the dog up in a litter with care
And sent it away to the Pound.
His home we didn't know wither or where
For no clue to his owner was found.
We awaited with patience some word of his fate.
For we thought he most surely would die.
When all of a sudden one night at our gate
That same dog wc did sec there to lie.
We made no attempt to detain our new friend
But he stayed with us nevertheless.
And no teasing or coaxing that doggie could wend
From the home he had chosen to bless.
We bought him a harness all shining and new
And a star trimmed with filigree gold.
But a name for the doggie perplexed the whole crew
'Till our Chief did the puzzle unfold.
For then he was Captain out there at the Park,
Why he hit upon Schultz we don't know.
At first we treated it just as a lark.
But oh how that dog's fame did grow.
Now Schultz remembered the kindness he'd seen
From Larr>', his friend, that first night
And he stayed at his heel, now matter how mean
Was the weather abroad, or how bright.
But alas! Poor Schultz got some poisonous chuck.
And we took him forthwith to a Vet.
He'd sought out Larry in cranny and nook;
He was dying, but he didn't forget.
We laid him away 'neath the Sunset fog.
And we placed a plaque o'er his grave
To remind us of that faithful dog
And the foul cruel work of a Knave.

POLICE COMMUNICATION OFFICERS
Ray Meyers, President
A. R. TaggA'RT, SecretaryTreasurer
The regular monthly meeting of the Northern Califor-
nia Police Communication Officers' Association was held
on February 12, 1948, in Napa, Calif., at the Valley Inn.
Our host was Marvin Landers and Sheriff John Clauson of
Minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved
also bill for nineteen dollars and thirty-seven cents for a
new brief case for the secretary. Brower McMurphy, En-
gineering and Frequency Committe reported the requests
for clearances of frequncies:
Hawthorne, Nevada. Main Station frequency of 16M
MCS. Mobile frequency of 39,380 KCS. These frequen-
cies will enable the Hawthorne to co-ordinate their commu-
nication activities with adjacent Law Enforcement Agen-
cies in this area. Motion by Geo. Burton, seconded by Tom
City of Davis, Police Dept. Request shift of frequency
from .35.1 MCS to 37.02 MCS. This shift would allow
the City of Davis Police Dept. to coordinate their commu-
nication activities with the Solano County Sheriffs Office
and allow them to utilize the present Solano County Sher-
iff's Office Repeaters which is necessary for this area. The
City of Hillsborough requested a shift from their present
frequency of 33.22 MCS. because of interference from
Eastern Utilities which renders their mobile units to a point
of uselessness. They request a clearance on any frequency
above 3'). 00 MCS. McMurphy will monitor what remain-
ing channels we have left in an effort to clear some 30 MC.
frequency to alleviate their present difficulties. This inter-
ference has been very aggravated in this peninsula area
and every effort will be made to correct it. A solution will
be forthcoming at our next meeting. Chief Wisnom, of
Hillsborough and President of the Bay Counties Peace
Officers' Association is willing to accept a frequency in the
30 MC. band on a temporary basis pending the final de-
cision by the Federal Communications Commission on their
new allocation plan for this band. Monterey County Sher-
iff's Office requested a clearance in the 1^0 MC. band for
both Land and Mobile operation. On recommendation of
the Engineering Committee, I'll. 73 MCS. was proposed.
Motion by Bill Koch and seconded by Ralph Pence.
Solano County Sheriff's Office: Clearance for five 100
watt mobile units for the Fire Department ; same to utilize
the present main station sheriff's office for dispatching. Mo-
tion by George Burton, seconded by Edward Measchner.
(The mobile fire frequency of l'>4.07 MCS. was cleared.)
President Ray Meyers appointed the following com-
State: Bud Hossack and Stewart Naschke.

During luncheon President Meyers introduced Chief
W. J. Wisnom, of the Hillsborough Police Department,
who is President of the Bay Counties' Peace Officers' Asso-
ciation, which includes many of our bosses. Chief Wisnom
who is quite a radio technician in his own right spoke on
the activities of the organization which he heads and com-
mended the efforts of our Association for its contributions
to the battermcnt of Police Communications. Chief Wis-
nom then introduced Chief Earl Dierking, Vallejo Police
Department, Vice President of the Bay Counties' Peace
Officers' Ass(X-iation. Chief Dierking needs no introduc-
tion, being President Ray Meyers' boss and having spon-
sored many progressive ideas to better Police Communica-
tion in Northern California. These two men with their
experience as law enforcement executives and their techni-
cal knowledge have, can and will do much toward co-
ordinating and improving Police Communications in this
Chief Don Wcxid, San Ansclmo Police Department, was
next to speak. Chief Wcxid, a recruit in law enforcement
work, having been working at it for the past 36 years, and
a charter member of that Asstxiation gave us a brief his-
tory- of the problems of introducing radio communications
to law enforcement agencies during its infancy. Chief
Wo<x] finally rendered one of his technical masterpieces
which he generally saves for our regular technical discus-
All members present showed considerable interest and
I am sure that several system will show improvement after
this technical dissertation. Chief E. C. Riordan, Napa
Police Department, welcomed all members and guests and
introduced Jack Cinnamond, Mayor of the City of Napa.
POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL
Mayor Cinnamond gave us a brief history of the City of
Napa and went all out in his praise for the fine job Martin
Landers, Chief Radio Technician, has done for this area.
Next, was John Clauson, Jr., Sheriff of Napa County,
who has gained wide repute as a box specialist in this area.
Sheriff Clauson introduced his guest. Chief Deputy Wesly
Gardner. President Meyers introduced Commander Bob
Miller of the Pacific Gas 6? Electric Co. Bob feels that cer-
tain that certain utilities now classified under Industrial
Service with the Federal Communications Commission
should be classified with Public Safety Agencies due to the
nature of their work. This is a subject that all members of
APCO and its various chapters have been giving serious
thought during the past few months.
Rox Penlon introduced his guest, Jack Cunningham.
Rox insists on flying his own plane to all of our meetings
whether they be two miles from his office or JOO, and he is
consistently late in arriving at all of them. Rox, who is
the topflight Aerial Engineer in this end of the state, has
not learned that the shortest distance between two points
is a straight line. Director George Hippely, San Francisco
Police Department, introduced his guest, A. L. Lamb.
Stewart Naschke, Chairman of the Guest Speaker Com-
mittee came up with a grand surprise. Through the cour-
tesy of the General Electric Co. and Fred Dectkin Stewart
has as our guest speaker, Frank Barnes, Engineer, G. E. Co.
Frank needs no introduction after the excellent technical
talk he gave for this Association on Frequency Modula-
tion. His talk on Television was appreciated by all. A few
more speakers of Frank's caliber and we would have stand-
ing room only at our meetings.
The frequency clearance for Lake County was tabled
until next meeting due to all Agencies affected not being
Jim Lewis requested additional information on our 70
MC. point to point network. McMurphy stated the Board
has petitioned the Commission to rush action. Mt. Diablo
Repeater deal is beginning to show signs of progress. Our
State Teletype System is installing perforators in all sta-
tions toi speed up this vital form of communications.
President Meyers reported on the last W.A.A. Surplus
Deal. Ray has been very active and well informed on this
phase of activities.
McMurphy read the last report of the R.T.P.B. from
George Burton spoke on the new classification regarding
emergency services as set up by the F.C.C.
Once again the all-important subject of changing our
name and amending our Charter to include other services
under Public Safety was opened for discussion. At the
National Conference in Los Angeles this subject was given
number one place on the agenda for consideration and
Your secretary was directed to obtain all information
possible from APCO regarding this subject. Unfortunately,
Art Sowle, President of APCO was unable to attend this
meeting. Art has been working hard on this problem and
we hope he will be able to give us some additional informa-
tion at our'next meeting.
The following commercial members spoke on their prod-
ucts and conditions in general related to their activities.
Herb. Watson (Link) ; Sam Combs (RCA) ; Rox Penlon
(Aerial Eng.) ; Clyde Davenport (Leece-Neville) ; Fred
Deetkin (GE) ; Bill Kellog (Motorola) ; A. L. Lamb (Joes.
Pierson & Inc.) ; Fred Dine (F. E. Dine Co.) Radio Mfgr.
It certainly as gratifying to see so many law enforcement
and administrative officials attend our meetings. Their
keen interest in our problem which in the final analysis is
their responsibility has made it possible for the members of
this Association to install and maintain some of the finest
Communication Systems in the country.
The next meeting will be held in Sacramento, Calif.
The host will be Stewart Naschke, CHP.

OCEANSIDE-SAN DIEGO COUNTY
Mav, J 948
Oceanside, San Diego County, is one of the nicest spots
on the coast Hne of California, and a lot of people coming
down from Los Angeles, 90 miles to the north or coming
from San Diego, 28 miles to the south, with no intent
to pause at this historic and picturesque little coast city,
stop over and many of them remain for days. It is
stopping for, for Oceanside offers many attractions, as
Chief Guy B. Woodward
Taken White in the Army.
this writer so well knows, as he spent many happy days
there when he lived in San Bernardino nearly 40 years
ago. Oceanside has a most equitable climate; ocean fishing
is unsurpassed, and the city has erected a 1900 foot
pleasure pier where anglers can cast their lines, and from
which fishing boats take men and women on successful
trips where various species of fish arc brought to hook;
its homes are all well kept and surrounded by gardens,
for here all fruits, flowers and shrubbery thrive; and the
expansive, clean beach draws thousands of bathers, and
Oceanside is noted as one of the safest surfs of the coast.
But besides these attractions Oceanside is noted for its
proximity to Mission San Luis Rey, four miles to the
East, and which was erected by the Franciscan Fathers
in 1798 and after being almost destroyed in the middle
of last century is today splendidly rebuilt, and is a show
place for all tourists. It is now used to house many valu-
able historical relics of the early days of the Mission
Fathers. In the yards, surrounded by the big buildings
created by the Indians who hewed the lumber and
brought it from Pala mountains 20 miles away, is the
first pepper tree planted in this part of the world. It is
now over 110 years old.
There, too, is Camp Pendleton, which during the war
turned out thousands of Marines who received their
training at this great Mexican Grant, known formerly as
Rancho St. Margarita, and dedicated in 1942 by the
President of the United States as a permanent training
station for the Leathernecks. The Camp comprises
152,000 acres and in its expanses has some of the most
beautiful scenery to be found anywhere on this earth.
It is now known as the home of the Third Marine Brigade
and also of the Home Training and Replacement Com-
mand, and several other enlisted men's schools also call
it their headquarters. On an attractive lake the Naval
hospital is situated, and during the war 2000 beds were
kept fully occupied by injured Marines.
Within an hour and a half drive Palomar Observatory,
with the Worlds largest telescope, can be reached, and
while that great instrument is not yet completely in-
stalled, the beautiful observatory is well worth a trip to see.
