active charge, being of a committee of 40 looking after
the affairs of the center.
The other members of the active staff with Green are
Howard Walter, past commander of the American Legion;
Joseph Baker, advisor of the High Schools; Harry Kuntz,
chairman of the City Recreation Commission, and Leo
Bloom, of the Central Labor Council.
The citizens of San Mateo raised $5000 to equip the
center, and Al Randall for the Building Trade Council
has donated $250, to be used in monthly payments for
the laundry. The boys use a lot of towels.
The boys are given expert training in the use of firearms
and taught the art of shooting with pistol and rifle under
A well equipped hobby room is one of the interesting
features of the center, and experts instruct the boys in
perfecting their proficiency in their favorite hobby.
A coca-cola machine is present and gets a big play, the
money obtained from this beverage is banked for the
use of the club.
There are sufficient showers with plenty of free towels
for the boys, and they get a lot of action during the
nights and days.
The members of the Boys Club has been formed into an
auxiliary Police club to participate in any emergency, help
supervise parades and such events.
The boys have a monthly business meeting, have elected
their own officers and are getting swell schooling in ad-
ministration as well as a whale of a lot of fun out of this
well supervised headquarters.
In a portion of the garage a place has been set aside and
big hooks installed for the boys to hang their bicycles on
while they are enjoying the center.

"Up to now, our dealings with boys have been limited
to "negative" meetings â€” when they get into trouble. We

Chief O'Brien thinks the new recreation center is the
only one of its kind in the country'. Others, while possibly
working in conjunction with police departments, are sepa-
rate physical establishments, and often are taken over by
other groups â€” which is fine, the chief points out, but not
the idea he's hammering home.
"Disassociation from the police station ruins the whole
point," he says. "We want the hoys to see us, and we
want to see them. Right now, there's an almost total lack
of understanding, and it's ver\' expensive to the com-
Well, there's no doubt that his ideas have caught on
wnth the youths of San Mateo. You ought to see how the
place is jammed night and day. No doubt that it's much
better to have the boys there, than out on the streets

into big headaches for the Police Department and the
people of the community' as well.
THE KILROY GANG
I Coiitnmed from page li I
A niimber of bizarre features came to light as Lieut.
Hatch and his fellow officers pressed hot on the trail of
the wanted members of the gang with evidence piling up
For instance the Martinez sheriff's office had been alerted
to pick two of the wanted men. A phone call came in from
"We've got three men in custody. Think they're the
ones you want."
Lieutenant Hatch and Inspectors Bogle, Genovesino,
Valetto, rushed to Martinez. The prisoners were not mem-
bers of the Kilroy Gang but were wanted for kidnapping,
robber>- and auto theft by the Oakland police.
Then to the amazement of police they found one of the
much-wanted men â€” Eugene Kell in the count>' jail, serving
a 90-day sentence for a lewd telephone conversation.
Meanwhile, still seeking 5 more suspects, Lieutenant
Hatch, paid this tribute to the daily press:
"Details of investigation to date released to press. Press
reporters had previously withheld all information they had
accumulated in this regard and had cooperated with this
department to the utmost. They had been informed fully
of the progress of this investigation."
This in a daily report to Chief Tracy and Captain of
Inspectors Bill Barkis.
The trail of the Kilroy gang led to Seattle where Donal

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL
Baker and Mark Icanberry were identified as purchasers of
an acetylene torch on July 22, 1947 and used by the gang
in many subsequent safe-cracking jobs.
In the home of the father of one of the wanted men,
Ivan Campbell, alias Slusser, way up in Bellingham, Wash-
ington, was found loot from a Chico, California, laundry
â€” shirts, and other wearing apparel. A short time later the
suspect Campbell was arrested in Bellingham. The Kilroy
gang man made an ineffectual effort to obtain his release on
habeas corpus while awaiting arrival of Oakland officers
with extradition papers.
Meantime the Kilroy Gang Leader Baker had tried to
get Gene Kell to make a clean confession of all the crimes
he was involved in but Kell remained mute. Campbell on
his return to Oakland joined Baker in "working on" Kell
with no results but subsequently he did confess fully con-
cerning his participation in the gang's activities up and
down the coast.
Last of the gang to be arrested was William Burchell
who was picked up in Modesto.
In between the start of the investigation a novice in
burglary a youngster Lloyd Ricketts, was picked up and
confessed to participation in an Oakland burglary and
three in Chico with members of the Kilroy Gang.
Many Arrested, Questioned
During the months that Lieut. Hatch and his fellow
members of the Oakland Police Department were running
down clues of the fantastic Kilroy gang scores of mothers,
wives, sisters, brothers, friends, sweethearts of the "Kilroy"
crowd were gathered into police headquarters.
From some of the women taken into custody came
bizarre stories of "all night parties" mostly in Donal
Baker's home in Berkeley.
Strange orgies took place there.
Into the picture came the United States Postal depart-
ment centered about an Oakland drug store robbery in
which money orders and stamps were stolen. But postal
inspectors, checking the thorough work of the Oakland
police department said: "You prosecute, you've got every-
thing needed. The postal folks arc not interested in prose-
One of those jailed, William Purcell, was discovered to
be on probation from the Federal Court in San Francisco
for the theft of a government tug.
Varied Loot Recovered
Search of their homes and automobiles uncovered a
truckload and more of stolen articles that the Kilroy Gang
Numerous expensive console radios, household furniture,
clothes, were recovered from relatives and friends who had
either knowingly or willingly purchased the articles from
Baker and other members of the gang.
One friend of Baker's told the police as they moved out a
stolen radio said :
"Gee, I told my husband that when he paid only $200
for it, there was something funny and I'd bet we would

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL
An entire arsenal of revolvers, pistols, rifles, machine
guns -were gathered in as Lieutenant Hatch and his men
rounded up the gang, one by one.
In Baker's car for example were found :
9 boxes of radio equipment; pair of brown boots; clip of
4'i-cahber shells; plumb chisel; air pilot's flight record
book; aircraft log book; U. S. Navy aviation engine log
book; pair of green pants; pair of brown corduroys; black
and white woolen jacket; a two-tone sports jacket; a leather
jacket with cowhide covering; a sheath containing 2 short'
Jewelry gifts to girl friends, wives and relatives, all
stolen were also recovered.
The fact that only one auto theft was charged against
the Kilroy Gang is accounted for by the fact that the lads,
from their accumulated cash rewards from safe cracking
jobs, robberies, and burglaries, bought their own cars,
registered them in their own names or those of close rela-
A summary of the individual activities of each member
of the gang forms one of the most interesting parts of the
Oakland police records.
"Give Yourself Up, Son"
Once during the intense investigation a frantic Oakland
mother, one of whose two sons, was involved in the
Kilroy Gang activities sent out a nation-wide appeal:
"Give yourself up, son. Give yourself up before you
Teletype, radio, telephone, airplane, automobile, rail-
road â€” all these agencies produced by the genius of man â€”
were use in rapid succession by the alert Oakland police
officers and their fellows in widely separated points.
For days Oakland officers combed the Lake Tahoe
resorts and the Reno gamblmg houses.
For days they were led to bay waters, reservoir waters,
lakes and ravines by members of the gang who disclosed
spots where they had dumped the rifled safes.
A safe from Van Nuys, California, was recovered in
a canyon three miles south of the San Pablo dam in
Contra Costo County.
From the waters of Lake Temescal, an Oakland swim-
ming and public play center, another safe and other loot
were fished out by the police.
Looted strong boxes were recovered from sewer outlets
in Berkeley, Oakland and other Eastbay points.
Tried, Convicted, Sentenced
So we come to the end of the story which if written
in full would fill a volume of exciting incidents, up and
down the Pacific Coast. The dramatic personae of the
Kilroy Gang, all of whom are serving time in state or
county jail with one exception of a parole are :
Six-foot-six Donal Garvey Baker, 26 years old, ex-
paratrooper, gang leader, the Kilroy of the Kilroy gang,
who confessed but stood mute on a prior conviction.
Ivan George Campbell, 26 years old, mute on two priors.
Mark Icanberry, 29, mute on one prior.
Eugene Kell, 32, oldest of the Kilroy Gang, admitted
two prior convictions and in custody at the time the op-
erations of the sensational series of crimes were revealed.
Leo Plunkett, 25, with no prior record.
William Burchell, 24, who pleaded not guilty, but was
convicted just the same.
Lloyd Ricketts, 24, the only one of the gang given
"One of the finest bits of police work in Oakland's
history," adds Chief of Police Bob Tracy in writmg finis

main expert is nationally known broke in, on invitation,
to give the assemblage some high class entertainment in
sleight of hand tricks and a fast line of witty chatter.
Professor F. A. Matsuyma instructor in Yuwara was
presented to the audience by Deputy Sheriff Greening
who recited that the Professor was interned with all Jap-
anese during the late war, and had to give up his instruc-
tion of this method of self protection. Professor Matsu-
yama had four sons in the United States Service and you
have Deputy Greening's word for it that they served this
The Professor gave some demonstrations of a new
stunt he has invented and the lads who subjected them-
selves as guinea pigs will tell you he sure has something to
handle an obstreperous tough guy.
â€¢ Carl Holton director of the California Youth Authority
was the speaker for the occasion.
He gave a short but highly interesting address on this
most important agency. He told of the growing number
of juveniles who are running afoul of the law and the
efforts of his branch of the state government to try and
steer the youths back into the right paths and keep them
from experienced and hardened criminals.
He said from the group of youthful offenders come
the most dangerous criminals. He pointed out that large
departments should have special bureaus but that there
departments like the smaller ones should impress on all
officers in their towns and cities the necessity of making
this looking after juveniles an important part of their
He said law enforcement agencies should not wander
into recreational activities of the youths on a wholesale
scale, they should give encouragement to various agencies
that furnish this endeavor, but it was their job to get the
boy or girl who breaks the laws and find out why, if
He declared there was some interference by other agen-
cies with police departments, and while these agencies
meant well they were apt to do much harm.
There is much difference in the handling of a boy 17
and one 9 years of age, he stated and the Youth Authority
aims to separate the offenders who come under their
authority in the matter of age as well as the seriousness
of their offense and their reputation for being "toughies."
Every effort is made to keep boys from penal institutions
