BUREAU OF TRAFFIC ENGINEER AND
ADMINISTRATION DIRECTOR OF
TRAFFIC AND CHIEF OF
Approved under Provisions of Amendment "M"
I'he Police Commissioners and the Chief of Police,
feeling that our San Francisco traffic problem needs con-
tinuous and increasing personal, scientific attention, had
placed on the November ballot Amendment "M," calling
for a Bureau of Traffic Engineering and a Director of
Traffic from the Police Department â€” and abolishing the
Street Traffic Advisory Board.
The amendment also created a Chief of Inspectors
position and a Captain of Inspectors position in the
Inspectors Bureau, at salaries of $8,940.00 and $6,540.00
To assist the director of traffic an engineer shall be
assigned by the chief administrative officer from the office
of the city engineer to the bureau of traffic engineering
and administration and such other personnel as may be
Under the provisions of Amendment "M" the power
and duties of the traffic director shall not modify to any
extent the present powers and duties of any department
or office, but shall be, first for the purpose of assisting
the police commission in its regulation of traffic, and,
secondly, for the purpose of recommendation only, to
other departments or offices of matters within their juris-
diction, but affecting to any extent the regulation of traffic.

BURGLARS GET FAST ACTION FROM
SAN FRANCISCO POLICE OFFICERS
Crooks don't have any the best of percentages when
they undertake a job in any city in California these days.
Particularly is this true in San Francisco. One night last
month when Miss Mildred Stoneson, the ll-year-old
daughter of Ellis Stoneson, one of the better building
contractors of the city, returned to her home at 30 Stone-
crest Drive she found it had been ransacked, $2000 in
jewelry and clothing and big, expensive sedan were
She notified the police and radio messages went out
to all prowl cars. Among the officers of one of these
cars were Policemen Ernest Raabe and Garrett Scanlon.
They were dashing to the scene of the burglary when
their attention was drawn to a big sedan with two char-
acters in it beating out Ocean Avenue. The officers saw
that the two characters, by their dress, did not fit into
such a car so they gave chase.
The suspects tried to get away, but their attempt was
doomed to failure when they hit a light pole. One of the
men, who later gave the name of Talmadge Jones, 28,
climbed out of the car with a drawn gun. He decided
not to use it when he found himself looking into two
.38 revolvers in the hands of their pursuers. He was
handcuffed and the other occupant who had no gun, but
one was found in the car, submitted to arrest without
any hesitancy, he was Frank Siragusa, 2 1 .
The stolen jewelry and clothes were in the ca'r and
were turned over to the owners, who were grateful indeed
for the fast work of the members of the SFPD.
250 SFPD MEMBERS DONATE BLOOD
TO BLOOD BANK
You can always depend on members of the San Fran-
cisco Police Department to respond to any call for aid,
whether it is moving in on a crime, helping a distressed
family, rescuing people from various dangers and a hun-
dred other things they may find themselves facing.
Last month 250 members of the SFPD in one day vol-
untarily donated blood to the Irwin Memorial Blood Bank.
More followed this first 250. Policemen know all too well
what somebody's blood may mean to a stricken man,
woman or child, and they give their blood willingly.

NATIONAL MEET I.A.C.P. IN NEW YORK
The annual convention of the International Association
of Chiefs of Police met in New York City from October
13 to 17. It was one of the largest attended sessions of
the Association in its more than half century existence.
Over 1500 registered for the convention. There were
23 delegates from California. The Association now has
2 300 members.
Former Chief Charles W. Dullea presided at the four
The programs presented at the twice-a-day meetings
were as always of top importance to police chiefs and
the speakers were all men of national repute in their
respective lines of law enforcement.
Considerable attention was given to civilian defense
plans, which have been taking a lot of time by various
law enforcement oiEcials throughout the United States,
one of them being Chief John D. Holstrom of Berkeley.
The final plans adopted by the committee have been sub-
mitted to Secretary of Defense Forrestall.
Juvenile delinquency had a prominent place in the dis-
cussions of the Convention.
Radio, which has become a matter of considerable per-
plexities of law enforcement also was put on high priority
for the attention of all law agencies.
The new president of the Association is Homer Gar-
rison, Jr., Director of the Department of Public Safety,
Chief C. B. Horrall of Los Angeles was moved up to
the fifth vice presidency.
The next convention will be held in Dallas, Texas.
A motorist who is otherwise completely law-abiding
does not realize that when he climbs into the driver's seat
of an automobile he often becomes a criminal law-breaker.
His criminal driving, points out the National Automobile
Club, is marked by wanton speeding by schools, play-
grounds, and business districts, and may someday acci-
dentally kill an innocent person. "Slow" signs are placed
in these districts for the purpose of safety. They arc
not to be ignored.
