available, should it be required, all
level and situated in a section where
the climatic conditions have been estab-



lished by Federal survey as one of
three most ideal for a dirigible base in
the North American continent.

In his resolution, and which was
referred to the Airport Committee, Su-
pervisor Kent called attention to the
strides being made in the use of dirig-
ibles for commercial purposes and he
placed stress on the statement San
Francisco "is the most logical terminal
for a dirigible base, being the metro-
politan port of the Pacific Coast."'



VETERAN OFFICER RETIRED



^T HIS request, Officer W. T.
Hooper was retired from active
duty as a Patrol Officer of the San
Francisco Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals, October 1,
1929, by the Board of Trustees in ap-
preciation of his long years of service
with the Society.

Mr. Hooper was horn in Newport,
Kentucky, June 4, 1839. On April 27.
1878, he was appointed a member of
the San Francisco Police Department
and detailed with the San Francisco
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals, continuing with the So-
ciety up to the present time, with the
exception of five years as patrol officer.
He was retired from the Police De-
partment, April 6, 1914.

Officer Hooper made his first arrest
of cruelty to animals September 24.
1878, and during the first twenty years
of his service arrested more than 3000



offenders. He has seen many changes
improving the conditions of animals in
his time, the result of educating the
public in the rights of animals through
the effort of Humane Societies.

Contrast the average of 150 prose-
cutions a year, forty years ago, to the
annual report of the Society for 1928,
when but nine prosecutions were
made. The fact that officers do not
have to spend half of their time in
court prosecuting offenders gives them
more time to make inspections, giving
relief, etc., which has increased the
number of investigations over ten
times that of the early years of the
Societv's existence.



NORMAN D. COOK DIES
SUDDENLY



Norman D. Cook, Assistant District
Attorney and for the last twenty years
a practicing lawyer in San Francisco,



was stricken with a heart attack while
swimming in the tank at the Union
League Club, September 18, and died
before medical assistance could be
summoned. Mr. Cook, who was 49,
had been in ill health for some time,
although he was able to carry on his
duties as Assistant District Attorney.
At the close of ofiice on the day he was
stricken, Mr. Cook went to the club
for a plunge. He was demonstrating
how long he could stay under water
when he collapsed.

Mr. Cook was born in Hollister, No-
vember 22. 1880, and received his
early education in the schools of that
city. He put himself through the San
I'Vancisco lUisiness College, the Mer-
rill & Miller College of Shorthand and
Tarr's School of Expert Accounting.
He later attended the Kent Law
School and was admitted to the bar
April 29, 1907, and began the practice
of law in San Francisco.

THE MUNICIPAL RECORD



Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL RECORD



THE change in name of this publication
from The Municipal Employee to the
Sax Fraxcisco Muxicipal Record, effective
with this issue, is a step of great historical inter-
est to all citizens of San Francisco. Acting upon
the advice and insistence of municipal and
county officials and public-spirited citizens
whose personal histories are interwoven glori-
ously with that of their cit}', we have revived
the name of the official publication which for
many years gave good and faithful service to
San Francisco.

The Municipal Employee was established
to promote the interests of the many thousands
of employees of San Francisco. It soon became
apparent, however, that a broader field must be
included. From all over the United States came
requests for subscriptions from people who
could find no other record of the progress of our
city. Public libraries of the entire country have
placed the publication upon the shelves of the
public reading rooms, while national municipal
magazines have used its articles without stint to
