FROM CHIEF GLEASON
Major Funkhouser, second deputy,
was squelched by Chief Gleason yes
terday and hereafter will be com
pelled to do the clerical work which
was made his work by the ordinance
creating the job of second deputy,
rather than play policeman, which he
loves so dearly -to do.
Chief (jleason, after pondering
over the dress parade tactics of the
alphabetical major, has decided that
in his present capacity he is of ab
solutely no use ta the police force,
except possibly for ornamental pur
poses. So Gleason has stuck a quill
pen in the major's mitt with instruc
tions to get "busy.
Funkhouser has been informed
that he js not' a regular policeman,
but merely an efficiency dork and in
vestigator, and that hereafter his
crew, led by Inspectorof "Morals"
Dannenberg and "Spy" Ackerman,
the professional stool pigeon, are
stripped of the power to batter down
doors and make arrests.
The policewomen have also been
takenfrom Funkhouser's command
and assigned to stations. The chief
discovered that Funkhouser was
sending the women to a civilian, Ger
trude Howe Britton, for instructions.
