YOU CAN BE SURE IF IT’S
Blair Student so Visit
Germany on Scholarship
Jean Corey, a junior student
at Montgomery Blair High
School, has been awarded a
: scholarship by the American Field
i Services to participate in the
i European > American exchange
program this summer,
i The Silver Spring student will
| spend six weeks in the home of
I Marianne Kalb in Bamberg,
j Germany. During this time she
| will engage in school, family and
community activities,
j The American Field Service
offers summer scholarships an
i nually to high school students
! between the ages of 16 and 18
| on the basis of their adapability,
open-mindedness and eagerness
| to learn.
Another Blair student, Martha
Bicking, last year lived with a
i German family in the British
I sector of Berlin.
Budget Requests Fill
Police Force Needs
For Crime Fighting
Dreams of police officials for
a rounded, efficient force of men
to comabt crime in the District
will be realized if Congress ap
proves the President’s supple
mental budget requests.
President Eisenhower has asked'
for $731,000 to bring the depart
ment to full strength and to pro
vide for civilian school crossing
guards.
The latter item, calling for
$220,000, would take a big load
off police work. For example, in
the 9th Precinct, there are 32
schools that must be patrolled
during the morning and evening
hours.
Elimination of the necessity
for patrolling school crossings
during daytime hours would
make more men available for
duty during the crime-infested
evenings.
If approved, the budget would
mean the Police Department
could add 206 men to its present
force. Many of these would go on
foot patrol, which Police Chief
Robert V. Murray believes is the
most important aspect of police
work.
The extra men also would be
used to fill in gaps existing in
the Juvenile Squad and in the
Detective Bureau. The Juvenile
Squad has been operating with
five men fewer than normal, and
the Detective Bureau, with 16
fewer.
The Detective Bureau has been
filling in some of its vacancies
with precinct detectives and with
privates acting as plainclothes
men.
Month of Fasting
Opens for Moslems
Moslems throughout the world
will today observe the opening
of Ramadan, their month of
fasting and supplication.
During Ramadan, ninth
month of the Arabic calendar,
Moslems abstain daily from eat
ing, drinking and smoking from
dawn to sunset. The month,
during which period the holy
Koran was revealed to the Pro
phet Mohammed, has 30 days
this year.
Many verses in the Koran cali
on Moslems to fast during
Ramadan. A typical verse reads,
“All you who believe, fasting is
prescribed to you as it was pre
scribed to those before you, so
that you may learn piety and
self-restraint.”
There are about 1,000 Moslems
in Washington and more than
500 million throughout the
world.
