This request ha3 been printed in pamphlet form and a number of . these pam phlets have been mailed to a large number of prominent citizens. The Police Association desires that these recommendations be carried through at the next meeting of the Indiana legislature and asks the citizens to help them. A few of the requests are given below. It is recommended that the pen alty for burglary be a term of from ten to twenty years in the peniten tiary -and disfranchisement and ren dered incapable of holding any pub lie, ofilce for any determinable per i oil. '."Tne law is modeled after the Ohio law, which regards every man's house as his castle. and' makes pun ishment for burglary very severe.

The punishment for this felony is fixed at imprisonment in the peni tentiary for not more than fourteen years, nor less than two years.
