C.. Dm. ;.--a Uonai system of identifies? ./ n Is be ln« urged by fingerprint eaperrs. Ac cording to the propoeed 1^1 three ■ets of the flngerprlnu of -.«ch per son in this country over S rears of age would be taken. One m'. would be filed at a national bureau *f iden tification at Washington. rh< sec ond copy would go to a kureiu at the capital of the State in whica the individual lived. And the tsira copy would be filed with local oCalais of his city or county. With this system, it is claimed, pussies of identity would be reduced to a minimum. Flngerprlnu can now be so completely classified rad filed that when a pattern is preflated for identification file experts can quickly ascertain whether or not the same print is in their collMtion. Thus, suppoM a man suffering from aphasia were found wandering about the streets of a southern city. People are singularly careless about carrying marks of identification, and it might easily happen that a Chicago shop label to a hat would bt the only clue to his Identity. The man’s fingerprints would be taken and compared with prints of the same type in the local city file. If he were not found there the Chicago bureau of identification would be asked to compare his prints witk sim ilar exhibits in their file. II lie were not among the residents of Chicago the national bureau would search its records. Once the man was Identified hla next of kin, as named on its fing erprint card, would be notified By a similar process the majority of unidentified dead could be re turned to their families, we ore told. Detectives say that every year 40,000 unidentified dead are burled in the potter's fields in this country. More than 100,000 women are reported missing each year, while kidr-appeu and lost children and mlsnlng men constitute a serious probleic ■ for ev ery community. An identification bureau, of course, will not make it much easier to lo cate a person who has disappeared out of his normal environment, leav ing no trace. But every tueh per son who turns up unldenti:led at a police headquarters or houpxtal or morgue can be almost surely traced through a national fingerprint sys tem. *. Haakte and institutions of his country make it almost necessary for a resident to carry some sort of credentials, and tke fingerprint has become a stand ard of identification there. If the system is ever introduced Into the United States it will probab ly have to be on a more definite basis. To start the system, fingerprints would have to be taken Jnst as the census is. After that, each year children attaining • years could be finger-printed on a fixed date. PATTERNS NEVER CHANGE Mr. Bennett says that this age lim it is not set because of any change in prints due to growth. An individual's fingerprint patterns do not change from birth to death, except to be come larger. A baby 4 weeks old can be finger-printed, Mr. Bennett explains, though it la difficult to keep the fingers uncurled sufficiently to mkMe a clear print, and the ridges are so fine that they are not easy to analyze. For a permanent record, therefore, it is considered advisable to wait until the sixth year. Back print record placed on file In national. State and local bureaus would show the name and address and next of kin of the individ ual. It he changed his. address, or if the next of kin died or left the country, the local bureau would ex pect to be notified of chauges to be made on the three recordn. The ef ficiency of the system would thus de pend to some extent on the co-oper ation of the public in ’ keeping the record correct. me argument naa Been presented that such a system would be expen sive and that cities would not regu larly go to the trouble of of identi fying the human mysteries and noti fying the proper friends or relatives.1 Mr. Bennett says that cities al ready go to a great deal of trouble and expense in such cases, and that; municipal authorities woild welcome the establishment of a syitem to help them, especially since It would mean a saving in other directions. To keep a man suffering from paralysis in the city hospital until friends claim him ot his people can be found is expen sive. To bury a mysterious body in the potter's field costs $16 or $S0. To send a telegram to a man’s next of kin in a near-by city would cost per haps less than a dollar ond the city would be glad to be relieved of its responsibility so readily. Cities do not often dispose of a human mys tery carelessly, because it is always to their advantage to solve the pus zle. In burying an unidentified body a city might be burying a trouble some criminal or a missing heir, and .he search for that person might go >n needlessly for years. Yet in spite of investigations and widely adver tised inquiries 40,000 such bodies are buried each year. Identifying persons who are for some reason unable to prove who they are is the most obvious use of the proposed fingerprint bureau. Oth er uses would undoubtedly be found once the system was established. An impostor would find it difficult to keep up his bluff once he was sus pected. To refuse to show official fingerprint proof of his identity would be to invite suspicion, and sooner or later his prints would be obtained by some ruse and checked up officially. Claimants for the fortunes of long missing heirs could be made to prove their claims by the fingerprint rec ords. Insurance cases could be set tled by reference to the official files. That is, for instance, it an insured man were killed in an accident, and his widow were put to the necessity of proving that the dead man was in deed her husband in order to draw his Insurance, fingerprints might be .utilised. Even in cum or drowning and death caused by barns, where a body Is most difficult to identify finger prints can often be of grMt assist ance. Persons who are overtaken by violent death are apt to clendh the hands, and the skin on the finger tips is thus protected. Flngorpihu have played an Important part ns number of cases of this soit whan they could be compared with urlsting fingerprint records. This hu been possible when the victim turned out to have been a criminal, previously fingerprinted by a police department, or when he had been in the army or navy. When in such a cue no ’record can be found, the fingerprint clues on a body are useless. PROTECTION TO EVERY CITIZEN According to H. W. Bennett, fing erprint expert of this city, every cit izen should realize that a complete national fingerprinting system would be a valuable protection to him. When real need to identify sons one or to prove personal Identin arise, the situation is generally ur<t< at, and no one kn <ws when such . -isrgen cy may oc.ur in his own Un fortunately LUly a few classes 'f peo ple—detectives, bankers, in. trance men and police officials, principally— appreciate the Importance of conclu sive identification. It is not e.isy to stir up enthuslum among the public, Mr. Bennett says, because th- aver age citizen is not personally interest ed until he hu a specific ntud for Identification. Another difficulty in a rout mg in terest in the proposed bureau is tl-at taking fingerprints hu been almoin, exclusively associated with crime. The law-abiding individual is Apt t> be reluctant, therefore, to unuertP the process. For these res tons it may be some time before the bureau becomes a fact. Bills for its estab lishment are sidetracked because there is no general demand for the project. Mr. Bennett explains that th* idea of a national system of flnget print ing Is not new. France, like the United StatM, has bun conslu irir.g i the plan, and Argentina alread ' his a working system, though not :|ulte so complete u that proposed f< r th's country. Every citizen liable to mlllta/ ser vice In Argentina is fingerprinted at the age of 1«. Women are not com pelled to have their prints taken.- but many do so for their own protection and convenience.
