Then we happened to think of Sergeant Victor R Putnam of the Seattle police department. Today we can readily answer the question of our Rood friend. Sergeant Putnam it the beat man for aheriff King county could get. This suggestion is made voluntarily by The Star Serjeant Putnam will, no d<>ubt, be the most sur prised to learn of it. We have never talked it over with him So far as we know, it has never been sug gested to him before. We do not know if be has any ambitions along that line We do nut know if he will run. or even consider it Rut we DO know this: Sergeant Putnam's record in the police department is as clean as a whistle. He has "pep," and honesty, and determination When Chief Beckingham put Put nam in charge of the booze wrecking squad, Putnam asked only one thing. "IF I'M i.olM.
