laws during May and could have ar

was pointed out today by Captain
Charles D. armer. commander of the
patrol, in releasing the report of the
highway patrol for May. But of this
number, 10.812 were permitted to go
on their way with nothing more than
a warning or reprimand from the
patrolman.
A total of 962 arrests were made
during May. however, which is a lar
ger number than in any previous
month, while tickets were issued to
the other violators tnstructing them
to have certain defects, such as lights
or brakes, corrected within a given
length of time. These 962 arrests
brought in a total of $24,257, to the
State and counties, of which more
than $14,000 went to the county school
funds from fines and forfeitures.
"If we should tighten up and make
arrests for every offense, we could
produce enough cash in fines and for
feitures to pay a large share of the
school cost in the State,*’ Captain
Fanner said. "However, we are con
tinuing to adhere to the policy that
the primary duty of the patrol is to
enforce the highway laws and pro
tect life and property on the highway,
instead of trying to collect revenue
by making arrests, So we are making

we do not want to needlessly anta
