London, July 20. (By mall)
One lost tooth and one blackened
eye are the total war-time casualties
of tha SCO police-women who have
helped to release 'harness" Bobbies
for the trenches. The tooth was
punched out during a alight misun
derstanding with a lady prisoner.
Another minor difference of opinion
between arrester and , arrestee was
clftnfxed jBy'aai-unladyUka wallop in
the eye. - .a' '
'Cecil Chapman, a police official,
today explained ,that tha police
woman must have an unusual fund
of tact to make up for her lack of
brawn. One police-woman, he said,
was shocked by the hugging of a
young soldier and a girl in public.
She attempted an arrest but learn
ed that as the pair were engaged
they had a perfect right to borrow
and pay back kisses any time they
pleased." ' f
So the soldier bad - the police
woman arrested for interfering.
TO WHOM IT MAY COXCKRX
Thla Is to certify that I hare drlv
ea my Maxwell car from Wichita
Falls, Texas, through the Panhandle
country from there all through New
Mexico. Ariiona, California and Ore
gon, encountering all kinda of ter
rible roads, especially through New
Mexico and Ariiona, going from
Phoenix to Globe over the famous
Roosevelt dam, known aa being the
most hilly and worst roads the world
over. In behalf of tha Maxwell car.
I wish to state tha following: I have
beea driving different makes ot au
tomobiles for tha last nine years
and in all my experience I have
never aeen the equal ot the Maxwell.
From- the time I left Wichita Falls.
Texas, going over a course of 5,000
miles my totsl expense for repairs
was 90 cents tor a fan belt and the
fault Ilea with me as $ tightened It
up to much. My mileage during
this trip over these terrible roads
has been 25 H miles to the gallon.
and my oil is a minimum. In con
clusion I wish to state that tha com
pany I am representing as superintendent-manager,
namely Tha Na
tional Protective Agency, a company
operating 108 automobiles, after a
careful study in the economic alt
nation has discarded their Fords
and has bought Maxwells, as It was
shown at the director's meeting, to
do so meant to save money.
