Noone, 11, pedaling towards them. Youthful ex- i Caution-. Bicycles At Large Summer is here and bicy- clists are suddenly out in force. Though there is instructions on safe bicycle riding in the schools and bike roadeos in the parks, somehow it seems not all riders are reached, says Sgt. John Mullen of the Police Traffic safety education divi- sion. And kids, being kids, are prone to forget a safety rule in the excitement of play. Considering the number of traffic accidents involving bicy- cles there are surprisingly few deaths, said one policeman. Last year three Chicago chil- dren were killed, in 1965 two, and 1964 one. But youngsters were injured in 895 of the bicycle acci- dents reported in 1966. Bicyclists are required by Il- linois traffic laws to abide by the same regulations as motor vehicles. Children under 11 are allowed to use residential side- walks. Some safety experts have advocated that bicyclists fol- low pedestrian rules, and ride facing oncoming traffic. But according to the National Safety council, where such rules have been followed there has been an increase in _.------g wneel Also importai bicycle accidents, and the Illi- hazards, policemen are told to brakeg and nois and Chicago codes are in stop them and give some on- and rpar reflectors Sgt. Geiald Doll. Austin district police officer who was shot to death March 29 Sponsored by the Austin Busi- ness council, the event will seek to raise enough money for a down payment on a home for the policeman's widow and her five children. Tickets for the benefit at S10 each are being sold by members of the ABC. In addi- tior. according to Jim Grant who was ABC president when the group initiated plans for the testimonial, tickets may be obtained it the door to- morrow evening. The benefit is scheduled to start at p.m. The Austin district station, under its community service di- rector Sgt. Art Ferando. is also selling tickets to policemen throughout the city. Sgt. Feran- do said that by Thursday ap- proximately 500 tickets will lave been purchased by fellow officers. The benefit comes some SVz months after Sgt. Doll was shot-gunned to death by Gary C. Ilorton when the officer curbed a car carrying Horton and Delia Ann Jones at Shake- speare and Cicero. Already wanted tor an armed robbery.'Horton leaped by the car and pulbd a shot gun from under his coat, firing point' hi'.A- Cvit However, before he died Sgt. Doll managed to get off six shots and the fleeing Hor- ton and Miss Jones. Patrol- man Redden, arriv- ing on the scene just seconds after the shooting, also emp- tied his gun at the two. Miss Jones was found badly wounded a short distance away and Horton's body, punctured] 'four times by bullets from. i Doll's and Redden's guns, was discov ered a couple of blocks 1 away. The police department's Award of Valor was presented to Redden and, posthumously, to Sgt. Doll recently in one tae final acts presided by out-, going police Supt. O. W. Wilson. I Although Horton was killed j after the shooting of Sgt Doll, i his accomplice, Miss Jones, has betn charged, under Illinois statutes, with the actual mur- der. Her trial is slated to start j in criminal court before Judge Delaney on Aug. 4. In addition to being accused of murder, Miss Jones will also face armed robbery and grand thrft auto charges. She and Horton were identified from photos as the pair who held up j a West Side grocery store.
