   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                10 The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Thurs., Oct. 10. 1971 Big George! Computerized Crime Files Stir False Arrest Fears "Listen. C hipsaddlc, ytnfic truing to be talc just once loo often and we'll yet another By Margaret (irnlry WASHINGTON (AC) Sup- [lose you're strolling along a deserted street when gunfire erupts in a nearby liquor store. As you linger watching, police discover the proprietor wound- ed and the cash register emp- tied. The gunman hasn't stayed around. But you have, and the police are suspicious. In seconds, a minicomputer in the patrol car ticks off your criminal record: arrested for armed robbery last year. What the eompuler doesn't say is lhat the charge was dis- missed after the real robber confessed. Despite protests, you're arrested on the strength of what officers believe lo be your past criminal record. False Arrest A new survey by the General Accounting Office suggests that false arrest could occur more and more often as police around the nation turn to com- crime files Senator Ervin (D-.YC.) who already has introduced legisla- tion to limit the use of criminal records, is drafting still for Better Health another restriction to prevent such occurrences. in said recently, "A suspect with his hands against the patrol car will not be able to convince that officer that an arrest record is inaccurate or incomplete and lhal he was exonerated (or the arrest and should not be arresled." ill a statement entered in the Congressional Itecord, Krvin warned lhat .increasing com- puterization of criminal records, known as rap sheets, "could enormously magnify the risk of false arrest because of instantaneous use u! in- complete or inaccurate or irrelevant past arrest informa- tion." Handled Manually The GAO study, commis- sioned by Krvin's constilu- lional rights subcommittee, noted the bulk of police requests for criminal records from the FBI and from slate files slill arc handled manually.

South was not a believer in Santa Claus and wanted to give himself the best possible play for 12 tricks. He could count 11 winners and decided to develop a squeeze in case either op- ponent had both red suits stopped. He ducked the first trick. This maneuver is known as rectifying the count. South still had his 11 sure winners. He was trying for 11 After lhat start it was all over for the defense.

Firm Reports Hitler Statues Selling Well NORTHAMPTON, England (UPI) A British company reports a thriving business in manufacturing miniature sta- tues of dictator Adolf Hitler and shipping them to West Germany. One hundred pewter statues of the dictator dressed in Ger- man military garb have been sold. "The Germans seem lo like our iatesl model. He looks very mean and that's how they prefer to remember him." manager Brian Marlow said. "Now we are considering making Mussolinis for the Italian market." he said. By Dr. S. L. Andelman The main objective of this column is to teacil you about health care so you can lake steps to prevent and stop (linuilsc. Cancer is one of the most heartbreaking diseases around. We can't yet prevent it. but we can stop il if it's caught in lime. And if you learn nothing else from this column, please memorixe the seven warning signs of cancer. They arc: Change in bowel or bladder habits unusual bleeding or discharge a sore that doesn't heal thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere indigestion or difficulty in swallowing obvious change in wart or mole nagging cough or hoarseness Women should also report any bleeding between periods or after menopause lo (heir doctor and should examine llieir breasts after each period.

In addition, have a regular thorough medical exam. The best way lo catch cancer early is to make a yearly appointment fur a health checkup and keep it. Let your doctor examine vou from Dr. Andelman head to loe and lake any tests he thinks necessary. Be sure he examines Hie recluni and lower bowel and lines a pelvic exam if you're a woman.

Most cancers begin in one spot and that's when they're easiest lo cure. The American Cancer Society says two out of six cancer pa- tients are saved each year, but three out of six could be if they received trealmenl in lime.

Advances are being made in cancer treatments and there is much lhat can be done to help you lead a healthy life. By all means, stay away from home remedies or secret cures for cancer. When a cure for cancer is discovered, it will be the news of the century you'll hear about il and so will your doelor. Stay away fnun quack'; and follow the medical advice of a doctor vou trusl. The secret we're not allowed to print about McMaster's Scotch. You probably know that we import McMasters by the barrel and bottle it here to save on freight and taxes. That accounts for the modest price, i But what you don't know is that McMasters is made by one of the great Scotch distillers (familiar to just about every Scotch drinker around the We're not allowed to say who for obvious reasons.

"II is reasonable to conclude lhat of rap sheets would mean that such information would become available for makmt: arrests." Krvin said Tile study lent support tn complaints that rap sheets often list arrests wilhoul reporting whether the in- dividual was convicted or acquitted. Officials of the three slates involved in the survey Florida, Massachusetts and California told us {hat lack of disposition data or the exis- tence of inaccurate disposition data are serious problems. investigators said. California officials inaccuracies in disposition da- ta in 1110 percent of the sampled records of some courts." the report said. Krvin called lhat appalling. lie said the subcommittee staff is drafting amendments which would block criminal justice agencies from routinely obtaining rap sheds before an arrest. Krvin asserled.

The justice doparliiiciil agrees lhal dislribul ion of criminal records should be restricted ill some respects, Bui Carolyn Havel, an assis- tant in the department's Office of Legislative Affairs, said in- stan'l access tn a suspect's arrest record "could be useful in protecting the lives of law enforcement officers in dealing with hardened criminals."
