Staff writer de Gorman re ports City officials feel that an increase in crime is familiar to most cities changing from a town and country atmosphere to metropolitan complexity. The inevitable Solu Tion suggested is an expanded police prospects for such expansion Are not optimistic. A report available to the citizen times lists Cedar rapids As thirty one policemen Short of the nation Al average for cities of equal size.

While absolute numbers May Rise there is no indication of a crime wave As the crimes per capita rate remains pretty much constant. It is just that frequency of crime is More noticeable. There is Little feeling among officials that Cedar rapids has a drastic Lack of police men. Presumably the City will add men to keep Pace with growth. Page 10
