A Gyp is trying to reclaim its territory which Israel Nii Laulu by occupied for six Veat he said. . an editorial gunning for Chete the word that reaches us from inside City Hall is that the vote is two to two on the question of Call ing for the resignation of chief of police Art Chete with a fifth vote wavering. Mayor Cooper Tedder and coun Cilman Madison Rainwater Are known to oppose the move. Councilmen a. P. Skinner and Herbert Ham Are reported to he supporting it. Councilman Simons Chase is said to he under heavy pressure from both sides and holds the decisive vote. Next tuesday one year ago chief Chete became Tjie City s chief Law enforcement officer. He came bring ing the professional qualifications and experience needed to upgrade and professionalize the Florence police department. To also came under difficult circumstances. While the Council gave the appearance of unanimity in its Choice it was not a unanimity of conviction. There were pressures upon Council to choose a chief from within the department. The Choice of Chete did not meet with favor among those who preferred promotion from within. The known always appears safer than the unknown. But Council at least the majority acted out of a belief that Florence had reached the stage of growth and that Law enforcement requirements had become so de manding and its methods so sophisticated hat the interests of the City would be Best served by bringing to the head of the department a Man of professional training and experience. Chief Chete accepted the Chal Lenge. He did not come As a glad hander. Neither his personality nor his training permitted him to make associations that would commit him to favors for either the privileged few or the unprivileged Many. He came with ideas about How a Strong slice department should be or and operated. He brought commitment to in Law enforcement. To also brought strength of character and the Cour age of conviction. He has had difficulty within the department among those who re Sist change. He has had problems of political interference from those wishing special favors and special immunities from the Law. He has made some unhappy by his concerted drive against prostitution the numbers Racket gambling and traffic in drugs. We hear reports that opposition by county Law enforcement officers is making his Stork difficult. A prevalent report is that at a meeting of City Council his morn ing an attempt will be made either to fire him or Force his Resigna Tion with councilman Chase hold ing the deciding vote. We cannot verify the certainly of this intention but. There is enough substance to the report that we believe the Public should be alerted. We believe it time for the Public to inform City Council what Type of Law enforcement it wants and whether the voice of a minority is to he the overriding Factor in determining what direction it will take. The Issue is far greater than chief Chete himself. H concerns what image Florence wishes to por tray As a self res peeling Community. A talk with knowledgeable persons will speak of racketeers at work and of Protection by pay offs. Whether this is True w e can not verify but when we hear it from reliable sources we cannot dismiss it without concern. Nor can we remain undisturbed by the politics that scums to be entangling chief Chete before the end of his first year on the Job. The least reasonable expectation is that Council would await any action until full study has been made of the chief s written report on the substantial Progress since he assumed the Job last october i. Only then will they be Able to assess the Mailer with any degree of Obj Chivily.
