After all. it's not somelhin" one is proud of, especially offi- cials of the Lelhbridge Research station. The story lias finally been put together, the de- tails reconsfrucied. and for Ihe first time anywhere the tragic happening will be made public. One calm day this spring several men (a sure forecast of trouble) made a visit to Henderson Lake. There they discussed the troublesome weeds and the need to eradicate said weeds from the face of the earth. Their conversation was heard with horror! Could it really happen? Here in Lethbridge1? The talk continued. Cutting, spraying, chemical warfare. It didn't seem possible thai in this haven of peace and solitude, such violence could lake place. But the men left and darkness fell, and the hos- tility was soon forgotten by the residents of Hen- derson Lake. It wasn't long afterward, however, that the intru- ders came back, armed this time. The slaughter was determined and cold-blooded. It struck fear into those who were left. They outnumbered the enemy but what defense did they have against such weapons? There was no fight left in them. Faced with com- plete annihilation, they took the only way out suicide. There was time only to select a few hardy in- dividuals lo remain behind to face the terrors of the unknown and to fight with resistance to slay alive. And al last word their efforts have paid off. They are to be left alone to be tested and studied, to be sure, but still alive. For the rest, they lifted their roots from the muck in the lake, bowed their fragile heads and floated away to the Happy Fishing Lake in the sky. Some may say it was the hand of the unknown or attempt to explain the circumstances surrounding the mass and sudden death of thousands, but there it is in one simple world suicide! As Dick Pondweed says: It's a wise weed who knows when it's time to cut out! A tip of the typewriter ribbon to a Miami police- man who carried out his duties because of. despite, and for his wife. He booked her on two driving charges, testified against her in traffic court, paid her S10 fine, and sent her off lo driving school. He's even going lo babysit for her while she learns. And a real loser is John Bernet of London who made a bet with his wife that she couldn't keep her mouth shut for four days. He not only lost his S120 bet. but he didn't hear "I love you" for four days. Wipe your fridge clean and fresh with Cow Brand Soda No harsh chemicals, no soapy film!

KOEHLF.n MrXICH (AP) A kindly, j graying woman of 55 has Iw- j conic the first woman in West Germany to licac! a detective (liri-iiun for a large metropoli- lar. police department. Part of her philosophy is: "Danger- ou? is the policeman who feels happy when he someone biliiiul Tin1 appointment was a [timing point for emancipa- tion in a country which for centuries has c o n s i d c r e il Kiiche, Kueche" the realm of women. That means "children, church, kitchen." For Mathilda Karl it was a personal triumph. She was chosen from among 20 lop po- lice officers lo head (he crimi- nal investigation division of Munich-West, largest district in the Bavarian capital. This makes her responsible for the safety of 300.000 persons. As a rank equivalent to a chief inspector, she directs the work ol 30 men and two women, including three inspectors. She also rales her subordinate's for promotion. MEN'S KEACTION fiOOD ''The reaction of the men under Frat' Karl has been very good." says Herman Ilaering, director of Munich's detectives, who pushed the ap- pointment of a woman to a job heretofore reserved for men. German police departments have long hr.d women detec- tives in segregated divisions, with responsibililics limited lo the investigation of sex crimes involving juveniles, general juvenile delinquency and crime prevention. "I decided (hat we would break through Ihe narrow character of the women's criminal police and use the women for general investiga- tions and for leadership posi- Hacring said. Haering said Fran Karl is "performing brilliantly." lie described her as ''highly intel- ligent, energetic and one who never loses her feminine charm." Eire looks more like a kin- dcTparleit Icacher I h a n a skilled dcleclive trained in judo. She has had her share of perilous assignments. In one she was a decoy to obtain entry into the apartment of a woman who mrde (he plates for a counterfeiting gang. NEVER MARRIED Fran Karl has never mar- ried because she had lo care for her mother until she died a few years ago Trained in Ihe use of fire- arms, she lias never carried a gun, even though her work in crime prevcniiou took her to the sleeziest of the Munich un- derworld bars. In spite o[ having worked on hundreds of morals cases and other emotionally disturbing crimes, Frau Karl has re- mained extremely scnsilive. She readily admits that it was not easy lo adjust: 'r" WOMAN CHIEF Chief inspector Mathilde Karl, 55, welches her boss, Herman Haering, direclor of Munich's deteclive force, as he looks at her district, black border- ed orea upper left, on the map of Munich.
