Family fights cause police fatalities By GEORGE KITCHEN NEW YORK (CP) - On the police radio network, when they dispatch a car to the scene, they call it a 'domestic"-a routine family squabble that someone wants a policeman to settle or break up. The domestic is the dreary, non-crime sort of situation that a policeman likes to avoid, a sometimes embarrassing reluctant intrusion into private emotions and private lives. Investigating a domestic i s n t considered dangerous work, not like chasing a bank robber or trailing a drug pusher. Yet, FBI statistics show that 22 per cent of all police fatalities in the United States come from that humdrum job of investigating problems between man and wife, parents and offspring. That's how Patrolman Don McNeil of tire New York po- lice department came to get a bullet hole in his new leather UteeWhimsy /wash /oUrfa�e' id! r^iyovh V-y \ >u get-\ freezes.

One minute he was investigating a fight between a father and a son in the an upper West Side apartment. The next minute there was the hole in his jacket-and in McNeil's right chest. "At least with a robbery, you're prepared," the 44-year-old patrolman said later as he rested in hospital. 'You walk into somebodys houseman, you don't know what you're in for." TOOK EVASIVE ACTION McNeil and his partner had responded to a complaint from an 80-year-old man that he had bean assaulted by his son. The father met them in the lobby and led them to his apartment. As McNeil entered he saw the son pull a gun. McNeil stepped to the left, as policemen are trained to do when someone is about to shoot them, the theory being that most gunmen are inexperienced and right-handed and their hand jerks to the left. The bullet hit McNeil in the right chest. The son now is awaiting trial. The New York police department in recent years has recognized that 80 per cent of its calls involve non-crime situations, such as domestic calls. It has patterned training around this fact. Using federal funds the department established several years ago a specially-trained family-crisis unit in one of its precincts. In the 21 months that it operated a remarkable thing happened. There were no killings among the 962 families calling for help and no policeman was injured. The experiment ended and the unit was disbanded but its methods have been included in police-training manuals. Sex-switch patients taught mannerisms STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -Patients learn how to set their hair and sit and walk like members of the opposite sex as part of a sex-change program at Stanford University Medical Centre. "Rehabilitation is the main focus of the program," program co-ordinator Pat Gandy said here. "Sursery may or may not be part of an individual's rehabilitative program. "However, if we're going to do this surgery, we want the individual to be able to fit the social norms, to fit into society as normal males or females." Since Stanford, began performing sex-change operations in 1387, about 500 candidates have approached the hospital but only about 10 per cent ac-t u a 11 y underwent surgery, Gandy said. Potential candidates undergo extensive physical and mental testing and are evaluated by a team of doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and former patients, Gandy 'said. He said the evaluators look for motivation and physical resemblance to the opposite sex. They must be physically capable of undergoing the surgery and must have no history of psychosis. "For the 10 per cent who have surgery, it is not done for at least 12 months, when we feel comfortable and the patient feels comfortable with the decision," Gandy said in an interview. "People who would not be candidates may enjoy the role of the opposite sex but don't necessarily desire the surgical change." During the year's wait, patients receive comprehensive counselling as well as hormone treatment, he said. Before and after surgery, they remain in an extensive rehabilitation program which includes a social and physical grooming clinic. "We want the individuals who come to our program to be able to blend into the public," Gandy said. "They learn how to walk, sit and handle themselves like the opposite sex." He said professional models conduct grooming sessions, which cover hand movements, dressing and general body carriage. "In general, among the former patients that have been interviewed, they are probably functioning about 50 per cent better than prior to surgery," Gandy said. "There is an overall improvement in economic status, self satisfaction and relationship with others." ^4 calendt oj^ local appmlnys The Associates of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysists Wives will hold an informal potluck supper Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the Assumption church hail, 2405 12 Ave. S., for members and husbands.
