He ssd they did not. have many einKS" and save us the figures for lasr Au- p-is; whca. because of tie warm weather and open doors and windows, crime is traditionally highest. In a city of 10 million people, he reported there were only 63 criminal cases ard all were in Ihe categories he men- tioned. Nor.e were crime? asainst persons.
